Jay-lValfyers Because the defenseless- pedestrian is at the mercy .of erratic motorists and lias been considerably bumped around by them, the altitude is gradually taking hold thai he can do uo wrong.•• He gets the public's sympathy every time. in a large middle western city the other day a traffic officer was roundly berated by it noon-day crowd for arresting a man who delicti arrest, after ( darting across the street against the signal, "fno i^liceman, jostled and jeered, was made a laughing stock. None would have considered it extraordinary if a motorist had been penalized for the .same offense. Nor did the crowd seem to realise that the jaywalker might have been hit and that the policeman was acting for his safety. The pedestrian, for his own security, should consent to be disciplined by the same rules which govern motorists at crossings. There is such a thing as sparing jay-walking enforcements and spoiling the pedestrian. - OUT OUR WAY --. Passing of Coal Mine Police '". " Liberal-minded men and women ~ throughout the country will be glad ~ to learn that Governor Pirn-hot of "^ Pennsylvania plans to cancel tho cum" missions of all 'coal and iron irolice- men" eO'celive July 1. The move should have been made many years ago, but even though tardy it is extremely welcome. The coal and iron policemen, of course, are private guards employed by Hie big coal and iron companies who are actually sworn in as officer:! of the law. Obviously, such a system is open to tcriibli! abuses; two years ago a miner was killed by the coal-and-iron plug-uglies of Allegheny county, and it proved impossible to convict his (|iiasi-oli'icial murderer. Governor I'inchot says thai, state police, after July J, will be used to prevent disorders around mining or manufacturing properties in case of strikes. That is as it should be. There never wns any excuse for Iho coal and iron police, and no one should regret their departure.
