' ""Society suffers from dements srttteh are unstable, erratic, shiftless and Inefficient.

They fill the poor houses, the prisons, the asylums and slums. They produce and reproduce their kind and bring about a feeling of social unrest which Is growing In this complex age. Failure of Home. "A failure on the part' of the home to exercise even and forceful discipline is a moral sin which has put the curse of Cain and the stamp of Satan upon many a promising boy or girl. "When we realize the baneful working of uneven discipline growing out of weak willed, Inefficient parental government, we stand In the presence of a great problem. How can we Impress father and mothers and teachers with the Idea that weak and vacillating government of children blasts their lives and makes them candidates for the ranks of the ignoble?" Miss Olive Jones of New Tork City was of the opinion that the care of delinquents Is a civic duty rather than a school prob lem. F. C.

INCOME TAX VOTE ON MONDAY Senator Brown' of Nebraska Saeceeda la Having Time Fixed Waa ta It Acted na Wlthoat Delay. WASHINGTON, July I.-The maximum and minimum provisions of the tariff bill were adopted by the senate today by a vote of 36 to It. The final action on this amend ment came at the close of a day devoted to a lively discussion of the proposed re taliatory measure, that brought out a great variety of views as to the advisability of enacting surh legislation. The provisions of this measure will go Into effect March n, 1910, and ninety days must elapse before president's proclamation applying the maximum duty of 25 per cent ad valorem. In addition to other duties provided In the bill, will be operative. The duty on tea and coffee, as provided i the amendment originally reported by the committee, was, stricken out with the assent of the finance committee,. The sen ate also, agreed to vote on the submission of an Income tax amendment to the sev eral states for ratification, this vote to be taken upon the resolution and all amend ments next Monday at 1 o'clock. laeome Tax Monday. The Income tax question was brought up promptly In the senate today and an agree ment was reached to vote at 1 o'clock Mon day afternoon on Senator Brown's resolu tion providing for the submission to the states of an amendment to the constitu tion authorising the Imposition of an In come tax. This agreement Is equivalent to a declara tion that the senate will proceed with Its business on the fifth of July, despite the observance of the holiday everywhere else. The senators were slow In gathering to day, and much time was consumed In ac quiring a quorum. Senator Aldrlch was In his seat at the beginning of the session, but most of the leaders of the fight against his corporation tax amendment were not so prompt In attendance. Aa soon as the routine business permitted, Mr. Aldrlch called up the tariff bill, but before any progress could be made. Senator Brown took the floor to press his Income tax proposition. He asked that a vote be taken Immediately, but encountered opposition from various quarters, Senator McLaurlo being especially antagonistic. After con siderable debate, the Nebraska senator agreed to postpone action and presented the oroDosltlon for a vote on Monday There was no especial objection, and the vote was accordingly ordered. Brown l'ra-ea Haste. Mr. Brown urged Immediate action, es peclally because, as he said. It should reach k. hnM hefnra the tar II Dill is laaon back to that body. Senator McLaurln said he saw no ne cessity for such an an.enomeni, wrwn would defer the enactment of an .Income tax law. He thought probably pne-fourth of the states would decline io ratify this ctlon by congress, and argued that there after when suoh legislation was sougni the failure of the states to ratify the amendment wouiq o uco men ngalnst It ' ' ..' As soon as the agreement to vote was mde the tariff bill Wis" take'tr'' uD'antJ-'Mr. Aldrlch presented his 'maximum' ana mini mum rate amendment. Mr. Aldrlch Immediately proceeded to sxmal;i ' the senate's substitute for the origlnafVn'aifm'ilm arid mlnlmifm provision of the bill as It passed, the house. ,. The house provides' for a specified Increase jof the ratec of duty , on .nuraerous articles fixed by the-, bill, ni ease- of the failure of ;-the country from which any given article should' come- to grant to- the Im ports from the United States the same terms given 'to Importations from the most favored nations. : t. The senate- committee, on finance pre sented a complete substitute proyidlng for an Increase of 25 per cent over the rates of the Payne-Aldrlch bill against coun tries which by export bounty or otherwise discriminate against the United States. The amendment provided that the ad ditional rate should go Into effect Imme diately unless the president should after March 31. 1910, Issue a proclamation that no such discrimination exists. Contain Discriminative Dnty. The amendment also provided a duty of 5 cents a pound on coffee and 10 rents a pound on tea coming from the countries thus discriminating against' the product of the United States. The measure as previously reported by the finance com mittee was further amended to except the islands of Guam and Tutulla, as well the Philippines, from Its operation. Stating that he regarded this provision as Ihe most Important part of the tariff bill, Mr. Aldrlch read a statement showing the maximum snd minimum laws of other countries. lnce that ststement was pre pared, he ssld, France had adopted rates that varied on an average of 60 per cent. Moving to strike from the amendment the maximum tariff On tea. Senator Daniel criticised the proposed legislation as au thorizing the president to make treaties with foreign powers without submitting them to the senate. "When this amendment is agreed to," he said, "the senate Is eliminated as a treaty making power, so fsr aa these commercial matters are concerned. It la becoming more and more common to eliminate the senate from the exercise of Its powers." Daniel Amendment A greed To. Senators Nelson, Curtis and Root, speak Ing In favor of the elimination of the duty on tea and coffee, Mr. Daniel's amendment to strike out that provision was accepted by Mr. Aldrlch and agreed to. Senator Aldrlch agreed with Mr. Root that there was no necanslty to ho)d a club ovef The countries that export these articles to the United States. Senator Culberson offered an amendment to make nonpartisan - the appointment of the tariff commission and to pay the mem bers salaries of g7.6O0 annually. Mr. Aid rich said experts were to be selected and he did not believe politics would be con sidered by the president In that connection "From the morning pspers," said Mr. Bailey, "the director of the census Is making his appointments for partisan rea sons. If that ia true it is the first time .It Jias been done In the history ; of this country." In view of the report he said he would not trust the executive author ity to make the appointments without some restriction. Mr. Aldrlch said he did not believe census appointments were be ing msde for political reasons. "I know the president of. the United States too well," he ald. "to believe h would permit anything of that kind." Ierlarln the trei-d of the times was toward nonpartlranehip, Mr. Root said the very . purpose sought by the Texas senator would be' defeated by dividing these appointments between republicans and democrats. He pointed to the record of the president as a guarantee that he would not be Influenced by partisan mo tives. "We arc untied In our esteem for the president" said Mr. Money, "but under the dispensation of Providence he might die. and -we might have a bad man like the presiding officer of the senate and he might make" partisan appointments." Money Jabs at Aldrlch. , , Vice President Sherman Joined In the smile that became general as the Missis sippi senator proceeded to show the temp tation of men to make appointments with a partisan bias. "There Is the chairman of the finance committee," Mr. Money added. "He has never been charged with being anybody's good Sunday school boy. He has never been shot at as an angel." Mr. Money further declared that he un derstood the postmaster general was to appoint tho census supervisors, and re ferring to Mr. Hitchcock he continued: "Whatever that distinguished gentleman may be doing, I ha,ve never been able to una mm in the Postofrice department. I have called four or five times to see him and I have never been able to find him. -My experience Is the common experience on this side of the house. I suppose his political cares are so engrossing that he has not time to attend to the duties of the department he Is called to preside over." The discussion of Mr. Culberson's Amend ment was Incidental and when It was con cluded the controversy over the minimum and maximum provision was renewed. Says Maslinam Will Prevail. Senator Shlvely discussed the subject at length, declaring that the maximum rate would be the real tariff. The senate fell Into a discussion of the reasons for the failure of the senate to ratify the reciproc ity treaties negotiated under the Dlngley law. Mr. Aldrlch contended the treaties had not. been acted on because a majority of the senate .was against them. He ad mitted his opposition to the treaties and said no one act of his public life had given him as much satisfaction as his course in that matter. By a vote of 17 to 48 the amendment of fered by Mr. Culberson was rejected, Mr. La Follette being the only republican who voted with the democrats. The amendment limited to four the - number of members of any one party whloh might be appointed experts to advise the president In the matter of discrimination by other countries. An amendment by Mr. Gore, substituting the provision of the Dlngley act authoriz ing the negation of reciprocity treaties for the maximum and minimum clause, was defeated, 16 to 39. An amendment by Mr. Dolllver, author-li ng the appointment by the president of a customs commission consisting of five members, with extended authority for gath ering Information concerning domestic and foreign prices and various matters affect ing the cost of production In lieu of the experts authorized by the finance commit tee's amendment, was voted down, 23 to 28. Mr. Dolllver said his commission would have power to make the tariff rates equal to the difference in the cost of production In tho United States and abroad. The time had come, he contended, to provide for -tariff revision on the scientific plans that have boen adopted by other great powers. He would like to create:, a com mission that would "measure up"' with the Interstate Commerce commission In ability to look after foreign commerce as their Interstate commission looks after In ternal commerce. Mr. Heyburn offered, and Mr. Aldrlch -accopted for the finance committee, an amendment requiring ninety days' notice for the application of the maximum rate .after the minimum rate has been . In force. In presenting the amendment Mr. Heyburn expressed apprehension that as It stood the provision would cause unrest. Aldrleh Cites Dleorlmlnatlon, -, This criticism brought Mr. Aldrich to hlb feet with a recital of .diHcrlmlnatlona that have been practiced by foreign gov ernments against the United . States. France, he said, had Imposed Its maximum tariff against the United States and against no one else. Germany had im posed various restrictions upon American meat and other products and about a dosen other nations had maximum and minimum laws. It waa to protect the American pro ducers that this provision had been framed. Senator Eacnn, approving the Idea, of a retaliatory provision, said he thought the method employed should be reversed. The duties should be fixed, he said, with power for the president to increase a rate If this country Is discriminated against. " Mr. Cummins suggested a substitute fix ing a penalty of 25 per cent of the exit ing duty Instead of 25 per cent ad valorem on countries Discriminating against tho United States, but It was voted down, viva voce. The vote being taken on the maximum and minimum provision It was adopted, 36 to 18. Drainage Chief Comes to Nebraska C. 0.

PARIS, July 3The annual Fourth of July dinner of the American Chamber of Commerce at the Hotel Talals IVOrsay to night was exceptionally brilliant. Laurence V. Bcnet president of the chamber, pre sided and covers were laid for mo, among whom were many visiting Americans. The guests of honor Included the American am bassador, Henry White, M. Barthou. min ister of public works: Jacob O. Sch urrrmn president of Cornell university and Patrick I Murphy. Ambassador White, who waa given an ovation, delivered the principal speech, his iertrence to the aid rendered by France in achieving American Independence, and the Increased American prosperity, under resident Taft. calling forth salvos of applause. His most Important utterances constituted an official assurance, addressed niitctiy to Minister Barthou, that the American tariff revision, contrary to the inea prevailing here, was In no wise aimed at France. The ambassador explained that n.. United States, like other countries, In an age of Dreadnoughts and constantly augu- menunK expenses, needed additional reve nue, and, like other popular governments. oesired that the Inoreased taxation should fall on those best able to pay It. tte pointed out that France enjoyed al Rloh Will etl Purchase. ' most a monopoly In articles of luxury ex- ! ported to the United States for the use of the well-to-do, and - these people would still pure-hone regardless of price. On the other hand a slight augtimentation In the price of necessities would reduce consump tion. As the primary object was the In crease of revenue, congress, he said, did not desire to arise tho rate of luxuries to point where Importation from France would be arrested or diminished. He fur ther called attention to the Immense quan tity of French purchases, running Into the millions, which did not appear In the sta tistics. Those brought little Into the United States"treasury, because they were brought back in the trunks of tourists. "I do not claim," said the ambassador, "that In revising the tariff our first pre occupation Is to safeguard the Interests of France or any other Sureign country, but I do insist that the contrary is not true." Commerce Will Adjust Itaelf. After pointing out that the final rate to be retained would be adjusted In con ference, he concluded by saying: 'I am convinced that when our revision has been completed the commerce of the two countries will reciprocally adjust It self as it has always done heretofore. In the meantime I hope that the friendship of 131 years, which has been so advantageous to France and to' the United States and to the peace of the world, will not be chilled by groundless fears that the forth coming and pending American revision Is hostile- to .. French -exportation." ; M. Marthou, after paying a . tribute to the United. States. and President Taft,. re called former President Roosevelt's words to M. Jussersand, the French ambassa dor: "I can imagine war with, any other country except France," as an eloquent expression of the deep and underlying friendship between the two countries. The minister said that France could only await the consummation of 'the, American tariff with some apprehension, which ' perhaps must be felt on the other, because both countries are ultra-protectionists. "There Is good ground, however," con tinued the minister, "for equitable and reciprocal concessions. What we ask Is not a sacrifice, but only a conciliation of our Interests. We cannot consider the hy pothesis of rupture." Less Enthualnam for Liberty. President Schurman, In a thoughtful speech, warned his hearers that there was less enthusiasm for liberty and the rights of man In tho United States and Europe now than there was a generation ago. Ex perience had brought dlfcllluslon. "Under popular government, as well as under monarchies," he said, "man must toll and sweat. Poverty stalks abroad. crime flourishes; the discontented clamor for revolution In the hope of the new Elyslam. Beneath all lies the forces of anarchism and barbarism. "The laws todny seem less concerned about civil and political liberty than about territorial expansion and colossal armies and navies, yet they cannot extinguish the yearning for democratic equality, and socialism is the Nemesis of outraged Ideal- Ism against triumphal materialism." Nevertheless, President 8ehurman' viewed with great satisfaction the conditions In the United States, which had not escaped the conditions of the age, but remained true to the purposes of the Declaration of Independence. He considered natural condi tions -in the United States and the virtue of the people largely responsible for this, but these very conditions, he declared, were the source of the great national danger. Boosts Bls Business. "We have dedicated ourselves," he said, to the exploitation of our resources with an energy so lrreslstable that It would not brook the restraints of law and morality.

PAINLESS DENTISTRY By Dr. Fickes ' The above heading smacks atrongly of the worst form of Charlatanism and Quackery, for It appeals directly" to the pet aversion of the human race, None of us like to be hurt. This Is doubly true If our teeth are sensitive, All dentists know this and those who are unscrupulous or lacking In ability brazenly promise Immunity from ptoln, only to shamefully hurt the credul ous psttents and Irreparably ruin mouths by their Ignorance and unsan itary methods. Now painlessness In dentistry is practicable but It requires science, equipment, time, carefulness and In nate sympathy.
