The total American casualty list
for the war is placed at 293, 0S&, in

is small in comparison to the lists
of the European countries.

With the Maine legislature in
special session this week to ratify
the suffrage amendment, the ratifi
cation game enters upon its second
"half." California's ratification
last week brought the number of
ratifying states up to eighteen, just
half of the required thirty-six.
Maine will be the nineteenth. Can
seventeen more be got in time for
next year's national election? That
is a close question. There are nine
full suffrage states which have not
yet acted Oklahoma, Washington,
South Dakota, Nevada. Colorado,
Arizona, Wyoming, Oregon, and
Idaho. All these will finally rati

sions to ratify? Four states where

is soon to meet in special session

states ratify in time, the favorable

sixteen must be secured. Two of
these, Alabama and Georgia, have
already refused to ratify. The

sities of the case, insuring that na
tional party committees will put
the screws to the local politicians

would not be burning very bright.
TURMOIL IN AUSTRALIA.
New leaders are needed in many
countries to guide the people out of
the wilderness of post-war problems
and the need seems to be especially
felt in Australia, where the spread
of bolshevism and the influence of
reactionary political ideas form an
admirable combination for unrest
This is the way it look3 to an
Australian correspondent of the
London National Review, who Is
positive in his declaration that "it is
becoming obvious that the future of
Australia depends on the Aneacs,"
and "signs that they understand
this are multiplying." The impres-
rion of home that the Anzac got on
his return from the battlefields of
Europe may "be gathered fuoni the
remark of one that if this is the
peace, let's get back to war."
"He was merely considering the
middle sheet of a Melbourne news
paper," says this writer, "headlined
with strikes and rumors of strikes
and dotted all over with complaints
about government extravagance and
private profiteering, repatriation de
lays and arbitration eccentricities.
The acting prime minister and the
judge of the arbitration court were
arguing in a tone of repressed bit
terness up and down one column; in
another, next door" to the festivities
welcoming the return of our war
ships, alleged naval officers ventil
ated their grievances about delayed
promotion; across the page stretched
the official announcement of restric
tions on the use of gas and elec
tricity, far more drastic than any
issued while the war was on. That
page was backed with a huge adver
tisement of an astounding . cheap
sale at which prices averaged 250
per cent advance on ' the ordinary
prices of 1917.
"The seamen have struck on all
coastal boats; the wharf laborers
have struck; the builders' laborers
have struck. Labor on the great
stacks of wheat awaiting export is
hopelessly disorganized. The strike
of seamen and wharf laborers has
thrown out of work at least 50,000
innocent people in Melbourne alone.
State school teachers have threat
ened a stop-work meeting to pro
test against their low pay; state po
licemen have invaded the chief sec
retary's office and harangued him
against his will; other state em
ployes (civil servants, not artisans)
are arranging 'public demonstration'
of their grievances. One section of
coal miners is out of work and an
other is working itself into a strik
"And all this in a country posses
sing the widest suffrage, the most
legislatures (for its size), and the
best arbitration system (according
to its. traveling politicians) in the
world." Literary Digest.
THE GIRLS MEN MARRY.
There seems to be no end to the
fiiecusslcm of marrying and giving
In marriage; and the viewpoints Of
the disputants are as various as
their previous .condition of efetri
tud. The latest td add to the ever
. lambent flame of tha controversy Is
Dr. Kristine Mana, who tells the
International Conference of Women
Physicians that "what svery woman
knows" today is that "pale, weak
women are most appealing to men
because of the chivalrous instinct of
pity aroused in a man by the sight
of fragility and pitiable dependence
Tc this finding many will enter
their respectful demurrer. There is
i.othing particularly attractive to
man in the prospect of having a life
partner whose health is precarious
and who is unable td look to the
ways of her household or to be thi
participant in the husband's inter
rsts in his business or in his rec
rcative hours.' There are all about
us the most beautiful and touching
examples of devotion and interde
pendence between husband and
wife .when the one or the other is
rnfeebled by an inherited or an ac
Cdental ailment but such an ail
ment is a liability and not an asset
in the partnership, and while in the
mid-Victorian days, of which we
hear so much, it may have been
fashionable to look as though one

may have been considered soulful
and spiritual to be unhealthy today
it is held to be morbid and even
immoral to make anything less than

FOUR TO ONE FOR PEACE.
The final ratification of the treaty
of peace by Japan leaves the United
States alone of the five great vic
torious powers holding aloof from
the compact. Only two questions
appear to have been raised at Tokio,
one in regard to the prerogatives of
the emperor and the other as tc the
possible effect of the new engage
ments upon other treaty obligations,
the decision in both cases being
that nothing inimical was found.
If the treaty-wreckers at Wash
ington are to be believed, Great
Britain, France, Italy and., Japan
have compromised their sovereignty,
assumed outrageous burdens, enter
ed upon a career of war and proflig
acy and subjected their domestic af
fairs to intolerable alien intrusion.
Yet is it not reasonably to be sup
posed that these nations are as
jealous of their own interests and as
capable of recognizing them as arc
we or ours, and is it to be imagined
that they have gone blindly into a
trap visible only to the all-seeing
partisan statesmanship of the Unit
ed States senate?'
The truth is that by the terms of
the Versailles covenant what one
government concedes in behalf of
enduring Justice and peace all gov
ernments concede. Formulated by
equals, with a common object, the
agreement is to be enforced by
equals on principles of internation
al law to which all are pledged. It
is only in this country, where the
plan was first urged with any pros
pect of acceptance, that, for person
al and party considerations chiefly,
it is held up to suspicion and threat
ened with defeat. New York World.

THE CALL OF THE WILD
It is a natural and logical thing
that snipers of the I. W. W. Bhould
murder, in cold blood, American
young men fresh from the shambles
For the members of the American
Legion fought for the flag of the re
public, and anarchy and bolshevism
and syndicalism hate the flag. They
hate the republic.
The legionaries fought to estab
lish the supremacy of law and order,
and anarchy hates law and order.
The legionaries fought inspired by
the precepts of the Christian relig
ion, and anarchy hates Christianity.
The legionaries fought for funda
mental morality, and anarchy hates
our code of morals as much as it
hates the laws and institutions which
protect that code.
The legionaries fought to make
the world safe for tiemocracy, and
anarchy fights from ambush, when
it can; openly,- when it dares to
banish democracy from the face of
The I. W. W. murder of the four
ex-soldiers in the Armistice day pa
rade at Centralia, Wash., was, there
fore symbolical of the warfare upon
civilization and all its works that
is being carried forward under the
red flag in this land and in all lands.
It- is a war against all good men
and women, and it is a war against
God. For God, who decreed "the
primal curse"' a misnomer for the
primal blessing that in the sweat
of his brow man should earn his
bread, is hated and cursed by the
hosts of red radicalism.
Their war is for the establish
ment of a new world" that shall defy
and blaspheme God. It is for a new
world that shall overthrow govern
ment, burn the laws, defile and de
ride morality, and establish the jun
gle rule of might over unorganized
and unprotected weakness. It would
tear down the wall3 of every home,
make every woman a piece of public
property, and deliver over every child
to be reared and trained by a god-
iss and unmoral "state" presided
over by .proletarian autocrats like
Lenine. It is a movement to attain
to happiness by establishing a soci
ety, in which Ignorance and Bes
tiality shall be Joint rulers and
where all may live in luxury with
This Call of the Wild is a chal
enge to every man who reverences
God, who loves his home, who jle
ires its protection, who prefers civ
ilization to barbarism, who believes
in law and order and democracy,
who is willing to work hard for an
honest living and who ,volues his
rights to life, liberty, and the prop
erty which his enterprise, labor and
thrift have brought to him.
And it is not alone those who
frankly wave the .red flag thatouud
the. call. Every selfish and consci
enceless profiteer sounds it. Every
idler and parasite, prodigal and lux
urious in the fruits of other mcnTs
toil, sounds it. Every employer who
skimps production to enhance prices
sounds it. Every workman who de
liberately loafs on the Job, refublng
to give an honest day's work for an
honest day's pay,' sounds it. Know
ingly or unknowingly, such as theso,
alike are inviting the advance of the
junglea as it blinks its slimy way to
overrun tha cultivated fields and
fair cities of our modern civilization.!.
fttfht thinking men and women
vefywhere will rally, in the name
of God and humanity, to put down
this foul thing that is the most evil
and abhorrent menace to human hap
piness to appear since time began.
They will combine their strength to
crush it as they would a monstrous
prehistoric reptile threatening their
homes and firesides. And in their
War upon it they will make no dis
tinction between the jungle deni
zens filthy and in rags and those
sweet scented and hypocritical, with
soft bodies and hard faces, that mas
querade in broadcloth and fine linen.
