Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont is standing behind Mrs. Hovre. The above photo
graph -was taken last fall when Mrs. Howe attended tine suffragret meeting
at Mrs. Belmont's Newport home. A sudden change of weather brought on the
brief illness of the venerable poet, and although her health seemed to im
prove for several days, she became worse, lapsed into unconsciousness and
passed away quietly at 11:30 a. m., Oct. 17. Mrs. Howe's most famous inspir
ation was the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." She was 91 years of age when
seized by her last illness.

Foot Passengers the Chief Suffers in Cities, But in Eural
Districts the Automobilists Themselves Furnish a
Majority of the Victims Slaughter
in Motor Racing.
F7IGURES recently gathered by the
teaerai -government, from one point
or view, is a very expensive inven
tion. It is a great source of pleasure"
to multitudes of people, and an im
portant aid to civilization, but the toil
it takes of human lives is nothing short
of frightful.
Very Destructive.
As the motor car has srown more
(popular, it has naturally become more
I destructive. In the year 1906 automo
j biles killed 3GC persons in this country.
In 1907 they took 588 lives. In 1908
1 they wiped out 786 people.
ijiebe are vae ugures oi tne census,
wrhi.?h estimates Uiat, at a rough guess,
1000 persons will be killed by motor
pars in the United States during1 the 12
fnonths of 1910. It would he close to
the -truth to say that the automobile
in this country costs three lives a day.
The tax is undeniably a heavy one.
In rural districts the chief sufferers
are the automobilists themselves the
most common kind of accident they erf
counter being collisions with railroad
trains. One might suppose that drivers
of motor cars would be so on their guard
against dangers of this particular sort
that such happenings would be rare, but
the fact is that they are of constant oc
currence as one may perceive by an at
tentive perusal of the newspapers from
day to day.
Racing With Trains.
Xothing is more common than to hear
of instances in which automobiles have
deliberately raced with locomotives, the
object in view being to get over the
crossing before the arrival of the train
at that point. It is literally a race with
j death, and must be extremely exciting;
j but most people would rather get their
excitement in some less hazardous way
j On the other hand, most fatal auto
mobita accidents in cities find their vie
tiros in foot passengers who are run
over on the streets. During six weeki
in uctousr ana jsovemoer or last vear i
17 children were killed in this manner ! serve how the sober and sane minded
in Greater Xew York. Indeed, mortality ' everyday citizen is affected morally bv
from this cause in lare centers of pop j the nabit of driving an automobile. His
ulation is largely among boys and girls, J customary caution, in many instances,
a great majority of whom have no ; gives way to a recklessness altogether
playgrounds other than the streets, and astonishing. Ordinarily most consider

I come along.
New York Slaughter.
Sixty-eight persons were killed by au-
tTnohilp in firpntf..- Pir Vort- a,,
the vear 1909 just about half of this
number meeting their tranric fate on
lanhatlan island. In many of these
j cases, where people were run over, the
j drivers of the cars were probably not
j to blame. It is difficult to run a gaso
line propenea. venicie xnrouga a city
wheels. But who; a generation ago,
crowaed with tramc on loot and on
could liaYe imagined that the time would
eter arrive wuen locomotives wouia oe
allowed to run on the streets-: and not
on rails, at that?
A custom long established among the
prudent demands that before attempt
ing to cross a railroad, one shall paus
and look both ways, to make sure that
no train is coming. If a train is seei
approaching, even though it be a con
J siderable distance away, one waits unti'
it has passed. But in these das an
important city street is more dangerou3
to cross than a railroad especially in
view of the circumstances that autonuv
biles are not restricted to tracks. A
motor car may even whisk unexpectedl
around a corner at any moment, catch
ing the wayfarer unawares. But people
ordinarily do not wait : the- simply t3e
their chance5, and dode.
Occupants Sufferers.
They do not alwa3's escape, however,
as the mortalit' records show. But it
is interesting to learn that, taking tl
whole country over, two out of ever
three automobile victims are occupants
of the cars which suffer the accidents.
Some are killed in collisions with loco
motives, in the manner already describ
ed ; others are upset while soing at lril)
speed (the vehicle often ''turning tur
tle") ; still others run over embank'
ments, and yet others are blown un bj
explosions of gasoline. There are a
good many ways of d3'ing in a motor
It goes without saying that a great
majority cf the fatal accidents to peo
ple riding in automobiles are attribut
( able to fast driving. Most nersons who
drive 6uch vehicles have little or no
knowledge of mechanics, and lack the
special training which would enable
them to tlo the right thin? quickly and
instinctively in a perilous emergency
The average man is elated by the abilit
to command superhuman speed by the
touch of a finger. He uses this marvel
ous power recklessly, not realizing the
danger, and it i3 not surnrising that in
frequent instances he should bring de
struction upon himself and others.
The Speed Maniac.
This is what is called the ffspeed
maniac." Put a great force in the hands
of an ignorant person a description ap
plicable to very many motorists and he
will surely misuse it. If he himself
were the only sufferer, one might be
resigned; but he kills other people. Oh,
yes; it happens every day. And is this
dangerous individual punished? Not at
all. He pays a small fine, perhaps, and
goes on his way rejoicing. The law
rarely makes any attempt to inflict a
penalty for misdeeds of the kind.
In fact, jail sentences for such of
fences are almost unknown. The court
records everywhere show an amazing
lack not only of convictions in cases of
the sort, but even of indictments for
automobile killings. They can harder
be said to be rated as anything so im
portant as misdemeanors. Xo wonder,
then, that thev continue. Manslaughter
iby automobile is today the safest of all
forms of crime the term being not in
the slightest degree inappropriate where,
as so often happens, a deliberate indif
ference to putting others' in eril is ac
countable for the fatality.
Any observant individual is in a posi
tion to notice that the average driver
of an automobile is not accustomed to
pause in order to avoid running over a
foot passenger on the street-. As a mat
ter of fact, at crossings, the foot pas
senger has the right of wav- but to
this the motorist pavs no regard. He
'"honks" his horn, and, if the unfortun
ate pedestrian does not get out of the
way, so much the worse for him. Only
the other da3T an old man in the citv
of Washington was mn down and killed
i in exactly this manner. He could not
things are constant!- happening.
The Right of Way.
Wiry should the motorist consider that
he always, and under all circumstances,
has the right of way? It is because he
possesses the force majeure, and nobody
is in a position to dispute with him. By
no means let it be said that a maiority
of automobile drivers are indifferent to
the rights of others; but certain it is
that a large percentage of them are so,
the traitbeing most strikingly exhibited
by the individual who. as the represen
tatives of a tj'pe only too common, has
come to be known as the 'Toad hog."
He cares for nobody. If he makes an
"accidental" killing, his conscience does
not trouble him in the least. hat bus
iness had the idiot to be in the way?
If practicable, he runs for it, leaving
the victim to take hi chances, and
usually escapes. h
Onlj- a few weeks ago, in the outskirts
of Manhattan borough (New York eitv.
a couple of men in a touring car, ac
companied by three or four women,
after dark in the evening going at great
speed, ran through a group of four men,
knocking them down and killing two.
When a policemafn, standing near by,
tried to halt them, they kept rip-hc o
the women yelling back with' jeers of
derision. Of course, they got away, and
were never caugnt or punished.
Drinking and Speedme.
Drunk? Doubtless, j'es. But this is
one of the principal causes of automo
bile killings. People go out in automo
biles for pleasure; they stop, quite as
a matter of course, tor drinks. The
alcoholic refreshments they imbibe maJ-c
them reckless, and, on their way home
the feeling on board is that it matters
not whether school keeps or not. But
it matters quite a good deal to the
luckless victims whom they run over.
This sort of thing is unquestionably ac
countable for a considerable percehtagp
or the deaths from, motor accidents.
Jlost remarkable it is, however, to ol-
rights of bis fellow beincrs. When his
'attention is called to an obvious viola-
tl0n ,of fuch r&hts " himself, he laughs,
and looks upon it as a ioke. When rmn
s driving an automobile, one is too
bus- with the business of "getting
there" to bother with ethical obstacles.
Many Are Killed.

dent is turning at high speed, ui course,

road, but to do s6 is onty ordinary prud
ence. If this be not done, the wheels
