that he inherited bad tendencies and
J'here were no good influences in the

anged the boy's mind.
The boy whose Kfe the "Money
King" would gain never heard of the
lad who died at Ludlow. Rockefeller
never heard of either boy, but
"Mother" Jones "mother of miners"
'and friend of the oppressed every
where, knew the history of both.
When the "best little lad in Lud
low" was murdered "Mother" Jones
openly charged the fuel interests
iwith responsibility for the murder;
she later told John D., Jr., himself
that he ought to help reimburse so
ciety with a 'life for a life."
Now "Mother" Jones is to super
vise the reclamation of Herman
Coppes, to give the boy murderer a
chance to live the life the Ludlow boy
might have lived. Young Rockefel
ler has told her to spare no expense
in the education of the boy.
"Mother" Jones, with Rockefeller's
aid, has started the official machinery
in Illinois which she hopes will lib
erate Coppes before Feb. 27, his 17th
birthday anniversary.
If Gov. E. P. Dunne signs Herman's
pardon, "Mother" Jones will send
him, at Rockefeller's expense, to a
farm in Nevada. He will be in charge
of a teacher who will study his men
tal and his moral possibilities and
limitations with a view to directing
his activities according to his capac
ity. "Mother" Jones' experiment, it is
said, is the first practical "dollars and

Washington, Feb. 10. Ed. L. Keen,
European manager of the United
Press, with headquarters in London,
and William Philip Simms, manager
of the Paris bureau of the United
Press, after a short trip through this
country are surprised at the opinion
this country holds with regard to
the friendship of England and Prance.
Any idea that the the allies bear the
United States a lasting friendship be
cause of ammunition shipments is
erroneous. The allied countries look
on the U. S. as a dollar-making na
tion, staying out of the war for com
mercial reasons.
This attitude, according to Keen,
is especially prevalent in England
among the general public, which is
convinced Uncle Sam is prepared to
swallow any "insult to his honor"
rather than relinquish this unprece
dented opportunity of lining his
pockets with European gold. The
feeling borders on contempt, rather
than hate. This view is not held in
official circles.
In official circles of France, also,
says Simms, no censure is held for
this country, but the French people
generally are not so lenient They
think the United States stands for
peace and making lots of money at
any price; that dollars count before
ideals. . t
Both correspondents say there is
no disposition on the part of the allies
to make peace, and they are ready to
fight the war to a definite conclusion.
