Today
Be Thankful.
No Harm in TNT.
No Fund for McAdoo.
3,000 Miles From Europe.
By ARTHl R BRISBANE.
(Copynrht. llll )
Be thankful that so far as
America is concerned the Peace
League is dead. It would have
kept this country at war and its
citizens under heavy taxation for
years. It would probably have
ended in a world war against
America.
Be thankful that your country
made its big experiment more
than a hundred years ago, went
th rough the fire successfully, and
is not burning up now, like Rus
sia.
Be thankful that you got into
the war late and got out of it
soon; you and your nation would
have been bankrupt had it been
oi"her*nse.
These small pieces of news il
lustrate on Thanksgiving morn
ing what a busy world it is. In
Paris they have found a substitute
for human biood, in cases of trans
fu_ou. It is made of sea salt and
gum arable. That means less ro
mance in the world, no more
heroes saying, "Take a quart of
my blood.'?
The Mexicans have shot one of
their ablest men. General Angeles,
for rebel lint*; against the Mexican
government. He deserved to be
pensioned, not shot Before he
died he told Mexicans they were
wrong in their idea that the
United States army .a small, con
temptible, not to be feared.
They wouid not believe Angeles
yeeterday. They may believe him
a little later.
They are looking for "Reds" in
whose Quarters were diMovered a
hundred bottles supposed to con
tain TNT, high explosire.
Many are uselessly alarmed for
their government when TNT is
mentioned.
No government was ever de
stroyed by explosives applied from
without. It is foolishness applied
from within that destroys govern
ments. Bear in mind the saying
of the w-.se Frenchman. "Mon
archi? are ?iestroyed by poverty,
Republics by wealth."" If thi?
Government s ever destroyed, ac
cumul?t e?: money, not TNT. will be
-re-rporisible.
? -~*i ~?- ?
W. G. McAdoo haa, broken the
first rule of "big ousir?ss." ??
has let the people know what profit
bi?? business makes.
If Mr McAdoo runs for Presi
den * in 19*20, along w?th the rest
of the crowd, and needs campai fr
eon tri butions, he will have to tret
them from those that burn coal,
not from miners that sell it.
As Secretary of the Treasury he
knew what coal gentlemen were
rr.akm? _ the way of profits, for
they had to telf in their income tax
reports. At least, they had to tell
part of it.
And McAdoo casually tells you
that some of those men who say
they cannot afford to increase the
wages of workmen turre makxng
a* high as two thousand per cent
, profit.
?
Everybody knows about the
gambler who said, when told that
he cheated. "I know it. but I don't
like to be told so."
Coal (rentlernen and other-? rob
bing the public know thev are rob
ben?, bat they don't like to be told
so They won't forgive McAdoo in
a hurry.
In the Pittjburgh district, aa
mentioned the other day steel
workmen lost more than twenty
six million dollars in wages in a
few weeks.
The Iren Age shows that the
steel companies have lost In re
duced production one hundred and
twrntv-alx million dollars in the
same time. Rather unpleasant
rea-ling at a time when the world
needs above all thing:; production,
snd production of iron especially.
Here is a text for clergymen:
Sergeant Nicholls of the Durham
Light Infantry, who is stone blind,
has lost both hands and two ribs
and has received ".-everal hundred

not surprising.

It is a 14 per cent increase, which
