A City Speaks Up One of (he interesting side issues in connection with the i-ncr of the nulor-. ion.-- Dillinger (fang is lliat a coniinnn- ily id last has found a way of expressing its dissatisfaction with lawyers who stand lii-lween crooks and punishment. Harry I'krponl, one of (he gangster.-, i:i hold in .jail at Lima, ()., »ji a charge of murder, lie retained as Ins counsel an attorney who also happened to he, city solicitor of Lima. And what did Hie city council ,,r Lima do but demand thai (his lawyer <eparate hiin- .•idl' at uncf from Hie cily payroll, as a penally for defending rierponl! N'ow this, probably, was an unjust and impolile thing to do. F.very accused man lias lh t - riglil to retain counsel; every lawyer has a right to lake, a case that is offered him. And yet, considering one (hing with another, it is at least easy lo uijder- sland why (lie l,i, im t ji y ci.uucil did what it did.

He knows (he Wall Street game as few men know it. He .may go broke, but a man uf Ijis kind never .stays broke. iJul the career ul' this famous speculator seems to stand a?, a kind of symbol of the whole stock market arena: a steady cycle of boom and depression, periods of great alVliiencc followed by periods of extreme liiianeial stringency.
