There Is No Escape From Retribution HnnuiL'l Instil! scums tn have liikcn un most of the jisjN-cts of n will-ii'-lliu- wisp. On this side of Uio Atlantic, black headlines tell the: latest news of liij wamloriiiBs; <>n Uic olliur side lie" Hits About the liurilers luimuluss mid restless, a fuKilivu hurried liy SOIIH; compulsion whose roots x<> deeply into subsoil of the land that lie has disowned. Of iill the stniiiKi: liyures of llicse IcniTMiiiUiuus yeiirs, lliis .self-exiled utilities .juggler surely is one of the strangest. • He climbed liitfli und he fell a long way; and although retribution seems unite nimble to overtake him, no one need imagine that his tortuous flight is enabling him to escape anything. * ? * Consider what 1m had a few years ago. He WIIH rich beyond dreams and powerful beyond liny iiiau'-s need. He was an imluslrialist, a ruiiintii!! 1 , u patron of the arts. If tin ambitious broker's clerk had dreamed a wildly extravagant dreiim of worldly greatness, it, would not have come up to Hie reality which was Siinmel Insnll's. Everything that cleverness and acquisitiveness and ruthless energy could get for a man, in a bind where those 'qualities were ullowcil to Auction unchecked, he had won. All this he luwl, and all of it has dissolved like the mists of yesterday morning. His principality has shrunk to a rusty Greek freight steamer; his dominion, extends to her bridge, but no farther. * * * The ship wallows across the eastern seas bound for Abyssinia, or for Persia, or perhaps for Somaliland—it does not mattei', for Instil! really is hunting :i port not to be found on any chart, a place of refuge that this life with its imperfections, never will open to him again. It makc|, indeed, very little difference whether the man ever actually is collared and brought back to America. He carries his own punishment him; an unquiet shade that must stand eternally at his elbow and remind him of tlio kingdom that he lost, the reputation that lie dcFlroved. How can a man run awav from a OUT OUR WAY 1 KNuW THLKh l ;' VOU GOT ' WftS SOMETHIM'j THA' r OOWM . I FORGOT TO [ HERt-WHY.' txpiAiM TO vou, 1 RIGHT HERE BUT I DIDN'T j 17 15. VOU THINK OF IT (I ,iuST GO \ TILL llfjCn; CUEAKl RIGHT AHfAD \ OVER TO TH'CLUB.! AMD E thing like that? Instill call not; no man can. He can dodge from one out-of- the-way seaport to another to. the eial of time. 11 does not matter. Retribution caught up with him a long time ago. •—Mrure Calton. Only Part Way 't'he Vinson-'ri'iimmt'll navy hill, au- thori/ing conslniclion of 10^! warships and It'll) airplanes for Hie Unite:! States navy during Ihe next five years, is now u law, passed hy Congress and signed hy the president. Hut it is \vorili noticing that the law does nut actually commit the country to immediate construction of these armaments. As President Roosevelt pointed out in signing the bill, what we have here is simply a formal statement of policy. Congress anil the executive have gone on record us favoring the Imilding up of the navy to the strength authorized hy the treaties to which Ihc United States is \\ party. However, the bill appropriates no money I'm! this work. Not one keel will bo Initl down as a re.-ull of it. Thciv is a vast difference between ships author- i/.ed and ships appropriated for. Until this hill is supplemented by an actual appropriation measure, it is a gesture and nothing more. The Boss Goes On When New York City voters booted Tammany Hall out of control last fall,, il. was taken for granted thai a move- menl was beginning in the nation which would replace old-limy political bosses everywhere with reform administrations. Apparently (lib supposition was a gross over-estimate. Kansas City, for instance, indulged in a hot campaign, held a somewhat riotous election—and Tom I'eiidergasl, Democratic boss, still rules the roost. The Fusion ticket (hat was r;ii.-ed against him went, down to a decisive tie tent. • The light against hossism in the United jStates has hardly more than begun. When an outfit like the I'eii- dergasl machine can win out over a well-financed and ably-led reform campaign, it is evident that the average citix.en has not yd. awakened lo the importance of a hon-ei-leaning in municipal politics.
