LIFESAVING AND KILLING
New York Tribune: Current figures
exemplify the paradox that the most
precious thing is the cheapest—in dol
lars and cents—and the most uselefs
thing is the dearest.
It will not be questioned that the
most profitable achievement is the sav
ing.of human life. It seems to be also
thilleast expensive. Dowtrat Panama
for example, Col. Gorgaa and his aids
have effected a wonderful saving of
human life by transforming what was
one of the highest death rates in the
world to.one of the lowest. The actual
cost of this work is accurately figured
out to be only $2 43 for each life saved.
On the other hand, in modern war
fare it costs an average of about $15,
000 to kill each man. In the Boer war
it cost nearly $40,000, and in the pres
ent Bolkan war, which has been waged
very economically, it ha cost probably
more than $10,000. Seeing that there
is nothing more wasteful thar. the de
struction of human lives, it would bi_ a
costly performance for the world if ii
were done without expense. At $15,
000 a head it is monstrously profligate.
Suppose that what is spent for ac
were spent for saving them: What
might not be accomplished? Actuaries
estimate that $1,500,000,c^O is a con
servative estimate of the economic
value of lives which are lost needlessly
each year'in the United States alone.
To turn a part of war fund to the
saVing of 'hose lives a $2 43 apiece
might be iness.

FOURTH CLASS POSTMASTERS
The speculation in reference to the
civil service status of the fourth

seems to have beeh brought down to
an .understandable basis by a state

says that examinations will be held
throughout the country that will fur

to use the weight of my influence to

anniversary is to be celebrated next

of peace. The men of both'fUdee will
meet as brothers, will claBp hands
and, with all enmity and hatted.

this in mind, the United States gov

parations for the great celebration,
while all the states in the union are
