V.) m tr.tifactur r: "lir will havo niorr to s;iy in industry W .hall h.ivc shop rornmittf f y, L;ri''vanrr. com uit- t and wag- boards in the industry of tru fa turo "The rights cf th- vr!er inrludo rcasoridhlc wapos, hax6l on tin cost. it' livinir; rrason.iblo hours; adfiu.'stc Trovi!on for recreation and "iu ratlon. protection atr.iinst !" through picknos, accident and unemployment, and service annui- tirs. Labor honbl assert thst- as matters of in herent riKht, anl not as rharitablo concessa-ns.' Hut this is not all. Alone with thfs Kain. the workmen, ho insi.-1!, must consider the int r-sts of the institution tri y .are working for ju-t as thy expect their rnjloypr to consider their in terest. And reconizinir that this is probably r.ly an Intermediate step. Mr. Noyes adds: "With It. labor must learn to carry response Ijillty. If some time in th future the people frhould wijh to lo away with capital, labor should have ajuired uch training in the mangipremont of industry a to make that possible. I believe we will propra1.- through exolution and not i evolu tion." Here, certainly, is something for both employers and employer, l-ut particularly the latter, to think about. In Russia we have seen unskilled workmen trying1 to run industries under the authority of a bolshevist povernment, and making a mess of it. That will hardly bo tried in America. Hut there is sure to be progress in the direction of mor active participation (f labor In management. Our preat industries ma nentually become genuine partner ships of np'.tal and 1 bor; they may even become economic deraoeracb s, so to speak constitutent units of a great industrial state. Thv trend scorn's in that '.irection. All the mor reason then why wurkinpmen, instead of fig-htinc: "capitalists," should study their methods and cooperate with them, ac cepting; responsibility and developing by natural de grees go that th y will be ready for whatever comes. ANIMATED THRIFT STAMPS. Th- honor boy scout of the United States sold ?T7,16j 2.. north of Thrift and War Savings stamps In K1S. As a result he is known in his community as "the Animated Thrift stamp." This boy's record H an indicatioti of the big work bov scouts all oer the country have done in the W. S. S. selling campaign. The tot:il amount of sales made by th-s' American lads last year was t i 2,227.C60.r.". Over two million people signed cards pledging themselves to systematic saving as a re sult of boy scout efforts. Such work is woi th whilo in many ways. The money value sp iks for itself in the totals piled up There arc other gains to the boys themselves that come with th" regular effort put forth In a i;ood cause. The bovs who have done this success ful campaigning know a good deal about the stamps they eil. They have learned to invst some of their money in sound securities. They have an increased self-r-spct in th knowledge that they are helping to put across an important povernment proposition. Hoy ?cout and W. S. S. make a pretty pood com bination which will mean a straighter, bigger out look for the future business life of many of those boy?. SO TAFT AND ROOT FORCE COL. HOUSE TO PROTECT MONROE DOCTRINE. EH I Tor a specimen f the chronic and asinine disre gard of truth in which editors opposed to Tres't Wilson and his administration are wont to indulge, and the lengths to whi'h tin y will go to draw redlt. or steal credit, juite unnecessarily, from the presi dent or anyone associated with him, commend us to this, sent in by Mi irate correspondent who clip ped it from a republican rgan published not so very far away: . "AlotiK with the announcement comes th statement that the amendment which wn adopted was prepared by o!. i:. M. House. That is. of course, a bald attempt to she credit to Col. House for an amendment which was forced by republicans of th senate and by Mr. Taft and Klihu Hoot. "Vol. House may haw written the amend ment, but the credit for its incorporation do not belong to him or to Mr. Wilson but to Mr. Taft. Mr. Koot and count'e-s oth r Ameri cans, republicans and democrats alike, who mud s it churly known that without such . teption the constitution could not and would not be endors d." The reference is to the amendment specifV ally mentioning r-svr aticn of the Monroe doctrlre in the League ,f Nations covt nant. p:ito un ju s. ion ably in response to Ann ricm demands, to placate a popular misconception w hich dls'honest. or mi in formed critics had spread., but h irdly in r spouse to any very persistent demands from cithT Mr. T.tft or Mr. Hp? s ;e for the purpo.-e )f reinovina; that mtsconct-ption. which both assert d. ought to bo unnecessary, if Am r;c. r: so-cai: d tatc:;men had Vf-en hoi:st ami n-: p irpo. ly n.lsb-.uling. ."o give the credit to Mr. T;ift. and Mr. K.t. if jou like, or tu the "'uu:;tks$ ollur Americans." but ! t us eo how hard Messrfj. Taft and Hoot piim-ped for it, in what tone, nnd what respect they had for ' r publicans in the senate," whom the for mer particularly accused of "pleading protection of the Monro doctrine js an excuse for opposing the Jxacrue of Nations, rather than strengthening it." Het this from his New York speech: "Much of the .position to the Paris plan :'s purely political, designed to defeat the !e,-iL"j. rather than strengthen it. Much of It too results from mi-understnndinp of its pro-po;-.!.s because of the unjust, and untruthful eri:--m '.f thos- proposals, advanced by its critics, .bent upon killing lt. I find nothing in th- Paris covenant, as it stands (and that was tk. r a month avo, that would take away our notional soverirnty or that would destroy any of the principles of Monroe doctrine; it would rot force us to send soldiers and ships to fight abroad aruinst our will; it would not break down present ;arriT.s against immigration; it would not interfere with our tariff laws; it would not compel un to submit purely domestic ouestions to the decision of foreigners." That Is the manner in which William Howard Taft made it so hot for Col. House, that he just had to amend the Paris covenant, to read Monroe doctrine protection lnt it. Stood right back of the republicans in the senate didn't he? Now get this from Klihu Hoot: "While it may not be necessary, it is per haps better to make certain changes to placate opinion, especially in the direction of definite acceptance of the Monroe doctrine, though as I understand it, it is already the real basis of the instrument." Some ":lre--atert" this Elihu Root, in forcing ac ceptance of the Monroe doctrine upon the Paris conference, isn't he? He thought it better "to pla cate opinion." which' by Inference he admits to be opinion based upon misconception, spread by those wonderful "republicans in the senate, and other American citizens, republicans and. democrats alike," too bone-headed to see in the league con stitution an acceptance of the Monroe doctrine, un less it is so labeled, and the actual term used. For their benefit, and not to satisfy either Mr. Taft or Mr. Itofjt, Col. House drafted an amendment so labeling It, and we think, we see the peace conferees smilingly accepting it. while reflecting1 on Wie Amer ican opposition's shallow brains. If the above isn't enough, maybe this from George W. Wickersham, Mr. Taft's attorney general, while president, will be enlightening: "The League of Nations covenants are an application of the Monroe ioetrine to the affairs' of the world. It is not perfect, and will admit of amendment. It Is not claimed that It Is perfect. Sc-jrce any law ever was. I see no logic in th criticism of the league constitution so con sequential as to justify its defeat ?ven as it stands." That too is a statement a month and better old, so here are three republicans, probably as bright as th republican editor whom we have quoted above, who seem to be of pretty much the same type of blamed fools as Pres't Wilson, but., of course, that isn't the point. The point is, no difference how big the misrepresentation, or monstrous the lie; any thing to make it appear that the president, and those with him. "never do anything unless forced by the "l"s and Ood" opposition. Never was a more vic ious campaign of play upon ignorance, and for the promotion of ignorance which is misinformation well as non-information- indulged in, in all the his tory of mankind. Other Editors Than Ours SWITZI IRLAND AWAKE. ( Ioarlom InIeicmlent.) At a time when this country is lebating the avail ability of her splendid waterways for the benefit of the population as channels of communication and transportation, it is interesting to note with what thoroughness Switzerland is taking thought for the morrow, with an absolute decision not to be left again in the dependent position of before the war. Switzerland is absolutely land-locked, and 11 her embroidery and cotton manufactures and other products were forced to seek transit through neigh boring countries. This was sulhciently annoying in times of peace. In wartime it was far worse, for while supplies of various sorts would pile up at P.ordeaux or other ports, the French had many other uses for their rolling stock than carrying even foodstuffs to Switzerland. Now Switzerland has several fine lakes and both the Ithine and the Rhone have their sources in her mountains. Her idea is to build a canal from the one to the other, and do the ne-essary work on the river wUhin her borders; then if the Rhine is internationalized, that will give her a waterway, clear to the North sea. On the Rhone there is a bad stretch from the Swiss border to Lyons, but the French have expressed their willingness to cor rect the river here and make it navigable. Then, not only will the Swiss be able to reach both the North sea anil Mediterranean, but those two bodies of water will be linked by a channel capable of taking -.5C( ton barges; and the reduced costs of water transportation over rail will be reflected in the prices of the goods. Switzerland also expects to build a canal from ake Muggioro to the River Po, which tlows into the Adriatic; and if the projected Lake Constance Danube canal is built, opening the way to the Rai kans and the Rlack sea. the Swiss plan to make the Rhine navigable in its upper reaches as far as Lake "onstanco. to give her the benefit of that channel.

A dispatch from Salem says that 4 3 petitions for new roads have ! . ;i filed. In the same column there is a report from Huntington county of con tracts b-:ng let for 14 bridges. Johnson county com mission rs have awarded contracts for four new roads. Shelby coun'y commissioners have contracted for one road. Rartholomew county commissioners havt r-eived a petition for the construction of 11 miles of concrete rornl. leading to the Shelby county lira. Shelby county will finish the road to Shelby ville. Th" total distance Is ovr 20 mils. and the estimated cost is $7"v?,00''. The activities in. road and bridge work are con tained in on- day's reports. Similar reports from other sections of th j'ate have been received every day for soeral weks. The people are clamoring' for road and br'dges. Construction was held up so long it now p-Mitio-w :u piling up at an astonishing rate. It is obv:ou that all of the roads asked for can not be built th;.-. year. If they were. te tax rates n Indi.'r. i ccur.ti'-s would go ven higher than they are now. The Hoosier State Automobile association com plains acainst delays on th part of the Indiana hiirhw.iy - mmission. There rtr:st ve some basis for this complaint bcause the lcislature adjourned a month 'iL-i) and th romm'don is not yet organized for work. The members have been appointed but the dir ( tor ar.d the working force are yet to b named. Delay now will be costly later on. The commission is. needed to udvi-e with the county authorities and to tTect agreements whereby much needed roads will be constructed thu Ummer t "I'd had my trousers and jacket on under my dressing-gown," the old man answered, "because I knew the bed wasn't made up. That's what I wore except for the dressing-gown. I reckon I must have left that in the room. I wouldn't have gone back there for anything. My mind was full of those angry people. I wanted to go as far away from the Cedars as possible. I knew the last train from New York would be along about 3 o'clock, so I thought I'd go on into Smithtown and in the morn ing see this detective I'd been talk ing to. I went to Robert Water's house. I've known him for a long time. I guess you know who he is He's such a book worm I figured ho might beup, and he wouldn't ask a lot of silly questions, being selfish like most people that live all the tlmo with books. He came to the door, and I told him I wanted to spend the night. He offered to shake hands. That's funny, too. I didn't i ieei line snatting nanas wiin any body. I recollect that, because I'd felt sort of queer ever since going in the old room, and something told me I'd better not shake hands." Paredes looked up, wide-eyed. The cards slipped from his fragile, point ed lingers. "Do you realize, Mr. District At torney, what this man is saying?" Rut Robinson motioned him to si lence. "Let him go on. What happened then?" "That's all." Rlackburn answered, "except this long sleep I can't make out. Old Waters didn't get mad at my not shaking hands. He was too tied up in some book, I guess. I told him I was sleepy and didn't want to be bothered, and he nodded to the spare room off the main hall, and I tumbled into bed and was off almost before I knew it." Paredes sprang to his feet and commenced to walk about the hall. "Tell us he said, "when you first woke up?" "I guess it was late the next aft ernoon." Silas Rlackburn quavered, fumbling with his pipe again. "But it was only for a minute." Paredes stopped in front of Rob inson. "When he turned! You see!" "It was Waters knocking on the door," Rlackburn went on. "I guess he wanted to know what was the matter, and he talked about some food, but I didn't want to be bother ed, so I called to him through the door to go away, and turned over and went to sleep again." "He turned over and went to sleep again!" Katherine said breathlessly, "and it was about that time that I heard the turning in the old bed room." "Katherine!" Graham called. "What are you talking about? What are you thinking about? " "What else is there?" she asked. '"She's thinking about the truth," Paredes said tensely. "I've always heard of such things. Po have you. You've read of them, if you read at all. India is full of it. It goes back to ancient Egypt the same person simultaneously in two places the astral body whatever you choose to call it. It's the projection of one's self whether consciously or uncon sciously; perhaps the projection of something that retains reason after on apparent death. You heard him. He didn't seem to walk. He doesn't remember leaving the room, which was locked on the inside. His de scent of the stairs was without mo- lion as we Know it. lie had gone some distance before his mind con sciously directed the movement of this active image of Silas Rlack burn, while th- double from which it had sprung lay apparently dead in the old room. You notice he shrank from shaking hands, and he slept until we hid away the shell. What disintegration and coming to gether again has taken place since we buried that shell in the old grave yard? If his friend had shaken hands with him would he have grasped emptiness? Did his normal self come back to him when the shell was put from our sight, and he awakened? These are some of the questions we must answer." "You've a tine imagination. Mr. Parades," Robinson said dryly. His fat face, nevertheless, was bewildered, and in the eyes, sur rounded by puffy tlesh, smouldered a profound uncertainty. "I wish Groom were here," Par edes was saying. "He would agree with me. He would know more about it than I." Robinson threw back his shoul ders, lie turned to Ilawlins with his old authority. The unimaginative detctive had stood throughout, re- leasing no indication or his emo tions; but as he raised his hand now to an unnecessary adjustment of his scarf pin. the ringers were not quite steady. "Telephone this man Waters." Robinson directed. "Then get in communication with the orhce and put them on that end." Rawlins walked away. Robinson apologized to Silas Blackburn wlfh an uneasy voice. "Got to check up what I can. Can't get anywhere with these things unless you make sure of your llrst facts. I dare say Waters' story will tally with yours." Blackburn nodded. Graham clear ed his throat. "Now perhap wo may atk that verv miuorLant uuestion tv iv Certain members of the South Bend police department are no re specters of persons. And there are some persons who say that the police are not only not! respecters of persons, but that they are not respecters of anything else in general or in particular. But what has that to do with hair dressing, and hair dressing models? And again, what has hair dressing! and hair dressing models to do with: contraband whiskey? It has just this. The other day, Madame Swartz, who conducts a hair dressing estab lishment at the corner of S. Michi gan st. and W. Jefferson blvd., went to Chicago, and while there she bought a hair-dressing model. It Is one of those things used for fitting! wigs. After doing some shopping. Mad ame Swartz started for Houth Bend, carrying with her several bundles) and a handbag containing the toupe model. Nothing out of the ordinary' hap pened to Madame Swartz on her journey until the train pulled into! the New York Central passenger station, and there was nothing out of the ordinary that happened to the South Bend business woman until she got off the train. At the station was waiting sev eral eagle-eyed members of the po lice department.. r They are said to wait at the sta tion every night. And on this particular night the handbag carried by Madame Swartz looked very suspicious. To the minds of the officers, no one would carry a handbag unless it contained that which the law says should not be carried into this state. Right away the oflicers hurried up to the lady, and demanded that she allow them to search the handbag. Madame Swartz could not imagine why they wanted to do this, but be ing a lady, she submitted to the search. When the olticers found the head inside the handbag, bystanders say that they looked perfectly sheepish. Just like they had been fleeced. But they failed to find what they were looking for, so they went away like lambs. And on the same train a lady from this city arrived in South Bond, and she, too, carried a handbag, and In that handbag was some of the finest distilled article that one is able to rind in these piping times of pro hibition. But the lady with the contraband went away from the station, unmo lested, with the exceptin that an olficer helped her to put her baggage into a taxicab. C. J. COOPER. !
