Jitney Routes.
Corporation Counsel Syme in his >
report to the District Commissioners |
on his observations on jitney bus
services in other cities expresses the j
belief that these supplementary j
transports can be maintained prolit
ably only when the operators are
permitted to choose their own routes
and to be their own judges of the
services they shall render. He says:
The moment an attempt is made !
to hold the jitney to a prescribed
route and compel it to perform a ;
proscribed service tor a considerable
number of hours it ceases to be a
profit-making operation. The dead
mileage will quickly consume the
It is not clear just how a satis
factory service can be rendered to
the public by dciachvi vehicles op
crating on unstable routes at the !
judgment of the drivers. Certainly j
ihe people who require to be car
ried a-* quickl v as possible from
point to point regularly must know
where they can lake these vehicles i
and where thev are going to lie
transported. A "cruising" jilney be- 1
comes merely a cheap competitor ot
the taxicab. with the difference thai
the patron (aiiiiot direct his route i
whereas the user 01 ti,e taxicab can
command the shortest possible j
Transport to his destination. Doubt- j
less in the cities where this system
has been developed the jitneys vvijrk
along certain routes during certain
hours and shift to other routes a;
other hours. But haphazard bus
running through the streets is hard
ly calculated to appeal to the travel
ing publii.

A Touch of Militancy.
| Philadelphia suffragists who waited
I at the White House during three
I days to see the President in order
to urge him in person to speak to a
delegation on the occasion of his visit
to their city next Monday gave a
demonstration of mild American
militancy that is not calculated to
aid the cause of political equality for
women. The President's position on
the silbject of suffrage has been
clearly made known on more than
one occasion. It is plain that he
does not intend by his voice to aid
this cause. Regardless of the merits
of the question, he has put himself
so definitely on record in respect to
own part in the present move
nit that it is idle to press bin
rther. In this particular case
finite answer was given to th
? nladelphia delegation to the effect
?tat the President would be unabh
to accedc to their request. To insist
upon smug liim in person savored j
J of a sirgc such as those that char-j
! acteri/cd the English agitation of a !
5 short time ago. before the great war
| put an end to suffrage militancy in
S that country. Woman suffrage is a
progressing cause here, and its ulti- j
mate triumph cannot be questioned, j
j whether it conies in the near future
j or at a more distant day. The prcs- j
! etit progression toward success will j
? not be hastened by tactics such as
! those manifested yesterday at the ;

A Money Tunnel.
While it is suggested that the pro
jected iuating and lighting tunnel
from the central plant at 14t 11 and i
Water streets may be utilized to j
carry currency from the engraving
'bureau to the Treasury, for purposes
of greater safety, it is to be borne in
mind that the government has never
suffered a loss in the handling of its j
securities in transit from the money (
factory to the strong boxes. An ex
cellent system has been evolved;
whereby misplacement or theft is:
virtually impossible. Washington is
familiar with the sight of'thc "money
wagon" passing back and forth be
tween the engraving bureau and the
-Treasury, and perhaps imaginative
persons have at times speculated on
the possibility of a raid upon it by
a gang of desperadoes, but it has al
ways been realized that the chances j
of success in a venture of this sort i
would be so slight as to discourage
any such effort. The products of the j
engraving bureau are checked to the
last penny daily, and in the transit
to the Treasury there is never any
slackness of precaution. The tunnel 1
method might be speedier, and
j doubtless it is a good plan to take
| advantage of the already projected
subway to bring the Treasury and
| its money mill into closer conncc
j tion.
Rumors that Huerta is interesting
himself in a project to finance a new ;
demonstration fail to credit the for- j
mer chief with the ability to let well j
enough alone. j

Estimates of the enormous cost of
war have not included calculations of
the indemnities that may be required
j for the destruction of American
j ships.
Japan may feel compelled to send
regrets to the allies with the explana
tion that she has a war on hand in
her own immediate neighborhood.
The deliberation with which Italy
approaches war cannot reasonably be
ascribed to fear of another ringing
denunciation by the kaiser.
William H. Taft refuses to take his
presidential boom with a seriousness j
that might impair his prestige as a

The Kind of Corsets
Your Daughter Should Wear.
Mothers cannot be too careful in the matter of
choosing Corsets for their daughters in the early stage
of development. In fact, until they are fully matured.
If the health of the girl is to be properly iafe
guarded we suggest the proper model each time
a new corset is bought. To some this may seem un
necessary. and in some instances it is useless, but the
figure may change quite a good deal in a short time,
and thus the same model that has been worn may not
be again, suitable.

and their motheri as to the most suitable styles an!
