Grave differences of opinion exist among lawyers
as to whether die Congress has a constitutional right
j to impose faxes on states and their instrumentalities. In
!*? anticipation of the debate on the revenue bill when it is
to (be Senate. Hon. Philander C. Knox of Penn|
SyhnSua made an exhaustive study of the question and
PffiffrrfoTT his views to his fellow Senators in order that
may be given thorough consideration before die
? "Rie conclusion that Senator Knox reached it that, in
I of war Congress can levy taxes .on state securities and
sinks of state officials. His argument, in brief, is
ftrfrr the Constitution Congress has die exclusive right
dare war; die states are denied every means to precanry
on. or terminate war; they can not even defend
selves, except in case of sudden invasion; it is the duty
t Federal Government to protect the states and rnaina
republican form of government in them, and it is
to impose such obligations upon the National Goveraand
then deny it the right to subject its wealth to an*
I share of the burdens of the common defense.
ie importance of this matter is shown by the fact drat

IN an address in the House while die bill making appropriations
for the Department of Agriculture was unde>
consideration Representative Sidney Anderson, of Minnesota,
submitted comparative statistics showing that if the
price of cotton were fixed 2d a point comparable with the
fixed price of wheat during die four years preceding the
war, die price of cotton today could not exceed 25 cents
a pound to the fanner. We shall see what the administration
that denounces sectionalism will do for cotton.
In 'Washington they expect an early reply to President
Wilson's note of inquiry to the German chancellor regarding
his peace overture. And a glance through the
1 war news this morning more than supports this belief.
If Germany has any hope whatever of saving the sitnation
through diplomacy she will have to hurry.
It la not only here that the loan subscriptions are
coming in slowly. .Statements made at the Treasury
department last night indicate that the same condition
-ertains all over the country except, of course, in those
.ountlcs and big cities which had the foresight to erect
War Wort organizations which keep constantly at work.
These organizations "went over" the very first week and
they are already busy with the combined drive for funds
' which will come immediately after election. As the
j community work will by no means stop with the end
i of the war there will have to be more of these War
Wort organizations before we are back to normal conditions.
I It 1b mentioned as a possibility that before the end
j comes Germany will be left alone to fight the armies
! under Marshal Foch. It seems too much to hope for,
I but It cannot be denied that this would be an example
j of retributive justice which would Stand long to warn
i future generations against the dangers of the superman
nonsense. _
London newspapers and French statesmen are denouncing
the continuance of the German policy of destroying
towns and ravaging territory their armies are
forced to leave, but it is scarcely possible that these
outrages are as great now as they were in the sprfnj
of 1917 during the Hindenburg retreat. And the hardei
they are pushed the less time they will have to devote
to the work of destruction.

By the way, what has become of that movement
started by the Board of Affairs to arrange for cooper

suitable memorial to the Marion county lads who ar?
killed in action?

Judging by descriptions that have been cabled ovei
the Hindenburg line was the last word in military engineering.
But it could not stop an army composed o:
free men inspired with what the Germans would call
a will to victory.
