DETECTIVE ORDINANCE NEEDED
Spokane needs an ordinance to license, control and
register private detectives. There has been so much abuse
of this line of work by shysters thai the recent scoring
of the unscrupulous private detective from the bench by
Judge Sullivan has called forth approval.
Some of the more reputable men in the private detective
work are urging that the city council pass an ordinance
regulating this line of business, requiring the men engaged
iv it to pay a stated fee to the city annually, to be regis
tered at the city hall, and that on the payment of the fee
and a satisfactory showing being made, a special officer's
star be issued, good during the life of the license and the
good behavior of the detective.
At the present time no man engaged in private detective
work can get a special officer's star without the "(). K."
of John T. Sullivan, chief of police. And Sullivan will
issue these favors only to such men as he can use in sonic
way or another. A sample of the men to whom Sullivan
has been issuing special officer's stars is Hood, the Union
Park social officer, whom The Press expose of the Rose
Elliott case caused to hurriedly leave the city. Or young
Craig, arrested the night l>efore last, charged with high
way robbery, who was a special officer until a week ago.
BEATING UP UNIONISM—THE LEGAL
It was to bo expected that Mr. Taft would urge congress
to defeat labor's demand that labor organizations be
exempted from prosecution under the Sherman anti trust
The United States supreme court has already decided
that labor organizations come within the Sherman restric
tions against conspiracy in restraint of trade. Mr. Taft is
a lawyer. No lawyer makes reputation by reversing de
cisions of the United States supreme court.
The vast majority of lawyers and all the keepers of
"open shops" will say it is sound law.
The law classes men's sweat and toil with bacon, lum
ber, leather, fuel and other ordinary commodities. The
heart, soul, well being and future of the workman are noth
ing before the law. What labor is good for. per day, in
the abstract is considered by the law. That labor means
flesh and blood, wear and tear on human life, consumption
of living beings is nothing before the law. An organization
to economize on life, force justice from mammon and com
pel greed to yield natural opportunity for progress is, at
law, as much a criminal conspiracy as it is to form a steel
or oil trust and get fat through a merciless monopoly.
Such is the law. The United States supreme court says
so. But it is not justice, morality or humaneness.
Mr. Taft was right in saying that the labor organizations
want only equality before the law.
They want the equality of men with men, not that of
men with dollars, with lumber, with shoe leather, or with
In securing this exemption, they wanted recognition of
the principle that human labor, life and hope are not sub
jects to be put into market as ordinary commodities to be
bid for and sacrificed cheaply as human needs might de
But you cannot convince many lawyers of the Taft
school that there is any point in this. With such, it is con
spiracy, inequality, class movement to seek to prevent or
ganized capital's bribing one hungry man to take another's
job. With such, the "open shop" is an institution of the
highest order of freedom. They cannot see it as the very
auction place of all freedom.
In making himself conspicuous in the defeat of this de
mand of the labor organizations, Mr. Taft has unneces
sarily taken another false step. Evidently, he is still being
made a catspaw by the same old gang that's been making
a show.of him ever since he first squatted in the presiden
THE "LANE THAT HAS NO TURN"
BY FRANCES GILBREATH INGERSOLL.
"Home was hell," she "nagged." and he "jawed" back. There were
Jealousit s on her part, and recriminations on his.
Then he found his "affinity," a very complacent low broke "gall
ing fetters," tied him anew by what he thought would be silken cords.
He huug gewgaws upon his "affinity's" fine form, aud steeped his
tenses in physical allurements, and thought he was happy.
Then, one day he lost the zest of life; he felt suddenly old; "the
l»ace tired him; he ached in mind and body.
He awoke to the fact that his money could neither buy tenderness
nor womanly sympathy, nor wifehood nor motherhood.
He wanted to lay his head against a womanly breast—one where
a little baby had nestled —and find comfort.
H( w.indered what "she" would say when Johnnie said; "God
bless pane" at night; and he cringed when he thought what the an
swer might lie to bis Question about "papa who had gone away from
'Johnnie b y.' "
He wo.iders if it is the remembered pressure of little arms about
his neck that brings that choking into his throat.
Home was hell, but he wonders now if he had tried a little harder
and been a little more patient—it might have been different.
And in the ashes of the dying fire lie buried all those things that
know no resurrection —buried honor, and manhood, and womanhood,
and parity, and plighted troth and wedded faith.
Aud he knows he is at the end of that lane of life that knows no
turning, and over which there is no going back.
