Sarah Bernhardt made $200,000 out
of her rwnt farewell tour. There is
little doubt that she will come again.
President Roosevelt has a right to
run again if he can get a nomination,
and the voters have a right to rebuke
him for breaking his promises not to.
Even at this late day it should be re
membered, to the credit of De Lesseps
that he made some actual progress in
the work of digging the Panama canal.
Chicago Record-Herald: Wall street
is alleged to be planning to bring on a
panic to beat Roosevelt. There may
not be any truth in the report, but no
body believes that Wall street would be
likely, because of patriotic motives, to
scout such a plan.

the Russian peasant should feel that
the only solution of the difficulty lies
in the transference to himself of the
"title" to a generous share of that
land, so that, he may enjoy a greater
proportion of the products of his
Folk on the Duties of a Prosecutor.
Governor Folk, of Missouri, has read
the prosecuting attorneys of the coun
try an instructive lesson on their du
ties, in a recent reply he made to Dis
trict Attorney Jerome of New York,
who offered, as a reason for not en
forcing certain laws, the hackneyed
excuse that "it is monstrous that a
prosecuting officer should be an invest
igator." Governor Folk, among other
things, said in reply to Mr. Jerome:
"I say it is the duty of a prosecuting
attorney to investigate, and to investi
gate aggressively, every report of cor
ruption and drag into the sunlight of
publicity those crimes that in the na
ture of things are always done in
the dark and in secret. The entire
public is dependent upon the prosecu
tor, and unless the prosecutor investi
gates and digs out the evidence such
crimes can rarely be uncovered or prosecuted."
The Springfield Register earnestly
commends this reply of Governor Folk
to Mr. Jerome to the attention and hon
nest, thoughtful consideration of
Slate's Attorney Hatch of Sangamon
county and says, "There are corrup
tion and crime in Springfield that
should be 'dragged into the sunlight of
publicity." by Mr. Hatch, and the laws
be strictly enforced against the guilty
parties. Cannot State's Attorney
Hatch measure up to Governor Folk?"
Does the application that the Regis
ter suggests imply anything in the way
of a hint to Slate's Attorney Scott of
Rock Island county?

Land in Russia.
The condition of things in Russia
is assuming a phase that is alarming
the despotic government of the coun
try more than at any time since the
agitation of the people for relief from
their ills began. The reports that
reach the public from that country in
dicate that the government is at the
bottom of the various disturbances and
massacres which have taken place,
the purpose being to justify the as
sembling of large bodies of troops and
the overawing of the populace in order
to irevent revolutions.
The Russian people are ripe for rev
elation, but as yet no leaders of rec
ognized ability and magnitude have
come to the front. The people are
clamoring for relief, but the czar, con
trolled by aristocracy, has "offered
them only stones where they have
asked for bread."
One of the most imortant questions
involved in the controversy between
the czar and the people, and one that
is vital in its character, is the -Jand
question. Those who have carefully
sought out the causes of the social
and political unrest that has prevailed
in Russia for some time past, know
that the monopolization of land by
the crown, the church and the nobil
ity is responsible for the most irk
some of the evils the Russian people
The peasants realizing that they
need more land are demanding its ex
propriation to the end of having some
of it distributed among themselves,
. and thus relieve the existing) land
famine. . .
Strange indeed, one may remark,
that there should be such a state of
affairs in an empire whose extent is
so enormous as is that of the do
minions of the czar. But the fact re
mains that the Russian people find
them?elv7s oppressed because of their
having t-f ;sv tribute to the land, own-
; ing idlers, who neither toil nor spin,

George Crawford left the high school
of his native village to go to college
with a view to becoming a lawyer.
How he was to pay his way no one
knew, for be had not a cent in the
world. Moreover, there was a love
match between him and his school
mate, Maggie Pixley, the beginning of
which neither could remember. The
affair first began to look serious when
George went to college. At least. It
was theu that Maggie's father first
tojk notice of It and showed his oppo
sition. He reminded his daughter that
she was at a marriageable age, while
her lover had four years at college,
three at law school and no one could
tell bow many more in getting a prac
tice at his profession. But all this de
pended on his getting the money to
pay bis expenses. Maggie made up her
mind to wait for George Crawford.
George at his entrance to college won
a scholarship that by dint , of rigid
economy helped him through his first
year. After that he did odd jobs,
taught, won prizes, thus scraping to
gether enough to put him through col
lege. When it came to studying law,
be found a position in n school requir
ing but a few hours of each day. This
gave him what he needed to complete
his legal education.
George was advised by most of his
professors to plant himself in a large
city, but one of them, differing from
the rest, recommended the country,
where, if the field was smaller, the
competition was less. George chose the
country and settled in his native vil
lage. When one finds himself on the wrong
side of a question the more the case
goes against him the closer he is tempt
ed to cling to it. Maggie's father was
the notary of the village, and, having
once studied a little law in a country
office, now found bis daughter's suitor,
whom he had opposed, looking down on
him from a comparatively high legal
pinnacle. His opposition to the match
was more obstinate than it had been
seven years before.
Judge Pixley, as he bad come to be
called by his fellow citizens who knew
his weakness In respect to legal lore,
was the recipient of many small trusts
One day four men came together to
his office and after asking If he were
Judge Pixley. laying stress on the
"judge." asked him to take charge of
some $12,000 till they should call for
it again, offering him a large fee. The
notary, without stopping to Inquire
whence the men came, accepted the
trust and at their request drew up
receipt, ending with an agreement to
pay over the money when called for
to each and every one of those who
had left it with him and to none of
Lhein separately. This done, they de
In a few minutes the sjiokesman of
the party, who had flattered the no
tary, returned and said that be wished
to count the money. Pixley put him
at a table with the bills and during the
counting was called for a moment Into
another room. When he returned both
the man and the money had vauislled.
This was the severest blow the no
tary had ever received. The only prop
erty be possessed was his dwelling.
and he had been years paying off a
mortgage upon it. To replace the lost
money would require the sacrifice of
the house and something besides. The
old man was in an ngoiy. He spent
what ready money be had going to the
city and consulting lawyers, all of
whom told him that the theft of one of
the depositors did not absolve his in
debtedness to the others.
He was not kept' long In suspense.
In a few days the men, excepting the
thief, returned and claimed their prop
erty. Not receiving It. they entered
suit against Pixley, and as there whs
hut little business before the court the
case was soon called for trial. Thpre
was no lawyer in the place except
George Crawford, and Pixley had no
money with which to pay a lawyer.
Maggie begged George to do something
for her father, and the old man was
obliged to intrust his case to the per
son he so bitterly opposed.
On the day of the trial excellent
counsel appeared on behalf of the
claimants, who made speeches setting
forth "the villainy of the rascal who
had sought to defraud these honest
men of their dues." Crawford sat
without a protest to these charges, the
gaping villagers setting him down for
a very poor lawyer for not hurling
them back in the attorneys teeth. The
Judge and Jury were not averse to Tix
ley, but tbey did not see bow they
could obey the law and not find a ver
dict for the plaintiff.
When the case against the defendant
had been Rtated and George arose it
was hoped that at last be would mae
a fiery speech accusing the claimants
of collusion besides other crimes and
set forth the high standing the defend
ant had held in the community. In
stead he called for a reading of the re
ceipt. When the reader came to the
words "shall pay to the said (the names
here followed) together and not sepa
rately" George called a halt and said:"
"Tour honor, I ask for a dismissal
of the case against my client on the
ground that the instrument expressly
forbids my client to pay It except to
the four men together."
"Cane dismissed," said the judge.
At the same moment detectives ad
vanced and arrested the claimants on
a charge of murder and robbery.
George Crawford suspected one or
both these crimes and had notified the
police of a neighboring city, who had
ferreted out a double crime.
The case was the beginning of George
Crawford's success at the bar and aft
erward in public life. He married
Maggie Pixley. with her father's ap
probation. WILI.ARD K. ITFER.
