Assailing what it characterizes as the "weak-kneed" diplomacy
of the (Jovcrnmcnt the Japanese Kokuniin, of Kokyo, says as
translated for the Literary Digest: "The Japanese 'government
and people have been courteous to the point of hypocrisy in deal
ing with America. Instead of appreciating this exhibition of io-
ilitciiess on the part of Japan, the 1'nited States has been impos
ing upon us, apparently taking it as a confession of our inability
to cope with American insolence and egotism. In the face of
such results repeatedly offered us by America, what irony, what
nonsense, to urge Japan's participation in the Panama-Pacific
Imposition. The Japanese should learn to give vent to their feel
ings more freely, lest their good intention" may be misinterpreted
bv the inconsiderate."

A line line of reasoning indeed. One would he led to believe by the

they alone are entitled lu wear good clothes, and that until a poor man litis

It is reported that the executive officers of the United Mine Workers
of America have nppealed to President Wilson to "intercede" 4tr Mother
Jones, who has been imprisoned in Colorado for two months by military
order. From which it would seem that the writ of habeas corpus is still
suspended in the Trinidad mining region.
Mary Jones, aged Nl!, went to Colorado armed only with her tongue.
That tongue is evidently more dreaded by the Colorado coal barons than
an army with banner. And yet, in an interview in the New York Times,
Mother Jones is quoted as' saying.
''I am no more in sympathy with dynamite in the hands
of labor leaders than I am with embezzlement as a practice among
financiers. I believe that strikes arc going to stop, not because
capital will choke labor till it hasn't breath left for the effort of
a strike, or because labor will smash capital until it hasn't money
left to light with, but because I think intelligence will grow among
employers rind employed until, presently, we shall find strikes iiiite
It may be that Mother Jones was going to say something quite differ
ent from this to the strikers in Colorado. She is credited with being very
outspoken. !"die does not mince matters. Hut the thing is, she wanted to
talk, and the right of free speech, for her at least, could not be tolerated
just now, no matter what she might have to say. However, if it hail been
thought that she would talk nonsense, she might have been left at liberty.
It is a wonderful compliment to un S2-ycar-old woman that a military
gag must be put in her mouth to prevent the State of Colorado from going
to the dogs. Post Dispatch.

to arise necessitating interference on the part of our government.
The war litis been going on in that country for a long time and
foreigners of every nationality have had ample opportunity to go
home. And those who have failed to leave are acting on their
own responsibility. It would be folly to throw the nation into
a bloodv war, sacrificing thousands of lives and millions of dol

Miss Anne Morgan, daughter of her deceased distinguished
dad, John Picrpont Morgan, who plundered and looted to the
extent of his power and was washed pure in the blood of the
lamb, is a great friend to working girls. At least so we
to believe. She is one of the patronizing, philanthropic
of parasites who feel that if they spit on the poor they
receive it as baptism.
Recently Miss Morgan was interviewed in regard to the
problem of working girls, and in answer to the first question
put to her, she broke out with:
"Please don't make me use the expression 'working
girl' in this interview. If there is one phrase that
should be eliminated from the Knglish language, it is
that one. All women work, always have worked, always
will work."
Isn't this truly delicious? All women certainly do work,
but the work some of them do is to work the workers, dress
and gorge themselves, and undress and disport themselves at
Seeley dinners, and of course they are in the same class, accord
ing to Miss Morgan, with the factory girls and department store
drudges that for a pittance work like slaves and are never ahead
enough to allow themselves a square meal or u decent garment.
It is easy to understand why Miss Morgan gets riled when
reference is made to "working girls." She doesn't want these
girls to realize that they are in a class of their own, that they
are slaves, and that they have to unite and make common cause
against the parasites that are sucking their life-blood while look
ing down upon them with a lofty contempt as if they were so
many animals.
The worst enemies of these working girls, these wage-slaves,
are such pretended friends as Miss Anne Morgan, who patron
izingly drop them a bone now and then to quiet their discontent
and elicit their grateful homage. Kxchange.

With the construction of the immense drainage system by the Little

make possible by observing the following admonitions of the Journal of
Agriculture and Star banner, for every farmer within the overflow section
to reclaim every foot of his land.

Don't be content with raising marsh grass on muck and peat marshes.
Drainage is the step that begins their adaptability to tame grouss and other
farm crops.
Don't condemn the much and peat marshes on which timothy has died
out once. Drain t h"i oinJily and then apply barnyard manure or commer
