A man was recently arrested in
Chicago for thrashing ono of his fel
low passengers in a street car he
cause he would not cease smoking
when requested to do so. The police
justice before whom lie was brought
for trial discharged him without
punishment, in commenting upon
which a leading Chicago journal
makes tho following remarks, with
which we quite agree: ''It is there
fore settled, so far as a police court
decision can settle anything, that a
man who persists in smoking on a car
where tiicrc is a woman, may be
thrashed by her escort, if he is strong
enough and can expect no redress.
This kind of law may shock the su
preme court, but there is consider
able horse sense in it. No man has
a right to make a nuisance of himself
in a public conveyance, and a com
pany should not tolerate it."
