Protect the Children ,
IMMEDIATE registration of all births, enforced through adequate laws strictly
enforced, is urged by the new children's bureau in the department of commerce
and labor, which is directed hy Miss Julia C. Lathrop, long a national figure
in work for bettering the living and working conditions of childhood. In her re
port, Miss Lathrop points out that in not a 'single one of the 48 states are alt
births recorded, and that only eight states receive a report of even nine out of ten
hirths. Some states rate as low as 25 or 50 percent of births officially registered
within reasonable time.
Three hundred thousand babies die every year in the United States, nearly
1000 a day, and at least half these babies could be carried through the years of
infancy in safety if well known scientific and practical methods were applied. The
first requisite, declares Miss Lathrop, is immediate report of all births' to proper
health authorities, so that in every case where competent medical aid is not already
attending, the public authorities and organized charities may be able to render the
necessary assistance. In England, authorities report that no other expedient has
been so effective in reducing infant mortality as the strict enforcement of the law
requiring immediate registration of all births.
Miss Lathrop points out further that hundreds of thousands of children grow
up in America without having any correct register of their birth date and
parentage. This makes it particularly hard to enforce child labor laws and com
pulsory education laws. Absence of authentic records also makes it difficult in
many cases to enforce the laws for the protection of minors, especially young girls,
who, under the barbarous "age of consent" laws still prevailing in most states,
are exposed to fearful wrongs at an age when they should be under strict guardian
ship of home or state, or of both. Further, an official record of birth is often re
quried in legal proceedings involving estates and life insurance, and many an heir
to a poor pittance has been deprived of his own by the absence of such records.
The national children's bureau proposes a model law for birth registration. It
should be adopted and enforced by every state and local community.
Reforming Court Procedure
HIGHER courts of Oklahoma have not seldom blazed the way for reform of
court procedure. The Oklahoma supreme and appellate courts have en
riched the American books of court precedent and procedure by numerous
wise and farsighted decisions, but none" has ever exceeded in incisive completeness
this from a. late decision of the criminal appellate court of that state:
'Judges and lawyers-have been educated In and are accustomed to an anti
quated system of procedure, and have been taught to look vfith reverence upon
old legal theories, and are thereby unduly biased against any change in legal
procedure. The result is that, even -when the legislatures attempt to reform
legal procedure, many courts and lawyers are disposed to construe such legisla
tion in the light of their preconceived Ideas.
"While this court respects the wisdom of "the past, and can see much in It
to admire and to follow, yet we also believe that the world should be ruled by
the living, and not by the dead; that the law should keep even step with the
march of civilization and the necessities of society In the relation of its mem
bers to each other.
"This court does not purpose to grope Its way through the accumulated
dust, cobwebs, shadows, and darkness of the evening of the common-law rules
of procedure, but it will be guided by the increasing light and Inspiration of
the rising sun of reason, justice, common sense, and progress."
The same court, by the way, recently expressly repudiated the old theory
that circumstantial evidence must be regarded as a' "chain of many links," which
would be destroyed by the failure of a single link. The Oklahoma court keenly
outlined a new, and far more plausible conception of circumstantial evidence, de
claring that it should be regarded as a "cable of many strands," which might fail
as to certain particular strands and yet be fully adeqaate to sustain weight.
A very large proportion of the "rise in the cost of living" is accounted for by
the abandonment of the old market basket shopping system for the new and.
costly telephone and delivery system. I

have found statutes denning the duties and responsibilities of express companies,
fixing maximum rates for the rental of oxen and draft animals, for the rental of
sailboats and rowboats, for the rental of wagons, and for the rental of "asses for

decision in a recent common carrier case.
The supreme court of Tennessee has refused to reverse a criminal case on an
"error which does not touch the merits of the case." Such wisdom is still rare
enough to justify special mention.

Author of "At Good Old Slvrash.?
ORIGINALLY hypocrisy was - the
science of preaching one thinjj
loudly and doing another m an
eminently stealthy manner.
Thre were a great many hypocrites in
the world 1900 vears ago, and they werj
all flourishing until one day they got
put together and described by a rys
terious itinerant preacher with such con
suming eloquence that they have been
unpopular ever since.
Hypocrisy in late years has been bor
rowed as a weapon bv the opponents of
reform and its definition has been
changed. Xowadays a hypocrite is a
man who demand sthat something shall
be changed for the better.
It is very easy to prove that such a
man is a hypocrite. If he demands that
the rascals shall be thrown out he is a
"holier than thou" sort of a chap. And
yet it .can be easily proven that three
years ago he took a drink. This makes
him a hypocrite and very naturally
proves that people should have nothing
to do with his reforms.
The word "hypocrite" is now the chief
defence of the man who desn't want
moral conditions improved. He will ad
mit that they could be improved, but
he insists that the movement shall be
led by a perfect man. If he isn't perfect
he is a hypocrite for denouncing vice.
Thus vice reigns supreme, slightly rum
pled, but wholly vindicated, and the men
who cry out against vice have thi bony
finger of public scorn bore dthrough them
for their shocking hypocrisy.
According to the new dispensation,
every man who tries to live correctly
is a hypocrite because Sometimes he fails.
Virtue is hypocrisy because it isn't as
pood as it tries to be. The man who yells
lor the entorcement of the laws is a de
sP'cable creaturfe because most likely
he is breaking some laws himself.
Therefore, we have only one virtue
left vice. Vice is honest, frank and
unashamed and should be honored for it.
And the lawbreaker who calmly orj
claims the fact and then buys the jury
in a broad-minded and public manner,
Daving spot cash and not cheating any
body is our only true nobleman.
Hypocrisy is the curse of the nation,
and will be until we learn not to Le
afraid of it. Copyrighted by George
Dy Walt Mnon.

Big Hotel At Famous Selden S
Hot and Medicated Waters
to Be Turned to Commer
cial Use by Company.
At Old Fort Selden on the Rio
Grande, 17 miles rorth of Las Cruces,
N. 31. and 60 miles north of El Paso,
hot mineral springs Durst forth from
the foot of the volcanic b'utte afford
ing a bountiful supply of the healing
waters at a temperature of from 185
to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Nearby Is a
cold water well. This water has an
analysis almost identical with that of
the famous Pluto waters of French Lick
Army Men Kneiv the Springs.
Fort Selden was established as a
military post in 1S6C and occupied as
such for 21 years. The officers of the
nosfr constructed a hath hntiRA nt the
springs, and among numerous old time 1
ciuzens wno were guests or tne onicers
were Maj. W. J. Fewel. and Edward
Piper, a civil engineer, both prominent
citizens of El Paso. Indeed, so enthu
siastic was CoL. Bliss, at" one time in
cemmand of Fort Selden, that he earn
estly urged the government not to
part with the title to thea springs and
the land around them, 'but to retain
them, the same as had been done in
the case of the Hot Springs of Arkansas
and in other localities. But the lands
and springs finally passed into the
hands of private owners.
The location is on the Santa Fe rail
road. The Camino Ileal, the state high
way, now being built by New Mexico
from Colorado through the state to
Texas, passes directly by these springs.
At the recent election in New Mexico,
an issue of 500,000 in state bonds was
authorized partly for the purpose of
cbmpleting this great highway. From
El Paso, when the road is completed,
the springs can be reached in two or
three hours by automobile. The main
"Borderland route" for transcontinen
tal automobile tourists passes near
A Bit of HUtory.
The springs lie at 4000 feet above sea
leveL Across the Rio Grande from
Fort Selden, the Cerro Roblero rises
3000 feet higher, or 7000 feet above sea
level. From the top of its highest peak
on Dec 2. 1S82, a party of United States
astronomical engineers observed the
transit of Venus, which proved to be
the only successful observation made
in the United States; the stone house
they built and the iron columnT they
erected are still standing on the -top
of the' mountain.
From the summit of this mountain
the vista is beautiful. The country here
abouts is full of historic interests, and
the sweep of the eye includes a circle
of 150 miles radius except where ranges
and peaks interpose.
All around are relics of an interest
ing history. Plentiful remains of ab-,
original pottery are found on .the
mountains and at the springs. Close
by is tife old trail traversed by the
early Spanish explorers when they in
vaded New Mexico. Over this same road
passed the famous expedition of Pnl.
j Doniphan and his soldiers during the
1 Mexican war, when they marched from
ujoouuii turn uiu Lejkicu. xmmeaiateiy
below the springs is the old ford
across the riTer. where Victorlo and his
band of Apaches crossed in 1879 when
! they escaped from San Carlos reserva
tion, Arizona, and went to eastern New
Mexico, to enter uponvtheir last great
raid in these parts.
