ABUSE OF FREE SPEECH.
What is the legal and proper interpretation of
the constitutional right of free speech?
Existing conditions in industrial affairs will soon
. compel a judicial answer to this question. The
'teachings and practices of that branch of Socialism
known as the Industrial Workers of the World, its
.public advocacy of syndicalism and the use of sa
botage (the destruction of machinery aiid material
ly dissatisfied workmen, or the lawless element of
society) must be restrained.
The provision of the Constitution regarding free
" speech is as follows:
"K ery person may freely speak, write and pub
lish his sentiments upon all subjects, being respon
sible for the abuse of that right."
Certainly it is high time for a legal determination
of what constitutes an "abuse of that right."
A case which will determine the question is now
well advanced in the courts. An I. W. W. organ
izer., in addressing strikers at Paterson, N. J., ad
votoled the desTrVwtiou of machinery and raw ma
terial and gave specilic directions as to the manner
of destruction, lie was arrested, and charged with
"advocating the destruction of private property."
Admitting the correctness of the charge, he offered
as a defense that he had kept within his constitu
tional rights. However, he was adjudged guilty
and remanded for sentence. Undoubtedly'appeals
will be taken until a decision is rendered by the
court of final resort.

i union advised the striking waiters and cooks to

HISTORIC AND EMPHATIC "NO."
Secretary Bryan, in view of the approaching
Chautauqua season, asked Congress for an appro
priation for a " special assistant Secretary of
State," to be appointed by himself. The presump
tion was he desired a manwho would be respon
sible to him and not to the President, the Senate
or the country. The salary of the special assilsant
which Mr. Bryan desired to leave on the job was to
have been 4,500 a year.
Bryan's proposition was up before the House.
The arguments had been heard and the roll had
been called. The vote' was 217 against the Pre
mier's special assistant.
"Call my name," growled Speaker Clark.
"Mr. Clark," called the .clerk.
The Speaker's voice came like an explosion. It
was a short word, but its mingled growl and roar
voiced revenge for treason at Baltimore and all
pent up hate of two year's reflection.
"When the House heard the Speaker's voice and
recalled the events of the last two years there went
up a round of applause seldom equaled in that body.

UNCLE SAM IN BUSINESS. .
More thr.n two billion board-feet of timber with
a value of four and a half million dollars on .the
stump were sold by the National Forest Service last
year. This is much more than double tho sales
of the preceding year and indicates that UncleSam
in given eases can get down to business very sat

still larger sales are in prospect.
Some twenty million head of livestock now graze
in national forests, and receipts from that source
in 1013 exceeded a million dollars. "With that and
the timber sales, a number of national forests are
now self-sustaining, and probably in a few years
receipts from the forests will pay the whole cost of
"The forests are being made increasingly acces
sible," says the report. "More than three hundred
and fifty miles of road, nearly three hundred miles
of fire lines, four thousand miles of telephone lines,
and twenty-six hundred miles of trails were built.
Use of the forests for recreation is greatly in
creasing and the transient population is now reck
oned at a million and a half. The work of fire pro
tection steadily advances, and last year's fire loss
due partly, no doubt, to favorable weather was
only sixty seven thousand dollars.
Incidentally, including special funds to Arizona

.J. WEEKLY SPORT LETTER.
(By C. II. ZUBE1U
Cincinnati, July 21, 101. ,
Never in the history of bine ball has
thero been such nctivity shown in the
middle of tho season to build up n team
as is being displayed at present by
tho Cincinnati club. No limit is being
placed on Manager Ilerzog in his ex
penditure for tho right sort of talent to
make tho Beds a first division possi
bility, and as a result of this liberal
policy scouts are everywhere trying to
uncover promising talent that will ini
proo on the present line-up of the team.
Tho purchase of Outfielder Twombly
and Inflelder Mollwitz last week is
but the fore-runner of several other
transactions which will bring now tal
ent into local fold. President Herrmann
nnd Manager Herog are determined
that thero shall be nothing but live
talent on the team, and to that end are
having the minor league gone thniusrli
with a fmetooth comb to got tho riu'ht
sort of material for rebuilding up the
Beds. Sumo idea of the changes that
liaye taken place on tho team since the
beginning of tho season of ISM.'l, when
.Ion Tinker was in command, may lie
gained from the fact that Tom Clarke
and Hube Benton are the only player,
now with the Beds who were on the
team when Tinker too hold.
The race in the National League is
tightening up daily, Hue to the fact
that the New Yorks have not been win

are beginning to threaten tho teams in
