It moves so surely and with such fitness that it puts all mortal efforts to shame. THE MAYOR AND THE PARK BOARD. The threat hein handed out by "friends of the mayor," that he will remove the members of the park hoard which means the replacing of them with certain of his henchmen after the manner that hfs administration has been otherwise organized, la case that board attempts to stand further upon ft rights as a lejral ntity. supposedly independent of political influences, comes with ill Krace just at this time. The park board is about the only white spot on the whole of our city government. Xo one doubts loii that it is striving to serve the city, as it should be sertd, honestly and conscientiously, this reardley of whether you approve of its wisdom or .mdnment or not. It i rieht in its refusal to permit th opening; of I'alvert st.. across Studebakor park; t i:ht in principle, and within its rights under the !a but of course, that amounts to little with an administration the chief ovC upation of which lias b-n to scorn the law and tre.it it as a dead-letter. N"o one has heard of the mayor, or "friends of the mayor" handing out threats to remoo the board of public safety b which the law has been notoriously a thinir to be lauuhed at: neither t re ;uoe the board of safety, nor its antlic chief of police. ( n the eontrary they deii, evade and pro.-ti- Mte the law, say nothing of their triiaicry in the evaporation of whiskies, protection to vi''e. and limitations placed ui";: the duties of o!'ic rs to ser. Adopting a policy of nepotism. they re- ntl appointed a mhi of the i i;y attorney a oliee m.in. and then detaih d hmi to the city controller's tiici as a bookkeep. r. Xothitv wronu' about this, we- suppose, in the estimation of the mayor, and his "friends." We presume this yow:i-r man was made i Jerk for the eontrolbr, after the common council had refused to finance such nn appointment, this by way of the police department, so that he could b under direction of the chief of police, and not allowed to leave his po-t to arrrt anjoiic, or tal'". with prosecutinc ot!icei. without the chief's con sent. Of eourre, the mavr nt to be exported to in terfere, much less remove, a board so s rviceablo in the carrying ut of the administration's political chicanery. With the board of park commissioners It is different. They .ue tryimr to serve thi city, rather than the adniim.-trat ion in the upbuilding of a Calvert st. political machine. There is no neces sity for cutting Studebaker park in two with Cal vert st. save to pive the people thereon, west of the park, an easier approach to the lbwm in ceme tery, and If there i to : e any cut at all. it should be at IVowman st., instead. It would reduce the Icnuth of the bridire necessary to be built, "o p. r cer.t. and divide the park at a much more con on lent anple. thoiiirli It should not be divided at all. Mayor Carson talk 1 loud and bu.c Mond iy nis,-ht about ur.necess.iry expenditure of money, and service to the bus!ns ir.t' rets of the city, instead of the pleasure Interests. When it comes t' the ex tension of Calw rt st.. acres- Stud baker park, with his fax or, h's talk ef Monday ni-ht beeom.es the silliest of camouf.ae. to thin to d--o ive u:io:ie. 1ei(h s. the pleasure int, rests of the . ity. ar tli; business intf rents', if the n ..ior will but come out of his antiquated sl:e!l ami mo jerni.e lilrastdf a little on such, matters, our anticipated rrowth calls tin much for p;:rk- and pbi -ground.-, swimmitnc pool?, and recreational opja rtuniti -'. as it do for ho us th. TMO-t. Ii.-!'!- :i prt the housing p-roram. a fact that has been insisted pcn t' wjde-aw .tke ik opl cn r. tt -d w ith the hoasintr movement, juit- as emphatically as have ho Jsey thf ms lv . The troubb-, we fear, with the city administra tion in wanting1 to keep the clamps on the park board is that uch administration .hasn't Its hand on th' park hoard" pocketbook, and the board if not kept within discipline, J likely to do Orni thine: that will b of public rather than of political advantage. !f It would but follow the course of tho board of satrty, and even In degree, the board of work, its fin- f-tanding might be different. It could be as rot; en a.s It pleaded then, with perfect safety, and th rottenrr, it seems, the safer. Perhaps then, the park commissioners could have them selvfs appointed policemen, and get a policeman's salary. Instead of working for- nothinc. having th chief detail theni back to their present Jobs of course, within the rule that they niu-t talk to no one Five him, and not leave their "political" beats without his permit. A CHILDREN'S APARTMENT HOUSE. Kverybody knows that an apartment house ia not an id a! place in which to raise children. This is even more true from the standpoint of the happy, free and healthy development of the children than it Is from that of other families in the same build- ing. Of course, th" "own your own home" move ment progressing in South P.end and various other localities, offer a much better plan for the housing of arrowing youngsters, but they do not at once solve the whole problem. So lonu as there are not cnoiifrh individual houses to go around, and so long as transportation facili ties between the bit? industrial centers and their surrounding suburban communities remain so im perfect, it will be necessary for many families with children to live within crowded cities. That mean that they must frequently live in apartment houses; and that is why the growing tendency of landlords to forbid children in flats presents such a serious Problem. In Petroit, ns part of its world reconstruction plan, one big church organization proposes to open a $;oo,0o apartment building exclusively for fam ilies with children. The building is to have a well equinped playground on the roof. Presumably its walls and lloors will be made as nearly sound-pro-" as modern apartment house construction permits. This is a line piece of practical philanthropy which might well be copied by civic groups wherever there is such a need. EASY PREY TO DRUGS. The government, as a result of recent investiga tions concerning the use of narcotic drugs, reports that native-born Americans possess less self-control in th- use of these poisons than do the foreign ers in this country, and that except among those races with whom the use of opium and hashish is a national habit, the use of drugs is more widespread here than anywhere else in the world. This warning should strike home to American hearts, whose very lightness makes them the more easily subject to this destroying habit. In the course of its report the government makes piain the great langer in narcotic medicines for the alleviation ,of pair:, and re-iterates the oft-rc peated warning to physicians and patients as to their use. With our national weakness brought home to us in these unflattering terms, it becomes more than ever our duty to obtain a wider understanding of the langer and harm that lie in the use of the drugs, and to exert our influence singly and collectively to aid in checking it. A JOB FOR CONGRESS. Tlie proof of the pudding Is in"the eating, and touj soldiers have already signified their eagerness to rat alive the farms provided for them in Sec'y Lane's plan. Th' bill proposing the appropriation for these farms, as is well remembered was one of tho.-e shdved in tho hurried days of the last congressional session. It was felt by many people at th' time that this was one of tho measures most necessary to pass; but take it all in all. it was not a bad thing. Sec'y Lane has had time to rewrite his proposal, elaborat ing and completing it, and the new bill will he better than th' old. There will bo, too, a better understand ing of the plan by people in general, and the incon trovertible testimony of thousands of soldiers in its f.'vor cannot be disregarded. Should the bill become a law instead of merely a prospect, the numbers desiring to avail themselves? of it would increase greatly. When the new congress convene--, lore is a bit of lonstructive legislation all ready to begin on. Of course the peace conference has been a long time about it. Put how many of its critics could write in less time a T.'.ÖOO word treaty to the satis faction of a score of nations, when all the while "stones ware clattering on the roof and wild nun sciaaming through the keyhole?" Anjhow, the allies did one tiling to make the indemnity easy for the C.ermans. A hundred billion marks is a cinch for any dummkopf to remember, and there wn't be any trouble about computing tlie interest. With the war ended and the peace term- beided. what in th" world will we haw? left to tight about? Other Editors Than Ours IT WOI LI) HAKIUiV DO. (Iral"si International Wit-UIj.) Once more there is icing heard discussion of that old question which so often has been raised in various state 1, gislatures. only to be talked to death in a few days and then forgotten for another lit cad' or so. It is th' fever to make tw o states .row whtr- only one has ben geographically known I". fore. . . The I itest case comes before th"4 state assembly in Albany. Somelody thinks New York should be divided into two states. Of course it will not be. It will not b" any more than Texas will be split up into several states, as has been often stirgected. Then there has b.,n aio the idea that the north ern part of Michigan, above th' Straits of Mackina', should b separated from the rst of the state and matle into a distinct commonwealth. The same no tion has had Us inning in California, on more than one occasion, but it has always died early. Still it might be fasib;o in California; then the northern part coull retain the name California, whib the southern section could be named Cafeteria, after its rnot important product, barring orangts. However, one of the drawbacks to splitting up all these states Is that in each Instance it would m-an two more senators. The A bandoned Room A Mystery Story by WacU worth Camp. COXTIXCia.) SYNorsis.

All agree tLat ruyttery urrotiDda the deatb ef t'.e old man, wbo was onfe of many ftlackburas to die In tame manner, btracge ilgbs invariably mark the occa sion of a death in the room. As Hobby started to cross the din ing room he heard the silght .scrap ing of the door leading to the kit chen, lie knew there was someone in the room with him. He touched a cold hand. "Bobby!" Katherinc breathed in his ear. He understood why the little light from the hall had failed to disclose her when she had come from the kitchen. She wore the black cloak. Against the darkness at the end of the room he had made no silhou ette. When he put his arms around her and touched her cheek, he no ticed that that, too, was cold; and the shoulders of the cloak were damp as if she had just come in from the falling snow. "Where have you been?' he ask ed. "Looking outside," she answered frankly. "I couldn't sit still. I wondered if the woman in black would be around the house tonight. Then I was afraid, so I came in." Doctor Groom's voice reached them. "Have you found her? Is she in the dining room?" Without any thought of disloyalty Bobby recognized the menace of coincidence. "Take your cloak off," he whis pered. "Leave it here." "Why?" While he drew the cloak from her shoulders he raised his voice. "Carlos has been hurt. The doc tor asked me to lind you." His simple strategy was destroyed by the appearance of Rawlins. The detective- came directly to them; nor was the coincidence lost on him. and it was his business t: advertise rather than to conceal it. Without ceremony he took the cloak from Bobby. He draped it over his arm. "The doctor," he said to Kath erine. "wants a basin of warm wa ter, some old linen, carbolic acid, if you have it." She nodded and went back to the kitchen while Bobby returned with the detective to the hall. Paredes' eyes remained closed. "Where di1 you get the cloak, Itawliiis'."' Hohinson asked. "The young lady," Itawlins an swered with soft satisfaction, "just wore it in. At least it's still wet from the snow." Paredes opened his eyes. He looked for a moment at the black cloak. He eloped his eyes again. "Von could recognir.e the woman who attacked you?" Rawlins said. "You've forgotten how dark it is. Please don't ask me even to swear that it was a woman." "You've tr.ving to say it wasn't flesh and blood." Blackburn quaver ed. Paredes smiled weakly. ' I'm trying to say nothing at all." "Tell us each detail of the attack." Robinson said. But Katherir.e's footsteps reached them from the dining room and Pa redes wouldn't answer. I'nder those condition Robinson's failure to press the question was as disturbing as the detective's matter-of-fact cap ture of the. cloak. Paredes glanced at Katherine once. There was no softness in her atti tude as she knelt beside his chair. Neither. Bobby felt, was there the slightest uneasiness. With a facile grace she helped the doctor bathe and bandage the slight wound. "A silk handkerchief for a sling " the doctor suggested. "I won't, have a sling." Paredes said. "I wouldn't know what to do without the use of both my hands." "You ought to congratulate your self that you still keep it." the .lec tor grumbled. Bobby took the pan ar.d the bot tles from Katherine and rang for Jenkins. Tt was clear that Robin son had hoped the girl would go out with them herself and so give Paredes an opportunity to speak This new development made him wonder about draham's theories as to Paredes. If it was Maria who had struck the man therediad ' been a quarrel among thieves or else no criminal connection had ever existed between the two. Pa retics, however, aping the gestures of rr. invalid, was less to Bobby's taste than his satanic -appearance w h"n he !ad come from the private frta: r a se. Rawlins still held the cloak. Aft er Jenkins had r-;novd the doctor's paraphernalia. -?veryone sormod to wait. Tt was Silas BI ackbu: i. who tinaljy released the strain. "Katy. where you been with that cloak" What's he doing with it?" Without answering she took the cloak from Rawlins, rind gave the detective and th" district attorney the opportunity they craved. She walked up the stairs, turning at the landing. Her farewell seemed point ed at the Panamanian who looked languidly up at her. "If l'r.i wanted T shall be in pay room." "Wh" would w?nt yn-j. ICather ine?" Graham blurted out. Rut it was clear he caugYit the coincidence, too, and th- trouble lie had. con- fe?i-ed a little earlier was radically increased. "That remains to be seen." Rob inson sneered soon as she had gone, "i.'ow, Mr. Paredes." (Continued Tomorrow.) The Melting Pot COME!

Aunt Tabitha and Untie Hiram started, you know, for a Christmas visit to New York, and at Philadel phia Uncle Hiram got out to buy a newspaper and the train went off without him. But the railroad people were more than kind to Uncle Hiram in his predicament. They put him on an extra-rapid express, and he actually arrived in New York twenty minutes ahead of Aunt Tabitha. He stood at the exit in his black Sunday Bult, carpet bag in hand, when she came forth. "Here we are again, hey?" he said, clasping her waist jocosely. "I tell ye. Tabithy, gal. I thought I'd lost ye for good." But Aunt Tabitha had drawn herself up straight and stiff. She was frowning as black as a thundercloud. "You clear out, mister!" she hissed.
