Johnson's Big Victory.
Lenin's Bullst. Bonus and Strike. Electrocution No. 200. , ?By ARTHUR BRISBANR? (OwrUkl. 1*M) The vote in California shows 1 Hiram Johnson renominated for the Senate by a majority five times as big as his ma jority when first nominated for the Senate, six years ago. That is doing pretty well, even for loyal California. Lenin is getting better and will take a trip south, just like \a bourgeois, for his health You learn that surgeons, only this year, cat oot of his mastoid muscle a bullet fired into it by Fanny Kaplan, who tried to murder him four years ago.. Those who say that all bol shevists are Jews and all Jaws in Russia are bolshevists will observe that the girl that shot Lenin is a Jewess. She shot three times and refused to tell the names of her accomplices. That took courage, probably. The bonus bill, giving sol diers small and well-deserved compensation?not for their services, but for actual finan cial loss of jobs and money? Is now kw; all but the Presi dent*' Jgnature. 1 4 that opposed the bill prod' -t that he will veto it. If he does he will take upon his party and Ms own career a considerable load. # I Attorney General Daugherty secures a temporary restrain ing order again.* the six strik ing railroad shopcrafts unions. The injunction prevents picket ing, interfering with the oper ation of trains, and the use of strikers' funds. This is new in the wsy of strike settlements. It may work; It may not It depends on the temper of the strikers. The President tried to settle the trouble more peacefully, ask ing the railroads to take lw*k the mea without depriving them of seniority rights, which rep resent many years' work. Vva shall now see how the iajunc * tion idea works. Striken ac cused cannot reply to the At torney General as the railroads replied to the President. Boddy, young colored man, killed two detective*. He has r few cheerfully to his death tn the electric chair. Qe ate heart ily, Milled as he walkel brisk ly toward the death roam, eay ?ing: "Goodby, Doc," U>j> the . prison physician. In S moment i he was a long way from there. With Boddy was executed Her-< bert W. Smith. He seised a shotgun while his hands were , manscled snd killed a postmas ter who had helped arrest him. He also died stolidly. The badly formed brain that i.iskes a man commit murder enables him to go to his own killing lightly. Smith was number 200 of those ldlled la Sing Sing since the death chair started work k fne there. Does capital punishment pav? Would it have been better for jttie State had the 200 men been punished?not as they nnnish-sd their victims, hut otherwise, without kfl'inr? Does the Government killing two hundred men keep other men from kill In*? Recent increases in mur der answer "No." f - Sinee "Stumpy" Mslone. with no legs, begging for a living, was found to have a dress suit, automobile, and chauffeur, the begeing business has 'sllen off badly. There is hardly a liv ing in it any more, say the L experts. Do not, however, let lerless Malone cheek your charity. What you give may not always help s deserving case, hut it alwsvs helps YOU. Charity ?f all kinds is st best a moral gymnasium irt which those that practice benefit. As regards the world at k large, philanthropy does little. Only good government, plus laws and education that dimin ish human selfishness, do sny f real good. '<1 The Pennsylvanis railroad orders ? 115 locomotives of "heavieet type." Whst rail roads need and must have, if they expect to compete with flying machines, motor trucks, and passengor automobiles, is some equipment of THE LIGHTEST TYPE. A system that uses 100 tons of train snd locomotive to carry ten tons of human freight will not long > compete with modern methods. Our Commerce Department says this country sent about 400,000 tons of coal to Europe in July, while the strike was staring the country in the face. A little later Americans were paying big prices to bring coal from Europe. Ask why the l Government can't regulate that kind of waste and nonsense and you will be told: "It is wrong to interfere with busi . nees and non-cooperation."
