a regent e id s< lection of a king is out
in a general order by Admiral
Hop'thy, head of thc new Hungarian
army, published in newspapers here.
The order was i.-sued as a result of
the extremist movement, which has
been advocating the substitution of the

Free Speeeh as
U. S. Institutioii
Tclls Zioni$ts Government
May Be Criticized in the
Extreme, but Urge* Dras?
tic Punisbment for 4Kcds*
Free speeech as an Ameriean institu
tion was upheld by Josephus Daniels,
Secretary of the Navy, in an address
last nij-ht at the dinner of the Zionist
Orcamzation of Ameriea at the Hotel
Secnetary Pani<*!s contended that h
man who carcs to criticize the govern?
ment may do so and bc ln extreme in
his criticism, but at the same time
cannot be allowed to advocate the over
throw oi ihe government by violence.
"Tho people of the twentieth contury
are tied x? no procrustcan bed," the
Secretary said. "The Constitution. in
its verv terms, is recopnition that 'we,
the people," have the right ;o amend
the Constitution and the method prc
ser-bed. Any man who thinks, for ex?
ample, that'the Senate ought to be
abolished has the right to say so and
to agitatc to that end. in the con?
fidence that if 'we, the people.' apreo
with his desire to abolish the upper
chamber there will bc no Senate.
"On Cnc- other hand, the man Who
undertakes to securc char.;-? in the con
stitutional government hy dynamite or
anarchy is a criminai and should he
dealt with under the nenal law. If he
is an alien. we have but one legal way
to deal with him. and that is to deport
him. We have '.earned how to huild
ships sir.ee 1914 ar.d can supply the
bottoms for criminal aliens. lf the
anarchist is a citizen there are jails
and penitentiaries Tor him."
Speaking of Zionism, Secretary
"Zionism does not mean n return of
all the Jews to Palestine. That wou'd
be a physical impossibility. Th" land
could not give them either sustcnance
or tiie play for their powers. There
are over three mililons in the T'nited
Slales. Many will return, bu! the
major portion will continue to iilus
?rate the genius of that irrea* rac*
while living* in other iands. The return
of thousands to Jerusalem will be of
tremendous importance historically and
ethnologicaliy and will establish a cen?
ter for Jewish culture, Jewish philoso?
phy ar.d Jewish roiisriou1- ideals.
"'We do not desire,' said a wise
leader of Zionism. 'Palestine for the
Jews as much as we desire Palestine
for God. We do not desire to estab?
lish the nation of the Jews so much
as we- desire to establish the kingdom
of God on earth.' And he added, 'This
wns the dream of our prophets.'
"We are living; in wonderrui days,
big with chan-je. May we not in our
day see the fulfillmep.t of this proph
ecy, and God's mercy will covr the
earth a? the waters cover the sea'.' The
begir.nini*: of the fulnllment is the c*
tublishment of the New University,
headed by President Wilson ar.d other
wor'id leaders, as an educational cen?
ter for the studying out by the best
brains in the world the momentous
questions that affect the nations of the
world and a 'House of Prayer for Ali
the Peoples,' where God will he hon
ored and God's plan for univers.nl jus?
tice will become the cornerstone of all
institutions founded among men."

before 2,500 white and negro citizens.
Dr. Garfield, in paying tribute to

"ft has often been said bv those who
knew him during hia college days and i
the days immcdiately following the
Civil War that General Armstrong.
powers of body and mind, his jovous I
' a'ure nnd high character opened wide
the door of opportunlty to him that!
he might easily have won richea and \
wordly advancement. After a talk with [
General Howard, Armstrong turned his!
back on fortuno and became tho suner- ;
ntendent of the Freedmen. Bureau.
He chose the joy of helping others to
realize themselves. Ho sought to ad-j
?-ancc labor from slavery to freedom. j
"Our beloved country," continued Dr.
Garfield. "will be God's country in very I
'.ruth only when our government pro- ,
vides equal opportunities. to ail and j
when we as individuals learn to make i
proper v:*r of the opportunities offered j
and to subordinate wages and profits !
to their proper p!ni-?s. It will not be I
God's country until we have oppn^d
the blind eyes of ignorance and have
flung wide the <loor of opportunity to

peace in terms of w;igps. n j., truo
that wages must be adjusted to the
rangp of prices. Men cannot live on
promises, and falling prices are still
? lv i* only promises.
"An honest day's work must be paid
fo rby an honest, just wage. But tho
demands now made by labor fbr in
I creased wages are unjust. They cover
too much. The nnskilled lab'orr'r is
entitled to reccivc cnough to maintain
himself in good health and working
condition. ln addition he should b<> \

"Not all can have the advantages of
Hampton. but all should be given the
opportunity to reeeive a schooling. The
common school of the several states are
open to all. but we must aiso provide
night vocational schools and eontinua
tion schoois and the guidance of work
'ngmen's* museum- and pubhc libraries
Moreover. the unskilled workers. and
the skilled as well, should be protected j
by insurance against accident. sickness, !
old age and unemployment. These ar"
the principal items m the program of
"I do not favor paternal government.
To avoid this and at the same time to
sccure to labor the needed protectio-,
the government should call to it-, aid
the chosen representatives of ali tho
parties in interest, seeking thpir advice
but rescrving to itself the power to act.
In dealing with the industrial probiem-*
of to-day. we may say that no group
of men is wise eno-jgh to determine the
