The national government has as ai
ultimate resort for control of child la
bor the use of the interstate commerc(
clause to prevent the products of chili
labor from entering into interstate com
merce. But before using this it ough
certainly to enact model laws on the
subject for the territories under it
own immediate control.
Presidential Campaign Expenses.
Under our form of government rot
ing is not merely a right, but a duty
and, moreover, a fundamental and nec
essary duty if a man is to be a gooc
citizen. It is well to provide that cor
porations shall not contribute to presi
dential or national campaigns and, fur
thermor to provide for the publica
tion of contributions and expend!
tures. There is, however, always dan
ger in laws of this kind, which fron
their very nature , difficult of en
forcement, the dange~r being lest the:
be obeyed only by the honest and dis
obeyed by the unscrupulous, so as tc
act only as a penalty upon honest men
Moreover, no such law would hampe:
an unscrupulous man of unlimitet
means from buying his own way intF
office. There is a very radical meas
ure which would, I believe, work s
substantial improvement in our sys
tem of conducting a campaign, al
though I am well aware that it wil
take some time for people so to famil
larize themselves with such a proposa
as to be willing to consider its adop
tion. The need for collecting largi
campaign funds would vanish if con
gress provided an appropriation for the
proper and legitimate expenses of each
of the great national parties, an appro
priation ample enough to meet the ne
cessity for thorough organization and
machinery, which requires a large ex
penditure of money. Then the stipu
lation should be made that no party
receiving campaign funds from the
treasury should accept more than a
fixed amount from any individual sub
scriber or donor, and the necessar3
publicity for receipts and expenditures
could without difficulty be provided.
The president recommends legisla
tion to increase the number of officers
in the army, especially in the medica
corps. The rate of pay of officers
should be greatly increased, he de
eldares. There should be a relatively
even greater increase in the rate of
pay of enlisted men if we are to keer
the army in shape to be effective in
time of need. The president recom
mends severe examination of officers
for promotion up to the rank of major.
From that point promotion should be
purely by selection. He speaks of the
recent physical test of army officers
with emphatic approbation and recoin
mends a bill equalizing the pay ol
officers and men of the army, navy,
marine corps and revenue cutter serv
Concerning the navy the presideni
In my judgment, we should this
year provide for four battleships. Bui
It is idle to build battleships unless, in
addition to providing the men and the
means for thorough training, we pro.
vide the antilflries for them-unless
we provide docks, the coaling stations,
the colliers and supply ships that they
need. We are extremely deficient in
coaling stations and docks on the Pa
cific, and this deficiency should not
longer be permitted to exist. Plenty
of torpedo boats and 4estroyers should
be built Both on the Atlantic and Pa
effic coasts fortifications of the best
type should be provided ,foi- all our
Until our battle fleet is much larger
than at present It should never be split
into detachments so far apart that they
could not in event of emergency be
speedily united. Our coast line is on
the Pacific just as much as on the At
lantic. The battle fleet should now
and then be moved to the Pacific.'just
as at other times it should be kept in
the Atlantic. When the isthmnian canal
is built the transit of the battle fleet
from one ocean to the other will be
comparatively easy. ~Until It is built
I earnestly hope that the battle fleet
will be thus shifted between the two
oceans every year or two. The battle
fleet is about starting by the strait of
Magellan to visit, the Pacific coast.
Sixteen battleships are going under the
command of Rear Admiral Evans. while
eight armored cruis6rs and two :other
battleships will meet him in San Fran
cisco, whither certain torpedo destroy
ers are also going. No fleet of such
size has ever made such a voyage, and
It will be of very great educational use
all engaged in it. The, only way by
which to teach officers and mer how
to handle the fleet so as to meet every
possible strain and emergency in time
of war is to have them practice under
similar conditions in time of peace.
The president recommends the in
creased pay for both officers and enlist
ed men and advises promotion by se
lection above the grade of lieutenant
In foreign affairs, the president says.
this countrys steady policy is to be
have toward other nations as a strong
and self respecting man should behave
toward the other men with whom he
Is brought into contact. In other words,
our aim is disinterestedly to help other
nations where such help can be wisely

Better a conservative Interest on your deposit with its safe

makes it so. Likewise our Board of Directors is a guarantee
