Two or three are listed AS spec'"' corporation counsel. The rcvelalion* about ihc sanitary tlwtiicl payrollers caused a senwlion last year. The district (unices usually ·re vitnlly interested in certain bills affecting their powers. The convenience of having in the. Legislature men on wlww volw they eoiilfl absolutely rety, was. evident. Some of the, payrollers had ihc (trace to return the salaries icccivrd from the sanitary district, Olher* talked vaguely of Icflal services tendered, The necessity of explaining was emlwiassinft. Most volen have the iiilrlliftMirc lo recognise that * person who is being paid by a public body, whether n town, tity. p-irk hoard, sanitary district or other public corpon- Uon, is hnrdly in a position to act disinterestedly on any bill which affects his employer.

It ihc .situation were reversed; if O'Loupli- lin were the suspect and his spouse the detcclivc, we might look for results, but none are likely to follow ttie experiment as it Is actually arranged. That is because, in the old, old game of family inquisitions. wives since lime immemorial have proved themselves the superior, Probably the thousands of years in which woman was a chattel, obliged to fence with her wils for f very bit of power or privilege sh« wished lo exercise, lnu«ht fier acutcnws in ihis art, In the role of (jtiestioner slie is lirerrs 1 , ingenious and armed with a perception for her Inn- band that makes her instantly aware of any evasion.

Immediately the detective* doted in about Mr. Roosevelt and laid a detaining hand oik the Jtranger. But Mr. Roosevelt in turn stepped forward and gratped the man's hand. The man wore bushy, black whitkeM, «n- awcring ln« cartoonist's dewription of an anarchbl. He happened lo be an old friend and admirer of the President, and the joke was on ll»e secret service men. We aco a modest fellow, and never forward in taking credit tor things, but It would be more than human not to observe that yesterday we spoke approvingly of tho Springfield gasoline war, and today read In our favorite morning and evening ncws- [!tr*r that the Decalur price has been reduced one cent a gallon. And now. hopefully, lot us say that If thin war settles down In a siege, It will bo perfectly all right wllh us.

Thf most notable quality of Mr. Morrow's first cam- pnlf,n speech wns tils ability lo ,my what every Intelligent jiilvtttu jHTson knows and no politician ever dates to utter. Ilo la the Republican candidate for senator. He begins by saying that hlti Democratic opponcnU are as patriotic as lu 11, thnt their motive a a re as high "as those we venture to claim for ouruelveH," and that there l.i no need to suppose that either paity ia the only party tit to govern. It Is all obviously true. In civilized society no one questions It. Yut how many candidates for olflcc would admit It? And ao as to "Coolldge tnoanerlty" nnd the "Hoovet t!epr(salon'!" It Is natural; he says, for the Democratic party to raise that Inane, All parlies In the pail, Including the Republican parly, have bt*en wont to ctedit themselves ivitl' whatever good happened during their term nf power, without looking tor the deeper reasons thai underlie the ebb nnd (low of pro.iricrlly, Any phrty which uikes credit for the rain muai. not bo surprised If Its opponents blame it for the drouth. Thl.H Is the langunRC of Intelligence. It 1 s not, unhappily, the conventional language of politics. Indeed it seems i'~i hr Mr. Morrow's immediate mission In American public )li'a t« demonstrate that to be nlmple, sincere, tensionable Is not only plcnsantcr but Is better politics than to be tlcvlou?, calculating and ati'ntcglcal.

Hoover'* recenl Iravcls have called allention again lo tlu! tenuuk.iblf care luken in guarding the President, Since ihe asiassination of President McKinlcy in 1901 no President has been a free man. When Mr, Hoo»rr was entertained at luncheon in Boston it was observed thai a gallery near the speaker's table, usually well filled when prominent personages nrc present, was vncnnt. The President's guards hod request* d this, and two men who unwillingly look seals, were quickly hustled out. A Boston resident remarked to a high police official that re saw nr evidence of any special care, "I came here with my wife," he said, "and all 1 to do was to show my blur ticker. I couldn't see that anyone inspected it verv dosely." "Don't fed so self satisfied," said ihc official. "At least 50 of our men »iwd you tip before you got into the dining room." One wonders, however, how much this "sizing up" amounis to, and what (here would lie about a well dressed, intelligent looking person that in a detective's opinion would, make him a twpkious character. An unshaven, unkempt man who lited to break into a President's reception probably would b* hurtled cut Mt once, but it is probable that nobody having dtswni on the life of tke President would come dresaed "k« · tough The detectives that ward t ( K p rc ,iJ en , have no occult powers and probably judge by outward appearances.

DO THE GIRLS REALLY LIKE TO SMOKE? --Brooklyn JEagle The faculties o( most colleges ior girls have waived or yielded the point as to the "right" of young women In higher educational Institutions to indulge in clgarets. Perhaps they have been right In doing so. But the question whether tho girls really want to smoke or whether they are "bluffing" In of keen Interest. Most human beings pretend to want what is denied them by rules. And the pretense I* wonderfully real Is tie at times. There are close to 600 girl students at Adelphl College In Garden City. There Is also a smoking room, once asked for by the Students' Council, and perfectly equipped. Not n student Is using It. The room, let us say, "called the bluff." It was n wise concession to an apparent, though not real, sentiment. Ami the educative value or the sequel offers a pointer to educators the country over, i Tho social trend toward elg«ret smoking by women cannot, ot course, bo denied. In some Institutions this trend has more Influence than in others. In Adelphl It would seem to hove no Influence at all. And lo conserr- ntlve fathers nnd mothers Adelphl could offer no better sort of advertising.

Eighty-five per «»nt. of our ducks and geese are hatched and reared in Canada Th* pressure In the United States for killing game now is the greatest and most deadly ever, Vast areas arc destitute of quail, grouse, turkeys, woodcock and shore birds. The killing power of the commercial Interests la almost Inealstlble. and unless there are Immediate nnd sweeping reforms no klllable game birds will be alive In the United States 15 years from today.
