Top Heavy Costs Hominy afternoon- some scvimtucn raggeil-tailutl cr»|> shooters from buck in Uic woods were introduced to the.' judge in municipnl emivl. Ten of them pleaded guilty lo H cinirne of gaining and were lined ?10 and costs, nnioiinl- ing in all to somewhere bchvuon $25 and $30 apiece. The oilier seven attempted to pill up Ji defense 1ml were promptly found guilty. Their, lines were also ?10, but additional costs brought thcjr bills up to 556.65 each. Some of them, we arc told, have already gone to the county farm to work- out the ?5G.Gu. It is » fair prediction that if raking up thai much cash is the only alternative others will take the sumc route. As one who, when lie runs across a crrip game, is always strongly, tempted to join it, your editor has rather pronounced views on the mcril.s of the law wiiich makes participation in such a game a criminal oH'cnse. 1'arlicular- ly is he convinced that thcve is something very radically wrong with a system of law, or law enforcement, that smiles upon high-powered and virtually public commercial gambling, as at Hot Springs and other points not so far away, but sends a poor country boy to the work farm fur rolling dice for quarters out in the woods. But the worst part of the whole, business is the system which makes the cost bill in petty offenses the major portion "of the penally. Ou>- back woods dice shooters were charged §56.65 each. The fine was 510, the rest was "costs." These- costs arc established by law, and we arc told that the officers who handled Ihc case might have found perfectly legal ways of making the bill even bigger if they had cared to be grasping. But that does not change the fact that such cost bills are too high. The seventeen defendants were arrested at one time and place. Hut costs of the arresting oll'icers, chiefly mileage, amounting to SM.10,' were charged separately against each of the seventeen. The seven who elected to stand trial were tried together, nnd the whole business took scarcely half an hour, yet Ihc prosecuting attorney's fee of §25 was charged separately against each. Now a public official cannot properly bo condemned for collecting the fees to which the law says he is en- tilleci, but Ilial kiiul of l«w ought to be changed. If §5G.G5 is :i jnnl ]v>iml- ty for crap shooting more than $10 of it ought (o KO into lliu public treasury. If ?10 is the )>i'oi>cr pt'imUy ll'.e defendant ought not to be required lo pay $5G.Gfi. The )>oii)l of all lliis i.s thai the platform adopted recently at Hoi Springs by (lit; Democialic stale convention calls for abolition of the 'fee system of coinpuiiiiiitiiig district and county oll'icers. Let dial be done and \ve will have no more top-heavy tost bills or, if wu still have them, at least (he money will go into tho public treasury. WEDNESDAY, SKPTKJJliKK 1032 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark A Sensible Statesman Arlhur Henderson's comment on Germany's demand for military equality with her former foes sounds very miii-h like good common a;:iise. In !!)!!), as this president of the World I)i?;irmimuMil Conference points out, .the allies pledged themselves to disarm down to Germany's level. It is almost lime Hint they took some fiction to redeem that pledge—or, fail- inp; thai, grant Germany Hie righl lo itrin /up lo llicir level. -As Mr. Ilciul- er.sun remarks: "Why shouldn't the World War allies get together and recognize that what was said in llicir names in 1910 must bind them? Why .should they not publicly declare.' their intention to remove Germany's position of inferiority with all possible haste, and to restore Germany's equality in military status?" Decline of the " White Plague" Tuberculosis is vanishing in the United States and in nnolhi'r live yonr.s it will lie I'l.'is.sL'd ii.i a minor di.swise. So, at any rale, Hiiy.s Dr. Gerald B. Webb of Oolorndo in ft reccnl speech before 11 middle western medical association. Tuberculosis, as Dr. Webb points out, seems to run in cycles of nbont 100 yijiirs, and all indications r.ow point lo Ihc belief thai Ihc present cycle is on its downward swinjj. Modern methods of treat ing tuliei 1 - ciilosis, beyond a doubt, are more effective thim (hose practiced iu former Koiici-iilion.-. Yet it is odd lo realize that the prevalence of the disease seems to depend, at least in parl, on mysterious forces beyond human control. Just now it is subsiding but medical science does not piTteml lo claim all Ihe credit. There is at work, apparently, .some factor which wi> cannot yet iinder.stnml.
