The Suspended Sentence In two or three weeks the usual grist of liquor rases will be before the criminal district court. As in former veers, the majority of defendants are mere youths, ranging in age from 17 to 25 years, according to their own testimony; and it is safe to predict that *0 per cent will apply for suspended sentences. If the records of former terms ere maintained a majority will plead guilty, receive a suspended s« ntence, and will be turned loose, many to take the next step in crime. Other youths will be recruited to carry on the liquor traffic for the •higher-ups.’’ They will serve until they, too, fall into the hands of the law, receive their 1 suspended sentences and ere turned loose upon society. Each term of the criminal district court seea the same routine; the same cates with new defendants; the same pleaF—and the same verdicts from the jury. The juryman who states he does not believg in the ap plication of l**e suspended sentence law except in cases where it is very obvious that justice could best he served thereby, is seldom selected by the counsel for the defense In fact the best way for a juryman to become a “wall flower” while the trial of liquor cases is on is to take a decided stand against suspending the sentence of every bootlegger w’ho throws himself upon the mercy of the court and swears be is under 25 years of agr. Many district attorneys and others who have watched I he workings of the Texaa courts have reached the conclusion that if the Dean law is to be made ef fective it must either be modified or that section of the suspended sentence law relating to liquor defend ants repealed. Some have even gone the length of ad vocating repeal of the Dean law. leaving the handling of liquor case* up to the federal courts, as has been done in New York, citing the fact that since the repeal of the Mullins-Gape law in that state, far more convic tion* have been secured in the federal courts than were secured through the combined federal and state courts prior to the repeal. Repeal, however, would not be the remedy. T»exas can enforce her laws; but they must be so constructed that a jury can punish as its collective conscience may decitate. The record of Cameron county in regard to liquor cases is far better than in the average Texas county. In fact, there are counties in the state where the dis trict attorney, knowing that conviction is impossible under the Dean law. will prosecute only the most flagrant violations- The extreme penalty provided, coupled with the suspended sentence law, is making a farce of enforcement and the liquor runners, aware of the tendencies or tendency of jui4e* to apply the suspended sentence law. are conducting what might be termed preparatory schools in crime in which youths under 25 are the students. Juries could remedy this situation, but before that la accomplished it would be necessary to either achieve a complete mftamnrphosia of human nature or make radical changes in the jury system. The Merchant Marine Senator Fletcher of Florida, who has consistently opposed auctioning of the government’s merchant ships, ha* launched a new attack in an effort to "keep the American flag on the high seas.” “Privata ownership is *11 right,” Senator Fletcher is quoted as saying, “provided it gives us a merchant marine. I don’t insist on a government-owned fleet r except to guarantee us a merchant marine." The Florida senator has been using strong language for some time concerning the bargain counter sale of the government’s ships to private owners. He asserts that American overseas commerce is dear to his heart. A* ranking democratic member of the senate commerce committee, he is in a position to ascertain with con siderable accuracy what a government-owned fleet has accomplished for American commerce. “What security has an American exporter if he must depend on foreign ships to carry his- goods to market?" is the query of the Florida senator. “Foreign ship owners cm deprive him. at will, of his transpor tation facilities." Doubtless, the Florida senator is unduly alarmed over the situation. While it is true that private own ers have taken over many of the American lines and are under contract to operate them under the American flag five years, there is no logical reason to believe they will notdtontinue operating them under the Stars and Stripes after the contract period has expired. American shipping, like American industry, is gaining in efficiency to tb» extent where it can meet the addi tional labor cost and still perform ths required service in competition with foreign ships manned hy cheaper foreign labor. Operation of the various lines by the government proved anything hut satisfactory to the majority of exporters, and the records indicate that the government was no mere efficient in handling ship lines than m managing railroad*. As a matter of fact the ship lines, like the railroads, are operating far more eco nomical and efficiently under private ownership. Most of the protests against the sale of the various ship lines emanated from districts or interests desiring special service which was provided by the government at a loss—and the losses were made up from the publie funds. In other words the publie paid for that special service, service which under privte ownership would have been paid for by those directly benefited. The American publie is rather shy of subsidies, but In the event it is necessary to subsidize the various lines to assure efficient operation under private own ershpi, the subsidies will be provided, They would not, at least, exceed the losses incurred under government operation, and for which the public paid without vio lent protest. “GENERAL DEPRESSION” DEMOBILIZED (Fort W'orth Star-Telegram). A cartoonist draws a disconsolate and moth-eaten military figure labelled “General Depression” mourn Hag over the fact that he no longer leads the political bartdt which is shown passing in all cheerfulness. It }i g timtly and ptrtinent comment on the business jtepect of the present presidential campaign. The myth of political eff»ct upon business was on* republican raising. Campaign managers for thgt 6 Sjpli vi • ■s . 1 party bava been abla to get, by out means or another. a color of support for their argument that auction of the democratic candidate would reduce volume and profits of commerce, and make employment less avail able and wages lower for the workingman. This year, although the effort has been made to raise the ghost again, commercial eventa have atubbornly refused to lend even a modieum of corroboration. In fact, at the very moment when Governor Smith was sending out his clarion call for the substitution of a democratic administration in control of the na tional government, the stock market, that supersensi tiva barometer of business, was recording the begin ning of a new and prolonged upturn. Since Governor Smith’s speech of last week, the familiar “market aver ages’’ have registered an advance of approximately , three points and the trading has become more active than at any time within the past ten weeks. If tY* market had only behaved differently the re publican spokesmen might have had something to talk about. They would have been encouraged in their ef fort to show how any demonstration by democrat* tends to send shivers down the backs of investors. But, with inconsiderate perversity, the market has spiked that particular gun, and has spared the country a lot of political buncombe. It isn’t a Smith market, or a Hoover marl^et, or a Coolidge market, as every sensible person knows, and it is not worrying just now over the question of who shall be the next president. Not only the stock market, but the trade reviews also have voiced the prevalent optimism in business and finance. Dunn’s Review refers to “the more con fident tone’’ now in evidence, and Bradstreet’s enumer ates basic industries which have taken on "a more active appearance.’’ The old idea that election years are had years for business dies hard, but recent events should do much to squelch it. There have been times, in the days of the greenback and populist movements, when national elections created uncertainty and de pression. These exceptional casea are the ones most easily remembered, and this probably accounts for the persistence of a notion which has few facts to support it. The prominence of such captains of business as Mr. Raskob in the democratic councils is potent »n perhaps more ways than meets the public eye in main taining the even tenor of business. There is certainly no sign that the approaching election is serving as a business deterrent. It is true that depression prevails in some lines, as in cotton and woolen textiles, but these troubles are of long standing. The automobile and steel industries are enjoying much better business than they did at this time a year ago, and from present prospects 1928 will prove a better business period than 1927. The country shows no in dication of being disturbed by Senator Smoot’s repeat ed prediction of dire calamity if the democrats win, predictions which, it will be noted, are not concurred in by any republican who is actually in touch with business. . ■■ =~~——- ~-■ IK® Worfldl aradl All! Bf Charles t Driscoll l’8E OF CRIMINALS In this column it has been proposed and advocated that persons convicted of premeditated murder be given their choice of electrocution or life imprison ment, with the understanding that the latter sentence would carry with it liability tc use for meducal exper imentation. The Davenport (Iowa) Democrat and Leader, commenting on this proposal, says; “Why not? Mr. Driscoll's suggestions are worthy of serious consideration. There are people, we know, who will object to them, but the idea that people «h>i take life might well expiate their crimes by being the means of saving other lives is worth thinking about." This is the first commendatory word I've seen about my pet proposal in print. 1 pass it on to you with the prediction that a few years will bring many columns of discussion on this subject. Ir. is very important. It is altogether practicable. Only a certain widespread squeamishnesa about sub jecting living humans to experiments that might kill them stands in the way of full and complete discussion of this idea by humanitarian folk. We are willing to strangle a man to death with a rope drawn tight about his neck, in the name of the law, or to put him to death by pa>sing mysterious cur i rents through his body, but we are not willing to let the poor devil live to be of use to his fellow men. Recently I read an account of a double or triple hanging in Maryland. The first murderer was tossed off the platform with a noose around his neck, and he scared nearly all the official witnesses out of the ex ecution chamber by his long-continued struggling and labored gasping, after he was suspended at the end cf the rope. Few of the witnesses were able to return to see the next man dropped. All that was gained by strangling there murderers was getting them out of the way, so that they might do no more murders. But if they had been allowed to live, on their own motion, to serve as subjects for in telligent research and experiment, for instance, into j the causes and cure of the common cold, they might , have repaid the race richly for the lives they took. They would never have suffered as much as they did in ‘he execution. Probably they'd never suffer physical pain at all as a result of medical experiments that would add greatly to the world's know-edge of dis ease and rure. Tirndiy Vl@ws I IRELAND’S GOVERNMENT PROBLEMS DISC USSED By WILLIAM T. OOSGRAVE ! W illiant T. Cosgrave attended C'amnridge univer sity and Trinity college at Dublin, Ireland. He be came closely connected with Ireland's political activities at an early age and held many positions of importance in the government. His rise from rear rank revolutionist to president of the Irish Free State marks him as a picturesque figure in Ireland’s history. He has held the post since 1922). I have witnessed the example of the German social ists in 1919, the British labor party in 1924. and even the bolshevists in Soviet Russia, and have applied the lesson to the extremists of Ireland. When I just took up my *»ost I was in the position of a father with a flock of unruly brats. Stern meas ures had to be taken, but no sterner than those used against us. If I had not been stern it would have been ! my greatest mistake at the time. The greatest thing that ever happened to this coun j try was the entry of the republicans into the Dail. Our opponents used to think every wheel in the | legislative machine was created for grinding them to I bits. Every time we passed any repressive measures ] of one kind or another we were accused of being ty rants and dictators. And every time we had to explain that such measures were for the whole country’s good and not for the punishment of one man. Then they put forward the most nonsensical eco nomic theories. When thev first entered the Dail they were still under the impression that you had simply to wave a wand and factories would grow up as if by magic. The longer they serve in the Daily, the more they will see the necessity for a sound groundwork, if the Free State is to develop any industries. Another trouble we must contend with is the windy oratory surviving from days of "the trouble.” The or ators seldom deal wit hactual. concrete problems. They are swept sway by floods of sentiment or emotion. Once you get them in the Dail they wilt soon "sober up.” They settle down to the business of the country, sad serious discussion takes the piece of rhetoric. ^ 0 THE OLD HOME TOWN ffviOHT NEED »T-JM MOVING bOWH ON THE BANK OF BUCK CREEK!, I ^ -— - prAMjig “It Cant be Done" I By FREDERIC ARNOLD KUMMER jj ,/ £ _ OLD MAN TREAD\NEl_L MOVED HIS HOUSEHOLD G,OODS THfeOLXSH TOWN TODAY- SEVEN MOVES /Al SIX MONTHS IS HIS RGCOftD _ ------ ‘ <S2mm eg* w-UAw-gy e<wi»w. h»bm 9 -A- - tB TT..H !■■!■■ ■■■■■»—■ ■ I Tm~ ■"■■■ l"H %' mm “Can’t you act?” he shouted. READ THrS FIRST: The story opens with the pending displacement of the star, Alice Car roll. of the Davidson Productions Co. Alice’s contract is about to expire, and Lew Davidson, a hard-boiled judge of pretty women, has been seen to scan cynically the first traces of wrinkles in her otherwise girlish face. Her fate is regarded as sealed. Tony Hull, a director with a sense of decency, a tail, gray-eyed man of thirty-five, has secret hopes of wit nessing the elevation of Jane Dare, a small, graceful woman just emerg ing from joyous youth, of great beauty and fine character, to stellar honors. (NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY) CHAPTER 1! “How did you drift into pictures?” asked Tony. “ft's frightfully simple. Two years ago I was working in stock, up in Albany. Getting a lot of experience and mighty little else. Naturally 1 was anxious to get back to Broadway. These small towns are great places —to die in. So when a girl friend of mine wrote me she’d gone with the Globe, and was playing a lady in-waiting in the big Mary Queen of Scots picture they did that year. I decided to have a try at it myself. I’d been on the stage for two years then—ever since I was sixteen—and thought I knew enough about acting to get by on the screen. My friend introduced me to Paul Brennan, the Globe’s head director—you know him, 1 guess—and he said 'he would give me a chance. I hung around the studio day after day, but nothing happened, and I was beginning to feel discouraged, when one of the court ladies got into a row with Brennan over sometnlng—being late. I believe—and he gave me the part. Pure luck, of course. If I hadn’t hap pened to be on the set that morning. I’d never have gotten it. He saw me standing there, and pointed his finger at me. You knew how queer and nervous he is. “'Can you act?* he shouted, as though I’d committed a erhne. “‘Certainly,* I said, trembling in my boots. “ ‘Then get into make-up, and don’t be all day about it Remember it’s costing me a hundred dollars a min ute to hold this scene lor you. "That was my start, and I’ve never forgotten it. I worked w-ith the Globe for nearly a year—worked hard, too. if 1 do say so myself. Brennan used me In four big pro ductions. hut by the end of the year I concluded there wasn’t any chance for me, there. You know how they run things at the Globe—Brennan and Julius Schwartz. “1 did a couple of pictures with the National, after that—Westerns—they took me because I knew how to ride, and then, you remember, I came with you.' ‘•Yes.’’ Tony Hull glanced smil ingly at his companions eager face. “1 ^remember very well. We were just starting that big college picture, and I needed someone who knew how to swim. How did you get to be such an athlete?” “I’m not, really. Riding, swim ming—that about lets me out. I learned them both on a farm, out in Michigan.” “Were you born there?" “Yes. At a place called Owosso. Ever hear of it?" “Never!’ “Well, you should have. It’s quite a celebrated place—boasts of having the largest coffin factory in the world. No—you’re not supposed to laugh. They couldn't well supply a more universal need.” “No—1 suppose not. Do your peo ple live out there?’ “I haven’t any people—parents, that is. My uncle and aunt raised me. until I got tired of farm life and ran away to Chicago to go on the stage. I was sixteen then, and an awful little idiot. I’d won some sort of a beauty prize, in Owosso, and thought I was going to take the world by storm. My married cousin, who lives in Chicago, had a position with one of the theaters there. We supposed, from the letters he sent hack home, that he owned it or some thing, but it turned out he sold tick ets in the box offive. Tom Darrell— that was my name, too, until I changed it, for stage purposes, to Dare—was a real friend. Got me an engagement with a show that opened thtre that spring, and ran all sum mer. I played a nurse, and had just one line—Madame. I regret to in form you that little Johnny has just i swallowed the goldfish,' but it always Drougm down me nouse- wnen me show went to New York that fall, 1 went with it- We lasted on Broad way eight weeks, but' I'd made a start. On the strength of that one line, I got a part as a frisky young flapper in *!'he Goat-Getter,’ and after that—but why bore you with the history of my life?” She laughed derisively. “Anyway, I've had con siderabie experience, and a little fun, and here I am dreaming of being an honest-to-goodness star like Alice I Carroll and having a pet Rolls-Royce and a country home on Long Island, to say nothing of a perfectly scrump tious income tax. Some dream. I'll tell the world, for a youngster who was running around in a checked apron and sunbonnet five years ago helping auntie make the cranberry jelly jell." Tony Hull gazed quizically into his companion’s clear, cool eyes. “When you do get to be a star," he said, “you can thank those years on the farm for it. They don’t make complexions like yours in town— except in drug stores, or beauty par lors. Somebody's got to take Miss Carroll’s place, before long. Why not you ?” "Then you think she’s—through?'1 "Yes—unless, as I’ve said before, she gets over the idea of playing school girls all her life. She ought to have sense enough to break away from the ingenue stuff—develop— play older parts—but she won’t. You heard what she said about ‘Knights and Knaves.’ The part of the young wife would give her the best chance she has had in her career, and yet, because it’s a society girl of twenty five, instead of a flapper of eighteen, she doesn’t want to do it. The trou ble with Alic$ is, she’s been sppoiled. She’s made too much money, and it’s turned her head. Two men on the box, and so many servant* in her Park avenue apartment they fall over each other trying to get out of each other’s way. Queer, isn’t it, that she doesn’t put ter money in the bank against the rainy day that’s bound to come—not only to her, but to all of us? Well, there’s no reason why 1 should worry about it. The latt time I tried to give her any advice, she got sore and refused to speak to me for a week.” "It's a pity. And she’s such • good actress.” "No better than you are, my dear. Who am I? What office do I hold? From what state? For what is the city of Dresden, Germany, famous? Who was known aa England's Virgin Queen?

Waskmgftoim L®ftft®ir By CHARLES P. STEWART SPEED IN RAISING ITALIAN SUB MARINE EXPLAINED BY AMER ICAN NAVY MEN WASHINGTON. Sept. 4.—With all admiration for the efficiency of the salvage workers who raised the Ital ian submarine F-14 only thirty-four hours after the vessel's loss in col lision with the destroyer Giuseppi Missori, navy department comment in Washington does not fail to empha size the fact that the Adriatic disas ter differed in many of its details from those connected with the sink ing of the American submersible 8-4 off Provincetown (Mass.i, last De cember. Naval experts naturally have been asked very pointedly why. since the Italians were able to bring the F-14 so speedily to the surface, approxi mately as good time was impossible in the case of the S-4, in which event at least a part of the latter craft’s crew would have been saved. The fact that the F-14's personnel all perished, due to the leakage of sea water into her hull and the forma tion of a suffocating gas through the mixture with sulphuric acid in her batteries, has no bearing on the tragedy of the S-4. it is pointed out. inasmuch as members of the Ameri can ship's company are known to have survived for several days after the mishap which sent her to the bot tom of the Atlantic. • • o To begin with, as American sub marine authorities sum up a com parison of the two accidents— The S-4 was on a practice cruise alone. The F-14 was taking pari, with many other ships of war. in maneu vers off the Italian naval base of Pola. Time was unavoidably lost in find ing the S-4 on the seabed, and still more was lost in bringing salvage vessels to the spot. The F-14 was located by aero planes. from above, in approximately an hour after she had been sunk and salvage equipment was at hand for an immediate start on operations. • • • The F-14 was less than ope-third the S-4’s weight and consequently required far less power to lift. The former had also gone down by the stern. That end of the hull was driven into the bot:tom of the Adriatic, but the bow inclined up ward at an angle of about 46 degrees, leaving most of the hull free—some what, as it was described, like an arrow, held fast by the point, but otherwise swaying to and fro. The passing of cables under the boat was • simple performance, un der the circumstances. The S-4 had settled so far into the ocean bed by the time divers reached her that the only method of passing chains beneath her was by a slow, difficult and dangerous process of submarine tunnelling. Even so. the suction of the oos# upon the ship’s bulk was tremendous—probably far in excess of her deadweight. • a * . , Both the Americans and the Italians had bad weather conditions to com bat. , The Italians were able, however, to mobilise an adequate number of large craft to form a ring around the pontoons engaged in the lifting opera tion, affording them considerable pro tection. The Americans had no such fleet available. The Adriatic, too. is practically without tides, which are high and erratic off the New England coast. • * • That American naval officers are not altogether satisfied with their salvage equipment, as tried out at the time of the S-4’a lots, may per haps be surmised from the fact that extensive additions ere being made to it now. That the Italians* rescue parapher nalia is not always and everywhere 1 so conveniently within reach as it happened to be in the latest instance —of the F-14—is possibly to be in ferred from the circumstance that net a trace ever has been found of their submarine Sebaatiano Veniero, lost somewhere off Sicily in August. 1926, with 60 men on board. Upon one point practically all navy men are agreed— That the safety devices so freely suggested for submarines nearly all would detract from these vessels* military serviceability and, in many cases, would actually be exceedingly dangerous In time of war. N®w Y®irk L®tte | NEW YORK. Sept. 4.—The same clannishness which is common to Americans in every country of the globe, is to be found among natives of various states and cities in New York. New York has a state so ciety for nearly every state, with native sons and daughters of this section or that meeting regularly to keen alive their native associations. Frequently groups of former resi dents of this state or that will be found gathered in one section of New York in a community much like the colonies formed by foreigners in the city. A girl radio artist from Tusca loosa who has been singing in New York radio programs was given pub licity in one of the afternoon pa pers. Within two days she heard from more than two doxen persons from Tuscaloosa, most of whom lived within a fern- blocks of each other in New York. • * • Fewer than 10 per cent of the visitors to the Woolworth tower are regular residents of New York, the manager of the tower concessions estimates. Probably that percentage goes for the rest of the New York sight* which interest visitors from other places most.
