rect There are too many hyphens left in this
country. What is wanted is a pure and un
mixed Americanism, without taint of other
allegiance. Until this can be had, our work is
at home, rather than abroad. This, however,
may be "provincial," but it was insularity and
a thousand years of hammering that welded the
contents of England's melting pot into an
Giving and Keeping Pledges
'Abhorrent as this conclusion is to those
. who would not make a promise without full
intention of keeping it, it has the merit of
frankness. Neither Mr. Wilson nor anybody
else can tell what the congress in session in
. 1925 or 1930, or in any other year in the future,
will do, and no treaty, even though it be ne
gotiated by a precedent-smashing president
acting as his own plenipotentiary, can over-ride
the constitution of the United States. Yet the
acquiescence of Mr. Wilson's supporters in this
pledge and their simultaneous declaration that
it needn't be kept is no more than a typical
example of the curious doctrine of the viola
bility of pledges of which Mr. Wilson has just
given the counry so conspicuous an example.
We, refer, of course, to President Wilson's
pledge to the senate on July 9 to put at its
iisoosal or at the disposal of the committee on
foreign relations all the information he had
concerning the proposed treaty of peace with
; Germany, and his subsequent refusal to fulfill
that pledge. We have no means- of knowing
whether Mr. Wilson's determination not to ful
fill the pledge of July 9 was formed before it
was uttered or was formed subsequent to its
utterance; the conspicuous and important fact
is that, when he was called on for the informa-
tion he of his own free will and on his own
' initiative had promised the senate he refused to
comply wih its terms.
With so conspicuous an idealistic exem
plar of the quality of concrete promises to
guide them it is not surprising that Mr. Wil
son's supporters should regard entrance into a
solemn engagement with no purpose of fulfill
ing its terms as a light and happy expedient
But that is not the notion the American peo
ple have of such a transaction, and in treating
the covenant of the league of nations the Ameri
can people and not Mr. Wilson's band of inter
nationalists are going to prevail. New York
Sun, . .
In Omaha and elsewhere along his route the
president has alluded to the springing up of a
"pernicious pan-Americanism," suggesting that
it is as abhorrent as pan-Germanism. This, of
course, is a corrollary of his charge of "provin
cialism" against those statesmen who do not
agree with him. It deserves brief examination.
Pan-Germanism as we understand it is bet
ter expressed in the slogan, "Deutschland ueber
Alles." If it means anything pan-Germanism
means German domination of the world, not
merely a coalition of Teutonic races, but the
subjugation of all other nations under the sin
ister rule of the superman.
Pan-Americanism on the contrary has been
fostered by the United States for many years as
a desirable and salutary program. As far back
as President Benjamin Harrison's time, a Pan
American congress assembled in the United
States. Since then sessions have been held at
different American capitals, and a great head
quarters organization is maintained in Wash
ington. This movement' is fostered not to
give one or another of the members any ad
vantage over the others, but to conserve and
forward mutual interests through intelligent co
operative effort It finds its inspiration in the
Monroe doctrine, which recognizes the common
life and interests of all the American republics.
Until the present time it has not been con
sidered "sinister" or "pernicious" in any of its
aspects, unless by those European governments
whose commerce and political aims are ad
versely affected by a common understanding
between American governments.
Such pan-Americanism is not a menace to
peace of the world, the president to the con
trary notwithstanding. It is to preserve the
basic condition of this co-operation that the
senate insists on a specific recognition of the
Monroe doctrine, should it be threatened by
the League of Nations. A settled and accepted
policy of so many years is not to be lightly
abandoned for any vague and uncertain ex
A Warning to British Labor
Ratification or Rejection.
If Mr. Wilson's recent remarks about rati
fication or rejection- of the treaty are to be ac
cepted literally, the real issue in the case ii
practically joined. The senate committee on
foreign relations has reported out the treaty
with forty-five amendments and four reserva
tions. Some, if not all, of these are likely to
be assented to by the senate. The question
then comes, Will the president accept the ver
dict and ratify the senate's work?
At the White House conference the presi
dent was discreetly noncommittal as to whether
he would ratify an amended treaty. On his
present tour he has frankly demanded ratifica
tion or rejection. His course on this point has
had the effect of bringing out against him cer
tain senators who had not accepted the ex
treme possibility of rejection. These for the
most part cling to the belief that moderate
reservations and reasonable amendments are
not insuperable objections to the success of the
treaty. Taking the president at his word,
though, they will prefer rejection to the
acceptance of terms that are incompatible with
the welfare and best interests of the land.
Reservations reported to the senate have al
ready been discussed, as have the issues con
tained in the Shantung amendment and that
looking to establishment 6f a voting parity be
tween the United States and the British em
pire. These are not captiously conceived. They
involve questions of principle of deep concern
to the whole country, and as they are adjusted
will affect the future of the United States.
A question of judgment has arisen between
the president, whose vision is international and
embraces the world, and the senate, whose
outlook rests on a foreground of American in
terests, the care for home institutions, and the
preservation of our liberties first. A choice be
tween the two must be made.
John Mitchell, Labor Leader.
A mighty man has fallen in the ranks of or
ganized labor, and a worthy and patriotic citi
zen has finished his work. John Mitchell is
dead. Only those who have been closely as
sociated with the industrial and sociological
movements, which run parallel, for the last
fifteen years, understand or appreciate the great
influence, the sterling qualities and loveable
characteristics of this man. v
Son of a soldier who fought in the union
army, he was an intense American; the child
of penury, he tasted all the bitterness of pov
erty, his father having died and left a widow
with small children to provide for by her own
efforts. The darkness of the coal mine sur
rounded his boyhood years, but his mind
broadened and he came to manhood with vision
strong and clear. In 1902 he came into na
tional prominence as head of the United "Mine
Workers of America during the great anthracite
coal miners' strike. It was then his remarkable
ability and capacity for leadership was proved.
He was also found to be incorruptible, a fact
admitted by' foe as well as asserted by friend.
In the more or less celebrated "contempt
case," set in motion by Judge Wright of the
District of Columbia, Mitchell came in for gen
eral publicity along with Gompers and Morri
son. His public career was then well launched,
and as a member of the National Civic Federa
tion, a chairman of one of its departments, and
as commissioner or chairman of many of New
York's state social activities, he has been a
busy man for the last ten years. How much
of good he accomplished none can tell, but
those who came into contact know how com
pletely he was devoted to high ideals. "Johnna-da-Mitch"
will be sorely missed and sincerely
mourned by those who knew him well.
From the New York Times,
More than fifty years ago Frederick Harri
son, a firm and wise friend of fade unions, was
. a v-i T J ft. '
a member ot tne Koyai . i raaes union commiS'
sion. He has seen them grow and expand un
til they have not only obtained for themselves
advantages then undreamed ot, out, uncier sei
fish and radical leadership, they have become
in some respects a. parasite upon and a danger
to the British community. At 88 this old and
steady friend of the just demands of labor, this
clear, impartial thinker in so many neias, cam
UDon the labor leaders to make iheir "fellow
workers understand how close to ruin and
starvation our people stand." Trade unionism,
which for two generations, intelligently con
ducted, won incalculable advantages for itself
and the whole British people, is now threat
ened with a revolution in its own ranks. It
infested with the exotic madness for sovietism
revolution, anarchism. Unless its leaders can
make the hotheads obey, unless its members
can be united in a policy of common sense, it
"is lost, and in the breakdown of it ruin and
starvation await millions of our people) at
Great Britain has a debt of $40,000,000,000,
It is getting deeper into debt every day. It
is importing annually $4,000,000,000 more than
it exports; and for most of its imports it is
paying merely paper promises. "The wages
paid enormously exceed the real value of the
work done. Bread, coal, houses, sea and land
transport are all subsidized, as very soon meat
and milk will be subsidized. That is, the pro
ducers of these are getting far more than the
goods are worth.
Great Britain has been paying millions to
keep the price of bread fixed. It is paying mil
lions for higher wages. It is giving doles to
the employed and doles to the unemployed,
many of whom prefer not to work. When the
price of coal was raised six shillings a ton, Mr.
Smillie, head of the Federation of Miners, de
nounced the decision of the cabinet as "an elec
tion dodge." As a matter of fact, it brought
vividly and clearly before the British public
exactly what the policy means of granting sub
sidies derived from taxation of the public to
satisfy the insatiable demands of the trade
unions. Obviously, subsidies must stop some
time. There will be no money left from whioh
they can be borrowed
When the British consumer saw that he had
to pay a bigger price for coal in order that the
miners might get threefold wages, while their
output was steadily diminishing, the fatal re
sults of trade unionism unlimited were im
pressed upon the taxpayers. Mr. Harrison
seeks to impress them upon the trade unions.
He tells them that a large portion of the wages
paid to workmen is simply a gift. They are
paid more than their work is worth out of the
taxes of their tellow-citizens. Labor keeps
getting gifts of money "which its labor does
not earn; it is sucking down the savings of
thrift and piling up debts to lie heavy on our
children." This cannot last long. If much of
the wages of 10,000,000 or 15,0W,000 men or
women is to be paid by the taxpayers, "this
monstrous form of charity will soon end."
There will be no fund left for the gift to come
from. "Great Britain," Mr. Harrison says, "is
paying its workmen and workwomen " a bonus
of $1,000,000,000 more than they really earn."
Besides, the transaction is really one of "paper
credit." If the practice is continued, the state
will be bankrupt, the workmen will starve.
The coal export has been failing. The Brit
ish foreign investments have been transferred
to save exchanges. High wages, the high price
of coal and raw materials make the price of
British manufacture so high that foreigners will
not purchase. Great Britain has got to buy
its food abroad or starve. What is it going
to buy it with, provided it has ships enough to
bring it? And now ships cost so much that
they can't be built. The miners have given a
dangerous and are seeking to give a fatal blow
to the cardinal British industry on which all
others depend. Competitor nations are driving
Great Britain out of its foreign markets, even
out of its home markets. "We cannot go on
working "five days for six hours if foreigners
"work six days for eight hours."
It is a dark and a true picture by the hand
of a friend who has no motive except the good
of the trade unions and his country. Unless
British trade unions are blind to facts, to their
own interest as well as the general interest,
they will go no further on the road to ruin.
Some Unusual Arithmetic
Before Christmas days arrive the people of
the United States will receive in interest on
liberty bonds $458,000,000. They bought the
bonds in a spirit of patriotism and now find
it an investment, as well as a debt which they
must eventually discharge. No usurer receives
the interest or had any part in fixing it. Our
own citizens own the bonds, and now, with an
agreeable feeling, cut the coupons. Many citi
zens bought bonds "until it hurt," often making
sacrifices and exercising unwonted economy.
But fcow well it pays! If those who receive
interest in the months remaining of this year
so elect they will be paid in war savings stamps
instead of cash, an operation by which they ob
tain compound interest. Now here is a pleas
ing and interesting problem tn mathematics.
The debtors are also creditors. The debts are
also investments. Much of the money saved
would not have been saved but for the admir
able responses to the liberty bond calls. In

when the balance of trade was so
enormously in favor of the United

in a teapot and make mountains out

The world will gradually get back
to a point where it will begin to
think straight once more. There
are many years of prosperity for
us if we don't go to extremes.
However, the political agitator can
do a vast amount of harm if taken
We want constructive suggestion

We want an appeal to reason

Cardinal Mercier's Mission.
Cardinal Mercier says he has come to thank
Americans for their help and loving sympathy
extended to Belgium while the war was on,
He need give himself no concern on that-point;
a special visit was not called for. Americans
have had their reward in the knowledge that
they were able to feed and clothe the needy
of his land and to relieve as far as possible the
distress wrought upon it by a merciless foe.
We are interested in the cardinal himself,
though. The primate of a great church who
had the courage to defy the men of. violence, J
who lifted his voice not as a cardinal but as a
citizen of an unjustly invaded and cruelly rav
aged country, rousing the fire of patriotic
devotion, urging his people to resist the
wrong even to death, is welcome amongst us
because of his courage, his sincerity and his un
selfishness. Among all the figures of the war
none stands in better light than Cardinal Mer

come in America.
