In view of the discussion la progress over Prof. Foster's book on "The Function of Religion In Man's Strug gle for Existence" The Dee reprints on this page the author's preface, which explains In his own words how he came to write the book and what its purpose Is. Most of those who have been participating in the discussion and Joining in denunciation of Prof. Foster have plainly never seen his book, and as a consequence most of the criticism has flown wide of the mark. "The Function of Religion" Is, largely, a review and repetition of the conclusions reached by the most eru dite students of the Bible and of com parative religions. Not only this, but the present book merely restates in a great part what the same author had In the futuro and as a man with a personal knowledge of such things Mr. Balllnger's trip through the west should prove valuable to him. Heated Season in Cities. The miseries of the heated term in a great city can never be appreciated by those who have never experienced It. The telegraph tells of deaths from heat, people sleeping on sidewalks and In the parks, but this conveys only a fractional Idea of the misery in con gested sections of great cities. There waa to have all sections represented and therefore interested directly in the official life at Washington.

When in his preface Prof. Foster says that "the book has been dashed off at white heat In thirty days," he evidently by working the nonpartisan racket, assuming that the so-called nonpar tisan judiciary law will govern the coming election Irrespective of its con stitutionality, which is questioned by all the best lawyers.

Talk of moving them to the country is idle, for in the big city is the only work they know how to do and efforts to induce them to move have always been futile. The only thing that can be done is to make their lot more tolerable, and In this respect the United States is far behind Europe. More stringent tene ment laws have abolished the worst death traps in which the poor form erly lived, but the best of our tene ments are still deficient in the light and air essential for physical welfare.

General Humidity is in temporary command of the Department of the Missouri. There are 10,000 automobiles In Iowa and still some people are able to dodge the machines. An Investigation inquiry is in order the wrath that haa now culminated. Perhaps the explanation may be found in the drubbing which Prof. Foster gives to some of his pulpit col leagues in his excoriation of the ten dencies of the modern church. "I am now trying," he says, "to get the church to see that it has been on the wrong track, with its instinct of solf- preservatlon, with its dogging the foot steps of science, blocking its every ad vance; with its love of dogmas rather than search for truth; with its pride rather than service; with its clerical Ism rather than humanism; with its facing backward instead of forward." He ridicules the modern church in its claim to be a service of God and con tinues: Shall we then rescue a place for the church in modem life by assigning her practical tasks, the service of man? But what tasks? Politics, education, morals, charity, medicine? The church is now dabbling In all of these, especially In poll tics, charity and medicine. That It does ao la proof that It la bewildered, desperate, confuted as to what Its true function Is. Prof. Foster declares that often- entailed by one of these hot waves can be mitigated in many ways by systematic and co-operative effort. . fiTTisa nr Tna Tmna'a rt arriir tmtr aw a. i i . . . . . for these three lodges directly inter- j .i cotua. i enouid une to go to meet these i j I- yeisuuB, wnn ineir aemanu mat tne 811UA- ested'to sit in the case, and impossible into wnoM hands could I wish thi nt- 4i for the other three Judges to render a tie volume to fall?

In the first place, the county judge holds the law unconstitutional and With equal cogency It might be urged that no law affecting the judges of the court could ever bo subjected to Judicial test because the Judges passing on it might have a personal in- void because it compels him to use his terest. In the recent suit instituted to determine the competitive claims to seats on the bench by appointees of Governor Sheldon and Governor Shal lenberger, turning on the question when a constitutional amendment went into effect, every Judge was di rectly interested because the same de cision had to determine when the in crease in his salary should begin. Yet that did not prevent the judges from own money to purchase the judicial regalia, and further because it violates the constitutional provision against cruel and unusual punishment. It is hot where the judge resides and he in sists that if the legislators impeach him and sit in judgment on him they shall comply with the law and don the cap and gown, confident this or deal will make tfls case.

The interest of the Taft administra tion in reclamation work Is manifest by the tour of Secretary of the Interior nearer the truth that the cry of yellow Balllnger, who Is spending the summer peril was raised for political home con ln inspecting irrigation projects al- sumption. The fact is that mere An International system of marine weather signals has been agreed upon, but at last reports the code had not been received by the mariners at Manawa and Cut-Off.

Italy has Just authorised the build lng of two dreadnaughta, and the premier Is out with an interview an nouncing that the alms of the govern ment are peaceful. It's a funny game. J. Ogdea Armour, just back from Cprope, says the trade outlook was never better and predicts at least five years of great prosperity. There does not appear to be any discord In tte obomav ready under way or projected. Mr. Balllnger comes from Washington state, which is largely interested in such enterprises, and his personal friendliness is a known quantity. Each section, however, presents different conditions and the man who is to deal with them successfully should know them personally. There are both prac tical and visionary irrigation schemes being urged upon the government and it is essential ln the early stages of the reclamation work by the govern ment that no serious mistake be made, otherwise it will be difficult If not Impossible to secure from congress the appropriations necessary to go on. One useless or unprofitable ditch now could do more harm to the irrigation cause than all the talk of Its op ponents. Not only Is It essential the secretary should know at first hand of work being done, but that he should see for himself opportunities for the future, that our natural resources may not fall Into the hands of speculators and land grabbers. A little care ln the present wiU be worth many millions numbers have never dominated the world, and if China ever should obtain pre-eminence it will be when it has reached the top level in social, political and industrial life. To reach this point would at best take centuries. ' New Civil Service Rule. The new civil service rule embodied In the census bill by the senate and concurred In by the house promises to revolutionize things In a manner not pleasing to residents of Washing ton. It prescribes actual residence in the state to which an employe is credited to comply with the civil serv ice law regarding apportionment. In the past this law has been, ln large measure, a dead letter, Washington people clalmlug residence ln states which they have not visited ln years and ln many inbtanceb by those born In Washington after their parents re moved there from the states to which they are charged.
