The revival of the rumor that Kaiser
Wilhelm frequently visits Paris dis
guised as the machinist of a motor
car serves to remind the world that
there was once an unpleasantness be
tween Trance and Germany which
makes it uncomfortable for the pre
siding genius of the Hollenzollern
family to take in the sights of Paris
in his own proper person. About thir
ty-five years ago, as many now living
remember, the grandfather of the
present emperor went to Paris, ac
companied by a large crowd of Ger
mans armed with revolvers, swords
and needle guns. They made it so dis
agreeable for the Parisians that they
paid the Germans a large sum of mon?y
—if it were not for offending Mr.
Witte, we might call it an indemnity
—to go away. Since then no German
emperor has visited Paris except as
William is alleged to make his calls,

were very fond of going about clad

ing kisses from soncy lassies, who
were not supposed to know it was the
king who bussed them, but who prob
ably didn't care a baubee whether it
was or not, so long as the kisses were
right. In other times the kings of
France pattered about Paris incog,
listening to hear what the people had
to say about the royal family. They
usually got what eavesdroppers de
serve. The secret memoirs of Count
Richard de Benbon, recently issued
in forty-eight volumes by an Ameri
can publisher, who got the original
manuscript from a certain lady in the
Latin quarter, relates that the court
always knew when the king had been
out on one of these nocturnal excur

Henry St. George Tucker, president
of the American Bar association, made
a very remarkable address in opening
its recent annual session. He took as
his theme at"plea for professional puri
ty, and began by quoting from the
president's Harvard speech:
"We all know that as things actu
ally are many of the most influential
and most highly remunerated mem
bers of the bar make it their especial
task to work out bold and ingenious
schemes by which their wealthy clients
can evade the laws which are made
to regulate, in the interest of the pub
lic, the use of great wealth."
This Mr. Tucker said was a grave
charge and it placed upon the asso
ciation the duty of inquiring not
merely whether in isolated instances
it is true, but the broader inquiry
whether the ethics of the legal pro
fession rise to the standard which its
position of influence in the country
demands. The legal profession he de
clared to be more influential than any
other except the ministry, and he
doubted whether its power for good
was not in some respects greater than
that noble profession. Its power for
evil was correspondingly great.
De Tocqueville, an acute French
observer, when he visited this coun
try sought for the foundation of the
future aristocracy of this republic,
since he believed that the country
must inevitably have an aristocracy.
He found it in the lawyers. He saw
them everywhere leading their com
munities in politics, in public speech
and even in the attempts at the de
velopment of the esthetic side of life.
The American lawyer as he saw him
was the aristocracy in the bud. Has
that bud unfolded according to the
Frenchman's predictions? We see
many evidences that it has suffered
a blight. The lawyer has not main
tained his position at the head of the
community. He has given way in our
time to the man of affairs. As the
viser and the servant of the business
man. the lawyer has secured a posi
tion of comfort and security in the
community, but it is not a place of
leadership. He has become a hired
man, working for wages, and as the
president says, too often twisting ex
isting laws and inventing new ones to
enable his patron to get more and be
The lawyer remains a great mental

down in the moral scale with the rest
of the community. Others have be
come subservient to the dollar, and
the lawyer not more so than they. It
is only the contrast between the law
yer of Webster's time and De Tocque
ville's observation which calls atten
tion to his retrogression.
The lawyer still has a great oppor
tunity because he has a great forum.
The enforcement of law is a rising de
mand in America. The square deal is
a shibboleth. No man in the com
munity has a better chance to lead in
the campaign for justice than the
lawyer. But it will involve, as Mr.
Tucker suggests, the purging of the
profession of unworthy men, and it is
just as true that it will involve some
sacrifice of fees from clients who
want to deal with marked cards.
President Roosevelt went aboard
the submarine torpedoboat Plunger a
few days ago and made a descent be
neath the water which lasted fifty
minutes. During that time the boat
went through all the evolutions of
which these remarkable craft are ca
pable, running along close to the bot
tom, rising and diving like a porpoise
and moving just far enough below the
surface to conceal everything except
the conning tower which is no bigger
than a bushel basket.
He probably made this trip without
any feeling of apprehension and pos
sibly subjected himself to no very
great danger, and yet the country Is
likely to be nervous over the disap
pearance of its president under the
surface of the ocean in a submarine
boat. In the popular mind, at least,
sailing on a craft of that kind is at
tended with peculiar danger and the
president certainly is not justified in
taking any risks. His life is not like
that of an ordinary man. It is of
value not alone to himself but to the
public. When he gets through being
president if he wants to risk his neck,
that is his affair, but while he is en
trusted with the duties of his office
his life belongs to the public and he
is bound to take extraordinary pre
cautions to avoid exposure to danger
and is under some obligation to re
gard popular feeling and avoid creat
ing apprehension with regard to his
Just now, there are peculiar reasons
why Theodore Roosevelt should take
no risks of this kind. He is today the
most conspicuous figure in the world.
He is mainly responsible .for the fact
that a peace conference is being held
in this country which affects the lives
of hundreds of thousands of men and
has a bearing upon the interests of
every civilized nation. Its successful
issue depended largely upon him. If
he had not come up again, the con
fusion and disaster which would have
followed would have been indescriba
"While from one standpoint One is
bound to admire his willingness to
take the same risks which he asks the
men who sail on these boats to take,
and while his conduct in this particu
lar will doubtless encourage men who
are needed for that service to devote
themselves to it with greater enthu
siasm, the advantage gained in this
particular is not to be considered in
comparison with the risk undertaken
for the sake of it.
Eccentric i_ogic.
In his "Reminiscences of Bench and
Bar," Mr. Sargeant Robinson hts re
corded some choice specimens of ec
centric logic in the sentences pro
nounced by Sergeant Arabin, a com
missioner of the central court. In
sentencing a prisoner convicted of
stealing property from his master he
thus addressed him:
"Prisoner at the bar, if ever there
was a clearer case than this of a man
robbing his master, this case is that
Again, in sentencing a man to a
comparatively light punishment, he
used these words:
Prisoner at the bar, there are miti
gating circumstances in this case
which cause me to take a lenient
view Of it, and I will therefore give
you a chance of redeeming a character
that you have irretrievably lost."
He once corrected a talkative wit
ness thus:
"My good man, don't go babbling
on so. Hold your tongue and answer
the question that is put to you.'
Prof. Becker, . the world famous
chef, entertained a large number of
ladies at his cooking exhibition at
Diumheller's store yesterday after
In full view of everybody the pro
fessor cooked and demonstrated
how all kinds of fancy biscuits and
deli-ious pastry are made.
The professor did his baking on
one of the famous Majestic Ranges
and the possibilities of this grand
s .eve v ere completely shown.
T:i addition to his baking, the pro
fessor demonstrated his ability as a
lecturer and gave the ladies present
many pointers on the art of baking.
From 2 to 5 p. m. coffee and a lib
eral lunch was served. The demon
strations are to be given each after
noon for the balance of the week and
as they are so instructive it is not
likely that they will be overlooked
by any of the ladies of the city.
A feature of yesterday's demonstra
tion was a special spread which was
served to the local newspaper men
of the city.
Killed By Live Wire.
Coroner J. C. Henry this afternoon
received word that Leonard Carrol
was dead from the effects of coming
in contact with a live wire.
The facts of the case as near as
can be learned at this time, are that
the Grand Ronde Electric company's
wires are down at a point near the
Hempe brothers' farm which is locat
ed about three miles east of Hot Lake,
and that parties living near there had
placed the wires upon the fence and
that young Carrol knew this to be a
fact and was showing some persons
where the wires had been, and placed
his hand upon the fence, but not di
rectly upon a wire. The fence board
formed a conductor and the entire
current passed through the plank and
into the young man's body, causing
instant death. The wire had been
down since yesterday's storm, but no
one in the neighborhood had taken the
trouble to inform the company of the
fact. —La Grande Observer.
Indians Trying to Get Home.
Word has been received on the res
ervation that the Umatillas now with
the wild west show at Grand Rapids,
Mich., are heartily sick of their jobs
and are making every effort to get
back to the reservation. Money will
be sent some of the members of tne
party, from here, but several who are
in Grand Rapids will not be able to
draw on friends here but will have to
remain there until they earn enough
to buy a ticket to Oregon.—East Ore
