Bishop Patrick Why Arizona Needs Her Under our present piecemeal, political, pulblic school system those whom we elect to administer it have no real power under our laws. They have cer tain duties to perform, mostly routine or clerical. But they are without authority. They can only advise for the betterment of the schools and against the waste of school funds against which there is no real check. . The trustees of each district constitute a board of possible autocrats. Everything is in their hands and they can be controlled only by the forcefulness or persuasion of the teacher the superintendent, the county sperintendent or the superintendent of public Instruction for the state. They can be compelled to do nothing and there Is little In connection with the schools under the dominion of each board that they can be prohibited from doing. We have some good schools, and we have some counties in which the schools are almost uniformly good, but that is in spite of, and not because of our system. Now and then we find boards of trustees that are wise and beneficent autocrats. . Under such an arrangement as this it is the more necessary that we should consider the character and personality of those we elect to administer the laws; we should exercise the greater care in choosing these advisory (and they are no more than that,) officers, and we should see that they are officers of force, judgment. Initiative, and capable of taking a leader ship which the law leaves lying upon the ground, of collecting a leadership of the fragments which the law scatters about among the school boards of tho counties and the state. That is precisely what Miss Toles the republican candidate for state superintendent of public instruc tion has done in the last four years In her own county of Cochise. Miss Toles Is now serving her second term as county superintendent. Though she is a re publican she was elected in the strongest democratic county in the state. But she was not elected as a republican and she has not been continued in office as a, republican. She was known in the' large voting centers of Bisbee and Douglas to be a capable teacher. Tho voters who knew her recognized her executive "ability. The people of the whole county became ac quainted with her and her methods during her first term. ; , - The schools of Cochise have been welded together as those of no other county in the state have been. Miss Toles has been allowed to proceed, not in dis regard of the law, but as if there was no code at all. She has been permitted to make a code as -she has gone along. Of course, she has done nothing inhibited by the law. Such a school officer could create a good school system in a community where there is no sys tem at all, if only she could have the confidence and co-operation of the people. Miss Toles has both. , Her leadership has been accepted. Such an officer is the kind we especially need now. Such an officer is the more needed because of our decrepit, inadequate laws. Such an administration as she would give would be the most convincing argu- . ment to the legislature and the people in favor of a modern school co.de. Miss Toles, of course, will be nominated as a republican because the law foolishly requires that candidates for this office must be nominated by par ties. But Cochise will cast a great democratic vote for her, for down there they do not think of her as a republican but as a foremost educator and executive. The Wets and Governor Cox There is probably no more of a foundation for the charge that the brewing and distilling interests are contributing to the democratic national campaign fund than there is for the foolish accusations Gover nor Cox is making concerning the origin and magni tude of the republican fund. Judging though, from the past performances of the brewers and the dis tillers and the position of Governor Cox in Ohio for the last four years, we could have no doubt that if the -ets were making campaign contributions this year, Governor Cox would be the beneficiary. But we can see no reason why the wets should invest in a campaign now, why they should part with real money unless moved by a sense of gratitude. There is nothing in the present situation that can be converted into a service for them. Governor Cox, even as president could not restore their departed in dustries. He might as president, fail to veto a measure amending or repealing the present rigid in terpretation of the eighteenth amendment, but pro bably no president would interpose a veto of any legislation bearing on prohibition. President Wilson, it is true, vetoed the Volstead act, but President Wil son is rather outside the run of presidents. Beside that, his veto was a sop to the American Federation of Labor to please which another president would probably not go so far out of his way. The accusation, though, that the wets have con tributed to the Cox fund is a very natural one to make, but it probably would not have been made ex cept as a rejoinder to the governor's wild charges. It could be made with an appearance of plausibility and no doubt thousands who are familiar with events in Ohio politics within the last four years will accept the accusation as well founded. There are certain undisputed facts: In 1012 when the republican party was divided, Mr. Cox was elect ed governor. Two years later, though the party was still divided, but less sharply, with James It. Garfield a p repressive candidate reecivir:;; something more than 00,000 vot"s, Frank B. Willio defeated Governor Cox for re-clcction by a plurality of more than 30.000. ibit two ye -ir.-! Wii. The an:-.- t ." o: -e i rr : . .ar i-.'. : h v...s air. . a- Ct-x rimed fro tables on s o' this ovc rturn were plain to h t't' hio situation. The proh i - wo acute in that state, much s y under local option- But all county, a stronghold of the wets and one of the great brewing centers of the country had long been over whelmingly republican. It was also largely German. Willis was a strong advocate of statewide prohibition and the papers of Mr. Cox were construed to be not unfriendly to Germany. Anyway xfamilton county turned in a large majority for Cox, who likewise re ceived much more than the normal democratic vote in all of the large cities. Two years later he prevailed in the same districts, though Cleveland began veer ing toward prohibition. Governor Cox was then recognized as the can didate of the wets. There was neither concealment nor denial of that. His position was so well under stood that his subsequent criticism of the Volstead act when he became a candidate for the democratic nomination for president, made it plainer only to the people living outside of Ohio. It was hts record with respect to prohibition that secured for him the oppo sition of Mr. Bryan in the national convention. If the governor were now, or could be, as presi dent, in a position to contribute to the rehabilitation of the brewing and distilling industries, there could be no reasonable doubt that he would nave the earnest financial and other support of the wets. But he can not be placed in such a position, and the wets are most unlikely to be sending good money after bad. So far as concerns the brewers and distillers, the wet and dry issue is a last year's bird's nest. The only wet and dry issue is one affecting intense prohibition ists and in a still less degree, those whose only hope is a slender one that sometime there may be allowed the use of light wines and a slightly stronger forti fication of beer. As a serious disturber of the currents of party politics, prohibition is as dead as the abolition of slavery. Wet and dry democrats and republicans have something else to think of some living issues, and we may expect to see them next November vot ing the tickets of the parties which best express their own views on international, commercial, financial and economic policies. Most of them, we believe, will be back In their old parties. Without Sordid Cash An interesting development of the campaign fund investigation, though it is taking the investigators into a somewhat foreign field, is the fact that the democratic congressional campaign managers have had the free run of the government printing office and the free tyse of the mails for the dissemination of 1,300,000 copies of democratic speeches. Thus, may be accounted for in part, the irregularities of the postal service of which we have all been complaining. It is true that Representative flood who made an admission that the democrats were making use of the facilities of the printing office and the mails, coupled with his admission a statement that his com mittee was pledged to pay about $5,000 for this service. It has been the experience of most printers and pub lishers that if campaign matter is not uaid for in advance it is not subsequently paid for. It Is on their experience, that a rule has generally been es tablished by publishers requiring payment in advance for such matter, though they might extend almost unlimited credit to the same persons for commercial printing. We can hardly believe that the obligation to the government printing office ever would have been met or heard of but for the development of it in the course of the investigation. The country, we may imagine, may be thankful that the administration of the railroads and the tele phone and the telegraph was taken away from the federal government or the trains and wires would have broken down under the Intensity of the national democratic campaign. A campaign so conducted with everything free is of course, attended by a minimum outlay of sordid cash. There is no great burden on anybody. It is so evenly distributed over the whole electorate that the .people do not know it is there. They are "cor rupted" before they know it, and no vile cash figures in the proceedings. Under the old system the expenses of a campaign were met by a comparatively few of the members of each party. Under this new system the weight like the gentle dews of heaven descends upon all, demo crats and republicans alike. We admit that it does not seem right to make republican taxpayers pungle for a democratic campaign. But then, "what we don't know, don't hurt us," and in this case we would not have known and would not have been hurt if It hadn't been for this nosy Investigating committee. So, If we feel sore about it we know whom to blame. Abas! the committee! Disband it and leave us in blissful ignorance of what is being done to us when we are not looking. "THE PRESENT CRISIS" "Once to every man and nation comes the moment to decide, "In the strife of Truth with Falsehood, for the good or evil side .... "Then it is the brave man chooses, while the coward stands aside, "Doubting in hi3 abject spirit, while his Lord is crucified." Lowell's words fit any crisis. The choice is. al ways "present," and the problem is always the same to feel and fight one's way toward a larger life and a better world for everyone, when the road is full of danger and there is no clear light to go by. To fight for a vision that one sees but dimly! and to risk present comfort to do it! That takes courage. But if a man has it in him it is one of the things that makes life worth the living. The man who is willing to do it is one whose story is worth the telling. The men one reads about took fighting chances and backed their vision with their lives. Think of Columbus cajoling his crew to go a little further into a nameless ocean, that might lead nowhere; of the Pilgrim Fathers facing untold dangers in a new land; of the Declaration of Independence signed with the hangman around the corner; of the frontiersmen, the Arctic explorers, the inventors who starved and struggled to put theirideas across, of the struggling poets and artists who 'left the world a priceless heri tage. "But the thing may fail, and it costs to try." ' Quite right, my child. It cost Christ comething to redeem the world. But wasn't it worth while? c Cll: imilion EVENING By Edmund Vance Cooke What seemed a green and golden globe Assumes a sombre husk, As earth slips on an outer robe Of twilight trimmed with dusk. The forest hastes across the mist To meet the drooping sky. Until his bearded lips have kissed Her pallor, ere they die. The last, sad shadows sigh away And scatter wide and far. As nipht steals on the gasping day And slabs her with a star. And through the air a piping throb !Vrrver trembles on. That mournful, low, symphonic sob Wliii.h blinds the dut;k. to dawn.

Jefferson St. Adv. ii o HOW FAST CAN A RACING YACHT SAIL? The maximum speed of a yacht, supposing- that her model and the cut of her sail are correct, is dependent upon certain adventitious conditions, such as the right kind of wind, the sea, and (above all) the skipper. The ideal con ditions for speed are when a yacht is reaching in a smooth sea with the wind over the quarter, that is well abaft the beam, and with everything set that site can carry without an excessive angle of heel. A widely known authority. Major B. Heckstall-Smith, author of "The Complete yachtsman," in answer to the question. "How fast can a rac ing yacht sail?" states that at full speed a racing schooner about 105 feet on the water line can do about 15.8 knots. This would be in a strong breeze with the wind on the quarter. Assuming that this speed is about right, as he believes, he tells us that with exactly the same breeze, a 90 footer can go 14.2 knots; a 75-footer, 13.4 knots; a CO-footer, 12 knots; a 50-footer, 10.9 knots; a 36-footer, 9 knots; and a 20-foot boat, 7 knots.

Brc sil, she levied a distress on a house occupied by him in the Rue Oopernie and seized various articles, including the gilded bath. The prince, however, is married, and he maintains that the furniture belongs to his wife and is therefore not liable to seizure for hi:s debts. The court has ordered the bailiffs to stay their hand until the ownership of the furniture is estab lished, so that, for the present at any rate, the prince can continue to enjoy his bath.

P. Leased WireJ WASHINGTON. Aug. 30. Business and industrial conditions during the re mainder of the calendar year will bo marked by a "definite trend to a some what lower level of prices," according to a semi-annual report upon crops and business given out today by the United States chamber of commerce. The committee which prepared the report added the general financial opinion in the country was that the readjustment would be accomplished without "finan cial disorder or any sudden economic calamity." Tight money, unrest of labor, loosen bonds in some phases of social life, the Russian-Polish war and the high cost of necessities, are enumerated as disturb ing business factors but in the opinion of the committee there is no need for the country to become panicy over any of these matters.
