jDAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL BY HOFER DR08. OFFICIAL CENSUS SALEM, MAY, 1004, 13,287. 4MmMm& THAT FINANCIAL REPORT. "The report of a special committee of fthe city council on tlio report of the city treasury Is-nn interesting revelation. It shows that thero was urgent need of adopting a new system of handling ana Accounting for the- city rovonnes. The report is still more- confusing tlhan the former report. It docs not agree frith itself, and docs not ngrco with anything. Nominally tho city has had a city treasurer. But tho accounts of the Swale nnd tho accounts of tho city treas rarer wero carried on independently. 'The-Republican city administration will have nccorapllshod something if It rgcti any kind of a settlement of theso Siverso reports. Tire report now goes to tho commlttco ton -ways nnd means, and they will prob TaClBy liiro another export to continue the Scvcvtlgatlon. It is to bo hoped this Investigation will not only forco the adoption of n Mystcm of handling tho treasury, but tforco an actual settlement nnd produc Hloo of the balances duo tho city, rroao to tiie baltio. & splto of tho stunning defeat sus ttnlnod in tho Korean strait, Russia, it must be remembered, Is slow to talk peneo and unwilling to listen. Tier equanimity, patlenco and per sistence in tho face of hard luck havo rcr bordered upon the sublime. Many of tho greatest military triumphs in licr history hnvo followed upon tho lieels of great reverses that to nil but Srersolf seemed crushing. War cri tics who tako into considera tion this fact that Russia novcr knows whon sho is whipped uro saying that alnro tho destruction of Rojostvonsky's fleet Russia is really no worse off than aho was before Japan now has control of tho eastern sens, but so had sho bo fore ltojcstvensky sailed. Defeat of Togo, the war critics say, would have left tho Jnpnnoso nrmy In Manchuria -cut off from communication nnd sup plies nnd beon tho beginning of tho oml. Hut to Russia tho loss of n lot of 'battleships, useless to her anyway, -means only a material reduction In ex pense. But such vlow Is based on tho ns tiumption that tho only posslblo field of naval operations is tho onstorn seas. Hero is n strango oversight. Togo hnsns good right now to tnko Ills victorious fleet to tho Baltic as lto jcstvensky had to tako his to tho const of Japan. It would bo perfectly proper for To go to return Rojostvonsky's visit and glvo St. Petersburg a tnsto of what wns threatened Toklo. This would seem to bo good policy, particularly now since Togo has nothing left to do In tho oast. Undoubtedly Kmporor 'William and tho French government would throw n dozon fits and England horsolf bo ex cited ovor such a move But what of tbatf Did any far eastern power Invito Ho jestvensky to go oast, or content to Ids golngf No, Nor doos Togo need invitation or oonsont.

It seems that in Wesconsln a bill intonded ns preventivo of "rako off" inadvertently contains a clauso which makes it unlawful to glvo a "tip" to a waiter or porter. As an nnti-rako-off measure tho bill was innocuous enough to excite little interest. But as an nnti-tipplng meas ure it has stnrted a cyclono of disap proval. Yet an attempt to amend it has failed. Tho legislature "stands put," and hereafter In Wisconsin any mhn who gives n "tlj'' or takes ono will bo subject to n severe- penalty. Religious freedom In Russia makes strong appeal to tho world's humanita rians, but freedom from tho tipping prnctico In Wisconsin touches tho American heart more tenderly still. It Is tho little impositions nnd in justices from which wo suffer most. Tho magna uharta was n mighty step towards human liberty, but It still loft us slaves to tho hotel waiter and tho Pullman porter. If tho waiter does not got the sum ho expects ho can make It so disagreoablo that tho imfortunnto guest will glvo it tho noxt timo In sclf-dofense. In many European cltlos tho waitors get no wagon, but nre required to pay some thing for tho prlvllego of waiting on tho guost. from which ho extracts his pay. In this country it Is likely that tho hotels get their waitors cheaper be canso of tho tips, or, in othor words, tho guest must pay for his meals at such rate As will Ineludo rent, service, etc., nud in addition must help In this way to pay tho wages of the water, but to tho landlord, The system has driven tho waitors more and moro into tho attitude of sturdy beggars or highwaymen, and It is becoming moro and moro intolerable as a nuisance to the guests. Tho tip Is no longer regarded ns a gratuity. It Is demanded ns a right, and fow waiters tnko the trouble to thank the giver. If ho doos not glvo at all he will soon bo sorry. Wisconsin has made n groat advnnco In human rights. Hero's hoping that tho legislators of other states may throw off tho thralldom of tho waiters and mako froedom from "tips" unl vcrsal. wa Furious Fighting. "For seven yoars," writes Goo. W.
