hasty measures and it should be possible to reduce the
outlay in many directions. Nevertheless such reductions
.hould be carefully made, for the problems of peace are
larger in some ways than those of war; it is essential
for the good of the nation that large sums should be
raised and spent.
Appropriations for soldier farms should be gener
ous, as should those for waterways, land reclamation of
various sorts, public engineering projects. The nation
is facing an era of great development which should not
be cramped by financing on too small a scale.
Proper economy should be observed, of course. But
what is even more necessary 'is that all expenditures,
large and small, should be provided for bv some sort of
budget system putting them upon the same business-like
basis that is recognized as necessary for the successful
conduct oi any private concern.

The governorship tangle is not solved by the su
preme court's decision but is left worse muddled than
before. The, whole tangle, however, is the result of an
attempt to overlook or disregard the plain provisions of
the state constitution that all vacant elective offices must
be filled by the voters at a general election, and that the
temporary incumbent of an office by reason of a va
cancy created by death or resignation has a right to
serve in that capacity only until the people have the op
portunity to fill the place at a general election. That

we have no time for languid ease; we have to work like
