INVALID WOMAN BEGS TO BE KILLED
LAW'S STERN DECREE
TAKES FIVE BABIES
FROM THEIR MOTHER
Charles Hirst, the Carbonado miner, was given his live little
< Inlilnn with his divorce today, but he claimed Jive little broken
In..its nn.l saw the wife who bore them walk from the court In
tears, a broken woman.
When Judge Card entered his court this morning he was
In miil to say to a friend, "1 wish someone else had this task of
mine today. I wisli some greater mind might tell me what to do
with these children."
Thirty minutes later one of the
most pitiful scenes that was ever
'Witnessed in a Pierce county
court took place before Judge
Curd. The judge covered his
eyes and retired from the bench
to his private office.
Half a hundred men and worn
icn, who, interested in the Hirst
divorce, had come to hear the last
chapter read, bowed their heads,
their eyes in tears.
Ab Mrs. Hirst, holding a
drenched handkerchief to her
face, fled from the court, her
children followed, Hita, the eld
est, carrying the infant Everal,
all of them crying bitterly. Hirst,
who had just heard his wife of
13 years termed an habitual
drunkard and unworthy of the
children she had brought into the
■world, sat glued to his seat for a
moment, then followed his brok
en family.
In the corridor outside Mrs.
Hirst turned to kiss her 'babies
good-bye for the last time.
"Oh, my God," was all she
■aid, as she dropped to her knees
and clasped them to her, kissing
each one in a passion of tender
ness.
And kneeling there on the
stones, her little ones on their
knees about her, the mother or
fered up a prayer, the last appeal
for their safety.
"Oh, God, help me to bear up,
and bless my babies."
A crowd had gathered about
the corridor. One by one they
turned away, saying nothing,
their heads bent down, and lert
the family alone for their last
moments together.
Grief, misery, despair were
■written on the mother's features
as Bhe lifted the baby Everal
>from the floor. The little group
stood in the great hallway tor
half an hour, the children cling
ing to their mother, baby Everal
crying loudly with the rest, be
cause they cried and because he
did not know why.
Hirst at last approached and
tried to Boothe them.
"Come," he said.
"Don't speak to me," cried
Rita, the oldest girl of 12 years.
"I want my mother with me all
the time."
And the others who knew the
Import of the court's decree,
rringed from him us he grasped
them by the arm.
Unable to persade them to fol
low him away, he tore Baby
Everal from his mother's arms,
as the woman screamed agoniz
ingly, and leaned against the wall
for support.
•'This thing cannot go on,"
crlert J. F. I.«dwldge, a court re-
Vtirter, who hurried towards the
group. "I cannot stand It."
And leading the way to a priv
ate room, Ledwidge showed tne
divorced husband and wife and
tnetr children, that are no longer
the mother's, inside, Here the
babies huddled in a corner, their
mother the center of the group,
while Hirst departed to find a
temporary place for the Httte onesj
in a nurßery. -

COURTS MUST
BEREFORMED
SAYS JURIST
(By United Press Leased Wire.)
TROY, N. V., Jan. 28.—Tliat
American administration of jus
tice must be radically reformed if
revolution would be avoided is the
opinion today of Supreme Justice
Wesley Howard, as -expressed in
an address before the alumni of
LaSalle institute here. He said:
"J. Foulke Brandt, an obscure
valet and who is not guilty of the
crime of which he is accused, is
sentenced to jail for 30 years,
while Joseph G. Robin, million
aire wrecker of banks and homes,
goes to jail for a year. Charles
W, Morse, who pyramided banks
and juggled millions, escapes
from prison because he is lit,
while a convict in the next cell,
who perhaps stole a coat, lan
guishes with sickness until he
dies.
"The people are becoming im
patient at these discrepancies of
justice and are demanding re
form with a louder voice every
day."

MISMANAGED,
DECLARES
MILLS
After n short but spirited star
chamber session this morning in
the mayor's private office the city
commissioners emerged with the
Hans Pedcrson matter still un
settled. Commissioner Lawson
now wants to pay Pederson about
$00,000. Some of the other com
missioners are inclined to ques
tion some of his figures. Com
missioner Kreeland has come al
most to the point where he would
like to see the whole thing venti
lated in court.
After the strident tones of
Mayor Seymour and the gruff
pronunciamentoes of Lawson had
floated through the cedar door
Commissioner Mills was heard to
remark with emphasis:
"Well, I just want to say right
now, I never saw a job of work so
mismanaged in my life."
That seemed a clincher for the
star chamber sitting broke up
and the commission scattered.
MURRAY VERY
SICK; SENT
HOME
Attorney J. Matthew Murray
may never be tried on the accusa
tion of prompting perjury.
The young lawyer was today
removed from his county jail cell
to his home, dangerously ill from
pneumonia and throat affections.
A cash bond of $2 50 was al
lowed by the court when it was
found that Murray's condition
was serious. The bond was low
ered to avoid paying for a guard
for Murray while he is out of Jail.
Murray was to have entered a
plea Monday before Judge Clif
ford, but was too 111 to be taken
to court.

FATHER CERTAINLY IS A SELFISH BEAST
YOUNGEST wage-workers in the world are
these little New York child models.
\«-w York luis (In smallest wogc-dimcrs in the world, mid
a liii'kc number of them. There ure babies only six months old
-ii i>]ii>t-i iiiii their families by dully work. Many of then hnve
litertilly cut tlieir first teeth and learned to speak their first
words in the pliwes where they "work," and the entrances to
some of those places are littered with milk hollies delivered
tliere for the infants' feeding.
There is little cruelty or hardship, liowever, in this "work."
It consists in posing for photographers nnd illustrators.
The babies are artists' models, and have only lo look sweet
nnd happy to earn tlieir wages of from s^ to .S«', a day. If they
wen abused, or ill, or miscialil ■■. they would not be in demand,
ho ihe baby models arc a healthy, cheerful lot.
It is no uncommon thing, in down-town commercial build
ings, lo catch sight of one of these little todtlleis, on her way to
v studio with her mother, smiling brightly at everybody in the
vicinity, and stretching her tiny limbs to push the elevator
button herself.
It is the advertising man that has brought these infants
into tin- world of business. He recognize! the lure of .> baby's
face, and its power to get the attention and sympathy of every
woman who sees it. That is why more and more pretty baby
faces smile at the public from the advertising pages of news
papers and magazines. The little models arc in demand, too,
by the artists who illustrate stories for the magazines.
TACOMA BUSINESS MEN
GET THE WORST OF IT
BY LOCAL PHONE PLAN
C. M. Fassett, commissioner of
public utilities of the city o*
Spokane, wrote a lengthy letter
to Mayor Seymour today detail
ing statistics showing how Spo
kane and Tacoma were getting
the worst of it in the matter of
telephone rates. He suggests
that the two cities get together to
fight tho phone company for low
er rates.
Passett mentioned the fact that
the company in Spokane had cut
out the two party business phones
to the detriment of the small
business offices. Lob Angeles
with three times the population
of eittier Spokane or Tacoma gets
business telephones for from
$3.75 to $5.25 and residences for
$2.25 and $2, he cited. This Is
cheaper than Tacoma where rates
are $2 and $3 for house phones
and $4 and $t> for business. Yet

"The sin against, my fellow-

it will be in having let me live—
in condemning me for the rest of
my years to the most horrible tor

"Euthanasia" is the scientific
name for the thing which Mrs.
Harris demands. This compre

I should not demand death. I

They are rotting away. This
