THE wisdom of tho undents has very little
appeal to tho members of tho Industrial
Relations Commission. "Verily" thcy mis
quote the Book of Job, "wo aro tho people;
and wisdom shall die with us."
Tho wisdom of tho ancients, by a strango
freak of fate, did not die with them. 'Thoy
left It as tho record of their experience that,
ln the words of Goethe "The best govern
ment Is that which teaches us to govern
ourselves." Tho members of tho commission
ore rather of tho opinion that tho best gov
ernment Is that which lets us Interfere most
with tho lives of others.
In tho mass of platitudes, accusations, par
tisan argument and recommendations which
mako up so much of tho commission's re
ports, the conspicuous thing Is the emphasis
placed on law-making. "Thero ought to be a
lawl" sounds through every pago. Laws to
limit freedom and laws to force freedom on
those who do not want It; laws to abolish
poverty and laws to encourage home buying;
good laws and bad laws; laws for everything
from morals to the money market aro cov

commission. It was onco suggested by Gil
bert K. Chesterton that thero would soon be
a law forbidding a man to go out ln the rain
without his goloshes.
The frenzy for passing laws Is one of tho
weaknesses of American character. Thou
sands ot unnecessary, ineffective laws are
passed each year. Is It any wonder that re
spect for law. which respects. Itself so little,
should be waning?
There Is another bit of wisdom tho commis
sion might take to heart. It was spoken by
John Sclden ln the seventeenth century, and
mildly suggests that "they that govern tha
most make the least noise."
A Single Fare to Everywhere
THE ground covered ln Director Taylor's

ground over which Phtladelphlans havo trav

Driving in the Hyphen
COMING at a tlmo whon the nervous sys
tem of the country Is feverishly sensi
tive, Miss Agnes Reppllcr's attack on "Tho
Modest Immigrant" amounts almost to a
political Indiscretion. Religious prejudice,
racial antagonism and national animosity are
skilfully Interwoven, and a malicious and
deadly sneer looks out from the countenance
of the Atlantic Monthly, disfiguring that
most kindly and genteel of magazines.
It one could be ln tho least persuaded that
Miss Rcppllcr loves America thero might
be soma excuse for this Ill-considered, Ill
tempered article. But what comes out Is
that Miss Reppller hates Germans, hates
Jews, Is mildly tolerant of Irishmen and
Italians, and Is possessed of the extraordi
nary idea that German and Jew, Magyar and
Czech cannot be Americans. Sneering al
ways, she insinuates that tho foreign-born
havo to be paid to take baths, live In
Ghettos because they prefer Ghettos to pal
aces, and are In absolute 'domination of our
body politic. She lumps the German-American
agitation with the, protest of Hebrews
against reading the "Merchant of Venice,"
makes a .farce of religious, mental and moral
liberty, and In a desperate effort to osBert

"ON THE JOB" AT
THE GOLDEN HORN
- ai, ,! aa)
Ambnssndor Morgcnthnu Is n Man
Trained ln BusincBS for Diplo
macy First Knew America
as an "East Slder"
By ELLIS RANDALL
THE American Ambassador at Constanti
nople Is right In tho thick of things.
"I am hero on tho Job," reported Morgen
thau, In characteristically simple fashion,
when he nrrlved In
his appointment as
he's "on tho Job" to
day. There was
nothing noisy about
that statement. It
merely summed up
his sense of duty.
Morgenthau is pre
eminently a concen
trator. One might
think that anybody
would havo to con
centrate on the Job
which this German
Jew Is fllllnr. osdc-
HKNIIY MOItOKNTHAU. c,ny udcr tn6
present circumstances, but with Morgenthau
It Is a lifelong habit. Ills othor namo Is
concentration. He has bocn "on tho Job"
ever slnco ho was n mere boy at tho age
of 16 the death ot his father mndo him "tho
man" of a largo family la New York'B East
In 1912 Woodrow Wilson and tho campalirn
managers chose Morgenthau for chairman of
the Flnanco Commltteo of the Democratic
National Committee. Within a short while
ho was nblo to show funds upward of $1,000,
000, but tho way he went at his Job Illus
trated his lifelong hnblt. Ho never tries to
do two things at once, hut centres his efforts
on tho single end In view. When ho was
made chairman of tho Flnnnco Committee ho
was ono of the leading renl cstato operators
of Now York. One day ho put on his hat
and announced, "I won't bo ln tho office until
after November 1." For the tlmo being he
turned his back completely upon the man
agement of his great real cstato Interests,
but ho couldn't or ho wouldn't have dono
that unless he had dono what all good busi
ness men do, trained up a staff of assistants
and associates ln the nays of self-reliance
The Habit of Concentration
An amusing side light Is thrown upon the
Ambassador's utter simplicity when formali
ties could bo dispensed with. When his fam
ily arrived at Constantinople and It was nec
essary to put tho embassy ln shape, Mr. Mor
genthau promptly shed his coat und set about
hanging pictures In a thoroughly democratic
manner. For tho time being, his problem
was a domestic one, his whole heart was
In doing the work well and with freedom.
Again, he was concentrating, and ln Just tho
same spirit ho has already turned his mind
to tho more serious diplomatic problems that
have arisen during his Incumbency.
There have been many of these, yet the
American people generally know little of
them or the triumphs Sir. Morgenthau has
won by tact, patience and his friendly way.
As a friend has expressed It, "Henry Mor
genthau has probably asked fewer questions
of tho Stato Department than nny other man
In our diplomatic service, and yet, has dono
his work well and anticipated tho develop
ment of events."
Tho American Ambassador to Turkey Is a
man who combines charm of manner and
personal magnetism with wonderful sim
plicity of character. He Is generous and
never bears a grudge, and is the first to offer
an excuse for another man's shortcomings.
But ho is a man of courage, as his achieve
ments In tho difficult situation ln Turkey
abundantly prove. His gift of making friends
Is a personal characteristic which Is of no
little valuo ln his present post.
Some ono asked Mr. Morgenthau Just be
fore he sailed for Constantinople why he had
accepted the Ambassadorship, and his an
swer Is characteristic of the man: "It Is a
good thing to i each out for new experience
ln this busy and absorbing world of ours."
And when It was remarked that his now
field of activity would bo along seemingly
far different lines from those of his past
years, he declared that his business career
had been essentially a diplomatic training,
Inasmiich as he had had to do with all sorts
of men and conditions and had striven to give
satisfaction and to maintain harmony or to
effect an equitable adjustment of difficulties
na thcy arose. Commonly, business Is not
looked upon aa a school of diplomacy, but
what Mr, Morgenthau has already accom
plished In Turkey Is proof of the correctness
ot his assertion.
Born in Germany
Henry Morgenthau was born In Mannheim,
Germany, April 26, 1856. When he was 9
years old his family came to America. Hen
ry's thirst for an education developed early.
He went through tho publlo schools while
helping to support his mother and brothers
and sisters. Ho taught night school while
a student at tho College of the City of Now
York, which he attendod one year, then en
tering the Columbia Law School, from which
he was graduated ln 18T8. After practicing
law for a number of years ho went Into the
real estatd buslnoss on a largo scale. Some
of his enterprises have notably contributed
to the skyline of Lower Manhattan. He has
been prominently Identified with clvlo and
religious work of various kinds, co-operating
with Rabbi Wise ln the establishment of a
Mr. Morgenthau'a appointment attracted
attention abroad, and the Jewish Chronicle,
of London, had this to say upon the fcub
Jcct: "It Is symbolic of the absolute equal
ity which the Government of tho United
States grantB alt Its citizens; and It derives
ndded Interest from the fact that Mr. Mor
genthau began his career in America aa a
boy Immigrant' The very large Jowlslj in
terests bound up with the Ottoman Empire
Increased the Importance of Mr. Morgen
thau'a selection, and American missionaries
have had reasons for thankfulness that
President Wilson chose as ho did. Robert
College conferred on him Iaat spring tho de
gree of doctor of laws.

tho nation that Lincoln had mastered the
problem which was perplexing It and could

and tho Integrity of
Thousands of ad
mirers of Ellhu Root
today are saying
that his Albany
speech of Monday
will make him Pres
ident. For several
months his name
has been first ln the
minds of many Re
publican leaders tn
all parts ot the tho
ELIHU ROOT country. A canvass
made In July disclosed the fact that the
other men mentioned for the Presidency
wero second and third In the popular run
ning. A New York leader said that Root
could have the delegation from that State
for the asking.
Mr. Root, however, is not a candidate. He
announced ln tho Senato a short tlmo before
his term expired that ho had no expectation
of holding another office. Ho was too old
and hoped to spend tho remaining years of
his life ln honorable retirement; and when
ever the subject of the Presidency has bocn
mentioned to him ho has dismissed It with
the remark that the suggestion that he run
No Intention to Hake n Popular Appeal
Yet two weeks ago William Barnes said
that Mr. Root could be nominated without
any effort on his part. His Albany speech
has convinced many observers that It will
be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible, for
him to prevent his nomination. The political
value of the speech lies ln the absence of any
Intention to make a popular appeal for sup
port. The nation knowa Mr. Root's desires.
It Is aware that he hopes to go back to tho
college hill In Clinton where he was born
and dovoto himself to rest and reflection ln
well-earned leisure. Ho has lived 70 years
and has been connected with great affairs
and has held high office. It was out of the
fullness of his experience that he uttered
his protest against the continuance of "in
visible government" and called upon his fellow-delegates
ln tho Constitutional-Convention
to be truo to their oath to follow their
consciences In voting for a fundamental law
that would make It easier for tho people to
rule and more difficult for the bosses to frus
trate their will.
The speech Is a platform on which all fac
tions of Republicans can unite, whether he
be tho iead of the ticket or not. In It all
the unrest and dissatisfaction with political
methods became vocal. And when Root compared-
tho system with that under which
Walpole controlled tho British Government
by bribery and said that it could be re
formed as the British system has been re
formed, ha uttered the hope that haa Inspired
patriotic citizens for many years.
Not even Mr. Root's political opponents
deny his fltness for the Presidency. His
great abilities aro admitted, r Ho a on8 ot
the most distinguished lawyers In America,
Althgugh the late William C. Whltney'a
compliment haa been turned Into an attack
by his enemies, It Is, nevertheless, high
feralse. Mr. Whitney, It wU be recalled,
said that he had employed many lawyers
who could tell hlra there was no way to do
what he wanted to do, but that Mr. Root
was the first lawyer he had found who could
toll him how to do that which he sought to
aocomplls,h. Instead of hunting for ob
stacles. Mr. Hoot found a way around them.
PoJnU the Way to Reform
He Is exercising tha same faculty In the
Conatltutlonal Convention when he Is telling
the delegates that the first step toward put
ting tha control of the Government of New
York in the hands of the people Js tha adop
tion of the short fcailot and the concentra
tlen of executive power In the hands of tha
Oowmaor aM en or two HUr elected of-
praise Is oven higher, for ho said that Root
was tho ablest man ho had known ln tho
Government service and the greatest man
that has appeared ln tho public life of any
country in any position on either side of
tho ocenn in his time.
Tho career of tho man Is famlllor. When
he was elected a delegate to tho Constitu
tional Convention, now ln session, it was ad
mitted before tho convention assembled that
he would bo Its president. Ho stood so far
abovo every ono else that thero was no
competition. What his fellow lawyers think
of him was Indicated when the American
Bar Association at Its recent meeting chose,
him as Its president while ho was absent at
tending to his duties ln Albany.
His father, who was a professor of mathe
matics ln Hamilton College, wanted him to
become a teacher, and young Root did teach
one year ln tho Rome Academy; but ho pre
ferred the law. When ho was admitted to
tho bar ho started to practlco ln New York
city. Ho vas ono of the associate counsel
ln tho defense of William M. Tweed, and
suffered ln reputation becauso of tho Ingeni
ous skill which he showed In tho conduct
of his part of the cose. Ho then associated
himself with the reform wing of the Repub
lican party ho was a Republican while hold
ing a retainer from Tweed and interested
himself in local politics. Twelve years after
ho was admitted to' tho bar he was the Re
publican candidate for Judge of the Court of
Common Pleas; but, of course, was defeated
ln a Democratic city. This is tho only elect
ive offlco for which ho ever ran, If, wo ex
cept his candidacy as a dclegato to two Con
stltutlonal Conventions. His law business
dealt largely with great corporations, and
he regarded himself as a weak political can
didate for that reason. But his close con
ncctlon with great buslnoss enterprises ac
customed him to dealing with large affairs.
He Reorganized tho Army
When ho succeeded Russell A. Alger aa
Secretary of War he found the War Depart
ment managed ln an unbuslness-llko way and
tho army suffering from dry rot. Under hlo
administration the army waa reorganized,
tho general staff was created and a law was
passed Increasing tho efficiency of tho militia.
Ho drew tho plans for the Government of
Cuba and for tho management of the Phil
Ipplnes. On his retirement from tho Cabinet
tho foundations were laid for the expansion
of the army Into an efficient weapon of na
He was tho natural successor of John Hay
In tho State Department, and after an In
terval lnfho practice of tho law he took up
tho work of that distinguished statesman
and conducted It with such skill that he won
International reputation. Ho made a tour of
South America for tho purpose of cultivating
more friendly relations with tho nations
there, and ho began that policy of Intimacy
which has been continued to this day. The
Nobel peace prize was awarded to him for
his work In behalf of peace, nnd his distinc
tion had become so groat that New York
elected him to the Senate, And, as already
Indicated, he stepped from tho Senate Into
the chair of the prcsjdlng officer of the con
vention which is revising tho New York
To return to the Albany speech, from
which we started, Its Intense moral earnestr

from every other speech thus far made In

hearts of Its hearers, who, doubtless, while
thoy respected tho hope uttered In the clos
