The ranatlcal prohibition poli ticians and paid Anti-Saloon Leaguers, now that the success or prohibition Is in sight, are busllj engaged in looking for other jobs equally as soft, and we can look for an anti-cigarette campaign in the near future, that is if the money is put up. SAME OLI) ENEMY. The returning soldiers and sail- ors from France ami England tell the same old story; that the Eng- n,h hnvn no use for America or her people, and soldier and sailor, one after the other, repeat that, jhoro ivnrn rnnMnupl flclits between I the Americans and English, and be cause of that fact the troops could not be brigaded together. Yet the Evening Post doubts that there Is bad feeling in this country against England. ENGLAND'S TOOLS. The majority of the reports of the convention In Ireland appearing In the American press are filled with slurs of the Irish people anl their rights to freedom. They be.w all the earmarks of being doctored In London, and only emphasize the fact that the English propagandists in this country ate but hearkening to their master's voice. In their Tory eyes and hearts John Bull conies first and they are now busily fighting against America's rights oil the seas, rights in business and everything in which England wants to dominate. They are Intent on belittling American boys' part in the war, and to show that there is concerted action on the part of thf Anglophobia press, as styled by one of our local clergymen, the Loula vllle Times repeated verbatim the statement of the Louisville Herald, that England saved America from slavery and ruin in the war. This is the same press that was begging and clamoring Tor 100 per cent. Americans when wo wero at war with Germany. Why not be 100 per cent. Americans when issue. with England are uppermost?

To better appreciate the hold that Bolshevism has obtained upon East ern Europe, an understanding of Russian life in general is essential. Oppressed for centuries under the Czars, uneducated, grossly supersti tious, religious almost to tho point of fanaticism, the Russian peasant and worklngman could hardly call his soul his own. Then came tho sudden freedom, the Czar was over thrown and the proletariat turned against religion, looking upon the church as the Czar's instrument of oppression.

The true Catholic spirit Is shown by the True Voice, and we are In accord with It in saying wo have no desire to add to the troubles of the Y. M. C. A. at this time by criticism of Its army work In France. The "Y" has troubles enough of its own these days. Re turned soldiers are bitter In their. comments on the failure of "Y" Secretaries to measure up to their repsonslblllties across the was. We can understand how the ehortcom- nga of a few recreants would react me wont 01 uie wnoio orgam zauon. wnen a soldier nas oeen refused tobacco, matches or hot coffee becauso ho lacks the money to pay for them he has good reason to feel irritated. These are the things a soldier remembers and that he will make others re member in the future. Whatever the outcome of tho investigation that has been asked for tho Y. M C. A. as an army organization hasr seen its day. PRACTICAL DIPLOMATS. Under the above head the True Voico last week presented tho fol lowing views regarding tho peace conference and Its work: As the time approaches for the formal opening of the peace confer enco In Paris It is becoming morp evident that President Wilson Is at a uisaavaniage. ie nas no aue- jjuate means of securing publlcltvfand son, James Thompson, Jr., left for his proposals. Tho preliminary meetings are being held, but the world knows little about the dis cussions that are going on. The Trench have charge of tho publicity and they are giving out only the bare outlines of the questions that have been discussed. It is even reported that . President . Wilson plans to return to America and tour the country In order to get hia views before the people In a series of addresses. If in the conference questions are decided by a majority vote the American representatives will be in a small minority. The only hope of success seems to lie In prolonged discussions that will bring all tho - pMt,e8 tQ a practlcalIy unanimous declBon beforo Iorlual vote3 aro tho noc the UlLCb mill ULMIIUlUt UMIUI1K W , . .,,. -,., o41 gain something from the allied vic tory.

In the scramble for spoils American representatives are at .i gteat- disadvantage because they have nothlnc to trade. We still hope that President Wilson may win over the bargain hunters to his plan for a Just sot- tlement and a league of nations. , of the peace settlement. But that Is not their attitude. Tho war edst them relatively much more than It cost America. And they aro selfish enough to think that their advan- vugu uun auuum ug iu iujjuiuuu l tm . v.t. ntm.tlrl A I M vinrtl4tA I to uie sacriiices iney uuve mime, 'idealism was all very well in state ments as to why each nation was fighting.
