Inrc-Amorlcan. participation in Philip
government, the democratic
policy as. outlined by tho new gov
ernor general, Francis Burton Harri
son, In his Inaugural speech at Ma
nila, Is a tremendous fall-down. 1 in
dependence Is still the promised land,
the only immediate change an
nounced being to increase tho native
representation on the local legislative
ind administrative bodlos to glvu
thent a majority. Even this Is testi
mony to the efficiency of tho work
already done by former ropubllcau
administrations In developing the
civic abilities of tho Filipino. It Is
an adoption of theropubllcan position
that the natives are not yet capable
of complete solf-government, and that
it is idle to set a definite date for any
future chatiKo In tho relations to thu
homo government, and that tho only
safe Way Is to take one step at a, tlmo,
and lot each determine the next.
Tbo Filipinos, however, havo been
led to bollovo that democratic control
In tho United States meant a much
wider latitude for them, and are
qulto apt to manifest disappointment
if their expectations are not quickly
realized. That tho present adminis
tration does not contomplato any rad
ical divergencies from established
lines Is Indicated In tho govornor
gonoral's declaration, which Is to bp
takon as that of the president, "Until
your Independence la complote wo
shall demnnd unremitting recognition
of our sovereignty." Tho test of
efficiency for tho democrats no longer
lies in carping criticism, but in guid
ing tho destiny of a race.

President Yuan Shi Kni.
Long before tho ropu'bllo of China
was established, Yuan Bhl Kal, as
premier In tho old Manchu dynasty,
was hailed at homo and abroad as
''the strong man of China." 80 tho
nation would seem to havo chosen
wisely and woll in elocting hlrn as
Ub first constitutional president.

president and so directed the affairs

who could bo easily and apparently,

from tho oldest monarchy into a. re
public, a peoplo of tho Chinese stolid
ity ot tomperament and. the genius'
for government, would mako no mis-'
take In tho selection of a chief execu
tive at this tlmo.
Yuan's' transfer from tho premier
ship to tho provisional presidency'
was the occasion abroad for specula
tion as to his temperamental facility:
for adjusting the-po'wera nurtured to
greatnoss in tho atmosphere ot ultra
conservative imperialism to the'
progressive principles Of" republican

nil doubt, both as to the mattor of

A Vital Factor in Heat Prices.
It is as simple as the A, D, C'a
that If) the cousumers of meat would
waive tho demands for tho choice
young cutB and give time for finish
ing more cattle, tho supply would
Increase, and this In turn would have
its effect In a better ran&e of prices.
Dut tho consumers, while rebelling
at the high prices and contriving all
sorts of unreal reasons for their ex
istence, are unwilling to forego hav
ing what they want. In other words,
they insist on maintaining expensive
and fastidious tastes and kick on the
cost. Ot course no one pretends to
say that this wholesale slaughter ot

the meat problem, but It is a very

The Commercialising: of Vice.
CObUMBUS, Neb., Oct. 6. To the Pd-
itor or The Bee: As one Interested In
tho no-called Albert law my attention
has been attracted to a letter In The
Be 3 signed "M, D.", wherein the writer
says, among other things, "And I main
tain that clandestine prostitution la many
times more dangerous, to the public
health and morals than It Is under control
and rigid civil and medical inspoctlon."
The "M. D.", for the reason stated, Is
opposed to the law In question, and ex
presses a willingness to discuss the whole
matter "from the standpoint ot a phy
sician." Tho writer of that letter, like alt those
who have criticised this law, seems to
be Ignorant, not only of Its provisions,
but of the statutes In force when It was
etlacted. In other words, he seems to
think that beforo tho Albert law waa en
acted tho city ot Omaha and other cities
ot the state had the legal authority to
permit and regulate houses of prostitu
tion, and to place them "under control
and rigid 'civil and medical Inspection."
I have not the slightest doubt that It
will be news to him to be told that there
never has been a time In this generation
when a house of prostitution could legally
exist in this state, nor when any city
had the lawful power to regulate a place
of that kind, or lawfully appropriate a
dollar to defray the expense of "rigid
Inspection)"' mcdlcat or otherwise. Hliould
that law ba repealed' today It would stm
be! Unlawful to keep 'or maintain a bawdy
.houircy evert In Omaha, or to appoint ."M.
D." or any other physician at a- "salary
as city Inspector, of prostitutes.
Again he betrays an Ignorance of - the
object of that law. Its author neVer
dreamed that- it would wipe the vice front
Nebraska, It Is aimed at the 'commer
cialization of the evil, and the "wblte
slave traffic." Has "M. D," read Knee
land's "Commercialized Prostitution In
New York City?" At page SJ h, says!
"I simply want to emphasize the fact
that the procurer has practically no
chan:a to ply his trade unless there are
houses ot prostitution from which ho can
accept orders and to which he can dis
pose of the 'goods.'"

other words. It Is what has given rise to
the "white slave" traffic, the very eyll
at which the Albert law .Is aimed.

Go. little song,
Your message bringing
To" hearts that long
Have, known no singing;
To hearts that hold
No glad tomorrows;
To hearts grown old
With cares and sorrows.
Sing but a lay
Of wodslde rambles!
Of autumn day
And berry brambles.
Of gain and pelf
Make men forgetful;
Of thought of self
And wsrrles -tretful.
Take back the heart
To babbling fountains
From street and -mart.
To storied mountains.
Of rainbow's end
And golden treasure
A message send,
Perchance of pleasure;
Of country sights
And village steeples;
Of fairy sprites
And elfin peoples;
Of woodland rill
And dancing shadows;
And sun-shot meadows.
Make young again
The heart that hardens;
Sing of the rain
And old-time gardens.
Go, little song,
For Joy Intended;
Return ere long,.
