THE LOAN SHARKS AND THEIR METHODS. The new Massachusetts law govern ing the business of loan sharks could well be studied by our District guardians who seem unaccountably slow getting some protective legislation for this city. Massachusetts' act takes effect this week, and is the culmination of careful consideration and considerable legisla tive experience with this business. It is the demonstration that legislation on this subject is no wild experiment in an unknown field. It is no foolish interference with legitimate business. It is simply the effort to make usury laws efficient, to give the poor man a decent chance, to stop one of the worst kinds of oppression that is exercised in our cities against the needy and- the ignorant. The business is falling rapidly into control of "chains" of agencies in cities. If a borrower moves from one town to another the agency in his new town is promptly on his trail. Interest rates actually earned are found in some agencies to have run to 300 per cent a year. The heavy risks are found much exaggerated; losses are really very few. Most of the loan companies extend credit for amounts ranging from $5 to $50. For a loan of $5 one pays in several companies $1 per week for seven weeks; for a $10 loan the pay ments are $1 per week for fifteen weeks, or $1.50 for ten weeks; for a $15 loan $2 per week is exacted for ten weeks, and for a $20 loan, $2.60 per week for ten w eeks. The favored patron whose credit is good for $25 pays $1.80 for twenty weeks, or $2 per week for eighteen weeks. A $50 loan, which is not often made, calls for three monthly payments of $21.60. The new Massachusetts law estab lishes a supervisor of loan agencies, and gives him plenary power. After careful investigation it was found that the rate of interest could not be fixed by the law, so provision was made that its maximum should be 3L per cent a month, but the State supervisor has authority to regulate it. No assign ment of wages by a married man is legal unless indorsed by his wife, and in no case is an assignment good unless accepted in writing by the employer of the borrower. A common practice among the Mas sachusetts companies, it was discovered, is to have the borrower make his note for a larger sum than he actually gets. Then the companies claim that they are not technically loaning money, but "buying notes!" This sort of pro cedure is not to be countenanced. In order to prevent it the supervisor is given full power to investigate all books, papers, and accounts of the agencies whenever he wishes, so that he may know whether such transac tions are going on. It is a standing reproach to the government of Washington that our legislative authority seems unable or incapable of dealing intelligently with these problems of the modern, complex life of cities. Congress contains few experts in municipal affairs. It ought to make the best use of those it has. It ought to seek the experience and guidance of outside experts in city ad ministration. These things it notor iously does not do. The Washington Times has vivid recollection of a certain crisis of the fight for cheaper gas in this city. The Times hired one of the country's greatest experts in gas business to make a presentation of the people's case for cheaper gas, nhd paid him $100 a day. And when he was thus hired and ready to appear it was necessary to beg and plead with the chairman of the House District Committee then the Hon. Samuel W. Smith, larc but unlamented to get the privilege of putting this witness on the stand! This affair of the loan shark legis lation has developed a very similar situation. The Senate's debate the other day showed how innocent of any real, useful information are most of the men whose votes psvill decide what sort of a law on this loan question Washington will get, or whether it will get any. This sort of government is bad for the city and a discredit to the system under which it is imposed. HUNTING THE MOSQUITO WITH EXPLOSIVES. Breaking a butterfly on a wheel has usually been regarded as an exaggerat ed use of dynamic energy, but that ever interesting Tarrytown, 2s. Y., has a citizen who has adopted a measure for slaying the pestilent mosquito which seems scarcely less exaggerated. He simply waits until the psycho that is, until the proper moment has arrived, and blows the aggregated covey of mos quitoes into Kingdom Come. There is presumptive evidence that Tarrytown is not more free from mos quitoes than any other community within flying distance of the Jersey bogs, and George Fox thought long and deep while he was lying awake at night chasing the pestilence that buzzes in darkness. On a recent outing he-bought for the children a juimber of those little balloons so dear to the heart of childhood. Incidentally it seems almost incredible that a tender father could devise so diabolical a scheme against anything as he finally cooked up against the mosquito. Directed by some whim which he would have difficulty in explaining, he filled one of the toy balloons with citronella, blew it up, and placed it on the pillow. Then he blew out the light and waited. It was not for long that he had to wait, for in a short timcyi attracted by the citronella, the mosquitoes began to gather like crows in a. corn field. With all the zeal of their race' they began boring into the inflated balloon, mar veling in the meantime, no doubt at the smoothness of the victim's coun tenance. Suddenly, like the cataclysm on board the Casabianca burning deck, thero was an explosion which fairly shook the room, and when the wreck age was cleared away it was discovered that the shock had killed every mos quito in the neighborhood. More modest himself, Mr. Fox ex plains that those which escaped the first impact probably died from ex haustion in their efforts to get away. At all events the story which is re garded as quite as accurate as the av erage of thoso emanating from Tarry town goes on to relate that Mr. Fox is preparing to place his invention on the market, and feels confident that he has at last solved the vejeed question of eliminating the mosquito from our summer lives. The cannonading would get on the nerves of some people, of course, but in desperate extremities perhaps the effort would be worth while. ANOTHER POLITICAL FUNER AL FOR MR. BRYAN. It is now some fifteen years since publicists and press of a certahi per suasion began holding political funerals for William Jennings Bryan on fre quent occasions. Meanwhile Mr. Bryan has flourished as the green bay tree and been able to command the nomination of a great politicalparty for President whenever he wanted it. General ex pectation is that 1012 will be his fallow season, but that his word will be potent enough to prevent the nomination of any man he will not approve. The Undorwood-Hryan controversy has afforded another opportunity for those platitudinous panegyrists of the Uriah Heap t-chool to unburden them selves of another set of funeral ora tions. Let us urge ardent mourners not unduly to hasten in buying tickets to the Bryan obsequies. Mr. Bryan is represented as "repudiated by the Democratic House," and "rejected by his party's leadership." Bosh! Mr. Bryan made a mistake, which is one of his specialties. He made a huge one in 1890 and got more votes then, and twice afterward, than any candidate for President had ever polled before 1890! The strength of Mr. Bryan does not depend on the attitude of the Demo cratic representation in Congress. It never did, and never will. It is with the plain people, not the party mana gers. It is not based on any assump tion of Mr. Bryan's infallibility, but on a firm conviction of his honesty. Mr. Bryan made a mistake that was made by plenty of other people. He observed Mr. Underwood's political geography, and he noted the delay about bringing forward a steel schedule. Ergo, he assumed a casual relation that did not exist. Mr. Un derwood's explanation, backed by the members of the Ways and Means Com mittee, is complete and satisfying. It is merely regrettable that this expla nation was not given to the public sooner. But as to any serious, permanent im pairment of Mr. Bryan's hold on public confidence as a result of his fulmi natjons on the steel schedule, it is non sense. Mr. Bryan does not play the sort of game for points that smaller politicians play. He doesn't maneuver to "get something on" his antagonist and credit himself with a number of points proportioned to the bigness of the something or the skill of the maneuver. He plays for the masses of his party, and his hold on them is what enables him to influence those leaders who are always so ready to claim the platform with funeral elegiacs. Mr. Bryan has proved time and again that he is stronger with any other Democratic organization in the nation than with the caucus of Demo cratic Representatives in Congress. He will prove it again. "PUPPET PEERS"--THE NEW BRITISH JOKE. "Puppet peers" is what the Unionists threaten to call the men whom Prime Minister Asquith may induce the King to raise to the peerage in order to carry the reform program through parliament. A nation which lately paid so feeling a tribute to the memory of V. S. Gil bert can afford at this critical juncture to take a look over the present aggre gation of peers and then have a hearty laugh. "Puppet peers" is as amusing as the cry of "American dollars" hurled at Asquith and Redmond by men who boast of the support of such dollar endowed noblemen as the Duke of Marlborough and the Duke pi Man chester. The nearer the British standpatters come to the inevitable curtailment of their power, and the equally inevitable establishment of home rule for Ire land, the shorter becomes their temper and the shallower their wit. Xor can their feelings be comforted by the fact that they have already been soundly beaten twice at the polls on this very issue of progressive reform. 44 Can She Make Good As Our Queen of Society ? " New York Fashionables Ask of Astor s Fiancees Eighteen-Year-Old Madeline Force Has Difficult Task Ahead. MAY TAKE PLACE OF HUSBAND'S MOTHER Already Mrs. Ogden Mills Has Ac cepted Beautiful Young Woman. Horsemanship, aviation, or any one of a dozen out-of-door sports, at well aa the art of social chatter and how to sail triumphantly through a long soci ety dinner, are allko open books to Madeline Talmage Force. The eighteen-year-old girl, daughter nf thn aoninr member of a forwarding firm, whose family, although admitted to the best of Brooklyn sociwty, never stepped through the sacred portals of wealth and culture until ner meeting with Colonel Astor, is loosed upon aa well fitted for the position of social arbiter, which may be liars through her marriage with the multimillionaire But "It's up to her," In tne words of hr fnrtv-seven-vear-old fiancee, who. while waiting with her for the launch which was to take him and the girl aboard his yacht yesterday evening for Newport, declared that he was very happy, and that there waa nothing left to say. Is Lifted From Comparative Seclusion. So. when her engagement to Colonel Astor was announced, this eighteen- year-old girl was llued from the com naratlVA seclusion of the " ounger iet" In New York society to the eminence of a girl whose future as a. social leader Is assured. In the full glare oi publicity the women who now are tne arbiters or New York society since tne death of Colonel Astor's mother nave scrutinized her, and one of them, at least Mrs. Ogden Mills, leader of the Newport colony has stood sponsor for her since she stepped from the deck of Mr. As ter's acht, the Noma, late yesterday. Since her bow to so.iety she was mud, a Christmas present to the ex- ciuslves of New York on December 22, 1W she attracted but little attention, moving as she did In the younger set. The reason that she did not attract more attention wai because she was a perfectly finished product. She danced well, conversed well, could take baat and saddle with the rest of them. Her ease and poise were remarkable, and because the did as well as any body else, there was no cause for the critical society dames to comment upon her. But, in the two days which have passed since the announcement that some time In the early fall, Madeline T-"-f.rt hrt nmf snr is elcrhteen and --, .. .. -.- others say is twenty, would become the mistress of the Astor millions, society folk have been busy remembering things about dainty Miss Madeline. Astor and Girl Much In Each Other's Company. Ever since her birth, some society folk who have taken up clairvoyance as a fad say, the horoscope of Misr Madeline must have been linked with the Astor fortunes, for in the same var that Colonel Astor married pretty Alva Willing, Madeline Force was born. They recall, too, that shortly alter hn nnd Colonel Astor met at Bar Har bor, about a year ago, the was seen What's on the Program in Washington Today Concert by the Fifteenth Cavalry- Band, Montross Park, 7.30 p. m.

They will originate and maintain some decent stjles in dress, instead of simply tak ing and holding to the styles which have been the most effective for the purposes of the women of the so-called "under world." They will lengthen their skirts until they are much nearer the ground than the so-called "smart" styles, and instead of only bringing the neck-band up the 'inch." which "Lo retta" suggested yeste:day, would bring them within the line of modesty, they will at least keep them above the col lar bone.

August 1, 1911. LET ARIZONA COME INTO UNION To the Editor oT THE TIMES: While reciprocity and the tariff have occup!ed''the attention of a great man people, there is' yet another question that interests people hers from the West. The statehood Issue tor New Mexico and Arizona is to be voted on in the Senate next Monday. It appears that the principal objection to Immedi ate statehood comes from Democrats. I think this an Inopportune time for Democrats to balk on the question. No matter what Is done next Monday, New Mexico will come In as a State !n June, 1912. It seems assured that New Mexico will send two Republican Senators to Washington, and will also participate In the Presidential election. If the Nel son resolution Is defeated next Monday, It means that Arizona will be kept out for a long time perhaps ror two or three years. Arizona, being naturally Democratic, would send two Democratic Senators. If immediate statehood "t, de nied her, she will be without represen tation In the Senate, while New Mexico will have two Republicans at the De cember session, 1912. It would look ilke good politics for the Democrats to make a small concession to the President that of resubmitting the recall feature of the Arizona constitution and let Ari zona come Into the Union. It would seem, too, that the insurgents would welcome two Democratic Senators from Arizona to offset the two standpatters who are most likely to come from New Mexico. Business and social con ditions call for statehood In ths two Territories. If the President Is willing to let the people out there decide their political Issues at a ruture election, It would appear that Congress ought to be latuifled, .WESTERN HAN.

Education Gained At Exclusive Schools. Her training, which will stand her M good stead should the rest of New York society follow Mrs. Ogden Mills' ex ample, has been thorough. All that two exclusive finishing scnools. Miss Ely's In Greenwich and Miss Spence's in New York, could give her has bten hers. Then there were trips to Europe and studies under foreign tutors. She was counted an especially bril liant pupil In Miss Spencer's school, and when she made her bow to New York social life, she was Immediately taken up by the "Junior League," as a clique of then debutantes Is knowm. She then became active in amateur theatricals, and won quite a following when she appeared In several of New York's society plays. And this li the sprt of girl, who at the time of her approaching marriage with Col. John Jacob Astor, finds her self fating an opportunity to rise to social pre-eminence, but who is also confronted with the social record left by Colonel Astors mother, at whoso nod social aspirants were admitted or denied, and by the question which Is being asked everywhere, "Will she make good?"
