JUDGE KUNKKI/S FITNESS
IT Is not surprising that so much
favorable comment has been
evoked in the newspapers and
among the lawyers of tho State by
the suggestion of the name of George
Kunkel, President Judge of the Courts
of Dauphin county, in connection with
the nonpartisan nomination for the
Supreme Court. Such a selection
would bo admirable in every way and
the bar associations of Central Penn
sylvania should be the leaders in a
definite movement to bring tho name
of Judge Kunkel before the voters of
the State In the May primary.
If thero is any virtue In the non
partisan law as affecting the judiciary,
now is the time for tlic electorate to
demonstrate the fact. Wo believe tho
able and upright and level-headed
jurist who sits in the courts of this
district is equipped an no other Com
mon Picas judge in the Stato is
equipped for the important work of
tho higher tribunal.
Judge Kunkel has some good old
fashioned notions about tho dignity of
the bench and it goes without saying
that he would never engage in a per
sonal campaign for his elevation to
the highest court in the Common
wealth, but his friends in all parts
of the State are busy in his behalf and
the bar of this district would be unani
mous in his support. Political, con
siderations would cut no figure. His
superior qualifications are recognized
on every side and men of all parties
would delight to honor him for the
high-minded and able service which
he has given the and the district
during the last ten years.
These are the days of the discrimi
nating voter and the nomination of
euch a jurist as George Kunkel in a
State-wide primary would do moro to
vindicate the law than any develop
ment of the present mi.xs.ii campiufrn.

'ROUND WORLD FLIGHT
THE most spectacular adventure
ever proposed is the "round the
world flight" from San Fran
cisco to San Francisco as a part
of the great Panama Exposition cele
bration next year. Tho race, the cli
max of all the world's aeronautical
activities, is to start from the grounds
of the exposition in Muy, 1915, and
must be finished within ninety days,
according to the tentative plans sub
mitted to the Pacific Aero Club, rep
resentative of the Aero Club of Amer
ica, which is the American division
of the Federation Aeronautiquo Inter
nationale. Thus the flight becomes
the most tremendous aerial drama
Aviators have long discussed the
■project of round-the-world aeroplane
tours. The great distance already ne
gotiated under the most difficult cir
cumstances indicate that an aeroplane
tour of the world is only a question or
adequate arrangements for oil, relays,
etc., and that it has not already been
done is due to the item of cost.

In fact, the introduction of the
merit system in the police and fire
departments cannot come too soon
for the welfare of Harrisburg. Civil
service regulations would relievo the
commissioners of the endless maul
ing of job hunters and give thorn
time for the real business of the city.
Such a system would also remove tho
temptation to use important depart
ments, as was done under the Royal
administration, for the building up
of a political machine.
We trust, the Republicans who are
in a majority in the City Council, the
first under the commission form of
government, will resist the quite nat
ural impulse to wliack a Democratic
head wherever they see it if for no
other reason than the rebuke which
I such u course of official action would
administer to their partisan critics.

CHANGES IN CHINA
MUCH as has been said concern
ing the swing back of China
toward imperialism, changes
in methods of government that
have prevailed there for ages past are
being made .with startling rapidity.
Who could have.lmagined civil serv
ice in China three or four years ago?
Yet steps are now being taken, in
sharp contrast with our own Demo
cratic attempts to break down the
merit system at Washington, to place
the civil service of the new republic
on a firm and enduring basis.
It is the intention of the govern
ment to pave the way for a steady
succession of reforms in methods of
appointment; and not merely is the
system to be applied to the provincial
staffs, but high offices as well as sim
ple clerkships are to be under the civil
For this reason, according to a
presidential mandate, all pi'esent offi
cials are to be considered as being ap
pointed merely pro tem. As suitable
candidates prove their proficiency and
efficiency, the temporary appointees
will step down to make way for their
successors. The necessary qualifica
tions for the higher posts include a
threo years successful course of law in
China or abroad; or two years experi
ence in the service of the administra
tion and six months study of law; fa
miliarity with international treaty
obligations, the constitution, essential
questions of administration, and a
proper understanding of local and na
tional customs and ideals.
All of which is respectfully submit
ted to the Honorable Champ Clark,
Mitch Palmer and those other ar
dent reformers who are so keen to
knock the props from beneath civil
service appointees in order that favor
ites who could not pass the required
examinations may be given jobs to pay
political debts and Increase the power
of the Democratic machine.

THE BANK GUARANTEE
THE trustworthiness of William
Jennings Bryan's governmental
schemes and advice may be
judged by the manner in which
his bank guarantee plan is working
out in Oklahoma, the only State that
has had the temerity to put in into
YVhen Bryan voiced his worthy suc
cessor to the "16 to 1" slogan there
were many who professed to see in it
an end to wildcat banking and per
fect security for both banks and
public. Oklahoma believed so thor
oughly in it—that is, those in chargo
of the lawmaking department of the
government did—that it was enacted
into a State statute.
It is interesting to note how tho
idea is working out in every day prac
tice. Without going into a maze of
figures, available for those desiring to
ucquaint themselves fully with the sub
ject in the recently issued State bank
ing report of Oklahoma, it may be
stated that "wildcatting" has greatly
Increased in that State since the pas
sage of the new law, and perfectly
trustworthy banks have been assessed
un annual average of almost 3 per
cent, on their capital, or 1 per cent,
of their dally deposits, to make good
the losses of banks that failed. In
addition to the limit placed on the
amount the banks may be assessed as
their share, the State has agreed to
make good to depositors all losses. It
Is now more than $650,000 behind in
payment of these obligations. In ad
dition the wildcat banks are on the in
crease and nobody can foresee the end.
This Is a fine commentary on tho
-.agacity and foresight of our Secre
tary of State, Is it not? Incidentally,
it may be proper to note here the
announcement of to-day's newspapers
that Mr. Bryan is coming Into Penn
sylvania next Fall to tell us how to
do things here.

People who heard Munson Havens,
the famous executive of the Cleveland

the Harrisburg Chamber a few days

level-headed, sagacious man of busi

surprised to learn that he is some
what of an author of the light and
airy as well. In fact, he is one of the
most versatile of men in American
business life to-day, as this criticism
of his work from the Philadelphia
Ledger will show: "While the timely
and very readable love romance, "Old
Valentines," by Munson Havens, is
built upon the lightest of sentiment,
never for a moment does it lapse into
mawkish sentimentality; and through
out are evidences of sterling work
manship. It deals chiefly with the love
affair of Phyllis Oglebay and John
Landless. Phyllis' father was an artist
and her mother an actress, and when
Phyllis falls In love with a poet her
matter-of-fact old uncle, Sir Peter
Oglebay, who brought her up, regards
it as an unforgivable calamity. Phyllis
and John go tlielr own wav, however
and are married. Phyllis has no
money and John has btt little, but life
Is made easier for them by discovering
in their landlady the old nurse wh<>
cared for Phyllis when she was a little
baby. Phyllis' mother's name was
Y alentine, and Phyllis' most cherished
possession is a wonderful collection of
old valentines which her father gave
her mother at different times. In
directly, these old valentines bring
about a reconciliation between Sir
Peter and the young neonle, and the
story leaves them all happily situated
in the old country home where John
lived when a boy. It is a wholesome

WOMAN OBJECTS TO A CABTOON
To tin Editor of The Telegraph: '
I have been waiting in vain for
some other person to express disap

the front page of the Telegraph one
month ago to-day. This was entitled
"Tho Strong Arm of tho Daw," and
showed a hand Inscribed "The Daw"
thrusting into prison "Vice" in the
form of a woman, while the righteous
public tyjjilied by the figure of a man
stood by clapping his hands, and ex
claiming "At Last." X wish to protest
against the injustice to womanhood in
using tho figure of a woman to sym
bolize vice ill this remarkable man
iuado cartoon. Itecent speakers have
shown that man, rather than woman,
is responsible fofr the vice of this city.
Wliy then should it be necessary to
use woman as . an emblem for vice,
