THE ?ELI OF OF LAWS.
".I had a count made not long ago in
tho Library of Congres?" says Elihu
Hoot, "of the number of lawB that
had been passed in five years ending
December 1, 1913. I found that more
than 62.000 laws bad been passed by
congress and the State legislatures in
this country in tliut live years, nod I
found that there lind been reported
during Hint five years and published
In 630 volumes of reports of thc courts
more than 65,000 decisions of courts
of last resort In this country. Now,
not even Mr. Clioate knows them all
by heart. How can you conduct your
business and keep out of Jail?"
How can any man, whether In busi
ness or not. keep out of jail, with'
those 112,000 laws. and 05,000 court
decisions on his trail, reinforced by
the hundreds of thousands of laws
und decisions of-other years? Per
haps the reason is the very fact hinted
at by Mr. Hoot-that no human being
eau possibly keep track bf them.
Anybody would think that the legal
profession, in sheer despair at trying
to keep up with*legislation and court
decisions, would try to curb tho out
put, limiting tho scope of legislation
to essential thing:?, and reforming out
semi-legiBlatlvu judicial system.
The recent death of Dr. Charles ?.

THE RETORT ALCOHOLIC
In reply to the question asked by
Leslie's Weekly, "Who drank all the
B8.000.000 gallons of whUkey made in
the United Staten last year?" the
Madison ville (Ky.) Hustler says:
"We sincerely hope lt hasn't been

The arrest of Huerta and thc threat
to prosecute his alleged financial
backers is another Indication of thc
present atUt;:de of the administration
toward the former president of Mex
ico. On the assumption that Huerta
was a disturbing element in Mexico
he waa forced out of the coutry, and
it was given out at the.state depart
ment that the Carranza-Vllla faction
would Bhortly reBtore peace. Later
when there was a break between Car
ranza anl Villa tho latter received
thc support of thc administration and
was heralded as a second Washing,
ton. When Carranza appeared to
have tho upper hand a statement
came from the president which was
construed In some quarters as a
threat of .intervention. More recent
ly Villa seems to be becoming strong
er and nothing 4s being heard of thc
purpose of the administration to as
sume a more aggressive attitude In
dealing with tho Mexican troubled.
Its entire attitude seems to amount

If this government intends io pros

fairness and neutrality in dealing
with thc different factions would ap
pear to call for similar treatment of

one will seriously contend that Villa
and Carranza are without financial
support from this country. If the
secret service of th government will
take the trouble r watch the Villa

that are transpiring in Mexico. If it
ls a crime for Huerta to start another
revolution in the United States, why,
it is asked, should Carranza and Vil
la forces be allowed to conduct their
propaganda from this country?
Many Americans acquainted with
conditions in Mexico have more faith
in the ability of Huerta to establish
a stable govcrnmont than any of the
other leaders. At least he could do
as well as Villa if he bad the moral
support of the administration. Every
one acknowledges that what ls needed
in Mexico ls a strong dictator, and
Huerta sizes up to these specifica
tions better than any of the other
loaders. Of course, no one who has
any knowledge of Mexican afTairs
considers seriously any probability of
establishing a real republic in Mexi
co. Not over 15 or <?,0 per cent of
tho voting population of the country

laud the majority of the people do not
expect it. What the great mass of
Mexicans want ls an honest govern
ment which would give them an op
portunity to make a living without
interference of bands of robbers who
aro ravishing the country under the
guise of fighting for a principle.
Whatever should be based upon the
recognition of facts, and not upon
beautiful theories. The facts were
well understood at tho beginning by
a large class of our citizens who bad
learned, by close observation and ex
perience, the actual conditions in
Mexico. It would have been wise if
