But if the letter of the law has not been carried out in these covenants, and we do not admit that it has not, it was the spirit of these fourteen points which made it possible for the great powers to get together on a common basis, and sign a treaty of peace and form a league which should bind the na tions of the world in such a way that never again can the world suffer such wrong as was wreaked upon it by the war-lords of Germany. But a chain is no stronger than its weakest link, and the weak link in the cable of the treaty of peace and the league of nations is the Ignited States of America. " .

Rather should strike restrictions be part of the contract. It is inconsistent with the fundamentals of Amer ican liberty, including freedom of contract. It is not a crime to break a contract. It Is not sound criminal law to single out the contract of employ ment on a railroad and hedge it with criminal pen alties. The railroads should be free to make it one of the conditions of the contract of employment on the railroad that the employe shall not strike, and that If he does strike he shall be liable for specified penalties. The railroad ought to be free to omit such conditions from any of its contracts with its employes. The best thing the government can do for the railroads is to let them alone. The best thing for the railroads and the best tnin'g for the public. The only regulation needed is abundant prompt de cisioins of railroad disputes by the courts- Leave the railroads free to do their worst- and take the consequences. Provide adequate courts to make the railroad pay adequate damages for failure to give godd service and equal treatment. Threy are out , after dividends. To get dividends they must do busl- j ness.
