The Law'i Delays.
TIio law's delays ar vexatious,
fOKtly, uncertain, and visually un
neresrary. Many Instances of long
drawn Ian suits are to be ascribed
to defectives Judicial machinery and
artificially stimulated mania for
litigation. Hut no law suit is often
unduly delayed except by the delib
erate design of the lawyers on one
eldo or the other, and tbs complacent
co-operation of the Judge.
The machinery of the courts rest
upon law and constitutions, which
can be changed only with difficulty,
and at beat very slowly. The law
yers and the Judges can change their
dilatory tact Its whenever they want
to. Remember that nearly always
there arc two sides lo a law suit, one
of which wants to hurry up, and tbs
other to go flow.. In ono case tho
lawyer who wants to hurry up Is the
same lawyer who In the other case
wanted to go alow. If the Judges and
tho lawyeis really wanted to speed
up tho wheels of Justice, they could
do It without waiting for the old or
consent of any constitutional amendment.
Is strange that, if that be the rase,
the attorney general should be ao
poorly Informed of the facts as to
feel under necessity of going to the
troublo of bringing suit to get an
explanation. Tho fellows who make
so much of the mote In their
brothers' eyes too often are found,
upon clone Inspection, to have a little
beam In their own crafty optica. Evi

tends to discount Reyes' denials of

Gompen on Socialism.
President Gompers must knaw

eration of Labor when be promise
the socialist that that organization
will exert Ha Influence to elect Job
Ilarrlman, tho aociallat candidate,
mayor of Los Angeles. Socialism and
organized labor are not and havo not
been synonymous term; in fact, at
tlmea sharp lines of differences have
been drawn between the socialist and
antl-soclallst factions In the highest,
as well an lowest, councils of union
ism. On the floor of the convention
of the American Federation of Labor
In Toronto a few yeara ago, tho two
factions clashed in a most acrimoni
ous contest, ths anti-socialists tri
umphing. Mr. Gompers, himself, is not pub
licly identified with the socialist
party; he has usually worked with
the democrats. Other organized labor
leaders, conspicuous on the floors of
the federation s conventions, are
known antagonists of socialism, yet
It appears from Mr. Gompers' state
ment that as a whole their moral In
fluence will go to secure the election
of the socialist for mayor In Los
Does thla mean that socialism Is
engulfing union labor? Not nece-
aarlly. It means, we think, the re
bound of public sentiment from the
fierce and unrelenting and unwise
warfare against union labor as an
organism which for years has cen
tered in Los Angeles. Had the fight
been conducted upon less radical
lines, appealing moro to the popular
sense of fair play, undoubtedly the
recoil would not have flared biek aa
far as it has. Reports emanating
from ordinarily reliable sources say
that many conservative buatnens men
In Los Angeles, who have never been
union advocate, are found on the
side of the socialists In this fight,
not because they have espoused the
principles of socialism, but rather be
cause they have decided to rebuke
the unreasonable demands of the

between a "good government" candi
date on tho one band and a socialist
candidate on tho other, both men of
admittedly strong personalities and
high abilities. But personalities are
lost In the larger conflict between the

forces, who appear to prefer what" is
called socialism to radicalism of the
opposite type. . . . '

Do your ChrlBtmaa shopping early, do tt
early, mother dear,
Alao sister, aunt and cousin, and all
kindred far and near;
Make your list tomorrow morning, put
down all those you'll remember
And you'll find that you've forgotten nine
or ten late In December, ,
Make your Christmas slipper early, maks
them for your pastor dear;
Make the dollies and the pillows that
deprive us of our cheer;
And you II find the one to whom yoa
hip the rich hand-painted dishes.
Bends you back a little card that gold'
tinseled: "Chrlstm Wlshe!"
Do you Christmas shopping early but
you'll find, as sure as fate.
That yowr list will grow, the longer at a
simply awful rate.
And on Christmas eve you'll etrtiggle
through the crush, all grum and surly.
Trying to make one last purchase that
you kept postponing early.
