One of the objectives put forth for the open
hop movement is the elimination of undue
pressure by organized labor upon the conduct
of industry. A fine .balance of justice between
capital and labor would be established in which
dictation from either side as to whether em
ployes hould be union or non-union would dis
appear together with the boycott and picketing.
It comes as a shock, therefore, to 'find that
ugene G. Grace, president of the Bethlehem
- Steel company and advocate of the open shop,
has resorted to the same domineering practices
of which he accuses organized labor.
In New York City 4a joint legislative com
mittee has been investigating causes of the flrac-
' tical shutdown of building. In following the
trail of unfair restraint of industry the, began'
with the Brindell building trades onions, going
thence to combinations of material dealers and
contractors, and coming now to the question of
structural steel. A building contractor who cm
ployed; only union men charged that his busi
ness was being injured by the, refusal of the
Bethlehem company to sell him fabricated steel
unless he ran an open shop. Mr. Grace, called
to the stand, frankly stated tKat he believed it
was proper "to protect the open shop principle,"
and declared his refusal to sell to contractors
employing only onion men would not be changed
even if building operations in New York had to
be shut down. "
All that has been charged against the closed
shop will now be laid also at the door of those
advocating the open shop plan. If this is Mr.
Grace's Idea of protecting the open shop princi
ple, it must be made plain that his view is not
that of the' whole group of employers who are
back of the movement. If the boycott is bad
when used by one side, U is equally wrong when
osed by the other. Under the plea of fair play,
there Is much that may be urged for the open
hop principle, but to attempt to further the end
by such un-American, domineering means as that
adopted by Mr. Grace, in which the rights of
the public to the uninterrupted process of build
ing erection is menaced, is not the way to spread
the idea of better industrial relations.
Need the Farm' Land Bank.
The farmer got something more than pats on
the back from M. L. Corey, general attorney
oT the Federal Land bank, speaking at tire Ne
braska Farmers' congress Jiere. A definite pro
gram which included gradual liquidation of
farm products, revival of the Allen Root plan
for a system by which producers could store
crops under bond .and borrow enough money
on warehouse receipts to tneet their obligation,
and the restoration of .the land bank system
tijere laid before the - assemblage.
Convention after convention of agricultural
organizations has been held in the last few
months, but the lack of unanimity is the most
striking feature." Mr. Corey's suggestion that
part of each debt due the country hanks be
settled by selling a portion of the grain now,
and other parts month' by month may not be
popular, since the conviction is rather general
that speculators would take advantage of this
assurance of continued movement to market
and force prices lower.
The fact is well established that exports have
'' been continuing at a good rate and that there
is no big surplus of wheat in the world, or
In America. Mr. Corey's assertion that the
farmer is being called upon to bear more than
his burdetl t the cost of deflation is also gen
erally .conceded. The National City bank de
clares that the principal condition necessary to
a revival of prosperity is that the prices of what
the farming population wants to buy come into
balance with the prices of what it has to sell.
This touches the point squarely.
More immediate aid seemSf' possible through
a revival ofhe activities of the Eederal Land
bank. This institution is cow tied up by a suit
In the Supreme court of the United States, in
which a decision has been expected ever since
last October. No way of accelerating the de
cision exists, but much relief undoubtedly could
be provided if through a favorable opinion new
sources of credit- could be opened up to start
the flow of money from farm to village, to city
and back again.
tag is a work to which American men of medi
cine should devote, more attention, says Dr.
Rice. The subject ought to attract some notice,

Visitors to Marion.
No one is able to sock knowledge out of his
thumb, which is a way of saying that it is by
experience and the exchange of experience that
helpful information is to be obtained. Senator
Harding, as a member of the foreign relations
committee of the upper house of congress,
learned much about world affairs, but he real
izes that his knowledge is not complete, and can
be Mtpplemcnted by consultation with tffhers, no
matter what their party or how diverse their
That is the explanation of the succession of
visitors day after day 'at Mr. Harding's home
in Marion. " The conferences deal particularly
with the part America is to play in wofld peace.
Outright opponents of the league of nations are
followed by those who would ratify the cove
nant with reservations, and in their footsteps
come men who were fnclined to favor -unqualified
entrance into the league, and those who
propose substitutes such as an international
supreme court or an extension of the principle
of arbitration. Hughes, Bryan, Root, Hoover
and many other men of high rank in public life
have been invited to contribute their opinioa to
the settlement of this problem. Colonel Harvey
has emerged from the consultation chamber
with an idea that the ultimate solution will be
to give the people of every nation the right to
vote on war and let the rest of the unsettled
questions, including the irritants that Wed
hostility, take care of themselves. No one efse
has committed himself after being called to
Marion, and since the meetings continue, it is
possible that Colonel Harvey is the only one
to have settled the problem, and that Mr. Hard
ing is not yet ready to make a definite proposal.
Nor will any specific plan have to be an
nounced until he takes office. To consider the
matter fully adjusted before it is laid before the
people or the senate would be to repeat the mis
take made by President Wilson. What sugges
tions may come from these nonpartisan ejoun
cils cannot be considered more than tentative
ones offered for the consideration of the public
Mr. Harding's handling of this great issue is
an innovation, contrasting strangely with the
backdoor conferences and the secret conclaves
with party lieutenants that have marked previous
administrations. One of the pledges of the re
publican candidate in the campaign was that he
would seek advice, and in the practical carrying
out of this pledge is a promise of a successful
administration, in which misunderstanding and
unnecessary friction will be reduced to a mini
Medicine in South America.
In South America, especially in the little'
known regions of Colombia and Brazil,' exist
untold opportunities for the young medical, man
of seal and courage, says Dr. A. Hamilton Rice,
scientist and explorer. It is not alone in the
matter of tracing new diseases to their lair, but
of spreading some knowledge of ordinary san
itation and even decency among the people down
there. Speaking at the Harvard School of Medi
cine last week, Dr. Rice discussed conditions at
he discovered them on a trip that included the
upper basin of the Orinoco and the Amazon.
Ignorance of ordinary requirements of cleanli
ness seems to be the thing that was most noticed
among the natives. Even Bogota, a capital city
with 100,000 inhabitants, lacks the rudiments of
modern ideas in communal sanitation.' In lesser
communities, in the rural districts and along
the rivers, the situation gets worse. T,o combat

Western Union and Uncle Sam.
An able and witty French statesman once re
marked of the Bourbon family, "They learn
nothing, and they forget nothing This might
apply to some of the operating heads of great in
dustries in the Untied States; especially to the
president of the Western Union Telegraph com-.
pany in his opposition to the government, air.
Carkon-says his company will connect up its
Barbadoes cable with a landing in Cuba and so
reach the United, States despite President Wilson
or any other governmenrauthority or agent. His
attitude is not one that will strongly appeal to
the American people.
The action of the president and the secre
taries of war and navy does not turn on the
rivalry between the Western Union and its com
petitors. In that the public docs have some con
cern. At present the Western Union declines
to accept business j(o be transmitted overseas by
wireless; through this method it perhaps ham
pers the operation of the Marconi companies to
a considerable extent, but it is going over old
ground. The Bell telephone people long go
traversed the course, and came out at the losing
end. It was found necessary to pass laws and
otherwise to proceed to require the Bell
to handle business originating on rival lines, but
actual physical connection was eventually com
pelled. In.Omaha a few years ago when several
street railway companies were competing a
court ordered them to use the viaducts in com
mon. In many other ways the public" rights have
been similarly protected, and it is not too much
to expect that in good time the Western Union
will be forced to do what all others have done
handle its share of the business in connection
with competitors.
1 A greater issue Is involved. Experience dur
ing the war showed that Great Britain had abso
lute contral of all facilities for transmitting in
telligence or holding communication throughout
the world. Through the order in council, emitted
early in 1915, a constrictive blockade was es
tablished, and not a letter, telegram or cable
gram passed between neutrals not actually con-
tiguous but proceeded by British consent. This is
what the president has in mind; he wants to
adjust matters so that in event of any great
world crisis the United States will not be under
the duress it had to endure from the spring of
191 S for two years until we entered the war as
a belligerent.
The expedient Mr. Carlton proposes to adopt,
that of landing one end of his company's Barbv
dots cable in Cuba, may serve for the moment,
but it may be accepted as certain that our
government will not admit that act as a final
defeat and the closing of tV rase.

Many are Interested in the pro
gress of what has all the indica
tions of being a successful fight
against leprosy, not because they
have leproex, or expect to, have it
or expect to nave it develop In any
one in' whom they are interested,
but because it is a long time enemy
of mankind, one with conquests and
terrors, often recorded in' sacred
and profane history.
While Dr.- McEwen has shown
that much ot the so-called leprosy
told about in the Bible was not
leprosy, but other kinds of disease,
there is good reason for believing
that there,-was genuine leprosy in
that Jlme and that it was more se
vere than ia the leprosy of today.
- A few years ago the Norwegians
undertook to control the leprosy in
their laad. They did so by building
five great institutions, gathering up
all the lepers from every part of
Norway and holding them for life
in these homes. By the time the
world war had developed the num
ber of lepers had , decreased so
greatly that only three of these in
stitutions were used as leper colo
nies and the others had been turned
into tuberculosis hospitals.
For a number ot years in the
Louisiana leper colony Dr. I. Dyer
had been curing leprosy or getting
results which seemed to be cures.
In spite of all this gain, the most
promising demonstration is that
which has been made by Dr. J. T.
McDonald In Kalihi hospital, Hono

leprosy since December, 1918. These
cases are kept under observation

Cod liver oil ia an edible fat hav

a cure for rickets in children. The
