SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 13, 1930 A NEW MEANING FOR THE FOURTH The Republic of Peru, according to Information officially communicated to Secretary Stimson, has designated the Fourth of July as a legal holiday in that country. The action of the South American government was interpreted both at home, and in the United States as a gesture of friendship toward the great republic of North America, which has long celebrated Independence Day as the date of its birth as a nation. In taking this action, however, the president of Peru has indicated his conviction that the Fourth should have a wider significance than America has heretofore accorded the date. In a very true sense it may be considered as not merely the birthday of a great nation, but as the birth date of modern democracy. It is from that motive, apparently, that Peru has acted. Notwithstanding the importance of the influence of the French Revolution in t,he development of modern democracy, $s birth-throes came after the United States of America had undertaken to throw off the yoke of British monarchy, and therefore July 4, 1776, takes precedence in time over any of the historic dates connected with the French movement toward democracy. Furthermore, while the French Revolution overthrew the divine right of monarchy, it was not s, permanent achievement there have been lapses back into the monarchial system at various times since the Revolution. Thus July 4 stands as the birthday of modern democracy by virtue of being the birthday of the oldest, as well as the greatest, of modern republics. America will, of course, courteously acknowledge this graceful .act of. Peru, and there is apparently no reason why sentiment in the United States should not heartily recognize and approve the new meaning given by the president of the little Southern neighbor to the "glorious Fourth." UP AND DOWN BUT EVER UP! Production, and consumption, of electrical energy has come to be one of the basic indeces of the state of economic activity and, wejfare of the country. The country is today producing just slightly less electric energy than it was a year ago, according to reports received from its member companies by the National Electric Light association. The decrease for the entire country was 1.7 per cent as compared with the corresponding time of last year. Far more significant, however, is the statement showing that the current year's records are ten per cent in excess of 1923. Too much pessimism is engendered by comparisons of our various economic indices with certain periods of last year. It looks much better to compare with 1928, which was itself a year of unusually good industrial and commercial records. We overshot the mark quite a bit for a part of last year with activities of all sorts considerably above normal. Over a period of years, the nation's business grows greater. Owing to the very human elements in the' equation, however, it does not grow at a steady and constant pace. Somebody has remarked that business goes forward for two years and then drops into a .recession for one year. Excesses bring reactions, but the long-term trend is up. A few years from now, undoubtedly, the nation's productive processes will be carrying on at a pace' that will be considerably in excess of the 1929 records, yet perhaps not more that "normal" at that.

THE PINCH OF TAXES Recent announcements indicating a more liberal policy on the part of the Interstate Commerce- Commission as to various classes of railroad freight rates have been of considerable cheer to certain roads in the northeast and northwest, which see prospects of improved earnings. By the same token, however, the shippers of freight, and ultimately the consumers of all sorts of goods, will have to pay a little higher toll for the essential service of transportation. It is interesting to note that in no year recently have the Class 1 railroads of the country taken as a whole, earned a return on their property investment of as high as five per cent, for the twelve-month period. In 1926, the return was 4.98 per cent, and in 1929, 4.95 per cent. For the first five months of this year the return has been equivalent to 3.68 per cent. It is also of interest to note that taxes of all kinds .levied against railroads run to a large percentage of their net operating income. For the five months ending in May, in 1929, taxes amounted to $162,544,885 while net operating income was $457,017,242, or less than three times as much as taxes: With the decline in railway business during the similar period of this year to the point where net operating income was only $307,659,-543, taxes declined only slightly to $149,- 690,335, or approximately one half of the net income. One can hardly help but reach the con clusion that taxes upon railroads, which have been steadily increasing in recent years, are an important factor in providing the basis for permission to in crease freight rates. The situation is demonstration of the fact that in piling additional taxes upon utilities and private business of various sorts, we can not go beyond a reasonable point without bringing the tax back upon our own pocketbookS. The railroads and other utilities are given the right to increase rates when it becomes necessary to maintain a fair profit, but it eventually works out the same way with private business, for those who do not get a sufficient return to make a profit must eventually go out of business. It is generally considered by economists the taxes upon net income are not "passed on" to the consumer in the form of higher prices. Yet when these taxes are unreasonably high, they undoubtedly take away surplus funds that would otherwise be used in expansion of productive activities, providing greater em ployment and greater general purchasing power. Excessive or unreasonably burdensome taxes, even if levied in accordance with equitable principles have un wholesome and unfavorable economic results that affect the individual prosperity of nearly every one of us. The importance, from the standpoint of general economic welfare, of keeping gov ernmental expenditure down to minimum figures should be more generally appreciated. CHEATING THE DEATH PENALTY Governor John G. Richards recently had the unpleasant duty of facing insistent appeals that he exercise the power of clemency with which his office is vested, and commute to life imprisonment the sentence of death imposed upon two voting men convicted of murder in the first degree. The Governor refused to interfere with the sentence of the court, but he had no way of avoiding the harrowing experience of hearing the appeals and making his decision. The problem faced by Governor Richards was simpler, however, than the one presented to the authorities In Reval, Estonia, and still troubling them, according to dispatches from that city. They have the task of deciding whether or not a man sentenced to die has paid the penalty by taking the officially prescribed dose of poison, when the action of the"polson on his exceptionally strong stomach failed to produce death. Under Estonian law, it seems, a person condemned to die is given the privilege of choosing whether he will be hanged or will take the hemlock cup, in the Socratic fashion. If the poison route is chosen the legally prescribed dose is administered. In the case of one Serge Vasilanko, the poison failed to produce death, and after several weeks of suffering from its effects, the prisoner was able to leave his bed, and is said to be rapidly recovering. He claims that he has paid the penalty legally imposed by drinking the official draught, and that he is entitled to the benefits accruing from the fact that his stomach was of such unusual strength as to withstand the ravages of the poison. The authorities are hard put to decide whether or not the man should be set free as having submitted to the punishment officially prescribed. The story is an interesting one, though somewhat difficult to accept at fare value. Even in a comparatively backward country, like Estonia, It would seem that sentence of death could not be avoided on any such pretext. If the prisoner had chosen hanging,, and the noose proved inadequate, it would scarcely be argued that he had satisfied the law by submitting to an unsuccessful attempt to carry out the sentence. So, having chosen the poison method, he could hardly claim the benefit of unexpected failure in the application of the method. However, as in all cases of capital punishment, the Incident provokes speculation and comment upon the horror of the death penalty in any form. A MERITED REBUFF More "gold star" mothers have gone to Europe to view the graves of their sons, and the American War department Is put to the necessity of affirming officially that there has been no discrimination between white and negro mothers because of the fact that separate ships were utilized to convey members of different races. ' The department has been brought to this necessity, apparently, because of the vigorous efforts of the National Association for the Advancement of the Colored People to charge the government with discrimination. The Association has been very active in trying to make it appear that because there has been segregation of races in this transportation of "gold star" mothers, the negro race has been discriminated against, imposed upon and generally denied the rights of civil equality. It has become fairly clear that the protests that have been lodged against this segregation have been inspired and instigated by the Association. Certain of the negro gold star mothers made protest against the program, and it has been found that all of these protests were made on a blank form evidently supplied by the Association for the pur pose. It can hardly be believed that there is any real protest among colored gold star mothers because special ships have been provided for members of this race particularly since every convenience and comfort have been provided for them on a basis of strict parity with that pro vided for the white mothers. But the Association has sought to make political capital of it,' and to stir up a political squabble about it. Such activities do not help to promote friendly or harmonious relationships be tween the races, either politically or socially. Even the Association itself must be conceded to have intelligence enough to know that. And if it does know it the only explanation of certain activities in which it has recently been engaged is that it is seeking to achieve for its leaders certain political powers and prestige with the profession of helping the negro as a mere stepping stone to that end. It is quite significant that at the last convention of this organiza tion Mr. Hoover was conspicuous by the complete absence off any expression of formal greetings from the White House. The Association saw to it that his fail ure to send "greetings" received pub licity. It may have felt that this would help it to exercise a kind of political club on the chief executive. But when one considers the political activities of this organization during the last year or so, and their obvious motives and objectives the great majority of the citizens of this country can hardly help but conclude that the President has displayed excel1 lent judgment in administering this silent rebuff.' ANYTHING FOR AN ARGUMENT! "Much ado about nothing" might well be written as a description of the "row" between the President and the Senate over those "secret papers." The Senate adopted a resolution re questing the President to transmit these papers to' the Seriate, but in that resolution were the words, "if not incompatible with the public interest." Since the resolution, .was . directed, to the President, clearly he was the one to say whether or not the action was incompatible with the public interest. Mr. Hoover has so decided, and has so informed the Senate. And now Hi Johnson and others are devoting much oratorical energy to criticism of the President for doing exactly what the Senate's resolution asked him to do! But what . makes' these proceedings more ridiculous than ever is the acknowledged fact that any member of the Senate has the right to make complete examination of these "secret" documents. The only condition is that they shall not broadcast them to the world or make copious quotations from them in debate in other words, that, they shall regard them as confidential. If ther6 is anything in the "secret" documents that would give any senator any reason for feeling that he should not vote to ratify the treaty as it stands, it is certainly not being withheld from him. But the senators are making a great howl about Mr. Hoover's disinclination to have these papers spread before the world. That is about all there is to it. The country can hardly help but come to the conclusion that the hullabaloo is little more than a smoke screen just something to keep the argument running and delay the consideration of the treaty on its own merits. WHERE MARTYRDOM CEASES The state of Georgia has stepped into some national notice by what seems to be a threat to hang a few Communists. The state has a law, that dates back into ante-bellum days, whereby talk of overturning the government and other such sedition can be punished with death. A3 The Pathfinder comments, however, it is hardly likely that Georgia seriously contemplates an effort to exact the death penalty in these cases, as is indicated by the fact that the defendants have been released on bail for the summer. That may be Just Georgia's way of getting rid of these visitors, for if they Jump bail and do not return to face the possibility of the noose, the state will probably be just as well satisfied. These Communists are great for martyrdom, but for them there can probably be such a thing as too much martyrdom.

Pretty face alluring, Gay or comatose, She is Heaven smiling; Winsome Annie Rose. JOHN HARSEN RHOADES, (Author of Ramdom Thoughts of a Man at Fifty.) Anxious Moments! THE POOL OF PEACE We have come home; the gate sags on its hinges, The creepered chimneys, lift no smoky plumes; Here is my garden with the pool still hidden Within a tangled heart the dusk perfumes. Give me your hand, the silence fairly listens! Do you feel wings and hear a silvery sound Like whispering of little sleepy children Was that a shadow went across the ground? Wide velvet eyes of crowding pansies haunt, The larkspur may dissolve in soft blue mist, The rioting of roses on the sundial Makes jest of time with every loop and twist. Come read: "For me the lines have fallen, In pleasant places and I mark bright hours." But some are gray with pain and some are burnished Too bright to bear, too smothering with flowers. Our dreams are homing doves that carry branches Of rosemary and rue to brush our cheeks: Our eyes that have been focused to the shadow In pools of peace find stars and mountain peaks. ELIZABETH CASTLE, in New York Herald Tribune. OLD MOTHERS They draw me to them women who have grown Wise with the wisdom that right living brings: Old mothers who have suffered, and have known A triumph over many conquered things; Who have grown gentle, trusting day by day; Who have grown patient, serving through the years; Who, having prayed much, have learned how to pray; And weening, learned how futile, were their tears. They wear such certainty within their eyes A sureness that no questioning can shake; All is so clear to them they are so wise The way was made so plain that they should take If one should come to them, his faith erown dim. Their faith would light the fires anew in him. GRACE NOLL CROWELL, in Holland's. An Idea Or Two By GROVE PATTERSON For The Common Good Most of us get pretty tired of "reform" and reform organizations. We get tired or hearing so much about social service anc "uplift." There is no doubt we are organized up to the hilt and the world might well do without many professional "uplift" or reform organizations. But let's not let our prejudices and our weariness carry us too far in our opinions. Somebody or some few persons have to do an enormous amount of work to help a lot of people carry their burdens or the burdens won't be carried and the partly helpless will become entirely helpless. Facing the facts, the Boston Transcript asks this question: "What would happen In the United States if all forms of social work, public and private, were suddenly brought to a standstill?" Partly answering that question, the writer then tells us that "within forty-eight hours the streets of our large cities would be filled with persons In a pitiably serious plight. Where the heads of families were concerned, or in cases of invalidism, begging would become almost compulsory. Self-respect, hope, now preserved by contact with agencies studiously striving to preserve these vital qualities even while extending a helping hand in times of emergency, must often give way, in the absence of such guiding assistance, to bland despair. Beyond doubt the crime rate would rise promptly, and cases of disease, Including contagious disease, would quickly increase." Young Cynics Because they think it is smart, because they think they are wiser than the old folks, or because they wish to pose nobody knows Just why the average youngster with an education seems to be a cynic, He is strangely tired of the world. ' Nothing is quite right and he has quickly given up the Idea that things can be any better. Not being able to understand what life is all about, he bitterly concludes it hasn t anv mean ing at all. It doesn't occur to him that the trouble Is not with the universe but with himself. Cynicism Is not a mark of wisdom. It Is a mark of the lark of wisdom. Ago is better than youth be cause the experience of life has displaced guess work and Ignorance with at least a few realities. Fine ThreadsTo get the attention of men and women in this machine age we have to put the loud pedal on the "prin clnal." The world asks: Will it work? Will it last? Will it wear? What can I get out of It? And yet the day comes when we realize that the great realities of life are not the things that seem most practical and most valuable at the mo ment, The great realities are the ideals which make a man what he is. They are the fine threads of idealism which are woven Into the durable fabric of character. I I ' III' 1 'I l This World Of Ours Advice Sooner or later there comes a pay day.

Capper's Weekly. Huckleberries One of the interesting happenings In a marketing wav recenllv is the shipment of three cars of huckleberries the old fashioned hhiebrrrlps of the woods from Ridgeland These were gathered for ten cents a quart and shipped to northern markets where it Is understood the prices were entirely satisfactory. Thus it will be seen The Romans had a proverb, that men must change with the changing times. It applies to most of us but not to Coleman Livingstone Blease, United States senator from South Carolina, now seeking reelection against two opponents. Senator Blease remains the same old Coley. Speaking at Union on Monday he was at pains to prove this. They had a lynching at Union a few weeks ago and Mr. Blease apparently conceived the idea that Union would be a good place to launch forth into the advocacy of lynching. "Whenever the Constitution comes between me and the virtue of the white women of South Carolina. I say, 'To hell with the Constitution,' " he shouted, adding, "When I was goernor of South Carolina you didn't hear of me calling out the militia of the state to protect negro racists. In my South Carolina campaigns you heard me say, 'When you catch the brute that assault' a white woman, wait until the next morning to notify me." It will be observed that Senator Blease limited his endorsement of lynch law to the lynching of rapists. But every one knows that lvnching, where It Is practiced at all. is not restricted to rapists: that rapists in fact are only a percentage of those lvnched; and It is true further that the courts of South Carolina move more swiftly, more surely and with less publicity to punish rape than to punish any other crime. So this restriction on Senator Blease's part need not be taken very seriouslv. Bes'des. there was more behind this typical Blease tirade, it should be explained, than an effort to curry favor with the mob which participated in the lvnching at Union, where his soeech was delivered. In the first place, it is a fact that Governor John G. Richards, the present chief executive of South Carolina, has exerted himself to prevent lynch law and to bring those who have enraged in lvpch-lngs to punishment. Mr. Blease helped to elect Mr. Richards governor four vears ago, but it is un-derstcod that as governor Mr. Richards declined to let Mr. Blease run his administration for him nor is he supporting Mr. Blease for reelection. So. In his Union speech. Senator Bse was striking at Governor Richards, who is not. by the way. a candidate for any office at the present time. But that Is only a part of the storv. The main part is vet to come. One of the candidates opposing Mr. Blease for the United States senate is Solicitor ton W. FTarvK of Anderson. Mr. Harris. It Is stated, was absent from the campaign meetlncr at Union, "because of court business at Wnl-balla". Here is the true point of the matter: for the court business at Walhalla noon which Solicitor Ferris was ensrbicrf was the prosecution of seventeen persons In dicted for murder in connection with the midnight lynching of a negro last April. Solicitor Harris worked up the case against thesa persons and succeeded in getting true bills from the grand jury against them, notwithstanding one of them is the mayor of Walhalla and another the night policeman of the town. Thus it begins to appear that Senator Blease, in his speech at Union, was talking to a purpose. The reports from the Palmetto state are to the effect that Solicitor Harris has been making things very warm for Coley on the hustings. Mr. Harris was not very well known over the state when the campaign opened, while Senator Blease has canvassed it oftener than uny other man, living or dead. But Harris has been vigorous and apparently effective in attack and the onlookers have been saying that he had Senator Blease badly worried. It does look so. It looks, indeed, as if Mr. Blease is staking his hopes of reelection on the belief that there are more peop'e in South Carolina who are in favor of lynch law than there are in favor of the prosecution and conviction of lynchers. He may be right but we hope and believe that he has made a poor gues?. South Carolina has never had as ugly a lynching record as some of -.tie other Southern states and its record in recent years has shown fairly consistent improvement, although It has been rather badly marred this year. In the Walhalla lynching, however, the sheriff resisted the mob until he had himself been assaulted and his skull fractured; and the authorities, as noted, acted promptly and vigorously to reassert the majesty of the law. We know that they acted commendably. We think that they acted as the people of South Carolina would have had them act. ve believe that Senator Blease has made another bad guess, as he has made bad guesses before. That remains to be determined and we cannot tell how it will be determined until the election returns are available In August. The outside public will await those returns with larger Interest than would otherwise have been exercised because of the fresh revelation which Senator Blea-e ha just given to himself He has offered proof that he Is. as we have said, the same old Coley. This being the case, what about South Carolina? Are its people content to have him represent them In the United States Senate when they have the opportunity to send them lnrtead either former CoppressmnnV James F. Bvrpp.s, one nf the nmst capable men who has served !n the House of Representatives from the1"' South In the pnst twenty years, or Solicitor Harris, . whose, fearless performance of an unpleasant and dangerous d"tv challenges the general admiration? PASSING OF THE PASTORAL KISS ' By Dr. R, H. Bennett, President of Lander College A Virginia news column says that J X and Miss A y drove to the home of the Rev, Mr. to be married and after the ceremony the minister kissed the bride. The next instant X's fist shot out and caught the minister squarely in the jaw. laying him limp in the corner of the room. Friends seized the angry groom and explained to him that It was the custom with some ministers X was mollified and as a peace offering drew forth two ton dollar notes which he tendered to the dazed clergyman. This is the speediest cure vet advertised for the pastoral kiss. If our respected friends of the cloth will take the risk, and the temptation is sometimes great, they must envision dislocated Jaws and a limp pile of anftnmy In the corner of the room. The microbe scientists have long since broken up the program of politician and preacher to "kiss the babies". The germ theory of diseases puts the mother on guard to stop that. In fact some scientists are ready to prove that all kissing is poisonous, but there are still many pairs of bold souls who are willing to take the risk and die together. Some drastic reformers will sav that the groom's only mistake was In the tender of the twenty dollars. And the brides? What will they think? Ah, who ran fathom a woman's thought? That bungling creature man has been vainly trying it through the rkcs. On the whole, reverend sirs of the clergy. It is a perilous habit A bridegroom's knuckles are hard and his biceps mlghtv and twenty dollar apologv mav not follow every time one finds hiipvlf "limp In the corner of the ronm." But, as it was a Virginia girl, wasn't It worth It? that there Is money to be made by the enterprising In all lines of business. One fine thing In connection with this industry la that It thrives only where the forests are protected from the annual fires which people In many sections seem to think essential. Walterboro Press and Standard. Female Of The Specie Two young white women were convicted In police court In Charlotte on charge of driving while under the Influence of whisky. In one case the driver neglected the stop lleht signals and in the other, the driver crashed Into another machine, according to the news col umns of the Charlotte Observer. The article adds "Veteran police officers said that only three other t white women ever had been In the city recorder's court facing the same charge." That was record enough to run up for one day. In each case a stiff fine was imposed and also six months sentence in jail, the latter suspended on condition that the defentlrtnt does not operate an automobile fcr one year. The drunken male driver Is' sufficient menace to any highway, but If the women begin falling Into that custom, something will have to bs done, effectively and speedily, to make the streets and roads safe for travel and for human life.
