Indeed, the public sentiment has fixed a line beyond whioh critics of Presidents have not dared to go. The fact that newspaper editors and public men have stepped far beyond that line with respect to the present chief executive only indicates the large liabllliy'Mr. Roosevelt has In curred by his wanton, reckless as saults upon other own. The New York Evening Post prints an edi torial from which the following is taken : "All this, however, only throws us back on the queststlon why Con gress should have been heaping up so Intense a hatred of the President. Was It due to Jealousy of his popu larity? Was It envy of his fame? Was It even resentment at his dic tatorial manners? None of these things. The truth of the matter It is a delicate thing to atate, hut no one who has any acquaintance with congressmen, no one who knows Washington, can have any doubt what that truth is. It Is, in a word, that Congress does not believe in President Roosevelt's moral sincer ity. It thinks him hypocritical. He lias lectured It and the country on truthfulness, yet nine out of ten cniieroKsmen believe Mr. Roosevelt himself to be liabltuaii.v untruthful. He has posed as a champion of fair nlav. vet congressmen believe him to light foul. They picture him living in ami (ii lighting in an atmos phere of suspicion, intrigue and cal- iiniiiv. His talk of the sotnire (loal they scoff at as sheer pretense. The sav that he protects favorites, such as Putt) Morton and the steel cor poration, while furlouslv prosecut ing his enemies or those whom he thinks he can make political capital by attacking. In short, Congress is throughly convinced that all the superior moral exhortation which It has had from President Roosevelt lias come from a man who allows in himself the thing he condemns lu others. Mind, we do not say thai Congress Is right about It. We only te after state fl " w,,nt " believes to be true t ougressmen may iw ueciwveu, im there can lie M question that this Is what they honestly think about the President."

It is barley possible that it may refer to Mr. Rooaovolt himself, although that supposition is considered highly improbable. If it means what it says, namely, the United Mat. as a government, meaning the Roosevelt aduiinlstra tlon, It is by all odds the most im portant and farreaching case so far as the freedom or the American press is concerned that has ever been brought in this coutry. In this view, it becomes an at tempt on the part of the Roosevelt administration to punish the owner and editor of the New York World for criminal libel that is, for politi cal criticisms of the administration. If such a suit can be successfully maintained, the freedom of the press will become an empty phrase, and the doctrine of lose majeste will have transferred Its seat of sov ereignty from the despot le countries of Europe to tbe hitherto free soil of the American republic. No prece dent or parallel for such a procedure can lie fouud In the history of this country. Since the repeal of the sedition law of 1TUS, no American jurist has contended that the United States government has the power to punish cJtlsens eriiniuallyjfor state ments calcinated to Injure Itself. Inasmuch as the case can not pos sible lie determined in the brief period remaining to the Roosevelt administration, it must be presumed that President Elect Taft's attorney general will prosecute it with his assent. It is hardly conceivable that Mr. Roosevelt would have un dertaken the matter, knowing that It could not be concluded during his term of office, without consulting with Mr. Taft and obtaining his ap proval. If this proves to be the' ease, one of the first raasures to be pressed by the Taft administration will be this unprecedented attempt to muxsle the American press, which would he moat deplorable, for that this innovation in legal procedure will have a leg to stand on in the courts no lawyer of standing be lieve, except apparently Attorney General Bonaparte, and he is rather a negligible quanlty Judging by bis past accomplishments.

That, however, Is not the interesting part of the story which involved In subsequent proceed- ngs. From the (Jliicago iiecora- Hcrald report the following la taken ; The prisoner turned away from the bench to the deputy marshal waiting to take him to jail. He turned his coat collar up around his throat. "Aronson," exclaimed the court sharply, "where's your overcoatT" Your honor," aald the "white slaver," I ain't got none. That was one of the first things I soaked when I come to Chicago." HalllH," said the Judge, "get mine and give it to him. Now, gentlemen," he added, turning to the lawyers, "we'll proceed with the next case." An hour later Judge Landia' thin figure was breasting the hreese that tore down Dearborn street. 'HI, there, Judge," shouted friend, "where's your overcoBt?" I used It to light a Are." 'Used It to light a flreT" 'Yea," said Judge Landls, used it to light a tire to keep wurm Inside nf me the spirit nf charity that life lu a great city like Chicago tends to freese." And his friend was still gazing at him In astonishment when he Jumped on his car.

Washington, Jan. 24. -Relative to Preaident Roosevelt's endeavor to use the libel laws to punish news papers that have attacked the Pana ma Canal purchase, an utterance contain . -il in Thomas Jefferson's ln auguari.l address at the beginning of his second term as President Is being mtirh discussed here. President Jefferson 104 years ago adopted a position under similar circumstances exactly the reverse of that now taken by President Roosevelt. That which Jefferson then said is now being referred to as oxactly ex pressing the views of those who are criticising Roosevelt. During this course of adminis tration," President Jefferson said, and in order to disturb it. the ar tillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever Its licentiousness oould devise or "These abuses of an Institution so Important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lesson its usefulness and sap Its safety. "They might, Indeed, have been corrected by wholesome punish ments reserved . to and provided by the laws of the several States against falsehood and defamation, but public duties more urgent press on the time of public servants and the offenders have, therefore, been left to find their punishment in tin- public lndignutiun." President Jefferson then said that an Interesting experiment had been made as to whether "freedom of dis cussion unaided by ower Is not sufficient for the propogatlon and protection -of truth." He declared that the experiment had proven successful lu this lan guage: "No inference is here Intended that the law provided by the States against false and defamatory publi cations should not be enforced. He who has time renders a service to public morals and public trauqutllty ln reforming these abuses by salu tary coercions of the law, but the experiment Is noted to prove that since truth and reason have main tained their ground against false opinions in league with false facts, the press, confined to truth, needs no oilier legal restraint. "The public Judgment will correct false reasonings and opinions on a full hearing of all parties, and no other definite line can be drawn be tween the Inestimable liberty of the press and Its demoralizing licen OfeTB flour r wo Seal sblpstolt (sacked).

BRYAN Ah a groat Commoner In whose purity of purpose men of all parlies have absolute confidence, William Mryan has a great opportunity to render service to his fellows. That he will grasp this opportunity no one will doubt. He will do It from tho lecture platform; he will do it iu newspaper Interviews; hut best of all he will do It through his own pub licationThe Commonera paper that is now steadily forging to the font because through Its columns the American people may continually keep In touch with Mr. Bryan's opln ion upon public questions and with his efforts for the public welfare Mr. Bryan announces that he has auain assumed editorial charge of The Commoner and that he will give active, personal attention to theedi torial department. Men of all political parties have a deep and abiding interest In the fight which Mr. Bryan is to wage through the columns of The Commoner. It Is a light for the public welfare; right against the encroachment by special Interests upon the public in tercsts; a fight for the protection of the men who, In pofesslonal office, in the farm. In counting room or In workshop give honest toil for their livelihood. It is a fight to preserve popular government as the fathers found it. In tho initial number of The Com moncr printed iu 1H01 Mr. Bryan said: The Commoner will be sat Isfi. d if, by fidelity to the people, proves Its right to the name which has been chosen." The Commoner has proved Us right to the name and het'iiuse It is giving this proof iu abundance Tho Commoner deserves the support of the American people Feeling that a wider circulation of The Commoner in our section will materially advance the democratic cause, aud that a large per cent of our readers, as well as others who should be regular readers of our pa per, will take pleasure in helping to Increase The Commoner's influence In this community, we have made special arrangements witn asr. Bryan whereby we can furnish The Commoner and Tha Kannlnfton Times at tbe exceptionally low mt of m, each for on year. This pedal rase holds Mod for a time esju.
