Former Postmaster-General, Under
Cloud, Expires at Washington.
Former Postmaster General James
N. Tyner died at Washington Dec. 5,
aged 78 years. He was born In Brook
ville, Ind., Jan. 17, 1826. Mr. Tyner
had never recovered his health since
he was stricken with paralysis in July,
1902. Besides being postmaster gen
eral, Mr. Tyner has held many offices
of public trust.
The stroke of paralysis which shat
tered Mr. Tyner's health occurred in
July, 1902, while he was assistant at
torney general, and he never discharg
ed the duties of his office after it.
Mr. Tyner has been identified with,
the postal service most of the time
since March, 1861, when he was ap
pointed a special agent in the depart
ment. The sensational climax to his
official career occurred in April, 1903,
when he was removed by Postmaster
General Payne following the taking by
Mrs. Tyner and Mrs. Barrett of papers
from the safe in the office of the as
sistant attorney general, of which Mr,
Tyner was then the head. Mr. Tyner
was ill at home and the office was
under investigation by postofflce in
spectors. The postofflce department gave out
a statement at the time Tyner and
Barrett were indicted, which set forth
that there were three indictments
charging Tyner and Barrett with con'
spiracy and two additional indictments
charging Barrett with agreeing, while
in office, to receive fees for services
rendered or to. be rendered in cases
before him as an officer. It was charg
ed that Tyner and Barrett investigat
ed the business of bond investment
companies and learned that they were
all carrying on a business that involv
ed fraud or lottery, or both, but that
Instead of recommending to the post
master general the issue of an order
that would prevent the delivery ol
mail or the payment of money orders
to those concerns, and would thus
break up their business, they conspir

It was charged that Barrett formed
a law partnership for the handling of
the cases of these concerns before the
department; that Barrett wrote a re
port with Tyner's connivance, declar
ing that while the business was ille
gal as then conducted, the principle
was right; that Tyner and Barrett
procured the signature of the post
master general to a letter written by
Barrett stating that a reasonable time
would be given for making over this
business, during which time their use
of the mails would not be interrupted.
It was chr.rged that this opinion was
printed at government expense and
sent to every known company, with
a circular letter to each stating that
the business of that company was ille
gal; that about the same time De
cember, 1900 Barrett sent to each
company an announcement that he had
resigned from office and would handle
their cases for them.

Andrew Carnegie Borrowed Dime.
Andrew Carnegie found himself on
a street car m .New York the other
day without a cent in his pocket. A
fellow passenger offered him the nec
essary nickel, which was gratefully
accepted. "Are you coming back
aeain?" asked the stranger, who on
receiving the affirmative reply, said:
"Then you'd better take another nick
el." The multi-millionaire again ac
cepted and asked the benefactor's
card. This was forthcoming, and next
day the good-natured passenger re
ceived a case of champagne and a
cordial note of thanks.

In the days when Mark Twain was
an ditor out west he was not so well
off as of late years. One morning the
mail brought a bill from his tailor, not
an unusual occurrence. The boy who
went through the mail called the fu-
tnro humorist's attention to it. And,
added the boy, "he has written on the
back that he wants a settlement at
once." "You know what to do with

Twain. "Inclose it with the regular

AN ACCOMMODATING COURT.
Gladly Rips Up a Law the ParryJtes OW
The New York court of appeals ha.-s
just decided that the eit;ht-hour law
of that state is unconstitutional. The
men who employ labor wanted that
hind of a decision, and courts are very
accomodating these, days. If such .'.
law h? unconstitutional there is only
cue thins to do cljaugo the consti
tution. If the court is v.-rung, changt
the court. Who &aid anarchy? Bless
jour innocent soul, Abraham Lincoln
set the precedent of changing courts so
a;, to secure the kind uZ a decision
wanted by the people au 1 needed Just
as badly as the people wanted th:
change. When thy supreme court, de
cided the legal tender. -act. unconstitu
tional Lincoln merely secured a change
in the law, increased th- number Of
judges on the supreme' beach and then
appointed men who would decide that
the legal tender ac. was constitutional.
Then it vas re-enacted. Who will

pattern for workingmen to follow?
