TO END THE LAW'S DELAYS. ?
In making the proposals for curing
llit? law?, delays which Governor Sul
70V transmitted to tlio Legislature yes?
terday the Board of Statutory t'onsol
Idfllion I?' generally guided by the ex?
perience of r.n-lainl. If these proposals
??hould be adopted just ice would cease
to l?e. 88 it Ions since ceased to he in
Lngland, where similar changes were
adopted, a game in which the empha?
se is on the rule? of play rallier than
on the results, No more valuable re?
form could he brought about than
thi??. 'I lie hoard which proposes tli?*

leading members of Ihe legal profession
in various parts of th?? ?--t?te, and their
recommendations enrfy great weight.
It Is bettor tn abandon the Tode of
Civil Procedure than t<> patch it. It
has already been pat ?lied beyond hu?
man ?ndentandlnf. Erorj year tbe
Legislature has tinkered faith it. until]
it is ?jo complicated that familiarity j
with it is a Specialty Ig the legal pro-j
fesslon. Resides, the experience Of
other communities is all in favor of a I
??h?rt practice act. As for the other|
changes proposed, it i?- plain common j
sense that "the court should have full
"power lo disregard, in the interest of
"justice, at any stage of the ease, any
"mistake, irregularity or defect which
"does not affect the substantial rights
"of a party." That needs only to he
stated to meet the approval of any sen?
Another recommendation equally sen?
sible would put an end to the scheme?
by which trial judges are trapped into
errors and the patience of the litigant
with justice on his side is worn out b\
his opponent through appeal* and new
trials. T'nder tbe proposed role the
Appellate Court. instead of ordering a
Mr trial, would "take further proofs
"when deemed necessary for bringing
"out all the facts material to the con
"troversy. and render final judgment
"in accordance with the law applicable
"to all the fa?ts of t!m ease thus
"brought before tli?> Appellate Court."
Why not? Why order a new trial and
put the litigants and Hie state to great
expense, when all that is necessary 1?
for the Appellate Court to hear the
wltnes? or nlineases \\h?>?e testimony
bad been improperly excluded mid ren?
der dertsloa accordingly. The tiling is
so obv|..iis,v tin- sensible and natural
tiling to do ihat it is diflicult to speak
with patience of the failure to do It
during all these years in which bar
associations and tbe bench have been
savins 1t ought to bo d?,n?v
Tli?? other proposals are too technical
for a aenspaper te pas? upon with cou
fiderx-e. Hut the high standing of
those who nahe theai and the good
s.'iise ?if ihe re?! of the lmimmetula
tioiis inspire faith in these. The de?
murrer, which it i? proposed to al?ollsh,
is familiar to the public as one of the
most prolific sources of legal delay,
rpon it lawyers are wont to exhaust
the resources of niedlnvnl subtlety.
?.??vernor Sulzcr is right In urging
that the lioard making these recom?
mendations lie continued in office until
it can draft hills embodying Its pro
pvosals. If public opinion Is sufficiently
insistent a great reform may be ac?
THE 17TH AMENDMENT.
New York has promptly given its
approval to the constitutional amend?
ment providing for tbe direct election
of United States Senators. It Is ap?
parently the third state to ratify, rati?
fications by Massachusetts and Mon?
tana having been reported last year.
Most of the states will undoubtedly
a?'t more expeditlously on this amend?
ment than they did on the income tax
amendment, since popular opinion ha.?
been prepared for Its seceptance by
un agitation extending over twenty
jears and machinery now exists in
thirty-two states through which the
choice of Senators has been virtually
taken out of the hands of the legis?
latures. It would be better, perhaps,
to leave each state free to follow one
method or the other, according to Its
own preference. But the election last
fall of so many legislatures In sympa?
thy with the demand for tbe direct
method, universally applied, makes tho
consent <?f the nation to a constitu?
tional change a practically foregone
Except for the attitude of some of
the Southern states there would be
little doubt of ratification within the
next twelve or fifteen months. The
Legislature of <.e??igln passed a reso?
lution lust summer attacking the valid?
ity of Ihe resolution through which
Congress suluiiitted the amendment
-iti/1 rebuking Speaker Clark for de?
claring that a two-thirds majority for
Ihe resolution was recorded in the
House Of Kepreasentatives. But apart
from that technical and not yery for
mlflable objection, the states of Oeor
Si-i. Alabama. Florida. Mississippi.
Louisiana and South Carolina are op
tiosetl to the arueudmcut as drawn, lie
cause it recognizes tin.? pairar Of ? ?>ii
uress to regulate tbe luanner in which
Senators are to he chosen at the polls.
These states fear interference with
tlieiv election laws on the part ?if Con
gr?*ss? without much ground, appai
?ntly. since liny OOOCPdO that Con?
gress has always had the ?pawn to
regulate the direct cholo?' of numbers
of the House of Representatives.
The states of the Far South may
stand out against approval gad thus
cause n delay of n ??otiple of yeggs.

THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL.
Ihe H?>use of Representatives is pon
standing out single handed against the
erei'tion of the proposed Lincoln Ma
morial on the Mall at Washington.
The Senate has approved the plan?
for the structure recommended by the
federal Fine Arts Commission and by
the Lincoln Memorial Commission.

PROTECTING THE CHILDREN.
Senator Warner's faefory investi
! zating commission lias introduced bills
! In the Legislature forbidding the ein
! ploynient of children under fourteen
! In canneries nnd at tenement hougfl
?nbor done for factories. To pass tin's??
laws would be merely to apply in the
industries affected the general p?.li?y
of the state with regard to the labor of
children. No sufficient reasons exist
f?>r making an exception in favor <?f
the canneries and of the industries
carried on in tenements. Conditions
have so ?*hang??d as to call for state
Interference. American parents might
have been trusted not to overwork
their children either In the neighbor
ing canneries or in their homes. The
alien parents. Who now supply most
of the children for these kinds of
work, cannot be so trusted. They nre
not restrained by the public opinion
which was a sufficient factor for the
protection of children under simpler
?ondltions In the smaller towns of 11
generation ago. where everybody knew
what his neighbor was doing.
The laws proposetl would no doubt
cause some hardship in Individual
cases, where the child might safely
work nnd where the parent, perhaps ?
widowed mother, needed help. But so
does the law which forbids a boy
under fourteen to work In an office ov
a grocery store. No better way for pro
i tc-tlng children has been devised than
by a general prohibition.
These measures if enacted will doubt
loss be hard to enforce at first. The
State Commissioner of Labor has Just
reported that in many commiinitle-s it
Is Impossible to obtain convictions for
the violation by employers of the laws
for the protection of women and chil?
dren ; and In agricultural communities
where canning is done local sympathy
will probably at first be with the can?
ner rather than with the children of
the aliens whom the law is intended to
But this generation is considerate of
children as compared with the past,
one ??f Its good points is its will t..
assure to them, mi far aa It can, a child?
hood unspoiled by exi'esslve labor or
cruelty. It Is not too large a "sll.-e ?.f
happiness" to give to the little children
of the cannery workers security from
th? trrack of the padrone's whip. The
most backward community from ?i
humane point <?f view will soon come
to see this. It will he shamed out of
its indifference. The law. as an ex?
pression <>f the sentiment of the whole
State, will help to shame It.
The Heuiiieratic majority In the
House of Repr?senla live? has failed t"
make good i's purp'ise to re|>eal the
cxe, ulive order? by which President
Taft recently covered ."."?.??fKi fourth
??lass postmasters into the classltled
servl.e. In committee of the whole,
where there are no rollcalls, the revo?

when? member.? had to go on record,
the earlier majority melted away. Y>t
