THE House of Representatives lias
parsed the anti-lynching bill?and this,
tot^ right at the time when the courts
art failing as never before to administer
proper justice.
There are a gftod many people who
believe that mob law is better than no
law at all.

THE poor o'd Baltimore Sun^aper,
organ of the bbozcrs and bootleggers,
has fallen out with the United States
Supreme Court because that body has;
rerulereJ another adverse liquor decision.
The Sun's displeasure will not up-!

AT a recent meeting in current his-1
tory at Weslcyan College at Uuekhan-,

many home runs Babe Kuih made last'
year than knew who Senator Lodge;
is. No wonder. Babe Ruth excelled j
in constructive effort. Senator Lodge
infamously destroyed, and will onl> 1
be remembered as the name ol ,
lierostratus is preserved.

THE objectionable r iles cnfprced by'
the unions controlling railroad repair j
shops throughout the country are prov
ing a boomerang t<. workmen. Conditions
have become such that the
railroad companies c.? : no longer man-j
age their own woik-.:;oos thdy arc run
by the union leader who are intolerant
and autocratic *nd extravagant to
1a degree that has become unbearable. |
Overtime must be pant for at exorbitant i
prices; absurd rules have the result of.
allowing abnut halt us much work to be,
turned out as the company should i
have; inefficient employees and consti- j
tutional loafers are on the same foot- ;
ing as honest industrious workmen;!
and abuses t>f various sorts have been
fostered by the union fcaders until
the inevitable blow-up is at hand
Th> railroads arc ttetting rid of the loss
and annoyance by leasing their
5 shops to private contractors, who will
employ whrim they please and run them !
in accordance wiih their own rules.
Last week the Western Maryland i
Railroad shops at IJlKins, this State
were turned over to a private contrac-!
tor, and a hundred tnen thus lost all the ,
benefits they had under the liberal rail-1
road management IV is likely that th<j'
Hagerstown shops will be leased under1
the same conditions Most of the old
workmen will be retained, with the exception
of the inefficient and the
trouble-makers, but ihsy will probabiIhave
to work longer fbr the samt
amount of money and will lose many
privileges. The bin repair shops of the
Erie Railroad at Kuffalo, N. Y? also
pass this week into the hands of a private
corporation that will do the railroad's
work by contract.
Shepherd College <>et* Into Uniform.
By J. O. Knott.
I never knew who started it. Probably
the St. John's Academy boy? coming
to our town on a summer frolic,
and in uniform, put our Shepherd College
boys to thinking?for our college
girls completely lost their heads and
he.'rts Over that uniformed bunch
which blew in on us one summer, and
occasioned many of our fair coeds
to do much cajoling afterwards
to bring back the old and tried bui
ununiformcd boys of our institutior
to their former places at the feet ol
their lady loves. Bui, the possibility
of a repetition of tiie St. John's
Academy episode created an atmos
pherc very favorable to our boys having
their own military organization
ihus it cainc about and the decree
was signed that the boys of Shepherd
College were to wear uniforms, though
they were tut compelled to do so.
Very little studying was done whilt
tiie details of organizing and equipping
our company weic under way. 1 sup
pose Prof. McMurran was responsible
i'or the color of our unitorm?Kobe
gray. Any other color would havi
oeen at that time out of the question.
It is pitibabjc that Prof. McMurrai
also suggested that the coats be madi
"frock," though 1 recall there wai
much surprise over the sudden etnerg
enee of fifteen and sixteen year boy:
into long-tailed coats. I had, wher
donning my coat, much the satnc ex
pcrience that I imagine a girl has wher
she t-uts on her first long dress. I fell
a certain dignity belonged to the coa
uoat that the boy must sec was main
liut long before our uniforms ucn
made, or our guns came by consignment,
we had our organization to complete
by electing Officers.

did not, as I recall, cultivate as ass

being one of thc chief of sinners ir
this line, I look back upon it all with
no special regret, for I have come tc

With our long, frock coats, brass buttons,
our straps and stripes as officers,
we were ready for drill When
our guns thundered down upon the
pavement in front of the old college
building, as we obeyed Captain
Turner's command, "Order arms!" we
felt all of the importance and even
potency of our manhood, particularly
when the admiring co-eds stood lost in
amazement at our grandeur, and the
town folks gathered on the other side
| of the s?reet to see the "show."
Once Governor Jacobs, of West Virj
ginia, paid our college a visit, and our
! companv was suddenly called out to
honor his visit and to reflect credit
upon our school. Prof. McMurran
was so excited over the Governor's
possible arrival on the grounds before
our company could be formed and meet
him, that he scarcely knew what he was
' doing. His long strides that carried
| him the full length of the college
| i pavement, and the swinging of his
giant arms while his deep voice
! trembled with excitement in his command
to be ready, got us an "fussed

such is "drill," that you do in a moment
! of excitement what you have been
; doing'in ybur constant practice. I
' formed the company, gave my command
' and turned over the company to the
captain at the moment to "present
arms" to the Governor. The boys

a little group of interested listeners

number was heard to the very faintest

From the Charles Town Advocate we
take the following proceedings of the
Jefferson Circuit Oourt:
interest in trials in the Circuit:
Court was given zest by the cold weather
of Tuesday and Wednesday. Farmers
and others being prevented from
engaging in outdoor work became spectators
of court scenes, being regaled
in a way not often indulged by some
of them.
Henry McGolrick, indicted for keeping
a disorderly house in Charles
Town, and whose trial was set for Tuesday,
forestalled the curious crowd who
had assembled to hear the spicy evidence
in the case, by having his attorney
withdraw the plea of "not guilty"
entered when he was arraigned last
week, and had substituted therefor a
plea of guilty. Sentence will be im
poscu upon mm later.
The only jury trial of the Srst day i
was the case of Foubleday-Iiill blec- .
trie Company against the JetTerson i
Hotel Company, Charles Town, on a '
contract leasing some laundry ma-!
chinery to the iatter company. A ver- |
diet for $100 was returned in favor of
the plaintiff.
Three divorces decrees were entered, j
In two of the cases, the decrees weru
awarded the w ives, and in the third to '
the husband. Louise M. Thompson was j
awarded a divorce from Edwin J.
Thompson, and the custody of her son
James J. Thompson. The couple v. .-re
married at Harper's Ferry April 22.
1908. The second wife to win a di- ,
vorce was Marie Strut.:.r from Georgu.
Strother, the cost of the suit heing!
placed on the husband. Toe husband
whose violated marital rights were!
compensated mr Dy tne aivorce aecree,;
was Fdgar Davis. His wife's name ill,
or was Nannie Davis.
Special commissioners reported the
distribution of a fund arising from the
sale of real estate at Berkeley Springs,
owned by the defendant, in the case of
the Bank of Charles Town vs. John
Strother. After the payment of fees,
costs, and commissions, the report:
showed the fund was distributed as fol- j
lous: Farmers and Merchants Deposil
Company. 3081.40; Bank of Charles
Town, $3,171.22; Jnnie P. Strother
After the State had submitted its) (
evidence against Marie Strtither, who
was indicted for stealing an automobile I
tire, Wednesday morning, the court j
on motion of her attorney directed art
The big trial of the week, and tho
one in which much popular interest
centered, was that of Joseph Nalley, a
Harper's Ferrian, charged with owning1
a moonshine still. Three officers testi- j
Red that Nalley acknowledged to them
after his arrest that he had been mak- '
ing moonshine liquor for his own personal
use; that he had read in a paper
that such conduct was perfectly!
lawful. The outfit with what apparently
were all the attachments for extracting
moonshine from corn meal mash
fnnn.-l in Wollnt.'o ?L'L" *
.wM..u ? ? o iiwuav was an exiiiDi |
before the jury. Nalley himself when
put on the witness stand denied emphatically
what the officers stated about (
his aliened confession. He declared'
that the only wrong ctoing he had beers
guilty of in connection with the liquor
industry was making wine. At tho
time of his arrest he said he had Jl
quantity of wine, or what some fo'ks
call "old hen." in his house. The)
jury tv>ok only a half hour to agree on i
a verdict of not guilty.
