Coolidge Has Advantage In Still Hunt
For Delegates; Proposal Not for Him
From the New York World.
The Coolidge political organization is to be like the Federal
Reserve System or the Ford car-distributing plan. Despatches
from Washington present details. The country is to be divided
into regions. In the capital of each will be a regional manner,
head of the local hunt but responsible to a central committee head
ed by Charles D. Hilles of New York. George Harvey will be an
unofficial but very alert master of the hounds.
In Washington the president’s secretary, Mr. Slemp, will have
a roving command of the Southern field, where the hunter who
knows how to bring down delegates must thread the mazes of the
blue-gum forest and paddle noiselessly up the old bayou. While
bo doing he must arrange to get to each point ahead of Hiram
Johnson’s equally skilled Southern woodsman, Frank H. Hitch
The president himself, although soon to become “an active
candidate," will not “personally participate" in the regional act
ivities of his organization. His message will be his platform, his
acts his recor.d. Senator Johnson and Le Follette and Governor
Pinchot of Pennsylvania might be glad to swap their so-called per
sonal participation in their own candidacies for President Coo
lidge ’s method. Only, one has to be President to do it that wal.
Not so elaborate but just as earnest is Mr. Johnson’s cam
paigning system. His activities will be divided into three groups;
political, headed by Mr. Hitchcock and ranging in much the same
territory that the Union commanders fought over; popular, headed
by committees of dilettante radicals; and personal, headed by Mr.
Johnson himself.
The personal movement was begun before the Cook County
Real Estate Board last week; the popular movement has heen at
work for eleven years: and the first gun in the political movement
was fired at Speaker Machold when Mr. Johnson’s New York
manager proposed a presidential preference primary for the state.
To grant it, he promised, would mean republican victory in New
York for ten years and Johnson support of a possible other vic
tory. To deny it would mean democratic control of this state
for a “generation."
The Coolidge forces, figuring that they will get 20 years the
worst of it either way, may be expected to decline the proposal.
Slaving, Dreaming of Frontier Mothers
Back of Middlewest Civilization Today
lioiucu v^uiun. iu iuu na w rcjo,
The mothers of the frontier! They felt the oncoming of another day
for their children. No life was so laborious, no situation so unpropitlous,
no poverty so deep that they did not through a divine gift of prophecy
see beyond the gloom a better day for their children. In the smoky over
heated kitchens, struggling to feed the “gangs” of harvesters and thrash
ers, as they washed and mopped and baked and brewed and spun and
wove and knit and boiled soap and mended and cut and basted and sewed
and strained milk and skimmed cream and churned and worked over but
ter, catching now and then an opportunity to read while rocking a child
tc sleep, drinking in once in a while a bit of poetry from the sky or the
cloud or the flower; they were haloed like suns of progress for their fami
lies and for the nation, as they worked and planned and assumed for
themselves a higher and higher culture of its sort.—all for their children.
We build monuments in the public square for the soldiers of our wars;
but where is the monument for the Kate McConkeys who made possible
so much of the good which is represented by the public square itself?
Unless it is a monument not made with hands, in our hearts and souls,
none can ever exist which can be in any way adequate.
Any Anthracite Relief Must Come
Through Regulations in Pennsylvania
From the Minneapolis Journal.
Governor Preus is on his way to attend Governor Pinchot's
conference of anthracite-using states. Minnesota, should, of
course, make her voice heard that gathering, which is to meet
in Pennsylvania, home of the < nthracite monopoly.
But, as Governor Cox of Massachusetts pointed out in a
letter of reply to Governor Pinchot, “the remedy for the present
injustice seems to be wholly within the control of Pennsylvania."
Indeed, Governor Pinchot is likely to have this truth hurled
at him from many directions in gubernational discussion. He
will be told in varying tones of voice that Pennsylvania has the
cure for most of the hard coal extortion in her own hands, and
that it is high time she began to administer her natural monopoly
with some regard to the rights of the people of other states.
Governor Cox enumerated three things that the Legislature
of Pennsylvania ought to do:
Repeal the unjust tax which the State now levies on every
shoveful of anthracite that is mined;
Repeal the restrictive legislation on mine employment, and thus
increase the volume of production; and
Fix a definite standard of qualitiy and e^ze fvr the protection of
Fix a definite standard of quality and size for the protection
of consumers.
Minnesota criticism of the tonnage tax on hard coal in
Pennsylvania will probably provoke the retort that Minnesota
has a tonnage tax on iron ore. The cases are not parallel, how
ever. Pennsylvania has a monopoly of hard coal, while Minne
sota iron ore must meet competition. The hard coal tax of 50 cents
a ton means that at least oO cents is added to the price of every
ton sold to consumers. The iron ore tax is taken out of profits,
and does not increase the cost of products to the consumer.
Pennsylvania is directly taxing every burner of hard coal.
The employment restrictions are such as to give the Miners'
Union a practical monopoly of the labor of taking the coal out of
the ground. They mean that a strike is always effective, no mat
ter what is justice.
The lack of standards of quality and size is responsible for
sale of much unburnable slate under the guise of anthracite, and
for other losses. Since Pennsylvania has all the available an
thracite within her borders, she should take pride in seeing that
it is properly graded and inspected, just as Minnesota for so
many years has guarded her grain shipments.

The man who does things has our
admiration. It doesn’t (matter In
what way. If he makes a successful
business deal, or creates a running
record, or marries a charming girl,
we admire him. But we dislike the
"lounge lizard” type—the man who Is
too lazy to work, who regards all
sport as a "beastly fag," who hangs
about dance halls all his time, and
who talks cheaply about girls.
We like the man who doesn’t keep
airing his opinion in a loud and
audible voice. We regard It as bad
form. The ''loud" man Is awful,
whatever form his "loudness” takes.
Providing he Is generous, gentlemanly
with girls, smart in appearance,
makes something of his life, and is
not self-assertive, a man can exact
every ounce of admiration from his
masculine friends.
