"TOO FAR FROM THE BOWERY"
IN THE newspaper parlance of New York city a news event
which,-though a good "story" by itself; originated in the
"provinces," is "too far from the Bowery" to warrant much
space in the metropolitan dailies.
The importance of news to a newspaper and its readers di
.misnes in direct proportion to the distance from its origin,
save in cases where some special significance may be attached
to the item at its place of publishing. Just so the intensity of a
sound becoming less in proportion to the distance the ear is from
So it is with the story of the British labor crisis. We are apt
10 count it dry reading, to pass it by as only "another strike in
England," as "too far from the Bowery." This rule of diminish
ing ratio of the importance of news, applied to the gigantic
Etrike of 6,000 miles away, is unfortunate. It blinds us to the
Magnitude of what gives promise of being one of the most tre
mendous upheavals the world has known.
If the strike called for Friday materializes; if 4,000,000 men
quit work, paralyzing the vital industries of Great Britain; if
the terrific force of the labor movement in the island continues
to gather, it seems likely that the Lloyd George coalition govern
ment will be crowded into a general election an all-important
event in England.
Should such an election be forced by a gathering tide of labor-power,
it is an even chance that this force would be suffi
cient to uproot the coalition government of today, as well as the
conservative and liberal parties which once composed it, and
into which it has slowly been breaking up again.
A labor party in power would assuredly make sweeping
changes in the rule of English life, in the essential things which
have given England such a powerful hold on her peoples
throughout the world the peculiar British colonizing charac
teristics, the cement which has held "the greatest empire that
has been" together.
Ireland might be expected to gain her independence and the
fissure which was apparently stopped n South Africa by the
Smuts election would likely split further and widen the gap be
tween the southern colony and the motherland. The intensely
American-like governments of Canada, New Zealand and Aus
tralia might well feel themselves estranged from an England so
tremendously changed. In all these nations there have been
particularly since the war, parties advocating a severance of the
ties with the Empire. A successful industrial revolution in the
British Isles would be a powerful stimulus to their contention.
The strike which has been called for Friday may well serve
as the match to this powder mill. Upon it may hinge the solid
arity or dissolution of the most tremendous empire the world has
Been. The news of these events may seem remote, dry reading,
"too far from the Bowery," but it is tremendously significant.
