Till! LAW forbidding Chinamen to cuter
this country has given rise to a new,
thriving and apparently prosierous in
dustry the smuggling of Chinamen
across the Canadian and Mexican fron
tiers. Our borders on the north and on
the south arc so long that it is practically
impossible to watch them effectively, and
Chinamen, although represented as pov
erty stricken, can afford to pay lilierally
for licing piloted across them in safety.
Now and then n butch of "contraband"
Mongolians arc caught, but, as the only
IK-iiully is their return across the line,
they soon find a place where they can
slip in. Once in a crowd of their coun

fication is hoH'lcss.
Wiikn it apK'iirs that each congress
man undertakes tocontrol appointments
to about 3ii0 ofliecs, and to look niter
about 1700 applicants for these posi-

tent the federal patronage has conic to
ntcr fen1 with the duties which he has
licen elected to perforin. On thisipics
lion the report of the special committee
I' the national civil service league is ol
great interest. What can lie exacted of
ongress in the way of legislation when
inc. third of the time of its members is
taken up in the distracting and demoral
izing work of distributing patronage?
It will Ik seen that this committee rcc-
mmeiids the Lodge bill, which is de

and that they can control 2:1,000 votes

Tint hill prepared by the American
Forestry Association is to come before a
sub-eomniittec of the public lands com

that the necessity of this or a similar
measure should be impressed upon con

and about the head waters of streams,
are most essential for the regulation of

is the appointment of a commission with
the power to direct the work. The cxic

in no other way is this most important
matter likely to receive due attention.
