These are questions that Congress at least might consider. The Kansas legislature : agreed without a dissenting vote in either house to ratify the so-called ''lame ducli" amendment to the ConstitUr tlon of the United States. This Is an amendment providing that after it.goes into effect the President aioA the Congress elected in November khall take office in the following January, instead of March 4. The dates of the sessions of Congress will be changed correspondingly so that the old Congress will not bold any session at all after the'electlMi 01 a new one. For illustration, if this plan had been. in effect this year. President-elect-Roosevelt wouW have been Inaugurated January 10 and the Congress shosen with hhn would have convened on the same date. The confusion and.futility now on exhibition in Washington, with the pld President and the old Congress trying to carry on but virtually unable to do anything, is a spectacle which seems to leave no ground for opposition to the new plan. : PinLipPINE "FREEDOM." The United States Senate has fol- ibwpd thf bad example of the House of fiepro.sontatives and has voted, Cfi to, 26, to override the Prcsidenf.s vtkp of the rPhillppine irideiiendence bill,— o bUr which Is generall? stigmatized, by the njost fair-minded . and independent press of the country; as the betrayal of a trust insofar as the Filipino people ^are concerned, and as ill-tirried, misleading aVid dangerous with re .spect to the interests of the United States. Referring to the vote in the House on the motion to override the President's veto, befire the vote in the Senate was taken, the New York .Herald-Tiibune declares: "No more •disgraceful vote stands on the House record.•'.The New York Times characterizes the same vote as •'shortsighted and reckless," and declares that the bill Is '•stamped aU over Wlih selfishness, and has wrapped iip; in it incalculable national, perils." ] tt does not lessen the disgrace of ihe House and Senate in voting to bVbrnde the ^President 's veto, but it ^.in.Sy relitjve the apprehensions of .the country to note that the Philippine legislature has promptly and Tunahimbusly decided, not to accept the bill and not to act under it. In Jthe bill .as it stands there is no pro- 'vision to call out the army and navy j.find compel the Filipinos to accept the bill; although it is not impossi- :ble that a Congress which would ';pass such a measure as this would go, even to that length. ; Tliq Register already has discussed this legislation at some length and will not weary its readers with rlurther review. This paper confesses to some surprise, however, that .•in all the debate over the matter no one in Congress has. raised the q^ues- iipn of trie right of Congress to haul ddwh the Ainerican flag in the Philippines and alienate American territory. - Thtj Supreme Court, of the United States has declared that the Philippine Islands, after the treaty with Spain, became "a possession" of;the United States. The archipelago became the iiroperty of the Nation . Now the people, citizens of the Republic, are the Nation. The Federal government, which acts •through , Congress,! has only such power as :,1,he people have delegated to it, and such powers as are hot expressly .delegated are reserved to the peo- >ple. Have the people at any tihie or i through any instrument ever ^delegated to the Federal government the right to take the people's property and give it to somebody else? vHave the people ever delegated, to the right; to withdraw : United States sovereignty fromi any part of the territory of the United • States? Could Congress return Alaska; to Russia, Texas, Arizona and r California to -Mexico, eleven States of the Union to Prance. Florida to ; Spain? No one would answer that : question in the affirmative. And yet . the Philippine Islands are as jtnily ]a |3art of the United States as are •the states of the Louisiana pur- 1 chase, or the States that came to us . by; conquest from Mexico. • it may be argued that since Con- grfess has the power to acquire terri- ; tory by treaty, it has also the powc i to dispose of that; territory. The : ariswor is that when Congress ac' quires territory it does so as the ag- ; eitt of the people, the territory be; comes the property of the people, '_at*cl Congress cannot dispose of it ; Without a mandate from the people: \ Tlie Civil War determined that a state of the Union cannot lay aside • the sovereignty of the Nation at will [ and set up a sovereignty.of its own. : By.What right, then, does the Con: gi-ess presume to hit the sovereignty ! of the Nation from possesslpns where it has rested for a third of a century? .Where is the Constitutional provision, the law or the precedent for;;hauling down the American flag Senator F. J. Oyler has introduced in the State Senate three bills that I are attracting a good deal df atteiition. One bill authorizes'coun­ ty commissioners to cut to three feet all hedges within 50 yards of a railroad grade crossing, an abrupt turn In the highway, or a highway junction, and to remove all bill boards and other obstructing signs ^yithin tlie same areas. Another would require the State to purchase all its supplies within the State, including material used in highway and building construction. A third bill prohibits the Issuance by any- court of a deficiency judgment in the case of foreclosure of a mortgage upon rear estate. There is one country in the world where the peope are not Ukely to jget much excited over technocracy, That is Jugo Slavia. One hundred years ago it took a Serbian peasant 1.000 hours to do a certain piece of work. Now it takes him 999 hours. FO"RUM (Contribntions ;to the Forfim niu.s^ not be more than 300 words.

YEARS AGO Items from The Register of January 18, 1908. "The State Senate of Kansas is starting out bravely in the matter [of lessening unemployment. It has authorized itself to appoint 109 employees, including a secretary ^ for each member,—about two aind "one- half employees to each Senator. From Other Papers j GIVE BEER. Emporia Gazette: A friend of The Gazette was in the office today showing an editorial from a brewers' publication explaining that as soon as the free beer bill was passed in congress, the brewers would have to spend millions of dollars creating an appetite for beer. Attention was called to the fact that cigarets were introduced by spending millions on advertising—so were gum, complexion soap, and cube sugar and various types of gasoline and that the Americans are not: naturally beer drinkers. The article in the brewers' riiaga- zlne declared that the place to begin this advertising was in the "high schools and colleges to create the appetite. Sure and why not? Isn't personal liberty vastly more important than the fact that the manufacturers of a habit-forming drug are planning to create an appetite there and to make millions of addicts? Laws controlling the sale of liquor or prohibiting it change with the generations. But liquor, whether It is hard or soft, gin, whisky beer or brandy, always is an outlaw against any control. It was this outlawry which produced prohibition. Once let the liquor interests, the distillers or the brewers,: get - going good and they will break any law. In their greed they will create an over-stimulated desire for their goods—make addicts out of youth,, over-sell the poor, corrupt government, breed gangsters and raise hell in general. ' • . • So give 'em beer and give it as soon as possible. But don't let the Republicans be blamed for it. When the Democrats come in the skids Will be greased toward a beer bill. The quicker we get beer the sooner the repeal movement will be busted high^r'n a kite. After the beer bill it will not get 20 states in the union, despite the fact- that it might now carry 40 states.. So as a convinced prohibitionist, who believes that the sale of habit- forming drink in America should not be tolerated, we say give 'em beer, give 'em all they want. Give "em room according to their strength and in a year the same righteoas indignation which lashed America into prohibition will whip the old booze idevil around the stump and tie up repeal tighter - and deader than a bull H^^a tanyard. : St. Paul—Election returns come in slowly in some of the northwest sections of Minnesota—in fact, sometimes they never come In. W. H. Borgen of Duluth, St. Louis county auditor, disclosed here today that returns in the November, 1928, election in one precinct, never have been received. There are about 25 voters In the precinct. Ballots were sent to the precinct, in the north woods wilds on the Canadian border, by railroadj automobile and canoe, but never came back. "We just forgot It and dosed our election records," Borgen said. There has been but one drunk arraigned in police court this month. This is perhaps the best record ma^e by the city for a number of years. Up to a short time ago there were always from one to five drunks arraigned each morning. This would indicate that drunks stay off the street or that there is'l^ss drinking. . Miss Nellie 'Vamer. niece of J. J. Varher ofj this city, who .is studying music at I the Kansas State . unir verslty, has been called to Toijeka where she! takes up the work of assistant enrolling clerk to 'the legislature.

To the Editor: • I wish you would call the attention of the iarmers to the fact that they are fast depleting this country of a;great benefit we have been enjoying: in the way of shade and wind breaks — a gift to us by our fathers and grandfathers, many of whom never lived to reap the friuts of their time arid money. 'We will soon have as windy and as dry and parched a country as the west one- third of this state. We older people have. seen and known the difference since this country has been made over in the rainfall and velocity of the wind. The pi'esent generation doesn't realize what they are doing In destroying what their fathers and grandfathers were preparing for them, hedges for posts and windbreaks. Now they are cutting and burning the posts for fuel instead of coal or gas. They use their little change to buy gasoline and oil to go joy riding, instead of buying fuel. Two-thirds of all these farms need I these posts for their fences. A wood-chopper told me he had sawed hundreds of fine. posts into stove wood, as he could not sell them and needed the fuel. For the last ,two years there has been a great.destruction of shade trees and hedge. I see some have even destro.ved the fine big shade trees that were in their door yard, that threw a fine .shade over their house and were a protection from a bolt of electricity. When I came hero 38 years ago. there was not a bush on this half section and no fence. Now I have a row of trees, three-quarters of a mile along the road, ash and elm. It is • on the north side of the road running cast and west. It affords a fine shade for my stock. The trees are 40 to 50 feet high and afford a good windbreak for my neighbor's stock, on tb.e .south. If I^ were .yone I ex|)ect thov would feel the a.x. W. M.
