TO AID AN UNBORN BABY j
If Hamlet had lived in Canada he would have had
no reason to complain of the law's delays.
There lies in a jail at Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., a
.woman under sentence of death to be executed less
jthan four months from the date of the crime for
iwhich she is to be punished. The Canadian law
takes its highest vengeance in two months less than
the customary period given by a United States court
to a corporation found in criminal violation of a pub
lic law—to adjust its affairs to meet its changed con
It was Easter Sunday that Angelina Napolitana
Blew her husband at the Soo.
That was April 16. Three weeks from the Mon
day following she was indicted, and she has already
been tried, convicted, and sentenced to the gallows.
The case strongly illuminates the contrast be
tween the legal processes of Great Britain and its
colonies and those of the United States—the latter
made cumbrous by technical delay arising out of in
tricacies of practice; the English "and Canadian pro
cedure permitting no delay or appeal except for some
reason which goes to the heart of the cause before
This very expedition of the Canadian courts
makes the more urgent the call upon the men and
women of America to act at once if they would save
from the gallows the mother whose sad plight has
been made familiar to readers of the Times.
Vancouver's Embarassing Prosperity
Interesting news from Vancouver: They read "Progress
and Poverty'" and decided that it was good enough to try—in a limit
ed and tentative way.
So, they reduced the tax on improvements "which man made,"
and increased It on land "which God made," and which the presence
of the multitude had raised in value from the price of raw land to
that of city lots.
Why, Vancouver simply boomed! Money rushed Into improve
ments. The building record of 1910 surpassed that of the year be
fore by 86 per cent. But—Land values went skyward, too. Enemies
of the single tax are preparing for a collapse of prosperity, when they
will point the finger of scorn at the philosophy of Henry George.
What says Henry George, Jr. —"Congressman George," if you
''Land value taxation must be repeatedly advanced," he says
"»o as to leave but little of the increase m land values in the hands
of the landed Interests."
In other words, siphon those new values into the public treasury,
then let the money run out again in ways that will benefit the whole
people, so that they may have public Improvements without public
Try it, Vancouver! You've made a start. Now carry out the
doctrine to its logical conclusion and show the rest of us how i»
works. Perhaps you will give us a new world for an old one before
We know It!
Progress by Suffering
"<s•• When a fellow has the toothache, he first goes to his wife, to
be babied; then, buys some patent cure-all that cures nothing; but
when he has suffered enough, he inarches up to the dentist's chair,

ii v It is Just the same with a nation when it has political, social
\t or economic "toothache." It was so with the American colonies until
they finally got Dr. Washington to pull the aching molar of British
■ oppression. It was so with the slavery question. Every . soothing
remedy, every "patent medicine" compromise, was tried, but when

] On With Recall of the Judiciary!
You se« clearly that It's up to the courts to make your laws,
don't you? The U. S. supreme court in the Standard Oil oase leaves
It to the Inferior courts to say what trust is operating in "unreason
able" or in "reasonable" restraint of trade, crushing competition "un
reasonably" or "reasonably," holding yon by the throat, aa » con
sumer, "unreasonably" or "reasonably."
When we come to remember that the trusts sought to put this
power into the anti-trust law when that law was created and that
it was omitted because it was thought to be dangerous, a blind man
can see that the supreme court has simply <-na< i<il a law that was re
pudiated by the supposedly constituted law -making branch of govern
ment. In other words, when we get a congress that refuses to enact
bad legislation, the courts can and will do it.
Moreover, these supreme law-making judges are appointed for
life. You don't appoint them and you can't recall them, and yet they
make your laws.
Make no mistake, you are absolutely powerless. Whether you
shall be robbed by a trust or not is a matter wholly for the courts
to decide, no matter what laws your lawmakers in congress or other
We again say, "Make a constitution for men," and in the mak
ing be sure not to leave the lawmaking power In the hands of a
branch of government that can defeat and defy all other branches.

ELDEST OF HER FAMILY OF DOLLS

Mme. Heinrich is a collector of
dolls. She lives at Green Dragon
('amp, which la a quaint retreat
at La Jolla. near San Diego, Cal.
You musn't think that Mme.
Heinrlch's doll family Is an or

more Interesting than that of
either the late Queen Victoria or
the Queen of Holland. The eldest
of the Heinrlch dolls, for instance,
has Ellen Terry's hair. That's
literally true, and there's a pretty
story In It.
Mme. Heinrlch was a kindergar

Ellen Terry, was engaged in the
family of Gen. Palmer in Colorado
But the Palmer "babies grew
up and left their teacher, who
grieved for them ever after she
became private secretary to the
famous actress. The two went to
Paris together and there Ellen
Terry bought a wonderful French
doll and presented it to Mme.
"Here is a 'beautiful baby that

The doll was named Olive and
given a wig made of Ellen Terry's
own hair, "that wonderful wavy
gold hair," as Mme. Heinrich
says, and dressed In clothes made
from Miss Terry's and Sir Henry
Irving's stage clothes. Olive has
never grown up, and If you call
on the madame she will show you
this doll and many others.

dame, "that I have given so many
of them away, because here in
