Bat they fear the administration's displeasure and hesitate to break wKh the president, which is what voting for the .Lodge reservations woara mean. They have now reached a point where they must choose Electing Senators. their paths and on tatir decision depends the fate of the ! true in the senate. treatv The president's decision clarifies the political atmosphere and permits the American people to place the responsibility ior ratification or failure of the treaty where it belongs. Mr Wilson seems wholly willing to accept all responsi bility for his party in standing for unreserved ratification. Apparently it is his wish, now that his peace plan has been reierted, that the issue shall be fought out at the polls. It 14 altogether right that an expression of public sentiment should be obtained before final disposition is made of a question of such far reaching importance. Before tie TJuted States abandons its traditional policy of isolation irom European affairs, the people certainly should be con THE return to the British parliament of Mr. Asquith points out one great advantage in the English system of electing representatives to the lawmaking bodies over cur own. The former premier, after being defeated in one constituency, was overwhelmingly elected by another. In the United States the government has been deprived of many efficient public servants because they have aroused the antagonism of their own states. Especially is this The framers of our constitution never intended that the senators should be representatives of the states of their residence. It was the purpose of the fathers that the up per house of congress should be in the true sense a federal senate, organized not for the benefit of the individual states, but for the nation as a whole. It was never meant that the senators should be representatives of the people in the sense that members of the lower house are. Bather it was planned that the senate should have for its special sphere the larger questions affecting the United States as a nation. The very names given by the constitution to the mem bers of the two houses clearly shows the duties it was pro- suited But in the meantime some means should be devised ! posed to confer upon them. The Texas men serving in the to bring to an end the state of war which exists between the An-encan government and the central powers. The Ledge reservations to the treaty provide that the United S'stes may withdraw from the League of Nations ahenever it so desires. Ratification of the treaty, with the Lodge reservations, would not, therefore, commit the coun try permanently to league membership. It would be a temporary arrangement which might, or might not, be come permanent as congress, after ascertaining the will of tht people, should decide. The restrictions placed by the reservations conld not seriously impair operation of the league plan. In the mam, they are confined simply to the obligations of the upper house are not Texas senators, but United States senators from Texas, implying that the state from which they come is of minor consideration. Members of the lower house are called representatives in congress, signi fying that they are the people's representatives in the law making body. Unfortunately, voters look to the senators from their states to look after the interests of their states and if senators, is devoting their time to the larger issues which confront the nation, fail to cater to their constituents, they stand in danger of defeat at the polls under the direct elec tion system which now prevails. Because of this, many senators who have given their country service of immeas- Cnited States to the league. They propose, among other I arable value, through wise counsel, have fallen into disre- things, that decision as to the use of the armed forces of pnte in their home states and have been retired. the country shall rest wi'fc congress and that the United Political landslides, too, have taken from the senate States will not assume to guarantee the territorial integ- many valuable men whom the country needed. Ordinarily ntv of the member powers. Equal representation between the United States and Great Britain in the league council is the only issue which seems at all likely to cause trie- nan with other powers and semi-official information has been rece-ved that England is wiHtng to yield on this pom So it would seem that the president has no foundation on which to stand in blocking ratification of the treaty with the Lodge reservations attached, pending the verdict of the people. Democratic senators, who are in a better position than is the president to leel rue puooe pulse, realue that the responsibility, is now dearly placed, and naturally they are bewildered. Left to their own judg ment, there is no doubt but they would vote for ratmea tion, ar least enough of them to make the necessary two thirds. But president Wilson is still, by virtue of his of fice, the recognized leader of las party, and all Democrats realize that the only remaining chances of victory will have vanished if the party is unable to present a united front in the coming campaign. The senate faces three alternatives. It can reject the treaty and permit the state of war with the central powers to continue until a new president and a new senate can deal with the situation; it can ratify the treaty with the Lodge reservations, thereby giving membership to the United States in the League of nations, or it can pass a resolution, the house concurring; declaring peace with thi nations with which we are at war, leaving it to the next administration to negotiate a new treaty or accept the oM cae, in its present form or amended, as the people may dic tate at the polls. The first alternative is undesirable from every view point. Conditions cannot become wholly normal until the ronntry resumes relations with Germany and to continue the state of war for another year would prove hurtful to America and Europe a Hire. Congress should, without far-; ' trto.T fln nrrtr f.l iT . tt w . 1rr. w.lrtTtfw f r.r- ries the whole ticket with it, senators and all, regardless of the service they have given. Under onr elective system, too, the country is deprived of the services of some of its most capable men merely be cause of the place of their residence. A Republican is a strong Democratic state has no chance of election to the senate; neither has a Democrat in a state which always goes Republican. For efficient government, strong lead ers are needed is the minority of congress as well as the majority, and our senate would be on a higher plane if the constitution did not require that they be elected from their own states. 0 ; -idkrr ait vy- nmS 1W T2?S u" ., ii- rj Tj.

WASHINGTON, D C. March 10. Some day the persons who thought Uncle Sam would never hare time to check up on individual returns will be Just as surprised when they are Indicted and punished as the persons who never dreamed that certain kinds of graft entirely -unrelated to income taxes would be exposed to public view. There are. for Instance, plenty of laws on the statute books to stamp out political corruption. Yet the gov ernment may never hare had the evi dence. Suppose a firm has been ac customed to paying a few thousand dollars to somebody as "political pull" in federal state, county or city. That item might be uncovered as aa in-veatie-atlon is made of what consti tutes proper salary allowances.

The government is not publishing all Its information, nut in one rawer popu. arisen. And some big concerns have been on the carpet here about "ex cessive" salaries. And the govern ment has in many cases decided that the allowance for salary was beyond the average and the emolover did not prove that his employe possessed the' extraordinary qualifications or per-: formed extraordinary duties wnicn entitled the latter to be considered an exception to the rule. The returns of the general average of one's trade or business competitors is the best check the government has on efforts to charge off to salaries sums that logically should be subject to the higher percentages of taxation or ex cess profits taxes. Many a man would prefer to pay an individual tax on SIOOM rather than an excess profits tax on the same sua as a business profit, for in the second case he might have to give nearly half of it to tho government Die Salaries Costly Tndeed. some people are lucky. n?K &,sm 88i Rippling Rhymes Br WALT MASOX.
