Great causes do not justify ouf departing from cohsti- tutiotiaf'govet»iment,-ekcept under penalty of the gravest of disasters-r-the loss of representative government and perhaps out' individual 'liberty. The Navy League must wait its turn beiore a commitee of congress, as just another lobbying grdup>-perhaps such a group as our own late Senator Caraway despised and cursed as the greatest menace to democratic government. When;a Navy League can appeal successfully from the president's, order, to the people instead of to the congress, •then the Navy 'League is running the United States and not the people's chosen representatives. ' Such a situation exists today in Japan, where the Military 'Party dominates the entire government from Parliament to Prime Minister and Emperor. A crisis in Japanese foreign affairs is acted on by the national parties subject to final approval of the Military. But it was to escape from this sort of thing that we Americans built this nation of ours. Here, civil authority is supreme—and Mr. Gardiner must cool his heels on a bench outside a congressional committee-room just the same as any other citizen. , The Navy League -represents moM iHan the Navy, it represents a way of handling public buntWss which is oppressive of officeholders and a dire tnmt tor the rights and liberties of the COfflwon people. This lti«ftwer tff business is not confined to the federal government It reaches down into every legislature of the 48 states. Here in Arkansas we have seen every newapaper and independent citken rise Up in wrath because the chairman of th State Highway Comniitsiod undertook to dictated icies of that legislature Whitih had created him, and to legislature he is a bound servant in the eyes dfihe'lftW this very day. We wer^ «n|fer«d 'because .the 'fth&frmah of the State Highway Commission, from 'being a paid servant of the state, had attempted'to become a lobbyist upon'the very government he was supposed 1;o serve. And little by little,-as the facts are'unfolded, we .learn that this lobbying' by >a department -of the ^fltate furnished a worth-while lesson to the -county judges .... they tot headed ior Little Rock nearly a year ago and bamboozled the legislature into'raising the gasoline tax from 5 cents to 6 cents so tMt said judges might draw ^increased salaries back in their voting precirtcts. ' All this imerely means that we face a-perpetual danger of losing representative government through the interferenc of lobbies between ourselves and the'men we^elected. Some times the lobbyists are private citizens seeking to help them selves from the public exchequer; sometimes they are t composite group df private and public men like the Navy League merely attempting to force a particular .program Over the heads of the established government—and sometimes these lobbyists are the very men we elected to state and county'off ice. BUt whoever they be, and wherever they are, they will be attacked, ridiculed and beaten, as often as they shall rise up to Challenge American government and a liberty-loving people.—W. cii™* IfciNiJ* HeMth WTtfi.

It is being handled differently in Capone's case; and it 'little hard for the ordinary citizen to understand why wouldn't be a good course to follow in all such cases.

OI'S Howe who is yltendinl school in Hope, spent Saturday and Sunday I think the first man qualified to write a column of wisecracks for the newspapers must have lived about 250 years ago. Reading Voltaire's "Letters on the English" I find this: "The members of the English Parliament are fond of comparing themselves to the old Romans. In my opinion the eopple of England have nothing in common with the people of Rome .... The Roman senate, who were so unjustly, so criminally proud as not to suffer the plebians to share with them in anything, could lind no other artifice to keep the latter out of the administration than by employing them in foreign wars. They considered the plebians as a wild beast, whom it behooved them to let loose upon their neighbors, for fear they should devour tehri masters. Thus the greatest defect in the Government of the Romans arised them to be conquerors. By being unhappy at home, they rti- umphed over and possessed themselves of the world." I am taking a chance—quoting Voltaire in a newspaper. Some editors would tell me I was wrnog. Voltaire belongs in a book. People haven't time for the classics in a newspaper. But 1 think these editors are Voltaire has written a paragraph on the Romans that is as modern as though Will Rogers wrote it yesterday. "By being unhappy -at home, they triumphed over and possessed themselves of the world." Voltaire's paragraph reminds me of the anecdote of Mr. William Gladstone, one-time premier of England. Mr. Gladstone liked to walk. One day while out walking he came across a farmer, also walking. Mr. Gladstone asked the -farmer, "I see you are like me, you wish to walk;" "No," said the farmer, "the fact'is, I am out walking because my chimney smokes so badly I can't stay in the house." About that time they reached the farmer's gate. The man turned up the walk to his door-step. But the door flew open and a large woman, arms swiminging and a broom-handle threatening, drpve him back again with much abuse. "Ah," said Mr. Gladstone sadly, "the truth is, my friend, my chimney smokes sometimes, too." with home folks. Bob Patterson and Alfred Black were in Hope Saturday. R. A.
