He has repealed that pledge twice since his inauguration—and today we read in Washington dispatches that he has definitely refused to allow his name to be considered for the appointive post. For a man" of Governor Futrell's training and life.long apprenticeship to the judiciary, this is a sacrifice few men would actually make. Thinking first of his state, he stands higher than ever toGay in the estimation of his fellow men. And whatever this paper has said in criticism of some of the men with whom he has surrounded himself, we pay him this tribute as a man. XXX The Arkansas Gazette this morning adopts the editorial view this paper expressed several weeks ago on safe, guarding tax monies entrusted to county officials with surety-company instead of personal bonds. Meanwhile, the Gazelle lakes note of the fact that Chancellor Dodge of Pulaski has ruled unconstitutional one of the county bond relief bills, on Ihe ground that it Is local legislation, which is forbidden to the General Assembly. If the supreme court upholds this contention, then Governor Fu- trcll's failure to veto such bills will have no effect. On the other hand, only another session of the legislature can properly safeguard, coumy iunds by changing Ihc law wilh respect lo bond requirements. 'XXX The- public, which views policemen chasing a carload or desperadoes armed with a machine-gun with all the zest of n horse-race, is.muchly interested in the fact that just as the Hope upp.roavhoti.CiKaid ;. car last week one of their tires." blew out. The tire was supposed to \>e all righl. The most reliable explanation of the disaster is furnished by Officer Bricc Arnctl. Mr. Arnett says: "Yes sir, when" approaching some bandits armed with a machine-gun you jusl nalurally get heavier, squat down—and the tire blows out."

McLean ever since he purchased the most troublesome jewel in the world, back in 1912, are ended. great blue and white stone, which aO French traveler brought back from India in 1683, nobody has ever heard from it. Death, violence, loss have followed in the trail of the diamond through half a dozen generations. Whoever owned it can expect trouble, tragedy and anguish. But McLean bought it anyway. Now with her fortune gone, his wife is putting it up for security in an attempt to save the Washington Post/ 3 a heritage for her sons, John H.. McLean, 111, and Edward B. McLean. Paid ?300,000 for Gem Not to have enough money to finance their business and social interests was the last catastrophe which either McLean or his wife ever expected. As the son of John R. McLean, owner of the Cincinnati Enquirer and Washington Post, he was an heir to the father's fortune, estimated at anywhere from ?40,000,000 to $10000,000. Evelyn Walsh was the daughter of Tom Walsh, who had made millions out of his Colorado gold mines. More than 20 years ago McLean Carticr.

Therefore, he stipulated that if any member of his family shoutS die within the next six month the jeweler must take the stone back and refund his money. Six months passed. No one died. Mrs. McLean first wore the ill-fated jewel at a lavish reception for the Russian ambassador and Mmp. Bakhmeteff. Tragedy Takes Child But the shadow of the gem was lengthening.

B. Crimm reVival party Sunday night following the denunciation of regular clergymen by the Rev. Mr, Crimm, "cowboy evangelist." In withdrawing the co-operation he had originally given the evangelist, Dr, J. L. Cannon, First Methodist pastor, issued the following statement Monday 'morning: "When !n the course' of human®- One Suspect OfficersWithhtold] Pending RITCHIE CO. events, it becomes necessary for one preacher to dissolve the spiritual bands which have 'connected him with another, and to assume among the spiritual powers , of the community the separate and equal station to which the laws of the Bible and Bible's God entitle him, .a decent respect to the opinions of others requires that he shall declare the cause, or causes, which impel him'to the separation." As the pastor of the ^ Methodist church _in the ;city of Hope, I "have always '"gone tne limit in ministerial courtesy to others in the same work, regardless of eclesiastical lines. Particularly is .this true of those ministers who claim to be evangelists; Several times I have incurred the disapproval of my own church by this liberal disposition on my part. But of this I need not now speak. • When the present evangelistic effort was announced for Hope, I could not help recalling : the travesity on evan j gelism we had in this community last year. But without debate, I cancelled more than half the services of my church in favor of the present program going on in our town. From the first of these services which I have been'able to attend, the evangelist has been very free in his criticism of preachers. This is a,free country, and freedom of speech is one of the privileges guaranteed to everyone by our government. But When one doctor turns loose in indiscriminate denunciations of the medical profession, he not only damages other doctors, but he is likely to preach, himself out of a clientele, and .if he is^able'to live by his "profession at all, he will do so by feeding upon the clients of others. But these are not the reasons'why I am now withdrawing my further support to the present evangelistic effort going on in .Hope.- 1 'care very little what other preachers think of my real, or supposed, weaknesses. I have many. " .Now 'to 'come to the point. Last Sunday night while preaching on the subject "What Is the Matter With the Church," the_ evangelist took occasion to condemn in most severe 7 terms, the work' of our Sunday Schools. We admit that our 'Sunday Schools could be improved. But they are copied and built up after the most approved methods .of- teaching. We haye not attained the ideal yet. .But that is no reason for wholesale condemnation of the teaching staff, the officers,'or the (Continued pn Rogers to Speak on History of Jews Will Openir& P. W.

Ragon Is Probable Choice for Judge Congressman May Get Ap pointment Futrell Apparently Refused to Consider LITTLE ROCK— (£>)—Reports have been current here for several week that Congressman Ragon was to receive the appointment as federa judge of Western Arkansas to fill the vacancy created by the death a yea ago of Judge F. A. Youmans of For Smith. • The name of ,Vincent M. Miles, o Fort Smith, also is mentioned as among those under consideration. Reports concerning Ragon have gained such credence in political circles that already several prospective candidates to .succeed him as congressman have been mentioned, and there is a possibility that the State Democratic Central Committee which meets May 13 may,have before it the question of calling a primary or convention to nominate a congressional candidate. Among those being mentioned as possible candidates for Ragon's congressional seat are State Senator Robert Bailey, of Russellville; Lieutenant Governor Lee Cazort; National Committeeman Brooks Hays; and Prosecuting Attorney Carl E.

The selection is reported to lie between Ragon, Vincent M. Miles, former national committeeman, and Will Steele, Texarkana, with Ragon favored. The report; lhat the appointment now lies between Ragon, Steele and Miles is regarded here as definitely allaying the widely-circulated report a few weeks ago that Governor Futrell was to receive it. This report first sprang up befoca Governor Futrell took office, and at that time he said he would not resign the governorship to accept any other public office.
