The attitude of recognise Uptt- ed States iiassports In the hands of TAWsis certalqly oCpeaslvc to'the-dig* nlty of thit Natlon| as well as an affront to its sense of-^Justice. A Jew who escapes from Russia, comes to America and Is ^naturalised- herej Js as much entitled to.the.prntectloD;of,our flag as the naturalised citizen oC'aiU' other race or religion, and there ought "]|o be- some way to exercise that pro- lection. "I want also |o suggest to you that you at once urgently request the State central committee of your State to arrange for a presidential preference primary election,." is the closing sentence in the letter which W. L. Houser chairman of the LaFoUette campaign ^^ommittee at Washington has been scattering around over Kansas. It'Is said that a good many thousands of these letters have been received-in this sUte. and that as many as twelve Of the recipients have written.-to the ^tate Committee as requested. Kansas Republieani are very much.given to the.idea that they can look after .their own business. mSBEWABD. 7~IUiB>einber as.yon read it please /-aat^the followii^ fajfrom the editor- f ;M npfge a^fm Toprte Capital: • CUasiaiead delivered a glow: taq; :AqliKy^<tf$^-olB:«oldiers. in thr - HajfeiT^lMmMWhlp iii his- Stat< c^fiUwicti Society address, though he *i satwto^maA-widusis to Quay and •»L>*' N6r Tiidn-^fn the country, li hBidd. mis^ more appropriately IdffneilMle ^Miei^ta*'tor' stKb. an'ad- di !8ift :,^6r;jtiaess.«e are mistaket i^GiaaiNtlMfl''«as the last of thr „^pl river: A few veterans re- tram Conn«6tis«t Pennsylvania fwid yothttr «n ^C]« :8tMe6' per- FbUt! when Calderbead re- I tUk, XNur^ no, oldf soldlAr re- M^TtmmMetM braiRh of the West, Senator Wlar ...

That'is 0 say, somebody gets as much, merely for transferring, products from the producer to the consumer, as the pro- ^'icer-gets for all'his time and toll .ind invested capital. It Is another Illustration of the fact that the weakness of our economic system is the distribution port of It. Whot is the remedy? The November Bulletin of the-fln- \ematlonaI Institute of Agricuttdre unfortunately backs up \he Sugar ^rnst in lu claims that present high prices are due to a poor crop of sugar and not to the control of the mar> ket by the Trust. According to this "^lletln the beet sugar crop of Russia is less than half as great this year as last, while all over Europe, notwithstanding an increase of over 100 per cent in acreage the yield, is far below that of last year. May^e the tniets do tell.the truth once in a while. The moreyoa tblnV about it the. leas nkely you are to waste much sympathy on that man Darrow. In the first place he received a fee of not less than $50,000 and possibly $100,000, and jia ^hUttdMdT dollars a day addlOraitt Sac respemres.'

And finally if he jlid not: lUnself direct the men who were so basy bribing jurors, he can hardly have failed to know that such '^rk was. going on. Mt. Darrow may yet have some explaining to do. Tliere Is a story going the rounds,— the Register has heard it from several indq;iendent sources,—that a large proportion of the letters being "received in the Governor's office "Urging" a special session of the legista-. pUB were first seat out- tnmrthe; G»t- emor's office With a request that they be signed and -ret u med. And is THAT another source of the "tremendous pressure" for a special session that the Governor is finding it hard to resist? k; K. C.
