General MaoArthur says that the attitude of the people who have declared or peace, and that of the leaders of the federal arty must not bo attributed "entirely to unre- lerved pro-Americanism." It would be unsafe, So General MacArthur thinks, "to assume the ronservative forces as constant factors, the friendly operation of which can be relied upon Irrespective of external influences." General MacArthur makes it very plain that Ithe forces of neither the army or the navy .should be reduced. Ho gives us a word of hope when he says: "In due time and beyond any question, if beneficial republican institu tions are permitted to operate with full force, tithe Filipino people will become warmly attached fto the United States by a sens...

And no representa tive of this administration would be permitted Kb do any act that might be construed as show- g a friendly feeling for the South African uichmen who are struggling in defense of mstitutional government, who are fighting in ehalf of a republican form of government, fwho are battling against the encroachments of ten empire, who are sacrificing their lives and Rheir fortunes in defense of their homes.

The Commoner. misstatements concerning the property they -hold subject to taxation. Every community inr the United States suffers because many of its citizens have fallen into the bad habit of making a deliberate misrepresentation to the tax assessor. Two remedies suggest them solrea for this evil: One is the persistent cul trvation of a public sentiment that will frown upon misrepresentations of this char acter that will condemn tho tax dodger to a discreditable position. The other is tho elec tron to the office of tax assessor of a man who 'will make no discrimination' between individ uals but who will use every effort to have all property listed for taxation, and to expose any man, high or low, who adoptd the roll of the fax-dodger: Both remedies ought to be em ployed. w Children Not Burdensome.

Why should 'not the spoken word be dictation for ' its spelling and the written or printed word indicate to the reader its correct pronunciation? It requires 25 iper . cent less labor and expense to composo and print traflc than it does to compose and print trafflck, and 14 per cent less than to compose and print traffic. Compo sition is to represent spoken words and this is only a labor question. The dovico that can 'bo jused with the least labor to most perfectly and systemati cally represent a spoken language is the bettor one. Words are composed of articulate sounds of the human voice and letters are symbols for such sounds. An ideal alphabet for a language is one that has a letter for each sound of the lan guage.

This amendment provides that "pro visional orders" fixing hours may be passed by local authorities, subject to revision, by parliament. This law will be the first step in Great Britain to regulate the hours of male adults, and will be closely scanned as a possible precedent.

No financial policy is too cruel, no dollar too dear, no money system too despotic for them to cndorso; provided, always, it has the endorsement of the money changers. They not only want to make gold the only standard money, but they want to retire the greenbacks and substitute national bank notes. They often prate of their love of Jefferson, and yet they know that Jefferson was always and at all times the enemy of banks of issue. They conjure with the name of Jackson, and yet Jackson made his greatest reputation fight ing a bank of issue. If these papers had their way the democratic party would disregard en tirely the interests which tho masses have in a stable dollar, and would make tho party tho exponent of those whom Carlisle once described as the "idle holders of idle capital." .

4 The Commoner. British Rule in India. Justice Brown in delivering the opinion of the court in the Downes case said: "Grave apprehensions of danger are felt by many eminent mena fear lest an unrestrained possession of power on the part of congress may lead to unjust and oppressive legislation, in which the natural rights of territories, or their inhabitants, may be engulfed in a centralized des potism. These fears, however, find no justifica tion' in the action of congress in the past century, nor in the conduct of the British parliament to ward its outlying possessions since the Ameri can revolution." It marks an epoch in American history when the highest court of the land uses the ex perience of England to support an attack on written constitutions. It is the most audac ious and unblushing surrender of fundamental principles which has occurred in this country. As Justice Brown invites us to consider and admire the conduct of an unrestrained parlia ment it may not ho out of place t...

Mr. Fitzsimmons is not exactly a model for the youth of America, and yet he gave some good advice to young men. He said: "I never see a young man dissipating, hut I feel like taking him aside and telling him that ho U wasting his strength, squandering his power and inviting disappointment and suffering." No one is in a better position to know the evil effects of dissipation than the habitue of the prize ring. Even the prize fighters' suc cess depends upon abstinence from strong drink.
