FIND A WAY
As a result of the investigations of Fred P. Calkins, city milk, dairy and
meat inspector, the city commission will consider the matter of requiring all
meats sold here to be inspected. Now only meats coming through the big
packing houses are inspected. If an unscrupulous rancher has a cow with
lumpy jaw he cannot sell to Carstens he may take it to a private slaughter
house and kill it himself and bring the meat in and sell it to a Taeoman.
It is impossible to tell meat that is diseased after it is killed. So Tacoma
is at the merry of the owners of diseased cattle. Uncle Sam looks after
everything that goes through the big packing houses, but he does not bother
with the little ones. If it is necessary to inspect the big ones, it would seem
to be just as much so for the little ones.
Herein again is shown the difficulty and the expense of regulating in
dustry where human selfishness is against the public good.
If the city goes into the meat inspection business in earnest it will take
at least two more inspectors for the people to pay. This is the reason advo
cates of municipal slaughter houses are getting more and more of a hearing as
the jean go by. European cities have largely learned the futility of trying
to catch the fellow who refuses to be clean, honest or decent in the slaughter
house business, and municipal abattoirs have become the thing there. Taco
ma is hardly in shape to go into this at present, however, and the amount of
meat slaughtered in the uninspected places would hardly warrant it. So the
city is up against a difficult problem.
And it is up to the commission to find a way out.
GIVING THAT COUNTS
Wo ask leave to something from the New York World:
"The wadding was simple, in strict keeping with the life and habits of the
woman whose goodness and unostentatious benefactions have won high
esteem. Beautiful as were the decorations, they were comparatively inex
pensive. Dainty as was the luncheon, a shopgirl could afford to buy the dupli
cate of a portion, and pleasing as were the arrangements one of moderate
means could match them in miniature without unduly straining the purse
"But more than all this, the bride herself added a touch suggestive of
true Americanism, Shortly after breakfast, when the millionaire guests were
preparing for the ceremony, she summoned her servants. As they entered
her study, she .-hook each warmly by the hand and bade them be present at
the wedding. And she later saw to it that the ceremony did not begin until
every person in her employ was placed at a point of vantage."
You have guessed, of course, that this bride was Helen Gould. The
money amassed by Jay Gould, her father, was tainted. But this daughter
has shown how by simple humanity tainted money can be made sweet again.
It isn't because Helen Gould has given freely of Jay Gould's soiled fortune
to works of charity, education and benevolence that she has earned the re
spect and affection of milions. Rockefeller has given freely, Carnegie fairly
throws his bounty around; even Russell Sage put his wad into a philan
thropic pickle—and nobody venerates them.
Helen Gould gives more than money. She gives herself. There is no
other way to win the love of a people!
A STUDY IN SUBJECTION
The tragedy of servitude is iv many occupations. It is in business, when
small men cower before the masters of credit, well knowing that, unless they
conform, they can be wiped out. It is in the law, when lawyers fear to criti
cize unjust rulings by judges, lest the power of the bench be used in retali
ation. It Is in the press, when publishers let special interests muzzle their
championship of popular rights. It is in industry, when labor is ruled ac
cording to the whim of the boss because without an effective voice in the
But what are we to think of this case reaching into the ministry of the
gospel! On Jan. 12, from his pulpit in St. Paul's Reformed Episcopal
church in Philadelphia, Rev. Forrest E. Dager denounced by name Morgan's
deputy, Banker Stotesbury, for permitting women and girls to smoke at his
wife's recent $50,000 dinner dance. A reporter for the Philadelphia North
'American heard the denunciation, asked the minister afterward if he wanted
it printed and was told: "Sure, I do; I stand by my guns."
Then on Jan. 19, from the same pulpit, the minister read a letter of ab
ject apology to Mr. Stotesbury, intimating in it that he had been required to
do this by his bishop. His apology was not for the sentiment expressed but
for having mentioned the Stotesburys by name!
Thou shalt not worship the golden calf.
LET THEM PLAN
The express companies of the U. S. and Canada are perfecting plans to
compete with Uncle Sam for your parcel post business. They have decided,
for one thing, that they will politely call at your house or business place for
your package, whereas Uncle Sam requires you to cam- it to his postoffice for
shipment. «- ,
Looks like pretty cute competition. In this, as in most other instances,
the bulk of the business will probably follow the convenience and cheapness,
the average American being perhaps not over two per cent sentimentally
patriotic when it comes to ordinary combinations of convenience and cheap
But Uncle Sam need not worry. His parcel post would be worth all it
costs, by reducing express charges and by elevating express managers from
public bullies to public sen ants, even if it didn't actually carry a parcel.

TENDERLOIN IS LINED UP TO BEAT
WOMEN IN EFFORTS TO RECALL JUDGE
SAN FRANCISCO. Jmn. 29.—
The recall campaign now being
waged by the women of San

release on small ball of men
charged with crime* against girls,
and the same system which has
made it possible for the tender

In three days the women have
circulated petitions asking that a
recall election be held and have
secured more than ITTIOOO signa
tures of voters, although only
about 7,000 were necessary to
secure an election.
In the meantime those who are
opposing the fight to oust Weller
have not been idle. Threats have
been made against women prom
inently identified with the recall
movement. One man worked him

recallers by declaring that he
wanted to help oust Weller. Later
