Where Mill Of Justice Grinds Anything But Slowly
N M Walker
AN HOUR IN POLICE COURT. 1 '
The mills of the gods grind tiowly,
but not so do the mills of police court
justice. There is no undue haste:
everyone gets a fair chance to tell his
hard luck story and it usually is a
hard luck story and the unfortunate
may even demand a jury trial if he
thinks the recorder will not mete out
justice as the blind goddess weighs it.
But there is no delay, no lost -motion
about the machine which grinds out
daily sentences for the riff-raff, the
floating scum of the south side, who
are corraled behind the railing in the
prisoners dock at the Stanton street
station, upstairs, first door ahead.
It is not much of a courtroom as
temples of justice go no high and im

judge views the human family assem
bled at the bar of justice. It is shirt

Chicago III., July 29. A coroner's

early this morning that Mr Raw,ndied
from a shot received from his twn

intent this jury is unable to determine
except that the location of the wound
and the type of the revolver render ihe
accident theory less probable."
The verdict is worded so as to show
that the jurors believed Mr. Rawn ic
sponsible for his own fleam, but left
the question of accident or suicide to
be fought out by the family and ihe in

History o Peace Congress.
The peace congresses oo back to
143 when an International convention
of the friends of peace, promoted by
the American Peace society, was held
in London. This was three years af
ter xhe publication of William Ladd's
"Essay on a Congress of Nations", a
work that anticipated The Hague con
ferences which the peace congresses
of today support. Other congresses
followed at Brussels 1848, Paris 1849,
Frankfort 1850, and London 1851.
EHhu Burritt, their inspiring genius,
pleaded for a court and congress of
nations, together with a code of Inter-
In these congresses Richard Cobden
and many British publicists took (part.
Victor Hugo, who championed them,
electrified the convention at Paris by
prophesying a federated world govern
ed by ballots instead of bullets and
placed under the arbitrament of a
great sovereign senate. "A. day will
come," he said, "when a cannon will be
exhibited in public museums, just as an
instrument of torture is now, and peo
ple will be astonished how such a
tiling could have been." Filled with
the eloquent speaker's enthusiasm for
humanity, men in this audience "em
braced each other, waved their hats
and handkerchiefs to him and, led by
Cbbden, gave him rounds of hurrahs.
Organised peace work was seriously
interfered with for a whole generation
by the period of wars beginning with
j the Crimean war In Europe and the
civil war in America. Sentiment for it
revived, however, partly as a reaction
