AW confess to no opinion upon that suggestion worth the having, but that It is up held by men whose reputation for in telligence has never been successfully assailed is reason enough to postpone consideration of the whole question until men can bring to the study of it quiet minds and rested bodies. There is no danger threatening the country to-day which Justifies undi gested legislation upon the currency question. There l. a danger threaten ing the country es the result of proh able hasty legislation on that subject, proposed too by the representative of the very Interests which show a con cern in controlling Indirectly the assets of the national treasury. If President Roosevelt would bear down on this danger he would unearth a whole tronp of "undesirable citizens." like this. However, the man who was dis charged by the court thinks .well of our system. Thursday, January 30, 1008. lflteet manifestations is the v V e Society, whose object is to make things pleasant for foreign visitors to Japan. The Welcome Society has honorary members life-members. ordinary members, and foreign tourist mem bers One becomes a foreign-tourist member by being born abroad, landing in Japan, alone or with one's family, and paying a fee of three yen, or a dollar and a half Diirine their sojourn in Janan. foreign members are entitled snags havt ben foun,i to visit various nuhlic institutions with comes "om Washington that It has which the sccietv has special agree- bcome apparent that the only way ment.

The big drainage schemes which are before congress have struck several' snags, but It is now thought' that a way to get them over or around the The news society, and In case they revisit Japan, private and State lands conveyed to The days are longer now, especially for those who are out of work.

Wher .BUch. "greemnt has not been It looks as if this Welcome Society keP- il ,s Purposed to have the lands in Japan. In other countries much fre of stock 1n companies, lae ships of wlaich fly foreign flags. Surely, some thing would be afforded to appease the distress if one could see the country's flag in every part of the world; even though Inquiry might, reveal that the hip under the flag had been built in a foreign shipyard. Of course, if the, ship and the flag might unitedly ex press tha rehabilitation of the Ameri can marine and the rehabilitation of American ihipbuiiding, such a consum mation would devoutly be applauded. But why refuse to accept that part which may easily be acquired a very considerable part, both in respect of material concerns and of sentiment? It might even be hoped that, when the flag comeg to fly over numerous fleets the operations of which also return profits to American pocketbooks. Amer ican shipbuilders would be bidding for me construction. It they did not. the rehabilitaticn up to that point would yet be uplifting to American pride. An American, some of whose household goods or the clothes he wears may be of foreign make or pattern, Is not less prouo ot his couptry on that account nor would he submit to. be charged with lack of patriotism on the ground that he did not confrie his purchases to American products, his weaning ap parel to homespun. THE LEADERSHIP OF ALDRICH. It is becoming mort uu more ob vious that the leadership of Senator Aldrich of Rhode Island in the curren cy reform movement is full of peril for the business intfrests of the coun try and. for the welfare of the deposi tors in the institutions of savings. He either is oblivious of the manner in which the currency problem should be met, or he is concerned only with in creasing the amount of circulation afloat for the dealers in money to buy and sell. He discloses neither the gen ius of . an expert nor th heart of a humanitarian. His career should be cut short and the votes of the delega tion in congress from Connecticut should not be lacking to accomplish that result. As we have said once be fore, the country might just as well leave the arrangement of the tariff schedules to the steel producers of Pittsburg as to leave to Senator Al drich and his advisers the determina tion of the currency laws. We wish again to congratulate Rep resentative Hill of the Fourth Con gressional district of Connecticut up on the admirable work he is doing In educating the business men of the State to a realization of what the Al drlches are up to and to encourage him in the self-imposed task. If Wash ington does not see him again until the discussion takes place on the floor of the house he cannot employ his time to better advantage than in ex plaining to his fellow citizens the cats which swarm in these bags of arti ficial meal. The currency problem, which it is given to few to understand, juieht not ,to be 'taken as sound gospel because it is shaped In a committee room by partisan gatherings and re ported to congress according to trad!- ' tlonal conventions. The currency prob lem ought not to be brought under consideration upon the eve of a tia tlonal 'election- The news from Wash ington makes it clearer every day that it is the political advantage to be gain ed that is inspiring both of the politi cal parties to give the country some thing in the way of an alleged lm prbvement in its financial habits. The .Republicans, under the lead of Senator Aldri;h, keep up their secret and mys terious study of the needs only to dis close the Democrats under the lead of Senator Bailey plotting In secret to outwit them. Both, consciously or un consciously as the case may be, are deceiving themselves as to the causes of the recent panic and are seeking in t blind and perfectly ineffectual if not dangerous way to anticipate a like tumult We repeat that they ought not to bo permitted to play thus reckless ly with the power to legislate, and the State of Connecticut, known for its conservative and prudent conduct of Its affairs as they relate to the public welfare, should through its congres sional delegation be prompt to inform the currency tinkerers that they must tinker without its aid and comfort. Two things are apparent to anyone who takes the trouble to consider the situation at Wash1ngtn as It relates to the currency question. In the first place congress Itself and the admlnis , tration are at sea as to Just what leg islation Is needed and is best under the circumstances. In the second place practically all of the bills or cure-alls which have been Introduced have for their purpose the inflation of the mon ey market. We are not prepared to say that it is exactly greenbackism or free sllverism, but there is no reason to Question the fact that tt belongs to the same family of legislative experi ment Doubtless the Aldrich plan come nearer the desires of the money Changers than any of the other pro posed measures, but no one pian can be said to scientifically meet the con ditions as they have been shown to be 'easy of creation when for a hundred reasons public confidence is broken. There is a need for an improved cur rency system, but so long as men com petent to discuss it cannot agree among themselves on a solution, upon what theory, pray, is a certain solution to be accepted on the fly? Especially Important Is it that fly-by-night legis lation should not be undertaken when ; there is the slightest reason to believe, as In this Instance, that the two po litical parties are hurdling to prove their superior agility. There are many able men and bankers, like Congress man Hill, who believe that the true solution is to be sought through a na tional bank of Issue, with branches In ONE OF THE NOTIONS. It is the notion of the Rev. Sam uel J. Barrows of Boston that the standard of right living has been rais ed as society has advanced, and that crimes increase because of the raising of that Ftandard. Interesting, if true, and somewhat so u not true. Hrother Barrows no tion seems to have its difficulties. If as we continue to grow better and more sensitive crimes continue to in crease, how is there ever going to be a Heaven on earth, or even a Heaven in Heaven? His notion isn't a very comforting one, unless he has another notion that the time Is coming when we shall be so good and so sensitive that crimes will begin to decrease and then go on decreasing yfntil nil Is right and good. We hope he has that notion and that it will Jurn out to be a right notion to have. quented by foreigners with money to spend there are Welcome Societies, but their welcome isn't given as pleas antly as Is that of the Japanese so ciety. And it also costs more. As most of the F.:a;e of Kentucky has gone "dry" It is tot surprising to read that a vein of whit coal has been discovered there.1 OKLAHOMA ASPIRATION. ment. Private owners may be induced to convey their swamp lands to the government with, the understanding that, when drained, not to exceed 160 acres per Individual shall be returned, all in excess of that quantity to be sold' and the proceeds, less the cost of re clamation, returned to the former owner. It is not Intended that the gov ernment shall exact any profit for Its work. This is a curious paternal scheme. Perhaps by and by the government will do the coal mining and other mln ing at cost for the owners - of the Oklahoma is newand aspiring, but mines. she Isn't new and aspiring enough to be devoid of race prejudice. So a FENCING THE CAMPUS. The class of 1902 Is to be congrat ulated. It has announced that at the time of Its return next June for Its sexennial celebration It will have the Vale campus surrounded by a fence or at least that part of It surrounded where there are no gates that can be shut, so that the curious crowds that always gather at the place at Commencement time can be kept out. Only Yale men and their friends will be admitted. The campus policemen will stand at the entrances and e.e to it that this rule Is enforced. This will not only keep the ruffians and the street-walkers off the campus but will give the returning graduates the cam pus to themselves for at least an even ing or two. They believe the little time they are back Is all too short to allow any others, who can be on the campus much oftener, to be allowed to share it with them. They -are excusahly self ish. The scheme seems to fall In line with the recent edict of the bursar's office, which does not permit pedlars and the like on the campus as freely as heretofore. The Yale campus Is es sentially for Yale men and their friends and when outsiders interfere with their fullest enjoyment et Yale's sacred hearth-stone, then others should be kept out. The hope may be expressed that the time will not be far-distant when there will bo gates all about the campus which can he shut, thus obviating the building of such a fence every year.

Vnle nnd Tnft. (Hartford Tourant.) The action of the. Yale authorities In refusing the great dlnlng-hall for a political dinner has been telegraphed ail over the country, and puper after paper reports that Yale has turned Taft, down. This may do something toward dis posing of the foolish assumption that Taft Is tha "Yale candidate." It will do perhaps even more in demonstrat ing that Yale is not in politics. It the authorities had permitted the use of the hall for a meeting at which Taft was to be the central figure, then they must do the same for Bryan when he comes around. Tf they open up for Presidential candidates, they must be equally receptive for those running for State offices. If Republi cans and Democrats can get the hall, why should socialists- be denied ' th courtesy? ,. r ..... , . Either Yale is in politics aa an in stitution or else she is not. It ap pears that she Is nut. It :would be hard to think out'a less friendly thing that th Yale managers might do to Taft than to give his meeting In the big hall and' then deny It. to others active in politics.

The once excellent team work of the life-savers, so Important where combined physical effort Is required, has consequently deteriorated, and the former standard cannot tie regained in the present circumstances. Of late it has been found practically impossible to secure material of any kind for re cruiting the crews at many of the sta tions. In fact, nearly all of the tiii teen districts of the service are seri ously crippled in this respect and the eligible lists from which the crews must be selected are wholly Insuffi cient to fill the vacancies occurring That the service has not yet been chargeable with serious loss of life in consequence of this state of affairs is due to fortunate chance, and also to the fact that the introduction of re cent great improvements in life pav ing appliances has afforded the means to accomplish rescur-s which formerly would have been impossible.

The di rect Inhibition is the tremendous cost of war. and the consequent confusion into which the war bill throws the fin ancial arrangements of even th richest nations of modem times Great Britain, In even her small war with the Boers, was obliged t strain her credit srmie whst. and had the humiliation of seeing her consols go bel"w par. This was almnst as unflattering to England as the loss of a battle bv the blundering Buller.
