Charleston's grand jury last week
rejected indictments against sume 17
alleged violators of the law against
Illegal,traffic is liquor. Tbl* is not
the first time a Chareston grand Jury
has thrown out cases of this na?ure
presented to thean by the officers'
charged with the enforcement of the ?
laws. But tb? fast instance is differ
ent from previous ones In that tho!
foreman was frank enough to publicly |
admit, and to the court, what tho out
Side world has long known. In mak
ing the report on the bills, the fore
man ot the grand Jury stated that the
Indictments had been rejected not be
cause the jury bad failed to agree on
the ' question of law or evidence," but |
because of "prejudice against the dis
pensary law.'- That's rather frank
talk; but it 13, true. Moreover, it ?s
tho reason why grand juries heretofore
have thrown out Indictments of ihls
character, though it was not publicly
admitted.
While the situation is deplorable, its
ridiculousness arrests our attention
more. The grar.u Jury refuses to turn
In a true biW against an alleged vio
lator of the law not because they could
not agree on the question of law and
evidence, but because they wero pre-1
Judlced against the law In question.
But that is Charleston. The dispen
sary law ls not the only one thus
winked at. The law against gambling
houses ia not enforced because Mar
leston is prejudiced against the law
that would put gambling dens out of
business. The law against the protbo'
ls not enforced because Charleston ls
prejudiced against the law that forbids
those resorts' that flourish within a
half block of Charleston's principal I
stroet and In tho heart of tho city.
There are other laws on the statute
books which are not enforced in
Charleston, becauso Charleston ls
prejudiced against those partlclar
laws.
A dangerous precedent, to say Me
least In Charleston to be allowed to
abrogate a law. placed on the statute
books by the representatives of tho
people of the, state merely because
Charleston ls prejudiced against those
laws? Doesn't Charleston by this act
give evidence of her Inability to gov
ern herself? ???? ?
- Bot what ls to bs done about lt all?
All that the officers of the law can do
ls to bring the violators of the law
before the court and present the grand
Jory with tba evidence against them.
They can not go further than that If
tho grand Jury falls to indict, the work j
of the officers ts undone; their hands j
are tied. Wickedness can flourish
rampant as ever.
What, la the governor to do in a sit
uation like this? He puts special offi
cers there and he Instructs the regu
lar county ofllcerB to apprehend vio
lators of the laws. These o meero do
their blddlrg, and then at the Anal
"show-dova" their work ia undone and
the evidence they gathered tossed back
into their faces. If the governor can
not have the law-breakers punished,)
then what Ia he to do but adopt a prin
ciple of preventing these law-break
ers again throwing themselves liable
to indictment by making it Impossible
for them lo break the Jaws. Ia other
v/ords, If taaj can* not lie punished
after they have broken the laws, then
steps will ha'-o to be taken to prevent
the laws being broken. And that would
mean police surveillance so rigid as to
amount almost to a declaration of mar
tial law. <
Metropolitan, police were placed In
Charleston once apon a time. It
Charleston can not save herself, then
she must be saved -from herself.

TRIAL BY NI
(Chicago Tribune.)
Former President Taft, among his
suggestions to the New York constitu
tional convention, included one against]
"the practice of trial of cases by news
papers," which he declared was one of
the greatest evils wo have today.
"This practice," he said, "creates
an atmosphere which it is hard for
the court and Jury to overcome. My
suggestion would be that tty? consti
tution modify the freedom of the press
provision to the extent, at least, of au
thorizing the legislature to pass laws
to protect the administration of Jus
tice against the abuse of the press."
In the form hero such limitation of
the freedom of utterance might itself
be subject to abuse, but doubtless Mr., |
Taft would favor the most cautious
phraseology in ,any constitutional
chango o feo delicate a nature. News
papers which. oppose any restriction
upon tho freedom of the press arc
suspected of thinking less of the pub
lic interest than of their town. Yeti

Chicago hos been the butt many

has occasionally been accused of sa
voring somewhat of tho stoctyards.
Yet within thu last few months its
Latin and Oreen department, together
with the allied brandies of compara
tive philology and history/et urt. have
moved into a new and spacious build
ing designed and erected purely tor
Ulis specific work.
It is thoroughly cfiuippod for every
demand of classical teaching, provid
ed with stock room for a special li
brary of 220,000 volumes, o large, read
ing room, rooms for thc Meh's and Wo
men's Classical clubs, ara plo stero
optlcon facilities, editorial offices for
the Classical Journal and Classical
Philology, offices for the various pro
fessors, and other conveniences. The

EWSPAPERS
citizens will do well not to elvo too
much waight to. this suspicion, for
nowgpapera are highly competitive
and a law restricting one would re
strict its rivals. On the other hand,
nowspaper men ' have given more
thought to the nature and effects ot
publicity than most laymen and are
more genuinely aware of the neces
sity of press freedom to political free
dom and social progress. Their
jealousy of restrictive laws is by no
means merely self-interest, but ex
presses a.civic consciousness.of the
dangers of restrict ion.
Vet conscientious newspaper men
also realize the evils of irresponsible
publicity and other perversions of the
press' high responsibilities, and Mn
Taft has hit upon ?a groas evil which
newspaper men of thia typ#^d?pk>re.
If the freedom of the press can be
well to limit lt in this direction.
Hut the scope of restriction should
be most carefully safeguarded and not
left to the hasty and often irrespon
sible agency of legislatures.

sier can find decent accommodations.
Moreover, there will be very little im
provement ' in the situation. Bach

tary prison, with disappearing beds,
Hiffet kitchens, sunken baths, vacuum

that when we pull off the attaque

"Life's Handicap."
Lord Baye and Sele, who bas been ap

Green volunteer train corps, is a very
strong opponent of "Votes for Wo-j
men," apropos of which fact he has
told an amusing story:
He once attended a book dinner, at
which all the guests were expected to
appear with an emblem denoting the
title of a book.
Lord Baye 'and Sele went in ordinary
evening dress, but carried a lady's
petticoat under his arm.
No one could buess wat book he j
represented, but when he told them, j
every one was greatly amused.
His lordship's emblem represented j

Trae Heroism.
He had been courting the girl for
a long time. It happened on Sunday
night after church. They were sitting
on the sofa, and she looked with in
effable tenderness into hia noble blue

"Tom." she murmured, "didn't you ,
tell me cace you would be willing to do
any act ot heroism for my sake?"
''Yes, Mary, and I would gjadly re

"No Roman of old, however, brave,
waa ever fired with a loftier ambition,
a braver resolution than I "
"Well, Tom, 1 want you to do some- ]
