There prohahly nuver was n thai' In tho history of this nation when the deslru ami determination to cut wealth were so titilvermil, and when tlm popular estimate of a man's worth wai so largely made up on the score of hit luink account. The poor man has a ory pronounced feeling In thesu times of "not belli); In It." Outside of the president himself, there Is not a states ham In America today who Is half so ImiHirtaiit In the popular mind as .Mm I '. ItocUefeller or J. I'lerpoiit Monran. And except It he the presidency Itself, nine-tenths of the enccr .voiiiik men now pushing forward to the llrlnu line of the zestful battle of life would pre fer to be such men rather than have liny political nillce the nation could Klvc tin-in. In other countries the men of wealth feel and nclitiuwliilgp Inferi ority to the (treat statesmen, hut In this country our rich captains or Industry look rather contemptuously down upon mere mayors and cm-ernors, Judges and Comriessmeu. We have need of a broader uieauluc to the word siirces. We may keep on proiluclii the sroat est imcrcinitloti of money inaUers the world ever knew, hut If we do not leain better to appreciate the achievements of scholarship, of science, of crnt work In every department of lntelh",t ual activity, we shall not produce the world's creatcst writers. Its crentest scientists and Its (.'rentes! scholars, We need to learn, too. the old. old story that wealth has Its limitations, anil that there are countless desirable things It (iiunot buy. TECIlNICALTAnSURDITIES. The lend lis of absunllty to which a rauatlcal attachment to technicality and verbal er:ectlon otten carries our appellate tribunals have been Illustrat ed on more than one oivaslou. Tho failures and abortions or justice have been so frequent that certain states have enacted statutes prohlbltlnc the courts to reverse verdicts on appeal for trivial and technical errors. In other States there Is a vigorous move ment for such a reform of criminal law as would relieve the trial Judccs or the dread of "error In thl? record" and the appellate Juilccs of the assumed duty of microscopic examinations of records and reversals for minute Inac curacies or Hllcht departures from sa cred routine. Sonic leadlui; lawyers have Mattered themselves and the rest of society by the assurance that re versals on strained and fanciful urouuds are a tliliiK or the past. Here, however. Is a pniurul "modern In stance" civeii In an article lu Collier's. In April, 1IM)7. two men brutally beat a woman on the public street. One or the miscreants xtnod over the victim with a revolver to coniH)l her to take the beatltu;. Subsequently the men were am Med, tried and convicted. The statute on which the liiiormatlou was IniMil i-pcaks or persons who assault or beat other persons with cowhides, whips, sticks or "like thlnpi." and who at the time have In their possession pistols or other deadly weapons. The Supreme Court reversed the verdict or the Jury ami trial Juile In the case. On what urouiidV (In this, It appears that the priiseeiitlin: attorney, In his Information, had merely charged the defendants with havlnc used "a leather strap" In heatlim their victim. Now the statute only mimed cowhides, whips and Micks, and as a leather strap Is none of these thliuts the prosi cutlon should have so described It as to brim; It clearly ami unmistakably within the additional phrase "or like tlilni:." It had not dune this; It had supposed that the courts would make the mental effort necessary to infer that "or like tliliiu" Includes a leather strap. This Is where It had made a sad mistake. So the del'eiiilauts weie freed, and the art of drawlni; up In formations was fully vindicated.
