The Pendulum of Politic.
Kaaaas City i realising that poli
tics is largely a pendulum that con
tinue to swing back and forth. The
recent change from a reform repub
lican mayor to a reactionary demo
crat apparently definee a wide sweep.
Tbe former administration wax
characterized by a aumoer of nota
bly progressive policies, ona of which
was the Introduction of a civil serv
ice board to employ all tbe city's noo-
elective officials. Only tbe merit
system, in theory at least, governed
their acceptability. And apparently
this board has given eminent satis
faction, but tbe board goea out of
office only a little while after tbe
new mayor enter and goea at bia
request. He then, according to re
port, revert to the old spoils sys
tem of naming hi own appointee.
And a number of similarly reaction
ary changes have come about under
the new administration.
Yet It was the people who rejected
tbe reform mayor when tbey bad tbe
opportunity of returning bits to of
fice. Evidently, good aa hi admln
tatratloa had been, tbe majority of
the voter did not care to give It
their endorsement for another tens
ol office. Reform, after all, 1 an
uncertain quantity. Tbe same peo
ple who tire or tbe old system also
tire. It I aeea, of tha new and they
get what they vote for. Tba pendu
lum of politics continue to awing
back and forth, and what la progress
today may be rejected aa reactionary
tomorrow. Let the people rule.
The Biihopt and the JUakg.
It aoem remarkable that In tbia
contest over the amusement rata in
tha Metbodlat eonfereoce tbe bishops
should appear as tha progressives
and the rank and (II of laity and
clergy aa tba eta ad patters. Yet the
church, aa compared with Ita fouader,
John Wesley, ha always taken tbe
stand pat position, preferring a hard
and fait rale defining tbe amuse
ments Its members might Indulge in.
Instead of Wesley'a broader plan of
leaving tba matter to tba Individual
conscience. The bishop Insist on
adopting tba Wesley principle, la
which, no doubt, the bishop have the
sympathy of a large part of society
at Urge, church and otherwise.
Not the happiest feeling appar
ently exists between the prelate and
delegates In this conference This
aeema to crop out In the determina
tion to deny extra feea to the bishops
for lecture and sermons tbey may
give outside of their regular office
routlae. Soma good reason are urged
tn support of this objection, too. One
1 that weaker church e might be de
nied the Inspiration of the bishops'
presence If the fee system I te 00A
tain, and another It that a bishop's
sslary of 15.000, In comparison with
tba average pastor' salary, should
be sufficient, anyway.
' On one Issue yet to be threshed
out at Minneapolis, tbe bishop have
taken the reactionary position,
nsmely, In their recommendation to
return to the old rule of limiting a
pistorate to five years. It seemed
like a great step forward whea tha
Methodist church removed tbe time
limit at a previous conference and
now to return to the obsolete and aa
businesslike method would. Indeed,
be reactionary. Efficiency of service
Id other walk of life i not beet
conserved or promoted by frequent
rhsnges, and why and how, la this
particular, Is the ministry any differ
eut from the world? For the devel
opment of carefully-laid plana, a
minister, ordinarily, must bsv more
than five year. But the bishop
might argue this, that the average
minister la most church ee doe not
hold his pastorate much. If aay,
longer than five year.
Tennessee Coal and Int.

Heaoinsr the Whirlwind.
Emma Goldman, the "queen of the
anirchlit, and her press agent,
have gone np and down tbe land for
years sowing to tba wind and now
they seem to have reaped a little of
tbe whirlwind In San Diego, from
which city both are expelled, the
man Reitman, artistically attired ia
a heavy coat of tar and feathers.
Tarring and feathering is rather a
harsh handling, and yet if It le ap
plicable to anyone It would seem to
be to that mis who presence sub
version of law aad order, who damn
th government and exalts anarchy
all for a price, er for any ether rea
son. Which la tbe more violent after
all, thla treatment of aa anirchlit or
hi treatment of society?
What irony for this looee-tongued
woman aad her unbridled traveling
companion, who mak their living
denouncing government, to cry out
at society for visiting upon them but
a mild sample of tba disorder tbst
would obtain if tbe logic of their in-
cendlsry speeches gslned recognition.
They denounce the perpetrators of
(be deed, a community where saob
things ess be practiced with Impun
ity and tha law officers for coun
tenancing it, yet all of these In turn
pas daily under tbe venomous lash
of their reckless tenguee; Indeed, It
Is their stock In trade.
It I such Incendlarlim that bu
preceded th Haymarket riots, tbe
assassination of a president, tbe
desecration of th nag. Without con
doning wbat haa been done to tbe
Goldman woman'a consort, ona can
but regard it aa tba Just expression
of aa outraged public patience.

mot Is four years, sa It is in the navy,
but the enlistment period which govern
tha pay of enlisted men In the marine
corps Is three years, the same as It Is
In th army. This apparent Inconsistency
is due to th fact that th marine corps
Is entitled under the law ta the benefit
ot all the statutes relating te the pay of
tha army. The difference In the term ot

marine corps under some circumstances
can operate te the detriment ot a marie.
