Rockefeller might reflect that, while

states have not invited him to come

Secretary Taft says: "The admin
istration of criminal law in all the
states in the union (there may be one
or two exceptions) is a disgrace to our
civilisation." Taft ought to know
he's a lawyer. The administration of
criminal law is just what the lawyers
have made it. Judge Taft. Why don't
you make an effort to reform your pro
fession? i Professor Clifton F. Hodge, biolo
gist at Clark university, urges the ex
termination of all cats by municipali
ties, delaHiig they are the worst ex

it bas become a matter of national
consequence, and adds: "We need

those that in one year killed liu.uuu

If the president now uudertake to

Gov. Hauly of Indiana has advanced
the suggestion that he should do his
duty, enforce the laws and do his ut
most to give the state of Indiana good
government. Not only has he made
such suggestions, but he has issued or

gambling and other law violations
which, in many stales, are encounter

also opposed the acceptance by offici
Like pirate craft of old, these big fin
ancial and commercial ships disguise
themselves as honest merchant-men
and take their victims- unawares.
The pilot of a pirate ship was always
an important figure, commanding a
large share of the loot. The legal pil
ots of the big trusts of today get $50,
000. $75,000. and sometimes $100,000 a
year. Piracy stiii pays the pirate well.
There is a common idea that the
lawyer who commands $50,000 or more
a year from a single trust client must
be an exceptionally great lawyer. This
is a delusion. The old pirate pilot was
no better than any other pilot. He dif
fered from the others only in being un
scrupulous enough to be a pirate. And
the trust lawyer of today who for a
high salary enables his client to cir
cumvent the laws is selling his honor,
not extraordinary abilities.
Measured against the legal incompe
tents and weaklings whom the public
commonly selects to enforce the laws,
the trust lawyers seem great. But
that is through fault of the public.
Setting up a $l,50o-a-year public pro
secutor against a $50.000-a-year lawyer
of a trust is like setting a row boat
to catch a piratical craft propelled by
steam and sail. It need not be a par

A feeling of distrust is steadily

Health is Worth Saving, and Some
Rock Island People Know How
to Save It.
Many Rock Island people take their
lives in their hands by neglecting the
kidneys when they know these organs
need help. Sick kidneys are responsi
ble for a vast amount of suffering and
ill-health, but there is no need to suffer
nor to remain in danger when all dis
eases and aches and pains due to weak
kidneys can be quickly and perma
nently cured by the use of Doan's Kid
ney Pills. Here is the statement of a
Rock Island citizen who has reclaimed
good health by the use of this remedy:

bricklayer and stone mason, says: "I
