Back We Go to ideas of mison and T. R. The Republicans having sounded oil' manfully against monopoly itnd monopolists, President Roo.scvolt speaks to Tcxans in the fume key; and it nil sounds like H In'CiUh. from Hie pnsl— from 1912,-say, when Woodrow Wilson and another Roosevelt wore rousing the people to realize thai democracy hits economic as well as political implications. You do not have to bu.s-o very old to remember the great anti-monopoly campaign of the pre-war years, nor do you have to be KO very obsen'iinl to discover that the .campaign fell on evil tinn's when the World War began. A nation which cast nearly 10,500,000 voles for anti-monopolists Roosevelt and Wilson in 1012 was willing in, 1920 to elect, an administration to which monopoly was part of Ihe natural order uf things. Andrew Mellon became secretary of the treasury and held the job longer than any other man before or since. Great oil combines got our petroleum reserves, and the country became indignant not because the combines got them, but because they paid bribes for them. Only the fact that George Norn.-- wa.s a great hvo-hamlod Iglitcr kept Henry Ford from getting Muscle Shoals. The Democratic party was able, with a straight face, to nominate a Mor- .„,.-,gaii,la\\yer (or the presidency?in 192'}.... "LaFolTolle 'crusaded as an anfi- ' monopolist, that year, sounded old- fa.shioned, ami touk a grout boiling. When Al Smith sought the presidency in 1928, his moderate 'efforts to curb monopoly were hailed as sure signs of socialism. Those things • were symptoms. We had got tired of the old crusade. -The public generally was indifferent lo the old battle crier. Kusiness was good and seemed to be gelling better. No- ' body wanted to bite the band thai was feeding him. And then, in 192!), .somebody pulled ihe plug. In the hard years that fol- '. lowed we began to learn things. We learned, for instance—what Wil;-on and T. R. bad told ns two decades before—thai political freedom is leas . than half a loaf, unless it be accompanied by a decent measure of economic freedom. If a man's right to earn a living is al the mercy of re- mole forces which he can neither control nor properly identify, lie is up . against a thing which, as the Republican' platform 'remarks, "will utlerly destroy conslilutional government and the liberty of the citizen." So now we are back where we were 2'1 years ago; or, to be more cxacl, we are back in Hint frame of mind, but with a> new knowledge and a new determination. Bolli candidalcs arc pledged lo carry on the light of prewar years, it Is not without significance that Roosevelt Is an old \Vilsonian and Landpn an old Hull Mooser. —Bruce Cation. An Outrage Citixcns of Arkansas who have read with horror of the lawless brutalities practiced in the name of a perverted patriotism by the brown- sbirled thugs of Hitler's Germany and She black-robed ruffians of Detroit's Jltack Legion must bang their heads in . shanio al the parallel afforded by the incident at Earlc Monday in which a minister and u woman were seized and beaten by a halt'-do/.cn men. The cowardly and indcfenUblu act will be condoned by some on the grounds that, as Socialists and sympathizer-it with an unpopular strike, (he two victims merit no sympathy. Perhaps they don't.,, For all we know they may be fools, visionary idealists, meddlesome busybodies or secret plotters of revolution. tful their political and social views and llic amount of common sense they possess are beside the point, which simply' is that no community and no state can afford to lot any group of individuals arrogate to itself lite right to pass jmlKincnt or inflict punLhmenl upon anyone. 'The fascist terror will be here indeed when citizens cannot go peaceably about their affairs in Arkansas without moh'stalion and mistreatment'. The governor says that Ihe constitution forbida him taking any action in the matter. .Sheriff Curlin says that he can 1 do nothing'unless the victims, warned "to stay out; of the county . on pain of death, come before him and 'makc"l'ol1nal'eoniplaint. • 'it is sliaine- fu» enough thai such an incident could have happened. ..It will be immeasurably • worse'% .nothing is done about it or if it is left to the federal government, which is reported lo be sending an.'.invcfstiga'.loV.
