The constitution of the United States guarantees that no American citlEen shall be arrt-sted and Imprisoned for debt. But— This comforting knowledge often receives a sad jolt when one views the things that a shrewd lawjor can do, within the law the result b,jing that a man who owes money is nr- reited and thrown in jail and liis oniy chance to recover his freedom is ic pay a bill to the man who sworp out the warrant ou whUii he was .irrcsc- • ed on a criminal charge- U is dliT<r- em Jn some ways, but the r»><ul is ^ the same to the citizen a;< thou-.;!! the constitution had been mislaid.

CLDTKER CLpB T.4KES ACTION. H^berslilp Increased , and New \f Qnarfery Decided On. The forman taeetfng of the regular teembers of the Clinker Club was held at the club rooms last night and tlie'.business sc^heduled went through •without a Jar. The honorary mem- l>erp were voted Into full membership and It was decldod to 'appraise the property of the: club and Ulte it over at a fair valuation and assume the ttilUn« .obligation sUnding against it. nie property will be moved to the Haioalc Temple where rooms have botta leased and in the near future tbaxlnbiwin be installed in quarters lu«daomeIy adapted to the bospiullty vUch has won It so favorable a sUnd - inc In tlie ClabI roster of the city. it Is Riniir: Hv.'ry niip of t'lo.-e kiillett; will have Romclhing In Ills stocking, or^liers a.s t!ie case iiiay be. on ("lirlstmas morning. It is perfectly beautiful the way the nig Brothers—and the Big Sisters too —have been coming in today and asking to s.'c that list of youngsters. And they haven't been small about It, either. When they found that In nearly every house on the list there were two or more children, they have "taken on" the whole t ) family. And also, they have undertaken to go personally and look after things, insirad of merely sending by someone else. .And ti;a. is the best thing after all. about this Big Brother move meat. Tho idea is'that when a fellow calls oa a destitute family for the ;iurpoie of linding out what would do the most good in the w^y of Chris.- rua- gifts, he Is llktly to form an interest in them that will not end with with Christmas day, but may continue right along. It Is a fine and beautiful thing to play Santa Claus. to a bunch of wistful and poverty- poundeii children; but it is a whole lot finer and more beautiful thing to give the parents of those children a lift so that next Christmas tney can play Santa themselves; or to put one'.s self In a position to be a Big Brother to those chUdren all the year lound. .And that Is the reason that special note Is made of the fact that in near- every case there was the announced intention to attend to the business personally. To be sure, the entire list has not yet been assigned. There are still some twenty or twenty-five little tots among whom you can have your choice.—if you hurry. But they are going fast. That is the reason the headlines at the top of this article say That what was presented as an appeal yesterday Is offered ara privilege 10;ay. As long as any unassigned names remain upon It the list will be held open. That Is until Saturday morning. After that. If there are still any unassigned there are a few of the •est fellows on earth who are going down Into their pockets ar.d attend to the matter themselves all In a hunch. But If you never tried It you will be amazed to see how It stirs your blood and warms your heart to have a hand n a thing like this. You oughn't to uiss the chance. But you will have to hurry! (By the A.ss.ici !ited Pr.-.<s» Washington, Dec. 21.—President Taft sent another of his promised series of mes.sages to Congress today This tinjc he dealt with currency re- orm Panama Canal tolls and various governmental questions. On the subject of currency reform and In connection with forwarding the report to Congress of the Monetary Commission.

Tiie liumediate establishment of ru .-a! parcels post Is urged. The Presl- lent took the position that parcels post wouldn't destroy the business of the country store keepers. "Instead of this," he said, "1 think the change win greatly inctease business for^he benefit of all. The reduction in the cost of llring It will bring about ought to make its commission certain." The President dealt at length with :he question of whether American shipping should pay tolls In the Panama canal. "I am very confident that he United States has power to relieve from the payment of toU^ny part of •jur shipping that Congress deems .vise '• he said. ^mon? the Pre-iden^'s rccommfn- laticn were the following: Immedi.;e in.-rea.se of two thousand men in he enlisted strength of the navy; a ^ontrihutoiy pension system for government employes; the elimination of all olcal offices from politics, and Increased appropriations for the completion of river and harbor improve- Tueats along the Mississippi.
