Saving the Children
In the campaign which is be
ing waged for a safe and sane
Fourth we know of no stronger
argument for it than an article
which appears in the current
number of the Review of Re
views from the pen of John M.
Huber, M. D., which we print
below in part:
"It may surprise many a citi
zen to know that a very rational
and earnest movement against
the use of fireworks on Indepen
dence day is now in its seventh
year; nor is it universally realized
among us how many of our chil
dren have, by reason of these
yearly celebrations, suffered the
most cruel death kuown to medi
cal science. Were any such
emotion possible in the English
breast, that of satisfaction for
the losses and humiliations en
dured by England in the war for
independence at least so far as
human life is concerned could
hardly be more thoroughly justi
fied; for, taking no account
whatever of our national losses
of many decades past, but only
of those incurred in the last three
yearly celebrations and in the
metropolis alone, we find that
1339 have been killed and in
juredmore than the casualties
in the Revolutionary battles of
Lexington, Bunker Hill, Fort
Moultrie, White Plains, Fort
Washington, Monmouth and
Cowpens combined. Nor have
these losses been among the
fighting men, but rather among
little children; and of the latter
wounded on Independence Day
many that have not died have
nevertheless been dreadfully
maimed and disfigured for life.
"The American Medical Asso
ciation has gathered most of the
statistics upon which the fight
against the use of fireworks on
the Glorious Fourth has been
based. A year ago it demon
strated in it3 Journal that in the
six preceding years our whole
country has shown for that f esti
val a grand total of 29,296 killed
and wounded. In 1903 there
were 415 case of Fourth of July
tetanus; in 1904, 105 cases; in
1905, 104; in 1906, 89; in 1907, 55
recorded cases; in 1909, 76. In
1909 there were 150 cases, the
largest number since 1903, prob
ably for the same reason that
the Fourth coming on Sunday,
the celebration was practically
one of three days; as it comes
this year on Monday there is now
to be feared another triurnal
tribute to the modern Moloch."
It must be and is possible to
celebrate the American nation's
natal day without abating the
patriotism of its most ardent
patriots, in a way that will be
as inspiring and more lasting in
its influence than the noisy dem
onstrations we have been used
to. Many communities are now
arranging for rational means of
celebrating the coming Fourth,
which should be fully as enjoy
able as those heretofore obtain
ing and without results so dread
ful as have here been set down.
Why not Hood River?
The proposed raise in telephone
rates is not a question in which
the public is interested in the
salary drawn by the manager.
This is a matter for the discre
tion of the stockholders and
board of directors. The vital
point is that the rates that are
now in effect in Hood River are
as high, and in most instances
higher than, those in other cities
of the state where telephone
systems are being successfully
operated. To ask patrons of the
company here therefore to pay
the increased rate must be view
ed as an act of extortion. It is
true the stockholders of the com
pany have never received any
dividends or interest on their
money, but it is also true that
their stock has almost doubled in
value. It is likewise apparent
that in the near future it will be
still more valuable and pay hand
some returns. The fact that the
company has needed more capi
tal from the start to enlarge and
develop its service is proof on
its face that the field is a lucra
tive one and that the company
instead of asking patrons to fur
nish this capital, should seek
other ways of providing it. The
residents of Hood River have
been loyal to the company since
its organization and ought not to
be asked to discount the future.
