The municipal imprvoments that Sot planned for this summer wilt akke Missoult one of the most at tIectlve and. beautiful cities of the Soathwest. That means a great deal, tdr Missoula is already attractive and beautiful. A happier way to state tine situation might be to say that the paving and' the new lights will tsake Missoula even better and more metropolitan than now. There are few cities that have the natural ad vantages that Missoula haes and .here are few that have reached Mtlssoula's status without paving. Now, however, that tavement is to begin, it is prac tically certaln that the idea will spread and that the pavement on Hliggins avenueo and Front street will be fot lowed on street after street. This hIas been thle experience of every city or town that has begun paving. The Idea spreads and the paved district grows steadily. It is, therefore, very im portant that the first pavement be made a good pa'vemnt and that the best of material be used. PROSPERITY. Over in the Coeur d'Alones men mota famtllar with btsiness conditions and prospects are predicting a won derful year. Missoula is Interested deeply in this section; the prosperity of the coeur d'Alenes Is our pros. Perity. Listen to what the Wallace Press-Times has to say: "Not since the panic of four years ago has the outlook been better for general prosperity in tile Coeur d'Alenes. The increased demand for Coeur d'Alene mining stocks has caused an advance in prices all along the line. Much development work is itt progress in all parts of the dis trict, while the old producing minnes epat4tue their regular output and at the 'pime time keep great reserve bodtle of ore in sight. "These favorable conditions hi mninm lag are reflected in all lines of busl 'la5e., and a fooling of healthy 9ytlmnsm 'jisevaits. Along with this ohearing outlook are these balmy days following a winter remarkably mild, reaibliting to make one glad that he Utea in the Coeur d'Alenes." DISQOUNTED. Ak uroup of eminent lawyers has thi$.r . call to the bar of tile city of Il#w York urging adhesion to the md*-b t4eapt Judiciary association. Daunp.t "to combat current and all S, pB lato I respect to the recall '('Jil sapd reversal of Judicial do Oiloni trwy popular vote." Tihe sunm •sas to enlist is voiced by men who hrve hbad 'bll office In lnational aiguptils, and WhO also have been con. *$a.iUtlls 9s advisers of the largest g-'porqttoros of the country. Whether it ll lantended to dupliate this new -.aoeltilon with local ohaptors in all the lanr' urban centers Is not made .lear. There are some reasons why, Sit It s to be a national, novement, It shoul4 originate in New York; and yet, admitting tbat, it also is hardly opon to question 4bIt it Ibn4Olaps the Sregion! tf the' ountr' whetre both 04and lawysrs are not Incllned P ,fW 'Vt polnt of view FIING Til CIVIL S "Y, . ; Too late in the campaigt was Presiden't T.'~ . ane as a civil-service re~itiner. When Mr,. .e* it that he favors classification of the-higher poliI ;ta arnd the protection of the tenure of office under the oi-lservice, act, the country was amazed. Generally, Mr. Taft had been given credit for honesty; his errors had been' attri. buted to mistaken judgment, but not to dishonesty. So the country, which had been watching the saturnalia of federal office-holders in the carnival of debauchery of. the public service, paused and held its breath. Either Mr. Taft was being deceived by those who sur round him as advisers or he was dishones" ~-Either he did not know what his appointive officers wdrJ doing or else he did know and was.attempting another masquerade. For awhile the country waited to see. If the president were honest in his expression, there would be a cessation of the orgy of indecency. The country learned. In spite of the declaration of the pres.ident against the participation by his officers in the political demonstration, there was no change in the pro gram. There was no postmaster called off unless he hap pened to have expressed a preference for Roosevelt. The country knew that the president was attempting a new masquerade. He had donned the garb of a civil-serv ice reformer for the purpose of fooling the public. But the public is not fooled. Illinois has shown that she was not deceived. Maine has given evidence that she is possessed of all her faculties. There are other states which will furnish the same evidence. Mr. Taft being the particular individual who has plunged the federal officiary deeper into politics-and very disrep utable politics, at that-than any other executive got it into, he would seem entitled to speak with authority upon the question of getting it out of politics. But his utterance carries .no weight because the people do not believe him. But the&e'are some ways by which Mr. Taft can convince the public that he is sincere: First, let him issue positive orders and have them en forced, against participation of all federal office holders in politics. Let this include federal employes of all classes. Let it be decreed that all federal office holders shall abstain from active participation in campaign work. Let it be directed that no office holders are to be delegates to any party con vention and that if any delegates or alternates come up to the Chicago convention as office holders, they shall thereby forfeit their positions automatically or else have no chance to participate, in the nomination of a president. That would give positive proof of the sincerity of Mr. Taft as a civil-service reformer. It would make it clear that he means what he says. It would, of course, deprive Mr. Taft of a good many southern delegates, but it would stamp him as an honest man-surely that Is worth more than a host of delegates. It would be an act of lofty patriotism and high-minded citizenship if Mr. Taft were to enforce such an order. But he will not do it. This business about getting the civil service out cf poll tics is about the cheapest play that has been made in this campaign, and there have been some mighty cheap plays made. Direct charges are made against a lot of Kentucky postmasters, that they have refused to issue credentials, as chairmen, to Roosevelt delegates elected b, conventions. In Texas, the newspapers have carried display advertise ments, calling upon federal employes to rally to the support of Taft... In Montana, civil-service employes have received Mr. McKinley's steam-roller letter. In Louisiana, federal employes have been assessed-so it is charged-ten per cent of their salaries for campaign purposes, and new appointees had tb pay in advance or get no jobs. The case of the North Carolina postmasters is familiar to all of us. There is a heap of pretense about these Taft assertions. They are too evidently hypocritical. A little evidence of sincerity of purpose would be appreciated. either as to interpretation of the con stitution or thl relative rights of property and humanity in a demloc racy. $omo of thile most astute and techiieally comlpetent lawyers of the country, by their professlonnl aid to anti-social forces in society given openly and secrelly during the past generation, have rendered themsilves impotent at this Juncture of notional history to speak with authority either to the legal profession or to the public. Their disinterestedness is questioned. BY WEIGHT. The governor of New York has signed a bill requiring that the net weight of all package goods be branded plainly on the outside of the container. More thin that, it pro hibits the sale of meat, ice and certain food products in any other way than by weight. It was found that gross frands were perpetrated upon the consumer by the use of packages tlht contained el'as than their capacity or etls thant the lt nscription called for. The New York bureau of weights and measures reported this condition and asked for the law that has Just be come effective. $ieven.olghts of the packages containing even the best of food products were declared to be short in weight. The idea that the consumerl Is entitled to all hI pays fur in the way of food may be taken as an outgrowth of the high cost of living. state after state has taken up a net-weight law or 'has adopted an ordinance calling for Inspection of scales and measures. The results have been astonishing. False scales and lying measures by the thousands have been condemned. Parlhaps, there is coming a better dit for the con. .umer, There are si poephant winners in traiSul for ! ( VI'1a.P1 "~Qitlon's season, according to official advices from the front.

VIEW. TO NEWSPAPER OF BALTIMORE. (The Baltimore World.) It, this was a prima donna. What disappointments life holdst What sur prises fate springs on people when they' are the least aware. Miss Antionetto Lue Brun stood in her dress Ilg room smiling bright--aye, even brillantly-lifer white teeth shinlng hn the glow of the electric lights. "No, sir," she said, with a twinkle In those eyes that carried the' cynic oft ils linguistic feet, "I never ftight with the stage manager; what is the use?"-this augmentatively. "Why should I prance about the stage glar lng and pressing my hand to the brow, when if I see anything wrong and want it changed I can say so and It Is done." What dream was this; was ever man more astonished; was ever woman more truthful and tasolnating In Its telling? The cynic had thought to find a prlma donna-ho had found a lovely woman-a most lnateelil~ig one, "Why your surprise, sir'" queried the singer. "I always thought that prim) donnas fought with everyone,; tlgt their artistic temperament would not allow them to' do thling in the usual ;'way, and" Miss Le Drun Interrupted with a laugh that had in It all of the sweet ness of her singing. "No, indeed:" Here Mr. Frlts lluttmann, the tenor, broke in with a laugh. "You are thinking of the operatic tnen. We,are the ones that are supposed to have no forte for business, you, see madame is tue head of tills company." "Why is It," said ithe cynic, tUrning to the smiling singer again, 'that women always seem to manage affal.s better than men--why so ,whny of the female opera stars manage their own companies?" "'Oh, I'll tell you that," sa4: Mr, tluttmuann. He was getting Interested now, and he's a very Interesting tenor, too. "You see it we' went 'b a man, ager and said, 'Here, let uS have this or that,' they would laugh at us and say. 'Here, what do you know About money; you sing, that is ail.' " "You see, broke Ina.
