There Is More Steam In El Pasos Social Machinery Than
Marshall Expounds Theory
of Eepresentative Eule;
Favors Amendment.
WASHINGTON, D. 0, May 17.
Vice president Thomas K. Mar
shall has presided over the
senate of the United States for 7
years and can therefore be expected
to know whereof be speaks when he
says that if prohibition hadbeen
submitted to a secret vote it would
not have got 20 votes in the senates
The writer asked the vice president
to amplify his" statement, which
was made originally before the Vir
ginia Bar association.
"I want it understood at the outset,-
said he "that I believe In the
enforcement of the constitutional
amendment on prohibition. It is here
ana is the law and should be en
forced, but I believe if the amend
ment had been voted on aoording to
the individual convictions of the
members of the senate it would not
fbave cot 2d -rotes.
Thought People Wanted It
"Now I am not Imputinir motives
to anybody. I have never seen any
representatives of the brewers or
the Anti-Saloon league around' con
gress and wouldn't know them If I
were to. I believe that the men who
voted for prohibition and for oman
suffrage, for instance, thought the
people a majority of their con
stituents wanted these amendments
passed. But that Isn't my theory of
a representative government.
"As I told the lawyers at Rich
mond, the people of this' country
didn't intend, in my judgment, that
their representatives should be
guided "by their constituents, but
that elected representatives should
act for them. I dent sthink when
people h Ire a lawyer that th ey
should ask him to do what they
How It Should Work:
"Advice should not come from the
client to the lawyer, but from the
lawyer to the client. If the client
doesn't like the advice, be can get
another lawyer.
"That's the same with represen
tative government. The people in
my opinion should choose their rep
resentatives to act for them. If they
don't like what their representa
tives do, they can select others and
repudiate what has been done." j
"Then If yon had been a member
of the senate jou would have
voted against the prohibition amend
ment?" the vice president was asked.
tjb, yes, was me repxy, "na

members of the senate whose views
about the police powers f the sev
eral states coincide with my own
surrendered their opinions whei. they
voted slmjjly because they thought
it was the wish of the people ofJ
their states. That isn't leadership or
representative government, in my
conception of the term.
"Indeed lawyers, ke statesmen,
are losing their influence because
they are not telling their client
what is the law and what should
be done. Instead, lawyers nowadays
are listening to boards of directors
and trying to accomplish what these
boards want done, often against the
best judgment of the lawyers them
selves." The vice president was endorsed
by the Virginia Bar association for
the presidency, a compliment of the
occasion, no doubt, for Marshall is
not a candidate, active, passive or
receptive, or een interested. Maybe

broadside against the advocates of
a general staff for the navy, declar
ing they sought to Prussianise the
navy department and make the civi

told the senate committee Investigat
ing the navy's conduct of the war
that "one of Rear Admiral Slum's
chief objects in writing his January
7 letter and bringing about this in
vestigation was to remove the navy,
aa far as possible, from civilian con
trol." Rear admiral Slnus original
charges against the navy department
showed hostility toward certain of
ficers and a desire to damage the
ranking officers who directed naval
operations in the war, the naval sec
retary declared, adding that "the
evidence has shown a desire to dis
credit the secretory of the navy be
cause he was not a 'rubber stamp'
If congress wished to depart from
"the traditional American policy," of
civilian control of the navy, it should
do so "directly and clearly and with
out pretense," said Mr. Daniels, by
making an admiral secretary of the
navy and a member of the cabinet.
The most ardent advocates of the
general staff system had not advo
cated going that far, however, they
wished to keep a "rubber stamp"
civilian as a figurehead in the sec
retary's office, he said.
The witness quoted from reports
and writings of other naval secre
taries to show, he said, that they, too.
struggled against a substitution of
the general staj system.
