The Scope of tlhe Pre... It was "Junius" who in hi, pro logue to the English people' dIclIart i that "the press is the paIlladim li ,1 Liberty," but there should be nI, misconception in tlhe intrjl,el, taIl n of this patriotic pronil unc(lllmltc In :. The press, unlike individuals,, may indulge in a scope or lalltude ii I' potintg news, or in etlitcri;a Or general coeiilntls whicth isi irciui scribed only by the w.eII detliwd pir, cepts of law. There is a limitless differnee .o' twer n the liberty of the pr.es and the license of the press. The press which is lic'entliouis and reckless, which is malignant and slanderous, which wuld dl'fam' and destroy enterprises or wo;uld blast character, can have no stand ing in a community of self-res;lect ing law-abiding citizens, and is fully liable in law. The press, applied in the silogular sense, the newspaper that is dan derous or libelous, is not only amen able to law, but the author of the slander or the libel, or the respon-d sible man of the concern may ber held to a personal account. But if-the newspaper be liable for such offendings, which is of very rare occurrence, the newspaper must also be pretected from legal proceedings for damages on allega tioe., having no basis for equity. For illustration: The ShreveporT Times has been cited into court to defend itself against a claim of $5,000 instigated by Detective J. G. Addington, for alleged defamation of his character, arising from a news report in which he was daubed "a fly cop" and "a bonehead." It may be conceded that such cogno men are not classically edifying, but as slang, suggested in a spirit of jocularity, are common expressions among ball players andosports and have no special significance of dis eredit, unless so construed by the individual concerned whether he be a policeman, a detective or an of Aeer of the law, a. sport or a citizen who by any of his public acts may draw this criticism upon himself. The contention which led to this proceeding to recover $5,000 as a solace to the feelings of this detec tive, arose in his arrest of J. C. Wal lit at the Inn Hotel without a war rant, and also the arrest without a warrant of S. W. Tullos, the man ager of the Inn, whose only offense was in remonstrating against the arrest of Wallis while on his own premises, without authority of law. This action of itself was an out rage which can not be defended rea sonably. The law is plain: Except in a case of felony, or on witnessing the crim iasl set, it is essential that a war rant shall be procured to make the arrest of the person charged with the offense, especially if it be in the order of a misdemeanor. In the trail of this case it was de veloped that one of the customs at police headquarters of long ng is to arrest and hold in the loty jail, on a charge of being a fugitive from justice, of any person may be suspected of crime, and after the unfortunate, frequently w$thout friends or means, has been held in durance vile several days he i released with an apology as an explanation of such illegal and un warranted arrest. This proceeding was conducted -ith marked ability by Hon. W. H. 8lheen for the plaintiff and Hon. Lson t. Smith for the Times, and the jury, after having heard the able pharge by Judge Bell, returned averdict for the defendant. This verdict by ten of the jury Was not unexpected. It was respon sive to the issue involved in the ease. Two of the jurors favored a stoney compensation, one for $50 a.d the other for $25, but such a verdict would have had the effect of Snarpraging such legal proceedings ao~ the part of any one taking of .-e at any news report or editorial gferenee in any of the newspapers aeirp vsport. In this contention there was in lslved the vital liberty of the press. ded, a pres muialed in its ap te.-ioa Of.i suit. for damages, rlebabl Iocareetation of its wa.id.M epr~lter in jail for giv tot feats, would Mfllify S.the-. .

Overmran of North Carolina, chairman of the special sen ate committee appointed to investigate President Wilson's statement that a "numerous, industrious and insidious lobby" was hampering tariff legisla tion, is one of the most influential mem bers of the upper house. In the course of remarks made be fore issuing his statement President Wilson said that Washington was full of representatives of special interests and that a brick couldn't be thrown without hitting one of them. A native of North Carolina, fifty-nine years old, Mr. Overman has had ten years' experiegge in the senate. He is chairman of the committee on rules and a member of the judiciary and ap propriations committees. Before going to the national senate he was five times d member of the state legisla ture, serving one term as speaker. In 1895 he was the choice of the Demo cratic caucus for United States Ona tor, but was defeated in the legislature by a combination of Republicans and Populists. He was elected in 1903 and re-elected in 1909. Senator Overman is a lawyer by profession. West Virginia Strike Inquiry. The investigation of conditions in the Paint Creek coal mining district of West Virginia by the United States senate is being conducted by a sub committee of the committee on educa tion and labor. Senator Claude A. Swanson of Virginia is chairman, and Senators Martine of New Jersey, Shields of Texnssee, Borah i Idaho and Kenyon of Towa make up the com mittee. Peonage, the failure to maintain a constitutional form of government and every feature of the situation will be included in the search for actual facts. The investigation will be the second the history of the nation, so far as Photo by American Press AmeoetteSm. CLAJUD A. sNwSO.t. senators have shown in debate, to be made of the acts of a state by a legis lative branch of the federal govern ment. The strike in the Coeur d'Alene mining region in Idaho was investigat ed by a house committee in 1900. Senator Claude A. Swanson, who heads the investigators, is a native of Virginia and was graduated in law from the University of Virginia. He served six full terms as a member of the national house of representative.s, resigning his seat during his seventh term to become governor of his native state. He was appointed to the Unit fed .-. s emstme to fill the vacaacy ANNt.i n a b .t A rk tea.hr1I IN THE WORLD OF SPORT How Kolehmainen, Finnish Runner, Trains. . . . Y.. at \ f I Photo by American Press Association. This is how Hines Kolehmainen of Finland, the champion amateur run ner, goes about keeping himself in trim: Eats no meats. Cooks his own meals. Arises at 6 o'clock and walks two hours. Goes to work and sticks till 3 o'clock. Runs a couple of miles. Keeps his ,auscles always warm. Has careful massage according to his own scheme. Wears woman's stockings up to his thighs on cold days. Gets to bed early and sleeps. A Family of Ball Players. Rivaling the famous Kentucky Gillam family baseball team is the team that represents the thriving Maryland town of Barton, for here, too, all the players are brothers, and the aggregation is managed by the father of the nine, William J. Metz. For several years, ever since the youngest member, Charles R., was able to handle a bat and throw a ball across a diamond, the Mets boys have been playing together, and with such success that they have cleaned up nines from rival towns in their vicinity with unbroken success. Henry, the pitcher, has twirled with such ability that he has been approach ed by scouts for professional clubs; but. like the rest of the family, he plays ball because he enjoys the sport, and he has rejected all offers to tigure .in swifter company. Joe Wood Is Modest. Though there is a division of opinion among the fans as to who is the great er pitcher, Joe Wood or Walter John son, ball players who have batted against both of the speed marvels in sist that Johnson Is Wood's master. Wood himself concedes that Johnson has something on him. He points to the fact that Walter is much taller and has longer arms, which give him more speed, and he also realizes the fact that Johnson, when pitching, is under no apparent strain. Wood, by the way, has failed to show any of last year's form this season, and it is questionable whether he will be right for some time yet. France Takes Up Athletics. The development of sport and athlet ics may shortly be taken under the di rect supervision of the French govern ment, the idea being that physical training of the rising generation is quite as important to the nation as art or railways and that it is in accord with the new spirit of progress in France. The French cabinet, it is understood, has under consideration the question of asking parliament to create an un dersecretary of state who shall be at tachbed to the ministry of labor and whose duties will be solely to look aft er sporting affairs. Pitoher Leonard Has New Alibi. Leonard, the new southpaw pitcher of the Red Sox. pulled a new one re cently when he was getting wild. HIe threw his glove to the bench, and a new one was given him. That is a new alibi. It was the fault of the glovs. Washington Has Youngest Player. Young Acosta is only sixteen years old, but bha signed with Clark Grif tlh manager of the Senators.

Washing Blankets. To wash blankets, quilts and com forfers choose a w\arml siuniy day. so that they will dry as quickly as Ipos sible. UIse soft water if it can hle olh tained. W\oolen Idanlkts slihould be washed in Iliukwanirl wiater., nlever in hot or cold wa!tcr, as it shrinks t!hem I'se good white soap or some reliable woolen soap. Put the idanklt. at.1 so:ak for fifteen minutes in warm water. :soaping the blanket as it is p,,t in the tub, putting on a little extra soap where the ldanket is most soiled. After allowing to soak work the ilan ket around in the tub, ruliing Ih tween the hanids and applying more soap where needed. Souse the blanket several times and wring itllo alnother warm water, goiln over the Ida'nket to see if any soiled places have been missed. Rinse a second time. wring ing the blanket as free from w:atr .s Ipssible. Shake well ,efor'e han-illg up tp dry.

Uses For Old Pillowslips. Pillowslips that are worn at the edges can be cut off and hemmed for shorter slips to use on s:nall'r pillows. If there are no smaller pillows the old slips can he rehemmed and then length ened with a band of insertion, the width of the hem cut off, set in. When hemstitched Ihems on pillowcases and sheets wear they can be cut off, and hems can be stitched on by machine. Drawn worked linen that has become worn can be made to do longer service if the worn drawn work is covered with strips of insertion and the worn part is then cut away beneath the in sertion. Cleaning Paint. The easiest and quickest way of cleaning paint is to have two pails of water, one cold, to which a tablespoon ful of amnionia has been added, and one hot, with the addition of a little ammonia and soap powder. With a soft flannel wash the paint with the ,soapy water, then rinse with the cold water, using a wash leather Instead of the flannel, and wring the leather fair ly dry. Paint washed like this dries with a nice po)lish, which no amount of drying with cloths and using hot water alone will impart. To Remove Wall Paper. A good way to remove old wall paper is to use the following -olution: A thick pasty solution shou!h'be made by adding flour and a few spoonfuls of salt Into boiling water. After this is made add a few ounces of acetic acid, which may be purchased at any drug store. This pasty solution should be applied with a brush to the old wall paper in quantities. After a few min utes the old paper can be removed in great strips very easily and with very little dust or dirt. Driving Ants Away. The host way to gt rid of the tron blesome little ants that haunt the safe and kitchen canlinet is to follow the lit tle soldiers as in line they march away laden with supplies. Sonmewhere near the house you will find their headquarters. When you get the!! lo eated get a kettle of lolling water and scald them out. Yon will not he biotli ered any more unless another li-dl of them locates near yeaour kitchen, in which case all you have to do is to re pest your tactics. FOR THE CHILDREN Fast and Slow. M:v let.

How Romp Paid For His Meat. There was once a dog who used to go to market with his master every morning. lie was always given a cent to buy meat for himself. If the butcher took the money be fore he gave him the meat the dog would growl and show his teeth. One day the master was called away on business and was gone for several days. On his return he told Romp to bring him his slippers. Romp did not obey, but slunk into a corner, and the slippers could not be found. Some hours later the gentleman went to the postoffice, and Romp went with hiim. As he passed the market the butch er asked him to step into the store and gave him his slippers. Romp had car ried them down one at a time to pay for his meat Some Wonderful Echoes. Problably the finest echo which the world knows is in the cathedral at Pisa, where the leaning tower is. Slng two notes, and there is no rever heration; sing three, and they are at once talen up by the walls of the edifice. swelled, prolonged and varied till they seem as a divine harmony from sorme majestic organ, according to Answers. There is a cavern in Finland in which, if you test your lungs to the top of their capacity, there will an swer you such horrible roarings, moan ings and mutterings that you will be glad to rush out in absolute terror.
