Entered at the PoetofQce at Alexan drift, Virginia, as second claaa matter STRIKE ORDER REVOKED Many yea^g the late David B. Hill made a speech in Brooklyn. Hi announced Ids platform in the be ginning of his address epigramati cally??4,'I am a democrat." 1 ht soft coal miners were equally a.1 laconic yesterday when they pro claimed to the world ''\\ e are Amer icans." These few words mear much. They are a rebuke to I. W VPs. and other treasonable horde> who are not Americans in spirit o* by birth, and show what we have always believed that there is.a wieb chasm between the great majority of workinirmen in the United State> and the undesirables who woult ride strikes in their purpose to o^er turn our republican form of gov* ernment. The. eyd of tht. strike came at ai opportune time. 11 was Armistice Day. when a large percentage o' Americans were celebrating th first anniversary of the capitulatioi of Gt-rmjiny. But while joy wa in the air a drizzling rain was pre ?vailing with every indications tha within a few hours a decided dro* in the temperature would be in evi = der.ee. The bins of many are lov and a cold wave would have prove' an unwelcome visitor while th miners' strike was on. The new of the revocation of the strike ol der was accompanied by a cheerinj announcement from the Weathe Bureau to the effect that the frigi: conditions in the west would caus .no serious meteorological incor.ven ienee in the eastern stales. Tlu ltlizzard was not intended for us. These dual blessings brought pleas antry everywhere. The , government, very properly immediately announced that, offieia* are ready and anxious to confe with the miners, and their srrievar ce?s will be investigated and relie* afforded in every case where I lies workers under ground shall hnv been found to be victims of injus tice in any particular. The miners havc. shown their pat riotism by placing their eountr first anil their organization secern*' They have announced that th?y ar< not defiers of law and order. ^ An exchange this morning tol the story in a picture. A map e> the United States was exhibite upon which the words "United Min< Workers ??f America" had ex ten dee across the print. "United .Min Workers" had been markeel out an the words "I'm it eel States" substi tuted. making the legend read "Uni teel States <-.f America." A mine stands by directing attention te? th? change. I'AR NUBILE FKATIU'M That Columbia is wide awak? a' last and means business is g-atify ?ing te> many who have time ovei and again asked why such delay ii deporting from our shores a certair element who have not eomt> anion? us to ei:je>y the blessings of oui fetrm e>f government, but. to elo ev erythitig possible to bring about ;> reign isf terror in our land. The authorities are new engage:! in the geoel work of weeding such out. Nor are they confining them selves to the small fry among this class, but the House etf Represen tatives has refused t?> sev.t Berger who has made himself offensive ti to the govern-mnt he has misrepre sented?- (n a thoughtless moment voters in one e>f the Wisconsin dis tricts elected this man to Congress. The vote for his exclusion was sig nificant, but one member voting to seat him.' Acting upon the prin ciple of the Ephesians after their temple hael been burned, we ?vil! not'mention thcvnani;. of this lone star, anel trust we will be more suc cessful than were the ancients in attempting to suppress the name of the incendiary. As a contemporary says, "the only criticism the country will ' make of the action of the House off Rt&rcs'cntatives in the /-ase of Vic-' tor L.- Berger is that one vevte was oast in his favor. On his own show ing. in his sj*eech of defense, he jus-, ti?<sd the verreikt. If he .escapes expulsion from the United States he may consider himself lucky. It is to Ve doubted if any of the 'Reds' arested in the recent raids, and whom the Government is threaten ing with deportation, went any fur ther, if as far,' in organized hostil ity to the country as did Berger j when we were facing' a great na tional peril. ? "Berger may have one just cause of complaint. He may have, the right to contrast his treatment with 'that of Senator La Follette. Tech inically the latter may not have of fended as directly against the law las Be'ger. But morally the Wis consin Seantor was fully as guilty. That he- still sits in the Senate i while Eerger is thrust out of th? House ma y possibly be due. to the fact that La Toilette's vote was needed by his Republican associ ates." INIMfiNANT. WORKMAN A workingman. -who signs his wme, publishes the following in a laltinTv.-fc paper: t4Tho undersigned was one of nany, if I may judge, indignant readers of (Jumpers' insolent and 'nupudent statement to the Ameii an people. Such an antagonizing ?reclamation as lie is credited with aving authorized to be published is luivalent to a declaration of in Suslric 1 and domestic civil war. It i plainly a question of how long he American prjf.Ie will stand the vtunny of labor agitators ;nd sup ioit them to the detriment of their 'amilies and the population in gen ?ral. It discredits the union. '*Now, its a labor man, let me tate this. Up until the war unions Vt re contrulled by law-abiding ??u-e loving citterns. who tool; ,-Me in the dignity of their local fg.nvizations. Hue to the reiume "?.ents placed upon labor and closei hop agreements, hundreds of unde iralOes were, of necessity, enrolled n the many unions, and. before we vere aware of it. our standards of .?urkmanship and efficiency were wired, our local unions thereby ing discredited and the oniy tot >ie state ment made as to the re lit of a man's working day bafort | :<d after the war being beiow 1 ' ir.
