An Indianapolis editor, !• red L. Purdy,
was sent to jail recently and mulcted
in the sum of to boot. The charge
was contempt of thecouitin which the
criminal judge who sentenced him pre-

indicted for political activity. allien
one grand jury failed to indict the chibf
other jurors were called. After thus
"packing the jury," as Purdy's paper
alleged, the chief was at length indicted,
but afterward the indictment was set
aside as null and void.
Ernest Bross, editor of the Stir, was
before the same grand jury that ended
in the Purdy trouble. Bross is known
on the coast, having formerly been edi
tor of the Oregonian.
The unpleasant tangle arose shortly
after the recent republican convention,
in which Alford, the judge who sen
tenced Purdy, was defeated. Purdy's
paper, the Sun, has opposed his re-elec
tion in a sane and effective inauner that
eeems to have left a sore in the judicial
Of course the matter will not worry
Purdy very much, even if lie has to
serve the sentence, but it should give
tlie public a number of moments of sol
emn thought. Has the time come in
this country when a newspaper cannot
criticise a court?
Lately there has been what almost
amounts to a general and concerted
movement among politicians to curb the
freedom of the press. Legislatures, fear
ing exposures, have adopted laws wholly
contrary to the American idea of popular
government, freedom of speech, religious
affiliations and the press, and in certain
sections judges, goaded by unfriendly
criticism, have contrived various means
of striking their enemies. It is true that

to act, but it is most unusual that drastic
action is justifiable against reputable
newspapers, yet such action is not un

unfair things have lately been said,

has never done better service than it is

"The Hesitation of Ciisella," by Edith
Macvane, is the title of the novelette
wLich opens the June number of The
Smart Set. It is a charming Btory, the
scenes of which are laid in France; the
period, however, is modern and the story
is of an appealing character which will
win for it many admirers.

Of Pour Daring Aerialists Secured by
Norris & Rowe.
One of the most attractive and endur
ing features under the white tents of a
circus arena is that of the aerial bar per
formers. Even when the horizontal bar
act is performed upon the ground it holds
the undivided attention of the audience,
but when these same horizontal bars are
placed high in the air and the same diffi
cult and dangerous feats are accom
plished, then the act becomes of more
absorbing interest. Norris & Rowe, by
long experience realized the value of
having the most skillful and renowned
artists that could be engaged to perform
this act, and so when tbey had the op
portunity of engaging the Pour Picard
Troupe they quickly grasped it and ac
ceded lo the demands of the large salary
asked. That their judgment in the
selection was good, is evidenced by the
praise of newspaper critics and the thun
derous applause that greets the act in
every city played. The clean lim'bed,
graceful acrobats, flying through space
and accomplishing seemingly incredible
eatß upon the elevated bars is most
atscinating. In conjunction with the
great host of other acts, Norris & Rowe
will present the Four Picard Crotheis
here Thursday, May 31.
