But A1 Smith at this moment is a
candidate for the presidency. He is
taking the thing seriously. And, for
reasons that will be understood west
of Hoboken, A1 Smith doesn't want
to be tied up too closely with Tam
many. That isn't exactly ingratitude.
It is true that A1 Smith has been in
Tammany all his life, and has made
every dollar that he has through
Tammany, and got every office that
he ever got through Tammany. But
in politics it's necessary to forget.
And it is only reasonable caution for
A1 Smith, as presidential candidate,
to cross to tho other side of the street

All England’s art critics, and hall
the population of the British Islands,
are discussing a portrait of the king
by Charles Sims, In the royal acad
emy. Some critics say “the face
lacks dignity.” Others say "the legs
lack character.” The artist admits
that somebody, not the king “posed
for the legs."
Just why a king's legs have more
character than other legs Is not stat
ed. The interesting thing to us proud,
republican sovereigns is that Eng
lishmen discuss a portrait of their
king more earnestly than they ever
discuss the king himself.
Viewed from this distance, King
George seems a pretty good sort of
king. The things that he does not
do are at least as Important as those
he does. He sets a good example
and doesn’t interfere with the British
government, which Is really demo
cratic, closer to the people and more
within the people’s control than our
own government, for Instance.
King George Is guided to a large
extent—as all men ought to be—by
his wife, a sensible woman, who
wears dresses of the old kind, high
shoes that button «p, and that don’t

Henry Ford refuses to discuss his
Muscle Shoals proposition in Wash

wrote out his proposition which
would have given more l*ian $200,
000,000 to the government. The Sen
ate has had the written offer for two
years and ought to know what Is In
It by this time.
Most of the opposition to Henry
Ford Is the opposition of grafters
that would like to get government
property without giving anything real
in exchange for It. But some of the
opposition Is sincere. It Includes the
opposition of Senator Norris, an
ean/^est, honest and able man. Sena
tor Norris’ opposition Is courageous,
inasmuch as the farmers will hold
him responsible for the final result.
A nervous young woman, called the

with criminals, young and old, than

that in the long run do more good or

News from Washington says Pres
ident Coolidge will shield the nation
from "blocs” in congress by the firm
use of the veto. This refers probably,
and unfortunately, only to such blocs
as venture to unite In favor of tho

There Is only one Important "bloc"
in congress and that is the corpora
President Coolidge will find plenty
of opportunities to use his veto on

Canada Sets Good Example in
Eliminating Tariff Barriers
Prom Chicago Journal of Commerce.
Canada has helped herself and (he United States materially by
voting tariff reductions on many items which she imports from
the United States. The United States can do herself and Ce.nada
a similarly good turn by making certain tariff reductions. Both
countries would be aided by such a lowering of the trade barriers.
An example of the mutual benefit resulting from tariff re
duction is to be found in the case of the American farm implement
industry. Here is an industry which is in real distress. Now
Canada reduces her tariff on farm implements. The reduction
ranges from 4 to 12V& per cent. As a result, the American manu
facturers will be aided. And the enlargement of their market
will tend to ease their financial position and thus lower the
price of farm implements to American farmers.
Most of the world’s ills since the Armistice have been due to
reprisals, embargoes, and all the other manifestations of jealousy.
The United States and the British Empire are the two great na
tions which are undonbtedly solvent. They are capable of setting
an example to the rest of the world. They should make every ef
fort to do away with spite barriers.
One of these nuisance fences has been eretted between the
United States and Canada. As a result, there was talk of reprisal
and wre came near losing our pulpwood. Agitation for an absolute
embargo on all exports of pulpwood is still strong in Canada,
largely as a result of our tariff on Canadian wheat and cattle.
These duties have done the American farmer little good and
have done the United States as a whole a distinct harqg In some
cases, indeed, the faruer himself has been injured by4he indirect
results of the tariff on wheat and cattle from Canada. This tar
iff should be eliminated, and at the same time We should care
fully consider anew our tariff relations with the entire world.
Europe owes us about twenty billions, including the loans
advanced by the United States government. The opinion of the
vast majority of Americans is that the debt should be paid, that
interest payments should be made at once, and that some of the
principal should also be immediately forthcoming.
But the debt can be paid only in gold or in goods and services.
Payment in gold is out of the question. Accordingly we must de
cide whether we shall cancel ihe European debt, in whole or in
part, or whether we shall set up a trade and tariff system wherby
Europe can sell us more Juan she buys from us, with the least
disadvantage to our industries.
There are difficulties in this problem which may delay its
solution. But the difficulties in the Canadian tariff problem are
few, and we should solve it at once.

Teach Children to Save.
From the Thrift Magazine.
We should not neglect to teach
the children the meaning of thrift
and to see thgt they practice it.
Such lessons learned in childhood
make a lasting impression and are
Invaluable. The minds of children
are plastic—they are unprejudiced
and are open to receive impres
sions. If we will inculcate in their
minds the principles of thrift we
will discover that nine times out
of ten we have laid the founda
tion for much good and when
these children grow into man
hood and womanhood they will not
bo likely to forget the lessons
taught them in their early years.
Lawrence F. Abbott In the Outlook.
Roosevelt once wrote from the
White House—to be exact, December
16, 1904—to the French poet. Mist
ral, a letter which It Is appropriate
and stimulating to recall at this
time, when the shady side of Ameri
can political life is being so un
pleasantly revealed at Washington.
« In that letter he said;
All success to you and your
associates! You are teaching
the lesson that none need more
to learn than we of the West, wo
of the eager, restless, wealth
seeking nation; the lesson that
after a certain not very high lev
el of material well being has
been reached, then the things
that really count in life are the
tilings of the spirit. Factories
and railways are good up to a
certain point; but courage and
endurance, love of wife and
child, love of home and country,
love of lover for sweetheart, love
of beauty In man’s work and In
nature, love and emulation of
daring and of lofty eudeavor,
the homely workaday virtues
and the heroic virtues—these
are better still, and if they are
licking, no piled-up riches, no
rearing, clanging Industrialism,
no feverish and many-sided ac
tivity shall avail either the In
dividual or the nation. I do not
undervalue these tilings of a na
tion’s body; I only desire that
they shall not make us forget
ttyat besido the nation’s body
there is also the nation’s soul.

What we need In the coming pres

call the country back to common
honesty of thought and action. It is,
however, not surprising to find dec

nouncement the first revelation of a
sentiment of contempt for the plain

Younger Women Luckier

The explanation of the Jury’s action
seems to bo that the woman Is 60
years old, and the man who stole the
kiss was 30. The Jury, however, did
not compel ker to pay the young man
Women past 60 don’t seem to have
the luck in the courts that younger
women have. In fact, It is generally
held to bo risky for a woman of 55
or 60 to shoot a mjn becauso she
loves him; somo JuTies will bring in
