The President indomed the pfilicy of

Ilia attention waa culled to the needs
of th!. !:;'' ury civil ap-

This bill waa vetoed by ex-President'
Taft because of ita provision virtually
exempting labor uniona and farmers'
organizations from prosecution under
the Sherman anti-trust law.
Friends familiar with the Presi
dents attitude toward kindred subjects
declared that unless it could be shown
that the paragraph to which the ex
president objected wa
was not "class leg-

he would use his influence to
prevent such 'a provision from being
inserted in the new bill.
Senators found that Mr. Wilson is
observing the courtesies usually ex

senators and asked if they would ob

It was pointed out on authority that
President Wilson does not intend to
turn over to his department chiefs the
appointment of Federal ollice holders,
particularly to important posts. His
order of Wednesday waa for the pur
sse of allowing department bead to
sift out the applications and present
him with one or more suitable candi
dates. Virtually every case eventually
will reach the White House, even if
the appointees themselves are barred
in the preliminary stages.

Of the witnesses called by the de

that he had refused to handle Interna

The defense satisfied itself with in

ARMIXIU8 T. HAEIiERLE of
St. Louis, who as American
consul to Honduras traveled
about the mountainous coun
try accompanied by hi wife,
sleeping under the stars and under
forest trees, to attend to the duties
of his office, has been promoted
through the merit system to the of
fice of American consul to Siberia.
Instead of Bitting in bis office to
attend to routine dw"s, be set about
to acquaint the natives with Ameri
can Ideas, and in doing thia he aided
them to seek hotter mean of living,
better methods of cultivating their
farms, and In many way helped to
Improve their condition.
Mr. Haeberle visited the native,
made them feel that the consul's
home was always open to them and
many took advantage of the hospital
ity, some after a Journey of 200
miles. In this manner the consul and
bis wife became acquainted with the
Mr. Haeberle' effort were recog
nized by the government of Honduras,
and progressive article which he
wrote were circulated by the govern
ment Camped at Roadside.
Mr. Haeberle was Miss Ida Wlen

panied her husband on many arduous
Sometimes the couple would accept
the hospitality of the people along the
roads, and swing their hammocks In
front of their houses, and sometimes
they would camp along the road.
. Speaking of his trips, Mr. Haeberle
said: "A saddle mule Is needed to
make the Journeys into the Interior,
as there are no railroads. In addition
to the saddle mule, a traveler must
ha.ve a nack mule and a 'mozo' or
guide. The guide does not ride, and
the traveler does not have to worry
about the guide becoming tired The
only concern Is to obtain a mule
which will keep up with the guide.
"The riding is rough, being along
mountainous trails and near preci
pices. The usual day's Journey is 37
"The Journey to the north coast Is
a trip of six days, and to the south
coast require two and one-half days.
Some of the fancy mules travel 20
leagues a day.
"Most of the houses are modest,
and with few accommodations, hut
great hospiiiMty is shown, and the
natives give freely of their food,
which consists principally of coffee,
eggs. rice, beans,' and the native corn
"Eg;:9, by tl.3 way cost about 20
cents a dozen in the capital, but they

"The name of the capital. Teguci

of Silver,' and the name Is properly
applied, as the hills and mountains
are rich In mineral wealth, silver and

"When 1 first went the-e th old
Spanish plow, made of a wooden
beam, on the end of which waa a
piece of Iron, with which th ground
was only scraped to a shallow depth,
was ln general use.
"I told them of the modern plow,
which would greatly benefit crop, j
wrote articles setting forth the ad
vantages of modern machinery for th
benefit of the small farmer. There
are many agriculturists In Honduras
well acquainted with the most modem
farming methods, and It Is also their
desire to see Improved machinery In
troduced, among the poorer clas.
"These articles were translated Into
the Spanish language and printed and
sent out by the government in lu of- "
ficial paper. The Hondurans gladly
read and commented on the articles.
"The government co-operated, and
a farmer ln the Interior, who bad pur
chased an American plow In some
manner or other, confirmed my state
ments of the depth that It would cul
tivate the ground, and of the benefit
such cultivation was to the crop.
Finally, a consignment of plow wa
received and distributed to the farm
ers. Many were anxious to receive
them and they are now reaping th
benefit of large crops.
"This Is simply an Instance of how
a consul may create a demand for the
products of his country, while at the
same time aiding the natives.
"Mrs. Haeberle accompanied me
and made many friends. 1 believe we
enjoyed the confidence of all with
whom we came in contact. Mrs Hae
berle has served as a Judge ln needle
and art work at the schools, and haa
otherwise mingled with the Hon

London Chronicle that centuries ago
Justice was not administered nearly
so Impartially as It 1b now. There
were the "basket Justices" who re
ceived their nickname from the pres
ents openly handed up to them In
court by suitors. And in more re
cent tiroes there were the "trading
Justices" satiilzed by Fielding In
"Amelia." Townsend, the celebrated
Bow street runner, in his evidence
before a parliamentary committee ta
1 1816, described how these Justices
used to issue batches of warrant e- .
ery day "to take up all the poor devil
on the streets, so as to charge them
two shillings four pence each a bail.
