BELL A STUDY OF LIFE The New York Sun speaks in this characteristic manner of the late Henry H. Rogers : A generation or so ago the "millionaire" whose life in low estate began was an idol even in the Sunday School books. Oli -; ver Uptic s heroes would be content to marry such a man's daugh ter after "rescuing her from a watery grave." Frugal, pious, generous, the "millionaire" was honored, held up as a model for aspiring and hungry youth, became at death the subject of eulogy. Clergymen praised him. There was no "taint" to his money. Frank Philistines, the Americans did not conceal their admiration of prosperity. Young, healthy, simple, unliterary, the country honored the self-made man. Even Solomon Gunny bags, as Mr. G. W. Curtis used to call the loud and parvenu type, escaped indignation. The muckraker was not. The millionaire lived respected and died happy. Wealth, never earned by altruistic and gentle methods, is in these days a defendant. Almost everybody from the late Pres ident of the United States to the feeblest magazinist has his "whack" at it. "Millionaire" has given way to "billionaire." A rich man who courts popularity "goes in for" socialism or some thing of that kind. The self-made billionaire is regarded as an enemy of mankind, yet as money begts money scores of more or less worthy persons make a comfortable living by writing him down. Politicians and platforms spout at him. He is the villain of portentious and superheated novels. Clergymen denounce him from the pulpit. The Good Example of the old day has become the Devil of the new. Is there a genius for humbug among Americans? Are they greater hypocrites ttian other folks? Or by this ferocious hue and cry against the rich do they satirize themselves and their own unchanged aspiration for wealth? For we take ito be notorious that never w r ere Americans so hungry and thirsty for money, so eager to eat and drink and automobile, so passionately and pro foundly given to material enjoyments. Let us see what sermons are preached and what articles "hurled" at that Standard Oil man, Henry H. Rogers, a master of money making and the most human of a batch of allied "bil lionaires" that seems to have a sort of heaven bom genius for milking the poblic and that harvests dislike even by the unsym pathetic virtues of some of its members. Mr. Rogers, the shrewd, dry, witty Cape Cod Yankee, the friend of Mark Twain, a man of much distinction of person, and one of the best story tellers of the time, was perhaps the boldest, the most subtle, the most feared, and to the public mind the most sinister of all the brother ogres that have grown to be a legend and superstition. He had just built a railway. He was capable of building a fleet of war ships. He knew his business, whether he was a brakeman or a petroleum "king." He got what he wanted out of people and out of life. He attained in fact what is the prevailing American am bition. Whatever he was, he was not a hypocrite. We don't feel so sure about a good many of his countrymen. They worship the business Superman, and yet they damn him, unless, like Mr. Carnegie, he repents, reforms, makes restitu tion—out of his income. Many ill and bitter things have been said about Mr. Rogers, but nobody has dared to say that he was the least bit like that new Roman the Thane of Skibo. Let us all, who can, be glad that we are not rich and not tainted ; and if we must be tainted, be it with envy, not money. SOME WONDERFUL FIGURES Do not be alarmed by figures. It is now and then instructive and profitable to pause for a space and study them a little, espe cially if they help you in keeping a grip on facts that may aid or guide your judgment. The Bureau of Statistics of the Department of Commerce and Labor at Washington has just issued a compilation covering the world's international commerce for 1907, the latest year for which such comprehensive information is attainable. • Between sixty and seventy countries and colonies are included in this compilation. The international exchanges of commodities for 1907 were valued in round numbers at $30,000,000,000. The details of this amazing movement of products, chiefly to and fro across the great seas, are interesting not merely to the man in trade, but to the man of imagination and sentiment. Attention may be for a moment profitably directed to certain specially im pressive facts. In these seething and sensational days much is heard of the assumed decadence of Great Britain and of her diminishing im portance in the world of affairs. There is a disposition to regard her no longer as a dominant factor in financial, commercial and international politics. This disposition largely comes from the dazzling effect of the newly-recognized tremendous development of Germany. But, after all, is it not a most remarkable fact that the United Kingdom, so small in area, still stands at the head of all nations in the matter of foreign commerce? For the purposes of com parison, take the four countries, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and France, and what do we find? For 1907 the exports of the United Kingdom were in round numbers $2,073,000,000; United States, $1,835,000,000; Germany, $1,629,000,000; France, $1,080,000,000. The imports of the United Kingdom were $3,143,000,000; United States, $1,194,000, 000; Germany, $2,082,000,000; France, $1,201.000,000. | It thus appears that the total foreign commerce of the four countries was as follows: United Kingdom, $5,276*000,000; United States, $3,029,000,000; Germany, $3,711,000,000; France, go 974 000 000. ^Tfhe'United Kingdom stood $2,187,000,000 ahead of the United States, $1,505,000,000 ahead of Germany, and $2,942,000,000 ahead of France! As long as the United Kingdom is able to make showing like that in international trade, she deserves the re spect of the world for the wonderful achievement. . A BODY BLOW This body blow at the robber tariff is from the Oregonian : Historians of the future will recount with contempt how the Almighty gave the American people coal, ore, petroleum, timber; and everv other natural resource in quantities never before parai leled, and how this people, instead of taking the good of what the Lord had given them imposed heavy taxes upon the use of it, which they paid out of their own pockets, while a few privileged citizens 1 and the inhabitants of other countries reaped the benefit. Nothing quite so idiotic has been seen in the history of the world before, and yet we are in the habit of boasting of our National shrewd- ness.* Some of us are shrewd, but it is not those who submit to 1 tariff extortion. While Mr. Taft was discoursing on fools, as he did last Wednesday, he might well have added a few words about that vast category of them who cheerfully pay tariff taxes for the benefit of the trust barons in America and the European con- sumers. Oregonian : The American lumberman needs no protection. To a man whom the Lord has given standing timber in super water power and coal accessible and exhaustless, and the most intelligent labor in the world, protection is entirely su nerfluous His demand for it shows either that he does not know how to use his natural advantages or that he is not satisfied with a reasonable return for his exertions, but desires to rob some body else rooming houses.
