MONDAY EVENING, . DECEMBER 3, 1923 FOURTEEN SIDELIGHTS ON CRAIG PROBE - 11 11 " . . Mayer Is Plaintiff, Prosecutor, Jury and Judge in. Case . 1 - Against Comptroller. THE PITTSBURGH PltES? Rv Lowell Mellett. i Hew York, Dec. X ' Sixty day. Call the next cast,'1 It waa this sentence pronounced fc Federal Judge Julius M. Mayer upon City Comptroller Charles L-CkmlC that Ural started New Yorkers im Inquiring seriously Into the power and- possible abuse of powers by tke federal courts. The sentence waa ' flven 15 months after the publication of a letter by Craig which Judge ' Mayer held to be in contempt of his ; eowt. The city had taken some In-teres In the matter during the 13 months, but not a great deal. It had rwd of the citation for contempt and ," had watched the procession of legal delaya that intervened before Judg-meaU waa pronounced and the aen- taace fixed. -' With the verdict of guflty and the rder committing Craig to a New . Jersey jail for two months, the city suddenly awoke to what had happened, It was this: A Judge i had charged a city official with an of-Tenae against himself, had directed ' his prosecution by the district attor-i ey, had heard the evidence, had ren.

A Stubborn Cough Loosens Right Vp nil maJ resadr Is a Waa ler fee ak-k rwalu. Easily , aad cheaply ) M IH H I'M H Here is a home-made syrup which knillions of people have found to be the most dependable means of break-insr up stubborn coughs.

To make this splendid cough syrup, oar 2Vi ounces of Pinex into a pint bottle and fill the bottle with pla;n granulated sugar syrup and shake thoroughly. If you prefer use clarified molasses, honey, or corn syrup, , instead of sugar syrup. Either way, ' sou get a full pint a family supply of much better cough syrup than you could buy ready-made for three times the money. Keeps perfectly mad children love its pleasant taste. ' ..Pinex is a special and highly con-eentrated compound of genuine Norway pine extract, known the world over for its prompt healing effect ppon the membranes.

A series of proceedings Impossible to any citizen of the United States not a judge. Impossible even to the President of the United States. The one man had, been complainant, prosecutor, Jury and judge. New York began asking, "la this Justice?" It proposes to ask the question of congress at the coming session and to Insist upon an answer. The whole United States is vitally interested in the answer. This is particularly true since the U. S. Supreme court haa upheld Judge Mayer's course. . . ' The remedy for the present one-man plalntlff-prosecutor-jury-judge process seems to He in legislation to provide for jury trial of contempt cases. Another ' suggestion is that after one judge has cited a man for contempt another judge should try the case. This, however, does not find a great deal of favor. One judge is likely to be reluctant to decide against another judge in a matter of that kind. A judge trying a case which he himself had Instituted might be expected to resolve more doubts in favor of the accused man than would one of his fellow judges. But the jury trial Idea, as applied to contempt cases, meets with favor even among th judges themselves. Whfle the present issue remains to be disposed of, the federal Judges in this city are unwilling to express themselves. Privately," however, they are willing to talk. Some of them are agreed that it would be an excellent thing tf, when a Judge cites a man for contempt of court, the case were to be trieM before a Jury, with another judge on the bench. They express some doubt as to the con stitutionality of a law requiring this, however. Perhaps, they say, the courts could not waive the "inherent powers of the Judiciary" at the behest of an act of congress. Lawyers, off the bench, are less impressed with these "Inherent powers." The fed eral courts, aside from the U. S. Supreme court, are wholly creatures of congress, say these lawyers. One thing seems certain. With the present roar of wrath echoing through the canyons of .Manhattan because of the Craig sentence, Judge Mayer would be a lot happier if the verdict had been found by a Jury of 12 citizens and the sentence Imposed by some other judge. These ' contempt punishments really are embarrassments that fed eral judges would really be glad to escape," one federal judge told me. DISCOVERY OF BONES ENDS NINE-YEAR HUNT FOR MISSING CHILD New Totx, Dee. 1 Little Jimmy Glass was returned last night to his home in Jersey City dead. The, fa mous search, which began almost nine years ago in a remote village In Pike county, Pa, and the trails of which had traversed 48,000 miles into many lands, terminated yesterday where it began, in Greeley, Pa., only a mile and a half from where the 4-year-old boy last waa seen alive. Bones found Saturday in a thick ness of dark woodland were positively identified by the boy's father, Charles Glass, as those of the youngster, whom individuals and gypsy bands had been accused of kidnaping and quest of whom took searchers into South' America, Porto Rico and Europe. The peculiar formation of the dou ble-crowned skull was sufficient' to convince the father he had found his boy. But there was additional evi dence in the shoes, which still showed distinctly the name of the brand, and there were still the brass snaps of the tan overalls the child had worn and shreds of his hickory suspenders. Both Mr. and Mrs. Glass tonight expressed relief at knowing the fate of their son. Mrs. Glass recounted her thousands of miles of futile travels, her scrutiny of scores of boys and her constant hope and belief that her son might be found alive. HITS COCONUT WITH PISTOL: IS KILLED New Castle. Pa., Dee, 1 An attempt to crack a coconut with the butt end of a loaded revolver resitted In the death of William Kennedy, aged 20, of 31 Shaw st, yesterday. Kennedy, apparently thinking that the weapon was not loaded, grasped the barrel and began hammering on the thick shell. The revolver, a .22 cali bre, discharged a bullet which struck the man In the abdomen. He died an hour later In the Shenango Valley hospital. KAEDNEGE SOCIETY . ' MONTHLY MEETING.
