Plii iv the Younger. We Cannot Go Backward We understand that a majority of the sub- com mittee have agreed upon the proponed amendments t the city charter and that all of them have to do with the business of depriving the city manager of his power, leaving full control of the appoint ive offices in the hands of the commission. So far as we have been able to ascertain, no economy is proposed and no proposition for increased effi ciency offered. Nothing but offices, jobs in the con trol of those who go before the people for their votes, their hands filled with patronage and their mouths with promises. The manager is to be restricted, deprived of opportunity to display those businesslike abilities for which alone he should he selected, except when permission for their exercise is granted by at least three of the five members of the commission who would not once in fifty times be elected for his ability to give the city a businesslike administration, would not once in fifty times lie elected for "their ability to give the city a businesslike administration. We are not speaking of the members of the pres ent commission, but of the general tendency of the public to disregard the capabilities of those whom they elect to office. If these amendments to the charter are to bo adopted we may inquire, why a city manager at all? Why a commissioner? Why not revert to the old city council system which was at least cheaper? it could not have been less efficient and useful than the government would be under a charter as eurs would be. if it should be changed by the amendments said to have been agreed upon. We cannot believe that a majority of the com mission will entertain these proposed amendments when they are submitted to it. And still less can we believe that the voters of Phoenix would iin cleilake to support such an expensive form of the I alronage system which certainly would not promise and could not give, if it would, a more efficient government than we had under the old system. Phoenix cannot afford to take a backward step which would certainly land it into the political mire deeper than ever. lender the old system the city was in partisan politics and that was bad enough, but immeasur ably better than to be in clique politics. mas season of 1642 that the good citizens of Keni lon, in Northamptonshire, first saw tne ghostly spectacle and heard-the roar of muskets and can non on riigh. It was between twelve and one in the morning wher "there was heard by soma shep herds and travellers the noise of soldiers giving out their List groans, at which they w ra 'much i.inazed. Then appeared in the air those Incor poreal fcvi'dicra that made these clamors, with er. signs displayed, drums beating, muskets going off, cannons clcharged." Until after three ir the morning tiie dreadful fight on ligh continued, "the idntterim' of arms, noise of cannons, cries of soldiers so amazing and terrifying, the poor men, that they could not be lieve they weie mortal, or give credit to their ears and eyes. "Run away they durst not, for fear of being made a prey to these infernal solrtirs; ; and so they, with much fear and affright, stayed to behold the success of the business. When the uproar ceased, the poor men, glad they were gone, made all haste to Keniton and there knocking up Mr. Wood, a justice of the peace, who called up his neighbor, Mr. Marshall, the minister, they gave them an ac count of the whole passage, and averred it upon their oaths to be true." "Suspending their judgment till the next night about the same hour, they, with the same men. and all substaptial men of that and the neighbor ing perishes, drew thither: where, about half an hour after their arrival, on Sunday, being Christmas night, appeared in . the same tumultuous warlike manner the same two adverse armies, fighting with as much spite and spleen as formerly. The next night, they appeared not, nor all that week But on the ensuing Saturday night, in the same place and at the same hour, they were again sen with far greater tumult, fighting in the manner above mentioned for four hours, or very near, and then vanished: appearing again on Sunday night and performing the same actions of hostility and blood shed Successively the next Saturday and Sun day the same tumults and prodigious sights and actions were observed. "The rumors whereof, coming to His Majesty, at Oxford, he immediately dispatched 'thither Co lonel Lewis Kirke, Captain Dudley, Captain Waith man and three other gentlemen of credit, to take full view and notice of the said business; who, first hearing the relation of Mr. Marshall and otherr, stayed ther till Saturday night following, wherein they saw and heard the fore-mentioned prodigies, and so on Sunday, distinctly knowing divers of the apparitions by their faces, as that of Sir Edmund Varney and others that were slain: of which, upon oath, they made testimony to His Majesty. ' In their report to the King, the investigators proclaimed the unusual occurrence as a ghostly re production of the battle that had taken place two months before on the adjacent fields at Edgehill between the forces of the King and those of Parliament. A Russian War Measure A war measure, which according to the Asso ciated Press dispatches has been taken by the Russians in Warsaw could be profitably applied as a peace measure in almost any country. A military order prohibiting speculation in food supplies an 1 other necessities undc-r penally of court martial, resulted in a twenty- five per cent reduction in prices. In England many years ago it was found neces sary to enact laws, with the severest penalties against forestalling, the "cornering" of food supplies and whatever the people might need. The evil had become so great that I rices were beyond the reach of all except the wealthy and there was bitter suffering among the poor. In this country until within recent years there were no laws at all against the "cornering" of the necessities of life and even now the laws are so lnild as to interfere as slightly as possible with the' operation of the speculator who has been r garded as a necessary avenue between the con sumer and the producer. It may be said in his favor also, that as a rule he preyed upon his fellow speculators so that the public has not al ways been seriously affected. His "corners" usually did not last long enough to influence materially the market which affected the consumer. Nor did the corners contribute to an increase of the prices of the producers. Now and then though, the with holding of food supplies from the market, or such a control of a food supply as enabled a small group tf men to fix prices, has greatly d:sturbed the public. We believe that such a condition has con tributed in part to the high cost of living. Pop-tlar extravagance lias had something to do with it and naturally changing conditions have done the rest. Nothing Really New There is nothing new as Solomon once ob served. . Most of us had thought that the Zep pelins would add a novel touch to the present war but their demonstrations have only recalled a startling episode of two and three quurter cen turies ago and of which there exists an official but long forgotten account of wonderful occurrences in England in 1642. In a pamphlet printed at the time, has been found the strange tale of a gh6stly warfare seen by the king's own investigators, in the darkness of the night, when the clash of arms and groans of the dying were heard by the awe-stricken wit nesses. "It was on a Saturday night in the Christ- THE GREAT VALUE OF SAVINGS BANKS ."There is no surer exidence of the prosperity of a community than when its savings banks shmv healthy and growing deposits." Burlington Hawk eye. Following are half a dozen outstanding advan tages of using a savings bank or the savings de partment of a commercial hank or trust company: 1. Safety. Savings banks are the safest finan cial institution in this country1. Recent statistics showed the total liabilities of failed savings banks in proportion to the aggregate deposits of all such banks to be only about six ten-thousands of 1 per cent. Deductions for the amount realized on the. substantial assets of those few unfortunate institu tions still ?urther reduces the already infinitesimal loss to depositors. 2. Ability to deposit or withdraw any amount at any time. Some banks have a minimum for deposit, although it is usually a low one 5 cents. 25 cents, 50 cents, or a dollar, as the case may be. In different states there is a different maximum for savings deposits ranging from $1000 to $:!000 or $5000. Ordinarily money can be withdrawn with out any notice whatever. In times ot panic or pos sible panic, however, a 30 or 60-day rule may be enforced. 3. Regular Income. -- There are few, if any, other investments where it is possible to put in small, odd amounts at any time and have your money begin to earn interest promptly, as it does in a savings account. Savings bank interest is something you l-an depend upon. 4. Compound Interest. The investor in bonds or stocks must collect his interest or dividends, and If he does not use the money, must attend personally to investing it. Interest allowed by the bank at the end of a given period, if not with drawn, is placed to the depositor's credit, and itself draws Interest from that time on, thus automatic ally becoming a part of the deposit. That means a constant increase in the amount at interest, and in the interest payments. 5. Freedom from Tax. In most states savings bank deposits are free from taxation by state or local authorities. 6. The Habit of Saving. Last, but by no means least, of the advantages of a savings ac count is what might be called the reflex influence on the depositor himself. It firmly fixes in him the valuable habit of saving, which will be a lifelong benefit to him. , T. D. MAO GREGOR. JAWBREAKING NAMES The Belgians are not to be the only recipient of American charity. The Russians in the city of New York are arranging for a raid on the purses of the charitable. They do not waste time and ef fort taking up collections in churches. They go after contributions from wicked people who attend theaters and balls. There was given in New York last week a new ballet called "PuppenFee," composed by Tschaikow sky, with scenery designed by Mstislav Dobougins. The artists consisted of Mile. Plaskovietzka, Mils. Svirskaia, Glazounoff and the great Russian dancer, Anna Pavlowa.

Yet it has been done. In sad. gore-stained, trampled Belgium men uncover their heads, women murmur a prayer of gratitude and little children courtesy when they see the Star-Spangled Banner. America has saved them from starvation. The great western nation which they had known only as a giant of industry has been transformed into an angel of mercy, the messenger of heaven to their awful need. That gives our flag a place in the sun of which all Americans may be proud.

Weed in Register Thomas F. Weedin calls at tention to an error in the report of the state land commission, touching the order setting the fees for filing selec tions. When the first selections of state lands were filed, the fee asked by the register and receiver, who were then Frank H. Parker and C. E. Arnold, was a dollar on each 160 acre tract. The filings were held up by the commis sioner of the general land office, who maintained that the fee ought to be two dollars. Later, the secretary of the in terior, on appeal, sustained Arnold and Parker. The report states that it was the local office that held up the filings and demanded the two dollar fee. .
