I tones and Their Garnet.
The raiding of what is called a "millionaire gambling club" at Nar ragansett Pier, brought about a new revelation of the marvelous change that has come over American society in recent years. Gambling was once a vice known to American women only by repute. It was looked upon by them with abhorrence. Now it has become a fashionable pastime. No summer resort holds their favor unless it provides a means for faster and more furious gaming than can be practiced at bridge or even at poker. This change in womanly standards of right and wrong is due to the sim ultaneous operation in society of many disintegrating forces. First is' the corrupting influence of foreign travel employed riot in studying the art or the culture of the Old "World, but in visiting gambling rooms where European profligacy disports itself. Nest comes the influence of the in creasing luxury of American life; a luxury that tempts women as well as men to gamble through a sheer weari ness born of wealth and leisure. Last, but not least, is the development in the national character of a tempera mental desire for gambling, not only as an excitement, but as a means of getting money quickly and without toil. Between Wall street and the gam bling room there is little difference, except in the names of the games that are played. When men talk con stantly of their winnings, when there is an incessant boasting of money made and of money spent: women. naturally come at last to have a de sire to try the game themselves: and with woman the ;tep from desire to deed is very short. "There will be many homilies written on the disclosures of this raid, but none of them will do justice to the women caught at the games, that does not throw .the responsibility for. their follv unon the ureater folly of fathers, brothers and husbands, who have made gambling in one jform or another the -mostTioted occupation of the metropolis of the Republic.

Generally speaking, conditions show an absolute lack of anything ap nrnaehiny true Datriotism. not to speak of the lacking sense of civic re sponsibility or of common honesty Specifically speaking, the crime is gen- erallv greater than this. It is not merely negative, not only the lack of something, but positive, as it shows the possession of the meanest kind of mean streak. In order to escape pay mentof a few hundred dollars on Arti cles, not of necessity, but of luxury, the crime is jiboufrthe meanest imaginable. Mr. Adriance. who accompanied his wife, is treasurer of a large New York munufacturintr . concern, yet he al lowed his wife to make a false declara tion, to continue in false statements until searched, and only advised her to tell the truth when a second search, rlpsrinofl to be successful, was about to be made. It is difficult to make headway in the great task of increasing respect for the law in America, but the diffi culty is rendered greater by the atti tude assumed by those whose position in the community should carry with it some sense of respectability.

Remember, Mr. Voter, that the Democrats enacted a senatorial pri mary law to hinder you from voting for a party candidate for United States senator without voting, on the same ballot, for the nominees of the party to which your choice for sena tor belongs. You car. put the names of Republican candidates for Repre sentative and State Senator on a Democratic ballot, however, and thus vote for a Republican United States Senator; for the Representative and the State Senator will reflect your vote in the election of a United States Senator by the legislature.
