CAUSE AND REMEDY IN THE
THE Grand Jury's presentment Is not
so much a whitewash as It Is a cry
Examine some of Its statements:
We could find nb expedient to ex
tract the Iruth from men who. In our
Judgment, deliberately perjured th?m
rehe to shield jlit another.
Whllo llltlo has been adduced
prove that tho polite have any connec
tion with politic the testimony Is -tich
as Justifies tho Gtand Jury In believing
such to bo the cbm
tn nnny cass it wa shown that the
cfTlcers supposed tc be doing quaran
tine duty woro on the mo-t friendly
and Intimate teiin with the Inmate
and proprietors of ho houses they weri
supposed to guard.
In other words, the liars had their
Inning and tho Grand Jury heard enough
to know that grafters and panders nnd
rnnltnllzer.i of vice nre not so thin-
skinned that thoy hesltato to swear to
lies when noccssary. Possibly ono or two
of tho perjurers could have boon trapped,
but thoy wore not.
Tho Grand Jury explains tho Immunity
of all sorts of disorderly places ns duo to
tho extravagant rentals obtained by the
owners, dereliction on tho part of Indi
vidual members 6t tho police force, an
Inadequacy In the number of police and
the Interference ot politicians. Were It
not for tho last reason thcra would be
none of the others. Vice and politics
are linked together. They mnrch hand
In hand, each dependent on tho other
nnd each tho protector of the other.
Tho Grand Jury Is evidently fully
aware of tho Iniquity of tho maglstiates,
whose courts havo becomo tho breeding
ground for rascality of all kinds and the
treasury of legal blackmailers and (lis
reputablo exploiters of vice. It Is tho
ultimate absurdity to expect the dispens
ing of Justice from tribunals that are
themselves tho most vicious exnmples
of vonallty and crookedness existing In
Two things, then, arc of some Im
portance, so far as the vice situation Is
concerned. Tho first Is the enforcement
of tho Swift act, which strikes at tho
owners who rent premises for disreputa
ble purposes. Tho second li tho aboil
tlon of tho entire magistrate sysiem.
But the big thing to be accomplished,
as the Grand Jury dlscoveied, although
It was vory mild In stating It, la to tako
tho pollco out of politics. "There should
be legislation enacted which would"" pre
clude tho possibility of pollco In politics."
Very good, but what kind of legislation?
Wo do not want a police force controlled
from Harrlsburg. Yet It must be con
trolled somehow, and that means a local
control. This brings the situation back
ultimately to control as tho result of a
local election, nnd It Is In the local elec
tion that the vlco district strikes the
great blow for Its self-protection. It Is
this circle of Interests, this close associa
tion between the political organization
and vice, that seems almost to preclude
the possibility of divorcing the police from
politics or vice from politics.
There Is but one solution, despite any
palliative legislation which skin7 can de
vise, and that solution Is the banding to
gether of good citizens to elect to office
men of conscience who are not the
creatures of the Organization. The whole
question goes back to the election boxes.
Unless a cure Is found there It cannot be
found at all. This Is so obvious that it
needs no elucidation. Never will men
elected by the underworld stamp out the
underworld. It la not human nature that
The Mayor, however, declares that he Is
going to make Philadelphia "the cleanest
city in America." The test of his ability
to do so Is the fate of Director Wilson.
We suspect that the publlo will have
little faith in future law enforcement if
the man who sanctioned the return of
gambling machinery to their owners Is re
tained In office. What Is needed more
than anything else Immediately Is a new
Director of Public Safety.
NEW FACILITIES MAKE
MAYBE the pessimists can smile. It
has hurt them to think of Philadel
phia having an adequate transit system,
for in their horizon there Is 'room for
nothing but bankruptcy, yet we suspect
that even they may be able to get some
satisfaction from the experience of New
The Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company
reports that there is "a satisfactory re
epqnse to such new facilities as have
been placed in operation," Yet the new
facilities referred to are merely feeders
for the new subways, and It was not ex
pected or even suspected that they of
themselves would show good results.
In comparing two competitive high
speed systems in New York, the Times
points out that "neither grew at the ex
pense of the other, and the growth of
the elevated business was in the latest
three months nearly double the cost of
the fixed charges of providing it. The
more the passenger business of New
York Is divided the more there is to
divide. In other words, the business
grows with the facilities for doing it"
The P. It. TJ need have no fear that
the new high-speed system here will do
It any harm. It Is, on the contrary, going
to do Just what new facilities did In New
York and what they have done else
where, namely, Increase tho business and
prove to be in every sense a profitable
investment financially for the city and
the company and, profitable In comfort

Bo now I strip my soul of flesh an' send
it scampering back,
Through more than half a hundred years,
along a shining track
To days before I saw the light, vet days
that always hold
A vivid corner In my mindt through tales
my father told.
With him an' those who follow on with

From Schuylkill Seventh now we're
wheeling into Chestnut street.
The moon is nearly at the full (juit as It
And all the cobbled highway there is

The street lampi, weakly flickering, pate
in the glow of it,
The torches that the marchers bear are
wisely left unlit.
J march with Dad, an' as we go the hot
tears nearly blind me
To hear the fife an' drum corps play "The

Before the Maikoc House (where now
the Itccord Building stands)
Wc feel the animating spur of many clap.
Pat Dougherty is in the croicd, we note,

A window opens out on one o' those
queer little porches

used to boast.
An' next you know Abe Lincoln's there
above the shotting host.
The tall, gaunt figure leans far out above
the iron rail,
An' in the torches' wavering light his
face looms deadly pale.
He speaks with earnest iceling; we hear,

A poet an' a prophet rnore perfect than
He holds us to the finish an' when the

tragedy here has proved that Solomon
knew what he was talking about when he
My son, attend unto wisdom, and
bow thine ear to my undestandlng:
Tho lips of a strange woman drop as
a honoycomb.and her mouth la smoother
than oil; but her end Is bitter as worm
wood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
Her feet go down to death; her steps
take hold on hell.
Let not thine heart decline to her
ways, go not astray In hep paths. For
she hath cast down many wounded; yea
many strong men have been slain by
Her house Is the way to hell, going
down to the chambers of death.
She sitteth at the door of her house,
on a seat In the high places of the city,
to call to passengers who go right on
Whoso Is simple. let htm turn In
hither; and as for him that wanteth un
derstanding, she salth unto him:
"Stolen waters are sweet, and bread
eaten In secret Is pleasant."
But he knoweth not that the dead
are there; and that her guests are In
the depths of hell. S. G. P.
Philadelphia, August 11, 1918.
To the Editor of the Evening Ledger;
Sir The primary election system Is a
very Interesting subject, and there are
about as many varieties of It as there are
States In the Union or countries where It
may be In force. The present primary
system In the State of Pennsylvania rep
resents that element or thought in the
human mind of the citizens of the State
which Is looking constantly for Improve
ment In clvlo affairs. All men have this
quality, and respond to It In a greater or
less degree. The primary election system
after once having gained a place tn some
one State has spread like contagious dis
eases of childhood to most of the other
States, but It has had to contend In every
Instance with the conservative element,
which Is satisfied with things as they are
or were and wants nothing new nor better.
It Is not strange, therefore, that some very
peculiar provisions find their way Into all
reform measures, and particularly Into bal
lot reform laws. There aro Improvements
likewise being brought forward from time
to time, and those States which have adopt
ed the laws latest having had the benefit
of the experience of earlier laws In other
States have, or should have, better laws
qn the' subject The situation reminds me
of the paving system In our streets as In
the city ot Chester, for Instance, our mu
nicipality has from times long back had
part ot its BtreeU paved, the first effort
being cobblestones, then belglan blocks, as
phaltum blocks and finally the smooth pave
ments of the present day. From the orig
inal vest pocket system In force In many
States, and still regretfully remembered
by many citizens in association "with the
good old days of the pasTTwe have pro
gressed to, the official ballot furnished by
the State, with the expense of printing
and furnishing tho ballots belpg borne by
It also. This form of voting has prqved
generally acceptable, and Is a substantial
advance over the methods long in. use pre
viously. The next step was the. taking
over by the State of the supervision of. Drl-1
mary elections, having the primary elec
tions of all parties held on one day desig
nated by law and conducted by tho regular
election officers, thus doing away with sep
arate primary elections on different days
for the different parties, many of which
were very loosely conducted and their re
sults consequently unsatisfactory.
Still another advance In the general for
ward movement for ballot reform Is the
nonpartisan method of election, which ar
rived last, but which will apparently out
live and replace the various systems which
havo preceded It The nonpartisan system
restores to the voters the personal touch
iPwMi H 4)
which the candidates for office originally
had with the electors, but which the electors
gradually lost by the usurpation of their
rights by tho boss system. The nonpartisan
system offers to each voter his choice of
the various candidates upon the ticket re
moved from the prejudice of party ties
and bosslsm. It offers to any eligible per
son tho right to become a candidate for
office. It Is true that hostile legislatures
may make the conditions for becoming a
candidate burdensome, but this samo con
dition has been present to some extent In
all laws looking to the reform of the bal
lot system, but these hardships where they
exist aro being gradually eliminated in the
course of time when the same legislatures
are convinced that tho laws have come to
stay, nnd they become willing to take to
themselves credit for Improved legislation
on this subject. Greater freedom to be
come a candidate for office Is a desirable
thing In Itself, nnd the young man who
has ability and besides a character and a
mental temperament attuned to the wel
fare of tho people will find ballot reform
In general and the nonpartisan method In
particular a means of advancement to po
litical success. CHARLES PALMER.

PEACE AND POLAND
To the Editor of the Evening Ledger:
Sir One may firmly believe that a new
peace In Europe will be soon restored and
uttermost happiness will spread Its wings
on the desolated countries and unhappy na
tions. But If one thinks that peace wltl
be restored without reparation of wrongs
perpetrated for centuries on subdued na
tions that one may bo vastly and sadly
mistaken. For such peace will be a new
crime of nations, and an everlasting shame
for European civilization. Among these
nations there Is one which was feloniously
torn asunder In the last century. She ts
the buffer state of western civilization, the
knight of nations the oldest warrior for
the cause of freedom and Justice. She to
day, again by violence and force, Is thrown
on the bed of blood, fire and smoke, mur
dering her own children by order of her
enemies, sinking the steel In the breasts of
her own sons, fathers and brothers. She
demands peace, and a new kind of peace.
She demands a peace which will be last
ing and holy, not as heretofore founded on
Injury, misery and violence. She demands
a peace which will create a new kind of
peace, a peace that will declare to ail the
world that all harm and grievances are for
gotten and that violence and Injury are
cast away, a peace that will hall a new
world existence. And her name is Poland!
Manayunk, Pa., August 10.
UNCLE SAM'S SHABBINESS
To the Editor of the Evening Ledger;
Sir Why cannot Uncle Sam keep his
buildings aa clean as those owned by pri
vate buslress men? As I walked through
the corridor of the Postofflce today I stopped
to look at soma workmen putting ventilat
ing lights In the upper sashes ot the win
dows on the Ninth street side. They had
the sashes; on horses, where I could see
them. The glass looked as If It had not
been washed for months, and as I looked
along the, casings ot the windows I saw
they were thick with dust. I was ashamed
of- my Government that would permit such
slovenly housekeeping. J feei a similar
shame when I see the shabby and rattling
mall wagons going from the railroad sta
tions to the Postofflce. Qnly a business on
the verge of bankruptcy would permit the
use of such vehicles.
