For a week congress has been letting off steam ,
over the oil scandal. Barring the uncommonly fine
and dispassionate statement of the case by Senator
Walsh, of Montana, the oratorical glory of Capitol
Hill was not enhanced. For the most part, discussion
consisted of political speeches obviously delivered
for partisan effect. Men like Heflin, of Alabama, a
survivor of the ancient school of flowery spollbinding,
revel in situations like the Teapot Dome affair.
Sharpshooters of “Jim" Reed’s skill enjoy such oppor
tunities for sniping, too. There was an amazing dis
inclination on the part of senators in both parties to
concentrate on essentials. There was also a universal
tendency to go over the same ground interminably.
Not for months has such a Niagara of words rolled
over the congressional cliffs.
Two men maintained silence during the oil talk
fest—La Follette of Wisconsin and Borah of Idaho.
Each would have contributed something real to the
discussion. It was "Fighting Bob” who early in 1923
blazed the trail which, he claimed, would lead to oil
iniquities if it was followed long enough. Borah, the
^ilver-tongued crusader of congress, is at his best
when battling over moral issues. He Is certain to be
heard from before the air is cleare4 of the petro
liferous stench that now pollutes it.
Representative Victor L. Berger, Socialist, of
Wisconsin, thinks Ramsay MacDonald’s achievement of
the British premiership mak?s it timely to restore
Eugene V. Deb’s status as a patriotic an4 high-minded
citizen of the world. To that end, Berger has nomi
nated Debs as a candidate for the 1924 Nobel peace
prize. Tho Wisconsin socialist says he 11 entitled to
do so because it was through him that Debs joined
the socialist cause. Debs has a claim on the Nobel
- prize money. Berger avers, "because for over 30 years
he has never wavered in his belief of universal peace
and human brotherhood and has been tireless in his ef
fort and service of that idea." Bergr r’a mautafoso on
Deba’ behalf narrates that there are 23 members <tt
the British parliament who, like Debs, have “done
time" for their political opinions anent the world
■war, including Premier MacDonald himself.
One of the most popular foreign diplomats ever
stationed at Washington, Sadao Saburi, counselor of
the Japanese embassy, is leaving this country for
eventual duty at another capital, lie Is due for pro
motion to a ministership and probably will he sent to
some Important European outpost like Stockholm.
Saburi has been at Washington for five years, serving
under the ambassadorships of Ishil, Shidehara and
Hanihara. A charming consort, the daughter of a
famous Japanese statesman, Baron K>*\nura, helped
Saburi to become a capable and well ilke.l official of
Nippon in the highly charged atmosphere of \Yashing
ton. Saburi was a member of the Japanese delega
tion at the Paris peace conference the diplomats
who talked less and achieved more than any mission

That legislative enormity adopted
by the general assembly of Alabama
with the consent of Mr. Underwood,
which was expected to guarantee the
senator the vote of that state, has
been properly characterized by At
torney-General Harwell G. Davis ui
[ Alabama. He says:
“It will be noted that this law does
not leave to the organization of the
political party or those duly author
ized to act in behalf of the organlza- |
tion, the privilege ot determining
whether or not the party should hold
a primary election. The act makes
the political party amj those duly
authorized to speak in its behalf sub
servient to the wish and will of one
citizen of Alabama in whom is vested
no authority to act for such politl- ,
cal organization. Reduced to the
greatest possible absurdity, this law
permits one person to compel a po
litical party of 200,000 voters to hold
a primary election against the wishes
ot 200,000 of the members of tna
party. Such ait act clearly makes
primary elections compulsory and is
This law was a travesty on democ
racy and Americanism. In agreeing
to its passage in his own Interest Mr.
Underwood gave an insight into his
own fundamental conceptions. ■The
law provides that “whenever a citi
zen of the state of Alabama is a can
didate” no matter if he got but one
vote, he might take precedence over
a candidate from any other state and
had the right to name the delegation.
Mr. Davis has refused to instruct the
officers to put the law into effect.
The chairman of the Underwood
committee announces that the pri
mary will be held nevertheless.
Any candidate for the presidency,
be he from Alabama or any other
state, who accepts it in order to se
cure a delegation to the national
convention is putting himself on a
platform of toryism and autocracy.

Few of his relentless enemies know
that besides being a poet, a novelist,
a dramatist ami a satirist, the
volcanic Strindberg was a deep
thinker, a chemist, a geologist and
a linguist. His erudition was uni
versal. He wrote a history of the
Swedish people, a work on Chinese
linguistics, another on the mutual re
lations of Sweden and China and on
Sweden and the Tatar natlonaltles.
This latter work was given serious
consideration by the Paris Academy
of Science. Strindberg was a highly
trained gardener, an expert natur
alist, and he possessed a remarkably
rich and complete aquarium and her
barium. He worked something like
18 hours out of 24- His brain seemed

Signing Contracts “Not Understood” is
Poor Showing of Official Efficiency
From the Milwaukee Journal.
It is kindly to think, as Secretary Denby told the investigat
ing committee, that the leases which developed the oil scandal
were “too technical” for him. But this testimony alone makes it
unthinkable that he should continue as secretary of the navy.
For the record of the Senate investigating committee shows that
Mr. Denby had a decisive hand in the transactions which resulted
in depriving the public of its reserve fuel lands, considered vital
to national defense.
Mr. Denby concurred in the transfer of the oil reserves to the
inferior department, despite the fact that congress had by spe
cial act confirmed the placing of this public property in the care
of the navy department for safekeeping, and the supreme court of
the United States had put its seal of approval on congress fore
sight. Mr. Denby recommended the transfer over the protests of
Rear Admiral Griffin, who was in charge of the reserves, and of
other naval officers. Admiral Griffin was retired in advance of
his time; other'protesting naval officers were transferred to other
duties, where they could not interfere; and Secretary Fall wrote
to Oil Magnate Doheny that he could deal directly with Mr. Do
heny’s representatives, “since I have got that navy crowd off my
Moreover, in his testimony, Mr. Doheny was quoted as saying
that Mr. Denby stiggested the terms of the lease from which Mr.
Doheny boasted he expected to make $100,000,000. Be that as it
may, Secretary Denby at least signed the leases with Fall, although
when pressed for the reasons why he did so, the secretary of the
navy pleaded that he did not fully understand them because that
they were “too technical.” Pressed further to name one naval
officer who approved the transfer, he said he could not. And
this is the man who now says that “I would do it again tomor
