Well! All right, Bill. the customs which , have failed ' in European monarchies. The present law, which has a penalty of. 1 3 dam ages, recoverable by a civil suit be fore. a magistrate, is to be amended by increasing the penalty to at least a $ 50 misdemeanor fine, ana to cover Sunday baseball, movies and all com mercialized spdjrt.V The new bill to come before the next Legislature is to be something: . like the Graham Bratton Bill, which was left pending last session. About thirty of the church and uplift agencies of the State are united in the effort, and sentiment is being made for electing members who will vote for this American rest day.

Joe Brown, Republican, represent ing the Chattanooga district in Con gress, has about decided not to be a candidate to succeed himself. Judge McReynolds, it is said, will be the Democratic nominee. Too Many Bond Issues. One of the best known men in Ten nessee, long prominent, learned in the law, experienced in public affairs and a patriot in .whom there is no guile, has sent what follows to the Banner: Plainly speaking, is not the gov ernment in our United States hasten ing to the precipice about in sight, to avoid plunging over which a repu diation or scaling of interest-bear-iDg bonds will engage the excited and perhaps angry attention of heavily taxed people? The bonded debt resting upon the people, when you consider that of the United States government, and that of the several States, counties and municipalities, is already stag gering in amount. But the outlook is that the Federal government will issue irom xnree 10 are uuuous more unemployment situation or in the of debt to pay what is called a bonus condition of the farmers. Bristol In defense of the highway board, it is said that much of the excess over I head is due to the red tape and tech-l nical requirements of the government bureau in the handling of Federal aid. , This is no doubt the case. It il lustrates the costliness and the utter I undesirability of an extension of I Federal bureaucracy to the manage ment of State affairs. Columbia! Herald.

So long as our products are off some two or three billion dollars a year, in dustrial workmen will be idle and the market for farm products will be weak. And so long as the adminis tration at Washington ignores this fact and does nothing to help restore the buying power of Europe, there will be no great improvement in the Marion S.

"The United Mine Workers are willingly to 'un reservedly pool their interests with railroad organization,'? and stand with them against the proposed at tack on their wage schedule,' John L. Lewis, international president of the mineworkers' union declared to day. An- invitation was extended the officers of 16 major organizations in railroad work to take part in a meeting with the miners." Beforo the war we had some kind of document at Washington to apply to trusts, a collusions, combines and such! Better get the old thing out and dust it up a bit. to the soldiers of the late war. The farmers' "bloc" is also demanding that the Federal government issue several hundred millions of bonds for the benefit of our farmers. And States, counties and municipalities are issuing bonds for all sorts of pur poses, good and otherwise. In addi tion to all this, the railroads of the country are preparing to issue mul tiplied millions of bonds to rehabili tate their roads The interest on all those bonds will have to be paid out of the surplus earnings of the productive industries of the people in the main Before this interest can be paid there is, in the nature of the situa tion, a prior claim and right of the people to live, and the payment of the necessary expenses incident to the operation of our government, Federal, State, county and municipal With a successive couple of crop failures, with the resulting- depres sion of other industries incident thereto, a situation would be faced exceedingly dangerous in its import It is time to stop, think and see whther we j.e going. The sender of this matter says It may suggest an idea which seems to me vital", and which you can prob ably fully and beneficially develop." The idea is indeed vital, and the correspondent has put it in suc cinct form that doesn't need elabora tion to make it clear. The Republicans in the Senate ap pear to have summoned the courage to raise the proposed soldier bonus by a direct tax, as Secretary Mellon says it must be raised. If that is done it will not be in the form of a new bond issue, but it will be, just the same, a lavish use of public money and add Herald-Courier.

Social advancement for public offi cials is a form of bribery that cannot I be brought into courts of criminal jurisdiction any more than it can be kept out of the court of public opin- ion. Memphis Commercial Appeal. The esteemed Banner says that the soldiers of the Spanish-American war received only $15 a month. The Ban ner is in error; the soldiers of that war received $ 15.60 a month. That being about all that they ever did or ever will get, it should be correctly stated. Columbia Herald.

Ridgely last week sold $60,000.00 worth of water works and sewerage bonds. Our neighbor-on-the-lake is progressing. "Is Sunday an American Mistake?" The argument of John Royal Har ris in his speech at the C. P. Church Thnrsday night, Jan. 26, was that for nearly three hundred and twenty-five years America has had the Sunday custom and supporting laws and decisions in , practically every State, and has developed the finest civilization on earth through thus conserving our man-power and our moral influences. Foreigners are now trying to force on us what is known as the continental Sabbath to make us like the lands from which they came. Their claim that our Sunday 'is an Invasion of personal and re ligious rights and unconstitutional amounts to the startling charge that at this late date, after all these re sults, they have come jlong and pointed out our mistake, which is a treat joke on us and our lega) lights If ii be true. Answering the charge that the Sunday edvocates are going against . the fennders of this, country who came here to escape religious op pression, he said: "They, are the name people who founded the Ameri can Sunday." Ho explained that the present - movement in Tennessee ie to combat these dangerous foreign agitators, 3 or we cannot run the republic on some national obligations. Chairman Fordney of the House Ways and Means Committee, still talks of get ting it out of interest on the foreign debt. That would mean a refunding of that debt with bonds indorsed by the United States. The bonded debt of the nation at the beginning of the present year totaled the enormous sum of $23,- 438,989,351. That is a Btaggoring sum of money, and under the best conditions it will be many years and long after the present generation has passed, that the annual interest' pay ments will cease to be a burden on the taxpayers and an impetus to na tional progress. Still every State, county, munici pality and private enterprise seems to have the propensity to stretch its credit to the utmost in the issuance of bonds, and as is said in what is quoted above, "the interest on all these bonds must in the main be paid out of the purplus earnings of pro ductive industry." If for some reason there should for several years be no such surplus, then there would be financial collapse, followed by do lorous times and perhaps by dire ca lamity. There should be a check to the ex travagance, xand especially to the bond issue practice, by which an ex travagant generation may fasten the consequence of its prodigality on a future generation. But the evil re sults are not always postponed, and those who sow the wind sometimes reap the whflwlna.- - The man who sent the Banner the matter quoted Is still in active life with a close survey and acute com prehension of what Is passing, though his judgment is seasoned that if they have business they must more and more look to the Federal government, and they are finding out also that the Federal govern ment already is laying heavy burdens on them for upkeeping of Its myrmi dons of Federal officials.
