POOR UNCLE SAM. Mr. Hughes
now says: "I think I may say with
out rashness that today the govern
ment of the United States is reck7
lessly wasteful, shamefully incompe
tent and extravagant, a reproach to
the intelligence of a free people be
cause of its inefficiency."
And, by inference, the remedy he
suggests is to turn the government
over to the machine bossed by Crane,
Penrose, Smoot and Barnes.
In the meantime, Mr. Hughes is
presenting a pretty picture to the
other nations of .the world. Wilson
isn't responsible for pork extrava
gance cr for other sins of congress.
Neither of the oldjjarties enjoys a
monopoly of vice or of virtue. Con
gress has been wasteful and extrava
gant no matter what party was in
power and a Republican congress
man will hog pork just as fa'fet as he
can get it, which is the exact speed
of his Democratic neighbor in con
gress. If Hughes should be elected
he will have just as much trouble as
Wilson has had in making congress
be good. And pork will continue so
long as the people measure the effi
ciency of a congressman by the ap
propriations he gets for his district.
Evidently the distinguished ex-justice
removed his judicial poise when
he took off his justicial black kimono.

Mexican policies will not catch the
patriotic fancy of the American peo
ple. They will stand for a lot of
party wrangling in purely domestic
affairs, for they are used to that.
But they are not used to partisan
backcapping when a president is fac
ing a world war and trying to keep
this country out of it
DIRECT ACTipN OF CARRANZA.
Carranza is taking on American
civilization fast enough to please the
most fastidious employer of gunmen
strikebreakers in America. He's go
ing to kill Mexican wprkers who
have the gall to strike. That's more
direct than starving them to death
or making them work at the point of
a bayonet. Who -says the Mex are
PERKINS' DELIVERY. With
such stout Progressives as Bain
bridge Colby of N. Y., Matthew Hale
of Mass., Francis J. Heney of Califor
nia and Judge Lindsey of Colorado
out for Wilson, it would appear tnat
Perking cin't deliver all of the Pro
gressive "party to the Old Guard,, even
though. Garfield of Ohio and Robins
of 'Illinois trotted along as submis
sively as Mary's cute little lamb.
HAD A "SURE THING"
She was a young and pretty girl of
a sporting turn of mind. Somehow
she heard that a certain horse was
to win a certain race, and, deciding
to indulge in a little speculation, she
.went to- a "bookie" and put a dollar
dn for a win, asking how much she
would get if it came off.
"If it starts at 20 to 1 you will get
$21 'back," said the bookie, "if at
10 to 1, $11 back; if at 5 to 1, you
will get $6 back."
"I see," said the maiden, "and if
it starts at 1 o'clock, how much do
I get then?"
Though the winter girl may cut a
figure on ice, the summer grl must
have a figure of her own to cut lea
on the beach.
