NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

We are gratified to notice that Congressman Dallinger has sent a protest to Secretary of War Baker against the parole of former Lieutenant Frank H. Smith, known as "Hard-boiled Smith," who has been serving a sentence of a year and a half at the federal penitentiary, after having been found guilty of most cruel treatment of our soldiers.

It is inconceivable that a man who has been found guilty, as the Congressman says, "of the most fiendish cruelties" should be allowed to go free, when soldiers who committed what in comparison to the offenses of "Hard-Boiled Smith" were "trivial infractions of the military code" are still serving, time at Leavenworth. According to newspaper reports, Smith has broken parole. If this is true, surely this transgressor against the spirit of fair play should be again apprehended and placed where the perpetrator of such deeds as he committed belongs.
