This means that the bill will become law. In fundamental principles the industrial courts for Great Britain are strikingly like the system of industrial um pires suggested for the United States by Basil M. Manly, formerly of the war labor hoard. Under both plans, arbitration of a labor-capital dispute would be entirely voluntary, requiring the consent of both parties involved. The Kritish system will create a standing industrial court appointed by the minister ot labor. It will include representatives of workers and employers, independent persons and one or jnore women. From the morrfbers ot the industrial court special arbitration boards will be im paneled for each case as it arises. The Manly plan is the same, except that in place of the standing industrial court he suggests a panel of 21 indus trial umpires elected by the people and subject to recall. Both the .anly plan and the British plan would compel the producing of necessary record* and witnesses. The British trade unions' original opposition to industrial .•< urts centered on the matter of keeping confidential any records submitted to the courts. The bill was amended sc. that all submitted records, such as contracts and busi ness accounts, are guaranteed against l>eing published with out the consent of the business or trade union whose prop erty they are. Thereupon the British unions backed the bill. This is a good point to keep in mind in the discussion o: the proposed industrial umpires for the United States. President Wilson, in his letter to the Jackson Day ban quet, definitely committed himself to a "no compromise attitude on the league of nations, and proposed the league „s the big: issue of the coming presidential election. Senator Lodge, republican leader, announces he cor dially welcomes" this attitude. No better comment on this situation could possibly be made than the following from William Jennings Bryan s speech at the banquet: "Our plan has been rejected and we must face the situa tion as it Is. We must either secure such compromises as may be possible or present the issue to the country. Bryan's demand for a league compromise voices what the groat mass of people in this country are thinking. The real issues for the presidential election are domestic issues and the politicians who fail to recognize it are sow ing defeat. The compromise action on the treaty as demanded would strip away the mask behind which every profiteer in the United States is hiding on the pretext that there can be nc normal conditions until the treaty is signed. America in a twilight none—a No Man's I>and in which sniping of profiteers prowl at will. This is that situation iom the people's side. There is also a politicians' side. It is embodied in this sentence from Bryan's Jackson Day speech, "We are con -"-onted with the organization of new parties on the theory aat the old parties do not meet the i««ues that have arisen." The plain meaning of this is that if the senate leaders of the democratic party stick by Wilson and against Bryan a third party may be formed. In the resulting confusion the election might easily be so balanced that it would In thrown into the house of representatives. The great body of the people want American interests safeguarded and they want peace signed up now. This calls for a com promise on the league deadlock or an immediate direct na tional referendum.

"Alcoholic candies, adulterated drug*, and injurious foods may Ik; sold in quantities in your state by manufacturers who find it more profitable to cater thus dishonestly to a small market than to supply clean and correctly labeled commodities for interstate trade." Obviously, there is a national peril from every state or municipality whose people are weakened and made ill by failure to safe guard their food supply. JThe national inter est calls imperatively for a raising of the local standards when they are low and for the vigorous enforcement of new and better laws. Mow to secure the needed uniformity in th«- enactment and enforcement of health laws in general is, of course, a serious prob lem. Some see its only solution in the creation of a department of health. To this depart ment they would intrust powers of health administration for the entire nation. Others favor the establishing of a national, health commission, with power to make standard laws and supervise their adminis tration by the local health authorities. Or it might be possible for the states to come to a mutual agreement to accept and vigorously to enforce a code o£ laws worked out by leading hvgienists, and revised from time to time as scientific and medical prog ress made necessary. Most assuredly some way should be found to unify the nation for health. Some way will have to be found if the evils which ill health bring on the nation are to be suc cessfully fought.
