a resolution of appeal lor his pardon
and It was presented to the president
by a United States senator. No pro

$60 reward money and left no sign.

That mysterious "midnight meet

The publication of a magazine ar

that it Is an erroneous Idea to asBume
that the average family should have a
larger number of healthy children

aroused the president to a reiteration
of his expressions on the subject of
race suclde and has given him oppor
tunity to emphasize his views on that
subject and renew hU pledge of de

mutation of sentence, for William

Missouri, whose trials and experiences

him to be ad up-to-date twentieth cen
ture Jean Valjean. When about 21
years of age January robbed a post
office at Stillwater, Okl. Evidence
showed at the time that he was in a
desperate condition, without work and
almost starving. He was sentenced
to twelve years In a federal prison and
was a model prisoner for five years.
Then came a chance of escape and he
embraced It. ' Assuming the name of
Charles Anderson, January went to
Kansas City, found work, prospered,
married, built himself a home and was
becoming well-to-do when an old cell
mate discovered his identity and be
trayed him to the authorities for the
1(0 reward that had been offered at
the time of his escape.

would be bad for us, but the country would
still exist. But it could not continue to
exist If it paid heed to the expressed or Im
plied teachings of suob articles as this.
Clearly the stork s duty is to get
busy with Its defense. It may be able
to do this by, citing statistics from
other states and . sections, showing
overcrowded kindergartens, record
breaking attendance at Sunday school
picnics, the enlargement of the circus
seats for "half-price" tickets, the in
creasing and insistent demands for
more parks and playgrounds for the

"tendency to the elimination rather
than the survival of the fittest" such
as the president fears. We are confi

showing along these lines that will al

course, it is still up to the bird to ex
plain why it has discriminated against
Massachusetts. Perhaps it should not
be blamed for doing most of its work
In the more favored fields, but unless

REAL HOME RILE!.
New York's Governor Strongly t'p
holda the Policy.
The New Tork executive Is proving him
self to be one of the most enlightened and
courageous friends ot real home rule that
state has ever had. He has surprised and

He has killed bills raising salaries of
stenographers and assistant secretaries of
the Brooklyn under-sheriff, increasing the
pay of cooks and laundresses In local of
fices, regulating the management of a
county Jail and so on.
"It Is absurd," he said tn one of his
brief veto messages, "that the legislature
should be called upon to deal with mat
ters of this sort." The things covered by
these petty local measures should be left
entirely to the local authorities. To the
argument that existing charters and the
existing relations between the legislature
and local administration unfortunately
make it not only possible but actually nec
esssary In many coses to bother the legis
lature with questions of small offlcea, In
creaaea of pay, repair and management of
county buildings and ao on, Governor
Hushes replies that the proper thing to
do Is to secure an amendment of the un
duly restricted municipal charters or pass
a general act extending home rule to cover
all such caeca.
The position Is manifestly sound and
wholly consistent, of course, with the de

ROIND ABOUT NEW YORK.
Ripples on the Current of Life I
After having collected at least $30,000, and
perhaps (50,000, from frugal Hungarians In
New York City, Cleveland and Chicago on
the strength of glowing advertisements
claiming valuable land grants, railroad con
cessions and subsidies from the Hungarian
government, the first Hungarian Oil and
Mining company, headquarters in New
York, has been repudiated by the authori
ties at Budapest. Those who bought stock
in the company are looking for their money,
with little prospect of seelryg the color of It.
The concern is pronounced a bald swindle.
The company's prospectus quoted some of
the great profits made by the Standard OH
company as examplea of what might be ex
pected. Finally it offered to aell shares at
$2.50, the par value of which was $5. The
hard-working people on the East Side in
vested their savings, none being allowed
to purchase less than Ave shares at $12.50.
In queer ways the health fad betrays Itself

The uptown branches of banks have been
experiencing a persistent run on gold re

not cease even here. Gold itself may be
tainted, and .before these prudent women
will handle the coins that come from the
banks their maids are called upon to put
them through a strict process of sterlllxa
tlon. Rigid economists are disposed to com
plain that such vigorous handling will de
crease the lntrlnaic value of the oolns
through what is known as "sweating," but
aa long as the fetiches of "health and
beauty" are believed to demand the aacri

The wonders of Coney Island have been

surprises. "The Great Shipwreck" will

passengers tittered and the young man,
blushing furiously, felt he could stand It

With every robbery reported In New
York hotels furniture manufacturers come
to the front with a boast that whatever
else the robber may have hidden himself
it certainly wasn't under the bed, because
beds nowadays are buflt too low for even
the thinneat of villains to hide under. "We
even advertise to that effect,"- said one
manufacturer. "For many years losses of
money and Jewelry were attributed Indl
rctly, at least, to. the bed, which was built
high enough to afford protection to the
thief. Finally, In order to save the good
name of that necessary piece of furniture,
we decided tp build It so low that not
even an infant could crawl under It,
thereby compelling the enterprising burglar
to seek a hiding place elsewhere."

the extreme penalty. . In pronouncing sen
tence Judge Fawcett deplored the fact
that he was unable, to pronounce a longer
sentence. Dellorofonte waa convicted of
levying blackmail on several countrymen.
He had planned a trip to Italy with the
money he obtained. .
Judging by President Roosevelt's charac
ter and all he has ever said and done since
he has been president, the unanimous re
quest of the people that he be a candidate
for a third term will not alter his purpose
to retire, partly because he has other
reasons than the third-term tradition. The
third-term movement, however, Is probably
grateful to him because it will put It In hlB
power to name his successor. If he will not
serve It would be a strange admirer who
would not favor a man whom he has se
lected to continue his policies.
