Perhaps they needed the outing
and rest from the laBors of business
to be obtained by watching the au
tics of politician#, but one wou'd
^.also be right in concluding that they
recognized t.lie close relation be
tween business and politics. They
•'knew the importance of having no
.'-effective laws against profiteering,
•j no enforcement of anti-trust acts
and of railroad rebates possible un
der private ownership. We might
kdd also the importance of having
legal machinery to browbeat far
mers and workers who do not as
yet grasp this relation of business
and poHtlos as well as they do.
There 'is every reason for believ
tag that the big family left well
pleased with the week's outing. And

Rather than blame Judge Mack,
however, for the Wood escape and
the escape, of thousands like him we
would put. it at the doors of con

against profiteering^ and we prefei
to see judges interpret the law, strict

County elections in Ireland leave
those who have pictured the Irish
lately as a lawless people but little
to stand on. Little, that is, if we ac
cept as Abe fundamental definition
of tbat law which men ought to ob
serve the duly expressed will of the
majorty of the ciltizens. For a long
time the sentiment of the voters of
Ireland has been more than two to
one for independence and now comes
ithe county elections, which the par
ties for independence carry not only
in Catholic- Ireland but Ulster Ire
land as well.
Out of a total of 899 officers to
be filled in county governments the
•Sinn Felners, as a distinct -party
captured 525. The combined forces
of the Sinn Felners, Labor and Na
tionalist parties captured 590 seats.
There was an agreement between
the Sinn Fein and Labor parties in
Leinster, Munster and Conaught
not to oppose each other but to un
ite so that the people could express
themselves for or against British
British government agents, of
course, have much to say about law
lessness in Ireland and explain the
presence of an army of occupation
as a means of maintaining law and
order. They may be maintaining
the law and order of the British em^
pire and some will maintain that
this is the proper thing to do, but no
one can honestly maintain that the
hrtttsh fntrcM are upholding the law
and order of democracy, because
the people of Ireland have voted
many times by large majorities
against British rule. Perhaps many
good English Christians can now ap
preciate as never before how hard
it must have been for Pharoah to
let the people of Israel go.

is signiflcent of tM: turn of affairs in

before the war and fell' because he
took the position that Italy could

A hostile reviewer compares hi

call the attention of the editor o1
the Journal to another bull in tlx
