-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.
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
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
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.
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
Mr. Flad gives estimate on the cost
of such a plant that seem to remove all
danger of a deficiency of revenue. He

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

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

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
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.
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.

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.
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.

To lh Editor of The Republic
St. Ixwli, Jlaj ZOl have road Tilth In

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
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
