folk" and otit-of-town visitor, who
bad gathered to welcome him back
to Marion for his first visit since his
inauguration, liie executive told his
audience he meant to sound no note
"This republic is secure," he
added, "menaces do arise, but public
opinion will efface them. Meanwhile
Koverninent niuitt repress them."
Commenting in a general way on the
industrial situation, the president
made this observation:
"A free American has the right to
labor without any others' leave. It
Mould be no less an abridgement to
deny men to bargain collectively and
governments cannot tolerate any
class or group domination through
force. It will be a sorry day when
group domination is reflected in our
laws, tiovernment, and the laws
which government is charged with
enforcing, must be for all the people,
ocr aiming at the common good."
Describes Greatest Traitor.
The president declared with em
phasis that his "one outstanding con
viction" after 16 months in the White
House was that the greatest traitor
to his country is he who appeals to
prejudice and inflames passion when
sober judgment and honesty of
speech are so necessary to firmly
establish tranquility and security."
Referring briefly to international
relations of the United States, Mr.
Harding said that "all is well."
"They are securer today, with
more assuring prospects of peace,
than ever before in the history of
the republic. New guarantees nave
recently been added, by the very
process ol exchanging viewpoints
and bringing the spokesmen of great
rations to the conference table, and
lor the exchange of views, and to
resolve to do together those fine and
nobler things whioh no one nation
could do alone."
At the outset of his address the
president told his fellow townsmen
it was "exceedingly good to come
liome ami meet with you again."
The text of President Harding's
prepared address follows:
"My Friends and Neighbors:
"It is exceedingly good to come
home and meet with you again and
join you in the centennial celebration
of the founding of Marion. Frankly,
it would be preferable to come sim

to feel a peculiar intimacy toward
such an occasion.

Lincoln. July 4. (Special Tele

workers, who went arm in arm for
years in Nebraska threatened today
to art company.
I A. Migm, secretary ot the Anti-
Saloon league, issued the following
"The league is opposed to the
nomination of Senator Hitchcock,
and looks with disfavor upon any tie
up with him. It will use its influence
to prevent the success of any move
ment intended to enhance his chances
of a nomination ang election. Any
body who ties up with Mr. Hitch
cock is antagonizing our program,
which includes a dry asa successor
to Mr. Hitchcock."
The High statement followed re
ceipt by Brother Charlie Bryan,
candidate for nomination for gover
nor on the democratic ticket, of an
endorsement of Senator Hitchcock,
Mr. Bryan for governor, William J.
McNiehols for licuteti5nt governor
and Kenneth W. McDonald for at

The tieup with Bryan is looked
upon as a double-cross to J. N. Nor

Rev. Paul Matusehka Declares
Denomination in Favor of
Act Since it Became
Law of Land.
The following statement was made
yesterday by the Rev. Paul Ma
tusehka of Lincoln:
From statements made by some
prominent Lutheran pastors in Chi
cago and published ;.u the press July
1, an erroneous impression has been
created regarding the stand of the
Lutherans on prohibition.
In the first place, prohibition has
at all times been regarded by the
Lutheran church as a question of
policy or expediency which the cit
izens may decide in any way they
please i.n order that the greatest
amount of good accrues to the citi
zenship of the commenwcalth.
"The use of liquor in itself is no
sin, any more than the use of cotfec
The Savior, for instance, used wine
for a beverage at the wedding at
Cana, and has used wine in the
eucharist. The Lord neither forbids
nor commands the use of it, if used
moderately. Intemperance, drunk
enness, are under the ban of the
word of God. But the moderate
use is left by the Almighty to the
freedom and discretion of man.
When the prohibition question was
put to a vote of the people a ma
jority of the Lutheran people, per
haps, voted for prohibition because
they never approved of the liquor
traffic by the saloon. A keeper of
a saloon could not, for instance, be
a member in good standing of a
congregation of the Missouri synod.
In its periodicals the question'
whether a Christian could with good
conscience sign a bond for a keeper
of a saloon was answered in the
All of which goes to show that
while the Missouri synod, of which
the pastors quoted in the article re
ferred to are prominent members,
has at no time approved the vicious
liquor traffic, yet at the same time it
held that the moderate use of intoxi
cants is an open question, a qutstion
which every Christian could decide
for himself as he liked. And since
this was so, the church could con
sistently take no stand on prohibition
other than to say that it was a mat
ter of policy or expediency, subject
to the decision of the majority of the
. Teaches Law Obedience.
Howeyer, at this time, afyr pro-
hibition has been enacted into law in I
rnncfnnpiirp nf n rrn c t itn t.n-il
amendment, the status is an entirely
different one. The Lutheran church
teaches its members to obey all laws
of the state as long as they do not
contravene a distinct command of
God. The church, therefore insists
that all its members must obey the j
prohibition laws as well as any other
laws of the state, and warns its n'?m-
hers not to violate the law tor uod s
sake and for the sake of their con
science, according to Romans 13:5,
which reads: "Wherefore ye must
needs be subject not only for wrath
but also for conscience sake."
All of which goes to show that the
Lutheran church, before prohibition
was enacted into law, considered the
using of intoxicants in a moderate
way a question of policy or expedi
ency. Since prohibition has become
a law of the land the church teaches

among others, to embrace a revision
of the recent wage decision of the
railroad labor board, certain changes
in our rules, and the question of
contracting out the labor of the
classes of employes included in our
organization. That the carriers
could not well hvsitate to consider a
revision of the wage decision is in
dicated by the fact that many of
them have already been offering cer
tain changes favorable to certain
"Second: In case of failure to
secure from any carrier fair and
reasonable 'concessions in regard to
the various matters involved, to
bring these matters before the rail

derived from any other course.
