ANOTHER AVIATOR GOES TO HIS DEATH.
EUGENE ELY, the most famous of American aviators, plunged
to his death at Macon, Ga., yesterday, making the AOlst
victim of aviation. In many rases, as in this, the fatal lisk
taken was as unnecessary as the speed which the maniac in the
motorcar puts on to hurl him to his death. Ely was making a
spectacular dip to thrill the crowd and the airship went wrong.
Had he been content with merely navigating the air his life would
have been spared and his horror-stricken audience would have been
much better entertained.
AN Al DRICH CURRENCY PLAN SUPPLEMENT.
(P'S. EXATOR ALDRien’S supplemental plan of currency reform,
submitted on behalf of the National Monetary Commission,
i: explained as intended to minimize the chance of central
groups or combinations of banks or capitalists to get control. State
he!'.' ; and trust companies are given the privilege of association.
That is one necessary feature of a new currency system. Pro
vi- en is made for saving departments in national hanks and 40
per cent. of i he saving deposits can be loaned on productive real
(state. The National Reserve Association must hold 50 per cent,
of its liabilities in cash. A cash reserve amounting to one-third
(if outstanding notes must he maintained. In regard to the $700,
000,(TO 2 p r cent, bonds held by the banks, as the bonds are taken
ouj y the reserve association they are to he refunded into 3 per
cents without circulation privileges and the association is to pay
a franc!:':." tax of IA per cent, annually on the bonds. The plan
eoiit( 11:*11;:t( s an arrangement by which the banks can reinforce
their i: serves when necessary. Commercial paper can be redis
count'd immediately with the reserve association. The original
plan of a central bank submitted by Mr. Aldrich was not received
with any high degree of favor, and this supplementary plan must
i" .'(is be closely scrutinized by bankers and financial experts. Out
of i; all some plan of currency reform can be evolved.
.4 REFORMER FOR WOMEN'S FASHIONS.
-pp RESIDENT MRS. HOWARD WARREN, of the Slate
j..'"" ! i delation of Women's Flubs, is a daring reformer of her
:-v President Warren would enforce some fashions in
lift.,, a curiailmeiit <>f the length of the hatpin as well as of the
size < !' I lie hat, the abolition of false hair and puffs, the use of the
plumage of slaughtered birds and women’s extravagance generally
in decorating their persons. Rut it is a far erv to reform in these
J ni ticulins. Ridicule is a most effective weapon in most cases, but
it lies novel had the slightest effect on feminine fashions. As for
logi , ii urn., he cried from the housetops and find no listeners.
Rut Uv federation president should not be discouraged. There
may mise a great lenHion a mi maybe it will be coincident with the
incorporation of a liual suffrage amendment in the Federal Con
COMMISSION GOVERNMENT AND PROHIBITION.
BX the commission form of government on the* model of the
Walsh art “the government becomes a strong ally of the
Anti-Saloon League and stimulates local option,” w’as stated
in a report adopted by the New Jersey Synod at Atlantic City yes
terday. The report strongly favored prohibition, condemned the
interstate commerce law, thi* greatest of statutes, as “the greatest
cnenn of prohibition’’ and charged collusion between the national
government and the liquor interests. But the reference to a com
mission government contains the essence of the truth. Every pro
hibition voter in the nineteen New Jersey municipalities that have
had special elections under the Walsh act voted for commission
government, instinctively recognizing that it was an open door to
DEATH TO THE MANCHU.
THE Chinese have long memories. One evidence of that is
their worship of ancestors. A century is only a span in the
history of China. When the Manchus, an alien race, came
into power, seized the imperial diadem and all the offices of honor
and emolument, they massacred hordes of the Chinese. That was
about twp hundred and fifty years ago, and the Incident was as
yesterday to the Chinaman. The worm has turned and the hunted
has become the hunter. It is the Manchu who submits to massacre
this time, and wherever the revolution spreads it means death to
the Manchu. The conquering and dominating race may not have a
representative alive on the soil of China at the close of the present
REPUBLICANS TAKE THE STUMP.
SOME of the "big guns” of the Republican State organization
are beginning to be heard. Former Governor Stokes made
a characteristic deliverance at Burlington last night, his
speech being mainly a criticism of Governor Wilson and a refutation
of his recent campaign statements. He will make addresses else
where. Former Governor Fort is expected to be in evidence soon,
and former Governor Griggs is expected to speak in Passaic an.l
Bergen counties. Perhaps with a few more prominent speakers of
both parties on the stump the prevailing inertia in politics may to
some extent be overcome.
TRUNK SEWER OR LOCAL DISPOSAL, WHICH?
DF the three boroughs of Haledon, Prospect Park and Totowa
• lev \ m! I in i will seek to join in the trunk
sewer enterprise without regard to cost, and if they succeed
they can deem themselves fortunate. Thereafter they will have no
sewerage question on their hands and real estate in the three
boroughs will soon lie increased in volume by an amount much
in excess of the difference in cost between the trunk sewer and
leoal disposal if, indeed, the lutter is practicable.

To the Editor of the Evening Star:
That Webster dictionary ofTer In your
paper Is one of the best and m jst
progressive offers that has been made
for a long time. What I like about the
hook particularly Is its handy form.
It also promises wearing qualities that
must not be forgotten.
Although I have been a reader ill my
life, a student of the English language,
and have dictionaries and books of ref
erence at home, I find that, as a. mut
ter of convenience, your offer beats
them all. What Is more, the book Is
more up-to-date than some of the
bulky ones I have at home.
I trust that In the Interest of educa
tion generally the offer will be kept up
for a long time. Such a book wou cl

To the Edttor of the Evening Star:
Much good has been done by the
Board of Public Utility Commissioners,
although that body has been growled
at as more ornamental than useful, and
as Involving the taxpayers in needless
It seems to have found a way to
give us cheaper gns, and now it has
stretched its beneficent arms towards
the seashore, in which a multitude of
Newarkers are interested, and decided
that the Long Branch Railroad Com
pany must stop its trains at Asbury
Park on Sunday.
To those who have had occasion to
use this railroad to this particular
point on this particular day the
news is most welcome. It is a long
step towards a much-needed reform.
This board really appears to be a
public body that sees its duty and
does it. A. P.
Doesn't Like Smoke.
To the Editor of the Evening Star:
Does not the sign, "Positively No
Smoking," on the back platform of our
trolley cars apply to persons inside the
car as well? It is simply disgusting for
a lady to go Into a car and sit down
beside: a man with a lighted cigar In
his hand. If you speak to him he will
tell you that he is not smoking, but
what is the difference if he holds a
smoking cigar? I have seen inspectors
talking to men in the cars who were
eithgr smoking or had a lighted cigar
in their hands. I think that it is up to
the Public Service to stop this evil be
fore it becomes unbearable. Thanking
you for your assistance In this matter.
MRS. J. J. HOBBS.
Plenty of Time to Flirt.
To the Editor of the Evening Star:
Most men think that giving up a
seat in a trolley car entitles them to
a flirtation, while 1 say that it does not
even Entitle them to a “Thank you."
The average man in the ears is more
Interested in his newspaper than in any
person in the car. Many men give up
tliclr scats to hobble-skirted young
women, who are out for pleasure, while
elderly ladies and tired working women
are compel!: ' to stand. There are
plenty of opportunities for tlirtlng in
Newark without intruding unwelcome
attentions. I have a friend who says
that his energies belong to his firm and
for that reason he keeps his seat going
to and from work, no matter who is
standing, but I think that a man
should always give up his seat to a
lady without delay or profuse apolo

Christy Mathewson, the star twirler
of the New York Giants, is not much
of a story-teller, but he did unreel
this one not long ago at a fan fest at
McGraw's billiard room, in New York:
"The teacher of the English class at
one of the local high schools had de
manded that the pupils write for their
daily exercise a short account of a ball
game. On# lad sat all through the
exercise time apparently wrapped in
deep thought, but had no exercise paper
to turn in when the teacher de
manded It. „
"He was told to remain after school
and again ordered to write the exer
cise. being given a time limit of five
minutes by the teacher in which to
complete the essay. The failure to do
so meant a whipping.
“When the time was within a minute
of being up the lad’s face beamed into
a smile as he scratched this on his
tablet and handed it to the teacher:
‘Rain. No game.' He did not get the

"What is the matter with your

"Well, I’ll tell you,” said Sterling.
"I was shaved Tuesday afternoon by
a barber who had bet $5 on the Giants.
The bootblack was the courier who re

Mayor Haussling alighted from a car
at the "Four Corners” recently and
started south on Broad street to City
Hall. A pedestrian going in the same
direction counted ten stops the city’s
chief executive had to make to talk
with well-known business men, who
appeared to have a very Important
message for his honor In each instance.
Invariably the messuge was:
“Good morning. Mayor. Do you think
the Giants will win today?”
