Senator retire, there will be a most
lively scramble for his toga, and it
would be a hard matter to say who
would get it.
A correspondent writes us that in
his opinion it is about time for a
clean sweep from mayor to cart driv

After citing the familiar but amaz
ing fact that the annual income of
the United States government from
all sources is about nine hundred and
thirty million dollars, while the ap
propriations ol congress for the next
fiscal year are considerably In excess
of a billion dollars, the Baltimore
Sun aptly remarks:
This condition cannot continue in
definitely. That the government In a
time of profound peace when there
Is no reason for a vast expenditure
except on .account of the Panama ca
nal cannot keep within its Income
can be explained only on che score of
reckless extravagance. Champ Clark
and the Democrats contend that this
state of affairs calls for a thorough
investigation, and they propose thai
the various committees of the house
shall make an inquiry into every de
partment to find where and how he
money is spent.
The Atlanta Journal says the Dem
ocratic party could render the coun
try no service of more practical and
far-reaching Importance. Nor Is
there any cause to which a congress
man could devote his attention with
greater profit to the people. There is
little outward brilliancy :o this tak of
governmental economy and efficiency.
It offers no chance -or eloquent
speeches or grandstand plays, but it
lies at the very base of our national
The United States government to
day has four hundred and eleven
thousand, three hundred and twenty
two employes. In 1896, this number
was only one hundred and seventy
eight thousand, seven hundred and
seventeen, while Washington's ad
ministration managed the public's
business with one hundred and thir
The significant point ;s that while
the number of federal employes has
thus tremendously increased, meth
ods of administration have remained
virtually aa they were over a hun
dred years ago. Comparatively
speaklng, indeed, these methods are
far cruder than those of the nation'3
earliest and simplest davs.
Americans are known the world
over as a people of business compe
tence, as masters of affairs. In their
private enterprises, they have car
ried business efficiency toward per
fection. So deeply rooted in the pub
lic mind is the importance of this
idea, that when great systems of rail
roads recently sought to increase
their freight rates, they were told by
the Interstate commerce commission
that Instead of advancing their rates,
they should increase their efficiency
and economy of administration and
thereby make their income sufficient
to their needs.
Whenever the methods insisced
upon In private business are insisted
upon in the public's and the nation's
business, we shall have u government
that lives within its means and is
truly representative of the American
people. The purpose of the Demo
crats to investigate the methods of
federal departments from a business
point of view and to establish sys
tem in the existing carelessness is
timely and patriotic.
Bleeding the Country.
The ten members of the national
monetary commission now draw sal
aries of $7,500 a year each. When
the commission was originally ap
pointed, the members were not paid
salaries, inasmuch as they wore
members of the senate or the house
and there was a constitutional ob
stacle to the drawing of two salaries
by congressmen. Inasmuch, how
ever, as the members of the commis
sion in all cases ceased to serve In
congress with the end of the last
session, provision was made for the
payment of salaries to them just be
fore the adjournment.
The Springfield Republican says It
Is now a well-paid "lame-duck" com
mission, consisting of Ex-Senatjrt>
and Ex-Congressmen, who we e re
pudiated last fall by the people. The
lame ducks on the board are Ex-Sen
ators Nelson W. Aldriciv, Julius Caes
ar Burrows, Eugene Hale, Hernanuo
D. Money, Frank P. Flint, Henry to.
Teller and James P. Taliaferro, and
ex-Representatives James MacLach
lan, George W. Prince and Robert W.
Bonynge. The names of Messrs.
Prince and MacLachlpn were added
only last month in onier to provide
places for them in the public service.
Another "lame-duck" performance
that deserves criticism was the plac
ing of ex '"enator Warner of Missouri
upon the board of ordnance and for
tifications at a salary of $5,000 a
year. All such offices are practically
sinecures, and the effect is to pension
indirectly the occupants, say3 the Re
publican, which goes jn to say that
the multiplication of commissioner
ships under the federal government
should be investigated rigidly by the
Democratic house. That is good ad
vice, and the Democrats should act
on it at once. If the Democrats pro
pose to carry out their promise to re
duce expenses, this is a good place to
What i*; to Bo Done.
The New York World* thinks thai
sc-nie way should be devised by the
Semite and the Pre Jenl of with
drawing Statehood . om California
and reducing it to the rank of Ari
zona as a Territory, liefere adjourn
ing, the State Legislature ai Sacra
mento decided to submit to the peo
ple a constitutional amendment pro
dding for the recall of all'electi'.e
officers, including the judiciary.
Because the people of Arizona em
bodied a similar radical provision in
their new State Constitution they
are denounced as unfit for Statehood
anil threatened at Washington with
being held forever under a Territor
ial form of government. In the in
nocence of their sou's tiny only did
what their nearest neighbor among
the States proposes to do. and what
any other State has the right lo do if
i> wants to.
It will be remembered that Bailej
threatened to resign because the
Democrats on the judiciary commit
tee voted to admit Arizona to State
hood with this provision in her con
stitution. No doubt he will now take
the ground that the Territory of
Arizona ought to be barred from
Statehood for setting the State of
California a bad example. 'But that
would not punish California. The
question is what is to be done with
her and other States that persist in
adding these Democratic provisions
to their constitutions? The great
Bailey must be placated somehow.
Must Start Right.
"No young man starting out for
himself, being dependent upon his
own exertions, can afford unneces
sary expenses," says the Georgetown
Times. MHe must deny himself ex
tras or always remain poor. Even a
five cent cigar each day will amount
to $18.25 in one year; and one who
saves that aum will be much ahead
of one who spends it. And the habit
of saving will be worth everything.
If he saves $18.25 each year, only
putting it at six per cent, simple In
terest, it would in twenty years
amount to $570. So much for one
little trifle of indulgence. He who
would in a few years be independent,
and not envy the "capitalist," must
start right." Few young men will
agree with the above, but it is the
plain, simple truth. It is not meant
to be miserly, but saving and not
wasteful. One of the first lessons we
must learn, if we want to succeed, is
the lesson of sell-denial. We must
learn to deny ourselves those things
that we cannot afford, and not envy
our neighbor because he can have
luxuries, or even necessaries some
times, that our means will not per
mit us to indulge in. That is the
way to be happy.
