Campaign Promises and 'Coon Hounds THE most stimulating little story of the fall has to do with 1 "the politician over in Kentucky who got into a jam with the authorities for promising- too much to the voters. This man was running for his party's nomination for sheriff. As the backbone of his campaign platform, he vowed that, if elected, he would not collect the dojr tax on 'coon -hounds — which, considering the wide-spread ownership of 'coon dogs in his baliwick, was calculated to appeal to everybody. But a circuit judge stepped in and ruled that this was an attempt to bribe the electorate. For that reason, the judge ruled the candidate off the ballot and brought his campaign to an inglorious conclusion. * -K * T O the baffled candidate, to say nothing of the 'coon dog owners of Kentucky one must extend sympathy. But it is impossible to avoid "a little dreamy speculation about the revolution that would be worked in American politics if this circuit judge's ruling should be applied to all candidates for . office, high and low. Promising everybody everything is the oldest standby . of our campaigns. Everyone does it. The Kentuckian, limiting himself to one direct appeal to the 'coon dog vote, seems r to have been pretty moderate. If a candidate can't offer ! special privileges to different groups of voters, how is any .American ever to run for anything? Take the congressman, for example. He has to promise things: a new postoffice. or an appropriation for dredging. -^straightening and beautifying Mud creek, or an extra share «of the relief allowance for his district. Such promises are his "stock in trade,. How could he live without them ? t Or — to ascend to more rarefied air — consider the presi- ^dential candidate. Boiled down, his platform usually amounts vto just about this: elect me and I will see that you are ^prosperous and happy, that the wolf stays far from your door, '-that foreign peace and domestic order reign, that your taxes iiwill be reduced and your businesses flourish. My opponent is «too, tin worthy, and untrustworthy to give you these things, "jbut I— I will be the fountainhead of all pood things- v- ;-'..-' * * * TLAW campaign promises, and you would immobilize a good percentage of all our presidential candidates — past, present Vnd to come. The situation is dreadful to contemplate. ut,. we, might, just possibly, live through- it. We might to struggle through to an order of things in which offered themselves to the electorate on the basis 'principles, not promises ; in which we elect men not because •"of : what they were going to get for us. but because of how StSey were going to guide our efforts to help ourselves. *;?• The, transition period would be bewildering, but in the we ought to have a much saner and healthier political life. goes the mother with her own ideaes' 22 Alletld Methodist of wholesome enlightenment for her j family.

The reason why no such agreement can be accepted at ''its face value until its actual fruits can be examined is, of •.course, the perfectly obvious fact that the foreign powers involved are not primarily interested in getting the volunteers -out of Spain. They are chiefly concerned with seeing to it that one side or the other gets some advantage out of the deal. It ; ns a safe bet that if they can work this new withdrawal ugree- "jrrient to provide such an advantage they will do it. So we can only wait and see . . . while Spain continues to suffer her long agony of a war which half of Europe is '.helping to keep alive. and fixed in normal fense, they would safer, there i.s no doubt. It is not much it case of what is best, but of what we can do with a .situation thiil exists. If n mother knows very well thnt her children are worldly wise, smart: i and "nobody's fools." it is hopeless for her to continue to treat them ns in- i fonts who have heard not, seen not. and talked not. She must face facts and take off the blinders. First of all she must not be shocked nt their frankness. Otherwise they will put her down as the infant. And she .'..till has influence, notwithstanding. She can show how self-control nnd unpleasant duty are the foundation of conflicting forces. And she may drop the word "wicked" if it irks her sophisticates, and substitute "unwise." Above- all. she can dwell on the enormous dangers of free will, and the un- hnppincss that follows upon weakness and license.
