UNREST SUBSIDING As will be sec-n by an tH'-cle on j the first ^ pa^e of the Gazette, ac-j cording to a Washington correspon- j dent, the recent unrest in labor cir-1 cles is subsiding, and most of those who were recently unreasonable and defiant are now clothed and in their right minds. . The American Federation of La bor, which, objects to being1 looked upon as unpatriotic, is engaged . in house-oleanin-jr, and many radicals who ensccflts^.^fedntgelvey-in^their nest are feeing; ejected, one hundrvd having during: the past few days been told they were in the wrong1 shop. ' A nev spirit is now .being inject- I ed into the laboring ranks of the J country, a&d the Federation of La-1 bor wants it understood that they"j are Americans and ready to stand by the, laws and institutions of the United States. The Federation announces that their organization is no place for Bolshevists nor an archists. It has also attacked the leaders in the recent steel strike. Years ago it was predicted that radical labor,headers would get into the American Federation not for the purpose of improving the condi tion of the? workingmen of the coun try*, but with the, determination to ? secure the.-fa-hip. handle in order tr' wreck our government and brinr distress upon the nation. Jt vvilV afford gratification to ail to" know that tin* organization is wide awake and that if is now engaged in clear i'tg it? ranks of undesirables. Co lumbia is also awake to the fact that thugs of other climes have invaded the United States for the purpose of sowing discontent among us and eventually loosening the foundations of the greatest govern nent upon the earth.

Mitchell Palmer, who is en gaged in a war /upon the high ,cost of living, has Riven out certain irules which are practical, and which he belie1'ss will slowly lower the present high prices of both necssi ties and luxuries. Among other things he says: "Stop this nation wide saturnalia of extravagance." We do not adopt the philosophy of Diogenes, who prowled about the streets of ancient Athens attired in -a single garment and who sicpt in a 'tub. His aim was to renounce everything unnecessary, and upon seeing a boy drink water from his hand he threw away a cup he had previously Carried. On the night Alexander the Great was dying ' in Babylon after a debauch I'iogo^eE was in the pangs of dcalh the -ve sult of eating too much raw'beef for his""supper."' ?
