,,e The Trenton Sun Newton Rule, Publisher. "T'REN'ON, ILLINOIS " . ii ii __  = Ill i INEFFICIENCY. When analyzed, inefficiency amounts )to one of two things, either it is igno- Irance or dishonesty. If one is ignor- ant of how to do a thing, there is some xcuse for him, but when dishonesty is to blaine for It, it is a time for ret- irlhution. Still, some people look up- mn inefficiency with indifference and memo, strange to say, with vpproval. " IEfficiency of a man speaks hfs cha teeter. A community is depraved if it lie made up of ignorant and dishonest rmen, or, what is the same, inefficient ,men. That is largely the trouble of many communit2es. They seem to tol- erate the inefficient man; to sympa- thize with him, as if his misfortune was not his own fault. A man who an do $3 worth of work in a day ts Pthlaeed no higher in public esteem than e man who earns only $2 doing the mune class of worlL But the former [S & truer sn. He puts a high esU- te on dut'. He strives to make himself worth what he gets. If he doesn't, ha is a fraud. Fidelity to one's trust Is the mark of a real man. The fellow who "soldiers" on his Job an untrue man. There are many men of this kind--they do as little as they can. They will be happy if they don't do $5 worth for the/r $5. There a men who haw no scruples about eheattng an employer who happens to We more money than they have. A recent British writer says that an |ndispensable requirement for success tin public life in America is "unim- !peachable rectitude In private life." imiting the application of this to high mcial place=, it is true. The scru- Itlny to whick a candidate for national Nor important stats office is subjected pute the man with a "past" out of the wunning. There is no double stand- rd as between women and that frac- tion of men whom we choose to rule ver us. This scrutiny and the rectitude it mommandB are excellent. But there is m sort of mildewed, unwholesome per- ,verelon of the scrutiny that is most listinctly not excellent. The effect to "get something on" an official is usu- ally.reserved for such time am he has mhown a purpose to give real public eervice, Then every keyhole has a toasty politician's eye glued to it. Ev- 4ry transom is peeped through. Every loset is opened for disclosing a hoped- for skeleton. The former places of irsaidence of the man who Is trying to aerve are raked for something discred- dtable. Dr. Bell says that trsoceanic fly- ing is bound to come. It looks h- !probable now, but nothing can be pro- nounced impossible in the face of hat has been accomplished. In fact, rehe favorite occupation of the science f today is trampling on impossibili- ties. But every triumph has its trag- edy, and the toll of human life which will pay for this achievement will fur- nish the latter element. A Washington chauffeur has been Sent to Jail for three.years for taking JOy ride in his employer's automo- bile without permission. Courts and public are realizing that drastic meas- urea are .necessary to break uP the Joy.riding practice and the stealing of motor cars for this purpose. The Jail sentence Is a good experiment along this line. It might be extended to take in all-speeders on the public highways. An Italian kidnaper in New York Just had his sentence of 25 to 50 years in prison upheld bY the courts. Kidnapings have stopped since this se ere sentence was imposed. More crimes might be checked in the same way if an unwise and dangerous senti. mentality did not so often intervene to lessen the deterrent effect of pun- ishment and turn criminals loose up- en the community. A Danish inventor has evolved an substitute for a soldier spring cud of the enrth. where it is buried, and shoot at the enemy. If the nations generally adopt this weird invention and wage war with automatic armies, the great bat- tles of the future will be fought by the all-pervading modern device of prStng the button and letting th .automatons do the rest. The dimple in the chin of the boy tby looks cute now, but it is going make trouble for him when he be- comes old enough to use a razor. A humanitarian penitentiay war- len proposes to teach the science of ethics to his charges and will erect & building m which the convicts can debate ethical questions. Penology seems to have gone theory-mad to such Jm extent as to be showing the edue&- tlonal entry its heels. Convicts are mt bming the most coddled elas, of the ountry, simply because the r, formatory td has dispensed with the tilumlnaUon of flashes of comm sense" SERVIA RECALLS MINISTER NOTE BREAKS OFF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS. 35,000 Dead and Wounded in Week's Engagements--Greeks Con- tinue Victorious, Belgrade, Servia.--The Servian government has addressed a note to Bulgaria, formally breaking off diplomatic relations and announc- ing the recall of the minister at Sofia. ACcording to the latest advtces, the Servians have recaptured Krivolak. The Servian troops have occupied the town of Kotchana and all the ter- ritory as far as the Greglanltza river. Desperate fighting preceded this achievement, the enemy being driven off, pursued by the Servianu. Describing the five days' operatio';s between Vardar and Krivolak, says that after holding a greatly superior force in check, the Servians were obliged to retire. Thus Krivolak fell into the hands of the Bulgarians. It contends, however, that this Bulgarian success was insignificant compared with the Servian success against the Bulgarian right wing. Another semi-offfficial communica- tion says last week's battles Were the longest, bloodiest and hardest fought of all the battles in the Bankans. The Servians lost 15,000 killed and wound- ed; the Bulgarians 20,000. ,..=._, FIRE WIPES OUT STURfilS, KY. Bueineos Building on Both Sides of Main Street and Thirty Dwellings Have Been Destroyed.

Gettysburg, Pa.--Seven men were stabbed in a fight in the dining room of the Gettysburg Hotel as a result of a row which started when a Union veteran resented abuse of Lin- coln. The man whom the police charge with doing the stabbing gave his name as W. P. Henry, Philadelphia. He said he was a son of R. R. Henry, of Tazewell, Vs., a general in the Con- federate army. Henry, with one or two companions, was seated at a table and a general talk about the war soon developed ugly feeling. According to witnesses. Henry applied an epithet to Abraham Lincoln. It was resented hotly by a Union veteran, who seized a glass or bottle and threw it at Henry. Immediately there was an uproar, and Henry, according to a member of the conntabulary, lumped to his feet, drew a knife and began slashing at those nearest to him. One witness said Henry chased him around the room, stabbing him in the arm and in the back. Women fled for the doors and crowded "to the windows ready to jump. The fight was over before the occupants realized its seriousness. A roaring storm that swept down out of the Blue Ridge over the pla- teau of Gettysburg brought needed relief to the thousands of veterans who have sweltered for four days in an atmosphere that would do credit to a fireless cooker, but is dangerous in a city of 50,000 old and weary men. 72 YEARS WITH ONE CONCERN __-L___ Wagon Maker Hads Business; Is Early at Work and Last to Leave His Post., Nekosha, Wis.--George Yale, vet- eras wagon maker, completed 72 years of continuous service with one f)rm here.

British Soldiers Preserve Order When Angry Canadian Civilians Attack Enthusiastic American. Winnipeg, Manitoba.--The waving of the United States flag here while thousands of provincial soldiers were parading the streets precipitated a riot. The flag was trampled and torn and a number of persons received minor injuries. The incident occurred at the time when thousands of soidiers from Win- nipeg and Manitoba were marching through the city on their return from" annual camp at Sewell, near Brandon, where there had been maneuvers un- der Sir Ian Hamilton, famous British South African war general. When the 100th regiment was before a local bank, an American appeared on the curbing, waved an-American flag and shouted "Hurrah for the Aineriean eagle." Col. Mitchell, in command of the regiment, ordered one of his men to request the American to put away the flag, but before the sol- dier could reach the American, a number of angry civilians pounced upon him, tore the flag from his grasp and hurled it into the street. Before it could be rescued the flg was torn and dirtied. In the-free-for-all fight which fol- lowed a number of civilians were in- jured, but none seriously. The Amer- ican, whose name could not be ascer- tained, escaped without serious harm and, with the aid of the police, eluded the crowd. Soldiers of the regiment preserved perfect order and took no part in the demonstration.

STORY HE TOLD UNFOUNDED Declares He Took Resolution to Mot, gan, Thinking Steel People Would Make Concessionsand There- by Esc;)e U. S. Probe. Washington.--Criminal prosecution of those concerned in the impersona. tion of congressmen in connection with Wall street's lobbying is to be sought if the senate lobby investigat- ing committee has its way. This was indicated plainly when the committee forced Edward Lauterbach, New York lawyer, publicly to waive i:nmunity before it would permit him to continue his story of his relations with David Lamar, the "Wolf of Wall street." Lauterbach, under a fierce fire el interrogations by Senator Reed of Mis. souri, was forced to admit that he had lied when he told Lewis Cass Ledyard, Morgan lawyer, that he had inveati. gated the sentiment of the Democrats in Washington and knew they were opposed to any real investigation of the steel trust He also had to admit he had lied when he told. Charles Steele of Morgan & Co., that he could answer "with autthority" that Presi. dent Taft was opposed to the steel in. quiry. Ledyard's Testimony Read. Lauterbach became much confused and frequently contradicted imself. The committee established that he had been in almost -onstant communion. lion with David Lamer, and the wit- hess admitted that before Lamar tes- tified he had conferred with him. Senator Overman read the entire testimony of Ledyard, in wh'ch he told of Lauterbach clafining to repr sent Speaker Clarke, Senator Stone of Missouri, and other Democratic lead. ors and presenting to him (Ledyard) as the representative of the Morgan interests a comprehensive plan of what Wall street could expect at the hands of the Democrats. As soon as Senator Overman con- cluded reading the story of how Lau. terbaeh claimed personally to repr sent Senator Stone, who in turn rep resented Speaker Clark. Reed de- manded an executive session of the committee, and the members retired to consult. Stone Scowled at Witness. Senator Stone came in and' took a seat at the front of the room, where he scowled at the witness. He was prepared to testify in support of his assertion that Lauterbach's story, as told by Ledyard, was "an utter, abso- lute demned lie, without the slightest semblance of foundation." When the committee came out of the conference. Senator Overmansaid: "Mr. Lauterbach, you came here vol- untarily? .... I did so," the witness re. sponded. "I want to say that if there is any question of immunity, I hereby waive it absolutely." "That is satisfactory," ruled Chair. man Overman. "Now go ahead and make any statement you desire." Lauterbach then read his original testimony, in which he had explained to the committee that in all his inter. views dth Ledyard and representa- tives of Morgan & Co. he had only one object in view--regaining the good' graces for professional reasons, of Morgan & Co. He then denied that he knew anything of tamer's telephonic impersonations of public men. Became Rogers  Attorney. "Mr. Lamer was my friend," he said, "and I realized that-I had lost my en- tire law practice because of his friend- ship tor me. But I knew he was hon- est. I met him first in 1896. when he represented the Gould and Sage inter- ests in the Manhattan Elevated rail- road at the time. Banker Kissell was trying to unite it with the Metropoli- tan system. "Mr. Lamer hacl done many honors, hie things for me. He got Mr. Rogers (H. H.) of Standard Oil fame, to be my personal client, and I did many big things for Mr. Rogers as a result, no- tably preventing the Guggenbeims tak- ing the American Smelting Co. under their control in their own way. "On Feb. 6 I met Mr. Ledyard, and his story of that first meeting is sub, stanttally correct. This meeting w:t in his office." Lauterbach denied, however, that he had admitted to Ledyard that David Lamer was a "blackmatlex." While he was reading, Lamer took a seat at the. left of the witness and followed closely his friend's story. He had lost his carefree, joking air. Wilson at Golf With 8ayre.
