WHAT WE CAN DO.
AS THE put!:? r) a long breath of rr-arniranrp on'1 hope that
the would-be rseaaeirTs bullet ha failed neriounly to harm the
full and vigorou life at which it was aimed, the old problem
present itself anew: How can we protect our men in public life from I
the dangerous obsessions of weak, overwrought minds?
More and more we are forced to the hard conclusion that there
it no sure wav. The hodyguimls, the rigors of 100 Nt police, that eur-
round foreign potentates arc repcllant to our nalioniil instinct and j
distasteful to our public men. We are proud that in (his country of,
freedom and tolerance a man may go among his fellows and speak his )
mind on the highest matters of policy and statecraft without sulTcr- i
ing greater violence than honest Mow of mind upon mind and opinion '
Yet. among a hundred million people, there is always the danger
f l:ie unbalanced mind in which the reiteration of an idea, the din- '
fling of a phrase, tlrr chance of a dream may stir up an insanity as dan
gerous in its effects as the violent frenzy of the lover mad with jeal
ousy or the raving lunatic who ees every man about to murder him.
A diseased brain distorts even the highest principles nnd sanctions to
dire ends. How many asain have claimed that the Bible directed
Nor does it seem ' mutter whether governments nnd beliefs be
free or tyrannical. A Kavaillac strikes down a Henry IV., a Hrutns
tabs a Caessr, Charlotte Corday kills a Marat, an anarchist hurls
bomb at a Canr and we blame the government, the system, the prin-!
ciple of oppression involved. Yet. plainly, under our own enlightened
institutions may develop a mania impelling an assassin to a deed that
trikes a vicious blow at the very institutions he imagines himself to
be defending. An inflamed and disea-ed mind is pushed to the san e
wild extreme by jealous devotion to a free nnd liberal rrovernnient ns
by the memory of centuries of tvrnnnv nnd injustice.
The assassin, irresponsible or responsible, is one of the most
elusive dangers a nation must face. Pnnllh swift and snrelv: sur
round otir men in public life with such police protection as our na
tional instincts and their own permit : above all, discourage ami i
oppress by vigorous means all stirring and suggestion of lawlessness
nd incendiarism in our public discussions. These things we can do.

SETTING A NEW PACE.
IUE people of this State cannot be too grateful to Justice Ooff
for the new standard of court pro lure which he has intro
duced in the Becker trial.
The Krening World yesterday described in detail the various wav
n which this keen-eyed, alert, old Master of the Hench has succeeded
ir infusing new speed, seriousness and dignity into the conduct of a
big criminal case. With summary firmness and finality he has cut
out unneccisary questionings and parleying, compressed the selection
of a jury into one of the shortest periods ever known in a murder enso
hereabouts, compelled lawyers to he courteous to witnesses and r
eped fill to the Court, nipped in the bud all schemes to secure adjourn
ments and holidays and refused to listen to footless arguments against
The defense ha already entered a formidable list of exception.!
which may or may not prove grounds for new trials. W hatever the
Outcome, the public is watching with interest and warm approval Jus
tice Ooff's demonstration that a big criminal trial in New York State
reed not of necessity he either run to tit the Convenience ami private
ends of the lawyers concerned or turned into a wearisome and dis
graceful spectacle of deliberate dodging and delay.
