Army Officers Have
Laugh at Judge Who
Sentences to Army
Whenever District Judge Sesri
gives a young offender a suspended
jail sentence on condition that he
"join the army or navy," a loud laugh
goes up from the recruiting stations
of these two branches of Uncle Sam's
fighting service.
Looked at carelessly, this geems a
good solution of the problem. It is

The repeated failures of Mahlin and
Satsuma to gain possession of the
secret of the submarine finally drove
their employers to exasperation, and
harsh measures were decided upon.
The spies were summoned before the
black council, the executive body of
the secret service of their1 govern
ment The meeting was held in the
council chamber amid black trappings
and ghastly reminders of the fate
that awaited treachery or failure. A
grave assembly of masked figures lis
tened coldly while their chief, the
only one whose identity was not hid
den behind a black mask, questioned
Mahlin and Satsuma regarding their
activities in pursuit of the much-de
sired secret. Their explanations
failed to satisfy. The decision of the
council was announced cold-blooded

an official envelope bearing the fa

was marked "Strictly Confidential,"

bureau ot naval intelligence,
'As you are perhaps aware." the
letter concluded, "there exists at the
moment between the United States
and a certain power whose name it is
unnecessary to mention a situation of
the utmost gravity. This power u
convinced that we have permitted
our navy to deteriorate to such an ex
tent that hostilities could be inaugur
ated against us with a reasonable
chance of success. It is no exaggera
tion, therefore, to assert that the dis
covery of Dr. Burke's formula may
save this nation from invasion. Under
these circumstances there is no need
for me to urge you to prosecute the
search with the utmost energy. The
safety of the United States may well
depend upon your success."

"But it will only tslte a few hours
for us to obtain a license and find
a clergyman," urged Hope. "Surely
we can wait that long."
"You don't think I'm going to be
married without a wedding gown and
a trosseau, do you?" she demanded.
"Because, if you do you are sadly
mistaken. I only expect to be mar
ried once and I've set my heart on
having the things that other girls
have. Our happiness can wait for a
few days, dearest," she added persua
sively, "Our country comes first.
"You're perfectly . right, dear,"
agreed Hope, secretly applauding her
patriotic stand. "We will take up the
search again at once. There are only
five books stilt to find and the miss
ing philosophy must be one of them."
Whose name is on the list?" she
"Joaquin Romero." he answered.
"Not the poet and naturalist?" she
cagcriy inquired.
"The same."
"The man who writes those won
derful poems about the forest and the
flowers and the birds?

the High Sierras. He lives there so
that he can study nature at first
"We will pay a visit to Mr. Ro

poems and have always wanted to
meet him.
To reach Romero's Sierran home

they reached it they understood why

Nor did they need to be assured of
the identity of the tall, eagle-faced
old man with the keen blue eyes and
the mane of snowy hair who greeted
them on the veranda, for hit features
had long been familiar to them
through newspapers and magazines.
"Mr. Romero," said Hope, "I am
Lieutenant Hope of the navy, and
this is Miss Cleo Burke."

Buke, the inventor, who died re

Returns With Honor of Being
Eleoted President Has
4,600 Members.
Bringing with him the honor of be
ing elected Its president, E. G. Mc
Gilton is back from the meeting uf
the Commercial Law League ot
America at Atlantic City. Amorsg
others there from Nebraska were H.
H. Baldrige, Raymond Young and
Henry Thompson of Omaha and C.
M. Skiles of David City. Speaking
about th growth of the league and
its work Mr, McCilton says: "
The league was organized at De
troit in 1895 and has since met an-
nually, once In Omaha. It now has
4,500 members, to which each state
and each of the provinces of Canada
contributes its proportion. I attcnde.t '
the first meeting as a charter member,
and have attended nearly every meet
ing since.
Uniform Legislation.
The objects of its organization
were to promote uniformity of legis
lation affecting commercial law; to
elevate the standard and tniurote the
practice of commercial law; to en
courage honorable dealing among
lawyers, and to foster a feeling of
fraternity and mutual confidence. At
the time and tor a long tune preced
ing, the method by which controver
sies arising out of commerce were
handled were very unsatisfactory.
During the last fifty years our com
merce has grown to mammoth pro
portions, running well in the billions,
at least 90 per cent being transacted'
upon credit. In the normal conduct
of this business the agencies that, have
to do with it are imbued with the
spirit of honesty and fair dealing, but
as alt healthy, normal life is likewise
attended with disease and decay, so
men in the business world are not all
sound morally nor guided- by the
highest ideals of business ethics.
Hence the wide field for an organiza
tion such a the Commercial I w
Results satisfactory.
The results sained bv the organiza
tion have been most satisfactory. The
league compels members to adhere to
its schedule of fees for business ad
justed without litigation, and when
litigation ensues to conduct it upon
reasonable terms. It is now possible
for a merchant of the Atlantic sea
board to entrust to a member of the
league residing in California his legal
business, with assurance that it will
receive efficient attention.
The league haa no use for the in
competent or dishonest lawyer and is
doing a great work, together with the
American Bar association, in purging
tne protession ot tne duck sneep ot
its fold. To that end the league lends
its aid to state and local bar associa
tions in their endeavors to raise the
standard of the profession. The league
likewise takes a great interest in legis
lation, both state and national, affect
ing the commerce of the country. It
has special committee upon bank
ruptcy legislation, upon legislation in
general and upon grievances growing
out of complaints lor overcharges or
dishonesty. Most of our important
litigation comes from our enormous
commerce, and lawyer generally are
beginning to realize that the great
productive field of litigation is now
and will be In the commercial system
of the country."
