Tlum Is evidence tending to show that the Iiojh now' on trial

the older civilisation of Itussla. Wo should liol Hiiiictttiifthl
practice In the United States. It Is neither wise nor til nceo'rdnnce
with n ron.oiiahlo standard of social morality,
If It W true that these boys were Induced to commit a felony
by a police detective, and If such a course Istiventually approved
by public opinion, It Is the beginning oof the ItusKlanlrlug of tho
American police system. It will constitute a backward move
toward the worst features of old-world tyrituulleul government.
The( logical end of such a beginning Is an AMKItlCAN

cuse that this course Is resorted to to prevent crime Is not, In my
opinion, VALID. It has been amply proved, over and' over again
that violence breeds violence. I believe that lawlessness and
violence, when used by representatives of the public, are fully as

Of course. It Is foolish to Infer that twentieth century
America will ever allow a complete or eVn a seml-ltiisslaiiUIng

The only other district which has
