tears to Gillette's eyes, for the first time
since the opening of the trial. i
A verdict from the jury it expected by

Excellent laws were passed at the last

It is a great social injustice to compel

killed or disabled victim, to bear th. en
tire burden of such an inevitable sacrifice

WITHDRAWAL OF COAL LANDS
It it not wit. that th. Nation thould
alienate itt remaining coal landt. I have
temporarily withdrawn from eettlement
all the landt which the Geological Survey
hat indicated at containing, or in all prob
ability ' containing, coal. The question,
however, can be property settled only by
legislation, which in my judgement should
provide for th. withdrawal of these land
from sale or from entry, save in carta
especial circumstances. The ownersh
would then remain in the United States,
which should not, however, attempt to
work them, but permit them to be work
ed by private individuals under a royalty
system, the Government keeping tuch
control at to permit it to see that no
excessive price was charged consumers
INHERITANCE INCOME TAX
The President handles the Inheritance
and Income Tax exhaustively. "There
can be no question of the ethical proprie
ty of the government thus determining
the conditions upon which any gift or in
heritance should be received "
In setting forth the necessity of such
training, he says: "Unfortunate , at pres
ent, the effect of some of the work in tne
public schools is in the exactly opposite
direction. It boys and g.ris are trained
merely in literary occompiishmenU, to
