I believe in the United States of Amcr' tea as a government of the people, bp Ehjjl^' the people, for the people, ivhose just . powers are derived from the consent of ^?Sn? the governed; a democracy in a rcpublie, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign Slates; a perfect Union, one and inseparable, established upon those principles of freedom, equaljustice, and humanity for which American patriots ^BEn/iced their lives and' fortunes. I therefore believe it is to my country to love it; to support its Conslilu^un; to^obcy its laws; to respect lis flag; and to defend it EIS!E:of the best.editorial pages written in the English ^B&flanigu&ge is that of the Saturday Evening Post, a ^Kblication devoted largely to amusing a couple of million Holers each week, but which performs notable service in ^Ernhg'. frauds and puncturing shams with a dash which ^K|es:,an ^impress upon the most careless mind. A great K1 of7the strength of that editorial page is due to the ^Ktcth'at the man who Dresides over il is one of the onset rl and thinkers in America and the additional circumthat he can afford to, and does, have most of the |which he printes written by authorities upon the subfile! issue of this week some space is devoted to the ion of the mining industry in Great Britain. The r in full is as follows: -fit is.not lmprohable that England will go on :p government ownership of the country's coal gtaes. There have been comprehensive hearnga; there Is a vigorous agitation; in view of fiSVpresent drift over there, nationalization, lif government ownership, looks not improbV-The gist of It Is that before the war at least niners were poorly paid?twenty-five shillings tweek yrAs the adult average, the secretary of the-Miners' Federation says; four hundred tad ten dollars a year, says another report. As l.rule they were very badly housed, v.-Certainly that was a had situation. Hut the svidence seems to show that the big trouble ^Hfjrfth'the British coal industry was merely bad ^organization. It shows several thousand indiVidual mine owners normally or often engaged in what the chief inspector of mines?a liberal-minded person too?calls cut-throat competition in selling coal, hack of effectual coordination or consolidation, in his hide Ient, prevents enhanced p.-oductlon and diminished.dost of production and entails waste. .In'.government ownership?with the great ilitlcal power of organized labor in England -the miners see a short cut to better wages, ith ihe deficit charged up' to the National reasury. Thorough and efficient rcorganizaon'of the industry under private ownership ad-management would give as good wages ing them as a whole, American miners are well paid ey are comfortably housed, measured by the English ra, so that part of the article has little bearing upon nation here. But what the writer has to say about l?;of cut throat competition and the drawback of a ^cooperation applies in this country with quite as force as it does over there. American mine owners do not want to go through the Step' through which the British mine owners are now hey.will strengthen their regional, slate and national rations to the point where they dominate the inland then they will employ experts to study all Hffiical' problems. And when we say technical Bts we mean the question of what percentage of the received for coal should go to mine labor, and iy in which labor should be treated to keep it comte and contented, as much as what systems of ventilire the-best and what are the most effective marketing The whole thing is one problem.

Next year it will haw to be increased even more than it was during the early months of the wonderful year of 1918. Every one knows that this would be impossible under the system common here before die war in which there was cut throat competition between operations on the same spur track and between different regions. There must be much more study of the coal situation on a national basis, a reduction in cross hauling, better distribution of information about market conditions, more frankness and a higher level of intelligence in mine management if this country is to be preserved from the danger of nationalization. But before we can have any of these things there must be a more general appreciation of the value of the operators* organizations. . o EDUCATION. CONNECTICUT is a great and simple lesson by examnlfc to fvprv Stilt# tnrl ronrtmiinitv in armiiv. ing of wealth. It is one of the smallest states. It is not rich in natural resources as compared to other states. Yeti Connecticut in acquired produced wealth is among the first. It heads all states in 11 important manufactured items used the world over. Connecticut is not only the birth-bed, but the cradle of the world's manufacturing methods as we understand them today?interchangeability of parts and the application of steam and water power in a large way. High in the history of Connecticut's contribution to the world's most useful inventions are the names of Whitney, Howe, Colt and Goodyear. The basic reason for Connecticut's great industrial wealth, and from which all other states may easily take example, is this: From the earliest colonial history Connecticut saw public education as an investment. From its very beginning it provided free primary education, and higher education by the founding of Yale University in I 701. In 1786 the state of Connecticut acquired a tract of land in northern Ohio known as the Western Reserve, in which Cleveland is located; it sold this some years later and invested the money in public education. It has ever since pursued public education to a point of almost public extravagance. Even today Connecticut children spend more days of the year in rchool than those. in any other state in the Union?about 187 days in a | school term as compared with a general average of 134 days the country over. In Hartford, the principal city of Connecticut, are many model manufacturing plants and other public and semipublic institutions of the highest order. It had well paved streets, ample park systems and all the devices of a well ordered municipality when other municipalities were just; beginning to think about them. And last of all it had the wealth and the willingness to pay for them. This city of Hartford, together with the state of Con- \ necticut at larcre. in what has been arrnmnluheri in tl,e fane I of natural difficulties, is an example in the development of | its people, that public education is the best investment, an ] investment in men and women. It is an example that every dollar we are required to pay in taxes for school purposes will return to us many fold in wealth and general good order. o General Pershing had a great day of it In London yesterday, making speeches, pinning decorations upon British generals and attending receptions tendered by the beauty and the chivalry of the mighty empire. If Pershing does go in for politics after he gets back here he will have most of his stay at home opponents at a disadvantage in the matter of poise and aplomb. However that is no sign that he would get the most votes. The American people never took very strongly to public men who were too sure of themselves. o Judging by what little the senators who have been to see Mr. Wilson have said after their calls at the White house, there are some things about the Shantung affair which have not yet been given to the public. It is possible thai, the Japs did not gain all they are popularly believed to have gained. The secrecy that is being maintained with respect to this will enrage Senator Johnson, of course, but it will be well for the rest of the country to remember that they have politics and politicians in Japan too, and that some of the politicians know how to play the game with a skill that would win great admiration in this country. o There are four avowed candidates for the Democratic nominations for city director, but the convention which will be held this evening will be under no obligation to confine Its choice to those four. The door of opportunity swings wide open and the chances are that there will be quite a large number of men put in nomination for the suffrage of the delegates to the convention. In nominated both March and Pershing to be full generals and Benson and Sims to be admirals President Wilson seems to be bent upon letting the factions ir. army and navy fight out their own wars of precedence and recognition for the work done. Perhaps that Is the better way. The Spanish war left us'tn the navy a most demoralizing controversy which had Its roots in the mutual jealousies of naval cliques, and it is to be hoped that we will be spared having the departments involved in such affairs this time. o It is most unfortunate that at a time when the nation is on the edge of a timber famine that such great forest conflagrations as the one raging In Montana and Idaho should have been permitted to get a start. Billions of dollars worth of timber has been destroyed in this country through the crass carelessness of men who go into the woods. Every forest Are is a crime against posterity, and some time this will be recognized to the point where those responsible for starting fireB will be severely punished.
