Till: LAW'S LIMITATIONS.
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
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
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
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
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.

A WORD TO DEMOCRATS.
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
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

the former prosecutor left office.
Perhaps ono reason is in the fact
of Jerome's familiarity with the pre

another is that Jerome will put more
vitriol and vindictiveness into the ef

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

practical service to us. It is only
when wo partake of bread that Us

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

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

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

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.
