Universal Transfers
The Chamber of Commerce has taken
up the fight for universal ttransfers It
has directed its committee on legisla
tion to prepare a bill to be submitted to
Congress providing for interchangeable
transfers between the street railroads
in this cit, and it is to be presumed
that the committee will promptly act
This means that the proposition which
has been before Congress in the past
with the indorsement of the District
Commissioners now has the support of
one of the two representative business
organizations of the cit

A Tax for Church Members
The Westminster Prcsbvtcmn Church
in Milwaukee has solved tic riddle of
how to keep out of debt hv imposing i
lax on the incomes of its numbers In
comes of $1 000 or less arc assessed 2
per cent those irom $1000 up to $ooo
-) per cent Pew rents as well as collec
tions have been abohshul The church
made its budget in advance was enabled
to compute the expenditures ind to make
them fit the revenue and after trving
tin novil experiment for i vcar is not
onlv without i deficit, but Ins 1 surplus
whiih is to be tuvesttd
There is in obviois idvantijji in this
plan It gives a church an opportuiut
to regulate its expenditures bv its re
ceipts Also if once the members of
anv congregations vote to impose such
a tax it is reasonable to suppose that
no -one will trv to evade his moral ob
ligation to paV up promptlv or will fal
sifv regarding his assessment.
t the same time, we doubt if the cx-
penencc will be copied to any extent.
We fail to see how any church can make
an income tax a condition for admis
sion to membership On the other hand,
if members were accepted who refuse
to pay, there naturally would be engen
dered a feeling of resentment by those
who would feel that they were made to
pay more than their fellows And last,
but not least, an income tax levied by
a societ not under public control can
not help but disclose private affairs to
which cither rich or poor might object.

BAVARIAN PRINCE
NINETY YEARS OLD
In nonor of the Bavarian Prince Re
gent s ninetieth birthday, the entire Ger
man press teemed with laudatory arti
cles describing the reign and character
of this venerable and popular ruler
Prince LMtpold always has avoided noisy
and showy display He has found his
greatest pleasure among hunters or ar
tists rather than among sycophantic
courtiers Military pomp and the ac-l
clamatlons of a crowd he lias alwajs
avoided His desire was that his birth
daj shall be kept In the quietest fashion
and that should his people feel gratitude
to hlrn for anything he ma hive ac
complished during the forty-three vears
of ln regency, thev might rather give
erpresion to this feeling in works of gen
era! iharitv than in personal gifts to him
H, began life without anj prospects of
filling nis present high position and It
wis only after the death of his two
elder brothers the tragic fate of his
nephew Ludvvlg II and the hopeless
lunacv of his other nephew the present
King Otto that hi was proclaimed Re
gent. During his rcgemv Bavaria his
nofblv advanced all along the line and
although the power of the clerical part
ippircntl has increased the kingdom
still remains more democratic than Prus

CURIOUS BITS OF HISTORY

AN ALBINO KING OF ENGLAND
It is quite probable that Eng
land once had an albino for a
king Edward the Confessor
who reigned from 1042 to 106G
s said to have had long hair and
beard both as white as snow
His skin wis of a milki color
and his face inclined to roslness
His hands were"' long and veri
white Analblno ilwavs has a skin
of milki hue with hair of the same
color and eves with deep red
pupil and pink or blue Iris These
peculiarities are said to be eaused
bi a deficlenci of certain coloring
matter In the blood The name
albino was first given b the
Portuguese to negroes the found
on tho frlcan coast who were
mottled with white spots Al
binos nre found howtver iraong
all races of men and also among
somt of the lov er animals as
mice elephants ic From the de-sc-lptions
of King Edwards per

down to us and which arc evl

certain that he was an albino

pointing said Fred A Butterick of
Chicago who has just returned from a
tour of France and was seen at the New
Wlllard
In mi opinion, not onli Paris Itself
raid he but the Louvre, the 1 uxem
bourg and the Palace of ersailles have
been greatli overrated
If one goes up to the top of the Elfel
Tower and looks down upon the citv
he finds that nearli all the buildings have
black roofs and a uniformly dirty grai
appearance Large areas are built of a
gny freestone but most of the houses in
Paris are covered with a coat of plaster
a condition that would seem to add new
significance to the term plaster of parls
It is seldom that an uncovered brick U
to be seen In am building and the few
here and there that are uncovered have
been left so for purposes of design or
color efTe-t The buildings are nearli
all veri old sorre having stood for up
ward of 100 icars Their construction Is
therefore now quite Inadequate lacking
as thci do all modern ir nveniemes
Their av e-age height is about hv e htorles
veri seldom six I-rom the standpoint
of a real estate investment the whole
citv Is as a German wojld sai baufael
I "B which mans read! to be wrecked
u woulrl therefore be a hazardous under
taking to put anv large amojnt of monei
into Paris real estate with the view of
making a profitab e investment

Burr G Camplell of Topeka Kans
who was seen at the Raleigh recentlv
said that nee suicide Is so marked in
Kansas that schools In manv countrv
distr cts have been abandoned in other
localities the number of childrrn Is so
limited that tne consolidation of schools
has become an important question
This con lltion said Mr Campbell
is met prev ilcnt in the principal agri
cultural counties of the state and not
abli Jewell the leading counti of the
feta" m corn llfalfi and hogs The in
nual decrease of children in Kansas is
not peculiar to Jewell Lountv it is notic
ble In all igricultural communities of
native Vmericans The up to due
American farmers a-e living on $100 per
icre forms selling Jl wheat md riding
in automobiles but thev are not rearing
children nd so the school population ls
decreasing schools In man districts
hive been ibandoned and in other com
munities thev are being consolidated
In several large districts the pupils
are so few that no attempt is made to
hold school One district has been dis
solved and others would do well to send
heir pupils to neighboring schools where
the would have the advantage of com
petition in classes. The consolidated
school will be an inevitable result of this
constant decreast Consolidated schools
mean better schools hut It Is unfortunate

A curious, freak of nature that ap

F X Dorgan of El Paso Tex at the

This Is called a breathing cave The
cave Is In the lava formation on a high
tableland near Prescott In a wall of
this cave is a crevlte which Is probabl
three Inches wide and several feet long
A visitor stands ilose to the crack He
feels a current of air rushing out of It.
This Is not so strange But If Yp waits
long enough he will notice that the dl

The jieop'e of the nt hhliorhood have
