CONGRESS is going right along do- 'J
iag nothing, just as if there was noth- c
lag to be done. There's not only a l<
of leadership, but there's precious ii
Utile to lead. ^

itlg over it, for everybody knows that c
itie an additional tax for which we get
no additional benefit.
AN energetic movement has been
started looking tb a reduction of paasegger
fares on the railroads. Everybody
knows that they are too high, but
the railroad managers, apparently,
wtgjld rather keep on losing money an
high rates than to make money by reducing
fares to a point where travel
wfl^ld be stimulated.
AN investigation of the affairs af
the General Electric Company, which
has a monopoly of the manufacture
of electric light bulbs, shws that this
decern is making a profit sixteen
tithes greater than it ought to make.
In one year its profits on incandescent
laTnpe alone was $2(1,000.900. Na
wtgjder we have to pay such outrageous
prices for electric light bulha.

will nat only be a candidate, but that j

SOME plain facts were placed before ,
the Interstate Commerce Commission '
'ast Thursday by J. I). A. Morrow, vicepresident
of the National Coat Association
and representing some 2,- (
(100, coal operators. He wa9 appealing i
for a reduction of freight rates on coal.' t
Hd declared that since 1914 the rail- 5
roads had increased the freight on coal \
as much as 200 per cent in some in- r
stances, and that the present average
cost af transporting a ton of coal from I '
the mine to the consumer is $2.74 a j '
ton, while the coal itself at the mine is 0
priced at $2.14. Under such condi-1
tirns it is, of course, impossible to ship I 1
a ton of coal abroad, where foreign j J
competition must be met?indeed, j
bug ish coal is sold in the seaboard ; c
cities of the United States cheaper than 1 c
cur own producers can supply it. V
Mr. Morrow and his associates ask
tor a reduction of 75 cents u ton. which t
s very mMdest indeed. There ought to p
be a Hat reduction of at least a dollar | c
a ton, and there would be if the cam-j n
mission were not such a stupid body. ! t

Blue Ridge Down* Collegians.
The Shepherdstown Collegians lost
ist Friday night to the quint from
Hue Ridge College, of New Windsor,
Id., by the score of 41 to 27. This
ame was interesting from whistle to
rhistle. The visitors grabbed the lead
t the start and were never headed
hereafter. The home team pulled
tself together in the last half and
/ere within three points of tying the
ount at twenty-three all. The Colege
lads showed their superior trainng
and from then on forged ahead,
'he visitors were not much in the noion
of playing the t*nie, as the Shepicrd
College team had beaten them in
he afternoon, and they were somewhat
dissatisfied with decisions render1>d.
Satisfactory arrangements were
nade far the evening game and they
:onsented to play., The game was one i
>r the cleanest that has been seen on \
he local court this seasen. The home
cam was somewhat off when it came

This Thursday the attraction will be
the strong Pennsylvania State Forestry
Academy in the Obmmunity hall at 8
o'clock. These boys have the reputation
of having a fast, clean team and
the local aggregation will have to be
on their toes when the whistle announces
the start of probably the best
game of the season. The fans will be
glad t* see back in the line-up again
the veteran Brandy Myers, who has
came back after several months absence.
Knstt will be out of the game,
being seriously ill at this writing. M?Kee
will not be here, so the Collegians
will put an entirely different
line-up against the visitors.
Tuesday night the fevers of basketball
will have a chance to sec the
champions of West Virginia and Maryland
in action. The Kcyser Collegians
have been booked for that night, the
31st, at 8.15, in the community building.
(t will be recalled that this team
played here last year and the score
if the doatest was 70 to 4.3. That isn't
jo bad, only 27 points difference. If
*'c can hold them that close this time,
/oil can look out for a Rbod clean gamd
vith plenty of pass work to top it off.
Editor Register?I read your article
entitled, "Running Wild." The title
s very characteristic of the majority
if our high-up teachers and high-up
school officers. They are evidently |
lollar crazy. They never once think, |
Where is the fundamental stource of
ny meat aad bread?
^cs, "Running Wild," robbing the
armer, the only one on our earth who
urmshes us our meat and bread,
fou can't eat money, you can't eat coal,
til, gas or lumber.
If there be no grain, no cattle, no
togs, there will be no meal nor bread.
Vegetables are the products of that
armor's sweat. More, his pay day is
ty no means a certainty. It docs not
onic to pass every twenty days or
very si* months. He must wait tine
ear, and then may be cut short or have
io pay at all. Storms, hail, drought,
tc., ruining his crop.
Still, that farmer is compelled to suport
and maintain half a dozen horses,
attle, sheep aftd hogs, farming I'mple*
ncnts, etc., through a long winter,
hat he may have the means of raisng
another crop to help feed our highy
enlightened law-makers and teachrs,
who in turn are sapping the very
ife blood of the farmer by their parsitctsm
and sycophantism, camouagcd
by our State Legislature.
Our last Legislature fixed the rate
f salary for teachers. Class legisition,
think you? If the Legislature
as the power and authority to fix the
'ages of one class of labor, it has the
ame power to fix wages for all classes
f labor.
The lesson I wish to inculcate is
ustice in decision and judgment in ouf
ntercourse and dealings with other
Don't think your prtufession or volition
is the only one that should be
onsidercd. The laborer is worthy
f his hire. We should all remember
hat the State gave us our education,
he only thing wc paid was the price
f an education, which is labor. Now
re office-holders, etc., slam if in the
see of the State (tax-payer) that you
ave not done enough for us. "Oh,
ustice, thou hast fled to brutish
