KEEPING HOUSE FOR US
The President-elect, Gov. Woodrow Wilson, has a new idea of
government, or rather he has a new form of expression for the old
idea. He says that the government should "keep house" for the
wliolo people. We like tho idea, and for the next four years shall
look upon him as our chief house-keeper. The following extract
from an article in the November Woman's Home Companion is an am
plification of the idea and is worthy the attention of every patriotic
"Every dollar that tho government spends ought to
bo spent us carefully as if tho resources of tho country
wero limited. Every dollar of expenditure ought to
menn something tlono or provided for the people.
Wasto is also weakness. Inetliclency brings confusion.
"It Is part of the new meaning of government,
therefore, that Its resources aro not to be put at the dis
posal of a governing class or of any limited set of gov
erning Influences, but that thono who exercise Its au
thority must 'keen house" for the whole people; must use
the money raised by taxes as if it were expended in
trust to produce tho best possible results in the order
ing nnd Humiliation of our life.
"It is an Interesting circumstnnce that government
Is becoming less and less a business for politicians;
tlmt minds and onergles of every kind are turning
toward It ns part of tho general enterprlhe of life. The
reason wo want our government to bo freo from every
kind of private or nnrrow control Is that wo want to have
Usee iihhv things than itwould seeif 1 1 served only nfow.
T1ioh who conduct It ought to havo a vision of a nation
itself ought to bo sensitive lo Impulses from every quar
ter. The statesman should sltdown with tho philanthro
pist, with thennglneer.wltli the forest expert, with the
student of soils and agricultural method, with masters
of technical and vocational education as well as with
financiers and lawyersnnd mnniifacturorHnnd merchants
nnd those whoso Interests have usunlly been at the cen
ter of policy. Though be cannot himself keep the life
of a nation ns a wliolo In his mind, ho can nt least make
sure that ho is taking counsel with those who know,
that his sympathies may be open upon overy side, and
that ho may seek to servo civilization nnd "humnnitv,
not a party or any selfish program."

Dear Readers of Tbo Citizen:

forgotten sent after us, and I finished
writing tho main points In my report
for tho Trustees. At night wo visit
ed tho moving picture show, nnd tool'
tho train East at i): 10 p. m. It Is
a short night as one travels eastward,
as tho sun rises earlier at tho place
whero wo aro in tho morning. We had
a long day on tho train finding sever
al pleasant traveling companions, In
cluding Ex-Congressman W. G. Hun
ter, and U. 8. Sonator. Paynter, Wash
ington was reached an hour late,
but wo found a convenient train
and reached Now York at 9 p. m. ar
riving at tho New Pennsylvania sta
tion, a marvel of stone and Iran con
struction. Wo went directly to the
Now York Central station nnd Mrs.
Frost was sent on tor a second night's

ful and exciting, but I prefer a small
town or tbo country.
Yours for tho Mountains,
Wm. Goodell Frost.
