Tho Ohio Stato Journal, wboso old
fashioned editor still foolishly believes
that what this country needs is legis
lation arid more legislation, wants a
"small, compact general assembly,
practically continually in session and
composed of but ono body." Now,
Heaven forefendl Wo havo legis
lative indigestion now. Think of eat
ing a quail u day for 80 days, and
then think of a legislature in con
tinuous session 1 And only a single
body! Never! Wo need one cham
ber in which to bury tho mistakes of
tho other, ono to which tho other can
commit for execution those measures
it feels compelled to pass, but knows
should bo killed. Really it would be
well if ono chamber held its sessions
nt Cincinnati and tho other at Cleve
land neutral territory being secured
in each city and properly policed
in order that thero should be an ap
preciable delay in transmission be
tween the two branches. What we
want is less law and more law obe
dience, fewer laws and better law en
forcement, less government and better
officers, less theory and more common
sense, which is tho most uncommon
sense. Ohio Star.
A woman who claimed to bo a vice
crusader from another city was caught
in a raid made upon a restaurant where
a cabaret show was in progress in
Chicago a few days ago and was com
pelled to give testimony before a vice
commission. Sho says she saw dan-
ces thai were bad and listened to
songs that were vile, and said she
would not like to have her daughter
see and hear them for fear of the bad
offeet it might havo upon tho girl.
We are indeed sorry for this mother
who testified that she has raised a
daughter whom she dare not trust to
sei anything vile for fear the child
will embrace it. We are very much
inclined to believe that this mother
could have spent her time more
profitably in strengthing her daugh
ters character and instilling in that
daughter a purity of mind and soul
that would have been her erreatest
safeguard against the ovils this
mother feared her daughter might
Thero are two classes of people in
tho world, the "Do Somethings" and
tho "Do Nothings." The former are
of vast importance to tho world while
the latter are as barnacles, dead
weight, cumberers of tho ground.
The "Do Somethings" aro tho men
who rear empires, build cities, build
railroads, subdue mountains and keep
the golden chariot of Progress con
tinually on tho move upward. The
"Do Nothings" sit on the fence and
say "You can't do it. 'There's no use
trying. We are doing well enough."
Tho line of separation is being drawn
in Perrysburg, and every citizen
should declare himself and let his
neighbor know to which class ho be
longs. An Ohio Legislator recently intro
duced a bill to regulate tho wearing
apparel worn by women in puplic,
and now a woman in Philadelphia is
waging war against tho display in
shop windows of women's lingerie.
The Ohio Legislator thinks tho outer
apparel is conducivo to looso morals
and tho Philadelphia women thinks
tho looking at women's underwear as
displayed in the shop widows is con
ducivo to inpure thoughts. If a few
more idiots insist on regulating
women and their wearing apparel,
there won't bo much fun in being a
woman anymore. ,
But ono hope soothes and sustains
Congress in this trying hour, that
about the time it tackles tariff revision
tho public will be so interested 'in
baseball that it will not watch the
revision closely.
