Chief lawyer for Mendel Beilis. (Copyright, 1913, by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.) Kiev, Southern Russia, Within the. Pale, Nov. 3. A criminal case that arrays the greatest autocracy on earth against the world's oldest religion; that calls as principal witnesses theo logians, university professors and medical men of international reputa tion; that cites into court sacred books on which 200 generations have based their moral code such a case must be acknowledged the criminal trial of the century! On April 2, 1911, Andrusha YusI schinsky, an undersized 12 year old Christian boy of simple parentage, was found murdered in the Ghetto of Kiev, the Jerusalem of holy Russia. On Orj. 8, 1913, the Russian gov ernment' by bringing Mendel Beilis, a Jew, to trial for ritual murder, in dicts all the sons of Israel! Both sides rest their case on the sacred books of the Jews. It is an unparalleled process! Poor little Andrusha Yustsehinsky was murdered wantonly and savagely. The question is how? And why? The prisoner charged with the crime is so nearly a figurehead in his own trial that his acquittal is gener ally conceded. . So not Mendel Beilis alone but the house of Israel is accused of "ritual murder!" And a process which calls 13,000,000 defendants to the bar of justice may well challenge the attention of the world! How did Andrusha Yutschinsky die? We, the defense, have claimed French medical jurists of equal standing have stated that the murder was committed by a person suffering from desire for revenge, mania or alcoholism. process ui riuuu ai-f-uatuiuu. Enter the Russian government with The a formal charge that the dead boy was tortured and murdered for religious purposes. "But," answer European medical ex perts, "the child did not die from loss of blood. The chisel-like instrument employed caused internal not external hemorrhage. Such a weapon never could be used by a person seeking to extract blood. On t lie opinion of Prof. Sikarsky, specialist In psychiatry, rests the key stone of the prosecution. He has long been the government's authority in in vestigations of morbid Russian sects, such as the Bessarabian fanatics who bury themselves and others as strange as they. On his opinion as a pivotal point the public prosecutor has turn ed a case of sordid slaying into a pro-1 cess of ritual murder. When Prof. Sikarsky alleged the j death of Andrusha Yustsehinsky as I one of "ritual murder" the judge of j Instenshion consulted two Christian j professors of Kiev and St. Peters burg in the sacred books. Both de- j nied such knowledge. i For a year the prosecutor waited j helpless, though the government has i 80,000 clerical soldiers at command! I Then the priest Prouditiss was discov- j ered in Iaschkent, on the far frontier! of Persia, in the center of Asia. This man had been previously discredited by his superiors, I allege. The Greek theologians escorted him with honors to St. Petersburg as chief theological accuser in the ritual trial of Kiev. Prouditiss' claim that the Jews use Christian blood for all important pur poses of life as medicine, betrothal, passover and burial would require a very acqueduct of life-fluid! Prouditiss cites the bible to prove his charge. But Sizenmunger confesses that the holy books of Israel have no word that gives the right to say JewB use Chris tiona blood. Prouditiss cites the Jewish book of Zarah, although Zarah is not a sacred book at all, but a centuries-old compi lation of legends, tales and rabbinical disputations more or less mystical. "And last,' 'says Prouditiss, "though we cannot discover ritual murder raged public sentiment lias started And if they return mo to office, I be lieve that, even without a partisan or ganization in- the legislature, I can do it. i "For parties are no longer neces isary.

Eugene Icheheyah cannot be sum moned by the defense. He has since been mysteriously murdered! The discovery in a Russian Ghetto of a Christian child's murdered body created tense excitement. Some frightened and ignorant people cried "ritual murder." But, for six months the public prosecutor- did nothing. Then the impending visit to Kiev of his majesty the czar, stimulated eag erness to clear up the mysterious case. Two days before the emperor arrived books such texts are to be found in the secret apochraphs!" Just here the counsel for the de fense for Mendel Beilis at Israel challenge the Russian government to bring the apochrapha cited into court! So the unexplained death of a little child becomes not only a national pro cess, but the trial of the world's great est religious literature!

The most direct evidence identify ing Mendel Beilis with the crime came from Casimir Shakowsky, a lamplighter, who testified that, meet ing little Eugene three days berure the tragedy the boy told him how "a man with a black beard" had driven fireside tales of a strong, loving peo ple. And the "secret" apochrapha? Will they come? No, for they do not exist! In old ritual trials experts were called to give opinions, one man against the other.

The folks who live in the mysterious oountry of Tibet, in Central Asia, are the most prayful people in the world. They pray, and pray without ceasing. You retire at night, and rise early in the morning, but long after you are asleep and long before the sun has risen the voice of prayer has filled the air. They pray everywhere, utilize every thing movable and immovable to help in their devotions.

Little strips of paper bearing orthodox prayers are affixed to the wheels, and at once they are revolved again and again by the grateful worshippers. In the ordinary Tibetan village the Buddhist priestly population may be divided into three classes.

Heney, the noted attorney who prosecuted the "land fraud" causes of Oregon and the celebrated "graft pros-ecutions-' of San Francisco, is strong for municipal ownership. "The hope of American democracy lies in municipal ownership and wom en's suffrage," said Heney. "The American business man does not have time to study the sociat and econom ical needs of his city. He is too busy making money. His wifo does. "The average American is perfectly content to permit the five profit-paying public utilities the gas, elec tricity, water, telephone and street railroads to be operated by private enterprise, while he, a citizen, as sumes the eight non-paying and ex ceedingly expensive public utilities the public schools, parks and play grounds, lire, police and steet depart ments, sewer system, hospitals and jails. "Most men fear that the public own ership of profit making utilities would ircrease political corruption. It would not. My close personal study of the exposures that have taken place in the past 2n years of corruption in our large cities convinces me that the privately owned public utilities are the principal cause of corruption and in efficiency in municipal government, it San Francisco had had municipal ownership there would have been no graft prosecution. Privately owned public utilities played politics for priv ileges. That is generally what causes graft In every city. "Corporation owners and politicians are not bad men.
