91RITOKIJ®! MELVIN, STEELE . JOHNSON EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 26 ARMAMENTS AND PENSIONS. The New York Journal is waging, au incessant war on the pension c\ trwvagtiuco of this c o u n t r y , au handles the question w i t h o u t gloves In a late issue the f o l l o w i n g editor ial appeared w h i c h will give on readers some idea of the eomparsion of our a n n u a l pension o u t l a y wit! the military and naval expenses o the greatest poweis of the world "Americans are accustomed to fe licitate themselves in a superio way upon their freedom from th military b u r d e n s t h a t are c r u s h i n g t h e suffering people of E u r o p e They wonder hoiv m u c h loifger the jealous powers of the Old World cau .'stagger under the loads of thei enormous armies without b a n k ruptcy. They are looking for early war, leading to a general dis armament, as the easiest way to us ctvpe from an intolerable s i t u a t i o n Unquestionably the European mil itary burdens are heavy. Italj spends 011 her army $54,000,000 a year--over a t h i r d as m u c h _ as we spend a n n u a l l y for pensions. The Austrian army costs $70,000,000 :i year, or nearly half our pension bill Great Britian pays $90,000,000 foi m i l i t a r y purposes, which is three fifths of the a m o u n t of our a u u i i a 'pension o u t l a y . G e i m a u y i s taxed $120,000,000 a year to support (lie most efficient army in Europe, oi four-fifths of our pension expenditures. The extravagantly m a i n t a i n ed French army absorbs no less t h a n $138.000.000 a year, which is a b o u t eleven-twelfths of our pension nc- counl. Finally, Russia, with ; ·wasteful administration and no pub lie opinion to call it to account, spends $142,000,000 a year iu supporting the largest army iu the world, which is only from $3,000,000 to $12,000,000 less than we shal spend nest year in pensioning t million people, more or less remotely connected w i t h a war that ended before h a l f of the present i n h a b i t ants of the United States were born. The accompanying diagram i n d i - cates t h o relation between our pension expenditures and the m i l i t a r y expenses of the great powers of Europe: Italian nrmy __ Austrian army ____ British army ^_^__ German urmy French arm\ ^^^^_^___ Russian-army ______ U. S. pensioners ,^»^^_«i_^_ This eomparsion does not show be foil extent to which o u r military burdens exceed those of t h e s l j p r g e r - ing nations of the Old .World, for in addition to our army of pensioneis we have to support another army of soldiers. If the cost of army, n a v y and pensions for all countries combined it would be found that the American expenditures for warlike purposes were by far the heaviest in the world. THE POINTS AT ISSUE- In a series of articles in the past -few months the JOURNAL has con. trastcd the workings of the respective tariff laws in force since 1800-the McKinley law, the Wilson law and the JDingley law. The points at issue were which of those laws have come nearest to supplying the need- · ed revenue for the government's expenses and what effect each has had upon the nation's industries and the masses of our people. The figures we haye used in m a k i n g the comparisons have been taken from t h e official documents from the govern-^ ment printing office, chiefly from t h e r«port of the Secretary of the Treasury, which may bo regarded as incontrovertible authority on the government's finances. I t i s e h o w n by these figures that at the end of the fiscal year on the 30th of June, 189-4 --the McKinley law in force--that a " deficit of $69,000,000 existed. And it is shown not less clearly by the same a u t h o r i t a t i v e figures that at 'the close of the fiscal years d u r i n g which tbe Wilson law was iu force, June 30, 1805, tho deficit was $42,"000,000; t'une 30, 1896, $25,000,000, ' and Jnue 30,1897, $17,000,000. For the receipts of the government since '· the close of the last fiscal year the - m o n t h l y reports from the Treasury are authority. They show that the customs receipts have fallen far short of those for a corresponding period in either of the three years next preceding this. The internal revenue receipts have-somewhat increased. Yet the receipts altogether are above $50,000,000 less than expenses for the nine mouths already past. We have not only shown what provision was. made by each party^for the income of the government, but the record of each in expending it. The appropriations by the different Congresses speak eloquently for the economy of the Democrats whilst in power, and the extravagance of the Republicans is by the same means .made so obnosionsly prominent t h a t the most casnal observer may jaote it. Tbe side issne that has been injected into the discussion, to wit, i h a t t h e issue of $262,000,000 in bonds was to cover deficiencies caused by the Wil. son law, is self-iefuting, w h e n it is shown that the first issue was made five br six months before the Wilson law came into existence, and the remainder from four tosix m o n t h s a f t e r Tits passage, when the deficiency had *otreached$25,000,000. A l l t h e d e f i - «its Of the-Wilson law put together were but $85,000,000. If used for purpose $177,000,000 would be left for the deficits of the Dingley law. It is also a well-known fact t h a t t h e p i c in i n in on the labtitsneot bonds offset t h e interest on them for three yeais. Our conclusion t h a t tho Democrats a d m i n i s t e r the government's affairs more economically, therefore more in the interest of tho people, is shared by a vast m a j o r i t y , who will speak with no u n c e r t a i n tones in their ballots n e x t November. EDITORIAL NOTES. A great effort is being mado iu in the House to repeal the tax on moitgages. This will be a long step backwards, and it is to be hoped by everybody except the rich, wli are anxious to escape the pay men of their just proportion of tuxes, tha it w i l l not be taken. Sam Joues has announced himsol a candidate for|governor of Georgia but has not put out a platform yet The great advantage in his cam paign will be that he will need t( hire no s t u m p speakers, being abl to attend to all that business him self. According to the big headlines in some of the sensational daily papers we are on the verge of,orengagedin a bloody war already. VANITY COMES IN MANY GUISES. To .the Editors of the J O U R N A L : One of the most insidious evils to w h i c h poor humanity is made sub jeut is vanity. It conies to us in al forms and sometimes, like Satan, disguised as an angel of light. To begin with, thero is our i n d i v i d u a l or personal vauity, a first-rate t h i n g to have when it doesn't show too much. But here is where the trouble is, and whatever may basaid against the "better art of hiding" may we not consider that a trifle of conceal- m e n t iu this regard may help to give a fellow a little grip of himself u n t i l lie grows old enough,or wise e n o u g h , to get a better hold. Now, each of us have our own besetting f o r m of conceit. With some it is a silk hat, emaculate linen,patent leather shoes, and so forth; others "care for none of these things," but sit a r o u n d the store stove, with their heels on it, spit all over the floor, and out-brag everything in s i g h t -- t h e s e with other manifold variations. Then, we h a v e f a m i l y pride (blood so called), which, however, is not so very unseemly in this country, but which is a public calamity in some lands. And there is professional pride--the conceit of tho specialist, particularly the successful specialist, who is proud of the fact that he ignores humanity in general and maintains an exalted e.tclusiveness that, strange to say, commands an immense regard from the very "lower orders" t h a t they disdain, or, at least, look clown upou. Then we have a na- ional pride, a most excellent virtue when used to good purpose, which, iwwever, is not always. Very of ten so-called patriotism is merely a disparagement of other nations and peoples, a calumny of their motives, a contempt for their institutions and heir powers, and henoe we have history and all the troubles and loodshed that implies. We have political arrogance that calls the opposite party all the names hat are outside the dictionary, and D 'ives uo credit for either sense or lonesty to any scheme that its part i c u l a r leaders fail to endorse. This 'orni of the trouble, though, seems to be dying out among the American people, and is only periodically jral- vunized iuto active campaign exist- o-nce by the excited utterances of the sensational press for trade purposes. Last, but not least, we have ·eligious pride--the Chinese "heathen in his blindness" who massacres ill foreign devils; the "mild Hindoo" who would rather die of the bubonic plague than allow a European physician to attend him. Mark Twain tells us of his Mohammedan friend v\ ho was so agreeable, but when they had to drink out of the same cup his agreeable friend had to spread his reasy old robe over his face and drink through that to prevent his sacred lips from contaminating with those of a "Christian dog." Such is religious pride-"If it comes nearer to oiirsel' It's mora the pity," But it does, though. Oh, yes; it takes other forms--more (esthetic forms, sometimes. There is tho ·ride of great and ancient religious name and ostentatious ceremonial amid world-wide and multitudinous idhorenee, lofty and serene in the exaltation of rapt melody, in a setting of stained glass "shedding a dim religious light." And then we lave the cruder forms, some of w h i c h are quite a fad of late, aud iiivo received through their leaders the condescending patronage of the national Congress and some of the State governors--for instance the drum, and t a m b o u r i n e display in the treet procession w i t h loud egotistical harangues in public places, witlr 'amen, hallelujah" accompaniment. These forms of address are chiefly ·emarkable for the iteration of the irst personal pronoun. What the i r s t personal proueun thought, said and did, is the c u l m i n a t i n g point of iiterest. What the first pcisonal H-OUOUU was, is, and will be, is the ulsome themo for admiration, and u tearful wonder all the assembly u tnrn testify to be either there, or getting there, where the first por- onal pronoun occupies the whole ilissful horizon, and pity is bestow- d on the poor sinner ou the back cats who may never reach the de- ectablc land. Now, as before remarked, self-appreciation is a good t h i n g . It's a sort of s t i f f st.ueli tha holds a m a n u p amid nil the tryiiii, c o n d i t i o n s of l i f e that t e n d to flooi him d o w n , and wet-blankot his of foits. Sclf-iespect is moral back bone; blatant self-assertion i s f a u a t i cism--mental, moral aud spiritua poison, for which the a n t i d o t e i education combined w i t h conunoi sense. The more a knows tli smaller he feels. Wide t e n d i n g broad c u l t u r e , up-to-date in forma, tiou, c o m m u n i o n with the might} dead in their still living works and beyond all the study oE th sacred Scriptures will teach one t k n o w his utter n o n i m p o r t a u c e "When I consider Thy heavens, th work of Thy fingers, the suu, moon aud stars that Thou has ordained What is man that Thou art miudt'u of him," says the Psalmist. An then the first personal pronoun mus be suppressed. Even in privat conversation the capital "I" grow irksome with too frequent use; ii a public address it is an infliction and in an assembly for the consid eration ot spiritual things it is un warranted aud inexcusable, so granc and glorious, so vast and o v e r w h e l m itig is the other subject in this fieli for our contemplation. But c u l t u r and correction require some t h o j g h aud some effort and it is tuucl easier to "whistle and jig;" and so long as it is taught that "reliction' and "faith" consist iu a slif shot neglect of all the rules f o u n d neces sary to the acquirement of all othei branches of knowledge, so long wil we have slouch braggadocio at som public leligious meetings, so called aud the "sluggard will still be wisei iu his own conceit than seven men t h a t can render a reason."

In v i e w of the gciiiM-al i n l c r e s now boinj* t a k e n in the m a t t e r o p u b l i c roadb the f o l l o w i n g f r o m th Missouri Experiment Station wil be read w i t h interest: The Missour E x p e r i m e n t Station has m a d e test with t h e o r d i n a r y n a r r o w - t i r e d wheel and w i t h six-inch tires, on raacadai: streets, gravel aud d i r t roiids in a conditions, on meadows, p a s t u r e stubble and plowed fields, both we aud dry, B u l l e t i n No 50, of th s t a t i o n , by Director H. J. Waters gives the results of these tests. Th broad tires pulled materially lighte ou the macadam street aud th gravel roads. Also on dirt roads ii all conditions, except when soft o sloppy on tho sin face, underlaid by hard road-bed, and w h e n the m u c was very deep a n d sticky. In bot of these conditions the narrow tire pulled considerably lighter. Itshoul be boruo iu m i n d , however, that th roads are in theso c o n d i t i o n s for comparatively short period o£ t i m e aud this at seasons when t h e i r us has naturally been reduced to th m i n i m u m . The tests on meadows pastures, stubble laud, corn lane and plowed ground iu every coudi tiou, from dry, hard and firm, t very wet and soft, show, w i t h o u t « single exception, a large saving in dratt by the use of the broad tires The b u l k of tho h a u l i n g done by tli farmer is ou tho f a r m , iu hauling feed from the fields aud h a u l i n g , manure from the bams, etc. The actual tonnage hauled to market i i n s i g n i f i c a n t in comparison with t h a t hauled about the farm, iuas m u c h as a large proportion of the products of tho average farm is no bent to market in the f o r m of live stock or its products. It is clear!; shown by these experiments that in many instances wheio the narrow t i r e is very i n j u r i o u s to the road o field, the broad tire proves positive ly beneficial when the same load is h n u l e d . When it is considered therefore, that the averago d r a f t of the broad tire is materially less than tho narrow tire, and that the i n j u r y done to the roads and farms by th n a r r o w tiio can be almost w h o l l y corrected by the use of the wide tires, there remains no longer any good reason for the use" of the nar row-tired wagons. These erperi raents f u r t h e r indicate that six inch «s is the best width of tho for the f a r m and road wagons and thai both axles should be same l e n g t h so t h a t the front and rear wheels run in the same track. A GREAT SENSATION IN DELAWARE William N. Boggs, d e f a u l t i n g paying teller of the First National Bank of Dover, arrived in Wilmington Saturday and put himself in the custody of the United States Marshal. It is stated that Boggs is ready to tell tho complete story oj tho looting of the b a n k , and also to reveal whatever outside collusion lie had iu making away with about $100,000 of tho bank's money. Iu connection with Boggs' return Harry A. Richardson, president of t h e bank, Saturday lodged complaint before United States Commissionei Smith, in accordance with which warrants were issued for four prorni- l e n t citizens of Kent for aiding and abetting Boggs in his work. These citizens are E. T. Cooper, of M i l - ord, formerly of Dover; Ex-Sheriff Amos Cole, of this city, formerly of Dover; Thomas S. Clark, and Charles L. Butler, of Dover. Tho c o m p l a i n t of President Richardson alleges that theseparties,aided andabetted Boggs :o loot' tho bank. The a m o u n t for which each is charged with being rosponsible is as follows: Cooper, $23,000; Clark,$4,000; Cole,$1,420.63; Butler, $188.21. Upon the strength of these com- j l a i u t s the warrants were served last night. Tho defendants vere arrigned before United States Commissioner Smith at the Federal B u i l d i n g today. Through their counsel all entered a plea of not guilty to the c o m p l a i n t , and asked or a postponement of the hearing u n t i l next Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. This request was granted jy the Commissioner, who held the neu in b a i l f o r t h e f o l l o w i n g a m o u n t s : Clark $6,000, Cole $2,500, Butler 2,000, Cooper $10,000. D u r i n g the hearings Boggs renamed in the custody of Marshal Short, in the latter's office. Dis- rict Attorney Vandegrit't positively ·efused to allow newspaper men to nterview Boggs. Boggs was later committed to Castle jail, w i t h o u t bail, for a tearing at a time to be fixed later. t will probably not be until the preliminary hearing of tho defendants next Saturday.-- Wilmington Ex- Jiange of last Saturday.
