Mr. Wilson expresses regret at his inability
to visit the capilol to deliver his message in
person. It might have cheered him to have
. looked into the Honest, toil-worn faces of the
ADVICE FROM THE PRESIDENT.
Again Mr. Wilson has addressed the con
gress, 'offering advice and suggestions as to
the state of the union and with reference to
what he conceives to be a prudent policy for the
Disappointment is due those who had ex
pected specific and definite recommendations
as' to how certain vexatious conditions are to
be met. The president confines himself to gen
eralities in his treatment of industrial and po
litical problems, expressing views from which
no dissent is taken, but giving no counsel, other
than to be patient, as to how to remedy the
critical situation. Referring' to the causes of
unrest as superficial and not deep-seated,
ascribing the turmoil to the presence of Eu
ropean agitators, and asking for a continuation
of the ineffective means already in the gov
ernment's hands for controlling the social life
of the country, he places final blame for all the
trouble on "failure on the part of our govern
ment to arrive speedily at a just and permanent
peace, permitting return to normal conditions.?
This presumably refers to the defeat of the
peace treaty by the senate. )
His further reference to the relations be
tween..this country and Europe brings up his
free trade proclivities. In order that Europeans
may, buy our goods and pay what they owe us.
we must buy from them. This appears funda
mental, .but it does not explain why we should
open our home markets to foreign competition
on equal terms with our own manufacturers.
Why we should buy abroad those things we
can make at home is not clear to the average
citizen, however comprehensible the plan may
be to the "international" mind. Americans may
far better submit to deferred payment of the
European debt than to surrender the richest
market in all the world. ,
Treatment of the labor and returned soldier
questions is the same vague and inconclusive
style that marked his messages of last summer.
The Lane plan for employing soldiers in rec
lamation vof waste lands in which they may
later have homes to be purchased from the
government is also commended. Labor's in
violable right to strike is again set forth, in
dicating the attitude of the administration to
wards the anti-strike feature of the Cummins
bill. Repression of disorder to be ac
complished by removal of the causes for dis
content is strongly urged, but the form of cure
proposed is only that which has so' far pro
duced no sign of improvement.
Two points of which the president lays great
stress will commend themselves to all. These
are economy in expenditures, and reduction of
taxation. The adoption of a budget system for
control of appropriations is recommended. As
this already is under ,way in the house, with
very good prospects of passage, the relief is
looked for. Republicans long have favored the
movement, which was nearly brought to ef
fective application by Mr. Wilson's predecessor,
but quickly abandoned when the democrats
came into power. Tw years ago a solemn
pledge was made by the democratic house that
a single committee should handle all appropria
tion bills, but this was completely forgotten
when actual work of spending money began,
and there ensued a riot of extravagance from
which the country wi,ll suffer for many a year
to tome., .
Mr. Wilson promises to later discuss the
railroad question, as well as the peaae treaty.
In the meantime the house has passed the Esch
bill, which is tnow up' to the senate in connec
tion with the Cummins bill, the Unfinished
business before that body. Recommendations
from the White House; to be of service must
soon be made. i
' In reading the message one must keep in
mind1 that it coms from a sick man, who has
been prevented by illness from giving that close
personal attention to derails that has charac
terized the course of the president. He is
also Writing to a congress that has already over
ridden two of his, vetoes, and may not be dis
posed to accept definite instructions from him.
Even with this allowance, the general wish will
be that Mr. Wilson had been more explicit on
certain points he has lightly passed over.
No Divided Authority in the
Whatever may be the difficulties of a Mex
ican settlement, and there are enough of them,
Americans may at least be thankful that the
task now confronting the nation is not com
"plicated with any league entanglements. If a
cague of nations were in operation, and we
.vere a member of it the chances of a right set
;lement in Mexico, and one that would leave
America's stewardship of this hemisphere with
fia clear title, would be immeasurably decreased.
A league settlement of the Mexican situation
would not and could not be an American set
tlement. It would he made upon the basis of
countless influences,' claims and aspirations
other than American. Every nation represented
in the league, or at least those represented in
its council, would have had a hand in it. Japan
is represented in the council. Nobody knows
.'just what Japan's interests in Mexico may be,
but whatever they are it is very safe to say
they are not America's interests. America's
interests its broad, national interests are in
an orderly, peaceful, industrious Mexico with a
settled, legal, republican government, a Mex-
. ico with which we can live upon terms of
neighborliness and trade. That's all we want
.... in Mexico. That's all we expect from an
- American settlement of the problem there.
. ' Project European influences into the Mexi
can case and such a settlement will be impossi
ble. We have -seen a European concert try to
'.settle the Balkan .question and the Adriatic
'.. question, and we have seen the results. It
would be the same in Mexico.
Probably we have been lax in our steward
. ; ship, , but to resign it now into the hands of
my other power or comlination of powers with
; interests opposed to ours, ana which can be ad
vanced only by the defeat of ours, would be to
". turn our. backs upon every principle American
institutions have stood for from the beginning.
The country cannot harbor such a thought.
America's obligations to Mexico must be dis
charged by America, when the time comes, and
by nobody else. Kansas City Star.
Anarchists "Love" America.
On the eve of his departure irom America,
permanently, Alexander Berkman pauses a mo
ment to brood in sorrow over the perversity of
the government that expt'ls him and the pur
l)lindncss of the people to permit it. Anarchists,
he tells us, love America. Verily, they ought
to, for no where on earth have they fared so
well as. here. Berkman says he has practiced
his peculiar beliefs for thirty-two years, spend
ing half of that time in prison. That merely
convinces him that the rest of the world was
wrong. During his intervals o( liberty he has
thrived even as did Solomon's lily, in that he
has neither toiled nor span, and yet 1 has en
joyed the good things of life with that' peculiar
gusto incident to carelessness as to who sup
plied the bed and board he relished. Sap
headed men and silly women have contributed
to upkeep of Berkman and his ilk, and the lazy
loafers have waxed fat and merry at the expense
of dupes who have mistaken resonant phrases
mouthily uttered, the jargon of the cult sonor
ously sounded, for the gospel of true liberty.
No wonder the anarchists love America 1 But
we fear this fondness will be lessened, the cur
rent of their love curdled, so to speak, for the
irresistible trend of public opinion is forcing
the government to bestir itself, and the safety
of bomb throwers and windjammers of the
Berkman type is no longer such as to attract
insurance agent9 eager for good risks.
The passing of Henry Clay Frick brings
back again the story of his quarrel with Andrew
Carnegie, which overshadows the days when he
was "pawky Andy's" alibi man at Homestead.
"Ye'll have to see Henry aboot that," was the
great iron master's way but of anything he was
not anxious to do, and Henry seemed to know
by instinct what his partner wanted.
Joshua rillis Alexander, who has just been
named to succeed Mr. Redfield as secretary
of commerce, is a Missouri democrat of many
years standing. He is also a lawyer, but has
not worked at it for a long time. This ought
to qualify him to look after the big business in
terests of the United States.
The Chamber of Commerce asks all citizens
to aid in every possible way in the conservation
of coal. No need to enjoin this on the home
owners, for the price of fuel as well as
is scarcity is an inducement as well as an in-
4 centive to economy in its use.
Repressing a Jamboree
' . . From Harvey's Weekly.
It may be doubted whether in the several
years of .its activity the federal reserve bank
system has rendered any greater service to
the nation than it did in repressing the recent
orgy of speculation-in Wall street. To say
that is' not in the least degree to minimize its
general value; for it might do very great good
without equalling the magnitude of the work
to which we have referred It is indeed a
question whether the nation generally realizes
anything like the full value of that service, for
the reason that it was rendered in time to
avert the catastrophe which alone could have
made the situation fully felt
The fact is that the wild orgy of speculation'
was whirling Wall street to the brink of one
of the most disastrous panics in its history, a
panic which inevitably would have affected
the whole country. When stocks of great cor
porations ar artificially "bulled" up to a specu
lative price of 300 or 400 or more, they cannot
be kept there, and the chances are that when
they fall to a normal figure there will be a vast
disturbance of other prices and a panic in the
money market. , That would afmost certainly
have happened in this case had the speculators
of the street been left to their own devices.
The great service of the federal reserve bank
was performed in intervening in time, with
such an increase of money rates as effectively
stopped further inflation of prices. That forced
the abnormal prices of stocks to come down
with a rush, but provided for their doing so in
circumstances void of evil effect upon the rest
of the market. A lo.t of purely speculative
"paper fortunes" were swept away, but the
nation was saved from a panic which might
have affected disastrously real holdings of legit
imate values. It is of course possible that this
service might have been performed with similar
efficiency by some other agency, though it
seems doubtful if this could have been done
in a manner so free from suspicion of ulterior
motives. What is certain is that the federal
reserve bank did it "with neatness and ' dis
patch"; also, "without fear and without re
proach." . I
It will of course be understood that ' the
tremendous fall in prices of some very impor
tant industrial securities, which was effected in
a few hours, was a fall in speculative prices
and not in real values. The integrity and
solvency and profits of the great concerns
whose stocks were thus manipulated were in no
way involved. Whether their stock was quotqd
at 100 or at 400 made no difference to their
manufacturing operations, their sales of output,
orvtheir profits or legitimate business. While
their workmen and salesmen were engaged in
"business as usual," Wall street was having one
of its occasional jaborees, which happily was
repressed by authoritative intervention in time
and in a way that confined the resultant head
ache and purse-ache to the actual participants
in it, and saved the nation from unmerited dis
aster. 1 '
A Winning Issue
Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler hits the nail on
the head when he puts forward an end to na
tional extravagance as the great issue for 1920.
Like a goQd partisan and a hopeful candidate,
'Dr. Butler somewhat overstresses democratic
responsibility for all the wanton waste of recent
years, for' the republicans have hadjfcontrol of
congress for some time and might have done
something toward checking this prodigality
with the public money had they been so minded.
But let that pass; the democrats are mostly re
sponsible, and if they should try to make a cam
paign on an econ&my platform the discerning
would point to the record and laugh. The re
publicans have the better chance to make the
issue, and it is to be hoped that they will empha
size their good purposes in this respect in the
coming campaign and make so many pledges
that they will have to keep some of them.
The government's lavishness in conducting
its affairs sets a sorry example for the individual
in this era of wild extravagence. It plays its
partn keeping up the cost of living under which
the people stagger. The average citizenis more
interested in the reduction of his taxes, direct
and indirect, than in any" other governmental
policy. Ohio State Journal.

Why Stop at Ten Hours? 1
- Omaha, Dec. 1. To the Editor of
The Beer ' A , few years ago, there
was a great deal of talk about effi
ciency and of doing things In an
efficient manner, but, in la,ter years
the aim for efficiency1 seems to have
have lost sight of and now the great
effort seems to be to do as little work
as possible and in as few hours as
can be, Vith the result of forcing
prices on all productions whether of
field .or of shop to unheard of pro
portions. I can consistently talk on the labor
question for I know personally what
it Is to work from 12 to 20 hours
not only mentally but physically,
and though I am now past 60 years,
of age, I have for more than 30 years
put in from 10 to 20 hours every
one of the days of that time both
physically and mentally and in addi
tion I walk six miles every day of
the year and have done it for the
last 16 years. I
The effort of the so-called labor
leaders for the last few years ha
been to cut down the hours of work
and now some of the more crazy of
,them are agitating for even a four
hour labor day.
The result of the agitation for
shorter hours is seen in the country
today, for the price of every article
of use has arisen hisrher and higher
until lots of the most necessary pro
ductions are beyond the pocket
books of millions of people and will
be that way until the people of the
United States wake up and get back
to old-fashioned Americanism. In
stead of cutting down the hours of
labor, it is my belief that the hours
should be put back tq the 10-hour-a-day
basis until there has been enough
produced in all lines of work in this
country to bring things back to a
normal condition of affairs.
I think the employers and the
employes of this country owe it to
the country to restore the old time
10-hour day until the high cost of
living is brought down by a greater
production thanv can ever be done
while the present eight-hour system
and, less is in existence. I consider
It unpatriotic in the extreme for any
one to want to cut down the hours
of labor whether by the employers
or by the employes until we get
back to the state of things that ex
isted lor so many years before the
world war upset affairs in every part
of the world. The coal operators
should be compelled to allow their
employes more hours of work each
week and they "should also be com
pelled to keep their production of
coal up In the summer as well as
in the winter, so that no such state
of affairs should exist in thfs coun
try again as is the case today.
It locks as if some one was guilty
of treason and they should be tried
tor that offense for allowing the
mines to lie idle for months in face
of a cold winter coming: upon us.
The mine owners should1, be com
pelled to keep their mines running
and the miners should be compelled
to keep at work to produce the coal
That is so badly needed in every part
of the Unitd States today. Someone
has said that serious as the times are
now, they can be settled by work.
Instead of trying to see how few
hours they can put in each day it
should be the aim of every man who
works, whether mentally or physi
cally to see how much he can pro-.
duc-e in 10 hours of the 24 and to
make that production an evidence of
pflicieni-y. Let us get back to the old
time 10-hour day at least for a few
vears. FRANK A. AG NEW.

Hunting Eye Deposits His Money
in the Bank.
By R. 8. ALEXANDER.
"I want the bank to keep this
dollar for me," said Hunting Eye
to the cashier. The farmer who
gave it to him had told him that
was the wisest thing for him to do
"Very good," said the cashier.
' "How much of it will you keep

Indian boy. ' '
"Why, we won't keep any. On
the contrary, we pay you for allow
ing us to keep it for you."
This sovamazed the boy from the
North woods that he was about to
ask for his money back, fearing that
people who were willing to pay him
for keeping his money must intend
to steal it or damage it in some way.
when the cashier continued,
"We'll take your dollar and lend
it to some one who needs money.

money, will be willing to pay for

"Bui how am I to know that the
bank won't lend it to some one
who can't pay or buy property which
is not worth the price?" ,
"When the bank lends money, it
usually requires the person to whom
it lends to have property which
it can take if he does not pay. Then
the government has persons called
bank examiners who inspect the
manner in which the bank has made
its loans and the property it has
bought. . They, also see that the
persons running the bank don't steal
any of the money deposited with
them. Oh, your money will be safe

So the little Indian Boy gave the
cashier his dolIar and, as he went
out into the street, he felt a new
respect and confidence for the great
government which thus protected
the people living under it. i
