but our precaution was needless.
When we peered forth nothing moro
dangerous had en'tered tho sanctum
than our friend of yoro, tho Old Pell
can, who sat calmly In his farorlto
perch on tho rim of the waste basket
and vlcrwod us meditatively.
"Too wicked flea hops from be

misquoted, as usual. "What you been

siderable expansion of an atready
over-developed bump of caution, due
to brisk contact with the most re

and a rent Inflicted by a pendent nail
In the southeastern extremity of our
seven-day-a-weok trousers. Tho first

Inquired wratblly, and would have
carried our Justifiable reproach fur

"Now seo hero, sonny," ho bogan
apologetically. "How could I know
that whllo I been away on my win

a lot of boll with folks' feelings that
a little- friendly demonstration like

nothing, and "
"Say no moro, say no moro?" wo
countered, touched and soothed by
this abject apology from tho auto
cratic old bird.
"Well, I ain't got much moro to

"I ain't been homo long and I ain't

"You're welcome," he countered
cheerfully. "You needed a new .pair

"By the way, If It Interests you,"

TRENTON, April 16. TntcrostUiK
light has bcrai thrown on. tho opixrn
tlon and spend of "Jorsoy Justice" iih
a result of recent convictions for
murder and otJior crimen, Whllo mis
demeanors nnd felonies ham Incroas!
cd In Now Jorscv" as olsowliwro In tho
country In tho iwat year cvr so, stnto
records show that there hnvo been
few disagreement of Juries mul pris
on sentences havo been extended to
maximum limits In order to discour
age violators of tho law.
Ono fcaturo of 2Cow Jorsoy law
that fow. It any, of tho other states
have, nnd which Jn satd to hnvo
been a prima factor In giving tho
stato Its traditional reputation for
llghtenlng-llko court procedure Is a
provision that a Jury In a first dii
greo murder trial may deslgnnto llfo
Imprisonment liuitcad of thu death
penalty for tho ronvlptod person.
This has rcsultod in many quick
convictions for llfo fan prison men t.
whoro otherwise there might have
been Jury dlsagroemunls.
Cases like that of tho Union Coun
ty bandits, Charles and John Krcbs
nnd Martin Shannon, who wuro sen
toncod to servo from 56 to 75 years
each and who woro tried, convicted
and wcro beginning to serve1 their
sentences within -18 hours of their
capture, aro occurring almost dally i
In New Jersey, tho present so-called
"criwo wave" apparently furnishing
an excellent test for tho efficiency
of Its courts.
"Jersey Justice" famed from
Malno to Florida, from tho Atlantic
to tho Pacific and even ovorscas, not
only because of Its speed, Its accur
acy and Its relontlcssness but al
because of Its fairness and efficiency,
was not established overnight It Is
scarcely a tanglblo thing. It may bo
best described as "a stato of mind,"
tho people demanding that their law
officers bo efficient abovo everything;
olso. Thus prosecutors, grand Jur
les, Judges, petit Juries and nil othur
branches of the administration of
Justice, which lead tho criminal to
prison and tho murdered to tho doath
chair, aro Just so many wheols and
gears and belts In an nlmost perfectly-working
"machlno," whoso motive
powor is tho people.
Tradition has had much to do with
making "Jersey Justico.'V Beginning
with tho early days of thn; settlement
of the state when many crimes wero
punlshablo by death the Calvlnlsts
brough Into East Jersey distinctive
views of religious and civil mutters
which probably wero tho roots of
"Jorsoy Justice." Through the ante
revolutionary period, when organized
efforts woro put forth to suppress
piracy in tho Delaware and Now
York bays, down to tho present time,
tho speed with which penalties have
bcon metod out to tho evil-doer has
been exemplified and emphasized
hero moro, perhaps, than in nny oth
or section of tho United States.
Now Jertcy differs In no great re
spect from othor states as to thu
genoral legal procoduro for tho pun
ishment of crime. Lynchlngs and
crlmos against accused persons, how
over, are rare. Officers of tho law,
from tho highest Judges out of tho
courts. At present thero aro moro
than threo score llfo prisoners In tho
stato prison hero and olght out of
ovory ten convicts aro In for long
Whllo "Jorsoy Justlco" Is awltt, tho
Innocent aro safeguarded through a
uystciu of appoals, reprieves nnd
stays, and latter sometlnios operat
ing to save convicted persons from
tho denth chnlr. Thn case of Frank
1' James and Raymond W. Schuck,
convicted of killing David S. Paul, n
Cnimlon bank messcngor, Is an Illus
tration. After thotr arrest tho trials
of tho murderers woro expedited and
thu snmo day thoy wero sontenced
they were In tho deathhouso hero
"candidates" for tho chair. Tholr ap
peals nro now pending before thn
Court of Errors nnd Appoals, tho

In July 1904, thrco young negroos,
Aaron Timbers, William Austin, nnd
Jonns Slmms, entered tho homo of a
farmer named Blddlo, near Burling
ton, bound Mrs. Blddlo nnd attacked
her. Within a taw days nil thrco wore
raptured, tried, convicted and had
begun sentences of 49 years each In

man who torrorlzod womon, "was re
cently captured and tried and con
victed tho noxt day. The evening of-
that day he was on his way to pris

dara, a young motorcycle bandit, who
hold up a Public Sorvlco Corporation
paymaster, stole 34, 000 and was
shot 12 times In tho body, was tnkon
from a hospital to tho Mount Holly
court houso and after being sentenc
ed to 28 years was brought to prison
tho samo day on a strotchor. Two
companions recelvod a llko sentonco.
Richard Hammock, a Paterson
youth who hold up and killed the
driver of a silk truck received a life
