If the members of the house of representatives do not care to listen to each other debate the tariff bill, why should they fill the Congres sional Record with speeches? Their constituents do not care anything for their "hot air" but they would like to have an early vote on the question. Reports indicate that scarcely a baker's dozen are present to listen to the debates. It seems rather strange that an electorate of 20,000 voters should permit less than 200 vote to expend $400,000, but that is what occurred in Spokane the other day. - Of course, this was a school election and the average voter is not supposed to concern himself with anything pertaining to school affairs. What occurred in Spokane occurs in other cities. A candidate for membership on the board of education usually receives about one-tenth as many votes as the candidate for dog catcher. And all this because there is no salary attached to the office. If the salaries were taken away from all elective offices, about one per cent of the voters would be all that would be required to go through the forms of representative government. WOMAN AND THE BALLOT. Woman's fight for the right to vote grows in intensity, not only in the United States, but also throughout the civilized world. The move ment thrives on ridicule and waxes strong on opposition and criticism. Advocates of woman suffrage will soon present to congress a petition bearing a million or more names. In a number of state legislatures this winter the usual bills granting women the right to vote received majority votes, and in practically every instance the propaganda showed increased strength, not only with the legislators, but also among the advocates of suffrage. It, is no longer a radical reform demnaded by long-haired men and short-haired women alone; it has become re spectable." and has lost much of the hysterical sentimentalism of a decade or more ago. Woman suffrage no longer pleads; it demands with militant aggression, and it slowly but surely is getting what it wants, or, to be more exact, what it thinks it wants. The struggle of women for the ballot is simply one phase of the profound change wihch has taken place in woman's relations to so cietv, in its broad sense, during the century past. It is concomitant with woman's invasion of the industrial field, and it is a logical result of the revolution which in the closing days of the centur\ in America and France swept the medievalism into the historical dust heap. It is a historical necessity that the great democratic movement for liberty and equalitv unleashed in those momentous days shoii d complete itself in the liberation of women from medieval conditions and the readjustment of their status in a democratic and mdustria societv. The' long and painful struggle for equality before the law has been practically won. Even the much-deplored increase in divorce is a victory for woman, for it is the extreme protest against the medi i-val conception embalmed in ancient law that thn wife is simply the property of her husband. The significance of this revolution is voiced bv the literature of the century past, and particularly in the problem play, the popularity of which shows how deeply the question has en tered into the public consciousness. Woman's demand for the ballot is part and parcel of this profound cJiange in her relation to modern industrial society. It is somewhat odd that it should materialize at a time when the tendency is toward restriction of the ballot for men. Manhood suffrage a century ago was the panacea proposed for all political ills. Time has shown itbrings evils as well as benefits. Yet the feminine propaganda is following the old blazed trail and the old ideals. Woman is on her way—some what blindly and toward an indefinite goal. Still, if she does not know where she is going, nevertheless she is on her way.

Repeated efforts made by a seedy looking individual a short time ago to "touch" a well known actor, play ing at one of the Broad street houses, recalled a lot of stories of how vari ous actors have come to grief and how they appealed for assistance. Some stories were serious, some funny, and among the latter was a yarn concerning Jack Barrymore and his uncle, John Drew. It was a good deal like adding insult to injury, but Jack got the money, anyway. He was returning from a tour of Australia and stopped in San Fran cisco just in time to meet the earth quake. Jack lost everything but his clothes, and just as soon as h% could get to a place where he could write a letter he directed one to John Drew, making it rather strong. "Dear uncle," he wrote, "I am up against it in this fair city, and any thing you can send me will be great ly appreciated. I was asleep when the earthquake arrived, and -was thrown clear across the room into a bathtub filled with water. The shock aroused me, and, after dodging a few falling walls, I managed to reach the street, still clad in my pajamas. When I reached the street I was met by two soldiers, who immediate ly put me to work clearing the de bris. You can see that I am up against it, and I shall await an early reply." When Barrvmore received his uncle's reply he found it to be both short and sweet. It ran as follows: "Dear Jack: I always knew it would take an unnatural convulsion of the earth to make you take a bath, and I was also sure that it would take tho United States army to put you jto work." But the letter contained | a money order. —Philadelphia Times. Coming Down Easy.

" 'Tis a big story you've heard," said Mr. Dolan, in his cheerful roar. "Thrue, he fell off'n the roof o' the Brady stables, wher he was shingl ing, and he broke his lift leg, knock- Jed otlt a couple o' teeth and broke | his collarbone. "Mind ye, if he'd have fell clear to the ground it might have hurted him bad, but sure there was a big pile of shtones and old lumber that broke his fall. —Youth's Compan ion.

Spokane, March 31.—Indians of Nez Perce tribe, which, under the leadership of Chief Joseph, led Gen erals Howard and Miles such merry chases almost a third of a century ago, are organizing a company to es tablish a bank at Fort Lapwai, Ida ho, southeast of Spokane, in which the chief business will be with red men, who are to receive approxi mately $150,000 from the federal government this year as interst and moneys due them on the sale of theh lands.
