Opinions of Great Papers on Important Subjects.
THE BLACK HAND.
MORE systematic method In crime, a
I broader organization, have been revealed
I In the Dlack Hand than police authorities
The type of criminal who emptor the
Black Hand waya, In eplte of the terror
he Is enabled to create, la of a low order.
Ills Intelligence Is often seemingly more bestial than
human. The discipline of a large band of workers, the
secrecy necessary, and, above all, the division of spoils
these call for an understanding and a singleness of
purpose that the ordinary Sicilian and Calabrlan rogue
does not possess.
Because of the recent revelations the alarming sug
gestion hns been made that native American criminals,
confidence men and cracksmen of superior wit and re
sourcefulness have entered the field. This would ac
count for the orranlzatlon discovered. It would explain
the apparent subservience to a leading IntelllKence and
It would satisfy questions the police ask as to the ex
istence of a central fund and a working arrangement
common to several sections of the country. The Amerl
csn criminals would naturally hldo themselves under
aliases of Italian names, and. too, they would have all
arrangemente so that the foreigners and not themselves
should suffer In case of discovery.
The Black Hand Is probably no worse than other
forms of blackmail except In so far that It causes a
greater fear among Its victims and a more general un
easiness among the police. The methods used In the at
tempt to break It up have proved of little avail. A
penalty as severe as that for kidnaping might tend to
crush It It Is worth trying. Toledo Wade.
UBS. THAW'S BOOK.
RS. THAW, the mother of Harry Thaw,
has written and publitihed a book In
which she makes a bitter attack upon
those whose duty It Is to administer Jus
tice In the courts of Now York. 8h
makes District Attorney Jerome an e
nial i.runt iWlftrlnr that ha has sons
outside of his Jurisdiction several times to persecute
her son. The public will hardly be led to take any
different view of the Thaw case by the publication of
this book than It already entertains. It will, however,
be disposed toward charity and excuse the foolish ful
mlnatlon upon the ground that It Is the case of a
mother flKhtlng for her son.
Money was the greatest curse which ever fell upon
the Thaw family. If the mother had taken a different
course when her son was young; If she had limited
the amouunt of hla spending money, and If rhe hnd
InslHird that he be put to work when not In school,
tho later years of her life might not have been clouded
with this ureal sorrow. Itecause the Thaw family was
rolling In wealth. It was considered ridiculous that
Harry should be other than a gentleman of leisure.
There wns nover a more tragic Illustration of sowing
the wind and reaping the whirlwind. To-day he la a
murderer and deserves life Imprisonment, If no greater
punishment Ht has escaped prison on the flimsy plea
of mental unsoundness. He ought to be thankful, as
bad the members of his family, that he has made so
good an escape from the electrlo chair. However, the
family la turning heaven and earth In an effort to
have him proven sane. It Is hardly conceivable that
tb courts of New York will permit so great a travesty
In the name of Justice. Meanwhile Mrs. Thaw's book
will take Its place among the curiosities of American
literature. Dea Moines Capital.

I pleasant old proverb, "When poverty comet

poverty Is the first to take possession, poor
love has to sit on the doorstep and wait.
All through the year liS the little god has been shiver

of spending a cozy and perfectly delightful twelve
month. And during the year of hard times marriages
fell off 20 per cent.
In Manhattan Borough alone nearly 20.000 persons

they take It who ought, from the statistician's point
of view, to have been married last year.
The statistician takes a cold-blooded view of It mere

up" with other Interesting facts. He hasn't a word to
say about love's young dream, and hope deferred, and
all the furtive tears for which those 10,000 non-existent
marriages are responsible. You can't make average
of such things as a young man's disappointment and a
nice girl's heartache.
The results of hard times are always, first of all,

WHY CORRUPT THE CLOCKS f
""" LL the advantages derived from the Cln
I clnnatl "daylight" ordinance, and similar
I measures proposed elsewhere, could be ob-
I talned without making liars of the town

" sought Is an Increase In the number of
daylight hours available for recreation.
In the summer time, when the evenings are long. It
Is proposed to "knock off' an hour earlier than Is now
the custom, and so that this should not disorganize In
dustry by reducing the number of working hours In
shops and factories It would be necessary to begin work
earlier In the niornlug. Hut why should the clocks be
set an hour ahead? Cannot worklngmen be made to
ncqulre the habit of early rising (an excellently good
habit In the hot season) without making prevaricators
of our clorks? Philadelphia Record.
Chester bustled In with an air of
great Importance. Taking off his hat
he reached up and hung It on Its hook
Inaiuad of giving It the oa relet twirl
by means of which It customarily at
tained that position.
"Say. Have," he began, "there's a
new kid coin In' today and we bet
"Well, don't I know It?" Interrupted
David. "Think you're tellln' me a
"Aw, g'wanl" exclaimed Chester.
You never knew a thing about It till
I Ju.t told you."
"I did. too." retorted David. He add
ed, chuckling: "You kin learn a lot If
you git down early enough."
"Well, any how." pursued Chester.
'It's a good tiling for (he bos that
he made up his niliiil to Ki't In anoth

Chester's voice died away as the
otnte niatiaser appeared with a red
batred boy In to.'
"tiood morning, boys." said the
manager. "I've brought you an as

quiringly to the red haired boy.

"Well. John." began Chfwter. taking
poe4loti of the tloor with an Imi
tation of the mamtger's manner. "I
might aj well begin to put you wlie
to the Job. There's a lot to learn In

A whirring of tb switchboard
drew Cluster's attention aside for a
moment. The new ktj thereupon
Inked an Impudent green eye at
David, who responded by half-closing
round blue orb.
"Well." resumed Chester, turning
aala to the new kid. "let me see
on. vm They're awful particular
about beln' respectful to the heads
of departments 'round here, too, so
when you speak to me you'd better
Just call me 'sir.'"
Chester paused reflectively. The
new kid. leaning against a table,
crossed bis knees, thrust his hands
Into his pockets and regarded Chester
between partly shut eyelids.
"Aw. fade away, kid," he remarked,
languidly. "Don't you try to work
any of your answer-the-buzzer-tlll-you-get-on-to-t

dexed more books and copied more
letters than you ever seen In your
life, and I kin run any old kind of a
switchboard that ever was put In."
He drew one hand from his pocket
and leveled a forefinger at Chester.
"And, look here," he said, "you better
not come round me with any of your
fresh talk 'bout me callln' you 'sir,'
unless you want to get pasted one In
the lamp. I ain't look In' fer no scrap,
but If they goln' to be one It ain't

He straightened up In a leisurely
manner, strolled over to the awitch

calmly down upon the enraged but

TERRAPIN' AND FR0Q FARM.
Srhrmr In llnl.r llrltraHr on I.ouk

There Is an Industry out on Long'
Island whli h Is yet In the very earliest
stages of Infancy and a!.out which its
sponsors sre exceedingly reticent. It
Is the rearing and marketing of terra
pin anil frog, strictly according to
the rules and regulations laid down by
the Secretary of Agriculture.
So far the names of enly three men
Interested In the prospective terrapin
and frog farm have r.- hed the publt;.

who Is reputed to be an expert In mat

Interest of two Brooklyn dentists.
They ar Dr. F. C. Roye. of 65 Green

for two circumstances. The first was
that his co-workers were nnxloua to
keep the matter to themselves for the
present, as Dr. Skinner Indicated by
putting an Index finger to his lips as a
token that silence had been enjoined
upon him. The other was a certain
backwardness on his own account-

NEW YORK'S HORSE CARS.
Receiver Hrpnrla III Drflrlt oa 2(ttb
and atlh fttrveta Mae.
Joneiih B. Maver. receiver of th
28th and 29th Streets Crosstown Rail
road Comnanv. filed yesterday with
the Public Service Commission the re
port of the road for the quarter ended
March 21. the New York Tribune says.
The report fhows a deficit for the
three months of $1,271 and on ojrat-
Ing ratio of 230.02 pe' "ent- ,n o'ner
words. It cost two and one-half as
much to operate as Its earnings were.
The road wns divorced from the
Metropolitan Street Railway Com
pany's system over a year age and
nlaced In the hands of a separate re
ceiver. It has In operation three horse
cars, which are run at ftfteon and
thtrtv minutes' headway alternately.
The road Is 3.3 miles long, with sin
gle trnck and turnouts.
Cross earnings from operation for
the quarter were 13.174 and operating
expenses were i.u3. income rrom
other sources was $1"S and rentals
were $."3S. The balance sheet Is amus-
Inc. as the only Item carried on the
assets side Is the ,uarter's deficit of
$4.I7". The receiver says that he Is
unable to present a "general balance
heet." He adds that no other assets
exist. The figures as to the cost of
the road, he says, are not available.
As a sample of high traction finance
the story of the road Is interesting
it received Its charter In 1SS6. but was
sold at foreclosure In lf6. It was
turned over to the Metropolitan with
a capital stock of ii.5uo.ooo ana a
indebtedness of a Ilk amount.
This made Its capitalization IS93.38S
a mile, which would seem to te close
to the record for street car lines. In
view of these figure the Inability of
the road to operate three cars without
a large deficit Is significant
