It goes without laying that people in hard
timet eat less than during prosperous ones. Only
s step forward is the conclusion that the home
market for the farmer it capable of large ex
tension once employment conditions are solidly
There is matter for serious thinking -in the
statistics of food consumption in the United
States. Consider for a' moment the per capita
consumption of wheat, which amounted to 6.9
bushels in the flush year of 1919 and slumped to
4.6 bushels iu 1920, the year of deflation. "This
decline," observes the report of the congressional
Joint Commission of Agricultural Inquiry, "was
no doubt due to failing purchasing power result'
ing from unemployment and the general depres
sion which cams upon the country in the Utter
half of 1920." . '
It can not be asserted that the American peo
ple are turning from a vegetable to a meat diet,
for the consumption of meat has 'for a long
period been undergoing a decline. ' In 1911 the
average amount of beef eaten was 73.9 pounds;
in 1919, 60 pounds, and in 1920, 56.4 pounds. Al
though consumption of pork shows a slight gatn,
yet it is now less than it was is decade ago.' The
figures show a pgr-capita .consumption of 75
pounds of pork in l911,'of 70.3 pounds in 1919,
and of 71 pounds in 1920. ; ' .'
The packers today, are worrying over the fall
ing off of meat eating, but it appears simply to
be a part of; t general condition: -which affects
almost every agricultural product. '."Cotton con
sumption in 1920," according) this government
report, "was lower than in any year since 1915."
There is, however, a gleam of reassurance in the
finding that it is now rising steadily. Wool con
sumption, however, has declined.
A continuation of this trend means .only one
thing the lowering of the American standard of
living. Our fields are still able to bear bounti
fully; the trouble fs not with'productibn; bur with
consumption. Something is radically wrong. The
home market ''must be built up, whether by im
posing tariffs, stabilizing wage and employment
conditions, increasing the efficiency and lowering
the costs' of distribution, or what other changes
that are advocated, from time to time.
The day when mart is regarded as a consumer
instead of being considered only as a producing
animal will see a recognition of one of the facts '
that underlies civilization and progress. '

The Decay o( Kidnaping.
A generation that shuddered at each unmis
takable approach of s gypsy caravan will ex
perience again tome of those childith thrills at
the story of a young woman who claims to have
been kidnaped end held for years by one of these
roving bands. For the mot part the Romany
folk today wander about the country in touring
cars. They are scarcely distinguishable from or.
diiiary rrost-country tourists and attract little
attention except when found ramped along a
country road with their gsy-hued garments hung
out on the bushes.
Terhaps this young woman wis stolen by
gypsies, although we have the word of the evan
gelist, Gypsy Smith, that this is not their cus
tom and there is much evidence that child stealing
Is not one of their professions. On the other
hand, it may have been that she was attracted
by the free and idle life led by the tribe and
joined them for a holiday in the open, of which
she later tired.
There have been men and women, too, before
her who sickened of the routine and confinement
of civilization. A tragic episode of American
history concerns the long search of two brothers
for their sitter, who had been carried sway by
Indians. Years later, when they found her in s
savage camp among the Squaws, she told them
she was happier where she was and refused to
Kidnaping is a serious crime today, and there
sre few instances in which the perpetrator! do
not come to grief. One remembers a flippant
story by O. Henry which revolves about the
spiriting away of the badly spoiled son of a
wealthy man. The abductors, from their camp
in the hills, dispatched a note demanding ran
som. Then they waited a week, the red-headed
youngster meanwhile making their life miser
able with his pranks and complaints. Finally
the father replied, advising them that it wai their
loss and his gain and closing with the statement
that the little bully was in exactly the proper'
company. In all haste the bad men answered
with the offer of a good round sum if the father
would relieve them of their captive.
Another Block in the Bonus Way.
The McCumber soldier bonus bill has again
been blocked on its way to the general file in
the senate, by jthe objection of John Sharp Wil
liams, democrat, ;of . Mississippi. Its advocates
are-anxious to get it up for consideration with
out delay, but the tariff has right of way and
will hardly be displaced to discuss the bonus.
Its passage at the present Session appears
certain. Then it must go back, to. the
house, for the measure is materially different
from that adopted by the representatives,
the principal change being the elimination of
the reclamation feature of the house bill and the
substitution of a plan for giving credits on land
purchase.''''-'"'' :-'- .'';."
The McCumber plan will eventually cost
$250,000 less than the house bill, bringing
the final total under $4,000,000,000, and it is strung
out over forty-threeyears, rather than to mature
in twenty,' Also,; provisions are made for allow
ing the Treasury to get intOi better shape than
it is, being confronted with the necessity of car
ing for the redemption of $7,000,000,000 of debt
in the coming two years. These features of the
bill are expected Ho-recommend it to some who
otherwise would have opposed a bonus.
Senator McCumber says the matter of a spe
cial tax, if any, to meet requirements of the
proposed law, will bei allowed to stand over to J
such time as Treasury experience may denote
what is necessary to be done. In this he is set
ting aside the suggestion of, the president that
any plan for a bonus should be accompanied by a
scheme for raising the money.
Tariff debate in the senate will be succeeded
in turn by argument on tlie bonus, and a busy
summer is ensured at the capital. .
Case of Chaplin's Mother.
A quality of Charlie Chaplin's character not
shown on the moving picture screen is being
portrayed in news dispatches that tell of his vig
' orous fight to prevent the deportation of his in
valid mother to her former: home in England. 1
The comedian's mother is suffering from men
tal disorders resulting from shell shock sustained
during the "war. when enemy air bombs terrorized
the neighborhood in which she lived. . Her sons
brought her to the United States in order that
the might have the benefit of a change of scene,
excellent medical attention and, what is probably
more healing than anything else in this case, as
sociation with her loved oneiy.' Government reg
ulations forbid the entrance of those mentally
irresponsible, but s special permit' allowed Mrs.
Chaplin to spend one year ia this country. That
year is nearly over. The Chaplin family declares
that the mother's condition is much improved and
that a further stay may result in- her complete
cure. Every possible guaranty is offered that she
will never become s public .charge
Here is a case, it would seem, where govern
ment red tape can well be set aside by a bit of
Iowa's Primary and Mississippi.
We are at a loss to understand why the
democrats should regard the nomination of a re
publican in Iowa as a democratic victory. They
know who will be elected, and they know he will
not be listed among the democrats. Any con
solation they can get out of that .fact they sre
welcome to. Senator "Pat" Harrison of Missis
sippi sees great reason for rejoicing in the out
come of the Iowa vote. This suggests a com
parison between the circumstances surrounding
the choice of Senator Harrison and the nomina
tion of Colonel Brookhart. " . -
"Pat" Harrison was chosen by his fellow
democrats of Mississippi because the senator he
succeeded had incurred the displeasure of the
president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson
sent his 'ukase from the White. House, telling the
democrats of Mississippi' they must not return
James JK. Yardman to the senate. The result is
"Pat" Harrison: Mr. Harrison modestly claims he
received 95 per cent of the votes cast at the elec
tion in 1918, but does not say how 'many were
cast. In 1916 John Sharp Williams received
74,290 votes for United States senator in Missis
sippi No record of the vote of 1918 is available,
but in 1920 for president Cox had 69,277; Har'
ding, 11,576, and Debs, 1,639, a total of 82,492
votes cast for president in Mississippi. Iowa's"
vote in 1920 for president was 862,595, and for
United States senator it was 860,467. ' ' '
Iowa, casting more than ten times the num
ber of votes returned for Mississippi, has only
two more , members of congress. When Pat
Harrison and his political associates will allow
the free, untrammeled use of the ballot in Mis
sissippi as prevails in Iowa, a different story may
be recorded. Until then it might-not be arru'ss'
if the senator from the state where voting is
suppressed should refrain from criticizing the
result in a state where citizens have an oppor
tunity to express their will at the polls. ; .- y
What Taxpayers Want.
An Omaha man, who has heard much about
high taxes and the necessity for their immediate.
reduction, visited the little town of Eagle, Lass
county, the other day. He found there a new
school building, equipped with ample class rooms,
a gymnasium and other modern items, built, at a
cost of $140,000 for the joint use of six consol-'
idated districts. Pupils are conveyed to school
by seven motor busses. He learned that recently
there was talk of reducing taxes. The' school
board decided to do its part and voted to
eliminate the special music teacher, thereby sav
ing $1,500 a year.
. Did the board get a vote of thanks for this
contribution to the taxpayers' salvation? It did
not. Instead, a mass meeting , was called and
patrons insisted that the music teacher must be
restored, to her duties.
The conclusion to be drawn, not merely from
this incident but from others like it, is that Ne
braska folk do not want taxes cut at the expense
of public service. They want cuts made by the
elimination of waste and unproductive extrava
gance, but not by restricting service, to which
they ire accustomed and which they believe to
be worth while. '
Among the gifts made by the Rockefeller
Foundation is one of $3,500,000 for rebuilding
medical institutions in Brussels. Five univer
sities in Central Eurppe received at the same
time $50,000 for apparatus and supplies. This
is an excellent piece of humanitarianism, and one
to which every American may feel he contrib-.
uted. ' . ' . '
It is reported that no exports of grain may
be expected from Russia for five years, which
improves the outlook for American farmers. If

memorial service with his aerial stunts deserves

" Out a Kearney Fred W. Thomas of ths First
National bank, Omaha, told ths bahkert of
group S that he did not believe that they wished
to see a state rural credit system established
but that' unless' something could be done to fi
nance agriculture, rural credits were coming.
Mr. Thomas also said that America was afflicted
with a deluge of legislation.
By the latter etatement Mr. Thomas referred
to the vague Idea that the general government
is financially omnipotent; that by some magic
it can do what the people individually or in
associations cannot do and that It possesses a
bottomless Fortunatut purse in short that
every ill can be cured by a statute. No abler
address upon legislation and the functions of
credit was ever delivered in Nebraska and Mr.
Thomas waa right In his contentions.
There -are many projecta which should re
ceive government aid, auch for instance aa the
Grext Laket-St Iiawrence Waterway plan; but
in the majority of Instances it is unquestionably
best to permit the people to work out their own
salvation under beneficent lawa. If legislation
continuet to pile up in this country a time will
soon come when there will be no Individual in
itlative left - Government control of nearly all
lines of business will mean that men will cease
to Invest their money In enterprises where profit
Is limited snd hazard made great by law.
Mr. Thomas also had the courage to say that
the packers were not plundering the country but
were as much Interested in Increased Rroductlon
as were the farmers and cattlemen. Too many
addresses before bankers' and farmers' con
ventions are mera stereotyped platitudes. Mr.
Thomas deserves all credit for saying emphat
ically what he thought and what he deemed It
well for the people to know. .
Atrocities at Home.
From th. Fmtmtn.
An ex-governor of a middle western state re
turned the other day from Russia, and Informed
his friends and neighbbors that they should not
think of paying a visit to the land of the soviet
republic. The advice was gratuitous; moreover,
he published it on what teems the .very wortt
.choice of a day a day when the chief organ
of middle-western opinion recorded aa taking
Elaee in and about the metropolis of the Great
akes certain incidents reminiscent of those
alleged to have been taken in Moscow two or
three yeart ago. The day't grist was as follows:
two cases of bomb-throwlns; several policemen
shot down; over a dozen holdups accompanied
by violence and assault; innumerable motor-car
accidents; the wholesale arrest of labor-leaders
for alleged conspiracy; the deliberate attempt
to destroy 72 apartments by incendiarism; and
last but" not least, the trial of the governor of
the state for alleged misapproproation of the
state's funds." "
These sre a few of the doings which greeted
the ex-governor on his arrival from the land
where law'n order it unknown and private prop
;rty stands tn Jeopardy. A little more advice
from our ex-governors; a few more murders,
bomb-outrages, holdups; robberies by officials,
departmental frauds and other such happening!

Time for a Test
Prom th. MlnnetoU Star.
. The American Civil Liberties league Is pre
paring to make a test of the powers of the pri
vate guards in the coal districts of Pennsylvania
An attorney! of the league went to Vintondale
this week where meetings of miners have been
dispersed by mine guards, held a meeting, and
was arrested on the charge of trespass by the
guards. Jn .return the attorney has had ar
rested the head' of the Vintou Colliery company
and four guards. . ,:
; There haa been much strong-arm work in
the mining-districts on the part of mine owners
and their private-guards. Meetings have been
rorbldden; , union organizers have been hustled
out of the mining towns. Free speech has been
made an unknown privilege.
It is about time the tyranny of these condi
tions was challenged. The representatives of
the Civi Liberties union cannot be brow beaten
as can a handful of miners. They are aware of
their civil rights and can defend them. The
union- has some means of letting the public
know what Is happening to its representatives
m the mining towns and has some funds to make
a fight 4
On the basis of what the Civil Liberties union
has been able to do in similar cases, we predict
the coal owners are going to have an uncom
fortabJe time with the attorney who went to
vintondale. The home of this excellent organ
ization is at -138 Thirteenth etreet, New York
city. The Civil Liberties union has a modest
budget supported by voluntary contributions,
