which seems worthy of a re-setting.
It is the assertion of Mr. levelaud to

impair the efficiency of that system's

to Treasurer Powell's questions re
specting the theatrical license problem
is an opinion full of common sense.
The- paragraph exonerating county
treasurers from "active duties In the
way of fsrrtsing out attempted, pre

law" may annoy casuists, but it will
be pleasaut reading tu thousands of
Pennsylvania theater goers who do not
wish to encourage violations even of a
discredited pioneer law yet who, at the
same time, do not especially desire to
see that law enforced. The natural In

lead to a correct definition of the law

thought necessary. The present uncer
tain location of authority under the
special act of ISO! is an anomalous con
dition whose further continuauc
would be a redaction upon the fairness
of our legislative aissmbly. VieWel
from any standpoint, the question bril
ties with perplexities which could b-j
most satisfactorily removed by the
framing of a complete, new law, appll -

It WILL be very agreeable news to

embodied one of tbe highsst
tributes that could be paid to a

and members of his Penn avmue con

CIVIL SERVICE REFORM.
Ills announced In the columns of a
local contemporary that collector
Grant Herring "makes uo pretensions
to being a civil service reformer."
Well, so much the better It is unfor
tunately to often the case that the poll

who occupies sll his energy in tellimr

the most In this world. Oie trouble
