League Opposition Not Political
Cry of "Wolf
We can admit the very great abil
ity of Woodrow Wilson without in
curring thereby any obligation to
accept him as a safe or even a stable
leader. It is known that upon most
of the issues that have come up dur
ing his administration the president
has revealed a somewhat amazing fa
cility in changing his mind. From
woman suffrage on down to keeping
us out of war the Wilsonian policy
has shown some astonishing reversals
of position. This being the case why
should we be any more ready to sub
scribe to the charm of his 7-hetoric in
the matter of entangling our affairs
with those of Europe than we have
found it possible to be upon matters
of vastly smaller moment? Pretty
phrases may fall like music upon the
car. They do not always penetrate
the intelligence nor do they infalli
bly engender conviction. It is all
very well to cry "politics, politics!"
every time the President meets with
opposition at the hands of congress
but does "politics" furnish the key to
the situation? Not all of the men
concerned in blocking the Wilson
league of nations idea may fairly be
classed among those actuated by po
litical considerations. In their num
ber are to be found men who class
high as "statesmen," men whose men
tal processes are far removed from
the ruts and wheels of party chi
canery. We may be sure that under
normal conditions these men would
much prefer to support rather than
antagonize their nation's executive.
That, facing the right of choice, these
men have elected to stand in bitter
and uncompromising opposition to the
presidential stand, goes to prove that
all is not well. It will not avail
as matters now stand to take refuge
in the old familiar cry of "politics."
Opposition to a league that will
bind us to entangling duties in alien
lands and one in which we shall have
but one vote to Great Britain's six
is not to be met with the wolf-cry of
WANT CENSUS ENUMERATORS
Census Supervisor Thos. A. Scott,
of Spokane, sends out a circular letter
from which the following extracts
are taken. He urges, in the interest
of public good, the hearty coopera
tion of the people, to the end that we
may have as near as possible a cor
rect return. He says:
"The 1920 census will be taken
thruout the United States, beginning
January 2nd next. The law provides
that enumeration must be completed
within thirty days. It is desired to
obtain enumerators who live within
the enumeration district in which he
or she performs the work.
"I am short of applicants from Oka
nogan, Chelan, Douglas and Lincoln
counties. I need a great many more
applications from capable, dependable
persons residing in those counties. I
also wish to have applications from
every precinct of each county in order
that enumerators when chosen will be
well distributed in residence.
"The director has informed me that
the compensation will be such that a
person of average industry will be
able to earn from $4 to $6 per day.
I have recommended to him that he
pay the maximum amount allowed
under the law, which is $6 per day,
where a person is employed by the
day. I have also recommended that
the maximum compensation be paid
where payment is per inhabitant and
per farm enumerated.
It is hoped that the people of each
county will take a sufficient pride in
the affairs of the government, and
particularly in the matter of the een
.sus, that they will be willing to offer
themselves for employment as enum
erators even tho they may feel that
the compensation allowed by congress
is not wholly adequate. I assume
that the people of a county would not
like to have it said that they were so
grasping on the one hand, or indif
ferent on the other, as to make it
necessary to nave st'an Kcrs sent 'n
to their community to perform this
particular governmental duty.
While the work does not actually
begin until January 2nd, it is neces
nT y for persons who desire to be
considered for such employment to
make applications at once. The time
for receiving applications has been ex
tended to November sth. The time
for taking the test has been extended
to November 14th or 15th.
The test consists of filling out a
sample schedule from a narrative of
three families ami of filling in an
swers on a farm schedule from
printed data furnished. Three hours
will be allowed for the test. Tests
will be held in Chelan county at Wo
r.atchee, Leavenworth and Chelan.
Kach person who sends in a formal
application will be furnished a card
admitting thim to the test. The card
will give hm the date, hour and place
where the test will be held.

A bachelor always pats his friend's
