THE NEWBERRY CASE'AND THE SALE OF PUBLIC OFFICE Day la Coming When Effert9 te Buy a Nomination Will Mean the De feat of a Candidate IT MAY be nssumed that the Senate will act In accordance with the evidence when it votes en the right of Truman H. Newberry te his seat as a Senater from Michigan. Mr. Nenbery was convicted In Michigan of the iluirr if using money illegally In the primnrle-. The United States Supreme Court, however, reversed the conviction en (lie ground that the 1'edcral lnw limiting the ue of money in primary elections was Invalid, ns the prevision of the Constitu tion giving te each house of Congress power te "judge of the elections, qualifications nnd returns of Its own members" was net bread enough te cover the proceeding" In nominat ing conventions or primary elections. Thus Mr. Newberry was cleared of viola tion of the Federal law. life accusers, how ever, insist that he violated a State law. He has net been tried en this charge and no effort hns been made te try him. The Senate Committee en Elections, after a long inquiry, has reported that his elec tion was legal ; that is, the Republican members of the committee agreed that the charges against him had net been sustained. The Democratic minority Insisted that the charge that he violated the Stale laws had been sustained nnd that he wa net enlitled te his spur. 15ut the whole committee ng.-eed that Henry Ferd had net been elected. These reports were filed en September 20. They have been debated nl tutorials since that date and an nrrangement has been reached te lote en th" question next month. In the meantime tevcral Republican Sena tors belonging te the agricultural bloc are saying that unices Mr. Newberry shall ap pear in the Senate and defend himself they will vete with the Democrats against ac ceptance of the fnverable report. The offense of Mr. Newberrv is that large sums of money were spent te secure his nomination and election. The public fe net particularly Interested In knowing whether this was an offense again! the lnv or net. It Is an offense ngainst public opinion. 'Whatever political practices mnj have been tolerated in the past, the time is approaching when the man who Is known te he extravagantly lavish in his election expenditures' will be turned down. 1'ublic office should net be for Kile even when the purchase money is spent within the- four corners of the law. This was demonstrated last jenr when the presidential booms of (Jetieral Leenard Weed and CJoverner I.ewden ce!l.iped as seen as it was known thnl Sl.fiOrt.Oiift or thereabouts hpd been spent in behalf of each in an attempt te securp delegates fuernble te their nomination. It was net "barged that the money had been spent corruptly, but that it had been ueil te create favorable sentiment where it did net eit before. These nien might net have been iiomi iiemi nateil anjway, even if the expenditures in their behalf had been mere modest, lnit their nomination became impessih'e n.s semi 11s the amounts spent were published. The Instinct which turned these ien down was sn'ind. It was based en 11 solidly grounded determination thai the 1'nlted Stales shmibl net become a plutei-rnc , with its efiires open only te men who had the command of vast sums of money This Instinct ! especially active in the iltural Slntes and among the ni'-nbers ' c farmers' bloc in the Senate, who are 11'klng of etltig against Newberry Mew they will really (ete when the tune muiPK is net yet certain They are all geed enough nieric,ins le knew tha! it is dangerous te depart from the established custom of en forcing (lie law and of acquitting a mnn I against whom no violation of law lir.s been 1 established.

MUCKRAKING THE ARMY THUS far the record of thn Senate com mittee appointed nt the behest of Tem Watsen te leek Inte the continuing allega tions of amateur Prusslanlsm In the A. 13. V. hns been inconclusive and depressing. The air Is filled with rumen und the minds of u great many people hove been filled with misgivings, yel nothing in the testimony presented by witnesses justifies the Impres sion, which Sennter Watsen sought te create, that tyranny nnd brutality were neeepted things in the tinny eversena. In an army of hastily trained and newly commissioned military officers there had te be an occasional cur, an occasional brute, a sprinkling of chumps nnd infrequent manifestations of green egotism. And in the mass of a military force as large as ours there had te be a few skulkers and a feu- ethers no mere willing te respect, mili tary law than they were te respect the civil laws at home. Hut the record and achievements of the army in France, its freedom from rewdyism ami its extraordinary geed behavior under all conditions In a time of unexampled license and confusion must indicate te any one in Id senses that the enlisted nnd commissioned men were, as a rule, wonder fully sound in the aggregate. .If jeu were te assemble L'.IMlO.OOO chilinns in a community of their own in this country there would be far mere eidenccs of crime or criminal tendencies nineng them thnn the harshest critics of the army and its com mand have even suggested. Military laws are rigorous in times of war. They have te he rlgoreu?. And t he naturp and circumstances of the army's mission in France made it peculiarly de sirable that there be as few as possible of the abuses which usually occur in populated areas into which great nruilp pptiPtrate for one reason or another. That was the desire of the President and the commanding offi cers. It was te th- interest of the army nnd each soldier in its ranks thnl. this should be. It happened a a mailer of routine that a few men incapable of heurl'ig any consid erable responsibility were given ihe right te excrelsi great nutheritv. and doubtless there were soldiers here nnd tier" who suffered through ice stnpidltj, ignorance and de testable vanity of miner officers. There were, for ciniiiple, tlip I la-d- Hoped Smiths Hut they were exceptional i luiracters, and It is most unjust te nsn.icc that they vere in any nay typical of Auicrii au miny efli eers in generul. They were no me.-e like th'1 men in general command than the un disciplined and unwilling soldier was like the men whoce tine temper nnd brilliant lighting were matters of extraordinary pride te the whole country. What the Senate committee needs in de is te be explicit and te force Its witnesses le lie explicit. It ought te learn once for all whether the stones of official outrage that crop out new- and then are true or fllse. Doubtless some of them are true. Knewing this, it is the duty of the Scnnte te pxpese and punish guilty officer.

I 10 PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, HEOEMBEK AS ONE WOMAN SEES IT Why Are Net Certified Waists Made as Attractive as Yliese Uncertified. Seme Facts Concerning the Em ployment of Women Hy SAItAII O. I.OWRIE T WAS buying some silk shirtwaists for Christmas and I was puzzled at the dif ference in prices. Seme that were mere ex pensive were net pe attractive cither In de tdgn or color as these of a lesser price. The quality of 'the ellk seemed about the same. I asked the saleswoman about It and fehe said: "Oh. well, perhaps thetc expensive one are mere carefully made than the ethers." There wnw u faint something In her voice that arrested my attention for a second, and later in the tiny I temembered it nnd won dered vaguely what she had meant. It wat net until I looked ever the three wntst3 that I had chosen, after they en me home nnd examined thera attentively, that 1 under under Floed. 1 had bought one of the mero ex 'pensivu nnd Bllghtly less pretty waists and two of the very smart ones. The smart ones had no labels en them, but the mere ex pensive one had a small three-cornered one stating that: "This wnlnt has been made under proper conditions both in the work shop and as te hours of labor, wages,' e'e, or words te thnt effect. In the silk-waist trade and indeed, in most of the garment trades for women's wear, there arc model shop conditions where all the State lnws are strictly adhered te as te ventilation, sanitation, hours of work, conditions of work, etc. ; nnd mere than that where by agreement between the shop owners nnd the workers certain ether condi tions are ndhered te regarding the machine.! used, the accessories supplied, the pay ter extra time, the enlra pay for variations in patterns, etc. Sheps where there is this mnxlmum of geed conditions for the workers have a right te a label luting the fact. WHAT interested me was that the added cost in this case was about .fa for the certified waist, nltheugh It was less smart nnd et no better material nnd en tie whole net se salable as the ethers. Thore was no reason why the ctrtlOea wnlst should net have been made in no at tractive pattern as the uncertified one; in any oase it was unmistnkablc that the geed conditions of making it cost just $e mere thnn the making of the ether, for it is te be supposed that the shop took an equal profit out of both waists. Hreught down te its simplest terms, then, if the public wants goods made under geed labor conditions it ban ;:et te pay the bill.
