Mr. Kitchin speaking: \Wo have a tariff commission provMon In this bill. No Republican can vole against a bill with siich a provision In It. The Republican pint form tlemuiideil It twice. I mttst confess that until two or Hi roc months ago the Democratic party was opposed to n tariff commission.\ Laughter on the Kepubllcau side. Mr. Kitcuin:' \No IlepuhlU'un cittt vote against this bill except old l line reactionaries. Old tnrltT reform Doni-ocrat- s may object to It because in spots there Is Just n little too much Republicanism In It.\ Sir. KrrciiiN'fl present illluVultlea lllustrnte the disadvantages of gov- ernment by whim, sentimental Im- pulse and too clastic theory. Free trade delusions, honestly held, are admirable In comparl-o- n with the Kjiectacle afforded by a party pretend- ing to be convinced of the untleslrit-blllt- y of protection, but forced by Its time serving tactics. Its desire for a command of power of which It is unworthy, to give practical recogni- tion to the principle upon which American prosperity rests. The American Dead. \Carrlzal has given up n part of its American dead.\ If from the depths of ocean and from graves beyond our borders our murdered dead should be returned to us there Is hardly a city or town In the laud that would not hold a funeral During the past three years the number of Amer- icana who have fallen lctlms to lite weakness and vacillation of the present Administration runs Into the thousand. The making of war that Is not r aud keeping of eace that Is not peace Is a method of procedure that de- mands Its toll of human lives. When the advocates of Mr. Wilson's reelection assert that he has \kept us out of war\ let them consider the price that we have paid for the mainte- nance of u pseudo peace. President Wilson at the obsequies held in honor of tbe American murines killed at Vera Cruz delivered a most eloquent address. .That was a long time asp, and still our dead from Mexico are being returned to us. The Issue of the Sea Fight Off Jut- land llank. Since the naval engagement off Jut- land Bunk on May 31 a number of British merchant ships which from the beginning of the war hud been laid up In Baltic ports through fcur of capture by German war vessel have proceeded to their home ports. Their voyatfes afford Independent cor- roboration of the theory that tho in the tea light was with the British, and not with the Germans. Had tbe unquestioned valor of Teu- tonic commanders nml sailors In t hat battle actually miulo the Knlser \Ad- miral of the Atlantic,\ the (ermuii naval wutcli over the waters would not have been relaxed, us It seems to have been; and the fact that It Is not now as vigilant us It was, goes far to sustain the contention jf Admiral Jklxicoe that the victory rested with the fleet under his command. The Admiral's rcpoit contlrms the German contention that the British battle fleet w, engaged, which hud been questioned in some quarters It reveals, too, that non-ofllcl- commen- tators correctly Interpreted the strut-cn- y and tactics followed by Admiral Beatty at the opening of the engage- ment. Ills purpose was to bring an puemy superior to the forco under bis command Into contact with the lienvler fleet, to engage them until the other vessels could come up. This Jin accomplished, naturally nt heavy, though Justified, cost. Tho subsequent retirement of thu Germans to their base nloue prevented the British from annihilating the Kaiser's high seas licet, which from tho moment of Ad- miral JrxLicon's Junction with Ad- miral Bbatty'h command they were In a position to do. Admiral Jelltcof: puts the losses of tho Germans at twenty-on- e ships of 300,220 tons, against the British loss of 112,3.'.0 tons. This Is given as a conservative estimate; a mure liberal computation raises tho Germuu loss in WfiSd tons, 'Ska exact figure Set Oermany are) unlikely to be known before the end of the war; the Ger- man offlclut statements hare admit fedly been misleading and false, and their authors cannot expect their latest protestations of truthfulness to rllmlnato entirely the doubts rained by their enrller deceits. Ncutrnls who accepted the German assertion of a Krent triumph for their fleet have already revised their Judgment, and tin the later evidence will bo con- vinced that to the Brltlih navy be- longs tlio honor of a hard won ami Important success. Merman Thrift. According to Sparka-mr- , the Journal of the German savings banks, there have been more new accounts opeued In Herman saving banks In the second year of war than ever before. Re- ports Indicate an Increase of l!S8,Ouo accounts and an excess of dcpoMts ier withdrawals- of $G'J.\.000 This Is n marvel thoroughly char- acteristic of Germany, which bod at the beginning of 1013 more savings hank depositors than any other coun- try In the wwrld. The number of ac- counts In Germany was then nearly 23,000,000. Including postal savings, .tiipan had 21,000,000 savings debit- ors. .The United Kingdom enme next Willi 14,000.000 depositors, nnd France had about the stiine number. Tim Vnlted States stood fifth, If we take I ho tlguros for this country compiled ns of June 30, 1014, which showed about ll.oOO.OOO accounts. The overage amount for ench was n different story, showing much larger accounts In this country than In Germany. But the point Is that the habit of saving Is more wide- spread In Germany than among the people of any other large nation, probably, except France. What Hat This to Do With Hu- manity? We do not bellcvo the new treaty between Russia and Japan will en- gage the Interest of the Administra- tion at Washington. If John Hay were alive, and John Hay's policies were still operative, this compact would be regarded o of grave con- sequence. Tbe publication of Its terms would be nwulted with deep concern. But since the obligations devolving on the Chief Kxecutlve of Humanity have overshadowed the oathbound duties of the President of the United States tho door porter Mr. Hay set up to keep open the en- trance to Kasteru trade and Influence has been withdrawn. Mr. Hay, it will be recalled, sought to assure to American Industry and commerce opportunities equal to those enjoyed by the mnnufucturers and merchants of other countries. No such sordid purpose animates our present Administration. Indeed, were not the rash Americans who sought protection for their honorable enterprises In Mex- ico Informed that tbey were vulgar, profit seeking, unpatriotic, and gen- erally abominable? Moreover, It Is unlikely that the con- vention between Russia and Japan de- votes considerable space or attention to Humanity at large. We shall be surprised If It provides, for example, for the conservation of American trade In the regions It affects. Wc suspect that It will be a busluesnllke document. Inspired by a businesslike purpose, to attain a businesslike ob- ject, nnd tbe Incidental effect Its operation may have ou American labor and American capital cannot In rea- son be expected to appeal to Presi- dent Woodrow Wilson. Peace In Santo Domingo? Rear Admiral Gapkiiton and hls2,000 fighting men have apparently suc ceeded In bringing the Santo Domingo revolutionist Abias te a realization of the hopelessness of his campaign, aud enforced an agreement uuder which n peaceful solution of the troubles,, of the republic can be renched. Arias baa his choice between submitting to the scheme proposed by Admiral Capeb-to- n and lighting tho forces of the 1'nlted States; and as the art of note writing Is little understood In the navy, he was not long In reaching a pacific decision. The revolution thnt lias ended be- gan two months ago, and previous to Its conclusion the murines and sailors hud occupied practically the whole of the country, except Santiago, where the followers of Akiah Intrenched In n strong position. Apparently It Is the hone of the hulk of the population that an arrangement can be made under which the United States will undertake to malntnln tho stability of the Government. But this Is a sub- ject requiring studious consideration. because of the effect which our course with regard to the Caribbean Islands will have on our relations with Ihiro iean and South American Powers. Al ready we have assisted In the man sigeinent of the ttiiauces of Santo Do mingo, but without attempt at political domination, and our future conduct In this republic Is not to bo decided except after full discussion. Drink No Raw Milk. The fatal sore throat epidemic In which fifty persons have succumbed and \00 been mndo III In Bridge- port, Hartford and New Haven hns been traced to one dairy, the milk from which lias now been stopped. An unusual circumstance In this epi- demic Is the fact that tho disease has affected only prosperous families, who doubtless sought milk of tho best quality. In this case again experi- ence supports Tub Bun's contention that the use of raw milk Is perilous even If it be certified, becuuse Its pro- duction In the best conducted dairies does not preclude Infection from un- - household, In tbe mttker himself, or In unseen abrasions In the cow's udder, which nppenr far more fre- quently than hns been suspected by the authorities. Klght hundred cases of scarlet fever and 1,000 cases of dangerous tore throat In Boston In the course of three years, according to the Boston .Vcifcrtt oarf Surolcal Journal, hno been traced to milk. Wc recorded some yenrs ago an epidemic In the tuberculosis hospital nt Otlsvllle, whose milk was supposed to be under cnrefnl supervision. This originated In the family of one of tho milkers. Clean stables, cows and milk- ers prevent Infection from filth, and thus protect: but without pasteuriza- tion, Infectivo material, microscopic trcrhnps and therefore undetected, may bo present. That this material may be destroyed by proper pasteurization alone has been so often demonstrated that all tnllk should bo pasteurized unless microscopic examination Insures Its iinllty. The deaths mid cases of dangerotw Illness that have been re- ported In tho Connecticut epidemic wnrrant this conclusion. Nevertheless tho State Board of Health Is reported to have \sug- gested\ only thnt all milk sold In Bridgeport during the next three months he pasteurized. Would It not' be wiser and moro in accord with experience to enact an ordlnnncc per- manently enforcing pnstcurlr.atlon of nil milk sold In the State, slnco the Impossibility of protection by dnlry Inspection nlone Is established? Thk Sun repeats Its often reiter ated advice: \Drink no raw milk.\ A Veneiuelan-Peruvla- n Alliance. The report from Buenos Ayres that Venezuela and Peru have secretly concluded n potentially warlike alll-unc- o against Colombia and Ecuador bints at a more serious situation aris- ing from South American boundary disputes than at any time since 100S. At thnt time both Peru and Ecuador mobilized soldiers, and Brazil, Ar gentina nnd the United States offered to mediate. This offer Ecuador re- jected, and after tbe suggestion of settlement nt The Hague had failed the King of Spain renounced the role of arbitrator that had been assigned to him. The affair ended in fierce Internal disputes in Ecuador, which so absorbed tbe nation thnt Peru was left In occupancy of nearly all the disputed soil. If Ecuador possessed all the terri- tory she claims the republic would have an area of about 275,000 square miles : If Peru were to hnve her way this would be reduced to n beggarly 74,000 square miles. As to the claims of Colombia against Ecuador, C. Reginald Enock remarks that \any calculation Including the area claimed by that republic Is Impossible.\ Of about 104,000 square miles In dispute between Teru and Ecuador, Peru ac- tually occupies 45,000 square miles. Peruvian maps show a north nnd south boundary line running only a little wny cast of Quito. The usual map gives Ecuador a boundary with Colombia upon the River Napo. Ac- cess to tho Napo Is of the greatest Importance to Ecuador, slnco It Is n navigable stream communicating with the Amazon system of rivers. So far as rivers go Peru Is well off, for ocean steamships traverse the Maraflon River for several hundred miles, establishing n direct route to the Atlantic through Brazil. But tho Peruvian claims would cut off Ecua- dor completely from communication with the east and reduce her to n little strip between the Andes and the Pacific. As Ecuador Is already the smallest of South American repub- lics, with tho exception of Uruguay, she may be counted upon to resist with nil her might the aggressions of her more powerful neighbor. TH be good, says Carranza, If you'll lend me some money. Urging compulsory study of Span- ish, Secretary McAdoo says tho win- ning of Latin American friendship depends on the schools. Having re- cently returned from a visit to South America, the Secretary Is In a posi- tion to speak with authority on the cultivation of good will toward us among our neighbors to tho south, No wolf was ever frightened by tho rlze of a flock of sheep. .Vnor-ncnrr- Lkonard Woon, 17.

A few days ago President Wilson was asking If American employers would treat with fairness their men called to fight In the army of the Uni- ted States, The answer was generally In the affirmative. It now turns nut that post office clerks who Joined their eotnmnnds on tho President's call lost their pay for the fraction of tbe day they did not work, Mr. Wilson's solid, tude for the welfare of the men should Induce him to examine tho practices of all tha executive departments.

THE CASE OF THE MEN. X Statement From lha Dlsnatlsfled Railroad Workcri. Tha subjoined statement, setting forth the opinions of the dissatisfied railroad employrcs on a number of subjects In dispute between their union and the nianaKcrs of the com- mon carriers, was prepmed and sent to Tub Run by tho Transportation Brotherhoods' l'tibllclty Bureau: Anything for delay Is the vlsn of the rn roads In desllng with tho demand of the employees for n.n elwht hour day. Is charted In a statement Irsued y by the Tninsportntlon Brotherhoods. Italtronda are spendlnc hundreds of thousands of dollars tn nnk the public fur their support on a protmnltlon to refer the controversy to the Interstate Commerce Commission. The public should know that tho Interstate Commerce Commission only vry recently nnd on two different oc- casions has reported nt como lenKth nnd In conMilcmblo detail upon this very question. Its reports comprehend two widespread InvestlKatlons since 1910, and oro the result of attempts on tho part of tho rnllroadn to make use Of Increases In wages to Induce the com- mission to she Its consent to Increases In freight rates., The whole Subject of wanes was irone Into by the commission with much caro and tn great detail. The railway were fully represented by counsel nnd larco numbers of wit- nesses testified In their behalf. Mmlnent counsel appeared In behalf of tho opposition to the roads. The attorney of the comtnlkslon also participated In the proceedings, and pre- pared and presented for consideration a meat mass of statistical Information. After a full hearing of the Investi- gation upon all the facttt and circum- stances the commission held th.it there was no evidence before It which estab- lished the necessity for high rates. And again In 1914 the same elaborato and thorough Investigation Into the sub- ject of wskim as having a bearing on the necessity for Increased rates was held. This Federal tribunal said: \It Is In- teresting to note that notwithstanding wages constitute a large part of the transportation expense, this Item of ex- pense haa shown a relatively small ad- vance as compared with other groups.\ The commission called attention lo the fact tbnt elllctcncy of operation and management are the most Important things In the reduction of operating ex- penses, and as an Illustration the com- mission cited the statement of the gen eral superintendent of motive power of tho Pennsylvania Itallroad, who lessened tho cost of building locomotives between 1!(03 and 19t3, although the rate of wages Increased nearly 40 per cent. The omclal utterances of the Inter- state Commerce Commission answer au- thoritatively questions raised by tho railroads In their opposition to the pres- ent movement of the railway brother- hoods for an eight hour work day for employees In freight train service. These questions have been raised by the railroads, and by the roads through the United States Chamber of Com- merce, solely to confuse and perplex the public mind, and In an endeavor to pre- vent the American people from securing a clear perspective of the social and economic significance of the establish- ment of a shorter woik day for roma 350,000 train employees. Itallroad officials well know that the Interstate Commerce Commission has no power to fix the rate nf wages after an Investigation of thu sul'Jut, and the whole controversy would, after an In- vestigation, be In the saino condition as It Is at the present moment. Should, however, the Interstate Com- merce Commission recommend the grant- ing of the demands of tho employees, the commission would automatically b-- j held responsible for any Increase In operating expenses resulting from tho granting of the demands ; therefore would be compelled to assent to an In- creased freight rate, which Is perhaps tho very thing that the ralltoads are trying to securo out of this controversy. CATTLE FROM VENEZUELA. Views of a Former Consul at Puerto Cabcllo. To the Editor or The Pun Sir; Th opinion of Dr. II. J. Splnden ns to the possibilities of cattle raising for the United States In Venezuela, as reported In The Sun of July 6, Is confirmed by observations I made during a period spent In Puerto Cabcllo, over ten ears' ngo. At Unit time Venezuela was ship- ping cattle to Cuba, to replenish the herds destroyed during the wasteful operations of that Island's struggle, for Independence. Several steamers would sail every week when the expoit move-me- was nt Its height, carrying 7nn, 800 or 1,000 head of c.ittlo each, from that port, Tho cattle came from the table hinds of the Interior, being driven thtou'jh the town by the native vmiueros or cattle men, and wero generally of small1 size, resembling the Teas lueed. At! Unit time the export of cattlo was n monopoly, the sola concession having been granted by the Castro tiov eminent to a svnillcnte headed by Central ,ln.m Vicente Oomez, then of the country. Since then General Homes has served as President of Venezuela and Is still counted as tho strongest political factor In tho country. Any development of the cattle raising propo- sition would probably have to take Into consideration past precedents affecting the Industry In order to nvold running against a snag. Equal rare should be taken In enter-- 1 Ing Into any railroad enterprise from Puerto C'abello to Marians, nod the his- tory of tho railroads already built with English and (ierman capital to Valencia and Caracns may be studied with profit to American Investors. Forolgn Investors nre too apt to un- derrate the ability and acumen of South American (lovernments when seeking concessions, and to bile off more than they can chew, Then conies a hurry call for help from tbe homo fioverninont, and International complications.

Mr, Wilson said he rerretted the fact that Judges had re- quired \to be made to Me that labor w as not a commodity.\ This remark brought him great naturally, and It will bring him a certain class of votes.

Another Intelligent Man's View of the Same Remarkable Article. To the Editor or The Sun Sir: Two columns of The Sun's valuable spare on the subject of Woodrow Wilson's mental hygiene, as presented by Dr. A. E. I'. Rockwell of Worcester, Mass., appears to me a sheer waste of effort, especially when designed to set forth the Incapacity of a Presidential candidate. All such discussions of what The St.'.v calls \psychologic normalities and aberrations\ are unprofitable. In a bulky volume published a few years ago by a New York physician the writer deals with the mental processes govern- ing the actions of the most famous char- acters tn history, his conclusion being that alt from the Saviour of Mankind down to recent times belonged to the paranoiac class. In view of the Immense research necessary for the production of this book and the unqualified judgment of the author, tho question was asked bv a reviewer at the time of Its appearance whether the discoverer of these revela- tions ( ?) was not himself one of the abnormal type to which he had given so much attention. Dr. Rockwell's mental analysis of Mr. Wilson's mental attltudo may be cor- rect. The mental attitude of the public, however. Is not susceptible to the pres- entation of arguments of this kind In Influencing the views of voters. Therefore his disqualification when It comes to dealing with all psychologic phases, especially as regards the Influ- encing of voters. Isaac Marke.vs. New York, July 7. FROM THE CENSORS.

THOSE ENGLISH ACTORS. Another llllter Attack on the Alleged \Slackers\ Here With Us. To thk llniTon op Tun Son Kir; Will-Ihi- ii Uraham llrowne's defence of ICtig-lls- h actors here asserts that ho \person- ally doesn't know half n dozen men who nro of suitable ago and lit lo enlist.\ He either has a strangely limited theatric il acquaintanceship or else he believes that tho public at largo will accept his slate-me- nt unquestioned, and Unit those of bH own profession who know better will not tumbles to challenge It, I think It even possible that W. flraham Browns might bo able to muster the \half dozen\ he speaks of from the two recent casts In which bo blmelf figured. One visit to the recent Allied llazaar would have fIiovmi numerous oung, nble bodied Ungllsh actors mak- ing mountebanks of themselves. That cause, could well have spared them, young and old, for a real man's work on the nrlng line or for home defence. And they had the effrontery to carry on their buffoonery surrounded by the ac- cusing posters which their country had buued to stimulate recruiting. On this samo occasion It was amusing to read the New York newspapers' praise for certain Kngllsh actresses' success In recruiting, while their own husbands stay In this country and continue to piny heroes for the movies. I know of Kngllsh actors here possessing valuable property In Kngland who bewail the fact that they can't do their usual summer- ing there, and upon being asked why not they do not hesitate to say they are afraid lest the British Government hold them for homo defence and so prevent them fulfilling engagements here. These nt least oro filrlv honest and do not sicken us with tho painfully weak excuses by which others seek to cover their greed, lack of patriotism or cowardice. To have \hands too Soft lo carry n rifle,\ \afraid of losing a hand or finger which would spoil me for the stage,\ debts and family responsibilities, arc only n few of the excuses which have been given me. Another rnrre nondent writing on th same subject complains that the artisan class of Kngllshtm n here aro not termed \slackers.\ I should like to remind him that these urually settl\ In this country and become citizens, while tbe Kngllsh actor here Is ever ready to parudo his Ilrltlshness, makes capital out of it. and as noon as his season Is over usually takes thejlrst tioat back, spends his sum- mer \knocking\ America and Americans, and then returns to this country for his fall engagement. No one questions the fact that actors have left America In order to \do their bit\ and have given their lives In doing it. but how does that excuse thoso who have remained here during the last two years or thoso who havo crowded here since the war atarted? It Is to be hoped that England after the war will refuse to recognize these sons and will strip them of their boasted heritage, that of being Kngllsh- - niPn. K. PAULSEN. New York, July T. FOR THIRSTY HORSES. The Automobile Has Not Made Water- ing Troughs Unnecessary. To Tlir. Editor or The Sun Sir; Now that the hot weather Is upon us, many are asking what Is to be done this sum- mer for the toller of the streets, the working horse. To the compassionate the dally s'.gl'.t of horses with froth covered mouths and panting sides is most distressing. Means are on every hand by which humans can quench their thirst, but with the exception of some watering stations maintained by the S. P. C. A. and in New York the Woman's Keaguo for Animals, there Is no water In sight for the thirsty horse. Everything Use is closed. Stop to consider how It Is to be parched on a hot day and then to be obliged to keep on working continuously In the sun and heat, from morning until night, without a drop of water, it is not only the shutting off of tho water but the cruel and unnecessary restrictions put upon the watering places opened by tno r. a., wnerc every precaution Is exercised to keep iresh water running nnd where one Alderman sahl he would not do ntr.uu :o drink himself.

Correct Diet and Intestinal CIranllnfM Urged lo Prelect the Yonng. To the Editor or The Sun Sir.' Ths real cause of Infantile paralysis Is rarety mentioned. Tho germs enter through the nobo or mouth and lodge In tho alimentary canal, especially In tho colon. If the young children were through and through clean, there would not bo nny epidemic. Dr. Kellogg of Rattle Creek asserts that every person, young nnd adult, can gain Immunity through any epidemic spreading by germs If his alimentary canal Is kept clean front end to end, Oermn or bacilli cannot develop or breed In the Intestines except they find a fcrtllo soil to grow In. Seventy-liv- e per cent, of all people, oung or ntiutt. have not tho tcmotest Idea of what In- ternal hvcletie means nnd Is! they are as a ruin morn or Uwh constipated or half constipated. Ynnnr children from weaning are mostly fed with pappy food and In con- sequence the majority of them between 1 and Z years are more or less rarau-pate- d, and their clogged up. unclean colons form tho soil for the germs of Infantllo paralysis. They nro ab- sorbed In the blood, and through this find their final lodgment In the gray matter of tho spinal cord. If the chil- dren were fed right there would not be any serious epidemic. This In the main nolnt. All the rules given out from the Hoard of Health are necessary, but to no avail wnen mo diet Is not attended to. Scores of phy sicians, nurses and food inspectors are at work against the epidemic, but how many of them have thorough knowlcdgo of scientific diet nnd cooking? The dancers from food eaten raw don t exist If nil vegetables Intended to be- - eaten uncooked nro for a short timo (four or live minutes) Immersed in com water wherein 6 per cent, peroxide of hydrogen Is dissolved. This will kill every possible germ In the vegetables. (live thorough Instructions to the mothers about the necessity to adopt a right diet, how to feed tbe young chil- dren and how to prepare the food, show them the Importance of Internal hy- giene, and In a short tlmo Infantile paralysis will be a thing of tho past.

To thk Editor or The Sun Sir; I havo read with great Interest Trcsldent WIlson'B Fourth of July address at tho Federation of Labor's Installation at Washington. Ten yenrs ago I crossed the ocean with President Wilson of Princeton University. As tho most distinguished American on board he was Invited to preside or, If this was Inconvenient, to participate In tho Fourth of July cclehratlon In nildocean which as good Americans we held In honor of this great event In our history. The celebration was a great success. Captain Haxtcr's ship was decorated to the last piece of bunting. First, second and third class were ns one on board the ship In celebrating the day, thanks to this line British skipper's hospitality and friendship. All participated In the event with one exception nnd he the president of Princeton University. For all I ever learned there was neither excuse nor regret for this dere- liction. Certainly no olllclal expression of It was read or given during the speechmaklng in the cabin. Slnco then I have read Mr. Wilson's official rebuke of American tourists who \flaunted\ the ling abroad, jl peccadillo of theirs which may have lnmienccd him In keeping away fiom an olllclal cele bration In which the flag played su prominent a part.
