No Emergency It seems to us that Ihc sensible way out of tlio legislative tangle over liquor legislation would be for one house to pass the bill which lias already received the appiovnl of the other, and let the emeigeiicy clause die. Too much legislation caincs the emergency clause, \\lneli in most cases BCI-VCH no pinpcsc except tc ))lacc an obstacle in tho way of a popular referendum. The Couuei News favors Icgnli/n- tion of liquor, but we dp not see any occasion foi haste. We have mnnugcti to stuiggle along toi 11 number of years undei that anonwlous state of affairs which bcitih [lie iiHtne of prohibition and certainly no one is going to be .seriously hint it wu h.ive to endure it for anothei 90 days, If in the meantime opponents of legalization obtain the necessary petitions for a referendum, so much the bettei The issue is important enough to justify a statewide vote.

Byrcl. the impoitation of bauxite, the ore from, which aluminum is made. The production; of bauxite is the principal mdubtiy in onn of the smaller counties of this state. The mines are owned b> nou-ie.sidents and the oie is tianspoited elbcwherc to be re,fined To hhul out imports would no doubt ha\e a stimulating effect upon r OUTOUKWAY employment in (lie community whore {his ore Is produced, but the benefits so far as the stale as a whole is concerned would be negligible. The oilier side of the picture? The principal Industry of Arkaiisn« is Uin production of coilon. Prosperity for colton producers Is dependent upon foreign markets. Hecauae the United States is already Ihc world's creditor jn sums larger than the world can pay, and because the United States already has most of the world's gold, the amount of colton \ve can well abroad is very largely limited- by the amount of foreign products we are willing to accept in exchange. When Ine Arkansas legislature votes to shut out foreign goods it is in effect voting lo shut Arkansas coilon out markets. ' The protective ItirilV idea wits reduced to its logical absurdity in a resolution once olfcred by a K'ew York congressman, quoted this ween in me Texas Weekly: "Resolved: Tliat nil windows, skylights, ii:.s;|lo and oiri'jide Bhutto'-, curtains and blinds shall be pernnin- ently closed, as also all openings, holes, chinks, clefts, and fissures through which the light and heat of the sun have been allowed to enter houses lo the prejudice and injury of meritorious miners and dealers in gas and coal, to protect .'(loinuslic industry." "is not the sun a foreigner '!" asks (he Weekly. "And does it not provide us with many things free of cost, thus iJi-nulicJHg the most unfair kind of competition?" BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NBWg OUNCES By George Clark] The Sedition Bill Ilic projiosixl Arkansas sedition bill—it, Isn't, worth the nniicr it Is written on. You can not, In our. United Stiitcs, advocate iin urmcd utlack upon the civjl authorities. But anything short of that YOU CAN DO. This Is our constitution—the supreme law of u nation willed guarantees the right ot peaceful Rfjsembly and of free speech. And if DID legislature' happens to vlolnto those rights America will quickly enough find that liberty has no lack of potent und courageous Irlends in Arkansas. Thj trouble Is that so ninny pf out- leglslu- tors don't really know wlmt liberty meaiis. Jim Heed, of: Missouri, i, long time ago snid: _ "Llbtrts- Is Ilic right to bei. wrong." \ it may fc'thnl Commonwealth labor college—which hus no connection with our las- supported schools—Is teaching policies which you and I, who believe hi capital and a competitive business world, would disagree with. -But the state, having no financial interest in Commonwealth, has no right lo Interfere-any nioro than it lias the right to walk in my front door and tell me what to say in my newspaper. ir n Commonwealth man Is convicted of inciting riot, or plotting overthrowing the government by force, that is another matter. The IioUcc will arrest him, and lie may nerve time In Jail. But not because he is 11 Commonwealth man- not at all. It is rewired of both Ihc rich and the poor the learned and the illiterate, that they follow the ugo-old rules of luw and order. —Hope Slar.
