STRICT Sabbatarianism seems to be organizing ir. a very
comprehensive way in all parts of the country. The Rev.
Wilbur F. Crafts of the International Reform bureau, an
active lobbyist and propagandist at Washington, is in the fore- j
ground, but the principal agency seems to be the Lord's Day al
liance, whose secretary is the Rev. Harry Bowlsby. The Rev.
Bowlby asserts that sixteen denominations indorse the move
ment, while a seventeenth, the Lutherans, "are with us." "Only
the Roman Calholics, the Unitarians, the Seventh Day Advent
ists, and the Jevrs are outside this movement," he told an inter
viewer for the Philadelphia Public Ledger.
In this interview, which appeared last fall, the Rev. Bowlby
was quoted to the following effect: "
"We are well financed. Our lobby at Washington will be an
effective and experienced one. We shall work in every con
gressional district in every state. We shall agitate and spread
propaganda and cause voters to write unceasingly to their lep
rcsentatives in congress until no congressman who cares to stay
in congress will dare refuse to vote for our measures. These
were the methods used by the Anti-Saloon league, and they were
A hint bf easy and rapid organization is here given. The men
and women who had paid employment in the prohibition move
ment find that occupation gone, but the Sabbatarian movement
can take them over and make use of their skill and experience.
Thus a complete organization, nation-wide, is available at little
effort. The W. C. T. U. has taken an interest also.
The spirit of the movement seems to be expressed in the inter
view with the Rev. Bowlby already quoted. Here is the pro
gram as reported in the Ledger interview :.
"We propose to pass no blue laws. There are no such things
as bluelaws never were. And we propose, by legislation, to
make it easier for people to go to church. In other words, we
shall try to close the baseball parks, the golf links, the motion
picture and other theatres, the concert halls, the amusement
parks, the bathing beaches and so on. We shall fight all amuse
ments where an admission fee is charged. We shall oppose
golf, tennis, baseball, football, and other sports, even if purely
amateur and void of financial cost to those watching or taking
part because they set bad examples for children who might oth
erwise be content to go to Sunday school. We shall seek to re
strict the sale of gasoline for pleasure automobiles, and urge
other measures that will stop Sunday automobiling and joy rid
ing. This will not brine the old fashioned horse and buergy
back, because we believe that the Lord's day should be a day of
rest for man and beast. Excursion steamer rifies on Sunday will
be opposed by us on the ground
moral welfare of Christian America.
We also learn that the Rev. Bowlby sees no reason why pub
lie libraries or art galleries should remain open on Sunday, and
not only are Sunday newspapers to be abolished but "we shall
seek to establish a censorship over the stuff that gets into them
on other days."
The reader who is inclined to smile at this as a' futile fanati
cism is not wise. There is a very large part of our population
which does not have access to Sunday recreations, newspapers,
libraries and art galleries. In rural districts and small towns
this is the case where tradition and social custom are yielding
but slowly to modern conceptions of what is wholesome and
permissible. Men are usually willing to prohibit to others what
they do not care for themselves, and it is easy to rouse our moral
enthusiasm for imposing upon our neighbors a code which is
satisfactory to us. Respect for freedom of conscience ha3 not
marked our history at all times since the men and women who
left England in the seventeenth century ior the freedom of wor
ship in their own way persecuted those within their gate3 who
asked no more than the same freedom.
This is the twentieth century and not the seventeenth, but the
disposition to tyrannize over our fellow men under the guise of
religion and morality has not disappeared. One would think
that freedom of conscience needs no defense in America in our
day, but it does, and the Sabbatarian movement proves it. That
defense cannot be allowed to rest with the public intelligence.
It needs as thorough organization and as active propaganda as
Sabbatharianism is employing. Chicago Tribune.
It was a wonderful show; the crowd large and enthusiastic
and the weather man did his part nobly.
It will be noted that Dr. Brumfeld quickly recovered his
panity when that jailer drew his g-un.
Now that the Round-Up is over, the disarmament confer
ence can proceed without interference.

MEXICO CITY, Sept. 26 Econo
mists in Mexico are flmVng that ex
periments in protection call for ns
much caution as experiments In chem
istry. The latest experiment to fail was
protection of the flour mills. The gov
ernment has now decided to remove
the new import duty on flour, begin
ning October 1.
Millers, among whom are many In
fluential men in Mexico, a few months
ago appealed to the government for
relief, saying that because of the high
price of wheat In Mexico they were
unable" to operate with a profit and
compete with the cheaper flour ship
ped here from foreisn mills.
Accordingly ,a decree was issued re
quiring importers to pay duty on ship
ments of flour. This proved satisfac
tory to millers and wheat growers, but
was not so pleasing to bakers and con
sumers, especially as Mexico's crop
shortage threatens high food prices
this fall and winter. Conviction that
Mexico will need foreisn flour and
from the bargain counter this winter,
it is said, has caused the decision to
remove the import duty.
Many other steps have been taken
to prevent. If possible, d stress during
the coming winter and to stimulate in
dustry, one of these was the reduc
tion of the export duty on homorimn
from six to two cents. This was in the !
ho;e of improving conditions in Yu
catan and neighboring states, where
there is at present great depression,
due to stagnant industry and the agi
tation of radicals.
But the government has refused to
reduce the export tax on metals, and
this has caused surprise, as hundreds
of silver mines, which made efforts
to r?sume operations during the past
year, have been closing down because
of alleged inability to meet expenses
and pay the present taxes.
When the refusal of the government
was announced at the office of Secre
tary of the Treasury de la Tuerta, it
was explained that both Germany and
Rusaia were preparing to coin vast
amounts of silver currency and that
this gave assurance of an advance In
the price of the metal.
If the advance in silver comes and
is large enough to stimulate active
production on a large scale, it will be
a great relief to Mexico, as thousands
of miners are reported to be in idle
ness in the mining states.
Still another advance is needed, and
that is in oil. The present suspension
of industry in the oil fields in the vi
cinity of Tampico has had a far
reaching effect and will he felt more
poignantly as winter approaches.
Practical suspension of oil exporta
tion has deprived the Mexican govern
ment of an important source of reve
nue, and this revenue :s badly needed.
With the income from the oil fields,
the Mexican government has been
able to do much to relieve conditions
in many sections by carrying on pub
lic work. And it will be hard to con
tinue this work without the returns
from the oil fields and at the same
t ine meet other expenses.
Tampico and its surrounding terri
tory have also given employment to
thousands who have been unable to
get work in their own sections of Mex
ico, and if these thousands mwt acat
ter through the country it w'.u increase
local problems, which are already se
rious enough in many cases. In addi
tion to this, Mexico is not so far re
moved from the days of revolution
that It need not feel uneasy about hav
ing a large element that Is idle, dis
contented and needy.

it was unwarranted action by Ameri
can oil producers to force terms from
the Mexican government, but now
that Dutch, English and other foreign
producers in the Vera Cruz fields are
unable to ship it is admitted here that
the shutdown was due to economic
and not political causes.
Oil men here say that the big com
panies in the region of Tampico are
showing their honesty of purpose by
continuing development and drilling
new wells in preparation for the time
when it will be possible to resume
shipments of oil on a large scale.
Complaint has been made here and

has problems which will tax the intel
ligence and generosity of the nation,
