States and Canada, by granting a
permanent injunction to Mr. Savage
against Messrs. Max Ilochstim and
Philip Blau, proprietors of the Or

who produced, without permission,
a German version of "The Merry

I BEATING A SHARK.
I A Rochester man, interested in our
I suggestion that the salary-loan sharks
I who fatten on the wages of badly paid
I clerks could not exist without the as-
I sistancc of the newspapers which
.1 )i print their advertisements, sends us
two items from a Rochester paper.
One is the five-line announcement of
D. H. Tolman, "offices in sixty-two
principal cities," that he loans money (
to salaried people without security.
The other clipping is the report of a
suit brought against Tolman by Paul
Laurent to recover $20, the amount
paid in excess of the principal and the
legal rate of interest of five successive
loans of $27 each, within a year. The
jury in the Municipal Court found in
Laurent's favor. It is a case which
should have wide publicity, but in his
letter our ""Rochester correspondent
makes this comment: "For my part,
I can not understand why the busi
ness office censor of the paper did
not blue-pencil this news item." Such
news usually is suppressed. To the
"Democrat and Chronicle," therefore,
are due all the more thanks for being
bold enough to print it.
The Women's Educational and ln
, dustrial Union of Boston backed a
; bill in the Massachusetts Legislature
J last year requiring full records to be
J made of salary loans, and adequate
inspection of the business maintained.
' A mass 'of striking evidence was col
lected and presented. And then:
' "The legislation asked for was en
acted last year, except that (and here
1 one may read how enthusiastic the
Massachusetts law-makers must have
been) the recording clause in the bill
(the clause that was most vital) was
. ti ls' and the penalty omitted. This
' much of a victory was won by one
vote after a fight in the Legislature
lasting over months. 'However, at al
most the same time the Governor
signed the bill, the Boston Police
1 Commission abolished the office of
Loan Inspector, making policemen
on the beat responsible for the ad
justment of complaints. Since that
time there has been, practically, no
attempt at inspection, and the law has
not materially affected the situation
hi When it comes to finding ways to
beat the law, these usurers can givo
the execrated corporation attorney
"cards and spades, and beat him out
a mile." But if such newspapers as
the Boston "Post" would refuse to
take their advertising, they would at
'1 once and very disastrously feel the
