SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH i?, 1319 Now that democracy is declared on all sides to he worth dying for, surefy it 18 worth living hy. Mrs. Ravinoiid Robins. i "In Principle" Premier Hughes of Australia brings to the surface a peculiarity of ,he proceedings in the drafting of the constitution of the league of Nations that had been . previously observed, a tendency to recognize "in prin ciple" everything that anybody wants recognized and to prohibit "in principle" everything whose prohibition is desired: that is, it was designed to make a con stitution that -would be all things to all men. It was designed to be offensive to none. Another thing in the proceedings is that the representatives of all the na tions in the conference, except America, have been lighting for something in the constitution that will be advantageous to their respective rations. T!ut the representative of America has strenuously opposed the inclusion of anything advantageous to America but With great reluctance is being brought to insist that there shall be nothing disadvantageous to his own country. But returning to the peculiarity which Premier Hughes lias brought to the surface, the contention of so powerful a nation as Japan in favor of racial equal ity in the league, society or family of nations is on its face so reasonable that it cannot with reasonable argu ment be opposed. If it cannot be accepted it is diffi cult to see how Japan can be accepted as a member, on the other hand the inclusion of Japan's contention would mean' the abrogation of the immigration laws of every nation. Thus an impossible situation has been created which it is proposed to meet by an agreement "in principle" with Japan's contention and an agreement "in practice" with the desires of every member nation with" respect to immigration and naturalization. In such an arrangement the seeds of war are planted at the outset and we might expect that they would ger minate rapidly. But either Japan must yield or the constitution will not be. accepted in America. Then there is the Monroe Doctrine for which recognition is proposed or said 1o be proposed in Article X, the most conspicuous feature of which is the 'studied neglect to mention the Monroe Doctrine by name, lest offense be given to European nations. According to the dispatches Article X denatured and meaningless as it is, has already met with stubborn opposition. In these circumstances we are already apprised that there is an clement in the conference most likely the entire conference, (except our own delegates who are apparently willing and eager to yield) hostile to the Monroe Doctrine. There America stands alone and unrepresented. Now suppose Article X is included with its mean ingless phrases, or suppose it should be finally ex cluded, can any sensible American not perceive that if this country does not abandon the Monroe Doctrine, that in itself must be a bone of contention and a cause of war? In how many of the vague clauses of the covenant' there are concealed causes of dispute one cannot con jecture. Many of them arc susceptible of varied interpretations as national selfishness would put upon them and they have been intentionally left vague to secure acquiescence in them. There has been, of nurse, a hope that just interpretations will be made when disputes arise, but justice will almost certainly be warped by national self-interest. An indefinite constitution will be a most dangerous jne. The time to find an understanding is at the be sining. In no other way may misunderstandings be iverted. The Pardoning Power The evidence before the committee of the legis lature of Iowa is not on its face sufficient to convict the governor of Iowa of having accepted a bribe for the pardon of a life convict, but it has been disclosed that there had been such an abuse of the pardoning power as to provoke an investigation of this case. So, somewhere the governor has been at fault. In this case the governor says that he is convinced that the man whom he pardoned is guilty, though at first he believed him to be innocent. His assumption of his innocence however, rested on a recommendation by the trial judge for a pardon and a record of the case prepared by the attorney who was urging the ardon. It is a very common thing for aJl who have par ticipated In the trial of a man to joX in a movement for his pardon court, jury and sometimes prosecut ing attorney. This is proper enough when evidence tending to establish the innocence of the condemned has been discovered too late to be used at the trial, but there can be no excuse for it otherwise and the pardoning power is warranted in diaregarding all such attempts at interference. If a judge believes a man to be innocent though a Jury has found him guilty, he may giant him a new trial, so that the judge's recommendation for a par don should not carry with it a great deal of weight. T-re ix too frequently the exercise of the par doning power in this country, a too great tendency toward leniency by soft-hearted and soft-brained judg es who regard the laws as playthings. Naturally laws which they treat contemptuously fall into contempt by criminals. x Governors should hold themselves above this weakness. The pardoning power was never meant to be abused, was never meant to be used capriciously. In fact, it was never meant to be used except where the user has good reason to believe nut to surmise that injustice has been done. H is not ti be assumed l.k tii user that the condemned ha.alreadv iwen suf ficiently punished, or he is not to guess that the condemned will hereeforth lead an honest and up right life, and should therefore be restored to the society he has outraged. There are two reasons why the criminal laws of Great BrHai nare so much more efficacious than ours. It is not that the British people are naturally more law abiding than we are. One of the reasons is that the laws are much more promptly and rigidly enforced than ours, and the other is that the pardoning power is so seldom exercised that it is almost a tradition. In this country the criminal sees only a remote possibility of punishment. There is the long delay in bringing him to trial and in this interim interest is largely lost in his case; he is given every possible chance of escape during his trial; if convicted, there is the possibility of a new trial; then, the appeal, and if that fails, there is the pardoning power, which if not exercised during one administration may be exercised by another, two or four years hence. The criminal is constantly bolstered up by the hope of freedom and in nine times out of ten his hope has not been entertained in vain. Kvery now and then when an abuse in any in dustry is apparent there is a demand that the govern ment take charge of that industry and run it. Hut there is nowhere now any demand that the government continue to run the railroads. Hut there must be somcthinstunder the sun the government can run suc cessfully if. we can only find it. So experimentation continues to be advocated. 1 There is one thing we like about the new bolsheviki Hungarian government, the order making work com pulsory and declaring that only those who work either manually or with the brain, have a right to live in a proletariat state. Such an order would not be popu lar though with the bolshevists of America whom we know, inasmuch as it takes no account of those who work with the jaw. An orgnization of domestic help is said to be under way in some parts of the country and householders fear the effect of a strike. But the situation will not be much diffrent from that which has obtained from time immemorial. There, is not a household that has escaped a series of strikes, walk outs or lockouts of unorganized help. Now we are threatened with a sharp increase of the prices of coffee and tea when prohibition goes into effect all over the country. Perhaps. But then the country will have more money to pay for these beverages. The members of the Phoenix Soldiers and Sailors baseball team will have a chance on April 10 to break into league ball if they can show Manager Mitchell of the Cubs what they have in them. We are glad to observe the crusade that is being made against the gamblers. We only hope that it will not be a spotted movement. A CHECKERED CAREER A man made a bet with his wife which was in discreet. The, wife won which was foreordained. The man wrote the wife a check for $3 in pay ment of the bet which was sad. The wife cashed the check at the grocery, but forgot to indorse it which was natural. The grocer, despite the lack of indorsement, paid it to a packing-house collector which was careless. The packing house collector turned it in which was all in a day's work. The packing house office man discovered the lack of indorsement which was good work. He handed it back to the driver and docked the driver's salary which was system. The driver placed the check in his white duck coat and sent it to the laundry which, was unwise. The laundry mutilated the check beyond recog nition which was to be expected. Which is why the driver asked the cashier to ask the grocer to ask the man's wife to ask her hus band to write a duplicate check. Which is why the man feels like he is paying that bet twice.

The rocerette Crutches, held by -wounded soldiers, replaced the traditional arch of swords, at the wedding reception given in Pershing House in New York City following the marriage of Miss Pauline Donahue and Private Ernest Perreira, at St Stephen's Church. As the bride and groom entered the hallway of Pershing House, coming from the church they passed between two lines of wounded soldiers, all companions of the bridegroom. Instead of making an arch of crossing sword blades, the wounded men held their crutches overhead, as the newly-married pair entered tha room. It was most befitting that the wedding reception was held in Pershing House, which is a "War Camp Community Service homo in Gramercy Park, as it was there the couple first met.
