The statement of Duncan Mc Donald, president- of the Illinois Federation of Labor, that, "if the position of the, government is to be taken as a precedent,, there fs no such thing as freedom of ctmtracti ana the entire issue might as well be fought out now," also was inter preted as being the sentiment . of many of the approximately 425,000 men v who went , on strike nearly two weeks ago... ,,: , ., : Stirs l'p Insurgents.

Observers of Great ! Britain's financial problems attach '. ! . ' . .. some sigmncance to a suggestion made recently' that the main burden of 'paying off the hiige national debt created by the war should tie laid upon the Church of England and the Church of Scotland, more par ticularly on the former. The pro posal is that all their property, in cluding Westminster Abbey should be sold and converted into cash for the relief of the debt-afflictea coun try. The attention attracted by ' the idea is due largely to its course, it being brought forward by the Sta tistic, one of the widely read Jour nals of finance and trade. The writer of the article asserts that the annual interest charge of 50d, 000,000 pounds which he estimates that England is facing, will hang like a mill stone around the na tion's neck unless some means is: found to set rid of it. ! . .Hence, the necessity of making a large hole in the debt "by one large saennce, witn inose wno nave me muni uuuey vuumuuuu uio tuuai in the emergency. .
