By DAVID F. SDIPSON former AtfflocUte Justlc-A of the State Supreme Court I remember when I was city attor ney of Minneapolis and William Henry Eustis was mayor and I remember when the mayor choked off a couple of fake reformers in short order. The mayor was having his troubles at the tlmo for gambling was rife all over the west and it was almost impossible to get any public support for action against the gamblers.

Along came a couple' of reformers one day, holy men who prayed loudly and vociferously in a dowrrtown hall and held a regular weeping and wail ing revival meeting. Revival meetings were not unusual In those days and many of them were a good Influence in the community but these two men out-prayed and out- sang and out-revived all the rest. They set up headquarters In this hall and when they had got the crowd worked up to a proper pitch they at tacked gambling and the gambling crowd with everything that was in them. That was all right. It was just what the city officials had to have to create public sentiment against the evil.

But apparently attendance began to fall off and they had to do something to stimulate it for they opened up an attack on Mayor Eustis, loudly proclaiming that he was Jn with the gamblers and getting a takeoff. I suppose they had found It true in so many places that they couldn imagine any place where it was not true. Well, they made their charges after due announcement that something was coming off. Tho crowd was electrified as they had promised It would be. And then a man stood up.

This electrified the crowd still more for 4he man was Mayor Eustis him self. At first he didn't say anything. He just stood there for a minute and looked at these fellows. Then he told them who he was and then he demanded their proof. Apparently this was entirely unex pected for they held a hurried confer, ence and then announced that proof would be presented at a meeting a week away.

Well, you can imagine that there was a whopper of a meeting the next week. It looked like all Minneapolis was there. The crowd was agog in the strictest sen.se of the word for tho proof that was-lo be offered. It was noticed that Mayor Eustis had a place well down in front. Wall, the crowd was a little disap pointed when the first evangelist got up and apologized to the mayor for the charges that he had mudc.

The second man, hewever, came up to expectations. His name was John Quinn and he declared he had been a gambler and had reformed and had taken to the business of evangelist to undo the wrong he had done. He de clared ho knew personally that the mayor was implicated In the gambling games and profited from them. Mayor Eustis got up. "I have two telegrams I want to Vead," he said.

"One Is from a New York newspaper and it tells how this man, John Quinn, if thut la his name, eloped with the 16-ycar-old daughter of our other friend here on the platform. And the other one Is from William PInkerton of the Pinkerton Detective agency and It says: "John Quinn served term In i'n- diana penitentiary tor selling told Mayor Eustis then stalked out of the building amid the cheers of the whole crowd and the two reformers left hurriedly by a rear door.

BROADWAY DINS MORE 1675 39c 9cn The co-operative movement In Russia, 11,000,000 strong before the war and called the hope of the Russian people by Pitrlm Soroklne, organizer of some of the cultural branches of the movement irt Russia and now vis-' ltlng professor of the sociology of rev-olutlon at the University of Minnesota, Is having a rebirth in the land of the plains, Prof. Soroklne said today. Latest advices from the soviet government which have reached Prof. Soro-klne indicate that the bolshevlsts have abandoned their policy of annihilating the movement as Incompatible with the communistic regime, and that it again has sprung up at dozens of places throughout the country. "Co-operative movements have had a checkered career In my country," said Prof.

Soroklne. "They found their beginning In the first part of the twentieth century and have grown to immense proportions in spite of the opposition of the czar before the war. Took Social Functions "They were extremely successful and had branched out to take In so. clal functions toward which the movement throughout the world had made no motion. They had established an academy for the peasants that bade fair to be greater than the Imperial academy, and had taken over the bet ter part of the economic functions in many of the provinces." Probably the growth of co-operation in Russia was the most hopeful thing that ever happened there, according to Prof.

Soroklne, as the movement waB supplying an economic system rather than supplanting one, "The fact that we had no efficient means of economic distribution in the American sense of the word, made it easier for the system to get a firm start," Prof. Soroklne said, Established through long, intelligent toil on the part of people who really had the peasants' welfare and enlightenment at heart, the co-operative system was torn down by the Bolshevists for no reason other than that it didn't fit into their theory of communism and the dictatorship of the proletariat. Soviet System. Fails "Communistic theory holds that all things must be controlled by the state, and they are opposed to groups of people who do not bear the namo of the state having group means for supplying themselves cheaply. They rooted out the successful co-operative system to place a state controlled system that wat- and is an abysmal failure in Its place," he stated.

The name "Cooperative Society" was retained but the societies were as divorced from co-operation as Is private enterprise. Predicting that with the "new economic policy," that has been forced on the Bolshevikl government because of the utter failure of communistic theory will come the revival of the co-operative movement in Russia, Prof. Soroklne said that he thought the movement would become the controlling system of distribution in Russia in the future.
