For Labor.— He Has Ever Been On the Firing Line In the Interest of' Humanity. Twelve years ago, when Eugene V. Debs was imprisoned as a result of his activities in the great railway* strike in Chicago, Clarence Darrow became his legal champidn. Three years later he defended Thomas I. Kidd and two striking woodworkers who were charged with having "con spired," through their union, "to in jure the business" of a great lumber company in O&hkosh, Wis. His argu ments, which has been printed in phamphlet form and is pronounced by no less a critic than William Dean Howells "as interesting as a novel" resulted in the acquittal of his clients. A more distinctive figure than Dar row's, says Kellogg Durland, in the Boston Transcript, has seldom come out of the west: He was born in the Western Re serve of Ohio. His father was an hon est man. After qualifying for the church he gave up the cloth for a country store that he might 'feel surer of what he was doing.' At 19 young Darrow was teaching school. One year of college life satisfied him. Early in his twenties he drifted to Chicago and studied law. All his life he has been a dreamer and happy in his dreams. He has the strength of a man of vision. As a lawyer he has wide reputation, for he has been the corporation counsel for a great rail road and the defender of men like Eugene V. Debs and Kidd in the fa mous woodworkers' conspiracy case. Public life has always called him. but he has mostly been deaf to the call, 'I want to make my living as a lawyer and devote my leisure to writing sto ries and essays,' he has pleaded al most peevishly. 'And I want to write a long novel.' His life is best ..under stood in his philosophy^ The ideas he gives utterance to today are rooted in years of his boyhood when his plaint mind was brought in contact with scenes surrounding an underground railroad station. His flesh and blood heroes were Garrison, Kelley, Foster, Pillsbury and other devoted abolition ists who inspired him with ideals of liberty and fired him with bitter hat red toward every form of oppression. The black man's fetters have been loosed, but he believes there are wprk ingmen in this country who are shackled as truly as were ever the negroes. Darrow offers his life to these, if he sometimes speaks life a hater of the rich it is only because of his burning zeal to speak at all. He calls himself a Tolstoyan. 'Tol st6y,' he says, 'is the first author whb has put the doctrine of non-resistance on a substantial basis.' Tolstoy !s the one man to whom Darrow has eVer pledged himself. To be sure, it is Rarrowesque Tolstoyanism, but it works out an interesting code and Darrow fpllows it with amazing con sistency. He has ever steadfastly re frained from committing himself to any movement which partook of the nature of an ism." It was in 1888 that Chicago first be gan to ask, "Who is this man Dar row?" He had delivered a speech-in the Central Music Hall on labor and taxation, and Henry George had spoken on the same occasion from the same platform. Among those who were deeply impressed by this speech was ex-Governor Altgeld, and later he and Darrow went into partnership. "Altgeld was the first man of import ance to express any recognition of the fact that there lives a man of the name of Clarence S. Darrow," Darrow once remarked. Altgeld believed that in Clarence Darrow was the making of a man of destiny. Several years after the partnership had been formed Darrow went into politics for awhile and was elected to the state legisla ture. Some of his friends wanted to nominate him for mayor of Chicago. But he balked. "The people don't want me in the mayor's chair," he told them. "I am too radical." Mr. Rut land proceeds with his narrative: "Indifferent to personal appearances and conventional trifles of life, he pon ders and emphasizes the larger is sues. He is a brilliant speaker, quick at retort, incisive, epigrammatic. Six days in the week he gives over to the routine of business, but on Sundays he tucks loose pages of a favorite lec ture into an outer coat pocket and scurries off to some obscure place to preach Tolstoy from the platform of any church that "will open its doors to him, or to tell of the rich and deep humanity of Robert Burns at a single tax gathering or at an ethical league. Wherever men and women will listen to his utterances on the inherent worth of every human soul, there he will go. I have heard him talk until long past midnight to a handful of Jews in an upper room of the Chicago Ghetto. I have sat with a hundred radical Socialists, Anarchists and po litical and social outcasts for two hours and a half when he told the story of Waslova as drawn in 'Resur rection,' but as usual, with as much of Darrow as of Tolstoy... I have sat with half a dozen friends through the even ing and the nighty till 4 in the morn ing listening to him reading 'Bonnie Brier Bush', tales which were as real to him and to us "as reading from life:" Darrow's life, is an epitome of his theories and. his theories he has ex pounded in pamhlets and books which are unique in the literature of our time. The best of his books is en titled :"A Persian Pearl, and Other Essays,'* and in it he discusses, with a poet's style arid real insight, Omar Khayyam, Walt Whitman, Robert Burns, "rtealism In Literature and Art" and "The .Skeleton in the Closet."' The "Skeleton in the Closet" is a fdVefite phrase of Darrow's sym bolizing -the secret in almost every life which e^ah}es us, to understand the frality^a&d suffering of others. 4. second of 'Darrow's hooks, "An Bye for to Eye,'/ communicates, .the pay. chology of a murderer In TBx'mmW&uB ^.1 "''W1 as to make one feel, for the time being at least, the injustice of capital punishment. A. third argument, devot ed to the advocacy of Tolstby's doc* trine of non-resistance, is entitled "Re sist Not Evil.'' The most startling and revolution ary of Darrow's utterances is em bodied in a lecture on "Crime and Criminals," delivered before the pris oners •"in Chicago county jaii" and is* sued* in-a pamphlet. M-There-is- no such thing," says Darrow in his? ad dress, "as a crime as the word is gen-, eralljr understood. I do not tfelieve there is any sort of distinction be tween the real moral condition of the' people in and out of jail." He adds: "In one sense everybody is equally good and equally bad. We all do the best we cah under the circumstances." Then follows the argument: "There is only one way to cure so-called crime, and that is to give the people a chance to live. There is no other way, and tnere never was and other way since the world began." .•••. There is a touch of pessimism in Da^row's_ philospphy, and in "Fatm ingtpn," a story which is practically his autobiography, he voices, that sense of failure which comes to most of us at one time pr anpther. "All my life," he concludes, "I have been plan ning and hoping and thinking and dreaming and loitering and waiting. All my life I have been getting- ready to begin to do something worth while. I have been waiting for the summer and waiting for the fall I have been waiting for the winter and waiting for the spring waiting for the night and waiting for the morning waiting and dawdling and dreaming, until the day is almost spent and the twilight close at hand.'- In one sense, howfever, this is only the humility of an idealist. For Darrow has already accomplished a great deal along the lines he has chosen. The Land of Boy. A wonderful land is the land of boy, Where the hands on the Clock-mark the moments of joy, Where the hills are sugar, the moun tains are: cake And the rivers flow into an ice-cream lake Where candy grows on the forest trees ri_ And the fairies dwell With their mys teries The land of Boy—away, away Through the happy valleys of Golden Day! The land of boy is a dear delight, Where the sun shines sweetly and soft and bright Where the air is filled with the robin's song.., .... And the heart of venture -beats bold and strong Where hope's grave star burns Clear and fair Aild the wine of the summer is In the air: The land of Boy-raway, away The road winds .down to the Golden Day! There are tops and trinkets and marbles and books, Penknives, putty, and fishing hooks Printing presses and railroad trains,: Wheelbarrows, wagons, and driving reins Boats and whistles and hoops and skates, •. Sledges and sponges and drawing slates The land of Boy—away, away Over the hills of the Child-at Play I The land of boy is a sunny place, Where rosy ^heeks and a smiling face, Where romp and laughter and chatter and gleam Go round and round till the meadows dream And the stars come out and the jolden west Is red where the sun has gone to rest: The land of Boy—away, aWay To the wand of fairy and: elf and fay! Merry games and the venture heart In the land of boy are a living part Castle building and ships that sail On the pirate main, and the paths of whale Hope and love and beauty and gleam, All, all are a part of the boy-land dream To the land of boy I long to stray Through the happy valleys of Golden Day! —Baltimore Sun.

Something of the Trials and Struggles d£PreaLcher 1 of the Gospel. (By the Rev. Charles Stelzle.) It is frequently- insisted ^by some workingmen that ministers of the gos pel receive exorbitant salaries. It is true that in some cities there are a few ministers who receive large sala ries, but the 100,000 or more ministers throughput the United States receive teas, on &n .average, than is received by 'th© average mechanic. Thpusands of them receive less than $10.a week-. •The average minister spent 15 years iRphool. college and seminary, in preparation for his life's work, meah iwhile paying for his own suppprt while the hodscarrier whp. may 'npt be able tp read pr write, receives mere for his year's ,-werk—even theiugh he learned his trade in a daiy and en that day received higher wages than the .fully equipped minister is receiving. .the demands uppn the averiage minister' are ef such a nature that he finds the-greatest difficulty in Ji.Ytng. up. tp the high standard which everybody expects of him. He must Weat better clothesj he must live in,:a better house he must buy moY6 bopks he is expected te contribute more to charitable institutions and movements than the most highly skilled mechanic in his church he is called upon to move in a higher grade of society. Furthermore, during these years iof preparation, and *because he mingles with the best educated inen in the community, his ethical tastes such a, degree th^t it is very difficult for a man of flu© sensibilities to live on the coarser things in life. He must keep up to the times, socially and intellectually. To do this,,- h6 must attend. lectures, travel igreat distances at his own ex pense to attend meeitings pf ministers ?f denomination, bpth state and national. He is expected to perform a vast service in the community for which he receives no pay. Most any minister could earn many times- more money in some other vocation than he is now receiving. _The perilous "dead line" constantly stares him in the face. The average church prefers: the young minister, be cause ordinarily he is more popular. He has not been able to save' any money. When old age cemes, he must beceme a life insurance agent or a book agent, pr deypte himself to some other task which at best,- must be disagreeable. According to statistics whieh have been kept fpr many years ene in eight ef thei families represent ed pn the roll pf the ministers today will ceme tp the Beard pf Relief prac asking for. charity. This, to a rofined woman, is one of the greatest hardships of her life In spite of these discomforts and trials, the average minister goes on year after year, uncomplaining. He spent115 years in preparation for his work, knowing full well just what was before him. You may not agree with the preach er theology. You may think that he does not know as much abput the labpr questien as ypu dp—for Which perhaps he is partly to biame—but any fair-minded man will at least re spect him for his devotipn tp a cause Which' has for its sele purpose the uplifting of the community and the leveling up of the standard of living of other people. AMERICA'S MOUNTAINS SUPREME. irom the Outing Magazine: North America hais suffered shame fully from Alpine arrogaVice. Alpinists have looked upon glaciefless Col orado, the ridges bulging faintly above the continental plateau upon Poco catapetl and his sister Titans reaching Isthmusward upon the snowy dead craters of the. Cascades—and pitied us Americans that our lands offered mountain spbrt for none but W6men and old men. Volcanoes? An inferior sort of mouiitain. Th& Appalachians? Molehills. But on this continent are fields for climbing, greater in variety, wider in appear to every sort 6f mountaineer, included, than on any other of-the world's six areas and among summits physiCially attainable, prob ably the hardest, in the world. The Himalayas, with greater real eleva tion, have b&ses of attack discount ingly high, and the accepted idea that thin air prevents climbing above 25,000 feet bars their tiptops. If South Ameri ca offers greater height and heroic weather, Alaska requires training in a-sport quite new—sub-Arctic alpin ing, -for which you must persist and endure like a polar traveler, work ax and rope, eordel, or pack cayuses across tundra. .Its ten. or more summits between 15,000 and 20,300 feet present the greatest effective height, the long est snow and ice slopes in- the World. All but-Mtis. St. Ellas and Mt. Mc Klhley, 20,3.00 Jeet the highest on the continent, are virgin. Mt. Logan, 19, 500 feet, is the world's remaining al pine prqbleip. Swiss training alone will not win it. Climbers have avoided Alaska, oftener accepting challenges from Asia arid the Andes. Alpinists must succeed in3'this ultimate field: or. come to Judgment for their condescen sion. Alaska lacks only that prohibi tive elevation, for which you may as well train in a laboratbry vacuum.
