PROHIBITION THE MAIN ISSUE
Prohibition will be a dominant issue in not fewer than
thirty States this fall, and results will be watched with
more than usual interest.
The wets contend they are certain of victory, while
the drys openly state that if no other force kills the hope
for "light wines and mild beers" it will die at the hands of
the bootleggers who ate making too much money under
their present system to permit the traffic to become
New York and New Jersey are all "het up" over the
issue, which also will be paramount in all of the New Eng
land States, and in Missouri. Pennsylvania will face the
question, as will Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia,
Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, Ohio, Wiscon
sin, Washington, Nebraska, Michigan, California, Oregon,
Utah, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida.
'Pennsylvania wets pretend to believe they are sure of
victory, but the recent sweep of the Progressive Pinchot
points the other way.
It would be difficult to predict the outcome in many of
the States, but it is to be hoped that whatever be the ver
dict it will result in an obedience to law.
A decided dry victory will most emphatically express
the will of the people, and unless the bedrock of American
government is to be dynamited the sooner the expressed
will of the people is obeyed the better.
And it will not hurt if Uncle Sam himself leads the
way on the one or two of the seven seas he is now manag
ing to navigate.
THE COST OF PUBLIC L ATHY
Though the people of America are one hundred per
cent opposed to any more taxation and are heartily sick
of the burdens that have been placed on them, they fail
utterly to make their feelings known with sufficient vigor
to cause their representatives in Congress to take notice.
Every man dodges the issue by saying to himself
"What's the use of my saying anything." As Mark Twain
said of the weather: "Everybody growls but nobody does
Best authorities agree that additional Federal taxa
tion this year.is unescapable. National receipts will be
less than figured on and expenditures more. President
Harding has announced an unbridged span of $697,000,000,
and if Great Britain fails to pay interest on money lent her
here during the war the deficit will be $900,000,000.
Against this ma ybe deducted $272,000,000 of the balance
in the Treasury at the close of the fiscal year, and this
spells additional taxation.
The farming interests are flatly opposed to a sales tax,
the business interests shriek at the thought of screwing
up the corporation taxes, which undoubtedly would prove
a final blow to a business revival. There remains then
the income tax, now outrageously high, but st;.-ding out
as "the best bet of the p.oliticians."
If the public remains ap~athetic, as is its custom, then
there will be no justification for complaint wvhen the new
burden is added.
It is questionable if any country in the world is as
unscientilc in its taxation as the United States. This is
b)ecahse the people refuse to take an interest in what is be
ing done in their name.

nations destined to bloodshed and
suffering to maintaih and develop
their entity, old nations embittered
to battle for their reincarnation.
Of Germany a review indicates a
bankrupt nation, but one getting back
on its feet. Financial ruin has lit
tle meaning. So lon gas the world
will accept German paper money at
some price, so long will the printing
presses turn it out.
It is difficult to get a proper per
spective of Germany. Henri Lich
tenberger, professor of the University
of Paris, in A twelve day visit to
Berlin a few weeks ago, dug out some
very interesting facts.
Growth of National Party Shows
Trend of Thought
Lichtenberger points out that the
German National party has succeed
ed the old Conservative party. This
includes the aristocrats, the proprie
tors of large estates and high olficials
of the old regime. The officials who
have lost their positions and who are
living from hand to mouth supply the
party with force, are always ready
for action, are energetic, eager for
battle and even anxious for a fight.
The university people, both faci
ulty and students, fed on the tradi
tion of a policy of force, feel keenly
the humiliation of defeat, and have
ranged themselves solidly behind the
idea of a restoration of the German
military power. The peasants form
the mass of the party.
The leaders have capitalized cer
tain elemental mental conditions
for the purpose of building strength,
and organization. They exploit the
bitterness of the former privileged
classes, ti,,; play upon the resent
ment of the disbanded army, they
wa.v: the fear slag of Bolshevism,
and excite the anti-Semite passion
and ti:2 profor~nd misery caused by
the attitude of France toward the
conquered. Hence they have linked
to a common cause the fanatics, the
discontented, and the lovers of mili
The German newspapers, particu
larly the Deutsche Tageszeitung,
aid in driving the masses to despair.
They infuse them with the convic
tion that they have nothing more to
lose, no matter what happens.
Even before the bloo dhas coagu
lated in the German wounds, there
has been established an almost uni
versal determination to reconquer
the lost provinces, particularly up
per Silesia and even Alsace-Lor
raine. The old German Imperial
ism is far from dead.
Socialists Want Peace But Peoples
As against this attitude of the
National party there battle the
Democratic .Socialists and idealists
who want to purge the country of
revenge, and who diream of a last
ing peace in wvhic'h the nations
shall lie down together, the lions
becoming lambs. Plus this is found
the Peopjle's party, composed of
many captains of industry, bold and
resolute men who have financedl
Germany in the war and since the
wvar, men wvho are making huge
profits from the revival of industry
andl who are doing the best they

make. While the Nationalists wvould
