Tie Grand Jury. .
The grand jury that has Just been
empaneled and Instructed by Judge
Sutton U looked to by our people
with more than the usual expecta
tion. The atmosphere has been ao
surfeited of late Tito charges and
countercharges of graft and corrup
tion in official circles that an inquisi
tion that will bold the culprits to ac
countability, or declare the rumors
groundless, baa become desirable and
Judge Sutton bas outlined the
work confronting the grand jury,
with special emphasis upon certain
classes of lawlessness which should
hare Its particular attention. This
enumerated list Includes Jury, brib
ing, election frauds, liquor license
shake-down, collusion with public
contractors, violation of gambling
and liquor laws, the social erU and
Albert law, and combinations In re
straint of trade. This la a formida
ble program, opening a large field
for grand Jury activity. ,
It will soon develop whether oar
present grand Jury is on tbs square,
eager to expose corruption and
wrongdoing, or mors anxious to
cover it np and protect tba wrong
doers. If It buckles down to busi
ness In earnest It will produce re
sults. If it wants merely to mark
time It will be better for the grand
Jury to adjourn as soon as the
routine proceedings are transacted.

cf halftone news pictures with suit
able descriptions of Senstor La For-
lette oa the farm." '
The proof sheet is certainly illus
trative of progressive campaigning,
the whole family of the distinguished
senator front Wisconsin being en
listed as camera subjects for promot
ing bis political fortunes. Not only
are there snsp shots of ths progres
siva candidate for president spraying
ths orchard, driving a disc harrow
and resting on tbs lawn in his work

of Mrs. La Follette and all ths little

huddled together on the grass; here

hero It Kobert, Junior, starting out
with ths trap to meet his father at
tbs station; here It little Philip and
a string of Shetland ponies, and here
are Phil, Mary and Bob, Junior, play
acting In costume In the front yard.
It Is all very interesting, and is cer
tain to appeal to tbs newspaper edi
tors, particularly In view of tbs ss-
surancs thst "ths plates ars ready

Do aot misunderstand us as find

It a good thing, as recognising the
power of printers' Ink, and the value
of ths country newspaper In provid
ing publicity which candidates need.
Ths Innovation lies in pressing ths
sntirs family Into service, Including
father, mother, brother and sister,
down to the little baby, and the pony
and ths dog. It's a good gams. Push
it along, snd wstch for the pictures
