Justice Steps Out, The cause of justice took a linn forward the other day, but it looks an if it may bog down kiico-dcep in legalistic mire. • Magistrate Henry Curran of Now York adjudicated a case before Him iii n nwnner thai is likely to bring litigants into court us if it were dish night. Mr. niul Sirs. James C. Lewis complained that city building operations just outside their apartment window were driving them crnxy. Magistrate Curran realized just how they felt, instructed the couple to do up the town, complete with cocktails, dinner, a show and a nijfhl iii quiet hotel. They did—to the tune of about ?B5. The bill, said the jlirisl, would bo paid by the City of New York. The city disagrees. iMcigisti'iuc CiuTiYii's decision i.s practically a brand new twist in judicial logic.. If the idea grow. 1 *, the line of outraged citizens who wiuil redress at law will please form to tho right. The magistrate probably Figured that after a siMliiig night of Broadway night clubs and hot spots, the Lewises could stand any kind of racket outside their 1 windows. Facts as The best way to beat back propaganda, says Prof. Maynaixl Knioger, of the University of Chicago, is to be armed with the facts. It is true- that persons well versort in the' real facts about a wai' or aily other issue wjll . never be deeply impressed by propaganda which disregards the truth. The fundamental difficulty is that it Is Jilmost impossible to determine, in many cases, what the true fads may be. The most effective kind of propaganda is the kind that is deftly disguised. Much of it appears to be completely logical. A speaker from another' country with (in ax or two to grind sounds sincere and unbeguiling. the newspapers today arc trying hard to present the European wars as factually as possible. They are meeting With unusual success. The American pi-ess leal-lied a thing or, two about propaganda during the last war. It does not intend to become a sucker for glib-longued misslalcmcnls in the present situation. I don't like the Build. I told them In Washington we could have only trouble with the Bund because the people of the Bund arc American citizens. With their stupid speeches they can give us only trouble.—Cupt.

In Fairness To The South Tlie ruling of (he Inlcrstnlc Commerce Commission, granting His Eotilli suljstantlally the fnlnp /i-elfhl rates as (lie North on stoves, heaters, Jurn.nccs, slone, cnst-iron ))ij)o filtliik's and certain nmmifactiircd nnd processed goods, te im nwnrd of justice, long overdue. As with so many official rulings, chief 1m- porlnncc lies lu (he precedent which IE set. Only a small part of Southern liulujilry Is covered by the list of nrllclcs whose freight rates arc p.lfcctPd, but these adjustments will Invite applications for other adjustments. The freight, rale differential, which hiis held u InrKf wall In front of Ihc products of (ho South for a gene™lion, has nl Inst been opened tip for official ovcrhnulllifi. How severely this differential hn.s hnndicap- pcd HID (lcvcloj)mcnl of the South cnn be (|iilck- ly gras|)D<l from n few fifiurcs. Frcl»h| rates on Hie Southern articles dealt with In the new ruling have been about 105 lo IliO per cent of Ihe computable rules within tlie "official IcrrKory" of the North—the area cnst of Ihc Mis-stetppi and norlli of (be Ohio and Potomac. That Is, for every dollar the Northern producer bad to pay to «ct Ills goods (o market by mil, Ihe Southern nmniifnctiirer of the same Articles bad lo liny nil Ibe \wiy from $1.05 to $1.00. But, ns n mnllcr of fuel, rules on Ibe articles embraced In'the ruling do not reveal the dll- fcrenllal al Its worst. Comparison of Irclgbl rates to the New York or Chicago markets froiu Tennessee, Alabama, Gcol-jjia, lht> Carolinas anO other Soutliern slnlcs wilh rales from "official territory 1 points to those same markets shows one gross Inequality after an- olbcr. Out of Ihc acquisition of Southern 1-ivll- roacis by (lie cast-west Itnefi of (be North—the jilrtieUlral basis of the dlfTerentlnl—came a (racte barrier within (he nation, n trade barrier such ns Ihe Federal Constlltlllon of 1707 was Itself designed to cllmlnalc. The irony ot this ruling Is Hint H look sectionalism lo teal sectionalism. For years, Ihe Inlcrslate Commerce Commission was dominated by appointees from the "official territory," who turned a cold shoulder on all appeals Ironi the South to establish freight-rate parity. The extended hearings Iii Birmingham nearly two years ngo produced a record ot shocking inequalities, and yet nothing was done. Afler Ihc rclnitln) licnflng nl UiifTalo, the ICC sat tight. Hill here, KB on'the Siiprcnie Court, change lias come wilh appolnlinenls by president nooscvcll. seeking lo make the commission more representative, Mr. Roosevelt 1ms named several Southerners, and their votes have turned the scales. On Ihe new ruling, the commission divided as follows; FOB. PARITY (61. ' ' ',->;,; Walter M. W. Sp!a\vn, appointed fron\ Texas. Marlon M. Caskle, appointed from Alabama.

CHAPTER XXII 'J^IIB room was practically unchanged since Dawson's last vlsll. Someone had made the bed, and the spread was lighlly and neatly drawn. Ara, Dawson thought. A pillow on Ihe chaise longuo indicated where she had tried to rest. He walked to the bed, lifted the miitlrcss, then turned il completely over nnd on lo Ihe door. I£ there had been a gun hidden (hero, it was certainly gone now. Dawson studied (be underside o£ (he mattress carefully, and the cover of (lie box springs. No trace o£ ;<ny outline that a revolver woufd i:ei'!aii>ly leave. Where was that gun? A slight nlise startled him. He rushed to the- door. It had sounded as it Alston's door bad been opened. There v;as no one in the hall. A glance in Alston's room, showed the old man again stretched on (he bed. "It would take a bomb lo wake him up now," Dawson said, half aloud. Deciding not lo disturb Alston, the deleclivc closed the door again, called Kronn from Ihe head of (he stairway. The patrolman came up on a run. "Keep an eye on (bis hall, ami Hie one below, loo, if you can, Krone," Dawson ordered. "Who is downstairs?" "The coroner's deputy just arrived and the coroner is wilh him. I left them wilh di Torio. Mrs. Bcnlhorno was in the living room." Dr.wson nodded and returned to the bedroom. Krone look his posl al the stairs, so that he could see bolli the upper and lower halls. In a few moments he saw Helen Bcnlhornc walk through the archway from the living room. Krone leaned out to walch her as she walked along the hall to Ihc study. Then he heard Ihe dining room door close and her footsteps died Sway. . ' • - i. J.£Ef,EN BENTKORNE watched tho coroner and his assistant al work over di Torio's body. When they took a few preliminary pictures she took care lo be well out of camera range, but when they started to lift Ihc raincoats Dawson had ordered spread over (he body, she could stand it no longer. "Do you mind if I leave now?" she asked. The coroner looked up. "No •eason for your staying. If Cifp- lain Dawson had wanted you kept :iere, he'd have said so." She lefl hurriedly. She fcncw Krone was watching >er as she passed through (he tall. She paused ut the study door, to see Ara and John talking ?arnestly. Ills i uc ] (y f ov n lcm {<, bave love, she thought, and inwardly she voiced a prayer thai (his whole affair might turn out well for (hem. The breakfast dishes were still on the dining room table. She'd have to speak to Jameson. Then she recalled that Dawson had ordered the butler and (he entire staft of servants placed under guard in Jameson's quarters afler Hie second shooling. Tiiat officer —(he Irishman was probably there loo. Sho slopped at (he refrigerator, found a pint of milk and went on to the rear entry. There was a coat hanging in a c!oset near the door and she slipped into it, biding the bottle of milk in a deep pocket. Outside, she hesitated, glanced around lo see if any patrolmen were near. The sun was trying to break through massed clouds, but last night's rain left it still wet underfoot. She went on across 1bc driveway, disappeared into the garage. « t t jQAN FLYNN saw her coming, and crouched lower in Hie real ;eat of Henlhornc's limousine. If she intended trying to get away in a car, be reasoned, she probably would take tho small roadster. It was likely her own car. But she evidently had no such intention. She passed the car, went on (o the rear of the garage, toward the stairway that led to (he loft. As she readied the door, Flynn stepped out of the limousine, called to her. "Aiul where are you going, Mrs. Bcnlhorne?" She swung around, surprised. "I was just going upstairs for some luggage that's stored up here," she explained. "I couldn't find any of the servants and 1 wanted—" '"There's no, luggage or anything else : up there nnd - -you know it; Mrs. Bcnthorne," Flynn answered. 'The Captain will want lo see you. Come along with me." He loo]-, her arm, led her back to lie :u>use. * * * "T FOUND her going up (o the •*• garage loft, just as you thought she would, Captain, with :his bottle of milk in her pocket," Flynn announced as (hey entered the bedroom. Helen Benihorne siared about lior. While Dawson had been somewhat careful, however thorough, in his first search of her room he had spared nothing in his second. He had made no attempt lo replace the mattress on the bed, lior docet door stood open and the cushions of her chairs had been pulled out, pounded and awkwardly replaced. When they on- forcd, Dawson had been carefully tapping the walls. "What were you doing in the garage, and why were you going up to the loft?" Dawson asked. 'I've told (lie officer what I wanted. There's some luggage stored Ihere. I can'l slay here after—after last night. I couldn't find the servants." "And why. would you carry a bottle of milk?" Helen Benthornc did not answer. She groped for a chair, sank into it. "Go get the cat, Flynn!" * * « AT the mention of the word, Mrs. Bonthorne looked up, startled. 'Cat?" she queried. "What cat?" "We'll see, soon." She fidgeted in her chair as they waited. Dawson went on with his lapping. "There may he a ,cnl arouml here, but it probably belongs to one of the servants," she said. "I can'l see what—" "It's nothing lo worry about, Mrs. Benihorne," Dawson assured her. "Just a little experiment of mine to determine the ownership of a certain cat. If you know nothing about it, you need bave no fears. Huh, sounds like Flyim's having trouble." Flynn appeared at the doorway. In bis arms he struggled lo hold a spitting, biting, scratching eal. Long, scratches on his hands showed that Ihe cat bail not been captured without something of a battle. "AH right, Flynn, you can lei go now." The officer complied, gladly. The huge black cat ran lightly across ttie room to Helen Ben- thorne, paused for ;: second at her feet, then leaped to the arm of her chair, to fawn against its mistress and glare back at'Flynn.
