The Retoar Tny with All its horror nearly starved in our streets. A like Bro Ghl on by the fact that the so Fate was that of English actors of less called conservatives refused to follow though Hist ions vastly a Turgot in his Wise. Fair and absolute the five per cent. Fiasco. It Wuh a foolish notion that american shipping could be substantially advanced by a rebate of 5 per cent on duties on goods brought in in american Bottoms. Five per cent does not mean five Points. On an average duty of 36 per cent on dutiable goods the rebate would amount Only to 1 3-3d per cent on the total. The Competition of american with foreign shipping is not close enough to make this advantage decisive if in fact it had been granted. The Only explanation of the Effort to give this advantage to american shipping is that it was meant As the thin entering wedge by which the general plan of indirect subsidies could b aided. Foolish As the notion was those who undertook to carry it out made a bad mess of it. Very properly they tried to make the provision consistent with existing treaties. Specifically la it Gay tried to say that Tho 5 per cent rebate should not be paid on goods brought in from countries entitled by treaty to equal treatment for their ships with i our own. The Law officers of thy Treasury Fini a at what really was i done was to Grant the rebate both for our own vessels and for those of coun hat rips entitled to such equal treatment. A a or there is some doubt As to the scope of t ids interpretation but it appears to p extend to All countries except Russia France and Brazil. British vessels carrying goods nol originating in British territories in Europe would not have the advantage of Tho rebate. In any Case it in estimated that the clause w Ould result in a loss of reve nue of from $10.000.000 to $20.000,000 a year. Only an insignificant share of this Large amount would be of advantage to american shipping. Senator Simmons has expressed the opinion that repeal is the Best Way out of the mortifying plight in which the Tariff Law places the government. Or. Underwood does not share that View. We have great respect for or. Underwood a judgment but in this matter we fear his a a satisfaction with the Law As it is a is not Well founded. At Best the Effort to carry out the Law must Lead to a great Deal of useless and annoying friction with countries affected. If the View taken by the Treasury should be rejected by the renown per Lor to or. Benson such As tebbits Montague and Coghlan. Therefore do the backers of Benson tender a slap in the face a to a a the Many Tow ered Camelot of America. Camelot whose Gross materialists Are making the a Farewell tour of Forbes Robertson such a a a Frost a will not care. It is surf edited with theatres of All kinds. An ill informed person would naturally infer that or. Benson like Augustus in Pinero a comedy is London artist a but nothing of the sort. The London critics who Praise him Moat see him infrequently. His one Long London engagement is remembered As a historic calamity. In the blessed provinces he has been doing really Good work for a Long while. Ilia travelling troupe is a school for actors. Naturally the great Competition in theatricals in new York shuts him out in the height of the season but there is no reason by indispensable proposals for Indus trial a letter written by col. Robby but to Ever but a out of new Jersey. That a Radical red in tooth and claw is the same thing As a real conservative May Puzzle the inexpert. A Little practice makes it easy. When you once understand that burglars Are really theologians that Tho pickpocket is the Best altruist and that the Toper when merry is the finest example of sobriety then the reasoning becomes Plain. Not that the Choice of these examples carries any implication about radicals the examples w Ere picked merely with a View to the Force of contrast. This Way a a heading off a revolution has been recommended to Farmers deploring the loss of lambs by wolves. You cure the Wolf of his fondness for lambs by stuffing him with Lamb until the Mere thought of Ono makes him sick. 8o, if you let revolution autumn books. The classified lists of More than 500 new books compiled for the autumn Book number of the new York times Book review to be published with the sunday times to Morrow indicates that the american publishing Trade is in a healthy condition and that the Supply of Good books is not Likely to run Short. In the Fields of history and biography poetry and philosophy the prom is of the season is excellent while if the fiction list still predominates in length it is obvious that the selection of novels is made much More carefully than it used to be in the Era of Quot Best Sellers Quot and it must be admitted that the typical novel of this hour often has a serious purpose w Holch must be recognized even when it is not admired. These lists Are arranged to facilitate Quick examination and descriptive notes accompany most of the titles. Besides its special lists this noteworthy number of the new Ork times Book review will contain articles treating of various phases of current literature by or. S. Weir Mitchell Ruth Mcenery Stuart t. A. Daly Coningsby Dawson or. Joseph Jacobs George Ken nan j. A. Picard Richard Legallienne and e. Hamilton Bell As Well As the usual summary of news in the world of letters. Who to should got by Utch a i under the Guise of Radical have there Are souls to be uplifted in tra ol1 to�z11 Cago too. Its head and a Clear path All will be Well. As to Turgot he came years too late. The seeds of the French revolution were sown when Louis Xiii. King As any Reader of was the the National Bank act and the Federal Reserve act history is reversing itself in the matter of replacing the Law which Kave Tho country a e sickly son. Tho Duke when the sex of Burgundy was the real cause of Enthus he French revolution. If he had diminution of such profits As his was trivial and i of course he went right ahead doing what he Calls business. Now he has been sentenced to six months in prison and that is different or will be after he has exhausted such possibilities As the Law provide so kindly and in such Large quantities for men As resourceful As he this conviction naturally will be highly satisfactory to All who re pretend the merciless mid unscrupulous exploitation of poverty and i Providence but the Case on which it was founded illustrates the fact that while a Tolman cannot be too much despised his victims Are often if Jet usually people whose woes Are the result of their Folly rather than of their need. From this particular debtor the loan shark tried to extort $5 As interest on a $10 loan for three months. But the Man borrowed the Money not because he really had to have it but because he wanted to give his father a Golden wedding present. Such a gift for those who can afford it is highly commendable and Many a much worse use of Money can be imagined but the father would have been better honoured if the son had shown More sense. Only in instances comparatively rare is application made to these villainous usurers for reasons desperate enough to justify resort to them for their so dangerous Aid and in one Way or another they will probably continue their Thi Evish Trade till the Possession of Wisdom is considerably commoner than it is now.

He is Fon o us but is clearly ready to approve it with j policies by historical precedents amendments. On the other hand the strongest potential criminals support of the Good features of the the names of Schrank Gallagher pending Bill comes from new York. Czolgosz Guiteau and j. Wilkes there has been no warmer commen Booth come to mind in considering Datum and no More constructive Sug the function of the Clearing House for Gest Lons for amendments than those mental defectives maintained by the coming from such Bankers As or. New York Post graduate Hospital he Buhn and or. Vanderlip. This the cases of these assailants of a provides an even stronger contrast Mous men Are typical of Many thou than the altered position of the coun Sands among the population of this try Banks. In 1863 the new York City and state who by reason of men Clearing House committee formally tal defects coupled with Strong vicious condemned the proposal of the present or criminal propensities Are danger. I banking Law. It recorded its opinion Ous to the Community courts and the intention of Congress to give a rebate to american vessels Only should be sustained the disputes with other governments would be Many and unpleasant. Retaliation is already suggested. It would to absurd to involve the country in a War of rates with other countries in order to put a pitiful advantage at the disposal of american shipping. With All respect to or. Underwood a judgment and ability we venture to suggest that he is better at cutting out Tariff favors than to is at trying to Grant them. The original purpose of this provision of the Tariff was unsound in economics and in polities. It was a Petty Concession to a bad policy. It has been ludicrously bungled and the Best thing to do with it is to repeal it. President Yuan. The a a election a a As constitutional president of the Republic of China of Yuan 8hih-Kai is probably the Best thing that could happen for that troubled nation. Under the forms of representative democracy it centres the executive Power in the hands of a Strong Man who has gained and will keep it by intrigue by violence if necessary Verf much after the fashion of the past minus the pm that it would Foster the formation of or. Max d. Schlapp of the Post Wildcat Banks Quot whose notes a a would j graduate Hospital declares that Ai supplant a like amount of Legal ten i most every defective child May at Der notes which the government j some time commit a crime. The con a a could Issue free of All interest and edition of such unfortunates is often Quot which amount the government inherited often acquired it leads to a would have to borrow and pay in helplessness and its victim is Levit a a Terest on at 6 per cent. This loss on ably thrown upon society for support $300,000.000 would amount annually usually in jails reformatories and a a to $18.000.000.�?T�?T the Clearing House almshouses. None of these ins Titu adopted the report of its committee tons is remedial or properly custodial and Congress issued a formal reply. The exhibition now on View in this it is not conceivable that our Clearing City of the w Ork done by the Post House should take such a position this graduate Hospital in its daily clinics year. It ought to be incredible that illustrates the proper method of treat Congress should now be holding on ing defective children before they be Soma Points the position which the come a menace to the Public. Boys Clearing House has abandoned. Yet and girls suspected of mental Defi that is the record. City Banks and Cliency Are referred by official and country Banks have come together charitable agencies to the clinics a upon the essentials of banking and companies by their parents. The currency Reform and both Are oppose cases that Are really Normal Are sifted ing the position of Congress and the out. Leaving a Largo majority to be re Ery Unity of banking opinion is cited i feared to the care of institutions for As proof of conspiracy and the Active the feeble minded like that on ran Les of a capitalist lobby. Dallas Island the Vineland training the truth is that there is a con Spur school in new Jersey the Craig col Acy of experience and common sense ony for epileptics at Sonyea and the against what or. claimed Syracuse state institution for feeble As the a a triumphs of the people Mem minded children. Lord Norr h cum admits that baseball is a pretty Good game As games go and that he highly enjoyed seeing one of the world s series contests but he was not at All impressed by the number of the spectators present. On the contrary he considered the attendance Small and rather indicative that Public interest in what must be our National sport if we have one is neither keen nor widespread. The basis for this conclusion is his lordships memory of the 120,000 or 150,-000 people that assemble to see the most important and Best advertised games of football in England and that is indeed a comparison to make our crowds of Between 80,000 and 40,000 not much of a multitude. Yet we All know that a it it considerable fraction of the american Public does take an ardent interest in baseball and lord a statement that the game is too complicated to be much liked in England is destined to pass with most of us As a criticism not of the game but of those who in his opinion would not be Able to understand it. Probably the real reason Why football attracts bigger crowds in England than baseball does Here lies in the fact that appreciation of the latter game in its finer Points depends More than in Tho Case of the former on the observers nearness to the players. Our present stadiums always filled to overflowing by the Way when the Battle is Between the mighty Are so Large that spectators in the remoter seats hardly get their Money a Worth and if there were 150,000 of them or even 75.000, the deprivation of a satisfactory View of what was done would be general. That addiction to sports is not Here As pervasive of All classes As in England is doubtless True but the difference is not one to fill us with despair. Just As it is not q. Matter of unanimous self congratulation there. As for the difficulties of understanding baseball perhaps they Are staggering to the British agricultural labourer but none of our boys whether living on fifth Avenue or off the bowery seems to find them insuperable. Our Congress men too treat the game As of it w Cre no More puzzling than Tariff or currency problems. Of course the whole of baseball is not to is Learned in a Day but its mysteries Are not As dark As his in experienced lordship imagines. That be the result of the new income tax to the editor of the Yete York times the Federal income tax Law require every collector from time to the to a end Hla deputies through every part of his District and inquire after and concerning All persons therein who Are liable to pay any internal Revenue tax. Thus to Are to have and to feed clothe and Jay an army of Federal spies whose noses will be stuck into the affairs of every Man who is suspected of having an income of �d.u00 or More per year whether from wages salary or from investments. Spies Are justly exec rated in All countries whether Russia or the i United states and we have president Wilson in particular to Hail As the father of spies and the whole Brood of predatory politicians to curse for the coming espionage. But it will be fun for the millions All save the half million whose incomes or earnings reach �8,000 per ear for the horde of clerks prosperous artisans Small shopkeepers Farmers and still peasants who escape the imposition these millions Are of those whose savings Are bodied in the Bill. The first of the triumphs named by or. Bryan is the a a government Issue of notes to be is Perot. It remains to be seen whether Yuan can create a working substitute j sued by the the second is for the curious Bond of Unity supplied a a government control of the Issue of by the dynasty. He has shown great j this these Are principles on strength and skill in dealing with a which or. Bryan says there can be no Complex and perilous situation and is disagreement or Compromise. He Well More Likely than any one else to face successfully the Long and Moie aids Ous task before him. The first need of China is order and Yuan has shown his ability to suppress armed rebellion. To secure and maintain order China must have Money and lenders Are More Likely to Trust Yuan than any one else. Nor is he Urdi Kely to develop better than any Ono else the internal resources of says that this is not All the Bill and that there May be differences regarding details which May be amended at Leisure. This is the administration position As set Forth in or. Bryan a letter to chairman Glass. The Challenge should be accepted the Bankers and the country cannot beat such a proposal now they never can. If they yield now they will have to yield indefinitely. There is every the country which would lend Strong sign that the concessions will have to la to reinforce credit in foreign mar be made to the Bankers and not by vets there will be a Good Deal of j them. The. R is no intention of Man bul somewhat sentimental. Imbuing the importance of fair banking j cities has asked the Board of estimate a Lucero in these institutions the defectives Are segregated where they Are no longer a Public menace and Are protected against the consequences of uncontrolled acts. If curable the care Given Here will cure them if incurable they Are protected for life. By such rational treatment the ultimate expense to the Public should be reduced since the inmates cease to be potential destroyers of property and lives it is conservatively estimated by experts that at least one fourth the inmates of jails and prisons belong to this unfortunate class the members of which Are reproduced in successive generations. The work of the Clearing House for mental defectives is at present supported largely by private funds. It is a Public function it should have Public support. The department of Char when the presi metaphorically Dent yesterday aft the seas Moon touched an Are married. Elect rec Button an4 so in theory at least fired the charge that blew up the Gamboa Dike his act marked the beginning of what can properly be called the very last operation in building Tho Panama canal. There is indeed not a Little More of work to do before it will be an open route for the worlds Commerce but about ail of it will consist of Clearing do Bris out of what engineers Call the a prism a of the great ditch and it is of a kind that will give More employment to muscle than to mind. Water has been flowing through big pipes into the Culebra Cut for some Days past but with the smashing of the Wall separating the Cut from the Gatun Lake the Way from Ocean to Ocean is As open though not As deep As it will Ever be. Poets and some others insist on seeing in the completion of the canal a a a marriage a of the two seas and so it is for the uses of metaphor but the Quantity of one sea that will Ever be mingled with the other in All the years to come could be measured Only by a Homeopath is familiar with a High a the Locking it must be remembered jul be done with fresh water but when a ship arrives from either the Atlantic or the Pacific at the foot of the big stairs by we hich it must ascend to the Lake level it will be in water More or less Salt when the Gates close behind it. A minute part of this water enormously diluted from above will Rise with it and a part still More minute and still More enormously diluted will follow it out into the Lake. After this has been done often enough a in a Century or two perhaps As much As a drop of the Pacific May get through the Many Square Miles of fresh water to the Atlantic end of the Lake and go Down with a ship travelling that Way then again it May not since an opposite and balancing movement will be in action All the time. Actually and practically the distance Between the two oceans is diminished Only by the Short distance from each to the locks nearest it but for oratorical and poetical exultation the innumerable Ages of division Are at an end. When Tolman the King of loan Sharks in this part of the coun try was fined $1,000 a few weeks ago doubtless gave him some pain but the victims of their own Folly. Impaired by the politicians sop to the proletariat. The it unions who have scraped and saved to provide life insurance or put by Money in savings Banks will sooner or later discover that in their passion to sting the More fortunate and the Rich they have stung themselves Fly the very class legislation which the democratic politicians have foisted on the country As a bait for votes. Spies in every House government spies barked by United states marshals courts and the army and Navy if necessary there Are at least 60 internal Revenue collector in the United states and if each a ends an average of 25 deputies to spy out victims a through every part of his District a a total Force of 1,500 Federal spies will be required. As a pigs is pigs a so spies is spies and that is a writing on the Wall. The number of collectors of internal Revenue will be undoubtedly increased from the present limit of 63 to the former number which was equal to the number of congressmen so that the horde of Federal spies is Likely to be from 10 to 30 times greater than the horde of congressmen. Edward s. Beach. New York oct. 9. 1913. President Willard plead for fair treatment from Public. To the editor of Tho a a York times i have just read in the times the editorial article under the caption a the railway the Case of the railroads was so fairly and clearly stated in the article referred to that i feel i ought to write you As i am doing and Tell you of appreciation of the attitude of the times concerning this important question. The nub of the whole matter is contained in the last sixteen line of the article beginning with the words a there la no danger of the railways striking voluntarily. A a a it is absolutely True that when As you say profit and loss shows a sufficient debit the railways will slow Down not because they want to but because they must and that unfortunately is the situation at tie present time and if that condition continues Long enough it will Stop or seriously impede the growing business of the country and i am sure nothing could to More disastrous than such a situation. Fortunately i believe the people generally Aro coming to have a better understanding of 4he railroads Side of the question. It is getting to be better understood for instance that Railroad rates in this country Are. Upon the whole the lowest in Tho world and that railway capitalization which has been so frequently criticised in the past is upon the whole very much Leas than in any of the european countries even in countries where conditions Are somewhat similar to ours. It 1� also understood better than formerly that railway labor in this country is paid from two to three times As much As labor similarly employed upon european railways. The above matters Are All of Public record and it can at least be said for the Railroad that however badly some of them May have been managed at some time in the past they Are. Upon the whole giving cheaper service and paying More wages than is the Case of any other country of the world and the Railroad managers 1 know would be glad to give still better service and furnish better and More ample facilities if they were Able to do so but railroads in one respect at least Are like ail other Industrial concerns they can not pay out Money which they do not have and they can not maintain their credit unless they pay their debts. They can not go on indefinitely receiving less for what they do and paying constantly More and More for what they buy. Such has been the Case however for a number of years past and it has resulted in bringing about the practical stoppage of railway construction and development which exists at the present time. I wish to assure you again of appreciation of the attitude of the times in this connection. D. Willard. Baltimore ., oct. I1913. Appeals to mrs. Dodge mrs. Blatch asks her to cease opposing suffrage. To the editor of the Neto 7ork Timet wih you permit through your columns to make an Appeal about which i feel very deeply i announced to of workers last March intention to go to mrs. Dodge. President of the anti suffrage society and urge upon her the Wisdom of a cessation of hostilities. My coadjutor Laid restraining hand upon declaring such an act would be interpreted As a sign of weakness in the suffrage movement. Temporarily i was subdued. But now three tilings move to carry out old intention and make Appeal instead of a private one to mrs. Dodge Only Public and to a reasonable opponents of woman suffrage. The list Spur to resolve was the editorial in the times condemning the tone and challenging the facts in a statement issued recently by the anti suffrage society. The second Spur was a Wise editorial article in the Tim son sir Alm Roth Wrights a last Book. The last Spur was an incident told to by or. George. He was to speak in a new England town on the George Junior Republic and the chairman of the women s club amp most charming woman escorted him to the platform. She made a remark showing she waa opposed to suffrage and asked his opinion. Quite gently he told her he was in favor of votes for women. Her manner changed and a he bluntly said if he held such views she did not care to hear him speak on any subject and without More ceremony turned on her Heel and marched out of the Hall. Under the prick then of three spurs i enter a plea for a truce and i Back plea with these reasons no Riff rebate Likely to stand Wilson disposed to Side with Underwood to avoid reopening of legislation. Fear sugar and Wool men they May Combine to get free pro vision modified if repeal of rebate is proposed. The cruel a a nose horse Lover urges use of improved feeding pails. To the editor of the Etc York times nearly All the draught horses of this City Are forced to Foed at noon through that monstrous abomination called a a a nose it la difficult to understand How any Horae owner can permit the use of Uch a contrivance. In Boston where the Driver As Well a Tho owners of horses take a Lively personal interest in their teams the feeding is done almost entirely from specially constructed tin palls with wide flaring sides allowing ample room for fresh air and free breathing with plenty of space for the feed. The use of the nose bag a on a horse is the refinement of cruelty which should a stopped and stopped at once. About All the Comfort a work Horae has in life is in its food and drink but the facilities offered Here now to these Ever patient toilers Are Uttich As to make a Man who really loves a horse Long for the Day when they a Hall All have passed out of this great City into a land where they May at least feed comfortably and drink their flu of clean water. W. W. If Aumock. New York oct. 9. 1913. British suffrage critics. A geological curiosity. To the editor of the new York times i wish to bring to your notice an object which i consider worthy of careful attention. It is one Block West of Broadway on 207th Street turning South on the West Side about fifty feet from the Corner. I believe it is on Cooper Street where the City has blasted the Rook for the Road and where May be seen embodied the perfect shape of a Large Snake which was evidently caught up at the time the lava now Rock waa thrown up. I consider to of great interest and our museum no doubt would Cut the slab out As a valuable curiosity. William h. Turner. New York oct. A 1913. Fri. De Forest says they drive women to Militancy. To the editor of the new York times some people seem to think that mrs. Pan Klaist s coming will injure suffrage in this count y. Personally i feel that the to maa suffrage movement Here la so Strong and vital that Tho Advent of any one per on will neither help nor hinder it. The visit of two a John bulls Quot to new York within the last few Days has very effectively opened our minds to the Eort of talk that drives English women to Militancy. If our Public men talked in like vein it would introduce a a a element of sex antagonism into the Campaign Here which i am glad to say is absent. Lord Northcliff naturally Felt rather peeved that All his interviews were headed w Ith such headlines a mrs. Pankhurst will bring no bombs a or englishman opposes mrs. Pankhurst a but All the same he should have shown better sense than to say that women would never get the parliamentary franchise in England because there Are More women than men. Such arguments done to go Down in America. American men Are too fair minded. That is the sort of talk that drives English women to desperate acts and to say a How can one argue with men like that now another britishers has honoured new York with his presence. Sir Gilbert Parker is quoted As a Ayling Quot i am a couple of years ahead in writing Book a but from Tho rest of the interview i judge that it will be about one Century behind the times when it comes out. He goes on to a that when women get the vote lie will take to the veil and yet when he saw it working in Arizona he seemed to think it worked very we a. And he did t Wear any veil to dim Bis judgment a slight inconsistency. He Speaks of a few score of thousands of women voters in California there happen to be 34 score of thousands or in suffrage instead of anti suffrage language 670,987. Nora Blatch de Forest executive Secretary women s political Union. New York oct. 9, 1918. My observer can doubt that in Tho near future women will participate in the government of a very civilized nation. Woman suffrage in coming. No student of politics can doubt that self government for men and women whether under limited monarchies or unlimited democracies will be tried the whole world round. This being so. Those who oppose the further Extension of suffrage to women must admit they can at most Only postpone a political Experiment which the spirit of the times is forcing society to make. Last Spring Appeal to mrs. Dodge would have developed at this Point into a Mere prophecy. I meant to urge that while postponement would not make women any More fit for self government it would introduce bitterness profound and far reaching into our campaigns. To Day i do not need to say r foresee Quot or i a a foretold a a bitterness the fact is Here the prophecy is fulfilled. To the times we owe gratitude for noting the bitterness and sounding the warning. I was wholly unprepared for an attack by the anti suffragists so extreme As to Call Forth condemnation from the press usually opposed to us. Tho first onslaught upon us came last May just after the great Parade and it has been followed by another attack and yet another each adding one touch More of bitterness. There Are those in the suffrage ranks who argue. Quot the anti suffragists. By overshooting the Mark help us. So let them go but i am not thinking merely of winning the vote for women and therefore ready to rejoice Over tactical errors in opponents. L urge consideration of the irretrievable injuries done the scars left after the Battle is Over. Mrs. Dodge and her fellow workers have themselves destroyed the Only argument for postponement. They have changed a time which might have been used by opponents As it is by advocate of woman suffrage As a training ground for citizenship into an Arena of bitterness. Surely Tho Shorter to hts time of strife is made Tho better for women the better for the state. I do not wish to be understood As holding that no least offence has been committed within the suffrage fold though i can truly say i have known of none but i can declare without fear of contradiction that no official statement has Ever been issued by any society of suffragists so venomous in tone that it has merited and received condemnation by the press of the country. In any Case since women in increasing numbers Are entering each year upon the responsibilities of government should not mrs. Dodge frankly ask herself whether the movement she leads serves in any Way to prepare women for Wiser use of the political Power men Are conferring upon them Harriot Stanton Blatch. New York oct. 10, 1913. Special to the new York to mfg. Washington get. Lut although the state department is still perturbed pm Kerning the Prospect of a Tariff War with some of Tho big maritime nation Over the application of the provision in the new Tariff Law granting a 3 per ene. Discount of duties on goods imported in american ships the administration appears disposed to Side with representative Oscar w. Underwood. Den a cratic Leader of the House in his opposition to the repeal of the 5 per cent provision. It was said at the state department to Day that after attorney Genera Reynolds had rendered an opinion a to whether foreign a hips should also have the Benefit of the a per cent discount president Wilson probably would a end a message to Congress a it a the subject. This idea however appears to 1� confined entirely to the state department. Elsewhere in administration circles and in Congress the disposition is to follow the Rule of letting Well enough alone. The democratic leaders a inclined to believe after a very careful consideration of the matter that repeal legislation would open the Way for an Una k on other provisions of the Tariff Law and they do not care to Tak it any chances along that line. There Vai a decided sentiment in the House and the Senate against placing sugar and Wool on the free list but this did not have the Opportunity of full expression because it was involved with Tho general Tariff legislation to which Tho democratic party was committed. The prevalent belief is that should an Effort be made to repeal Tho 5 per cent discount clause the sugar men and the Wool men might Combine in the or in the Senate and succeed in providing for the modification of Tho provisions of the new Tariff Law which place sugar and Wool on the free list at fixed dates in the future. What is most feared is that the opponents of the sugar sections of Tho Law will make a vigorous Effort to Pic vent sugar from becoming free of duty and failing that will attempt to provide for a postponement of the time at which raw sugars shall be transferred from the dutiable to the fre list. In this connection some administration officials and democratic leaders in Congress feel that it would be unwise to bring Forward a repeal bal As an administration measure. President Wilson a disposition in the matter Lias no it been expressed Publ a. But the re is some reason to believe that he is not now inclined to repeal the legislation on account of the danger of a revival of the Tariff question after the country had been surf edited with it and was seeking to rearrange business conditions to conform to the new Law. There is a hopeful feeling on the part of influential democrats that the 8iate department will be Able to work out a Way of giving the Benefit of the 5 or cent discount to goods brought in american ships that do not compete with merchant vessels of countries that have equal rights shipping a Ciau a in their treaties with the United in Tau after the 3 per cent provision was amended so As to provide Liat it should not be applied in a Way that would conflict with the treaty obligation of the United states to foreign nations it was supposed to mean that Only those american ships that were not in Competition with foreign ships whose goods were protected from discrimination in favor of goods carried i american Bottoms would get the bereft of lower duties and that no foreign ship would be a beneficiary. However this View has been changed by Tho literal interpretation placed on the provision by foreign governments and a settlement of the controversy is not Likely to be reached at an Eany a Lay. The prevalent belief is that the Federal courts will ultimately have to Lay Down a construction of the clause. The original clause providing for the discount on duties on articles imported in american ships was suggested by or Nderwood. It is understood that a believes it will stand the test of Legal interpretation and will by construed As granting the discount to american ships Only As it was intended. Punishing the pickpockets.

Peixotto As a teacher because she gave birth to a child it seems Jagt the fundamental Point is overlooked. Her champions protest that her efficiency As a teacher was by no Means affected by motherhood but apparently no one thinks of the far greater question is her efficiency As a Mother affected by continuing As a teacher a body like the Board of education of York cannot afford to stand for any loss of efficiency on the part of mothers. And since it has been proved that Over three times As Many hand fed babies die As babies fed at the breast. It is Clear that no woman can possibly remain efficient both As a Mother and a teacher in the Public school. The care of the infant is indeed Only one phase of this important and Complex prob Lem.
