As civil service has been extended it has proved that it results
in efficiency and economy in the conduct of public business. This
being true it should receive the hearty support of every good citi
zen. The old "spoils" system was absolutely wrong because there
should be no spoils as but one thing-should be considered in public
business, just as in private business, How can it be bestconducted ?
If appointive officials are competent they should be retained regard
less of their political affiliations.
A recent amendment to the state constitution required that the
legislature pass a civil service law. The last legislature passed such
a law. There is talk now that the incoming legislature will emas
culate this law, that the Republicans will destroy civil service,
simply because many of those holding office are Democrats. If this
is done the Republicans will show that they are unfit to run the
state's business. If the present civil service law is defective and
weak it should be remedied and strengthened. It should be so made
that a person will secure public office on account of his ability to
fill it and for no other reason. It should be made a matter of
For too long our public affairs have been run on the basis of
fighting over the offices, making it simply a question of who would
hold the offices and the people paying dearly for this privilege.
The increase in efficiency in postal matters since the inaugura
tion of civil service is one of the best arguments in its favor. If
when President Wilson went into office all the rural mail carriers,
all the clerks in the post offices, the city mail carriers, the railway
mail clerks, etc. , had been changed, what would have happened to
the postal business ?
If the Republicans want good government in Ohio, they will
increase the scope and strengthen the provisions of the present
civil service law and we believe they will do this. If they make of
thier victory simply the opportunity to give jobs to men whose
main qualification is their ability to deliver a few votes on election
day, they should be one termers.
Thoughts For To-morrow.
Tomorrow is Christmas, the birthday of 'Christ. It will be
celebrated throughout the Christian world, but will it be celebrated
in the spirit He would desire. He was the greatapostle, the Prince
of Love. Love is the central thought of all his teaching, of all his
Turn where you will in the gospels and you find him healing
the sick and the afflicted ; feeding the hungry ; clothing the naked ;
and not only doing these things but urging and commanding his
disciples and followers to do likewise.
As to the spirit in which we should observe Christmas and of
greater importance the principles which should control our lives,
we here quote His own words and His teachings abound with
similar directions :
"Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do
to you, do ye even so to them." n
"Give to them that asketh thee, and from him that would bor
row of thee turn not away."
"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to
them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you
and persecute you." a.
"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."
"Woe unto you ye scribes an J Pharisees, hypocrites ! for ye pay
tithe of mint, and anise and cummin and have omitted the weightier
matters of the law judgment, marcy and faith ; these ought ye to
have done, and not to leave the others undone."
"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these
mybrethern, ye have done it unto me."
"Wnosoever will be great among you shall be your minister;
and whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
For even the son of man came not to be ministered unto but to
"Father forgive them ; for they know not what they do."
"He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone
"By this shall all men know
have love one to another."
"These things I command you,
Should Old Parties Die?
We have been charged with the terrible crime of wanting to
see the Republican party die. To this charge we plead guilty and
we would also plead guilty to the charge of desiring the death of
the Democratic party. We believe the passing of both the old
parties would be a good thing for this country. By this we do not
want to be understood as being opposed to political parties, but we
believe that the Republican and Democratic parties have outlived
their usefulness. The dividing line between the two parties is ar
tificial and as long as they continue the dominant parties of this
country sectionalism will exist.
Every man by temperament and disposition is either a conser
vative or a liberal. Neither the Republican nor Democrat party is
distinctively a conservative or liberal party. In each there is a
conservative and a liberal faction. These factions within the par
ties are continually striving for control. Sometimes one dominates
and sometimes the other. It often happens that one of the parties
is conservative in one state and liberal in another. Within each
party can always be found prominent leaders who have diametrically
opposite views of how the government should be conducted. In our
opinion the conservatives of the Republican and Democratic parties
should belong to one party and the liberals of the Republican and
Democratic parties should be in another party.
Of course this might be accomplished and the old names re
tained by one of the parties becoming distinctly conservative and
the other distinctly liberal. But custom and habit have a strong

that ye love one another."
hold on all of us, and as long as the old names are retained many
will vote the ticket with the old familiar name at the head.
Sectionalism is injurious to any country and we believe will
exist in this country as long as the parties retain the names Re
publican and Democratic. Why do we have the Democratic "solid
south?" Why do thousands in the northern and middle western
states vote the Republican ticket? It is because of the passion and
prejudice created by the Civil War. Men are still voting as they
shot, or as their father's shot. And in the south there is the ad
ditional fear of negro domination and there the Republican party
is considered to stand for just one thing, negro domination. Both
north and south are voting the Democratic or Republican ticket on
issues settled fifty years ago.
As long as we have the Republican and Democratic parties we
believe that the parties will be divided on artificial lines and the
country will be cursed with sectionalism. We would, therefore,
be glad to see both of the old parties die and two new parties take
The "Tin key Scramble" having been called off there is not
even a chance for the editor to have turkey on Christma3.

Garry Hermann is a great man in baseball during' the winter,
but the fans would rather have some one president of the Cincin
nati team who would get a decent team for the summer even if he
was not so much in the winter.
We thought of a paragraph the other day, or dreamed we did
which we considered good enough to be a companion of that great
paragraph which the editor of the Ohio State Journal intends to
write soon and send echoing and re-echoing, verberating and re
verberating, ricoheting and re-ricocheting down the corridors of
time. After you have glanced over this column it not will be neces
sary for us to tell you that we have forgotten it.
