Law Enforcement It is an axiom almost universally accepted that a law which cannot be enforced, or which is not enforced, is worse than no law at all and had bet-.' tcr be repealed in an orderly manner. t3ut many who accept this axiom do not quire understand why an unenforced law is worse than no law at all. They assume the reason to be that its non-enforcement merely breeds a disregard of all laws and tends to anarchy. That is only one reason. There is another more concrete. We have, lor instance, laws prohibiting the cai r . ills of concealed weapons. The law-abiding natur ally observe it, while many who are not law-abiding tin not. The murderously inclined and the. foolish carry concealed weapons and sometimes use them against the law-nb'ding who, relying upon the law for their protection, are unarmed and defenseless. If the law cannot be enforced, or Is not enforced, would it not be better to wipe it out and serve notice thereby upon t lie law-abiding that tiiey must look to themselves for protection? So it is with our city traffic ordinances for the protection of persons who use the thoroughfares. We have already mentioned the case of a young man who was seriously and perhaps permanently injured the other nisht because he was relying upon the protection of a traffic ordinance. He saw an approaching automobile. He knew what course, in compliance with the ordinance relating to the turn ing of corners, that automobife would take. If there had been no such ordinance, the young man would have protected himself and would have escaped in jury. He could have done so easily. Most of the collisions that occur on the streets are between those who break the ordinances and those who are trying to obey them and assume that nil other users ot the streets are also trying to obey them. If the ordinances are not to be enforced, wipe them out ami scrse notice to all citizens to be on their guard when on the public thoroughfares. It is impossible, of course, to prohibit the com mission of any crime or. misdemeanor, to the extent of absolutely preventing it. However rigidly any law may be enforced, somebody is going to break it, but by the rigid and certain enforcement of it the number of those who violate it will be reduced to a minimum and society will be rendered measur ably secure. That so many persons violate '.he law against carrying concealed weapons and the ordinance reg ulating traffic is the fault entirely of those who administer the iaws; who foolishly distinguish be tween the consequences and the possible conse quences of offenses against the laws or the ordi nances. A man caught carrying a gun should in every case be presumed to be intending to commit homicide. Anyone violating the traffic ordinances should be considered as having caused the damage that might have been caused by him. In all cases the severest punishment provided should be imposed, for In no case can there be any extenuating circum Klances, for the offenses are of such a character that they cannot be committed without intent or forethought. A Libel on Arizona We are in receipt of a copy of the Evening Chronicle, Marshall. Michigan, which prints on Its first page, under black headlines, "Hang 11 Mur derers in Public Square, Phoenix," a United Press dispatch from this city, in relation to the execu tion of the condemned at Florence. The outrageous, libelous and damaging headlines are based on the following purported statement by Governor Hunt: If the voters meant that the death of these men would be an object lesson, let us make it as thorough as possible. I am in favor of wide pub licity. It will be better to hold this carnival of death in the public square, where every detail will be visible to every man, woman and child who wish to watch the ghastly proceedings." We do not believe that Governor Hunt ever made such an insane statement. We think a sensational and reckless correspondent has libeled both the gov ernor and the state, and we suggest that denial of It be given as wide publicity as the original libel lias had, and especially that the impression be dis pelled that it is possible to hold legal executions in the public squares of Phoenix or elsewhere in the utate of Arizona than at the state prison. As to a suggestion in the purported interview, of the governor's resentment against the. people of Arizona and of his purpose to punish them by means of a "carnival of death," we do not think the gov ernor has cause for resentment. The people have not accumulated the material for the carnival. Unemployment, Involuntary and Other Miss Ida M. Tarbell is one of the most brilliant and well-informed women in America. She has been a great force for good for more than a quarter of a century. Her exposures of gigantic abuses have led to their correction or modification. But Miss Tarbell has not always been infallible. She has fre quently flown off at a tangent to reappear on an entirely new orbit. In the current number of the American Magazine, Miss Tarbell has an article, "The Golden Rule of Business," dealing with the sub ject of unemployment. She can see no reason why (he government, with its great power for the or derly organization and mobilization of an army, may not organize the unchiployed into an army of em ployed. AVe will admit that the government might assume a function that it does not now exercise and find employment for more men than now have em- , ployment, but it could not enrofl all the unemployed any more than it could enroll all the citizens of the country into an army for warlike purposes. Many men do not want to be soldieis. It is Ihc assump tion of Miss Tarbell that every man who is un employed would work if he could find work to do. She introduces instances of the development of her theory on a small scale, and believes that all these experiments which have proved successful might be corrected ami combined into one great endeavor. But one of her instances has been unfortunately chosen, according to the following Associated Press dispatch which appeared in The Republican yester day morning: SEATTLE. Nov. 30. Henry Pauly, manager of the Hotel Liberty, the city"s refuge for unemployed, resigned because he had not found anions .he ,V.', men at the institution enough help to nperite the hotel. The men refused even to carry in" wood or potatoes. Last year Pauly was manager of Hotel d Gink, not directly um.cr city control, excluding all men unwilling to work. The new hotel receives all comers. The Pauly experiment is one to which Miss Tar bell devotes a great deal of space and attention. Pauly was an itinerant unskilled laborer, but a man of force and character, earnestly desirous of better ing the condition of himself and all others of his class, lyast winter he organized the unemployed of Seattle into "The Itinerants' l,al or I in ion," or the "Hoboes Union of America." He received the encouragement of the Central Labor Council, opened a lodging which was derisively called the 'Hotel de Gink," which should be a home for the unem ployed where they, would be tided over until work could be found for them, and he advertised for work. He send squads of men oilt to clean cp vacant lots. For others he got work at the commission houses, where they sorted potatoes and took in pay ment "seconds." which the men carried back to their lodgings. He sent out also squads ot men tj clean up the butcher shops and markets, whenever he found opportunity, and took the second cuts of meat in payment. In the san j way he got the bakeries to supply him with stale bread. Where an old building was being torn down, he got an opportunity to cart oil the lumber that was not usable: in this way he supplied the house with fuel during' the winter. As soon as it was possible he began to get contracts for clearing stump land. People said that the un employed did not want work. Pauly sent a gang of men out to clear some land who worked more than a month in the rainy season absolutely without shelter. Pauly would not admit to the ;place any man who was unwilling to work, and yet in Seat tie he cared for more than two thousand men dur ing the winter. There were hold-ups around Seattle, and it was suposed that Pauly's men were impli cated, whereupon Pauly showed that his men must be in the house at 1H:u0, and his books nlwnvtt showed -whether they were or not. To make doubly sure, he called in the police without warning, and had them "frisk" every lodger in the building. Not as milch as a penknife was found that did not be long there. Pauly had visions now of getting his men permanently onto the land. He hopes to get a contract for clearing land, where plots of land may be taken in payment. "That's the thing that will settle this employment question," says Pauly, "and settle it for all time." And yet, according to the Associated Press dis patch, the Pauly plan has failed. The unemploy ment problem has not been solved for the man who' does not want to work or who In a time of unem ployment insists upon choosing the kind of work he will do. The first thing to do is to rolve the problem of involuntary unemployment, and God knows: it is large and perplexing. A mistake is made in assuming all unemployment to be involuntary, as Miss Tarbell appears to assume. Her criticism of the injustice and cruelty of many employers, especially large employers, is well placed. Their tendency to regard and treat labor ing men as parts of a machine, to be thoughtlessly discarded, further complicates the problem of unemployment. THE AMERICAN POTTERY INDUSTRY Tlie American demand for several minor min eral products will be stimulated by the changes in trade with Europe, With the result of increasing ma terially the production for 1!'14 ami following years. In the case of pottery this movement toward a stronger hold of the domestic market is already well under way. The production in H'13 was the larg est in the history of the 'industry. The underlying cause of this prosperity is no doubt the improve ment in the character of the American product in texture, finish, color, decoration and the prevention of crazing, the higher grades of American pottery equaling if not surpassing some of the best import ed ware. For many years the value of the import ed iKittery exceeded the value of that made at home, but about the close of the nineteenth century do mestic production caught up with imports, and since that time it has greatly exceeded them, the produc tion in 1913 being nearly four times as great in value as the imports. There was, however, last year a considerable decrease in exports of pottery, a record which should now le reversed by reason of the changes in the world's commerce that have become inevitable.
