PLEASANT GROVE NEWS Telepaplrj SAYS 1909 TO 1910 rHapdto-DispIace Them with Machines Operator By P. EVAN JONES HE MORSE telegrapher who operates a key and picks dots and" dashes from an ear-piercing little rattle and on whom inven tors and electrical engineers have been training their guns 9-gggrt,oC eiterminatioja.i.ora .qxmrtetoLaeul seems to have just won at least a partial victory over machine telegrahping and has declared himself or herself still on duty, if you please. ' -'-' '..'.- jOn October 15 last one big company boxed up its printing print-ing machines, which it had installed on several of its heavy . wires' during the big stfike"of 1907 and returned the key and Kinder workers to the wires. The reason for, this action -is not known, but the ielegrahers',dcclare.lhaLjt'jwa4.:Ux'ause the work of the machines was not up io the demand. - telegraphers say that machine telegraphing is unsatisfactory because the machine at the receiving end "has not the brains of even an oiioratory and cannot correct 'the mistakes by "breaking" and having doubtful words confirmed" without a heavy delay to the message. The machines are also declared to be delicate and will not work during dur-ing storms and electrical disturbances, which makes it necessary to keep a large force of Morse ojierators in reserve. A wire troubled with poor -r insulation and heavy "induction" "from another telegraph wire or a trofley wire, if is said, may be worked to absolute' satisfaction by the old key and Bounder method. Probably the first machine to gain .recognition of any account since "the keys and sounders began to be used was when another company im , ported the Wheaistone from England some 20 years or so ago. This was worked extensively for a number of years and ia worked jt between Chicago and SanJFraneisco. . It -was a rapid system of telegraphy aittt-W' indispensable" when or where thejewa8 afctjortage of Mires," but before. telegrams coiild be transmitted trans-mitted by the-Wheatstone they. had. to be prepared by punching holes in. a tape anl again transcribed from a tape at the receiving end. , Long distance Morse wjrcs, due to improved 'repeating" 're-peating" devices, displaced .the Wheatstono to a large extent in the latter part of the ninvties. Since then the companies have experimented with various automatic auto-matic printing systems, nearly all of v?iich were dis-fardc371hebld dis-fardc371hebld patents gaIonuan(I aplTedTo" new machines, the printing telegraph machines resulting- 1 , , 1 How Far Free Speech Can Go with Safety Br LAFAYETTE C BUI1 IIow far can free speech safely go in a free country? It depends. If by free speech ia meant the irresponsible and idle utterances of unbridled tongues'; if its evident evi-dent purpose is to barm the individual, or work mischief "in the community; if in itself it can be seen to be venomous and hurtful; then, like all noiious. things, it should be suppressed. If, however, it is merely the honest expression ex-pression of individual opinion, however widely it may differ from established views or preconceived notions, it should be given the widest latitude consistent with the common com-mon welfare. Viewed even from this latter standpoint it cannot be considered con-sidered an almolute right, but must be exercised, always and everywhere, with due reference and reiet to the rights of the community as a whole. 'In other word, it must conform to some law or rule of conduct. If we could imagine a country in which each individual was a law unto himself, where there was no restriction upon what he might Bar "or do, we should have- anarchy a land of chaos, where reputations woulJ "fall like autumn limes," and life itself be not worth the living. A country that is really free mut 1 a "government eHaws and DOl of men;." and if of laws, then its laws must be of equal application to ewvthjng that affects its people as a whole.

Grosscup of the United States 'court of appeals, writing In . the North American Review under the caption, "Prosperity with Justif'l advocates the rise of a newpo- liticfll party committed to the policy, of an equal distribution among all men of the fruits of their labor. Judge Grosscup holds that the society of the future must be founded on "a proprietary copartnership co-partnership in corporate success," and adds that he.la-.now'. ready-to reonee his loyalty tot'be Republican" party ip favor of a new party which shall have for its purpose the establishment of a policy of justice and equity to all mankind. The period of awakening in America, says Judge Grosscup, came with the administration of . Mr. Roosevelt. Doctrines -which rannot now be forgotten and which must be worked into the very fabric of our national life were theiL enunciated. Corporate gred must be curhed,4he-tarift jnust-be jnust-be reywed and a scheme devised which will work Justice to the common man. - . - Judge Grosscup believes that the present administration is not only falling fall-ing to carry out the policies inaugurated by Col. Roosevelt, but is assuming a reactionary attitude which Is making the burden of the worker, more op- , pressive and intolerable than before. Hence the need of a fresh party. As to the actual work for reform accomplished by tbe former presldent-Judge 1-fosecup eaysr - - - ; " - "Tbe eeptral figure of this period (the period of awakening) was Presl-dent Presl-dent Roosevelt. There are those blind enough to the faults of this icinark-able icinark-able man to see In him a greater msn than" Lincoln; "and those blind enough to his virtues not to see in him the extraordinary insight that gave to him, as to Lincoln, his leadership among men. But. noone saw more clearly than Mr. Roosevelt that his administration had accomplished little In the actual work of refraining the laws to carry out ita spirit no one s.aw more clearly than he that his w ork w as chiefly that of a preacher of righteousness. "To bis successor wholly selected by himself wag left the. constructive work that w as expected to be done. Roosevelt bad summoned ..the people, had Impaneled them as i, great Jury before whom to frame and to whom to submit, one after another, tbe constructive proposals that would carry out the purpose of the awakening. The' proposals themselves he left to. be framed and submitted by his successor. GREAT LAWYER SAVES WOMAN tef When Samuel Untermyer of New York, one of the greatest of the country's corporation lawyers, law-yers, whs appointed several weeks ago byn Justice Jus-tice M alone of the supreme court of New "York to defend Augusta Crlslntl, charged with the tour d-r of her husband, the bar was amazed and wondered what be would do with the case. Mr. 1'ntermyer had not been tonnected with a murder case tor years. He bad not been Inside a courtroom In connection with a case of such ' minor importance In a long while and necessarily his frlejids believed he had forgotten many of the tricks that make criminal lawyers successful. Hut the. "doubting Thomases" didn't take Into consideration the kiud of man they had to deal with. When the court appoints a lawyer for a person too poor to retain legal counsel the attorney la allowed ."U0 aa a fee. To Mr. t'nterniyer $.00 means iioHiing, o it was not to get the money, as subsequent events show, that he .entered the case with such seal. He worked night nd day for the poor Italian woman. He spent fl.000 out of his own pocket and when the Jury came In with a verdict of "not guilty" Mr. I'ntemiyer gave tbe l.'-OO the slate owed Urn to the prisoner. He had wived Uer life and given la r what seemed to her a fortune, more money than she had ever had in her life. - ' Recently, when the Judges of New York were criticised fur assigning certain types of lawyers to defend capital criminal cases, they asked the ii. i inters of tlm New York bar for hvlp. Attorney l'nieriuyr was one of thw I;.. wLo repunded to the Judges' rail and agreed to take a criminal case oj utfciouaily even though It meant flranrial loss. "We lawyers owe i.ometl.li.g to the dignity of the business," I'ntermyer is quuted as saying "We are sworn officers of the court and of Justice." NEW .MINISTER TO CHINA Being and Doing. i It la said.
