Freedom as Christmas Present.
Atlanta, Ga., Dec 24.-Eugene V.
'Debs was formally notified to-day
that his ten-year eentcnco had beon
commuted to expire to-morrow, and,
ns far as could be learned, received
tho tidings calmly, reserving any
comment he might want to make un
til he is actually outside the walls of
the F?deral penitentiary.
Tho government will pr?vido lils
transpoitatton, live dollars in cash'
and a completo ou tnt of civilian j
clothes. He has his choice between
a dark blue or brown suit, but the
other garments aro uniform and in
clude a felt hat.
Tho Socialist loador has been
rooming in the hospital building dur
ing most of his tltme hore, nnd did
not mingle with the other inmates
generally.

warning against commercializing tho
notoriety which Eugene V. Debs has
recetvod, and '.ho hope that he may
"direct his talents to a useful pul
poso" was expressed in a statement
issued Monday by Attorney General
.Daugherty after a thirty-minute con
ference with tho Socialist leader a',
the Department of Justice.
Daugherty said that "no unusual
conditions" had been attached to the
commutation of sentence granted to
Debs for Ills release from tho Atlant i
prison on Christmas day.
"I have received a call from Mr.
Debs," the Attorney General said. "1
volunteered no advice to him and he
asked none. There were no unusual
conditions attached to his commuta
tion. His call upon mo was of his
own volition.
"I have nothing further to say re
garding Debs' call or regarding his
case, except that I hope he may di
rect his talents to a useful purpose.
And I trust the notoriety he has re
ceived may not be commercialized.
'I say this because I observe gather
ing about him nnd undertaking to
promoto him persons who have not
the best Interests of the country or
society at heart.
"His life's efforts, pursuing as he
has until now, when he is again a
free man, a theory erroneous In prin

of accomplishments, to other striving nobly, but in vain? In
