OU3 SPEECH BEFORE LA
SAYS ROOSEVELT IS RIGHT
Uphold Ex-Preeidcnt's Denunciation
cf Judicial Bodies Asserts Judges
Render Elrsed Declolons Through
Environments In Which They Live.
St. Louis. In an addrers on Tues
day before tho American Federation
of Labor convention, which Is In ses
sion in this city, Gvcmor Hadley of
Missouri ctror.gly upheld Theodore
Koo:-'evt lt'o denunciation of tlio courts.
He said tliat Roosevelt was right.
"I believe and every hone3t man be
lieves," said he, "that there should bo
jiFt eriticii.m of any public ofllcial,
whether Judge or any other ofllcial."
This sentiment aroused the greatest
enthusiasm ia tho convention. "Roose
velt was ris;:t when he denounced the
courts, ber raise they are governed by
iuclr environment. The great trouble
with the jU'l'.'8. they live within their
own environment, and their decision
:irc made accordingly," said Governor
Itadiey. "It might bo a narrow en
vironment; it plight be a largo en
vironment, and us lawyers know why
they make, a decision.
"1 believe In an emp'oyera liability
law that doc3 not take into considera
tion the fellow servant or the as
sumption of risk. I am prepared to
appoint a commission of labor, law
yers ord citizens to draw up a com
pensation art and I will do all I can
to have the legislature pass It. That
will mean not a proposition Involving
delay, but something which will
hasten relief for those who suffer In
Jury. ' I do not see why the Judiciary
should not have the correctness of
their reasoning subjected to criticism.
"Legislature and court made law
both are only the expression of the
people of the time and a decision
which may be Just at one time may
be quite impossible at a later date."
Governor Hadley then referred to
his fight with t-e Standard Oil com
pany "When I attacked the Standard
OH company four years ago it was
protected by a rule of law that it
could not be required to produce
books and papers that might result in
the conviction and fining of the com
pany and that a corporation hat the
name rights as an individual."

"Your honor Is probably familiar
with this case," he said. "This defend
ant, his father. Col. Duncan B. Cooper,
and John Sharp were indicted Jointly
for the murder of Senator Carmack.
The case came up for trial and re
sulted in the acquittal of Sharp. Colo
nel Cooper and this defendant were
found guilty of murder In the first de
gree. The supreme court affirmed the

of the attorney general, the sworn
officer of tho state, and in view of the
further fact that there is no further
effort made to prosecute tho case, the

guilty, which was accordingly done.

WEIGHT OF A SOUL
ALLEGED DEMONSTRATION IS
RIDICULED BY WRITER.
Experiments of Dr. Macdougatl of
America In Weighing Dying Fer
sons Declared Inconclusive and
Not to Be Taken 8erlously. '
"There Is a popular notion that tun
weight of tha living body Is less than
that of the dead one," says a writer In
the Lancet. "In a recent Issue of thi
Pioneer Mail a correspondent dter.jrs
es this question in connection with
tho behavior of a crocodile which ho
shot dead while It was basking nrlcop
on a qulck.4r.nd.
"When shot the crocodiio bepnn to
sink and almost disappeared before
It could be reached. The correspond
ent Is cleurly inclined to accept thu
popular colon of an Increase in weight
at death but for tho fact that recent
experiments undertaken by torno
learned authorities in America havo
proved that a dead bod;- was lighter
than a living one. From thin they
(th learned authorities) deduce that

inipiaterlal and imponderable.
"In the first of a series ol" six ex- ;
perlmeiitti. Dr. MacdouKall cied a
man dylnc from pulmonary tuberculo
sis on the scales. Tho patient lost
weight at tho rate of one-sixteenth cl
an ounce per minute until tho moment
of death, when the beam end dro
ped with an audible stroke, showing
a sudden decrease of three-quarto's
of an ounce In weight. Wfc-,t was
the cause of tho sudden decrease? Dr.
Macdougall, after excluding the loss
due to escape of breath and fluid con- ;
tents of the body by evaporation or .
other natura'. means, concluded that
the marked and sudden decrease was
duo to escape of the 'soul substance.'
In this' particular Instance tile soul
was evidently a very material ono,
weighing three-quarters of an ouncu.
' "rrl Tomi-vtar extended his ob
servations to dogs. Ua tie K'amu
gained were mgutive. At the moment
of death, 'the' dog's body refused to
show any alteration In weight. We are
of the opinion that the correspondent ,
of the Pioneer Mail in seeking to
explain the disappearance of tho idiot
crocodile In the quicksand neci not.
take his 'learned authorities' too se-'
rlously. Dr. Mactlougall's " observa
tions are to be explained by a peculiar
bias on the part of bin scales or on
tho part of his friendw, who asslatuil
him. At least, tho scales lised by
other Investigators havo refused to
reveal any sudden diminution in the
weight of the body at death.' t
lu the actual acceptation of the term
death occurs when respiration and cir
culation have ceased, but In a more
strict sense the death of the body Is
gradual, the muscular system, for In
stance being really alive some hours
after the apparent death of the indi
vidual." Tired Watches.
Chrifcllan H. Stroh, a St. Loula Jow-'
eler, In speaking of watches, said:
"I suppose you don't know that,
watches, like human beings, ' some
times don't go for the very reason
they are tired out. and need resting.
Sometimes a watch Is brought to mo
which is all right. Nothing about' it
is out of order, und It is fairly cl.'an..
When they become sulky and rofuso
to run, except by fits and starts, thu
best thing to do is to lay them aside
for a good rest. . (
"The mechanism of a tired watch
seems to be In perfect condition, but it
Just won't work. Tho fact is that
long and faithful service baa thrown It
slightly out of adjustment lu perhaps
a doren places. Scraping and clean
lug and readjusting a fine watch In
the worst thing that could be done
to it. A month's rest will cause tho
works slowly to readjust tnemselveu,
and at the end of that time, after care
ful oiling, the watch will go as cheer,
fully as ever." 1
