the alternative to revolution.
laiKr Irogr:im.
The very phrase "labor govern
ment" frightens a pood many peo
ple whose thoughts immediately !!'
to all kinds of wild impossibilities,
with Russia in the back-ground of
their vision. But a labor govern
ment would probably disappoint
m.tny and delight others by being
pretty much he same a.s any other
eovernment in its general actions.
Of course, it would have on its pro
gram nationalization of biff indus
tries and many interdependent mea
sures, but this program, like the
program, of ull new governments,
would bo on paper. It is a very dif
ferent thing to talk of ideal politi
cal propositions and to put them into
effect. In the first place- a labor
majority In parliament would cer
tainly be faced with a strong oppo
sition, an opposition which would
include some of th best political
brains in the country skilled in pub
lic affairs, expert in parliamentary'
craft, and fully determined on some
general principles.
Would Split.
Jn the second place, the labor
movement Itself would immediately
be split by schism, because the ine
vitably moderate courses of those
who wero placed in responsibility
would be taken as traitorous by the
hot -heads of whom there woild be
a considerable number. The initial
difficulties of a labor government
thus become obvious straight away.
I tut thej' am initial difficulties only.
There arc others even more power
ful. The machinery of government in
this country heen built up care
tully and laboriously by generations
af effort, and it cannot be changed
r. less than a generation. This great
permanent machine of government,
which politicians have to operate,
would impose an automatic h'ck on
..ally violent changes.
Curbing: Iicry Ideas.
There i still a further i;. -ii'ial
onsideration namely. that the
4ieat responsibility resting on the
;ew labor cabinet would most o r-;.-.inly
produce an attitude of mind
ot at all in consonance with tiery
evolutionary ideas. Ministers would
forking classes.
And unless tbe fibre and common-
; Fene of nur race has hren climina-
which it certainly has not, no
labor government which did not vis
ualize the needs of the whole com
munity would remain in power in
the house of commons for more than
R few' weeks.
I believe that a labor government
In Hritain will come into power soon
er or later, and that it will endeavor
to survey the needs of the people- as
a w hole. I believe in its first period
It will not hold otflce very long.
Though its effect will ho moderate, I
it will sweep away a lot of cobwebs
webs from our present system of
government. It will put few, if any,
of its great projects into operation
at the first attempt.
Nevertheless, the experiment of a
labor government in Hritain will
probably do the country good. It
will do even more good to the la
bor movement, encouraging a sense
of responsibility and widening vision.
After that the labor government? of
the future will perhaps have bigger
opportunities and perhaps new and
more permanent powers.

w-Tlnv N"rdnln C'rrpnmlent
According to reliable information
obtained here today, large distilling
interests intend to raise the point
that the ten days' period after which
a bill which has passed congress
may become a law without the pres
ident's signature does not begin to
run until the bill is actually deliv
ered to the president in person for
his consideraion.
SuspnI Law.
If this contention is upheld, the
prohibition enforcement bill will be
suspended in mid -air and its oper
ation will be indefinitely postponed
as long the president's physician's
decline to permit executive business
to be brought before the president
for his personal attention-
The contention of the whisky in
terests will be that it will not be
sufficient for the bill to be deliv
ered at the white house before the
time will begin to run. It will not
be a compliance with the law for
n. messenger from the capitol to take
the hill to the white house and hand
It to Secretary Tumulty. These in
terests argue that time would not
hegin.to run if the bill was placed
on the bed by the stick president.
It is necessary, .according to these
interests, that the bill shall be
handed to the president in person
and received by him and that not
until he gets the bill in this way,
with the knowledge that it Is up to
him for consideration, will the ten
days' period start.

"Pefore taking Tanlac," said Mrs.

stomach got i 11 such a bad lix that
I could not eat anything but what

the pain. My condition was so bad
