of the law passed by the last Leg

That publication wns made with
the apparent purpose of showing that
tho Superintendent of Public Works
ul ready has the authority to force
tho Installation of tho meter sstom.
No ono has over questioned tho
authority for running the water
works that was vested in the Super
intendent of Public Workg by the
last Legislature. It Is Just this au
thority which the Superintendent of
Public Works will unquestionably
loso If he persists In carrying out
tho nrbltrary policy of raising rates

and generally conducting the bureau

the taxpayers In the matter. The
principle Is a good one, and carries
out tho Idea of the continuing appro

under our present conditions;
Hut no sooner does the Superin

thoity than he goe3 to work and,
without warning or request for pub

CENSUS OF CHURCH MEMBERS.
Religious beliefs of our people ns
shown by the statistics ot those per
sons connected with tho organized
church will bo read with as much
general Interest ns anything Hint tho
census of the country will bring out.
Of course, it is well understood
that the church homo ot n man orf
woman docs not, In these days, ac
curately establish the religious be
lief ot the person, but this method
of classification furnishes tho only
basis tor comparison.
Appreciating the Importance of
this phnso of the census work, the
census bureau In one of its circulars
sent out to tho newspapers of tho
country hag given n digest of tho
church statistics for the mainland ot
the United Stntes ns shown In tho
census ot religious bodies for 1D0G.
That report gave UiO'aggrcgnto num
ber ot church communicants ns 32,
30,445. Ot tills total, tho various
Protestant bodies reported 20,287.
742 and the Homan Catholic church
For purposes of comparison tho
census authorities divided tho prin
cipal cities Into four clnssei, thoso
having In 1900 n population of 300.
000 and over constituting the first
class; those of from 100,000 to 300,-
000 forming the second; thoso of
from 50,000 to 100,000 making tho
third; nr.d those ot from 25,000 to
50,000 forming the fourth class.
Of tho Protestant aggregate there
were, l,47S,14i or 7.3 per cent. In
the first-class' cities; 4,7 per cent. In
the second; nnd 7.4 per cent. In the
third and fourth classes -combined,
while 8.(5 per cent, were outside the
Ot tho Unman Catholic church's
total membership thero were 3,375,
fs.l or 27.9 per cent. In flrst.clnsi
cities; 1.3C1.132 or U.3 per cent. In
the second; 1,570,944 or 13 per cunt.
In the third and fourth classes com
bined; with 5, 771, CIS or 47.8 per
cent, outside the principal cities. '
It U seen, therefore, that tho num
ber of members of the Koiuan Cath
olic church reported In cities of the
first cluss was considerably more
than double tho number reported by
all the' Protestant bodies, while out
side of the principal cities the num
ber reported by tho Catholics was
only a llttlo over one-third of tho
number credited to the Protestants.
It Is pointed out In the report that
tho strength of tho Protestant
bodies; as compared with tho Roman
Catholic church, Is greatly Under
stated. Only two ot the Protestant bodies
reported n majority of their member,

HOW TO SOLVE .
Editor Evening .DuPloHn:
Although I am not exactly a mallhlnl
I have been hero long, enough to pay
n couple or poll tax dues and with
your permission I am going to put In
my oar on this prohibition question.
I havo not only lived In n prohibt
tlon stnto but I was borm In n prohl
bltlon stato and I know that Prohibi
tion Is admitted to bo n hideous farce.
It does not destroy tho demand for
liquor, but simply degrades the chnn
nel through which tho supply flows.
In tho fow unfortunate states -which
havo had prohibition forced on thorn
n business stagnation has surely fol
lowed tho erstwhllo enforcement of
this tommy rot. Thero Is n lowering of
moral tone of tho community, charged
direct to the hypocrisy bred by tho
Prohibitionists In their endeavor to
saddle such a furco on a civilized poo
If prohibition obtnlns hero not only
will tho tourist clvo tho Islands n
wldo berth but all men ot progressiva
ability will shun n place, bo It stato
or territory, whero they can oxlst, only
as hypocrites or scml-crlmlnals.
I bcllevo the .solution: of what Is
known ns tho liquor problem must
enmo from tho liquor dcalors. them
solves. Thero Is not tho least doubt
In tho world that tho "big dealers'
will ndopt any suggestion mado to
them looking tq tho betterment of tho
liquor traffic. It seems to' me that nil
that Is needed Is a concerted action
of tho people of this territory, nnd nt1
tho samo time servo notice on tho
law offlclnls that wo expect them to
follow Instructions., This electing a
man to ofllco as a public servant, your
servant and my servant, for wo'aro
all paying his salary, and then go
down on your knees to get him to do
somo llttlo act for tho public good Is
getting a little too thin, nnd it Is tlmo
that public officials collectively were
brought up with a round turn.
j There Is certainly a subsiding of'tho
prohibition wave throughout tho
United States, and the prohibition
farce would not be tried except In
somo distant territory like this.
