CRIMINAL LAW EVASIOXS.
Governor Higglns' veto of bills
passed by the New York legislature,
complicating and protracting proceed
ings in criminal cases, ia based on a
principle whose - application would
remedy crying abuses in every state
In the union. Instead of extending
the protection of the law to criminals
by multiplied delays,' appeals,' techni
calities and evasions, the penal code
should be simplified and greatly re
stricted in those respects.
The Patrick murder case, for which
the vetoed bills were obviously de
signed to Create new opportunities to
evade the consequences of. the crime,
became long ago a scandal. Patrick,
himself a skillful lawyer,' 'was duly
convicted six years ago of deliberately
murdering by poison his own cllenta
wealthy old man, for' the purpose of
robbing his estate, the crime being a
diabolical compound of forgery, per
jury, theft, cold-blooded murder ana
betrayal of professional trust. Tet
it has been found impossible to exe
cute the penalty of the law. so in
genlously has the felon manipulated
the legal facilities for evasion and de
lay, and when all existing resources
had been exhausted a legislature was
found ready to create new ones.
The case Is extreme only- in the de
gree of ability to employ the means
afforded by the law. They are avail
able to any criminal who is in position
to command similar influence, flnan
clal support and professional talent in
The New York governor's veto is a
good sign, coming as it does In con
junction with multiplying evidences of
an aroused public sentiment demand
ing certain punishment of criminals,
notwithstanding their Influence in so
clal and financial circles. . It will be
found that before this sentiment can
be satisfied more effective means than
the law now affords will have to be
provided by a thorough overhauling

riRCHASIKG RAILROAD FAVOR.
Morals of the Rake-On aa Recently
New York Tribune.
It may be true, as Vice President Green
of the Pennsylvania, railroad says, that a
few years, ago It waa considered perfectly
proper for a railroad official to own stock
In coal mines. We have gone through a
period of business lawlessness, In which
corporation officers forgot, and the public
allowed them to forget, their functions as
trusties, and railroad presidents thought
of their positions merely, as places to be
used to their own advantage and the rail
roads as private properties, to be made
instruments of their own aggrandisement.
That waa the age of wholesale rebates and
Of personal warfare between railway mag
nates, with Incidental railroad wrecking.
The sense has been only slowly developed
in this country that a railroad la a com
mon carrier and that the manager owes a
public duty to every shipper, is bound to
fairness like a Judge on the bench and Is
not at liberty to use. his power over trans
portation to enrich himself, as If the road
were a private enterprise. It is this lack
of distinction between public trusteeship
and private property right that is responsi
ble for the rakeoff on coal mining profits
which influential officials of the Pennsjl
vanla railroad have enjoyed.
That rakeoff, we think, is utterly inde
fensible in the light of, present day moral
standards and present day . legal obliga
tions of common carriers. The hard
headed owners of coal mines did not give
away hundreds ol. thousands of dollars'
worth of their property as a pledge of
love and affection. They gave the stock up
because they thought It a necessary step
In carrying on business. They gave It up
to railroad men oo whom they depended
for cars. Without cars and general fair
treatment from the railroads their mines
were useless. The. . railroad men were In
abaolute possession of the key to mining
success. Tbelr duty waa to treat all alike.
Instead, they favored those who purchased
their favor. If they had been private shop
keepers, free to serve or to refuse to
serve, as they pleased. It .might have been
all right for them to force those they dealt
with to such terms as they could. But
they were not private shopkeepers. They
were public trustees, and they were not
selling their private aid to a coal miner,
but their official action: Perhaps they did
not realize it, but the public has' come to
a keener sense or the duty to the public
and semi-public functionaries, and the

WHO 19 OLIMiOWr
Something Aboat the Man Who
Wielded the Prob In Philadelphia.
When the Interstste Commerce commis
sion announced some weeks sgo that It
would Inquire Into the relations of the rail,
roads and coal companies In Pennsylvania,
and that William A. Olasgow. a Philadel
phia attorney, would wield the probe, In
terested circles w-re perplexed by the In
terrogation. "Who Is Glasgow?" He wasn t
very well known to corporation lawyers
then. They know him better now, and re
fer to him, respectfully, as "Mr. Qlssgow."
Th manner and methods of Mr. Glasgow.
as well as his makeup, are thus sketched
by the Philadelphia North American:
For the last two years William A. Glas
gow, jr., has been living In Philadelphia
and .practicing law every weekday, with
the exception of a short vacation In the
summer, at the bar of the Philadelphia
courts. He Is the tall-ender member' of
the law firm of Dickson, McCouch A Glas
gow, which has offices In the Bullitt build
ing. His home Is J03S Walnut street.
Mr. Glasgow ta not a native of Philadel
phia. He never knew Philadelphia, and
Philadelphia never knew him, until he
moved up here with his family from Vir
ginia. He was born In Virginia forty-one
years ago, and his father, who Is Hi years
old, still Uvea there.
He began the practice of law In Roan
oke, Va, and It didn't take Roanoke long
to see that he was a young man of parts.
Before he had got hits law books well
thumbed he had become counsel for the
Norfolk A Western Railroad company. This
was the first step In his unconscious prep
aration for the work that he Is now doing.
As counsel for the railway he learned
1ow railways were operated, how they
dealt with their patrons and how they
sometimes hid their lights under a bushel,
on the theory that It was not always wise
to let their right hand know what their
left hand was doing.
His fee from the railway company was
a pretty good Income for Roanoke, but
the business did not require all of his time,
and he .worked up an excellent practice
In addition to his railway work.
Circumstances seemed to be shaping Mr.
Glasgow Into a regulation lawyer for the
corporations. He waa dally Increasing his
knowledge of corporation law and familiar
ising himself with its intricacies.
The factor which Interfered with his de
velopment along these lines was his wife.
8he said she wished he would resign from
the Norfolk & Western.
"But think of the money It pays me,"
exclaimed Mr. Glasgow. f
At first he would not hear to the propo
sition, but gradually, as the dropping of
water wears away the stone, she prevailed
on him to cut loose from the railroads en
tirely and to branch out for himself along
For a while it was hard sledding. Mr.
Glasgow was worried, and so was Mrs.
Glasgow, although she would never admit
It until after the rocks were passed.
Then Providence took the next step In
the making of Interstate Commerce Com
missioner Glasgow. One night he came
home and told his wife that he had been
retained by a large coal company at an
annual fee In excess of that paid to him
by the Norfolk A Western Railway com
pany. Mrs. Olasgow first breathed a sigh
of relief, and then she said, aa any woman
would have said when such an excellent
"I told you so."
Being already well supplied with knowl
edge about the railroads, Mr. Glasgow now
beearae familiar with the trials and tribu
lations of coal companies and with their
relations to the railroads. That Is why he
knowa what td ask the witnesses whom he
Until the Interstate Commerce commis
sion was Instructed by congress to find
out something about the Siamese twlnshlp

panies Mr. ' Glasgow was an unknown
. i . nun. j.i-kl. '
When it was 'announced that the commis
sion had appointed William A. Olasgow,
jr.. as Its special counsel in the Investiga
tion, everybody asked, "Who is Glasgow?"
The railroad officials said, "Who's Glas
gow?" and smiled. None of them thought
that Olaagow could do much harm. He
was new and untried and would be easily
Presently things began to happen. From
the Interstate Commerce commission caiue
a fire -of letters such as. were new to rail
road officers. Questions reaching straight
to the heart of questionable arrangements
were put and answers not asked, but per
Information so requesetd was to be given
by fixed dates. Before railroad officers had
time to think they received notice that
hearings In the Investigation would begin,
and requiring attendance of these mag
nates, big . and .little, as Witnesses. Hav
ing been started, . the . Investigation has
been a succession of victorious forward
Large In stature, with a shock of straight

When Mr. Glasgow examines a witness
In this Investigation he takes from his
lawyer's cloth bag an oblong square red
box. To the railroad officers It has proved
another Pandora's box. It contains any
number of cards, systematically arranged
and ach one giving a full record of some
one subject or person.
Taking out the particular card needed,
Mr. Olasgww begins to question the wit

one or two leading questions are fired at
him. The lawyer Inquisitor Is calm, but
the witness Is nervous. He says he lias no

Mr. Olaagow leana forward, as if waiting

"Yes. of course. Now, Just tell the com
mission what else you have. We have a

In the end the witness has told and ex
