Our Rip Van Winkle Congress
So far as congress is concerned, it swms as tho the
war might as well not have been fought. Congress has
learned nothing. and forgotten nothing. It is playing the
same old game in the same old way.
Before the war, the expenses, and therefore the income,
of the government were about a billion dollars a year.
When we went into the war. congress, under pressure,
passed a law to raise four billion dollars in 191 S. l.ast
May, with the rapid increase of expenditures, there was a
demand for a new revenue law to raise eight billion dollars
in 1919.
Congress has Iwn working on it, then, for six months.
And its work was made easier bv the armistice, which re
sulted in a general agreement that the new law should
raise not eight billion, but six billion dollars.
What is the result?
The bill which passed the house of representatives was
for eight billion, and the senate committee in revising it
downward is therefore making a new bill which will have
to go I melt to the house and Ih» passed there. The new bill
is not yet ready for even the senate to act on. And to
make things worse, the senate democrats are deliberately
inviting trouble by sticking in a provision intended to tu>
the hands of the new and republican congress, which comes
in next March.
The treasury officials seem to have given up all hope
of any law being passed within'the next two or three
months. If no law i* passed, we will proceed under the
law of 1917, which was to raise only four billion dollars.

Mystery tempts to ruin, fascinates to disaster, leads

The mystery of the Hereafter has influenced many to

The Point of a Bent Pin
Remember, don't you, the usually decorous teacher who
one day seated himself abruptly on the point of a bent pin?
How that tiny thin* did irritate him, didn't it? He was
grouchy for several days after, you may recall.
It's the little things which are, to mast of us, the biggpst
The simple loss of a single small button is sufficient to
send some men into hot or cold rages, according to their mer
curial or phlegmatic temperaments. In such a state they
often make their regret the loss of spinsterhood.
Little things, however, make up the sum of content, of
industry, of joy and grief and life. They are not to be
treated with contempt. They are too important.
Look out for the little things.
Avoid occasioning pin-thrusts.
That's the way to add to the total of pleasure in the

Here is work for the city officials, the labor forces,

The Election Tomorrow
lomorrow fieattleites will vote for school directors and
King county will vote for a port commissioner.
Happily, the school election contest has developed two
fairly good candidates for the one-year term, Mrs. W. P.
Harper and Walter Santmyer. Both are pledged to "the
equal pay for equal service" principle. Henry R. King a
iocal business man, is unopposed for the three-year term

Not a King in Sight!
Four aces!
That's the winning hand. The hand which wins
tho prize of peace for all the world. The hand of
democracy, world-wide, and all-embracing. Four of
a kind, unl>eatal>le, unapproachable. Hotter than
kings. And. you will notice, there's not a joker in
the hand.
Just men, human, honest, democratic men of the
people, men in whose arteries and veins flows the red
blood of manhood.
That's the hand which will win at the peace
table, and will clinch forever the victory democracy
won on the battlefields of Europe.
Of course there will be kings; always have been
in every deal, you know. Hut kings count for little
when four aces are present.
And. four aces are present. They'll be at the
conference. Three premiers and one president.
Snre. King George of England will be there, and
King EmmanuH of Italy and the brave King Albert
of Belgium. But the real powers in the conference,
and before and after it is held, will fx- four untitled,
uncrowned men, three premiers and a president.
They'll be:
Never in any peace conference have four men as
big of mind and purpose gathered around the table.
And never in an all-European peace conference have
kings and emperors played as small a part as they
will now.
The four aces will win. The kings will have no
show, and none. Also there are in the dis
card, two kaisers, a Bulgarian czar and a Moslem
sultan; and the joker of autocracy has been torn into

Low Meat Prices
High Cattle Prices
If the farmer cannot get enough for his live stock, he
raises lees, and the packer gets less raw material.
If the consumer has to pay too much for his meat, he
eats less of it, and the packer finds his market decreased.
The packer wants the producer to get enough to ymkm
live-stock raising profitable, and he wants the price of
so low that everyone will eat it
But all he can do, and what he would have to do in any
case to stay in business, is to keep down the cost <Jf pro
cessing the farmer s stock into meat so that the consumer
pays for the meat and by-products only a little more »han
the farmer gets for hia animals
