REDUCTION OF U. S. STEEL DIVIDEND
Much as it is regretted that the holders of the
common stock of the United States Steel Corpora
tion —including many persons of moderate means
scattered through the entire country, among them
many of the gigantic eorporation's employes who
have been induced to buy the stock through the
operation of the corporation's profit-sharing plan—
are to suffer reduced incomes as the result of the
action of the directors yesterday in lowering the
quarterly dividend, the course of the directors in
this connection can be regarded as the only safe
and businesslike one that they could have pursued
in view of the statement of earnings for the quarter
ended "September 30. last, and the fact that there
is little prospect of earnings increasing in the im
The directors reduced the dividend for the quar
ter from li/i per cent, to one-half of 1 per cent.
That is the dividend is reduced to the basis of 2
per cent, a year as compared with 5 per cent, a
year, the rate that had prevailed since June, 1910.
After payment of the dividend at the lower rate
there will be left out of the earnings for the last
quarter an insignificant surplus of $89,479. If the
dividend had been declared at the previously pre
vailing 5 per cent, annual rate there would have
been a deficit for the quarter of something like
Although there doubtless were some stockhold
ers who had hoped that the dividend would be paid
at the old rate by utilizing accumulated surplus
Held over from other more profitable quarters, the
decision not to draw on this surplus was the wiser
one. Jt is a dangerous policy for a corporation to
pay out in the form of dividends for a given period
more than it has actually earned in that period.
Such a policy reduces surplus reserve and just to
that extent weakens the intrinsic value of the stock.
As Chairman Gary said, in explaining the actiQn
of the directors, the reduction of the dividend was
made "necessary by th.e present condition of the
business and the prospect for the immediate fu
ture." It is known that conditions in the steel
trade are perhaps just now than in any other
line of industry, due largely to the war in Europe.
In view of this it is far better business to conserve
surplus than to pay it out in the form of unearned
dividends, and the Steel Corporation directors can
not justly be criticised for the stand they have
taken in this matter.
The Corporation will be deserving of the most
severe criticism, however, if the present investiga
tion of its affairs being made by the Federal au
thorities establishes that the company is heavily
overcapitalized. Criticism, and punishment too,
will be well merited for the directors responsible
if it is shown that the common stock has been wat
ered to an extent which prohibits the payment now
or at any other time of the same dividend that
could have been paid had the capitalization been
limited to the intrinsic value of the property it is
supposed to represent.
FEWER GRADES IN LOCAL SCHOOLS
A committee of the Harrisburg School Board will
to-morrow consider a recommendation earnestly
made by Superintendent Frederick E. bownes, —
not for the first time,—that the number of grades
below the high schools in this city be reduced from
nine to eight. Dr. Downes has made this recom
mendation repeatedly in his annual reports and thus
lar it has been unheeded. He has now urged that,
the matter be referred to committee and that it

receive particular attention. The School Board
should adopt the recommendation without further
delay, so that Harrisburg schools may no longer
handicap their boys aud girls by putting them
through ah elementary course longer by one year
than that of any other city in Pennsylvania.
The United States Bureau of Education recog
nizes eight years as the standard length of element
ary courses in the public schools of the country, j
The branches of study have been so arranged Jn i
almost all American cities as to allow eight years for ;
primary and grammar school work and four years |
for high school training. Harrisburg's accepted!
ideas of education are modern enough and practical |
enough to include four-year high school courses,—
with a splendid variety of optious,—but they have
not yet provided for a standard eight-year ele
mentary course. The ninth grade has no place in
a present-day system of education. It must be elim
inated in this city as it has been in others.
True, there are now but eight grades below first
year high school for boys and girls of the city who !
make high marks and care to finish their grammar
school work in the lesser length of time. The excep
tional pupils, whose qifiekness in their studies has
earned them high averages, have the option of doing
eighth and ninth grade work in one year. Those
who decide upon the short cut to high school, how
ever, must apply themselves diligently during the
year, forced as they are to do surplus work which
an improper gradation in the lower schools causes
to accumulate at the closing of the grammar school
The great disadvantage of the present provisional
arrangement is that boys aud girls who are not so
fortunate as to be exceptionally "bright" are com
pelled to spend an extra year between their ele
mentary and high school courses, as compared with
children in other cities, —a year of their lives which,
iu a sense, is lost never to be regained.
There is 110 logical reason why there should be
nine grades in the schools of this city or of any
other. The only possible reason for the present ar
rangment is the mere fact that the nine-grade plan
has been in force. The primary school of three or
four years was extended, grade by grade, to nine
years before the high school was made part of the
public school system. Conditions arc now such tliat
not a longer but a shorter course is needed. Average
pupils are expected in the present day to be gradu
ated from high schools with a total of twelve years
ol work to their credit. Harrisburg graduates,
under the present arrangements in the elementary
schools, have of necessity spent thirteen years in
school rooms of the city.
Taxpayers of Harrisburg may suppose that the
matter of eliminating the ninth grade from the pub
lic schools involves no financial considerations, —
that a mere change in the elementary course has no
economic importance. On the contrary, the amount
of money at stake is far greater than that which
would be required to put up the badly needed new
high school building. The expense to the school dis
trict of retaining hundreds of children each year
in an unnecessary ninth grade, is not a small item;
and the cash value of the lost time, particularly to
the boys, is immeasurable. There would certainly
be no false econqmv in the elimination of the ninth
grade, with the proper readjustment of the ele
mentary course of studies.

properly the name of the evangelist

Waded to the Football Game

at the entrance to the grounds, the

the water's edge to get past the gate.
He intercepted them and then told them
they might as well go back, as he could
stay there longer than tliey could. All

youths, who peeled off shoes and stock-

j of the boys shouted:
"Aw, officer, have a heart."
The policeman weakened and, think
ing that they deserved to get past, he

WRITES ABOUT GAME LAWS
5. H. Uarland Takes laxue With Dr.
KallifuN on Simp INtini^i
Editor the Star-Independent;
Dear Sir—l hold in my hand a copy
of tile Star-lndopoiident of Thursday,
October 22, the issue that contains an
article entitled "Kalbfus Defends Ward
ens," in which the secretary of the
Game Commission points out tlie pur
pose of the law requiring licensed
hunters to wear tags, also placing the
blame for the tags on the shoulders of
Mr. Creasy, candidate for lieutenant
governor on the Democratic ticket. A
short review of the history of this bill
may refreshen the secretary's memory
as well as enlighten the public on this
In the month of January, 1911, Dr.
Kal'bfus visited the Hunters and An
glers' Protective Association, in their
hall, corner Fifth and Peffcr streets.
After delivering an address he handed
out a number of pamphlets, in which
the passage of a residents' hunters'
license law by the 1911 Legislature was
urged. This pamphlet bore the names
of all members of the Game Commis
sion, including that of the secretary.
In the Legislature of 1907 a bill simi
lar to the one urged in the pamphlet
was defeated, largely by the vote of
the country members; a suggestion had
been made that if the farmer was ex
empt from the provisions of the bill he
might be won over. The pamphlet en
deavored to show that such a provision
was unconstitutional, and would destroy
the very fabric on which game protec
tion was built; namely, that wild game
belongs to all the people and for this
reason such a concession could not be
given to any class of the people.
The bill introduced in the Legisla
ture of 1911 excluded no one from its
provisions, even requiring a license to
carry a gun on the highways of the
state. At the public hearing before the
house committee on game the latter
clause was pointed out by a farmer
meiruber. who supported Ills argument
by stating if a neighbor farmer was
called on to assist in the annual hog
butchering and brought his gun along
to kill the hogs, he was liable to ar
rest. The objectionable clause was
stricken out, and the first concession
was made to the farmer. The commit
tee, however, promptly defeated the
bill. Its friends brought it up in the
senate, with a second concession to the
farmer, by providing that a farmer cul
tivating ten or more acres would be
exempt from the provisions of the law:
and thus did the Game Commission and
their friends reverse themselves and
pass up their argument in the pamph
let that such a concession would destroy
the very fabric on which game protec
tion was built, but the farmer could
not be caught by this little bit of
sweetening and the measure was de
feated in the senate.
The bill was again introduced in the
house in the 1913 session of the Legis
lature. The constituency of the coun
try members had cautioned their repre
sentatives to move slow, and more con
cessions were asked. Accordingly the
words "ten acres" were stricken out,
thus allowing any one living on and
cultivating land to hunt without a
license; also allowing him to hunt on
his neighbors' land with his consent.
By this concession hundreds were ex
empt from the provisions of the hill.
A fourth concession was made by pro
viding one-half the revenue derived

from tlie measure should be used for
paytng bounties on obnoxious birds and
.animals, thus giving the termer's boy
an opportunity to earn a dollar or two
during the winter.
Still the bill was not satisfactory;
then came tlie tag. The committee on
game had given a public healing. it
was evident tlie friends of the measure
had not made much headway. Mr. J.
B. fansom, of Pittsburgh, editor of a
pamphlet founded by a member of the
Game Commission, having in mind the
dog law. made the suggestion of a num
bered tag that could be used as an
identification mark. Farmer Weimer,
of Lebanon, and Farmer Surface, of
Harrisburg, the only farmers present,
at once endorsed it, and in this form,
with the assistance of the Harrisburg
member on the committee, it was sent
to the floor of the House. Its stormy
reception and defeat on third reading
by the House of Representatives; its
recall to the calendar and passage
under the whip of the Governor and
the gang, are matters of history.
The secretary seems to have forgot
ten that in 1913 he issued hundreds of
receipts on which men hunted the en
Section 4 of this act state that upon
the payment of one dollar to the county
treasurer by a person qualified he is
entitled to a resident hunter's license
and tag. On the strength of this c lause,
we presume, the secretary acted Ui
1913. There is nothing here that gives
one official more power than another.
The same section provides for the Game
Commission to furnisli blanks to the
county treasurer and the county treas
urer to furnish blanks to the justices
of the peace. If any official has been
neglecting this duty he is responsible
and not the hunter who has complied
with the law.
We have also searched this measure
in vain to find where it permits the
department to delay the Issuing of
licenses and tags until the first of Sep
tember and later. The license is mark
ed "good for 1914." The laws of Penn
sylvania permits hunting of gattie of
one kind and another the greater part
of nine months in the year. Tlie na
tional migratory bird law would reduce
this to three months in the year.
The secretary of the Game Commis
sion, Dr. Kalbfus. told tlie writer and
a friend that he had advised the IT. S.
officials who have the enforcement of
this law in charge, that the game
wardens in Pennsylvania were forbid
den to take any part in the enforce
ment of this law and that the depart
ment would sustain him in this posi
This would seem to imply that inso
far as the state was concerned, hunters
may hunt the nine months of the year.
Therefore, since the state alone is In
terested in tlie issuing of licenses, the
department can have no excuse for
withholding licenses until a few weeks
of the open season for upland game.
The local cases of violations of the
license laws that have brought out tills
correspondence smack of too much of
persecution rather than game protec
tion, and cannot be excused bv a lot of
generalities. Very truly,
