The A. F. of L. Convention.
!u Despite all the black prophecies of his enemies, Mr. Gompersl
''Appears to have ruled with an iron hand at Atlantic City, and to
"have controlled the convention of the American Federation of Labor
as completely as if he reigned by hereditary or divine right
HI The radical element, which threatened to unhorse him, seems
>ot to have occasioned him the slightest uneasiness. Whatever the
future may be, the venerable president of the Federation is more
'?trongly entrenched in power ttoday than he ever was before, and the
;|J. W. W., the apostles of Bolshevism, and their ilk, have a long way
to go before they can overthrow the safe and sane policy which has
brought organized labor to the position of unprecedented prestige
^jvhich it occupies today.
The various independent labor parties which are springing up like
?mushrooms in the larger cities may have no other effect than dis
sipating the labor strength in the coming election, unless a rap
prochement is effected in the meantime. The spreading of the labor 1
movement to include various crafts and occupations commonly rated
,*s middle-class?such as retail clerks, bookkeepers, etc.?is the most
"Significant industrial news of the present hour, and the work of
unionization, is being done with the support of the A. F. of L- Labor
[[plight to present a solid front in 1920, but it can do so only by pur
suing a broad and liberal policy. Mr. Gompers is a far-sighted exec
utive. and his handling of the interests of labor during the war has
been so remarkably effective that our hopes are high his peace policy
will be equally successful. The labor movement in the United States
.iuight to be big enough and broad enough to include all those who
toil. The gates of the American Federation of Labor should be
??open to everybody.
The Knox Resolution.
HI If the fight for the league of nations covenant has been lost, so
"far as the Senate and the American people are concerned, then the
resolution sponsored by Philander Chase Knox, of Pennsylvania, is the
Improper thing under the circumstances.
But it has not been determined, so far, that the American people
are against the covenant. It is not even certain that the Senate is
against it, despite all the tumult and shouting that has been heard
lately. Senator Knox is evidently determined to destroy whatever
remnants of prestige President Wilson has in Paris. Should the
..Senate adopt his resolution, there is nothing left for the President
"to do but appeal to the country?and unfortunately, he cannot do
.that before 1930. Only in the event of an overwhelming pressure
pi public opinion can the course of the Senate Republicans be modi
fied, and it is doubtful if even that would influence them.
??? What a strange appearance the newspapers would present if you
"and I were compelled to advertise our money just as merchants now
feature their merchandise.
For instance, this might be one of the ads.
"I have some money saved up I want to spend. It is guaranteed
'$>? the government! I solicit your merchandise in change for my
'money. I will give you as much money for your merchandise as any
alher person; will furnish you a pocketbook to carry it in or will de
liver it if desired? Try me. See my money before letting some one
tfse have your merchandise."
If such were the way of doing business, merchants would have
to employ "readers" of the papers and men to follow up the ads. The
cost of doing business would be hundreds of times what it now is.
A republic is a combination in restrain of land grabbing.
China should have postponed her anti-Japanese boycott until the
league got on the job to guarait^e existing territorial integrity.
- ? After July 1, the sitting up that is done with sick friends won't
leave that dry feeling in the mouth next morning.
Prosperity enables us to buy a great many thing^ we don't care
anything about in order to impress the neighbors.
- Our solemn Senators will be able to decide the fate of the peace
t/eaty if they don't run out of personal epithets.
?1 Bomb plots won't terrorize Uncle Sam, but they make him mad
.enough to clean house.
" Just when we are about ready to believe that people are growing
wiser every day, we run across some fellow who argues that Germany
Vlrill not re-establish her commercial spy system.
!Perhaps it would be unkind to intimate that Burleson hastened
to give back the wire lines in order to let somebody else handle the
strike of operators.
In Russia and Mexico a patriot is one who fights on the side
that captures him and offers him a choice between a firing squad
and regular rations.
" In conformity with the spirit of idealism actuating greater na
tions, the small nations made of Austrian and Hungarian territory

A RISING MARKET.
By EDMUND VANCE COOKE
Robinson went to the grocery store,
He went there sick and he came back sore.
"Thev took my purse," he whimpered, "and wow!
They drained it down to the dregs.
This is no world for a poor man, now;
Look at the price of eggs!"
Smith, taking Genesis as his guide,
\dded a wife, and multiplied.
Now, he moans as he leathers his clan,
Sized and graded from twelves to twos,
"This is no world for a family man;
Look at the price of shoes!
Jones' second son, christened Thomas,
Was sued by a vamp, for breach of promise.
The jury came in, with a nonchalant air,
And old Jones groaned, as he split his treasure,
"This is no world fpr a millionaire;
Look at the price of pleasure."
Satan came up for new supplies;
Brimstone and sulitlur were still on the rise.'
"I'm closing my snop," he cried. "I'm through!
I'm not a bad sport, but?well.
What's a poor devil like me to do?
Look at the price of hell!"

When yesterday he finally was able

The Fordney bill makes the provisions of existing laws relatin*
to pensions applicable to all persons who were in the military or
naval service 'on or after Octobcr 6, 1917.
Recalls Big Fight on Pension Sharks.
The agitation engendered by the Fordney bill recalled to several
old-time newspaper men the big fight made against some of the
tricks of certain so-called pension attorneys bv the New York H?r*kL
about thirty years ago. As a result of the publication of abuses that
had grown up at that time, a rigid investigation was made and most
of the abuses corrected. Several of the offenders came near having to
serve terms behind the bars. It is said that some of the methods
now in vogue will not bear the searchlight of investigation I may
have more to say on this subject later.
Tennessee Would Get Machine Guns.
. Senator Pomerene, of Ohio, was addressing the Seflate in favor
of the bill which provides for presenting the cannon and other trophies
captured by Americans in the world war to the several States pro

nished. Senator Kenneth'McKcIlar of Tennessee interrupted the
Ohio statesman to say:
"If you mean to give to a State the particular trophies capture*
by men from that State, I do not agree with the Senator."
"Why?" came the sharp reply from Senator Pomerene. like tho
crack of a rifle.
"Bccause," Senator McKrllar came back smilingly, "becaase in
that event all the machinc guns would go to Tennessee."
"Sergeant York, the mountain lion of Tennessee," commented
Representative Cordell Hull, who had been an interested listener t?
What the World Demands Today.
CHARLES E. KENNEDY, who has returned to Washington
after serving in a Canadian "outfit" in the world war. quotes from
a recent statement of Thomas Adams, who is deeply engaged in re
construction work in Canada, and says the quotation applies in oto
own good United States. Here it is:
"The things that are demanded of public leaders today are
courage, rapid decision and imagination, rather than the timid, in
decisive, and dilatory methods of the legal zoind that controls our
policies under non.inl conditions We have ceased raking up ashes
