The seriousness of tiro losses In tho
United States becomes conspicuous as
one gets down to details. Hero is an
Interesting comparison; The revenue
of the Statu of Maine In 1D03 was, In
round numbers, two million live bun
drcd and II fly thousand dollars; tho
Aamngo done by tires In the State dur
ing that ye.ir Is estimated nt five thou
sand dollars moro than that sum, with
out taking Into account the destruc
tion by forest tires, which would have
ndded more than a million dollars on
the wrong side. Doubtless almost nny
other .State would make quite ns had
showing; but such figures, whereso
ever found, aro full of suggestion.
Dishonesty in polities Is so generally
the rule that men who are honest :n
their private huxlncss do not hesitate
to falsify, cheat and steal In the mat
ter of political nominations and elec
tions If they can ilo so with any pros
pect of escaping punishment. Th?ro
can be no honest politics expressing
tho choice and voice of the people un
less, In the first place, the people are
enabled to take peional part by means
of primaries In nominating candidates,
and, in the second place, unless they
perform their public duty of qualify
ing themselves to voto lu all elections,
prlmury and final, and then go to tho

A Pittsburg 'steel magimto" now re
elding lu New York has recently cre
ated a fund of a million dollar far tfca
purpose of erecting model tenements In
New York. Apparently he desires to
duplicate substantially the splendid
bullJltifca de.Ised and control! d by the
City and Mubuiban Homes Company

tine the model tenements herelofo
constructed nro a phllanthrop. em - r -
prise. The tenants pay for what Uu.v
get but they get a gre.tt deal moro
tlinn other landlords glo for th
money. 'J he tenements are n tunnies
enterprise also, and yield a piollt of 1
per cent on the m mey lnvclo !. I'o i t
less tho new one will pay as well, and
forty thousand dollars will become
available every year to build more ten
ements. Evidently this Is the feiture
of the good-housing question that tip
tieals most forcibly to the man who
gives the million dollars. He does not
I noul or wnnt the 4 por cent, hut he
does Intend Uiat his benefaction shall
endure and benefit an ever-Increasing
number. As a business man and as a
philanthropist he might Justifiably an
ticipate a day when, by tho natural
law of growth, model temment shall
displace the other kind. We speak of
business and philanthropy In the same
breath. That tho association no longer
seems absurd marks a distinct pain for
IkiUi. It Is entirely proper that char
ity, even, should bo administered on
business principles, and It Is right that
a man who Is helped to a more om
fortahle way of living should aid to ex
tend the hcnctlt to his neighbor. Tho
strength of tho model-tenement plan Is
that it recognlrcs thrso principles.
Thereby It appeals to many who, llko
the Pittsburg man, are able and will
ing to tlo generous deeds when Judg
ment apprves what generosity sug
gests. No mnn reaches the ago of triumph
but by the steps of trial. Ho makes
no particular progress by patting
himself on the back. Virtue may bo
Its own reward, hut It Is not Its own
advertising agent. Tho most success
ful men are not tho ones noisily, de
manding public attention. The Ik-sI
and most useful women In tho world
nre not the bright buttcrlles of the
stage, whose press agents Incessant
!y Haunt their pictures and their lit
tle nothings before tho public. The
uiilainlcd men and women who nre
quietly attending to their own little
tasks, every day contributing some
thing substantial to Industry and pros
perity, rearing children In habits of
honest labor and right living and sup
