POLITICIANS WHO CAPITALIZE
8TRIFE A MENACE TO
Neglect of Agricultural and Industrial
Opportunities a National Crime.
By Peter Radford.
There never was a time in the his
tory of this nation when we needed
statesmen more or agitators less than
at the present moment. Tbe oppor
tunities now afforded us on land and
sea demand the best there Is in state
craft and the possibilities that are con
fronting us call for national issues
that unite the people, build industry
and expand trade. Tbe agricultural
and industrial development of this
nation has suffered severely at tbe
hands of agitators who have sent
torpedoes crashing into the port side
of business and whose neglect of the
Interests of the farmer makes them
little less than political criminals. We
want no more of these evil spirits to
predominate in government. Too long
their hysterical cry has sent a shiver
down the spinal column of industry.
Too long have the ' political agitators
capitalized strife, pillaged progress
and murdered opportunity. An indus
trial corpse is not a desirable thing.
a crippled business an achievement or
neglect an accomplishment about
which any representative of the gov
ernment bas a right to boast. -
Issues that Breed Agitators Should be
The political agitator must be elim
inated from public life before thought
ful consideration can be given to a
constructive program In government.
The liquor question is the most pro
lific breeding ground for agitators and
whether pro or anti, the hatch is
equally as undesirable. This article
is In no sense a discussion of the li
quor question but deals solely and by
way of Illustration with the political
products of that issue. Other sub
jects will be dealt with in the order
of their importance.
In the history of our government
the liquor Issue has never produced
a constructive statesman worth men
tioning and it never will. It has sent
more freaks to Congress, Lilliputians
to the Senate and Incompetents to
office than any other political issue
under the sun.
The recent experience of the Eng
lish Parliament which lashed itself
into a fury over the liquor question
has -a lesson that It Is well for tbe
farmers of this nation to observe; for
the subject in some form or other is
constantly before the public for solu
tion and ofttimes to the exclusion of
more important problems to the Amer
Too Many Political Drunkards.
Lloyd-George, the Prohibition leader
of Europe who led the prohibition fight
in England, has declared that he will
never again take a drink politically
and there are many American politi
cians pro and anti who would render
their country a service by climbing
on the water wagon or signing a pledge
of political temperance. . Too often
our legislative halls are turned into
political bar-rooms and many of the
members become intoxicated on liquor
discussions. We have too many polit
ical drunkards pro and anti In our
public affairs. No one who is a slave
to the political liquor habit is quite
so capable of dealing with the busi
ness affairs of government - as the
sober and industrious. We have few
public men in this day who are strong
enough to resist the temptation of
strong drink politically and when the
demon Rum once becomes firmly en
trenched in the mind of a politician,
he is less capable of meeting tbe de
mands for constructive statesmanship
now confronting this nation.
We have in this country too many
red-nosed politicians both pro and
anti. A candidate with political deli
rium tremens, a preacher with politi
cal snakes in his boots and an agitator
drunk on the liquor question are the
saddest sights in civilization and they
should all be forced to take the polit
ical Keeley Cure.
It Is far more important In govern
ment to make it easier for those who
toll to eat than to make It more dif
ficult for a few topers to drink. There
la not one person in one hundred of
our rural population that ever touches
liquor but we all eat three times a
dy. ......... -: .

The majority of people who tise
the telephone are in a hurry. They
want to communicate quickly with
some one and the slightest delay
is likely to cause impatience and

the operator when he is using the
telephone in haste, these seconds
seem like minutes. If he is told
that the line is busy it is likely to
exasperate him. If telephone
users could see the operators at
