It la of course rortta 11- that tho revolting story of t lit Diu' whiteslave- trial and tho fearful Incidents that caused it have to ), printed In tho newspapers. And yet out of it, Sood must como. Ilecause it has horn a story of un usual Importance the case has In come widely known and to every irl it car ries a word of warning and a promise of protection from the strong arm of tho federal government. And to every weak and tempted man it holds out the threat of punishment. To those who thought this white slavo law was simply aimed at an out cast class with whom thvy could have no possible, connection, the stat ute -has assumed new importance. Written law has become actual and vital, it is part of the work of pub licity that justifies that axiom of tho law that "ignorance of the law ex cuses no one." No c:;e can plead ig norance after this revelation of the sctpo and meaning of the Mann act. And yet the law Is shown to have some vital limitations, limitations that only the state governments can correct. Had Disss and Caminetti taken their two victims to I-os Angles in stead of Reno, no federal statute would have been violated, and if con victed at all '.n the state courts, the limit of punishment for them would have been perhaps six months In the county jail. Now its far as the morality of the care is concerned, there is not one whit of difference between the act I cornmltted at Reno and tho same act committed at Los Angeles. Tho dif ference in the punishment lies in the fact that the United States can take action only when more than one ctato is involved in tho proceeding. Inside the borders of a single state it 13 helpless. In other words congress has seen farther, has taken a more advanced position that have any of the sepa rate states. This condition only the states themselves can correct. One other criticism was made of the Mann act during the Disgs trial, that tho law was aimed at real whito flavers. men who make a business of capturing girls and selling them for gain. Disss and Caminetti, of course, were not in this sense white slavers. They were simply vicious, nasty, im moral youths. N3 one has charged that they Intended to make any pecu niary profit from their relations with thir victims. They were simply try ing to slough off a responsibility that had grown irksome and danger ous. However, it is Impossible to feel any sympathy with the two men on this specious argument. They richly deserve what they got. .Most good people will rather rejoice that the federal statutes were so drawn that surh men could be if not amply pun ished, at least severely so. Rut the law should be re-inforced " by the states to the end that real white slavers, who are now careful to keep their operations within tho state line mny he. as summarily dealt with as those two men will doubtless be. Till: AMERICAN SPIRIT. The American spirit of patriotism rose superior to the note of jingoism sounded by en. Penrose. Republicans. progressives and democrats met the situation with an inspiring pledge of faith and loyalty to the president in his policy of veacc toward Mexico. Counting out the jingoes of the Penrose type American sentiment is solidly behind Pres. Wilson's policy. NTho American people believe pres. Wilson is right in his position that the Huerta government is not worthy of recognition anil they fully approve of his plan of peaceful intervention. Tho United States will refuse to be bluffed or cajoled into recognition founded on assassination. Huerta may as well save his strength. Nor will the Fnited States use its strong arm except under extreme provoca tion. The American people want peace on the western hemisphere and they will exhaust every peaceful means of securing it bt fore resorting to force. In this episode we are not only thrilled by the facility with which par tisan leaders forget their partisanship and exalt their patriotism, but rati fied by the patience and steadiness of purpose exhibited by Pre.-. Wilson under trying circumstances. Com pelled to relieve himself of the ser vices of a public servant who used his opportunities to defeat tin- just and amicable ends of the administra tion the president lias displayed the .strength and wisdom of convictions which must eventually have the de sired Influence on the distressing sit uation in Mexico.

Democrats will have no occasion to ?-ro to the polls today. If there arc any who did not vote at the demo cratic primary An?. 6 they may safely rest in the verdict of the majority of the six thousand who did exercise their privilege on that day. The primary today is for those members of other parties who hope to defeat the democratic party by com bining under the head of a so-called citizens' movement. No true democrat can have any sympathy with a movement based on false and unjust aspersions cast upon his own party and designed to set up a machine for the control of public affairs by a small combination of in terests. The democrat who has an interest in the welfare of his party and faith in its principles, which demand govern- ment by the people will betray his party and stultify himself by going' to the polls today. The democrat who allies himself with this so-called citizens' movement will be debarred from coming in later and protesting his loyalty to the prin ciples of true democracy as exempli fied in the wise and beneficient admin istration of Pres. Wilson. He will be convicted by his own in consistency. From the material from which the so-called citizens ticket must be se- lected todav it will be imnossible to choose candidates in any way superior! to those nominated by the democratic party on Aug. 6. In a number of respects the ticket nominated today must be inferior to that nominated by the democrats, and in addition It will be handicapped by the forced character of the movement behind it and the selfish and insidious motives which prompted it. This is a good day for democrats to stay away from the polls. JFROMFS MKAL TICK FT. It was to be expected. William Travers Jerome is to get some more fat fees from the state of New York to try to keep Harry Thaw in Matter -wan. Thaw has been a pretty faith ful meal ticket for Jerome ever since the former prosecutor left office. Perhaps ono reason is in the fact of Jerome's familiarity with the pre vious history of the case. Perhaps another is that Jerome will put more vitriol and vindictiveness into the ef fort of trying to keep Thaw locked up that most anyone else in tho ftat Maybe Jerome, after all the harsh things he has said about Thaw in different trials, would rather that the famous prisoner should not be at i IV.

He said to unreasonable that the ex-prostecutor . hls disc!pk.Sf M noj?h ,s moat jn should feel safer with a big stone i wall and some iron bars between him self and the man he has fought so often. It will be impossible from the ma terial on hand for the so-called citi zens' primary to nominate as good a ticket as the democrats offer to the voters of South Rend. Col. Mulhall is working harder and getting less pay than ever before in his life, barring the satisfaction he derives in soaking his former partners in corruption. Harry Thaw is having one of the times of his life. He seems to have planned his escape to feed his ap petite for excitement. Mr. Happ's personality rattles noisily in his expansive public utter ances. Like the Tribune he has not learned the discretion of silence. It is worth remembering that tho progress made by South Rend in pub lic improvements was made under democratic administrations. The welfare of the city should not be trusted to those who are known to be seeking their selfish ends. The true citizen is governed by his! principles, not by the policy of a self seeking ring. The industry of swatting tlics has become of the most useful and prosperous in the country. Just now New York has all the seeming of a hydra-headed monster.

ClirM to the M)til is wliat bread l to the boy. Bread is a staple arti cle of food; it Is nourishing", it gives us strength, it really stands in the place of life, or becomes life to us as without it we should soon cease to live. This is precisely what Christ Is to us, or at least it is a faint-representation of what he is to our souls. Without him we have no spiritual life and. If we had, we could not sustain it without constantly feeding upon him who is the bread of life. Whatever spiritual strength we may have be comes weakness except we constantly feed upon Christ in our hearts by faith. Just as God has conditioned the perpetuation of our physical life and strength on partaking of food, just so our perpetual life and strength are only perpetuated by feeding con stantly on the Son of God. We must keep in constant fellowship with Je sus, commune with him, love him, realize our dependence upon him, and thus we shall have the strength of a giant and the wisdom of the ages. We shall then be enabled to perform the work of life and successfully solve its problems. II. Wo must cat bread In order to be nourished with it. Bread which is not eaten in ineffectual and of no practical service to us. It is only when wo partake of bread that Us strength is imparted to us. If there fore, we will but satisfy our natural hunger by feeding upon bread, God, through his wonderful processes of nature, will do the rest. He will transmute the bread into blood, mus cle, nerves and flesh and all the strength of the staff of life becomes human energy. In a like manner we must feed upon Christ by faith so that he may be transmuted Into our spirit ual natures. Only by feeding upoi hIm can take on nis nature hi. love, his goodness, his wisdom, and his strength, for all these are ours )hen constantly feed upon him. win M.ai iis.sues pariaKe more or less of the nature of the food which we eat and this isprecisely the case with our spiritual life; if we feed up on any spiritual food other than Christ our spiritual strength becomes weak, even when we do not lose it al together. Jesus is the only bread suited to us, if we feed upon him, we "U1 "i' y on im.rai aueii.mii, we nave spiritual exaiiaiion and we become unselfish. We are able to accomplish our work and mission in life only as we feed upon Jesus the oread of life III. Wo all need Rread Dally with every meal. There is no other article of food so useful, containing so much nourishment, or which is more neces sary than bread. It is about the only thing, in the way of food, that is found upon every table at every meal. When we get off our appetite and can eat nothing else, bread generally ap peals to us; when we are hungry and crave food, there is nothincr which wo more enjoy, and which does us more good than bread. There is no other article of human diet which Jesus could have so appropriately used to represent himself and the" relation which ho bears to the sustenance of our immortal spirits. We need Christ at every stage of life. When we are ' nppy our joy is increased by having : i ti sbare it with us; when we are ad v. e never fail to get out of the experience more gladness than sad ness, when Christ is in our hearts. When we have plenty of friends Christ In the company adds greatly to the help which we receive jTrom such companionship, but when we are friendless and surrounded by enemies, if we have Christ, no weapon that may be formed against us can hurt us. We need Christ in our homes, in our workshops and offices, we need him In our pleasures, we need him in all our thinking and doing, and by con stantly depending upon him we never lack any good thing. deed, and mv blood 1 d rink indord ' At this saying many were offended and left him, but what he said Is as literally true as any material figure of speech can be when used to illustrate spiritual truth. The illustration of the flesh and blood of Jesus was used by him to convey the thought that as flesh and blood is essential to. physical life, so he is essential to spiritual life. It is by believing in him that our fouIs are first sa)'l. Tt is stated that there is no other name given under heaven or among men whereby we can be saved. Jesus is the only meditator between God and man; he is tho at-one-mnt between Him and us; he connects man and his Maker; draws them together, causes them to clasp each other's hand and reconciles the son to his loving Father. It is in this sense that Jesus is the bread of life; it is only through him that we can receive spir itual life, and by him our spiritual life is continued. FATHER PUTS END TO LOVE'S YOUNG DREAM Man Who Comes to Claim His Bride Meets the Parent Instead. Special to The News-Timci;. LAPOUTE, Ind., Aug. 23. His head bandaged and one eye swelled almost shut.

Sunday is the only day the average man has to enjoy uninterruptedly the societv of his family, and how much, we ask, would he get out of that so ciety if compelled to eat a warmed up dinner? It is in the consumption of a good dinner that the best traits of .human nature find their best development. Man, like other animals, is most-amiable when well fed. WHILE at the women reformers why not complete the job? Here are a lot of clubs passing resolutions that "the styles of -women's dress made by manufacturers and sold by merchants are such as merit criticism from the educated and cultured wom'?n of the country". Yet there is a conspicuous absence of hih browed women who do not wear these styles of dress and look attractive in them. The princi pal exceptions are the short haired women who wear mannish coats, full skirts and but never mind about that or those. IT took 50,000 Missourians to pull their state out of the mud.
