TUESDAY. MAY 29, 1906.
The country was stirred last year by
ha gilt by Andrew Carnegie of $10,000,
66 to establish a pension fund for col
ic* teachers. The administration of that
uud was put into the hands of a board
»ade up from among the ablest edu
suus in the country, says the Brooklyn
'fuagie." The president of that board, j
dr. Henry S. Pritchett, formerly presi
«IU of the Boston School of Technology,
atplaits in the current “Outlook” the
dans by which the fund is to be distrib
ited, so far ns they have been adopted,
md points out tin.- questions which the
toard must settle hcfoTe the distribution
an begin.
The purpose of Mr. Carnegie and of
he trustees of the Carnegie Foundation
s not merely to relieve want among the
wperaruuflted teachers of American col
eges. but to establish the retiring pen
J
don as a principle in college administra-^
Ion. Of the two the principle of the pil
lion fund is the more important, becamse.
vhile the halt million a year ineornd from
Vlr. Carnegie's gift would be inadequate
:o meet all thd eases calling/for relief,
f .
f the principle becomes established fur
ther pensions will be provided, either by |
idditions to the .Foundation, from the
mdowmeut of the rich colleges, or by
.•oration in the State universities, which
will more and more lead educational pro
peas iu the west.
The endowment is broadly American
in that it applies without distinction to
!be colleges of the United States, of Can
ids and of Newfoundland. These three
countries report 327 colleges employing
3,207 teachers at an average salary of
51.550 a year. The number of these col
eges whose faculty will be entitled to
the aid of the fund is sharply limited
' ay the act of incorporation, which pro
vides that ■'retiring pensions shall be paid
:o such teachers only as are or have been
tonueeted with institutions not under the
rontrol of a sect.” Of the 327 colleges
reported 21S have some denominational
roi auction. This requires that the trus
tees shall determine which on that list
e under such denominational control
s to be excluded from the pension fund
lenetits. Next the trustees must decide
what is a college within the meaning of
the endowment, and the third difficult
>"int is how far pensions from" a private
'Mat should be paid to teachers employed
i: S-art- institutions, wrhich have a tax

'Che obvious purpose «f these aistiuc
tioDs U to etenriat* tt* rHfcamufit of
teachers who have coached afatty-five,
when their greatest usefulness is proba
bly over, and to favor the professors ia
the small and poor colleges, whose heroic
devotion and self-sacrifice in the cause
of education make one of the noblest
chapters of American history. When the
decision is reached as to how far denom
inational and state institutions shall be
included in the distribution, the retire
ments may be expected to begin. Only
ns the provision for the old age of indi
vidual workers comes to be known will
the full beneficence of the plan be under
stood. This pension fund will mark a
new epoch in American education and
will establish a new policy in the treat
ment of teachers. Eventually all
schools will be forced to adopt the prin
ciples laid down by this Foundation, and
no American need be deterred from tak
ing up teaching by the fear that his old
j?4e will be poverty-stricken, or that he
may be a burden upon his children.
Mr. La Follette. of Wisconsin, has been
paying his respects to the law-breaking
railroad companies. In his recent speech
he gave a brief history of an investiga
tion of the business of the railroads of
his State by experts installed in the prin
cipal offices of the railroads for the pur
pose of examining their books and ascer
taining the gross receipts for purposes of
taxation. It was found that the roads
had for years persistently misrepresented
the facts; that, in their reports they had
reduced their gross receipts by the
amount of the rebates paid to favored
shippers, which reached the sum of $7.
000.000. Ho thought that the practice
of paying rebates in violation of law was
due to the fact that the penalty consisted
only of a fine, and uid not involve impris
onment. Mr. La Foliette’s speech will
make an excellent campaign document
for the Democrats next fall.
Attorney-General Ellis, of Ohio, has
ben invited to Washington by the Presi
dent to confer about the prosecution of
the Standard Oil Trust. If more infor
mation is really wanted on this subject,
the Attorney-General of WTest Virginia
might give some evidence, especially of
the connection of Senator Elkins with the
octopus and its donation to the Republi
can campaign fund of that State when
Elkins was electing a Legislature in his
interest.
Control of the nation’s purse strings
is power. When royalty loses control
representative government begins.

AMUSEMENTS
Manhattan Baaoh Ball Ground
The New Manhattan Beach Baseball
gronud, formerly the bicycle track, which
ie onw controlled by the Brighton Bench
Park Company, with seating capacity for
over 10,000 people, will open on Decora
tion Day. The new Manhattan Beach
Baseball Club, formerly tha Ridgewoods,
with Linderman the pitcher, will meet
the Colored Brooklyn Royal Giants on
that day, and thereafter games will be
played every Saturday, Sunday and holi
day during the season.
On Thursday, June 14th, the biggest
outdoor show that Coney Island has ever
seen. Pawnee Bill’s Wild West and Far
East, with over 1,000 performers and
animals will hold forth in the big Bright
on Beach arena, which was used last sea
son by the Boer War. In its program
this organization in eludes three dramatic
spectacles; viz: Mt. Mador Massacre,
Custer’s Last Battle, and the Burping of
Trapper Tom’s Cabin. For fifteen years
past, Major G. W. Lillie, better known
asP awnee Bill, lias been the rival of
Buffalo Bill, and is credited with carry
ing just as big an aggregation of wild
people as the redoubtable Cody has. But
local conditions here have kept him out
of New York City, the same conditions
that have prevented the Ringling Bros.
and other great organizations from pitch
ing their tents in Greater New York.
Throughout the United States Pawnee
Bill has long been considered the premier
Wild West promoter, and at Brighton
Beach he ist o have a pictorial surround
ing never before given a show' of this
character. The scenic backing which is
already in place, shows the Wild Rockies,
and gives one a magnificent idea of the
grandeur of our Western country. In
connection with the Big Show, Pawnee
Bill’s Indian Museum and Encampment
will prove a novel innovation. All of his
organization will be quartered in an enor
mous encampment covering twenty acres,
representing a Wild Western village, and
together with the other savage people liv
ing in their own native dwellings. New
Y'orkers will be given a chance to get a
peep behind the scenes of circus life, for
the whole tented city with its living and
eating accommodations will be open to
he public.
Pawnee Bill will parade through New
Y'ork City and Brooklyn the night of
June 12th. There will be no admission
fee charged to Brighton Beach Park.
Majestic Theatre.
De Wolf Hopper finds one thorn in
the pleasure he has in the success of
his present starring medium, “Happy
land.” The tall comerian some time ago
arranged for an automobile trip through
the British Isles this summer and, be
lieving that hie season would end about
the last week in May, had- expected to
sail on June 2nd. But the demand for
"Happyland” in the metropolis is slch
that it is scheduled for an indefinite run
at the Majestic Theatre. In fact the
Ranken-De KoKven comic opera is ex
pected to remain at the playhouse the
entire summer. Therefore Mr. Hopper
will do most of his automobiling between
the theatre and his estate at Douglas
Manor, oLng Island.

Arnold Daly has revived the Bernard
Shaw playlet, “How He Lied to Her
