BYWJELIAMS One of the unexpected 'things accomplished by tl^e general strike in England has been to-consolidate the. Conservative party, to disrupt the! Llbei-als and to shoot the Labor pa^ty, into little pieces. In the^iberil party Lord Oxford and Lloyd George took different views of the strike' With the result that they'no linger speak as they pass by but qrb conducting a long distance correspondence so acrimonious thai it apparently removes any; j^ossibilily of future co-operation between these two leadJers. In the labor party Kamsay McDonald took the ground that the general strike was not in any sense revolutionary or unconstitutional while the more radical leaders declared that it was just those two things and was meanti to be a cliallenge to the government; So Stanley Baldwin, "Premier by grace ot a Conser\'ative victory, is sitting very easy these summer day^ Referendums on Nullification," is the phrase.in which the Topeka Capital sums up the demand of the Wets thdf: the people 'be allowed to vote on retaihing, repealing o'r modifying- the Eighteenth Amend- meni. And that hits It • off i pretty well. Nothing could be accomplished by these propospd referendums in a practical way, as the men who advocate them very well know. If the vote in any given 3tatc should be unanimous against prohibition it would not repeal the amendment ior modify the law. The only tiling |tlmt can come of siich u campaign! would be the encouragement of those who wisli to violate the law, and correspondingly greater,-difficulty on the part of the govprpment in oh forcing It. At last itiic United States Is to rise into the rank of civilljs.ed na- t^s in respect to a matter-concerning which it- has.-long been in a class with Uahomey and Tlmiiuc- too. Congress has appropriated 10 million' dollars which is to be ex- jicnded in building consulates and mhassiils abroad. The United States already owns embassies in London and Paris, (the London House Jiaving been given to the country by J. P. Morgan).; Bu£ in air other Capitols its diplcmiatic representatives have been obliged to rent quarters as if their coun-' try were too poor to afford to own its own home. It is certainly grat- After all the ^ountry ought not .to be too hard pn Congress because it 'has failbd' to enact a bill for.the relief of| agriculture. The reason is ;that Cbngress does not knoW; what kind of a bill will relieve agriculture'. That is' one trouble. Another trouble is that nobody else knows what kind of a bill will relieve agriculture. In point of fact the lovely rains which have fallen all over this section of Kansas d'tiring the past week have 'relieved agriculture more than all; the measnrj ^Bs of' legislation Congress could^ enact if it should remain In session the rest of the year.' ^ ' In accordance v.ith precedent i»ip Memorial Day address at Arlington National' Cemetery ^.-as made by the President. Thronph his orutioii PresiOent Coolidge htrcsKcd the thought that the American forces arc distinctly the forces of peace and the ways pf the American people arc ways ot peace, and urged that they continue such 'service through niuin- tuining a" public opinion devoted to pence and assisting in the settlement of iDteriiatlonal difficulties through the-^Vorld Court and the reduction of armaments. - Little Benny's Note Book • (By Lee Papa) ifying to know to be changed. that this is soon I Ft.
