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
nest are feeing; ejected, one hundrvd
having during: the past few days
been told they were in the wrong1
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. Head, celt

: ERA OF EXTRAVAGANCE
! A. 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."' ?
We have on a former occiTsjoii
quoted an observation late
Riv-. Dr. John Hall, a: one time
nasto ? of the fifth Avenue New
Yr.rk. Presbyterian Church. .? This
-cod man said he enjoyed walking
Jong the principal streets of New
York during the Christmas season,
;arcing in windows at" displays'" of
loliday <^ooris and thanking God
here were so many things in the
AV-rlrl he could do without."
Wovds of wisdom these.
