When the Supreme Court of the
United States, on a technicality, re-

the lower court which had sentenced
Truman H. Newberry to the peni-
J tentlary for his corrupt candidacy
for a eat in the senate, it reminded

Court, "the national government is

malign influences."
The senate, to whom the Supreme
Court thus passed the Newberry
case, has bow disposed of it, and in
stead of protecting the national gov
ernment against corruption it has
condoned corruption.
And in doing so it presents the
unprecedented, the pusillanimous
spectacle of pretending to condemn
corruption, yet "vindicating" the
man who profits by corruption.

was expended to elect New-berry and ;
declaring formally that "the expen-j

hereby severely condemned and dis
approved," the senate thereupon
seats the man who profits by this
crime against "sound public policy,"
against "the honor and dignity of
the senate" and against "the per
petuity of a free government." .
Whereupon Newberry issues a
public paen of gratitude for this
"vindication" and "exeroneration"
of himself and "all concerned"
the same being his family and friends
who put up the money to buy his
seat, he claims, without his know
ledge. The senate, by its own resolution,
has vindicated and exeronated no

crime but approved Newberry, the
It has not vindicated and exoner

itself to Newberry's own level. Or
rather, it has prostituted itself to
deeper depths of degradation than
that of Newberry; for it is not like

capable of conceiving so preposter
ous a scheme of degradation as that
to which the senate of the United
States has deliberately descended in
the disposition of his case.

Farmers', in the depth of gloom,
should take cheer at this:
For the first 11 months' of the
year, wheat exports from our coun
try were 269.497.21S bushels In
1921, against. 192,383,961 in 1920,
and 138,566,764 bushels in 1919.'
And, for 11 months, corn exports
were 118,811,271 in 1921, against
14.720, 33? bushels in 1920 and 9,
666544 bushels in 1919.
This again proves that falling off
in foreign trade is largely a price
hoax. The consolation is that these
big grain exports will cut down the
carry-over. That favors higher prices
if or farmers in 1922.
