tho courage to say what they think
and do what they say.
Paid Bask Every Cent.
There are a few Instances In the ca
reer of Governor Fort that Illustrate
the quality of the man. The first oc-
curred just after he was out of law
school. Ills father bad advanced mon
ey for young Fort's education, but the
boy did not rest until out of his first
earnings be paid back every cent.
The second Incident occurred when
the young man was choosing a career.
He Is not the first New Jersey gov
ernor In the Fort family, bis uncle,
George I. Fort, having held that exalt
ed office back In the fifties. When ad
vising with the old gentleman about
the way to grab the success fruit off
the political free the original Governor
Fort advised his nephew to move to '
Jersey City and become a Democrat,
os that was the only party through
which he could hope for preferment
To this the young man demurred. He
did not object to Tersey City, but he
was a Republican and would not
change his coat for an t lb e.
The third characteristic event was
pulled oil many years later. In the
meantime John Franklin Fort bad
been doing things, bad served n long
time as district Judge, was a leador at
the bar and a political orator recog
nized by Lis party. In was In SS-;,

' pol.iw arebe tired out of the couvon-
ti -n and out of the vir;y. That was
th.e MeKtnley year, and It was also i
.To.dco Fort's privilege to make the
nominating speech for Garret A. Ho
hart for vice president. I do not know
whether It was the speech that got
Ilobart the plum or not. but I have
At any rate, the skin-
ring of Add!' ks and the naming of
Ilobart brought Fort a national repu
tation as an orator.
Judge Fort Is the author of the pro
bation system In New Jersey, and the
story of the manner lu which hi
brought It about 'again reveals his
courage. When he tlrst proposed such
a law he had trouble lu finding a lo
Islator who would stand for It. His
own senator from Essex virtually re-
fused to Introduce the bill, but Anally
consented to put it In "by request.'
Judge Fort requested a hearing before
the legislature and presented the case
so cogently that the bill passed both
houses by practically a unanimous
vote. So popular was the measure
that whenever the senator from Essex
thought of that "by request" he went
mto a gecluded spot -and kicked him
self. The probation systwtn puts men
sentenced to prison on their honor and
allows them to remain at large during
good behavior. It sounds well In theo
ry and has worked In practice.
Eid Long Branch of Gamblers.
Driving the gamblers out of Long
Branch Is another case In point.
Everybody suld It could not be done.
The gamblers had large amount In
vested, ran some of the most notorious
Joints around New York, were In-
trenched In power and controlled poll-
tics. Justice Fort had nothing on bis
side but the law and the fact He
held the grand jury In continuous ses
sion, indicted the light fingered gen
tlemen, convinced them that he meant
business, then told them to leave the
state and if they ever came back he
would fend them to state prison. They
nent end did not return.
Fort was stiil on the supreme bench
vl;'-n he was nominated for governor.
The politi'lans wanted him to con

such a course. Rut that was not

the Father of Ills Country would do if
he ran np against the legislative Hes
sians at Trenton now. And that re
calls me from this digressive side rath
to Governor Fort, for that Is Just what
Fort has to do.
Tall and Handsome.
I found the governor about the hand
somest man I have run up against
since the days when I used to play
chess with Charlie Magoon out In Lin
coln. XIagoon wore a silk hat even In
those days, as though he had a prophet
ic hunch that he would be his excel
lency of Panama and Cuba some day.
I think Fort has It even over Magoon
In the matter of looks. Indeed. In a
Job lot of governors he would have all
the rest looking like cheap Imitations..
He Is tall, but not too tall: fleshy, but
not too fleshy youthful looking for bis
years and yet redeemed from a too
adolescent npionranoe by an Iron gray
close cropped mustache. His photo
graphs are like him and yet fall to re
veal the fine lines of his face. If I
were ordering a governor to till the
Ideal specifications at every point I do
not see how I could much Improve ou
Fort. True, he has not the exuberant
whiskers of Hughes, but for that I
can forgive blm with my whole heart.
My talk with Governor Fort was mt
an Interview, but a chat. I wanted to
know the man. not to pump him or
put words Into bis mouth. Us said
one thing, however, that caught me.
It expressed his Jubilant faith In
Americanism and fundamental de
mocracy. A Republican legislature
had Just elected Chamberlain, a Dem
ocrat, senator from Oregon in olx-dl-
ence to a mandate from me people
To Fort this seemed n triumph of hu
man honesty and popular government,
He favored election of senators by the
people. He believed, with De Tooquo
vlile, that the cure Tor the evils of de
mocracy Is more democracy. Put men
on their honor. The masses have
shown their capacity for orderly gov
ernment. Trust them. These are but
Indications of what he really did say,
but he got my goat right there. In
deed, he got It from bis first frank
look and hearty word. My heart Is
not a partisan, and It always did like

In reference to the present agitation
concerning the conduct of five cent
theaters, or "uiekelets." as they are
widely known, the Itev. A. E. liartlett
of Chicago present the view that the
entertainments should be Improved
rather than abolished.
"Amusements have uo character In
and of themselves," he says. "They
are good or bad as the people make
them so. It Is both unjust and un
wise to condemn outright dancing,
card playing ami theater going. All
wholesome amusements are needed,
but Instead of trying to aboliah them
the church should seek to purify and
uplift them. The five cent theater has
become one of 'the great problems In
recreation which our city must solve.
Its low price has enabled It to reach
the multitudes, including many chil
dren. Our city needs these cheap
amusements, but It does not need nor
