Law and Lawlessness Our esteemed contemporary, the Evening Appeal, endorses the mayoral candidacy of John H- Lyle, Chicago's hard-boiled municipal judge, whose claim to fame is established upon his practice of clapping alleged gnngstci'.s and racketeers into jail as vagrants and holding them under bonds of fifty or a hundred thousand dollars- Judge Lyle has won for himself a good deal of notoriety. It is even barely possible that he has made n contribution to tho improvement of .conditions in Chicago. Bui he is on the wrong track. The methods ho has adopted will never attain for Chicago law the respect that is the lirsl essential to stamping out'the very evils he is lighting. Officials who fight crime with lawless methods are the allies o.T lawlessness. Their example provides justifma- tion for disregard of law. \Vfifth Judge Lyle obtains the arrest of a imuduvcr, an extortionist, a liquor baron "an u charge of vagrancy he merely liuikes public confession of abject failunC-oSi-' the part of the agehcia's-to vyhViili'-tf.i] 1 -- - forcement of IftW-iu (iulegated^Wljuii-li*;' • Jiolds these oiitkvwjujti -ji.ivl;-.iift^V'•$'!'Ofe"' 000 bond with no ^tl^T5ge-'aga'in.$.t : tllein but that of vagrancy he' .-nde.s.-.i-ti'ijlfh- shod over the fuiidanicntal{:i'iw i i»il- ; ic3 of the American constitut;i.yy ; .-'i..'V In no country in the woilt'l. : tki. this legal rights of the man accii£e;<l/<>[.;ii vio- • lation of the law rccolve-tlie^qV'uflulou.S consideration thaC,-:iB given*efjjfein in.

SIDE GLANCES Liquidators For all this scribe knows about him, Sam J. Wilson may be just Hie man to bo entrusted with the liquidation of the American Exchange Trust company. The trouble is we don't know anything about his qualifications in that direction. He may be the best possible appointment, but most Arkansas people know him only ns a member of tho stale highway commission and a politician very devoted to the present state administration. There is tragedy enough in the closing of a bank under any circumstances- When liquidating agents arc chosen for political reasons, rather than for their ability, losses arc likely to be compounded. There has been some experience along that line in the past. We don't know the motives that prompted the appointment of Mr- Wilson- But wo arc quite certain that selection of a man less active iwlilical- ly would have been the means, if not of obtaining more efficient adminislni- • tion of the bank's affairs, at least of avoiding some rather pointed criticism- The Windmill Cuba M.

The other conditions with! which mothers arc especially in-1 tercsted are scarlet fever,] measles, typhoid fever, whooping i cough, and Infantile paralysis. i Scarlet lever is not nearly soj common a condition as formerly, < j and Us severity Is apparently on 1 I the decline. Hence, it is advised that children he Immunized. against this disease only when • there Is likelihood of an epidemic' or when the child has been ex- j posed to the disease by contact; with Kpmeone who has it. i In the case of measles, a serum \ taken from those who have re-'. I covered from the disease confers i j Immunity. Here again it is not'. possible to vaccinate the entire \ community, and it is probably not ' advisable to attempt to , protect j the child by this method' unless j some other child In the vicinity.! has developed the disease and it j is exposed. Evidence is accumulating to' indicate that children muy be pro- ; teeted against Infantile paralysis! by inoculation of scrum from l someone vliu has recovered. Here . also the protective measure should | be available for use in times of' epidemic or exposure, but not giv-', en as routine. i The vast majority of people arc ! now protected against typhoid ! fever by tlie sanitation of water, j sewage and fcod supplies. Vac- j clnation against typhoid fever should be reserved for those wlio are going to travel in places' where sanitation is not well de-1 veloped. ' The evidence that vaccines and' vaccination for whooping cough protect against the disease is not such ns to warrant the use- of this measure ns a routine. It should be left to the individual physician to decide whether or not H is to be used in any certain case.
