It seemed to be un usually rough, she thought to herself. as she lay back on the pillows and tried to decide what to do. The boat pitched and tossed, and, as the light began to c.rpp in through the windows, she saw It was misting a little. Helen had a habit of waking: early every time she happened to be in a strang-e place and of thinking things o r and deciding what she would wear. She would dress Winifred in her little ue serge dress and her warm coat. Feil-a ps she would take her for a walk around the deck before breakfast un less it was too rouA. The ship save another pitch at that moment, and War ren s shoes clattered on the floor. The next moment the rising bell rang, and Warren sat up and looked at his watch.

The disciples of the "Pastor," hun dreds of young men and women, live in scores of buildings -n the neighbor hood, none of them specially built or Jesigned for the purpose. On the ground floor of No. lil-li Columbia' Heights and extending through lo in street in rear is an immense dining ball seat ing 300 persons, where the "Paster" Russell pupils living in the various Jormitorles dine together; that is. when there are not so many that several tables" are necessary.

""There is no sense in fighting, in killing men," War said; "all wrongs men should be aghticg by peaceful means instead; bat then the allied nations of peace were tired and seie, and hence these tribulations they simply honed for gsre." And then I preached some ser mons, to show that Wax was wrong; "the blame rests with the Germans, with war machine so strong. One word led to another, until we came to blows, and Wax, that man and brother, I smote upon the nose. He climbed upon my shoulders and loosened seven slats; and then we threw some boulders, eld cab bage and cats. The peelers came and choked us and dragged us ort to jail, and then the jurist soaked as for quite a bunch of kale. And since that day I'm wiser; I talk of peace no more; I know how king and kaiser get mad and thirst for gore.

Here are your things; you left them here last nlsht. you know. Helen was shivering in a thin kimono and Warren stumbled over his shoes- -Why don't you get Into bed till I get ready?" he said irritably. "There's no need of two of us trying to find things in this room." Helen climbed Into bed meekly and waited till he scrambled into his clohtes. Warren finished his dressing. "I'll wait for yon on deck," he said, as he went out. "And don't be too long." Helen -sighed. Warren was selfish, bitterly so, but she would not let his selfishness spoil her first day at sea. She would dress herself first and then Winifred. , . . , . She was putting the finishes touches to her hair when the door opened and Warren came in. -Nearly ready?" he said brusquely.

"Guess you've forgotten about It" Helen Begin to Feel Faint. Helen's head was beginning to spin and she felt rather faint. Winifred was awake and Warren lifted her down and told her to get into her shoes and stockings. "There they are. dear." said Helen, steadying: herself on the edge of the couch and then lying back a moment. Warren paused and looked down at her with real sympathy. "If you feel had. don't bother to get up." he said sympathetically. "But Winifred." she protested faintly. When anything was the matter. Helen always felt it in her head first, and now she felt that If she could rest, the dizziness would pass off. "We'll have the stewardess In to dress her, and I'll send in some orange juice for you." "I don't feel as if I could eat any thing, dear, and I'm so sorry to be mis erable the first thing." Warren pushed the button and picked up the towel that had been throwndown as he waited. "Ton can't regulate these things." be said, in his usual manner of making light of things. "You'd better get up on deck right after breakfast; the wind will blow all this feeling away.

"We didn't have room enough for them in this big build ing, so after the dormitory floors above were filled, we rented rooms nearby as best we could. "The girls work at all sorts of things part of the day and study the rest of the time, taking liberal hours for recrea tion. They can leave ajiy time they wish, but they are happy and con tented. They are guests of the Inter national Bible Students' association and there are no charges or any kind."

One of his prnicipal activities Is a moving picture drama based on the creation, which is aow to be seen in almost every great city of the world.

Botk Sides of tke New jitne Ordinance Question X LAWYER'S VIEW. March lSth. IMS. Editor E3 Paso Herald: The proposed ordinance to regulate the jltne can. dwdsnated as -motor bosses." which is now before the city council. Is cm of much public interest, for there are many who would de away with the Jitaes, while ' others favor them. 1 A short while ago I had occasloE to i investigate the power of the city council to " inhibit or materially hamper the operation I of cars engaged la the jitas service, and ay Investigation Justifies me la saying that the council cannot legally adopt tfie pro j posed ordinance In the absence of express I legislative authority, or la the absence of power necessarily to be implied from ue express powers granted. The purpose of the proposed ordinance, inaotar as it is intended to protect the pub lic and afford redress against the earner. Is to be commended, bat the method by which such redress is designed to be vouchsafed will. If the ordinance be adopted, prove futile and harmful In that the public will be led to believe that In patronizing' the "motor bos." they will be secured In the recovery of damages by the pbond sought to be exacted by the ordi nance, wnereu snooia men oona De siven it would be non-enforceable, for that, be ins' exacted colore officii, or as a condition to seme act to which the party would be entitled without giving bond.

The general law provides that the council may tax and license automobtle. and ex clusive of the exercise of the police power, this is about as far as the council may go in the absence of statutory law or charter provision amplifying the power, for it will be presumed that the provisions of the general law and the charter granted by the state does In clesr and unmistakable terms grant all the power, and no more, which the state intended to grant.

Specifically, the followtng may be pointed out as a few ef the many vices in the pro posed ordinance. The ordinance provides that no license shall be leaned antil the applicant therefor shall have passed a qualifying examination before the chief of police or some one designated by him. Here we have a power which does not exist, or Its existence doubt ful, in the council attempted by It to be delegated first to the chief ef police, ami then by htm to some one else and so on ad infinitum, and it will be observed that the duty to examine and pass upon the applicant's qualification is not merely min isterial, but Involves the exercise of discre tion, bat assuming though not conceding the council Iteelf has the power to institute sn examination into the qualifications of the applicant, the power could not he dele gated. The ordinance also provides that the ap plication for license shall be accompanied by a bond In the sum of $. to be con ditioned, that the obligor will pay. or re turn to the city all sums due for license tbe ordinance provides the license shall be paid for In advance) tax or other lia bility, including all fines and eerfeltures accessed against the obligor by any court. Further that the obligor will satisfy and discharge all final judgments recovered sgainst the obligor or any of his servants by any person whosoever, that the bond shall Inure to the benefit of sll persons injured, who may have the right to re cover for any breach of the same, or for the violation of any ordinance of the city by the obligor or any one in his employ. Unique restore. An unique feature of tne proposed ordi nance is that it provides that If a salt or suits be instituted against the principal and sureties on the bond, the city council shall then preadjudirste the probable merits of the salt or salts but how and in what way. the ordinance does not disclose) snd deter- opheliaJ TSLl k.va.mAm-mmL' 1 NDOOR SPORTS-:- WISH:,..,. !

Stewart of the International Auto company, discussing the ordinance, said: "If the city council passes the proposed ordinance which Is Intended to drive the nickel cars out of business, every man and woman !n this city will cry out in bitter protest. I am in favor of proper regulation to protect the pub lic, but I am not in favor of taking away from the people a service which is badly needed. The people want it and I believe It is here to stay." Means End of Service. Jack B. Davis, representing the Pub lic Service company, said: "I wish lo convey to the public assurance from each and every member of our associ ation, that It is our earnest desire to give to the people efficient and expe ditious service. To do this It is essen tial that there be no ordinance or ad verse legislation enacted which would make prohibitive the running of nickel cars. We shall have competent legal representation to appear before the city council and we intend to show the members of this body that should the proposed ordinance be enacted It will necessitate the discontinuing of the I nickel service and deprive tne drivers ui a incsus Ul IIIC1IUWU. "Here to Stay." J. W. Ramage, representing the In dependent Jitne drivers, said: "Five thousand people are carried to and from their work every day. and we get them there on time. The public wants it and it is here to stay. We are in fa vor of adequate regulation to protect the public. And we feel as though the city council is usurping Its power In its effort to crlve us out of business, and we will defend our rights to the end." Want n Square DeaL E. E. O'Dell representing the Star Auto company, said: "We are only ask ing for a square deal and Intend to get it, even though we must carry the mat ter to court. The people are with us. which assures our ultimate triumph." Jack J. Phillips, temporary chairman of the Jitne Drivers' association, de clared: "You can rest assured that we will not fall asleep on the Job. At the public hearing of the city council we will have an array of legal talent to represent us. We are fighting for our verv existence and don't propose to be electrocuted by the Electric Railway company." The Organiser's Views. Dick Evans, organiser for the Jitne drivers, said: "The public auto service In this city as represented by those engaged in public transportation at a minimum fare, is a lawful business, and the extent to which It has developed In so short a time, and. the volume of patronage it has received from our citixens demonstrates that it Is not only a business utility, but a necessity to El Paso's rapidly increasing popula tion. No one realizing the requirement of the public can gainsay that it is not a most popular and lawful occupa tion. Were it not so, such drastic regu lations as proposed by the city council would not be undertaken in the inter ests of an apparant opposition on the part of another system of transporta tion. We admit, however, that the serv ice has grown to such an extent that some regulation is necessary to proper ly control it. We expect a modification of the city ordinance so that the public auto service will attain a square deal and be permitted to continue in busi ness." mine whether the plaintiff or plaintiffs win probably recover, and if probable recovery is adjudred by the council no matter how erroneously or arbitrarily, then without tfe right of appeal or to quoation. the jodff ment of the conncil Is final and conclusive, and the licensee mast rhre a new bond; such v-.ould not be doe preeaos of the law. and such arbitrary and plenary power to condemn without hearing, to adjudleate ex parte, is not of heaven nor yet of earth.

The following is a summary of & few of the objections to the legality of the pro posed ordinance. It is discriminative It is ultra Tires. It is unreasonable. It is a chaotic con glomerate of enigmatic ambiguities. It is as to the present holder of a license retro active. The license tax under the guise of a license fee Is a tax to raise a revenue to bo used to enforce the ordinance, and therefore 1 1 legal. It not beln g a uniform tax nor a tax the council can lawfully Im pose. The requirement of so onerous a bond or any bond for the payment of taxes, fines, forfeitures and penalties by the own er of a --motor bus." is contrary to th general laws, state tand municipal, which provide a procedure and a way for the col lection of all taxes, fines, penalties and for feitures, which can be legally imposed or exacted by the council. 'While the council has the right to tax automobile as any other property, and the right to license them, and to provide for their reasonable regulation, this is as far as the courts would permit the council to go. for the power of the council Is circum scribed by the general law In the absence of express statutory amplification of its power. In the absence of legislation, and tinder the law as it now is. the council is power lees to effectively deal with the subject by ordinance, for it must be conceded that the law sought to be applied alone to the jitne owner would be what Is commonly characterised as class legislation, and therefore obnoxious: but the proposed ordi nance prescribes that '-motor bosses'' with a regular route shall be confined to that route and that such cars shall have dis played a sign showing the route of Its travel, and thus defined, they alone for that reason, shall give a bond with conditions more onerous than even the legislature could prescribe, and that they most pay a special onerous and unreasonable tax under the Sift of a license fee. and which is not Imposed upon any other private or pan tic service cars. Bat One Effective War. There Is but ohe effective way to deal with the jitne problem, and that way is not through or by the city council as the law now la. but a bill could he framed which if enacted Into a law. would be simple and efficacious and free from tech nical and substantial objection, but such a law would bear no resemblance to the pro posed ordinance or the bill recently Intro duced In the legislature and which, the legislature wisely refused to pass. Should the proposed ordinance be adopted, the council will overleap its au thority and open up a "-Pandora box of useless litigation, all of which would ulti mate to the benefit of the jitne, or "mo tor (bus.'' r It has been Jestingly suggested that an effective way to get the jitne cars out of business would be for the street railway company to voluntarily reduce Its fare to 3 cents, as chapter 12 of the R. a does not apply to the regulation of street rail way charges by the district court, as It does to chsrges by gas, telephone -and light companies. ' Not Fair lo Street Railway. The street railway company has Invested many thousands of dollars, and more than any other one factor, it quickened the growth of El Paso from a village to a city. and It la not fair to it, though convenient to the public, that It should have to com pete wtth the jitne cars, or cars by what ever name or no name engaged In the Jitne service, and the public should consider that with the Jltne competition, street railway extensions and the building of street rail way systems will be only of the past, for the Jltne, like the English sparrow is In many ways by some thought to bo a nui sance, but It like the sparrow has come to stay, and like the sparrow by team work: will prove annoying to competitors, but all this as it may be. the city council cannot lawfully arrogate to Itself the power of the state legislature, nor override the general law and by a specious special ordinance single out the jltne car and impose upon its owner, burdens, taxes, penalties, regula tions, llabilitiea and annoyances, which are not uniformly Imposd upon other cars, and which the council has no power to impose on any car under Rubsining lew. Don't delude the public Into the belief that the Jitne bond would afford them any redress or security for damages In the event i of personal injuries through the negligence j ef the jltne driver, for the bond. If given. would be worthless, no matter how solvent the sureties, and this for the reason that the citiaon desiring to operate a Jitne car by name or any other name, has an equal right to do so, as could the owner of any other car. and until the legislature adopt the necessary law to regulate the nuisance. If nuisance It can bo called, it is better to bear the ills we have than to fly to others we know not of. and in the mean time the best thlnr for the public to do. If it wants to be paid for its broken tegs, la to patronize a carrier of Its own choice. The proposed ordinance is m adroitly drafted as it could be. but a readitur of It will disclose that its author was full welt aware of the Insuperable legal difficulties which confronted him.

Conscience has no dimensions or mus cles and cannot seize its owner by the neck swd compel him to obey. It acta more like an 89-pound wife who has to control a 185-pound husband. It keeps bringing a question up again and again, after it has been settled, with a a-entle. timid insistence. After a man's con science has waked him up at 3 a. m. for 17SS nights hand running, to discuss a little matter of right and wrong, he would give all his earthly possessions to be able to talk back with an ax. However, in this respect, conscience has a vast advantage over the small, pale woman. One cannot kill It all at once. If a man obeys his conscience to a reasonable extent, he can live an up right life and win golden opinions after he is dead. However, no man should attempt to enter the arena, of politics and finance unless he is able to back his conscience Into a corner and throw a mattress1 over it when necessary. Conscience has spoiled more political and financial deals than the fool friend who rushes in with a new story Just as a sale is. being con cluded.
