The impression prevails, and President Harding at the time of his visit to the canal is said to have received the same impression, that the 'government is spending in the Canal Zone rather more lavishly than it should spend. This would be a natural state of affairs, when the history of the enterprise is taken into account. While the canal was not built with lavish expenditure, expense was always a sec- tary Hughes that the American prisoners be released before America takes any steps to feed the Russian starving, as a putting of the welfare of a very few before the lives of the many. If it be true; as intimated in some recent dispatches, that Mr. Hughes demands the surrender of only a few prisoners before relief work is begun, we think none too well of Mr. Hughes. We would rigorously insist that every American "prisoner in Russia to set free before one single pound of American food go as a charity into that country. Indeed, it would .be proper to go further than this, in view of what we know about the thousands of Russians who are in prison unjustly, and demand the opening wide of all the Russian prisons, for, where one criminal might escape, a hundred innocent men and women would go free. There would be justice in demanding that Lenine and Trotsky be thrown from power and the soviet abandoned before we feed anybody in Russia. The Russian famine is the world's opportunity to tame the Russian wild beast. Any proposition to feed the starving Russians, no matter how individually innocent millions of them may be, without such action as will secure the world's safety, is sentimental ' weakness.

A CHANCE TO TAME THE BEAST ! . One of the interesting features of .'the situation in Russia is the attitude of the bolshevistic mind. ' The. Russian famine is distinctly the rwufof that type of applied socialism which is called bolsbevlsin. Nor should we fail to insist upon the fact that the' theories of bolshevisni in no way differ from orthodox socialism as taught by. all its prophets from Karl Marx down. Bolshevik is a Bussian word which merely means majority, and is applied because it was the majority wing of the Russian socialist party that came to power under Lenine and Trotsky, h Russia, no matter what her troubles In the past, has not been a country of famine. Her agriculture and industry were not well developed under the czars nor yet her transportation system; her common people were not accustomed to luxury and the majority of them were very poor, but hunger, while perhaps not unknown, never reached, -famine. Socialism simply ruined Russia, from end to end; put discord in the place of peace; established conditions in which there is no incentive to work and for multitudes small opportunity to work; attempted to feed a great army of official parasites who did nothing of value in return for their living; destroyed wealth, capital and intelligence. The result was inevitable. 1 Socialism not only did this in Russia but attempted to spread the same destruction over the world. True, 'Moscow now disclaims any intent to foster revolutions in other countries, but both the Intent and the attempt have been real enough in the past ; and a great part of the socialist leaders in Western Europe and the United States worked in harmony with that intent. If Bergei and Debs and their associates, great and small, had had their way, what has coine to pass in Russia would haveybeen accomplished here; : And now . these lunatics reach out their hands and say, in so many words: America MUST feed us. 1 Why? Mercy might dictate the feeding of a starving wild beast, captured and harmless ; . but you would be insane to feed wolves that they might have more strength to raid the sheep-fold or carry off the children from the dooryard. There ,1s nothing to show that the Russians,;. saved from starvation, would be in any way different from the Russians -who have planned world destruction. Certainly, the ruling crowd in Russia shows no signs for repentance, and, if ' we feed anybody in Russia, it will require great care to preventtheseifrom being feed first , . We read that Russian representatives in Central Europe protest the "inhumanity" of the demand of Secre Extra!

Life has such a Subtle war Of forniing roses, out of clay; Of taking tears that seemed in vain ' And making of them April rain; Of getting from a heedless rafter Echoes of dead bits of laughter; Of welding in a sunset sea Lost loveliness and imagery; Of making out of crawling things Butterflies with airy wings. Life has such a subtle way Of turning darkness into day; Or bringing music, ocean-old, To newness of a tale untold; And then, grown jealous of its trust, Of changing roses back to dust.

It is by endeavoring to sldrk diflienit things instead of overcoming them that men become weaklings. To envy another is to confess yourself his inferior. Self-confidence is sometimes mistaken for egotism, but more often egotism is mistaken for self -confidence. Culture consists largely In the ability of people to enjoy what is good. People who deserve the least are usually the most discontented with what they have. . The bert way to get even for a real or finely injury is to forge about It. The person who takes it into his head to be an avenger is In for a stormy and useless existence. ' Life is too short for reTenges.

When you wore a carved peach-stone on your watch chain! kmdary consideration In the building operations, particularly where pay and maintenance of American employees were concerned. The same system appears to continue in force. The number of employees retained is large In proportion to the amount of work done; the pay rate is high, and the government spends a great deal of money in making employees comfortable, beyond the immediate demands of housing and sanitation. The figures so far considered take no account of the cost of governing the Canal Zone. No published statistics treat of this but it takes quite a lot of Uncle Sam's money; AVe could probably save money at Panama, but the whole enterprise is small in comparison with the present magnitude of governmental finances and is far away and little attention is paid to It. This, at least, is very satisfactory : the canal is In successful operation and commerce Is flowing through it in bulk sufficient to entitle it to be regarded as of great importance to the world. THAT OIL TARIFF The cutting of the proposed tariff upon crude oil out from the draft of the new tariff law, now in committee in Congress, may have been proper and in harmony with the financial welfare of the country, but the ground upon which it was done was sheer nonsense. We have a strong feeling that there Is altogether too little information about the oil question in general at Washington, particularly about the producer's side of the oil question; and, unfortunately, while the refining end of the industry takes pains to let Its views be known among national legislators, the producing end. in this as in other matters that would seem to be of vital interest, appears to be negligent. " The proposed tariff on crude oil was cut out in the name of conservation, the theory being that a tariff upon oil would prevent importation and. as a result, domestic oil sources would be the more quickly exhausted. The theory might be worthy of consideration, if it rested upon even the slightest substructure of fact, which unfortunately it wholly lacks. Whether it would be more to national advantage to buy oil abroad if this would stop drawing upon our own oil supplies is perhaps debatable; but the conservation of our domestic supplies would in no way result from importation. Nobody knows that fact better than the people who pleaded conservation before Congress. In the first place, the meeting of the world's demand for oil, in which our own demand is the chief factor, requires alt possible exploitation of American oil fields. Not enough oil can be found anywhere else in the world materially to relieve the demand upon oil production in the United States. In the second place, there is no intent on the part of the oil importers to attempt conservation of domestic oil. The only effect produced upon American oil by imported oils is found in the fact that such importation as is possible makes it easier to keep down the prices of domestic crude. If the thermometer is 100 above zero on the top of the Alps, these days, as they say it is, what is the use of climbing? After all, Governor Small of Illinois didn't dissapear so very much, but, if he had, it wouldn't have been much that disappeared. It is marvelous how many cases of loss of memory we have these days; but you will notice that, usually, the fellow who loses his memory is ac cused of doing something that nobody i would want to remember. !

Somehow, that last report Is sort of agreeable to believe. A Chicago judge who is said to have presided at two thousand divorce trials gives a set of rules for avoiding trouble In married life. If they are not good rules. It Is not for lack of opportunity to observe die einsea of guch trouble. The ex-crown prince of Germany wants to lecture in the United States.

Certainly, we can hardly afford any specially liberal terms that will make as pax for European armies and navies. ! I I I AUGUST j BRUNSWICK THE PANAMA CANAL Recently published reports assure us that the fiscal year just closed has witnessed the largest business ever enjoyed by the canal enterprise at Panama ; and, in spite of the supposed existence of a world-wide industrial and financial depression, more tonnage is passing through the "big ditch" than at any other time since its completion. The canal is serving not only the United States but the whole world. An analysis of the cargoes for a month shows that of the westbound traffic 64 percent originated on the eastern coast of the United States; 23 percent (in petroleum) came from Mexico; 7 percent from the United Kingdom and 5 percent from continental Europe. The destinations were as follows: .'1(3 percent to our west coast; 24 percent to the Far East; 20 percent to the South American west coast and 15 percent to Australia. The eastward traffic, which seems always to average heavier than the traffic to the west, originated as follows: 44 percent on the Pacific coast of the United States; 28 percent on the Pacific coast of South America; 12 percent in Australia and 10 percent in Hawaii. The, destination of this east-bound traffic was; 36 percent to American ports; 2S percent to the United Kingdom and 29 percent to continental Europe. .It will be noted" that in each case the percentage is not complete, indicating some scattering cargoes the origin and destination of which the report does not take into account. The report goes on to say that thi revenue from tolls for the year were just more than twelve and a quarter million dollars, which apiears to be a pronounced advance over 1020, the most favorable year up to that; time, when the total revenues fell just below ten million dollars; but the additional statement is made that these revenues fell four million dollars below the government's expenditures for the canal during the year. Items are not given with sufficient detail to enable the reader to determine just what this means. In recent years the revenues of the canal have slightly exceeded the actual operating expenses, and from the opening of the canal to ths close of the fiscal year, 1020, the total of revenues had fallen only two and a quarter million dollars below the total cost of operation.
