of the Fin.le dispute' over railway

along the same lines as those in the
herma.n treaty, but the conditions
will be easier.

Pre-war debts will ne shared by
the Czecho-Slovaks, Jugo Slavs, Hun
garians and Austrians, in proportion
to their interest in obligations while
they wore a part of the empire. A
permanent financial commission will
be established to handle indemni
ties. Provisions for the trial of
those guilty of criminal acts will be
the same as thosein the German
treaty. There will be no provisions
for the trial on political charges,
thus former Emperor Karl will
escape the fate of Wilhelm.
Navigation of. the Danube will be
superintended by a special commis
sion under the league of nations.
Military terms will be largely a mat
ter of the allies going on record as
to what their demands are, as Aus
tria-Hungary's defeat is so complete,
it is doubtful if any large number
of guns, or very much ammunition
can be found. There certainly is no
organization left and the Hungarian
fortifications are practically useless.

ond, she asks that the 400,000 Ger

soon as the treaty is signed, that
they, be guaranteed adequate food
and clothing. Both sides are now
conducting a propaganda as vigorous
as that during the war.

New York, May 12.-The Victory

Saturday, signalizing the success o;
the Victory loan. For more than
two weeks the Victory ship has day
by day recorded the loan's progre:s,
and when success seemed assured,
steamed into the harbor. Navy offi

were complete, were so certain of the
outcome, they flashed radio orders to
have the vessel move in by the
Statute of Liberty at 3 o'clock. The
Victory ship carried a letter from

The story of the woman, one of
the most dramatic that has been re

judge and on the woman's statement
that her former husband, a Japanese,
had made arrangements for her to
enter the Warm Springs asylum for
treatment for the drug habit, she was
given a chance.

JOS.EPH R. JACKSON'S DEFENSE
OF THE COJU TV ATTORNEY
Comes now County Atlcrney .Jos-I
eph R. Jackson, in a statementl. gi\
en to the "lpress" on Saturday night .
and decorates himself with so matny
medals that he well might be the
envy of the now defunct 'W ilhelm of
Prussia in his palmiest days. And,
like Wilhelm the Declaimer, the
county attorney bids fair to join the
defunct class, and for the salme' roe
Mr. Jackson, besides being prlou:l
in commendation of the counti at
torney, states his position in the
Morrissey case "absoluttely andl
squarely." He leaves no one int
doubt. He is not with the Bulletins
and the thousands of citizens whIo
want to put an end to "prot etled'
crime, nor is he with Morristsey or
his "friends," most of whom can be
found in two places---the sixth floni
of the Hennessy building and tI-,e
Miner's editorial sanctum.
Mr. Jackson, after reiding the,
Bulletin "carefully" Saturday, states
in language which appears to be
tinged with regret, that there is no
cause for a criminal libel action.
A careful reading of the-county at
torney's statement establishes his
present status as one of benevolent
neutrality toward Morrissey.
With the facts and justice on ite
one side and the pressure of corruptl
power on the other this is a difficult
position the county attorney has tak-
en. It is one that cannot be success
fully maintained in the Morrissey
case. Two other choices remain---Mr.
Jackson may throw in his lot with
corrupt power, but the county attor
ney must, if he lives up to his oath
of office, take up the cudgels on the
side of justice.
It is the boast of the Bulletin that
it prints the news, and it is with un
alloyed pleasure that we give the
widest possible publicity to Mr.
Jackson's assertion that he has con
ducted the office of county attorney
in "a fair, scrupulously holnest anti
impersonal spirit." We have thou
sands of readers who can not be
reached by the "press" which sup
ports the city hall shambles, and we
hope the county attorney appreciates
the favor we confer in emphasizing a
portion of his statement, which is
It is also news to the Bulletin thait
Mr. Jackson was "so tired of listen
ing to second, third and fourth hand
information." Into our simple and
non-legal mind had crept the imnpres
sion, from attendance at the inquest,
that the county attorney was wearied
by first hand, eye-witness testimony.
We are glad to be informed other
wise and will reserve judgment on
this point until we observe how the
county attorney assimilates further
first hand information in the next
round of Mr. Morrissey's battle for
The Bulletin has received abun
dance of first hand information in
connection with the Morrissey case,
and we have no doubt that the peo
ple who-gave it were and are yet un
der the same impression as we, that
the county attorney was not anxious
to make use of it---and for the fur
ther reason they, no doubt, feared
"power behind." Be that as it may,
the future will tell, and we are will
ing to be convinced-not that the
chief of detectives did not unmerci
fully beat his unfortunate wife prior
to her death, for that has already
been established, but that the coun
ty attorney intends to make an hon
e.t and sincere effort to prosecute
law violation, regardless of the "pow

suit against the Chicago Tribune,

when The Tribune editorially re
