STREET CAR AND TENEMENT
r V THE qulot, well-ordered and sympathetic
t statement Issued by Bernard J. Newman,
rotary of the Philadelphia Housing Com-
isslon, thero rests a crushing Indictment of
i haphazard methods which havo charac-
rlzed transit developments In Philadelphia.
' (Pro Is In It as well tho most sweeping and
mpclllng reason for tho success of tho Tay-
plan, which now seems In peril of chango.
Essentially the point made by Mr. Newman
i that tho street car Is the deadliest enemy of
ilo tenement up to a certain point. Then
i e str.cet car becomes tho greatest ally of tho
luthhousc. Population settles on tho lino
f transit; when tho lines aro continuous in
v'elopment thero la no congestion; when tho
I es aro laggard, population increases bo-
u.id all normal bounds at tho contres which
i .nslt facilities artificially create. Phlladel
1a has reached such a stage.
Tho Taylor plan will spread population over
a wldo area because It will bring great out-
ns sections Into closo communication with
10 centro of tho city. Homes, always to bo
' und within the roach of transportation, will
u Hung over a wider frontier, and tho tone- -
'nt, that huge and fatal blot on tho mod-
i city, will crumplo and bo destroyed.
Vo had fallen Into the habit of thinking
' -t only property values were to be affected
' transit and that timo alone was to bo
r ved. Tho concise, driving logic of this
. itement reminds us that human lives aro
u at stake.
WE ARE ALL FOR LEAGUE ISLAND
- 13PRESENTATIVE VARE'S series of
i v bills providing for an armor plant, a
"indry, a dry dock and other improvements
League Island embraces a program of do-
t'opment which cannot bo carried out for
cral yenrs. But Mr. Vnro did his duty to
-"iith Philadelphia by tho introduction of
'io measures at the earliest possible moment.
Thero can bo no proper naval preparedness
'ir the nation If tho greater part of tho im-
I nvements called for aro not made, but It
i not likely that Mr. Vnro's bills will bo
timed. Mr. Vnro is a Republican. Tho

' hat is done for League Island will be done

c'o long as it Is done, neither Mr. Varo nor
other Phlladelphlan should caro whose

the proper uso of League Island by the
vernment that we are all fighting for and
u do not care who gets the credit.
DR. JOHNSON ON SHIPPING
"T1HE International Trade Conference, at
I Its third annual session, la moat prop
- y considering the shipping question. Tho
' st statesmanlike suggestion mado before
it delegates came, not from the represen-
live of Secretary McAdoo, who declared
at no subsidy measure would be passed
long as the Democrats were In power,
1 jt from Professor Emory R. Johnson, of
o University of Pennsylvania.
Doctor Johnson has discovered that there
no agreement, either In or out of Con-
cas, on any phase of tho question, save
' at It is important that something be done
maka the United States independent of
i e rest of tho world, so that it can get
i goods abroad, whatever may be happen.
4 to the ships of other nations. If any-
Ing Is to be done, the agreement must
'end further than this.
o Doctor Johnson suggests that the first
'ty for all those who believe something
ight to be done Is to get together In order
1 it they may discover a common ground
i which they can stand and a larger num.
of points on which they can agree, and
' en work out a plan that will commend
elf to expert shipping men, to capitalists
d to the Democrats who are so afraid
i the word subsidy that they are willing
spend any amount of public money to en-
' rgo the merchant marine, if they can call
appropriation by another name.
There must bo statesmanship enough in
a country to solve this problem uatis-
TIHE fierce passion which burns through a
X large part of the latest message, which
as really an address, to Congress is not
matter merely of feeling on the President's
rt, It Is a matter of technique. For long
.- President has been known as a master of
nglish. He has a long and supple sentence,
tilch he can turn nnd swing nd vary to a
Sh degree of effectiveness. Hs has little
r cks of style, but in the present message
H the tricks but the broad lines are his
The strangest thing about the President's
f anner u that he use the moat ancient
etortcal forms and Infuses a new and In-
nse Mfe Into them by merely the change of
word. He speaka of our forefathers' as
at "little, hut bow heroic nation, that In a
gh day of old staked Us very iffa 'f
' wry word of which is "stock," yet which Is
-4 effective by the startling place of the
It 4s not hard to discover Mine, of the
.ualitiea of Mr. Wilson' mind from the con-
tour of his words. Ho uses parallel phrases,
qunllflca and makes for precision with two
and three adjectives, runs up his Indictment
of conspirators precisely as tho Indictment
was drawn up In a moro celebrated docu
mont against George III. The President Is,
In fact, given to ancient Ideals which he In
forms with new life, and tho varied Interests
of his extraordinary mind and his tempera
mental analyses account for nil tho pecu
liarities of his style.
DEMOCRATIC TAXATION FOLLY
THE President has turned his back on tho
tariff ns n revenue producer and has de
clared for Internal taxation as tho princi
pal means for raising tho money needed for
tho now public expenses'. And ho has urged
tho worst form of Internal taxation, that Is,
a tax on Industry.
Tho Internal combustion cnglno Is a tool
In uso In tons of thousands of farms and
small factories It would bo as wise to
tax mowing machines, or sowing machines,
or turning lathes, or printing presses, or
tho pick and spado of tho day laborer. Tho
proposed tax on gasoline would be a second,
though Indirect, tax on Internal combustion
engines, so that tho farmer who runs his
cream sopnrator with a llttlo gasollno motor
would havo to pay a feo to tho revenue
collector for tho privilege of using It, nnd
an additional feo on every gallon of gaso
line consumed In It.
Tho tax on fabricated steel Is llkowlse
n tax on industry. It would bo as just to
tax shirtwaists and trousers, and compol tho
clothing maker to attach a pink revenue
stamp to the trousers nnd a bluo one on tho
Every such tax Is a burden on domestic
production nnd consumption. A tariff on Im
ports, properly assosscd, encourages domes
tic production, Is distributed so widely be
tween tho producer nnd the consumor that
no one feols it.
And It also mtses revenue.
If thero Is not enough economic Judgment
In the majority In Congross to discover a
bettor wny of raising revenue than by heavy
direct taxes on Industry, there ought to be
political Instinct onough to senso the danger
to any party which commits Itself to such a
But, as the Democracy has neither po
litical Instinct nor economic Judgment, tho
country may havo to enduro Its Imminent
afflictions till such tlmo as the Republicans
can bo returned to power.
BUSINESS IS PICKING UP
THERE will bo moro widespread interest
in tho appendix of Secretary McAdoo's
report than In the body of tho document
Itself, for tho appendix contains a summary
of business conditions prepared by three
commercial agencies. R. O. Dun & Co.,
Brndstrcet nnd Bnbhon ull find that thero
hns been nn awonlshlng revival of pros
perity In the last year.
They say that wnr orders have, of course,
been partly responsible for tho recovery,
but they find that goods aro selling at better
prices than n yenr ago, that the demand for
nearly everything except pork nnd cotton
is brisk, that the demand for labor is
greater than the supply, that wages nre good
and that the retnll business Is prospering to
tho same extent as the wholesale.
Mr. McAdoo is gratified with the report of
improved business conditions, but his satis
faction cannot be nearly so great ns that
of tho country at largo. The business boom
Is proof that tho foundations of national
prosperity aro laid so deop and built so
firmly that not oven the blunders of nn In
expert Democratic Administration can shako
them for long.
ST. LOUIS FOR THE DEMOCRATS
THERE Is a large Gorman-American pop
ulation In Missouri, nnd tho Administra
tion Is not popular among tho Democrats
of that State. Senator Reed is a candidate
for re-election, and he Is not certain that
he can defeat hiB Republican opponent.
These aro somo of tho reasons that havo
been unofficially advanced for tho decision
of the Democratic National Committee that
tho next national convention should bo held
In St. Louis.
On tho first ballot Dallas was second nnd
Chicago third. At the suggestion of the
Dallas people, St. Louis was chosen unani
mously on the second ballot. The signifi
cance of the small vote for Chicago will not
bo lost upon those who recall where the
Democratic strength lies.

provlnco of this chapter to show
what tho laws of the table are. It will bo tho
duty of the reader. In tho varied relations of
life, to make such uso of them as circum
stances shall permit.
RULES TO BE OBSERVED.
Sit upright, neither too close nor too
away from the table.
Open and spread upon your lap or breast
a napkin, If ono Is provided; otherwise a hand
kerchief. Do not be In haste; compose yourself; put
jour mind Into a pleasant condition and resolve
to eat slowly.
Possibly graco will be said, and tho most
respectful attention and quietude should bo
observed until tho exercise Is passed.
It Is the most appropriate time, while you
nalt to be served, for you to put into practice
jour knowledgo of small talk and pleasant
words with those whom j-ou aro sitting near.
Do not be Impatient to be served. If soup
comes first and you do not desire It, j'ou will
simply say, "No, I thank you," but mnko no
comment; or you may take It and eat as little
as jou choose. Tho other course will bo along
The soup should be eaten with a medium
sized spoon, so slowly and carefully that you
will drop none upon your person or the table
cloth Making an effort to get tho last dtop und
all unusual noise when eating should bo avoided.
DRINKING FROM THE TEACUP
Formerly It wns the fashion to pour tea Into
tho saucer; not so now. Tea should be gently
sipped from the spoon or cup, tnktng cup and
spoon In hand (Fig. 15)
wnen arinKlug, as
shown In the accom

spoon should never be
removed from the cup
when the guest is sat

Spoon out and place It beside
the cup In the saucer is
an intimation to the
waiter to have it refilled. If not empty and the
spoon Is placed beside the cup, thus, it is an
Intimation to the waiter that you want the tea
or coffee changed. Do not call for "milk"; call
for and speak only of "cream." Never set your
teacup upon the tablecloth. In taking sugar,
use only the sugar-spoon
The cup with hsndle, or of unusual tlze. inuy

George S. Webster a Diligent Student
of What Other Cities Are Doing.
Views on Opportunities in
HARBORS and docks loom largo In the now
literature dealing with tho life and de
velopment of tho modern city. Boston and
Seattle, Genoa nnd that storied city of tho
Near East, Salonlca, aro frequently cited
examples. Nobody In Philadelphia Is more
fully awaro of tho opportunities to bo pre
sented to tho city nnd to tho State of Penn
sylvania through port development at this
converging point of trade and transportation
than tho now Director of Wharves, Docks
and Ferries. Director Webster, It can bo said
without qualification, sees moro In tho prob
lems nnd tasks now beforo him than their
technical and engineering aspect. A fow min
utes' conversation Is amply sufllclcnt to con
vlnco ono that his conception of public service
Is based on a broad comprehension of tho
Interests of tho community as a whole. His
appointment, moreover, Is a gratifying recog
nition of tho valuo of expert servlco in city
The appointment Is recognized In nil quar
ters as nonpolltlcnl. The man certainly
doesn't look like a politician. You can't always
tell a politician from his looks, of course, hut
Webster has no moro the aspect or manner of
ono than does tho City Manager of Dayton,
who gives tho Impression of having business
to do and of doing that business ns the first
and foremost matter of consideration. Tho
directness and efficiency of the trained en
gineer aro apparent In Mr. Webster from
tho first meeting; but If he's not demonstra
tive ho Is cordial and If ho's not particularly
communlcatlvo to a question-asking stranger
he's as courteous nnd friendly as could bo
wished. Tho Interview yesterday wns Inter
rupted so many times by telephonic congratu
latlonn that plainly enough tho Mayor's
appolnteo Is lacking neither in friends nor in
the capacity for friendship. As for Mr.
Smith's confidence in tho man. It Is no great
er than Mayor Blnnkcnburg's, and it is worth
noting that whllo administrations havo como
nnd gono at City Hall Mr. Webster hns
remained quietly and steadfastly on his Job
as Chief Engineer of the Bureau of Surveys.
For 22 years ho has held that office, and for
38 ho hns been connected with tho bureau.
Eager to contribute toward the prosperity
of Philadelphia by rendering the port facili
ties as nearly adequate as possible to tho
volume of business which should como ttls
wny, he understands that physical equipment
Is not tho only thing needed.
"A cltj', like a private business or industrial
concern, must advertise. It Is no uso having
the natural udvantages and the physical
facilities If we don't mnko them known In a
convincing way. Engineering nnd publicity
must go together In the development of tho
Work and Recreation
He doesn't look his age, which Is 60 years.
Forty would be a reasonable guess. Golf a
his chief recreation, but ho hasn't much tlmo
for that, ns his friends testlfj'. Work and his
home seem to take up most of his time.
The various important public Improvements
which have been carried through under his
direction have been described In these col
umns, Not so much Is known of his work
In connection with national organizations, A
prominent member of the American Society
of Civil Engineers, he has been a leader In
cement experimentation, a lino of study and
Investigation which has rapidly Increased In
Importance in tho engineering profession.
As an engineer ho Is not to be described as
a spcclalibt. But his associates marvel how
he has found tho time to become so thor
oughly familiar with so many different de
partments of civil engineering. Engineering
science is tending more and moro toward
specialization bridge engineering, sanitary
engineering, and so forth and so on, Mr.
Webster keeps up wth what is going on In
every line, and hot content with secondhand
Information, ho has visited all the large cities
of America and Europe to look on their ex
perlmonts and achievements with his own
eyes. It Is said that in tho earlier days of
his professional practice he rarely took a va
cation. He was too busy. Now he utilizes
his vacation tlmo to familiarize himself with
what other cities are doing through the nM
of engineers In the way of self-development.
Probably few men are better acquainted with
the progress of municipal engineering in this
country than this man who will have a large
part to play in building the futuro of the
port of Philadelphia. That ho stands In the
forefront of his profession in the United
States It evident, and the University of Penn-
A QUILL FROM THE EAGLE'S WING
sjivanla recognized tho fact sovornl years
ago by conferring on him the high degreo of
Doctor of Sclenre.
Doctor Webster believes whole-heartedly
that civil engineering is an excellent profes
sion for young men to choose. Ho himself,
as might readily bo supposed, likes his work,
and likes It immensely. That probably ac
counts, In largo part, for his success. But
the opportunities, ho Is sure, wero never
better than they aro now, if as good. En
gineering sclenco Is growing In Importance.
Engineers aro being called to fill importnnt
executive posts as novcr before. Tho train
ing, said Doctor Webster, admirably fits n
man for executive work. Ho spolco of the
city managers, several of whom are civil
engineers, and of tho heads of great rail
roads nnd Industrial enterprises. Goethals
was mentioned as a civil engineer who ha3
dlsplaj-cd wonderful capacities as an exec
utive. With tho development of tho country
great engineering works are being under
taken, and there Is plenty of room for tho
hard-working, ambitious man In tlicso enter
prises. Success in Engineering
Asked what ho considered tho essential
qualifications for success, Doctor Webster ro
plled: "Energy, determination, Initiative."
Then ho added that a college education,
though desirable, Is not an absolute neces
slty. A young man with tho thrco qualities
named can succeed today in tho engineering
profession. Ho pointed out, however, that
with tho educational facilities now available
thero Is not tho compulsion which formerly
existed In so many cases for doing without
tho advantago of scientific training under col
Georgo S. Webster was born October 19,
