There is no escaping the issue of whethci Ave will enforce tin Volstead Act. wiiieh is the law eiiaeted to put into effect the Eighteenth Aineiulnieiit to the Constitution. The republicans. ii\ dodging the issue, have given the liipior interests to understand thai they will not enforce the law, and they thus become nullifiers <d' pro hibition as well as nullifiers of the League of Nations. The democratic* convention must act on this question its it must on every other vital issue lie fore the American people. The wet forces do not hope to secure tin* adoption of a wet plank, its they know that is impossible. They do. however, aim to stultify the demo crats as they did the republicans, by inducing them to omit the law enforcement plank thus becoming nullifiers of the law of the land. It is up to the democrats not to lie misled by the talk of ''prohibition not being the issue." Prohibition is not the issue. The issue is law enforcement; upholding the Constitution of the I'nited States; and the democratic party is strongly American, hence it must and will take its stand for the American idea of law enforcement. "Democrats may he feeling joyful over the choice of a conserva tive like Senator Harding for the republican presidental nomina tion. hut if they imagine the republicans are going to the country on the personality of Mr. Harding alone they are very much mis taken," says David Lawrence, chief press agent for the republicans. Well, we certainly agree with you, Dave. After having been up against the strong box of the old guard for forty years past, the democrats were simpletons indeed if they believed the old guard would risk their chances on any man's personality, much less on one so weak as they themselves tell us Harding is. They pin their faith to something more persusasive than personality. The only reason the professional politician gets away with it is because he takes more interest in the public's business than the public does.—Bulletin. The Walla Walla Bulletin wonders whether the chaplain prays for the convention or the country. Two hundred and twenty-two years ago Arabia was overridden by bands of lawless men, while officials of the law protected them just as law lessness was protected 151 years later when the gold seekers rushed to California and the mining camps of the Pacific coast. At San Francisco and in the mining camps of those days, decent citizens were compelled to take the execution of law into their own hands. They organized the Vigi lantes, and law was restored to the land. It was so in Arabia. But instead of calling the law-enforcing organi zations Vigilantes, they were known as the Ancient Arabic Order of the Mystic Shrine; they resorted to tortures and unusual methods of inquisi tion to force truth from the lips of their victims and thus to trace out the ramifications of the conspirators who were preying upon society. All this is written in history, where it is also made known that the order was founded by Louis Marracci. In Arabia the Shrine is yet in existence. But for the purpose of this history a few years shall be omitted. No one cares much about what happened in Arabia, anyway, except to know that the Shriners cleaned up the thugs and outlaws of early days and made the country fairly fit for an Arabian to live in, and a fine place for a while man to stay away from. Then in 1871, William J. Florence, good, old laughter making "Billy," drifted to Mecca. We don't know whether he was playing "An American Citizen" for the Arabs or not. Maybe he went as a tourist and was haled before the Shrine on suspicion, but when he came back he was wearing the emblem of the Shriner, had a ritual in his pocket and the glimmering of an idea that by burlesquing the tortures and methods of the Arabs, a lot of good fun could be had. Being a thirty-third degree Mason, Noble Florence had no trouble in convincing the temple at Aleppo that all Knights Templar and Scottish Rite Masons of the thirty-second degree were of the best quality of citizenship, and that they should form the mem bership for the Ancient Arabic Order, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, in America. Dr. William F. Fleming, eminent commander of Columbia command ery, No. 1, K. T.; Noble William J. Florence and George F. Loder nre said to have called ameeting of Masons of the high degrees named ,and out or that meeting came the organization of Mecca temple, No. 1, of New York city, founded on the twenty-sixth day of September, 1872, and yet a potent factor in Shrinedom. Through all the years "Mother Mecca" has had the love of her daughter temples, and is represented here at the forty-sixth annual session of the imperial council of the order by a forceful delega tion. Today there are 147 temples of the Mystic Shrine, having a mem bership of more than 300,000, assets amounting to many millions of dol lars. Americans of highest standing wear the emblem of the order with pride and are glad to give of their time to its progress and development. Shrinedom has its serious side as well as its mirth. Its members are from those who have withstood the tests of Masonry, the greatest of all secret orders. It demands clean hands and clean records as a prerequisite for membership it hand-picks its candidates. It is a high honor to be able to wear the >mblem of Shrinedom, and tho emblem must never be disgraced. When the average man goes home at the end of the day he takes off his coat and prepares to cut-up with the kid-.. He can relax without danger of criticism. When a Mason reaches the Shrine he does the same thing.—Portland Journal. WILSON AM) THK DKMOCHATIC I'AKTY j From Springfield Republican, May 13, 1920. The President's message to the ; Oregon democrats concerning the ! treaty is not inconsistent with the | stand taken by his supporters in the Senate in favor of the Hitchcock res ervations. What the President ad vised the Oregon democrats to repu diate were the Lodge reservations. Nothing in the President's message can be construed as uncompromising opposition to any reservations what ever. Reservations that uullify. " whittle down or weaken" the cove nant the President condemns, as lie always has; and the Lodge reserva tions are of that character. If they were not of that character, none of the dozen or more republican irreconcilables in the Senate would I have helped to put thetn through; ! Mr. Lodge himself would had no use i THE WASHINGTON STANDARD. OLYIIPIA. WASH.. TUESDAY. .JI NK 22. 1!>20 ORIGIN OK THE MYSTIC SHRINE I for them, and Mr. Tuft down to tho vei y last would not have opposed thetn. The reason they were finally accepted by many in both parties who had lons fought them was based s upon the belief that "a half loaf is » better than none"—Mr. Taft's vei.v ) words. It cannot be said, however, . that a half loaf is as good or desirable as a whole loaf. In the case of the covenant, moreover. Senator Knox (now specifically denies that the Lodge reservations "Americanize" it; what is worse still, he condemn them in toto because "nothing could be fraught with more dnnger than any nation's having a specially insured relation to a league where the other nations are subject to the dangers' I against which the immune nation at-, ! tempts to secure itself." If the league is to become the su-1 ; preme issue of the presidential cam-! : paign with the President leading the fight for it in substantially the form in which it was incorporated in the I treaty, the President will he able I i quo!* IP m thr.-e eminent republican .lit'liorii !• - io the following effect: 1. From Mr. Taft, former presi dent of Ihe I ailed States, that the COV'T.unt C'.ttt he safely " sply an ept.l wi: bout am :pn w hate. i r. From Senator Km. . lornier secretary of state, that there is no truth in the statement that the Lodge re-erva' inn- A' "I'icani/e" the lei igue. and that their actual incorpora tion in the treaty would be "fraughl with more danger" than anything else conceivable. From Senator Hodge, chairman of tin Senate committee on foreign | relation, that a separate peace, which Senator Knox advises and the peace j resolution contemplates but which Mr. Wilson adhors. "would brand us j with everlasting dishonor" and "bring ruin" also to the country. The democratic party lias President : Wilson to deal with. He is no easy ! customer. For almost eight years lie has been the party's unquestioned ] chief. Under his leadership two i presidents! elections have been won I Allowing for all the mistakes and | failures of his two administrations, his positive achievements will blaze i brightly in history. He has ruled so i strongly both as a party leader and as | a president that his political oppo nents in all other parties today de- nounce him as an autocrat, but at least he has succeeded in making ob solete the old charge which republi cans periodically brought against the democratic party for a generation— that it could not govern. The President finally went into the war reluctantly, like a humanita rian and a Christian—but he came out of it stupendously victorious, hav ing personally forced the downfall of the Hohenzollern dynasty, and driven the kaiser into exile. Prof. Keynes his English critic at Paris, ranks Wil son with Koch's armies in destroying the will to war of the enemy peoples and also says that he was the "noblest figure" in the treaty negotiations lat the peace conference. Mr. Hoover, just after the armistice was signed, | delivered this judgment: "There is no greater monument to any man's genius than the conduct of negotia tions with the enemy by the Presi dent." Prof. A. L Pollard of the Uni Iversity of London now writes in-hi i new book on the world war tha't de I spite its shortcomings, the Paris con ference, chiefly through the creation lof the league of nations, "achieved I higher ideals than those attained by any preceding congress of peace " I The democratic party must soon de cide whether it will repudiate this democratic president or stand by hint. I Considered simply as a party que.t ,tion, repudiation of the present i leader appears as suicidal a policy as! I was the repudiation of President I j Cleveland by the democratic national i convention of 18ft6. Cleveland was disavowed and scorned, but the shat |tered democratic party went out of power for 16 years. The chaos into which the democratic party would inow be thrown by repudiating Presi-J | dent Wilson cannot be forecast or l measured. He will not yield. The I party must see him through or suffer 1 .painful consequences. LABOR LEADERS WILL MEET IN SEATTLE July 12th to 15th Are the Pates Set for Convention. Arrangements are rapidly being whipped into shape for the big Na tional Association of Government Labor Leaders' convention, which takes place in Seattle, July 12 to 15. The program is in charge of State Labor Commissioner C. H. Younger, who is busily engaged securing speakers and features for the time. Speakers so far arranged for are Governor Louis F. Hart,; Hurley L Hughes, chairman of the industrial insurance commission, who will use m as his subject. "Problems of the In jured Workman"; Henry Suzzallo, president of the state university, and William Short, president of the State Federation of Labor. Mr. Younger returned Friday from a trip to Seattle, where he arranged to use the Seattle Chamber of Com merce for the convention and also to make the headquarters at the Wash ington hotel. In experiments made in the home economics kitchen of the United States Department of Agriculture it has been found that it is best for almost every purpose to put corn meal and cold water together and then heat them over boiling wider in a double boiler. Except when very finely ground meals are used it is unnecessary to stir the mixture a f any time, not even when the meal and water are put together . The con clusion has been reached that in all cases the best results are obtained by heating the meal and liquid to gether without stirring. A good colony of bees at the begin- ; ning of the honey flow should consist Df one selected queen and 75,000 to 100,000 workers. TKIItI'TK TO THK IWKMKH. Hv K. T. Meredith, Secretary of Agriculture. I ll' iarnier of today is an up-to date, practical, intelligent, heme-lov -1 ing human being. 1 want you to get that. That isn't just commonplace. He i. an up practical, home loving human being. He is moved by the same emotions tlint you ate moved by. He has the same love of family He will sacrifice as much for them: he v ill do as much for their comfort, and yet a lot of advertising men don't seem to believe it. Von think the man in town will buy this or that or the other tiling for his fam ily, but it never enters your head that the farmer would. Hut you re member that he has the same emo tions and that he is just as human as I the rest of us. He Is just a little more thoughtful than many of us; he reads a little more on the average than the rest of us. No matter how i we in the cities may pride ourselves lon our intelligence the farmers of I America read, men, more than the ; peoples of the cities, positively, and die thinks while he reads. He thinks j more clearly than the rest of us. and die is hardly as selfish as those of us who must crowd into an elevator a dozen times a day and rush for a seat. I have seen you city fellows do It— i rush for a seat in the subway, you know, and then get into the elevator first—why, you quit your desk five | minutes ahead of time in order to ge' I a seat in the restaurant. 'The farmer has a different train ing. He is a little more generous than that. He is a little more gener ous than we in the cities who ha\e a different training. This is reflected in his attitude towards his neighbors and liis country, and we may well congratulate ourselves today, you and I that this is true when the two great forces in industry are lined up to see which one may get the possible advantage of the other, and when neither side is worrying particularly about the interests of the other. "This great body of clear thinking, solid, substantial farmers of the eou i- try is an anchor to the windward. They always have and always wi'.l serve their country well in peace o/ in war, and are a body of citizens it which each and every one of us ow > a just, generous, fair and squure deal in every way. "I would like to say this about this i just, fair, square deal to the farme v i An evening could be devoted to that subject, again. A man came to De". Moines recently to ask me if I ! wouldn't call a conference of farmers, twenty or thirty or forty of the big gest farmers in lowa. I said: "What !for?" He said: "I want to talk to them about more production." And 1 said: "No, I positively will not, If you will get together twenty of the biggest men in lowa, the biggest gas oline engine manufacture, the big gest banker, the biggest retailer, the biggest in every line that you can j find, then I will get twenty big farrn iers. and if you will make your prob lems mutual, if you will show him 'how you are going to reduce the cost of a pair of shoes and the price of a gasoline engine, then you can talk to hint about more production to reduce the price of the food products." The farmer's business is production. He is producing; he Is working all the time, but you and I and the other business men must do something now to show th's farmer that we are in terested in his welfare. And it is not only that, but this thought that I want to leave with you is that it is up to you, selfishly, as a business man. to see that this farmer is looked after. It is up to you as a patriotic Ameri can citizen, to see that he is looked after, because every civilization that has ever gone down has gone down because the people went from th.* country to the city.
