The Mystery in the Lansing Case.
No surprise will be caused by the retirement from the Cabinet
of Secretary Lansing, although the circumstances attendant upon
that long expected eveat may well awaken something more than
That there was discord between the President and the Secretary
of State was a matter of common notoriety at the Paris conference,
and a subject freely discussed since, but it was left to the President's
arwn letters to show that reasons still unstated added to the estrange
ment between the two.
It is customary in cases of this sort for wise observers to look
back of the published correspondence for the true reasons for the
breaking of the ties between a President and one of his official family.
As a rule the written langdtage is employed io conerai thought, and
to gloss over any personal feelings. When reasons arc set forth
they are usually those which redound most to the credit of him who
offers them. But in this instance the motives assigned by the
President for dissatisfaction "With the Secretary of State will impress
most people as utterly inadequate.
In the first letter of the scries furnished to the press the Presi
dent inquires of the Secretary whether "during my illness you have
frequently called the heads of the executive departments into con
ference?" Upon the Secretary's affirmative answer Mr. Lansing's
resignation was asked lor. In th? earlier letter the President had
said that "under our constitutional law and practice no one but the
President has the right to summon the heads of the executive depart
ments into conference."
But. in fact, the Constitution makes no reference to the Cabinet
which as a body exists entirely without constitutional sanction. Mr.
Lansing violated no constitutional principle. If he had, rebuke for
that act would come curiously from the first President who ven
tured to transfer the seat of the executive government beyond the
Atlantic. President Wilson has never hesitated to establish new
precedents for the country's good, and has been generally applauded
lor liis actions. t
That the President should have been in ignorance of these irf
formal gatherings of liis Cabinet is surprising to those who have
been best informed as to the conduct of matters at the White House
during his illness. His secretary and his physician were frequent
attendants upon the meetings, and were entrusted with the responsi
bility of conveying to him information as to the character of the
<li-cussion and as to certain conclusions reached. In at least two
instances it lias been generally believed that action was taken by
difect order of the President and in accordance with the views of
the Cabinet as thus reported to him.
It i- apparent that grave embarrassment is likely to be caused
other members of the Cabinet by the severity o? the rebuke admin
istered to Secretary Lansing. That gentleman has said that he called
ihese outlawed meetings after conference with other members of the
Cabinet. Naturally they will feel in honor' bound to share with him
the odium of having thus offended the President Secretary Lane
has already manfully stated his equal share in the responsibility. It
is reported furthermore that at least one other member of the
Cabinet not orti y attended the meetings called by Mr. Lansing, but
procured the calling of one himself.
That there should be complete harmony between the president
of the L'nited States and the Secretary of State is at all times most
desirable. During the grave international complications of the last
year, which still beset us, the necessity for this harmony has been
more than ever vital. President Wilson and Secretary Lansing, both
men of high ability and untarnished patriotism, lia\e been at odds on
many issues of international importance It ?as and is best that
this situation should be ended. ?
V\ r think, however, tfiat it was unfortunate that in ending the
situation the President should have assumed the tone toward his
Secretary that he did. In his action taken "so far as it related to the
holding 01 unofficial Cabinet uneetings Secretary Lasting was un
doubtedly animated by purposes 01 the highest patriotism. If the
President was not more ill than those about him have let the country
know he must have been cognizant of these meetings, and indeed
there is much evidence to indicate that he was. To ba.-e the* dis
missal of an official so eminent and highly respected as Holjcrt
Lansing has been, upon the unsupportahle pica that he had usurped
executive authority is likely to set the people wondering what were
the real reasons for the act.
Dying to Live Again?But How?
The women suffragists and the third party prohibitionists of the
country have been in national and State conference sessions during
. the past few days, triumphing in the success of the causes they have
fought for, and discussing wjiat shall become of their organizations.
Coming at a time when other party funerals are intimated "as near
r.nd when new parties arc struggling into being the coincidence of
these two conferences of a mortuary sort is doublv interesting.
Mr. Hays' appeal in behalf of the Republican National Committee
that "The women' decide to join one or the other of the historic
parties as they personally incline by conviction or tradition, and that
they abstain from the reported officially approved policy of shifting
?their strength en masse to a League of Women Voters voting after
the group fashion, is a natural plea. Mr. Cummings of the Demo
cratic National Committee no doubt would say, "Amen." But these
are parlous times for the thumpers of t?ie parfy drums and clangcry
of the party cymbals.
The women got their victory by union, hardly won, patiently
built up and strategically exercised They see issues affecting
women and children coming before State and national legislatures,
where all the wisdom they have acquired as politicians can be best
utilized by "group action." Why, they? ma/ naturally argue, turn
themselves and their causes over to parties, bi-sex in make-up? Ther
know that fights lie ahead. Why turn to an alliance with com
batants who never conceded anything to women until forced 1o?
As for the partisan Prohibitionists it is a peculiar phenomenon
that nearly two generations of struggle to get Federal law of a
sumptuary kind and involving disintegration of the States' rights
doctrine in 'quarters where it was once strongest, have made them
akin in many of their beliefs to the other class groups that champion
State ccsntrol of industry, commerce and transportation. So that
they ay now actually talking of calling themselves the "Federal"
party. Jefferson and Jackson between them buried early that aggre
gation of conservative aristocrats known as the "Federalists." Now
it bobs up again, but not serenely, and emerges from the "ranks of
middle class radicals with Mr. Bryan as the patron philosopher of
the movement on its political theory side. .
It's a splendid civic spirit that leads the employes to volunteer
thtir services to keep the District night schools op?n, but it reflects
little credit upon Congress*that they arc obliged to do it.
An association bat been formed in) Germany to pray for the?
former Kaiser, presumably in the belief better late than never.
The politicians expect the silent vote to be quite a factor m the
national election, but they don't list the women jn it

Bettor The" Washington Herald :
On page 1 of The Washington
Herald of February 7 appears an
article entitled "Demands for War
Criminals Criticised In Allied Na
tions." In this article KeneVlvI
ani, former prime minister of
France, states that Americas fail
ure to ratify the Versailles treaty
and Kngland's troubles in Ireland
and Kgypt prevent the allies from
bringing military pressure upon
<?ermany. He then suggests a sub
stitute demand for further supplies
of coal as reparation for t.ermany's
no nco mpl lance with the treaty
paragraph stipulating the surren
der of the criminals.
Such a scheme would involve
some nice appraisal work. I won
der ?T Kene Vivian! has arrived at
a fair price for the Kaiser. He
ought to be worth several train
loads of good coal. France t would
benefit much more by burning the
coal than by burning the Kaiser.
They rnight be able to swap Von
Hindenburg for a Westphalia mine/
while the crown prince would prob
ably bring a sh,rt ton fot "run of

Kene Vlvlani's article seems to
invite suggestions. 1 would there
fore suggest that a commission be
immediately appointed to determine
the .calorific value of the big Huns

tions be opened with Germany for
the purpose of exchanging war

The activities of certain expert
marksmen wrfo did not cire to an
swer enumerators" <|u?Mions also
have been productive of a ?rood deal
of grief. Kvery now and then,
upon becoming het up over some
pointed question such as "Where
were you born?" rantankerous indi
viduals have reached behind kitchen
doors for old muxJile-loading pro
tectors and told the enumerators to
"git" and git fast. Official records
show that enumerators u ni versa U*?
have upheld the dignity of the gov
ernment by leaving and not enlac
ing in disgraceful argument with
the owners of the shotgun?.
There is a law. of course, uhi. h
? rot cet s enumerators from assault.
But it has proved of little benefit
o? ing to the fact that laws usually
hang around the court house down
town while shotguns most frequently
show up in the suburbs.
Not all of the persons who cause
trouble for the bureau actually
draw weapons on enumerators, how
over. There was the mayor of a
large Kastern city who absolutely
declined to answer questions. A
smart enumerator went to the
mayor's wife and got the informa
tion. Another man. on the advice
of his attorney, who happened to
be in his client's house when the
enumerator called, declined to an
swer question* until Hie enumerator
removed his hat. This case wss ??n
pealed to Washington and the bu
reau upheld the householder. A re
ligious sect out West insisted that
they were children of God and that
their only home was in Heaven
and that record stands. One enum
erator actually d'sappcared and the
bureau had an awful time locating
hi" books.
It cost more this year to take the
census, per head, than it did In for
mer years. Enumerators were paid
4 cents a head. They used to do it
for 3 cents. A few were paid $*?
a day. In the remote rural districts,
and every now and then one would
finish his work.
