Congress last year amounted to about
$12,500,000 a ship, which was $4,500,

amount Is to grow larger.

The question of what title to give
a person, aad what form tbat title
should take, Is often perplexing.
Leigh H. Irvine, a graduate of the
University of Missouri, class of 1862,
Is the author of a "Dictionary of
Titles," last Issued, that clears up
many knotty points of usage. The
book tells how to address the Presi
dent of the United States, clergymen,
the Chief Justice, college professors,
Judges of all kinds, foreign ministers
anybody, in fact, who is entitled to
put a "handle" on his name. Busi
ness forms and social usage arc dis
cussed. For example, one should
never use the salutation "Dear Miss."
The family name (surname) should
be given, aa "Dear Miss Jones."
"Dear Madam" or "My Dear Madam"
may be used in addressing both mar
ried and unmarried women.
Concerning the title "Professor'
the author says: "This is a much
misunderstood and abused title. It
Is assumed by the master of black
art who brings silk ribbons and live
rabbits from the high silk hat bor
rowed from the village doctor, by
the street vender of 'paln-kllllas
oHa, by hone-trainers, chiropodists,
and all who pretends to be 'artists
in their line'... But 'Professor' does
sometimes come by right and by
courtesy. One properly elected to a
chair of professorship is a profes
sor.... The election should be held by
persons of authority In an educa
tional institution that "possesses a full
equipment of departments, facilities.
etc.,.. The title, in addition to he.lsg.
Ntguarly and properly bestowed as
indicated in the foregoing, is some-

scientific research or educational
work. Finally, it may be said that
of all titles, 'Professor' should be
used the most sparingly. One ap
plying it should be sure that it will
not offend the person to whom it Is
applied, for if he be not a professor
in fact the title makes him appear
to be a pretender."
Mr. Irvine's book, containing 144
pages, is published by the Crown
Publishing Company, San Francisco.

The theory of sufrage as an o$ce
and sot a right was advanced by
Pref. .Wi j: Ssepsrd of iitetSelklcal
science department of the.Unlveralty
at a meeting of the Social Science
Club Friday sight. He denounced the
Idea of "a right to 'vote" as s prin
ciple evolved daring the middle ages
and based os s cosfaste ef the
electorate and the people. He ex
plained that sufrage is a function of
government and should be regarded
aa a public trust The question who
shall vote should be determined by
educational and moral tests and not
confused with cltfzeaahip.
"The right of citizenship and the
qualifications for voting should ba
separated," Professor Shepard reason
ed. "The theory that the two are in
separable traces back to the barbar
ian hordes from which our westers
civilization baa developed."
The belief in the right to vote, he ex
plained, rests on the theory of the
state as a social compact aad the
theory of popular sovereignty. Sover
eignty is a' legal concept , The con
cept of the people la sociological. The
doctrine of popular sovereignty con
fuses the sociological aad legal con
cepts. On this error the right to vote
ia imputed to all people.
"In advocating the rights of the
people," Professor Shepard said, "as

and the people are confused. These

"The doctrine of abstract right to
vote la now obsolete among political
