I . , - Big Tim " Murphy, convicted of conspiracy to' rob the United States malls, was granted a new stay of sentence on Feb. 15 to allow an appeal to ,the United States Supreme court, which convenes Feb. 19. The crime of which he stands convicted -.. was committed nearly two year ago. It was the theft of some 8396.000 from the mails at the Dear' bern street station. Murphy was arrested and indicted in that case after arrest and indictment in the previous March in connection with the Pullman $100,000 mail rob. hers'. lie wal released on bonds in the Dearborn F tat on ease on July 27, 1921. On Sept 8, 1921, trial was postponed to October. It resulted la - conviction on Nov. 9, 1321. On Nov. 14 Judge , , Landis denied him a new trial and sentenced him to six years in federal prison and to pay a fine - ' of $30,000. The next day he obtained release on : bonds pending appeal to the United States Court 1 , of Appeals. lie occupied the time by defending himself from a charge of conspiracy to murder Policeman Terence Lyons in a laborwar, and beat that case on , Aug. 10, 1922. On Oct. Z. 1922, he was arrested on suspicion in a liquor robbery case, and on Nov. 2, 1922, was discharged in a disorderly conduct case, but those are unrelated incidents. . On Jan. 2 of this year the federal court trimmed two years and 810.000 off Ids, sentence in the mail rubbery case. On Jan. 11 of this year he obtained a thirty day stay of execution to per-it appeal to the United States Supreme court. . On Feb. 12 the stay expired and again there was talk that he would be on the way to Leavenworth 's . before night. Ile is not. Instead a new stay is . allowed to permit the appeal. There is no telling when, if ever, he will go to prison. , That is justice as is. It seems to be all for the . . convicted criminal, and not at all for society. It ! puts two years, or more, between the crime and the punishment. In the meantime, Murphy has , been arrested on various charges from murder to spitting on the sidewalk. The case is confused in the popular mind. No doubt many persons already , . , are declaring that Murphy is being abused and persecuted. "0, yes," they will be saying, "maybe he did let some friends hide a trunk full of money in his house years ago, but that was when he was a young man. Why keep after him all these years and send him to jail when he's old?" That sort of Justice is not just to society. It , isa't confined to Murphy's case alone. Ills ease is more or less typical. It gets the limelight because he is a spectacular character, and also because he can raise money to pay lawyers to obtain these delays. But it is a bad precedent and an encouragement to crime and to criminals. Our ,......a.---, courts need speed. not only to make punishment s a , follow quickly upon crime, but to impress crim- - - .,) ,.,0,e inals with the dangers of crime. There is little ...,, ., . danger except financial as long as criminals can keep out of Jail by legal methods. FOUR YEAR TERM IN CONGRESS. Tbe proposal to make the term of members of the house of representatives in congress four years instead of two is sound. we believe. The short term means an election to a campaign for reeiectiOn. If a man is elected in November. be may not take his seat until a year from the following December and he is up to his neck in efforts to be reelected eleven months from then. Thereafter has life is one election after another. Some of the old timers in secure districts may not be much bothered. but certainly the congressional usefulness of the precarious members ,is not increased by the shadows of dubious campaigns. A good congressman is entitled to the peace of the longer term and the country ',yin not be ruined if the bad ones get It too. We do not want a congress barricaded behind its desk, but greater stability Is desirable. There are too many elections. Too much campaigning makes democracy a delirium. JUNKETS. A Taret,A-st correspondent of the Washington bureau says that "congressional junkets are break-ire out like an epidemi3." We are glad to hear it. We believe emphatically in junkets and cannot recall any that we did not believe worth the money. 'nig, we admits is contrary 4.cs the opinion of reform associations and critics of public affairs, who look upon tripe at public expense with suspicion and disfavor. But that attitude is penny wisdoms We do not mind a congressman getting some pleasure and relaxation at public expense if be also gets first band knowledge, aod especially 1 he acquires a wider horizon. This apolles also to the executive department. Our correspondents among the four or five trips thus far planned. lists one under the direction of the department of war from New Yerk to Alaska, via I'anama. That is highly desirable. So is another trip to Panama and the West Indies under the direction of the navy department and other trips of congressmen to the canal, over the lakes to the gulf waterway route, and to the northwest to investigate timber and reforestation conditions.. We are for all of these and for any that will broaden the legislative and executive eflicials' viewpoint We would add to the list, not subtract we bellwre a trip to south America and to Japan and China, via Hawaii. would be well worth the lxpense. NVe believe members of the foreign rela tions committees might well go to Europe if they made a comprehensive trip and did their own obstrving. In short. if we are to raise our legislation and our policies alcve the level of parochialism and its logrolling resultants, our legislators and our executive ollicials must travel. It is essential to their education in public service, and its expense sliculd be and must be borne by the nation. There are few investments which would pay the nation as well. A BOXING ANNOUNCEMENT. Arthur I3urrage Farwell complained to the war d ,partment that illegal prize fights were staged on the 1. S. S. Commodore, a training ship. He complained to Chief Fitzrnorris that illegal fights were allowed elsewhere in Chicago. The chief sent men to arrest the proprietor and boxing instructor of a downtown gymnasium where pugilists train for their fights. Possibly Fitzmorris wanted to make the proceed ridiculous. Anyway, he succeeded. The supposed offense was that men who watchahe eghters train pay 25 cents for the privilege of seeing boxers from the local stables in action with their sparring partners. We have said that Mr. Farwell, and thousands of the rest of us, have the inferiority complex, and for that reason there is opposition to a sport which arouses uncomfortable suggestions of incompetence. Mr. Farwell says that he is interested in law and order arid that these fights are against the law. That isn't candid. Mr. Farwell is ducking around the corner. He'd be just as much against priee fights if they were legal. he'd oppose legalization in Illinois. Our social reformers are negatives. Their Injunction is that you shall not They are quietists, but not like Buddha, who was content to preach that the introspective life was highest, but who did not ask the rajahs to pass laws requiring every Hindoo to sit on his haunches and contemplate his navel. It would not be satisfactory to the volunteer public regulators if there were a law permitting Prize fights and if prize fights were conducted with regard to the law. They would try to repeal the law. They would not be content with the privilege of remaining away from prize fights. They would compel other people to remain away. Frequently they say that their opposition is wholly to professional prize fighting and that they would encourage amateur sparring. We do not believe it. Tux TRIBUNE is trying to make arrangements for a great amateur boxing contest to be conducted with the sanction of the A. A. U. Nothing will be done or attempted of which the law does not approve. We ehail endeavor to induce as many amateur boxers as possible to enter the elimination tests in the various gymnasiums and clubs and bring together in the finals in some central hall of large seating capacity the best boys and men in the various divisions. We think that there will be as much action, if not as much skill, as in any professional match, especially if the finals bring two fine heavyweights together. Every precaution will be taken to prevent the matching of fighters not physic-ally fitted for the game. There is an element of risk in boxing, more in amateur thart professional. We realize that some one may be hurt. There is risk in most games which youth likes, in swimming, boating, skating, football, ice hockey, etc. There is a possible ha7ard in a boxing tournament, but so also is there in fiumonia, automobile driving, and poison whisky. If there is a way of inviting the athletic youth of Chicago to a boxing tournament, Tux TRIBUNE will do it. ,9 SELECTION OF ALDERMEN. For eight years Chicago has had a council which, regardless of imperfections, was the best part of city hall government. Now the chances of getting a good mayor are excellent and we hope is is not the city's bad luck to handicap the next administration with an inferior council. That might throw a wrench into the machinery for city improvement. Citizens in the various wards should 'watch their votes in the aidermanic primaries. Editorial of the Day THE REAPPORTIONING OF THE SENATE DISTRICTS. Free translation from Sonntagpost (German). When the new state constitution which had been proposed for Illinois was repudiated last fall with an overwhelming majority, one of the main reasons for this opposition was the limited number of senators it had been proposed to accord to Cook county. Since then the legieleture, newly chosen last November, has met in Springfield, and one of the lime bills offered was that of Representative Elmer J. Schnackenberg to redistrict the state for the election of cenators. According to the existing constitution such new apportionment is to be ic.ade every ten years, in accordance with the shifts In popuiatiOn; tern the legislature has for twenty-two years failed to comply with its duty, for the same reason which is responsible for the attempt to limit our county under the new conetitution, namely the fear down state of a political preponderance of Cook county. This apprehension may not be entire:y without foundation; still nothing can possibly justify such a violation of the uniform representation which all citizens of the state, according to the constitution, are to enjoy in the legislative body. It is after all no more than right ark proper that the majority of the population is to dominate politically, at least as long as the democratic, principle is recognized to govern In our republic. Even if the inhabitants of the open country are afraid of the urban population of Chicago and its neighborhood it is still a plain wrong for them to force their will on the metropolis against the outspoken rule laid down in the constitution. For over two decades have the legislators failed to perform the duty imposed on them by the fundamental law of the tate, yet it seems that the citizens of Cook county have no redrees at this moment except to hone for the success of Schnackenberg's bill. Or does anybody serinusly belleee that it would improve conditions if some resolute citizen wOuld refuse to recognize laws promulgated by the present legislature? That would be anarchimze but it would be easy to End terms just as bad for the dereliction of duty of which our lawgivers have heretofore made themseives guilty. . THE CAEUYON.

COMBINING BUSINESS WITH PLEASURE. From the Chariton, Ia., Leader via Frank Willey. " How," asked a stranger down in the Missouri hills, " do you manage to plant that steep hillside? Seems to me you'd be in danger of falling off?" "I can set right here in my door and plant it," said the native. "How?" "Put the corn In a shotgun and shoot into that ground up there." "And how do you get the corn down when it is ready to gather?" "Shoot it oft the stalks and It rolls down," said the native. "I can't see," continued the stranger, "how you ever get the corn out of here." " That's the easiest part of it." said the farmer, " we make it into gray mule and fight it out."

Coax-NKr. NOBLE WORDS AND FITLY SPOKEN. R. H. L.: Out in the wildest part of the wilds of western 'Wisconsin, where Bob La Follette created the heavens and the earth and the tobacco pool, and busted the Copenhagen trust, I heard a lecturer the other night say: "And what was the first thought of the American soldiers when they landed in France and knelt on the sands of those far off shores with their faces turned far across the rolling waves to where the home land lay? It was nobly and beautifully expressed when the armrs, peerless leader, the gallant Pershing, with hands upraised and tears streaming down his cheeks, exclaimed, 1La Follette, we are here!'"

IN Ilavana Spanish women now play jai alai. This modification of the old game of " Pe Iota" has long been a favorite game for men. The game I s a cross between hand ball and squash. The ball resembles a golf ball more than anything else. 1Thefi women play the game they use a tennis racket. Men use a basketwork hand attachment unlike any other sporting tool that I have ever seen. In playing the game the side Wafting the play drives the ball against a wall and the opposing side strikes it on the rebound, on either the fiy or the first bounce, and drives it against the wall. Just as in hand ball, the side failing to drive the ball against the wall loses the point. , The length of the court is 210 feet and its width 16 feet. The height of the end wall is 39 feet 3 inches. The ball must bounce back at least 43 feet to be in play. Necessarily, this means the ball must be a good deal livelier than is the ball used in hand ball. As compared with hand ball, jai alai requires a good deal more sprinting back and forth. Since the bounces are so much longer, the quickness and agility required are less than in hand ball. Nor is there the same premium for great strength in the arms. The action of the body required is rather more like that of tennis than that of hand ball. I should say that playing jai alai is decidedly less strenuous work than is playing handball. The skill in estirnating where the ball will reach on the rebound, how it will rebound, and setting Into just the right position to take it is greater than in either handball. squash, or tennis. The muscle power used and the exertion required are within the limits of a game suited to women. Few women can play hand ball and not very many can play squash. I was told that Cuban women have not taken up the game as yet, and that may be a credit to their conservatism, but that is all that can be said for them. WI ltn young, the Cuban woman is very attractive, but years spoil her charms without much delay. There is not much matana about the way a Cuban woman takes on fat and becomes soft. When It comes to that, tomorrow sits in the lap of today. Of course, the Cuban belle wishes to be attractive next week as well as this. Perhaps she will gain this end by playing jai alai. But Cuba has no monopoly on soft, fat, tabby ladies. Perhaps some young-old ones nearabouts might like to try a game of jai alai. FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL BOY. J. L.

Chicago, Feb. 14To the Legal Friend of the People.Sir: In June, 1921, the man who later became my son-in-law, was divorced in a western state with the restriction in the decree that he should not remarry within six months. He came to Illinois at once and in about seven months wee married to my daughter, a resident of this state. The marriage took place in Indiana to avoid the Illinois restriction against remarriage within twelve months. They still reside in Illinois, but my daughter has been compelled to leave her husband on acount of ill treatment. -What I am anxious to learn is, could she obtain a divorce, probably owing to the marriage having taken place in Indiana to avoid the Illinois law? My son-in-law always was so artful in his cruelty that it would be practically impossible to obtain any confirmatory testimony of his studied ill treatment. J. C. P. If at the time of the marriage they resided In Illinois and intended to continue to retdde in Illinois, it seems probable that an annullment can be secured here. easeturdng that the western divorce was secured on one of the ground.' named in the Illinois statute.

EL, Feb. 12.Wilmette recently passed a zoning ordinance for the protection of property owners. However, very little or no protection has been given to people living at the west residential district of Wilmette. Heavy auto trucks of fifteen to forty ton capacity, mostly overloaded, pass through the residential portion of the west side of Wilmette at all hours, day or night. at a terrific speed, cutouts wide open, blowing shrill siren whistles. These trucks shake the very foundation of houses along the streets, causing cement foundations to burst. plaster to fall off ceilings, dishes to rattle on the sideboard. Untold damage to streets and property is done every day. The president and the board of trustees of Wilmette were duly notified and made acquainted with the evil and nuisance, but neither the president nor the board of trustees has taken action of any kind. Soon our streets will be made impassable and torn up by these heavy auto trucks. Who. then. will pay for the new paving? The police department has the opportunity to arrest and prosecute these noise offenders and lawless elements almost at any time. but shut their eyes to the existent evil. Have we no state law to get after these offenders? 11. IL THE LANDLORD'S HEATING PROBLEM. Chicago, Feb. 11. Shields writes that the landlords have been favored by a mild winterit isn't such a favor, as during a mild winter nearly if not quite the same amount of coal is used as during a severe winter. The reason Is that In mild weather the tenants open the windows and leave the steam turned on, and the landlord heats the outside of the building as well as the inside, whereas In severe weather the tenant keeps the windows closed and the landlord heats- only the inside of the building. Sixty dollars' worth of coal lasted less than two weeks during thitment mild weather. 1,011D. AUTO ACCIDENTS NOT DUE TO SPEED ALONE. Chicago, Feb. 13.This morning we read Speed Claims Twenty-third Child Life," while we are told the truck driver was going slow enough to " swerve " his car. A published list of last year's auto deaths, with the cause as determined after Investigation, should prove inter. esting. Why all this harping on " speed " ? Many drivers go too fast In the wrong place, but, incidentally, the only real speed merchants I have encountered in 41,000 miles driven on Chicago's streets inside three years are the newspaper wagons. But they are careful drivers and seldom cause trouble though they break every known traffic law and regulation consistently. To my mind, the real trouble is the non-enforeement of the laws, which makes most everyone careless of all regulations. and, above all. the fact that anyone is permitted to drive a ear, added to which is the probable fact that no driver of a horse-drawn vehicle thinks that any laws were ever made for him. How many traffic officers pay the least attention to bright lights? how many truck driver concede a business car any right to exist? How many horse drivers pay attention to street stops? And where is the system that gives a well intentioned driver any redress or any place he can regi:ter an honest protest? And on top of this the insurance companies are permitted to go right along Issuing "collision " insurance, and coin-'welling those who are damaged to go into court to fight just claims at unreasonable expense and delay. Is it " speed," and, if not, why not get the real reason and keep that word out of the headlines for a well earned rest? H. S. C. .v- , k 'lptA ! WELCCAIE. OACK ro c ..., ,T H r- ,........

TARING MEN'S FASHIONS SERIOUSLY. New York. Feb. 12.Inasnmeh as you. in a news item on Feb. 2 and an editorial on Feb. 5. have misquoted me at; saying. " Suspenders will be absolutely necesary to the stylishly garbed man this !Tar." you may be somewhat interested in knowing just how far front the truth you have been led astray. As chairman of the committee On fake ions of the National Assoeiation of Merchant Toilers of America. I presented at our Detroit convention a report on fashions in which thore i but one single sentence referring' to suspend. cm Kindly note the exaet wording. After the statement that the gencral tendency among better tailors is to achieve the effect of height by designing slightly shorter Nvaistcoate and treusers Nvith the waistband slightly higher, is the following: This will necessitate. to some extent. a more liberal use of suspenders." When it. comes to wearing what you will, when you will, Mr. Editor. you will find that the merchant tailor is your ally. You will also find that ids chief aim is to design individual clothes to exactly meet the desire of the individual. With reference to the tuxedo or dinner jacket. which you state I am trying to relegate, I quote from my report: We. as merchants. should not overlook the fact that our clientele, in the last analysis,' are the arbiters of fashion. and there is no denying the increasing popularity of the jacket among Amer-lean as well as English gentlemen. 'flea full evening dress suit is essential for evening weddings, Metal or diplomatic occasions, private danees, large format dinners and grand opera box partiel. The tuxedo jacket is now considered permissible for all other occasions, and through its great popularity It has become the accepted dress for general informal evening wear, especially since the white evening waistcoat la considered fashionable when worn with same." A. LI3COLN STA DLJNA. liIP TELE LOGAN STATUE ON ITS MOUN D. Chicago, Feb. 12.-1 read with genuim alarm that the south park board 13 co1 . templating to level the statue ot Logan. To my mind it would he not (WI the greatest mistake but at the same time the greatest crime against the ardstic and architectural effect of Grant park. Gen. Logans statue is a wonderful Piece of work. A mounted statue, according to all rules of artistic requirements, should be placed upon a mound so that Its effect should be visualized from every angle. Chicago started out to remedy the mistakes of the past. Let us not start 1)7 despoiling one of the most artietie and worthy assets of our city', I. IzBAX.
