standing reproach of the laws delay The departure from the old custom of practically unlimited time for argument is hot pleasing to the lawyer element judging from the circumstance that the legal gentleman who first faced the court wanted to know if he was the first victim of the short - time regulation Though the lawyers may demur their clients have cause for rejoicing Until now the time between thQ filing oi la Suit ano the hearing thereof was about three years an unconscionable period in tb6 opinion of everybody except counsel at the bar Just how1 much tlmeywlil be saved by the new process cannot be seen until the docket has been reduced to - qr mal proportions There are bfbri - ih court a larger - number of cases calling for extended argument and consideration and bu for jthe new rule the - great desire of the Judges io hasten litigation would hardly bBtealized r Another dfag on the court la the filing of appeals from the lower courts in cases which are nonappealable Many of these come from the several State supreme courts on the ground that ft constitutional question is Involved These do not come up for hearing lt - Jis true but It takes much time to ascertain iSelf proper status Naturally it would be thought that the learned counsel in tHese cases would have familiarized themselves with the Constitution to the extent of being able to Judge whether the Supreme Court was likely to allow ah appeal That the contrary is true was strikingly illustrated at Mondays sitting of the higljest tribunal when Sj out of 100 apr peaJs were disallowed on the ground that they had no standing many of them for the reason that - no constitutional question was Involved The college course In constitutional law would seem to be lacking in the essentials Letting Bryp pbVrpEasy 5 President Taff charlifably ialemisiSes Bryans charge of a packed Supreme Court In the trust cases by saying - thit theman who makes the accusaflohadks the perception to understand the weight of the charge That is Bryan falls to comprehend that he is offering a gratuitous Insult to the President and the Supreme Court otherwise Bryan WQUldvnot have Bald it Public opinion will hardly nod assent to the Presidents disposition to let Bryan down easy tVlilie people are f so accustomed to Bryan getting up and denouncing somebody op something on insufficient grounds that his words fail to convey a lasting impression yet his wanton and vicious attack on President and court calls for a lot more than mere denial and charitable inference Others have overstepped the bounds 6f fairness and decency but Bryans offense is rankest of all For another thing if President Tafts mild castigatlpn id to go as the measure of Bryans piinjshment It couid be said with equal pertinence that he - has been wrongheaded on other points of the con troversy Bryan started out by declaring that the Supreme Court interpretation of the SKerman law made It impossible to put an end to conspiracy in restraint of trade Challenged by the President - to point out a jsipgle trust the law - could notv reach Bryan cduld not name one Was It not lack of perception of the law that caused him to take the untenable position from which the President 60 quickly dtsloidged him Nor would a1 wise man seeing that he was in a hole go to work - and blindly dig it deeper as Bryan did wien he shifted ground and assailed the integrity of the President and the Judges Expansion of the Navyf On the list day 5f this month the Secretary ojf thg fTavy will lnjspect the Atfantlc fleet at New York One hundred and twd vessels will be rfviewed They comprise battleships armored cruisers cruisers de stroyers lorpeSoboats submarines ten -

Pacific Which the Freemans Journal thinks is - the ambition of W United States The journal suggests that the growth of populous republics in South and Central America following the development of the new interoceanic trade route wlli have a tendericy to coinplicate the relations between the strong powers of Europe and Latin America which will force the United States to maintain a powerful navy able to cope with any situation that might arise In the enforcement of the Monroe doctrine It is admitted by Arnericans that they greatly desire the expansionj of tne merchant marine and various plans are now crystallising to that end If the restoration ot4he Jftnerican fiagto the jseas 4iearisiI increase pf the navy for ne proiecuoBoi ineiiagi we bvj wm be increased without doubt although there is not any general demand at present for a biggeHpiavy But the canal was constructed for the benefit of the United States and the people are ready to bear the burden of commercial growth They are comrjelled Indeed to expand their foreign commerce as the surpius Of manufactured products increases and they are not deterred by the tjrospect that navat expansion must follow The fleet tobe reviewed by Secretary Meyer is therefore after all but the forerunner of a mlghtiemavy that will Insure the protection of American interests in whatever portion of the globe they may lie mayor orpine subject the startling Jnforj matton uYbg whlspVred thafltlMes nearly WOtfWbfthe fl9M00W eel thfe charges on ths billion Hollar city debt Here again atonvarlsonDetween the metropolis and the Capital Is lilujnlnating What WeVlTor milpay out ion laierest account Inne year would keepTVttshlng -

These are called the melancholy days They are worthy of a sturdier name The gloom and despondency reside In man rather than in his surroundings There is no mawklshness In nature The appeal of autumnal out of doors is heartening and -

loss of the little toe will be that the men will have to suffer for the folly and the Vanity of the women continued br Bergman It will take generations to bring about this change in the anatomy of the foot bUt It is coming In fact it is already in progress The toes of American women are cramped out of their normal shape One year they Wear high heels the next low Some seasons their toes are pinched by shoes narrowing In front to a point and others shoved upward or sideways by shoes that represent the changing styles The only way to save the little toes of the future generations is to Start - women In American wearing sandals The women of Rome and Greece in the days of the empire had beautiful feet That 16 because they - wore sandals In France and China woriien hayS worn smali shoes for many generations The women of both nations have but a stub of boneless flesh for a toe They are almost clubfooted and if they were put In Bandals thev would totter like a tall building In arf earthquake American women Jiive a chance to save their toes If they will The men owe It to the men 1000 years from now to see that they stop pinching their feet A Seaport for Arizona From the Chicago Inter Ocean Travelers returning from Arizona tell of a startling yet natural aspiration that has arisen among the people ot that half -
