EDWARD A. BELCHER, former su
perior judge of San Francisco,
contributed the following article
on "Treason" to the Friday
morning issue of the Los Angeles
In view of the activities of the
1. W. V. and of certain hyphen
ates in the past few weekp, espe
cially throughout the Pacific and
the Middle Western States, it
would seem that everyone ought
to kDow what constitutes treason
against the United States. I used
the word "hyphenates" in its crit
icisable sense, i. e., as meaning
those of foreign birth residing
within the United States who, in
words or deeds, favor the enemies
of the United States as against the
United States, and do not compre
hend therein those foreign-born
who have proved themselves to
be Americans. The hyphen is not
the crux, but the man's heart,
whether that is at the American
end of the hyphen whether the
man is wholly committed to the
United States and unreservedly
against her enemies. For no
man can serve two masters. From
of old the command has ever
been the same: "Choose ye this"
day whom ye shall serve!" As
touching the I. W. V.. they make
a pretense that their activities are
purely those of labor; so McNam
ara and his cobombers pretended
in the Los Angeles criminal
trials; but murder was shown to
have been murder and punishment
was awarded accordingly. So,
treason is treason; and it may be
Protean may assume a hundred
different forms. It is to be re
- membered, also, that the activi
ties of the I. W. W. were deferred
until after the United States was
at war with Germany.
The law makes no distinctions
in treason. There is no half-treason.
Any treason is all treason.
And the alien may take no com
fort in that not having become a
citizen of the United States .he is
not amenable to the law of trea
son. He is amenable. The high
est duty of government is self
protection; and as treason strikes
against the life of government,
the alien is subject to the law of
treason equally with the native
born or naturalized citizen be
cause he live here for the time
being. The supreme court of the
United States made that clear lone?
years ago: Carlisle vs. U. S., 16
Wall, 147: "The alien, whilst domi
ciled in this country, owes a local
end temporary allegiance, which
continues during the period of his
residence." In its decision the
court followed and adopted the
broad principle laid down by
Daniel Webster when Secretary of
State: "Independently of a resi
dence with intention to continue
such residence; Independently of
any . domiciliation; independently
cf the taking of any oath of alleg
iance, it is well known that, by
the public law, an alien or a
stranger-born, for so long a time
as he continues within the domin
ions of a foreign government,
owes obedience to the laws of that
government, and may be PUN
ISHED for treason or other crimes
as a native-born subject might be.
(6 Web. Wks. 526).
By the statutes of the United
states treason is defined as fol
lows: "(1) Whoever, owing allegiance
to the United States, levies war
against them, or adheres to their
enemies giving them aid and com
fort within the United States or
elsewhere, is guilty of treason.
"(2.) Whoever is convicted of
treason shall suffer death, or at
the discretion of the court, shall
be imprisoned not less than five
years, and fined not less than ten
thosand dollars, to be levied on
and collected out of all his prop
erty, real and personal, of which
he was the owner at the time of
committing such treason, no sale
or conveyance to the contrary
notwithstanding, and every person
so convicted of treason shall more
over be incapable of holding any
office under the United States."
Nor is one guiltless if he knows
of treason and fails to disclose it.
Like a receiver of stolen goods,
he is particeps criminis unless he
or she at once makes the fact
known to the government; for to
conceal treason is to commit trea
son. This sort of treason is
called "misprison of treason," and
it includes all, whether alien or
native or naturalized. The follow
ing is the section of the statute
relating to it: "(3) Whoever,
owing allegiance to the United
States" (see Webster's alien
principle) "and having knowledge
of the commission of any treason
against them, conceals, and does
not, as soon as may be, disclose
and make known the same to the
president or to some judge of the
United States, or to the governor
or to some judge or justice of a
particular state, is guilty of mis
prision of treason and shall be
imprisoned not more than seven
years and fined not more than one
In view of the foregoing the ex
pediency of following the United
States Attorney-General's advice
"keep your mouth shut; obey the
law" would seem manifest.

Dr. R. B. Durfee, City and
County Bacteriologist, Com

oikk and sraodh
fcr easy staning
Ilisbee is a remarkably healthy
town. This is the seuse of a report on
vital statistics, for the year 1916,
which has just been compiled by Dr.
U. B. Durfee, city and county bacteri
ologist. The average death rate in the
country is much larger than in Bib
bee, which is 11.4 per cent..
Dr. Durfee has been at work on the
table statistics for several weeks. The
information, on which he has based
his report has been gathered after
much labor and patience. Some of his
findings are not only very interesting
but highly instructive.
During 1916, 152 people died in Bis
bee. Thirty of this number were un
der one year of age; nine were be
tween one and two years of age; six
were between two and five years of
age, five were from five to ten years
old, thirteen were between ten and
twenty; twenty-five were from twenty
to thirty, twenty-nine were from th'ity
to forty and thirti-five were above for
ty. Fifty-seven females and ninety-
five males constituted the total. This
was divided into 122 people, oiher than
Mexicans, twenty-seven Mexicans, and
General diseases claimed twenty-
nine people; diseases of the nervous
system, ten; diseases of the circula
tory system, seven; diseases of the
respiratory system, thirty-six; diseases
of the digestive system, twenty; of
the genito-urinary system, twelve; of
the puerperal state, two; of disease of
early infancy, fourteen; o old age, 1;
caused by affectiotis produced by ex
ternal causes, fifteen; and ill defined
Typhoid fever claimed but one vicv
tim in Bisbee in 1916. Diptheria, al
so claimed one. Dysentary took two
and Erysipelas the same number.
Tuberculosis, of the lungs caused
the 'death of twelve; cancer caused
two deaths. No death was caused by
acute alcoholism. Cerebrospinal-men-
Ingitis took eight people to their
graves during the year.
Diseases of the respiratory system
were frequent in Bisbee during 1916
end took a large part pf the entire
death toll. Affection of the larynx
caused one death; acute bronchitis.
noe; chronic bronchitis, one; broncho
pneumonia, seven; lobar pneumonia,
sixteen; pneumonia undefined, ten.
Disease of the digestive system
were fairly frequent and in one of the
divisions of this branch, caused the
death of ten people. Enteritis and rM
arrohea, caused largely, according to
Dr. Durfee, by bad milk and water
were the largest contributing factors
in this division.
Of deaths, due to affections produc
ed by external causes, suicide ac
counts for three, burns for one, acci
dents for six; homocide for four and
fractures for one.
LOCAL BUYER WRITES

The following interesting letier has
been received from Aliss Margaret Ho

Phelps-Dodge store who is now in the
New York market :
"In reterence to the suits and coats
that I have purchased for fall. I may
say they are heavily trimmed with fur

ric of the tamers hair finish, flecked
"The colors which promise to be
strong are toupe and brouu and a lew
greens, with, of course-, the usual nit
vies, also some purples or Burgundy.
"About the coats; Pom-pom is the
ne-.v material which resembles sort of
a Chinchilla. They are also using
broad cloth and velours, Bolivia and
some Jersey. The colors which prom
ise to be strong are about the si'me
colors as in the suits, excepting IVkin
blue which is the Chinese blue of last
"About dresses: The fabric which Is
invariably used is satin for fall and
the styles are mostly the peg top and
narrow bottom. These drosses are in
the popular price model and are most
ly plain tailored. Tiie dinner dresses
are, of course, more fancy, with com
bination of Georgette."
