TUESDAY EVENING. JANUARY I), 1917. YOST LAW SUSTAINED. *~p*H? decision of the United States Supreme Court in X the Webb-Kenyon law and West Virginia prohibition law cases comes at a most opportune time, for it clears away all legal doubt that has existed regarding the validity of the Yost law as it now stands and it opens the way for the legislature, which will convene Wednesday, to tighten up the law so that it actually will prohibit, assuming that the police officers of the state are honest and 'will enforce it. The Webb-Kenyon law is stated in its title to be an act divesting intoxicating liquors of their interstate character in certain cases and its provisions have the effect of preventing the shipment from a wet state to a dry state of liquor. It was passed over the signature of President Taft, who believed that it was unconstitutional. This view was also shared by Mr. Taft's attorney general, George W. Wickersham. But every inferior federal and state court fin which it was questioned sustained it and now the court of last resort has also put its stamp of approval upon it. : Acknowledgement of the validity of the Webb-Kenyon . act of necessity cleared away all doubts about the Yost law where it touches interstate commerce. It is now apparent that West Virginia has ample power to deal with the liquor question in its own way .without any fear of coming m conflict with the federal courts so long as it does not undertake specifically to forbid the individual use of liquor. i And that is a matter that can be gotten around by making it all but impossible to obtain liquor. The decisions in these cases are right in line with the tendency to recognize that the interstate commerce clause : is perhaps the broadest grant of power which the people tnade to congress in the Constitution. NINETEEN SEVENTEEN. fl-aHE political problems of this year, stated in terms ? of national legislation and administration, belong exclusively to the Democratic party. They will inaugurate a President?for a second term?in March; and they may be able to organize the House of Representatives in December. They already have and will retain control p of the Senate. I It will Jje their duty to conduct our foreign relations amicably and honorably, to administer our domestic affairs i economically and efficiently, and to provide revenues for the treasury equitably and adequately. They will find ample occupation. The Republicans also have work for Nineteen Seventeen. It is our duty to prepare for Nineteen Eighteen and Nineteen Twenty. The weaknesses of the party, as revealed by the results of election, must be overcome. The HKI organization must be strengthened and perfected?purged !if need be?and the party spirit must be stimulated for the contests which are to come. Freed from responsibility for national affairs, the Republican party nevertheless retains responsibility for the government of many of the states and for all of the important states. In these legislatures and in these state administrations the Republican party has the opportunity to demonstrate its character as a political organization, its efficiency as an instrument of government, and its value ?nd Usefulness to the people.

Lawson yesterday the rest of the country will manage to bear up. Truth to tell there were mighty few people who expected that anything important would bc'obtained from the eccentric Boston plunger. However, he says he knows that there was a leak on the i peace message, and that he knows where it was, but will I not tell. The committee conducting the investigation hat i i r t i j uiuau puncrs lor use in sucn cases, l nere would lx some satisfaction in seeing Thomas start off in tow of ai assistant sergeant at arms for some donjon keep to spend a while in silent contemplation of the dangers of contumacy. Lawson and a lot of politicians in both parties may take the view that this inquiry does not amount to much. They arc familiar with the fact that there is little that goes on of the character of the peace note that does not leak anc have come to the conclusion that this is just another instance. They overlook the fact, however, that this affaii began with serious reflections updn people in high place; people in whom the public of necessity must place greal trust. Now thef public wants these insinuations and pseudc accusations cleared up. And they want anyone, including Tom Lawson, whe | knows anything about the case to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Taking Into consideration the decision of the Supreme court on the Webb-Kenyou law and the fact thai the legislature Is to convene tomorrow It would be advisable for the folks who have been regular patrons of the bootleggers to begin right now to taper off. Advices from Washington are to the effect thai "leading North and South American experts" are working out a new international code to protect neutrals, The people ot South and Central America for some mysterious reason hate the people of this country heartily, but every time danger threatens they are glad to creep under our protection. The approach of peace in Europe evidently appears to thein to be fraught with menace to their national Integrity. Wall street has got over its peace "scare" and prices are again on the up grade. However, paper profits ol muuii ouuuue specuiaiorB are never Bare and just as soon as they get big enough to look good to the professionals something else will happen to create a bear market. Just now the stock market is a good thing tc stay out of. o Tonight the Chamber of Commerce will discuss fire prevention. It is an important question, but can scarcely be called a burning Issue in a town with a fire loss as small as this one has had In recent years. o It is reported that the advance Bale for the Greater Fairmont band concert which will be held at the Grand opera house Thursday evening is large. This is no more than was expected, Professor Vincent's admirable organization has admirers in all circles in this city and they will all want to turn out to show their appreciation ' f the good work the band has been doing. o One of the reports regarding the appearance before the "leak" investigators of Tom Lawson naively says: "The Boston broker could not give anything definite." Lawson has been in the public eye for many years, but although he lias always been lavish with promises and reckless with charges, he never has given out anything that could be classified aB definite. o?= Mackcnsen has taken another important town. Hindenburg, Mackcnsen and Falkcnhayn arc a wonderful ino. ijermany siiould lot them try their prowess on tho west front, where there is a foe worthy of their steel. We would then know whether they are as great as they seem to bo. SHORT AND SNAPPY.

The latest service to he ordered abolished is that between Ravcnswood and Spencer on the H. S. & G. branch of the Monongah division of the Bull! more and Ohio railroad. The postmasters affected by this order are evidently yrought up over it judging from the letters which they havo been writing to Congressman H. C..

These postmasters claim that they cannot handle the additional work without more holp, which the doing away with the mall clerks will Impose upon their offices.
