Xhecdore 'Roosevelt Writes Further
of McNamara Cases.
Labor Leaders Who lime flnrrrrilrd
In Identifying Criminal with
Their CuniF Have Done Their
Fellorts a Great Wrong.
NEW TORK, Dee. 15. Theodore Roose
velt has an editorial in the current Issue
of the Outlook relating (o the McNamara
taiie, entitled "Murder Is Murder." The
article rays:
"Not only laboring men, but business
men, capitalist!, have at times shown the
worst form of class consciousness that
of sinister and brutal class selfishness in
standing by criminals simply because they
were of their own class. This lias been
done by capitalists in the case of capital
ists who have been guilty of braien cor
ruption, and by laborers in the case of
labor loaders who have been guilty of
murderous violence. The two offenses
Ft and on a par from the standpoint of
damn ne to the community. In Ban Fran
cisco in one municipal contest the capi
talists who desired to be free from all
check on corruption and the labor leaders
who desired to ba free from all check on
lawless violence struck hands and elected
their tioket; and this proved in the end
to be a lasting misfortune to San Fran
cisco, to the cause of honest business and
to the cost of honest labor.
I'lea of Monstrous Folly.
"Since the startling outcome of the
McXamara trial certain apologists of
these men have made themselves con
spicuous by asserting that these depraved
criminals, who have on their s.-arod souls
the murder of so many Innocent persons
all of them laboring people, by the way
are 'victims,' or at worst, 'fanatics,'
who should receive sympathy because
they were acting in wfist they regarded
as a 'war' on behalf of this class. The
plea is monstrous in Its folly and its
wickedness. It is precisely tlio kind of
plea sometimes advanced on behalf of a
crooked man of great wealth caught
bribing a legislature that ho has to do it
to protect his business. We are not here
dealing with any of the kinds of offenses
Incidental to the sudden and sweeping
changes brought about by mcdqrn In
dustrial conditions Into which capitalists
or labor men are somtimcs drawn with
out any very great conscious moral tur
pitude on their part. AVe are dealing with
crimes as old ns the lawgiving from
lnal, with crimes murder and theft
that have been prohibited ever since the
decalogue was formulated. The murders
committed by men like the McNamaras,
Hlthough nominally In the interest of or
ganized labor, differ not one whit in
moral culpability from those committed
by the Black Hand, or by any band of
mere cutthroats, and are fraught with an
Infinitely heavier menace to society. Tet,
great though the menace is to the com
munity, the menace to the cause of hon
est organized labor is still greater, and
no duty is more imperatively laid on the
leaders of labor than the duty of af
firmatively freeing themselves -and their
follower's from the taint of responsibility
for such criminals and such crimes.
Evil Service to Labor.
The leaders who by their loud cham
pionship of the McNamaras as previously
of .Moyer and Haywood have succeeded
in Identifying them with the cause of
Iaborin the eyes of, the public, have ren
dered' an evil service to that cause. Mr.
Debs and the extremists of Ills type
among the so-called political socialists
I say so-called becauee Debs and Ms
(ollowrs of the Emma Goldman kind are
not socialists at all In any true sense of
the word, ' but mere inciters to murder
and preachers of applied anarchy and
the labor loaders affiliated with thera.
have always boasted of the purt they
played in the trial of Moyer and Hay
wood; and in this case they repeated their
familiar tactics, and held mass meetings
and scattered broadcast papers and ad
dresses In which they furiously denounced
the effort to bring wrongdoers to Justice
and sought to arouse every evil class In
stinct against all who upheld the cause of
law or sought to put a stop to assassina
tion and murderous violence. It is worth
noting that since McNamara confessed
his guilt Mr. Moyer, the head of what
purports to be a labor organization, is
reported In the press as commenting upon
it, not by denouncing McNamara for hav
ing committed the murder, but by de
nouncing him for having confessed it.
Such denunciation is significant.
Menaces of American People.
"Murder is murder, and the foolish sen
timentalists of sinister wrongdoers who
try to apologise for It as an 'Incident to
labor warfare,' are not only morally cul
pable, but are enemies of tht American
people, and, above all, are enemies of
American wage worker. In honorable
contrast to these men stand the various'
labor leaders wbo bavu never asked for
more than a fah- trial for the McXa
snaras'. wnesjs pnwm has eery heea la

Hines Objects to
Questions Asked by
Lorimer Committee
WASHINGTON, the lS.-Ed ward Hlnes.
the millionaire Chicago lumberman, who
is said to have helped "put Senator Ixirl
mer over" at Springfield, was again a
witness before the senate Ixuimer com
mittee today, but did not long remain on
the stand. Mr. Hlnes had been recalled
by the committee's counsel for further
questtnn'ng as to Just what happened In
a private room of the Union League club
In Chicago, March 27, 19(19.
Mr. Hlnes was belligerent and when he
did not like a question demanded that It
be stricken from the record. Hlnes la al
leged to have met other men at the club
to help raise a supposed $1(0,000 fund to
Insure Lorimer's election.
Hlnes and Elbrldge llanecy, Larimer's
counsel, successfully combatted the com
mittees proposed line of inquiry today.
The committee's attorneys announced that
they would call Mr. Hines a third time.
"Manny" Abrahams, the "Bellwether"
of tlie Iee O'Neil Browne democrats In
the legislature at Springfield also was
recalled and cross examined. He admitted
that he made up . his mind to vote for
Lorimer when he learned that Browne
and other democrats were going to do
the same.
Senator Jones asked If he had received
any-money for his vote for Lorimer, and
Abrahams said he had not.
"Is It true that you held up the ballot
ing for a day because you couldn't get
enough money?" asked the senator.
"Not at all," returned Abrahams. They
had a story around that I had been of
fered $2,600, but was holding out for $6,000
and delayed the vote for a day on that
account. But It was not true."
Minority Report on
Coal Harbor Charge
Scores Conspirators
WASHINGTON. Dec. 16. The sudden
ending of the Inquiry into the charges
that the government had allowed a
monopoly of the coal harbor at Controller
Bay, Alaska, was roundly scored In the
republican minority report of the house
committee on Interior department ex
penditures filed today.
The republicans said that common de
cency If not Justice, would have demanded
some Investigation to expose those re
sponsible for the fabrication of the so
called "Dick to Dick" letter, alleged to
have been written by Secretary of the
Interior Balllngcr to Richard 8. Ryan,
the latter supposedly representing the
Guggenheim Interests.
The minority report , said this expose
should have been permitted even If the
democratic majority was unwilling, for
partisan reasons to "exonerate the secre
tary of the Interior and other high offi
cials of the unjust charge."
"And so the whole fabric of fabrication,
suspicion and downright falsehood on
which the investigation was based, falls
to the ground," says the minority report.
It also urged a thorough Inquiry so as to
locate the guilty persons and have some
punishment meted put to them and "to
deter others who may employ false
hoods and dupllc'ty in assailing official
"The action of the majority of the com
mittee," It said, "can have but one effect,
that of shielding the perpetrator of the
libel and throwing protection around who
ever through malice Inspired the cowardly
attack upon the president."

A ten-pound bite requires a forty-pound
contraction of the human Jaw muscles.
That Is because the Jaws are built on the
principle of a pair of tongs. The power
Is applied near the Joint, while the work
Is performed at the opposite extremity of
the Jaw levers. Had a mechanical engi
neer designed the human frame he would,
no doubt, have built the Jaws after the
fashion of a nut cracker, with the mus
cles placed at the ends of the Jaw levers,
and the teeth between these ends and the
Joint or fulcrum, so that a powerful bite
could be obtained with a very small ex
penditure of muscular effort. However, In
the physiology of man and all other ianl
mai life, for that matter, mechanical ad
vantage weighs for little In the presence
of other broader considerations. This is
why nearly all the principal muscles of
the body must be far more powerful than
would be necessary were they to act di
rectly upon the work. When chewing we
have an almost direct application of the
power of the muscle as thoy nearly
overlie the third molars. There Is a vast
difference between chewing and biting.
In order to determine the average
strength of the Jaws, Dr. G. 15. Black,
president of the Chicago Dental univer
sity, sometime ago devised an Instrument
of very simple drslgn, but with a name
that would put the average Jaw to a se
vere test the gnathodynamnineter. With
this Instrument ho made 'gnathodyna-
mometric tests of the Jaws of 1.000 per
sons. They were seiccieu bi rinuum anu
probably represent a good average of
civilized people. He found that the limit
of the bite was not determined by the
muscles but by tlie teeth themselves. In
nearly every case the patient would cease
hi efforts, owing to the fact that his
teeth hurt. This would depend largely
upon the condition of the peridental mem
branes, and uion the habits of tlie pa
tlent In accustoming his teeth more or
les to chewing hard foods. The average
of the 1,000 persons showed 171 pounds for
the molar teeth and much less for bicus
pids and Incisors. Out of the 1,000 per
sons, seventeen developed a force equal
to the full registry of the Instrument,
which was 275 pounds.
In a recent publication Dr. Black has
tabulated the records of about fifty per
sons who were tested with the gnathody
namometer. The list Includes men and
women of all classes, from a blacksmith
to a Chinese laundryman, and from
urvint Klrl to a music teacher. It la
natural to picture a butcher as a man
with a well-developed and powerful Jaw,
but among the patients In the list the
butchor showed a power of only 16
pounds with his molars, from which we
may Infer that he Is accustomed to se
lecting the tender meats for use on his
own table. The man with the highest
record was a printer, who registered 770
pounds (but any compositor will admit
that printers' pi Is tough), while the sec
ond honors wenl to a dentist with 240
pounds. Among the women the highest
record reached was 1M pounds, while the
lowest was forty-five. Strangely enough
the school1rl wbo made the latter record
was able to register seventy pounds with
her Indoors, which might Indicate that
she had accustomed her dental mem-
branca of the front teeth to harder work
by ibUlng a pencil, or something of the
sort. At aay rate, she was one of those
uofurtunatea wbo "bitw off more then
