Armed with this list, the shopper fares forth, EFFECTIVE CITIZENSHIP Not, many days ago, Detective William J. Burns, before a group of civic and social workers, was telling of the cap ture of the grafters in the Detroit city council. In the course of events, the president of the city council had been caught, red-handed, in taking a bribe of a thousand dollars and, later, he had made a complete confession of all his crooked activities as a member of the Detroit city govern ment. All of this became a matter of general public knowledge. But, notwithstanding all this, the man stood for re-election in his ward and won out by a good majority. Mr. Burns used this situation to illustrate the point that the quality of American citizenship often seems hopeless. He gave it as his belief that the main trouble with Ameri can politics is the indifference, or worse, of the average voter. With this view we are not in accord. We dissent from the opinion even of so great a man and so keen an observer as Mr. Burns. )cetroit is under the old-fashioned form of city government and, on the ticket, the name of the graft ing councilman was mixed up with the names of a lot of other candidates, too numerous to be scrutinized carefully by the voter and too obscure to be recognized by the aver age man who took the ballot into his booth for marking.. Furthermore, that ballot contained a too-convenient ar rangement by which the voter with a couple of strokes of his pencil could vote into office a whole column of party candidates, grafters and all. It is not improbable that the grafting councilman was dragged back into office upon the coat tails of better men, in whose company he had been placed by the long-ballot system. This opinion was evidently shared by the grand jury which investigated the D)etroit frauds and which placed in its report to the court the constructive suggestion that the remedy for existing evils in the city government lay in the adoption of the commission form of government for the city; that it would be simplied and, by its very simplic ity would guard against graft and leaks. It has been the experience of cities and of counties and of states which have tried the short ballot that it makes citizenship more effective. Missoula's experience, we believe, has borne out this statement. The simplified ballot has removed all possible source of confusion in the election. The commission gov ernment has fixed definitely the responsibility for every official act. It has brought the administration of the af fairs of the city into orderly, business-like form and has reduced the expense of maintaining the city to the extent that the salaries which are paid to the commissioners have proved a good investment. In concrete illustration, take this comparison between the budgets of Billings and Missoula for the coming year the Billings budget carries $78,380; that of Missoula is $35,100. We know of no stronger indorsement for the commission form of government and of the Missoula com missioners than this. The short ballot and the responsible government save money. Billings is under the old system of city government and Missoula's commission form is just getting well organized. til'l i wl hel ii. \' V n ai d i tnll . l, rt,!'!i1 l,; il- , .- I I'A u.1 a ;I s1 of ill l I, 1.1111, l.b11, 11 I I : r the, 1 Ilhllll, II),'' 1, l1 , :Ita l 1 l +l ;r0 011r Il ih hb r:;. il0wevtier, we do not llknow as thoere is ;ny piartlleular satisfactiiion Ini know ing that at friend dml.t fIrtlt the effects .f Itithe Ilanil poison(i that killed Socrates.

A great delat of this illegal excange of coin, with the servant as the tiddleman on small commission, represents the handsome dividend Which more than one hotel writes off every year. W.hile the hotel proprie tor is not wholly to blame, he is at the bottom of this deep seated economic sore. The only way to heat him is for tht- ,public to select the hotel which displays the "no tipping" sign and 'means it. If this couhl be done con sistently in every city it would not 'be long before the combination in re straint of grateful tipping for real per sonal services duly rec. ived would be broken up. A certain New York hotel has re cently -established a ten per cent dis count rule on the bills of its guests, the d, du~ction apparently designed to ('nver the guest's tippinti outnay. in likewise doingt hotels will yield their old attitude of "pay tlith, limit or heat it.' Tipping cuts a big hole in theil daily expense account. Ten p r clntt discount is a "conts.'ience fund" but it do.(s not go far enoaiagh. 'Tlhe timne has long sillce pa;ssed when ten per cent is ace pta;le ito the hotel or restaurant f.unkey. Nowadays a tian ill tlhe east would hardly dare offer:' a waiter aI dline aft I' dil'ar meai.

With a snarling "'bah" that ptaltpered pork ('hntl) attache swept ile moneyliiil on tlhe floor. The head wait 'r was called and in tilts part'iclar case the Intan was dischargetd. As a rule matters lon't get that far. In the first pltace, only a brave man tries to get by with thea customary ten per cent that was de. Iad lihberal Ia fewt years ago. If he does it once the lofty c'aonla!sce'nsiona or the iitying smnile of hitter insult with w'hih thel waiterl re ('vi'es th, pittance blisters the pa tron into resolvingt th;at it is even tbet tear to l)'e rol'bbed than to l)e roasted.
