Porterfleld. maim.r of foreign advertising r "I don't know why ankono should protend to keep the len commandments simply heeause they are in the hihle. !A man named Moses gave these laws long ago and I do not think men are hound hy them at this late day."—Ex tract from an interview with a Chicago bigamist. Of course the words are said either in sheer ignorance or in reckless bravado. But is there not a hint in them of a certain kind of loose thinking? The ten commandments are not true simply heeause they are in the Bible. Bather are they in the Bible heeause they are true. They would he true —and binding—if there ;were no Rihle. Moral laws are inherent in things as are physical laws. As certainly as you put your finger in the fire it will he Jiurned. As certainly as you violate the moral law will you Suffer. Penalty for sinning logically and naturally and in evitably follows the sin. It is as absolute as that 2 and _ make 4. Take the "not" out of the items of the decalogue and let us see what we have: us say, thou shalt kill, thou shalt steal, thou shalt commit adultery, thou shalt bear false witness. Do the statements have any more effect than If you say 2 and 2 are 5, or that all the angles of a triangle are not equal to two right angles? Supose you insert the "not" in one of those command ments and say, thou shalt not honor thy father and mother. 3s the assertion of any more effect than if you say a body unsupported will fall upward? Mosos is nT>t the author of any moral laws. He simply 'discovered some of them. "What men and women of all times need to settle for themselves is that there is an inherent and eternal law of right and wrong, absolutely indestructible, and as invaria ble as the physical laws of the universe. Moral law is not a mere convenience. ■ It is a fundamental. Tliis story was told the editor, recently by a friend: "A brother of mine died a few years ago, leaving a young son. My brother was a good fellow but was never able to accumulate any estnte. lie frequently borrowed money of me, which I was glad to lend him. Ho paid it as he could, but always in debt to mo. When he died he owed me between $300 and $400." "Of course I never expected to get back my money. But I reckoned without the boy, my nephew. He has grown to be a young man. The other day I had a letter from him asking me to name the precise amount his father owed me at the time of the latter's death. He said he intended to pay every cent of it. His salary was but $45 a month, but he would be able to pay me in the course of a few years." Said my friend: "The letter brought tears to my eyes. I did not care for the money. It was the boy's high sense of honor and duty that touched me. I wish I could make the sum smaller than that owed me, but the boy knows ap proximately the amount, nnd I dare not rob him of the sat isfaction of paying the whole debt." That boy is made of THE REAL STUFF. He is of the stuff of which heroes and martyrs—nay of which MEN are made. No law forces the brave young fellow to pay the obli gations of the dead save the la wof moral duty. He is not impeled by any hope of gain save that of conscience and by no fear of loss save the loss of honor. But he is a man every inch of him. eveiy pound of him. One would rather be the father of such a youth than to be the father to a common millionaire. Because the boy has got SOUL FIBRE. Street Cars For Women Some faddisli New York women are agitating the question of separate street cars for women. The proposal is absurd. It is as insane as was the old custom of compelling men and women to be seated on opposite sides of the meeting house. Association of the sexes is necessary for both men and women. There are already too many tendencies toward separation. More and more are women finding exclusive entertainment in clubs and men in lodtres. Is the saving grace of gallantry to become a vanishing virtue? Aside from the sociological reasons here hinted at, it is as uncalled for to have separate street cars for women as to provide separate sidewalks for men. And, moreover— How would you go about it to prevent a woman from boarding the first street car that comes along? Suppose it is marked "Gentlemen." Would any woman who is in a hurry pay any attention? Besides. At the first declaration that women should not ride ou the cars provided for men, there would be a clamor against individious distinctions. No. All of us, men and women, are here to work out our destiny together. In another sense than marriage it may be said, "What God hath joined let not man put asunder." Women are to be associated with men that they may learn to be considerate. Tho solution of the whole matter is in improved car service and better manners. Moral Law The Real Stuff Entered et Spokane, Wash., aa eecond class matter. A MATTER OF HEALTH HAS NO SUBSTITUTE ii With Chief Two Feathers and his manager, Jack O'Neill, safely stowed away somewhere hack in Montana, instead of being present to carry out the wrestling match with Ole Marsh, Dune McMillan, the veteran conqueror of Marsh and the Indian, agreed to go on at the Spokane the ater last night in the place of the chief. It was an offer, the generosity of which wasn't appre ciated by some of the spectators, even when they were told that McMillan could have secured a match with Marsh for $1,000 a side, which sum he was throwing away a chance to win by taking the Indian's place. ® ® ® At that is was a greater, more scientific exhibition of wrestling than would have been given with the Indian as Marsh's opponent. Two Feathers could not have put up the magnificent work done by either McMillan or Marsh in that first 28 minutes of wrestling. He hasn't the science —the knowledge of the game—to get into or out of the holes through which Ole and Dune traveled. The Indian is dependent upon his strength and slipper iness to get through a match. With McMillan and Marsh, "every move's a picture" and not an ounce of strength is wasted in such a bout as that given last night. ® ® ® Although McMillan took the Indian's place without hesitation and without squabbling over the money he was throwing away in a future match, the bad blood etween the two men cropped out hefore the match started and re sulted in belligerent speeches by either wrestler. There has been ill feeling between the two ever since the decisions given against Marsh at the Auditorium on those rolling falls. This was increased when Marsh chal lenged the winner of the Two Feathers-McMillan match, which happened to be the Scotchman. ® ® ® But although Marsh was to wrestle the winner, O'Neill got to him with the money first and the match with Two Feathers resulted despite the kicks of McMillan who claimed he was entitled to first choice. ® ® ® Last night Dune started the hall again by calling atten tion to his claim that Marsh had sidestepped him for the Indian, but that he was just square enough to go on eny way, notwithstanding he had not trained for the bout. Then it was Oles turn to get mad over the announce ment of "Mac" that he had defeated Marsh, and the latter did some strong talking to the effect that McMillan would know he was in a fight this time. ® ® ® It was with these pjeasant exchanges that the two men came together for the first fall. There wasn't any soldiering in that bout. Each man went in with all the stuff there was in him and it was un doubtedly the best exhibition of science, strength and clever wrestling ever witnessed in the city. ® ® ® The two men were exactly opposite in their style of work and tactics used. McMillan continually worked to get on top in the down and then work in his fatal half Nel son and crotch, against which no man had proved invul nerable. Every move of the veteran reached toward that end. Once in position and the burly Scot was always able heretofore to use his strength and weight in a crushing, suffocating wedge which wore down his man and placed him almost helpless. This had happened before with the Indian and Marsh. ® ® ® But Marsh was much faster last night than in his pre vious go with McMillan and his speed and triekiness saved him numerous times when "Mac" would shove him over with the lock. 1 Time after time Ole worked out of that dangerous bold, or spun, or rolled, in a flying bridge for the top. He never stopped an instant ut kept boring into Dune with a vicious ness which, while not showing results plainly at the time, was evidenced in the Scotchman's slower work and loss of strength in the succeeding bouts. ® ® ® That bout contained more speed, skill and real work than all of the other matches put together, because either man was doing his best at a pace which was surely chop -1 iug both down. .1 &AKIN<S POWDER Absolutely Pure THE SPOKANE PRESS Marsh exerted himself to trick the veteran and used his marvelous and ligthning speed in efforts to gain trick holds, which the wily Scot always managed to cleverly evade at the outset. Dune slammed into hard locks on Ole half a dozen times and each time it looked bad for the Bellingham man as breaking such hadn't been recorded against the veteran in times past. But by splendid effort and magnificent dis plays of agility and strength Marsh would spin or roll out of the danger or dray to a bridge and at once bore in again like a tiger. ® ® ® After 24 minutes of the fastest kind of work "Mac" got Marsh into the fatal hole and with a half Nelson and a crotch hold was able to work Ole back and forth to the points down, but not until Marsh had withstood the terri ble punishment for four full minutes. The effects of the terrible strain of that, first half hours work showed plainly on McMillan after that and in the next two bouts Marsh was able to have it more his own way. The second fall went to Ole in 11% minutes when Mc- Millan was topped following a bridge roll by Ole out of the half Nelson. Marsh used his weight more in this bout and with a neck hold and bar put the Scotchman over for the points. ® ® ® The third bout brought out both men in a new turn. Neither man seemingly cared to take the chances of a drop which would bring him under for the rolling and grueling and for four and a half minutes they worked on their feet, Marsh taking the aggressive and trying different tricks of leg work and lifts. McMillan showed himself wily and strong on his feet and evaded the tricks, coming back sev eral times with arm looks which came near being trans formed into over shoulder throws that might have serious ly ended the match. ® ® ® At the end of the four and a half minutes the men went down together in a trip, but were back on their feet ins tantly. Then came into play all of the skill and cleverness of the two gladiators. From end to end of the mat, up and down and up, fight ing viciously for the slightest advantage, the first display of roughing outside of holds came when Ole started to baokheoling McMillan, to which the Scot promptly re sponded. Each man had downs to his credit but it was not until 15 minutes had elapsed that McMillan, evidently losing for once that remarkable strength and endurance which has pulled him through many a tight lane, bowled over with his foot twisted in Marsh's rough, merciless grasp and rolled to the edge of the canvas, wher Ole held him with his weight in an effort to turn "Mac's" shoulder point by twisting his foot and ankle to the breaking point. Dune withstood the fierce strain until Ole raised and shifted to a shoulder hitch with which he fairly lifted Mc- Millan all points from the floor and slammed him down with terrible force, adding his full weight to the fall. The lift and slam sent McMillan partially off the can vas and he fell with his head and one shoulder off the mat, hut a full and complete fall scoring. Referee Devanney called the fall, hut McMillan pro tested it a foul because he was off the canvas. The referee held the fall started on the canvas and refused to allow the protest. ® ® ® Then it was that Marsh offered to wager $2500 against $250 that he could throw the Indian three straight and called attention to the decision in his previous bout with McMillan through which he got the worst of it. "McMillan is kicking now because he fell off the can vas," said Marsh. " When the referee gave me the worst of it I went to my dressing room and kicked to myself. But he wants to kick here." ® ® ® The scrapping and speeehmaking was hugely enjoyed by the spectators who felt they got more than their moneys worth with McMillan up instead of the Indian and were in a good humor. They kept calling for speeches until every body had their say and then the crowd filed out laughing and highly pleased over the great bit of wrestling. ® ® ® No word was received from O'Neill this morning and the management of the match is still in doubt as to wheth er Jack and the Indian fluked with cold feet, or something happened to detain them on the reservation —such as fail ing to get permission from the Indian agent to take Two Feathers off the reservation. O'Neill lost the $XX) forfeit money posted as a guaran tee for the appearance of the Indian and Jack is certainly too good a sport to chance losing that so long as he had a fighting show for winning the match. ® ® ® O'Neill's failure to appear spoiled the Jap program of Jui Jitsu and cut out the five men program, for which was substituted exhibition matches between Ben Martin and Charley Gugat and Joe Beinrich and Max Anderson. ® to ® Manager Harry Haupt has received word that the bowl ing tournament by telegraph has been arranged. The teams in San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Spokane, Butte. Salt Lake and Denver will play and each score will be wired from city to city and marked up just the same as if the teams were playing on the one set of alleys. The Brun wick-Balke-Collender company has offered a loving cup to the team winning the match which will probably be held April U. In Spokane the tournament games will be played on the Pfister alleys.
