Anarchists and Government
As the happy time comes when a few of the
anarchists, who for many years have defied the
laws as well as the decencies of American life
while availing themselves of every quibble and
privilege of the law and the customs of the
country, are about to be deported, it would not
be a bad idea if President Wilson should live
up to his own philosophy and "open the doors"
to all the facts about the Department of La
bor's relationship to the reds who have found
Ellis Islfcid. such a haven of refuge and a
heaven of enlarged opportunities for mischief.
The president is convinced that "government
doors should be thrown open and kept open
henceforth," since "free government must live
by understanding." And he sees a new day
dawning when 'only those governments that
have no secrets from their people" will endure.
But while this sounds well, in the face of it all
the scandal of the immigration commissioner
ship at New York, which has been accentuated
by the refusal of the Department of Labor
to tell congress why the government has been
so tender to anarchists ordered ' deported, it
looks very much as if government by secrecy
was viewed as a privileged matter so tar as the
present administration gees, and that the coun
try will never really get the truth about a
partnership with extremists which has had
many discreditable chapters. Philadelphia

AMERICA'S SUGAR BOWL. .
For the first time in his course as president
of the United States, Mr. Wilson has declined
to exercise extraordinary powers conferred upon
him by congress. He will not, according to hit
announcement, undertake to control the price of
sugar, because it appears that the supply in sight
ii ample for American needs, "even on the pres
ent unnecessarily large basis of consumption."
Under possible contingencies, the power of con
trol may be exercised, but for the present the
sale of sugar will be in the , hands of those who
produce and refine it.
The raid on the American sugar bowl began
some months ago, and hat been persistent and an
noying ever since. Profiteering has been open, in
spite of the ostentatious arrest and prosecution
of a too-greedy dealer here and there through
out the country. For weeks in Omhaa the sup
ply has been short and the price high, while in
adjacent towns plenty of sugar has been avail
able - and at a moderate rate. For example,
within a fortnight Denver grocers were selling
the best grade of refined sugar at 12 cents per
pound, and not limiting a customer, while in
Omaha consumers paid 22 and 23 ents a pound
for unrefined, and Ave re able to get but a pound
at a time, and that from their regular dealer.
Supply and demand may be responsible for
such a situation. ,'It was admitted by certain
brokers during . a hearing: in Omaha a few
months ago that large shipments of sugar had
been diverted from this market that a better
price might be obtained elsewhere. All through
the proceedings a mystery has prevailed that is
not cleared up by the perfunctory examinations
made by the federal officers here.
Figures supplied bjr Mr. Wilson have been
exhibited before. They indicate a large quantity
of sugar available for American consumption.
It is not a question, though, of how much sugar
is used in the homes of the land, but how much
tribute is to be exacted from' thoSe homes by
the sugar planters and refiners. The American
sugar bowl may not be a "paramount," but it"
is a live issue just now.
All Wrong, Aristotle
Pershing and' the Four Stars.
A local paper, describing General Pershing's
appearance at the Omaha meeting on Saturday,
emphasizes the fact that the only decorations on
his uniform were the red, white and blue rib
bon of the Congressional Medal and the four
Stars. And what greater honor could he have?
Among all (the decorations awarded him by for
eign governments, and he has them all, there is
none that equals in significance the simple Con
gressional Medal. Foreign orders have their
origin in the fancy of moriarchs; they represent
fundamentally the favor of a ruler. Some, of
this may not attach to the war crosses given by
France and England, yet at the base they are all
the same. The Congressional Medal is a gift
from a free and independent people, quick
enough to pay honor to a popular hero and lav
ish in its recognition of valor, but giving the
high place only, to thoseawho deserve that dis
tinction by the intrinsic merit of service. And
very few American soldiers have been privileged
to wear the four stars on their shoulder, -emblematic
of supreme command under the presi
dent. It is little wonder that a modest, sincere
gentleman like John J. Pershing should appear
with only the insignia of his rank, which army
regulations require him to wear, and the one
great emblem of a mighty people's gratitude and
pride in a noble soldier. He unquestionably ap
preciates the honors conferred on him by for
eign governments, but he also knows their value
in relation to the dignity of his American dis
Fixing Railroad Rates.
Agreement by the conferees on the pro
vision i of the coming railroad law which puts
supreme control of rates in the hands of the
Interstate Commerce commission will tend
to establish confidence in the law. If it
eventually does away with the interference of
state boards or commissions with the Business
of inland commerce, a boon will be conferred
on the nation at large. However sound may
be the theory that undertakes to set a' definite
division between the federal and state super
vision of transportation rates, its benefits are
more than offset by the resultant confusion.
Experience has taught that the centralized
authority is far more apt to stabilize commerce,
not only between but within states. What ia
most needed is a simplification of the methods
of fixing and applying rates.- When the Inter
state Comme'rce commission can revise its prac
tice, and adopt a system that may be more gen
erally applied, instead of handling each case as
a unit, and thereby complicating the whole fab
ric of rates, the business of hauling goods and
passengers will be placed on a much more sat
isfactory basis than it has ever been. A little
well-directed effort towards this end will do
much to reconcile the shippers to the absence
of state regulation.
Cutting Out the "Cuss Words."
Encouraged, perhaps,,' by the experience of
Josephus Daniels in the matter of reforming
naval terminology, the moguls of the Pennsyl
vania are now engaged in a crusade against
profanity on part of their employes. The first
move is directed at the language brakemen em
ploy, and these are not only adjured but re
quired to limit their objurgatory armament to
such innocuous expletives as "gosh," or "darn,"
"fudge," and when especially exasperated, they
may be permitted to say "shucks."
If the "Pennsy" does succeed in putting it
over, it will have the "road of anthracite" beaten
many parasangs in the direction of novel ad
vertising.' A practice as old as humanity is not
likely to be seriously disturbed by a single ex
ecutive order, even if it does tome from the
head of as big a corporation as the "P. R. R."
No one who has ever lingered long around a
switch shanty or yard telegraph office can fail
to have noted and consequently have been im
pressed by the quality of profanity used. All,
the way down the line the art of "cussing" is
practiced, improving as it descends, until the
brakeman has established himself supreme in
the matter of unique, sulphurous conversation.
The occasional exchange of compliments be
tween the engineer and conductor, or either of
them and the yardmaster is a treat to a student
of expression, the corrosive qualify of such ver
bal erosives being beyond the . comprehension
of any not of the elect .But these are state
events, and have little m common, with the
parade the brakeman makes of his astonishing
vocabulary. . 1
When the man who wrote the order for the
suppression of thi time-honored habit of loose,
and variegated "cussing" gets his reports on the
success of his crusade, a summary will interest
a 'curious, public,
From the Baltimore American.
When the eminent Aristotle evolved Ms
theory of a common sense a aense held by
every one in common a sense that would bring
the other senses into accord, a clearing-house
for the reports that come in through hearing,
seeing ana the rest; he made what was a won
derful contribution to the sasres and the ages
He made clear that there is something in the
human system by which there can be such a
thing as understanding. At least so he thought,
and so have philosophers thought ever since.
If the great Greek were living today he
would hear the dirge sound from senate to sanc
tum, from shop to ship; all wrong, Aristotle,
there is no longer any common sense. Mad
ness, stark and silly bughouseism are rampant
throughout the world of mankind. Dabblers in
common-sense through Jhe ages making believe
that human beings are rational, when they do
not have even certification to theirown exist
ence upon which to base a scheme of ration
ality, coined the word consensus. By this was
meant h&t it was possible for common-sense
to be manifested even among groups of beings,
in matters considered in common. Again,
Aristotle, is found to be all wrong. Peace con
ference," bojsheviki head-hunter assemblages,
Holv Rollers, orohibitionists. labor unions and
ecclesiastical bodies, along with womeVs suf
frage conventions and the senate group, all
illustrate .the fallacy of believing any longer in
a consensus of opinion. In the absence of a
common sense among the other senses, how
can there be 'any longer faith in a consensus
of views among groups of humans, all suffering
from dementia, the universal malady of man
kind? Art literature and industry all reveal
the lack of the quantum in common. And now
comes the Swiss discoverer Einstein, who says
that Copernicus and Gallileo and Newton, who
appeared to have had a consensus of scientific
views that enabled them to create a scheme
of the universe, were all wrong. All is wrong,
and the upsetting of all things mundane is re
flected in the total upsettinar of all the theories
of the universe upon which all the facts, acts
and utterances of human beings are based.
Are the astral body, the fourth dimension
and the sixth sense to give the laugh to the
common-sense of man, to the consensus of
views ,of groups of men and of the race, and to
the conclusions of scientists? Once again, let
it be exclaimed with a sigh, Aristotle, you are
Einstein knocks a streak of licrht crooked.
Old-fashioned winter is no more. Europe's map
is writ in water. Bolshevism is the bogy of the
property-holder. We just escaped the end of
the world the other day. It must be at hand.
Is proof needed that we are spinning down the
toboggan slide of sdegeneracy? None, surely,
beyond the newspaper headline, "Eighteen
Tammany Men Held Up by Bandits." After
Eighteen members of the Eugene R. Duffy
association were playing good old Tammany
games at the favorite Tammany hour of 1:30
a. m. when three armed men entered with
felonious intent. Before they could say "Hands
up!" they were seized,- frisked of guns and
money and flung downstairs? As the shatter
of glass signalled their impact with the street
door the sergeant at arms? reseated, was suavely
inquiring, "Whose deal?"
No, gentle reader! That is. not what hap
pened! It is what should have happened. It is
what would have , happened in the dear dead
days that are no more. What did happen was
that the 18 Tammany men or so described
meekly stood by the wall with hands upraised
while the uninvited guests gathered in $2,000 in
cash' and all their jewelry.
It is the end! Tammany can stand defeat;
has thriven on it a hundred tumultuous
years. ' It can stand reforms. It can stand im
putations of respectability. It can survive deals
with Hearst It has many fapes, phases, colors,
moods. It is adaptable, fluid, sinuous, instinct
with life force. But this it cannot stand. When
three bandits hokl up 18 Tammany men in their
own home, "Ichabod" is written. Now the pall
