MARYLAND MUSINGS By The Bentztown Bahd. In Greenwood. In gentle Greenwood Gaynor lies, Gibraltered in a world of lies On Honesty, the warrior true To life as stars amid the blue; services and special laws to govern their conduct, and with prophets and priests to continually guide their actions; yet all these gracious provisions were not sufficient.

This experience of about 4,000 years would show that man under the law, with every opportunity and advantage of position and surroundings and with ample time for development, bad no power to control conduct or form character acceptable to God. The ancient law rested on the argument of obligation that man ought and must do this or that, and this principle has always commended Itself to the natural man as the strongest motive of right conduct. But danger point. If the raising of the Austrian flag means that Essad is backed by Austria, with Germany and Italy behind it, the Triple Allianca will be brought face to face with the Triple Entente. Russia, France and England cannot be expected to allow Austria such an advantage.

BRIEFS FROM THE VIRGINIAS. Lancaster, Va. The menhaden fish guano factories in this section for the last two weeks have been doing very slender business. The weather has been unfavorable and but few fertilizer fish have been caught. The majority of the factories havo been running on short time and with reduced forces.

A Correspondent Whose Experience Is Exceptional Conditions Of Employment In Baltimore Are Favorable To The Person Employed, When Cost Of Living Is Compared To Cost In Other Cities. To this Editor of Thh Sck Sir: In answer to an article in today's Scn as to the cause of labor shortage, I would like you to print the following answer It is not the increase of business or lack of labor to be had in general so much as it is the miserable wages being paid in this city that creates this condition. For every man, single or married, if he sees advertisements from other cities offering much better wages is not going to stay in Baltimore and work for $10 or $12 a week, which seems to be considered a fine wage here, while in Philadelphia or in New York he could get from $18 to $20 a week for exactly the same kind of work. I am not a Vorker for labor unions. On the contrary, I am dead against unionism for the simple reason that it is worked on an unjust basis, which I prove from my own experience.

But to substantiate my statement I will give my reason. In April of this year my husband answered an advertisement in the New York World (we then lived in New Jersey) and received an answer from a firm in this city, and, after agreeing to accept this position on a salary much less than he had been getting and on the assertion that living was much cheaper in Baltimore than anywhere else, he came here and I soon followed, as he liked the city. About three months after our arrival here this firm was put in the hands of a receiver and, of course, my husband was compelled to look elsewhere for a position. He had been superintendent in the first place and had had full charge of the plant. Of course, such a position is not to be had every day in the week, and ho made up his mind to take any position as a first-class mechanic in his line of business, being a graduate from the New York Trade School.

But, oh, my it would break a person's heart to think that manufacturers have the nerve to offer a first-class mechanic $12 to $14 a week on a 10-hour day, a thing that brings a man of ordinary ability $18 to $21 a week. As for cheaper living I lived just as cheaply where I came from as I can here, and my rent was only $10 a month. Now, I for myself have been trying to get a little something to do at home, but the prices offered are fierce one would not waste the time at it and make the manufacturer rich and then I have answered a lot of fake advertisements. Now, If the manufacturers will take it to heart and give their people an increase in wages and new hands an offer that will encourage their ambition instead of breaking their hearts at the thought of what they are going to do on this wage, they will soon find out that plenty of, and willing, help can be had at a good salary, for they will then stay here instead of goin'g somewhere else to get more wages. For instance, I saw an advertisement in Friday's Evening Sun which read "A middle-aged man wanted as timekeeper; must have unquestionable reference and give bond.

Salary $10 a week." Shouldn't a concern with any standing at all be ashamed to put such an advertisement in a paper? Or another: "An architectural draftsman wanted salary $12 a week," a position that will pay a man In New York from 32 cents to 40 cents an hour. Hoping that some of those bosses who complain of being short of help will take this to heart and consider it at their dessert Mas. M. N. Baltimore, Sept.

20. Appreciates The Courtesy Of Postmaster Swann, Dnt Rev. Mr. Zeig-ler Is Still Indigrnant Over The Delay Of Letters From Maryland Points. To the Editor of The Scn Sir: I 'quote below a letter received from the Baltimore Postoflice in reply to a complaint "Sir Referring to your complaint relative to delay in receipt of letter postmarked Clearsprlng, September 11, 10 A.

and which you report was received on the morning of the 18th Instant, I regret to advise you that after very careful investigation, and in the absence of any marks showing mistreatment, the precise cause of delay Is not demonstrable. The letter should have reached this office in time for delivery not later than the morning of the 12th idem, and it is regretted both that you should have been inconvenienced and that the personal responsibility cannot be definitely placed. Respectfully, "Sherlock Swanx, Postmaster." First I wish to acknowledge the courtesy with which all such complaints are treated by the officials, and the apparent interest taken to locate the error. But this is the second such reply in three months I have received to a like complaint. During which time I have received three other delayed letters, which I did not call to the attention of the office, as their reception on time was not important.

I submit, in light of the regret with which the letter of Mr. Swann closes, whether it would not be better, both for the protection of the patrons and to insure the careful handling of mail, as well as to the Interest of the department, that all errors should be properly accredited, that the practice of backstamplng first-class mail be reintroduced. Oscar Woodward Zeiqieb. Baltimore, Sept. 19.

Mr. Shertner Discusses The Snbject Of Moral Decadence And Points Ont That Adam And A Lot Of Other People Fell Into Sin Before The Newspapers Were Published. To the Editor of The Sun Sir: I notice by The Strx the subject of moral decadence has again been revived. I cannot agree with those correspondents who criticise The Sun and their efforts to hold it responsible for immoral conditions. While I do give them credit for their exposition of some of the unfortunate prevailing conditions, I still think they have formed their conclusions on this subject from the wrong angle of observation.

From a short observation of sacred history I find The Sun is fully justified in presenting the truth to the public, regardless of what some Individuals may think about it, and in so doing The Sun Is following an Important precedent of the very highest authority as laid down by the sacred writers under the spirit of inspiration. For whatsoever things were written aforetimes were written for our learning, and the first principle was their fidelity and impartiality in recording the character and actions of mankind in the minutest detail, whether good or evil. They made no effort to cover up the shortcomings of the individual or nation, and from the many examnles eiven us we find God's plan was to present the facts to man and leave the results to his own judgment, with some very important admonitions. So that in this connection there is presented to us the greatest possible variety of characters. Persons of all ranks are shown and virtue and vice are exhibited In every imaginable form, and so clearly delineated by the pencil of truth as to startle the mind of all rational beings with the great truth in respect of Heaven in all its joys and hell in all Its terrors as the final termination of the prospect.

Now, as touching the environments of youth, with the various restrictions advocated, as being the only salvation of our young people, this theory seems to have been entirely exploded and of no effect as a safe and moral guide, as exhibited In numerous of our Scriptural characters. For we find Adam was created In the very image of God and God's spirit was breathed into him, and he Inherited no sin and had no evil companions or the wicked Sunpaper to tempt him. But he being under the law of obligation to perfect obedience he fell into sin and lived about G30 years. But time did not change his character and his children became so wicked they were swept off the earth by a flood. Then in Noah a family was chosen, and yet with no evil companions or the Sunpaper to tempt them they proved to be no better than the children of Adam, and in building the Tower of Babel they were scattered like chaff before the wind.

Then through Abraham a nation, was chosen to be God's own peculiar people and to be kept separate from ail others, aL asss isaificaat religious Braving whatever battle came With such a calm, laconic flame Of withering scorn of wrong, the right Sat np to share with him his light. And thousands -followed him That warrior rugged, stony, grim The bootblack and the man who picks Rags of the city where the tricks Of life and fortune throw together Husks of all life the sunny weather Of wealth and substance in the tide By Poverty and Faction's side Winding tn solemn human lines That funeral train of wonder twines Its way through all our age to be Starred with the sane philosophy Of the exponent lying there Of all things recondite and fair, And foeman for the thoughtless throng Of the expedient and wrong! Needless to ask the meaning here Of newsboy's rose and ragman's tear! Trust to the common masses still To recognize amid all ill That grovels in our civic strife An honest mind, a noble life, A spirit of heroic mold. That now the Greenwood shadows hold Trust them Beneath the glittering tide And tinsel triumph, still abide The earnest feelings of the race All day they filed by form and face And unsealed casket just a crowd Deep in a grief It could not shroud For one gone down, through all the years Grown worthy of the people's tears! Long as tlft high Ideal is there. The worst of life must soon swing true To all the golden hopes we bear, And all the golden things men do. Business never better, and Wilson in the chair; Somethin' very nifty gettin' in the air.

Mills all rippin', roarin' and trains rollin' in With merchandise and harvests to make the nation grin. Currency and tariff comin' right at last, The devil in the ditches a-diggin' hard and fast; Morning shouting progress, and all along the day A lot of people doin' things the Woodrow Wilson way. How deep the clouds, how thick the gloom, How long the sombre days drag on; Behind them still In God's blue room A golden promise breaks In dawn. The Grip Of Baltimore. The wanderer wakes on his ship at sea, The traveler turns in his berth at night; The voyager wonders what it can be The grip of Baltimore, isn't it tight Overland, oceanward, land of foam, Wherever the feet of the wanderers roam.

The grip of Baltimore bids them start, With the grip of Baltimore on the heart Oh. its some old corner that makes appeal, Or some old custom of charm and grace; A jicture of vistas that o'er one steal The Cardinal's home, or Mount Vernon Place Oceanward, overland, whither you will, The grip of Baltimore grips one still. Haunting and human and what you may, The grip of Baltimore comes to stay! Tang of the waterfront, maybe, for me, The Walter's gallery, perhaps, for you; The Light street piers with their dream of the sea, The Druid Hill groves with their lawns of dew Outbound, homebound. sooner or late, Suddenly memory opens her gate, And flooding through with a ripping air The grip of Baltimore catches you there! The tourist tiring of all at last, The dreamer wandering in fancy far The grip of Baltimore catches them fast. Old Washington Square where the statues are! Far again, near again, all come home To the tender dream o'er land and foam.

To the beautiful spirit and charm and thrill When the grip of Baltimore clutches them still! The gunner without a gun, And the angler without a Ah, they shall bring us the golden sun And the beautiful smile of God. "Make easy, Lord, this bitter fray One's battles are not won that way Through dust and dread Into the light, That is the lesson of the fight. Through shadow and through doubt and gloom Unto the lovely hills of bloom. Made easy, would It be worth while, The banner of the golden smile? Made easy, would It not seem cheap? The dream is not from out the sleep, But from the toiling fancy wrought To action in dim halls of thought. Turn maybe into will and take the lance Along the lanes of conquering joy to run; Armed with the faith that grasps at every chance And wheels to face with native youth the sun.

For The Women. Let's do more for the women, More to make sweet each day The path they must go for weal or woe, Let us be friends by the way. Let us give wives more comforts, And a trip and a change and chance; Let us do more for the women Than the same old song and dance! Let us be good to the women, And true to the women and kind; Let us be sure that we live life pure Before we compel them to mind. Let us give mothers and sisters A better return for their love; Let us do more for the women Than "honey" and "darling" and "dove!" Let us be sweet to the women And give them their way now and then; Let us turn round from our habits unsound And show them that men can be men. Let us remember their wishes, And humor them once in a while; Let us do more for the women Than coddle and blarney and smile Not to conquer but to serve; Not to triumph but to give; Not to level but to lift; Not to palter but to live STORIES OF THE DAY Why Not From Every body 'so Magazine.

A young man walking through a foreign quarter stopped with, an amused smile In front of a small eating place the window of which had a sign, "Lam Stew." Tie proprietor, from his doorway, asked what the joke was and the young fellow explained about the missing in "lamb." The next day he found that while the bill of fare had changed the spelling lesson had not been forgotten. The proprietor was now offering "Clamb Chowder." Asklngr Questions. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Last Sunday, says our informant, a bunch of nice young men went through rioi7oinnfi nsldnir ouestlons. One of these young men met np with, another young man ana started nis caieuuiaiu us luuows: "Do you drink?" "No, sir." "Why don't you drink?" "My boss doesn't like it, my customers won't stand for it and my conscience won't let me." "Three very wonderful and practical reasons.

What is your business?" "I'm a bartender." That Was Different. From the Houston Post. "My dear," says the mother to the daughter, who is lying down with a sick headache and a box of chocolates, "here is a letter from your Uncle George saying that Lucy Tottle, who is away at school, has received a medal of honor for her perfection In art and music. It would be very nice of you to put on your hat and run down the street and tell the other girls." 'Oh, mamma, I feel too miserable to wala a step." The mother, opening another letter, glances at it, gulps with surprise, and exclaims: "Here's a letter from Aunt Jennie. She says Mildred Glimp has been flirting and carrying on dreadfully all summer at that hotel in Canada." "The horrid thing!" exclaims the daugh- I ter, sitting up and reaching for her hat Bt George Btrne.

Baltimore and the South are so firmly bound together by ties of propinquity and consanguinity, of commercial and industrial interest, that it would seem impossible that anything should come between them in matters of trade and social comity. The association between this city and that section Qas long been one of the closest friendship, and both have profited. Rut of late years, while there has been nothing that smacks of friendship grown cold, there has been apparently a relative slackening down of the enthusiasm with which the onewaswontto regard the other not, perhaps, "a rift In the lute," but a failure in their mutual commerce to keep pace with their business growth; a threat, a mere threat, that something may come between. This may well come naturally about, though slowly. So cordial is the esteem of Baltimore for the South, so warm the esteem of the South for Baltimore, that faere has been a feeling that It was not necessary to keep up an incessant declaration of mutual regard, and third parties, eager for the close business friendship of both, have constantly sought to worm themselves in between.

Baltimore, being by' far the largest Southern city east of the Mississippi, is and of a right ought to be the commercial, financial, social and educational capital of that vast section reaching from the Susquehanna to the Gulf and from the Ohio to fae sea. And by history and tradition, by spiritual endowment, geographical position and material possessions Baltimore is superbly equipped to maintain such place. In the first place Baltimore, while on the Hue dividing the political North from the political South, has always been Southern in Its manners, its habits and its sympathies, its people have the gentle courtesy of the South, the far-reaching, all-embracing hospitality, the kindliness to strangers, the chivalrous regard for women. You encounter these things wherever you go In Baltimore In the homes of rich and poor alike, among the policemen, who are never too much engaged to answer questions and give directions; on the street cars, where the conductors are pleasantly attentive to the requests of passengers; in the elevators, where every man's raat is instantly off when a woman steps in. These things make the Southerner feel at homo In Baltimore.

They are what he is accustomed to see in his own town. Geographically trae location of Baltimore could not have been better chosen. Lying on the greatest of our ocean inlets, whose numerous navigable tributaries carry vessels from the city's wharves to hundreds of cities, towns and villages In neighboring States, Baltimore also easily commands water-borne traffic with every port from the Virginia Capes to the mouth of fae Rio Grande. Its railroads radiate in all directions, ramifying all sections of the South with their connections, and from all parts of the Southeast to the centres of business and population of the Northeast every train finds its most direct route throng'.) Baltimore. It is the waist of the hour glass through which run the sands of commerce that mark the progress of tho two great sections.

From an educational point of view Baltimore fills every requirement. It has an excellent public school system, the bearers of whose diplomas are matriculated in the colleges and universities of the highest class without further examination. The Johns Hopkins University is in every way the equal of the best educatlonnl institutions in the country, and is in some things fae unchallenged leader. The University of Maryland and numerous other schools of college or academy grade round out a full complement of institutions for the edu cation of young men. If professional preparation is desired in law, medicine, literature, the arts and sciences Baltimore offers unsurpassed opportunities.

In technical and industrial training its advantages are of the best. For young women Gouch-er College furnishes a course of instruction of the highest and most thorough kind. Of the six colleges for women in tho country rated first class by Government experts Goucher is one. All the others lie farther North and out of the zone of Southern thought and Southern influence in which all Southern parents should wish to have their daughters educated, other things being equal, as they are here. There are here also educational advantages of an-ower sort, yet scarcely less in vnluo t'mn those offered by the schools.

They are such as are furnished by the splendid art galleries, where many of the best paintings of this and all other countries are gathered and are at frequent intervals open to public visit, inspection and study. In musical instruction Baltimore's offerings are excellent, and frequent concerts and recitals of the best class offer opportunities for cultivation not attainable in many cities. The best offerings of the theatrical world find their way to Baltimore during the season, adding their finishing educational touch to those already mentioned. Every religious denomination is sepresented in the church edifices and congregations of the city, and some of the most eloquent pulpit orators of the day fill Baltimore pulpits. Living conditions here are well-nigh ideal.

In no other city can a man of moderate means live so well and so economically. Rents are lower than in other cities and foodstuffs ore cheaper and better. Baltimore markets are famous the country over, standing first in respect of excellence, variety and cheapness of vegetables, melons, fruits and sea foods. The reason for much of this is readily apparent to the map student. Baltimore lies nearer than any other of the big cities to the early truck gardens of Florida and the whole South Atlantic Coast, but a night's run by boat from the fields of the Norfolk trucking section, the richest on the continent, and in the later season Anne Arundel and the counties of the Eastern Shore pour their morsels of delight onto the counters of the market men.

Chesapeake Bay, America's greatest fishing ground, supplies the fish, oysters and crabs in unfailing quantities and of quality unsurpassed. In no other city in the United States can the householder take a basket and a dollar and bring home so much for the sustenance and delectation of the family. Another strong appeal to the man of moderate means Is made by the dry goods and other stores. Baltimore Is famous for being the cheapest shopping city In the United States. The merchants here seem to be satisfied with smaller profits than those demanded elsewhere, or else the cost of doing business is so much less that the purchaser gets an appreciable benefit.

Strange as it may seem, It Is, nevertheless, a fact that people come to Baltimore from both Philadelphia and New York to do their shopping. A citizen of Baltimore recently come here from a Southern State said in mv hearing the other day: "I travel In the South most of the time and from a purely financial standpoint it would suit me better to make my home in some small Southern town, where living expenses are less than here. But I have children to educate and I find that, all things considered, it is a matter of economy to establish my family here. The children will have the advantage of the best public schools until they are ready for college, and then they can stay right at home and enjoy the benefits of college courses as good as any offered anywhere. Meantime all the members of the family will have the advun-tages of the art exhibitions, good music, high-class theatrical attractions and such other benefits as can be secured only in a city.

I do not wish to live in any but a Southern city; I could not afford to live in any big city but Baltimore. For whiie there are small towns In which living Is cheaper than here, in no other city is good living as Inexpensive as in Baltimore." To the man from the South, therefore, who wishes to adopt city life that he may the better and more fully educate his children, or give his family the benefit of advantages that cannot be enjoyed in the country or the smaller towns, Baltimore presents attractions far beyond those offered by any other American municipality. It Is a healthy, wholesome, hospitable city a city of happy homes and refining Influences, a good city in which to trade, to live, to maintain your family, to educate your children. These facts were once well known and thoroughly appreciated throughout the South the people of Baltimore should see to it that they are not for- -gQttao. 1 Scripture and experience both teach the folly of trying to legislate virtue into men's lives.

Now, my observation of the moral decadence of our young girls Is that it is not attributable to The Scn, but rather to the lack of parental control and too early admittance into company or society before the age of discretion, which in itself is a dangerous thing, as shown by one lot of 15,000 fallen women In New York, with 85 per cent, under 18 years old and a mere superficial training to meet the vicissitudes of life and the requirements of our social system seem in a great measure to be three of the guilty parties to this end. My experience Is that but very few young girls read the newspapers or anything else that is really worth reading. It would seem their leisure time is entirely absorbed in such as has been written for the entertainment of the mind only, and in which romance builds its wonderful palaces of ait and then peoples Its imaginary world with beings who have been created for no other purpose than to make sin appear beautiful and pleasant. Thtis our young and unsuspecting youths become fascinated with these fallen angels of fiction and are whirled on toward the kingdom of darkness in the supposed chariot of light, carrying with them the image of their imaginary heroes stamped on their minds and to be met with later, and for this meeting our social system requires from Infancy up to womanhood that every art and effort be. employed to make her appear beautiful and attractive to man.

Having entered Into society to begin the mission in life, she soon meets the counterpart of her hero and to her he for the time Is the perfection of all grace, and after a time invites her to accompany him to some enjoyable function, and polite society requires her to commit herself to his care, be assuming all expenses, and thus like a lamb she is led to the slaughter. Now, this condition is In a great meusure forced on girls through necessity and ofttimes caused by unequal methods of salary received for the same work performed by man, while the cost of dress is greater than that of man, which In itself, from a financial view, to a great extent robs woman of her independence and often forces her to the care or tender mercies of the devil In the form of man, to be later turned over to the kindness of the vice crusaders. Isaac P. Shehtzhb-- Belair, Sept. 21.

Opposes The Pensioning: Of Episcopal Clergymen. To the Editor of The Sun Sir: I write to yoiu as a daily reader of The Sun, a resident of your city and a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church, but a traveling man. I read in your issue of yesterday that one of the questions to be brought up at the triennlel convention In New York next month Is the raising of $5,000,000 for superannuated priests, and I most solemnly protest against this wanton waste. Why should any minister of any denomination be pensioned? Think of the enormous salaries drawn by a majority of them. Many of them not only have such salaries but have house rent, heat and light free.

I am ashamed to think that the clergy of my faith would go before any body and ask or allow such a thing to be. I venture to say that 50 per cent. them have just finished, or soon will, a vacation of six to 12 weeks and their salaries continued and many of them their expenses paid. And then too, think of the extremely small families they have. Why do they not do as the police and fire departments, railroad employes, tax themselves a graduated percentage, according to salary? Suppose every priest receiving $1,200 a year would be taxed 5 per cent, and up, according to salary, what an amount it would raise.

Who Is expected to raise this pension? Why, those who make their living "by the sweat of their brow," who have house rent, heat and light bills to pay, and have large families, ho is going to pension them and how many of them get paid when they ay off? I have traveled 22 years, traveled early and late, endured hardships of all kinds and been exposed to all kinds of weather. And do you think my firm pays my salary, giving me house, heat and light free and a vacation? Not by a jugful. And yet they ask me and my kind to contribute to their living. I want to tell you that If such a resolution goes through it will drive thousands from the church. If they worked, if they did their duty, if they were in earnest (I speak of the majority), it might be looked upon and accepted with better grace.

How many parishes within the limits of Baltimore city have been closed in the past 25 years and how many new ones opened? And yet our population has gone way ahead. Take the parish to which I belong 25 years ago It had a Sunday-school of 600 scholars, and today not 250, and yet that section in that time has increased 200 per cent. No, Mr. Editor, we do not want and must not pension them, but we must have men, real men, men who are as conscientious In their church affairs as in their commercial affairs for vestrymen, and not jellyfish. When we do have such men the church will grow, the Sunday-schools will grow and the minister will do his part.

Churchman. Baltimore, Sept. 20. Thinks The Press Regards Crime As Good Stoclc In Trade. To the Editor of The Sun Sir: Mr.

Le Deans takes exception to my comment on the leading news in your paper, and, as he doesn't seem to understand my meaning, I shall explain. The press gives the public what It is most interested In, and from the Importance given crime one must infer that It is more interested in that portion of daily affairs. The press is the greatest force in molding the character of the public that the world has ever known, and I often wonder if it is not minimizing the horror of crime in the way it handles it. Murder should mean the most horrible crime a human being can be guilty of but ofttimes the criminal becomes of great interest, so much so that his cell is banked with flowers and the Mayor of the town honors him with a call. Divorce should mean a wrecked home and unhappiness.

To sum it up, the more crime published, the more profit to the press, or the more ready sale for papers or, to put It in a business sense, the best stock in trade is wickedness and crime. The press has some of the best intellects, and the question is, Is it using its power rightly? J. Kemp Wxsham. Roland Park, Sept. 21.

Where Two Old Defenders Sleep. To the editor of The Sun Sir: In response to the desire of the committee of the Star-Spangled Banner Centennial to know the burial places of those who fought in the War of 1812-14, I will state that my father, Robert Brooks, Is burled In Mount Olivet Cemetery. He was born in March, 1791, and died September 20, 1S40. Also my grandfather. Col.

Henry Amery, serve at North Point. At that time his home was at the corner of Lombard and Paca streets, where he carried on business. He is buried in Western Cemetery, in the lot of his son-in-law, Mr. William Fairbanks, by the side of his wife. As your paper and I are nearly of one age, ou can publish this letter in my name.

Mjs- Oliver Perin (79 Years Old). Baltimore, Sept. 24. CORRECTION Readers are requested to call attention to any errors appearing in the columns of The Sun. Oeorjte K.

Packham Pfot To Go. In The Sun last Saturday it was stated that among those who would attend the General Convention of the Christian Church in Toronto was George K. Pack-ham. Mr. Packham states that this was an error, as he would not be one of those taking the trip, but, that the reference was intended for his brother, William A.

T. NO REAL RACE HOSTILITY IN BALTIMORE. The Sun is glad to see that there is to be no further delay in the passage of a segregation ordinance, because we believe that a fair ordinance of this character will not only protect property from depreciation but will serve to allay the race feeling that might be engendered by present conditions. Such an ordinance will be in the interest of the colored race as much as in that of the white. It will not shut up colored residents in undesirable sections or streets, but will simply provide a modus a rule which will promote the peace and which will be as applicable to white as to colored householders.

The leaders of the colored race in this city can do their people a great service by counseling them to accept the situation In good faith and by endeavoring to maintain kindly relations between them and white residents. The same rule has been adopted in a number of Southern cities and has worked harmoniously, and there is no reason why it should not be carried out In the same spirit In Baltimore. The white race is the dominant and superior race, and it will, of course, maintain its supremacy. But that does not mean that Baltimoreans desire to treat the negro with injustice or unkindness, or that there is any real hostility between blacks and whites. A large majority of the white people of Baltimore have nothing but the most friendly feeling for the "colored man and brother," and the daily business intercourse between them shows conclusively that he retains his old kindly regard for them.

There is a sort of inherited sentiment on both sides, here as farther South, that defies the effort to array them against each other, and which brings the two races closer than they ever get in the North or West. The attitude of the Southern man and the attitude of the average Baltimorean toward colored people is one of helpfulness. He sees in them not simply wards of the nation but descendants of those whom he and his ancestors trusted and respected for their loyalty and affection. All this has not been wiped out by changed domestic relations, or by the clashes that occur between the thoughtless and reckless individuals of either race. The main current of good will and good feeling still flows smoothly on, and will not be disturbed by any merely personal incidents or by such legislation as the segregation ordinance.

Our colored folks will come to see in time that the line of residential demarcation thus established will be as much for their benefit as for the rest of the community, both by its development of their own self-respect and by the removal of the causes which are used by the unscrupulous to produce friction and to create a race hostility that would not otherwise exist.

With all the turmoil and revolution, one would think commerce between the United States and Mexico was almost at a standstill. Yet the Bureau of Foreign Commerce reports that for the fiscal year recently ended the trade between the two countries was the largest on record, imports increaslngby $20,000,000 over 1911, though there was a decrease of some $5,000,000 in exports from that year, while as compared with 1912 there was a material increase in both Imports and exports. These figures are a little discouraging to the alarmists who have been shrieking that American interests in Mexico have been almost destroyed. SUNBEAMS.

FOURTEEN PAGES. WILLIAM J. GAYNOR. The hundreds of thousands who stood in the rain as his coffin was borne to the grave paid a very Impressive tribute to New York's dead Mayor. Rich and poor, Republican, Independent and Democrat have a common feeling that the city has lost "one of its most useful citizens.

Not forgetting his faults, they remember his virtues, and they were many. "Strong men have the faults of their virtues," and whatever Mayor Gay-nor's defects, they were his own. His pronounced individuality sometimes cropped out in the moat unexpected ways. Sensitive to criticism, he had no mercy on his critics. But the very vigor of his assertiveness doubtless grew out of a native independence that was splendid when asserted in the right direction.

"I have been Mayor," was his proudest thought. And his hold on his people must have been rooted in their conviction of his honesty and integrity. He struck out straight from the shoulder, and men love a fighter. He discussed frankly subjects the timid man avoids, and while that made him some enemies, it made him more friends. His letters disclose an originality, a whimsical humor and a sympathy with humanity in general that remove the impression of austerity.

Gaynor may not be numbered among the great; he may not have made an ideal Mayor; but he was an interesting, many-sided, very human man who has left his impress upon his city and State. And ability, honesty and independence in a public official may well be mourned. SCIENCE PICKS UP THE DIVINING HOD. The old-fashioned well-diggers who depended on a rod to find where they could strike water are entitled to a smile of satisfaction when they learn that grave scientists are holding an international conference on the subject. Over in Europe the diviners claim they are not only able to determine the presence of water many feet under ground, but can tell where gold is located.

So, with characteristic German patience, the scientists are weighing the testimony and holding elaborate tests, while the Kaiser himself looks on with undisguised interest. When their report in ten or twelve volumes is completed, we may be able to tell more about it. The divining rod will either rise to the dignity of a scientific instrument or be consigned to the class of the lightning rod and the madstone. ALBANIA A TINDER BOX. Without Austria's support, Essad Pasha would be merely a bold adventurer, running wild in Albania because there is no power to suppress him.
