A Definition of Casual Violations
A republican president, a republican secretary of
the treasury and a republican attorney general united
in an important change proiiosed In the laws relat
ing to federal pro enforcement. This is the recom
:n< ndation:
“Enlargement of the powers of United States
commissioners so they may try ‘casua’ and slight
offenders’ against the prohibition laws.
They had their definition ready. They asked the
federal lawmakers "to fix the penalty for casual and
slight violations at a fine of not more than $500 and
imprisonment of not more than six months In Jail, or
both, with authority for district attorneys to try ac
cused in such cases by complaint or information—
and not by indictment.''
If the casual violations recommendation is en
acted it would give federal commissioners the right
to try small oficndcrs—and it would take away the
constitutional right of trial by jury. This Is what
the recommendation made by Pres. Hoover with the
endorsement of Sec. Meilin and Atty, Gen. Mitchell
asks the congress to write into the prohibition stat
utes of the republic: “To fix the penalty at a fine
of not more than $500 and Imprisonment of not more
than six months in Jail, or both.”
Under the Fifth Amendment no one shall be held
to answer for a capital or other “Infamous crime,
unless on & presentment or indictment of a grand
iurv. I
As construed by the supreme court of toe uniiea
States, “Infamous crime” means one punishable by
imprisonment in a penitentiary or for more than one
year, or for any period, if at hard labor.
Hence, according to the Wickersham commission, j
“where imprisonment is to be in Jail, is not to ex- >
ceed six months and is not to be at hard labor, the
crime is not infamous. It is only where tnere is a
possibility of imprisonment in the penitentiary, or
for more than a year, or at hard labor that an in
dictment is required.”
In Texas al! persons convicted under the pro
visions of the Dean law are guilty of •'infamous
crimes" If arraigned in a federal court and found
guilty as charged and given a fine or jail sentence,
they are wholly innocent of the perpetration of an
Infamous crime.
Tills is a funny old world and the legal distinctions
are as queer as the lawmakers responsible for them.
There would be a uniformity of laws to say the
least There Is no fine or jail sentence to be found
In the Dean act. There is no suspended sentence
nhov«* a certain ace for the casual violator.
He goes over the road to the penitentiary for one
to five years. This Is the reason why the country
boys go to the penitentiary and the city boys are
given fines or jail sentences. If It isn't a mockerv of
Justice then name it and take it.

wheat farmers and cotton growers and sheep and mo

glancing around as if bidding every
one to pay close attention. ' Rex said
I must prove this sub isnt my

produce the real Jimmy Blair. Well,
Just listen, please:
‘‘When I was fifteen I was stricken
with apijendicitis and was operated
upon. At the time it was discovered
that my heart was on the right side
—that I was dextra hearted—that
is. my heart wasn’t on the left side,
where hearts usually are located
Six months afterwards Jimmy had
his appendix removed and strangely
enough, the doctors discovered his
heart to be on the right side too—
that is. the same as mine, not on the
I left Side. The two cases were con
sidered quite remarkable at the
time, we being twins. The doctor
who operated on us both was our
family physician. Dr. Gardner.
“Now, supposing that Dr. Gard
ner were to come here, examine this
sub of Maxwell's—that is. subject
him to an X-ray examinaion—and
find that he still possesses his ap
pendix and that his heart is not on
the right side, but on the left, where
the normal person's heart is located?
Wouldn't that prove he w-asn't James
K. Blair?”
She urned to Dr. Gordon.
‘ You ought to be able to answer
that question, Doctor Frank.” she
added, smiling at him. ‘Wouldn't it
prove my case for me?”
' I'll say it would, Pat." replied the
young doctor, with a warmth of en

look he gave her held a new ad

be any question about it. Those two
operation's, your brother’s and yours
are on record doubtless, in the hos
pial where they were performed
and a copy of them could be ob
tained and brought here by your
family doctor. He would come,
wouldn't he, if you asked him?”
"I’m sure he would!” answered the
girl, the light of a new determina
tion shining in her brown eyes. She
turned to the lieutenant. He, too,
was smiling his admiration of her in
genuous idea.
"What do you think. Hex?" she
asked. "And you, Marge?" she add
ed, smiling at the two in turn.
"I think the same as Prank!" re
plied the lieutenant, with quick
' So do I!” chimed in Margery, a
loyal enthusiasm In voice and man
ner. “How did you come to think of
such a clever tiling, dear?"
“Oh. I—'* She hesitated flushing
at the very apparent tribute that she
knew was absolutely honest. "It
really wasn't clever you know. The
thought just came to me, that's all!”
"Of course," said Dallard, reflect
ively, "we’ve got to wait until we
know just what Maxwell's game
really is before we can do anything
toward checkmating him. Tomor
row ought to give us a pretty ial*
line on the situation. I'll see the
lawyer the first thing in the morn
ing. Pat. and put your idea up to
him. And I think you’d better wire
this family doctor of yours—send
him a night message and find out
for 6ure if he'll come to New York
at once. Instruct him to get a rec
ord of the two operations and bring
them with him. If Maxwell pulls the
stunt we re looking lor tommorrow.
then our lawyer can get a stay ol
proceedings in the legacy transfer
until your doctor arrives."
He considered the group individu
ally, then collectively.
The old year had rung out and the
New Year rung in when the two
1 men donned their overcoats in pre
' par at ion for departure. Pat bade
them a final "Happy New Year” at
the foot of the stairs leading up to
her room, but Margery accompanied
them as far as the vestibule.
"I just wanted to remark in a
casual way." she told them laugh
ingly, "that the man who Is instru
mental in giving Jimmy Lack to
Pat will earn lire undying gratitude
—and love—of at least two girls—I
won't say who they are' And you
may play that," she added, in the
vernacular of the race track, as
they passed through the door, ‘as
it lies—straight across the board!"
Margery had been in love, as she
toid Pat one day. "more times than

instart her gaze had fallen on it.
When he regained consciousness
only to remain dumb, unthinking,
and the doctor had pronounced him
a victim of aphasia, a great pity had
singed up in her heart for him. And

Then had come the story oi Jim

t too. in that process of his mind's

And so, donning her pajamas and
leaving on her stockings, she went
into Pat s room to talk. The young
heiress was engaged in polishing
her blue-black hair with a pair of
military brushes.

turned. “so go ^heari—shoot, if you
