Red radicalism, which aims u» dis rupt and overthrow the people's gov ernment, seems in a fair way to disrupt American labor, if unchecked. Com promise and concessions have failed, but seem rather to aggravate and en courage a movement calculated to end only in class rule and the abolishment of popular govomin-nt President Wil son has taken a stand that - backed by the great American public win n he proclaims that the threaten* d c”'u strike will not be permitted. The people must lie protected: the rights of property and lie.’ must be upheld at, all costs. The coal miners go too far when they, to enforce their de mands, would bring suffering, famine, death and poverty to millions of help less people. We believe that the ma jesty of the government and the strong arm of the law is greet enough to meet any enemies of 'lie public welltare. at home or abroad A tight posing as a fight between labor and capital in which the inno cent bystander, the general public, fur nished all the casualties would he a travesty on justice and make of gov ernment a sham The time fast ap proaches when differences between la bor and capital must he adjusted by means other than ihe strike and tty peacable and orderly means, a means that will bring exact justice to all re gardless of who holds the biggest club. mju_imii'j jonuriT.TTn—rim r- a*mrmwvBAnc - ■.>«■»*m \Ve believe that President Wilson means business; we believe that con , gross means business; we know that the American public means business and will take up the challenge that red radicalism has flung in its face.

It is going to he hard to do. but reason teaches? us that it is the best way. We know that at best the damage and loss lias been great, but if ye have a chance to save the most possible out of the damage it will pay big to do it. It is the only pos sible way to get the benefit of the highest prices, whereas badly damaged and gin cat cotton has no fixed value It's a little bit awkward iti getting back to the old fashioned time again, The mornings seem long and noon a little slow in corning The clock is entirely too slow in marking a decent hour to go to bed. In a few days we will have adjusted ourselves again to natures own time and our clocks will be keeping step with the sun like all good clocks ought to do. The acorn crop was never better, and fortunate is the man that has an oak wood as part of his pasture. The hickory nuts cover the ground and the kids ought to be able to store away a good supply for next winter. Since acorns bring the ducks the hunters ought, to have some real sport later on.

Washington, Oct. 26.—Following lip 1 I President Wilson's virtual command to the coal miners to call off their j threatened strike in the bitin our j fields, government officials disclosed j today that the adoption of drastic j measures is contemplated in the event i fhat the unions defy*the executive and shut down the mines. i j The program of action discussed at | !:ie two cabinet meetinges yesterday: ; includes: Prosecution of union officials and 'also striking miners for violation of ; the war-time food and i'uei act and , i possibly for conspiracy to hinder vi ! tal operations of tlie government. Dispatch of regular army troops to j ihe mine fields to preserve order and protect miners who refuse to strike. I Government commanding of some, ! of not ail, soli coal mines in the event I of the strike assuming proportions I threatening interference with trams- j : portation and industrf on a large scale, i Prepare tor Action. Attorney General Palmer and Secre tary of War Baker were instructed by i tiie cabinet to proceed with propara-j tions for carrying out those plans for | dealing with the strike and each of (the department heads was giving con I sideration to the program today. | “We shall not lack the means of j carrying the president's decision into effect," said Attorney General Palmer | tonight. “Under both war and peace t laws there is ample ground for prose cutions of persons striking so terrible ! a blow at public welfare as would be j involved in the closing of the coal | mines." ! While prepared to deal aggressively 1 with any defense of the executive by 1 the United Mine Workers, cabinet of i licials will be astounded if the union | leaders persist in enforcing their strike, effective November 1. Confi dence prevails in official circles to night that the union chiefs will cal! off | the strike as soon as they realize what ! defiance of the government will in volve not only'4'criminal prosecutions, 'but in inevitable di •.as.raus defeat of the strikers. It conserve:ive councel ; prevails in the union camp it is no; I doubted that the striae will be called I off and the president's arbitration offer ; accepted ' I have beard nothing from the un i ion leaders today, though perhaps if i., | too earlv to expect any word," said I | Secretary oi Labor Wilson tonight. Lempers’ Aid Kxpeelctl. Government officials likewise are j confident that President Gompers of | the American Federation of Labor I will exert his influence to deter the ! miners from striking. Neither Mr. 1 Gompers nor Frank Morrison, secre tary of the federation, would discuss the situation brought about by the president s pronouncement, hut it was learned that Mr. Gompers is to have j a conference with his advisers on the | ; matter tomorrow and possibly talk! with the secretary of labor.
