ARCHBISHOP DENOUNCED UK
CALL. Archbishop Ireland, In speaking at
the Grant celebration, denounced the
recall of judges and judicial decisions
In the strongest terms.
On the political problem the Arch
bishop declared that tho main ques
tion was how are the people to gov
ern, whether directly or through
representatives, acting under consti
tutional limitations. He sketched the
framing of the constitution, and said
"Stability of constitution and law
is the vital condition of social order,
of continuous economic progress.
What becomes of this stability when
a small percentage of voters may at
their caprice suspend decrees of legis
latures, call for alterations' in exist
ing laws, propose as projects of law
their wants and fancies? It is the
road to social revolution. Into it we
may at any moment he cast by a
small minority of the people often
the precise minority which least de
serves the protective hand of govern
ment." TO SAVE FAMILIES FIRST.
The unwritten law of the seas,
"Women and children first," as ob
served in the Titanic tragedy, is
wrong, according to Mrs. Donald H.
Hooker, prominent in society and
women's club circles of Baltimore.
Mrs. Hooker said:
"I bolleve it is just as Important to
savo a man as a woman, and so the
law of the sea, 'Women and children
first,' is not applicable, at least until
the unity of the family has been pre
served. No other arrangement Is
durable until the last whole family
has been saved or decided to die to
gether, then tho question of chivalry
may give preference to the woman,
though the question is so great that
no one has a right to say. Tickets
should be issued to each passenger
taking passage, assigning thorn to a
certain lifeboat in families, as they
purchase their passage.. Then in the
moment of disaster families should
be sent Into the boats together."
In view of tho fact that only one
woman on tho Titanic declined to
take advantage of tho prerogative
accorded her sex, it is doubtful If a
very large per cent, of women will
agree with Mrs. Hooker.
It Is said tho Stat Dairy and
Food Commissioner expects to make
Ohio a hot place for food adulterers
and short weight dealers, but so
many bluffs have been made along
this lino that wo expect tho adulter
ations and short weights will, like
the brook, "go oni and on, forever."
In Wood county we have an official
appointed to look after the weights
and measures, but nothing haB been
heard of him sinco he was appointed.
A law was passed requiring vege
tables to be sold by weight, but no
body has been ablo to purchase any
thing in that manner. Who knows
If thero are any inaccurate scales In
Wood county? Nobody! Who knows
anything about tho enforcement of
the lawB pertaining to pure food and
dairy products In Wood county? No
body! What's? tho ubo of enacting
such Jaws If they are not to bo en
forced? William Jennings Dryan, three
times candidate for President, will

Forty nine years of attendanco in

Tho strange race was located in
Victoria Land, north of Capo Bexley.
Ono theory of their origin is that
they may bo descendants of an an
cient Icelandic colony from Green
land. Of unusual interest is the fact
that the natives bear names that can
bo translated Into English, suggesting
that survivors of tho Franklin expedi
tion may havo lived among them.
They havo some Scandinavian char
acteristics and aro different from any
other American aborigines. Two of
them wore beards of a reddish color
and all had light eyebrows. Nothing
learned from them Indicated that tho
race as it exists today had ever seen
a white man.
The courier who first went forward
to parley with them almost lost his
life, when a native attacked him with
a knife. Friendly advances were Anal
ly successful, and by means of the
sign language and tho assistanco of
native guides communication was held.

A drama of exceptional strength

fered Toledoans by the Hackett com
pany at the Lyceum next week,
starting Sunday night. This will be
the llrst showing of this play in To

pieco Is mental telepathy, tho com
munication of thoughts from one
mind to another. The principal
character Is a highly intellectua..
man, John Brookfleld, a gambler,
who, on the development of the plot,
finds himself to bo possessed of ex
traordinary hypnotic power. That
faculty he exercises upon a jury on
gaged in the trial of a youth, who in
a sudden frenzy of inherited aver
sion to a cat's eye Jewel, has killed
a man for obtruding that offensive
jem upon his notice. Brookfleld,
likewise through the medium of tho
press, Inflames tho public mind
against the prosecuting attorney in
that trial and it is intimated that
tho jury is hypnotically impressed
by the transference of thought from
the community. Tho young man, at
any rate, is acquitted. Tho discred
ited prosecutor thereupon tries to
murder Brookfleld but that gifted
man's hypnotic power serves to pro
Mr. Norman Hackett in the role
of John Brookflold will be seen to
