Free speech is, of course, a safeguard to liberty. But
free speech is sometimes confused with public speech and
with a loss of the sense of propriety. James H. Maurer,
president of the Pennsylvania State Federation of Labor,
m the Washington Irving high school, New York, deliv
ered a vigorous speech, which involved the state constabu
lary quarrels in Pennsylvania, class misunderstanding,
preparedness and the American flag. The next morning
several of the leading papers, including the Times, quoted
Maurer as saying: "To hell with the Stars and Stripes."
There was naturally a feeling of indignation that a
public school platform should be abused in this manner.
It was taken for granted that Maurer had been correctly
quoted. Mayor Mitcliel felt that the matter was serious
enough to require investigation. At a closed hearing, con
ducted by the president of the hoard of education, twelve
witnesses were questioned, including two reporters. One
reporter—from the Times—reiterated his statement.
The other wavered. Among the remaining ten there was
sufficient doubt, in the opinion of the examiner, to exon
erate Maurer from the offense of direct utterance. That
is, the speakei', although he might have used the words,
or their equivalent, did so by quotation, the original ex
pression being attributed by Maurer to a member of the
Pennsylvania constabulary. According to his own admis
sion, however, Maurer, later in his speech, used the fol
lowing language: "When these preparedness folks ask
where my patriotism stands in the face of the story I just
told you, I felt like telling them to go to hell.
The incident ought to supply a double warning. The
Pennsylvania labor leader, on his own statement, made
use of words not tending to smooth the way of the Penn
sylvania federation, or establish harmony between the
federation and the state police. He was guilty of impro
priety, at least, in dragging into a sectional labor contro
versy the subject of national defense, and consequently he
risked the danger of misquotation. On the other hand, it
is of the utmost importance that all speech in public,
whether legitimately "free," or unpatriotieally violent,
be correctly quoted. Justice to the speaker, whether agi
tator, educator or minister, demands correct representa
tion. But deeper yet lies the demand for protecting true
KEEP AN EYE ON SILVER.
Have you followed the recent rise in the price of sil
ver^ In the past year about 10 cents an ounce. Who is
buying silver and advancing the price? Certainly not the
United States. Circumstances abroad, where in two years
a debt of thirty billions of dollars has been incurred by
the allied nations, may throw some light on this interest
Europe is hopelessly bankrupt aud the day of settle
ment can be somewhat mollified if the debtors can pay in
a depreciated currency. A long step in this direction
would be the remonetization of silver. When John Bull
was a creditor of the whole earth gold was all he wanted,
but John Bull as a debtor is a different matter, and he
would be glad to pay in silver, the only means in fact by
which the enormous debt can ever be paid.
Now here is the prediction: After the war is over the
allies will remonetize silver. They are the buyers now.
This alone will create a new value to all the silver on
earth, at least five thousand million dollars toward paying
their debt. In addition it will give a new purchasing
power to the silver countries of Asia, Africa and South
America. Ocean freights will all be in the power of the
allies, and arranged for their convenience and profit.
Trade destroyed by the war will be built up by giving
foreign countries a new power to purchase.
And where will Uncle Sam be? He will as usual come
in at the tail end of the procession and shape his finances
at the dictation of Europe. He will humbly accept his ad
vances on account of the *war in silver at $1 an ounce,
which he is now selling to these sharp gentlemen at 60
Look out then for silver at a dollar an ounce. Look out
for a trade combination against Uncle Sam that will put'
Ms foreign business in great jeopardy. And watch Johnny
Bull advocate the silver rehabilitation as the salvation of
a ruined world, of which he will be the unselfish leader.
Sugar is steadily going up in price, so that the world
presently may have to take its adversity unsweetened.
Ain't it awful Mjabel?
THE CULTURED YOUNG WIFE SUFFERS BECAUSE ANOTHER WOM
AN HAS A HAT LIKE HERS.
"What do you think? My milliner
made another hat exactly like mine
and sold it!" Bertha Folsom's eyes
blazed with anger.
"It certainly was very careless of
her," remarked her husband with a
. straight face.
"Careless! It was

someone else wear
ing a hat like mine.

graphed his approval of the Joke, but
Bertha, intent on her grievance, did not
see the point.
"Why Is It such a calamity for a
woman to wear a hat like someone
else's when hundreds of men's hats are
made on the same model and not one
of them suffers because of it?" asked
the old man whimsically.
"Women's hats should be exclusive
unless they wish to belong to the
common herd," replied Bertha. "Men's
clothing is classy because of the work
manship of the tailor, or the manufac
turer in the case of hats."
"How arbitrary the dictates of fash
ion are." Mrs. Folsom remarked.
Bertha looked at her with an expres
sion that said: "Much you know
about styles." Mrs. Folsom

An anecd >te Illustrating the mis
placed earnestness of a serious school
boy was recently related by Weedon
Grossmith. As a question in arith
metic, a facetious inspector who was
visiting a school propounded the fol
lowing: "If a cat fell into a bottom
less pit and climbed up two feet for
every three it fell, how long would
it take to get out?" The majority of
the scholars sat silent, with & puzzled
air, but one boy set to work assidu
ously and began to cover his slate with
calculations. The inspector noticed this,
and at length said:
"Here! Stop that! Haven't you
the sense to see that the cat couldn't
possibly get out?"
"Oh, yes, he could, sir!" replied the
boy brightly. "If you'll only give me
time I'll bring him out in Australia!"
The afternoon at the new neighbor's
had passed very pleasantly. James,
Jr., cried when told that It was time
to go home.
"Never mind," said the lady consol
ingly. "You can come again."
"It ain't that," said James, Jr., "It's
the walloping 1 am going to get from
Henry. When I get home he'll say
'Halves,' and If I have to tell him that
you didn't give me anything he will
think I'm telling a story and punch my
head for it."

"Wasn't the workmanship of both
the hats in question all that could be
desired?" persisted the old man.
"Oh, I suppose so." Bertha seemed
at a loss how to answer. "It Is differ
ent with women's clothes."
"How different?" he persisted.
"It Is the way they do," answered
"Who are 'they' that decide what
kind of a hat you shall wear," laughed
the old man.
"The same they' who dictate to you
that you must wear a collar," retort

Last Seven Days of Jesus
Jesus the Sleeper.
Through the dark and silent night
'Till the early Sabbath light
Moon and stars ihetr vigil keep
O'er their Maker, there asleep
Darkhess, solitude are there.
Covering His face, so fair.
Softly there His body rests
As the birds in downy nests.
Heavy cross and thorny crown
Press no more. His body down.
Rests the Savior's form so dear.
Safe from sword and cruel spear.
Sabbath dawns from night's deep gloom
Sunshine watches o'er His tomb
'Till the night, so calm and deep
Comes o'er Him, her watch to keep.
Starry eves watch Him (hey love
Watch Him from the clouds above,
Watch His form within the tomb,
Through two nights of awful gloom,
Nights all dark with deepest woo,
IVith the Savior lying low
Sorrow to His chosen band
Seeing not His guiding hand
Where is now His kingly right''
Where their earthly hopes so bright?.
He the sleeper! Where is He?
From gfim death can He get free?
