his disagreement, but bo
does make a few very >er'tlrieht re
marks lu his acquiescence. For in
"Tho highest Judicial .authority,
tho Supremo Court of tho State, has
Spoken, Tho status of the parole sys
tom has hoon deflneu. Tho Interpre
tation of tho la\v as thus decreed ls
tho law, and is to ho obeyed and re
spited hy all. lt ls well that tho is
sue has hoon dollnitoly determined.
lt is surprising that a matter affect
ing tlie liborty of people and the au
thority of the Executive lias boon,so
long left unsettled, lt means that tho
parole system, as understood for all
these years, will practically bo aban
doned. Tho system of paroles, as pre
viously understood, soemod to bo a
wise ono if properly exercised and
rightfully onforcod. The word parole
will hardly be used hy, Executives in
futuro acts of clemency. Thoce al
ready parolod will bo HIP only bene
ficiaries of tho decision. My commo
tion with tho matter waa wholly im
personal. 1, of course, was morely
acting for tho public, and as hereto
fore legally understood, lt ls to bo
regretted that another weapon for
law enforcement I3 found defective,
hut lt may servo to stir tho public to
action. Tho decision of the court will
tend to emphasize tho general opin
ion that the proc?dure incident to
our criminal laws'is sadly in need of
revision. Tho peoplo will unques
tionably demand that less loopholes
be furnished law violators by means
of technicalities and delays, and that
law Guiforceniout he not retarded, de
layed and nullified by means of legal
red tape or court machinery or am
biguity of terms."
And Governor Harvey is right, lt
may ho-doubtless ls-that tho de
cision of the Supremo Court in the
Crooks case represents just what tho
makers of the law intonded. If that
he so, however, lt would have boen
in finitely better had there never been
made any parole provision. The ex
ercise of the parolo by a Governor ls
nothing less than an act of extracting
the teeth from a law violated-un
der the decision of the court. Too
many loopholes and technical modos
lof escape from punishment have been
thrown Into and about the various
criminal laws. Wo may he suro of
one thing, however, and that is that
there will be no moro paroles during
Mr. Harvey's all too short adminis
tration. Xor do we believe that Gov
ernor-elect McLeod will exercise the
prerogative of issuing a parole under
existing conditions. No Governor who
really has at heart the good of the
State and the well-being of society in
tho State would exorcise this power
until there is a change in tho law in
respect to the granting of paroles.
It is (or was) a good thing under
the old acceptance of the meaning of
tho system; it it now a deadjetter
and its exercise, In tho lighfof the
court decision, would be a damning
spot on good government.

The proposition bas been made
by Dr. .John H. Finley, editor of the
New York Times, that tho debts of
tho Allies be given to tho public
schools'of this country. Dr. Finley
seems to have moro faith In those
Allied debts than most Americans.
lt ls nt least refreshing to know that
there is yet hope in some quarters as
to these debts being paid, and it mav
be that-some time-they will be
In tho meantime, however, the
public schools need cash. Let us not
depend on a lot of very doubtful
debts to bequeath to so Important an
enterprise as our public schools.
We notice by the Anderson papers
that Judge W. P. Greene was right
