Weet-End Edition, November 27-2$, 1520. OFFICIAL CENSORSHIP OF ANY KIND IS CONTRARY TO AMERICAN IDEALS EVERY state has laws prohibiting the public exhibition of lewd or obscene pictures. Such prohibition cornea within the exercise of the police powers. While administration of such laws is often ridiculously at variance with any rational code of morals not by reason of laxity hot by reason of fanaticism on one hand and coarse vulgarity as the other still no one questions the necessity of reasonable regula tisas of this nature and just enforcement in the name of common decency. It must rest with a jtky at lest in each case to decide whether a girts exhibit is lewd and ebscew or not. Bnt these laws are something enrte different from a censorship provided by law to be eaeiUsed by a bo til sf political appointees. The idea of an official censorship of anything published, written, shown, or spoken is intolerable to Americana gen erally, and rightly so. This whether the word be used in the sense of preventive or of repressive action taken arbitrarily. Similar laws to those which apply to exhibition of lewd or obscene pictures apply to dramatic representations, writ ing, speaking, and printing. The police power is invoked and applied for the general protection against what amoaats or may amount to assault, and there is a limit beynhS which it is commonly not safe to go, in any pah He niaafcer, without getting into trouble with a court. When such cases get before a Jury, the Jary Wtbjifct ffi a reuse a board of repressive censorship, bnt under our sys tem of government and law we have found no better way to insure substantial justice in the long run than to trust the courts and the people as represented in juries. So, while verdicts of juries and courts in such cases are often ridicu lous and against either reason or morals, they are more apt to err on the side of excessive restriction than excessive license. Hot repressive laws, but enlightenment and education 0 and culture, furnish the best social protection dgaptt what The home brew maker whom president Wilson pardoned may be called "assaults against (telicacy," against the finer lives in Cincinnati; is this revenge or forgiveness on the 'eelings of decent people, against good taste, rather than president's part for Ohio's vote? assaults against morals public cr private, ignorance is not innocence, and morality is not a matter of the senses so ranch as ft is a matter of the motive? of the heart Official censorship by boards sf political appointees has not one valid argument in its favor. The police power is aufffcieat in most eases to itskre protection of the public against licentious exhibitions or publications or speeches in public places. Where the offence is properly to Ve elaraen as an offence against good taste fas is more apt to be the case) rather than as an offence against public morals, then the general public ought to be left entirely free to exercise its own censorship in its own Tray by refusing to buy what is offered for sale, refusing to go to hear what is not pleasant to listen to, refusing to attend moving picture shows where the ordinary canons of good taste, of delicacy, of decency, are violated.

This year Jaek Frost Caught more apples than usual, and the deer have poisoned their Urea.

Drawinsr nearer to the narrow pass between i Ireland and Scotland the ship's captain indicates to us the exact place where the Tuscan ia, American transport, was stmk a few months ago by a German submarine with the loss of more than 10D lives. British destroyers not fir away amuse -themselves fifing at vagrant fldating ''mines'' to explode them; gdod target practice for them and makes the channel that much afer for the next boat in. Heavy clouds hang over the Scottish coast and the more distant peaks; we tan easily see tbe villages and fields and disCinguih objects with our irlasses. Our fleet now for the first time I takes formation in form of a cross, some in file, the others in rank flank iar the center. Our little destroyers rather jauntily scoot around here and there but generally keep up the flank guards ana the point and rear defem-e.

While we are still traversing the North chan nel, airplanes and several dirigible balloons come out to meet as and hover around flying back and forth keeping sharp lookout for submarine which can be detected at a great depth from the We head in between the English coast and the Isle of Man.

Through out glasses we can observe the life ef tbe city, or rather the cities, for bath sides of the riier are built up solidly; we can even see tbe merrymakers on the beach at Birkerhead out toward the sea. Excurbkra boats crowded with people pass etery few minutes, and they wave and cheer warmest welcome to the American soldiers lining the rails of the various ships waiting turn to dock. ! We land and wait around several hours with nothing to4 do and no per mission to stray away. All the water front is gay "with American flags, which fly from every public building and business block in sight. The pass ing boats toot their whistles in salute continually. At last we receive orders to march across the city to the railway station for immediate entrainaient. At the head of our column as we pass through the gates of the dock enclosure into the street, ride two picturesque guides who look as if they might be veterans of half a century" of foreign wars erect, with white hair aad muetacbea. bodies slender but springy like an ash sapling, trim uniforms, these men fitly typify the British army of Kipling" s wntfatga.

People lean ont and watch from far ahead ef as to see the approachihg line of Americans, and the cheering aad clapping begin a block before the head of our column arrives and passes. The band plays lrvelt quicksteps. The people are more than friendly, they wave flags aad handkerchiefs and cheer, they run out from the curbs and shake the bands of the soldiers and officers; they had out all sorts ef mem ea toe or put ribbons on the uniform! of tits Americans, and girls throw garlands ef flowers around the necks f officers and men alike, or hand them bouquets of flowers as they tramp by.
