THE MAYOR'S RESIGNATION More than 85,000 small flags have been purchased by the war department to serve for the decoration of the individual graves of American soldiers who lie buried in Europe. In addition, 80 flags of large size, and 350 lesser ones have been ordered for the various cemeteries for these American dead. It is announced that these flags will be forwarded to Europe for display beginning next Memorial Day. The graves of the soldiers in France and elsewhere in Europe are rapidly being marked and decorated and the cemeteries are being brought to a high state of perfection. The war department still has a large force of nun in France beautifying the graves of soldiers. PHILOSOPHIES BY HERBERT HOOVER The resignation of George Gillson as president of the board of trustees of Carson City will be generally regretted. He has made a splendid officer and in the face of obstacles that have at times seem ed almost insurmountable he and the other members of his board have given valuable aid to many of the movements that have taken place in the past few years and helped put this city in the front ranks of progressivism. His task in a way has been a thankless one, for no pay, except for a short period, has attached to the office which he has held and often it has put a heavy expense on the occupant, but with a spirit that must attract admiration Mr. Gillson has given both of his time and money to the carrying out of projected and lasting enterprises. As head of the city government he will be missed. TO BE LEGISLATED OUT OF OFFICE The following telegram from Washington carries the informa tion of the abolishing of a number of Federal offices, among which is the office of surveyor general in this state: Abolishment of the nine subtreasuries, the offices of thirteen state surveyor generals and two assay offices is proposed in the leg islative appropriation bill, reported by the house appropriation com mittce. A reduction of $18,000,000 from department estimates for clerk hire and miscellaneous expenses was made, but the bill's total of $104,120,000 is one of the largest peace time legislative appropria tions on record. Several unusual items, including $42,038,000 for the internal rev enne bureau for collecting taxes and enforcing national prohibition; $11,324,000 for the war risk insurance bureau and $3,000,000 for the decennial census largely account tor the high total. The subtreasuries which would be abolished at the end of this year are at Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Cincinnati Chicago, St. Louis, New Orleans and San Francisco. The surveyor crenerals to be discarded on June 30th next, would include those in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and Alaska. The assay office at Deadwood S. D., and Salt Lake City would be closed on June 30th. Reductions made by the committee are general throughout the government service and include some self-imposed economies on the part of congress, there being cuts aggregating $400,000 in the amount spent by congress for miscellaneous services, including employes. PENROSE ON THE JOB Most of the world is engrossed in a talk-fest over social reform, in strikes, lockouts, desire for holidays, and so forth, and is not mak ing any great effort to get back into production. . ' As a consequence of war profits from speculation, of easy raonev. and of high wages in some industries, there has been widespread and wilful extravagance among some sections of the community. The result of expenditures on non-essential commodities is to divert labor and production from essentials, .and thus further to in crease the cost of living. The entire world must go to work, and stop talking about economic patent medicines that look like a perpetual holiday. NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION TIME APPOINTED FOR PROVING WILL, ETC.

G. Meyers Senator Penrose has so far improved, it is announced, that he can now devote some of his time and his attention to the affairs of the Republican party, the congressional contingent of which he "bosses" when physically tit. Even those who dissent from Senator Penrose's political creed and dislike his .methods will be glad to learn of his better health. The Republican party in congress is sadly in need of "bossing" even if it be of the Penrose brand. Chairman Hays has attempted to spur the hybrid majorities in the senate and the house of repre sentatives to vary the monotony of "passing the buck"-by passing a bill occasionally, but every Republican congressman knows that Mr. Havs w a mere underling who takes his orders, from Mr. Pen rose and those of Mr. Penrose's coterie.' No heed Was paid to Mr. Hays. If Mr. Penrose is now able to watch congress and issue direct commands, the Republican leaders who have been helpless without his guidance, may be expected to show some activity. This prob ably won't be for the good of the country, but it will be a departure from the listlessness that has characterized the first two months of the regular session during Senator Penrose's absence. Republicans have always desired and always needed a "boss." They have always had one. They-move fastest if not most surely , when they are driven.. If Mr. Penrose can get action from congress it will be more than the public has been able to do. .. oo ....... LODGEWITH RESERVATIONS Senator,Lodge's with "reservations." "program" is received by Republican senators The "irreconcilables" are willing enough to accept all that Mr Lodge proposes in the way of ratifying the treaty of peace, always provided that this procedure is certain to nullify it. They want a kind of ratification that will mean repudiation. The "mild reservationists" pretend to seek ratification with qualifications less destructive than those Mr. Lodge has concocted and less objectionable than those demanded by the "irreconcilables." If Mr. Lodge seems to make concessions to the "irreeoncikfbles" he alienates the "mild" but firm reservationists in the senate major ity. If he yields to the latter, the outright obstructionists threaten revolt and defection, .Both these groups make their demands in the name of Republicanism and Mr. Lodge surrenders first to one and then to the other in the same sacred name. It is a fine little game for Mr. Lodge. With neither the doubtful friends nor the known foes of. the treaty willing to let mm proceed to compromise ana consum mation, the putative leader of the Republican senate can move in neither direction and must stand still which is exactly what Mr. Lodge desires. He is quite ready to make chessmen of "mild reser vationists and "wild" reservationists and downright defeatists, and then play them to the conclusion he wishes most of all to see a stale mate that leaves the treaty lifeless. ONCE OVERS" It is a wonderful thing to start housekeeping in a new house, new furniture, new neighborhood. , . There are no. regrets behind you, only a keen sense of looking forward. . " How hard you all try. to keep the first scratch off the new piano or the front stairs. Every morning you got up with high hopes, and great plans for a new day. ; . Every evening you are gloriously tired, but happy in accomplish ment. Just as long as you can stay united on the same ambition to keep a happy home it will be a joyous realization. But let one or the other member of the family show the "don't care" spirit or jealously of the better things some one else has, and just then there is bound to be a wedge winch will end in regrets. jjon i oe so seu-sausueu uwi juu rnuuoi sec improvements as you need them. Don't be so selfish that you cannot cheerfully do more than vour share toward the family good at any time. ' Don't be so ungrateful or unmindful that you can allow anv one of the family to have to keep up extra work to save you, 'when it becomes possible for you to take care of your duties again.
