BMi Th)i>ught for Today ETEBN, 'iAL LtFE: Thou siiatt love the Lord thy pod with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself. This do, and thou khalt live.—Luke 10:27, 28. SHAW—OUTCAST. That is what he deserves to be in every circle where decent, self-respecting, civilized people are assembled.—an outdast. We have reference, of course, to George Bernard Shaw, the Irish- English author and play-wright. For many years Mr. Shaw has been a moral and | intellectual pest. His blatant egctistn, his brutal disregard of the feelings of other people, his lack of any mpral sense, and particularly his sewer-rat. assaults upon Americans ami everything American, haye been enough to set him outside the pale. Bi^t now I.he climax has been reached. Recently in London Shaw was Btaymg it the home of Lady Astor and the latter invited Helen Keller to coiiie there and meet him, —Helen Keller, the one woman in all the world who.should command the chivalrous respect of every decent man. Miss I^eller was a warm admirer of Mr. Shaw and she looked forward ib iheeting him with the greatest eagerness. And what happened? Here it is as reported by Miss Keller herself; "I held out my hand. He took it Indifferently. I could scarcely believe my sensations. Here was a hand bristling with egotism as a Scotch thistle with thorns. It was not the sort of hand that one would associate with the compassionate Interpreter of Joan of Arc. "I am so happy to meet you," I said inanely. "I've wanted to know you for ever so long." "Why do all you Americans say the same thing?" he taunted. "Why do you hate us Americans' so?" I murinured. "I don't.hate you," he answered. Mrs. Macy's hand gave me the Inflection of his voice, which Implied that • Americans could never rise to the level of his contempt. "Then why don't you come to America?" I asked. "Why should I? All America comes to see me." Lady Asior laid her hand on his arm and shook it a little, as if he were a child behaving badly before company. "Shaw," she said, "don't you rqalize that this is Helen Keller? She Is deaf and blind." His answer must have shocked everybody; ;but a few momei^ts passed before i knew what it was. A quiver ran through Mrs. Macy's hand —I was shiit off from the scene, and I.stood wondering and waiting. Then slowly Mrs.iMacy spelled tio me what Mr. Shaw had said: "Why, of ccmrse!. All Americans are deaf arid blind^and dumb." Could anything be more inhumanly brutal than such a reply to such a woman?- Mr. Shaw will travel across Amelrica soon in the course of a journey round the world. When he comes ah Americans. In their relations to him, should he deaf and blind and dumb. A member of Congress told the House the other day that he had carefully figured it all out and that the differerice in a glass of beer between 3.2 per cent and 3.<» per cent beer was ecjualto one dropyOf alcohol. And yet!the Senate adopted 3.05 per ceiit beer because a British commission had lately reported that beer with that alcoholic content is not intoxicating while beer with 3.2 per cent alcohol is intoxicating. Getting things down to a pretty fine point when; the addition of a single drop of aicohol to his dram will make a sob^r man drunk. A New Yprk syndicate is offering to the newtQ}ap6rs of the country, at so much per, a scries of articles on "My Boy pranklin" by the mother of the Preilident. The daughter of the President has entered into a contract with bijoadcasting company who will use her as a feature in commercial advertising. A New York publisher iS: advertising a new bopk by the Preisident entitled "Looking Forward," jUst placed on the market. It carmot be said the Roocevelts we not making: hay this fine spring weather. t DONT GIVE AWAY YOUE EQUITY. Those who ^tened in on a radio address recently given by Speaker Bainey; of the House of Representative, gained the impression that it is the purpose of the new Administration to endeavor to work put some plan whereby the government could in effect take over farm mortgages that are overdue from the banks and insurance companies that now own them and renew them on longer time and at lower rate of interest. Whether Speaker Rainey gave this assiu'ance or not, there has been con­ siderable'talk about such a plan and it is conceivable it might be put Into effect. In this connection comes a report that a Topeka concern is gathering information as to the names of farm ovmers whose property has been or is about to be foreclosed, bf course there may be many reasons why such informations might be desired. One of those reasons might be the tliought on the part of the concern gathering the information that there is probability enough of the government making arrangements for the renewal of mortgages to make the ownership of the equity in such mortgages a good gamble. If by any chance this should be the thought behind this rather unusual line of inquiry, then it is no more than prudent for those who may be offered a chip or a whetstone for their equity to be in np hurry about accepting it. S WETS TOO SMART. The Joke seems to be on the Missouri wets. When the legislature first convened they hastened to make the way straight for the return of beer by enacting a law that would place no restrictions upon its sale. They wanted everybody to be able to sell it, and so they provided that— '•No county or municipality in this state shall impose any tax on the holder of any permit authorized by this article, for sale of nohintoxicat- ing beer within its borders. No municipal corporation shall Increase any occupation tax which it now levies, upon any holder of such permit over the amount of such tax imposed upon merchants and dealers in the same or similar lines of business, and not holding any such permit." Now that beer is really here, or will be in a few days, many cities and coimties, remembering the easy money they used to get out of the saloons, would like to impose a tax upon its sale, but they find the way barred by the foregoing statute. THE FINANCUL GIANT Kansas has scored again in the appointment of "Joe*,' Burkholder as superintendent of construction for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. This $220,000,000 project includes building a 320- mile aqueduct and with the exception of the Hoover dam is by odds the largest undertaking now under way in the country. From the to\vn of Parker on the Colorado river to the Los Angeles area will run the great water line, through valley and mountain, a series of concrete-lined open canals, concrete conduits, concrete lined tunnels and concrete tunnels. It is estimated it will take seven years to complete the great project. Mr, Burkholder is a graduate of the University of Kansas, class of 1908. If all the stories that are going around about it are true the Veterans' Legislative Cpmmittee at Washington needs looking after. One story is that while the economy bill was pending, giving the President dictatorial powers In the matter of purging the veteran pension roll, the Washington lobby sent telegrams to every Legion Post in the country calling upon It to wire Congressmen demanding they vote against the bill. Another story is that after the bill was passed this-same lobby wired these same Legions posts calling upon them to telegraph President Roosevelt pledging their support in whatever be might undertake to do in the line of cutting Veteran Bureau expense. From Other Papers Decent Treatment Demanded. Topeka State Journal: /^n elderly woman sat In a Kansas courtroom a lew days ago and detailed this story of her treatment In the "investigation" of a fire in her home: She appeared, upon call, at the Kansas City (Kas.) fire headquarters at 10 o'clock In the momtag. She was questioned continually until between 4 and 5 o'clock the next morning. SIhe was kept without food or water. Becoming 111,1 she asked for a physician but was not permitted to call one. At one time the deputy fire marshal who was questioning her twisted her arm. She was told that if sh^ would sign .a statement admitting she helped to her home that would end the case, otherwise she would be ^nt to the penitentiary twenty-one years. She was told she had to make a confession. She was denied even permission to retire to a rest room. Under such circumstances she signed "something." Her plea to a charge of arson is not guilty and the report of the trial in the Kansas City Star says the state bases its case entirely upon the confession the woman says was obtained In that manner. The depiity in'question denies her story. Kansans, however, have not forgotten the Oberst case, at El Dorado a few years ago in which the activities of a deputy fire marehal complicated matters until either justice was (heated or irreparable dam,age was done a youth.j Persons tn orher^ communities have reported m >n\. 1 . I ! r glimpses of at least questionable activities directed from the fire marshal's office. _ There is no place in Kansas for such methods. Officials in charge will save themselves trouble if they will recognize that at once. The office exists merely upon the sufferance of the people. Its record Includes political activities which have been the subject of rumor and unfavorable comment—. -• ' Not only is it tiifirto abolish the office as it has existed In the past in the Interest of economy, but It Is high tilne whoever is to do the work in the future is given to understand that decent treatment is demanded for persons unfortunate enough to suffer losses by fire.

To The Register .; Previous to January 1, 1B79 there was no definite national policy as to how the paper money in circulation whs redeemable. Consequently the value was rather problematical: Congress therefore enacted the Specie Resumption act requiring the tj-eas- wry to redeem all paper money . in coin (either gold or silver i whenipre- sented for redemption- Up to;thi.s time all redemptions had been made in gold, but it was a possibility ;that the treasury might redeem in silver. This was considered unsafe on] the theory that it was unwise for- our currency to be based on more than one metal. To avoid this Insecurity a new act was passM in 1900.:callod the Gold Standard iict, which provided: PiKst: That the gold dollar shall be the standard unit of; vslue und that all fonns o^ money 'issued or coined shall be kfcpt "on a parity o? value" with gold. Second, that United States notes and all. nptes issued or to be; issued shall be; redeemable in gold coin and that a fund at $150,000,000 in gold he. set apart fpr that purpose. This .W4s n pledge on the part Of. the government that every dollar" in paper and sijver shall forever circulate for the .same value'as a dollars worth of gojd.:- With the modification and improvement of our banking system in 1913 the redemption of reserv^' n()tes was arranged ;by cross-entry In' the treasury so that no gold moves and today the original $150,000,000 -remains untouched it lias ^effectively .served its purpose of keeping all: forms of. money on a parity of value with gold. Recent evejits have disclosed the fact that our Federal Reserve banks have a reserve level of over 60 per cent even at {he present; as compared with the 35 tend 40 per cent establishied by law. We gain at least 100 million in gold per yiear w^th an industrial demand;of less than 50 million as compared \ with a demand for dollars, 12,000 times as greSt as shown by checks cashed in banks in 1832. Bank deposits exceed '40 billion while there Is actually only 9billion (see recent editorial) of actual money iri the country.
