It is only the millionaire and contortionist these days that can make both ends meet. If some Yankee does not soon discover how the masses can live on doughnuts of liquified air, the Almighty will have to come to the rescue again with His manna from Heaven.” —C. C. Mitchell HISTORY, MOSTLY. - In the Democratic convention at San Francisco there were two administration candidates, Mr. McAdoo and Mr. Palmer. We find nothing wrong about that. The administration had a right to present these candidates and to urge the nomina tion of either of them. The ‘wets’ had the same right and so did Tammany or any other group of Democrats. The dele gates representing the Democrats of the country were, in the mam, the ablest Democrats of the United States. It was a fair ight in the convention, fought in accordance with the rules, there was no striking below the belt and at no time did it degenerate into a rough-and-tumble in which there was gouging and biting. The newspaper reports of the proceed ings showed that, as compared with other conventions, it was an orderly and a rather dignified affair. The convention praised Mr. Wilson and Ins administration in such ornate eulogies as are customary after men who have held high places, are dead. This w'as premature to be sure, but it wras consid erate and kind. The convention then proceeded to kill Mr. Wilson, politically we mean, with that deliberate care and thoroughness w'hich ' hould always char acterize the conduct of a public execu tion. Mr. Cox was nominated. This was a repudiation of Mr. Wilson, of his administration and of his henchmen from Mr. McAdoo down to Joe Tumulty. It was n no sense a repudiation of the tenets of the honest men in the Democrat ic party of whom there are many, but of the construction which had been put on those tenets. We presume these men believed that Mr. Cox was a Moses who would lead them out of the political Egypt in'which they had been wandering for many years. In this they were mis taken, for two reasons, the first being that the nomination of Mr. Cox did not cause the political death of Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson is still alive, very much alive. Moreover the nomination of Mr. Cox did not, in the slightest degree im pair his political vitality. He is today in as absolute control of the Democratic party as he lias been at any time during the last four years and this fact must be very depressing to those gentlemen who strove so nobly and so righteously to put him in cold storage. The second reason was that a few days after the convention Mr. Cox was afflicted bv an attack of cerebral vacuity in regard to all political matters. He did not know whether he favored the league of nations or whether he was opposed to it. Nowhere in his gray matter could he find a fragment of conviction as to what he thought of the league or about anv other matter of politi cal importance. Before sitting down to write his speech of acceptance he wanted to know what he thought about all these matters and to be able to state to the ! voters what he would do if elected to be President. He went to Washington and' Mr. Wilson furnished the empty cham- '■ bers of his visitor’s brain with thoughts, I taken from his own somewhat unique aggregation. Just what thoughts were transferred we do not know but after the goods had been delivered and Mr. Cox had departed he said:—“I am absolutely at one” with the President. “I will carry out any promises he has made.” That is all we need to know. Mr. Cox who was nominated by the men who were opposed to Mr. Wilson and his policies, the men who were strong enough to put Palmer first and then Mc Adoo out of the running, now find that ^ their nominee is not, like themselves, a stalwart, but is a mere rubber stamp, and that if he is elected we shall have a con tinuation of the Wilson policies. EQUAL SUFFRAGE The Tennessee House of Representa tives ratified the amendment in favor of equal suffrage August 19 by a vote of 50 for and 46 against it, the Senate having ratified it August 10 by a vote of 25 to 4. The Tennessee constitutional league which is opposed to equal suffrage is said to be taking steps to contest the legal right of the legislature to ratify, under the constitution of that State. There is a mere possibility that this movement may delay ratilication to the extent that women cannot vote this year, but equal suffrage is coming in the near future if it has not now won a complete triumph. The Southern States have been opposed to giving the ballot to women because they already have about all tne irrespon sible voters they can manage. We have no doubt the majority of the people of Tennessee are opposed to it, but the pres sure upon the legislature was too strong. It came from practically the whole North, i from the Atlantic to the Pacific by Re publicans and Democrats alike. Maine’s i illiterate vote is so small thatshe has j nothing to fear from illiterate or irre sponsible voters. On the contrary the , women of Maine at the polls will add much to our moral strength as a State. When our women realize the power for good which suffrage has placed in their hands they will go to the voting precincts end use it. She will stand strong for the right and she will use her conscience when she is searching for the right whether the knowledge which she seeks is in the present or in the past. When we consider the civilized human race as a whole we believe women love right better and abhor evil more than men do. We believe that after they have studied what we call politics they will rear children with higher ideals and more i righteous political feelings. Assuming, as seems probable, that the women are to vote in September, it is necessary that they should register as voters. Except in Belfast, those who desire to vote in Waldo county can register on election day at the voting precinct in the town where they have a legal voting residence. In Belfast registration should be made during certain days of the week prior to election. Notice will be given in the Journal of the dales. A little more than 7,500,000,000 pounds of sugar were imported into the United States in the year ending June 30, 1920, and a little more than 2,000,000,000 pounds were produced in this country during the above period, a total of 9,500,000,000 pounds, 90 pounds for every man, woman and child in the United States. How many pounds did you get? What did you pay for it? In view of these figures which are official, do you see any good reason why sugar should be scarce in this country and why you cannot get your share of it unless you pay more than twice ten cents a pound for it? One of the leading Democrats of this : country, and a very good man he is, too, has risen to inquire: “Where do you , stand, Senator Harding? Are you with ! Taft or are you with Johnson? Some ! Democratic mentalities are deplorably | obtuse. Even the children of this coun : try know that Senator Harding stands | for America first, and almost all the grown-ups know that Senator Harding does not stand with Taft or with John son. It’s the other way round. Taft and Johnson stand with Harding. It has been proclaimed that the De part ment of Justice contemplates taking measures to prevent advances in prices in excess of their fair proportion to the i freight rate increases. The Department of Justice is strong on contemplation. It has done a great deal of it during the last four years. We have criticised this de partment sometimes, but we are willing to admit that, as a contemplationist, its , record has been notably good. At this writing the battle rages around Warsaw, the capital of Poland. The League of Nations is but a voice in the air, the hot air of Washington and the foggy air of London.
