ONE CENT IN OITY. ON TRAINS, FIVE CENTS.
HOGAN TRIAL IS ON TOMORROW
TO GET II HEARING
Tomorrow will occur the trial of City Detective Hogan
on the charge of grafting Miss Libbie Morgan, keeper ot a
lodging house, as shown by the testimony introduced be
fore the meeting of the city council.
It is believed that the purposes of the hearing are not
hostile to Hogan, and that the outcome will be his rein
statement. In view of the police board's refusal to sus
pend former Chief Sullivan, Officer Hogan has been un
fairly, dealt with. He should be accorded the same treat
ment as Sullivan, as Hogan was not found guilty, while
Sullivan was. Sullivan was not suspended but Hogan was,
and that is the way Pratt police justice runs*.
Men who have followed the developments in the police
inuiry take no stock in the investigations made by the
police board. So one-sided and partial have these investi
gations grown recently, as shown in the alleged trial of
Sullivan before the board, that the public looks upon them
as a joke.
The real investigation of the police department will
come when the grand jury gets under way.

Taft still naps in the people's watch-tower. A man

note of dissatisfaction with things as they are. It is the
complacent message of a complacent president.
Doubtless the manner in which he deals with the tariff
will be generally approved, though even there he dodges
the vital issue as to whether rates should be radically
changed. He does take strong ground, however, in favor,
of a scientific method of future tariff revision. He urges
a permanent commission which shall proceed with a thor
ough knowledge of the facts, and rightly says legislation
should deal with individual schedules rather than with
general revision, if we would avoid a repetition of familiar
He is practically opposed to any further disturbance of
railroads and trusts, at least so far as new laws looking to
restriction and regulation are concerned. The progressive
sentiment which demands physical valuation of the rail-
