THE SAFEST WAY.
"Burn this letter," wrote James G.
Blaine maay years' ago to a corre
spondent to whom he had confided
certain Information which he did not
wish to have made public upon mat
ters of legislation at Washington. The
correspondent did not burn the letter,
and it turned up some years later as
a contributing cause in Mr. Blaine's
defeat as a candidate for the presidency.
This interesting - historical episode
is recalled because of its present perti
nence to a certain distinguished poli
tician and tro irtTer-writing officials cf
the National Association of Manufac
turers. Blaine's advice was good, but
that of Quay to General Beaver when
a candidate for governor "Dear Bea

THE HIGH SCHOOL, AND CITI
ZKN8H1P. "High school teachers of social
science and history have the best op
portunity ever offered to improve the
citizenship cf the land." says Dr.
Thomas Jesse Jones, of the United
States bureau of education. Dr. Jones
believes that the 1,300,000 boys and
girls now in American high schools
form the largest group of persons any
where in the world who can be guided
into acquiring the "social point of
view" ty means of the subjects ot
tocial science and history taught in
the modern way.
"Good citizenshiD should be the di
rect aim of the lflgh school courses in
social science and history," he de
clares. "Good citizenship is the test
that must be applied to every topic in
these courses. Facts, conditions,
theories, activities which do. not con
tribute directly to the appreciation of
methods of human betterment have no
claim on the time of the high school
' Dr. Jones points out that under this
test civics must not be merely a study
of government machinery, but a study
cf ali manner of social efforts to im
prove mankind. "Every pupil sho'ili
know, of course, how the president cf
the United States is elected; but he
should also understand the duties of
the health officer in his community,
it is the things near at hand and
socially fundamental . that should be
taught first of all. Comparatively few
persons have any need of knowledge
of congressional procedure, but every
citizen should know what are the
chances cf employment for the aver
Proposed topics in this newer high
schoof civics are: Community health,
housing and homes, pure food, public
recreation, good roads, parcel post and
rcetal savings, community education,
poverty and the care of the poor,
crime and reform, family income,
savings backs and life insurance, hu
man and material resources of the
community, human rights versus prop
erty rights, impulsive action of mobs
and the selfish conservatism of tra
dition, public utilities, like street car
lines, telephones, and light and water
"The purpose is not to give the
pupil en exhaustive knowledge of any
cf these subeVts, but to give him a
clue to the significance of these thin-Ts
to himself and to the community, and
to make him wait to know more about
the conditions under which he lives.
It is to help him to think clvically, and,
it pcssible. to live civically."

But truth concerning federal legis
lation is a rare and precious com
modity. There are many considera
tions why the people do not learn the
truth. Newspapers and magazines
are controlled or swayed by interests
of one sort or another, political or
commercial. Some of the) really vital
facts are not regarded as news and
are never printed. Or the truth is
colored by the teller of it.
The National Voters' league aims to
put before its members all of the vital
facts concerning congress, without
coloring or interpreting them, but cull
ing them naked from the records. It
is not a lobby; it is forwarding no
propaganda. Its firm faith is that
the destiny of the republic can be
safely trusted to the people when they
know the facts.
The names of some of the great
leaders of progressive thought are
found on the league's executive com
mittee. Among them are Herbert S.
Bigelow, the follower of Tom L. John
son and a crusader for direct govern
ment in Ohio; Prof John R. Com
mons, the great economist ot the
University of Wisconsin; Ida M. Tax
bell of the American Magasine, who
exposed the Standard Oil company,
and who is one of the nation's most

The league will distribute vital in
formation to its members through
monthly bulletins and through an an
nual book bound for preservation.
This book will be the analysis of each
session of congress and will contain
the records cf members. The purpose
of this publicity is (1) to improve the
personnel of congress by defeating
unfaithful stewards of the public's
trust; (2) to reform the proceedure
of congress, directing effort against
the secret caucus, the secret commit
tee meeting and organization domina
tion of the members; and (3) to make
the environment of congress more
favorable to good legislation.
To Lynn Haines a young man who
did powerful work in purifying the

the first to point out the dangers in

Wholesale denunciation of the ad

failing. General approval of the plan,

Denbigh was as much smitten with
the princess as she was with him, and
the course of true love might have run
smooth enough had it not been that
Trince Piuciuno, an equerry to the
king, was himself in love with the
princess and did not propose to give
her up without a struggle. v
One evening Denbigh and one of his
American friends, Clarkson, were at
one of the fashionable clubs in Home
playing baccarat, rinclano came In

no knowledge of the prince or of his
pretensions to the baud of the Prin

ly surprised when Pincinno threw
down his cards and. nint!ng to Den
bigh, declared that he would play no
more with that lowborn Auierlcnn,
who mode money by cheating, and, ris
ing, left the room.

tony take to a side street or any arti

It was generally agreed among the
consulting party that ir Denbigh really
meant to fight this was the best posi
tion that could be suggested. Clark
son went to the club, where Be found
Captain Carluccl ready to receive any
communication he might have from
Denbigh. When Clarkson delivered
his message the captain looked sur
prised. "But we do not fight that way here
in Italy." he protested, "nor Is It dona
anywhere in Europe."
"And we do not fight your way in
America. It is your principal that de

Ire must couseut to the methods used
In the only part of America where
quarrels are settled by arms, and every
day such cases are becoming more
rare as civilization spreads over a
country that has been gradually pass

The captain said that he would sub
mit the proposition to his principal and
withdrew for that purpose. Clarkson,
lighted a cigarette and looked over
periodicals for some time, during
which he was thiuking what would be
the effect of a proposition 60 entirely
at variance with the European code

club came to lilra and said that the
prince had referred the messsge to
a committee for its decision as to
what reply be should send to Denbigh.
The committee had sent Clarkson'a tn-

according to accepted rules.
Clarksou took tL responsibility upon
himself of replying to this for bis prln

quarrel between him and the prince.
But if forced to fight be would only
do so in accordance with the custom
of his own country. Having delivered
himself of this reply, Clarkson lighted
another cigarette, took up a newspa
per, and the messenger went back to
the committee with the message.
' There Is a proper sense of courtesy
to visitors In all countries. The com
mittee recognized that It occupied a
delicate position. An American gentle
man had visited Rome, been introduced
to society by the representative of his

had sought to eliminate him from the
lady's circle, first, by an accusation
which was untrue aud, second, by .forc

which had no standing in America.
While the committee recognized that a
pretext was necessary in a case where
a lady was involved, the whole matter
appeared tvit as an inhospitable- act
to a visitor to Italy.
Its decision was that If Prince Pin-,
cinno insisted on the meeting be must
accept Denbigh's terms. But It rec
