T'he i indus in this country iarc
having a hard time. The "revolu

Soine days ago the New York port
immigration authoritieis arrested MIr.
D)hirnll Sarker, one of' those who had
been convicted in the San Francisco
l-indll-Girmnani plot in 191S. anid had
complete1(d his terlll several lollnt(lus
ago. We\' are informed that theI
chaigoe against him, for whichli he is
threatened with deportlation, is that,
when the eontered theli country, heli was
likely to be a charge on public reve
nueis. As a fact he has been in this
counltl'y forl over four' years withiout
over having beeo in such a condi
lion. hrlat. then is lthe meaning of
the ilroceedtlings? The New York
Call has supplied the key. The Brit
islh consulate in S3an I'ranlcisco has
sllpplied the UC. S. imm1iglation an
lthorities with a list of persons, who
ih their judgment, ought to be de
Dort<'d. This list is not on the rev
ord of the case and noiody knoucws
wham. other lniaces are includeild ill it.
\We have since heard without sur
prise tllhat proceedings have beenll
started agaitnst Uihagwan Singh alnd
Salntokh Singh, who are serving sen
Iences at McNeil Is!alnd. Washington,
To puit ttemll on their ldefenlse whilet
they are still in prison is hardly fair.

Limpet's Peculiar Power.
"To stick like a limpet," is an old
saying, but few people know how it
is that a limpet is able 10o stick as it
does to the rocks upon which it passes
its existence. The creature is able by
mlenlns of the central portion of its
body, which can be raised inlepend
ent!y of the edge or frill which sur
rounds it, to create a vacuuln, much
in the snme way that a piece of soft,
wet leather can be made to adhere to
a smooth surface by pressing out all
the air. If taken by surprise with a
smart, sidelong blow, even a largze
limpet is easily enough dislodged, but
given the sightest warning, its power
of suction is instantly brought into
play, and very often considerable
force is then ne(essary to detach it.
One train left Monte Vista. Colo.,
cecently loaded with hogs and potan
toes with a nmurket value of $82,430.
It consisted of 18 cars of fat hogs from
the Monte Vista sections, six more

toes. The hogs were worth about
$3,000 a carload, and the potatoes $550

Over aind above every other ques

otte imiagines that the peace treaty

is labor's clear duty to give a lead

its support to the vwar.
Ini addition there are a multitude
of most complex and difficult ques-.

to carry on the defense of the
Bulletin staff in the courts. Two
members of the staff have been
fined atotal of $9,500, on charges
of sedition, charges which were
the direct result of the effort of
the corrupt political machine in
Montana to put a free press out
of business. The cases have been
appealed to the State Supreme
Court. It requires money to fight
these cases through the various
courts; it takes money for travel
ing expenses, etc., for transcripts
of evidence and stenographers'
hire. None of the money goes to
pay lawyers' fees, the lawyers en
gaged in the cases not only hav
ing donated their services, but ac
tually paying their own expenses.
The fines imposed and the expenses of
fighting the cases through the courts,
are the result of the Bulletin Staff keep
