Shields of I h Minhton, in a statement ib'fendin" the work of tlicVuniniisfinii, calls att.ntiori to the fact that two thirds of the- work of the board in col lecting data to determine the value of the property in 1 1 state was done while Representative (lee. rue- Ird of Ivtrolt was the e-om ru issWn'H secre t.'.ry. Vt Mr. Leinl now seeks to make the 1'iKiiriH of the commission look rl-i!i-uloiis, just because Wayne county has beill Kiven a big boost. Mr. IV'rd, ai onling to Mr. Shie lds, did not have any complaints to make as to the method tf the board while he- was sec retary, bu of course be didn't know at that time he Would In- chosen to re p resent Wayne. Mr. Shields declares that the- same method of fixing values was employed In e very county In the state, regardless of lute-rests or indi viduals, and he Jalleves the' commis sion's figures will be endorsed by the state board of equalization. If it i:s nec essary he- will no ti Imsing to de fend in person the' work of I In- com mission. Mr. Shield's assertion that his board has endeavored to be fair to all counties seen to be supported by facts which those opposing the com mission's work will find difficult to set aside- CONGRESS FOR TAFT. Tin- result of th. latest poll by the ChlciKo Tribune will excite only a lan guid interest, it being simply confirma tory of a fore-goni- conclusion. The pedl as to the congressional republican hoii e- for 'residential nominee shows Taf first and the rest practically no v' -re. it the party would put such a slv. 1 t on such a preside nt as Taft s to iif iif him the customary honor of r no .u. iicn for a soe-ond te rm was a preposterous supposition in the 'lrst pl.u e-. N'e,r fas! le from the consideration of Mr. Taft el ir am splendidly earned title: to the- c niary lionr) ce.uld the party stullfy j . .se lf ami Invite- defeat by a ceiurse tantamount to dce-laratln ol Its own administrative failure-. The only cloud on Mr. Taffs national convention prospects was the party schism of insurgency ami the malig nant animus and reckless ambition of certain insurgent leaders. Cut Insurge ncy, as an antl-Taft nd venture aiiel machination, went visibly on the rocks In the special session. That is a universally seen and well night universally admitted political fact. Mr. Jji IVllette must put hi presi dential aspiration In cold steerage until 1'JIC. It would he well for his prospects ami popularity If he were to accept the situation with as good grace as It Is In his acrid nature to assume. To con- t'nue his now wildly hi-pe-Jos attempt to d:i Ute Taft tn ISIt would simply" mean overwhelming dlscoin'lture in the convention, and incur the general ridicule that is proverbially fatal to an American public man. The broad moral of the spivlul ses sion is that Mr. Taft will surely be re nominated and prolmbly re-elected. DEVELOPMENT OF ALASKA. The truth al-out Al-oka Is that its mineral wealth is a trust of the eiov ernment for the whole people. The estreme cons-rvationlsf lilea of such a trust is somcthiiv to ve Totke-el up until an ideal plan is devised for its use. The ultra-censeTvatlen idea is as useless as the motioio!y idea Is mis chievous. The one holds Alaska's wealth away from the people Indefi nitely. The other throws it away now. What is needed is a plan for the Im mediate development and exploitation of Alaska's mineral wealth for the benefit of the pe-'ph not the people living in Alaska ab-ne. not the people who live on the Pacific coast alone, but the people of the whole country. It must be a plan that prevents capital from monopolliKi; the- coal deposits, for instance, as capital has succeeded in monopolizing the anthracite deposit- if IYnns lvania. on the othr hai 1, unless the go rnment itself no de Makes the work, it must be a plan that offers fi.lr rewards to capital. Otherwise capital will not enter Alaska and mine e-oal. The American plan Is to enlist pri vate capital in railroad building and t regulate the operation of the roads built in such a way as to assure fair rates and eua! treatment to all. We have b en half a century workinc out that plan, and there is Mill much b be don-. Hut wo have the principle and the foundation. It will be an easy matter, if Congress attacks the prob lem on the richt lines, to secure thn building of development railroads in Alaska under such regulatory provi sions as to pre-ve-nt the recurrence of such conditions as have permitted the railroads to monopolize the anthracite coal business. Similarly the development of coal and copper mines, which the bu'lding of railroads must pre-eede-, can be so arrange-. l as to conserve the peoph-'s lights and yet offer a profitable field ,for in stiur nt.

Of courso the TK0UDLK is that tho AVERAGE girl of today, and moro particularly tho girl who needs it yiost, docs not get tho RIGHT IvIXD of homo training. Tho next lest thing, then, naturally, is tho college course. But again the trouhio with that is that the girl who NEEDS IT MOST is unablo to obtain it. What time has our great army of shop girls and factory girls and oflleo workers to tako up a courso in eco nomies to make better homemakers of them? Yet theo arc tho girls who REALLY NEED tho knowledge, and these are tho girls to whom it is NOT GIVEN in their own homes. Tho only real help that tho collogo courso might bo would bo developed if tho women who took it were subsequently to go out into tho homes of tho women UNA RLE TO OBTAIN IT and pass on to them their knowledge.

He was paid off last Saturday and had Just forty thdlars in his poe ket whe n he struck town and ii Sunday evening de-cided to treat himself to a first class supper. In making payment he says he peeled off a ten dollar bill, nt the same time dis playing his roll which apparently must have excited the cupidity of the wait ress, for Mularl claims that shortly afterwards he began to lose conscious ness. When he came to his senses he says he found himself speeding along the Itipley road towards Dollar Ttay In nn nutonmbile, with the waitress and the young men as companions. He begged his captors not to hurt him and the y stopped the machine and dewslt- ed him by the roadside.
