THAT MILITARY CENSORSHIP. General Bell proposes a military censorship of tho American press In war tlmci suggested by the Japanese censorship in the recent wnr. It In held by military men that tho strict censorship which the government was enabled to exercise contributed largely to Japanese success In tho struggle with Russia, as by It 'the enemy and the world at large were shrewdly de ceived as to JapantJi plans, losses in battlo, and resources. Tho vital fea ture of the Japanese system was to compel the press tr tell deliberate false hoods whenever it seemed necessary to conceal the real facts. Wo are told by the purist and strict construction ists that such a system would not do at all for tho United States. In tho first place, such a censorship wouldn't be constitutional; that whatever cen sorship might be attempted outside of tho military areas would bea subject to the civil law, and that It would be wicked to make the newspapers tell lies, even to deceive the enemy. This may be admitted as a general propo sition, yet If tho country were engaged In a life and death struggle the strict constructionists might have another thought coming. Deceptions, strata gems, are considered fair In war. A man of integrity In civil life, drafted into tho army, might bo compelled by the exigencies of his situation to draw the onemy Into nn ambush; to lure him by false appearances and signals; to pretend that ho hud a thousand men when he had perhaps actually not more than a hundred. If a citizen can thus bo made to He In act or word, to risk his llfo as well as his reputation for veracity, why should not a nowspaper bo compelled to suppress or color tho truth If our success In arms were to depend upon It? It Is to bo hoped that no situation will ever arlso re quiring an addition to tho list of nows paper liars hut If It does, we may even havo to grin and bear it, as wo do war taxes. REAL PHILANTHROPY. Darius Ogden Mills, who has recent ly ended his earthly career full of years and honors, was a man of largo affairs, broad sympathies and diverse Interests, but by the majority of men he will long bo remembered chiefly by the unique "hotels" he was far-sighted and humane enough to found. "The Mills Hotels" exemplify philanthropy of the healthiest and boat kind. They havo served as models for other cities and other generous men of means, and no Industrial community of any slzo can afford to remain Ignorant of the principles upon which they wero found ed or of the methods of administration which have assured their success. A Mills Hotel Is an Institution at which a pcor man who Is seeking employment ISAAC N. POWELL, Popular and Painstaking City Treasurer. enn' bo clean, worm, comfortable, self respecting for; a very email expendi ture per day; It Is not a charitable Institution, since It yields n modest return on the capital Invested about 4 per cent. It helps men to preserve their dignity, to escape tho filth, phy sical and moral, and the degiadatlon of some of the notorious lodging houses while getting acquainted In a strange city and obtaining work. Such philan thropy elevates Instead of pauperizing, and society cannot havo too much of it. WHERE IGNORANCE IS BLISS. The spelling of some of the enter ing class of a great Western university has lately been published for the amusement, and perhaps warning, of students elsewhere. Words were mis spelled that any pupil of an un graded country school should know by heatt. Tho head of the Engllshtie partment, In commenting on tho mat tor, expresses tho opinion that possibly one In a hundred who thus offend is constitutionally deficient In the men tal traits which nuke an accurate speller; but with others who nave studied the matter, he lays the trou ble among the nlnety-nlno to lack of sufficiently thorough early training and drill No real substitute for the old spelling-book has ever been found, and ignorant and illiterate spelling Is not "reformed" orthography. UP TO SECRETARY WILSON. Here is another Important oiibject for the Secretary of Agriculture to In vestigate. In tho Chicago stock yards recently hogs brought prices which were practically tho highest since the civil war. To make matters worse, the supply in the west was said to uo 40 per cent less than it was a year ago. This will sadden the frugal housewife. When beef went up sho hns fallen back on fresh pork, ham or bacon. If they, too, are to get beyond her reach she will have to resign hoi self to a vegetarian life. If hogs shall remain scarco and dear tho American export trade In hog pioducts, of which lard is not tho leaRt Important, would suffer. Tho foreign demand for them would decltnu as tho prices advanced. The Englishman would go elsewhere for tho bacon ho now buys of the United States. For the sako of the domestic consumer and thu foreign trade Sec retary Wilson should 11 ml out why hogs are scaico and prescribe a' rem edy. Thero ought to be n profit in raising them nt present prices, even It corn does cost so much more than It used to. That Is a sufficient ex planation of an advance In tho price of hogs, but not of a declining supply In the face of nn increasing popula tion and demand. Surely the secre tary of agriculture, who Is so much concerned over tho higher cost of liv ing, will pay solemn attention to-ono of tho ways of bettering matters. That Is the replenishment of tho American pig pens. Fill them with plump pork ers, and ham and bacon will nut bo tho luxuries thoy hid fair to become. EAGLETS. The nomination of Harry Ilildr-ith for County Treasurer by tho Demo crats would prove a popular onu. Alderman William J. Prlnglo will have no troublo In being renominated In tho Third Ward. Ho hns mado n splendid record In tho council, nnd has always been n steadfast nnd loyal worker for tho success of his paity.
