THE ENGLAND OF VIOTORIA AND GLADSTONE GONE. For three years THE WORLD has labored first to avert a conflict, then to stay the hand of England, and finally to prevail upon Great Britain to give up her war with the Boer Republics as one from which she can gather neither glory nor prestige. " The price that staggers humanity, which sturdy
Oom Paul Kruger said in his famous message to the people of the United States through THE WORLD, in the Autumn of 1899, the British would have to pay before England would own the Boer Republics, is still being paid at the rate of $1.250.000 a day in cash, to say nothing of the cruel sacrifices of precious human life, British and Boer. The faithful chronicles in THE WORLD from day to day have revealed these facts:
It has already cost the English the life of their beloved Queen, for Victoria's death, as THE WORLD was informed by high official authority, was unquestionably hurried by her worry over the war that she always thought was unjustitiable.
It has cost and is costing from the bullets of the Boers and from disease an average of more than 120 lives each day in the year.
On the other side, Frau Kruger, the brave wife of the expatriated President of the South African Republic, has died a British prisoner, in Pretoria ; Cronje is an exiled prisoner, and women and children are dying off in the concentration camps like drowning rats in a sinking ship.
The death rate in England and Wales is eighteen in every 1,000 inhabitants per year. The death rate in South African camps of Boer refugees maintained by the British Government is 264 per 1,000. In September 1,964 little children died in concentration camps.
To put this horrifying statement in a still more startling way, the conditions existing in the conceatration camps in South Africa are worse than those of the reconcentrado camps in Cuba, the Weylerism which the United States went to war with Spain to end.
Said John Morley, a brave, honest Englishman, who still remains faithful to the peaceful and humane principles of a foreign policy which Gladstone taught and practised: "The death rate of the children, measure it as you will, is hideous, excessive, and appalling, And 34,000 of the 63,000 prisoners in these camps are children, an appalling confession for a civilized country to make.
England has an army of 200,000 troops in South Africa, with 450 guns in the field, and 100,000 men under training at home to furnish reinforcements. The Government is providing daily supplies for 314,000 persons in South Africa, all directly or indirectly employed in the war; is feeding 248,000 horses and mules, and landing 10,000 new horses every month.
GREAT PUBLIC SERVICES RECALLED, In "The Great Highway," a book that records some of the most impressive experiences of a modern, wideawake newspaper man in all parts of the world, with thoughtful comment and some philosophical observations, James Creelman says:
“The New York World averted a national disgrace by providing a pedestal for the Statue of Liberty presented by the people of France. The same newspaper defeated the famous bond conspiracy, and compelled the Cleveland Administration to allow the general public to compete in the $100,000,000 loan, saving millions of dollars for the Treasury and demonstrating the financial independence of the United States. Surely, if it be right for a newspaper to urge others to act in any given direction, it is also right for the newspaper to act."
Criticising Mr. Creelman's book, Mr. E. L. Boninge, in comment upon the quoted paragraph, says :
"That is quite true: but THE WORLD is the only newspaper in the country that has bounded its great and fearless services in the cause of the common people by a recognition of the legitimate limits of newspaper crusading. THE WORLD has been a model for all honest editors who believe that a newspaper may properly enter the field of active agencies when the occasion is great enough and all other resources of the people have been exhausted. It is only necessary to recall the fact that many of Mr. Creelman's most famous achievements have been worked out when he was in the service of THE WORLD. But for the enterprise of THE WORLD in sending Mr. Creelman to Asia the thrilling truths of the Chinese-Japanese war would never have been known.'
FIRST WITH THE NEWS, THE WORLD was the first to announce that Seth Low would be the candidate for Mayor of the fifteen organizations in the fusion.
It was the first to tell the people of all the five boroughs of (ireater New York that they had selected Seth Low to be their Mayor. The news was flashed from the apex of the dome of the Pulitzer Building at eighteen minutes after 6 o'clock election night. The signal agreed upon to convey to the people of all New York the tidings if Low was elected was a white light of many thousand candle-power easily seen for many miles. This was the earliest announcement ever made of an election result,
The decision of the Court of Appeals granting a new trial to Roland B. Molineux and the gist of the opinions of the seven Judges of the Court of Appeals on which the decision was based, were given to readers of THE WORLD three weeks before they were announced by the Court and published by other papers.
The carefully guarded project for a great railroad bridge across the Hudson from Hoboken to Twenty-second Street, Manhattan, indorsed by the Pennsylvania Railroad and to be used by three other railroads, was given a complete exposition exclusively in THE WORLD, May 13,
The exclusive story of how Aguinaldo, the Filipino leader, made a proposal to William Jennings Bryan, early in the Presidential campaign of 1900, offering to contribute $100,000 to the Bryan campaign fund and to issue a proclamation announcing that if Bryan was elected the Philippine Army would surrender without condition, depending upon the Bryan Administration for a reasonable form of government founded on the Constitution, was ridiculed by jealous contemporaries, Mr. Bryan confirmed it next day, saying in a telegram to THE WORLD, “The report is substantially correct.
A trusted agent of THE WORLD in the Philippines visited Aguinaldo last Janunry in the mountain fastness where Funston found and captured him later in the year, and secured from him a long interview in which he set forth his aims and ambitions regarding the Filipino people and their government, and stated the terms on which he would treat with President McKinley for peace. This exclusive interview with the Filipino chieftain was forwarded uncensored to THE WORLD.
On December 17, 1900, The WORLD exclusively told of the severe illness of Queen Victoria, and how her death might be hastened by the British defeats in South Africa; how she was unable to sleep because of worry over the losses to British manhood in the war for which she had never seen any jastification,
It was first to give positive warning of the near approach of Queen Victoria's death, stating on January 18 that a special train was kept in readiness to convey the Prince of Wales and the royal family
to Cowes upon a moment's summons, An oficial announcement confirmed the news next day. The Queen died four days later,
The complete list of the securities owned by the dead millionaire railway king, Cornelius Vanderbilt, were first published in THE WORLD,
The important points in the decision of the United States Supreme Court in the Porto Rico casesthe most important decision handed down in a generation, establishing the doctrine that "the Constitution follows the flag"-were first given to an anxiously waiting nation by THE WORLD.
"THE WORLD'S” SERVICE TO THE ARMY. The news that no less than $361,000 of the stealings of Capt. Oberlin M. Carter had been recovered by the Government, having been traced to its place of hiding, recalled what a distinguished army officer said was “one of the very great services" for the maintenance of the arıny's high standard of personal honor,
When THE WORLD brushed the deep accumulation of dust from the papers containing the courtmartial's condemnation of Capt. Oberlin M. Carter, and held them up until his political pall grew weak before the public demand for justice, there was a mighty outcry from his friends and their friends that he was a martyr and that he was being persecuted, that he was innocent. And even after his uniform was stripped from him and he was put in the penitentiary, distinguished counsel, pledging their private honor for a fee, continued to try to befog the public mind by juggling the complicated features of the case.
Carter wants to get out of prison, where THE WORLD put him, and after denying virtuously that he ever stole a cent, his lawyer now puts in the fact of the recovery of some of his loot as a reason for pardoning him.
THE INTERNATIONAL YACHT RACE. The reporting of the international yacht races by THE WORLD was among the proud achievements of the year. It began with the trial races on both sides of the water. THE WORLD, under a long-established rule, retains the highest expert in every specialty, and its yachting expert is no less than John R. Spears, historian of the navy and a veteran yachtsman. THE WORLD announced early in the trial races that the old Columbia was a better boat than the new defender, Constitution, and far and away better than the Boston candidate, Independence. It was a week ahead of the committee in announcing that Columbia had been determined on to defend the Cup, and on the same day assured its readers that Columbia would beat out the new Shamrock II. for the Cup, being ten minutes faster than she was in 1899, when she beat Shamrock I, so handily.
THE WORLD's exclusive description of the new defender was published May 27.
THE WORLD's bulletins first told the result of the races to the excited crowds in Park Row, and its extras were first on the street with the complete story of the races,
Henry Steers, Sr., who sailed on the America in the first cup race in 1851, wrote a graphic story of how she won the race.
THE WORLD's Pocket Guide and Handbook, distributed as a suppiament with a timely issue, gave even the spectators of the America's Oup races between Columbia and Shamrock an equal knowledge with old tars regarding the respective boats, their rigging, and other points, together with a dictionary of the yachting vernacular, so that the jargon of the yachtsmen about them could be understood by them and the points in the race before them made plain.
THE NEW LITERARY NEWS DEPARTMENT. With the increase of public libraries and the publication not only of standard works, but up-to-date books of the first class at moderate prices, there has developed an immense clientele of readers which created a demand for news of books and authors. Early in the year THE WORLD established a book department, expecting to meet this demand. This literary news departure, however, had the element of uncertainty It was established to cover a field of increasing importance. It was established as a permanency ind success, according to the policy which has prevailed in all departments and has marked the cause of THE WORLD's advance and expansion as a newspaper. The regular Saturday pages of book announcements, views, and reviews have become extremely popular, and each new week's reviews have marked a steady growth in the new department, culminating in a sixteen-page announcement of the holiday gift books.
RAPID TRANSIT NEARER. The report of the Rapid Transit Commission, just published, showing that $11,245,000 of the $28,000,000 cost of excavating the tunnel and constructing the road has already been expended, accompanied by a repetition by Contractor John B, McDonald of his assurances that the whole of this great work will be finished and ready for occupancy well within the three years' limit imposed upon the contractors, is particularly gratifying to THE WORLD.
It means the near fulfilment of the desires, the hopes, and the demands of the people of Manhattan and the Bronx, which were compressed by THE WORLD into five words in an editorial on April 8, 1893, and have been the rallying slogan of the advocates of rapid transit ever since-"To Harlem in fifteen minutes !"
THE WORLD was the first advocate of a rapid transit system, and on exactly the lines finally adopted. It called for real rapid transit, and no makeshift. Experiments made in London, Paris, and other places reveal that he motive power for the new road is already waiting for its harness,
IN BEHALF OF JUSTICE. The opening of the new Children's Court, in the old Charities Building, with the beginning of 1902 marks the commemoration of a project advocated by THE WORLD looking to the complete separation of children arrested for offences against the law or taken in as vagrants, or because they need the help or the protection of the city. More than 12,000 cases of prisoners under sixteen years of age were adjusted in the police courts last year. All such might be taken care of in the Children's Court in the future, for, as THE WORLD has agreed, they are not criminal and they ought not to be made criminal by contact with the criminals and degraded creatures haled into police courts.
THE WORLD denounced the "employer's liability” bill as a complete travesty of the equitable law which it pretended to be, because under it no injured employé could recover damages unless he sued within ten days, and no other injured person could recover damages unless he filed a written notice that he intended to sue within sixty days after the injury. This bill was killed.
The decision of the Court of Appeals declaring the anti-ticket scalpers' law, passed at the behest of the principal railroad corporations, to be unconstitutional, was in exact support of THE WORLD'S contention in its fight against its passage.
THE PEOPLE'S UNIVERSITY. The free lectures system connected with the public schools of the City of New York was instituted in 1888 through the efforts of THE WORLD, A review of the history of this system, now in its fourteenth year, tempts the commentator to point to it as perhaps THE WORLD's greatest and most far-reaching service to the City of New York. Last year's lectures were attended by 553,558 persons, and the indications at this time, in the midst of the fourteenth season, are that this number will be doubled, with the additional lecture rooms in Manhattan Borough and a beginning made in Brooklyn with ten halls. subjects range through all the sciences and arts, music, and literature. They are now conducted in cooperation with the libraries, and might be appropriately described as the People's University. The fame and good works of this People's University have extended to other cities, and investigators and committees have come from Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, and other places to learn how they are carried on, and have gone home full of enthusiasm to start a similar system.
"ONLY COMMON SENSE” AND THE CANAL TREATY. After years of old-fashioned diplomacy, which had for its mainspring the desire on the part of each party to get the better of the other, Great Britain and America have settled the Canal Treaty. Giadstone's famous formula for the preservation of international amity, Only common sense is necessary, cabled to THE WORLD when it raised its voice to stay the two English-speaking nations from war over the Venezuelan dispute, was successfully applied at Washington in the signing of the new HayPauncefote treaty, and the way cleared for the construction of the Isthmian Canal.
The Olayton-Bulwer treaty disappears, but the only feature it ever had the guarantee of a neutral canal-remains. The United States becomes the sole guarantor of that neutrality, and Great Brita in gets rid of all responsibility in that regard. Other nations are not invited to adhere to the treaty, but the canal will be theirs to use on equal commercial conditions. The United States gains an absolutely free hand with full liberty to fortify, but without any obligation foolishly to waste money in that way.
The ratitication of the treaty followed speedily, and this triumph of the new diplomacy of publicity advocated by THE WORLD, its inventor, was complete.
IN THE REALM OF SPORTS. The first sporting event of the Twentieth Century was under the auspices of THE WORLD. It consisted of a foot race for gold, silver, and bronze medals. The start was made at the Harlem office of THE WORLD at one second after 12 o'clock New Year's morning. The goal was the Pulitzer Building.
