The heroic deeds of men ln civil life,
though rarely celebrated in sons and story,
ennlly rival and often surpass the heroism
of warriors on land and o:i. Fire depart

and self-sacrifice cnnoblo mankind. A re

stuff of which the firemen are made. Fire
man William McNally was overcome by
smoke and flame In the burning building
while striving to rescue an Inmate. Fire
man James McAvoy saw his perilous po

dragged McNally and the Inmnto to the

waa due to his efforts that he, Knelsley,
advanced the bill and had It rushej
through. Knelsley Is not a "tradu lng
republican," but a democrat. All things
considered, his word certainly should not
be taken against Stone's. But th whole
matter of legislative Irregularities, cov
ering th period to which the charges
against Stone apply, is now under Investi

any other man In unofficial capacity to
try th senator's case for him. It should
be left to those who are prosecuting the
Investigation. Mr. Bryan, who took Stone's

to try and acquit Stone on the slum
charges. And as If such a course could
