ONCE LUXURIES; NOW
It Is an undisputed fact that tho
cost of living has advanced In the
last few J ears, and from Congress
down to the little cross-corners store
the fact has been talked over and
tho reasons given.
The ordinary, every day living of
today was the luxurious life of no
very long ago. This much Is proved
by trio report of n trade Journal
which .recently presented a list if
things once known as luxuries or
supertluitles, and very sparlnglv
used, on which the people of tho
United,, StutcB i.ow spend over 1-'
HoreNure a few of them:
Huropean trips, $170,000,000:

At this distance the unanimous
approval of the Committee on Terri
tories seems a tery strong backing
for any measure. As the Delegate
Is a member of this committee, and
many rf Its members liao visited
the Territory, one might expect Its
recommendations to hae more

ELECTION CORRUPTION IN ENG
LAND AND AMERICA.
Recent elections In Great llrltan
have nerved one purpose In the edu
cation of the people, though some
doubt may bo expressed as to who'
ther It li a good one. Human nature
Is much the sume In England as It
Is In the United Stales when It comes
to striving to carry nn election by
fair means or foul.
It has been quite customary to
compare the United States most un
favorably with Great llrltaln when
discussing the degree of honesty that
prevails In election methods. Hut
since the last Itrltlsh elections the
llrltlsh obBcrvcra In their own coun-
ure Inclined to give us the bene
.t of the doubt.
That the London press on both
tides was so violently partisan as to
color and suppress news, that free
specchv was often Impossible, that
meetings were packed uhd that
rough-house tactics were constantly
employed, was accepted us it matter
of course. In addition, however.
charges of bribery and intimidation
and tho dealing out of tree beer in
unlimited quantities have been com
mon. Especially noticeable was the
lavish use of money in electioneer
ing. It is true that no action has been
taken to unseat members of Parlia
ment for bribery and corruption as
was done In 190G. In that year
vato-bu)lng nnd fraud were carried
oftiso generally In Worcester, it cath
edral town, that tho city was dis
franchised for two ) cars and was
deprived of representation In tne
Itouso of Commons. The purchase
and sale of votes Vor money was
proved In at least three other con
Contrary to the universal rule In
this country, ihe saloons remain
open on election day in England
Where tho great brewing Interests
were so directly Interested In de
featlng.the Gpvernment.as they were
this ear, free beer was sure to be
n popular argument. The protec
tionist forces for some years have
commanded Immense resources.
Numbers of organizations formed
for political pui poses have provided
means of evading tho Corrupt Prac
tices act. Supplied with largo funds
for carrying on their work, they
were not compelled1 b,y law to ac
count for tfieir receipts or disburse
ments. At tho'same time they were
frco to do electioneering work tor
candidates on a Bcalo which they
could not legally pay for in person.
Tho lack of laws requiring full
publicity as to campaign contribu
tions, direct and Indirect, and the
unrestricted practice of making sub
scriptions to charities, clubs and
vurlous enterprises and movements
up to within a few dayg of election,
when candidates are nominated,
opened the way for the wholesale
use of money in a contest where
the wealthy classes had everything
to gain fiom a political victory that
would ufford protection to their poc
kets. They seem to have mot the
crisis generously, although unsuc
cessfully, and the first result Is that
thoy fata n fresh agltuton against
Now that the llrltlsh have found
they ma be as bad as wo are, let
us hope that lessons may be gained
In the experience of each country
for the Improvement of election con
ditions In both nations. Too much
time and thought have been ex
pended in striving to prove one
wart-o than the other.
