While Borne butas tutu oooy must not liodle. ^T people look to It to get down to rock bottom and dImpose of the big issues Without further delay. Concrete ac tion Is demanded. For the time being party Issues should be forgotten while the nation's business is attended to. It would be unfortunate indeed it it Is allowed to drug indefinitely as the country enters the political whirlpool of presidential aspirations and party and personal ambitions. It seems needless to again point out that the peace treaty offers the para mount problem of all others to b solv ed first. There is pending before the senate ao that body reconvenes the Un derwood motion calling for the ap pointment of a conciliation committee to take up the disputed points of the treat/ and the Knox resolution pro posing ratification of all peace terms except the le&guo of nations. Both should offer a basis for action. In addition there are a number of other separate pacts that are insisting on attention, Including the French, Aus trian, Polish and Turkish treaties. There must be a Panama canal treaty settlement with Colombia. Pressing bohind there are the railroad reorgan ization bills, the oil, coal, gas and land leading measures. Army reorganlza t'on plans must be taken up. Shipping legislation should be passed. The Mexican situation is still unset tled and there are special reports go ing Into Investigations dealing with that country which should have atten tion. There must be a probe made into the navy awards, the activities of the I. tv. W. and other disloyal organiza tions, the Ford-Newherry alleged sen atorial fraud, etc. Internal revenue laws are needed and the question of federal control of the meat packers is not unimportant. Certainly the present session of con gress has Its work cut out. It has al lowed this vast volume of business to pile up because It has failed to get real action oi any kind on the more press ing issues. In the meantime the en tire nation is suffering from high prices and falls to see the faintest hope of relief from congress. Unless that body settles down and faces the Issues be fore it. we may expect to be called upon to solve even mure serious domes tic problems in the Immediate future than we have In the past. The people want assistance and they look to con gress for It. THE "AMERICAN MAN" F RANKLIN K. Lane, secretary of the Interior, pays a remarkable tribute to the "American Man" In his annual report submitted to the president and congress. While wc are having our at- ! tentlon directed to the development of ! all other resources, we are overlook- j Ing the greatest asset of t\iem all, he points out. .This very able—we should say most able—m ember of the cabinet refers to the average Ameri can. The suggestion thus offered by Secretary Lane is well worth the ser loue consideration by the educate-s of 1 the country. The boys uni girls of today are the citizens of the future and tbe greatest care should be exercised In teaching them first to be Americans, to love and respect their country, to idealize its traditions and to pattern after its great men and women. The statement of Secretary I.ane should be kept In mind at all times. He has ths happy faculty of expressing himself clearly and well, and this art is displayed when he says: "When the whole story is told of American achievement and the picture is painted of our material resources, we come back to the plain but all significant fact .tbat far beyond all our possessions In land and coal and waters and oil and industries is the American man. To him, to hts spirit, and to his character, to hts skill and to his Intelligence Is due all the cred it for the land in which we live. And that resource wc arc neglect ing. He may be the best nurtur ed and bhst clothed and the best house *, of all men on this great globe. He may have more chancee to become independent ' and even rich. He may have opportunities fog schooling nowhere else offer ed. He may have a freedom to speah and to worship and to ex amine his judgment over the af _cf«hena tion. And yet he is ■met neglected of our rs i Imcause ho doss not know > he is. how rich beyond and public• tZlTl " her men he is. Not Hob ta •t meaty. I do not speak of that, hat rich In tbe endowment of pain, ers and possibilities no other man aver was given." POLITICAL PRISONERS. Ijl S predicted by the New York police, the eo-called "amnesty walk," or radical parade in protest against'tbe continued incarceration of some 100« persons imprisoned under the espio nage law, proved a ready victim to its own timid faith. The committee of the "People's Freedom Union," which sponsored the demonstration, declared., with blatant assurance, that the parade would be held In defiance of the law a fervent outpouring of protests by at least 2000 trained radicals, It prpvo» to be a mere burlesque of Its preten sions, some 60 remonstrants answering the final roll call. The demonstration was the culmina tion of a series of meetings, parades and petitions devised, for the purpose of Bhowing that public sentiment favors the immediate and uncondi tional surrender of all political pris oners, from Eugene V. Debs down. The difficulty is largely In what Is meant, by a political prisoner. The United States has time and again shown that It Is willing and able to succor persons, who have been perse cuted In foreign countries for purely political reasons, but it has also shown that It measures loyalty In time of war by a very high standard of patriotism and hence what the nv icals call a po litical prisoner—Debs, for Instance—Is regarded generally not as a political —Isoner, but as a political derelict who In the supreme test showed that he favored Prussian autocracy as against political liberty. Public opinion has spoken and there can be no appeal from Its verdict. T SIBERIA AND JAPAN HE reported threat coming from Admiral „ Kolchak, head of the Omsk government, that unless the al lies lend assistance to the antl-Bol shevik forces In Siberia, he will ne gotiate the transfer of part of that country to Japan, is probably not ser iously meant, yet it contains a sug gestion, and we might say a possibility, that should not bo forgotten. Many changer are rapidly taking place in the world. What if part or the whole of Siberia should be ceded to Japan? It Is certain that the anti-Bolshevik are meeting with the most serious re verses. They are not receiving the support from the allies the^' expected. Japan Is seriously worried about what her future attitude should be in op posing the reds. There Is a difference of opinion in the United States about what our attitude should be and wheth er or not we should continue to main tain a military force in Siberia. Bitter opposition developed early to Japan going Into Shantung. The Chi nese have not forgotten one of their richest provinces Is temporarily lost to them. It Is probable that Japan has no real desire to go Into Siberia, but the antl-Bolshevlk appeal to her Is a temptation that might find support among Japanese statesmen. In any event Siberia offers a puzillng prob lem. made all the more so by the suc cessive victories of the reds. Tin shortage of gold money for gifl Purposes Is not so serious as It might be if any other kind of money were not Just as spendable. Nobody sobms to care If the opera tors do strike as long as the miners If the senate doesn't act on the treaty pretty soon, the Idea will be come prevalent that senators aren't rven good politicians. are willing to dig coal. The Bolsheviki's supply of ammuni tion must be running low as they let 700 sick captives freeze to death. Letter writing may be a lost art, but as long as there's Mexico note writing will flourish. RIPPLING RHYMES By WALT MASON. GOOD RIDDANCE.

In Rus sia, which Is free. They didn't like our banner or eagle, worth a cent, and in unseemly manner they voiced their discontent. They said that tyrants rule us, we'fe tramp led by the strong, the plûtes and robbers fool us, and everything is wrong. They pitied us for work ing, they shuddered at our fate, and thought some timely dirking and bombing would be great. And now they have departed for Rus sia's shining shore, where patri ots truehearted may shed each oth er's gore; where man takes recre ation with weapons In his paws, and prompt assassination is surs of great applause. I hope they'll all be joyous on Russia's happy strand, and never more annoy us, or see this darkened land. They'll have the kind of freedom that's bound to hit the spot, for friends will shoot and bleed 'em, and burn them when they're Shot. So lot's keep on dispatching the reds to Russia's Shore; they've ltchsd us long and scratching has grown to he * Sara - , xPI easy to explain The teacher asked ths pupils to writs an essay, telling what they would do tf they had five million dollars.

THE PLAY And still the play goes on, nor ever palls— Laughter and comedy and mock despair; But nightly, as the final curtain falls, Mirth doffs her mask to show the face of Care. —Doris Kenyon. Ten years ago we fell out of a chair laughing at a burlesque comedian who chased a policeman off the stage and returned wearing his uniform. A friend dragged us to a burlesque show the other day and we saw the same scene with the same result. It will always be funny to us.

WHAT THE PRESS OP THE I I NATION SAY | COMMON CONCLUSION. (New York Tribune.) The ninth North Carolina congres slonal district where, on a full vote, the usual Democratic majority of 4000 or more is cut to 1600, furnishes fur ther evidence of the Justness of White, House appraisals of public opinion. Kentucky, Oklahoma fnd now North Carolina all point to a common conclu sion. THE EDGE BILL (New York Times.) There is nothing compulsory in the Edge bill, and there is nothing about it which makes International trade safe beyond peradventure. The govern ment merely authorizes, without guar antee. Federal reserve member banks under the direction of the central In stltutlon, may If they wish, buy or dis count commercial paper of the for eign trade. The advantage Is that their operations will not be under the restrictions which are proper and nec essary in the case of banks of dis count and deposit. Under this measure they will not have to provide cash on demand, and »therefore can provide longer credits than Is permissible to Institutions which are In danger If not highly liquid. HARO TO UNDERSTAND. (New York Sun.) But why so patriotic a Democrat and so enlightened a political philosopher as Mr. Gerard should think that he can help to make and keep the country safe for democracy by demanding the rat ification of the Wilson-made treaty and covenant without the dotting of an "1" or the crossing of a "t" is more dif ficult for the ordinary mind to compre hend. The two parts of the platform don't hang together. The second pro posal seems to betray some lack of constructive Imagination When consid ered In relation to the first proposal. We fail to see exactly how the country Is to be made and kept safe for de mocracy by furthering and clinching the most audacious enterprise of exec utive autocracy that the country ever was called upon to resist for the sake of its Independence and futurs welfare. ANOTHER GERMAN "VICTORY." (The Buffalo Commercial.) The sympathy of the country goes out to the American minority in the fifth Wisconsin congressional district today. The reelectlon of Berger to the seat In thg house of representatives from which he was ousted after his conviction for disloyalty during the war shows plainly -enough that they are more to be pitied than censured for being unfortunate enough to have to live in our "Little Germany." Friday's election, in which Berger was returned winner over Bodenstab, fusion candidate, by nearly 6000 votes, shows conclusively the disposition of the unreconciled Germans of Milwau kee. They may masquerade as So cialists or radicals, they may hid their Pan-Germanism under the cloak of such statements as that issued by Ber ger after his election—In which he at tempts to make It appear that it was opposition to capitalism that elected him—they may howl down the high ways and byways of the land that here Is the case of a man unjustly persecut ed by the constituted forces of the gov ernment at Washington. They can not, however, disguise ths fact that they have attempted to return to of fice a felon convicted of sedition to the government under which he elects to live. Americans who Uvo in Milwaukee, therefore, are simply "out of luck. 1 Thars ts little chance that they will be rep r es e nted in con g res s ; ths house will hardly seat this man who damned him self In the eyes of all right-thinking Americans by his acta, and Governor Phillip says there will he no more elec tlona in that district.

' wav sKErwn nusiL ms Common Cattle $30 Per Head —Sheep $6 Per Head— Common Horae Assessments Left to the Offioials. Assessors of the state will probab ly hold sessions Wednesday In order to dispose of the many problems and questions that have plied up before them since they began their annual convention Monday, it became appar ent today. The assessors have reached an agreement as to the assessment values on livestock, but have still to decide questions of land values and of statis tical Information which they gather as part of thetr work. Monday afternoon the following ap praisal figures were adopted for gen eral assessment purposes for this year: LIVESTOCK VALUES. Common cattle, $30 ppr head: milch cows, 840 per head; graded and thor oughbred, )66 and up; calves, six months to year, 816: registered bulls, 8100; beef cattle, 850; stallions and hogs at assessors' discretion. This morning the assessors amended their minutes of Monday referring to assessment of common horses at 813 per head, so that the appraisal will be left to the judgment of the assessor, the opinion of the majority on second thought being that the values of horses vary greatly In different parts of the state, beolng as low as 85 per head in some sections, and as high as 830 to 875 per head in others. SHEEP REMAIN $6. The convention voted this morning to leave sheep assessments the same as last year, 86 per head. Bees will be assessed this year at 88 per stand. This afternoon the assessors will hear a talk by President A. L. Frêehafer of the public utilities commission on util ity valuations and other matters of which the public utilities commission has official knowledge. Under a law passed by the last legislature, utilities of the state are required to file Inven tories of their physical valuation. The relation of these figures to assessment valuation figures will probably be touched upon. The assessors this morning heard talks by O. H. Barber, state Immigra tion labor and statistics commissioner, and Julius H. Jacobson, federal crop reporter for Idaho, regarding statis tical Information which the assessors are required to gather. This is the first year that the assessor's have been re quired to gather industrial Informa tion, and Mr. Jacobson gave them some tips on this work. E! Failure Insure Help Makes Pro prietor Liable for Judgments Arising Under Workmen's Compensation Act. The state industrial accident com mission today Issued for publication a warning to employers within the state that serious consequences may result If they do not comply with the work men's compensation act by taking out compensation Insurance for their em ployes. Employers who fall to com ply with the act and who are in default more than 30 days are subject to a' penalty of 81 Per day for each un protected employe, and may be en joined by the district court from carry ing on their business while the default continues. Another point ralsf d by the commis sion Is that uninsured employers are themselves liable for any judgment that may arise as a result of an acci dent to any of their help. These Judg ments sometimes run considerably high, and an employer not financially able to stand the risk Is courting fi nancial disaster by leaving his work men unprotected. The commission Is launching a pub licity drive to bring all the employers In the state under the protection of fered them as well as their help by the workmen's compensation act. ML HEM MSB MME The basis upon which the state will exchange approximately 200,000 acres of Its lands within Idaho national for est reserves for government forest and public domain lands In more compact areas will be agreed upon this after noon at ' a conference between I.

The governor will go by way of Den ver where the party of governors will assemble for a preliminary conference Saturday. They will then travel In a special car to Washington, spending their time on the way in deciding upon a mass of details yet to bs cleared away. The principal matter to be laid be fore tbe western congressmen will be to ask them to use thetr influence In obtaining a 8260,000,000 appropriation for reclamation work In tbe United States. W. G. Swendsen, state reclamation commissioner, will probably Join Gov ernor Davis In Washington within a few days. The governor expects to be gone about two weeks on the trip. _ FRESH AIR THE BEST 'OOUQH MIXTURE' COMPOUNDED By LEONARD KEENE HIR8HBERG A. B., M. A„ M. D. (J ohns Hopkins University) E VEN in a hero's heart discretion is the better part of valor. The real trouble, however, for those domestic Falstaffs who wish to throw physic to the dogs and use n modicum of discretion in treating bleak weather ills, is to know where discretion begins and where valor ends. It is n wise saying of Hudibras's tbat "He that flees may fight again, which he can never do who's slain." But the trouble is to know exactly whether you am running into danger or away from it.
