Warning Against Aiding in Evasion j
of Law?Winners of Prizes
Few men would assist a criminal in
planning a murder, but it is a shame to
the profession that so many so-called
lawyers will for a large fee assist the
criminal in evading the law and the pen
alty of his guilty act."
So declared Representative Arthur \Y.
Kopp of Wisconsin in an adriress to the
praduating class of the National Univer
sity I>a%v School, at the commencement
exercises last evening, in the New Na
So long as the shrewd practitioners are
willing, for a consideration, to help men
to evade the law or to violate it with im
punity, so long will justice have miscar

This is the day of social and economic

regulating the relationship between em

One Reason for Unrest.

assist men to do business in spite of law,

of our profession have been willing to as
sist men who wish to do business in
spite of the law. or to evade the law, is
responsible for much of the unrest and
dissatisfaction today. There ought not
to be any doubt about what is lawful and
what is unlawful. The legal profession
can do more to remove this doubt; can do
more to see that the laws are obeyed

Auto Deputy's Narrow Escape.
W. A. Brooke, Montgomery county's
automobile deputy, had a narrow escape
from serious injury while chasing a
speeding automobile yesterday afternoon.
His machine was damaged. The autoist
he was after escaped and was last seen
speeding in the direction of Washington
at a lively rate.
The machine that caused the trouble
was a gray racer bearing a District of
Columbia license tag. Deputy Brooke
chased the auto about four miles into
Rockville. Shortly after entering Rock
ville Brooke overtook the gray machine,
which contained three men, and as he
attempted to pass it the driver of thfe
fugitive auto pulled sharply to the right,
forcing Brooke's machine into a tele
phone pole. This brought the chase to an
end and allowed the speeder to escape.
Brooke, thinks, however, he will be able
to locate the operator.
The deputy spent the greater part
of the afternoon patrolling the roads
about Rockville and paced a large num
ber of machines. Only two, however, in
addition to the one that got away, were
found to be exceeding the speed limit of
twenty-five miles an hour, and the opera
tors were placed- under arrest. They
were W. D. Allen, who gave his resi
dence at 1214 18th street northwest, and
H. W. Price, who gave his address as
V?211/i Louisiana avenue. According to
the speedometer on Brooke's machine,
Allen traveled for a short distance at a
rate of forty-eight miles an hour, and
Price at a rate of thirty-two miles an
hour. Mr. Allen, who was accompanied
by his wife, did not have the necessary
money for collateral, but was allowed to

Rev. G. F. Williams, Recently Rein
stated, Attends Service.
Rev. Gilbert F. Williams, formerly rec
tor of Christ Church, Navy Yard, who
was recently reinstated in the Episcopal
ministry by the Bishop of Washington,
after having been unfrocked for four
teen years, took communion in the
Church of the Advent, 2d and U streets
northwest, yesterday. He was served by
Rev. Edward M. Mott, rector, who said
after the service:
"My faith in the innocence of my
friend has been strong during all the
years. Mr. Williams was such a stead
fast man, so patient under his suffering,
but so strong in his protestations of his
innocence, that I was confident that time
would lift the cloud from his life."
E. C. Ford, 73, Hurt by Fall.
Edward C. Ford, seventy-three years
old, G28 Pickford place northeast, fell
over a stone yesterday afternoon while
watching men employed on the Columbus
memorial statue in front of Union sta
tion. He sustained injuries to his face
and head and was taken to the Casualty
Hospital. He was not seriously hurt.
Cardinal Gibbons Lays Corner Stone.
Cardinal Gibbons laid the corner stone
of the new St. Charles Theological
Seminary building at Baltimore yester
day afternoon in the presence of a large
number of the Roman Catholic clergy
and laity of both the Monumental city
and Washington. The cardinal and mem
bers of the faculty of St. Mary's Semi
nary of Baltimore, tpgether with those
of the Catholic University of this city,
proceeded to the grounds in a body.
He gaily goes into the stores and buys brick cheese and oven
doors and things and has them charged; the smile he wears is good
to see; with fifty-seven kinds of glee his bosom
seems enlarged. He seems to like the little graft
of buying up a whole blamed raft of goods jf
divers sorts; and strangers seeing him would say:
"He surely has a queenly way! He seems a prince
of sports!" But on the first day of the month?
collection day, say June the oneth?his sweet
smiles aren't there; and when the tired collector
comes he snorts around and haws and hums, as
savage as a bear. "This bill must be corrected,
please; I didn't buy that Sweitzer cheese nor yet
that stovepipe hat; you have me charged with
potted meat?it simply wasn't fit to eat?I will
not pay for that! Your prices are too beastly
high; you soak me, for you know that I am always prompt to pay;
take back your bill and make it right, then come around next Thurs
day night?don't bbther me today!" The wan collector, tired and
pale, must camp upon this fellow's trail and circumvent his wiles; and
still the villain she pursues until she wears out all her shoes and
sickens of his smiles.

Before Theosophical Society.
"The Philosophy of Spinoza" was the
subject of a lecture delivered by E. V.
Brookshire before the Capital City lx>dge,
Theosophical Society, yesterday.
"Spinoza," said the speaker, "exempli
fies the fact that whenever it is desirable
that the course of human thought should
be guided to some higher plane some
teacher, capable of so guiding it, comes
to the fore." He cited the life of Jesus
as an example.
"The most Important thing in life Spi
noza teaches," said the speaker, "is to lie
able to think well, and the mind dis
turbed by emotions of anger, jealousy or
impurity is not a fitting channel for giv
ing expression to the higher thoughts
which come from the Christ plane of
