Some Crank Legislation.
A New Jersey legislator Introduc
ed a bill in the general assembly of
that state providing that 'the wear
ing of what has become popularly
known as the "harem skirt" by a
woman should be made a high mis
demeanor and punished by impris
onment for life. He was roundly
hissed by the women in the gallery
as be deserved to be, not because
he was not entitled to his own opin
ion concerning the wearing apparel
designated in the bill, but because
the introduction of that bill was an
Insult to the womanhood of the coun
try. From the time of the "bloomer"
of a generation or more ago and for
many years before a certain kind of
men hare taken it upon themselves
to attempt to regulate the wearing
aoparel of women, foreettin that i
extravagant exhibitions of folly j
have been made in this direction j
quite as often by the men as by
women. It is true that some ridic
ulous or outre style of dress fre
quently obtains a style of vogue, but
good sense and the demands of the
times usually settle, as a rule, the kind
of clothes that the people are to wear.
For instance, how would the wealthy
man of business of today look rigged
out in the finery that his ancesters
used to flaunt around in?
The women of the present day are,
as a rule, eminently sensible in adapt-
Ing their clothing to the exigencies of
business and social life, and further
more, as a role, the intelligent women
of this time are abundantly able and
willing to attend to their own business
and let the men attend to theirs. The
days when, as was done in Puritan Eng
land, the law prescribed just how long
a man should wear his hair or what
kind of a frock a woman should wear
in public, has happily passed.
Public opinion and private necessity
are the best arbiters as to what people
should eat and drink and wherewithal
they should be clothed. The harem
skirt may be an abomination, but if it
is it will go the way of other foolish
fashions without any aid from law
makers who ought to be in better busi
ness because there is plenty of better
business for them to attend to.
Let the People Be the Judges.
If some of the people who have
been writing communications to The
Argus demanding that it engage in
a campaign of denunciation of May
or McCaskrin, will turn out and vote
tomorrow and vote for Schriver they
will serve the purpose they seek to
attain much better than could be
accomplished by the method they
suggest. The Argus is speaking only
for itself. Its position is well known,
but it may be well to recall that
some years ago when The Argus as
a result of having taken exception
to the way Mayor McCaskrin con-1
ducted the affairs of the city under !
his first administration, got into a con-
troversy with him that developed un- j Theodore, Jr., at End.

that he may have accomplished.

- Doubtless one reason for the tremen
dous growth of municipal expenditure
and municipal indebtedness in the
United States arises from the almost
total lack of accurate knowledge of the
detail of the cost. The taxpayers are
at fixed times furnished with a state
ment of aggregates of revenue and of
items of expenditure; but there is no
advertised census of officials, retain
ers, subordinates, sinecurists and pen
sioners. The money goes as fast as it
can be gathered in or borrowed, but
where and whither? No man can tell.
It is this absence of proper statistical
knowledge that leads to a defeat of
popular government and the Introduc
tion of commission government. The
greater cities in the United States col
lect and disburse for public purposes
more money than the states in which
they are located. They also have a
greater number of paid officials; but
only the political managers could give t
forth an accurate roll call. The great- j
er the popular Ignorance the greater j
the opportunity of graft. 1
The chief object of the commission !
form of government is to so concen-'
trate the control of public affairs, and j
to so systematize the conduct of muni- i
cinal bnsinosa that ha nuhi man v. i

Popular Ignorance thus done
away with, the opportunities for graft !
are minimized if not eliminatPd pro- j

FIRE DAMAGE IS S15,000j
Preemption's Destructive Blaze Has
Origin in Coal Shed.
Preemption, April S. Fire of .un
known origin started in a coal shed in
the rear of Dr. J. H. Seyler's drug store
and on account of no fire protection
caused a blaze which did more than
$15,000 damages, totally destroying a
fine two-stcry brick store building and
a two-story frame implement ware
house and a blacksmith shop. The
store block was occupied on the first
floor by Seyler's drug store and the sec
ond floor was headquarters for the Ma
sens. The entire store with Its con
tents was destroyed. The building
was worth $4,000 and the stock $6,000.
The Implement warehouse belonging
to William Steinhauer, containing
000 stock, was also totally destroyed,
and carried only $1,500 insurance. The
blacksmith shop belonging to Robert
(Blakely was destroyed. For a time the
while town was threatened, but through
the activity of the bucket brigade close
by homes were saved and spreading of
the flames checked.

The Argus Daily Short Story
A Singular Case
Copyrighted, 1911, "by
One evening In the early part of the
last century a man alighted from the
daily mall coach before the Royal
Arms, in London derry, Ireland. The
porter took down a large trunk, or,
rather, ironbound box such as was
frequently used by travelers in those
days, and carried it into the inn.
The man was dressed in the costume
of the period a beaver hat, the crown
sloping toward the top; a "splketail"
green coat, with snuff colored knee
breeches,' ruffled shirt and shoes with
silver buckles. His face was cleanly
The stranger entered his name as Al
gernon Perkins and was assigned to
room No. 26, on the second floor.
Drawing outhis wallet, he counted out
100 sovereigns i$."00) and deposited
them with the landlord for safe keep
ing. He then went to his room, order
ing his supper to be sent up to him.
About 10 o'clock the saiae night a
man with a fiery red beard, a beaver
bell crown hat, a buff coat with flow- j
in skirt nrd irnnssprs- recent lv in
fashion, tight to the skin and strapped
v,.- . . ,
gave his name as David Brough and
called for a room.
"I should like my old rooms, he
said, "Nos. 25 and 2(5."
The landlord failed to remember the
man, but, not caring to admit the fact,
told him that No. 26 was occupied,
but 25 was vacant. With an expres
sion of dissatisfaction at not getting
both rooms he accepted the substitute.
Then he went upstairs.
Later Mr. Brough in his nightshirt
opened his door, called a porter who
was passing through the hall, slipped
a half sovereign into his hand and
said to him:
"I'm to go off in the Royal mail ear
ly in the morning and wish my trunk
to be ready to lift on to the coach. '
Carry it down and leave it in the hall !
below, near the front door." !
The porter pocketed the tip, car-1
rled the trunk downstairs and placed f
it beside the front door. The landlord, j
who was nodding behind the bar, j
roused himself and asked what he was i
doing. The porter told him that a !
gentleman who was going early in the
morning had ordered him to place the !
trunk where it would be ready. The '
landlord soon after took op a candle
and went to his rooms.
At 5 o'clock in the morning a milk
man, stopping at the Royal Arms to
deliver milk, saw a man with a red
beard emerge from the front door of
the Inn carrying a heavy trunk under
the weight of which he staggered and
pass down the street. The milkman
delivered the inn's morning supply of
milk and drove away, thinking no
more of the matter.
At 10 o clock the same morning a
hsnsemaid reported to the landlord
that the gentleman In 26 had not left
bis room; that she had listened at the
door without hearing any sound, and
8 he believed the room was vacant. The
landlord went to the room with her,
knocked and, receiving no reply, kick
ed open the door.
The room was found vacant and in
confusion. It communicated with No.

rtfpiy, he opened" the door, went Into
the room and found that the bed had
not been slept in. Bloodstains were
found on the towels.
Subsequently the porter told how he
had been paid a large fee by the oc
cupant of No. 25 to carry down his
trunk, and the landlord remembered
that No. 25 had no luggage. Then
came the milkman and told of having
seen a man in a buff suit carrying a
trunk out of the inn early in the morn
ing. Lastly the landlord remembered
that he had a hundred sovereigns of
Mr. Perkins' money in his strongbox.
The case excited a great deal of at
tention in the country roundabout.
Peculiar cireunistauces connected with
it contributed to fire the public curi
osity. Did Mr. Brough go to the ho
tel purposely to mirrder Mr. Perkins?
Who was Perkins, and who was
Brough? Did Brough get a sufficient
amount to pay him for killing a man
and forever after being hunted by the
police and haunted by his conscience?
The favorite theory was that Brough
knew that Perkins had a hundred sov
ereigns on his person; that he had fol-
lowed him to the inn. taken a room
communicating with Perkins room,
entered the latter during the night,
murdered Perkins, packed the body
in Perkins trunk and carried it away
fhe next morning. But Broueh wjis
probably unaware that Perkins had
deposited the money with the land
lord and probably after all missed
what he was after.
Since no one knew where Mr.
Brough had gone and there were no
trained detectives In those days tber
was nothing to do but wait for In
formation to come of Itself. It was
learned in a few days that a gentle
man carrying his own trunk outside
the city had stopped the coach going
northward and be:n taken on. The
man wore a buff suit and had a red
beard. He was believed to be Brough.
but after tracin;; him through several
towns the trail was lost.
If there was anything wanting in
the matter of circumstantial proof that
Perkins had been murdered it was
supplied by the fact that his hundred
sovereigns remained with the land
lord. He neither called for It nor did
any one present an order for it. And
yet there were persons who believed
that if he had been murdered his fam
ily would make the fact known that
he was missing. No person in the
country roundalrat nor indeed in
Ireland was reported missing, but
communication in those days was
very slow, and news traveled neither
fast nor far. Since no further knowl
edge was gained as to the identity of
either Brough or Perkins, after awhile
Interest in the case died down, and it
was.at last forgotten.
About the time this curious case
was the talk in and around London
derry, Ireland, a mysterious robbery
occurred in London, England. Edith,
daughter of Edward Trelawney, was
about to be married, and her father
had drawn from hi.s bankers 3.000 for
her dowry that he mieht have it ready
for the settlements which were to Tr-e
made the next day. Not having a safe

He expected to And that some one
of his servants had disappeared during
the night, but on going downstairs he
found the butler setting the table for
breakfast, the housemaid dusting In
the library nn.l the cook ia the kitchen.
These were the only servants kept,
and there was no one else in the house
who could have taken the money. The
matter was rerorted to the police, but
in those days the machinery for hunt
ing up criminals which exists today
was unknown, and all hope of recov
ery of the treasure was abandoned
within a few hours after it was lost.
Mariir.ges ia Er.sland were in that
day depeadeut u;"on the settlements.
The groom in this case, Thomas Nolan,
had studied medicine and required cap
ital to set him up in his profession,

Not li.iv- ;;ft
tii'.s rupture between i
two lovers Anthony Barton, who had
for a long while been madly iu love
with Miss Trelawney, renewed or at
tempted to renew his attentions to her.
But she would have nothing to do with
him. He was a persistent fellow, and
it was difficult for her to get rid of !
him. In order to help his case he told
her father that he had inherited S,000
from an uncle who had died in Amer
ica. But even this failed, for, while
the daughter did not love Barton, her
father had a very poor opinion of him.
Indeed, there was a secret understand
ing between Nolan and Misis Trelawney
that neither would marry until ha
should have achieved success or had
inherited his portion of his father's es
tate. Two years passed, during which
young Dr. Nolan, whose father would
do nothing for him pecuniarily, made
little progress in his profession, and
marriage with a portionless girl was
out of the question. One day when
Miss Trelawney returned from shop
ping she found in her room a bag con
taining the lost dowry, with the ex
ception of a hundred pounds. In the
bag was a paper signed by Anthony
Barton. It was a confession and read
"When you receive this I shall be
where no one will find me. They say
love Is ennobling. It has made me the
most despicable of men. I am going
to confess what I have done. I have
made two mysteries. I will explain
them both, but I have had a confed
erate. I did not 6teal your dowry, but
I employed another to do it for me.
I did not want your money, but I
wanted to break off your match with
Nolan, hoping that by doing so I could
in time persuade you to be my wife.
The man who stole the dowry took
away with him as much more money.
He and the money were sure to be
missed and be would be hunted. I am
not going to betray him. How he got
your dowry, how it is returned to you,
must remain a mystery. The other
mystery I will explain, for you will
need it to recover a hundred pounds
belonging to you.
"My confederate determined to dis
appear from the face of the earth. Not
long after his departure he put up at
a hotel in Ireland, having with him a
trunk in which there was little besides
a change of apparel and a red beard.
He left 100 with the landlord and
went to his room. Dressing himself as
another person and putting on the
beard, he got out of a window, dropped
on a shed and, going to the front door,
entered as a guest, securing the room
next to and communicating with his
own. Then he sent his trunk down
stairs, cut his finder purposely, wiping
the blood on the towels, and In the
morning, as the newcomer, went down
and carried the trunk away.
"All this was done to leave the Im
pression that the first guest had been
murdered by the second and carried
away in the trunk. The deposit he
made was but a small portion of his
plunder and was intended to prove that
he had not left the inn alive. His
ruse was successful. Some months
after he put it in practice those who
had lost money by him tracked him
to the Irish inn and learned, as they
believed, that he had been murdered
there. The landlord, however, refused
to pay the money the murdered man
had left, without proper proofs. I think
you can get it by presenting this con
fession, which Is duly executed."
The money was recovered, but before
that Dr. Nolan and Miss Trelawney
had been married. As for Barton, he
was never again heard from.
