A pretty custom has long prevaile

Seattle has a council of nine met

tlon or a compromise between tt

number of aldermen is one of sen :
and economy. It is becoming appn

They will bo allowed to work In the

pile. The prisoners will be allowed
to choose the vegetables and the pro
ducts will be served In the prisoners' '
dlnlngroom. Gardening will not be
compulsory , but the prisoners who do
not work in their gardens will spend
that time breaking stone.

Is no question but that the opening ol
the Panama canal means a larger ln <
crease of commerce for Japan than It
does for the United States. It will
afford the subsidized steamships ol
Jnpau easy access to the Atlantic and
a shorter route to the eastern coast
of South America. Even If our commerce
merco Is Increased in Asia the Inter
change would be very largely carried
in Japanese bottoms. Japan is des
ttncd to wax fat off the across

quired riches and honor from roonopo

A new sensation has developed it
the dynamiting case , in the sending tc
jail of three men at Indianapolis
charged with kidnaping McNamam
and taking him out of the state with
out duo process of law. This action
however , was hardly as unfair as the
method by which McNamara was ar
rested and spirited out of Indiana
without opportunity to employ coun
sel or resist requisition. Such unfair
ness on the part of the men who ar
rested the union leader , could onlj
work against their case and as r
means of creating sympathy for Me
The readiness of Mr. Meyer ant
some other labor leaders to declare
the entire arrest a frame-up , includ
Ing the planting of dynamite in Me
Namara's headquarters , is as unrea
sonable as it would be to declare that
because the men have been arrested
they are guilty. It IB a good time U
keep calm and wait for the real evl
dence in the case before venturinj
cocksure opinions either way.
If the detectives have the guilts
parties under arrest in connectloi
with the Los Angeles Times dyna
mite outrage , which cost the lives o
twenty-one men , the people of tb <
United States may well draw a slgl
of relief , and at the same time join ii
the hope that speedy and sure justice
may be meted out.
Details of tie conspiracy which !
alleged to have been carried out b ]
members of a structural builders' la
bor union , make it one of the mos
appalling crimes in the history of thli
nation , if the accusations advance !
are correct.
It was vigorously denied by officiali
of the American Federation of Labor
at the time of the explosion , tha
union labor was in any way respon
sible for the outrage at Los Angelei
and the officers and members of labo
unions In general will undoubtedly b <
as much surprised and shocked by thi
startling disclosures recently made , ' a ;
other private citizens. Most of then
will realize that if the men under ai
rest are really guilty , a serious blov
to the canse of union labor has beet
dealt by the murderous wretches whi
have wrecked property worth million
of dollars and taken many lives , li
their unfair methods of warfare.
The accused men should have ever ;
chance to prove their innocense. Thi
size of tbe reward mokes it necessary
to take extra precaution to make sun
that evidence submitted , is truetwoi
thy. If they are guilty , their punlsl
ment should be so serere as to etani
out as a warning that civilized socJet ;
won't etanel for dynamite In politics
or economical arguments.
A determined effort Is being madi
by some of the congressmen to mak
the Congressional Record a real newt
paper. They have the idea that i
periodical that purports to be a recon
should not be a work of fiction.
They think it should no longer lool
like any other old government reporl
those funereal black bound document
that scare awny readern by a forbid
ding impenetrability. Rather the ;
would like to have It a real story o
actual debates.
Almost any visitor to Washingtoi
feels he IB repaid by spending conslc
erable time In congress. But fei
people feel that they are repaid fo
time over reports padded with dea
wood , which are circulated as a suj
posed record of these discussions an
When congress lets a member prin
in the Record a speech that it is no
willing to spend time to hear , It I
hardly likely that the public wl !
speid time In perusing it. And wore
of all the limitless freedom give
members to print Jong extracts fret
favorite books scares away the pul
He , which does not want to have It
reading selected by tbo political fad
of congressmen.
The real debates In congress ar
full of human Interest. They rin
with the clash of personal , polltlca
sectional forces. They are n thrillln
and often dramatic epitome of th
progress of political thought. To get
people interested in them , It Is merely
necessary to have it a real and not n
falto report.
The mqre people read about con <
gU'sslonal doings , the more Intolll
gent UTdlct we get on public matters
The iinproxeuicnt of the Record con
sequently Is a question where the pub

the vanity of members , and againsl

The fourth largest cathedral of the
world was conbocratcd Wednesday ai
Mornlngbide nights , In upper Man
Much of the' spirit of self sacrifice
with which tbo medieval cathedral :
of Europe were1 built has appeared It
connection with this church of St
John tbo Divine. One poor seamstrcst
gives $5 a year to it , and a dozen olc
men in a church home earned $250 bj
making nets and hammocks ,
People sometimes wonder why bun
dreds of thousands of Americans gc
to Europe every year , while outsldi
of business men and immigrants , onlj
hundreds come this way.
The answer Is that every slzabl (
town in Europe has been trying foi
1,000 years to secure and preserve
fine buildings , which while not rival
Ing New York's magnificent new
church In size , may equal It In poln
of beauty.
The question Is often asked why tin
old workmen of Europe were superloi
to our craftsmen. We build bette :
locomotives , can't we make as gooi
buildings ?
In the old days in Europe nppren
tlces used to work seven years learn
ing everj" part of their art. They wen
kicked and cuffed about the shop !
until they did good work. No mai
became a master workman until h <
submitted a piece of work artistti
enough to get by the head men.
The modern workman seeks firs
for better hour's and pay , and fln <
work Is secondary. He Is to be com
mended for bettering his condition , am
ho is not to blame for the modcn
method that hampers him.
Our modern system of industry re
duces him to a machine by limitin )
him to the performing of some on <
little function. In the old days then
was no such sub-division of labor , am
tbe artisan's Intelligence was devel
oped by doing all parts. Our moden
method Is as if a. man tried to develo ]
his physique by exercising one arm.

Daughters of the American Revolu

A verbal harpoon was thrown inti

when Mrs. Mathew Scott , president
general , described the campaign for i

received with laughter. It evident ! ;
looked to them as If it would be easle
to wash the war paint off the flghtlni
chieftains of Europe.
In the seclusion of their home cit
cles , tbe Daughters are very calm am
self contained persons. They givi
scrumptious social functions , at whlcl

But the Daughters have been all th
more attractive , on account of a cci
tain aloofness from the new rlc
crowd. In their circles , standard
other than dollars have taken con
mand , an Isolation from the drift o

that tree planting time ha
come ; let 'those who have planted o
are about to plant , give more Urn
and attention to the new trees tha
merely setting them out. Much of ou
tree energy In this country Is waste
because it all IB spent In tbe one at
of setting out the new tree , wlthoi
ever giving further care and attentio
to tree dexelopment. Many of tin
trees set out are carelessly sclectei
and give poor results ,

en that the trees bo set out not to

already stand too close together , the ;
should bo thinned out In order to glv
best results.
Trees with plenty of little root
should be selected for planting ; an
foliage up on the trunk should ho ou
off , fo that the roots may get th
benefit of all the nourishment th
ground gives , without having to d

water should bo given tbo roots.
