WORLD'S INCOMPARABLE ACROBATS

Wo note by the dailies an or
der recently Issued by the Post
master (leneral, in which it is
intimated that it is not incum
bent upon office holders to contri
bute to campaign funds inertly
because they happen to hold of
fice. We have" a high regard for
the Postmaster General and are
convinced that every move he
makes has for its object the bet
terment of the postal service,
but it occurs to us there is such
a thing as carrying these reforms
too far. Of course an officer
shouldn't be browbeaten and co
erced into contributing to the
campaign fund of his party, but
if the office holders are U be ex
empt we should like to know who
is to contribute the legitimate
necessary funds for carrying on
a campaign. It is certainly bet
ter that the appointees should
contribute to thecompaign funds
than that the railways and trusts
magnates should be asked to fur
nish the sinews of war for a par
An official holding office at the
hand of one or the other of the
great political parties should be
willing and anxious to contribute
to the success of that party by
his means as well as by his vote,
the same as every good citizen
should be willing to contribute
to the support of his city, Mate
or nation. He evidently believes
the party of his choice is right
or he would not be serving it in
an official capac ity, and if he be
lieves it is right and deserving
success he ought to contribute
as liberally of his means to its
aupport as lus income will war
rant, and the higher the salary
he draws, the more liberally he
ought to contribute. An official
is not less competent or efficient
lecHUse of his willingness to as
sist his party, and there ought to
be no official orders rendering it
possible for him to evade the per
formance of a duty by hiding be
hind the civil service laws, or an
order such as the recent order of
the Postmaster General. Mo

Womt of It.
Friday night List witnessed
what threatened for a time to be
a serious manifestation of the
mob spirit again. One of the
boys, who was out for a good
time got a little boistrous and
was admonished by McManus,
which seemed only to incense
Mr. Good Timer, and the police
man, in the discharge of his du
ties attempted to arrest the
young man. This seemed to be
a signal for others to join in a
scrimmage with the law officer
who stood up to his work with
the pluck that becomes an officer
intent upon what he believes to
be his duty, and with the help of
others succeeded in landing two
of the gentlemen in the cooler.
In the meelee- Ed Lederer got
some raps over the head that had
to to be stitched. This was done
by Mayor Lancaster.
The arrested parties will be
tried before Judge Wright June
6. Warrants are out for others
who took part in this battle, and
no doubt they will all find it a
little expensive to try fun with
an officer of the law. We have
heard quite a number of expres
sions of opinion in the matter
and the general expression has
been against the mob and in fa
vor of the officers. Order must
be maintained at all hazard. The
only king in this conntry is the
law. To this the officers are sub
ject as well as the peple, nd
the people themselves made the
law and should be the first to ob
serve it and then require every
body else to obey it.
itelattve to Kaloon Huttnrss In
In 1M there were l.')t iiuv.r-
israted towns in Indiana that
did not have a saloon within their
bounds and two entire counties, i
Drown and Pike, contained no
saloons, according to figures
compiled by Joseph H. Stubbs,
chief of the bureau of statistics.
On the other hand, the figures
show that none of the cities in
the state is without a saloon, the
smallest number in any city be
ing four, in Hensalaer, Union
City, and Hising Sun.
According to the figures there
were T, 110 saloons in the state
in an increase of 273 over
the proceeding year. Of this
nuinlH-r, were in the cities
and 1,447 in the towns and the
townships outside of incorporat

cities in the state, three show an

Lawyers and Leaaer Mm.
To most persons a lawyer is a
most fearsome creature. In
the popular mind he has all the
attributes to take the leading
role in the celebrated epic drama
"Paradise Lost," except horns
and taiL To Ixim it is but child's
play to involve the truth in Kiich
a labyrinthian maze of circumlo
cutory phrases that no ordinary
mortal can find the clue. Hi
exquisite skill in making black
ljok white and vice versa, and in J
giving a group of facts the exact
shade of color necessary to com-,
plete the mise en scene of the
c ase, would make him rich and
famous as a landscape painter.
At the same time his constitu
tional modesty in regard to a
naked truth never binds him to a
true perception of article) 1 in the
ethics of his profession, which
binds him to take all of aa estate
in part payment of his fe for re
covering the. same.
Only a lawyer knows however,
what a superior person a lavryer
usually is, or how low he can
sometimes sink in the scale of
creation. This double-barreled
fact was emphasized by a h right
young lawyer f rom the Oairks in
his address on "Lawyers" at the
meeting of the Missouri fc?ui
Har Association in Kn? as City
the other day. Speakinj; of the
law recently pcussod by the Mis
souri legislature, raising the
standard for admission to the
bar, he said in a burt of right
eous indignation: Why, r.
Chairman, hundred of lawyers
are admitted to th bar hoai
