' A number of complaints have reached this office of policemen Blap ping and otherwise mistreating men placed under arrest.

It Is a serious offense against tbe dignity of the law for an officer to disregard the law If an offender against the peace of the community is insulting, the law provides a method of inflicting punishment First, the offender must be given an impartial trial before Judgment Is passed No officer is allowed to assume ihe task of being judge, jury and executioner t times, no doubt, the patience of an officer is taxed to the utmost, but one of the qualifications of a con server of the peace is to be self pos sessed and forbearing oo SHOULD BE ENACTED INTO LAW Congressman Pepper's bill, provld !ng that employers who threaten their employes with wage reductions or loss of employment for political purposes, shall be punished, should paefl There was a time in this country when elections were carried by the j heads of large Institutions Intimidat Ing their workmen with threatened loss of employment, if certain candi dates for office were not elected, but of late that has been resorted to less I frequently There can be no expression of the I popular will while workmen are driv en by fear to vote for one party or the other, and any man or group of men attempting to thus destroy pop ular goernment should be dealt with by the law not less severely than the legislative briber TO THE JEW AS A SUCCESSFUL MAN. A close observer of men answers the question. "How do the Jews get ahead'' He tells of Jews who came' to this country poor bovn. handicap ped by language and habits, who to day are men of great wealth, and he says "If you ride or walk up lower Broadway, New York City, say, from the City hall to Wanamakers store, a distance of about a mile and a quarter, a thing that will strike you most forcibly is the fact that fully 90 per cent of the names on the places of business on both sides of I the street are unmistakably Jewish. "Another thing which would not be I so apparent to you, although it is a, fact neertheless Is that most of these successful Jewish merchants are only one or two generations re moved from the East Side where their fathers or grandfathers arrived as immigrants from European countries In search of an opportunity In the land of the free "Many of the most successful Jews in New York do no, go back any fur ther than their own youth to the im- THE OGDEN STANDARD, OGDEN, UTAH, WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 1913. migrant period Robert Smith, a lit tle ovr 'Mi years ago was a poor Im migrant from Russln He started out as a peddler Today In- is at Hie bead of a laro fur house aud owns a piece of real estate in the heart of New York worth $1,000,000 An other remarkable case Is ihat of ' Louts J Horowitz, who was born In !

And, as a result, he Is about to be 6ent to prison He stepped outside his circle and now Is to suffer for his indiscretions Had he never been a prizefighter and nothing more than a hard working la borer he might have lived to better purpose He never would have been recognized by those other than of his class, and, while that failure to be acclaimed great might have robbed him of those moments of suprenn joy which have come to him. it also would have kept him out of prison and free from the dissipation whkh is to be his ruin.
