MORAL IN COURT SCENE.
Minister Points Out Lesson in Famous
Writing In the Chicago American of
the trial of the famous "car barn ban-
dits,” the Rev. W. H. Carwardlne says:
Tho proceedings of the great car
barn trial yesterday were Intensely In-
teresting from a moral standpoint.
As the case moves forward It has
now arrived at the stage In which the
terrible realism of tho awful details
is apparent. It reminds me of a Rem-
brandt painting. Whatever of light
there may have been, the dark shades
are growing darker and deeper of hue
with every succeeding hour.
Assistant State’s Attorney Olson
may not be an artist, but he has all
the genius of one. His strokes ure
masterly, his colors are well laid on;
he.Is deft with his brush; his canvas
Is fast filling up, and his picture is
assuming that phase In which with ter-
rific vividness It now begins to stand
forth a completed work of art.
You never find him napping.
Quick, keen, incisive, he moves to
the point and leaves no detail of nec-
essary evidence unpresented.
1 say he Is an artist. He Is giving
Chicago young men the greatest moral
picture they have ever beheld.
There are times when we pity the
young bandits. Underneath their ap-
parent bravado there must be some
glimmering of remorse, sorrow, even
repentance. Surely they must occa-
sionally ask themselves: "Did It pay?”
Does it pay to lead a life of crime,
to surrender one’s youth to the im-
pulses of a base nature, to gloat over
dime novel heroes, dethrone reason
with whisky, cigarettes and other con-
comitants of vice? Does it pay to rob
and murder and live tho life of a dare-
devil bandit and a brawling saloon
How can this "automatic trio” ex-
pect mercy from the Jury after the
startling and positive evidence of yes-
We all have a natural desire for
mercy, not wishing harm to any indi-
vidual. but who could look about that
courtroom and note the sad faces of
women dressed in deep mourning ami
then expect mercy?
There was Sovea’s mother, Mrs.
James McMahon. She was robbed of
her son by these men. There was Mrs.
Driscoll. She was made a widow by
them. The wives of Officers Driscoll
and Quinn might have been present to
see the men who shot their husbands.
There sat Mr. Stewart, father of young
Stewart, murdered in cold blood by the
wretched trio. In the* face of all
this, how can we expect these desper-
adoes to escape the inevitable end?
I say again, "Does It pay?”
I pity Mrs. Van Dine and Mrs. Nied-
ermeyer—two absolutely different
types of women, but mothers, with the
mothers love deep-rooted.
It is evident that VanDlne had some
love for his mother. In the testimony
yesterday It. was related several times
that when he was captured after the
Indiana dug-out fight, he exclaimed:
"For God’s sake don't shoot. I sur-
render. 1 am ready to die; but I want
to see my mother and my sweetheart
before I die."
A feature of the trial yesterday was
the presence of so many well-dressed

RICH WOMAN TEACHES SINGING.
Gives Her Time Purely in Interest of
One of New York’s wealthy women
has this year become a singing teach-
er, not for the sake of the money she
might earn nor purely from her In-
terest in the art. She has studied
singing herself, knows its principles
from study and practice and is quite
capable of doing well the work she
has undertaken. But had it not been
for her desire to help a teacher in
whom she was interested she might
never have undertaken to transmit
her knowledge to others. The desire
to keep together the pupils of a teach-
er who is ill led her to take the care
of them herself. So her classes now
meet at certain hours weekly In one
of New York’s handsomest homes to
take their singing lessons from a
teacher whose income is certainly not
less than $80,000 a year.
