Basil Manly, one of two joint chairmen of the United States

New York, June 30.--'(By Mail.)
Nothing that has come out of the t
west for a very long time has brought c
more cheer and courage to a rather c
down-hearted and pessimistic east (
)ME. than the visit to the Pacific coast la
bor progressives who attended the
Atlantic City convention of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor.
It was like a breath of the Pacific
fog on a hot day or a wind off the l
snowy peaks and the high pines to
meet these men with their cheery
self-confidence and their knowledge
of just where they are going and
their refusal to be discouraged or
even seriously bothered by obstacles
that have plunged too many staunch
old fighters into gloom here in the
Citizens of democratic conviction
in New York and Washingtonr have
been entirely too prone to "sit and
hear each other moan" of late. The
only happy people have been social
ists like Art Young and Ellis Jones,
who are perfectly sure that the co
operative commonwealth is just
around the corner and who wonder
why everybody won't join with them
in celebrating the downfall of cap
t italism and oppression, which they
see going on before their eyes at a
rate which will bring us to their
goal on the day after tomorrow.
To understand the depression of
almost everyone else on our side of
ige the fence, it is only necessary to real
ize that never in living memory was
there such a demonstration and dis
organization of just plain democratic
Americans who are not socialists as
exists today in nearly every local
ity east of the Mississippi river. This
type of American clung to Wilson
leadership as long as he could, and
now at last he has dropped off only
to find himself standing in the road
badly shaken up and miles from
home, and no one in sight from whom
to ask the way.
At Washington the only politicians
now active who get any serious at
ud. tention are Senators Johnson and
Borah, and even they have raised no
issues that appeal whole-heartedly
to the people's good sense. For no
matter how unpolular is the Paris
conference and all its doings, the av
erage American knows perfectly well
that we can't give Europe the cold
shoulder and go back to our old isola
tion, and it is not whether we should
take our part in the world but what
that part should be that is agitating
to sensible men.
Meanwhile, domestic economic
problems are being neglected while
the anti-bolshevik craze rages una
bated, and for the future there is
nothing more pleasing in prospect
than the return to legislation, tlhe
strengthening of privilege, and a few
incidental developments like the in
vasion and occupaLion of Mexico,
which the speaker of the house re
gards as a republican policy that is
sture to be put into effect.
Liberals are not only doing noth
ing, but many of them have lost con
fldence in their ability to do any
thing, and 1men with a long record
of valiant fighting talk of going back
to the farm and letting the country
This is a true reflection of the cur
Srent mood of liberals in the east. It
is a jaundiced mood, and those who
suffer from it get nowhere.
Of course there are exceptions. The
weekly press is putting up a valiant
fight. The committee of forty-eight
is enthusiastic over the response to
its call for a conference of liberals at
St. Louis in the fall. The Pennsyl
vania State Federation of Labor is to
form a labor party and start a news
paper. No one has actually been sent
to jail recently for exercising the
right of free speech, and there has
been forthright speaking and big.
enthusiastic audicence at every big
rally to protest against allied imperi
alism'and American junkerism.
But all this ferment goes on
against the background of huge popu
lations that are or seem apathetic
and that further seem almost impos
tible to organize. Either because the
job is so hard or because the right
mien are lacking. Eastern liberalism
slpends its time in talking or writing.
