The root of our troubles to day is lying official lying, un official lying, deliberate lying and imitative lying, says The New Republic. The people of this country begin to know that. The Supreme-Council at Paris has acknowledged it. All l::c hysterical intolerance of these days originated in the central lie about Russia. The Rusian lie is the father of lies. For lie, miserable, sneaking lie, it has been. It was a lie that the people of Russia were calling for military intervention. . It was a lie that they believed in Kolchak and Denikin. It was a lie that they did not prefer the Soviet government to anything offered them by he Al lied generals and the monarchist cliques. It was a lie that they had na tionalized their women. It was a lie that they had na tionalized their children. It was a lie that they proposed to invade a peaceful Europe. It wa a- lie that we remained at .Archangel to guard stores. It was a lie that Soviet Russia declined the Prinkipos proposal. It was a lie that Soviet Russia had not offered peace with honor and wTith guarantees. . And because these lies were the base of a policy of lawless invasion, disgraceful intrigue, hloodshed, devastation and fam ine, they have had to be estab lished by every device known to panic and credulity. As the result of these lies a- bout Russia the world has been filled with persecution, coward ice and distrust. If the stupid nonsense that the mediums pretend to get from the spirit is the best chin-music that the disembodied souls can hand out, it is high time for somebody to remark, "What fools these im mortals bel" THE FOOL-KILLFR, ABSOLUTELY INIMICAL." Legislative representation has been denied the Socialist partv in New York, and 60,000 voters dis- ranchised,- because the Jackass- embly of that state has decided hat the platlorm ot the Socialist party is 'absolutely inimical to he interests ot both state and nation." Just why a few dozen preiu- diee-blind political pap-suckers, armed with a little brief authori ty, are so much better Qualified to say what is "absolutely ini mical" than 60,000 American voters, is a mystery that has not been cleared up yet. In the state of Michigan a huckleberry by the name of Newberry ran for the United States Senate against Henry Ford. On the face of the re- urns the "berry" was elected. But charges of fraud and corrup- lon were brought up, and now he "berry", has been tried and convicted and sentenced to two years in the penitentiary. Did the United States Senate rise up and apply the toe of its number ten to Senator" New berry and kick him out? Not enough so that you would notice it. No-sir-ee-bob ! : He is a "good Republican." and the Republican majority in the benate is uncomtortably small, and they need "Senator" New berry in their business. Ot course it would never do to lose a perfectly good Republican Senator on account of such a lit tle thing as his having bought the office and corrupted the elec torate of a great state. Evidently it is the sense of the Senate that wholesale election frauds and spending: money to buy a seat' in the Senata is not serious enough to be classed as "absolutely inimical to the inter ests of both state and nation." Crime and corrupion in politics are rather honorable accomplish ments when committed- by Re publicans or Democrats. But just let a Socialist be guil ty of something not half so bad, ana he will be nuns: m about sev enteen languages before you could say scat.. Unless Newberry has decen cy enough to resign he will re main a Senator in good standing. If he is brazen enough to do it he can occupy his bought seat m that august body and vote on all questions arid have his vote counted. And he will never serve a dav of his twro years' term in the pen. You can just gamble on that. But there is Berger, the Socia list, who was twice elected to Congress, and twice kicked out although nobody disputed that he was HONESTLY elected, and he was not guilty of any crime at all except the crime of being an honest man and saying that he didn t believe m the war. You never see Berger men tioned in the plute papers as "Congressman Berger." He is lust old Berger. But it's "Senator Newberrv this and "Senator Newberry' that, until it's enough to make i dog sick. BOOMER, N. C. And there is Debs, the great-1 hearted friend of humanity, the silver-tongued orator, whose shoes Newberry is not worthy to black, and Debs is dying by inch es in the Atlanta Federal Peni tentiary for no crime at all ex cept the crime of belonging to the party whose platform is ab- soluely inimical." It amount to just this: The plutes can commit any crime they please and it is all right. " , No hint of danger to our "sac red institutions." No big scare about "overthrow ing the government." Oh, no ! But any man or party that has got backbone enough to buck up against the great plute machine -Gee Whiz ! Why, that's "abso utely inimical," don't you know 1 WHY WE STAYED OUT. Well, honey, it begins to look ike we-unses here in the old U. S. ain't very keen to get into the great League of Nations. In fact, it looks like we have given it a mighty cold shoulder considering that our own darling Woodrow went to Paris and made it and fotched it home in his vest pocket. Most everybody thought away back then that the League of Na tions was the real truck, and they all took for granted that Uncle Sam .would certainly jme it in some way or other. But now, bless yer gizzard, it seems that Uncle Sam prefers to play in his own yard, and if Eu rope wants a League she will have to make it and run it all by herself. Now some folks may think it was just partisizan politics that kept us out of the League, just because the Republican Sena tors wanted to be contrary. But there is a deeper reason than that. If you will dig down into your old Bible and find out what the League of Nations real ly is, and study the teritory that it is designed to cover, you can readily understand why the United States COULD NOT be come an active member of it. The great Image that Nebu chadnezzar saw in a dream, as recorded in the second chapter of Daniel, is universally admitted to be the Sacred Calendar of Prophecy. It represents the history of the four successive Gentile empires to which sover eign supremacy in the earth was transferred from the Jewish na tion when the latter became un faithful. A different representation of the same four empires was given to Daniel in his vision of Four Beasts which came up out of the sea, as recorded m the seventh chapter of Daniel. You will no tice that the fourth beast had ten homs, which means the same as the ten toes of the Image. The legs and feet of the Image represent the ,Roman Empire. And the ten-horned fourth beast also represents the Roman Em pire. That is one point on which all students of prophecy agree. So it must undoubtedly be right. Now here we come to the point that concerns the League of Na APRIL, 1920. tions. The original Roman Em pire has seemingly been out of existence tor a long time. It has been broken up and changed so that it does not seen to be the Roman Empire any more. But many of the best Bible students contend that the nations which now exist in the old Roman terri tory are in reality a continua tion of the Roman Empire. And some the deepest thinkers on the subject are strongly of the opin ion that the Roman Empire is to be re-established on exactly the same territory that it occupied before: It will not be CALLED the Roman Empire, of course, but it will represent the final phase" of the last Gentile domin ion. It will consist of ten na tions divided equally between the Eastern and Western divisions of the old territory of the Cae sars. The legs were created dur ing the Empire's former exis tence, by the division into the Eastern and Western parts, about 394 A. D. But the ten toes have never been exactly de fined. The ten toes five on each foot -must be in existence when they are struck by the Stone cut out of the mountain. The Stone, of course, represents the Fifth Universal Empire, the Millennial Kingdom of Christ. Now it seems reasonable to me that the present wholesale read justment of national boundary lines . in Europe the tearing down and setting up of nations--will finally result in just exactly the right number of states with in the old Roman territory. And these states must be bound to gether in a Federation similar to what the League of Nations would be. And any territory that lies outside of the realm of the ancient Caesars Cannot be included. That's why the Irish question is so hot just now because Ire land is outside territory and must be separated from England; That s why France got part of Germany because that portion was in the Roman Empire, while the rest ot Germany was not. We see that Germany is not to be admitted as a member of the League, and this explains why. Likewise, we see that Russia is refused admittance, and we can now see the plain prophetic reason ot it because Russia is outside of the old Roman Em- pire. And the United .States, we all know, is far removed from Cae- sear s territory, and that is the divine prophetic reason why the Senate of the United States re fused to ratify the Peace Treaty with the League of Nations in it." Now do you know ? One time about two thousand years ago it was just as big a crime to be a "Jesusite" as it is now to be a "Russellite." Did you over let that thought roost on the front elevation of your think-box. me legislature ot North Caro lina should be eternally-thankful to the legislature of New York for relieving it of the disgrace of being the most wooden-headed legislative body on earth. mi. .l 'li - . .
