The second is the as tonishing numbers of people competently prepared for life at every point except the one which has to do with the conduct of • their love life. And the third, whch is the most pressing, as • the need of establishing suitable • restraints and penalties to meet "' similar offenses in the future. NO TENDENCY TO CONDONE OFFENSE It is not alone in expressed .public opinon that the new atti tude toward such irregularities is demonstrated. In the sort of men chosen for the jury, in the court's interpretation of the law, and especially in the charge to the jury, there is a notable absence of the disposition of men mutu ally to condone offenses peculiar to themselves as men. Here in the west it is certain that a suffi cient number of citizens have gnftvn up and out of this an cient unconspiracy of sex to Stamp our public rating of this affair with the impress of social consideration. Any obloquy resting upon us fits a community in which such things can happen has been more than counterbalanced by spirit in which it has been met. But the other two items are stil lto meet. The one of them involves a measure of preven tion,' the other concerns the question of the cure. Upon the second I touched yesterday; it is the extraordi nary insufficiency of the knowl edge of the principles of human conduct, shown by the parties to the case. They knew, of course, that what they did was called wrong, "wicked," but they did not know it to the degree which prevented them from doing it, as they would have been prevented by knowledge from exposing themselves to smallpox or the plague.

Drew Caminetti guilty of an infraction of the Mann white slave traffic act last evening; had known a recommenda tion for leniency was within their rights that rider to the verdict would have been returned.

No Attack Made on Girl; She Dreamed It, Say Officers That Miss Ivy Keeton, 14 year old daughter of William Keeton, 1052 Permaln street, Elmhurst, dreamed she was attacked by a man early yesterday morning is the belief of Captain of Inspectors .Lew Agnew, who detailed several detectives on the case, The window through which the In truder was suppotted to have gained entrance to the girl's room was found nailed down with a spike. There were no fingerprints on tha sill and no footprints on the soft ground be low the window, A similar dream was experienced a few weeks ago by Miss Keeton'e, elder sister, the police Bay, i Ishi, protege of Professor Kroeber, presenting arrows to Secretary Lane, and naming Interior Department "Big Chief of the Deer Creeks. Ishi, Attired in New Togs, From Hat to Socks, Presents Magic Wands to Interior Secretary Until yesterday noon Ishi was the only Indian in the United States not under the jurisdiction of Secretary of the Interior Lane, but now he is a subject like all the rest, for he has given Lane two arrows of his. own make and, made him "big chief" of his tribe. Standing patiently outside the Fair mont hotel, Ishi, last of the Deer Creek Indians and two years ago totally ■unacquainted with any white men, waited for Secretary Lane just like the horde of faithful democrats inside, except that Ishi had some thing to give him instead of some thins to ask for. When Ishi was first shown a pic ture of Lane several days ago and was told that Lane was a "big chieT' in Washington, his first remark, was: "Look at him; he hasn't got any But yesterday the secretary of the Woman's Torso Found; Murder Baffles All NEW YORK, Sept. 6.—Detectives at Cliffßide, N. J., today were trying to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of the unknown woman whose torso was found in the water near that place yesterday. The woman undoubtedly was mur dered and her head, arms and limbs severed. Surgeons who have exam ined the torso declare the work of removing the parts of the body was that of some one skilled in the use of surgical instruments, had his hat on when Ishi saw him, so the broad grin on the Indian's face is believed to have been only one of pleasure at meeting Lane and not one of scorn for the white man's inability to keep from getting Lane was smiling, too. when he approached Ishi, and had he known that Ishi had bought with his own money a new khaki coat, sombrero, shiny black shoes and a new pair of socks for the occasion, he would have smiled even more widely, for Ish! never spends a cent if he can help it. Through Prof. A. L. Kroeber, cu rator of the Affiliated College mu seum, who is Ishi's guardian and in terpreter, the Indian explained that he had made the arrows himself and wanted the "big chief" to have them as a sign of his authority.

IS WON BY ESCAPED sura Former New York Prose cutor Fails to Answer Gambling Charge— Quits Canada 'COATXCOK, Que., Sept. 6.—One year may elapse before it is legally deter mined whether Harry K. Thaw, the fugitive from the Matteawan asylum for the criminal insane is to be de ported from Canada or is to receive the protection of its laws. Assurance to this effect was given to Thaw to day by his counsel. Thaw is certain that he has won a long delay, and immediately after breakfast lie began packing up for the journey to Montreal, where he must be produced In the supreme court September 15, when arguments will be delivered on the writ of habeas corpus. It had been supposed that the at torneys who obtained the writ had withdrawn from the case, seeing noth ing but defeat, but their retreat was only a masterly piece of strategy by which the doors may have been opened for a test of the constitutionality of the immigration law governing de portation. Complications have been added to the general aspect of the Thaw case by the events subsequent to the ar rest of William Travers Jerome, for mer district attorney of New York, on a charge of gambling. Jerome was to have been arraigned before Magistrate McKee at 9:30 o'clock this morning, but Hector Verretti, acting for the New York lawyer, had the hearing postponed for a week. Mean time Jerome left Canada, going to Nortons Mills, Vt. In a sense Jerome thus made of rflmself a fugitive from justice, reversing the position of Thaw, who is a fugitive in Canada. Jerome, if convicted, would have to go to Jail, as there is no fine under the gambling law. Influence has been brought to bear upon Crown Prosecutor A. C. Hanson to have the charge agalsst Jerome, who is at liberty on $500 ball, dropped. The crown prosecutor re fused to do this. "I received a great number of com plaints about the open gambling of Mr. Jerome, and I consider it my duty to push this case against him," said the prosecutor. "He was setting a bad example for the children of this community by gaming in public for money. Every one could see bim and his companions playing." Thaw is undoubtedly a popular idtol here.
