HE WAS DICTATOR The death of Alexander Stambou- 1 lisky, deposed premier of Bulgaria, marks the passing of another of the self-styled liberators of the peoples of Europe who turned out to be a dictator. ' Coming from the humblest of peas ant origin, this man of massive frame and unlimited energies, be came one of the most picturesque figures In Bulgarian history. It was his leadership which vault-r'od him Into prominence, and his opposition to the war policies of Fer dinand who sympathized and Joined with .the central powers, - that brought his trial and conviction for treason, and his sentence to life ira prisonment. The armistice caused his release, and with tlie col'.arso of the rule of Ferdinand, he became not only the premier of the realm, but Its dictator. In his hands It Is said that Boris, present king, was a mere puppet. The will of the premier was forced at every angle, regardless of the consequences, and as a crowning achievement of his (rule, records now show that he planned to force the abdication of the king, and the naming of himself to that high po sltion. Power 'and Influence went to the head of the peasant premier. The mania for reform carried him to ex tremes that were fast proving dis astrous to the nation at large. From an emancipator, to whom the peus ants looked for a redress of their grievances, Etamboullsky became dictator of the most pronounced or der. And when the final test of his government came, he fell, as all die tators fall. And he found few ready ( stand with him to the last. NOT MUCH CHANGE If reports of the actual condiyons In China are true, the flight of the president and the resignation of his cabinet can hardly have any great effect on the government of the nation as a whole. The Pekln rule, it Would, seem, is that in name only. The talk of the central government Is only talk, for in China there exists such a govern ment only in name. In actual work ing powers it has no such function as does the central government of any other nation. China is a nation of cantons, There aref some 18 of them, and each is ruled by a military dictator, who holds sway through the force of his army. The combined mill tary forces of the nation's cantcni Is reported at over 1.360,000, the largest standing army of any people in the world. These dictators do not recognize the Pckin government as the central power. The cantons send their re presentatives to the parliament, 'tis true, but that parliament, insofar a actual Jurisdiction over the nation is concerned, has little to say. The edicts that the canton chiefs are in . favor of they will"obey. Those which they disagree with, they will not, There was great rejoicing in the " BIJOU ROBIN HOOD" AT THE BIJOU AB STRAND REGENT ' DARLING "DITTO.' which he 'had saved by working sev enteen hours a day, seven days week, for eighteen years, without vacation, "Little Joe" Jacobs at New York appealed to Magistrate Oberwager for summonses.

K. ver? literal sense of the word, part of a movement" In the interest of bet ter 'international understanding ol speech for those who use English on both sides of the ocean. The members of the association also contribute to International har mony by putting- a Just estimate upon the importance and value of the national Idioms, local dialects and slang which prevail in the various countries where English is spoken. The tendency always is to think that the other man's slang is vulgar, that his Idioms are bar barous, and that his dialect is a sign of crude uncultured mind, one's own peculiarities of speech, person al and national, are, on the other hand, considered excellent English. It follows that when a man from Michigan meets another from York shire each may under -estimate the merits of the other because of differences In speech wlfich are in fact inconsequential The same sort of thing gets into literature, and the authors of both countries gibs back and forth in an endless exchange pt polite sneers over questions of lin guistlo usage that might be a cause of mutual admiration if there were leas Bigotry on such matters and more knowledge. Really there Is much that is good to be said about much of the Eng lish that Is not quite English where-ever it is spoken The new-made slang of America now and then sup plies the English-speaking world with a word or an expression that conveys meaning never precisely ex pressed before. Some of the old world dialects using simple words in unfamiliar ways go to the heart of an idea or feeling in a manner that no product of court or college can equal. The assembled professors of English, the Free Press concludes. learn something about these mat ters from each other, and part to spread a more intelligent respect for good English in all of its nation al and geographical varieties. Now is the time to think about and Tuesday is the day to voting, vote. The Reds in Russia are reported ipraying for Lenine. Perhaps because he preyed on them.

It will require a tremendously big sponge, and a lot of effort in using it, if Detroit is to be dried up. What has become of the old fash ioned orator who wrote out the notes for his speech on his celluloid cufts? f The pacifist who has argued that the time has come when there'll be no more war, might take a look at what is happening in Bulgaria and the other Balkan states.

Busy at Atlantic City (By the Associated Pros) Atlantic City, N. J., June 16. A running fight in which several volleys of shots were fired, occurred early today between rum runners and government boats. Many bullets whistled over the board walk, driving night owls to cover. Shortlyy before midnight two government boats from Barnegal, pa trolling the inlet! waters, sighted several runners about 200 feet from shore, attempting to make a landing. The government craft, calling on the smugglers to stop, attempted to surround them. The runners escaped in the fog after putting on full speed, sweeping in sov close to the shore that they almdst touched bottom and then dashing in single file out to sea. Both sides exchanged shots freely. The sea fight could be seen clear-ly from the board walk section of the inlet. A few seconds after bul lets began to fly, the board walk, astir with midnight promenaders, was deserted. Nn one ashore was hit.

But there has never been, a republican form of government in the nation. The' rule established was that of a die-, tator, and it collapsed when the dictator himself attempted to assume the role of emperor. The present government is filled with graft of the most scientific nature. In fact it is cammonly acceot- ed that the public offlcials are supposed to help themselves to a portion of the receipts from taxes, and nothing will be said if the portion appropriated Is not too large. In the days of the monarchy there was a central government. It held its power through the force of arms, through the power of superstition and reverence of the Chinese for their ancestors, and through the drastic measures taken against any wlrf opposed. But the power and prestige' of ,the central government collapsed with the monarchy, and has never been revived. . So that the flight of the Chinese president doesn't mean so much to a nation in which he was merely a figurehead, lacking power and tacking tha strength to enforce anything which would border on nation-al unity. 1 FOR BETTER UNDERSTANDING The, meeting of American and British professors of English .which is ' "V . .
