J The Newberry case, just decided by the United States
Supreme Court, bring vividly to mind some momentous facts
in American history,
j In 1916, the nation was given a campaign slogan that
sounds strange indeed as we look back across the interven
ing years "He kept us out of War." Few thoughtful Amer
icans, now or ever, have believed that its most feverish pro
ponents actually believed the implication
' That he would continue to keep us out of war. Indeed,
tjie hydra-headed administration campaign argument pro
claimed with one head that it was preparing as never before
in American history, for the war that was likely to come;
even While the other head vociferated the cowardly cry of
Peace for Profit. The moral issues raised by the Lusitania,
by the invasion of Belgium, by the unparalleled robbery of
industrial France, was no new revelation in April, 1917,
when the -President formally declared that America could
and these things no longer
They were already almost three years old!
The American part of the war, inevitable from the be
nning, began shortly after this colossal deception had been
pUt across in the 1916 election. By the year 1918, the pec
e knew. the. whole dreadful story; though they supported
the President, loyally, royally, in the war, they were clamor
ous for revenge.
j Fatuously, the administration issued its incredible plea
fdr all Americans to forsake their political beliefs, and re
turn to the President a blindly partisan endorsement. This
was not a mere incident it was a deliberate, studied as
sault... The President had made his earlier campaign on a
pea for unpreparedness for the struggle that he must have
known was inevitable; every home in America was to pay
pirt of the price in treasure, in blood. When the President
brought every power of the administration to bear in carry-
ing out this un-American plan of suppressing free thought,
especially In Michigan where the pacifist Henry Ford was
the administration candidate, there were just two courses
for the people to choose from: Submit, or fight,
s j' Newberry fought. There is no doubt that he violated
th,e written law, or rather the congressional regulation that
the Supreme Court now says is not a legal law. He spent
more money than should ever be spent in any election. It
ljouldn't have been necessary to spend much money, even
in legitimate ways, for such a campaign when the free
born people of fighting America were ordered by an auto
cratic deceiver to give up their franchise. But he spent it,
wnicn ne oia not deny; and he won.
1 They said he was guilty.
j And yet, there are cases when to disobey a law may be
almost an honor, and to obey is criminal cowardice. Most
men believe that this Newberry case is of this kind. The
; written law said that no candidate should spend more than
a "reasonable" sum for his election. A far hizher moral
law, however, says that the President shall keep his hands
oil tne irancnise of the American people
j The people whom his campaign slogan of "kept us out of
war naa almost ruined, body and soul.
' - j There was no legal penalty prescribed for his using all
the vast power of the government, to defeat the rxmular will
in Michigan; he cunningly took no legal chance in trying to
subvert American freedom into a Kaiserlich autocracy. New
berry fought him, beat him in the election; and now the
court, on another pretext, but with all this as a reason, has
just said that Newberry was right. What the people thought
ofl it as a whole, was registered in the 1920 election.
; . j If Newberry had been a Croker plug-ugly, buying or in
timidating votes for the money or the power there was in it,
thje country might well be alarmed at the action of the Su
preme Court. As it is, the rights of the plain American were

Following are some excerpts
froru the current weekly financial
letter of Henry Clews, the Wall
Street banker and authority on
the affairs of the business world:
"Announcement of the terms
for a reparations adjustment, proposed-by
Germany, has seemed
to furnish sood warrant for the
optimistic hopes and expectations
which have maintained the ex
change market during recent
weeks. The developments of the
past few days have made it less
certain than appeared at first
that the conclusion of the repar
ations discussion had been
reached. Nevertheless, the Bee'
ond proposal of Germany is re
cognized as a step toward a prac
tical financial adjustment. In the
opinion of local bankers such an
adjustment, when arrived at. will
undoubtedly be actively furthered
by American financiers. EARLY

'Domestically, the significant
phase of the present business and
Investment prospect is seen in
connection with the deflation
which is advancing so effectively.
Federal reserve notes are now off
about $.20, 000, 000 from the
point reached a year ago, while
there has been a reduction in bills
discounted of over $700,000,000.
A total of only about $2,187,000.

federal reserve system certainly
does not appear large, especially
when considered in he light of
steadily 'increasing gold reserves.
WHICH ARE $381,000,000
HIGHER THAN THEY WERE
ONE YEAR AGO. The llqulda
tion has undoubtedly progressed
very rapidly within the past two
or three months. One of the best
evidences of it is afforded by the
cut in outstanding deposits of na
tional banks, which, according to
the controller of the currency s
figures just issued, have fallen
off about $1,500,000,000 from the
high point of approximately $17,
000,000,0000, which bad been
reached last year.

obvious in the textile industries,
notably silk, and In automobiles,
but it is now extending itself in
to building, where a decided re
vival is under way, besides reach
ing into several other industries,
seme of which are engaged in
supplying building material. The
revival has not reached the steel
trade In any marked degree, al
though employers report that con
ditions there are more hopeful,
and that there is a better tone in
the business than has been true
within recent weeks. A rather
'arger freight Piorement is also
reported on a number of the rail
roads and there is indication that

And these items come upon the
heels of the dancing masters' con
vention In Paris at which they
resolved to discontinue imjnoral
dancing and restore the more se
date Terpslchorean measures to
popularity. They also follow a
decree by the Paris dressmakers
that cloths must be more volumi
nous and the female form divine
a shade more inconspicuous.
It is the swing of the pendu
lum, messieurs. Even France
is admitting it has swung to Its
extreme limit in the other direc
tion. The clock has been alto
gether too speedy and needs reg
ulating. It has been trying to
crowd 100 minutes Inte an hour,
but astronomical science remains
unmoved. Morality will stand
for an occasional eclipse, but in
sists upon strictly temporary in
novations of this kind. We may
have our shady days, but the
wholesome sunshine of common
decency will always assert itself.
The movement towards inter
nal reform began In this country,
but is evidently spreading. Anl
when even Paris, which once
prided itself upon Its superabun
dance of moral eclipse, craves the

scientists can safely predict that

There is no gap In" the line of
immigrants at the dcor. Over
606,000 passports for America
were certified by American con
suls in Europe last year and this
does not represent all the alien
arrivals here by a long shot.
L'ven now more than 60,000 Poles
are awaiting transportation. There
are not nearly ships enough in
commission to accommodate the
hordes of invaders mostly peace
ful, but some deadly. The bill
now under debate !n congress
would limit the admission cf
aliena for the 14 months begin
ning May 10 to 3 per cent of :hc
nationality rec'.dent in the United
States according; to the census of
1910. This would still permit
the coming of thousand! of unde
sirables, but it would materially
reduce the present flow. It would
make possible the bringing in of
over 3.-.5.000 immigrants from
Europe alone. It would welcome
more than 75,000 from Germany,
50,000 from Austria, 40,000 from
Italy and 60,000 from Russia and
