February contains the anniversaries
of both Lincoln and Washington.
These great men had few personal
traits in common- except a high sense
of honor and service. Lincoln was
kindly, gentle and genial. Ho loved
to tell quaint and humorous stories.
Washington was reserved and rather
austere. But Washington's character
was shown clearly a couple of years
ago when a party of engineers reran
a line of many miles in length that
Washington had first surveyed. They
had the best of modern instruments
and trained help. Washington had
the crude instruments of early days
and was asisted mainly by unlenrnud
men. He could easily have done a
careless job and it would never have
been discovered in his lifetime. But
so accurate was the line run that the
modern surveyors could not do it bet
ter. There isa story that a teacher once
reproved a boy for failure in his
mathematical lesson by the remark
that at his age, George Washington
was a surveyor. Tho youth replied
"Yes, and at your age, he was presi
dent. The administration is reported to
have found that a cut of fifty millions
in the appropriations is necessary or a
now war tax in addition to what e
already have will have to be imposed.
WHEKE MONEY HAS NOT GONE
"Health for China, a refuge for the
birds, food for the Belgians, pensions
for New York widows, university
training for the elect and never a
thought or a dollar for the many
thousands of men, women and child
ren who starved in Colorodo, for the
widows robbed of husbands, children
of their fathers. There are thousands
of Mr. Rockefeller's ex-employes in
Colorado today who wish to God they
were in Belgium today to be fed or a
bird to bo tenderly cared for."
The above words were spoken by
John R. Lawson before the Fedural
Commission on Industrial Relations.
Here is just cause for complaint
when vast sums of monoy are obtain
ed from the labor of communities and
the capitalist uses this money estab
lishing hugh foundations for scientific
research; international peace and
other philanthropies to the utter ne
gleet of the interest of those whose la
bora produced the wealth originally.
Theso foundations are worthy but
why not spent a part of the money
studying the causes of seasonal un
employment. Why feed Helginns and
let those starve whose labor created
the monoy with which Belgians nrc
Tho city expenses are over $12,000

THE CENTER OF POPULATION
From a statistical atlas of the Unit

The facts arc derived from the 1910
census . The country has grown sinco
to 100,000,000 population. It is unlike
ly that the atlas' deductions arc ma
terially wrong today.
Tho center of population from 1820
to 1830 was in Virginia; from 18G0 to
1S80 it was in Ohio. Since 1890 it has

The center of population in Indiana

southwest. It is now in Alabama.

THE WHITE MAN'S BURDEN
Lester Jonoi, deputy commissioner
of Fisheries, in a report on tho Prib
iloff nnd Aleutian inlands to Secretary
Redfield submitted last January says:
"The white man r. lack of care and
regard for tho sanctity of tho natives'
home is the crime of Alaska. In
many sections the wife and daughters
are dishonored and any resistance on
the part of the husband, father or
brother is overcome by threats and
bribes and liquor, even until the men
have all their best inpulscs and senses
deadened and seem to be unmanned."
This is indeed a heavy burden the
white man bears. It is the vilest
form of depravity. Tho federal gov
ernment white slave marshals would
do well to gather their quarry in these
