"What's the matter?" he said, stop ping, ton. Something he said had startled her, evidently. "How can you say such a thing?" -he cried. "You love to tight !" "Me?" "You do! You love fighting.

SCHEME NOT WORKED OUT Idea, to Put It Simply, I to Inject "Mors Business Into Government" Women' Club to Hav Hsadquar ttrs in Capital. By EDWARD B. CLARK Washington. After w ailing for a year, Ihe senate lias finally taken Steps to adjust it legislative function to lite budget sysieiu. It lias changed its rules, so that nil appropriiit ion I i I it- will hereafter be bundled by one com miltee, the committee on npproprin tlons. In Ibe past, seven of the big annual supply bills have hcn considered b other committees. The post olllce bill has been handled bv the post olllcl committee; Hie nrmy bill, by the lulli tnry affairs committee; tlie navy bill by the naval ulTairs committee; the agricultural bill, by the committee on agriculture; the river ami harbors bill, by the committee on commerce the diplomatic and consular hill, by the foreign relations committee, am the Indian appropriation hill, hy tht committee on Indian affairs. The house, In which the appropria Hon hills always originate, wn fortx-d to act earlier than the senate, anil adopted a plan for a single enlarged appropriations committee. Further a plan was worked out under which the appropriation bill were entirely rearranged, with different grouping ol Items and different titles. Idea New in This Country. The whole question of the budget system Is new yet. The system is a tremendous effort to Improve the or ganization of the government and to group Itx activities in such a way that the public at large can see them am) the average citizen may know what his government is doing with the money it takes from hi in In taxes. The 1'resldont, when he came Into office, pleinltxl for more business In government. The budget system Is one of the means undertaken to bring this nhout. In the business world the president of a corporation and gen eral managers ure the executives. They propose lines of policy to the board of director involving various exjiendl tures. The board of direr-tors, who represent the slts-kholders of the cor Hiratlon. pass upon these proxisals. Itouglily speaking, the President of the I'nited States and his cabinet may be considered the executives of the country, the congress may be consid ered the hoard of directors and the people are the stockholder of the gov ernment. The executive submits, with the assistance of bis cabinet and the bureau of the budget, the estimates of what Is needed for the government to the congress) or hoard of directors, who In turn pass upon these matters for the people or stockholders of the government. Hut congress reserves to Itself the right to cut down or add to these estimates na It deem wise, The suggestion was made that In the process of evolution of the budget system there shall eventually be formed a Joint congressional budget committee. This Joint committee's duties would be to canvass both the estimates of the revenue for the en suing fiscal year and the estimates submitted by the executive of expendi tures for the government, and then determine what the total amount of the expenditures for that year should be, and allocate a maximum to be ex pended by the various branches of the government, as, for Instance, the army, the navy, the Pepartment of Ag rlculture, etc. Then only by a sus pension nf the rules of the house and venule would It be possible to exceed this uinoiint. Such a plan, they hold, would still further tend to put more "business in the government." Women to Have Headquarters.
