Although New Jersey is known mainly as the State which most easi ly and profitably incorporates the trust, there are other projects that indicate that the State Is progressive and prepared to meet the demands of modern lite. The city of Newark is to have an athletic field for the pub lic schools. Eight acres of ground are to be devoted to this purpose. There will be a football field, two baseball diamonds, and a running track; three tennis courts and two basketball courts will be provided; jumping pits and sprinting tracks are included, with pole vaults and chinning bars. There is too a grandstand and bleachers, with dressing rooms and baths. The Btadium is to be a part of the public school system. It Is evident that the upper section of New Jersey is to build stalwart men and women to 'grapple with the strenuous problems of the future. What takes place in Newark has significance for the whole State, for it is the metropolis. The greater part of the wealth and population of the State are centered there. ' The effort that Is being made for the development of a system of play grounds In the larger cities of the country, or in providing the more am bitious athletic field as contemplated by Newark, has doubtless grown out of the attention that has been given by educators for years to the study of child-nature and the needw of chil dren. It was a happy thought of SOme- of childhood. It seemed that the hu man mind had applied Itself to the careful and zealous study of every other object under the sun except the child. But the reaction came some time ago and now the idea Is catch ing that too much cannot be done to secure a healthful, robust, Industrious, rlghteoua and happy order of chlld ' hpod. With the general spread of the Ideas of kindergarten methods of In struction and the emphasis op play as well as on study and work has come what may be railed a civic love for children and a desire to provide for them as thoroughly as possible a full rounded life. When one thinks of the many Insti tutions o? various kinds that give evi dence of this general effort to care properly for the children he Is Im pressed with the great interest thst Is being taken In the needs of childhood. In our universities are departments for the itudy of the child physiologic ally and psychologically. In Sunday school work an effort Is made to train teachers In the principles of child cul ture in ethical and. religious lines. In thH city the recent formation of a un ion of Sunday schools is an undertak ing that lias an excellent work tinder way. Numerous movements, as Junior republics, clubs of the Bancroft Foote club pattern, are designed to contrib ute their part to the building of man hood and womanhood. On the puni tive side are the Juvenile courts and special Institutions and methods to restrain the evil and to bring out the good. The whole purpose is to develop a generation that will be bettor equip ped than the present to meet the re sponsibilities of the larger life thst Is sure to come. To this end the initia tive, spontaneity and enthusiasm of youth must be conserved and guided. Consequently the movement against child labor points out that It will mean math that is good for society to abolish ruch labor and to lengthen the playtime of children. Cities that give attention to the right training of- their children will be the richer for It. It is a part of the whole process of civic betterment. Another movement just Inaugurated that brings Newark in line with New Haven is one similar to that of the civic societies here, though the move ment there has taken somewhat differ ent shape. Two-score clergymen have got together for the purpose of begin ning an interdenominational work in the interest of civic righteousness. They are practical preachers. The Newark Evening News says of them: "These men are broad-gauged and deep drafted, earnest to make their influ ence measure up to the sacred ness of their calling, ambitious to become true prophets of righteousness, eager to have united aclion by the whole church supplant the sporadic efforts of individual pastors and denomina tl'jns." But ilmilar activities are going on I in other cities. In Grand Rapids, Michigan, a single minister has sue- i ceeded in enlisting the co-operation of j other clergymen in establishing a class j for the study of the questions and i problems that pertain to the city's life and the method of working out prac tical righteousness. This class, it is said, is large and meets every Sunday j noon. Papers are read on assigned topics and vigorous discussion fol lows. These efforts are so many man ifestations of the same general spirit that is taking possession of observing and thinking men in different places. The great problem is the city problem, where life is throbbing at its highest tension. Whether the efforts for bet terment are applied o the care of the children, or to the infiu'.on of righteous purpose and action in in dustry, politics, and other ranges of life, there is one characteristic com mon to all the purpose is that of a present salvation and the creation of an atmosphere more wholesome in every way for future generations. Prof. E. A. Ross says in his new book, "Sin and Society": "Our social organization has developed to a stage where the old righteousness is not enough. We need an annual supple ment to the Decalogue. The growth of credit institutions, the spread of fidu ciary relations, the enmeshing of in dustry in law, the interlacing of gov ernment in business, the multiplica tion cf boards and Inspectors ben eficent as they all are, they invite to sin." The more numerous the vari ous social institutions become, made necessary In order to transact the af fairs of life, ard the more closely knit they are, the more likely .that new kinds of temptation will appear, call ing for a newer righteousness, a new type of public official, and a closet scrutiny on the part of those having at heart the ethical welfare of a community. The Oklahoma man who was de feated in his campaign for a seat in the legislature because he wore a stand-up linen collar Is in a way t 'earn what real political principles aie. NOT TIIR CHIEF VILLAIN. Some of the society women of Chi cago have formed a club and agreed to wear no feathers but those of a crow in their hat1?. It Is to be hoped that this agree ment doesn't indicate the general In telligence of the society women of Chicago. It seems to Indicate that they look upon the crow as the chief vil lain in the bird world. He Is not that, as everybody who is acquainted with birds knows. He does trouble some farmers by pulling up some corn, but he also helps many farmers by eating large quantities of predatory bugs, lie Is a cheerful and a knowing bird, minds his own business much better than some of the birds, and has great fun In foiling those who go forth to shoot him. He is useful, handsome and characterful. Why, then, should he be picked out by Chicago women as the one bird whose feathers they will wear? The answer must, be, because they don't know the crow. The real villain among birds seems to be the English sparrow. We say seems, be cause a pretty good argument can be made even for him. It would have been kinder in the Chicago society women to resolve not to wear any bird feathers. other method of travel, except street cars. The special advantage offered by these cars is in the easy manner with which one can pass out as well as in without the crowding that occurs when some persist in coming in while others are endeavoring to pass out. In a few cities some objection has been raised to requiring a purchase of tickets before entering the car. On taking a steamboat, or entering a the atre, a steam train or any other meth od, no objection is raised to the use of a ticket. It is ail a matter of cus tom or training. If there should come about a general use of tickets bought in -advance for street cars, the public will easily adjust itself to the situation. The adjustment of street cars to the demands of traffic, in new ideas of construction and methods for relieving congestion, Is fast proceeding. Every where trolley roads are crossing and crisscrossing and bringing separated lo calities together and bringing along a larger fellowship. A sacred Chinese turtle with an im perial tag hitched 'to it has been caught in San Francisco bay. Typical of the change in China? THE TVRAWV OF TREATING. The prohibition movement is vigor ously moving, and now there is talk of an anti-treatlng movement. Of course if prohibition were completely effective there would be no need of an anti-treating movement, but until ev erybody Is "submerged" by the prohi bition wave what has been called "the tyranny of treating" is a good thing to talk about. This tyranny Is prevalent and forceful. It Is regarded as almost equal to an insult to walk into a familiar bar at which acquaintances are. standing and buy a "lonesome" drink, and It Is almost as bad to re fuse an invitation, thereby compelling a friend to drink alone. In a party of men, if one treats, all must treat "to hold up their end." and the upshot of it Is that each member of tne party imbibes at !ea---t live times as much as he intended to. There can be no doubt that a gen eral protest against the tyranny of treating would be a good and bene ficial movement. The Bible says, put not the cup to thy brother's lips. sired, the peace of the world would be very largely assured. Secretary Taft, who ought to know, declared in a speech Monday that there will be no war with Japan. As far as the expressions of this country and Japan are known and as far as the internal conditions of both peoples can be judged, there is every reason to believe that the statement of Sec retary Taft is correct. Fir Charles Dilke of England, who is a careful ob server of international affairs, declares that the peace of the world this year will be undisturbed in the Pacific. Sir C.harles Dilke points out that those na tions most able financially to conduct a war have no desire and ; not the slightest reason for it. Japan has enough to keep her busy with her re construction policy. Economically she is poor. ' The observations of Sir Charles Dilke will go far toward allaying the gossip of Europe regarding possible conflict in the Pacific. For some time the voyage of the American 'fleet has been a bit of sensation In Europe which some have seemed to enjoy. The clear declaration by a few level-head ed men like Sir Charles Dilke will help In turning the attention of our think ing Into some worthy channels. By all means let the mind dwell on pence, looking for a year of building In those things thai make for good-will nnd righteousners. SAVINGS AND DOINGS.

The people are not taking much In terest in the new Thaw trial. They are tired of the whole dirty business, and willing to believe that Thaw and all the others In the mess wore crazy enough. But there will soon begin a trial in which they ought to take some real interest. This is the trial of the fourteen men who wers picked cut a being criminally concerned in the frauds connected with the building and furnishing of the oapltol nt llar rlshurg, Pennsyhania. The trial will begin on the 27th of this month. Pro ceedings figninst the Indicted ones have so far bet n definite and vig-jrouq Th) governor, the invstigntinc; e m mittee and the prosecuting officers have done their work thoroughly. If th? men are not convicted 't will be because there isn't law enough or justice enough in rensylvania. That there are both should be tho earnest hope of good citizens ,n all parts of the country, who are as much con cerned as the citizens of Pennsyl vania in seiing tnis kind of high financiering properly punished. The banks in the big cities have got bpek to a cash basis, and some of the unemployed are hoping that tliey will ?on be able to resume ;ash payments. PAY A YOU ENTER. The pay-as-you-enter street cars nre not having an easy tim of it in evry city where they are used. In some cit ies, as Buffalo, they were a success from the "start. In one city a small iit was" precipitated, due to the delay in making change. Not every passenger will have a nickel to deposit as he en ters the car. At a time whn there is a rush one ran imagine the confusion and altercations that will take place, if only a few block the entrance to make change. In Buffalo the trouble is obvUtfd by having plares where rasscrKers ran obtain the required nickel or ticket? beforehand, as hi don on elevated nt,d subwat cars, or in the cae of evry SKXSR AND HONESTY IN KANSAS. Kansas has so sensibly corrected so many mistakes that It Is not at all sun prising to find her Supreme court de ciding that It has the power to correct its own mistakes, or, rather, the mis takes of one of Its recording officers, it appears that appeal was taken In a certain case from the finding of the State court to the Supremo court of the Vnlted States, the same being based largely upon the mlslake that the former body has now ruled may be corrected. The ml originally in volved an Issue which was subse quently withdrawn. The clerk, how ever, overlooked the withdrawal mo Hon nnd made the court's order ap ply to all Issues set forth In the original petition. The defendant sel'ed upon the error to appeal. Whereupon the Kansas court was applied to by the original plaintiff to trnlchten out the record. This was ordered, though against the protest of the original de fendant, who contended that the rec ord once made must be abided by. "Clerical mistakes," so the ruling runs, "In the record of a judgment rendered In nn original proceeding 1o this court may be corrected to the end that the record may speak the truth after the lapse of the term, after the proceedings in error to review Judg ment have been Instituted In the Su preme court of the I'nlfed States nnd notwithstanding a supersedeas bond has been filed. Such corrections mav be made on the motion of an Inter estcd patty or on the court's own mo tion wnen?ver tne mistakes are brought to its attention." This is sensible and honest, and we nope It is also unshakahly legal. Even Supreme courts are not infallible In all their operations, though they may be in their judgments. And surely the carelessness of a court clerk i houl ln'1 be allowed to figure as the majesty and the infallibility of justice.

What are the prospects for peace iluring i0S7 is it wholesome for many to let their minds dwell on the likelihod of war? It is often said that a man will find what he is looking for. If there Is truth in this statement, a man who is looking for a fight will find It and likely will get all that is due l.im. If th s frequently quoted ex pression is true in the individual range, why may not a large number of peopl,., who are ever looking about for signs of war, ever talking ah.uit it, and seemingly worried if it delays, be , The Hidden Secret mine in Australia yielded $2)0.000 of gold In a few days and was sold for $2,600,000.

The tariff will not down, and there are no reliable indications that it will even be reduced. But the tariff com mission Idea seems to be gaining ap proval. The argument is that such a mnniision, made up, as is proposed. cf men with expert knowledge nnd of practical experience, might serve a useful purpose by studying trade problems In a scientific spirit, nnd sub mitting the results of their study with dispassionate recommendations to Congress. Of course Congress then would have to accept or reject. But (he facts would be before the country from an Independent body of experts who presumably would not be affect ed by merely political or party exigen cies In reaching conclusions. This Is plausibly reasonable. There is a growing deslro that the tariff shall get some of the attention to which It has long been entitled. A commission might make a thorough and Intelligent study of It. Then, we suppose, "the Interests" and "the In- ant Industries" would have their little studies made. In the fullness of time something may be done about the tar iff. Until then nobody will he harmed much by "discussion." Telegraphic communication Is being rapidly opened alcng the Sudan part of the "Cape to Cairo" steam railroad route. Khartum has direct connection with Egypt and through her with all the rest of the world. The wires have been slrung from Khartum to Belgian Kongo and this place Is now in direct communication with Entebbe, on Lake Victoria, near the source of the Nile. There are now more than 4,000 miles of telegraph working wires in the Su dan and lust year more than 230,000 private telegrams were sent over them. Wilson Orewdson, chairman of the Council of the Japan Society, points out that the grave near Yokosuka, in Japan, of Will Adams, famous in his tory as the first Englishman to set foot 1n that country, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, has fallen into decay and neds considerable repair.

Canada Is not far from the United States, but It Is different In some mat ters. Awhile ago a car on a Canndinn line was loaded partly with dynamite, which exploded nnd killed two men, besides Injuring over a score. A crim inal Indictment against the company, In nddltlnn to the customary Individual damage suits, followed. The company pleaded, among other things, that the explosive had not been properly de ribod when shlppt l. cite plosion had been caused by the negli gence of its employes rather than by any direct omission of Its ow:i. The court refused to give the slightest weight to either of these plens. It held thnt railroads are accountable In the strictest sense for the manner in which they perform their services; that they must satisfy themselves of the safety of what they carry, and cm ploy men with sufficient skill to han dle their vatlous classes of freight: "It is the dear duty of the company," concluded the court, "to take all due care of thV lives and property of oth rs. no matter what it may cost " W ith regard to the relative guilt of the com pany and its employes, the court found, in the first place, that the for mer had by its own negligence sub jected Its employes' to unnecessary danger, and, secondly, as a matter of law, that, while negligent employes may be punished criminally, the com pany cannot In any circumstances es cape responsibility for its own omis sions and failures. The court added that for many of the "accidents" that occur on railroads "crimes" would be a far bettor word. The difference between this and some things tint happen in the United States is marked. Still, Canada is un doubtedly "slow" as toiiipared with the United States.
