AJJ0U. J terns Gathered in From Far and Near Prison Reform. From the Houston Post. Since the abuses of the Texas peni tentiary system have challenged the attention of every citizen in the pro motion of the cause of humane civili zation it is well enough in seeking to remedy the evils so shamelessly ap parent to gather from the experience of other states in their efforts to im prove the system, which, at best is necessarily a perplexing problem. Sev eral of the older states of the Union, however, have addressed themselves to the problem of the real intent of the law In consigning men to prison that is, reformatory punishment in the interest of society and have made commendable progress in the direc tion of establishing a humane system which accomplishes that purpose. Among western states which have suc cessfully experimented along that line is Missouri. . In connection with what has been accomplished in that state by the ad option of a prison rule simple as it is efficacious, the Kansas City Star says: ".One of the best of the peniten tiary reforms promised by the Hadley administration has been put into ef fect. This is the change in the con vict garb from the coarse striped clothing to uniform suits of an unof fending color and of ordinary civilian cut. In accordance with the teachings of the best prison discipline the stripes denoting degradation, are to be reserved as a mark of punishment within the penitentiary." Stamping Out the Dens of Vice. From the Chicago Record Herald. "Not only are you to stop the sale of intoxicants in resorts which have no city license, but under no circum stances are you to permit the sale of liquors in saloons, concert halls or disorderly cafes where women are per imitted to congregate." Such are the orders of Chief Steward to the inspec tors, and their vigorous enforcement will rid the city of many a plague spot. We have spoken already of the value of the campaign that is to be di rected against the resorts that sell liquor without a license. The saloons, concert halls and disorderly cafes re ferred to are now arraigned with them and their influence is of the most de moralizing kind. They are the abodes of vice, are part of the vicious system to which the resorts belong, and ex ercise a most malign influence, espec ially over the young. They advertise themselves as amusement places, at tract their victims by the hundred and act as schools of indecency. The South Pole Derby. From the Chicago Inter Ocean. The world will watch the coming race between the American and Eng lish antarctic expeditions to be first at the south pole with something of the breathless Interest that a hushed grandstand might take in the neck- and-neck duel down the homestretch .of two mighty thoroughbred horses in isome great contest of the turf. In all history the rivalry of the nations in exploration never yet has shown itself in a contest that so nearly fulfills all , the conditions of a genuine race. Vardaman. From the Boston Transcript.

"Inequitable government," said Herbert Spencer, "can be upheld only by .e aid of a people correspondingly inequitable, in its sentiments an J acts. Injustice cannot reign if the community does not furnish a due sup ply cf unjust agents." That is worth thinking about, but there is more to be said. In the years of the awakening to the true situation of American gov ernment whether in village or the halls of Congress, the people have been trying to find a way out. It is interesting that the same years which have been spent in the awakening have seen the rise of a new force in Ameri can government. Fimply put, It means a step beyond the election ol public servants by the people. It is the control of the public servants after they are elected. Sorry experience has shown that against the desires of the people, men apparently bonect, before election, have be-n so exposed to temptation that they thereafter neglect the people's interests. It is not enough to elect representatives of the peoiiR by the people. They must be made to feel their responFibility to the voters who put them there. Let us see the way out gradually opening before thi eyes of the Amer ican people. Here are signs of the times. Of towns and cities we read: "Yankton, S. D., is the latest city to adopt commission government the third in South Dakota and the sixty-third in the country to abolish the old ward system. The vote in Yankton was three to one in favor of the new rule, and that result was not to be unexpected with the example of Sioux Falls for guidance. "In every city in the country the commission plan has operated with such marked success that the neighboring cit ies municipal competitors have been forced by public sen timent to follow the example. Good government affords an advantage that cities with bad government cannot hope to overcome. When commission government rebuilt Galveston, Houston was forced to adopt it in order to compete with Gal veston, and from Houston it spread to every important city in Texas. "When Leavenworth adopted the new rule that city was in a deplorable condition. But within a year there was a new Leavenworth. Instead of showing a loss in population, as had been customary during the past few years, Leaven worth showed a gain second only to Wichita among the cities of Kansas. From Leavenworth the new rule is spreading to every live, up-to-date town in the state." Kansas City Star. What is this we hear down in Maryland? Here is a constitutional amendment being considered to give the people the right to reject laws which they do not want! Oregon has it already. ' Listen. , "Speaking before the committee on constitutional amend ments for the Maryland House of Delegates, which has un der consideration an amendment to the state constitution pro viding for the initiative and referendum, George E. Chamber lain, the Oregon Democratic senator elected by Republicans, and Robert Owen, Oklahoma senator, today assailed the pres ent system of boss rule and the resulting protection of cor porate Interests. "Senator Owen referred to the plan as the best possible safeguard of human liberty against commercialism. 'Ore gon established it,' he said, 'that selfish interests and dis honest men might no longer control the state. It means only that the people are sovereign and that they may frame their own statutes. It has happened in the past that the people have had laws foisted uptm them that they did not want. The people have the moral right and should be given the legal right to make the laws they live under. The time for crooked government to cease has arrived. I have never been able to see why it is that Legislatures fear the people on this plan, when they themselves must be elected by the people.' "He thought the first step toward the purification of poli tics was through the initiative and referendum and said that Oregon's experience had been that it removed outside evil influences from politics. "Senator Chamberlain said he could not understand the position of the Legislatures which opposed the initiative and referendum, as they practically said to the voters: 'You have intelligence enough to vote for me, but you have not the in telligence to vote for the laws you want.' " The idea is rapidly spreading that the people the voters, should not be content with electing men to office to see them turn from them to the great forces of unscrupulous capital commonly called the Interests. They are finding the way out. progress among us," said the gloomy philosopher. "Yes," answered the busy man, "and the worst is the person who in sists on running a revolving storm door the wrong way." Difficult Choice. "Which do you prefer," said the idle conversationalist, "life in the country or In the city?" "I'm not sure," answered Miss Cay enne. "It depends on whether I am in a mood to be attacked by a cow or a trolley car." A Perplexing Pfiblication. "Dat cook book means all right," said Miss Miami Brown, reflectively, "but I bet it gits me into trouble yet." "What's the trouble?" " 'Bout every page it say 'taxe six eggs.'

Louisville, March .-At a meeting of the priests of the diocese of Louis ville which was held at St. Francis! hall, in the cathedral, some of the ' plans for the enthronement of Bishop O Donaghue, March :Ji, were worked ! out and others were left to an execu- ive committee of seven members, who will he named by the Rev. Father James P. Cronin, administrator of the diocese since the death of Bishop Mc-Closkey. Bishop O'Donaghue will come to Louisville March ao. and his enthrone ment will follow immediately on his arrival at the cathedral. An escort omraittee of twenty-five members. which will be appointed by Father Cronin will go to Indianapolis on a special train and will escort the bish op to Louisville. A banquet in honor of the rew bishop will be given by the niests of the Louisville diocese. Father Cronin Consults Bishop. After the meeting had been called to order Father Cronin said he had gone to Indianapolis last Thursday and spent several hours in conference with Bishop O'Donaghue relative to his wishes about the enthronement. "Bishop O'Donaghue told me that if it were all left to him he would be glad to get aboard the interurban car in Indianapolis and get off at the Third street depot without any ceremony whatever, but knowing that we want to do h'in honor, it would please him if twenty or twenty-five priests from Louisville would go to Indianapolis and escort him to Louisville. Father Cronin went on to say that he had taken it upon himself person ally to give an order for a pontifical outfit which would cost about ?1,n. He told the priests assembled they would have to pay for it, and they agreed heartily. In fixing the date for the enthrone ment. Father Cronin said that Bishop O'Donaghue had designated March SO or 31. Father Cronin said he was in favor of March 30, which falls on Wed nesday, as this will allow the visiting priests time "to attend the enthrone ment exercises and get back to their homes by Friday. Ancient and Modern Conveyances Father Schubmann created some merriment during the discussion as to whether the escort committee should go in a pullman or an interurban train. He reminded the priests that the an cient laws of the Roman Catholic church provided that a horse or an ass should be sent for a new bishop, but that nothing is to be found anywhere that would help the body differentiate with regard to steam or electric cars. Fathe Cronin said that a number of priests from Indianapolis will accom pany the bishop to this city and that he will be presented with a purse on his departure. "WHY BE SO THIN?"

It felt as though there was a heavy weight on the top of my head, until it seemed that my brain would burst. I was so nervous that 1 could not rest or sleep.
