Maybe the lawyert are rijsbt.l But wc cannot help observing iwb^t a hodge-podge of contradicr tiona thiaj beer taOl is ii^ jrespect to the Question vbetbbr 4 p^r cent beer i!i or Is not intoxicating. fbrjexainple, the bOl ic postulated fundrnnentally ufxm the preposition, that 4; peri cent beer is not intoxicating, And yet this Mil Imposes a fee of tl.OOO a year as o license tax upon brewcrloB manufneturinB beer, re- qutreit wholesaler^ to pay $50 and rptnilcrs t9A a year for the privilege of selling it. forbids its manulaetttre or sal(| in the District of, Columbia, levies a tax of IS.0O a barrel upon it. and ref enacts the Webb-Kenyon law rbiddlngj Interstate riilpment of beer Into a prohibition state by any method. II 4 per cent beer is intoxicating then the manufacture and sale of it plainly violates the Constitution. If it is not intoxicating why lay all these burdiens up<Ki it that are not laid upon Coco Cola or any other non-intoxicating beverage? PEOPLE TRUiST OUR BANKS The response of the; public to the reopening of the lola banks yesterday following the banking holiday wa.s in no way surprising but was none the less gratiJfylng. The people who do business with the lola banks have never had any uneasiness about them. They have known always that they were conservatively managed by honest men and l ^they trusted them. Prior to the holiday there had been no run upon these banka. and so when they were reopened there was no flood of deposits as would^ have been tlie case if there had been any hoarding •nmong vholr cystomers. But there wa .H brought Into the .banks what normally might have been expected, the accumulation of money and cht'ck.s, merchants and others had been hpldlng during the ten days when deposits were riot accepted. And Uie withdrawals were normal, too. Bankers in a small community know their customers so well that they could Instantly detect any disposition to draw out money for the purpose of hoarding. Our bankers report that there was no sign of iliis. that all the checks presented lor payment were such as were to be expected in the ordinary run of business. So Ida and Allen county have re- tm-ned to "normalcy" so far as the banking situation is concerned. So indeed have Kansas and the United States so far tls can be fudged from tlie reports that come from all quarters. The strong banks have demonstrated their strength, the weak banks have either closed or been reorganized, and hoarding has been definitely ended. There Is no reason now why the banks should not function as banks are intended to function, not as strong boxes'In which to liold money, but as fiscal agents, to use the money of a community in promoting the business enterprises of i\ community. But laying aside these obvious bi- consistenc^ and assuming that the law will pass the scrutiny of the Supreme Court and that we are to have teer | again, sold openly aad freely in the wet states, peddled by boot leggers in the dry states, perhaps there! is some consolation to the drys in the thought that hisbcRy will repeat itself. The liquor traffic'did more than all the tern lerance societies to bring prohibition in the first {dace. In the old pre^Volstead days every saloon was a moral plague spot, in, the community in which it was located. It was the rendezvous for gangsters and crimin ils of all types. It was a breeding place for crooked politics: It never would obey any law for its" own regulation and control that it could by hook or crook evade. So the people grew weary of the whole miserable business and kicked it out of existence when they got the chance. Now the, traffic is coming back again, and j it will make the same mistakes. Those who expect to ent gage m it have convinced themselves that the people are with them", that they are tired of prohibition and wnnl the saloon back. So back It is coming, and with it will come all its old faults and evils and deep offenses. And the people will tire of them as they did before, only more quickly than they did before because thejr have not been used to them. It may well be that the surest way to defeat the effort to repeal the 18th aniendment is that which has, been chosen by the President and the Congress,—by giving the people a little foretaste of what the legalized liquor traffic means. THE VALUE OF CREDIT There are ho times like hard times to teach men the value of a good name. All over the country during these past !two weeks mUllons of people have been able to live, as usual although they hadn't a dollar in their pocket, because they had kept their (jredit good. Old Walt Mason took note of a situation like this twenty-two years ago when lie wrote this little jingle, which fits today as if it had been made for It. "The finest thing man can have is credit at the store; it is a balsam TUE BEER BIjLL Nobody who voted for jFranklln D. Roosevelt has any right to complain because he has sent a special mift- Biige to Congress asking the Immedl- ftto passage j of a law to legnlizc the mftnufncttiie and sale of,standard beer, with ah alcoholic content of 4 per cent In volume. He ran on a platform demanding it and he personally declared his emphatic approval of that specific plank long in advance of the election, so he has only done what he promised to do, and nobody jwho voted f^jr him has a right to complain. The House of Representatives already has acted on his recommendation and doubtless the Senate will do so as soon as it gets around to it. The law will go into effect within fifteen days after its enactment; Soi thanks to last November's great Democratic victory, we are in sight of "real beer." The Register has been of the opinion that this legislation would last only until a case could get before the Supreme Court, believing that tribunal would then set the law aside as violating the Constitution an the score that 4 per cent beer is intoxicating. But perhaps we are mistaken. Some very able lawyers maintain that the Supreme Court will hold that the Congress is the sole judge of what is arid xrtiat is not an Iptoxicating beverage, and therefore that if it declares that 4 per cent beer shall not be deemed intoxiCatirig .within the meaning of. the 18th amendment that will set- and a salve j for every mortal sore. The customer who pays his debts when due, has shining fame; 'he is the best Of aU good bete," the merchants all exclaim. And when misfortune dogs his heels, as It will visit men, and hq is shy of plunks and wheels, of kopecks, dmigh and yen, the merchanjts say, 'Buy what you will, and we will gladly wait, till you are fixdd to pay the bin— we know that ym are straight.* The man who doesn't promptly pay merchants whati he owes, on the appointed settling day, all kinds of trouble kno«|8. And when ndsfor- tune takes his trail, and hands him sundry knocks, and he is shy of dust and kale,, of rhino, scads and ronks, the mirchants say, 'We cannot sell to gjents like you on time, tor wheri you 're prospering quite well, youl won't cough up a dime.' Poor credit oil yom- virtues queers, and glvqs a iiunk renown, and, though you live a hundred years, you'll ncVer Ifve it down." OUR liuGE IMONEY 8UPPL Y The laljest report from the U. S. Treasury j shows tliat the coimtry now has |5,S26,000,000 in hard money (gold, silver and riiinor coin), and $4,168,000,000 in paper money (V. S. notes, national bank notes, reserve banknotes and Federal Reserve notes)'a grand total of $9,694,000,000. This is more money than the United States ever had before. It is nearly twice as riiuch as we had during the boom times of 1929. The gold coin and bull|on ! ($4^553.000,000) is a quarter of a billion more than we had in 19^9. In 1913, Which we think of now as {^normal year in the matter of commodity prices,-including farm products arid live stock, we had only $3,777,000,000 in currency, about two blUloos of which was gold. In the iface^ of these figures how can it possibly be contended that commodity prices depend upon the amount oi money In the country? BBISBANE APPLAUDS KANSAS Arthur Brisbane: This paragraph is written following a trip through Kansas, and Mr. Nichols, editor of Senator Capper's "Kansas Farmer" would like you to know how great a. state Kansas really is. In the first place about 58 per cent of Kansas farms have no mortgage "even now." This, Mr. Nichols attributes largely to diversified farming. Kansas being, first in winter wheat, second in cattle, per farm, second in number of tractors, 66575 of them, third in poultry; fourth in twenty-two chief crops, fifth in dairy cows, sixth hi horses, with more than foui- per farm, and so on through the list. It Is amazing and encouraging to find Kansas farmers not discouraged even after eggs sold for less than 11 cents a dozen last June, In t 50 YEARS AGO t <• Editorial and News Items from 4> <• the loU Beglstcr of •» <• March 16, 1883. ^ •> . ^ Texas they sold for even less. The Kansas senate has passed the committee bill which wIU limit inmates of the' Kansas State soldiers home in the future to. soldiers and their widows. "This is a move in the right direction and while it is not as comprehensive or drastic change as Investigation warranted. It will be of some help in preventing unnecessary extravagance with regard to public funds or the payment of public moneys for support ol those not entitled to it. A Washington dispatch reports that a rebate in taxes has been granted the estate of William. Dupont to the amount of something over $6,000,000. Following the logic of Democratic newspapers during late campaign it would have to be said that this handsome refund is granted because the Duponts contributed genffl-ously to the Democratic campaign fund! A Kansas City, Kansas, youth, 21 years old, set an elevator on fire in the hope that he would get a Job when it was rebuilt. The fire caused an explosion which killed two firemen and injured 10 other people. Now the youth has been sentenced to the penitentiary for life. Another instance of the unspeakable folly of crime.

Josh sutler is building a new bouse on his premises which will be occupied by the faipily of his broUier-in-law, Mr. Valentine, who recently came from Ohio. The wedding of R. h. ^ankins and Miss Hattie Purdem, on Wednesday evening of last week, was an occasion that will not soon be forgotten. The richly furnished table and; the grand social enjoyment of the evening are features that will remain with pleasant remembranc;! in the minds of the many that wen; present for some time to CMne. The nev/ly married couple left first of the week for their home In Illinois. We proffer our best wishes' tor their future happiness and success. The skatlne rink has changed hands, A.

In the early part of 1781 General Greene did not have sufficient force to risk a battle with Comwallis, and retreated across North Carolina un til he reached Guilford Court- House. Having his army doubled by the addition of militia recruits, he stood for battle here on March 15 His raw militia however, could not ptand before the British regulars, and Greene withdrew from the field; but the "victorious but ruined amiy'-of Comwallis retreated to the coast and Greene soon recovered most of the south.

RADIO AND NEWSPAPERS Emporia Gazette: What if the newspapers wer/ closed up like banks? You say there is the radio. : Yes, but you hear the radio and it leaves no record. A hundred different voices are calling on the radio .saying different things. Rumors may-ride on the radio unchecked and what you read on the radio la not important until it has been verified by the newspapers. Radio newa is undependable because first, the hearer may not remember it exactly; or second, if he remembers it exactly it has no authority behind it as a newspaper' has through its press association. If' the newspapei^ v .ere closed In a week the radio would have sowed such a crop of rumors and the memory of man would have distorted the reports so fearfully that the iwhole country would be a seething mass of vTrlggling serpentine rumors of malice,- error and delusion. The radio as a supplement of the newspaper is good. Of course the radio precedes the newspaper often by hours, but radio is never a substitute fOr a newspaper any more than a first-aid dressing is a- substitute for a square meal. Brodhead, Ky.—An 80-year-old woman rode ten miles on horseback bringing $200 to the.Citizens bank of Brodhead.
