New York.—Business men in this
city are urging arbitration as a sub
stitute for law suits, as provided by
a state law passed four years ago
In a full-page advertisement published
in the local press the business men
appeal to their associates to settle dif
fe rences between themselves and to
cease becoming involved in costly le
"No need to tell you that the justice
we are getting in the legal determina
tion of our business controversies is
deadly slow that the courts are con
gested that the cost of litigation to
us in money and wasted time and pro
longed anxieties and other evils is al
most prohibitive," the business men
say. "You know all this. But all of
you do not know that the remedy is
in your own hands.
"It has been in your own hands for
four years—ever since the legislature
of this state in 1920 enacted the arbi
tration law. Probably not 10 per cent
"f our New York business men know
of this law, of the power it gives them
the practical benefits it puts with
in their easy reach.
"The fact is that under this law
business men can legally determine
their controversies without delay,
without the publicity of a court trial,
at a trifling cost, in a simple proceed
ing free from legal technicalities, and
before arbitrators selected by them
It is stated that the volume of busi
ness before the arbitration tribunal is
growing. The new arbitration law
meets the requirements of justice in a
vast majority of business controver
sies that hinge upon questions of fact.
"That is why the courts, right up
to the United States supreme court,
uphold the policy of arbitration," the

And now the people of the U. S. A.
nave been told the actual facts in the
matter. The country is now in the
hands of the communists. Harry
Daugherjty, deposed attorney general,
at Columbus, Ohio, stated that our
senators and representatives had fal
len for the "bushwa" of the bolshevist,
and rather than draw a salary for do
ing nothing, he resigned. His prede
cessor, who parted his name in the
middle, and quite likely parted his
hair, if he had any, the same way,
always held up the menace of the red
flag when he was accused of dere
liction in his duties. It is up to the
lawyers' union to produce something
other as attorney general who hollers
wolf, wolf, %olf when there is no
When we were in our youth we
VPalked over the same towpath that
james A. Garfield walked when he
guided the mules on the canal from
Buffalo to Weehawken, N. Y. We
found the scenery very beautiful, the
grass green, in season, and the pre
dominant political party trying to
make the people believe that the moon
really was made" of green cheese. To
day we find that the shrubbery is
green and the people wondering if cac
tus will really give good milk—from
There is one thing that you must
credit the apologist with in the rot
tenness that has been uncovered at
Washington by the investigation com
mittee. The specious plea of indem
nity insurance companies has always
held out to the employer that the in
demnity company would protect him,
never giving a thought as to the in
jured workman. The apologists at
Washington say they will protect the
government, but never stop to think of
the man who has his taxes or his
interest in public lands or oil, or water
rights, or forests, given away by the
men who will protect the government.
According to the reasoning of the
apologists: you and I are in the class
Laughable, were it in not quite so
portentious. Governor Pinchot, who
has lambasted and hamstrung the re
publican-prohibition enforcers at
Washington, was a receptive candi
date for delegate to nominate Cal
Coolidge. The word went down the
line that the lambasting was uncalled
for, and accordingly Governor Pin
chot will remain at home and nurse
a sore toe—the one stubbed when he
called the Daugherty regime lax in
the fanatical enforcement. Pinchot
is a whale of a fellow, but when he
tackles the whole republican machin
ery, he will find that it takes more
steam to carry on than it takes to
beat the late Boise Penrose. And yet
it is to laugh!
One of the "charity workers" ran
across a woman recently who scolded
against prohibition. "Are you in favor
of the old-time saloon coming back?"
asked the C. W. "No, I am not.
But with prohibition my husband is
unable to work. He fills up on moon
shine and there is nothing for me or
the children. If that is prohibition,
then I am in favor of the old way,
bad as it was."

Washington. The administration
received the hardest jolt since it came
in power when the senate voted for
full publicity of tax returns. "The
majority party attempted to placate
a popular demand for this publicity
by presenting a carefully drawn pro
vision in the Mellon bill that would
allow inspection of tax details only
by authorized congressional commit
tees. The senate rejected this pro
posal "and by a two-to-one vote de
clared for full publicity.'
By practically the same vote the
senate adopted another provision
which will give public access to all
claims for abatements or refunds of
income tax payments and the subse
quent decisions on such pleas.
Under the present law, nothing is
more sacredly guarded than income
tax returns and refunds of taxes.
The Matter is increasing by leaps and
bounds and now runs into the mil
lions of dollars on the work of treas
ury officials. The proceedings are con
sidered as a confidential matter be
tween treasury officials and the tax
This addition in the Mellon tax bill
brings anguish to the old guard.
Every effort will be made to recon

popular enlightenment on large in
