this because we believe that Mr.
Fordney always has been correct in
the? positions he has taken on ..public
matters. There arc, for instance-,
features of his tarifT hill that seem
more than dubious, and his American
valuation plan requires a great deal
of defense. Hut Mr. Fordney com

differ with him strongly and at times
question seriously the wisdom of hi-
opinions. ior throughout tl:e almost
quarter of a century of his work in

member from the Fight Michigan dis

age of his convictions. He has stood
honestly by his beliefs and principles,
lie has not trimmed, lie has been a
man. And as he has gained in ex
perience, he has become an outstand
ing public servant and has dune good
woik for his nation and his state.
A No, and this is no small matter,
Mr. Fordney has given Michigan
piideful prestige and influence in

However that may be, the fact remains that the Railroad The bloody happenings at Ileum
Board is a lawfully- established tribunal of adjudication; it pro-111-, classify umFu- only one Anglo-

in i)i:riAN( i: or the law
Notwithstanding frequent assertions that the American peo
ple are showing a tendency to look with leniency upon lawlessness
the fact remains that the American people are the most law abid
ing1 of any in the world. They recognize as the fundamental piin
ciple of American institutions that this is a government by 1 iw
and not by men, and that liberty depends obsolutely upon the
maintenance and enforcement of law. This being true there can
be no hope of ultimate success of a general railroad strike in de
fiance of the decision of the Railroad Labor Hoard in the matter
of railroad wages.
It may be readily admitted that perhaps the Railroad Labor
Hoard in its decision did not reach exact justice, for exact justice
is impossible as long as human intirmatives continue. But it may
be safely asserted that the decision of the Board, after due con
sideration of all the facts and circumstances, is a far nearer ap
proach to justice than can be attained bv any other means or

administration perfect is quite likely, but it is the best that has
ever been accomplished for the general welfare. It substitutes
legal decisions based upon evidence in the place of agreements
forced by arbitrary power on the one hand or exacted under the
threat of distress and devastation on the other. The country is
presented, therefore, with the question whether it will be gov
erned by lawful procedure or by mob rule. There can be no ques

ple will take.

When twenty of them have been accumulated they can be ex
changed for a Treasury Savings Certificate that in five years will
be redeemed by the United States for $25. That means that your
money will have earned interest at 1VL w cent per annum, com
pounded semiannually. Other Savings Certificates in $100 and
1,00Q denominations may be bought for $80 and $800, respective
ly. An individual may own as much as $5000 worth of those certifi
cates of the series of any one year, and may then buy $5,000
worth of the next year's series, and so on. There is no better in

savings bank, and the security of the principal is beyond question.

WHAT A RELIEF
France is to send a financial commission this month to the
U. S. for the purpose of arranging the refunding of the French
debt to this country. A British commission will also come at an
early date, and the end of the year may well sec about seven
tenths of the total foreign debt put in negotiable form, with in
terest payments assured, and a date for final liquidation arranged.
With negotiations concluded with the two principal debtor nations,
it should not prove a difficult matter to take up the question with
each of the other countries in turn and speedily convert the notes
now held by the Treasury into securities that may be handled in
the future as Congress may direct.

considers it contempt of court.
