SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1895,
The government is really
to be congratulated on its enterprise
push and economy The
workmanship displayed in the
erection of a wall around the
pumping plant defies descrip
tion. The amount of bricks
daily laid by Mr. Howell's 'men
would puzzle an arithmetician.
It is rumored that the wall is
to bo the size of the Eiffel
tower. If so we will suggest
to the great superintendent to
put on one more workingman.
If not we fear lie won't bo
around when the wall is finished.
' David Starr Jordan is tho
first Presidont of the Leland
Staiifprd Junior University of
eminence and a recognized
educator. Presidont Jordan
contributed to the Forum for
May an article entitled "Pet-
tifogging Law Schools and an
Untrained Bar." Tho whole
article is too long for these
columns, so we make pertinent
extracts, as follows: "But with
all this, the professional school
of America, have not taken
their part, in the University
development. It has been said
of the American law schools,
for example, that 'they are the
weakest and therefore the
worst to be found in.any civi
lized country.' Broadly speaking,
and taking out some half
dozen notable exceptions (not
so many nor so notable as they
should be), this statement cannot
be denied. In Europe,. professional
training is in general
education. It iB not so in America.
It is here rather a 'practical
short cut' by which uneducated
or ineducable men
are helped to the rewards of
knowledge and skill with tho
least possible Ions of time. It
is' true, as President Eliot has
said, that into an American
law-school any man "can walk
from the street." But in most
of the States he can do better
or worse than this. Prom the
streot he can walk directly into
the profession of the law,
rogarding oven the formulae
of matriculation or graduation.
It is possible for us to enter
any one of the 'learned professions'
with no learning whatever.
In fact, in many of our
States, it requires no more preparation
to be admitted to the
bar than to be admitted to the
sawbuck. Fortunately, admission
.to either on those terms
carries with it no prestige or
social elevation whatever. But
the danger in the one case is
greater than in the other. Tho
inefficient lawyer may work
the ruin of interests entrusted
to him. Tho ignorant physician
is more dangerous than
the ptague. Tho incompetent
wood sawyer lianas only the
wood pile. A large part of our
criminal -records is devoted to
legal and medical malpractice.
In other words, our bulk of
crimo is swollen by robbery
and murder committed under
the guise of professional assist-
ance. When the protessions
cease to be Open wide to adventurers
and thieves, they
will rise to something of their
professional dignity. Incom
potent professional service is
always robbery. Moreover,
the politicians of each country
are, for the most part, its
lawyers. Our lawyers are our
rulers, and we can never hope
to see our States well governed
until its lawyers are well train
t i) i e T 1 i

Jordan's article applies with
great fprco here, as the most of
our lawyers have the same
training that American lawyers
have. If all signs do not fail
in dry weather wo have to pay
California, a writer of some for the inefficiency of a govern
ment composed largely of
lawyers. In closing, President
Jordan says: "The Fates
charge compound interest on
every human blunder, and they
have their own way at last.".

Economy is the watch
word. Government and private
concerns alike are interested
in solving financial ques
tions. The killing of the Income
Tax in the United States
has been a. surprise party to
many people, but at the same
time it has not been an un
pleasant surprise to the majority.
We realize of course that
the Cleveland administration
will now have its hands full
and we equally are aware of
the difficulties of the republic
of Hawaii. If the Independent
can be believed the government
is running behind every day.
No government can afford to
do without the tax-payers being
ready and willing to back
it up and on the ajert to dig
up the necessary wherewiths
and wherefors. To meet the
times we nave, exerted ourselves
and we have found a
"baby" that will beat anything
in its line. This "baby" is a
sewing machine and it ranks
with the smartest "babies" in
the world. You can sew anything
on it and do it just as
well as on a patent steam
foot tramping machine. The
"Baby" goes by hand and it
fills the ticket every time. To
meet the hard times we have
reduced the price of this infant
"sewer7' and we sell it at $3.!0
a piece. Three dollars and
a-half doesn't buy a "baby"
every day and hardly a govern
ment bond, DUt our sewing
machine is there for that small
We can also recommend a
whistle to. you. It is called
the Deyeline Whistle and a
devil of a whistle it is. It
sounds like a syren and it
makes noise enough to scare
away Thomas Square hoodlums
or even mounted police horses.
Our Seymour's trimmers are
the shears called for bv every
household. They are sharp,
cutting and irresistible. Once
used never forgotten especially
if used for scalping purposes.
In all the articles we have
mentioned to-day, we have
been dominated by a sense of
economy. We know that taxes
will go up and for the sake of
our customers prices will have
to go down. Now Whistle or
