REPRIEVE FOR JACKSON
It has been sugngested that delay in the
punishment of tile wretch convicted of
the bestial killing of a popular boy in
Ravalli county would not be tolerated by
the people of that vicinity without detnoit
stration of public indignation which might
find expression in anticipation of justice
tinder the law.
An appeal has been taken to the supreme
court, which serves to stay the executioni
until the work of the trial court has
been reviewed and confirmed. The action
is in due process of law and an exercise
of a legal right of the condemned criminal.
It is hoped and believed that the people
of Ravalli county, who have conducted
themselves as becomes law-abiding citi
zens under the strongest imaginable provo
cation to disregard their own obliga
tions as well as the rights of the guilty
tperson under the law, will continue to
deserve the high opinion of their character
and self control which they earned
throughout the state when the wretch was
captured and identified. Without knowing
the reasons upon which the appeal is
based, it is proper to say that there is no
cause for any apprehension that the
_higher court will permit justice to Ibe
defeated through mere technical argu
mnents in such a case. A denial of jus
tice, even to the most loathsome of crim
inals, by the ministers of the law in re
sponse to a popular demand for 'hasty
punishment would be more to be deplored
than even mob violence.
The enormity of the crime goes with
umost force to the friends and acquaint
ances of the victim, but society generally
and everywhere is equally concerned with
them to know that such crimes will be
certainly and fitly punished. The people
of Ravalli county have no cause to fear
that the sherfT will permit the convicted
sman to escape jail, or that the judicial
olficers of the state will allow hint to
WANTED, AN ALPHONSE
After adopting a platform carefully
fratled to invite support front the voters
in and about Bloston who have been at
tracted by socialist theories, the Massa
chusetts democracy placed at the head of
its ticket one Colonel Gaston, whose po
litical mnanners, as well as his name, in
dicate devotion to the extreme in polite
ness. Colonel Gaston has been particu
larly effusive in his assurances of distin
guished consideration and regard for the
socialist leaders and in furnishing evi
dence of his approval of the things they
are supposed to favor.
The socialists have held their conven
tion. Their platform declares that the
democrats are no better than repulblicans
from the socialistic standpoint, and the
overtures of Colonel Gaston were met by
the chairman of the socialist convention
in his opening address with the announce
wnent that "When we go into the campaign
this year it will not Ie a question of 'After
you, my Dear Gaston,' but 'After us, my
Dear Gaston.' "
And the Dear Gaston of the Massachu
Sctts democracy is looking for some po
litical party which contains a good mtan
qualified to take the part of Alphonse
without forgetting his lines or the ameni
ties due between prominent citizens when
they meet in public.
AN ATOMIC ERROR
In a Milwaukee paper under a St. Paul
;date we find the following: "The North
Coast limited train of the Northertn Pa
cific road narrowly escaped being blown
to atoms by a gallon of nitroglycerine
found on the track six miles east of Butte,
The attempts to wreck railway trains
in this state have been plenty and bad
enough without exaggeration or invention.
It ought to reassure the readers of Mil
'waukee papers to learn that the can of
liquid which the representatives of the
morning papers described as nitroglycerine
was nothing more dangerous than stale
beer. The detectives, nor yet the morn
ing papers, have discovered how a gallon
of beer happened to become stale within
six miles of Butte, but the probable theory
is that the weary Willie exhausted his
strenuosity prior to the successful con
*Wnnation of the rushing of the can.
Even if he had. been correct in fact,
the St. Paul fiction writer would have
erred jn the conclusion upon which his
tale tdepended for thrilling effect. Un
less the most advanced scientists are en
tirely wrong it was nonsense for him to
assumo that the train would have been
blown to atoitms. The discoverer of radiut
is ready to demonstrate to anybody who
will furnish the radium that the long
accepted theory with respect to atoms
has been exploded more successfully than
the dynamite whicr has been used in
wicked efforts to wreck trains in the
Western country. Unless he is mistaken,
the atom in its final scientific analysis of
recent years does not exist at all, but con
tinues to radiate and disintegrate till it
reaches that infinitesimal quantity incom
prehensible even in the imagination of a
St. Paul news fakir. It is manifestly al
surd to say that a train would hIe blown
into an impossible, because non-existent,
state of existence.
The reputation and influence of the
press depends upon the accuracy of the
information and the dependable reasroning
which it conveys to the public. We pro
test against the flagrant injustice imposed
upon iboth stale beer and science by the
reckless St. Paul correspondents.

PRESIDENT OF ONE UNION
Political Capital Against Roosevelt Net
Found in the Miller Case.
['Detroit Free Press,]
In refusing to recede from his position
in the Miller case, Mr. Roosevelt has given
new assurances that he is the president
of all the people and not the president of
a class of the people. The unions may
bluster as Wall street blustered, and they
may threaten as Wall street threatened;
liut Mr. Roosevelt will not Ire b4dged front
the position he has taken, and as long at
he remains in tile White llouse the execr
tive department of the federal government
will not become a tail to the \Vall street
kite or the trades union kite.
Now that the dispute has ended in the
only way it possibly could end without
an abject and unthinkable surrender on
the part of the president, perhaps we shall
have some light oil the mystery of why
the unions raised the issue. They knew
the law in the case, and they must have
tulverstood that legally they did not have
a leg to stand on. 'Ihey must have known
Theodore Roosevelt. too. There is no ex
cusme for even a walking delegate's being
ignorant of the president's character. It
was as plail as the Washington monu
ment that Theodore Roosevelt would sdr
render to nobody on that issue. Whalt
was it, then, that the labor leaders did not
know when they threw down the gauntlet?
The temper of the American people, per
The charge has hbeen made with more or
less circumistantial detail that partisan
politics was at the bottom of the case.
Mr. Roosevclt's personal and political
enemies incited the Washington unions,
it is said, to make an issue on Miller.
They thought that if the president stood
firi, thie labor unions of the country
cmiull be turned against himt, and his de
feat would lie encompassed. If lie yield
ed, he could be defeated by the conserva
tive vote on the issue of his subserviency
to organized labor. Many trades unions
lent themAclves to this cat's paw game, in
the belief that the president could be
stampeded. They soon learned of their
double error. The president did not yield,
and public sentiment rallied instantly to
his support. The more intelligent ele
ments in organized labor were quick to
perceive that a blunder had been made,
and that in trying to fight the president
the unions were fighting the United States.
But the damage had bleen done. and on
gnnir.ed labor as a whole must bear ttfb
consequences. Whatever political capital
has been manufactured out of the inci
dent belongs to Theodore Roosevelt, and
this kind of political capital can always
be made by a chief executive who reso
lutely enforces the laws of the United
States and truckles to nobody.

A youtlg man employed in a responsible
position by a great corporation was re

an explanation from the manager of his

"I mean just that I You never said

Amtonag the unique characters of Ash
ville. N. C., is Uncle Nelse Bailey, an
ag;", darkey, who for years has enter
tained hangers-on about the public square
with the harangue on politics. Rain or
slhine, L'ncle Nelse never disappointed his
auditors, and his especial delight was to
;trguec with the negroes. Uncle Nelse was
a staunch republican, but one day he
riltarged his politics.
It all came about through his fondness
for other people's woodpiles.
L:(cle Nelse occupied a small cabin on
the outskirts of town, and did odd jobs for
a living. His route home led by the resi
dlince of Col. Virgil Lusk, a leading re
publican politician, of whom Uncle Nelse
was an ardent admirer and staunch sup.
'IThe colonel's woodpile had a special at
tt.iction for Uncle Nelse, and it was not
lng before Mr. L.usk's attention was
drawn to the fact that his wood was disap
I'aring more rapidly than his household
ileds warranted. He set about one day to
discover the cause, and it was this that
cha;tcd the current of events in Uncle
Nclkc's life. The colonel took a few
stirks of wood and loaded them with gun
powder and laid them near the path in
easy reach of any prowler that might hap
pen along. Uncle Nelse came home as
t.nual and anyone watching might have

ciated himself with his banjo to while

thus occupied long when there was an ex
plosion and Uncle Nelse was sent flying to
the hack end of the cabin.
F lie was late next morning in arriving at
hiw favorite stand on the public square
and everyone wondered what had become
of him. Finally he hove in sight, and the
lpectacle he presented was something to
,a:lrvel at. He was walking with one
crutch and a cane, and his head was tied
up in an old bandanna handkerchief. He
a:ls a mass of bandages from head to foot
and looked as if lie had been through a

AMONG THE PLAYERS
There are 24 great song hits in "The
Burgomaster," Pixley & Luders' greatest
musical comedy, which will be seen at the
Broadway October xi and za. Gustav
Luders has never written music that can
compare with his "Burgomaster" muelo
dies. "The Tale of the Kangaroo" has
been whistled and sung from the Atlantic
to the Pacific, and in almost every home
where there is a piano one will find a
copy of "I Love You" song, "College
Song," or the famous "Indian Chorus."
The big revival of the great musical com
edy has been made this year with a new
production and new costuming and as
many of the famous original cast as could
be engaged. The list of principals in
cludes such well-known people as Ruth
White, Oscar L. Figman, William Riley
Hatch, Thomas Ricketts., Charles Sharp,
R. J. Moye, George McKissock, Helen
Dexter, Harriet Sheldon, Louise Brackett
and Josephine Ditt. The chorus is a large
one and is said to be rather remarkable
for its beauty.
Nothing But Money.
This phrase has grown quite common
in this vicinity recently, attractive posters
with the above catch line being lavishly
displayed on fences, ash-boxes, bill
boards and windows. The line is used by
that very progressive young manager,
Elmer Walters, in gaining publicity, and,
incidentally, dollars, for his newest at
traction. "A Millionaire Tramp." In this
production Mr. Walters has made a long
stride to the front, for in this play he
succeeded in retaining all the elements of
quick action and broad comedy so dear
to the hearts of the masses, and eliminated
the impossible bombastic dramatic situa
tions that have so far characterized this
class of an attraction. The finale of "A
Millionaire Tramp" is without doubt one
of the most beautiful dramatic endings
ever given to any play, not a word being
spoken for at least five minutes before
the last curtain. Grand opera house, Oc

Gauthier has been hailed, as a revelation
of emotional effort, and Joseph Detrick's
Armand Duval is, in its way, as great
a triumph. The scenery and effects, to

Arrived at the courthouse he spent a very

of Sam and Lucinda. Sam was the first
