Or.e cf the most dramatic inc-.der.ts in all labor
h'ftory occurred on Saturday at Irciianapolis when
4. COO bitter, anry, flhtlnc. hatimc men were turned
from open corrhat to an orderly and reasonable
convention by the presence of a gray haired woman
who ra'-sed her vo!c and stilled tht pandemonium.
Pryan, In his youth, f.ery ar.d full ? ideals, won
a rreslder.tla.1 nomination from a clo-erln throng
that only awaited the torch of er.thutom to lnspiro
th!r confidence and be I o arrc. in a mic'i1 mo
ment, kvo'.vn as a great oiator.

tion of union r.r?an!zi'hn. Th delegates r
divided and th" quarrel m.Jfht hav easily lwl to th
permanent disruption of what Is the larret labor
t r:a nidation of this country.
A disintegration of th miners' union would b the
preat. blow to orcanizd libr wnlrh could hap
pen and would weaken the powr of i bodies basd
f.pori the prinejjd of col1ectie barpalninc:.
Harf of the dl"iratT Jeered snd jelld and rund
th" oftlorrs of tint convention. The other half
yelled In ans-nver and the entire convention was thi
.on of wild diaorder and confusion.
Thon there walked to th platform a litt!, whlte
bnlred. woman who denies her 92 years by a
rpri-?htlin-- o-f walk and a power of voic that car
ried to the farthest part of that prreat hall.
Quiet was Instantly rf.stord. Men who had
vursd each other a moment hfore listnd to the
nnnacr of this aei-i woman who must have seemed
a .strancr f;trure in this reat body of men who had
com from cvry part of th nation where coal is
found. rouj?h m"n who have worked Ion? undr
ground and who achieved local leadership through
physical prowess.
Tnat moment savfrl tho mihers union for the
mn who listened knew tht they received a me.s
sage which they might reject but whlrh SOo.ooo
mn back in thir homes would not reject.
Many a senator who prlde.s hims!f upon his
power of oratory who jrlorlef? in th power of
h!.f own voire would have traded much of his fame
for such a victory.
Mother Jone, for over 60 years a leader in In
dustrial struggles, would give them the reelp for
leadership, If they aked.
She won It by a consistent course of sincerity.
Not one man of the 4,000 who were eharjrinr: each
othr with personal ambitions, with aelfish motives.
( ven thought of charging thi woman with any aim
rave the welfare of the organization of which fhe
in a part.
In a life time she hafl never weakened and never
compromised. She has always been found on the
Fide- of the people with whom she cast her lot. She
has always proved her sincerity by sharing tho pri
vations or sacrifices of those for whom Fh pleads.
That is the reason why, at 92, she travels from
canp to camp, her voice l.i heard when that of
elected leaders is received with suspicion and
I-ortunate is the ceuse which ha the service of
such a le.ader. Whn ?reat polltcal parties, built on
irinciples, develop characters such .a hers which
inspire universal confidence, they will not he driven
to tbo backroom conferences as means of victory.
Whatever men may think of the right or wrong
of the cause of unlonlsr.i there can be but admira
tion for the woman who at 92 has achieved a lead
ership that i.s greater than any elective office In the
organization of nearly a million members. Beside?
her ilc-ory, other triumphs of oratory seem trivial
and commonplace.
"I hope there will be more women In public life
and there will 'be before my administration Is con
cluded," wflf? the prophecy and tho promise, made
by tho president to a delegation of th" league of
Women Voters who called at the White House.
Whereby the president will gain no great fame
as a prophet but will receive thanks for bringing
to public notice an inevitable fact of public life.
lie might have added that there will not only be
more women in public life but that all women will
bo a part of p.ublic life in the very near future.
They will .be in public life through the influence
ff their votes which will bo u.sed to protect the
American h-ome from invasion, whether the menace
be that of unusual taxr.s upon the necessities of life
which take food from the mouths of children, or
tho open exposure of temptations which tend to
destroy the character of children.
The- prominence of women in public life will de
pend upon the reaction of men who aspire to lead
ership to this new force- in public life.
If the men believe that hey can continue to name
candidates whoso private lives cannot he held up as
examples for the ,ons of mothers, if they believe
that they can sell the birthright of children for
public othce. if they believe that they can continu
to traffic with the powers of evil in exchange for
votes, there will be a surprising number of women
in ruhlic office.
The gre-at majority of women are not looking for
public oflice or personal prominence. The demand
for suffrage did not come from this desire.
It did come from the failure of male suffrage to
achieve a real democracy or a real protection for
the foundation of all American institutions which
Is th home.
It was forced by women who weary of l.eir c ig
nored and whose influence was that of a secondary
appeal through male member. of their fam.lbs.
A woman with a vote, asking for laws, h very
different from a woman asking for favors without
any power to enforce her appeal.
The number of women who are actively and
prominently in public life in any capacity save that
of votern can be pretty accurately forecasted by the
failure of men in public office to meed the Ftandards
and demands of the hour.

(St. I.tui i ;ioli-I)einoorat.)
In five states of the middle w-Ft an unprecedent
ed number of farmers are r ported to have ordere!
their telrphone discontinued iu recent, months. The
aigiv-d reason is that they can not a fiord to pay
for the service nt a time when it ;'.- important that
ven the .smallest items of outro shall bo l:m
lnated. For the same reason it Ls reported that the
automobile ie loft in shelter when the farmer got s
to the county .seat and he u.es horse and wagon.
The horses have to Te fei, anyway, and during the
winter months are little net-ded on th farm. To use
th auto would require an Immediate outgo for
pa.oline, perhaps for repairs. Farmers and farmers'
wives are encountered, it Is als- said, who are
patching up clothes and household gear with a view
to avoiJing new purchases, not merely during the
coining year, but during several future years. Whi
they are probably mistaken, they do not see any
early prospect of such betterment in conditions .is
would Justify them to replacing old. worn articl-s
with new.
Xo other rv ports on the plight of farmer. have
presented a more graphic picture of prevalent agri
iiilture distress. The telephone, the automobile, the
free postal delivery are the three things most com
monly ref-rre-d to as differentiating" farm condi
tions of th'3 present from those of the pat ar.d relieving-
th Isolation of the farmer ;rr.d keeping him
in touch with programs. The free delivery yet re
main, hut in caes of significant number th tele
phone and auto are in dsuse. Th pressure on
resources must, indeed, have been strong t force
so gr?at a eacrir'.o In sIf-denlal of their conven
ience. Ths farmers are too pessimistic, thouch their
frama of mind can easily be understood. If a prvat
betterment U not to be expected at an early date,
many encouraging signs are at fault. Now Is just
the time wh-n the farmer need., more than at
any other time, every one of those modern devices
that have done so much to improve his lot. He
entitled to replacement of at Iat some things that
are worn out or are wearing c.:t. How is lie to
be Misfained by optimism if he cuts himself of;"
from the sources of optimism and the condition
that justify optimism? He should get out the auto
mobile and leave pessimism behind with the dust.
He should reinstall the telephone and cay sruod-by

South I'.end. Ind., Feb. li. '22.
I maintain that news is news,
and should not ib suppressed.
Tho item which I am submitting
herewith was offered to Mr.
Stephenson, the well-known au
thor of The News-Time, and Ru
dolph Hearst of the other two
newspapers, the Noon and Eve
ning Trihune, both of whom for
reasons urstted refused to pub
lish it. The Gonlec Polskl was
undecided and the editor of the
Hungarian Sml-Annual couldn't
read it. I learned that a certain
Chinese newspaper has a large
circulation here, but their resident
representative Informed me that
all local news was forwarded to
Peking and relayed back here In
printed form, so that if one of
South Bend's Celestials happened
tn be pinched for speeding during
the early spring, his friends in
South Ilend would know all about
it by the following Chrlslmas.
This news is too Important to
withhold from the public for any
length of time. sr knowing that
you don't care what you print, so
long as you don't have to write it
yourself, I entrust it to you.
The Item follows herewith or
to wit, as oflo would say:
The Flks' club of South Pend
is about to produce a real honest-to-goodnes?
movie. Thousands
and thousands of feet of it. Two
perienced producers and a Fcore
of camera men are dolnff the hard
work, and the Elks are furnlshlnc:
the talent. I happened to be In
the room when the Elks commit
tee was selecting the cast. Pob
Schnelle, John De Haven, Al
Kerndt and Frank Hogan were the
committee. The movie gentleman
made a little speech and toldj
them what the play was all about
and that the finst person to be se
lected was the hero, or In other
words the handsome lover. The
committee as on man straight
ened up and threw out their
chests. De Haven, being a little
quicker on the get-away, was the
first to say, "Oh, I guess I could
handle that all right." Rob
Sehr.elle. however, insisted that as
exalted ruler cf th lode ; was
his duty to accept the part, much
a he dislike 1 publicity. Kerndt
iri !sted that from a box otr.ee
standpoint he was the only one
worth considering. Hocan s mply
slipped tho director a cigar and
was cast for the hero. Then, of
course, there was a riot and a
dark horse named Walter Heller
won the heat and race. The movie
man then male another speech
(with gestures) ar.d informe i the
committee that there nr to be
something' like a hundred actors
In the play, all stars, so they would
nil have plenty of acting t" do.
Thn Kerndt made a speech (also
with gestures) in which he proved
conclusively - lhat he should be
cast for ix different parts, citing
M. Tickford and others who have
done fairly well in dual roles. He
nlso suggested coming out la be
tween reels in black face an 1 do
ing a monologue. De Haven In
glowing terms spoke of his ability
as a toastmaster, which was con
clusive evidence of his ability as
an actor. Schnelle recited Ham
let's Soliloquy and Slogan gave
Impersonations; of famous men,
dead and living.
The director F.eld he never saw
so much talent in one locality in
all his life before, and the com
mittee admitted the fnct .without
question. Some one propocei ad
journment and Schnelle refused
to consider the motion and
Thfjre are four whit cots stand
ing s!d by sld" in the emergency
ward of the hospital four bruised
and battered faces are fswathed in
cooling bandages, four determined
and undaunted heroes are golnsr
to be movie stars or bust. In the
meantime the director couldn't
wait and slected his own cast,
and there you are.
It used to he the fear of wood al
cohol that kept men from drinking
in South Pend; now it's flying
splinters from Lane's ax that keeps
them straight.
