It. applies, of course, 'to facte like-those alleged to exist iii the case of Burke, who IB accused of having received presents from con- But it also applies to the case o'f giving a tip to a bell-boy or a waiter. It has all these years been a viola- tion of the.Zone regulations, punish- able by fine'and' liuprison'raonf, to give or receive tipsi Servants hi the Zone receive living wages, and they get no tips. They novcr Slave either asked or received tips since Colonel Goe- thals has been In control. And yell atrange to say, people en- Joy their meals there as well as they do here. The food paid for once digests as well as if it has been paid for twice. People do not aay that servants, while not so cringing and servile as they are where tips are In .vogue, are just as efficient as if they bartered away self-respect .for dimes and quarters every day a dozen times. Why not got rid of the whole pesti- ferous thing? Why not follow the Colonel's lead? It seems to me that the time is very propitious now for this forward step. A few years, ago when one give a dime to the girl or boy who took liis coat and hat at the cafe, he Celt that he was doing something for tliat girl or boy; but such ta not the any., more. The man who knows what's' what is aware of the fact that the coat-snatehers, the bell-boys, the brusli-weilders, and all the tlpji-eceiv- ers at the great hotels and cafes are employees of the tip trust, and get nothing out of the tips. They are hir- ed to take tips, at so much per -week. Most of them have no pockets in wiioh to put tips. This would seem to be the limit. Tipping has so run its course that it defeats itself. So 'why keep ;it up? Why allow it? Why..-not reouirc hotels-and to hire, thalr ser. vanta, instead of Having them furnish- ed by the til) pay them liv- ing wages? SLASHING SUFF SENT UP FOR TRIAL London, May Graham, the militant suffragette, who yesterday slashed a number of valuable palnt- IIIES in the National Art today Committed for trial after a hearing at the police court, the accused kept nil a continual tlr- mle from the prisoner's enclosure, and was held fast by two policemen throughout the proceedings. The pictures were not so badly dam- aged as had boon thought, according to the evidence .of an official-from the Gallery. AWAITING OTTAWA ORDERS AS TO HINDUS Vancouver, B.C., May 11 o'- clock the komagata Mam had not yet passed quarantine. Dr. Milne, agent for the Immigration department at Victoria, said he was awaiting special instructions from Ottawa. No mat- ter what is done with the Hindus it seems likely that the vessel must be allowed to come to Vancouver to dis- charge ter cargo of fifteen hundred tons of coal, consigned to a-shipping firm of this port.

So irre-. futabla are. the reasons advanced for spelling reform that no real .counter- argument is Wtat IB ad- vanced is largely based on arising from ideas Inbibed before rea- son began to operate. Ignorance, too, lies at the root of muoli of the oppo- sition offered to a revisal of tUe exist- ing system, which only became stereo typed at a comparatively late period, and then under erroneous conceptions of the origin and affiliations of the English language. No one who studies thr. Bastion im- partially, but must be c.-'.-fineed that the fact and tile weight argument are wJiolly on the side of the reform- ers. The Judgment of Viscount Bryce better known as Professor James Bryce, late British Ambassador to the United States, must be taken as that of a man accustomed to estimate. His statment Is, therefore, -worth spe- cial attention', when he declared that simplified spelling would be worth millions to British trade as a time- saving business proposition. Why should children bo laboriously taught and be compelled to waste their time in learning how to spell individual words of Identical sound, but differ- ent collection of Jotters, when the adoption of a system representing, each sound by one symbol would at once remove every difficulty. Teachers everywhere not .only re- cognize, but are individually Aip against the present obstacle created by an absolutely indefensible .and really artificial system of spelling English words. A favorite defence Is that'the'spelling indicates the origin find derlvatltfn of the word. This, In moat cases, is not only erroneous, but what holds hack Its expansion Is difficulty foreigners find In mastering Its endless intricacies. Structurally it is logical and simple, but its indi- vidual 'words are too often stumbling hlocta to the child and to the foreign- er. The simplification of English spelling should appeal to every im- perialist as a very practical way of making English the link between na- tion and nation. The New Jersey legislature' is con- sidering a bill requiring poison tab- lets to made cotlm shaped to dis- tinguish them from medicines. China has sent government agents abroad to study the manuiaatute of telegraph and telephone equipment with a view to making nil such ap- paratus at home.
