Secret service detectives are now engaged in a
nation-wide search for the perpetrators of the
attempts against public men, through the bomb
outrages which have been twice attempted and
twice checked. :
The secret service of the United States gov
ernment has made a record during the war, and
since the signing of the armistice which has re
newed the confidence of the American people in
their powers of protection. But there is nothing
to which people as a rule become so used a3 the
presence of danger. Life is lived at such high
tesion, there are so many dangers faced daily in
our every day avocations, that the American peo
ple have become not so much foolhardy, as blind
to the condition that surround them. Were it
not for the vigilance of the secret service men,
the red flag might long ago have been placed
upon the parapet of many a public building and
the soviet government in the United States might
be more than a name.
The fact that the level-headed business and
working men of this country'have joined hands
in . preventing public disaster, by placing their
problems on a common plane of understanding,
and with a joint determination to conserve this
country to Americanism, pure and simple, the
same state of affairs would rule here as under
those autocracies which pretend to defend the
principles of liberty, and carry on their escutch
eons the skull and cross-bones as their insignia
assassins of land, instead of pirates of the high
seas, but with little difference in intention or
There is much that the private citizen may do
as a preventative measure against the work of
the anarchist in this country. And one of the
chief of these is to keep the ears open and the
mouth shut. '
Do not talk Bolshevism, and do not let anyone
else talk it to you. And when he does, report him
to the proper authorities.
Aifother thing that might well be loowed into,
and particularly in Pensacola, is the ease with
which the anarchistic element may communicate
wit hone another. It has been called to the at
tention of The Journal that the writing on the
sidewalks of this city, might easily constitute a
menace to the public safety. It is a matter of
history that during the war there was a sign
language which was used to convey its sinister
meaning far and wide, and that just as tramps
once marked certain houses, that the Bolsheviki
marked certain public places for annihilation.
It is impossible to prevent a certain amount of
writing on the sidewalks of the city, perhaps,
though the habit seems to be more prevalent
here than in most cities. But it would be well to
keep a neye on the sidewalk writer, and watch
his goings out and his coming in. These public
signs have proven worth watching in other cities.
Why not in Pensacola?
the benefit of Boy Scout discipline, training and
The future of the nation depends, of course,
upon its youth. The fathers and mothers of
American boys will be gravely derelict in paren
tal duty and in national obligation if they fail to
give their hearty support, moral and financial, to
this great American Boy Scout movement Not
only is every Boy Scout given useful knowledge
and training which equips him better for the bat
tle of life itself, but there are inculcated in him
the duties, obligations, ideals and higher concep
tions of American citizenship. , ., .
Each year the Boy Scout movement is turning
nut thousands of "better bovs and creating the
finest types of future American patriots. No
cause should appeal more strongly to the mothers
and fathers of America than the Boy Scout cause,
The Boy Scouts raised several hundred million
dollars in the Liberty Loan and War Savings
Stamps campaigns. They did splendid work for
the Red Cross in its several national campaigns.
They served the government in many other ef
fective ways during the great world war. It is
an organization of gallant patriots and deserves
the encouragement and support of the nation.
The week beginning June 8 and ending June
14 has been set apart as Boy Scout week for the
purpose of enlarging and strengthening the Boy
Scout organization. Associate memberships in
the Boy Scout organization will be offered to the
mothers of American boys and to other adult
American citizens. This, if successful, will pro
vide a supporting adult organization to the Boy
Scouts of America which will assure the enlarged
usefulness and effectiveness of the Boy Scout
movement. Surely there are millions of other
American citizens who are willing to contribute
a small sum to put the Boy Scout organization
on a strong and permanent basis which will as
sure the continuous training of the youth of
America in the finer ideals and conceptions of
citizenship in the greatest democracy on earth.
It is power-sharing, not profit-sharing that in
dustrial progress is bringing. Power is always
the prize in social struggles. It has been so from
all time. Love of power rather than love of mon
ey is the root of the evil of class conflict and the
motive that drives men to pile millions upon mil
lions in excess of any real need. The power to
impulse is more universal than the hunger for
profits. - '
Equal distribution of power is the foundation
of democracy. It is all of democracy. Without
it there can be no democracy. With it all things
democratic follow. When democracy enters in
dustry it is inevitable that it should speak in
terms of power rather than profits. This ex
plains why labor fights harder for union recog
nition, the closed shop and collective bargain
ing than for higher wages. It explains also why
employers resist these things with greater de
termination and animosity. -
For the same reasons profit-sharing has
proved so puzzlingly disappointing as an indus
trial solution. It was hailed as an industrial
panacea in the early eighties by many philan
thropic, well-meaning capitalists. Books at that
time proclaimed it the righteous road to social
peace. Few of the highly promising experiments
of those years survive. Many went down in bit
ter industrial struggles of the very- character
they were supposed to prevent.
au tmngs, including proiits, ioilow power.
Profits remain with power; they are taken with
A violent fight for power is rebellion or revo
lution according to its success. In any case pro
duction stops and product and profit disappear
until the question of power is settled.
Democracy was established among men that
struggles for power might not bring violence.
Democracy fails if it does not do this; and the
most frequent cause of the failures of democracy
is lack of sufficient democracy.
The greatest test democracy has ever been
asked to meet is its extension from the political
to the industrial field." This change is now well
under way. Collective bargaining by unions full
