Where Anarchy Really Is Safe.
"And never a Uw of God nor man run
north of S3,', tang Kipling, but be. didn't mean
that anarchy prevailed. What he did have in
mind ia the fact that up in that land at that time,
ai in certain parts of the "west" in a not far dis
tant day. each man carried the law in himself.
He obeyed it, and perhaps nowhere under the
shining sun r ever in history was justice more
exact or certain than it was there . and then.
Rude, perhaps, and not always accompanied by
the frills and trimmings it has been surrounded
with by civilization, but substantial, in that its
foundation was the square deal, gauged by the
honest, straightforward impulses of men, each
of whom knew that he", too, was responsible and
it might be his turn next. ' ,
Which leads up to the group of "theoretical
anarchists" who-have attracted attention by set
ting up a "colony" wherein they "defy" the laws
ol God and man, ostentatiously parading their
attitude and annoying the neighbors by their un
seemly conduct. It will be noted that this
precious assemblage has selected a spot( where
the machinery for enforcement of man-made law
has been brought to its highest perfection,' and
where the law tf God has been observed for cen
turies. This choice rested on the primal instinct
of seifpreservation. Not one of that crew but
knows and trusts in his knowledge that if an
other imposes on hira he may immediately in
voke the law and secure redress. And not one of
them but would do it.
In any event, however, the law of God will
not be modified nor in the least turned aside,
just because this motley crew of wormy-brained
zealots have pretended to ignore it. And the
first one of them who is guilty of a serious in
fraction of the statutes of New Jersey' will find
himself present In 'court as a prisoner. The law
will not cease to operate just because this or
that individual says he is above it or has no in
tention' of paying any attention to it. " '.
' Finally," the best place. to set up an experi
ment in Applied anarchy is, somewhere near a
large citjithat has an efficient police force. The
group in question has chosen wisely, for its
safety., is assured so long as it doesn't get too
ambitious.. -Then, when the novelty of the affair
has worn off, and the sustenance of the outfit de
pends on;omebody going td work, the cry for
help will go up, just as it has from ' Russia,
where, the laws of God and man were set aside,'
anf another "brutal" ' exhibition of capitalistic
tyranny will be noted when the police disperse
the "theoretical anarchists." ; A

and mine guards are in constant conflicf, and
threats of a general engagement have been made.
These are events chronicled in the current
news and can not but be discouraging to those
who hoped for an era of world peace after the
great war. If Americans are unable to adjust
their, difficulties between themselves without re
sort to arms, how much is. to be expected be

Simultaneously with these " wild outbreaks
, there is found an extensive and profound desire
for universal peace. Its influence is being felt by
those in control of many governments, and its
aim is truly noble. The prevalence of disturbed
areas all over the globe, however, must be recog
nized as exhibiting the difficulties which stand in
the way. . .

' Congress ought to receive favorably the
recommendation of the Postoffice department

; tivity. It does not injure or conflict with the
profits of privately owned banking institutions,
but rather, taps" new sources of capital, encour
ages the babit of thrift, and reaches those who
otherwise would hoard their money in a mattress,
an old sock or other hiding places and demon
. strates to them -that it is better to put their funds
to work at interest than merely to hold it out of

An Indictment of the Nation.
From the office of the secretary of labor
comes an analysis of the building operations car
rird on in 19J0 in the United States that mut
atonih even the thoughtless. At time when
the housing situation was most scute, the nation
built more garages than i did dwellings, and
more moving picture theaters than churches and
hospitals, white the sum spent iu school con
itruction was little more than half that expended
on garages. Here Is what Secretary Davis says:
I am informed by Ethelbert Stewart, com
missioner of labor statistics, that in the 196
cities with over 3S,(X)0 population from which
returns were received, $1,204,490,764 was ex
prnded in building construction for the year
The population of these 196 cities way 34,
572.904, or 32.7 per cent of the total population
of the United States. There were 68.6J7 one
family houses constructed, at a cost of $296,
124.663, or 24.6 per cent of the total amount of
money spent in all kinds of building. There
were only 5,402 two-family houses built; but
while in all the one and two-family houses
combined there were but 81,103 families pro
vided for, there were 93,121 garages built.
To be sure, an unknown number of families
were provided for in the 1,496 apartment
houses that were built as such and the 239
apartment houses built with stores combined.
Still, making liberal estimates for these, auto
mobiles fared better than families.
There were 426 moving picture and other
amusement places built in these cities during
the year at a cost of $40,522,240, or consider
ably more than the cost of churches and hos
pitals, and while these cities constructed 547
schoolhouses, their cost, $50,023,140, was but
little more than half 'the1 money spent on gar
But one conclusion is possible from this, that
as a nation we put in one precious year in friv
olous pursuit of amusement and pleasure, to the
neglect of things we sorely needed. -We totfk
our fun when we should hve been at work. Now
we are paying for it. However, it is not too
late, and if another year shows even as much
money spent on homes as on garages the fact
will be accepted as a good omen. .
Conference on Unemployment. '.:
Industrial conditions in the United States are
not improving as rapidly as might be wished.
While optimistic predictions are freely indulged,
and those who ought to know express the opin
ion that change for the better is at hand, the fact
remains that at the end of the summer sees more
idleness than the country has endured since 1914.
This situation has moved the president to de
termine on a conference, at which the leaders of
groups concerned will be invited for an exchange
of views to the end that a way may be found to
obviate unnecessary suffering during the coming
winter. Secretary Hoover of the Department of
Commerce is charged with making arrangements
for the gathering. ' ' j
The unescapable fact is that liquidation has
gone forward so unevenly that no balance exists,
However there are signs which justify the belief
that the peaks which now persist will be brought
much nearer the general plane of prices, and so
permit the restoration of trade parity' that was
all but destroyed in the speculative period that
followed the war. With leaders working to
bring about such a condition, the prospect 'for"
the success of the conference the president has in
.jnind is bright. ,J

Trafficways ' for Omaha. .
Omaha is blessed with wide streets in its
business section and is the envy of its sister
cities on that account In the possession of traf
ficways, leading from one section to another,
however, it is lacking. The proposed widening
of .Twenty-fourth street is a move in the direc
tion of meeting this need, which each year, with
the development of business and the extension
of the use of motor trucks and cars, will be
come more pressing. '
'. These arteries of traffic must not only be
wide and solidly paved, but they should also
have easy: grades. Public opinion considers the
improvement of Dodge street and St Marys well
worth while, and there yet remains much, mbre
to be done. .v .: . ': , JUv '

(Louis Bcrnhelmer in the New York World)
. Behind the scenes at the Hippodrome there
it a room of about 20x10 feet dimension. In one
corner is sn electrically driven ' lathe. On the
walls are hung uncompleted contrivances of
wood, ami on benches ami tables there are other
skeleton forms. In ajl. the room most rewm
blet a section of factory of gigantic wooden
watches, as big as cart wheels.
And here, throuuh all the hot summer days,
works Fred Ccrwey, a tall, dark-eyed man of 42,
musical clown, preparing his tricks lor tne win
"And the worot part about being a niuiical
clown," Corwry said, as he hugged his knees
with restless, long-lingered hands, "it that there
is no what do you call it copyright law for
clowns, like there it for anything else, like books,
, "People will steal your jokes, your tricks, and
use them the day after you bring them out It
is different when it conies to an acrobat. To
steal one of hit acts needs months of practice.
It is not real stealing becase the man has to go
through the same physical effort as the one who
invented it and the same danger.
"But when it conies to a joke or a trick,
anything that can be copied without work, just
lifted and used somewhere else, there you are
stealing a man's brain, and without any work
on your part. It has got so that I have had to
make it too complicated for anyone to cheat
"Most of my tricks are so difficult now that it
is impossible to steal them. It is the 'how,' of
doing my acts, not the 'what,' that I pay atten
tion to. So, you sec, I protect myself that way.
If anyone wants to copy me they will have to
go through months of practice, sometimes a
year or more, before they do what I do.
"When I first came to this country, 15 years
ago I tell you this to show you how I have to
work on a single one of my tricks I had some
thing nobody could imitate. It was a musical in
strument like a piano, with keys the size of
bricks. I hung myself up by the collar on a
hook above the keyboard so I could just touch
the keys with my feet. Now, when you are
hung up by the neck you can't feel anything in
"It took me a year and a half to learn how
to play those keys. Now I am back at the Hippo
drome a year. VVhen I first returned I. thought
I would use that trick again. I found out that
I couldn't do it any more, and it might take me
a year to rclearn, so I gave it up.
"The clown must first be an artist. Without
the temperament, he will never amount to any
thing. I have seen men with good acts succeed
in one part of the world and fail in another.
He must know his audience immediately. Here
is an example. The first time I came here from
England my first matinee performance was a
frost. How well I remember that I In the eve
ning I was a success, and the stage manager said
to me: 'Why didn't you give that show this
aftcrnpon?' Now it was the same show, but I
had changed it to suit the audience. But he
didn't tee it."
"You'v traveled all over, I suppose?"
"Almost all over the world. I have been in
Africa, India, Australia, England, France, Ger
many, Italy. Always, alone, -my trunks full of
machinery to make my new tricks with. One
circuit. I was on included Africa, India and Aus
tralia, a regular English circuit. In Capetown
and Johannesburg they have big houses like the
movie houses here.
"What I was telling you before about under
standing your audiences is important, for this
reason: They are different in each country. You
take the' German audience. It is very heavy,
likes slow stuff. The English audience conies
next. It will laugh, but only along certain lines,
at certain things. Outside of those it is not safe
to go.' '. :. ' . ' -
f "But the American audiences will laugh at
anything; they are like children: they laugh so
heartily, and they enjoy themselves. I have-1
played in Paris often. The French are entirely
different; they like something piquant. - .
"Now,, for instance, if I had. a rose in my
buttonhole" suddenly Corwey' was the mime;
Iris noble face was transformed into the simper
ing mask of. a dandy -"and I took that rose and
pinned it on the corsage of a lady, and if 1 took
that chance to caress her with my hand"; he
made the movement of transferring the flower to
the bosom of the admired lady "like that, the
American audience would not like it. But the
French would; something piquant is what they
want. The .Italians are different -again; pan
tomime is popular with them. Itally is really
the source of pantomime.:
"But America, is the home of humor. It. is
entirely different from Europe.- Take this, for
instance. Suppose you have a man smoking a
cigaret. He puts the wrong end of it in his
mouth. In Germany they would want hint to
make all kinds of capers. - : ; '
. "In America he would make a little twist of
his mouth like this" he contorted his mouth
dryly "and throw the cigaret away, so nobody
would notice that he had burned himself. Do
you see the difference? v
"In Germany we call your way 'dry' humor;'
the European is quite distinct from it."
The t'Home Brew" Peril.
. There is no question in congress of legaliz
ing home brew. It will and should remain ille
gal. ' Anyone openly making it or boasting of
making it will be liable to fine or jail. But the
house, led by Mr. Volstead, acts wisely in re
fusing to" make the prohibition enforcement
agents a set of house raiders. In large part it
simply recognizes an accepted state of affairs.
Everyone knows that even where the local po
lice whole-heartedly co-operate in enforcement
there has been little effort to' stop home brew
ing fof home consumption. The enforcement
of the ISth amendment should be kept as simple
as possible, especially at first To stop all illegal
importations, to prevent the manufacture of
stills, to shut up all bootlegged establishments,
to end the transportation and sate of intoxicants
these are 'the main objects.
, Some . congressmen have undoubtedly rea
soned also jthat home' brew has been taken too
seriously. , Opponents of prohibition tried to
Tnake men believe that every cellar would have
its outfit and that abolition of the groggcrics
would mean wholesale self-poisoning. There has
been much less home brewing than they or the
cartoonists suggest: Many men have found it
interesting to make home brew once. After
spending large sums for materials, after mak
ing the house smell like a yeast factory, after
breaking pottery and spoiling clothes, after ei.d
less labor, they decanted a naRseous liquor. If
their zeal persisted, they found their wives tak
ing the role of Carrie Nations. Congress and
the enforcement agents will do well to concen
trate upon the really important objects of pro

Theoretically the automatic heat

is not always true, Asasming that
the temperature always is accurately

some a little above .98.5. Peoole
