The republican spill binders are
making no votes for their own ticket
or presenting arguments of a font ful
IiHUtre in the attacks (hoy are making
c-ither upon the citizens' movement or
the character of James McNatrara. tile
nominee for mayor. It is plea.-iiii; !;
know from Henry C. SchafferV, own
pen that lie does not approve of these
practices. One would imagine, to h".ir
t-otne of these stump orators talk tha'
it was a besetting sin to vote uiiyi hiii-;
but the republican licket, no mallei
how far into the depths of depredation
its campaign management mi-lit seek
to k in I he matter of ilit ical ulliaiices.
The citizens' tnovtnteiit, it is but just
to stale, hail its origin tiefore ihe
republican primaries or convention
were held, and hence those identified
Willi it cannot he truthfully called
"soreheads." It is the development or
a spirit that has been in the air in
Ilock Island for two years, at least.
Whether it succeeds or not it is en
titled to respect as representin:; the in
alienable right of American citizenship.
Destroy or even decry that privilege,
and where will your American in.stii i
tions go? The republican party is not
greater than sood government in th.
nation and it surtly is not greater than
good government in Rock Island.
Tho attacks upon James McXama.'a
personally, are as unseemly and unjust
as the spirit that prescribes all that is
not republican in principle. Mr. Mc
Xaniara is a man. against whose char
acter no charge can be truthfully
lodged. He is an extensive property
owner, who does much for the upbuil.i-
ing of attraciive homes and is withal
a thoroughly it preventative man, ln
would make a model mayor.
The assaults emanating from nano.v
nes.s of spirit are senseless and do :io
harm to those assailed.

A SOCIOLOGICAL EXPERIMENT.
'What do you think of the evidence
in the Dodge ease?" aski'il Professor
ISiirnicout of Professor Nourse. Tlio
lirst occupied the chair of chemistry
and the latter of sociology at the Uni
versity of B.
"Haven't read it," replied Nourse.
"I t.ike no interest In present methods
of haudiin.g the criminal problem."
"What Uo you mean?"
"Why are people criminals? There
are three distinct causes llrst, heredi
ty; second, environment; third, neces
sity. Under these tlm-e heads you may
manufacture criminals ad libitum."
"Oh, that's newfangled bosh nnd i3
loading up to a lot of sentimental op
position to the punishment of crime."
"You haven't studied the matter as
thoroughly as I have. You art? inter
ested in clvinlcal problems, while my
duties have led mo to investigate
those in criminology. 1 find that un
der certain conditions people become
criminals in far greater proportion
than under other conditions. For In
stance, a large percentage of the 4'hil
dren of foreign born parents become
jailbirds. Now, if you saw n corre
sponding result in the chemical world
you would look for a cause."
"Hats. Donald! Good Is good nnd
bail is bad; always has been and al
ways will be."
After much more of this dialogue
Professor Itarnicoat left unconverted.
He was sitting up late one night tit
home reading when then; was a ring
at the telephone, and he received a
message from Professor Nourse.
"Come over as quickly as you can.
I've caught a fine specimen of th.
genus criminal, and we'll experiment
Hariiieoat lost no time in joining liU
friend and. going tip into his bedroom,
saw him 40ver'mg a burglar with a re
volver. The burglar was sitting iu a
chair waiting to be turned over to the
"Is he a heredity case?'' asked Dami
coat. "We shall see. Sit down."
Nourse made an examination of his
prisoner, with the result that he came
under the third head the professor had
laid down. He had been straimil be
yond endurance, lie had a wife at
home with a sick baby, lie was out
of work. There was no doctor for the
baby, no medicine and no food for any
of the family. The husband and fa
ther had gone out to steal something
to provide for his wife and child. See
ing a window open on Nourse's piazza,
he stepped in and groped his way up
stairs to Nourse's bedroom. Nourse,
bearing him in his room, reached down
under the bed where he kept a revolv
er, turned on the electric lights and
covered the thief.
The two friends conferred together
in an undertone.
"I claim." said Nourse, "that this
follow lias the godlike clement in hiin
that would lead him to give his life for
"I don't believe it," whispered
"We'll try him." With that he turn
ed to the man. who sat the picture of
miserv. "Have you anvthing to ay
why I should not call the police?"'
"Oh, G.iil, what will she and the child
"Would you bo willing to secure re
lief for them by sacrificing yourself?"
"If you will relieve them I'll go to
"The alternative must be worse for
you than that. Your family is inno
cent. You are not. You must Ik? pun

of you for the rest of your life as it
will certainly have to do now that you
have started on a criminal career by
punishing yourself I and my friend
will sign a paper obligating ourselves
to provide for your family for ten
"How do you want me to punish my
self?" "P.y blowing out your brains."
"You don't mean that. That's not
tho punishment for burglar'."
"It is my alternative."
Nourse spoke with icy coldness, and
the man turned pale. He was given
time to consider, while Nourse pointed
out the advantages of the course h'
proposed, tho gist of which was that
his family would be taken care of and
he would be saved from a life that
would be far worse than death. Final
ly he said, hoarsely and faintly:
"I accept. They will lie saved."
Nourse at once placed ISarnicoat on
guard and, going into another room, re
turned with the agreement he had pro
posed in writing, and ho and Harnieoat
signed it. lie had also it pistol in his
baud. Turning the burglar with his
face to the wall, he handed hi in the pis
tol and told him to perform his part
of the contract. There was some ml"
about the parties of the other part not
being bound tocarry out their agree
ment, but the burglar finally waived all
this, ilie menus waitoii sneuuy lor
him to put a ball In his brain while
the clock ticked away ten minutes.
Then there was tin explosion. Th?
burglar tottered nnd fell in a heap on
"Get up, man; you are not hurt. You
fired a blank cartridge."
They raisl him, and he looked at
them dazed, slowly gathering his
"Go home. Take this," banding him
a bill. "I'll send a doctor. We'll start
you on an honest career."
When the two friends parted. 15arul-
cuat admitted that the professor of
sociology had performed a very satis
factory experiment and had proved that
under certain conditloiis oue may com
mit a crime and ilie n morally heroi
death at the same time.
