It la reported that an attempt will
be made In the Duma to glvo Russian
Jews the rights of other Russian sub
jects. If this Is accomplished It will not
signify a change of heart in Russia so
much as respect for Jewish bankers In
England and Franco, who have it in
thoir power to make It easy or hard for
the Russian oxchequer to handle some
already, frenzied finance.
Tho spectacle of an Indicted Magis
trate holding court and sitting as a min
ister of Justice, is nauseating enough, but
far worse things have characterized the
administration of law as practiced in
these tribunals. They have been a scan
dal and reproach to the community for
years and should have been uprooted
long ago. Thoy ore doomed to a cer
tainty, for never again will they escape
tho publicity, which la suro to extin
guish them.
Thero Is more loose thinking and
loose talking about compulsory arbitra
tion In labor disputes than about any
other phase of tho labor question. One
does not have to think -very far into the
subject before one discovers that it is im
possible to enforce an arbitration award
unless there bs some body on which it
can be enforced. A railroad corporation
Is amenable to the law and court decrees
can be executed against it. But how
about a labor organization? Tho labor
leaders have resisted all efforts of indus
trial reformers to bring about their incor
poration. It is commonly supposed they
objected because they wanted to be im
mune to the court processes. The hatters'
union was found guilty of violation of the
Sherman law, but the individual members
were punished and not tho uplon. This
has been denounced as on outrage from
one end of the country to tho other. At
present on award where arbitration was
by compulsion could be enforced only
upon the Individual workmen, and if a
man refused to work under the award
there Is no principle of law which could
be Invoked to compel him to do so against
bis will. Compulsion would not amount
to much after all.
The "politics" In the long postpone
ment of the allied drive on the Salontca
front has been suspected for some time,
and now seems to have consisted In wait
ing till the time was rlpo for Rumania's
"Jump." The chief advantage. Is not Jn
the bal million men Rumania would con
tribute, but In the fact that her soil would
bo open to as many more Russians for
the extension of the pressure on Hun
gary south, from Bukowlna. Rumania
is Xrshaped, and the southeastern corner
of Hungary fits into the angle of the Z,
all the way around to where the Danube
forma tho northern boundary of Serbia,
It ia not likely that the Russians would
invada Hungary through Rumania, be
cause the Transylvanlaa Alps -form a
great natural defensa for Hungary, are
not to be easily ccsltd and ore penetrated
by only two easily defended passes. It Is
more likely that they would march along
tho Rumanian aids of tho mountains to
where; the range ends at the Danube, and
would cut the Wish railroad, which unites
Bulgaria with her Teutonic allies. Thai
would Bulgaria and Turkey be cut off
and tha way opened for eliminating
thia. Tfco objective of the campaig93
would thus ba a uniting of the Allied
ftAyaaatnx from EaIoaIca with the Busa-
U AJM -H ft, ftswitv-U Urefc yro i
portion to the ballet that the Salonica
armies are at least an von match for
the Bulgarians. Having waited so long,
It was not likely that sha would jump
except for a "sure thing." Equally self
seeking, the Bulgars are not likely to hold
out a moment after it is plain that thoy
have nothing to gain by continuing the
struggle. Their withdrawal would mean
a terrible pressure 'upon Austria-Hungary,
from tho south.
OUR friends the enemy nro not pleased
with the way Mr. Hughes Is conduct
ing his August campaign. This indi
cates that ho Is successful. It Is the
enemies ho makes that will elect him.
Tho country Is likely to discover before
the campaign Is many weeks older that
Mr. Hughes knows what he Is about The
Democratic organs which havo been ask
ing what has becomo of tho Hughes of
1908 aro likely to find out that he Is on tho
Job, if they havo not already begun to
regret that they were so hasty in their
mlsjudgment of the Republican candidate.
Mr. Hughes, who hod been personally
out of tho publlo cyo for several years
until ho was forced from his privacy by
the demand of the Chicago convention, Is
Just now getting in closo touch with his
countrymon and combating tho notion,
assiduously cultivated by his opponents,
that ho is an iceberg. Ho is lntonsoly
human, and tho country is discovering
it to Its delight.
But more 'important than this demon
stration of his humanity, ho Is leading
tho country up to tho great lssuo of tho
campaign in ouch a way that It will bo
Impossible- for any ono to chargo that he
has forced attention upon a subject to
which tho peoplo wore indifferent. If this
Is not political strategy of tho highest
kind there would bo less Democratlo dis
satisfaction with it.
Tho lssuo Is industrial preparedness for
tho trade crisis which will bo precipitated
by tho closo of tho war. It Is protec
tion of American workingmen and manu
fncturers against tho ruinous competi
tion of nations which will wage a trade
war as feverishly as they havo been wag
ing war with explosives. Mr. Hughes
has talked about many things, but in
virtually every speech ho has demanded
on American tariff policy. What has boon
tho result? Newspapers and business
men in all parts of tho country aro de
manding that he say less about other
matters and more about tho tariff. Tho
other matters aro interesting, but the
general opinion Is that thoy are of
much less lmportanco than tho protection
of American Industry and tho defeat of
tho party which through its leaders Is
committed to the policy of putting Ameri
can business on tho defensive, and that
It is a waste of tlmo to discuss them.
If this is not what Mr. Hughes in
tended should happen, then we mlstako
tho purposes of one of tho shrewdest
lawyers which this country has pro
duced. Tho tariff lssuo Is forcing itself
to tho front by tho demand of the nation
after the Democracy had boasted that it
had settled it fa. all tlmo by its repeal
of tho Payne-Aldrich'law.
Tho war has acted aa a wall of protec
tion, but that wall will topple over In a
few months, and the flood of foreign goods
will pour in unless something Is done to
prevent it. The Democrats are opposed
to protection by tariff dutios. The Re
publicans Insist that no better device was
ever conceived for holding American mar
kets for American producers, and at the
same time for raising revenue. The
great mass of American voters are protec
tionists. They are calling on Mr. Hughes
to lead them in' the fight for American
economlo Independence, a call that has
been provoked as skillfully as Maro An
thony led tho Roman citizens in the play
to rise to avenge the murder of Caesar.
The protective policy has been mur
dered by professed patriots. It must bo
restored to life by men who havo wis
dom aa well aa patriotism, and foresight
aa well aa good intentions. The tariff
Is the issue, and Mr, Hughes is rapidly
assuming the rolo of Us protagonist.
THE plea of Chairman Gaffney, of
Councils'' Finance Commltteewthat the
heads of the departments refrain from
padding the budget ia not likely to pro
duce any effect. The man in charge of
each department seeks to get; all he can,
regardless of the needs of the other de
partments. He asks for more than he
expects, but not for more than he Is will
ing to spend, in the hope that ho can get
a little moro than he hod tho year before.
Unfortunately for the taxpayers, ho does
not carve hla budget to the bone and then
reduce it 10 per cent and decide to do
business with the economy and efficiency
necessary in private enterprises. He per
mits hla offloa to be filled with political
appointees who do not feel that they
havo to work for their salaries, and the
working men who own the small two
story homes have to pay. In their tax
blUa for all this waste.
It la within the power of the Finance
Committee to cut down the estimates to
reasonable figures. If Chairman Gaffney
would stand at the window of the Receiver
of Taxes and watch the hard-working
citizens count out their savinga he might
get a better understanding of where the
money cornea from that is wasted in ex
travagant and unbusinesslike conduct of
municipal affairs, and some realization of
hla moral responsibility might dawn upon
him. The Mayor himself waa a pcr man

Sicilian laborer told us this story:
ho says his mother told It to him when
ho was a child. It sounds like ono of
Grimm's tales, and Is undoubtedly very old
folklore. Wo shnll glvo honorable mention
to nny ono who can
find It In nny collec
tion of printed talcs.
"My mother told
mo that onco there
was a king who saw
a farmer working In
a Held nnd asked him
how much ho earned.
And the farmer said,
'Four carllnl a day.'
'What do you do with
your four carllnl?"
asked tho king, 'Ono
I cat, tho second I
put at Interest, tho
third I return and the fourth I throw
away.' This puzzled tho king, and ho asked
the farmer what ho meant. And tho farmer
" 'I buy my food with one, I feed my
children with tho second, and that is putting
money out at Interest. I feed my old
father with the third, and that Is paying
back what has been given mo. I glvo the
fourth to my wlfo, and giving her money
is throwing It away.'
" 'That's a good riddle,' said the king,
'and I must tell It to my friends. Promise
me that you won't tell nny ono tho answer
till you havo soon my face a hundred times.'
So tho peasant promised, and the king went
back to his palaco and asked them the
riddle. Nobody could nnswer, but ono re
membered seeing tho king talk to a peasant,
bo he went to tho peasant and naked htm
about It. But tho peasant said, 'I can't
tell you I promised tho king I wouldn't tell
tho answer till I had seen his face a hun
dred times.' 'Oh, that's easy,' said tho
king's friend, and ho took n hundred lire
out of his pocket, and every piece of money
had the king's face stamped on It.
"So tho peasant told tho king's friend the
nnswer to tho riddle, nnd tho king's friend
went back to the palace, and said to the
king. 'I can guess your riddle now,' and
ho did. Then the king got angry, and said,
v0u couldn't have guessed It that peasant

Why the Railroads Distrust the President's Offer to Help Them Get
an Increase in Freight Rates Moral Suasion
Urged as the Great Pacifier
This department ( fret to all reader) who
tolsh to express their oplnfonj on subjects of
current interest. It is an osen forum, and the
Evening Ledger assumes no responsiolllti for
ths views of Us correspondents. Letters must
bs signed by the nam and address of the
utitcr, not necessarilu for publication, out as a
guarantee of good faith.
To tho Editor of tho Evening Ledger:
Sir with your permission I will tell
"Sganarelle," who honored me by answer
ing my letter about tho President and the
railroads, why I think the President's offer
to use his Influence with the Interstate 'Com
merce Commission toward securing an In
crease in freight rates was pure bluff.
The President has told the railroad man
agers that thero aro railroads run on the
eight-hour basis nnd that they do not seem
to be. In any financial difficulties, nnd that
tho Insistence of the managers that they
could not pay the Increase In wages In
volved In the eight-hour day was made
without taking Into account any administra
tive economies and efficiencies. Here Is tho
milk In the cocoanut It Is evident that
the President believes that large sums
could be saved by administrative economies.
Mr. Brandols a few years ago put this Idea
afloat when he Bald that the railroads were
wasting $1,000,000 a day. The Interstate
Commerce Commission has adopted It and
has refused such Increase In freight rates
as was asked on the ground that the rail
roads were extravagantly managed. Tho
attitude of neither the President nor the
rate-making board la friendly to Increase
In rates. It Is hostile to the management
of the railroads. The assumption Is that
tho railroad men do not know their busl-".
ness. The railroad men, therefore, are Jus
tified in being suBpldoua of any promise
of help from the President contingent upon
convincing him that they are not extrava
gant and wasteful. "Sganarelle's" confi
dence In the President Is beautiful and
touching, but it Is less sophisticated than
the distrust which the railroad men feel.
Philadelphia, August 22. Q. W. D.
To tho Editor of tho Evening Ledger;
Sir A statement has recently appeared
in some of the newspapers that the neutral
nations of Europe are finding the war more
profitable from a financial standpoint than
is even our own country.
As this great European conflict, which
General Nelson A. Miles has characterized
as the "most unjustifiable and uncalled for
tragedy in human history," has now entered
well upon Its third year. Is it not time that
the neutral nations consider it from a moral
or humanitarian point of view, instead of.
from a financial or commercial standpoint,
and see what can be done in the Interests
of peace?.
We may say that in regard to this mat
ter we, as neutrals, are powerless Ijhat we
can neither compel nor persuaderThe war
ring nations to stop fighting. And while
this, to a "great extent, would hold true,
yet we are not wholly powerlesa Take,
for instance, our own nation, and even con
ceding that Germany has been the aggres
sor and responsible for the war, a matter
still in dispute; in the execution of Roger
Casement, regardless of all the appeals for
Germany harbors no plan of aggression
in the Americas, says von Jagow, And
there's a reason. Maoon Telegraph.
When Theodore RooBevelt and Josephua
Daniels Btump the State, Maine may rea
sonably expect Borne expert naval dlscusX

in a very responsible capacity, Washington
Congress U a slow-moving body, Our
governmental system Ja not suited to quick
decisions-and action. If Congress does not
act now it will probably ba too late to put
up the bars against a flood of goods shipped
here in vast quantities to wipe out real in
fant Industries and to' control our markets
absolutely, It would be useless to put up
the bars after a three years' supply of such
ayestuffs and chemicals haa been entered
and warehoused in the United States, and
Germany can do that easily within 30 days'
after peace la declared. New York Com- t
clemency, nnd 15 other Irlqh patriots, Eng
land has shown herself to bo qulto as
capable In tho committing of ntrocltles as
hns Germany. And, furthermore, Germany,
probably realizing the error of her ways,
has expressed a willingness to consider
proposals for peace.
Such then being tho case, wo can ask the
Allies why they are still persisting In fight
ing so furiously? And If their object Is to
completely crush and annihilate Germany
a proposition which no civilized neutral
coul'd or should Banctlon without protest
wo can withdraw not only the moral sup
port we havo been giving them, but the
material In furnishing munitions and money
as well. This would go far toward tho es
tablishment of peace For without even
Hie moral support of tho neutral world
given to any of tho belligerent nations it is
moro than probable that erelong they
would see the result of their folly and stop
fighting of their own accord.
WhaJ; If our own and other neutral na
tions do become fabulously rich through this
flerco struggle. Whore will the money
eventually come from? Not alone from the
palaces or the crowned heads of Europe,
but from tho burdens of taxation placed
upon a peoplo among whom and In which
the poorest and the most humble will bo
called upon to do their part
Among the lessons this war Is most em
phatically teaching us are that war still
Is war, the same as ever, only that through
man's inventive ingenuity it ha3 become
moro destructive, and, if possible, more
atrocious. That there Is no such thing as
civilized warfare. And that no man nor
body of men can formulate rules nf war
"In conformity with the laws of civilization.
for the two are incompatible and utterly
irreconcilable. E. II. W.

To the Editor of the Evening Ledger:
Sir If the Russian Duma removes tho
disabilities of Russian Jews, will it not be
necessary for the Russian Government to
admit American Jews to Russia on tho
same terms that "they admit Americans of
other origins? Then will It not be easy
to renew the treaty with Russia, which was
abrogated through the efforts of "Plain Bill"
Sulzer when he was a Congressman? And
If It la renewed, would It not be a fitting
and gracious act for Mr. Wilson to send
Sulzer as Ambassador to Russia, even
though he la not now a deserving Demo
crat and made -no contribution to the Wil
son campaign fund In 1912?

The Panama Canal
IC M. D. On November 18, 1903, a
treaty between the United States and Pan
ama was signed, providing facilities for
the construction and maintenance of tho
Panama Canal. In this treaty Panama
granted In perpetuity the uso of a zone
five miles wide on each side of the canal
route, and inreturn for this and other
grants (police. Judicial, sanitary, political,
eta) the United States paid $10,000,000
on tho ratification of the treaty, with a
provision to pay J260.000 yearly, beginning
after nine years. Tho canal was formally
opened August 15, 1914, after about 10
years of effort. The cost waa about $320 -000,000,
including J20.000.000 for sanita
tion and J7.000.000 for civil administration
Counting the J50,000,000 paid to the New
French Canal Company and to Panama,
the total expenditure exceeds $375,000,000.
