"Our country is too large for such a system, whether it be socialistic or the. contrary. It tas too large and too widely-scattered a population, made up of too many different elements. They have too many divergent Interests of all sorts; too many conflicting prejudices. What works well here will not work well there. What one section demands, another section repudiates." * * * tfTHE history of all far-flung na- i tions," went on the senator, "has been the same--first, a great measure of home rule, by communi- ies; then a gradual process of cerv- ralization; presently the complete disappearance of the original subdivisions, except as geographical ex- reaaions; the upsot, a steadily in- :rea3ingly topheavy government; finally its overthrow; disintegration. 'Our progressive friends' intentions are excellent, but I am convinced they are doing their utmost to lead us along the path I have suggested. "Moreover, I think they will succeed in leading us to the destination I also have suggested." * * * E VEN as Senator King is a liberal democrat, Senator Arthur Capper of Kansas is a liberal republican and I wanted a liberal republican's estimate of the progressives' pro gram, as well aa a liberal demo crat'3;' ·.;.- · · · ' · · · " A progressive's estimate of It naturally is biased; he considers it perfect. An ultra-conservative's is equally biased; he considers it perfectly awful. Those two liberals, Senators King and Capper, a democrat and a republican, I felt, might fairly be expected to be impartial. Senator Capper, in fact, refers to himself as a progressive. However, the progressives did not invite him to their recent conference in Washington, or Senator King, either. Both expressed a trifle of surprise at being- omitted. * * * A NYWAY, "Senator King seems to ·ft- me absolutely correct," said Senator Capper, "in classifying progressivism as essentially republican. "For myself, I am in warm sympathy with it, tho a few of the measures described as progressive have seemed to me impractical for the present. There has been, too, a modicum of pure politics hTsome of certain progressives' activities. That is to say, they opposed the white house, as it appeared to me, simply on general principles. As a republican, I have supported the administration except when I had definite reasons to the contrary. "As to the power issue, and notably Muscle Shoals, I am entirely in agreement with the progressive attitude. I am fully in accord with it in its demand for the curbing of monopolies, which I consider a grave danger. In matter of unemployment and farm relief I concur with it. "In short, I'm a progressive and assuredly not a socialist, which sufficiently answers the query--do I consider progressivism's trend socialistic ? "It is, undoubtedly, enlightened republicanism." | Bulb Explosion Hurts Irvington Man's Eyes IKVINGTON, March 18.--George I Stewart suffered injuries to both eyes when an electric bulb which he was screwing into a socket exploded.
