~UNSEATED~ CONGRESSMAN
It is often said we do some
strange things in this country?es
pecially in Congress. Nearly every
body knows that the seat of Victor
Benger, the Socialist member elect
from Wisconsin, is being contested
on the allegation of disloyalty dur
ing the wa.r But nearly everybody
does not know that while his scat
remains vacant Mr. Burger contin
ues on the payroll of the govern
ment. A Washington dispatch
states that the monthly salary check
is sent regularly to Mr. Berger and
that in addition he has received
considerable sums for mileage and
clerk tfire and is given the franking
privilege. When he add to this the
expenses of the special committee
which is investigating the right of
the Wisconsin man to sit in the
House, we must conclude that ho is
rather expensive luxury.
virkuB. .TT... .d mod mo do odoh
In this connection the Philadelphia i
Inquirer assks, ''When is a Congress-:
man jy>t a Congressman? That is;
the naliural query which wiii arise!
in the Benger case. Under th piles
of. the House his salary mu be.
paid because his election was certi
fied from his district. But if
should be decided that he is ineligible
for membership in the House, wouldji
the money he has received for salary
be returned to the Treasury? No,
not unless Mr. Berger elected to
send it to the conscience fund. It
is .probable that he . takes the viewi
that as he was elected to Congress
he is entitled to tho pay of a Con
gressman. The common sense plan
would be to withhold the >. iy of a
memiber whose seat is jf
he is seated, then ho isiclearly en-,
titled to his pay, but i! he is de- J
clared ineligible there ii no sound
reason for paying him for services
which are not rendered.
"But laws and rules are to. the
contrary. Even in the case of a con
test between two men for one and,
the same seat, the salary is paid to
both the victor and the vanquished
?at least in the case Vhere a sitting
member is deposed. With charater
istlc generosity we give a sort of
consolation prize to the loser.."
SENATOR MARTIN IMPROVES.
Senator Martin, who has been ill
for several months was reported
yesterday by his colleague, Senator
Swanson, as being much improved.
"I have ju9t returned from Char
lofctesville after a visit to Senator
Martin," said Senator Swanson, -'I
found him greatly improved and,]
getting stronger each day. As soon
as the weather gets cooler, he wild
be able, I feel sure, actively to re
sume his work in the Senate.".
The above announcement will be
i'ead with pleasure by Virginians
who have lately been manifesting
anxiety concerning the senior Sena-^j
tor's condition.
UN AMERICAN
We cannt believe that labor lead
ers who had talked about a general
Tailroad strike to compel Govern
ment ownership represent the sane
?mass of intelligent American work
men says the Baltimore Sun. "But
they injure labor by such foolish
and wild outgivings. The principle
of force which they propose to in
voke will not frighten the American
people into compliance with their
demand; it will tend to solidify
them against it because it sets up
an un-American method of deciding
public questions dangerous to aft in
terests and all classes, to organizad

be swept out of existence as by a

' "The railroad .workers have: a

right to say that the country shall

OPPOSES BLUE LAWS
"We all want to make Richmond
a bigger and better city, but we do
not want to make it a better placc
to live in by putting any more 'biue
laws' on the statute books" declared
Rabbi Edward N. CaliSch, of Eeth
.\habah Synagogue, speaking befpre
7.000 people at the band concert and
community sing at Byrd Park Sun
lay afternoon.
"The desired end can be accom
plished by developing civic happiness
which comes from a spirit of sym
pathy and consideraiton of each in
lividual for the rights of the others."
continued Dr. Calisch. "The war did
?i great deal in engendering com
munity spirit and you are showing
hhat you have caunht the new spirit
>y attending in such large numbers
iust such gatherings as this."
Just at this moment six airplanes,
