Our Duty to the Filipino.
Denpite systematic efforts of the administra

of the Jones bill granting Independence to the
Islands, the Impression grows that conditions
there are deteriorating Instead of improving
under the spell of democratic agitation for com

increasing measure of self-government commen

force autonomy on him prematurely, or a dis

contemplates, risks doing him, as well as our
own government, sn Injury rsther than justice.
The advance along lines of health, education,
business and knowledge of government made
by some of these natives under American rule
Is nothing short of a prodigy. Now to withdraw

Without debating the prog and cons of our orig

where they can stand alone.
The Net Betnltt.
By the settlement of the sheriff's accumu
lated bills (be fight against the Jail feeding
graft, uncompromisingly waged by The Bee. has
resulted in cutting down the charge from (0
cents a day to 32 cents' a day, a reduction of 18
cents per prisoner per day.- Computed for the
year on an average of 200 prisoners, this re
duction aggregates an annual saving of f 13,140,
which would otherwise have come out of the
taxpayers' pockets and cone Into the pocket of
the sheriff. Let us recall also that In making
this fight, the only support and active backing
for The Bee's efforts to stop this graft came
from the county board, while the various clvto
organizations looked on merely as spectators,
and our so-called reform newspaper contempo
raries actually endeavored to help the sheriff
get away with the goods.
The Comptroller's Eecommendationi.
. Among the recommendations made by the
comptroller of the currency In his snnual re
port several are likely to evoke a good deal of
. One Is to reserve bank directories for mem
bers who actually direct, eliminating the nomi
nal or strateglo directors, who seldom so much
as attend a meeting of their boards.
Another proposal which, however, Is sure
to be combated by those who object to making
'mere bigness a target. Is tor a law limiting the
deposits of national banks to ten times their
combined espltal and surplus. The nub of the
deposit problem Is safety, and to say that the
safety line Is drawn at ten tlmee the capital and
surplus Is purely arbitrary.
Comptroller Williams disagrees with some
whose business requires the handling of large
quantities of money as to the expediency of the
money-laundering process. He strongly favors
It and wants all signatures on notes and certifi
cates hereafter engraved Instead of written, as
the Ink fades when the money Is washed. Those
who object to the washing say that It makes the
paper limp and difficult to handle, but the
laundry proponents think that all objections are
more then eonnterbalaneed by the sanitary Im
A Sign of Inexperience.
A momentous discovery has been made down
at Lincoln that one member-elect of the state
senate, by his expense account affidavit, admits
having paid out more money than the limit fixed
by lew- This terrible Indictment, It proved,
may subject the culprit to ouster from office.
But still. It may be a matter for argument
whether he should be so punished for telling the
truth Instead of pursuing the usual practice of
making his expense affidavit with mental reser
vations to keep from overstepping the line of
illegality. The only fair Inference to be drawn
Is that any senator who allows himself to get
tangled up in this fashion must be an amateur
wholly Inexperienced In he mazes of the po
litical highways snd byways.
Fashions and Unemployment
And now comes a feminine expert economist
declaring that the whims and vagaries of styles
are largely responsible for the unemployment of
certain workers. Her theory Is that women
who demand new hats, coats, dresses and shoes
each recurring season are the mesas of depriv
ing thousands of men aad women ot work every
year. She explains further by saying that manu
facturers cannot provide steady employment for
their people because they never know until the
last minute what to make.
Perhaps this is sound logic, but It runs
counter of a rather well established view that
exactly the opposite tendency follows milady's
faithful submission to Dame Fashion's arbitrary
demands. Certainly, to the untutored, it would
stand to reaaon that the more changea of atyles,
the more work tor the manufacturers, while, on
the other hand, if women wore the same fash
Ions from season to season, the output at the
makers' naturally would diminish. At least, this
has been the popular Impression. It it is only an
hallucination ot lgaoraace. perhaps, mere man
may have the face to protest harder against foot
ing the bills.
Frank B. Kellogg, who has been held up by
the hosts of Armageddon as one of their Illus
trious heroes, appears In the newspapers of Min
nesota as treasurer ot a new organization, known
as the Republican League of Minnesota, whose
business Is the complete re-lnvlgoratlon of the
G. O. P. In that state, which Is doing its best,
like all the rest, to atone for "helping to put the
democrats In the saddle. '

SOMEONE wsnts to know what 1 rnesn when I
sy that I am to contribute this column "period,

say that I hope to Ulk under this heading at leaat
once or twice a wrek, but that I am not holding
myself to any schedule of fined dsys. If t can con
jure up a desire In anyone to make sure of each ap
pearance. hi will have to keep on the lookout from
daj to day perhaps that Is a reaaon.
Another Inquisitive friend wants to know how I
succeeded In writing so beautifully the heading at
the top. To be, quite frank about It. I didn't. Tho

the writing preferred for catalogue work In libraries,
because of Its plainness and legibility. In the belief
that the library hand would serve my purpose bst.
and nlso lend a little oddMy. 1 went over to the ul
llo library and asked Miss Hammond to copy the
caption for me, but she modestly recommended Mls
Baumer as the more expert In the art. Miss Bau
mer consented to accommodate, but with the assur
ance that the young woman to whom I had flrt
applied In fact ci me nearer to wr1f.r:g a perfect
library hand than anyone else In the establishment.
In saying that the library hand is preferred for
catalogue work, t may have overstated It a trifle.
It waa once so preferred, but now. I believe, a printed
script In used, or, still more often, a typewritten or
typed card. Of course fashions In writing change as
do fashions In other thing. I rememoer that mhen
I went to school, my teachers vainly tried to mold
my scratches Into a "Bpencerlan penmanship," and
later when I put in a brief term at a commercial
college the aim waa to make me Indite a so-called
"business hand." It was all in the slant and the
shading of the down strokes. Subsequently the "ver
tical" handwriting had the call, and then a modifica
tion that permitted of a slight tilt. I would not be
surprised to live to see the day when handwriting
will have become almost a lost art, except for per
sonal signatures, and when all our manuscripts and
written communications will bo either typewritten,
phonographed or Just talked ever the wire.
While on the topic of handwriting, let me recall
a schoolday incident when I turned in an essay to
my teacher of rhetoric at the High school, a younii
woman who herself wrote In near-hleroglyphlcs, and
had It returned bearing the Inscription, "Composi
tion excellent; chlrography miserable." I went to her
at once and Impertinently asked, "Will you kindly
tell me what you have written on my essay?" She
didn't see the joke, but, fortunately for me, the prin
cipal to whom she sent me did.
Doing to funerals la always depressing, and par
ticipating In the last sad rites over Frank I. El lick
must have made everyone there pause and ponder on
the awlftnesa with which comes the transformation
from warm, virile, pulsating life to the cold. Inert,
emptiness that ends all on this earth. For many
months I was closely associated with Elllck as a co
laborer on the Workmen's Compensation commission
named by Governor Aldrlch to investigate and repot t
on the whole subject, and submit a draft of a com
pensation bill If our conclusions favored the project.
At that time Elllck waa a veritable steam-engine of
human enrgy. Whatever he took up, he went at
with a vim that left no doubt as to his confidence
In its successful outcome, and In this he fumishel
an enthusiasm that more than once saved a dubious
situation. In his own field of business activity he
waa wrapped up In what is known as "the cost
system" of figuring printing jobs, and "the coat
system" literally exuded from Eillck's ' system. He
waa summonded all over the country as a lecturer to
demonstrate the plan, and he had It down to a fine
point with wall charts, blank forms, etc. In every
commercial or social organisation with which he
waa connected he was not only "a live wire." but
ready to sespond with alacrity and good spirit to
every demand for Ms help.

A. T. Robertson, A. M., D. D., professor
In the Southern Baptist Theological sem
inary of Louisville, writing that excellent
book of his, "Epochs In the Life of Paul,"
under date of IMS, says, referring to
Paul's part In the persecutions:
The question Is raised at once whether
Paul himself was a member of the San
hedrtn. If one takes the language used
by htm In Acta xxvl:lS ("I give my vote
aalnst them "), literally, then, he was,
of course, a member of this august body.
It must be confessed that this is the obvi
ous and natural way to take the lan
guage. There exist, so far as I know,
no real obstacle In the way of such a
fact' J1 WM voung and yet he was prob
ably 30. If he had to be married, as was
the custom (to belong to the Banhedrln),
we have no evidence to the contrary. Hla
unmarried state later (I Corinthians vll:s)
can be explained just as welt on the
ground that be waa a widower. .
Mathew Henry has been quoted as an
authority for more than two centuries
and he, too, faila to share Brother Mo
raine's dogmatism on thla question. He,
Ilka most other profound biblical scholars
and writers, leaves the matter of Paul'a
bachelorhood unsettled, for the want of
conclusive evidence. The pasaagea our
friend cites which every Bible student
know almost by heart come so far from
proving It as to leave the whole question
just where these theologians and com
mentators leave It. In these chapters
Paul la uader tood to be telling the Corin
thians of the great advantages, not so
much of continued celibacy, as of tempo

waa not pretending to aay that marriage
In Itself was alnful, but simply that mar.

church's career might be Inexpedient and
