that the eventual responsibility rest*

The reasoning by which the court
Justifies the gaming element in deal*
that are adjusted by the transfer of
money from the loser to tile winner is
equally acute. It considers that the
buyer and the seller were contemplat-
ing an actual transaction in wheat or
anything else that may be the subject
of barter, and that if they choose to
settle the difference between the
price on the day of making the bar-
gain and the price on the day for de-
livery of the good* by an exchange of
cash they are not committing an Im-
moral or illegal act. The board was
established to accommodate ‘ such
methods of business and I* living up
to the purpose. It will be noticed
that the effect of the decision Is to
place the stamp of the highest judi-
cial sanction on a scheme of the kind
by which John W. Gates and bis part
ners recently endeavored to gain con-
trol of ail the visible supply of wheat
and unload It on the country at their
own prices. "Corners" are Justifiable,
for the supreme court declares that it
cannot eliminate the gambling fever
from humanity and it must be grant-
ed room for exercise.
It lias been contended In lie,half of
speculation in futures that It works
good results to the farmer in fixing
prices at which they may sell tbelr
product*, The court squints In the di-
I lection of an Indorsement of this the-
ory. according to which Gate* was a
benefactor of the wheat, growers, for
lie held prices up until he was over-
whelmed by the weight of the wheat
that cumo upon him like an ava-
lanche Hut the trouble is that any
effort to artificially advance prices Is
Invariably followed by a reaction, in
widen somebody Is certain to get the
worst of It, After ail, the decision is
virtually an admission that the law
offers no recourse to the loser In a
shielded by a charter.
AS LE GALLIENNE SAW IT.
iKansas City Star.)
(The follolwng impression of the
Nan Patterson case anJ of American
criminal Justice was written by Rich-
ard Le Gallienne, tht* English poet
and author. Mr. Lc Gallienne is au-
thor. among other works, of "George
Meredith; Home Characteristics;”
"Robert Louts Stevenson"Prose
Fancies,” and a translation of the
Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.)
New York—One feels sorry for Nan
Patterson. Not merely on general
principle* of pity for a human being
in so solemn a situation, but because,
for one no situated, she Is so tragic-
ally unattractive. A woman on trial
—and particularly, need I say, in
America, has usually a strong case
for the defense of her mere woman-
hood. if she is pretty and smart she
Is already a long way toward acquit-
tal. For a woman on trial for her
life it Is almost more important, to
be "stunning" than to he innocent.
Miss Anu Eliza Patterson Is unfor-
tunate in this, respect and her very
womanhood Is more likely than not
to go against her—for It is anything
but a persuasive womanhood. Her
commonplace, sullen, self-contained
features are by no means without
character, but the character is cer-
tainly not of the kind that provokes
looking at the hard eyes, the blunt,
unrefined nose, the pudgy, "common”
contour of face and body, one is con-
scious of a certain animal force, but
it Is the force of feline predacity
without any of the feline fascina-
SATURDAY, MAY IS, 1905.
GROWTH OF AMERICAN CITIES.
The growth of American cities In
area I* going on pretty steadily and Is
not always reflected by the growth In
Ten years ago New Orleans was a
city of (50 square miles area; It* pres-
ent area Is 198 square miles.
Cincinnati in the same period has
increased from 21 to 43 square miles,
Denver from 43 to 59, Indianapolis
from 30 to 29, Louisville from 14 to
20, Bostop from 37 to 42, Han Fran
cisco from 42 to 48, Atlanta from 9 to
12, Duluth from 82 to 87, New Haven
from 9 to 20, Portland, Me., from 3
to 22, Fall River from 41 to 43, Little
Rock front 8 to 11, Howard front 18
to 22, and Holyoke from 6 to 10,
In Texas every city of 10,000 or
more population covers front two to
five times the area as is Included in
the corporate limits of El Paso. But
this town will have to extend iU
limits In a short time.
The city which has made the largest
gam in area is New York, which ten
years ago covered 81 square miles and
now covers 32-i. (he extension of its
boundaries to include Brooklyn, Long
Island City and Staten Island having
taken place In the meanwhile.
Four American cities, all of first im-
portance, have gained little or noth-
ing ,n area during the last ten years.
They are Chicago, with an area of 190
square miles (It was 189 ten years
ago), Boston with 42, St, Louis with
61 and Baltimore with 31.
Some American cities are geo-
graphically so built that an extension
of their boundaries Is impracticable.
Other American cities made provision
in advance for the growth which they
expected, and an addition to their
boundaries has no b«e:i necessary.
A majority of the cities of the coun-
try are larger ter-liorially than they
wen 20 years ago nearly one-half are
larger territorially than they were ten
years ago. and the Increase of popula-
tion In American cities has been gen-
eral But New York has made the
greatest growth both In size and num-
An Englishman, accustomed to the
Impressive ritual of the English court,
cannot fail to be struck by the al-
most cynicallack of anything suggest-
ing the august on the surface of an
American criminal trial. Can this
very informal, not to say casual, as-
semblage. really be here on a mat-
ter of life and death?
This woman sitting there with the
rest of Idle spectators--Is It really
she over whose head hangs so ter-
rible a -loom? A little man leaves
her side for a moment or passes
through the court room. He pauses
for an Instant to crack a joke with a
newspaper man. A young man with
a tine fighting head and defiantly
shabby suit of clothes leans back In-
differently In his heair, while another
of the defendant’s counsel, with an
ineffective voice and Jerky manner,
is urging a dismissal of the case,
the players for stakes are Presently the young man with the
shabby suit of clothes also leaves his
seat and ambles through the court
room, as Indifferently as if he was
not listening to a word of the plea he
is presently to demolish. He, too,
seems on familiar terms with the
“isn’t it fierce?" he mutters con-
temptuously to one of the young men
a* he passes by. This is the
veritable terror of the law in its
most formidable embodiment. This is
none other than the prosecuting at-
torney, the redoubtable Mr. Rand.
Mr. Band’s clothing Is forgotten as he
forcibly marshals the reasons why
the defense’s plea for a dismissal
should he set aside. As he states
them they sound terribly good rea-
sons, and the prisoner's imperturba-
bility is visibly affected as they fol-
low each other with merciless logis,
Caesar Young Is dead. The defense
cannot deny that. He died from the
effects of a pistol shot while riding
In n hansom with the prisoner on the
morning of June 4, 1904.

By the decision of the United
States supreme court speculation on
the Chicago board of trade in the
future prices of products is declared
to be a legitimate business that the
judicial machinery Is required to pro-
tect. The ruling of the tribunal of
last resort takes account of the gam-
bling instinct prevalent in human na-
ture. “People will endeavor,” it says,
"to forecast the future and to make
agreements according to their proph-
ecy.’ And then the decision dives
deeper Into the salient question of
drawing the line between the benefi-
cial and the harmful by saying that
’ speculation of thla kind by compe-
tent men is the self-adjustment of so-
ciety to the probable.'’ But Anally
the court takes refuge behind the 111-
"ts the newspaper business profit-
able?” asks a magazine writer. While
modesty prevents us from discussing
Hie question, we may be pardoned for
pointing to the fact that Whltelaw

sador and pays $50,000 a year rent for
a house to live in.
The new passenger, gasoline motor

Obviously one or tho other must
have done it. From the direction of
the wound, says Mr. Rand, the man
couldn't have done It himself, but,
leaving that point to be further de-
veloped, Mr. Rand proceeds to pro-
pose the most suspicious bit, of evi-
dence In the whole case—the fact
that on tlie very .day when Caesar
Young was shot the prisoner's
brother-in-law pawned Jewcla at the

the wound are evidently the facta on
which Mr. Rand most confidently re-
lies for a conviction.

DYNAMITE IS USED.
Restaurant Operated by a Nepro at
Bertram Brown Up.
Bertram, Tex, May 10.—At 2 o'clock
Sunday night a terrific explosion
aroused the entire town from slum-
her. Most ail the male inhabitants
were soon on the streets and an in-
vestigation began, which soon de-
veloped the fact that the restaurant
of AlJe Carothers, a negro, had been
dynamited, the kitchen of which was
completely demolished. The stove
was broken into fragments and pieces
of the same ap well aa other cooking
utensils were -hurled In every direc-
tion. A buggy standing at the rear
ot the building was completely de-
molished. No one was In the restau-
rant at the time of the explosion. It
is supposed that the dynamiters
wished to warn the darky to shift his
quarters. No clew to the perpetra-
$10,000 FOR AGUE8S.
(Kansas City Times.)
By guessing within six cf the total
attendance at the St. Loyi* World’s
fair, W. D. Walls, a butcher employed
at the grocery and meat market of
dame* Rose, 802 Southwest boulevard,!
won a prize of $10,000. A circular |
recieved by him the first of the week
contained the announcement that he
had won the secesid prize, the capital
prize being $26,000 Mr. Walls there-
upon went, to the First National bank
and drew upon the Missouri-LIncoln
Trust company of St. I,ouls, where
the prize money was deposited. The
draft was .paid promptly and Mr.
Walls received from the first National
l»ank lOfle bills of the denomination of
$100 each. Of the amount he deposit-
ed $500 with the First National Bank,
where he had a small account, and
$9,500 was deposited in the vaults of
the Fidelity Trust company.
The World’s Fair Contest company
Is the name of the concern that con-
ducted the contest. The company an-
nounce it, would give prizes amount-
ing bo $85,500 for tiie nearest estimate
to the actual paid attendance during
tne entire world’s fair. Wall’s esti-
mate was 12,804,611, while the correct
figure was six more than that number.
The ticket that won the money was
numbered 3,025. Tt was purchased,
together with ninety-nine others, at
the drug store of R. S. Stevens, 706
Southwest Boulevard. Mr. Stevens
said last night that fifteen years ago
while clerking in a cigar store here,
he sold a ticket to a man by the name
of Harry Oebhardt that won the capi-
tal prize of vl5,000 in ' e Jxtulslana
lottery. The 100 tickets purchased
by Walls cost him $13.
Walls attributes bis luck to the fact
that he made the guesses on the
twelfth day of the month, which date
a fortune teller once told him was his
lucky day. He has twice ./store dem-
onstrated his ability to guess well on
this date. In the convention hall con-
test three years ago he came within
three of the capital prize and at the
same time he guessed the exac. num-
ber of nickels In a Jar, There were
several other persons who also guess-
the correct number The jar contain-
ed $46.50 in nickels and a diamond
ring valued at $150 Walls received

he returns he expects to invest, his
