Nothing is clearer than the fact that
the system of landholdlng In the most
ancient races was communal. Private
right In land was for a long time un
known, the source of life being held in
common between the members of the
tribe. Not only land, but all property
that in any way had to do with the
general welfare, wns looked upou as
belonging to tho whole tribe In com
mon, no individual hnvlng the right to
call It his own. Gradually and after
a very long time, under the old regime,
the right of private ownership began
to creep in until at last It became the
recognized rule pretty nearly every

struct Jury In H s Favor.
CLAIM LETTER IS PRIVILEGED
Attorneys for Carroll Claim Nc Malic
Shown State Resists Motion and
Denies That Governor Had Priv
ilege to Publish Charges Should
Have Gone to the Senate.
Des Moines, Sept. 21. The defense
came to its turn in the Carroll libel
case when the state unexpectedly
rested. Tho defense immediately
moved to have the jury instructed to
return a verdict for tho defendant.
Attorney Parker gave the following
six reasons why the verdict should be
a directed one for the defense:
Insufficient evidence had been intro
duced to warrant a verdict of guilty.
That Carroll's article was justifiable
In that It was published In reply to an
attack by Cownle upon the character
and official conduct of the governor
and that the reply did not go beyond
That the article was published ou
a privileged occasion and that no evl
dence had been Introduced to show
malice on the governor's part.
That the article is not libelous, Inas
much as the governor did not assert
that Cownie was guilty of the charges
in the affidavit.
That the governor merely stated a?
his opinion that the facts as disclosed
to him of the purchase of supplies
without estimates constituted a vlo
latlon of the law and that this state
ment cannot be made the basis of a
That the facts as set out In the In
dlctment do not under the law con
stitute a crime.
The greatest stress of the argument
was In relation to the letter of the
governor being privileged because II
was a matter which was In line of hi?
duty and because It was In response
lo an attack which Cownle had started.
The state introduced the testimony
chiefly ns to what the governor sab'
to various persons about the case and
to show that he was telling about II
to many persons.
Argue Directed Verdict Motion.
Immediately upon the opening o)
court In the afternoon Judge Howe
dismissed the jury until Monday morn
ing, the afternoon being devoted to
arguments by the attorneys for and
against the motion for a directed ver
diet made by the defense.
Following this Judge Parker added
another section to his motion for s
directed verdict, it In substance belnr
That Governor Carroll charged John
Cownie with violating the law In mak
lng awards without first securing es
timates and that such a charge was
true, Cownle admitting it on the stand
Attorney Parsons then opened argu
ment to the court in support of the
claim that the statements he made
were not libelous In themselves, and
that the governor did not act ma
Attorney Parker then opened argu
ment on the contention that the Indict
ment does not charge a crime, and
that the evidence thus far does not
prove that he committed a crime.
Read Defends Cownle.
Attorney W. I Read made the first
argument for the state" He took ex
ceptlon to the claim of counsel foi
the defense that Carroll was actlns
within his rights in conferring wltr
persons about the Cownle charges.
"It was n natter Governor Carrol!
wns required to tell the senate of tilts
state, and not polltidans and editors,'
Continuing, Attonv Rend ques
tloned the claim of tho defense thai
Cownio proveked fie letter of Govern
or Carroll upon which he was Indicted
He nsserted also that Carroll had nc
right to coerce Cownle Into a reslgna
tlon. He said that Carroll had the
right to do no more than suspend
Cownle. And In forcing Cownle to re
sign and In telling of the charges
against Cownle, Attorney Read assert
ed Carroll overstepped his authority
and also provoked Cownle to tell his

The very high sounding word eti
quette had a very humble origin, for
etiquette meant simply a label. It de
rived its present meaning from the
fact that n Scotch gardener who had
laid out tho grounds at Versailles for
Louis XIV. was much annoyed at the
courtiers walking over his newly made
paths and at length had labels placed
to indicate where they might walk.
At first these labels were ignored, but
a bint from high quarters that in fu
ture the walks of the courtiers must
o within tho "etiquettes" or labels
was promptly attended to. To keep
within the "etiquettes" came to mean
to do the correct thing.
