Experiment in Citizenship
With Great. Enthusiasm
Smooth Sailing Yet.
New Tork. Pec. SO.--The chief of po
lice of the '"City Government of JPubllo
snhool II' Is not nearly as busy a per
son as he might b supposed to be,
though he has 2i00 persona to watch and
isafeguard. 1 .
The three judges of th highest tri
bunal In the samo government have had
few cases to try-yttf For the 2400 cit
izens of the new government thus far
have proved very & taw y eMding. Of
course, the novelty of the new adminis
tration has not worn off, and when it
does begin to lose Its glamor, the chief
of police may be a very busy jroong man
indeed. .
The campaign Is ended, the-ticket Is
elected, and the mayor, the police com
missioner and the other public officers
f the new government have taken their
high of fices. : They were' sworn into
office - with' due solemnity ' and they
made their speeches of acceptance in
ihe same solemn form. '-:'".'
Theirs will be the difficult task' of
conducting the first administration in
the great city school at Oak and Jamea
streets, which has a cosmopolitan con
stituency as varied as that of the city
9f Greater New York; 7 1 .
Idea Quickly Adopted.
The idea of the new government in
the school originated in . 'the fertile
brain of Assistant Secretary Frank Kler
nan of the school citizens' committee
and Principal Benjamin Volt at once put
It into practice. So the boys went ahead
with their organization, all by them
selvesy with two of the teachers as an
advisory committee.
. After a constitutional convention, at
which a charter was drawn up and rat
ified, the citizenship, which comprises
the five upper . classes, turned to the
business of elections! Nominating con
ventions put 20 candidates in the field,
and the campaign was on tn earnest.
The candidates ran for a week, up to
election day, and swung around the cir
cle of classrooms making vigorous
speeches on "my policies.' The offices
of the president cf the board of alder
men and city clerk were the most hotly
contested for. It was a campaign of ed
ucation, however, wherein acrimonious
recrimination and mudslinging between
the candidates were missing.
. fceal Election Held.
On election nlgbt, though, there was
real . reason for the sign : "No Elec
tioneering," as set about the polling
places in the auditorium. There was
also need' for the placards: "Instruc
tions to Voters," 'for the body of citi
zens included Hebrews, Italians, Greeks,
Chinese, Germans, Irish, French, Span
ish and Africans, v The challengers had
registration lists ; on hand, and kept a
sharp lookout for 'floaters"' illegally en
rolled from the lower grades. The elec
tion passed into history with the follow
ing results: Mayor, Antonio Cam
mo rata, plurality 61; President board of
Aldermen, Joseph Slvin, plurality 17;
police commissioner, Edward Marks,
plurality 63; city clerk Abraham Klaua
cer, plurality ?. . . ,-
These high city officials were in
stalled with great ceremony. After the
school's color guard had saluted the
flag, Frank Chin, a Chinese youth, the
polling clerk, read the results and the
officers spoke their speeches Of accep
tance. : .;-, '' ' : .V
Said the city clerk, who is a promis
ing orator; "This school is our smaller
city. Just as it will soon be our duty
to care for our great elty. It is our pres
ent duty to care, for our school city to
guard it and protect it and leave it
when we graduate the better for our
having belonged o it , For myself, let
me' thank you for the confidence you
showed me in electing me to a position
of honor and trust." "
' Diplomatic Speeches. -
The police commissioner said in part:
"Fellow citliens of the Self-Governing
league of this school, I thank you one
and all for this high honor." .
The chief planks in his platform, he
explained, were the enforcement of the
monitorial systpm. the attainment of
greater expedition in fire drills, and the
square deal for all classea
Then the administration was installed
and Principal Volt thanked Mayor Cam-
morata for relieving him of so large a
portion of his onerous duties. -
OneNoMhe tasks of the new adminis-
tratlon'sx program was the organization
of the court, composed of three Judges,
who will try all minor offenses against
the School discipline, Instead of having
offenders punished by the teachers. - "
The sanitary commissioner, Joseph
Manning, la doing great work. His daily
rounds have more to do with the chil
dren themselves than with the "city."

and hands are not kept clean. Manning

'enacted, nullify the-present law of con
structive contempt that is, ' contempt
outside the courtroom. Another, in
which the labor unions are Interested, is
far a law to forbid the use of injunc
tion and restraining order without a
hearing of both sides. . .
Other suggestions are for a modifica
tion of the contempt law to provide for
jury trials. Still another is that no
judge be permitted to try his own con
tempt case. -Thatever the final form
of the law the agitation Is certain to
be a feature of the January session.
Still another bill, alredy drawn up
by Representative Campbell of Everett,
would clinch for the people any laws
enacted by the legislature by, taking
from the courts the right to ' declare
them unconstitutional. .

fell to the floor, striking his eye on the

There Is no middle ground for the
man who has poor teeth or not enough
teeth to properly chew his food.
In a pinch be can get along and be
fairly comfortable with other parts of
his anatomy missing, but he must have
enough teeth or the human engine will
go wrong and break down.
Good teeth are vital.
How about yours?
We have a sensible, rational and en
tirely effective plan of restoring miss
ing teeth through our Alveolar Method,
and we accomplish this. result without
having to half fill the mouth with a
partial plate or torture the wearer with
an ordinary piece of bridge work. .
. A partial plate can't be made so It
will fit for any length of time, because
the gums are constantly changing their
shape. ....
One can't ''bite" on any such con
trivance or chew his food properly.
An ordinary "bridge" is high in the
middle, like a "Cantilever" structure,
. andjt Is both dangerous and painful to
bite ondKngerous because it is apt to
nap in two under the strain, painful
because the constant strain irritates the
teeth to which it is anchored and finally
- ruins them.
When we place the Alveolar teeth In
your mouth we say: "Go and use them
Just as you would nature's teeth crack
' nuts with them if you want to. They
will stand the usage."
We take all the chances.
tThey are good to look at too. '
So nearly do they resemble natural
teeth that even . dentists have to look
twice when examining them.
There la practically no pain about the
Installing of the Alveolar teeth, no sur
irery, no boring or . cutting , Into tho
jruma, nothing about having them put in
your mouth that you need fear, so come
to one of our offices and have: the
work done right away.
All we require la 4hat you have two
or more teeth In your jaws.'
We will supply the rest " "
Klrst, you must come In for an exam
. I nation so we can look your teeth over
and talk with you about them. .
Tou don't obligate yourself to spend
a penny with us simply because you
came here out of curiosity or to have
your teeth examined.
n fact, you put us under the obliga
tion. ' , I- -
Kurely your health ia of enough im
portance to call for a little of your time
for wuch an Investigation..
But you may be too far away to call,
In which case send for our booklet.

Salem, Dec. 20. One matter of some
little Importance which will come before
the Oregon legislature next month as it
will before a great many state legisla
tive assemblies this winter and which
to some extent has lately been over
looked is the matter of the income tax
amendment, to the federal constitution.
Wlll. Oregon legislature approve of
this amendment which has been rejec
ted by New Tork state and has been
approved by one or two southern com
monwealths T j v
The amendment which congress has
proposed to the states reads as fallow's:
j "Article XVI. : Congress shall 1 have
the power to lay and collect taxes on
Incomes, from whatever source derived,
without apportionment ampng the sev
eral states, and without regard to any
census or enumeration."
The constitution itrelf provides that
It may be. amended by proposals made
by congress to the states where two-i
thirds of both houses deem It necessary.
This amendement. opening the door for
an Income tax law. will come into force
when three-fourths of the states have
ratified the proposal through their legis
latures. The constitution has ben
amended In this manner several times.
The congress may provide that the
proposed amendments be ratified by
state conventions rather than by the
state legislatures If It so desires. The
constitution may also be amended by a
national convention to be called by the
congress upon the petition of two-thirds
of the states or whenever two-thirds of
each of the houses of congress deem It
necessary. This method of constitu
tional revision has never been resorted
to on account of the expense there
would be attached to that procedure.
