FRIDAY EVENING, FEB. 27 '
THE BECKER CASE
IT seems to be an almost accepted:
fact that Lieutenant Becker, now
remanded for a new trial in con
nection with the murder of the
gambler Rosenthal, may never again
face a jury.
This Is all wrong. It is admitted I
that if Becker escapes it will be on a!
legal technicality. The bulk of the I
evidence was strongly against him.
There was no apparent doubt as to
his guilt either on the part of the pub
lic or the jury. If he was not the
higher up" in the plot that re
sulted in the killing of Rosenthal, he
at least was a representative of 'the
"System" that was back of the mur
der. There seems to be no doubt of
Nevertheless, in the face of these
facts, friends of District Attorney
Whitman say that he may never press
for a new trial, and the likelihood is
that Becker will go free. Whitman
faces a grave responsibility in this. He
thus practically admits that the bar is
unable to obtain a conviction in the
face of overwhelming evidence point
ing to guilt, and that the judge on
the bench is ruled by legal technicali
ties instead of the facts in the case.
The efficacy of the whole legal sys
tem of 'New York State, if not the
country at large, is at stake. The
plain duty of the District Attorney is
to do his full part In the matter. 11©
displayed a fine type of courage when
he first prosecuted Becker and the
men convicted with him. He must not
shirk now. The only thing he can do
is to move for a new trial, and that
New York might take a lesson in
thlß respect from Pennsylvania. Men
of wealth and prominent in the State
were brought to the bar here for com
plicity in the Capitol furnishing
frauds. Neither fear nor favor was
permitted to stand between Aiem and
Justice. The facts in the case and not
the ingenious devices of clever law
yers governed the judge and jury. It
Is this kind of criminal law that New
York needs at this time.
VICIS PRESIDENTIAL VIEWS
IT is a grand thing for the courttry
that the personal views of a Vice-
President do not have the weight of
those of his immediate superior.
Else one T. R. Marshall would be
keeping the nation in hot water half
the time and "cussing" his foolish
prattle the other half.
Just now he has chosen to express
himself in generalities that would
shame the wiseacre of a country cor
ner store. Says he, for example,
"500,000 people annually come from
our schools to achieve success and
400,000 are failures."
What constitutes a failure? Is it
the sober, industrious citizen who goes
about his daily tasks, year in and
year out, paying his debts, caring for
his family and obeying the laws? Or
is It the favored son of a political up
heaval who, finding himself unexpect
edly in office by a minority vote.
Chooses to spend his time saying wise
sounding things that mean nothing?
Speak up, Mr. Marshall, it's your
turn to say something.
HOW SULLIVAN* "CAME BACK"
JOHN L. SULLIVAN happened into
New York the other day and his
appearance along Broadway was
so unusual that newspapers writ
ers sought him out for an interview.
Time was when the name of "John
L." was in the news columns every
day and his was a familiar figure in
all the "sporty" cafes of the big city.
It is remarkable that almost a score
of years after he went down to defeat
before Corbett. the old pugilist should
be worth "front page space" in the
Sullivan is an unusual man in many
■ways. He was, first of all, the great
est American fighter that ever donned
a glove. In the second place he was
In the heyday of his career generous
to a fault, witty and full of homely
Wisdom, that constantly
into good copy for the reporters. The
public liked him and he went the
rum-routs of the average pugilist It
To-day he Is married to a quiet
little woman who does not know the
difference between the Marquis of
Queensbury rules and a right arm jab.
He Is bringing up two little boys, not
his own, who would otherwise be
homeless, and he is running a little
moving picture theater so successfully
that he will soon have enough money
laid aside to enat -• him to retire on a
comfortable compstence In his old
j He has no more hankering for the
| ring. The white lights hold no at
traction for him. He indulges in none
of poor old Bob Fitzsimmons' talk of
"coming back," for Sullivan has
"come back" In a way that beats
prize ling supremacy to a frazzle.
The lesson In this is that success
often lies in defeat, if we will only
sea it, and that nobody is so far down
that he cannot rise again if he Is de
termined to do so.
THE POPULAR SONG
the popular song be
censored?" asks the editor of
the "Woman's World." On
first thought we are Inclined
to reply, no, it should be prohibited.
It is pretty nearly a fault of the
! language to designate both "Annie
Laurie" and that ribald snatch of tin
] horn melody, "When I Get You Alone
| To-night," by the common name of
I song. There is about as much differ-
I ence between them as there is be-
I tween the tinkle of sweet toned bells
and the croaking of a family of frogs
in a puddle, with the difference In fa
vor of the frogs who never say any
thing offensive, no matter how dis
turbing their racket may be.
I Listening to the crimes that are
• perpetrated in every vaudeville house
in the country in the name of music
one must pause to wonder how the
performers "get it over." Many of
the so-called tunes are not tunes at
all, but this variety seldom reaches
the stage that might be called "popu
lar"—when hurdigurdies play them
and street urchins whistle them.
The attraction certainly cannot be
with the words. They often do not
even make sense. Eliminating the
words, then, there must be something
of merit in these tunes that do "get
over" the footlights and which catch
the popular fancy. The lilt, the time
and some haunting phrase in the re
frain may be at the bottom of their
popularity. It matters not. The tunes
persist until they are virtually worn
out by constant repetition.
The thing to do then, it would
seem, would be to let the "composers"
go their ways and get after the writ
ers of the words. Eliminate the ob
jectionable sentiment and there will
be small harm in the popular song
tune, albeit little to elevate.
LIVING on a salary is a more or
less precarious form of exist
ence, but it is not wise for every
man to go into business for
himself. Some men are not fitted for
that responsibility, and there are a
great many failures of men who
strike out for themselves without suf
fi?ient backing of capital or experi
However, if you never save any
money out of your salary, you will
never get ahead financially. You al
ways will be the tail of another man's
kite, always stoking to keep up steam
in the boilers of somebody else's busi
Plan your course so that you will
not always be dependent upon your
salary. Build up a reserve fund.
From time to time make wise invest
ments, and in a comparatively few
years you may become independent,
and In the meantime you will be able
to do better work and more of it, be
cause your mind will be relieved of
anxiety as to what would happen if
your regular income should fail.
How one salaried man got ahead is
told in this letter a Chicago man wrote
to his savings bank:
I was married in 1904 on a salary
of $75 a month. In November, 1910,
I was receiving $135 a month. That
winter sickness cost us $360, and
we had very little money in the
bank to pay for It. We determined
that we would save.
To show what people can do with
a fixed determination to succeed,
we began immediately to save from
$35 to $75 a month, and In eighteen
months I paid in $1,050 on a lot
and sold my equity for $1,200 cash
and also paid back a loan of SSO
Two days after I received my
• cash I reinvested my money In an
other lot, paying $1,200 down on a
$2,400 lot. 1 then had about sl,-
850. Two days afterward I Invest
ed again. I paid $550 cash on two
lots at a contract price of $5,600.
In two days I sold my contract on
one for $575 cash, making S2OO net
on transaction. That afternoon I
bought another one for $2,800, pay
ing $275 down and in two and one
half days I sold my $275 equity for
$575, making S2OO on th-t lot.
I then had one lot left on which I
had paid $1,200 down, keeping rhe
balance for investment. In about
five and a half months 1 sold my
$1,200 equity for $2,000. November
12, 1913, I purchased another lot
One does not need to deprive
himself of the comforts of lire to
accomplish the foregoing results,
for we have lived very comfortably
and I have given my mother from
$5 to $lO per month during this
time, and last summer I purchased
a motor boat and my family and I
spent three months at ono of the

1910, and have $3,000 cash in No
vember, 1918, three years there
It will not take long for a thrifty
man like this to become independent
of the pay envelope and fearless of
the "pink slip."
AY hile the cold snap baa caused con
siderable Inconvenience to farmers and
fruit growers because of the deep
snows preventing the outdoor work
which Is ordinaliiy inaugurated at this
period of the winter, it has not been
an unmixed blessing. The fruit crop
has been "killed" regularly by cold
waves In March and the chief reason
for what damage is done and which is
not exaggerated Is that the buds are
forced t>> the mild weather of Spring
anu open to such an extent that when
Jack Frost comes along with his frost
biush they are ghen a dousing of cold
wn.th ends their career. This winter
the cold weather has come at a period
which wiii hold back the development
of the buds and enable them to open
later on when reasonable weather may
be expected. Then ,too, the snow is
furnishing an abundant quantity of
moisture which will flu the earth with
water and cause springs and small
streams to (low In the Spring time.
VV here the weather is hitting the farm
ers Is in the prevention of spraying in
the orchards and the fertilizing and
preparation of the fields for the Spring
ploughing. Some farmers have already
started to fertilize and sledges of lime,
phosphate and manure are to be seen
standing at the sides and even in the
midst of fields which are being
spotted" while the enow remains deep
on the ground.

Slating of Lewis Appears to Have

Dissatisfied Bull Moosers In Phila

no secret of his dissatisfaction. "I

In this city there is a disposition to

beneficiary in the way of fat office as

is in the naming of Dr. Swift because
