When Public Servants Flail An Accuser— Nothing i.s ninth more inslnidivc Ulan to wnlch (he violent indigimtimi which a public rcrvant (tispl.iy.s wlien he has been aecnsed of wrong-doing. ' A line illustration of this is ihe spectacle which the Kentucky legislature recently ban been making of itself. Someone nul lung ago wrole a letter to the editor of tlic Louisville Courier-Journal, hinting ruther broadly that certain legislators had been more or less corrupt in disposal of a certain bill. The letter was printed over the .signature, "One who believes in hone.st government, a member of (lie iiuiiso of Ucprescntiitives." Instantly a storm broke loose. The legislators stood \\]t on their hind legs, tore tlieir hair, drew (heir claymores and sounded the tocsin. Were they limiting for their dishonored colleagues, that they might expel them? Not at all. They wnre bunting the man who had made the accusation, so that they might have his scalp. They haled before the legislative bar the.Louisville editor, Vance Armentrout, ;md demanded that he give them the name of (he letter writer. Avmen- trout invited them tu go and climb ;i tree. They bad him jailed, and lie •• got out: on ii writ of habeas corpus. They lined him ?25; he refused to pay, and suggested (hat they sue him and sec how far they would get. They asked President Koosevelt to fire the editor's boss, who is ambassador to the court of St. James. Suppose, now, that UK.- cdiiuv |,; U i given them the name uf this letter writer. \Vhat would have happened 1 .' Something like this, probably. * ' * • The letter writer would have been called in and questioned: "Did you ever, with your own eyes, see a legislator accept a bribe? Did you ever, yourself give money to a legislator? Have you affidavits, documents, sworn witnesses to prove your charges?" And whun he admitted that he had none of these things, they would have called attention Jo their innocence and denounced him as a rumor-monger and a nit-wil. , One would think (hat :l legislative body accused of corruption would hasten to demonstrate il.s innocence. One would think it, that i.s, if one didn't know Auicrkvui legislators. Their instant read ion to such a charge i.s to have HI [heir .u'cnwr and detach his seal]). They never seem lo rcali/e that a legislative body which is alway,-, unmistakably, working honestly and intelligently for the public interest .is never in any danger of being besmireli- ed by irresponsible miid-slingers. — I truce Cation. The Brain's Extremes It is very n-ldoni, thank heaven, that there is anylhing in (he newspapers ([Hite an horrible as the slory of Hie Akron business man who threw his baby son into (he furnace "because the Lord lold me lo.'' One hardly needs to await the report of the psychiatrists lo know that the man was deranged. Me just had t-omo home from a hospital, after being hurt in an auto accident: he had been "talking strangely"; a friend had asked the man's wife to hide hj s gujj, if lie had one, rearing that he might do something des|wt/e. lUit no one foresaw, or could have foreseen, the- frightful thing that he actually did do. What a strange and terrifying Iliing the working of Hi,, human brain is, after all! Let a bit of bone press lightly on the brain somewhere—and a kind, intelligent man is turned into a liend incarnate. Derange a few brain L e]|s—;uitl all the graces of mind and heart cancel themselves, .somehow, and leave only a thing of horror. Cause Of Inefficiency Every so often we are told llial'lhe United .Status in-eds a Scotland Yard— which, to be sure, is undeniably, true. The latest plea comes from Governor KI.V of .Massachusells, who lias asked the .state, legislature lo draw up a 1'lan for .such institution. What we usually I'ail lo remember, however, i.s the fact, that it is not so much new police machinery that is needed as a new spirit on tin- part of the olfice-holdcrs to whom tlie iwlice ultimately are responsible. Scotland Vai-d would t'unclion no better than (he Chicago police if Scotland Yard were subjected lo the same kind of political pulling ami hauling that afflicts the Chicago force. liel'ore our polite ,<y.siems wiil .stand comparison wilh Hie London system, we must divorce Diem from politics. And that, considering everything, will take .some doing. As f rlr as foreign |iolicy is conccriu-d.
