MAKE SECURITY MEAN SECURITY.
THE limilwl opening of tho Stock Exchange scheduled for Batur
day next is not eiprtcd to proToke any serious financial dis
turbance. Tim renmn for this is tliat the mlc to bo enforced
for regulating the prices of stocks offered for sale is the same as that
whjoh now governs the dispow) of bonds.
In effect, the governors of the Stock Exchange establish an
upset price, bids below which will not be entertained.
This rule is simplicity itself. But it promises the excellent result
. of making the Stock Exchange a market place for legitimate buyers
' and sellers instead of a gambling-house where marked cards can be
used to bring innocent holders of securities to rain.
We all know the practice of the short seller who offers something
' he has nof, at prices designed to affect shares held on margin, which
can then be picked up at low rates, to bo speedily retold at a fancy
'profit. It it this practice that baa brought the Stock Exchange into
disrepute. It la this practice that bas turned the American publio
from investing in what too often prove to be green goods instead of
genuine aecsritiea. By such practices price ara msde without regard
The word security ought to mean security in Wall Street no lets
than elsewhere. The new Stock Exchange regulation will go far to
rehabilitate both nam and thing if the rale is made permanent, as
it ought to be.

THE MINUTE MAN.
OME of our esteemed contemporaries who have the military bug
flout the idea that the militia can be expanded into a fighting
force adequate for national defense. One in particular sneers
at the minute man.
Wo seem to recall that the minute man has shown what he can
do at a number of trying moments in American history'. He "fired
the shot heard round the world" at Concord Bridge. lie beat the
trained veterans of Wellington at New Orleans.
To tay that all the efficiency there can be in war must bo sought

male citizen between tho ages of eighteen and sixty-fire with the best
modern rifle it can buyA together with a proper supply of ammunition.
Each man must practice shooting at a target and make a record for
marksmanship up to Government requirements. Failing to qualify,
ho must servo a regular term with tho colors onco a year until hU

1NALLY tho great night of
tho premier of Uorace
Orlndon'a historical spec
tacular drama, "Tho Maid-
on Martyr," was at hand.
At Mr. Jarr'a suggestion the time
olook had boon brought up from Mr.
Jabea Smith' wholesale woollen ware-

aUlrway loading to the first balcony,
and all tho employees had been noti

tween half-past seven and otght

Thoae who didn't report or who rang
out before 10.S0 P. M when tho cur
tain went down, would bo sacked at
the shop, but those who put In their
time at the performanco were to be
paid for half a day extra.
Krltf, the shipping clerk, was per
sonally to marshal the porters and
truckmen of the firm In the gallery,
and each man was to bring his bale
hook, packing case hammer and m
puller, to help with the applause.
When Mr. Ham Blanger, the Brent
manager, saw these preparations he
gasped In open amatemont.

"It's too bad these aro stago secrets

Mr. legatory, tho press ogent. "The
