president's new freedom has given us u new banking and
rency system, a new tariff, a new Inocme tax. a new constitution of peace
between government and business, and a new theory or our duty toward
Latin-American states afflicted by revolution and tyranny.
If the words of William ('. Van Antwerp, one of the governors of the
New York stock exchange, moan anything, there has been another de-
velopment as remarkable as any of these. Speaking at Washington In
commendation of Mr. Wilson's policies as announced in his recent address
to congress, Mr. Van Antwerp said
"Heresies and schism* come and go; man-made laws appear and dis-
appear, but the human heart does not change, and in the last analysis we
come to know that only righteousness exalteth a nation. We of the stock
exchange know this today better than we ever knew it before, and we in-
tend to live by it through the years. We shall make many mistakes, no
doubt, but we shall stick to our standards and rejoice In them, and some
day mark my words this great market place will earn the admiration
and respoct of the whole people.
"We are determined to s.iow our critics by our deeds that the stock
exchange means something vital and vitalizing In America; that it is an
Important adjunct of the new Wall street a broad highway from ocean
to ocean, doing its utmose to meet the needs of n happy and pros-
It Is to be regretted that when Howard Elliott spoke In New York
the other day on "What Alls the New Haven?" he could not have made
an equally "honorable surrender." He gave many reasons for the plight
of that great property, but he did not mention the one that had moro to
do with It than all the others. On the subject of monopoly and plunder
as promoted by the old Wall street he was silent.
There Is no abject confession In Mr. Van Antwerp's pronouncement,
and there was need of none. He Indicates past conditions sufficiently
when he describes those of the present and makes his promises for the
future. In this respect his utterance may be accepted as a worthy re-
sponse, both in language and in sentiment, to the president's firm but
kindly notice that a new era of law enforcement Is at hand.
It Is a good thing for the country that tho conception of "a new Wall
street, a broad highway from ocean to ocean, doing its utmost to meet
the needs of a happy and prosperous land," originated In Wall street it-
self. Nobody else has said it Millions of men have waited for such a
message from that quarter. Where that Ideal Is truly held there will be
no lack of co-operation and counsel which the president in the interest
of Justice and peace has so earnestly and so eloquently invited New York

The mayor and council have shown a commendable spirit In deciding
to submit to the people at t ie next city election the question of leasing
or buying an automobile fire truck It is probable that the contract al-
ready made between the city and the manufacturing company would have
been, and possibly would not have been, questioned. The attorney for
the automobile company held that such a contract was good, and no re-
monstrance against it 'had been made, though It had been given wide

When one forgives, Truth approves. Justice averts her eyes. Mercy re-
joices, and Love sheds tears of gratitude It Is then that the choir invis-
ible joins with Cherubim and Seraphim in singing with ecstacy heavens
sublime8t anthems; the "-harpers harping with their harps" play with
greatest skill and sweetest Intonation their most glorious rhapsodies, and
there is echoed and re-echoed with in flu it o harmony throughout the uni-
verse of God one grand chorus of heavenly melody. It is taen that con-
science gives lis heartiest "amen" of approval, and the "still small voice"
speaks In tones clear as light and sweet as music. "It is well." It Is then,
too, that evil and all its children of Iniquity shrink with fear and trembling,
kuowing that the Matter is near, and cry. "What have we to do wit.i thee?"
The wild beasts of hate snarl and growl, the reptiles of envy hiss and
wriggle, the scorpions of slander squirm and thrust their poisou into their
dens and dungeons of dark net The worm of jealousy ceases to gnaw at
the root of the vine, and the flowers of Hope blossom forth In beauty and
profusion, their perfume making redolent the atmosphere of peace and
bringing joy and gladness to the hearts of men and women and dear little

that Infectious diseases are not ther-

analysis will show that it isn't the
disease itself but merely' a tendency
to it which Ik inherited, it is well
known that narrow chests are much
more likely to develop consumption
than those who have well developed
chests. Now if one or both parents
have narrow chests, the children
could inherit a narrow chest just
us easily as they Inherit brown eyes,
blue eyes, black eyes, or a peculiar
shaped nose or peculiar shaped
hands or feet. Now if these parents
are tubercular and attempt to raise
their children, it is more than likely
that these children will later on
develop consumption or tubercu-
losis; but if on the other hand these
children are taken at the time of
birth, placed and brought up in
another home free from tuberculosis,
they are not apt to develop this
disease even though they have in-
herited a tendency to same and have

quently proven to be true.

Much has been said of the Inher
itance of degeneracy, and in the
past it was supposed that certain
diseases were inherited. While it
is true that degeneracy can be in-
herited, it is not true that Infectious j
diseases, such as tuberculosis, can
be Inherited; but It is true that
heredity does bring down to us a
high degree of vital resistance, and
this has proved to be a great benefit
to the race, for there Is more good
than bad carried from generation to
generation. If this were not true

MOOSE TAKES LEAD
HINEBAUGH, PROGRESSIVE, IN-
TRODUCES A PRESIDENTIAL
BACKED BY ALL HIS PARTY
i Democrats Hesitant About Putting i
Wilson's Suggestion Into Form of !
a Measure—Such Law Might
Permit Women to Vote.
By GEORGE CLINTON.
Washington.—It is a representative
of the Progressive party who, with the
J approval of the party's organization. Is
| the first to get into the field of legls-1
lation with a presidential primary bill. |
I Representative Hinebaugh, Progres-1
sive, of Illinois, was the author of the
j measure to put into the law the spirit
j and the letter of the pronouncement in
j favor of presidential primaries made
I by the Progressive party In its con-
vention at Chicago oue year ago last
The legislative reference committee
of the Progressive party has just met
and has given the bill of Mr. Hine-
baugh its indorsement. There are
some Progressives here who think
that one of the provisions of the bill
is open to criticism and that perhaps
another bill drawn by Mr. Hinebaugh
early last spring is in this one particu-
lar better suited to the case. • The
measure just introduced by the Illinois
representative, however, probably will
stand as the expression of the Pro-
gressive party's endeavor in the presi-
dential primary matter.
Thus far no Democrat in congress
has cared to crystallize the party chief-
tain's recommendation for presiden-
tial primaries into the form of a bill.
It was expected that zealous party
men seeking for prestige and renown
would put the typewriter through the
paces and make a race for the bill
basket with the first proposition to
give effect to the president's wishes.
Nothing of the kind has happened.
Thus far no announcement of the
administration's purpose in its own
behalf has been made. It may be that
before long the president, on his own
initiative, will see that a measure em-
bodying his ideas is introduced, but
perhaps with his "one thing at a
time" program he will postpone the
primary day until some more conveni-
Hinebaugh's Two Bills.
It was early in the spring that the
first Hinebaugh primary bill was in-
troduced into congress. As has been
said, it has been superseded by an-
other bill by the same author. In the
first bill many of the election func-
tions are left to the various states. In
j the second bill there is a provision
which creates a "board of national
I election commissioners to be composed
i of five persons, to be appointed by the
president, by and with the advice and
i consent of the senate, and places in
j the hands of this national election
I commission all the functions which
under the first bill would be left to the
Hack of the Hinebaugh bill stand
the Progressives now in congress.
While there Is some difference of
opinion, as has been said, concerning
the substitution of the federal for the
state control features, the bill as It
stands probably will be made the
standard of the Progressives' sane-
' tioned legislation.
There are about twenty Progressives I
in the house of representatives. They
are not all written down in the direc-1
' tory as Progressives with a capital P, j
j but all of them are In sympathy with
j the Progressive platform and almost
always vote with the Progressives
when any matter of principle is in-
volved. A bill drawn by a Progressive
and backed by the entire representa-
tion in the house will get the atten-
tion of all the membership of all par-
Would Permit Women to Vote.
If congress shall pass the presiden-
tial primary law It is believed that un-
der it women will be allowed to vote.
A constitutional amendment Is not
necessary to put a presidential pri-
mary into effect. There seems to be
nothing In the document to forbid
women from voting fn presidential pri-
maries if the law instituting them
shall be worded properly.
Representative Lafferty of Oregon,
who Is carried in the Congressional
Directory as a Progressive Republican,
printed just as it Is here with no
hyphen and with both words capital-
ized, has followed in the trail of Rep-
resentative Hinebaugh of Illinois and
has introduced a presidential primary
bill on his own account. When Mr.
Lafferty came to congress he declared
himself a Progressive It is now said
that he prefers to be called a Republi-
can. though he wishes to be known as
oue with Progressive marks looming
large The Progressives, however, it
is said, will prefer to follow the presi-
dential priamry lead of Mr. Hinebaugh.
The bill Introduced by theOregonian
is a long one. It creates, as does the
Hinebaugh measufe, a national board
of five members, to be appointed by
the president and to have general over-
