Do you realise that Wall Street and the moneyed Interests are the leaders in the attack on the Prohibitory amendment and for repeal? Insult be* fore his crimes compelled his residence abroad was a director of the association against prohibition; Mitchell of unsavory bank fame in New York City is another leader, the DuPonU, Raskob, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., et al — all are fighting it that they may have something to tax that the poor man will have to pay and their own big fortunes escape the income tax. Do yon realise that one of the principal motives ot the anti- prohibition movement is to establish and maintain control of congress by the great prlvl- I financial Interests? ^ ^u^'.-1--^--" ' ^ r --" just preceding the war, show an increase ot 72% in housebreaking; 129% in shop-breaking; 123% in entering with in* tent to commit felony; 143% in obtaining money under false pretenses, and from 149% to 196% Increases In various classifications of fraud. Dispatches of the Associated Press recently published in America indicate that there have been still further alarming increases in violent crime, particularly of the bandit and gunman type, In Great Britain. On a recent occasion, the police of Great Brit* ain threw a cordon around the city of London. Oreat Britain is NOT under prohibition. There can be nothing more utterly absurd than to say that the recent election was a mandate against prohibition. The truth is that Oov. Roosevelt carried every dry area in the country except Maine. When Kansas cast its vote for Roosevelt, did it intend thereby to indicate Its disapproval of prohibition? The wets seem to have no respect whatever for the intelligence ot the American people. Our April showers seem have waited until May. to Some do not like to live in a rural community because it is too "dead." We suggest that any,of that.belief try to cover Did Prohibition Cause Crime Wave? They tell us that prohibition has caused a crime wave in the United States.

The fallacy ot this statement is again proved by the case ot that local youth who was sentenced to ten years in the penitentiary last week. This boy wanted a short cut to wealth. He was unwilling to follow the normal 'channels of industry to galu for himself the good things of life. He believed that it was foolish, to work when money could be had just by appropriating that which belonged to someone else. His punishment is but one indlca* tion of the evil results of his policy. "Only gaps work" is wrong in every light. Nothing comes to us lu tuls world except by conscientious effort or work, Industry yields a far greater return than the immediate gain would Indicate, The enjoyment of lite, the development of one's abilities, the growth to the f vilest extent possible ^- all these come only 'from honest endeavor, There is no short cut to these end* an4 they can, not be reached throwh the efforts of sonieone else. Most of us learned to rather enjoy the leisure which the depression brought us and will find it difficult to get back into full swing again. READER'S FORUM Men are never so likely to set' tie ft question rightly as When they discuss it freely.— Macauley. Readers are urged to keep their letters brief and to the point — both for our sake and the sake of our readers. Editor: I was interested and pleased with your short editorial, "The Outlaws." You see into the out- >reak at Le Mars in a way the most of the press either does not see or else seeing refuse to give be picture to the public. All ;ood citltens deplore the out* >reak but people ought to come o grips with the real situation. When a house burns down a ensible person considers the cause before he laws heavy blame n anyone. When a driver ot a car drives into an open culvert nd kills his family — the road man who left the open culvert without a light is under fire. In eality he is the one to blame or the death of the man and his amlly.

A number of contingents of th Bonus Army have arrived In Washington and are camped In various sections of the surround Ing country, go far the entire pic* ture has been very orderly. The boys come to the House Office Building now and then to see va rious Congressmen. A man from California and one from Maine ' were in our office a few days ago and I had an interesting conversation with them. Yesterday (Friday) the House considered and defeated a rule to call up the Slrovlch resolution to investigate the motion picture in dustry on the ground that invest ors have been swindled and in* Justices dealt out to the small theatre owners. The opposition did not attack the matter so much from the standpoint of the purpose involved as It did the form in which the resolution was drawn. It could have probably been written in such a manner that It would have passed. By the time this appears in print Congress will probably be hat this was "the fire trap la the house of the State," He issued a 'reclamation putting a stop to all oreclosures. What did the sher- ffs and the judges do? They com- iletely ignored the Governor. iVhat did the Governor do then? Where was the state militia? Was the only weak sister in Plymouth county? The state legislature met and among other laws passed two which in many ways were similar I refer to the Foreclosure Law and the Banking Law, Senate File 111. The Banking Law allows any banker in this state to meet his creditors at the door of his bank and say to them: "1 know I owe you money, you pul your money In this bank and I promised to pay you one hundre< cents on the dollar with interest But I am informing you this morning that CONDITIONS BE* considering some other important phases of the Roosevelt program. A proposal to coordinate the railroads and industry and public works bill are in the offing. A caucus of the majority party was held this week to consider some of the principles involved IB such proposals. The democratic members of Congress also attended another interesting meeting last Thursday evening presided over by James A. Farley. The Postmaster General discussed the matter of patronage very freely assuring the Congressmen that postofftce vacancies will be filled as soon as possible.

This, with measures to provide for a huge public works program, was announced Thursday night by Senate Administration leaders, Financing of the measure is expected to be brought about by some form of sales tax. This bill, when presented in Congress, will probably be the last of the Ad* ministration's legislative program for the special session. Landed by U. g. fanners and industrialists for his price raising policies, President Roosevelt drew fiery criticism from the European press when it was learned that an issue ot gold Treasury certificates would be paid in paper money. Claiming that this amounted to repudiation, foreign journalists challenged the right of America to any holier-than- thou attitude toward unpaid war debts. Although the V. 8. owes no foreign debt as such; the suspension of gold payments affected foreign holders of this government's securities, For the first time since the Kellogg-Briand peace pact was signed an open and acknowledged state of war existed last week following formal declaration ot war between Paraguay and Bolivia >have been battling unofficially for eleven months. • • * * * Mlto tteno, head of the Nation* al Farmers Holiday association and disgruntled with Admlnlstra* tioa relief measures, followed his organisation's resolution and declared the second national tarn strike effective Saturday. Friday the strike was postponed, awaiting benefits ot the farm bill. Com tinued rising prices led many farm belt observers to believe that the strike would draw little support. Nonetheless the dairy crisis in Wisconsin caused that state's governor to order all creameries closed. Elimination of the cause of riots was a possible reason. Out of the "war area" in western Iowa marched several hundred youthful members of the nt-' tlonal guard Thursday as a result of the declaration by Governor Herring of the end of martial law. Leaders of the Le Mars abduction and the Denlson sale riots were turned over to civil law authorities for trial OB charges of contempt of court and conspiracy, Tried before Judge Homer Fuller Tuesday, twenty-two ot the leaders were fined ISO and given sentences of one year in later suspended after one day ' QuickC A CONFERENCE The Xicjht Bilte here Father;
