As each year passes the movement
to distribute the voluuio of labor In
cident to the Christinas holidays
grows more and more in popular fav
or. Begun al Hrsl by n few possibly
flippant paragraphers in the llOWSpa-1
pi is the slogan "Shop Early" has been
taken up by SO many and Used with
such telling effect that the salespeo
ple and public cat t iers all over the
country have found the burden ofi
Christmas work greatly lessened. The
national govcrniincul Itself has given
tho weight of its Influence to tho
movement and has assisted in lessen
ing the burden of its own employees j
!>y providing for delayed delivery of
postal packages at Christmas lime.
Oifts sent through the mails, if so di
rected, will he held at the point of des
tination until Christmas eve before de
livery is made. Merchants will do tho
same thin:; for their customers, hold
ing gifts until the time wished for
delivery. In fact everything has been
done to encourage the movement for
early shopping and tho,,- who really
have ;i desire to make tin- coming
weeks easier upon overworked clerks
ami other employes should begin to
preparo for Lie holidays now.

unfortunates and that he has no ul
terior motive in giving executive
'clemency to so many, It may be. But,
upholding and maintaining the majes
ty of the law is not and should not

too much at stake. The lives ami
fortunes of our people, the virtue of
our women ami our progress and ad
vancement along every line are all
dependent. Upon the stability of the
government and to recklessly let
down the bars of Justice by a whole

We sympathize with criminal; our
