4.i.ttfv the extension of a system thirty
forty or sixty years old into times like
the present that have obviously oui
rrnwn It. Reference Is had to the sal-
f most of our federal officials.
We came near to starving or bank

on pay fixed tor the position half a

chosen to fill H; and when the salary
Was doubled not many years ago n
wasn't made large enough to fit the
rimes: it ought to be doubled at least
before the term beginning on March 4.
iHfi. comes along.
r.ndent of the New York
Press at Bayonne discusses this mat
ter both sensibly and forcibly. It Is
"disgracefuV he says, for this, the
mightiest, the richest nation on earth,
to offer Its chief executive "but 50.
ooo a year." Our wealth, he shows. Is
nearly equal to the combined wealth
of England and Russia or of Germany
and Russia; and it nearly equals that
vf Russia. Austria, Italy and Spain
combined. England's indebtedness Is
more than double ours, and her popu
lation less than half of ours. The na
tional debt of Germany is nearly a bil
lion dollars more than ours and her
population one-third less than double
ours. "The national debt of Russia is
more than double ours, and her popu
latlon about one-half more than ours.
Still, with all these facts against their
policies as compared with the United
States, Great Britain pays King Ed
ward nearly $2,000,000 a year, not to
mention what goes from the exchequer
to other members of the royal family;
the president of France receives sal
ary of 40.000 a yean the emperor of
Germany, nearly $3,000,000; the czar of
"Russia. $12,000,000; the king of Greece
$200,000; the govern jr-general of 'Can
ada, $50,000. Even the' lord chancellor
of England receives J50.000 a year. And
we pay our president a paltry $o0,000
' and our cabinet officers a pittance of
$8,000 a year-whlch barely pays the
. rent of the right sort of a house in
Washington and expect them all to
a maintain the dignity of the nation on
. .such niggardly allowances!
; Many an Insurance company official
. gets vastly more than the president of
. the United States. Lots of railroad and
Viunbinar orcputivea would turn their
backs on such pay. In the "persona'
coluiim of the Commercial this morning
southern business man Is mentioned
as getting double that salary. Why,
salaries of $50,000 are comparatively
common In this country In positions re
quiring not, a tlth of the ability, the
tact and the chaHctecf a president
of the United Sta'es, and involving not
a hundredth part of the responsibility!
And. If It vere not for the fact that
such an enormous amount of honor at
taches to the position more, It Is our
proud boast, than goes with a crown
or a throne anywhere In the world
only cheap men could be found to fill
the place. .
NAVY BUILDING MIST UO O.N.
Recent events have justified Secre
tary Moody's recommendation, made In
his annual report, that two new battle
ships be constructed Nand that appro
priations for the same be made with
out delay. On Wednesday he renewed
that recommendation before the house
committee on naval affairs. The com
mittee had, in their wisdom, concluded
that this country was In no hurry for
more shir just at present, urged to
that decision by some mistaken ideas of
economy, just as previous congres
sional committees have bn urged, and j
had practically decided not to make the
desired appropriation this year, at any
rate, despite the oft proven wisdom of
the old adage, "in time of peace pre
pare for war." Perhaps what happen
ed In Venezuela was unexpected by
these wise heads, but It Is too often the
unexpected that happens In this
world's affairs. At any rate, they have
experienced a change of heart and are
now Inclined to grant the navy secre
tary's request. In fact, they may
grant more than he asked, for indica
tions today are that two new armored
cruisers and a hospital ship will be
It took the Spanish, war to stir up
congress to our need of an effective
navy but we are not yet up to the
mark. Battleships are a strong induce
ment to the maintenance of peace,
when owned by a powerful ana con-j
servative nation like ours. But the,
battleships of today are not construct
ed as rapidly as in the days before
ironclads came into vogue. There was
a time when an effective navy was
built during the winter season In the
forests on the shores of one of the lakes
on the border net ween me uuhtu
States and Canada, and was ready for
business in the spring, when it gave a
good account If Itself. But It now takes
years' where it once took months to
complete a 'varship, and delays are
dangerous. This country today is one
of the recognized great powers of the
earth, and to maintain Its position must
have an adequate navy, for in these
days that Is of more Importance to It
than a large army. The United States
is naturally designed to be a great
naval power, with Its extensive coast
line on two great oceans, and with val
uable interests In distant parts of the
earth. The work of building a navy
along modern lines should go on stead
ily year by year, until it is equal to
our requirements and suited to the dig
nitjr of a great nation.
