One Train Wreck.
Fonr railroad officials, one an ex-
president, are killed in a collision
of two trains and the people are ap
palled at the disaster. The name of
J. T. Harahan waa famllar through
out the country and the country Is
naturally shocked at bis untimely
death upon the very road which he
served so long in various capacities.
Dually as president
But in the year ending June 30,
1111, 7,177 persons were killed on
the rallroada of tbia country. Sor
rowful as Is this latest catastrophe.
It Is to this nearly 8,000 that serious
attention Is first directed. We hare
had several wrecks of late with four
or Ave killed. This -one attracts
especial sympathy because of Its no

too. In 1101 the percentage waa
13.1 per cent of 100,000 persons, In
1110 it was 14.1 per c it. These
sre most shocking statistics.
In 1110 the number of violent
deaths In this country totaled 43,(00
end the rallroada contributed the
largest single part of that nuns bar.
With all our safety appliance lawa
and kindred means and measures
for protecting life, we have failed to
prevent an increase of this slaughter
upon the railroads True, some of
the roads are ahowing excellent Im
provement, and they are the ones
that have gone along on their own
responsibility Installing the most
complete safety devices and not
seeking merely to get within the
prescriptions of the Isw. Accidents,
of course, will alwaya occur where

Court House Art.
The county board Is wrestling with
proposals for. Interior decoration of
the) new court boose, which It is
taken for granted alt dealre to be a
thing of beauty and a Joy forever.
In addition to ths usual tinting aad
borders, the specifications are ssld
to call for a number of wall panel
paintings. Unless, however, the
members of ths county bosrd know
a great deal more acoui an man
most of ns profess to, fhey will be
dassled ehlsdy, It they rely on their
own Jndgment, by s catchy akstch
rather than ths real artistic merit of
design and execution.
Whatever paintings are put on the
walla at thla time will be staring at
all who visit the court house for
many years to come. The only food
reason for going lots this decorative
feature Is to raise the art level aad
to stlmslaXe appreciation of art and
esthetic beauty among all classes of
our people. Above all, the court
bouse wslls should not bs disfigured
with gsudy dsubs, to which plain
walla would be far preferable.

Murder and Juitice.
Why are so many more murders
committed in New Tort than In Lon
don, and proportionately, la the
United States than In England? Does
the fact that comparatively so few
convictions sre secured here snd so
many In England have anything to
do wtth It? In England few mur
derers escape arrest and conviction.
In England also murder trials are
conducted with alt due expedition.
In striking contrast with the United
Of 118 murders committed In New
YorK la 1911. 321 .in Chicago, 101
In St Louis, and so on with sixty
other American cities, says the New
York World, not one murderer was
executed within the year In which
he committed hla crime. True, we
hare the Beattle case In Virginia to
point to as proof thst the law's de
lays do not always defeat or stave
off Justice, but such exsmples have
come to be the exceptions.
Official statistics show tbat I In
1110 six of every 100,000 perrons In
this country were murdered. The
total number of convictions of mur
derers la not at band, but statlatlcs
sre for a few cities In 1111, which
are significant enough. While New
York police arrested 171 of the 118
murderers In 1111, the courts there
secured only one conviction In every
nine cases before them. In Chicago
the police arrested 173 of the 831
murderers aad the ratio of convic
tions vras also ons in nine; the Phil
adelphia police caught 71 of 81 mur
derers and the convictions wsre shout
the sama as la the other two cities.
San Francisco stands out with one
conviction out of every two esses.
la London, with a population of
about 7,000,000, only nineteen mur
ders were committed In 1103, and
all but one were arrseted and con
victed; In New York, with a popula
tion of less than 8,000,000, 198 mur
ders were committed In 1111.
The common excuse that the
American police are leaa efficient
than those abrosd. will not explain
away this awful indictment The rec
ords make a fairly good showing for
the police. The trouble Ilea la the
prosecuting mechanism and In the
courts, where technicalities aad the
"law's delay," are the forces that
defeat justice. Unclog the wheels
of Justice with the red tape, make
the technicality of the law subservi
ent to the plain purpose snd see If
tlx of every 100,000 of ns are still
murdered every year. 'Conduct crim

The Bee: Have just returned from s
three-day trip west ta Nebraska and

tard! ag the poUUcal situation. I have
been reading numerous communications
eminnUng front the secretary of the La
FeUette committee here ta Lincoln tn
local papers te the effect that La Follette
sentlaent was blooming la Nebraska snd
citing numerous incidents where "Pro
gressive republicans have said that they
would vote for a democrat In the event
of the renojalaatioa of President Tatt."
aad tt was wtth considerable fear and
trembling; thst 1 opened up a conversa
tion with a gentleman who occupied a
seat with ma soon after leaving Lincoln,
tor fear that I might be overwhelmed
with argument In favor of the Wisconsin
statesman. ' However, my fears wars set
st rest when he Informed me that he was
s democrat and that he was from Ok
lahoma where fee owned a farm. He said
that most of his neighbors were repub
licans, but did not seem very favorable
to Senator La Forletta, preferring Pres
ident TaTt ss between ths two. In fact
I found this sentiment to prevail In
nearly every mstaacs and while I dis
covered republicans who were for La
Follette, not a single one of thero felt
that Cher weald vote tor a democrat In

thst say republican whs was really pro

the president Linos hi is ems to be the

the fact that there are se many repub
licans hers whs voted for Mr. Bryan
three years sge and find it hard work
to leave the downward read after once
striking the decline. From my experience

"WHAT C0KSTITUTES A STATZP
Sir William Jones.
What constitutes s state
Not high-raised battlement or labored
Thick wall or moated gats: ,
Not citiea proud with spires and turrets
Not bsvs snd broad-armed porta.
Where, laughing at the storm, rich navies
rol . , ..
Not starred snd spangled courts.
Where low-browed baseness wafts per
fume to pride.
No: men. high-minded men.
With powers aa far above dull brntse en
dued. In forest, brake or den.
As besots excel cold rocks snd breasblee
Men who their duties know.
But know their rights, and. knowing, dare
Prevent the long-aimed blow. '
And crush the tyrant while they tend tag
These constitute a state!
