The spending of credit on subscrip
tions to the Banner to the extent per
tnltted by the postal law, baa resulted
unsatisfactorily and caused a great
deal of confusion The experience den
onstrates that an absolutely payaaat-in-advance
system is essential, aad
with this purpose in view, the Baaaer
will go onto a cash In advanoe system
on April 1st. Most of the Baaaer sub
scribers have been paying 1b advance
and it Is only the comparatively few
who will thus bo required to conform
to the advance paying rule, Suescrib--ers
who are not paid up will please
call at the Banner office before April
1st, and arrange their subscriptions,
or send the same by nail.
On that date the namea of all who are
not paid In advance will be wrapped
from the mailing list and thereafter
the rule of advance payment will be
strictly adhsred to.
Subscribers la arrears caa assist
very materially la making the systea
easily carried out, by calling at the

CENTRALIZATION OF AUTHORITY
Whllo now statu comiuhwIoiiH uro to
o created during tho legislative
'hosbIoii to Improve tha calihro of the
public service and to reduotn pro-o! ca
tion pledges thnt were luilorsod by
tha people, yet there In plonty of evl
ilenco that Governor Cox will not per
mit the Hillary grahhem to pluudor
itho stnto troatmry.
First; Tho cHtuhllshmoiit of a com.
'mission will not alwuyn mean an ad
ded cxpeiiHO, hut on tho contrary in
most cases it will bring' about roduc
'Uon, for nearly all of the propoHod
commissions are to bo croatod to con.
salldato iudopemleut agencies of tho
government working on rotated sun
Jocts, but hetwetm which there has
been but little, If any, co-ordination,
and consequently much duplication
and oven triplication of effort. Those'
commissions mean tho centralisation
of authority and rwiHinnllIIUy In
creating governmental quustlomi, and
tho weeding out of employed whore
ever thero Ih u duplication of effort.
Tho work of tho Htato board of admin.
Istratlon has demonstrated that both
tiOlclency and economy can bo ob
tained by such centralisation.
Second: Thero are to bo reorgan
isations effected In many alato depart
ments nnd tho service in tfaoBo will
be closely scrutinized to .find moan
for reducing tho operating cost. For
Instance, tho original pufeHo worka bill
provided for nn assistant uuporintona
Mt, but Governor Cox had that otllco
'abolished. The Kxecuttve aiao had tho
salaries of tho secretary to the wiper
latendent of canals and tho division
engineers reduced from $21)09 to 120(10
lh eavtag of $1500 annually aa salaries
of thrco employes, liut tho re-organization
of tho department moans a re
duction In the operating cost of $02,-
000. This was done through abolish
ing noodlcaa offices, ,
Third: Every state department
that regulates a branch of business is
to bo made a revenue producer and
self-supporting. This will relieve the
state of a burden of $100,000 annually
The cost of administering the propos
ed "blue sky" law will bo met by the
traffic regulated and this measuro will
entail no exponse to the taxpayers.
A review of the administration plana
makes it clear that tho Governor in
his off oris to progress has not lost
sight of tho tact that economy Is a

Prevailing Fabric TakesThe
Place Of Linens
Weeks and weeks before the season
actually arrives, begins tho discussion
of what to get for spring. Already
young mothers and debutantes are ab
sorbed in the question of their Easter
toilets, says tho Washington Post
Many of the smart shops have sent
out cards for tholr spring openings,
and tbo new summer fabrics provo

apparently taking tho placo of voiles

popular, and is umdo In many old
world patterns. Ono Is of a small, con.

dark purplo or soa green or gobolln

Indian crepes may easily havo been
copied from old English chintz.

two yeara has been so universally
worn, is now becoming a thing of tho

Thore have been several walking
costumes made of corlse mummy
doth. Ono popular model In particu
lar, which is so becoming to the de
butante, Is a short skirt slightly gath
ered In all around the waist with a
little panler on one side and quite plain
on tho other. The coat has a slight
cutaway effect. A small sealskin col
lar ends on tho shoulder. Tho front If
buttoned up closely at tho neck, and
also all the way down tho front. Long
kimono sleeves, with largo cuffs of
seal, comploto this costumo. It is cer
tainly a far cry from black and white
to those brilliant colorings.
Sulphur yellow is a very popular and
startling now shade. For ono who pro
fors tho loss somber coloring tho rai
sin shade is good.
There Is a tendency to tho long
waist lino this- year. Many walking
costumes have wide girdles, extending
even below the natural waist line, still,
howovor, retaining tho effect of the
omplre blghwalsted style. Tho waist
must not under any circumstances be
