New Police Rule

Plain Intoxication Not to Be Treated
as Serious Offense By
Chief Kohler of Cleveland. O.. wss a
prominent figure at the recent convention
of police chiefs, owlna to the amount of
discussion his "Kolden rule"'- methods of
police work, propounded at the last con
vention, aroused.
"What do you think of this jolden ruler1
of commerce and labor, did not appear to
deliver his" scheduled address on "The Con
servation of National Life."
A slight Illness ivas given ns tho reason
of his nonappearance by Congressman Ben
nett of New York, who declared that he
was speaking for tho cabinet officer when
he said that the national turmoil over con
servation of forests and national reserva
tions la not nearly as Important aa the
conserving of human life throughout ths

Congressman Bennett hinted that "the
ctimlng report of the commission on lm
niinialion. which has been studying con
ditions In American factories, Is likely to
create a sensation In the number of pre
ventable deaths caused In factories."
Industrial "W"rons.
Rev. Charles fctelale, superintendent of the
Department of Commerce and Labor of the
V) Presbyterian chinch, suld that, "When .10.
000 Industrial workers are killed every year,
It means that there Is something wrong In
our Industrial system." In some caes It Is
nothing short of murder. The railways of
America alone hill nearly 12,00) people every
ytar and Injuro 120,000 persons."
"The present working day, from a physio
logical standpoint, is too long," continued
the Rev. Stelzle. "It keeps the majority of
men and women In a constant state of
over-fatigue. It leads to the craving of
means for deadening fatigue and Induces
drunkenness and other excesses."
Officials of the Atlantic City Central La
bor union led a delegation of 2.000 mechan
ics and laborers, who attended the meeting.
Moderator Charles Little preached his an
nual sermon at the men's religious meet
ing, held on the steel pier, and appealed
'for the return to the simple life as a pan
f cea for modern Ills in both Industrial and
' social life. '

form of service of the World's Sunday
School day.
In this city, the scene of the convention,
services were conducted in all the Protest

this morning, when in many of the churches
the sacrament of the Lord's supper was ob
served. '
Delegates fron. the executive committee
of the convention visited every Sunday

for boys and girls during the afternoon,

Cupid and Girl

Irite Parents
Kansas City Heiress Sent to Europe,
But She Still Lores William
Fairleigh of St. Joseph.
"Golden rule!" lis replied, with an ex
clamation. "Why, It Is stmplv common
sense, simply allowing the police officers
at the station to' exercise the common
sense with which the Creator has endowed
them Instead of having them obliged to
abide by a fixed rule without the opportun
ity of a shade of variation from It.
"Let me give you an Illustration of what
I mean. This (Saturday) afternoon a man
was brought Into the station drunk, but not
incapable, while I was there. He said he
was a farmer from Iowa and bore every
evidence of the truthfulness of his state
ment. Now if that man had been held un
til Monday morning, look at the nneaslness
of his family, end all that could be charged
against him was that when he came to
Omaha to spend his money for the bene
fit of the traders of the city he happened
to take too much liquor. Wou! it have
helped the Improvement of the man's char
acter If he had been kept In a veil at the
police station until Monday. I don't think
It would. Consequently, I had the man put
on a car and sent to the depot. Now. 1
think that man's experience with the
Omaha police will have more effect, mor
ally, upon his character than If he had ben
Immured In a cell for two days.
"This Incident will give an Idea of what
police methods should be, the methods
which have come to be known by the pic
turesque name of the 'golden rule.' But
there are difficulties and those difficulties
will add to responsibility and be a test of
the discretion of the officers at the police
"For Instance, an officer picks up a man
drunk on the street; it would not be right
that the officer should send that man home
before he brought him to the station. Sup
posing that man had money and had lost
it, would not the public be Inclined to sug
gest that the officer had helped himself.
These are among the points on which the
application of the 'golden rule' must be
"Therefore, what I mean by the golden
rule in a practical aense la that a man
who has worked steady throughout the
week should not be placed In Jeopardy of
losing his Job because on a Saturday he
may have crossed the border line and ren
dered himself liable to arrest, detention and
appearance Monday morning under bond
when ho should be at his work. The very
fact of that man having to break the con
tinuity of his work on Monday morning
might mean he would go on a spree that
would not end for the whole week. It Is
a knowledge of this fact that has led me
to give thought to the 'golden rule,' or
rather, as I should call It, the common
sense police method." " '

Ished four homes, damaged a dozen more

fatalities were reported, but one woman

slightly Injured.
The house occupied by Henry Smith was

While members of the family of William

houses lost porches and several were un-
roofed. The tornado appeared to be about
100 feet wide.
PARIS, May 23. Love and the gal ties
of Parts are waging a merry war for the
heart of Miss Emily Keith, the Kansas
City heiress, whose marriage to William
Fairleigh of St. Joseph, Mo., was prevented
In New York ten days ago. Miss Keith
will not tell reporters how the battle Is
going, but Just smiles a knowing smile
that means much. She is to be seen in
the shops and at resorts where leisure
loving Americans gather, seemingly a
happy as a lark.
When Miss Keith and her sister, Mrs.
Henry Koehler, also of Kansas City,
reached Paris, it was understood that they
had come for an indefinite stay until
the young woman should forget her love
ffalr. But she gave a pledge to Young
Fairleigh to bo homo and marry him be
fore July, so the American colony Is watch.
ng tho battle of love against folly with
genuine interest. ,
Miss Keith and Young Fairleigh are said
to have first met at a social gathering
In Kansas City. It was love at first sight
and very ardent love, too. The' girl's fam
ily objected seriously, it Is told here,
chiefly because they were Roman Catho
lics and the young man's mother Is a
Christian Science teacher. Be that as it
may, a European trip for the young wo
man was quickly decided upon, and chap
eroned by her sister. She was hurried to
New York. Cupid had no thought of be
ing so Ignomlnlously cheated, so by the
time the unwilling voyager ' was an hour
on her way Young Fairleigh, too, was
speeding for New York. The lovers met,
arranged for their marriage by the rector
of the church of the Holy Cross, and
then let the cat out of the bag by inviting
the chaperon to witness the ceremony.
Somewhat sensational scenes followed
fast, resulting in the young couple break-
ng away and hurrying to the house of
the priest. Quickly Mrs. Kohler escorted
by her brother-in-law. Captain Koehler.
U. S. N., and others followed, and at the
altar continued their pleading with the girl.
At last she yielded and sailed away, but
at the pier she waved her lover goodby
and shouted:
"My love cannot change I will . become
your bride on June 29."

Sorrowing relatives of the dead were the
particular prey of the alleged swindlers,
but sometimes newly-wedded persons were
defrauded. Business Is said to have been
done under the name of the Itoline com
pany and all transactions were based on
death and marriage notices appearing In
out-of-town newspapers.
The "company" owned a supply of cheap
jewelry. These articles, . In neatly ad
dressed packages, were sent to the dead of
other cities always "collect.". The de
liveries were so timed as to reach the
house after the day of the funeral, and the
first thought of the survivors was that
there was some sentimental value clinging
to the article and the deceased. . The bill
ranging from 15 to 120, was gladly paid
without examination of the contents.
In the case of newly-married persons the
Impression was that It was a present from
somebody who forgot to pay for the goods
and the bill was usually paid.
A federal agent was sent here from
Washington to work on the case. De
tectives iouna a letter in wnicn the ex
ecutors of James T. McClurg, who died
recently in uenver, sent tne "company" a
check for $12 in payment for spectacles.
The business was wldespraed and all th

Harry E. Smith, which called for $5.
