ML 4 - KECESSAKY KEFOKM. -Mnyor Wells's policy with regard to the remission of police court lines Is to be commended not only for the fact that It means a certain increase of the city's revenue, but that it also tends to a more effective administration of justice. Tender the system of the wholesale re mission of tines which formerly pre vailed, a police court sentence was but too often a mere mockery. Political or other 'influences were successfully em ployed to secure the nonenforcenient of the penalty prescribed. Offenders with "liulls" felt themselres above the law. The work of the police was nullllled, the police court g becoming nothing more than oiten doors through which law breaker passed to liberty. Toe i Mayor is performing his plain duty in putting an end to the indlscrim lunta remission of police court fines. Tho sentences imposed by a police court Judge should stand. It should be dis tinctly understood that flues must be paid and workhouse terms served out. The result of stub, an understanding i cannot but be for the better maintenance of Jaw ami order in St Louis. FOB THE NEW 8T. LOUIS. Exactly the same spirit which stimu lates St. Louis to a determination to make the World's Fair of 1003 the big gest, best and most beautiful interna tional exposition known to history should also prevail for the municipal improvement of St Louis to the stand ard set by the other great cities of the world. The World's Fair City of 1908 must be a handsome, attractive, clean and sani tary city, possessing all that goes to make beauty, convenience and comfort; so modern and no satisfactory as a mu nicipality that it shall be accepted by the world as a model TwentlctlfCentury city. It already possesses natural advan tages surpassing those of cities which have already taken their places In the first rank of modern municipalities. It must now secure the advantages or physical Improvement In all points where improvement Is possible. The Charter amendments prepared by the Public Welfare Commission will, If adopted by a Tote of the people of St LOUls, Insure to the fullest extent the modernizing of the city to the World's Fair standard. It was for this purpose they were framed. The thoughtrul men who drew up these amendments were animated by a civic loyalty which In spired them to tbeir-best effort The re sult of their endeavor will soon be ap proved by the City Council and submit ted to the peoples for adoption. Civic pride should lead every citizen of StXonls to vote for the Charter amend ments. Without their adoption, the mu nicipal Improvement of St Louis in preparation for the World's Fair Is Im possible. If adopted. It means that St Louis will be made a beautiful city, not only for the World's Fair period, but for alljtime. The vote In favor of the Charter-amendments should be unanimous. , FILTRATION AGAIN. Water Commissioner Flad strikes the right-note lu Lis annual report to the Board of Public Improvements when he emphasizes the necessity of a filtration plant for St Louis. In devoting the larger part of Ms report to this subject he shows a correct appreciation of Its Importance. Mr. Flad gives estimate on the cost of such a plant that seem to remove all danger of a deficiency of revenue. He place, the cost at 82,481,000, which woaiftirproTlde for the filtering of 120, OdOiOSO anaBons every twentv-fonr hrmra Tisrejrin be 11,440,000 available for the "3 ' iaarBs at tte end of the preteat fiscal year, while the next year will probably add $S70.000 to the surplus. It Is hardly probable that the plant could lc com pleted before that time, fo that the deilclt would be only about $110,000, which would be nilsiJ inside uf the fol low ill); two month. If St. I.ouis can succeed In clarifying tin; water before the beginning of the World's 'Talr, a womli-rftil work of great magnitude will Ime Wen accom plished. It N :iniiiuiieod that the WnterwoiKs Committee of the Hoard of Public Improvements will prepare an ordinance In a few days pro tiling for the erection of a plant. It Is hoped thnt no delay will be per mitted In preventing the matter to the Municipal .Usvmhly. Efforts made in the past to secure needed legiHlatlon for the building of the plant have proed fruitless, 'lhere Is no reason to believe that renewed efforts will meet with the Hjme Jiimeiited treatment. 'I lie tniiltli of St. I.ouis Is concerned lit the election of a nitration plant. LIMIT THE EMPIKE. Mr. Lionlterger's letter to The Repub lic is In one respect not quite fair to the Democrats who have expressed regret over the recent decisions of the United States Supreme Court. An import.iut decision, lunllug the tle per policies of the nation, has seldom been treated more temperately. In fact, the most severe criticism Is that deliberately recorded by one member of the Court, who 'dissents. Hut the positive part of Mr. Llonber ger's letter Is equally mistaken. He not oniy coincides with the Court's Interpre tation of the Constitution as It stands, but opposes any amendment of that In strument limiting the poweis of our cen tral government In dealing with terri tories and colonies. Ills reason is pecu liar. A constitutional limitation would be unwise-, he sajs, because It would "forbid future aggrandizement make war Impossible and Impair the glory and usefulness of this nation." This logic Is not easy to follow. A constitutional guarantee of definite rights in all American territory could not very well check aggrandizement or pre vent war. If It could, we should adopt the amendment as soon as possible. For a democracy this nation has more than enough war aud aggrandizement to sat isfy honorable needs for some centuries. The essential glory and usefulness of the United States have rested upon the fact that every man living under our flag was free In action, equal before the law. Conquest and domination have not been our claims to distinction amoug nations. It Is the surrender of this title to glory aud usefulness which depresses the hopes of humanitarians. Adopt the prin ciple that men 'should not possess self government, but should be possessed and managed by a despotism "according to their needs," and whnt Is to prevent the subjugation of one part of the States by another and stronger part? The Con stitution Is supposed now to prevent that catastrophe, but the Constitution would not stand long after a national acceptance of the principle that the stronger element Is justified in assuming absolute control over the weaker. Granting that the Supreme Court, as a matter of pure law, expounded the Con stitution correctly. It must be remem bered that the line of precedents estab lished In tho territories did not cover a situation like that presented In the Phil ippines and Porto Rico. Our territories have been organized and governed as outlying districts, inhabited by our own people and In little or no danger of op pression. Except the quarrel over the extension of slavery Into new territory and the Mormon question, there has been a complete absence of trouble. Though one of the greatest problems In Importance ever handled by a country, the settlement was so natural and spon taneous that few Americans ever thought about the territories at all on the political side. They merely watched and encouraged commercial growth. The people of the territories had about all the local autonomy they wnnted and were glad to have the expenses of gov ernment paid from Washington while they were getting ready for statehood. None of their rights were In danger, for every man of them had brothers and cousins in the States who would have known tho reason why If oppression had been attempted. Consequently, though the principle of governing the territories may have been abstractly contrary to the spirit of de mocracy, the act of government Itself was temporary and was, as a matter or course, in harmony with the system which prevailed in the States. So re markably was this true that It was cus tomary to take the entire code of laws of a neighboring State for the local ad ministration of a territory. But what will protect the colonics? In the case of Porto Rico It has already been demonstrated that a few overnow- erful commercial interests can impose restrictions on trade with the United States and at the same time absolutely, In effect, prohibit trade with the outside world. That spells ruin and distress for the Inhabitants of any country. Reli gious Intolerance might enforce vexa tions and exactions which would drive many races, devout though mistaken, to despair. The "Bill of Rights," the real democracy or the Constitution, might operate to prevent the worst of such ex actions and vexations, but could not stop the evil effects. If Mr. Llonberger would put the case that way, most Democrats desiring; to be particularly fair would admit that the gross mistake was not In the Supreme Court's decision, but In the policy of the administration. But he defends the whole business conquest aggrandize ment and government of colonies with out responsibility to the governed. He advances as a defense the superior con fidence and intelligence of the American people. If the Chinese were warlike and conquered the United States, that de fense would be equally theirs. It Is a casuistry which has been assumed to be wholly unamerlcan. If It were good logic, the Americans had no right to complain in the days of George the Third, because the notions of that" er ratic old gentleman were extremely liberal when compared with those of Mr. Llonberger. The Republic Is not convinced. The Supreme Court may have stated the law as It has existed. We admit without cavil that the law stands, and, nnless the Constitution Is amended, will stand as laid down by the Supreme Court But Democrats jealous of divine right la rulers, of privilege and prerogative, will demand that every Inch of territory held under American sovereignty shall have guarantees against the oppiessivc whims of Irresponsible pow er. DODGING TIIE LAW. Dodging tin.. Miles and regulations of the Civil Seivhe law has become one of the line arts with Govniinent officials. The hampering boundaries Imposed by the requirements or the statutes govern ing (lie appointment of classified em ployes have alvajK been a stumbling block to poliih inns 1 lie enforcement of the law so cffi anally blocks the pay ment of private obligations from the public tieasur.v tint evasions are made Wltriicvel possible. There are m m.v vvajs by which favor itism Is nude poHdc-. The National Civil Service Herurm League has re-iciv.-d report fiom its committee con cerning the implojment of laboicrs to pfifoiui Hie dutiis of dassiiied clerks. lu 1S!K;, lhS men and women were em ploji d as I.i hoicrs lu the various branch es of the Goveiuiiieut Incited nt Wash ington. In 189! IliiM number had grown to 1,(179, an increase of an, or over 50 per cent. The committee finds that the exigencies of the service did not demand tills l.ugely Increased number of labor ers, but that, on the contrary, the law was evaded o that laborers are em plojcd to perform the duties of classi fied employes. Instances hi cited where women car ried on the rolls as laborers do the work of book-tjpew rllers in the Patent Of fice. Canes are given where these wom en, seeking to take the examination, stated this fact In their applications ns showing that they knew the business. They worked hide by side with persons who had passed the examination. Similar conditions were found lu the Interior Department and Post Oilice Depaitment. When asked for an ex planation, the heads of the departments acknowledged the violations but said that the funds for the classified sorv ice would not permit the employment of properly qualified persons. However, when the committee suggested that many persons who had passed the ex amination would willingly take a la borer's pay until the higher remunera tion was possible, the officials could offer no excuse. As a remedy for the evil, the commit tee suggests that laborers shall be regis tered and appointed according to priori ty In application. Such a svstem exists ) In Boston and other cities and the War Department has spoken In favor of the rule. The attention of the President was called to the violations of the law last month. His action In the matter will be awaited with Interest by all lovers of fair play in the Civ il Service. OUR GENTLER MOOD. Albert Young, the Caliokia boy sent to Jail for ten days because he killed a song bird In the Illinois woods. Is unfortunate in that he was Innocently Ignorant of the new State law prohibiting what has heretofore been a common custom, but he is not a martyr. The luckless youngster serves, Instead', as an object lesson of signal value In Its restraining Influence on other boys and upon adults whose reckless slaughter or these birds was a potent factor in com pelling the passage of the new law. Genuine sportsmen and all humane per sons have long urged such legislation as necessary to prevent the extermination of the woodland songsters of Illinois, and the law's passage and enrorcement Is a healthy sign of a gentler public sentiment than has heretofore prevailed. It Is unquestionably and happily true that civilized. mankind is growing more friendly and appreciative toward the lower order of the animal creation. We are learning to value birds and beasts at their proper worth as members of Nature's great family. Onr literature of late contains especial proof of this wholesome fact in many delightful volumes of animal stories which en lighten us as to the kinship claims of the living things of whose lives they tell. We are being taught how to odd to our happiness by a study of animal life which does not terminate In the slaugh ter or the objects studied. Albert Young himself should grow to an understanding or the truth that he can obtain much more pleasure from a friendly companionship with birds of the air and beasts of the Held than from an indulgence of the savage Instinct to kill. He is In hard lines as well as In jail Just now, but It is for his own good and that of others like him. When he Ij once more a free boy he should try what delights there are In woodcraft without a gun. It will 1m a revelation to hlni. An Irish seeress holds that Shamrock II Is a two-leaved Shamrock and there fore tralncky. But won't there be three leaves In evidence when the Constitu tion outspceds her? Tillman and McLaurin have until Sep tember 15 to change their minds and withdraw their senatorial resignations. Wise men sometimes change their minds.

To lh Editor of The Republic St. Ixwli, Jlaj ZOl have road Tilth In creasing .ilarm jour cnmnienti upon the re cent tlciNlon of the Tnlled St ites Supnnie Court Willi re-pa to the diameter of this Goiernment. The fort of criticism in which ou anil jour correspondent Indulge Is anl i.otonly tu bring discredit upon a gre-u court, but to induce the Democratic partj to adopt a rollc) which mut In m humble opinio 1 result In Its continued exclusion from poi er and rcponIblllt. I am not "o vain as to attempt a vindica tion of the court, although I mo-st heartily approve of its decision lis splendid hitor, the charactir of Its Judges ind Its sreat authority villi ultimitelj constrain tho ac quiescence of Its met hitter crltici In the meantime I most earnptlj diprecntc the at tacks vvhlih are now b-l:iK nnde upon Its Judgment. Thy tend to excite passion and arouse opposition vihcre thue Is the greit est need of calm deliberation and a. re spectful and candid consideration of the great questions that have betn decided. Tho court had before it a point of pure Ian ; it had nothing to do with politics and ex pediency. 'its dutj was to Interpret the Constitution, to ascertain and establish the character of this Government: to determlno who compose It, what aro Its powers and hon thej- must be discharged under new and unforeseen conditions. It had before it everj fnct In our history, ever' legal prin ciple, cverj- decided case which the learn ing and ability of the greatest lawjers of the bar could marshal for Its Instruction. It was assisted by prolonged arguments of re nowned advocates No man will daro charge that It had a motive to do wrong. Its judgment f-hould receive tho respect which Is Its due. The fact that the Judges divided does not afford ground for criticism. Men are not all of one mind. Iiwjers are notoriously prone to differences To differ Is to arguo together. Out of such friction proceeds light. The eac has been thoroughly dis cussed In and out of court. No point of view has been ignored. Hvcrj- possible con tention has been made and considered. That tho splendid eloquence of the ills-sentlng Judges did not prevail Is evidence not of the weakness, but of tho strength, of tho court. In view of these considerations, I submit that lij men should treat with respectful defcrenco conclusions about questions of which thev are nece-nrllj Ignorant. Law yers who abuse the court reflect upon their order and Impair the aulhorltj of a tribu nal which tbcj-, bj everj ho-iorable motive, are bound to revere and uphold I am not. however, o much concerned for the court as for the Democratic p'-irtj. You propose a constitution il amendment which shall undo the Judgment cf the court and give to the Spinlsh Islands the liberty, the laws and the Instltutiors which are secured to ourselves. You propose to mnke It here after Impossible for this country to expand tts boundaries, to mnke it Impossible to goveri acquired territories sis their local necessities and particular characters ma' require; to extend our local laws and local Institutions, founded upon an ancient tradi tion and a special experience, to countries and peoples having a different tradition ind another experience; to enforce the Inequali ties and extend the privileges of the Dlngley law to countries which lack the Industries which that law was designed to foster: to restrain the power of Congress and Ignore the needs of dependent peoples Democrats cin never win upon such a platform. There Is no need of a constitu tional amendment. Under and within tho limitations of the Constitution. Congress now hns povier to do what Is righteous) and expedient. To forbid future aggrandize ment Is to make war Impossible and Impair the glory and usefulness of this nation. Jefferson was a Democrat, jet he pur chased I.ouislana. If he had lacked the power to do so, this State would have been a French dependency or an independent Re public. Webster opposed the admission of Texas. Benton would have excluded Ore gon. Thec men are dead. It had been assumed that their policies dl-d with them. The people have-never approved them They will never approve any men or any party that would set bo inds to the beneficent Influence of our great Republic. Y'ou miy call it what jou will, but It Is still a Re public; ft still stands for free institutions and free men If it has assumed the pow ers of nn Empire. It Is because it had as sumed fmpertaf dimensions and responsi bilities. Marshall called It an Empire In ISM It has lost none of Its attributes since. The American people are n mtlon. It must of necessity hive sovereign powers. Ho who would curtail them is no lover of his country. Iet me. In conclusion, siv that we may do for the Spanish Islinds whit Congress did for the Territory of Louisiana: frame an organic act containing ill the guaranties of Individual l'berty and private property which a Just people can conceive to be needful for a dependent people. It Is not necessary t amend the Constitution A people witling to adopt such an amendment as ou propose will pas a law which will have a similar effect. The Northwest ordinance was sufncl'm for the Mississip pi Valley. It ought to satisfy the Filipino. I. II. I.IONBERGER. ROSTAND HONORED BY FRANCE.
