Democracy's Danger Victory brings tlill'iailUe.s no luss si'i'ioti.s thitn (liosc resulting from <lo- 1'ont. The Democratic parly, .siipmnc . ;is it lias nevur lieun since tlie col- l; of llu: Whig opposition nearly ii hundred years ;ijfi>, i.s unleriiifr upon one of Hie most critical iiuriods of its lu'slory. in compk'lo ;ii)i] mit'lwllwik'i'd control of the national government and of most of the stale governments, the party has the power to curry through any program upon which it can unite. But the Democratic' parly, as it i.s constituted today, is a unify un nothing except perhaps a general acceptance, net without reservations, of the leadership of Franklin IX lioo.sovdl. There i.s a conservative Democratic party, as cool toward much of the New Deal iis tin: scattered renmanls of the Republican old guard, a radical, almost "social revolutionary" Domo- cralie party, pressing far ahead of tlie administration in the search for Utopia, and a grail middle group containing in iUell-moderates of various shades of opinion and (he inevitable .scattering of fouls, opportunists and demagogues. In the current issue of Time it is pointed out that She history of American political parties shows that when one great parly dies it leaves no successor but that the surviving jiarly sum splits to give the country ils traditional two-parly form of gov- onmieiif. Jl ha.s ln^n evident for some time that a new political alignment was needed in this country. A few years ago, when the Democratic parly seemed almost on its death bed, there developed tension within the Kepublicati party that, (hrcatened a division. Holicii iM. U h'olietlc, running as a Progressive, polled ()V er 5,000,000 votes for the presidency in 192.}. Coolidge prosperity healed'that, In-each and the Hoover depression brought the Democratic party hack to dominance. Now, with the Republican party reduced to impotence, it is the Democratic party that i.s threatened with disintegration. The danger is not imminent. The personal hold of tin: president seems strong enough to keep the party together for some time to come. Hut ultimately there must come a change. One party, lacking a strong unifying j ssllCi camlo i. ,, crnum . OUT OUR WAY unU.v hold the diverse elements that are now enrolled under the Democratic banner. Unemployment Insurance There i.s every reason to believe that the upproitching session of congress will sec the enactment of some form of unemployment insurance legislation. The, president, ha.s made a definite declaration for such action, congress apparently is favorable, and tliere is little evidence of strongly organized opposition, even from such business interests as might be expected to light it. As a general proposition tliere is little to be said against giving the wage earner's livelihood some protection against tlie exigencies of llucUwl- ing business and industriiil activity. In theory, if not always as a pnic- licul proposition, tlie worker can pro- led himself and his family against loss of income as a result of illness, old age or death, lint against loss of employment^ as a result ed' shiflu),g demand for'.' the .gij'ods: jus" Crlipldyei) produces or sells he has no' safett'iaftfj It can hardly bo called imrwisoirjiblpj to ask .that- employers whose , b|it|fa- lions rctpiire, the existence of a supply 1 of labor which may be called in as needed and turned out when not needed should bear some part <;f the cost of maintaining such a supply. Mr. Roosevelt has declared that the unemployment: insurance plan to be adopted .should depend upon "contributions" rather than upon taxation. This does not mean (hat participation should be voluntary, but simply Hint the necessary reserves for paying mi- cmiiloymenf benefits should IK: built up by levies upon employers, and possibly also upon employes, rather than willi funds from the federal or state treasuries. H is Ihe president's idea, in other words, that those whose operations make unemployment insurance nccos- sary, and perhapn also those who would lie ils direct beneiiciaries, should bear the cost rather than the general run of taxpayers. This is sound, ' and to tany tlie idea through In i| K logical conclusion provision should be made for segregation of flu: reserves built up by each employing establishment to tlie end that those employers who are successful in stabilizing their own payrolls should not be compelled to pay for the failure of others to do so, as would be the case were all contributions paid into one pool. l''urlhcrmore, it j s important that a clear line be drawn between unemployment insurance and relief. Work- 'ers stranded through collapse or permanent decline of the industries in which they were employed are a problem distinct from temporarily without work as a result of business fluctuations.
