Many of these corporation more prosperous than they hav 1 n in years. They enjoy, in some -os. a practical monopoly.

Governor Ritchie held the centre oi the political stage last week at the conference of Governors at the Vir ginia Hot Springs, and took the same position, with added emphasis, at .he supplementary conference of State Executives, which took place at the White House in Washington, on Mon dav. The White House conference was held with the President. Mem bers of his cabinet, and other prom inent ofiicials, including the Gover ‘ nors of fourteen S;ates,_ to consider the enforcement of the National Pro hibition laws. In his stand on both these occa sions. the Maryland Governor took the old. time-honored Democratic po sition. that all these questions are purely matters affecting the rights ot States, and were reserved to the Slates, to be decided as the severs. ‘ States wished to decide them, ami that the interference of the National Government in such purely domestic affairs, was unwise, and contrary tc every principle on which the union o the States was based. That it woulc. be practically impossible ever to si cure an effective enforcement ot any Federal law in a State where public sentiment was opposed to that law. i and that before Prohibition was tak en up and attempted to be enforced under a National statute, in a larg. number of States, and paits States, it was effectively enforced un der local laws, and that no troubi 3 had been experienced in securing t • large measure of obedience to the so called drv laws, under such circuit! stances. That the National interim ence had not resulted in real pro i. r bition. but on the contrary, had cam , ed such wide-spread disrespect of the whole svstem of so-called dry legis ’ lation. that in nearly all places wlunv local drv laws had been effective be fore the Federal laws were enaette all such legislation both local ana National was now practically ignoie He contended that it was to a gre extent useless tp attempt to enfoic. such laws under the circumstance and that the evil would increase rath i er than diminish, unless there was ; return in practice to the old sys.e . ot local seif-government. The result of the Governor's stron stand in favor of a return to the ol doctrine of States rights in all sue matters, has been to bring him to th front as a strong possibility if no. : probability, for the Democratic nom ination for the Presidency in 19- • Many of the leading men in both par ; ties are convinced that the best in terests of the people of Hie whole country will be subserved by a ic turn in practice to the old system o local self-government, and that a hr I should be called on the of the government at Washington. I recent years the power of the Feder al government has been increasing by leaps and bounds, and the reserve! rights of the States have been cor respondingly ignored, until now there seems to be no limit to what tin Nat.onal administration can do, an., very little real power, at the presen rate of progress, will soon tie icu u the State. Those who were at the conferences where so many of the Governor-- were present say that there was n>, uouot a.-- to me intellectual as wd practical superiority of Governor Kitcme —that ne stood head and shou.- ders above all the otners in every im portant particular, in looks, in prac tical common sense, in real know; ed„e of public affairs, both State ana National, as well as in scholarship and theoretical knowledge, there tuic no doubt as to his supriority, anu i mat it was acknowledged by all tha tlie Governor of Maryland was the ou. standing figure in both conferences His courage, 100, in expressing hi ! views on these important matters, where he stood almost alone, in th. presence of the President of the United States, whose guest he was who is the head of that party whit h-s always had as its cardinal arti ■ cle of faith a denial of the principle of Slate's rights, added to the drama tic force of his position, and not : few people believe that as the days gc by, and the time comes on for the Democrats, and those citizens who he lieve in a return to the practices and doctrines of the fathers, to select a j candidate for President of the Unit ed States, they will turn in overwhel ming numbers to Ritchie of Marylanu as the oldest and most courageous ex ponent of their views. PAUL WINCHESTER. 1 1921 DOG LICENSE LAW COST STATE 1137,620.75 Harrisburg, Dec. 15.—1 t cost the ; State of Pennsylvania $137,620.75 to administer the dog license law of 1921 in the first year in which the State had entire charge -of the work, this sum including s2j,- ■ 000 cash retained at the close of the ‘ fiscal year on November 30 to meet 1 cilia s which might arise.
