Fight It Out.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT that
President Itooseveltwlll press
the nomination of Captain
Crozler to the chieftaincy of
the ordnance bureau to a tlnlsli In the
senate, requiring the members of that
august body who are averse to this ap
pointment because it was not made ac
cording to seniority, to put themselves
on reeord is credible and satisfactory.
In view of the utter absence of other
reasons for the adverse repoit of the
military affairs committee on Captain
Crozier's nomination, the conclusion is
forced that It represents mainly a fit of
old fogylsm such as Is trying to defeat
the wide-reaching plans of army reor
ganization devised and urged by Secre
It was, of cour.li, not to be expected
that a project so eoinrJVehensive and
revolutionary as the modernizing of the
army In accordance with the lessons ot
the Spanish-American war could be
sarrled through without opposition. En
trenched abuses are always the hardest
to remove. Especially is it true that
the old senatois are hard to wean from
traditions hallowed by years of observ
ance and fortified in long acquaintance
with staff ofllcials grown ossified in
routine. Nevertheless the battle is one
which has to be fought to a conclusion,
and wo can think of no president better
qualified to fight it than the former
colonel of the Hough Hitlers, who can
testify from personal knowledge to the
inadequacy of the present staff system.
To win requires simply a big supply
of moral courage and perseverance, and
the present administration has plenty
of both. The country wants a lighting
arm of the highest possible efllciency,
so organized that never again will there
come into view such a paralysis of ex
panding poweis as characterized the
first sixty days of the war with Spain.
The fact that we won that war covers
a multitude of shortcomings; but it is
not statesmanship to depend for mili
tary efllciency wholly upon the possl-
uuuy mat your opponents may bo
weaker than yourself. The commonest
gratitude to those who offer to lay down
their lives if need be in the defense of
'their country calls for the most efficient
ot possible organizations of the armies
in which they enlist. Let tho Issue be
pressed. It is bound to win.
President lloosevelt has offered to

N" THE current number of the
North American Review Robert
li. Cutting presents nn extremely

points and consequences Involved. Ho

litigation hns arisen In recent yeais
than this attempt to ascertain If tinder

the securities of a new corporation In

of the two roads Is nominally unchang

made one as if one had bought the
other. Now the Sherman act declares
Illegal and provides for the quashing
ot "every contract, combination In the

It further says that "every person (In

sults will accrue to shippers and pub
lic tluough the introduction of wise
economics, the uniform development of
properties and the avoidance of dupli
cations. That those who argue In this
vein are sincere need not be doubted.
A management dominated by J. Pler
pont Morgan would be likely to be far
sighted enough to study the public's
Interest as well as its own. But that
is not the point In question. The point
to be determined first Is whether such
mergings are lawful, ir It be found
that they aie not, it will be In order to
offer arguments for the modification of
the Sherman law so as to permit thein

doubt that Intelligent public opinion
would re.-pond to convincing appeal
