.1 tiilui II, Ames, Oklahoma's near cabinet
member. Is recolvInK biH medn of attention from
tho editors of the country for a speech delivered
In Oklahoma City a tlmo buck. I,eslie's
Weekly ipioles the Oklahoma limn as soylnK'
"Oruanlr.ed enplliil Is a urcater menaie to

In falrnisH to Jtldttn Ames let It lie said that
In the local reports of his speech ut Ihn time
no such statement nppoured. 1 1 in neither has
:he Kentleinan corrected the oft-repeated state
ment tlmt he used such words. Nor tho addi
tional statement attributed lo him: "Uibor Is
ritfhtlnK for what It believes to be rlnht, wlilln
capital Is fighting for power."
It Is difficult tu treat suah absurdly false
statements with dignity. Tb.it difficulty Is all
the Krenter when comlnK from a man of Judtje
Ames" well-known standlm; and practice. It
Is Impossible lo even account for ('harles II.
Amos tuldni: this position without attributing
base motives. Which H tantamount to sayinx
that Aiiich tho cltlxcn does not bel'eve it word
Unit Is here ulteieil by Ames, the assistant to
tho United HtatiH attorney general In Wood
row Wilson's cabinet with a prospect of pro
motion to a cabinet position. And that does
the reputation of Charles II. Ames ifi Oklahoma
If the assistant to tho attorney general really
believes Hint "IiiIhh- Is flKhtini; for what It be
lieves to be right white capital Is only fighting
for power," then he Is probably lb" iwo well
Inforimul man In thn United States who doen
believe that. And ' ho forms his opinion, too,
In direct defiance of the established facts.
Wo hold no brief for Mlbert (iary or tho steel

Htrlko ptoves beyond even question that Clary

And tho offensive camu from without and not

lie simply stood firm and withstood tho re
pealed nsHivtilts of tho ablest shock troops of tho
political leaders of nrganUod labor.
Does Judge Ames mo.tn to s.ty to the country
that In this Inslanco labor was the noblo de
fender of Its rights, nnd Oary the ngfrressor.
seeklnir power? Suoh a proposition Is absurd
Or Is the Oklahoma gentleman ono of those who
asset t that capital Is always wroni; and labor
It has been charged front almost every
vantage point Hint labor, for several months,
bus peen engaged in an attempt lo wrest politi
cal authority from government and Industrial
domination from employers. And In not a few
Instances union ttimi themselves have admitted
tint i. and are now demanding that this clement
of labor bo effectively snuelched.
Judge Ames, nt Indianapolis, commanded the
respect of tho nation. Ills public utterances In
challenging tho defiance of thii political leaders
of union labor In the coal strike were ad
mirable. Hut his Oklahoma City utteranco se
riously Indicted his previous words nnd acts. If,
an a matter of fact, labor was fighting for Its
rights against so-called capital fighting for
powur, then Judge Ames was appearing In nn
unwuithy roust) when he (imxinvl labor and
necessarily espoused tho cause of capital In tho
coal stilke action,
Tho country understood that the coal capi
talists were asking for nothing but tho enforce
ment of law and the protection of their properly,
whllo tho labor leaders were defying not only
the law, but tho nuthorlrod ngrnis of govern

there must be enough people who have learned

I have found that there is one field, of which
