During the lost fiscal year, ending June
30, ouJ trade with the Philippine islands
fell off about $750,000 from that of the
preceding year. The increased trade of
the United States with Alaska, Hawaii
and Porto Rico was so great that ship
ments to our noncontiguous possessions
were 20 more than in 1905. We ship

BOYS WHO RUN WILD
The murder of James F. Sloane was
C'.c of the moct hcrrible si''vr mm
m.tted in Spokane. The fact that the
deed was committed by the victim': son
adds to the horror of the affair.
The act was deliberate, cold-blooded,
brutal in every detail; vet it is net im
probable that another plea of emotional
insanity will be made in his behalf. Every
thing may be done to shield the youth
who deliberately planned to murder his
father for $500. Already his friends
have advised him. Presumably they ha'
given him hope, have given him to under
stand that he has friends and they will
Do these friends fail to recogonize that
something is due society, asks the Chron
icle. Do they pess over the fact that a
social leper is kept from society for so
ciety's good, and not for the convenience
of the out.ast? Sympathy is a great and
noble trait, but it should not be misdirected
it should not be confused with maudlin
sentimentality. The deliberate perpetrat
or of a revolting crime is not to be petted
and turned loose to commit new horrors.
This young man had companions. Other
young men in Spokane associated with
him. They were partners in some of his
debasing pasttimes. There are smaller
editions of Sydney Sloane in Spokane.
They may lack the nerve, the cruelty, the
utter degeneracy of the boy who now oc
cupies a cell in the city jail, but they are
on the downhill grade. If not stopped
now there is no way to foretell the deptli
of depravity to which they may descend.
There are scores of boys running wild
on the streets of Spokane. If their
parents will not take care of them the
hemp j courts may be compelled to do sj. They
I are getting the training that leads to
i crime. These boys should be taken in
was and cared for. If the parents care no-
