This amendment has gone the way of every other MARCH 2 2. 1919. THE NEW PRICE LEVEL. .Many people who keep hoping that prices will drop to fcomcwhere m-nr their pre-war level base this hope on tho fact that our currency ystem at present is high ly inflated. Thi Inflation is bound to .stop soon, they trg-ae. Then, with lers money and credit' available, the price of nearly everything will go down accordingly.; Now, our currency is tvitainly inflated, admit prof. Irving b isher of Yale. TPjt he does not agree that there is polng to be any let-up. The government tried to lorcc a deflation after the Civil war, he recalls, by re ducing tho quantity of greenbacks Wi circulation; de pression ensued immMjiately, and congress had to for Idd any further reduction. -Against any considerable reduction in bank credit," he nays, "we lind the hob? business community in arms." And without such a reduction there'ean be no general fail in prices:. There la a 'world-wide cans', too, operating to main tain and even to continue swelling the general volume of credit. Deposit banking, he points out, has in creased gre.itly during the war, in response to gov ernment demands In all the warring countries, and it Will increase vastly heafter. Money goes out of cir culation and out of unprofitable hiding places into bank vaults, and there becomes a basis for new cir culating credits. Kven the Chinese and the people of India are learning. This new habit will lead to a great currency expansion. "It is as if a new source of gold supply had been discovered." Nobody then need talk hopefully of the prices of 1913 and 1314. It is futiie to try to bring them back Buyers have been trjirg it, with insignificant results. There is a new high price level, maintains this ex pert, and it will prove to bo a stubborn reality. Tho clever business man, he .ays, is not the one who waits to buy raw matrrials or manufactured articles he needs, but the one who accepts the new price facts arid act accordingly. This testimony gives rtrons support to the iuy now movement already under amendment that haa been inducted Into the consti tution since Khode Island tardily came in on the original. This is a republic, basically democratic, and we can have anything in the constitution that we want, when consress so resolve:-", submits Its resolutions to the states, and three-fourths of the state legislatures approve. That is all there is to It. We can put It into the constitution, following that process prescribed in the constitution itself, if congress and a three-fourths of the states should declare, that no citizen should have than one eye. No cheaper brand of sophistry was ever indulged in by any one, than that of the anti-prohibitionists, seek ing to bolster up hope against the amendment, and its eventual effectiveness, by talking its unconstitution ality. An infringement upon the "police powers of the states" is it? That is what the south, and even the supreme court said of the fugitive slave law, but that was a statute, not a constitutional amendment and a supreme court decision was set aside, and a statute upheld by four years of bloody war, and then a con stitutional amendment, which taught a lot of "states rights" gentlemen that secession doesn't pay. We wonder if Uhode Inland means to secede if she fails to have the prohibition amendment junked; the sweet little thin. If she decides to press the matter it will be a ca.se of real interest, both In the court and in the aftermath. Few citizens, however, un-be-fuddled'by booze, will lie awake nights to worry over tho outcome. Only those to whom the "wish is father of the thought," and occasional lawyers as they "straightway dream of fees," have the least doubt but that the amendment will stand for all time. aerft-i pna k ne.-r the Cedars and goes to tie house, whore he meets his rousln.

A transport recently docked in New York reports that while at sea It received a wireless telegraph message from an other vessel, the UritLsh steamer Pollac. A member of the Pollac.'s crew, had been taken suddenly ill. There was no physician aboard, so the cail for help was cent out by wire!es. Tho doctor on the transport was given the symptom. He diagnosed the case and nt bac-t a wireless mes sage explaining the -proper treatment to be followed. The two ship kept in touch, the doctor on the one receiving- hourly reports from the tick man on the other. In two days marked improvement was reported and the last message indicated rapid recovery. Of course, if a surgeon's hand ha.d been needed or certain unavailable medicines had been essential to Having signed the armistice to avoid a most awful licking, Germany is now wondering whether it wouldn't have been easier to take the! licking. Surely there ought to be a war medal for the veter ans who have gone over the top in all these war fund campaigns. Turkey must be very much subdued. Haven't heard a gobble out of her for six months. Other Editors Than Ours it GOODRICH AXI THi: SOLDIKUS. (Indiana Dally Times.) Gov. James P. Goodrich demonstrated to the people of Indiana exactly how much regard he has for re turned soldiers Saturday when he refused to receive a concurrent resolution from the legislature making it compulsory for returned soldiers and sailors to have the. opportunity of accepting or rejecting the oil inspec tion jobs created by the legislature. The governor not only disclosed by his refusal to accept this resolution that it is his intention to use these oil inspection jobs for the perfecting of his politi cal machine, but he demonstrated that his word could not be relied on, even when it referred to the carrying out of republican platform pledges. In a luncheon address to members of the republican legislature at tho Columbia club, Jan. 15, Gov. Good rich said: "I am asking them (the legislators) to take off my hands and place in safety tho department of oil." etc. The legislature, in spite of the protests of thoe who opposed tho governor, did not "lake oft his hands and place in safety" the departmert of oil. Instead, by means of an "Interim" measure It provided thousands of dollars for oil inspection by politicians whose ap pointment the governor can control. The governor did not'veto this bill. Put when, several days after, an opportunity came to the governor to require that there "soft Jobs" be given hotel otücf, and how later Mr. Hose took the girls into the hotel cafeteria and treated them to chocolate sun daes, all last Tuesday night has al ready been told, but the thanks of the girl candidates and the other members of the sorority, wrought in poetic form and dedicated to the genial Mr. Pose has never been male public, and we are permitted to give it a first run production. Here it is: "Tuesday night at half past six. We made three girls do some awful trick., Dil our sorority! "We made them don the porters' I suits, And carry the bags and shine the boots, Dil our sorority! "It is "Katherlne! Hartley!" he called. He heard running steps upstairs. Katherlne leaned over the banister. Her quiet voice reassured him. "Is the doctor with you?" He nodded. Paredes yawned and lighted a cigaret. He settled himself in an easy chair. Hobby and Dr. Groom hurried up. Katherine led them down the old corridor. Two chairs had been placed in the broken doorway. Graham sat there. IK arose and greeted the doctor. "Nothing has happened since I left?" Hobby asked. Graham thook his head. "Katherlne and I have watched every minute." m Dr. Groom walked to. the bed and for a long time looked down at Howells. Once he put out his hand, luickly withdrawing it. "It's simply a repetition," he said ! at last, and his voice was softer than its custom, "it may be a warning, for all we know, that no one may sleep in this room without attract- .i .u.. , i.

Graham touched his arm with a,:: odd reluctance. "fitting here for so long I've been i thinking. I have always, been ma terialistic, too. Tell me seriously, doctor, do you believe there is any psychic force capable of killing two men in this incisive fashion?" "No one," the doctor answered, "can say what psychic force is ca- for which Pabjo of doing, b'ome scientists have started to explore, but it i-i still un i charted country. From certain that as it may, we enjoyed tho joke. As did you, is the only hope Of our sorority! . "And this is the way we take to say. We enjoyed the -cream you did pa y.

Since it waslt returned soldiers and sailors, the governor refused chiefly a matter of careful diagnosis and special treat merit tho directions were easily given at long dis tance. II re is a use for the wireks w hich it Is strange no one has practised before, it is one not likely soon to be forgotten, however. - Kven though long distance diagnosis may not be the best kind, it i- certainly bet ter than none when be e currency. to deprive the politicians of their "pap." , At the same luncheon where Goodrich made the statement quoted above, he was hailed by "Indiana's greatest war governor." It is significant that the hail ing was done by John C. Ruckelshaus, a republican politician of the old school. Gov. Goodrich may be the "greatest war governor" from the viewpoint of the politician, but would Morton ever have turned down the hoys who saved the nation Does our sorority! "Just say the word and we'll make you, Tho only male member of our crew, Will our sorority! "Wo need a mascot every day Especially one whose willing to pay. Does our sorority! "With these few words, we'll say adieu; We'd lie to initiate you too In our sorority!"

Every now and then Frank Pill, the Nutwood poet, just has to have horrible lor those of us who knew he had no chance. As I watched beside him I used to wonder if such vio lent agony could ever drift wholly into silence, and when we had to tell him finally that the fight was lost, it was beyond bearing." "If these men had been found dead without marks of violence," Graham said, "I might consider such a possibility. Irrational as it seems." "Irrational," Dr. Groom answered, "must not be confused with impos sible. The marks of a physical vio lence, far from proving that the at tack was physical, strengthens the case of the supernatural. Certainly you have heard and read of pic tures being dashed from walls by invisible hands, of objects moved i about empty rooms, of cases where human beings have been attacked by inanimate things heavy things hurtling through the air. Some scientists recognize such irrational hU Fay.
