The voting machine was tried In
Cincinnati In 1896 and found valuable
only for making rapid returns of the
result of elections. Cltlen all over the
country are reporting dissatisfaction

It discourages Independent voting, since
It requires some Ingenuity to work the
levers so as to vote a split ticket. In
that respect, therefore, the machine is
a good thing for the political boss and
for unscrupulous politicians. More
over, It Is reported that the machine
can be made to file an Incorrect report
—In other words, It can be manipulated.
For these and other reasons Los
Angeles should steer clear of Investing
money in any such enterprise. The

THE MILK IN THE COCOANUT
The greatest fight that will come up
in congres at this winter's session will
be on the question of railroad rate regu
lation. The president stands squarely
committed to the people's causo in this,
and Is bringing to bear all the power of
his office to accomplish some of the re
forms that the country Is demanding.
Doubtless the house of representatives,
being clOße to the people, elected
directly by them, and of short tenure
of office, will head the demands and
afford the desired relief, so far as lies
In its power.
But the senate will undoubtedly op
p6se the wishes of the people, at least
at first. Possibly public opinion will
prevail In the end, but it will be only
after a sharp and bitter fight, If then.
The senate, unlike the house. Is not a
creature of the people direct, but a
product of a roundabout method of
election and Is therefore rather heedless
of the popular will.
The leader of the senate Is Nelson
Aldrlch of Rhode Island. Mr. Aldrlch
is avowedly a rallrond senator, a cham
pion- of corporate interests, an apostle
of the sanctity of special privileges.
Aligned with him are such corporate
owned associates as Elklns of West Vir
ginia, Penrose of Pennsylvania, Platt
and Depew, the twin unspeakables o£
New York; Dick of Ohio' and several
more. They all stand together, with the
railroads and against the people.
And well they may; they are merely
the representatives in the senate of the
railroads. Platt, for Instance, heads
a great express company: Depew is the
Vanderbilt man in the New York Cen
tral. Penrose is owned by the Pennsyl
vania railroad. Elklns likewise looks
after the.Kanawha lines — and so on.
What can be expected of such corpora
tion agents? . . ■'.
And Aldrlch? Aldrich's son is the
son-in-law of John D. .Rockefeller!
Rockefeller, more than any man in
the world, has benefited :by railroad
discrimination, rebates, adjustable
tariffs and crookedness generally. He
is the richest man on earth, and his
great ambition is to become creation's
first billionaire. Young. Aldrich is pre
sumptively, through his wife, one of
Rockefeller's heirs. What, in the way of
legislation for the people, may be ex
pected from Nelson W. Aldrich and the
coterie of men of his Ilk in the senate?
That's the milk in the railroad rate
STATUS OF "RAMBUNCTIOUS"
Every great movement, upheaval,
war or happening generally affecting
a people, brings forth, to an extent,
a language of Its own. From the queer
jumble of mixed tongues, unusual
events, odd combinations, spring
strong words, perhaps slang, even
profane, that find their way into the
public prints and are. after a while,
if they possess the aptitude and virility
requisite, Into the language of the peo
The lexicons are slow to adopt these
terms. The word "graft" is as well
known In the United States today as
any that falls from the lips of man.
Yet it is In no dictionary, nor has It
ever been defined. It has come to the
fore bo very recently that, while it is
a classic, it is a novitiate as well.
The Insurance investigation Is brew-
Ing a strange tongue in its pot of hell
broth, and every once in a while a new
word bubbles over and is caught up by
the people and appropriated. Tho lat
est to achieve place in this way is
"rambunctious" — "our rambunctious
friend up the river," as Chauncey. De
pew remarked. This word appeared in
a letter describing, a certain individual
who, it seems, appeared at certain Ir
regular and unwelcome times and de
manded (and secured) money. True,
on the wire, the word became "can
tankerous," but that word is in the
dictionary, so it doesn't count.
Now, what is "rambunctious"? What
Is its derivation. Its exact shade of
meaning, its application? Does it take
its significance from the animal whose
name forms Its first syllable? And ih
it to become a regular part of our
All of this It is difficult to answer.
Judging by the habits and demeanor of
the "friend" referred to, the word
must apply to a persistent demand for
coin, but whether legitimate demand
or holdup, it is hard to say. Again,
does a persuasive application come
under thisheiid, or must there be a
certain amount of persistence? Would
a "gentle touch" be rambunctious, or
a footpad's "hands up"?
It Is well at the very start, in adgpt-
Ing a new word,, to have Us meaning
will defined and limited. -Will the

LIKES OUR POLICY
Peruvian Paper Sees Advantage In
Closer Relations With the
By Associated Press.
LIMA, Peru, 'Dec. 3. — The Comerclo,
commenting on the appointment of
Felipe Pardo as Peruvian minister to
the United States, says it is necessary
that Peru should be prepared in a new
direction. The policy of the United
States, It says, 1s evident from the pos
sible visit to Brazil of Mr. Root, the
American secretary of state, to attend
the Pan-American congress at Rio
Janerlo if it should be held there. Peru
is not wavering before the future, the
paped adds, and it applauds the presi
dent's initiative and says it Is as
sured that closer relations between the
United States and Peru will bring to
Peru more capital and more enterprise,
The fears of some of the Kpauixh-
American nutions regarding the United
States, the Comerclo says, are inex
plicable and the ideas of conquest held
by Peruvians are absurd. Commercial
sway by the United States, the ,paper
contends, should be desired, as it would
result in the peopling and developing
of unproductive regions.
Senor Pardo, the Comercio concludes,
holds these Ideas and is the right man
in the right place.

will this week have another seven days
of comedy, the organization's most suc

funny play "Because She Loved Him
So" will be the hill.
This is the play in which Arnold Daly;
now the recognized interpreter of
George Bernard Shaw's plays in this
country, made his first success. In the
Belasco cast Richard Vivian will have
Daly's original role, and as the methods
of these two bright young actors are
very much alike the Belasco patrons
may confidently look forward to an ex
ceptionally clever performance from
Vivian tonight. •
George W. Burnum, Joseph A. Gal
braith, Howard Scott, Eugenic Thais
Lawton, Louise Royce, Virginia Brls
sac and Adele Farrington will all have
roles of importance In "Because She
Loved Him So."
The play deals with the troubles of
n young married couple, the wife being
inordinately jealous, while her husband
Is an easy-going sort of a fellow with ■
never a thought of another woman but j
his better half. Their quarrel Is brought I
home to the old father and mother of
the wife, a pair of married people who
have never exchanged a cross word dur
ing the entire period of their married ex- i
Istence. In order to show their daugh
ter how preposterous her position Is,
the aged people simulate a hot dispute
and strangly enough, tho advent of a I
beautiful Spanish woman causes the
old people to take on every evidence of
actuality. The fun is of the uproarious
order during the three acts of the play.i
and there is never a let-up In the ac
tion or the laughter from the time the!
curtain rises until its final fall.

Rickey until today to make up to hla
wife, ordering that unless Rickey pro
vided o home for her in that time he
would make a decree requiring: him to
pay her $7.50 a week alimony.
In court today Rickey's counsel stated
that the couple have been living to
gether for more than a week and the
husband reports that their life thus far
has been peaceful, quiet and happy.
