Correspondence,Ho Tora pa, tho.
most powerful >p?liUcal papr, prints
on tue front -pago a chapter on tho
censorship, entitled thc Ccn??r and
the Law. :ft saya: '"fbero;nfe Insti
tutions which Improve with:-custom.
Such ls not the caso of tho censor
ship. This establishment, bom of tho
meeting of our democratic regime with
the war, attributes to Itself tho Tights
and prerogatives ol a king. The law
of August C, 1014, prohibits "all in
formation or articles concerning mili
tary or diplomatic oporntions of a na
ture favoring tho enomy and exercis
ing au unfavorable influence on thc
spirit Of tho anny and tho people."
"An long as the censor obnorven
these limited proscriptions it remains,
as tho law provides, the collaborator
of'tito press! In a common effort for
tho national defense Hut lt aspires
to extend its preventive jurisdiction
over everything in tho nowspapors.
Articles of a political nature, parlla
; 'mentar'y Information or ovon trifling
j local events do not escape its ausplc
S lous rigor. It watches uot only tho
'( frontier but the Capitol, which does
Cot need tho censor to defend it.

councillor ot Paris desired that tho

Cause for Tear?.
T?io conversation In a club tho
other night turned to tho question of
law and logal lights, says Tho Phllo
dephia Telegraph, when this little
iucidont waa recalled:
During the trial of a civil caso In
tho west sonic limo ago a lawyer
named Smith-made an Impassioned
appeal to tao Jury, in which at ono
point lie referred to himself.

exclaimed, "io ,a*ll. I have on earth, it

leave, io my children.
A minuto or'so later a brother luw
yer'in, the court room was obsorved

"WCi.y, Joniis!" oxcinlmed a friend

"I can't help lt," was tho tear.',il
rejoinder of Jones. "It mukes mo saa
to think what a small inhcritaneo
Smith's children will have."

cord?. That I? wast w? Savio boen

censored soon ceased to see. This
incident proves that if tho government
does not oxerclao over the censorship

must re?oive M. Peytral's text.
"Tho truth Is that tho censor In
