Australia's Curse of Socialism.
Same months ago the Post edltorl
ally discussed the effects of Socialis
tic domination In government upon
the commercial and industrial devel
opment of Australia. The discussion
was bused upon some figures takon
from a London newspaper showing
the falling off In Immigration to Aus
trolla and tho abnormally low tate of
Increase In tho country's population.
The statistics furnished by the En
glish paper seemed almost extrava
gant, but It appears that tho half has
not been told. The Australian Olobe.
In discussing tho Post's rovlow of tho
situation, declares "the Wnshlngton
paper Is hut poorly Informed If It Is
satisfied to accejir. the figures quoted
by It at correct The world should
know that Australia s almost, at a
standstill In the matter of population,
and will begin soon to lose tinlosa
there le a radical reorganization of
governmental policies and a return to
sane politics and principles. In a
land capable of supporting the whole
or tne jstiropean noun at on manv
times over, and where It might be
thought labor had founil Its elyalum,
the worklngman and his employer
find they cannot make a living."
The Qlobe quotes figures to show
that the gross Increase In population
In Australia in the last 10 years hat
been only 760 000, nnd that for the
last 10 years the increase hat not been
more than 600. Young men nro leav

exactions of government on tho So

The state supreme court Monday
announced Its decision In the case of
W. Danlelson, et al, appellants, vs.
W. B. Roberts, respendent: from
Jackson county; Ilanna, Judge. De
cision Is reversed and a now trial or
dered. Opinion by Justlco ttoan.
This Is a case which has excited
conslderablo Interest In this county.
Roberta encountered n public opin
ion severe In condemnation of Ills ac
tion In despoiling the boys of the
find, who wero too young to know Its
real value, nnd taking advantage of
them so grossly In giving thom a C-
cent reward. The court's action may
rosult In tho boys getting the value
of tholr dlecovory to a largo oxont.
The case is ono of treasuro trove
Involving tho right to tho possession
of $7000 In gold.
In 1891 tho Danlelson boys, oeed
8 nnd 10 yoars, wero hired to clean
out the Roberts chicken house. Thoy
dug out of the ground n gallon can
containing gold colus alleged to he
of the value of $7000. The coin had
been hidden for many years and evi
dently the truo owner wns duail or
unknown. The boys showed tho
money to W. II. Roberts, who claimed
It, gave the boys fi cents, told them
not to toll any one nnd the Lord
would bless them. ICarly In 1003 they
brought this suit to recover the
money. After their testimony had
been Introduced at the trial the indue i
granted a nonsuit upon the ground
that the money hnd been Intentionally
hidden by some one and that the boys
could not, therefore, Invoke the rule
that the finder of lout property Is en
titled to lie possession ns against all
the world except the true owner. This
decision Is held to he erroneous. The
supreme oourt holds that In this coun
try there Is no distinction between
property which the owner has loet or
Involuntarily parted with nnd nron
orty which the owner hns hidden In
the ground. Tho finders nre untitled
to possession ns ngnlnst all tho world
oxcopt the true ownor. In this ensn
the court holds that tho boys nro en
titled to tho possosHlou of tho money
unless the dofondants can show n. hot.
tor tltlo, and tho cao Is romnnded
ror now trlnt In order thai the Tights
of the parties may be determined by
the nvlilnncii It 1 i.,,i...... . .. .
lierhuiw the boys nre not entitled to
K.p the money, under tho tnhit,u
remtive.to lost property and Irena
ure trove, but the question whether
tha money bolongs to the bov nr n
th state Is not passed neon. Ash.

Men Love the Neat Woman.
There Is an attraction In neatness
and order all their own. Tho lack Is
felt even when there is great beauty
to dnszle the eye. I know that there
are men who tolerate slack, untidy
women, but I have always rcgnrded
thom ns martyrs to duty, mistaken In
the size of the obligation laid upon
them. I have novor blamed tho man
who shunned untldlnoss at homo, be
lm father, huahnnd. son or brother.
and that, my frlonds, is tho real whip
that drives mon from their owu fire
sides. Tho really neat woman Is neat
at all times, nnd tho slack ono Is very
unwise whon sho Indulges her pro
pensities at home. Cleanliness may
bo next to godliness, and certainly
neatness Is next to beauty.
