U going on. but still throughout practically
tha whole empire tha judicial methods, in
all civil and criminal cases, for tha ex
traction of evidence by torture and flog
ging are Identically the same methods at
barbarism which have been In existence
far centuries. Nothing could more clearly
show the distortion of the present Chinese
views of Justice than tha case of "the
lady from Pea Chuan," whose arrest for
kidnaping preceded the Shanghai riots.
There was an outcry at the arrest of this
woman on the chars" of kidnaping, for
was not kidnaping only slave dealing a
legitimate traffic sactloned by official
usuge purchasing little girls in Sse Chuan
cheap and reselling them dear at Canton
for purposes which need not be specified.

Recently Wu Ting Fung drafted a1 new

literary effort, suggests, among other
things, trial by Jury. The Innovation Is
regarded with dismay by litigants, as tha
necessity of having to bribe a Jury as well
a the magistrate must add an Intolerable
burden to tha present cost of litigation.

MADRID, June 23. (Special Cablegram to

treating a pickpocket of murderous pro

soon forget. He waa walking along one
of the outer boulevards an evening or two
ago and Joined a group which waa watch
ing a cinematograph show at the facade of
a house, when he felt a hand playing with
his waistcoat pocket and soon perceived
that a valuable watch had left him, in
company with a scarfpln and his purse.
Ho looked around, and perceiving a man
hurrying away as fast as he could go,
started In pursuit and was about to catch
the fellow by th collar when a couple of
bullets whlxzed past his ear. 1'nrtaunted
by this dangrtrnua attack the American
rushed on. and overtaking the miscreant,
rendered him Incapable of further mischief
by a well directed blow from his fist, and
then gave him a sound thrashing. Thla
done, he recovered possession of the atoleri
articles and triumphantly committed th
pickpocket to the custody nf some police
man who had now arrived on the spot.

Senator Bailey said that so far as he had
been abl to determine, some of the part lea
to the combination alleged had been con

not understand how one party to a conspir

not, but said: "If the courta will follow

a expressed In th senal today when
th consideration of Proctor's motion to
aend th bill to conference was resumed.
He based his criticisms on the clause re
lating lo the Inspection of stock entering
th packing hous. saying that it gives
a polic supervision that th federal gov

thst th provision should be msde to road
so as to make It unlawful to transport

He contended that the provision ss It
stands is not so worded ss to make It

The pure food bill was tsken up and
everything was smooth sailing until th
so-called "package amendment" was
reached and then squalls sprang up and
the legislative sea liecaiiie choppy.

the penalty provided. the weight and
measure. If stated, must be correctly
stated, which he argued was very difficult.
He said tha this nss a most serious ques
tion. Involving as It did vast Interests, and
I It should not be hastily considered. It
would work a hardship on the big canner
to put the weight on each can, for caua
of standard size do vary in weight. '
Sherman Weighs Ketchup.
He told of having gone Into a big can
nery in Rochester, N. Y., and with a mem
ber of the firm weighed flfty glass Jars of
ketchup, supposed to be Identical In weight.
Bui Ihe bottles varied from 13 to 15 ounces,
when every effort had been made to make
the standard weight fourteen ounces. H
s.ild if eeiy can and every bottle inuat
contain the correct weight It would drive
many canneries out of business, becaus of
the incidental expense attaching ln the
weighing and in the marking of the can.

would overturn business policies of a life
