A Jlasterly Argument.
NO APOLOGY Is needed for the
giving of large space this
morning to an abstract of
the masterly argument made
before the United States Supreme court
by Attorney General Griggs In support
of the government's contention that the
Constitution does not automatically ex
tend all its provisions and limitations
over newly acquired territory.
The belief that it does has many able
supporters, among the latest and most
distinguished to declare himself In that
category being ex-President Harrison.
The question Is so lofty and of such
Immense practical significance that it
supplies material for almost unlimited
argument, liut we think that Mr.
Griggs' brief covers admirably every
essential point In thogovernment's case
and makes very clear that an Interpre
tation of the Constitution which should
deny to the United States the right to
hold territory as property subject to
special legislation so long" as special
conditions require special treatment
would rob our nation of a necessary
function of sovereignty and foice it to
occupy an anomalous and a cilppled
position In the family of nations.
As a matter of fact, the whole course
of our government from Its earliest
days In dealing with infeior laces and
communities has been paternalistic. It
has adapted its laws to the peculiar
necessities of each successive situation
and bus extended the Constitution not
at all or gradually as circumstances
permitted, contenting itself with the
observance of the spirit rather than the
letter of that groat instalment. A Judi
cial ruling which should requite it sud
denly to revei.se this uniform practice
of the past and which should have the
practical effect of investing with com
plete cltlaepshlp the 8,000,000 to 9,000,000
Malays and half breeds recently brought
under the protection of our llag could
not be regarded otherwise than as

i .,, Proving Too Much.
TIIK MICJUHUIOUS let f
the National Civil Service
Reform league as set forth
In another place i-uUps thu
question whether a civil service law so
full of loopholes to evasion and ho weak
in its enacting clauso as the piesent
law Is, If the testimony of Its friends
may bo accepted as well founded, Is
worth the paper on which It is printed.
Something radically wrong Is certanly
to bo Inferred respecting a statuto
which the reputable men In responsible
places in our federal government havo
continually had to violate or evade in
order- to effect administrative lesults
calculated to enlist the practical up.
proval of the public.
It seems to us that the special com
mittee of the National Civil Service Re
form league assigned to investigate the
attitude of the present administration
toward civil service- refoim has In Its
diligence proved too much. The great
army of evidence which It has collected
showing how often the existing civil
service act has had to be dodged and
how easy it has been to dodge It lends
itself much more forcefully to an In
dictment of the act than to an Indict
ment of the administration. The ad
inlnstratlon after four years of excep
tionally successful custodianship of the
public interests has Just received from
the people the most slnnlflcunt and
thnioUgh Indorsement In the annals of
modern politics, so that It will not do
to foncltrdu that It hits boon the ad
ministration which has been at fault.
What fault there Is traces, Instead, to
the law nnd gives pertinence to the In
quiry whether a wholesale revision and
amendment of that law Is not In order.
Applying common sense principles to
practical conditions, the attempt to
elicit proof of administrative fitness by
written examinations In abstract sci
ences stands condemned as laughably
Inadequate. We have lately had lumin
ous examples In China of how thaOklnd
of civil service tests has worked out In
long-continued practice. There no other
door to public office Is open than the
one emphasized by American profes
sional evil service reformers. Yet no
where on earth Is public administration
more hopelessly Inefficient and corrupt.
Men possessing practical ability to deul
effectively with every day problems, In
cluding the efficient handing of labor
and marshaling of creative forces, are
sometimes book-taucht and sometimes
not; but the distinctive qualities which
make them successful are invariably
Impossible of Identification by means
of the written examination system.
There Is no other effective test than to
give them a trial, retaining and pro
moting them If found worthy and "fir
ing" them if found incompetent.
This necessarily vests lurge disci o
tlonary power In the heads of execu
tive departments; but inasmuch as
that Is the rule In private entersrlses
a rule well grounded In unvaried ex
periencethe Idea Is far less frightful
than some of our professional civil ser
vice reformers would have the public

National Out-door Relief.
AS AN ILLUSTRATION of the
socialistic schemes which
, every up-to-date legislative
body has nowadays to squelch,
a bill before congress, sired by Repre
sentative Naphen, a Massachusetts
Democrat, is interesting and entertain
ing If not Important.
It directs the secretary of agriculture
to select and withdraw from the mar
ket, the title to remain In the United
States, 5,000,000 acres of the tiest situ
ated public lands, grouping them to
gether In as large tracts as may be
possible, three-fourths to be of the best
quality of arable lands, susceptible of
irrigation, and one-fourth of the best
quality of timber, coal and mineral
lands. In addition he shall select all
necessary water supplies, reservoir
sites, roadways and other lands to pro
vide roads, irrigation and water power
to be used for the development and Im
provement of the 5,000,000 acres before
The secretary shall next, selecting
from the poor and homeless people of
the United States managers and labor
ers, proceed to fit a suitable tract of
these lands for homes by constructing
Irrigation systems, dwelling houses and
other buildings, with Industral plants.
When thus prepared these lands are to
be divided Into small home tracts, each
to employ and support one family, the
balance to be worked collectively on
equitable terms to the workers. The
secretary Is also to provide all neces
sary teams and also tools and machin
ery, except such as the people may be
able to manufacture for themselves by
hand. He Is, moreover, to establish
mining and manufacturing industiles,
free schools, and establish and manage
all necesjsary money and property de
positories, exchanges, purchases and
sales, the latter to be as nearly as pos
sible upon the basis of value for value,
covering cost, but eliminating all
The secretary Is to call to his aid the
poor and homeless people from all
parts of the United States, "as far as
possible throughout all time," employ
ing no one except citizens who are
without homes and independent means
of support, furnishing them transpor
tation to the lands and "placing the
good-class poor In distinct sets of said
National homes, on separate govern
ment plantations from the other
poor," The general policy shall bo,
"first, to supply all necessities Rant
ing to the employes until they have
had time In said National homes to
become self-supporting; second, to as
sist all employes to make themselves
and their families self-sustaining;
third, to aid and direct them in ac
cumulating to their own individual
credit, out of their own products, a
sulllclent amount to enable them to
secure and equip themselves a homo
and Independent employment free of
all debt, and an faht as they have ac
quit ed such credit they bhall wlthdruw
It and relinquish their rights of em
ployment under this law, and others
shall bo allowed to take their places,"
To carry out the pin poses of this
measuie, "the money pecessary" Is
appropilated out of any surplus funds
In the treasury, and If thoro be no
surplus, money shall bo procured by
taxation, necessaries to bo exempt.
It Is safe to say that this "necessary
money" will remain In the treasury,
According to the chief correspondent
of the Associated Press In the Philip

of the Ideal Girl
I'rom a Itecent Seinion by Hev. Abel M. White,
IP I WKltr. a Rlrl I would seek to be beautiful
and winsome. There U an attraction In
beauty, and I should want to be attractive.
You ask me, ulut do I mean hy beauty? A
pietty face? Yei. A pretty form? Ve. A
pretty drcsi? Yes. I would strlc for all of
these things. Hut more than these, I would
strle earnestly for the fundamental principles.
I.Ike a hoy, a Kill has a tripartite nature. There
Is the pli.vsical side, the intellectual side and the
(.plrltiMl the body, the mind and the soul. And
if I were a irlrl I .should seek to pet hold, of the
principles which nuke for beauty.
If I were a Rlrl I would be tcmpeiate. I would
be temperate In the use of many things. I
would be temperate in ihess. And if I wete a
girl I think I would be inclined to that kind of
dress which would cover the entire body. I would
avoid any form of compicsslon of the body. In
my opinion, it is more wicked for a Christian
to lomprcs her boito and to hinder the develop
ment of any organ than it is for the heathen
Chinese to divaif the feet. If I weic a pill I
would strive for the fullest and heilthlest devel
opment of my body. I would make use of tho
Indian clubs, of the dumb-bells, of the golf
stick and the tennis racquet. I would be tem
perate in the use n( caramels and fudges, and
anything that would arrest digestion and tend
to make the face nn; thing hut lovely. I would
be temperate in rcgud to late liour.s, bo that
my nerves would be steady and strong and true,
that I might not be irritable, but rather com
panionable. I would be temperate in the reading
of novels the soda fountain novel is "flza" and
nothing else and I would feed upon Shakes
peare and Scott, Irving and Longfellow; that
would give me pure thoughts and make me con
versant with the things that arc past as well as
And, if I were a girl, I would be temperate in
the use of slang. Oh, girls, if you knew how
disgusting to men and women is the girl who
uses slang jou would not hive reason to look
back 3 cars henco with 1 egret that you had
spoiled jour English by slangy words. Then, 1
would seek earnestly to learn how to do house
work, to make bicad, to bake cookies that are
eatable, to cook potatoes in four or five dlffiicnt
ways, to set the tabic and to wait on it cheer
fully and properlj. t would learn how to sweep,
to make the bed, to mend niy clothes from the
solo of the stockings on my feet to the top ot
the highest ribbon on my bat. If I weic a girl
I would seek to put the smile on mothers face,
to keep the w i Inkles out of her checks and to
make her happy eveiy day, I would seek to drive
the burdens from father's shouldris and to light
en the cares tint tioulde his be.ut and life. I
would strive to keep both mother and father
young all the iljjs of their life upon eaitli.-
And, if t were a gill, I flimly believe tint I
would be a Christian. "Heck je flist the king
dom of fiod" and then the beauty will be joins,
as beauty Is that be.iutv docs. The handsome
face will come if the conduct is right and tho
fiindimental principle are observed.
