Sir Will you de mef-siid soenvoww.
ether 'lenfiafftring tleetlen efletrs a
farerT. ' ' ,
Plette atk the County Commlnlen-,
ra. ni tha naranni rteTDOasiblt for re
celrlng the ballet boxes at City Hall
after election, te te their wp-piecw
and amine te gei the boxes into the,
hall With less delay. ' L
Every time ws take-them down there
it's the same wait wait wait te put
them away. Lat Tuesday night the
line extended from the Seuth Bread
street entrance all along the west side
of the hall past Bread Street Btatlen.
I arrived early en purpose and rn
iered the line just outside the doorway
of Seuth Bread street. The line men
wss only about 100 feet long. um n
took ere hour te go that 1W feet. Hew
long de you suppose the 'peer "Hews
must hnve been in, line who, entered
it in front of' Bread Street Station?
Seme of then! must have been there at
least four hours. '
It -was perfectly evident why the
delay. All the. boxes were compelled
te go .through the neck of a bottle
down into the basement, where a few
men received' them and, taking them
from the two elections efflcers, who
brought them, dragged them into the
storage room and recorded the ward 'and
division.
All this army of' thousands of men
had te wait while these few men dM
the best they could. What If it .had
been a rainy night? What a mess ths
ilg envelopes containing ths returned
ballets would have been in and what
a destruction of clothes?
rrM .rlniia matter en mere
lhan the mere less of time occasioned
by this neeaiess aeiay. j .
because the election judges all ever the
city are finding it increasingly difficult
te get mn te act as clerks. Where
can you find capable men jthe will
work from 7 in the morning until
3 and 4 the next morning for Se? It
means two days from .their regular
occupation. And in that two days
most capable men can be earning at
least $10 at the rate of 830 per week.
Lest election was an easy one te
count. Most of us were through by U
o'clock. But the Judge and his mi
nority inspector who took the boxes
te City Hall many of them did net get
away until long after midnight. '
If an argument is needed against the
socialistic urge for government owner ewner
shipi here Is one. There were at least
1000 men in that line for tfoe hours.
They- represent 2000 hours of work.
The average pay today is $1 per hour.
The cost of keeping these men in line,
if union wages were paid by the Gov
ernment (which they are net) would be
$2000 Just te get the boxes in the
ball. This less does net fall, upon 'the
city, because it pays by the day and
the day ends when the work is done,
even if it takes two days. Se the
city is careless and wastes $2000 of
ether men's time, simply because It
docs net have te pay for It.
But we election officers feel the ef
fect when we try te get men the sec
ond time te work for us. Lets of
them try it once, but never again,
and everybody agrees that efficiency
in lest when the personnel is constantly
chanslnc.
Seinethine must e done at the hnll
te save this wasted time. It would
seem te be a simple matter te allow
the two men who carry the boxes te
take them right te one large room and
deposit them in n row with the ballet
envelope en ten te Identify them :ir
te ward and division, nnd te permit
them te walk out without dclny. Later
and ut their leisure the hall force
could record them and fctew them away.
This method would use the labor of
the 1000 men who bring the boxes
in, which labor is new thrown away
nt the "neck of the bottle," 'where n
few men take charge and stew all the
boxes.
The great gain, however, would be
in the saving of time of the 1000 men
who new have te wait hours upon
hours in line, a thing, greatly te be
desired.
And Till you please ask the County
Commissioners where the sen.be is in
sending te a division wbch is known
te have only 200 registered voters a
Sackage e'f BOO ballets? Don't they
new that at least 300 unused ballets
must come back?
There may be n geed reason why
there Is delay at the hall in receiving
these boxes; there rnsy be u geed rea
son why se many ballets are sent for a
known and limited number of voters;
but at all events and in fairness te "the
boys," If such a reason exists we should
be told, se flint we nnderstnml. And
en the ether hand, if no such reason
exists the "boys' " time should net
be wasted needlessly and the receiving
end should be given some study and
the delay corrected.

Fears for 8afety of VSkeexlx"
Te the Editor 0 lh irn0 Public Ltietn
Sir I am u daily reader of the
KvenineI'ublic Lkdeeii nnd find Mr.
King's cartoon most interesting, but am
somewhat 'worried about "Skeesix." I
am the mother of a baby about his age
and I knew hew my yeugster crawls,
rolls and stands up In his bed.
Were it net for the sides of the
bed, he would have had a dally fall.
"Skeeslx's bed has no sides and he
is very active tee, se won't you please
have Mr. King put sides en the peer
child's bed?
I am worried from day te day think
ing that something hns happened te
him and can't wait for the paper every
day.

That "Rebuff" 'te Judge irewn
Te tin Bdlter et the Bvtutoe Puttie IMami
Sir The levers of rectansular Inter
sections and three-feet-wide alleys are
no doubt-all rejoicing at the rebuff' ad-.
ministered ' by that solemn' tribunal,
common eas Ne. 4, te the pre
sumptuous extravaganc6 of Judge
Brown's sesring Imagination. The" de
cision is net 'surprising. 'There Is no
precedent in the common law (which is
well known te be the perfection of
human reason) for schemes of -beautifies
t Ien, nnd public education .through
the eye alone. The dignity -of the
ermine and the wig has always and very
properly been the special concern of the
court. But' the dignity of a public
building is net precisely what Chief
Justice Taft would call "a Justiciable
question." . '
All general prepositions are dan
gerous. But contradiction will hate its
risks against the statement that Judge
Brown is the only practical 'politician,
within living memory, who has had a
rational idea of a public building com
bining beauty, utility and foresight of
coming need. Would anybody venture
at this time te propose a memorial
service te the designers of the City
Hall?
It is painful te disagree with the
Hen. James Aylwsrd Develin, but there
are occasions when his conscience seems
te workevertime. "The ever-burdened
taxpayer," forsooth ! Where is he? Net
in Overbroek certainly.. We are fa
miliar with the difference between the
asking price and the assessment in that
pleasant purlieu. The trouble in this
shsm-detesting municipality has never
been with the levy as much as with the
return. Judge Brown proposes te give
n commensurate return in service and
nobility. Sympathy with "the over
burdened taxpayer" is easy politics. It
sounds se virtuous and tender-hearted.
Will the victim be helped if they deface
the Parkway with a commonplace
makeshift? Neither is. the querulous
taxable by any means a safe judge en
matters of taste and public convenience
Fifty years age "the ever-burdened
taxpayer" decreed, en referendum, that
our municipal buildings should be piled
in one heap and planted in the middle
of the street.
The late James G. Blaine boldly de
clared that be believed in ample revenue
and wise 'expenditure. Ne temporary
ami penurious expenditure en what
should be a permanent monument is
ever wise, eav.e in a "devastated re
gion." Public buildings properly de
signed and executed are a public ediii
catien, and nn enduring testimony te a
city's magnificence, mere valuable than
a world's fair or any ether device of
commercial advertising.

Included whlls for fair weather, blue for
rain or snow, blue and white for local rain

THE MOVIE, FANS LETTERBOX
' f
By, HENRY
"Trouper" writes: '"I will net com
mence with the time-honored, 'at last I
have succumbed,' for, I, indeed; wrote
you some time age, just a brief epistle
with a few reasonable Questions In it,
but for some reason best known te your
self you cnese te ignore it. However,
springing from a clan famous-' long
since for Its refusal te write 'finis' I
hereby contribute again te your worthy
columns.
"Although I de net wish te peach
en 'Old Timer's' preserves, still I would
like-te menuen that I, tee, have stored
away in a little corner of my memory
some rare pictures of near and real
acting that flashed and flickered in the
early days et the Nlckledeum. Who
can remember where an otherwise tense
dramatic moment would be marred by
the sight of Pathe's pompous bantam
teetering dangerously close te the
heroine's car, or the Sellg triangle
blooming relentlessly en the barrenest
of deserts? In these days Kalem .alone
kept the people guessing, and it was a
long time before I discovered who the
beautiful girl and sleek haired 'here,
later recognized as Alice Joyce and
Carlyle Blackwell, were, and what
their company was called. '
"My first recollection- of Charlie
Chaplin was when he loomed upon the
scene' wearing the memorable garb of
a Keystone con, and gave his victim a
regular Babe Ruth with a night stick.
He was net known by name then, but
he bad 'the audience with him from
the start, and as we filed .out after
the 'performance I heard gurgles and
comments from nil sides' about the
funny little fellow with the big feet.
"And as for Charlle'new, Ged bless
him. he ranks second 'en ray list of
great movie stars.
"Mary Pickford's first.appcarancc te
me was like upte Chaplin's. Ne one
knew her, but we all made prophecies
about the little girl with the curls.
It was an old Spanish mission pic
ture, nnd Mary was being cared for by
the goodly sisters,
"I remember Mack Sennctt in his
clever detective make-up, in which he
and a confederate Hawkshitwcd
through miles of celluloid; the morbid
tragedies of Gaumont, Melle nnd Max
Linder's clever drunk picture.
"Stored away among home et my
treasures is a typewritten offer te join
the old Imp Company. At the time
I received if. like all legits, I looked
unen the cinema with scorn, and grace
fully declined (Lucky I cempanf, say
you?).
"Following In the footsteps of all
newcomers te the column I will here
with name my faverites: Henry II.

panies really in the market for senaries,
and If se, what arc they? '
"New in regard te Tessie Mallet
clever, I'll admit, while the novelty
lasts, but, are you going te make' your
column a clearing house for a let of
alleged humor? This sort of thing is
bound te create imitators. Several are
already with us. and its (rather tire
some te wade through paragraphs of
childish prattle that really has no point
te it (I can sec where I'm in for a
let of razzing by the fans, but I've
at least had the courage te come out
and say whnt I think).
"Seme years nge I saw a splendid
picture, called the 'Chalice of Cour
age.' De you recall it?"
(Yes, you 'bet I remember "The
Chalice of Courage" with William
Duncan. Thought it was great in
these days; wonder what we'd both
think of it new?
. About scenaries: Frankly. I don't
think the beginner has a chance in
the ordinary way. The only, thing te
de is set registered with a geed agent
and pay him his commission. That's

isn't rnsy te butt into any game that
is really worth while.

Hergesbeimer story te the screen. It
will be "The Bright Shawl," the latest
novel from the pen of the author of
"Tol'eble David." The film adapta
tion Is being made by Edmund Geuldlng,
who adapted 'Tol'eble David" for tee
screen. Mr. Hcrgesheimer Is also co
operating in the adaptation.
The greater part of the action in tbe
story takes place in Cuba, and the pic

Shawl."
-J;'D. S. writes: "Please tell me if I

In one letter, ns I have four lengthy
scenarios nearly completed and desire
them copyrighted.
"Has there ever been known as far
back as law can be recalled that a jury
rendered an unjust verdict? that Is te
say, was there ever a jury bought by
money in a serious case like, murder,
ete? If nunswer is yes, can you in
form mc where I might get the book or
could you eivc mc a sketch of same?
"I liavu been called upon by several
producers. Ue I hnve te sell my work
outright, or can I demand them te take
them en n royalty basis?"
(1. The only way you can copyright
a scenario is te deposittwe printed cop
ies nrlnted. mind you. net trne writ
ten at Wnshlneten. Yeu will hnve te
send for separate application blanks
for each unless you hnve the four of
them printed ns one book, with a main
title, in which case you can copyright
i.t all together, like a book of short
stories.
2. I don't remember us far back
as law can he recalled. Who d'yn
think I nm Mrthusela (or was It
"um"?) Certainly I can tell you where
a jury rendered an unjust verdict. Hew
about the Rosier case? They weren't
bought by money, of course. I can't
tell you of any case of that kind. Un
fortunately I'm just it movie editor,
