A Paris newspaper has been engaged in the
interesting pursuit of finding out the wifely
characteristics most in demand among French
men. It asked how, in the opinion of its read
ers, the following thirteen qualities should bo
graded in point of importance : Beauty, kind
ness, courage, constancy, fidelity, goodnature,
brightness, frankness, cleverness, wealth, health,
wit and talent.
Some twenty thousand men sent in answers,
and two surprising results are noted. The ma
jority put wealth about half way down the list,
and beauty last of all. Good nature was in
great demand, as were kindness, health and con
stancy. It would bo interesting to learn how a similar
inquiry would turn out in this country. Those
who put wealth and beauty pretty well down
in the list show wisdom which it is" to be hoped
they are capable of putting in practice when
they marry. Wealth and beauty are desirable
indeed, but neither will make up for the lack of
good nature, kindness or constancy. Beautv
doesn't last, but good nature is an abiding joy.
"Wealth takes wings, but kindness is a sure
refuge in time of stress.
"Those who insist that their wives shall have
all these qualities, the whole thirteen wrapped
in in one engaging bundle of feminine loveliness,
doubtless will have trouble in ranging the sev
eral qualities in their most desirable order. But
then anybody who expects to find a life compan
ion with all thirteen qualities is altogether too
sanguine and optimistic to be seriously consid
ered. These qualities group themselves naturally
into three divisions: The homely virtues of
kindness, courage, health, constancy, frankness,
fidelity and good nature; the artificial virtue of
wealth in a class by itself; and the more showy
virtues of beauty, brightness, cleverness, wit
and talent. It is a safe prediction that if the
young men of any city should register their
preference in these three divisions, in the aver
age the division of homely virtues would come
first, the division of wealth second, and the di
vision of brilliancy last. The average young
man would find wealth beyond his hope, and
he would be a little fearful of the showy quali
ties. Tie would be inclined to be skittish about
mating with a woman more brilliant than him
self, though if he were mentally up to the ordeal
of living with a bright, clever, witty and talent
ed woman it would be a privilege indeed.
It is too much to expect to find all thirteen
qualities in ono woman, much as one would like
to find such a creature, how would you rank
those qualities? Would you put beauty first, or
last? AVould you demand wealth first, or good
nature? AVould you rank health first, or wit?
Would you rather have a talented wife, or a
kind one? Do you place constancy higher than
Everybody is familiar enough with, the econo
mic arguments against inordinate individual
wealth, because it is so plain that a few cannot
get too much without leaving the many too lit
tle. The moral objections to concentrated wealth,
too, are obvious, because it is bad for the morals
of the rich to be rich, and it is bad for the mor
als of the poor to be poor; both poverty and
riches tend to undermine moral fiber, and both
bring their peculiar .temptations.
The physical objections are less familiar, but
not the less powerful for that. The disintegra
tion of physical fiber from rich living fortunate
ly attacks only a few ; but the sapping of human
energy by malnutrition caused by too small a
supply of food or too restricted a diet unfor
tunately attacks very many.
The Medical Record puts the pathological
case against the unfair distribution of wealth,
as follows
"In respect to the sociological and health pro
blems created by excessive fortunes, the physi
cian, in an individual way, has opportunity to
work for society through his intimate profes
sional relations with the very rich. He can hon
estly assert that the creation of unduly great
fortunes is a benefit neither to their possessors
nor to the race. Ability habitually to overin
dulge in costly indigestible food and drink and
to avoid physical labor, combined with the ex
cessive nervous strain of business. competition
and the complexities of social life, have their
results in the steadily rising rates for disabil
ity and death from neurasthenia, gout, rheuma
tism, and the diseases of the heart, kidneys and
circulatory apparatus. The poor man, with all
his ills dependent upon malnutrition, fortunate
ly escapes that of corpulency, a condition that
was recently shown had never, in the experi
ence of the two largest insurance companies, ex
isted in risks who survived to a good old age.
Both extremes in the social scale have their spe
cial perils.
"As doctors we appreciate that beyond the
ability to provide for all one's physical and
mental needs, the acquisition of wealth serves no
useful purpose; while the corresponding de
privation under which the general public is
thus made to labor has too profound an influ
ence on the race to permit us to countenance
wealth-getting as a pastime or an obession. The
collection of dollars has quite a different effect
upon the community from that of the collection
of postage stamps, for example. And when the
man with superabundance apparently regards
money-getting as a sport, like hunting, it is well
to recall that nearly all our states now have laws
fixing a legal limit to the bag of quail or trout.
Nor does the ultimate good disposition of great
wealth repair the damage wrought by its ac
cumulation. With all appreciation toward those
who build hospitals, endow institutions and do
nate libraries, nothing they thus do can com
pensate the race as a whole for the results of
the less wholesome conditions and environments
which continual denial of their adequate share
in tho rewards of industry have brought about."
That's pretty go.od reasoning from every so
cial, economic, moral or pathological viewpoint.
The idea of putting a legal limit on the game
bag of the dollar-chaser, as tho states put a le
gal limit on the gamebag of the trout-angler, is
particularly good. It is worth thinking over
when the program for the new birth of liberty
that is coming is being framed.

Who will be benefitted by a tariff war between
tho United States and Canada, which will be on
in earnest after March 31 unless President Taft
shall be able to certify before that time that
there is no undue discrimination against Amer
ican goods in the operation of the Canadian
The best answer to this query are the reports
being received in Washington from Canadian
commercial .centers. These reports are to the
effect that manufacturers and jobbers of Great
Britain and Germany are rushing their sales
men and representatives into Canada for the
purpose of soliciting the business that has here
tofore been handled by. American manufactur
ers, but which, we can not hope to retain after
the tariff war opens.
The exports from the United States to Can
ada in 1908 exceeded $157,000,000. The chief
items were agricultural implements, animals,
books, brass, breadstuff's, cars and carriages,
patent medicines, coal, raw cotton, cordage,
fruits, electrical appliances, manufactures of
iron and steel, machinery, boots and shoes,
meats, writing.paper, tin, tobacco, manufactures
of wood and manufactures of wool.
If we put our 25 per cent ad valorem duty in
effect against Canadian imports, Canada is pre
pared to immediately put into effect against
imports from the United States a surtax equiv
alent to one-third of the regular duties. This
will deprive the United States of probably 80
per cent of our Canadian business. Will any
body in the United States be advantaged by a
tariff war that curtails the export to Canada of
the $157,000,000 worth of articles enumerated
above? Tf so, who?
Not only will the United States lose the great
er part of this business during the life of tho
tiv'f wai, but we will lose a certain large pro
portion of the business forever, because while
the tariff war is on, English and German firms
will have an opportunity to build up a large
clientelle in Canada, a very considerable pro
portion of which they will naturally be able o
Wheathe Dingley law was framed in 189G the
exercise of a little foresightedness on the part
of American statesmen would have made of Can
ada an economic dependency oT the United
States. At that time the Canadian leaders
were eager and willing to establish free trade
between Canada and the United States. Such a
move would have laid open the tremendous
sources of raw material in Canada to the manu
facturers of the United States, owl would have
made of Canada an immense buyer of United
States inanufactures. The American statesmen
however, proceeded on a grab-it-all-and-give-nothing-back
policy, which has made of Cjnnada
an independent commercial nation.
Canada's broad-minded offers of 189G having
been turned down by the United States, she has
since repeatedly refused to consider reciprocal
commercial concessions with us. In 1897, one
year after the Dingley law was enacted, Canada
took a slap at the United States by granting to
Great-Britain and most of the British colonies
a preferential reduction of 12 1-2 per cent in its
tariff rates. In 1893 the reduction was increased
to 25 per cent and in 1900 to 331-3 per cent,
and it now averages 30 per cent and applies
uniformly on all articles. It is because of prefer
ential rates to France, that the American-Canadian
commercial struggle will begin.
Back in 189G Canada was not a manufactur
ing nation in the sense that it could hope to sup
ply its own needs in manufactured goods.- It
.has not even yet approximated such a condition,
but a tariff war at this time with the United
States will go a long way toward making Cana
da independent of our markets.
The result of our refusal to be liberal to Can
ada in the Dingley law was that there were es
tablished in Canada during the succeeding ten
years not less than 150 important industries.
One-half of the iron and steel industry and one
fifth of the lumber and woodworking establish
ments of the entire dominion were thus estab
lished. In Hamilton alone there were thirty-six
manufacturing firms established, a part or all
of the capital for which came from the United
States. The Illinois Manufacturers' association
in a report, stated that 122 of the leading man
ufacturing concerns of the United States had
established branch plants and mills in Canada
during that period.
These facts are significant. They mean, on
the one hand, that large American manufactur
ing concerns have found it cheaper to establish
branch plants in Canada than to manufacture
in the United States and pay the tariff duties to
get their goods into Canada. Every time Amer
ican concerns build a branch plant across the
line, they reduce productivity of American man
ufactures in proportion to their product in Can
ada, and they deprive the laborer of the United
States of just that much work, while at the same
time reducing the exports of the country by a
like amount. And if tho Dingley rates' alone
were sufficient to put Canada on its feet as a
manufacturing nation, will not an additional 25
per cent ad valorem duty come near niakinn-
Canada wholly independent of American man
ufactures? Tariff wars constitute ono of the bad features
of protection. Every nation which has ever fig
ured in a tariff war has reported that it was
beneficial to neither producer nor consumer, and
that export trade lost during the war was never
afterward regained.
