Tht Proposed Sedition Law If a bill passt'd Saturday by (lie Arkansas house of representatives becomes law a person may bo .sentenced to live to twenty years impriaonmenl upon conviction of encouraging "any person to commit an overt act with u view of bringing 1 the government into public hatred or contempt." Without pietcmling to understand exactly what was thu intention of the author of this measure or of the woithy assemblymen who voted for it, we beg leave to suggest Hint''it sounds veiy much ;ib if. lese majesty \uis to be made a uime in Arliansus. Loins XIV. of Kiance could Hay, "I am the slate," and make it stick. To bold Louis in h<ttrcd_or contempt was treason and punishable as such. The Ficnch people finally tired of Hint, which is another story. In-Italy,- in Germany and in Russia today governments make loyalty to them the test of-loyalty to country, Dut thu United States is supposed to be a free country. If you think its government, or the goveinment ot any of its political subdivisions, meats haticd and contempt, it i^ youi puvilcjjc lo say so, and to do what you can to persuade others to your point of view. That is the essence of political freedom. The mcmbeib ot. llie Arkansas house of icpie^enlutives, if we arc not 7iiK)tiikeJi, ai_e without exception .iiipm- berh of the Dcmocuilic party. That p.uly honors as il.s'founder and as the author of its fundamental principles Thomas Jclteison, who wrote- the dec- laiation of American independence and was the third and one of the 'greatest Ameiican presidents, and among whose achievements was the bringing under the American flag of the great, region of which the hlate of Arkansas is a pai t A few isolations from Mr. Jelfcr- son may be of interest: "I like a little lebcllipn now and then . . The .spinl of resistance to goveinment is 4,0 valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive It uill often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exeiuscd at a!l.' A —From a letter to Mrs. Jolin Adan;s, commenting on Shays Rebellion, in Massachusetts, an uprising; by. farmers against oppressive taxation. And again, in another letter on the same subject: "God forbjd we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all and always well informed. The. part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it. is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty." And later, after he had become president of the United Status, in explaining his refusal to permit .enforcement of the sedition law of the Atlams administration: "I discharged every person under punishment or prosecution under (lie Sedition Law, because I considered, and now consider, that law to be a nullity, as absolute and palpable as if congress had ordered us to fall down and worship n, golden image; and that it was as much my duly lo arrest its execution in every stage as it would have been to rescues from, the liery furnace those who should have been cast into it Cor refusing to worship the image." Decline of Cojjee If you happen to bu the average American colleo drinker you drank less coll'ee last year than in the year before—some 10 cups less, lo be exact. This is oil the word of the New 'York Coffee and Sugar Exchange, which has just finished a survey showing that the consumption of cod'oe in the United States fell off during 193-1— which, by the way, was the livst full year of repeal. Now there are two possible explanations of tliis fact, neither of them, to our notion, worth a great deal. You might say thai a lot of people wiio used lo drink colt'cc arc now drinking ahoholie beverages, and that that is why coll'ee consumption has dropped. Or—remembering the desperate, way in which a man gropes for lols of black coll'ee on the morning •."«fter a thorough bender—you could •argue .that the decline in coll'ee consumption last year reflects a similar decline in the drinking of hard liquor. As wo say, we don't think much of cither explanation. l preler to take risks. —Premier Flnmliii of France. * * * We cnn Investigate Jim Farley for le.=s money Mian spent Investigating me.
