Pleads for Better i Government. OSOiOSO)C 0OSOSOSCCO0 The Men's Leagrue of the First Con- Eregationai Church held its regular monthly meeting .last might in the church parlors. President R. H. Cham-betlain occupied the chair. The flrst order of business was the election of F. H. starkweather as secretary. , President Chamberlain then mads a Tew remarks. He said: "Since it is one. of the objects of the League to Btudy and discuss subjects of vital interest to-men, I think we will all be benefited by a study of suffrage. We have one with us who has given th? -subject - much thought and study an who will give us his views upon it." " Warren Olney was then- introduced and read a paper on "A Necessary Reform in the Suffrage." Mr. Olney read . in part as follows: . "During the lask-fitty years the tendency has? been to nnqrease suffrage, until now it lias-- reached such a pcint that it is a question whether or not it has gone too far for the good of cur government institutions. We are a.-proaching universal sulfrage; "The history of the country shows that our early forefathers deemed t wise to restrict suffrage to those who were property holders, and in seme Instances the .qualification extended to religious views, none but church mem bers of the Protestant faith being al-' lowed to vote. At the birth of our country the framers of the Constitu-j tion made a propertyquiUficat on re -eesary for a man to "Vate. since that' time the States, one. by one, have betn lessening t!he restrictions, until at the present time there are very few that require qualifications for the vo:er. lIn the times of the framers of cur Constitution the party leaders had more power than at present, and more respect was' given to the thoughts cf wise men. At the close of the Revolu-ition we had a galaxy of , ttat. sn-.en who have not -been -equaled" in h.story, and thev held that a person, not own-inr property should not be allowed tj Vote. ' " 'Now, I do not ibelieve that it is an inalienable right of every man, woman .and child to vote. The State is an or-ganilwsd society for the best good of all, -,and it we are to be endangered by a -' lowing non-property holders to vote, then'I say they should not be given - the franchise. "If a class is detrimental to the in terests" of good government it shouN fee excluded from taking part in th government. - Experience ha3 taug us in the last fifty years that by allowing unrestricted franchise to all have been declining in our . municipa governments. llany good and wise men have been brought to "believe that Executive Dr. H.

This condition is brought about by having the large element of idle non-taxpayers controlled by bosses who fillkliem up on whisky and sway them for gain in office, either honest or dishonest. This has reached such an extent that it is impossible for good citizens to determine who are worthy candidates and tvho are unworthy , "In- most of . our large cities more money is spent yearly for their govern ment than it takes to run a kingdom.

"Iri European cities they have a better city1 government than we have at l muchness tax. This is especially the case in the cities of Eng'.and and Scot-:and. There it is considered an honor -o hold an office, although there is no salary attached to it. The basis of heir sucess is the fact that every voter -nust be a tax-payer and they see that ?ood men are put in office to govern them" You will find no saioon men in the legislatures of English cities, hile in some of the cities of the Lmted States you will find one-nair saioon men. The: gas and water works and -treet railroads are also owned by the English- cities' and pay a good divi- lend to their owners. "Now- contrast the cities of these tw o people of the same race and then ask what is the cause of -the difference. The fact is too apparent. We have asen oh the decline, ever since we have become to enfranchise idle voters. The non-taxpayers are a cancer in' our government system and the knife must oe used to cut the ulcer out before i af- ects ojur whole system.

WELLTNG- i The starry theatrical firmament of this country today is well crowded, but the stars who flicker there are many of one order and but few of another. The comedians, farceurs, operatic and comedv-drama stars are in the majority, the tragedy queens being few and far between. This is, cf course, not without good and 'sufficient reason. No actress today with the flittering offers of the vaudeville and the offers held out for feature positions in big productions, cares to try and win favor in the trying legitimate drama. Among the few stars, in this line, who have today the much sought after favored smile of the theater-going public is Xance O'Neil who Is to appear at the Macdon-ough tonight and trtorow night in "Magda" and. as Met Merriles in "Guy Mannering." Her triumphs in the le gitimate have been clear cut. shining forth with a brilliancy that fairly dazzles all contemporaries. Production af ter production has been staged by her and the first to met with disfavor Is yet to be offered. She comes here with a particularly strong company of legitimate players. 1 The sale of tickets has been larire and there will be a fine appreciative audience. THE DEWEY.
