At the last session congress voted $25,000 for the expense of a Bpecial commission to investigate railway con ditions and determine whether roads are overcapitalized and what use they have made of their money. The Railway World of Philadelphia says that for $250 it will furnish de tailed facts of every issue of railway capital put out in the United States for twenty years back. This is simply another instance of the needless waste of money in special commissions. *'". A $250,000 tariff commission is secur ing data which are already available. It will not contribute any new facts on the tariff question. In three years a special immigration commission has cost the taxpayers more than $650,000. The data in its five or six pamphlets could have been furnished by any immigration society in thirty days for not to exceed $5,000. The monetary commission is author ized to expend any amount it sees fit, and need not account for a dollar other than by a lump sum voucher, which must be acceptetlfanrf paid by the treas ury. It has been junketing all over Europe at public expense. And so it goes. Commissions for political ends, some to brace up G. O. P. props that have crooked slightly under the strain, some to hoodwink the people on matters of legislation, oth ers to palliate the administration's sins of omission, yet others merely to furn ish fat jobs for the faithful. And the public foots the bill. The appalling waste of tax money in this commission foolishness at Wash ington must be stopped. It will be stopped, when democratic congress men are strong enough to put an er.d to such outrageous robbery of the peo ple.—Chicago Journal. David Brant of the Iowa City Re publican, one of the strong standpat papers of the state, was asked how he liked the Republican state platform, and for reply he told the following story: An Irishman was served his firet dish of hash.

Tor Supervisor 1st District, -V'. Break Between Taft, Aldrich and Cannon Improbable. All reports to the effect that Taft is going to part company with Cannon and Aldrich should be taken with sev eral large grains of salt. Personally Taft and Aldrich may be commendable men, but in public life they Btand for a vicious system which places property rights above human hights, and graft ing privilege above honest business. Taft has cast his let with that system and has gone too far to turn back In his struggle for re-election he must stand or fall. with the system, and might just as well continue to recog nize Cannon and Aldrich as the sys tem's accredited representative?. Should he require the system to se lect new representatives the change would deceive no one, and Taft would exposs himself to the dharge of duplicity. Taft secured his nomination, if not his election, by posing as a progres sive. But long before the day on which he was elected, and quite unknown to the general public, Taft was safely in meshes of the system's net. The Bal lingers and Guggenheims and Wicker shams knew before the polls closed as well as they did after the inauguration who would control the Taft adminis tration. Taft is unnoubtedly begging to be relieved of Ballinger and Cannon and other men of that class, but what has the System to gain by throwing these men overboard? Can new agents be selected who will represent confeder ated and law defying wealth any bet ter than these old representatives? Will not the changes, if changes are made, encourage the progressives? Will they not all concludc to die to gether, as Cannon says, with their boots on?—Manchester Democrat. Mr. Porter, running on the demo cratic ticket for governor of the state, finds himself in a queer situation. The party has declared itself for local op tion with high license while he is prac tically a prohibitionist. It was his prohibition tendencies when he ran be fore that made the liquor districts cut him so strongly.—The Decorah Re publican which published the above ought to know that Senator Porterjis not now and never has been a prohibition ist. He is a temperance man just like Horace Boies but not a prohibitionist and republicans will gain nothing by misrepresenting him. The republican party of Iowa gave us prohibition but after it had been whipped twice it switched off to mulct and lias been carrying water on both shoulders but the people are becoming tired and want the question settled right.—Clayton County Democrat. What's This! The Payne-Aldrich law is not now bringing in sufficient revenue to run the government, reports from the Re publican press bureau to the contrary notwithstanding. Tht tariff law, the corporation tax, internal revenue re ceipts, and all other sources of reve nue combined, failed by $3,014,842.87 of producing sufficient funds to run the government during the first 15 days of August. SOME SPINSTER PROVERBS. Thus thinketh the spinster In her heart, and thus speaketh she out ot the fullness of her wisdom: There be three kinds of spinsters, yea, even four kinds by the fine logic of paradox. Some maids are born spinsters, some achieve splnsterhood and others have splnsterhood thrust upon them and some be old maids even through matrons and men. Let the spinster regard her state not as a misfortune but as an achieve ment neither let the woman of faint heart lightly undertake the obligations thereof, for deep and difficult are Its ways. Entitled neither to the Innocence of the maid1 nor to the wisdom of the matron, with dignity must she subdue cleverness and with wit enlighten prudence. To be frank without being forward, to be prudent without being a prude aye, there's the rub. Put not your trust In subtle eva sions, nor yet in strange names neither covet ye the tinkling title of bachelor girl, for a spinster by any other name would be as lonely—if she Is lonely. Marriage Is a mocker and courtship a delusion, and she who is deceived thereby is not wise for oft has the scoffer cried out in the market place: Old maids rush in where widows fear to tread. Blessed is the contented spinster, for great Is her reward in comfort— Life. SAYS THE BUSINESS WOMAN. Be helpful but not officious. Don't accept favors they entail ob ligations. Make yourself indispensable before making terms. Services that cost nothing are val jed at nothing. Be obliging, but don't allow your ielf to be used. Don't, have excuses.

Amusing Story of Cleroyman In Lon don Who Was Out for All the Cash He Could Get—Some of Acces sories He Would Furnish. London.—Some of the fashionable weddings that have taken place lately would seem to indicate that the people concerned were anxious to see how much money could be spent on the af fair. In England the ceremony is much more complicated. The most usual form of marriage Is by "banns." Notice Is given to the clergyman of the church where the young couple desire to get married, the announcement Is given out three Sundays running be fore the wedding day, and for this the .bridegroom pays the clerk 50 cents. If neither of the parties live In this par ish, one or other of them must do so for three weeks before the ceremony takes place, but this condition is often filled by the bridegroom taking a room and putting a stick or bag in it for the required time. Of course, you have to pay the cler gyman something for performing the ceremony for you, and the legal fee is $1.25, with 50 cents to the clerk, and a further 50 cents for a copy of the cer tificate of marriage, but each clergy man asks what he chooses, and some of them place their services rather high. Recently a young couple who live In the suburbs decided to get married at one of the churches in the Strand, in London,-as this was a convenient cen ter for all their friends, and also near Charing Cross station, from which they were starting for Paris immediately after the ceremony.' It was to be a quiet affair, no bridesmaids, no bou quets, no carriages, no red carpet, etc. So one fine morning the brides's father started oft to find the incumbent of one of these London churches, an In dividual with a double-barreled name and, incidentally, a double-barreled lo quacity as well. After a great effort the father got him to talk about the wedding, and finally inquired the fee. "The fee would be $25," said- his reverence. "And, of course, you would like some music? We supply that and it would be $5." The father was about to say something, when the padre broke in again: "And you would like some red carpet put down, 1 suppose? We supply that for $5." "Oh," began the man out of whose pocket the money was to come for all .this, when—" "And if It's a wet day, you would re quire an awning," continued the clergy man. "We supply the awning and the fee would he $5." "Yes," gasped the father, casting about in his mind for a way of escape, when the other went on: "And, of course, you would have some flowers. My daughter always does the flowers, and I'm sure she w'ould be delighted to do them for you." Before the astonished father could reply, the clergyman rang the bell and requested the servant who answered it to ask "Miss Louie" to step in." "Miss Louie" duly arrived, and expressed herself enchanted at the prospect of doing the flowers for the wedding. "And what do you think it would cost, dear?" asked her father. "Do you suppose you could do It for-. $25?" As this last straw was laid on the poor victim's back, he roused himself and managed to stammer that he must consult his daughter before making the final arrangements, and made for the door, trusting to escape. But the cler gyman had reserved a parting shot. Taking up a small paper-covered book from the table, he said: "This is a small book on the history of the church. I am sure your daugh ter will like to read all about it, as she is thinking of being married there." "Thank you I'll give it to her," said the innocent man. "That'll be 25 cents," said his rev erence, and the unfortunate father placed the money on the table and fled for his life. Needless to say the mar riage did not take place at his church. CATS SLAUGHTER GAME BIRDS Semi-Wild Animals Become Serious Menace in Oregon—Plan for Extermination. Marshfleld, Ore.—Calvin Wright, one of Coos county's game wardens, gives it as his opinion that the worst enemy of the game birds in this locality is the house cat which has become wild. Mr. Wright has just returned from an ex tensive trip up and down the coast country, and he declares that the cats are doing away with the game birds. Coos county is a great place for cats, both in the cities and the country districts, and they have increased with such rapidity that there are not homes sufficient for all of them. As a consequence the cats have become wild and run in the woods. Mr. Wright says that the increase of these semi wild animals in the woods is much greater than would be imagined. He says that the cats not only break up the nests and kill or drive away the old birds, hut that they devour scores of the young before they are able to protect themselves. So great has become the menace that Deputy Wright will take up the cat matter with State Game Warden Stephenson and will advocate the pay ing of a bounty for the killing of cats which are not properly confined.

Charlies Frederick Holder, the California naturalist, thus describes that remarkable fish the tuna: "The tuna is a pelaglo fish, a free lance, an ocean rover, a sort of swaggering musketeer of the sea, the largest of what may be termed the game or bony fishes, attaining a maximum weight of nearly 2,000 pounds and an approxi mate length of fourteen feet or more. Such a fish is very exceptional, though specimens weighing 1,500 pounds have ,been taken on the New England coast. I once entered a school in a big launch. The school divided to port and starboard as we passed through It, and I had a view of one or two fishes that appeared to be more than half as long aa the boat "These fishes spend the winter in warm latitudes, and migrate north as far as the mouth of the St. Lawrence. They are found in the Mediterranean, and north, to the LofToden island yet so far the efforts of anglers, ex cept at Santa Catallna, have failed to take them with the rod. Even here there la a stretch of but eight miles or so where they can be satisfactor ily played and taken with rod and reel. "This region lies on the north side pf Santa Catalina, from Avalon to Long Pointy and to the east as many more, facing the north, and generally smooth—more like a Scottish loch than a fishing ground 20 miles out to TAMENESS OF A SEA LION Old Ben, Weighing Half a Ton, Is Often Met on the Streets of Avalon. In describing the Islands lying off the southern coast of California Fredi erlck Holder writes: "The feature which will really amaze the wanderer among the Uhannel islands is the tameness of some animals. To meet a bull sea lion weighing approximate ly half a ton on the main avenue of a town, 60 feet from the water, is a pos sibility of a startling nature, yet I have seen Old, Ben, the head of the Santa Catalina sea lion rookery, on Crescent avenue, Avalon, surrounded by tourists who snapped their cam eras at him with impunity. "At that time Ben could he Induced to come ashore when the lure was a fat, long-flnned tuna, but one day he climbed upon the wharf, coming en tirely up the steps, following the man with a fish. Then some unreasonable person made a threatening demonstra tion Ben started for the step, lost his hold, slipped and fell, smashing them and wounding himself. For a long time he remwnbered this, but gradual ly his faith in human beings has re turned. "He is good-tempered and never at tempts to bite. But he is a savage looking animal, and when he comes leaping up on the boat landing, driving oft women and children by mere ferocity of appearance, and seizing their fish, as he did recently, he makes a very clever imitation of a. ferocious beast" •WSf: Rev. Father Guicheteau of the French Catholic Church of St. Vincent de Paul, on West Twenty-third street, New York, famed as "the priest astronomer," has his telescope di rected these nights at Mars, now very close to the earth. Every night he is up in the little observatory he has had installed on the roof of his parish house making both observations and calculations. His telescope is a very fine instrument, operated by clockwork to keep pace with the ap parent motion of the stars. "I am firmly convinced," he says, "that there Is life on Mars, and I am eagerly awaiting the report of the scientists all over the world, who are now making observations and photo graphs. I look for the most interest ing results from the observatory at Arequipa, Peru, wheer the exceeding ly clear atmosphere will be of the greatest aid in operating the great Bruce telescope there located. "Mars is now only 35,000,000 miles distant from the earth never -is it closer to us. From this time on the" two planets, the earth and Mars, get further away from each other from day to day. The rate of speed at which they separate is terrific. In a period of a little over seven years from now Mars will be 234,000,000 miles away from us. That is why astronomers are 'gathering hay now while Mars shines!'

Alaskan Report Declares Redskins of Far North Count Only by 8un and Moon and "8leeps"—Habits and Character of People. Washington.—"Leatherstocklng" Is verified and Pennlmore Cooper is vin dicated and their substantiation comes, as It should, through the census bureau. It is from faraway Alaska, but it is official. The substantiation is found In a re port from Chief Census Agent Mc Kenzle telling all about the taking of the census in the Fairbanks district. Mr. McKenzie gives assurance that the Indians do measure time by the "snows" and "suns" and distances by "sleeps." Indeed, he asserts that they have no other standards of time or measurement, and in relating the fact he cites an Instance which throws no little light on the difficulties of enu merating the red men. "Only the very young cnlldren, who have been educated in the govern ment schools," he says, "have any knowledge of their ages or blrthB, and the agents were instructed to use the age and birth months as nearly as could be. "Time with them is computed on suns and snows, and distances by sleeps. Marriages, separations, births and deaths are all based upon such calculations and we were obliged to base our Information in the same way." He then gives this instance: "An Indian buck claimed to have lived *200 snows.' After much talk and use of the sign language It was determined that be was about eighty years old. He was found to have been twenty snows old when he 'got his first woman to have kept her 'four .snows, when she got away' that he 'got more woman and keep her five snows and then she died that he 'got no woman for twenty snows more," and finally that he 'got young chicken ahd keep her all time ever Blnce, now on twenty-five or thirty snows."* Regarding the habits and character of the people, he says: "As si class they are Indolent, lazy and dirty, although in recent years "the teachers have taught the younger ones that dirt has been the cause of much, of their Illness and the pres ent generation is keeping themselves healthier by bathing. Their homes are filthy, as a rule, and conducive to the diseases with which the Indians are most afflicted." Temperature from.SO to 70 degrees below zero snow frjtn three to twen ty feet deep wind blowing a bliz zard most of the time no hum^n habitation in sight no covering at night except a tent, and no "grub" that was not many times frozen. These are some of the conditions under which the census was taken in the interior. The report covering the work In the fourth or inland district of the terri tory has Just been received by Di rector Durand, and while the story Is mers who have no faith in the theory of Mars' habitablllty, but it has been conclusively proved that life can be supported on Mars, and I personally have been of tie same opinion as my eminent friend, Camille Flammarlon, the great French astronomer—my countryman as well as my friend— that Mars is in many respects a world similar to our own, peopled by beings of a most intelligent order. There is every evidence of it in my mind. "The canals on Mars, first pointed out by the Italian Schiaparelli, are by no means hypothetical. They are too regular in formation to be anything other than the work of Intelligent minds and hands. They resemble a netting all over the face of the planet, „the main canalB extending from the poles to the equator. At certain points where a number of the canals con verge there is what Lowell and other astronomers now term 'oases.' These points of convergence are, I believe, big cities. "It is, of course, extremely Improb able that any telescope will ever be constructed so large and of such pow er that we will be able to actually de tect the flora or fauna of Mars or any other of the inhabited planets, if other such there be. Personally, I am loath to believe that Mars Is the only planet besides our own earth that is habit able. I think that in time to come we will study other planets that from ap parent conditions may possibly sup port life." "t.4 trfvlv- ir Ak simply told, it is a thrilling, narrative of adventure, showing that when Uncle Sam starts out to round up his chil dren' he spares no expense to locate them and satisfy himself as to their status. Mr. McKensle'B narrative comes in advance of his figures, so that it is Impossible to give the population of the country covered by him and his twenty assistants. For reasons of its own, the census bureau determined to number the Alaskans during mid winter. Mr. McKenzie made his headquar ters at the mining town of Fairbanks. His first special agent was appointed on the 10th of last November and the work was completed by the llth of last April, when McKenzie left for "the states." His experience in get ting out of the country was by no means as thrilling as some of his ex periences while engaged In the work, but It was stirring enough to arouse interest in a warm spell. Hardship necessarily was Involved in the work. Only men Inured to the rigors of tho Arctic climate were em ployed, and while they suffered se verely, none of them lost their lives. Churches and school houses in the interior of Alaska are few and far be tween. Necessarily they are confined to the towns and Indian settlements. Most of the Indian schools as well as the church services are conducted by the missionaries. The white people do not attend either the Indian schools or the In dian churches, so that those of the outlying districts get their religion and their education at home. In the matter of education Mr. McKenzie re ports that the home system works very well, the long nights of the win ter causing an enforced confinement of children that is conducive to study. He says that many or tnem do even better than students In the schools. Mr. McKenzie also reports that there Is very little sickness among the white Inhabitants of Alaska, and he says that few of those who are sick will acknowledge the fact. There Is no fever, but some pneumonia. Most of the Indians are afflicted with tu berculosis and other diseases of civil ization are prevalent sfe Eggs by Weight In New York, New York.—Eggs and bread will be sold by weight only in Greater New York in the near future, was an nounced by Commissioner of Weights and Measures Driscoll.
