The Advertiser is not a crank about
fast driving on the highways. We
see no objection to fast driving on an
open roadway with nobody-to meet or
pass and no houses 'fit vigv. Fast
drivers, however, should sld up
when passing people on the roads and
when passing holises alongside. Chil
dren and grown people as well, are
liable to Ste' out behind a building
at alny time and cause an accident that
.will he lona eiembered.
The strike is the order)1 of the day.
n'ury day's news brings out a new
one. liudustry of every kind is being
held up and the country is suffering
heratuse of them., Tle fundamental
cause of theim, as we see it, is the
scar(ecity of laborers in comparison
with the non-prodiucers. Boys and
girls have beeni brou ght till to believe
that education unfits them for ian
ual labor and a big proportion of the
population has quit it. The scarcity
of workers has created a shortage
which makes the strike easy to put
across. There are no others to take
the strikers' places. The country
needs more workers and fewer sales
'With tile "old guard" in full control
of the Republican party and a nominee
in close sympathy with the vested iin
terests, the Democrats have a great
opportunity to win out in the com
ing election on a safe and sane plat
form of Americanization and a candi
date whose sympathies are witli tile
whole people rather than any clrque or)
organization. The Democratic party

outstanding issues at present. Senti
