What a polite way of saying
The dispatches seem agitated over
the fact that regulars and insurgents
rede together peaceably in the same
sutos at Baldwin, Kan., on the occa
sion of the president's visit. Did
anybody expect them to engage in
fist fights in Mr. Tart's presence, and
that, too, on the Sabbath?
Probing- for Evil.
Wickedness thst hsa to ha unearthed
with a spsde ordinarily ought, to be kept
under the clod that the spade raises.
That Is what President Tsft thinks
of ft. T. Crane s action In employing
detectives to dig under the surface
of student life at large colleges and
universities for misconduct, which
Mr. Crane may use as evidence to
support his widely-published views of
the dissipation of rollege-bred men
and the futility and failure of the
college course. It is something of
an epigram, pungent enough, brief
as it Is, to snuff out the force of
most of the Crane fulmlnatlons.
But the truth of it will do for gen
eral application. Many good men,
in their seal for righteousness and
their contempt for wrong, often in
jure the cause of good and offend
the moral sensibility of tender youth,
by trying to air and expose every
thing they find in the realm of evil
and wickedness on the falso assump
tion that that is the way to cure it.
Many a form of wickedness can be
routed or destroyed by publicity, but
there is a limit beyond which, for the
good of the larger number for the
the safety of the youth of the coun
try, even this method of correction
should not go. That is not saying,
though, that those who know of the
wickedness should turn from it and
,let It thrive unopprcssnd. There
are ways to deal with It without pa
rading It to the world. If vice did
not possess any attraction, boys and
men would .not go into it. For fear
of magnifying the attractive side of
It, sometimes care should be taken
as to how Is was displayed.
The president, however, used this
expression first to show his own
skepticism about the frightful
charges Mr. Crane made against col
lege students, of whom the president
was one for a long time. He is still
In rather intimate official and pri
vate touch with Yale and other such
institutions. He speaks, therefore,
as one having first-hand knowledge
when he assumes to say that the
Crane picture, while not all wrong,
badly overdraws the facts. This, we
believe, is the popular view. It cer
tainly is strengthened by this en
dorsement by the head of the nation.
Our Growth in Figures.
According to figures recently is
sued by the Department of Com
merce and Labor's bureau of statis
tics, the United States haa gained in
population since the 1910 census,
1,988,000 in round numbers, making

figures are correct and they are re
garded as official the United States

prior to 1910. From 1900 to 1910
it made an annual gain of about
1,697,800. So that in'' spite" of "'the
stiffening up of our immigration
laws and the little recession of In
ternational prosperity for the time
being, our growth has gone on upon
a larger percentage, which is quite
The same array of figures put out by
this bureau shows another very inter
esting fact, namely, that as we in
crease in population and national
wealth, resources and revenues, our
per capita public debt and our per
capita interest charges steadily fall
For Instance, in 1865, immediately
on the close of the civil war, our per
capita public debt was $76.98 and
our per capita interest charges
(1866), $4.12, whereas in 1911 our
debt per capita is $10.83 and our in-
erest charges per capita, only 23
cents. It pays to be at peace, both
at home and abroad. Of course, we
know this, but these figures help to
remind us of it and impress the fact
on our minds. x
In the forty-five years that we
have wiped out these heavy burdens
of debt and interest, our nation has
has solved problems affecting ltB
destiny quite as intricate as the one
whose final solution had to be re
ferred to the arbitrament of arms In
1S61. We have really, in that time,
completed our national structure,
having the united powers and patri
otism of all the nation for that work.
Peace, indeed, is the first and great
est asset any nation, especially this
one, can have and we hope to have
it interruptedly from now on. If we
shall, with what prodigious results
we have achieved without thua far
having more than begun to develop
our resources, the extent of our pos
sibilities may be admitted as lyiog
far beyond the limit of any man's
power of prediction.
Now It is proposed to improve the
uniform of the American soldier. It
may be a good thing. The War de
partment has recently made some ex
cellent changes in the code of ethics
of the soldier's life, doing away with
a lot of rules and regulations that.
If ever wise, had served their day,
and substituting new ones calculated
to increase contentment and keep
worthy young men In the army who
have been rapidly leaving it because
of onerous restrictions they would
not meet in any other walk of life.
This at once, without letting down
the standards of military discipline,
invites a higher personnel Into the
ranks of thy privates and makes for
a better line service. If the govern
ment ran see its way clear to dress
these fine young men a little more
like civilians and at the same time
conserve the needs and peculiar de
mands of army life, it will be adding
another valuable feature.
The khaki uniform has proved
quite serviceable, so far as the ma
terial and its color are concerned.
Some of the styles on which the uni
forms are made, however, appear
ridiculous. They are even grotesque.
Of course, Uncle Sam's tailor might
retort that some of the civilian's
styles are as bad without getting
far from the truth, but that should
be all the more reason for the soldier
to lead the way bsck to saner fash
inns. Gold braid and brass buttons
have a certain air of gallantry about
them that appeal to the fascination
and do thoir part toward exalting the
army in the eyes of the public, but,
unfortunately, the man in the ranks
does not sport these habiliments of
official dignity. If he Is to make a
hit, he must have all the benefit that
the tailor's art can give to his plainer
attire. The average soldier Is a well
formed man. A well-formed man
reasonably clad makes a very fair
showing. The trouble is that funnel-shaped
pantaloons and skin-tight
leggings topped with the corset-like
Jacket do not give the man a chance
with his shape.
Where Nebraska's Auto Law Fails.
Nebraska has been experimenting
through every recent legislature
with a revised version of its automo
bile law. The last law is clearly an
improvement on what went before it,
yet is seriously defective In one Im
The registration of motor vehicles,
and display of registry number, is the
key to the whole scheme of regula
tion, for it is the ostensible means of
identifying the machine and its
owner when any of the requirements
of the law are evaded or violated.
The new Nebraska law sets no time
limit for registration to expire, and
no noticeable distinction in the reg
istry number from year to year.
Auto owners applying for registry
numbers are In many cases found to
have neglected to register anew each
year with no penalty except to pay
back fees for two, three or even
five years, no one in the meanwhile
having realized the difference.
Other' states easily avoid, this sort
of trouble by a uniform registry
number furnished only by the officer
charged with the registration, the
color changing annually, so that any
one can tell at a glance whether the
number displayed is for the current
year, and neglect to pay the fee when
due bears its own penalty. The
next Nebraska legislature will have a
chariqe to try again to make our auto
law more workable.

Steps are bring taken to equalize the
enlisted strength of regiments Hatloned
In the I'nlted States. The regiments
whlih formed part of the maneuver
dlvUlon In Texas were augmented to ap
proximately war strength, with the result
that they are still numertrally stronger
than other regiments st hom. With a
view to making the size of regiments
more uniform, no recruits will be as
signed to the stronger regiments tor a
time and some transfers to other regi
ments will be made.
Warrants of Transfer.
It Is held not necessary to issue new
warrants to noncommissioned officers of
the limy who are transferred without
change of grade from one arm of the
service to another. A decision was ren
dered tn 1905 that this rule applied when
a transfer was made within the same arm
of the service, but the question wss re
cently before the War department where
a man waa transferred from the coast
artillery corps to the infantry. The de
partment haa approved the opinion of the
Judge advocate general that the transfer
from one arm to another under such cir
cumstances is no different than a trans
fer within the same arm.
Compl roller's Deciaiou I'roteated.
The War department wUl file a protest
against the decision of the comptroller In
the matter of traveling expenses for civil
ian employes of the army. That decision
refused to allow reimbursement for ex
penses Incurred by a member of the Cler
ical force, except for actual travel per
formed; there was to be no reimburse
ment or allowance when the clerk arrived
at his temporary station. The position of
the War department In the matter Is that
this ia an adminlnratlon quesion, which
rests entirely with the head of the War
department and with which the comp
troller has nothing to do. The accounting
officers, moreover, are now Insisting that
receipts shall be furnished to show every
Ham of expense Incurred by anyone trav
eling under orders. Hitherto It has been
acceptable on some Items to state that
the procurement of a receipt was imprac
ticable. Reimbursement will now be
made only where a receipt la attached to
the account, which requirement will make
it very inconvenient for those who are
sometimes situated so that a receipt Is
difficult to obtain.
The secretary of war haa ordered a
second examination, commencing on Jan
uary 12, 1912, for civilian candidates for
appointment as second lieutenants in the
army to fill vacancies in that grade In
the cavalry, field artillery, coast artillery
and Infantry. A similar examination,
which was commenced in this country on
September 6, la about completed, and ex
aminations of c&ndldatea in the Philip
pines will commence on September 15.
About 304 candidates were authorized to
appear before the examining boards 1S3
for the cavalry, field artillery and In
fantry and US for the coast artillery.
There were about 300. vacancies in the
grade of second lieutenant in the army,
sixty of which were In the coast artil
lery, on Jiine 30, 1911. It is expected that
an unusually large proportion of the 301
civilians authorised to appear for ex
amination will qualify, because 1S6 of
thVrivare graduates "of "rWogrrlzwl ' -rnati-tutlons
of learning, at which offlcera..of
the army are on duty as professors of
military science and tactics and were ex
empted from the preliminary examina
tion. However, at beat, a number of
vacancies will remain after appointment
of the successful candidates, and It is
for this reason that the second examina
tion was decided upon. - -
Punishment for Desertion.
A soldier recently attempted to avoid
the consequences of a court martial for
desertion by claiming the benefit of the
statute of limitations, although he had
served but three months of a three years'
term, had deserted, and waa captured
within ten months, and four months
later had escaped again while awaiting
trial for the first offense. He enlisted
May 21, 1906, and claimed that the statute
began to run from the date his term of
three years expired, and. therefore, he
was not liable to trial after May 21, 1911.
Hla figures seem accurate, but the rea
soning is very poor. The question re
solved itself Into the Interpretation of
the status of the soldier upon his return
to military control aa a deserter and
while in confinement awaiting trial for
that offense, as far as these conditions
might serve to Interrupt the running of
the statute and requiring the service of a
full term. The Judge advocate general
of the army holds that it is absurd to al
low that a service, which admits of so
manv benefits to the deserter in confine
ment and further holds him liable to trial"
by courts martial for acts committed In
such confinement Is not sufficient to In
terrupt the running of the statute of
limitations and preclude a new account

would be allowed to gain advantage by

Visible Remington Models
arc the latest expressions of
Remington leadership. They
represent the sum total of all
typewriter achievement past
They contain every merit
that the Remington has
always had and every
merit that any writing
machine has ever had.
They contain, in addition,
new and fundamental
improvements that no typewriter has ever had- among
them the First Column Selector, the First Built-in
Tabulator and the First Key-Set Tabulator. The Model
1 1 with Wahl Mechanism is also the First Adding and
Subtracting Typewriter. These improvements are the
latest contributions to typewriter progress, and they are
Remington contributions every one.
The Remington, the original pioneer in the fvpewriter
field, is the present day pioneer in all new developments
of the writing machine.
