If the predictions of the Republican lead ers that the session of Congress which be' gins today will be barren of fruit is verified, it will not be because of any lack of important business which will press itself upon the two houses. The session immediately preceding a Presidential campaign Is, indeed, usually devoted to oratory and to playing for position by the two parties. But at the extra session last summer the Democratic members in the House seemed to have made the discovery that the best way to play politics and strengthen their ; party is to attend honestly and fairly to the public business, to stand by the principles of the party and to do what the people commissioned them to do when the present House was elected. If this policy is continued through this coming session, the session will end in substantial results, or the Republican President and Senate will have to assume the responsibility for failure. The President will be confronted with a Democratic House and a Republican Senate. But the Senate is only nominally Republican. That party has a majority of eight Senators, but there are in this majority a dozen Insurgents who are far more hostile to the President than the Democrats are. This is a long session, but as both national conventions will meet next summer both parties will be anxious for an early adjournment, and the session may be expected to end somewhere about the first of July. There will be a great advantage in the start, because the House is already organized. Usually a new Congress loses the first month In the election of Speaker and the appointment of committees and in other preparations for work. All this was accomplished at the extra session, and both Houses will be ready for immediate business when they meet at noon today. The President's message tomorrow will bring up the trust question, with recommendations for amendments to the Sherman law. That will place this question in the front at once, and it will doubtless occupy much of the session. But the Democrats declare that they will not permit that question or any other to sidetrack the tariff. The President Vill later on transmit to Congress the report of the Tariff Board. The House will wait for that report a reasonable time, and, if it does not come, the cotton, woolen and steel schedules, and perhaps sugar, will be taken up and bills sent to the Senate, which may be expected to pass them in some form. The Democrats will formulate the appropriation bills, and it is expected that they will pursue a policy of rigid economy, in which the President will earnestly cooperate. Other subjects which will come up in the session are the report of the Monetary Commission recommending changes in the" national bank and currency laws; an anti-injunction and a contempt bill; employers" liability bill; a parcels post bill; several road bills; the question of tolls through the Panama Canal; conservation measures and especially those affecting Alaska; the resolution for a constitutional - amendment changing the manner of elect ing Senators; the regulation of corpora- . tions doing Inter-State business; the bill providing pay for the militia. In addition to all these things the Sen at, will have the arbitration treaties which have been negotiated by the Presi lent and also the Lorimer inquiry. The i President is extremely anxious for the 1 ratification of the peace treaties; but they will meet with serious opposition. Mr. ,; Roosevelt has pronounced against some of ' their chief features, and this will cause '" much difficulty in getting the constitu tional majority for the ratification. t is ejected that there will be bills for the abolition of the Court of Com- merce. with which the Mountain States i are very angry, on account of Its holding up the decisions of the Commerce Com mission regarding the long ana snort naui. ) Whatever the result in actual legisla- ' tion may be, there can be little doubt that ' rnneressional Record will be over- l whelmed with speeches. HUGH JENNINGS. Here's hoping Hugh. Jennings escapes without serious results ! He's a star ball player, a baseball general, an advocate of " dean sport who practices wnatnepreacnes : This is not the first narrow escape he has . i,ad When a student at Cornell, diving into a swimmin? pool he struck the con crete bottom and almost "broke his neck In a game between the old Orioles and the Giants one of Amos Rusie's cannon-ball .nrvfs struck him on the head. He recov ered fully, and since has played in a thou sand grilling games. Jennings' injuries in the automobile accident near Goldsboro, Pa., seem to be serious, and the anxiety of his hundreds of Baltimore friends will net,.bc relieved until he is pronounced out of danger.

Woodrow Wilson twenty-five years ago was a student at Johns Hopkins University, which in 1SS6 made him a doctor of philosophy. His Interest then, as now, was in history, sociology and political economy, and his theses and other writings at that time were evidences of a close study of the origin and development of the Btate and a deep Insight into governmental problems. It was here that he laid the foundation for broad statesmanship, and those who knew that the science of government had been his life study were not surprised when the "scholar In politics" developed into the practical Governor who attracted the attention of the country by putting Into effect his reform program In New Jersey. Some of his classmates, a number of those who knew him as a young man, are still here, and his visit to Baltimore is a return to his old home. Governor Wilson is to speak at the Lyric on Tuesday night under the auspices of the Women's Good Government Committee, composed of representatives of leading women's clubs. The advisory committee, which Las been assisting the ladles in the preparations for the meeting, comprise some of the most prominent men in the city, and while women are expected to be present in large numbers, men will naturally compose the greater part of the audience. The prominence and popularity of Governor Wilson will Insure him a cordial reception from the people of Baltimore and the State, and citi zens and voters of all classes and parties will be Interested in what he has to say. There will be no charge for admission, and the assemblage is likely to be one of the most representative as well as brilliant ever gathered in the Lyric. ONE LESSON OF THE McNAMARA CASE. A good many of our contemporaries have made the McNamara confessions the occasion for an onslaught upon organized labor. There is no justice in this. The labor organizations of the country comprise a great multitude of men. There are, of course, bad men among them. But as a whole, they are as law-abiding, loyal and good citizens as men in any other walks of life. Mr. Samuel Gompers, by declining to await the result of the trial and passing judgment, precipitately misled thousands who had confidence in him. That confidence is now weakened, and it does not seem unlikely that his leadership will shortly terminate. In the meantime, the McNamara Incident should stimulate the labor organizations to discountenance violence In any form, and, instead of rushing to the defense of those suspected of such deeds as the McNamaras confessed, labor should join in detecting and exposing them. It is an appropriate time to consider the absolute abolition of strikes involving violence and boycott as a means of compelling justice. There are other ways by which the wrongs of labor may be redressed without injuring whole communities of innocent people, including, above all others, the families of the strikers, and without giving the occasion for riots and violence. The Typographical Union has found a method by which all that its members prop erly desire can be attained without any wrong to the public and without loss to themselves. All classes of labor might study that method with profit. BALTIMORE THE PLACE FOR THE CONFEDERATE REUNION IN 1913. The largest crowd that ever gathers in the South Is that which attends the annual reunion of Confederate veterans. Some 10,000 of the soldiers that followed Lee and Jackson meet at these reunions, but several times that number of their sons, wives and daughters go with them. Little Rock entertained them this year and had nearly twice as many visitors as the Arkansas capital has inhabitants. Next year the reunion will be held in Macon, and the Georgia city is preparing for 75,000 or more during the second week in May. . The "thin gray line" is growing thinner each year. Age and disease are mak ing constant inroads on the ranks of the veterans. It will not be many years before the last of these great reunions will be held. Undoubtedly the ex-Confederates will meet in Richmond when the Confed erate Battle Abbey Is completed. In the belief that this memorial would be ready for dedication in 1914, the veterans ex pected to go to Richmond in that year. But construction has been delayed, and there Is little probability that the abbey will be completed before thesprlng of 1915. This gives Baltimore the opportunity to invite the ex-Confederates to assemble here in 1913. Only five months remain before the Macon reunion. If we are to expect success, an organized campaign must be waged, committees organized and the field carefully canvassed. Among the ex-Confederates here are numbered many prominent business and professional men. In making up the committees and the delegation to appear at Macon, care should be taken to secure men who will be thoroughly representative ex-Confederates and thor oughly representative Marylanders, who can present ably and impressively the city's claims a Maryland delegation which will command attention and confidence at home as well as in Georgia. The veterans would like to come to the historic city In which the Civil War began, and the largest city In the South should give them an invitation so cordial and so representa tive of Baltimore and the State that "they cannot reject it. WELCO 3IE TO WO 31 EN FROM THE COUNTIES. The women of Baltimore hope to have the pleasure of entertaining hundreds of their sisters from the counties this week. As a reference to the Maryland Week pro gram will show, there are plenty of events to Interest all, but special efforts have been made to provide for the convenience and entertainment of the woman visitors. The ladies themselves have charge of this fea ture, and from the moment they register in the rooms at the Fifth Regiment Armory, the ladies from others towns and counties will find a warm welcome and constant attention. Shoppers who register will be given dis counts at leading stores, and ladies will accompany them to the retail district or show them points of interest. A rest room has been fitted up In the armory. There will be speeches, lectures, receptions, teas and a sight-seeing automobile ride around the city. Ladies from the country can feel safe in coming alone, for they will be directed to private boarding places or hotels. The big meeting at the Lyric, at which Woodrow Wilson will speak, is under the direction of Baltimore women. They will take a prominent part In the activities of Maryland Week, and they issue a special invitation to the women of every county to enjoy their hospitality and the excellent program they have provided. THE PANAMA CANAL AS A FREE 'WATERWAY. The argument of Mr. John Barrett, Di rector-General of the Pan-American Union, for making the Panama Canal afree wa terway for ships of all nations is not con vincing. He estimates that the cost of maintaining the canal will be $3,000,000 a year, and at 3 per cent, the interest on the cost will be $12,000,000 a year. ' Estimat ing the trade which will pass through the canal the rear after it Is opened at 10.- 000,000 tons, the tbll on a 3, 000-ton ship would be $4,500, if the whole cost is to be paid by the tolls. This charge, Mr. Bar rett thinks, would be discouraging. But when he assumes that because the whole cost of the canal would be too heavy a burden, thereiore there should be no charge, his logic Is defective. He thinks a free canal would cause the trade of the United States to grow so rapidly that it wotjid, In fact, yield a better return than could be had from tolls. The weakness of this argument lies In the fact that, while the cost to the people of the United States of maintaining a free canal would be fixed and certain, the profits to come from that policy is merely a matter of opinion. It would be difficult to convince the Congress that the people of the United States should be taxed $15,000,000 a year, inde; pendent of the sinking funds for $400,-000,000, to provide a more convenient waterway for foreign vessels carrying the trade of Equador and Peru to Europe. If Mr. Barrett's object is to promote trade between the east and west coasts of the United States by providing free transit for ships, a better way might be found by providing for transportation on the railroads at public expense. It has never been expected that the canal would pay expenses from the beginning. The reasonable business way would be to fix such proper and moderate tolls as commerce will gladly pay and trust to the increase of tonnage for future profits. In the meantime the use of the canal for the navy will repay to the Government a considerable part of the cost. The matter should be treated as a business proposition. SUNBEAMS. .

Colin Livingston, who is president of the Potomac and Chesapeake Steamboat Compnny and lives In Washington, said yesterday at the Waldorf that the latest thing of interest in the country tributary to the Potomac was that a man from Michigan, a farmer, had bought a place on the Virginia side, below Colonial Beach, and made a success out of oyster farming. "This man," said Mr. Livingston, "sold his farm out in Michigan for $100 an acre and bought land in Virginia at $10 an acre. His property has a good frontage along the river, so he started in planting oysters, and now makes as much profit out of his oyster beds as he did out of his Michigan farm. Besides, there is the produce from his farm. He Is now trying to induce some of his old neighbors to move down there and start a colony. He says, 'What's the use of going to Canada when you can get land so cheaply near the capital of the United States?' "Down there there are many small factories that boil tomatoes and can them. Owing to the perishable nature of the crop the factories ring a bell when they want tomatoes, but many farmers are too lazy to pick them. The Michigan man told me he believed there were $100,000 worth of tomatoes going to waste every year in that region because of laziness." ALABAMA JOINS IN Governors Expected To Start Im migration Movements. From the Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser. Governor Crothers, of Maryland, has in vited 15 Southern Governors to meet in Baltimore the first week in December to consider ways and means of inducing immi gration to the South. Many Western Governors have also been invited to attend to give their Southern brethren the benefit of their experience in getting immigrants to go West. This is a great opportunity. The Baltimore Sux says; "e need more settlers; we can get them. Now is the time to turn the tide of immigration toward the Southern States." We have the land, the climate, the schools. churches, the right sort of neighbors. We have the desire to make room for others who would come here with the hope of be coming home-makers and citizens. ' SOUTHERN GOVERNORS IN IT They Will Meet The Western Gov ernors In Baltimore. From the Columbia (S. a) State. Seven Governors and a Lieutenant-Gov ernor, representing eight western dtates, are traveling in the Eastern part of this country. They occupy 11 Pullman cars and are accompanied by exhibits of the material resources of their respective States. Very likely the Governors of North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Alabama and Florida would join the Governor of South Carolina in an excursion of this kind for the advertisement of the glories and riches of their Commonwealths. ' Woodrow Wilson On Roosevelt. H. Hamilton Fyfe in London Fortnightly Review. Unless the American ship of state should unexpectedly glide into calm waters, Theodore Roosevelt will be found again at the helm. In the-meantime. Woodrow Wilson is probably the man he would most gladly see elected to the Presidency. Not that the two are alike. They are. indeed, in most ways the antithesis of one another. Mr. Wilson is analytical, sardonic, a keen j knife-edge of a man. He has made fun more than once of Mr. Roosevelts knack of rushing in with a big stick before he quite knows whose Aead he ought to break with It. "I am told," said the ex-president of Princeton a few years ago, "that as soon as Mr. Kooseveit thinks he talKs, a si- ultaneous miracle that is not. according to our education, the customary way of forming an opinion." Progressive Southern Farmers. From the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Secretary Wilson, of the Department of Agriculture, says Southern farmers are more progressive than the Northern ones. It takes some people a long time to find out things that everybody else has known a long time. MARYLAND MUSINGS By The Bextztown Babd. The Old Bakethop. The old bakeshop why it's there again to day. A dreamer In the shadows that are Just across the way ! The old bakeshop when the holidays are here, And we stand beside the window and we try between the tear To see the little cookies with the raisins on again, And sniff the odors drifting to the world of weary men From that shop along the highway of the little country town, Where the heart beats sweet as the dreams go down 1 The old bakeshop, with the gingerbready smell, And the doughnuts in a bowl with their im memorial spell ; The busy baker man with his apron full of flour, Baking all the day and throug'a every shining hour Weaving icing -ornaments to put upon the pies. And put upon the Christmas cakes that opened children's eyes ; His apron full of flour yes, his arms full, too, And you always ran away when he turned and looked at you ! The old bakeshop, for the sake of all things sweet. I love the little vision in the midst of childhood street, And I see the little children gazing wistful on the shelf And picking out and choosing, with the childish thought of self. The gingerbread dog and the glngeroread cat, And the gingerbread girl, with a feather In her hat, - And her little legs so round that they seemed like puddings, dear, In that far, far dream of the golden yesteryear ! The old bakeshop, why I tingle like a child When I think of it there, and my heart Is turning wild To dream I see the baker man, with dust of flour upon him, And all the cookies shining in the baker-shop to sun him, And all the little shadows of the children passing by To smack their lips and giggle at the dough- nuts and the pie, And squeeze their only penny and say rather-haves so much The penny almost faded from the fierceness of their clutch ! The old bakeshop, when it's coming Christmas time, Don't I see it all again through the fleeting season's rime. With its seed cakes, caraway, cocoanut and all, Its candy canes of peppermint that dangled on the wall, Its little lady coming when the bell rang o'er the door To see what little customer had visited the store, And eyes of children glowing in that golden dream again With rosy cheeks and noses pressed so close against the pane ! We dig the ditches in which we fall, We court the sorrows, we cause them all ; We make the beds that we lie in, then We try to blame them on other men. Days come when we do not seem Gathering much to help our dream Burn and brighten ; days that go Sort of empty, like, and slow, Nothing coming in to be Part of us from lTfe's great sea ; Yet, they have their purpose still In helping like to pay its bill. That which makes Christmas is heartbeat wild Of laughing youngster and little child; And all of its bauble and all of Its glow Is part of our dream of the long ago. Apple Toddy. What's this apple toddy but a beaker from the brink Of dewy dells, where summer leans above the cup to drink ! What's this apple toddy but whole sea sons f ul of sun In amber, ancient valleys where the purple twilights run I . What's this apple toddy But the dripple of a dew That came through all the orchards Of the world to me and you ! What's this apple toddy that they're pouring from the bowl But endless sunny summers in strange gardens of the soul, Where blossoms trembled 6nowy and then passed to crimson gleams Upon the fruited rondure of the apple globes of dreams ! What's this apple toddy But' all sunlight and all sun That in a silver current Of contentment meet and run ! What s this apple toddy but long years of mother earth Producing juice and flavor of the elemental mirth, To fall from boughs of autumn and be gathered up and made Into a dew of magic out of mingled sun and shade ! Whafs th!s apple toddy But a thousand years of spring Squeezed out of golden globules Just to help the heart to sing ! Editor Bright, of the Hampstead Enterprise, who was defeated on the legislative ticket at the recent election, thinks there are a lot of liars in Carroll county, and in a recent issue says : "A lire in Italy Is worth about 19 cents, but the whole bunch of liars we met before the election are not worth a damn here or anywhere else." Have your heart rightthat's the test, Life will look out for the rest. Have your heart right that's the thing Helps the sweetness in us ring. Have your heart right that's the key To the whole philosophy. Have your heart right and why care For the shadow and despair ! -When the heart's right, weal or woe, With undying trust we go. Among the vain boosters at Vienna : "Un cle Tom. of Reid's Grove, was in town last Wednesday and he and Uncle Robert had quite an argument in a friendly way, and it is very evident that Uncle Tom is a progressive of the deepest dye. while Uncle Rob is still a standpatter, but Uncle Tom told him when he left that "he could have his way for" a quarter." Bend Over And Kiss Her. Bend over and kiss hr that won't hurt ! Bend over and kiss from her heart the dirt Of daily trouble and sorrow and gloom, Bend over and kiss her, until the bloom Of love comes back to her cheeks, and she Is glad as the woman you love should be. Bendover and kiss her she wants you to, Though she would not hint It, what'er you do ; But that don't matter, and so be kind, And so lean over, and so don't mind, But softly caressing her brow and hair Bend right over and kiss her there. Bend over and kiss her it may surprise Her heart with joy, till her wondering eyes Lift through shadow and tear and trial, To look in yours ; but her lips will smile, And her heart will leap with a nameless thrill ; If you bend over and kiss you will ! Bend over and kiss her you forget Sometimes to do it, and she may fret. And far thoughts fill her of days to be When you'll grow cold and your love will flee, And she'll not charm you as once in life When you bent and kissed her and called her wife. I've written unto Santa Claus a mild and gentle hint, Which all of you no doubt surmise sug gests a ton of mint. Shop early she is tired and worn. Shop early she hath greatly borne The burden of her daily task Of seeming sweet to those who ask The price of this, the cost of that Shop early, that her life thereat May find some solace and some cheer In thought of others toiling "here Had thought of, her, and tried to give The salesgirl some poor chance to live.

To the Editor of The Sux Sir: If we have a Society for the Suppression of Vice In this city it seems to me It is high time it was taking action against the hundreds of dissolute, lazy and dissipated colored people who infest the back alleys with their wickedness, and, while refusing to accept honest work, manage somehow to get their living without work or physical effort. Of the thousands who infest these alleys but a small percentage are married, while hundreds are living together much the same as animals. It is almost impossible to get one of these negroes to do any housework or other labor, but all day long they are seen going with cans and kettles for beer to the neighboring saloons and carrying the carousing far into the night. To say that the police do. not know of these horrible conditions is to deny that they have human intelligence. The breaking up of this disgraceful condition of affairs would also tend to break up the nightly orgies in these alleys, which are a constant annoyance to the re spectable people living in the vicinity. It seems hard that poor white people have to labor for their daily bread while these negroes are permitted to live in vice, crime and idleness. Something should be done at once to remedy this evil. Christian Citizen. Baltimore, Nov. 30. Marshal Farnan declared, after being informed of "Christian Citizen's" complaint, tnat he will immediately take up the pro test as to the behavior of the negroes in certain streets and alleys of West Balti more. Marshal Farnan declared that no wholesale arrests could be made, unless evidence is produced to warrant such action. "In neighborhoods where ries-roes Inhabit the alleys and small streets." said the Marshal, "the police make an effort to keep them orderly. If they are disorderly on the street they are arrested. If thev disturb the peace of a certain neighborhood it is trie duty of the other residents to secure warrants for the arrest of the disturbers. I have had no complaints from white people in the section referred to, but I will take up the matter with Captain McGee, of the Southwestern district. The police cannot force negroes to work and we cannot arrest them without sufllcient cause. The truth is that these negroes need very little money to live in the manner in which they do. and conse quently if they work two or three days a wees tney nave sufficient funds. The police will take immediate action where the law is violated." Editor of Tftk Sun. Declares Both Gomners And nar row Should Be Punished. To the Editor of The Sex Sir: Sam uel Gompers, dozing in his Pullman car, hears that the McNamaras have confessed. He is astounded to think that $190,000 of good union money Is not sufficient to smother the truth. A reporter asks : "What effect do yon Imagine this will have on labor unions?" Gompers snaps his fingers and ejaculates: "None!" (See The Sux of December 2.) ' This same Gompers said in regard to the dynamite outrages in Colorado, when Harry Orchard had convinced many of us that Pettebone, Haywood and Mover were guilty of numerous murders, including the wholesale slaughter at Independence, this same Gompers said there was not evidence enough "to hang a yellow dog." Perhaps at the present time there is in sufficient evidence to put Gompers in the penitentiary for aiding and abetting crim inals. But there is where he belongs. Clarence Darrow declares that although his precious villains are guilty, "there was really no criminal intent." Oh, no ! The gang dynamited some 67 structures, com- bitting a number of murders, but "there was really no criminal Intent!" They carried In their suitcases, along with infernal machines, a Colt's revolver and a Winchester rifle, merely to protect themselves against kidnappers like William J. Burns. Darrow succeeded in clearing Pettebone, Haywood, Moyer & Co., and he tried hard to earn that $190,000.

FinTTOR of- The Sun Sir: Re ferring to the Question of an over-supply of coroners in Baltimore, which was discussed in today's Sux, is not the appointment oi mnro Vinr nne coroner for Baltimore city a matter of comparatively recent date? Can you lurnlsn a list oi tne cixy corouera under the old single-coroner system? I am Informed that the late Dr. Hiram L. Spicer, who was appointed coroner by Gov. Oden Boyle in 1870, and who was assistant health commissioner of Baltimore under Mayors Hodges and Latrobe, was the first coroner under the old system oi appointments. X. Y. Z. Baltimore, Nov. 30. rThe one-coroner system prevailed in Baltimore prior to 1872, Dr. Hiram L. Spicer being the last to serve as coroner for the entire city. After that time tnere was nnnnlntpfl a coroner for each police dis trict, four being appointed In 1872, one each r the Eastern, Middle, western ana boutn- m districts. As the police districts were increased new coroners were appointed to supply them. editor of itie lx.j The Reason Immigrants StlcK to The Cities And Fail To Go To The South. To the Editor of The Sex Sir: You have been emphasizing an important point with regard to immigration matters and the South in connection with the coming of Western and Southern Governors to Baltimore. "Desirable and thrifty immigrants" is not a phrase tha.t describes accurately the present immigration, judging either from statistics, or from what our Federal immigration officials and the recent Congressional Immigration Commission have to say about It. During the past 10 years about 10,000,-000 aliens have come to the United States. Why Is it that on an average less than 10 per cent, of that numDer go to me oiaies and Territories west of the Mississippi and south of the Potomac rivers? Out of 1,198,037 aliens entering tne United States in 1910 only 15,476 were "farmers," and only 226,380 could be classified as "farm laborers." That's less than a fifth. Over half of that million and a fifth did not have enough to pay Its own passage to this country, and was "assisted to come." Whence did the bulk of it come and why? From Southern Europe and Western Asia, where even those who regard themselves as peasants and farmers do not live upon the land they cultivate, but In ghettos and in congested centres, going out to the land before sun-up and returning about sundown. They would not stay In South Carolina for a number of reasons. In the first place, they- regarded "folks as more company than stumps" and longed for the city's glare. In the next place, they could do better, in their opinion, in the city, whether at day labor around the mills and factories or by the piece In the sweatshops. I am Interested in cotton in South Carolina, and am familiar with the average wages paid in the cotton mills and on the plantation. Ninety cents is about the average for day labor around the mill towns, and $10 to $15 is the range in the cottonnelds. Thev are able to get two or three times that much in the big cities. But of most importance is the fact that the present new immigration does not come to stay. It comes merely to save up by parsimony a few hundred dollars with which to return to its native land. Durin the past few years somewhere between 40 and 70 per cent, of tae number coming here has gone back with its earnings, taking out, according to the Immigration Commission, a minimum of $250,000,000 annually. Why have the foreign steamships shifted the source to Southern Europe and W estern Asia? Simply because the traffic that comes and returns is more profitable. Hear what Herr von Pillis, of the German Govern ment, says : "We view with great satisfac tion the fact that few Germans now emigrate to America, which is due not so much to the fact that conditions have improved here as to the fact that your Immigrant labor kas been mercilessly cheapened." The Immigration Commission makes the point quite clear, as does the Federal Imml-, gration Bureau, that bad immigration tends to keep good Immigration from coming, and before anything can be done in the way of distribution there must be some wise and strong selective immigration laws and administrative policy, as other new countries like Canada, Australia, South Africa, etc., have. ' j. h. Patten. Washington, Nov. 30. Replies To Mr. Hopkins And Recounts The Good Things He Says The New School Board Has Done. To the Editob op Thb Sex Sir: Mr. Luther W. Hopkins, in your issue of November 30, makes a very wild attack on the present School Board, but in doing so he, of course, unintentionally misrepresents the situation, as well as is grossly unfair to this present School Board. I have read the article by School Commissioner Biggs, who did not Btate that this board was now inexperienced. He stated that the members accepted the office without experience, and very naturally so. Is Mr. Hopkins aware that this new board accepted this office when the entire school system in Baltimore was more or less demoralized, the teachers almost In open rebellion against the unfair methods and favoritism of the Van Sickle regime ; the old School Board so quarrelsome that members even wanted to engage in fisticuffs on the street to settle the differences in the School Board room ; that some of the members of the old School Board would not speak to each other when they met, and that these peculiarities of temperament among the old School Commissioners, together with cliques that had formed in different parts of the school system, were running the esprit de corps of the whole system, and demoralizing both teachers and scholars? Does he remember that this present School Board has been active in every cause for the betterment of the schools and protection of the scholars ; that they have given the teachers their much-needed raise In salary, which the old board refused them ; that they have elected three capable superintendents for the public school system ; that they are busy with the erection of two new schools ; that they have Inaugurated open-air classes for the tubercular scholars, better medical inspection In the schools, a more efficient system of fire drills has been insisted on, fire-escapes for the unprotected buildings ; that arrangements have been made for monthly disinfecting the public schools,' and general conditions have been improved ; that the teachers are better satisfied, and consequently doing better work, because these demoralizing troubles have departed? He should remember and acknowledge these things. Entente Cordiale. Dr. Sehurman Arraigned As Un-scientifle And The Referendum Upheld As Vindicated By Results. To the Editor of The Sun Sir: Cornell University is nothing if not scientific, but its president, Dr. Sehurman, seems to be very unscientific in his treatment of civic questions. Speaking of the referendum, he proclaims unproved assumptions in defiance of demonstrated facts. The referendum has "worked out" successfully 50 years In Switzerland and 10 years in Oregon. The general elections in England and Canada, dealing with reciprocity, home rule and the budget, are an application of the referendum. Mr. Sehurman does not give one reason why that which is good for the Swiss, the English and the people of Oregon may not be good for New Yorkers and Mary-landers. He considers the people fit to judge by direct vote between Mr. Taft and Mr. Harmon, but unfit to judge in direct primary between Mr. Taft and Mr. La Follette. Yet he gives no reason why they are fit In one case and unfit in the other. Against the opinions of living men who are students and experts in civic affairs he invokes the opinion of men who lived a century ago, and who knew nothing of changed conditions in the twentieth century. He inveighs against the will of the ma jority, in spite of the fact, demonstrated by the history of the United States, that the people, especially when there are millions of voters, are more likely to be right than small groups. In small groups, whether statesmen, bankers, scientists or churchmen, self-interest is often in conflict with the general welfare, whereas the larger the number of voters the nearer the approach between self-interest and the com mon good. The will of the majority is England's final court of appeal. And there is as much, justice and common sense in English government as in any country on earth. England has no Supreme Court or Constitution to nullify the people's will. The will of the majority as expressed at our Presidential and State elections during" the last 50 years has been safe and sound. In some instances, as in the slavery question and income tax, it has been much more enlightened and just than that of the Supreme Court. K. T. V. Baltimore, Nov. do.

TvrTTTT?p,Ti What crnrliintp of Har vard is working on the fourth dimension? The acting secretary of the faculty of arts and sciences of Harvard University answers this as follows: "I do not know of any graduate of Har vard who is working on the solution of the fourth dimension. W. J. Sidis, to whom no doubt you refer, was admitted to Har vard College in September, 1909, as a special student. He is still a student in the university." , COUNTRY. Will you tell me if there is a school that one may enter January 1 and take a course in domestic science, preparatory to teaching? Give the length of such a course and the approximate cost. I do not know of any school that you can enter in January to take a normal course in domestic science. At the Teachers' College, Columbia University, New York, the work of the school of household arts is arranged on the half-year basis, so that it would be possible to enter in the middle of the year and arrange a satisfactory program of work. The second half of the present year will open February 7. Students entering in the middle of the year should register on or before that date. Twe years of study is required to secure a diploma. Tuition for students in regular standing Is $150 a year. A comparative statement jot students' expenses for the academic year, based on students' estimates, and Including board, room, laundry, tuition and incidental expenses, is from $586 to $644. If. you will send a stamped, self-addressed envelope, we shall send you an application blank of this school. Other schools which give a teacher's course In domestic science are the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, N. YM and the Drexel Institute, Philadelphia. If you wish to enter either of these schools in September, send a stamped, self-addressed envelope for full information concerning them. W. B. W.

GEMS FROM THE POETS. THE LILY AND THE ROSE. By William Cowpeh. Within the garden's peaceful scen Appeared two lovely foes. Aspiring to the rank of queen The Lily and the Rose. The Rose soon reddened into rage, And, swelling with disdain, Appealed to many a poet's page To prove her right to reign. The Lily's height bespoke command, A fair, imperial flower ; She seemed designed for Flora's hand, The sceptre of her power. This civil bickering and debate The goddess chanced to hear, And flew to save, ere yet too late, , The pride of the parterre. "Yours is," she said, "the nobler hue, And yours the statelier mien : And, till a third surpasses you, Let each be deemed a queen." MORAL. Let no mean jealousies pervert your mind ; A blemish in another's fame to find ; Be grateful for the gifts that you possess, Nor deem a rival's merit makes yours less.

"Why didn't you get a younger turkey?" demanded the husband. "I told the dealer I was rather green." faltered the young wife, "so he advised me to take an old, experienced bird." Realism In Baliylon. From Ldppincott's Magazine. "A great deal of fun has been poked at the realistic school of art," says a New York artist, "and it must be confessed that some ground has been given to the enemy. "Why, there recently came to my notice a picture of an Assyrian bath, done by a Chicago man, and so careful was he of all the details that the towels hanging up were all marked 'Nebuchadnezzar' in the corner, in cuneiform characters." Interested In Father. From Judge. "The school mistress Is Interested in you, dad." "How's that?" "Why today, after she'd told me six times to sit down and behave myself, she said she wondered what kind of a father I had." Literary Hod-Carriers. From the Washington Post. John H. Finley, president of the College of the City of New Y'ork, was talking to a group of librarians at the State Library Convention. "Too many books at the present time," he said, "are written solely to sell. Their authors try to make us think that they are producing literature, but they can't fool us. They only fool themselves. These men might produce literature if they would just put a little more sincerity Into their work, but, as It is, they remind me of Jake Mc-Masters. " 'You're working very hard today, Jake, me son, said a friend. .'How many hods o' mortar, in the name of heaven, have ye carried up that ladder since startin' time? " 'Hush, me lad,' said Jake, with a wink. 'I'm foolin' the boss. I've carried the same hodful up and down all day, and he thinks I'm workin'." SCHOOL OF JOURNALISM SITE Part Of South Field At Columbia Will Be Taken For It. It became known at Columbia University yesterday that the site at the southeast corner of Broadway and One Hundred and Sixteenth street had been selected for the structure which will house the $2,000,000 School of Journalism endowed by Joseph Pulitzer. WTork of excavation, it is now thought, will be begun as soon as the plans are drawn up, and men were engaged yesterday In making borings to determine how deep the rock formation of the plot is. It had been understood that the school would be built on the present site of the small brick Faculty Club, at the northeast corner of Broadway and One Hundred and Sixteenth street, but it has been decided to take instead a slice of the westerly end of South Field, where the Colum-bla athletic teams now play their games.
