Philanthropy of this character, for it is philanthropy and nothing else, should be cheerfully undertaken by ! tho State. For a time it; might in crease the burden of the community; but It would be certain In the long run to rave In other directions and reinforce the educational policy of the State in the matter of teaching pris oners how to labor at productive em ployment. It is like other prison re forms which 'have in every Instance where successful proved to be money saving devices. The passing day con tinues to bring Its surprises. Ah Arkansas minister announces that he has seen the devil in that State. Very; likely, though his absence from other States hasn't been noticed. THE PASSING DAY. Professor Sumner is unquestion ably right in his contention that should the enthusiastic reformers of society have their way all at once they would build neither wisely nor well. It takes time to reconstruct so ciety, and society with an innate com tfion sense resists changes In the more or less established order of things which threaten revolution and the un certain consequences of revolution. fSut If society cannot be reconstruct ed over night, or as a result of an election turning upon the popular con ception of things, it can and Is being slowly awakened to a newer and broader understanding of co-operative responsibility. ; " The cold philosophy of the survival 61 the fittest, while it will continue to run Its course with human nature, is (nevertheless meeting from time to tltha assaults which weaken its integ rity. It is being more and more real ized that the weaknesses of human nature must be taken into account in a more or less paternal spirit; that men must not be permitted to do al together as they will with their own If as a consequence the penalties are to be heaped upon the Innocent. We are certainly not wise enough to an swer the question which is put in the marching of hundreds of unemployed toi the city hall of Boston, where the mayor was yesterday asked to give them employment, and to the State house, where the same demand was made of the governor, but It Is man- 1ftttl. a rtilAetijSm Ti-Vi loVi will e&al, art answer in some form or other. Let a large number of law-abiding and self-respecting men who are willing to. work, but who are deprived of the bpportunity through no fault of their rtwn, get the notion Into their heads that tho State owes them the chance to work when they suffer from en forced idleness, and they will some how or other put the waves of re form in nWlon and drive them to re mote, quarters. Th,elr act may not and probably will not compel the State to take such a burden upon its shoul ders, and there Is no likelihood that any practical good would result if it did. but it will direct attention to abuses which the government, sanc tions as a result of which violation Interruptions in the ebb and flow of life occur. If for one thing the de mand of the unemployed for work Should direct attention to the outrage ef special privilege and the exploita tion of the many for the unjust benefit df the few the march to the seats of government will not have been under taken In vain. From this point of view the manifestation of the unemployed of Boston Is not without its suggest tlve. "value. " Another phase of the same problem Is touched upon by the Superintend ent of Prisons 1n the State of New York, Cornelius V. Collins. He has be come more and more Impressed with the awful wake of destitution which Is left by- the departure of men to houses of detention. "Through per sonal Interviews with the prisoners and by their correspondence, which passes through the hands of the cen sor, the attention of prison officials is frequently brought to the destitute condition of the family of some pris oner whose imprisonment has depriv ed them of their sole support and Jeft them dependent on their own inade quate resources for the bare necessi ties of life." It Is the' purpose of the probation law to hold the offender in Check while compelling him to support his family. It Is only when the of fender refuses to accept the guardian ship of the law and persists in his evil conduct that he is sent to prison. This Is the man whom Superintendent Collins would make a source of sup port to his family though still a pris oner. Aireadj New York permits its working prisoners to send a small per centage of their earnings to their fam ilies, but it la Mi. Colli! V belief that If the percentage should ba increased a treat good will be dona. It would seem as if he was right, B!n;fc Jt his been clC2ri established that piam In carceration dots only half the t.-iii.

No wonder those who have to live and move in it feel heavy-laden. MORE THOROl'GH WORK NEEDED. The Aldrich emergency currency bill may have many friends In Wash ington, but It doesn't seem to have many anywhere else. Chicago bankers have protested to Senator Hopkins that the proposed measure will not meet the conditions beyond the Alle- ghenles. New York bankers have de clared that the bill is inadequate, and that it, in some directions, aggravates existing evils. Boston banking men haye criticised the measure as unsatisfactory- And so forth and so on. It is at least encouraging to find such a gen eral realization of the fact that some thing more than "emergency legisla tion" is needed. Emergency legislation doesn't seem likely to be needed for awhile and there is not likely to be a better time for constructing a law that will be more adequate and com prehensive than any and all of the measures that have so far been pro posed. Why not, then, tackle the finan cial question man-fashion and see ' If the good and the right thing for all concerned can't be done? ONCE MORfel, I OHIO : There may be such a thing as Just taxation. Most of those who are taxed think there isn't and, truth to tell, they are able to bring some pretty fair and cogent argument In support of their notion. State Senator Howe of Ohio is making an Interesting, If not Important, contribution to the ev erlasting tax discussion. He has Intro duced a bill In the Ohio legislature which proposes to ascertain the mar ket value of franchise, corporations, take from that amount the value that is now paying taxes, and Yin the re mainder levy a tax of f on 1,000. Me contends mat tnis is moderate, as the average tax on property is now- over $23 on 11,000. As Senator Howe puts It, Ohio corporations "are as sessed on a. scrap-iron basis, that of the rail, the ties, the pole, which bears about as much relation to the real value as the Individual bolts, nuts and plates bear to the actual locomo tive." He says: "The question of taxa tion seems intricate to most people, but anyone can appreciate this fact: everyone of the adult males of Ohio must give an equivalent to six days' work at $2 a day, to make up the tax which the big corporations evade." A concrete Illustration is cited in the fact that the horses are taxed for more than twice as much, as the .express, telegraph and telephone Companies, while the dogs are taxed for many times as much as the sleeping car and fast freight companies How far Senator Howe will get In this move remains to be sen. If he gets far the corporations of Ohio will have about as much cause for com plaint as the horses, the dogs, and some of the property-owners. QUESTIONABLE JIDGMENT. If we understood Secretary of War Taft correctly in his discussion oi the use of the injunction he declined to favor its abandonment altogether, as some political leaders advocate, but he expressed his sympathy with the suggestion that it be enforced with an equal understanding of the rights of both parties. The right' to pray out an injunction In his judgment, pre conceives a hearing of both sides be fore it is enforced. Neither party to a controversy as a result of which either asks for the power of injunc tion should for the space of a single day be given an undue advantage over the other. That is our understanding of Mr. Taft's attitude and we find our selves in full sympathy with it A new interest in the process of government by Injunction, as Mr. Bryan calls it, Is provoked by the ac tion of a New Jersey Chancellor who hps granted an injunction which is so sweeping In its provisions that one cannot help bi-t inwardly protest. We are m-t familiar with the particular labor controversy whjch has led the employers to ask for the protection of the courts, but it is Inconceivable that it differs so miich from other strikes that extraordinary power is necessary to guard the public welfare. It is nore likely that the legal advisors of the contesting firm or factory are re sponsible frr the extravagant rights asked for. They appear to have put Into their prayer every possible and conceivable effort of which men are capable and have undertaken by an ticipation to come Into control of a perplexed situation without regird t- the. rights and. porslble. Justice of their opposing cause. The injunction com prehends even the conduct of severil persons who are not members if the striking inlons and of placei of pop ular gathering which are entirely rlis msoctntcd with t9 rsu.-e of .-rguilzed labor.

We do not believe that tho grant of such n Injunction even tt'in.i lly Is in the interest of tlm public peace. Man Is not auvays lhe sweetest found or. earth, but whole, lacks cohesion. "There is no preparation made for war during the prevalence of peace," says the dough ty Colonel, and "no organtaation of the units into armies with their re quisite staffs has been drawn up and no provision is made for supply. A critical view of the army of the Unit ed States, notwithstanding . good equipment, does not make the outlook hopeful in case of hostilities with a great military power," and he dis misses the National Guard as of no account. Sadly interesting If true. It can be admitted, we suppose, that the United States army is not like the German army, but it might surprise even the scientific military Germans if a test should come. However, faithful are the wounds of a friend. ' ' Judging from New York's tax list, there aren't many rich - people left there. CHEAP; EFFECTIVE, PALATABLE.

The blgnesB of the debt of Greater New York has lately had some of the attention due it, and so has the big ness of the taxes. Now attention is drawn to the fact that an increase of no less than $472,000,000 in the as sessed valuation of real estate in New York city shows a marvelous devel opment in real property, not only In the central section of the metropolis but in the outlylngboroughs as well. In Manhattan the Increase Is given as $lf9,000,000, In Brooklyn $114,000,000 and the remainder In the three other boroughs. With a debt about as big as the national debt perhaps New York real ly ought to have as much to base it on as the United States has to base ids debt on. But It hasn't yet. What it Is going to have remains to be seen. Evidently something very big unless It Is destroyed by an earthquake this year, according to the prediction that has been made. The government of Roumania is planning drastic measures to check drunkenness. The new bill regulating drink in that country makes the sale of brandy and whisky a State monop oly and gives municipalities control of saloons. Bar-kefpers become munici pal employes. Bars are limited as to number uid may not remain open on Sundays or satits' days-, or after 8 o'clock at night. Intoxication is pun ished by fine for the first offense and by a prison term for the second. Hab itual drunkards are registered and barkeepers selling tliem liquor are sub ject to heavy fines. animal Jo be A Norwegian woman physician. Dr. Julia Bang-KlinCk, will be one of the first persons to spend a winter at -Ad vent Bay, Spitzbergen. No one has been brave enough to face a w'oter in this place until the present year, when two mining companies decided to keep at work on tha coil mines. They adver tised for two doctors, and Dr. Bane Kltnok and her husband, also a physi cian, responded rurt were accepted. The mining colony will consist of about a, hundred persons, including seven wom en. This woman doctor is well known In America, havi.g worked for some years in Wisconsin end Illinois. there Is nevertheless to be fiund In the average brother a keen sense of justice when a brutal thing I? done. He will come to the defense of one he dislikes rather than rerinit Un kind of Injustice which appears to his tftlnd to outrage fair play.

A temporary Injunction granted in the absence of a hearing or in the presence -t but one -f the parties and made to give one side an undue advantage for a consldercble length of time over the other does not. hitch well with American tradi tions and the American sense of fair play.

It has been believed by many Eng lishmen In India, and perhaps by some United States men In our own tropical regions, that large amounts of strong drink were necessary to "ward off" various tropical diseases which He in wait for the man who moves into theif neighborhood from a more temperate zone. But one of the consuls of the United States, who are now studying everything tinder' the sun and telling the State depart ment about It, has been studying life In Calcutta especially with the Idea of finding out how much rum Is need ed to pull a white man through. He says: After nearly two ycSfrs' ppfdefice here my observations lead me to say that drinkers of spirits, wines and malt liquors are the most susceptible to disease, especially fevers, either on the plains or In the mountains, of hny class of the Inhabitants. Proper re gard for dress, to. guard against, sud den weather changes, moderation In eating, especially meats, using only fil tered and boiled water, total absten tion from alcoholic, vinous and malt liquors, and plenty of sleep, will al most Invariably Insure, to the average healthy person, good and uniform health, as far as fevers are concern ed, and by adding vaccination and In oculation will go a long way toward werdlng off contagious diseases. So says Consul General William H, Michael, and prohibitionists end many other sensible people will agree with hlvn. The simple and careful life Is good for those who live in. the tropics or anywhere else. The forest service has Issued a state rmut regarding the experiments look ing to the lnTeased durability of woods from preservative treatment, which it has bee.i conducting for some time. Such treatment is recommended especially for fence posts, as by the use of cresote on cheap woods it Is as serted that they can be made to last twenty years, outlasting cedar and oak untreated. U the East creosote Is about ten cents a gallon, and it costs about four cents to treat a post. The most important feature of the plan, from the standpoint of the forest ser vice, Is that it fits other woods to take the pace of cedar und oak, which are becoming scarce.
