The christian nations are using their good offices that the warring
factions in China shall cease their clamor, and preserve the Christmas
time from strife.
The new idea of settling international disputes through judicial pro

passions must be taken into account, still the world's peace in the fu

Those who still affirm that force

iffk VER in Milwaukee a municipal judge, whom we suppose to be a
U U Socialist since that party controls most of the offices of the city,
has discovered a most progressive way of dealing: out justice. He
had before him a man who had killed
instead of locking up the slayer and
earnings, the up-to-date judge condemned him to undertake the sup
port of the family of his victim as
the manslayer is given a chance to
the unfortunate incidental sufferers
We shall not discuss the merit of the judgment. Our one purpose
in referring to it at all is to comment on the remarkable modernity of
the penology it involves. It is right in line with the most recent thought,
but as a matter of hard fact it is the oldest of all ideas about punishing
crime, and so far from being progressive in any sense is violently re
actionary and a reversion to methods that mankind adopted in the
earliest days of its association into society. What is it but the ancient
wergild of the Teuton, the manwryth of the Anglo-Saxon?
When one Anglo-Saxon slew another the relatives of the dead man
had a choice between. two courses. They could begin a blood feud,
taking the life of the killer in return
the chance that the other family would m their turn demand life for
life, with certain consequences of a private war that would last as long
as there were folk on either side to die; or they could compoundthe of
fenseby accepting blood-money, the sum to be paid depending upon the
social standing of the deceased and being regulated by a sliding scale
of values, so many shillings for a churl and so many more very many
more for an earl.
The wergild was compensation for the loss of the services of the dead
man to his relatives, and what else is the theory of the Milwaukee
judge? Humanity started with this very idea, abandoned it as inex
pedient and developed a substitute in the punishment 'of the criminals
by the state for the wrong done to the public. . Now we go away back
to first principles, and call it progress.
How many other new notions are of the same stripe? What is the
sacred I , R. & R. itself but an effort to return to tribal government.
E scatter seeds with careless hand
And dream we ne'er shall see them more,
But for a thousand years
Their fruit appears
In weeds that mar the land
Or healthful store.
The deeds we do, the words we say,
Into still air they seem to fleet.
We count them ever past,
But they shall last
In the dread judgment they

For the love's sake of brethern dear,

Lest in that world their cry

the solicitous napkin knight, 'Who

Johnson, with his characteristic offi-

braced a friend and executed the
wiggly contortions and steps while
his beautiful but Amazonian
princess approved and adored.
"This danco was not naughty,"
said the prince, "till Americans
demanded something with local
color, and now it resembles the
Parisian cancan or hoochee-coochee.
I regret to state it is too often given
with the artist adorned in no other
apparel than a happy smile and a
girdle of brightly tinted feathers.
But I hear Chicago likes everything
unique, and beliove me this
dance is warranted to prevent super
fluous flesh from accumulating
