WHY. CONGRESS IS CENSURED

ground for this censure and there will be more of it un
less a marked improvement is shown
After four months of delay the Knox-Porter peace resolu
tion was passed. There was no blare of trumpets over this
resolution. There could be no elation because the step was
retrogressive, rather than constructive! (The main issue is yet
to be faced and that has to do with the treaty, to be made with
Germany. Nothing was settled by the so-called peace resolu
tion. , '
In making a separate peace with Germany the United States
will now approach the task with hands tied. We have with
drawn our troops and officially declared the war over without
any stipulation as to what the settlement shall be. American
claims amounting to many millions are uncared for; not "one
point involved in the war has been settled. In making the new
treaty Germany will have as big a voice as Uncle Sam. Berlin
can object to anything they do not want and this country will
be helpless, unless we wish to resume the war. The defeated
power can dictate to the victor if it so wishes, and it will so wish.
But that is not the only predicament the country faces from
the behavior of congress during the last four months. Not a
thing has been done towards any plan for peace through a
league or association of nations. We are where we were when
we entered the war, only the situation is worse, because new
methods of war waging make the armament problem more com
plicated and more expensive. Ninety-three per cent of the fed
eral income still goes for war purposes and there is no relief in
One of the chief causes of recent criticism has been the ad
ministration effort throuirh a bill by Senator Penrose to allow
the secretary of the treasury at his will to extend time of pay
ment of the allied debt to America and to allow that officer at
his will to acceDt bonds of other countries in payment
As analyzed by Senator McKellar (Dem., Tenn.), the pro
posed plan is for the United States to swap its indebtedness, 99
per cent of which probably is good, and to take German, Aus
trian or Turkish bonds for it Senator McKellar charged that
the bill is an effort to help our late allies to repudiate their
debts and rive us a lot of worthless bonds for them.
In other words, the allies would discharge their obligations
to the United States, which are good and collectible, by turning
over to this government the bonds and securities they receive
from the Central Powers in payment of reparations.
Naturally that is not a line of business calculated to bolster
confidence in our Washington officials,. in congress or out.
Much of the press criticism of congress is based on the delay
in reducing expenses -and in revising the tax laws. Dubious
voices are also being raised over the tariff bill. Mid-west Re
publicans are almost solidly in revolt against the proposal for
a duty on lumber and they charge that Chairman Fordney of
the house committee i3 personally interested in a lumber tariff
because he has investments in timber and lumber.
Probably the most sensational development just at present
is that relating to the Anglo-Japanese treaty. That is a mat
ter of vital interest to the United States because we have an
issue to settle with Japan and we don't like the idea of a Japan
British alliance. Were we in the League of Nations or any
other effective association of nations, there would be no trouble
.n this score because neither England nor Japan would need
an alliance. However, we are not in the league nor has Presi
dent Harding offered any substitute, and here we are wonder
ing if our navy i3 as big as it should be, considering what the
future may have in store. . The situation may be fairly charged
up to the policies, or lack of policies, at Washington in recent
All in all, a leaderless congress is marking time or back
stepping at a period when conditions are serious and people
desire positive, constructive leadership. Many people are ex
pressing earnest hopes that President Harding will take hold of
the situation with firm hands and direct affairs along big,
broad lines conducive, to national and world welfare. The op
portunity is open to him 'and most people will applaud if he
shows himself a real president. He snouid not wait too long.
