.RULE FOU K1CHMOM).
Cleveland will vote on a new charter
July 1. This act will mark the end of
n twelve-year struggle for home rule
in that progressive city. It is one of
the first fine results of the Ohio con
stitutional chaiiKcs granting self-grov
ernment to the cities. The entire coun
try is interested to see what Cleveland,
admitted to bo the most forwa t .1-thi ah -

Mayor Newton Baker has issued a j
formal statement, approving the char- ;
tor as simple, complete, and free fr m ,
experimental or dubious provisions. :
Ji is flexible and easily amended. ,
It is a selection of the modern success- j
tul methods of government, aimed at ;
retting democracy in action without ?
saciillcing efficiency. it tries to give j
the people disc, t control of their homo j
government, without allowing popular j
ignorance or prejudice to interfere with
e-xrvrt administration. Some of the
striking inclusions are:
Party primaries are eliminated. Nom- j
ination is by petition, and no party j
tign will appear nil the ballot. Also,
we hope, no futile referendum!). Pref
erential voting is established, by which j
she choices of the majority are select
ed, find minority rule prohibited.
The short ballot principle is wisely
observed. The people will vote only j
for the mayor and the members of the !
council. At one election each voter |
will have to express but two choices:
for mnyor and one councilman. Elec- 1
'ivo officials- are subject to recall on j
petition of l"i.(!?"?(' for general officers,
and of t>00 for ward officers.
There will be a council of twenty
six chosen from wards for two years. ]

honesty and fairness of no person, but

1 heso are tho days when ice ceases
to bo a commodity and changes into
a miracle Water itself is most won
derful. When It transmutes itself into [
a solid crystal reservoir of winter col?i
it becomes a very Jewel to prove Xa- j
ture's love for men. We are too likely !
to accept these splendid everyday gifts ,
with no thought of gratitudo. We |
should eivo silent thanks for tho grate- i
ful and delicious coolness whereby we I
can mitigate the ardors or summer
We should be the more grateful be- '
cause ice Is not a necessity. It could
have been omitted from the world, as
far as man is concerned, and s.itnehow
life would have gone on, but one bit
of happiness would have been forever
unknown. Water we must have. Air I
is life Itself. lco is :i i,o,,n. a Kift. a
supremely beautiful token of kindli
ness In creation. It is of that glorious
group of natural luxurl. s. like tho color
of flowers and the keen sense of bodilv i
?lust think what tortures a day of
00 tempera'.uro would bo without tho
frigid consolations of ico. What would
morning be without the first cold drink \
to arouse tho parched spirit after a

More than all. what would tho M,-k

There Is nothing In the world more
pleasing than the relief of ice in the

WHAT ONK MAX I>1IJ KOIt HIS C1TV. j
When first wo read that Harvard. j
never prodigal in the bestowal of hor
honorary degrees, had conferred an j
A. >1.. honoris causa, upon Elliott Hunt [
Pendleton, wo woiyJ.ered why. "Who j
is he and what has ho dono?" was a |
natural inquiry. Now wo have been |
told. He is tho first citizen of Cin
cinnati. n genuine reformer who has
clone tilings. Since 1003 ho has taken
enough time from the practice of law
to publish tho Citizens' Bulletin, a ?
journal "intelligently arid ardently de- i
voted to municipal reform." Through
its columns things In the community j
requiring improvement havo been de- j
scribed; the progress of improved gov- i
ernment throughout tho United States
has thcro been outlined In nn educa
tional and Inspiring way. At all times
Pendleton has "preached the gospel of
good government and feared not to ,
name names." i
At first the local politician?, skopti- j
cal as to the sincerity of any reformer,
wondered "what Pendleton was after."
There was little fruit as the result of
his early labors, but he kept on ham- I
mering. Ho proved I1I3 sincerity by |
his perseverance. When Boss Cox ruled
Cincinnati with tho power of a petty :
emperor, Pendleton kept right after j
him. and never lot tip- Now Cox is
shorn of his power. Cincinnati has a
progressive Mayor. Municipal admin- '
istratlon has been improved Much of
what has been wrought is due to the
initiative and work of IVndb t m. He '
has been a useful public servant and
a militant citizen. Tt has been w? 11
said of him: "Wo can think of few
bettor examples of the service collepo
men can render to this country, each 1
in his place, and tho crown of it is ;
the high resolution and unselfi: "ness
of the man."

To (he Kditor of The Times-Diana tch: |
Sir,?Permit si very humble layman
of the Kpiscopp 1 Church of Virginia
to express hi;i feeling:, with t gard to
the ;n tion taken recently by our great
church on the question of "The Ku
gi i.ical Marriage."
All of tho traditions and history of
tho Episcopal Church have appealed to
mo becauso of their stern, strict and
sometimes severe adherence to the re- :
quirements of church dignity and con- j
servatism. A year ago, had any one i
suggested that she would have taken
a step like this. I would hsive ridiculed
tin- idea, but now, with Unit broad,
far-reaching step. one that goes
straight to the coie of si crying sin of.
our day, one thsit will protect our girls i
and our women, our sisters and the
children of this day and of the days
that aro to come, I want to say that I
never loved my church so much, nor
was I ever so proud of her as I am
now. T,. W. HOFFMAN.

.Sir,?An old landmark Is being re
moved at 415 West Broad Street that
has stood tho paco of tlmo, It having
been occupied by our townsman, John
Stelnbrecher, Sr. and family for over
forty years. In ante-bellum days !t
was the rendezvous for many a weary
traveler of old Henrico County, It
being used he for* the war as a tavern
and general store, whora there wa3
many a story told of those long since

Where Jefferson Sliil Lives
The L'nlversity of Virginia, whoso
final exercises have just been con
cluded, is an instit'jtioVi which is for
tunate not ot iv Isi it:- name, but in t!io
fact til: t it live i up I" a great ho
und all that ii implies. .1 ? net-son's
wisdom was never better illustrated
thissi by his interest in this c>e-it foun- !
'".ati"M, and the spirit and It >ii vidunlit y i
which were breathed into it at the be
ginning have lost tiothinv in power
with its growth. In spite or' the limited
rij.i.tts of t i: <? State for many years
at'tor the <v: I War, and of the incroas- j
itig educational competition within its
own borders, as well a a north and south i
of it, it has held its own scholastic
< rticlenc.v and in the wide nnd unusual
influence which it wields. It has num- ,
bcred. and .still number.'?, among its
in t: wetoi.; mini of international (lis- !
Unction in their several fields, but tho
position it holds is not ascribable to4
marked superiority in this respect over j
other institutions of learning in this;
country. And In the matter of scienti- j
lie and educational equipment it has I
not been able to compare with many ,
other more richly endowed colleges and j
universities. It has been the recipient
of few preat gifts: it has not been the
special favorite of multimiilionaires,
and it has not been abb to appeal to i
public patronage by the magnificence |
of its structures or the splendor of
:>i:v of its accessories. ^ *t there is no j
Institution which has exercised a broad
er or a stronger influence upon the
minds of the successive generations
that have been drawn to it since Jef- j
ferson's day. Much of the genius of ;
that great statesman and philosopher
was transmitted to this offspring. |
Those who go there may not always
come away pre,-it scholars, but most of j
Uiem get there what is gotten at few j
other institutions?-a just view of life, ;
a broad trend of thought, an enthu- i
siasm f.<- hir/h personal .' tandasda and
ideals, which can nuver be wholly for- |
gotten or lost.
In a word, the special influence of
this great and beneficent seat of learn
ing is to be found in Its peculiar ca- |
pacity to make meii and to make
thinkers. It cannot make great men
or great thinkers of all of its students,
because it does not work miracles, but
the invisible and yet pervasive edu
cational genius that presides over it
tends to bring out the best of the. man
hood nnd the intellect that is in thesn.
A roll call of its alumni would be an
swered by voices from every part of
this and many other countries, and
the nfimes which it has contributed to
the national hall of fame have been
both numorous nnd potent. It Is a
really great Institution with which
Jefferson's namo and spirit arc so
closely associated?a university lp the j
best sense of the word, one as distlsic
tive and traditional in Its sphere as
any of the. famous schools of tho Old
World, and one with a peculiar mission
and a peculiar power. May It continue
to grow in strength nnd never loso
