CIVIL SERVICING THE MUNICIPAL C0URT8. A big step toward placing the clerks and batlffs of the Municipal Court un der civil service was taken when the Judges voted unanimously to standard ize the offices of bailiff and clerk and pay salaries according to the grade of work done. This In conformity with a request of the city council based on the report of efficiency experts who went into the clerk's office and worked side by side with the regular employes and investigated the bailiff's office as far as possible. The efficiency experts recommended what grades should bo established, and the judges now ask Anton J. Cer mak, chief bailiff, and Frank P. Dan Isch, chief clerk, to report to tho judges at their next meeting a classi fication of the present employes. The judges do not have tho power of say ing who the clerk and bailiff shall ap point, but under tho new system a new appointee must begin in the low est grade, which pays from $300 to $840 a year in the clerk's office and $900 to $1,140 a year in the bailiff's office. The $300 clerkship Is a minor position at the bridewell. The action of the judges was by resolution and was probably hastened by the delay of the council finance committee in recommending Increases in tho salaries of the judges until something was done showing that tho Judges Intended to comply with tho re quest of the council for a standardiza tion of tho two offices in question. In the future if the clerk or bailiff wishes to promote un employe tho judges must bo consulted. It Is understood that the employes In the two offices are strongly In favor of the change, as It means that they will receive puy according to the char acter of tho work done, and that there will bo greater uniformity in salaries. A GOOD CHOICE. Citizens generally, without regard to party or nationality, were pleased when they learned that Joseph Rusz klewlcz was appointed by the board of trustees of tho sanitary district to serve out tho unexpired term of the late Edward Kane as a trimteo of tho district. Mr. Kane's term would have expired In November. Under tho law if tho unexpired term is for less than one year tho trustees may name tho man to fill tho vacancy, but if for more than ono year the governor must sot a date for and call a special elec tion. Mr. Huszklowlcz lives at 1330 West Chicago avenue. Ho Is vice-president of tho Cook County Democratic organ ization, president of tho Polish Demo cratic League of Illinois, 17th ward democratic committeeman, president of the John Sobleskl Taxpayers' as sociation, secretary and organizer of tho Eaglo Building and Loan Associa tion, treasurer of the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America and Is a member of the state board of equaliza tion.

They came from tho host of friends of tho gonial railroad official, who for tho last six j cars has served ns pas senger traffic manager. Mr. Johnson took up his now duties when Mellaril II. Alshton returned to Chicago and assumed tho olllco of president of tho road. Tho appointment is commended In railroad circles.

(Continued from page 1.) keeps England safe from invasion, Just as our fleet must keep us safe. It will not do, however, to forget that genuine preparedness Includes far more than arms. A navy and nn army nre not enough. In modern wai nations fight not nlone with weapons, but with all their natural resources, with their industry and transporta tion, and above all with their patriotic devotion of their citizens. Rounded national preparedness on modern lines works not only toward securing peace, but also toward mak ing this country a better place to live In for all of us when peace has been secured. The great natural resources, like coal, Iron, copper, and water power, are the raw materials of pros perity as well as the raw materials of national defense. They must be mado available for the use of the people both in peace and in war. Hut above and beyond nil else, we must have a country defended against at tack from within and without by equal opportunity and social Justice a country whose people will stand by it because It has stood by them, Let no man imagine that because ho lives inland he Is safe from injury by war. Tho capture of Now York or San Francisco would break the routes of trade, and the resulting dislocation of business would be felt In every homo In the land. Farmer, miner, merchant, wage-earner, employe every man who works would find his livelihood In danger if the normal de mand for labor and the ptoducts of labor were overturned by war. I recognize that In the manufacture of munitions and supplies for war ex cessive profits are often found. I am in favor of eliminating them with n strong hand. But it seems to me as foolish to decide against national de fense because there Is graft as It would bo to abolish the police force In any city becauso there Is graft. The thing to do Is to drlvo out the graft, and yet maintain tho protection which is so necessary to all our people. You and I nre protected by our laws becauso behind the law there Is force. International law has no force behind It. Some day, wo hope and Intend, It will be made unsafe to break tho law of nations. As yet, however, each nation must still go unprotected or protect itself. Until tho nations unite together to enforco international law, our best hope for peace lies in making It dangerous for any nation to attack us. You and I belong to a great peace loving people. We hate war and do slro peace. We seek with eagemoss for any means that will hasten the coming of permanent pence. Wo are ready to do everything that Is just and honorable to secure it. Doubtless we join with every lover of peace In - SBRIHaBBBBaaB 5bH&-MbPIbBBBBBBH iwBBBml M BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBl u:--!mm. , - yVibbbbbbbbbbbbbbH ' ' ' I ' '- F" " ' vMaluBBBBBBBBBBH bbbbbbY '.mbbbW. -'bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI IW LbbbbL1 V'bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb1 W 'HK?sbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI WW 2K n-&BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBi W JFUImy bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI K!9t0" bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI 'lafJBBBBBBBBBBBBsl B!IbSBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBb!

CHRISTOPHER MAMER, Republican National Delegate, Eighth Diatrlct. PEA8E, Delegate, Tenth Diatrlct. looking forward to the day when rea son and understanding will settle or prevent disputes among the nations. But the road to peace does not lie through flabby weakness, as the his tory of China proves, but through self respecting strength. That Is why I believe In national defense. The mere desire for peace, and the best Inten tions on our part, cannot always se cure peace. Among nations, as among nten, It often takes but one to make a quarrel. Inst year I was In Belgium. What I saw there I shall never forget. No sacrifice can bo too great to prevent our people or any part of them from being ruled by foreign bayonets. Talk Is always cheap, but nevor cheaper than when it sets guesses and wishes against the tremendous facts of the world war. Guessing and wishing nre no de fense. Guessing and wishing cannot even keep tho peace between our cit izens. The force behind tho law does that. How then can we trust them to keep the peace between the nations? I am for preparedness because I be lieve It offers the best chance to es cape war. It Is cheap Insurance at the price. PAR ASSOCIATION SNAPS Hundreds of Lawyers Write to The Eagle to Point Out the Fact That Job-Hunters and Public Coin-Seekers Control Bar Associations.

Whllo coming up from Florida ho Btopped off at Augusta to sco tho ruins of the big fire, attended a barbecuo In South Carolina and heard Wilson deliver his apodal messago to congress on the submarlno controversy by posing ns a nowspapcr reporter. By his method Paradlso makes between 1C0 and 200 miles a day.

Ho still has part of this money, and hopes It will carry him part of tho way to the Coast this summer. ASHURST AT Back In hla younger days he isn't very old yet Henry F. Ashurst, United States senator from Arizona, served as a deputy sheriff. Ho took the work seriously and soldom did a day pass without his picking up some desperado and hustling him to the county Jail. Botoro locking; up a prisoner, however, it was necessary for a doputy sheriff to visit tho retail establishment of a certain prominent drink merchant, becauso tho koy to tho lockup was kept there on a nail behind tho bar. Thero was only ono koy, but there wcro sovcral deputy sheriffs and a great many people to bo placed In jail. So tho only thing to do was to havo tho koy In a central location suro to bo open at any hour of the day or night. The liquor mer chant, being a public-spirited, high minded citizen, hospitably contributed a nail In his establishment and tho key hung thero off and on for a long time. That nail and its location came near being the undoing of A shurat. A photographer snapped a plcturo of him one day aa he was standing buck of tho bar, en route to tho nail. This plcturo fell into unfriendly hands and from then on It was published and republished all over Arizona. Many got tho erroneous Impression that Ashurst spent moat of his time shopping about tho stores of them that sold drinks. It took him Juat seven years to live that picture down. BETANCOURT was anxiously aware of tho fact. It was don the creation he bad purchased and. of disapproval. z BBBBr-' $?$'"' ''.' aBBBBBS-; P' , i" ' ' .. , ', aaaaaaBaVvv )?
