THE PUBLIC DEFENDER
The creation in Los Angeles last
3jrlng of the office of Public Defend
er suddenly awakened the various
cities to the fact that a very rieces
sary official of the judiciary. system
had been discovered.
The idea of paying a man to prose
cute ostensible offenders of the law
and then paying another to defend
them Boomed, at first glance, like pul
ling in two different wuys, but a short

demonstrated its worth, with the re

Thc Washington Time? takes to
task a "certain metropolitan news
paper" ior opposing the "cotton fill
buster' In Congress during the last
few davs of the late session, on the
?round that the same paper strongly
approved another recent filibuster, de
signed to prevent the passage of the
river? and harbors appropriation bill.
In the course of its remarks The
limes declares that a filibuster (8 not,
if Itself, an Improper proceeding, but
is frequently a very effective and an
eminently proper weapon by which
a minority can have Its way. It states
hat the Identity of the ox that is be
ing gored plays an important part In
leterminlng the attitude of any news
paper toward a particular filibuster.
The proceeding known as a fllibust
2r is of ancient and frequent use. Its
impropriety ls rarely assailed in Con
gress, because no member knows Just
when he may find it to his purpose to
make use of il, and he does not care
io he inconsistent without benefit. For
this and other reasons, there is no
particular outcry against the filibus
But lt does not seem entirely accu
rate to describe lt as a weapon of the
minority. More frequently lt ls an ob
structive effort of one or two indivi
duals, disgruntled or cranky, and lt
enables them to hold up the business

hose few individ?ala shall be done
OT until they shall be worn out. It it
loubtful if the filibuster is a proper
proceeding. Congress necessarily
works by majorities, and while it ls

In the literature of the people of
the New South one of the distinctly
cherished classics is Henry W.
Grady's famous prose poem on cotton.
It was written in IShL'-jiist as the
South was coming Into a new indus
trial g' ry through Its cotton mills
and ls treasured In every scrapbo^K
?otu h of the Potomac-. Among the ad
mirers of tho editor-orator lt is rank

"But a few months ago they told
us Cotton was King and that before
als throne the crowned monarchs of
.lie world would crouch and sue for
favor. But now before a frost baa
withered a single leaf in Iiis coronet
he comes Into the hall a shivering
pauper crying, 'Givo mo drink or I
perish ! "
But Grady was thc apostle of de
velopment optimist of the new indus
trial South, and he embalmed the
?reat Southern staple in tills proso
.(e-in which is now a definite part of
us fame. It is of peculiar national
uterest and application in the pres
