New York has been experiencing i
icign of lawlessness that is directl ;
duo to the anti-revolver law passed ii
that state by the last legislature. Oi
Sept. 1 it became a misdemeanor ii
Now York to have a revolver in one'
home. It became a felony to carry :
weapon. That meant a penitentiar ;
The result has been that respectabl
citizens havp been unable to offer sel
defense aga-nst bandits. And th
bandits have gone on caiiying guns
as befoie.
The bill was worked through th
legislature at the instance of Tan
many leaders. It was forecasted tha
it would have just this result. It i
said those originally behind the tneai

Every good citizen of this republi
will hope for a fair and speedy trir
of the fifty-four men who have bee
arrested for alleged conspiracy in th
dynamite plots.
If these men are innocent of thl
charge , a grave injustice has bee
done , not merely to them , but to th
organization they represent
If these men are guilty of thl
bloody conspiracy , they are strikin
at the very foundations of thia repul
lie. Our government is a joint par
ncrship. In a business concern ,
some of the partners refuse to abld
by the rules of the company , an
plunder and destroy the property c
the other members , the end of th
partnership is in sight , i Similarly i
a partnership formed for the purpos
of government.
The fact that courts have often bee
unjust and that capital has often brll

to dynamite. In the long nin , th

Among the noticeable- changes pro

Into effect is an amendment to the
state constitution providing that the
verdict of three-fourths of the jurors
in any case will be decisive. This pro
vision is ahcady found In the laws of
a few of the western states and the
Ohio lawmakers are convinced that it
is the proper and right step to take.
It is contended by those who heart
ily favor it that it will materially aid
in futtlioreiiee of justice , rather
than its retardation. They agree that
if the evidence is of such a nature
as to convince nine men out of twelve
It should be considered amply suffi
cient upon which to base a verdict.
It will put an end to the man who
is more conspicuous for his natural
contrariness than he is for his sterl
ing common-sense from tying up the
jury for long hours and defeating the
very ends of justice by compelling a
disagreement It will break up the
tedious delays and unreasonable expense -
pense of new trials and have a trem
endous force In giving Impulse to the
expedition of cases and a thorough
overgoing of judicial procedure. It is
these discouraging delays and this un
warranted expense that such consei-

Most people aggravate the appearance
anco of congestion of the small apart
ment by using wall paper with largi
and staring figures. A plain pape
with larger spaces of uniform cole
and design lets the eye wander aionj

of the cramped feeling. A similar effec
of si/e is gained by papering contigt
ous rooms that lie together with th
