LIBERAL, THOUGH A THIEF.1,
Fall of a Man Who Wus Km ployed to
Prevent Dishonesty in Other.
' Criminologists must find the fall of
the ' Bostonlnn who robbed a surety
company of which lie was mannger of
$100,000 a fascinating study in the
metaphysics of larceny. Here was a
man said to be of ".exemplary habits
and a most generous disposition," who
gave $."0 a day to the poor, in many
ways a model husband and father, and
la devoted pillar of the church. Besides
being surrounded by all the, ordinary
influences which should have taught
hiin that theft is a mistake as well a.s
a crime, the surety company's manager
I was engaged in a business which drove
1 home to him with uncommon force Its
; daily illustration that the way of the
i transgressor is bard. It was bis busi
I ness to give bonds, at a price, for men
j in osts of financial trust to insure
! their employers against loss by einbe.-
element. Frequently he was called,
j upon to prosecute and punish dofault-
ers. Yet all the while he was stealing
: from the church, stealing from the wld
; ov and orphan, stealing from the char
itable society and presenting the para-
1 uox of stealing from a company whose
business ,it Is to Insure against losses
I by theft.
i It may be that some day the selen
j lists will demonstrate the theory that
I no horrible example and no fear of
I punishment can check the passion for
; embezzlement once It seizes on a vic
tim. Perhaps the Rockefeller research '
bureau eventually will transfer . the
disease of larceny from the purview of
the police to the domain of baeteriol-
ogy and by isolating the germ of ein
1 bezzlcment will bold the army of fall
en bank cashiers up to public pity in
: stead of reproach. Just like victims of
smallpox. Meanwhile, we suppose, the
' primitive and brutal method of at
taching them to a chain with an iron
ball on the end of It will continue to
1 be practiced. New York Press.

Two-thirds of that population is now

one-third in Indian Territory. In area
the proposed new State, with its 70,
