BIG PACKER CLOSED
New York.—Uncle Sam has done
many unexpected things since last
April, when war was declared to exist
Among the unexpected happenings
are conscription, control of railroads
and price regulation.
Almost equally as unexpected is the
closing up for 30 days of Swift &
company's egg stores in this city be
cause the food administration's price
for selling eggs was not obeyed by
the Chicago packers.
Truly, these are dark days for those
who talked about "the right to run
their own business."
A dozen branches of the packing
firm is affected. As an additional
penalty the company must present
the Red Cross with Liberty Bonds to
the value of $3,000, which is the
amount of the offending transaction.
This notice has been posted on the
company's premises by the govern
"Swift & company, by order of the
United States food administration, is
hereby forbidden to buy, sell or other
wise deal in eggs in the city of New
York from April 10 to May 10."

protest from any railroad official be
cause of order No. 8, which prohibits
trade union discrimination.
"I feel," says Mr. McAdoo, "that it
is most important in this new era of
railroading in America that railroad
officials and railroad employes shall
not live any longer in an atmosphere
of suspicion and distrust.
"I need not tell you how deeply I
appreciate the assurances of loyalty
and patriotic swpport I have been re
ceiving from railroad employes con
nected with all kinds of railroad work
since the government took possession
and control of the railroads."
The A. F. of L. railway employes'
department had been informed that
managers had protested against .the
issuance of order No. 8. Officers of
the department suggested to' their
membership to notify the railroad di
rector that they were behind him.

Always to the fore in movements tending to bring the people
and their government ever closer, the citizens of the Buckeye State
are to be congratulated upon their rallying to the defense of their
right to governtheniselves in such internal affairs as to the shaping
and directing of which they have given abundant proof of their
capability. The movement inaugurated by the Ohio Home Rule
Association, so to amend the state constitution as to permit the
voters, by referendum, to have the Final Say-So upon proposed
amendments to the Federal Constitution, is most timely.
In states which have recognized the right of the people, #ie
source of all rightful authority, to a more direct part in the mak
ing of the laws under which they live, the people need to be awake
lest that right, in gi-eater or lesser degree, go by default.
It can not too emphatically be stated that the measure of self
government enjoyed by the people of any state is determined not
so much by the provisions of its own constitution as by those of
the national constitution. Which is plain from the fact that a
state constitution must conform to the general constitution the
states having only such rights as they, collectively, reserve to
The Federal amendment now before the states would, if rati
fied, regulate the daily habits of all the people, making no distinc
tion between those who are temperate and those who are not.
Ratified by a majority of the states— not necessarily a ma
jority of the people—the long hand of the law would thrust itself
into every man's pocket, bag or home, and, finding so much as a
gill of alcoholic drink, hale "him into court and brand him a criminal.
If the nation is to weave into the fabric of its organic law this
amendment, every consideration for future peace and good will
as between the states dictates that a step so radical should not be
taken without the express consent of the people of each state. If,
as the Congress has prescribed, this most radical step is to be
taken by the legislature (36 would be sufficient), without a man
date from their electorates, this will mean that a mere handful
of lawmakers, clothed with brief authority, shall be free to im
pose upon the people of the United States, for virtually all the
years to come, a law so inflexible as never to conform to condi
tions as these might change from time to time.
However dismally Nation-wide Prohibition might have failed,
this Federal amendment could not, once it had been written into it,
be w.ritten out of the constitution, if but so few as thirteen states,
wrong-headed, lacking candor to acknowledge their original error,
were to refuse to vote for its elimination.
The tail would wag the dog, and the dog would have to put
up with it.
Conceded that several amendments have been added to the
Federal Constitution by action of the legislatures, but not until
now has an amendment been purposed to restrict human liberty
always has the purpose been to enlarge human liberty. And not
even if the argument for Prohibition were generally accepted,
could its exponents justify the writing of it into the basic law of
the country upon grounds of necessity. Any state desiring to make
itself dry as a desert can now so make itself, and the statutes of the
United States will protect it in the exercise of that right.
Workingmen, back up the Home Rule Association! Assist in
every lawful manner in the great work for democracy it has under
taken. The experience you gained in lighting for the Initiative and
Referendum should serve you well now, when by it alone, broad
ened in scope and application, may you hope to be heard in the
shaping of the fundamental laws of your country.
