U4 MIX fMn >»i nn> Young Roosevelt Fallows Father's * Chicago Example CHICAGO.—CoIoneI Theodiuv Roosevelt, jr., emulating the example set by his father, has canceled his engage ment to speak at the Hamilton club, in Chi cago, because Mayor WiJliam Hale Thomp son was also on the pro gram. The younger Roosevelt declared he could not speak at Chi cago on political mat ters unless he felt free to say what he thought about Thompson. The Chicago mayor had tak en a pro-German atti tude before the actual declaration of war. • A few years ago The odore Roosevelt, former president of the U. S., refused to attend an af fair in Chicago because William Lorimer, U. S. senator, accused and convicted in the senate of obtaining his seat by a corruption fund, was also a guest.

If Theodore Roosevelt, former president of the United States, were alive today, what would he have said about renominating Wesley L. Jones on the re publican ticket for United States senator? Could he have tolerated him? Republicans of this state may well consider this. What would Roosevelt have had to say about any senator who rose to the defense of the kaiser when we were on the brink of war? If HE had called him traitor in 1917, would he to dav be supporting him? Whatever may have been Roosevelt's faults, hypoc risy was not one. Roosevelt would not, could not, have accepted Jones under these circumstances any more than he could have accepted 'William Lorimer, whom he denounced as a corruptionist. Lorimer, you remember, was accused of purchasing his seat in the United States senate. He was cenvicC ad, too, by the United States senate, and his seat was declared vacated. But Senator Jones voted for Lorimer. He voted for the corruptionist If Roosevelt wouldn't attend a republican luncheon because Lorimer was a guest would he a re publican, countenance the re-election of a senator who not only voted for Lorimer, but went further, and indorsed the kaiser? If Roosevelt were alive today, you may be sure that he would REMEMBER JONES. The plea for commutation of the death sentence oi Roy VSolff, 17-year-old murderer, is "based on mere sentiment," declares J. K. Dorsey, district attorney of Kern county, California. He urges that Wolff be hanged on October 22. The Star doubts whether hanging Wolff wilL improve his character, or whether it will prevent future, murders, any more than the hanging of other youthful criminkls pre vented Wolff from killing Greer. The Star believes it is wiser, sometimes, to abide by "mere sentiment" than by the cold-blood«d, near-sighted justice that seeks to revenge one murder by committiM a second—for killing is murder, whether done legally or illegally. "Mere sentiment" has altered the destinies of nations. "Mere sentiment" prompted Queen Isabella to sell her jewels, and enabled Columbus to discover America^ "Mere sentiment" brought the adventure-loving Lafay ette to America when the colonics were facing defeat in their fight for indpendenc. "Mere senfiment" caused Harriet Beecher Stowe to write "Uncle Tom's Cabin," which helped to abolish slavery. "Mere sentiment" is the spark that ignites reason and spurs it on to add new milestones on the road of human progress.

The airs of these four states all stimulate libidinous desire and are injurious to virtue." If not Jazz. what else falls in with the description?
