making progress at a great rate.
Three more cities Ottawa, Decatur,

Good for Illinois. We are in for
a most promising and useful experi
ment, and it is wise to give the new
plan a fair and sufficient trial under
the best auspices.
This means, among other things,
a strengthening and improvement of
the commission act. It has several
serious flaws. Th3 recall feature

State Civil Service.
The comprehemsive state civil service
bill prepared by the Illinois Civil Serv-
ice Reform association and endorsed
J u,r,rm.c iunun: ,
of seven was introduced in both houses
of the general assembly at Springfield j
Tuesday. It was introduced in the j
house by Representative Clayton C.
Pervier of Sheffield, chairman of the
republican house caucus and president
of the Legislative Farmers' club. Mr.
Pervier, a leader among the older pro
gressives, comes from Bureau county,
where one of the meetings in the state
wide good government campaign was
held last autumn.
The bill was introduced In the upper
house by Senator John Dalley of tbei
Peoria county district. In submitting
the measure Senator Dailey told of the
conference of citizens from all parts
of the state who met in his home city
of Peoria last June. He said that one
of the essentials to the restoration or
representative government recom
mended by this conference was the
enactment of a comprehensive state
civil service law. "The people of Illi
nois advised us," said Senator Dailey,
"by a vote of 411,676 to 121.1C2, on
Nov. 8 last, to give them comprehen
sive state civil service legislation. I,
for one, believe that we should be
guided by this expression ofthe pop
Senator Dailey Faid that the bill he
introduced was drawn after much la
bor by the Illinois Civil Service Re
form association, whose president,
Charles L. Capen of Bloomington, pre
sided at the Peoria conference. He
said the committee of seven appoint
ed by that conference had stamped it
with approval as an up-to-date bill well
calculated to meet the popular demand.
The bill amends the existing state
civil service law, covering only the
charitable institutions so es to bring
all of the rest of the state departments
and institutions under the merit and
efficiency system. It contains con
structive features. It provides for def
initely standardizing the state employ
ment. If provides for efficiency inves
tigations and efficiency records. It
provides that the next civil service
commissioners shall be employment
experts themselves selected under
the merit system.
Martyrs to the Common Cause.
After a prolonged examination, the
coroner's jury decided not to under
take to fix the responsibility of the
fire in the Chicago stock yards in
which so many lives were lost in
cluding the chief of the department
and an assistant chiaf. Numerous
recommendations were, however,
made for better safety appliances and
methods. This fire, like the Iri-
j in13 lueaiie me, was rnormousi 1
expensive in life toll, an awful pen
alty for common neglect. The Iri
quois fire showed what looked like
gross carelessness in inattention to
the conditions of the exits or the
adequate protection of the auditor
ium from fire on the stage, all of
which was due to the sloth that
comes from continued luck.
The people who died in the Iro
quois theatre were martyrs sacrificed
to the safety of those coming after.
The result was felt around the
world. Practically every city and
village acted In the matter of pro
viding safety guards for people gath-
ered in public assembly rooms. In
the aggregate vast sums of money
were spent by the owners of theatre
buildings. In the instance of the
stock yards fire there will be precau
tions calculated to make a recurrence
in any similar establishment prac
tically Impossible and also there will
be provided adequate water protec-1
tion for a wide neighborhood.
These things seem to be some
thing like wars in the olden time;,
when the only way to relieve Tmpcs
sible conditions was to explode gun
lewder. Nowadays war is no long?r
necessary, thanks to arbitration, but
in some directions it seems that the
only way to correct rertain dangerous
situations growing out of a dulled
sense of responsibility is through the
sacrifice of human life in what we

In Judson C. Clements the Interstate commerce commission nas elected
one of its most radical members chairman. He succeeds M. A. Knapp, now
presiding Justice of the new court of commerce, but it is said PresiQent Taf t
i was anxious for the selection of Commissioner Edgar E. Clark of Iowa, a
Republican. The commission, however followed Its rule of choosing the rank
I lng member. This elevates another Democrat to a high office. Mr. Clements
, was a strong supporter of the Interstate board's fight for jurisdiction over the
railroads some ten years ago. It is said that none of his written opinions has
ever been overturned by the supreme court. Judge Clements served In the
Confederate army and then In the Georgia legislature and congress. He was
made an interstate commissioner in by President Harrison. He is a
strong advocate of the physical valuation of railroads.

Many weeks ensued before any men

In the meantime Joseph Bradbury each

to window of their little home trying
each catch and lock after she had
fastened It and then waiting patiently

As time went on Mr. Bradbury spent
much time of evenings at his own
especial desk in the corner sketching
plans and making abstruse calcula
tions on scraps of paper.
One Thursday night Mr. Bradbury
hurried home from the office at 5
o'clock. He came out on tbe trolley,
and with him he carried a shabby
leather suit case which nng heavily
from one band.
"What have you got, dear?" Mrs.
Bradbury kissed her husband and look
ed curiously at the suit case.
"Anybody around?" asked Bradbury
"Not a soul. Bridget's afternoon and
evening, of course."
Bradbury knelt down before the case
and opened it. Within was n tangle
of wires and rods and bolts. "I've
got It!" he whispered.
"What Is it?" She leaned over the
j suit case, her pretty face puckered
' with curiosity and Impatience.

i "Then yon did Invent it?" she squeal
"Sure I did. Now. I've made arrange

Three hours afterward, as the clock
was striking 10, Mr. Bradbnry closed

i "It's all right now." he cried enthu-

The lights flashed warningly In nil

not shock the electrician, for he wore
rubber gloves, nor did the bell ring in
the constable's office, for they cut off
that connection, too, but Intbe matter

"Better be safe than artistic," snap

Halfway up the stairs Mrs. Brad

It was then that Bridget I.anlgan ar
rived home, weary after a long after
noon of unalloyed pleasure. Her at
tack on the kitchen door was followed
by an ear splitting shriek that brought
the neighborhood out of their beds.
Then It was that the Bradbury bur
glar alarm demonstrated its efficiency.
The colored lights flashed Intermit
tently all over the house; the eighteen
bells rang incessantly; the constable
and his aid rattled up on motor cy
cles, while Miss Lanigan proceeded to
rend the air with her cries of pain.
When the tumult was over, when the
current bad been shut off from the
feed wire and Bridget had been re
leased froi her unhappy position more
frightened than hurt, for the current
had not been a very heavy one after
all; when the constable had been lib

neighbors had enjoyed their laugh to
the utmost, Mr. Bradbury slammed the
front door viciously upon the outsido
