TH h DAILY CA P1TAL ) HIRNAL, SALEM. OREGON, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1919. fAC THRE? Lodge 9 s Leadership Indicated From Chicago Post. Eepubllcan) The country la on the verge of a coal strike; it is passing through the costly last chapter of a steel strike; and a congress with a majority repre senting the historically constructive republican party, has not turned a hand to legislate upon the threatening indautrial conditions which these strikes represent. - More than that, the republican sen ate has thrown every element of pas sion, prejudice and delay against the ratification of the peace treaty, an event which every business observer has set down as the most promising starting point of real economic" read justment. And finally, there is no Indication that the republican senate has any in tention of facing the industrial reali ties and clearing the field of the treaty by the simple compromise that has been the result evident from the first Look back over the almost endless varieties of attack that have been threatened, framed and then dissipat ed by every test of actual voting. Lodge and his followers, including, we regret to say, Sherman and McCor mlck, both senators from Illinois started by threatening to kill the whole treaty; then they were going to cut the covenant of the league of na tions from the treaty and kill the t covenant; then they were going to amend it. Now, finally, they have de vised a string of doomed "reserva tions," which remove the United 'States from any participation In the league and require Great Britain, France and Japan to 0. k. that re moval. Each one of these waves of assault has been backed byappeals to preju dice as devilish In their cunning as they are unscrupulous in their disre gard of national unity and America's responsibility to her allies and to the I world. Sherman introduced the relig-l lous hatred; McCormick fostered the Irish prejudice; Reed, a democrat, brought in the race prejudice; Borah lugged In the Wall Street prejudice; Johnson played up the Japanese men ace; Knox stirred the German-Ameri can hyphenism. And yet, these men have lost every single vote on the floor of the senate. They have absolutely no construct ive result of any kind to show to off set the sins they have committed against American solidarity and Am erican honor. The defeat of the Johnson "6 to 1" amendment, representing the strong est combined appeal of all passion and prejudice, clearly set the high water mark of the assault waves. It was beaten despite the most outrageous campaign of falsification that our foreign affairs have ever known. How about the responsibility for all this? How about the rights of republi cans all over the country who elected a republican congress to pave the way for the election of a republican pres ident in 1920? Taft, Hughes, Root, the three na tional leaders, have spoken the cause of the republican voters. The little knot of congressionals' have disre garded these pleas. Their own ranks divided, badly led, ineffective, futile, they have blundered on in a course that cool political observers know to be costly beyond words to their par ty's strength. '. The truth is that we have today one more instance of the political in competence of "congressionals." Se- cure In their long tenure office, arro igant in their senatorial dignity, sena tors have ever failed to keep touch with the sentiment of country or par (ty.. No man has ever gone from tne senate to the white house, and no man, we are bold to predict, will make that step in 1920. Jonnson aiej 'with his amendment; Knox stepped off with his plea to the Germans; Folndexter is stillborn with his Lodge platform. In behalf of Republicanism we in dict the Lodge leadership. We indict It for incompetence; we indict It for its disrepard of national honor; wo indict it for its world cowardice; we indict it for its appeals to hyphenism; we indict It for its injury to the re publican party. Japanese Plan Bfl For Drastic Prohibition Topkij (By Mall.) Secretary Tagb of the home office is engaered in draft ing a drastic prohibition bill that will be laid before the forthcoming session of the diet. The bill would prohibit drinking of liquor by men and women . under 25 years of age. ' This Is the first, time the govern ment has looked with favor on a tem perance measure, although similar measures have been introduced from year fo year by-Nemoto, a member of the diet, and an ardent christian. The need of conserving rice has caused the peers to favor limiting th5 drinking of saki. The bill probably wil make an exception in case of the time-honored custom of drinking saki at wedding ceremonies. FOUR HEN OFFER TO SELL YOUTH GLAND San Quentln Prison, Cal., Nov. 28. Declaring they need money more than they do their interstitial glands, four men have written to the prison sur geons here offering to sell their glands to the business manwho recently mado an offer of $10,000. . Two men in Oregon, one in Nevada and one Callfomian have made the offer, said Dr. G. David Kelker today. Dr. L. L. Stanley and Dr. Kelker have replied that they cannot be mediums for Buch exchanges. Dr. Kelker said they both believed a great deal of money could be made by commercializing such operations, but that they feared it would result in loss of professional standing, which, he said, is worth more than money. The men who offered to sell their glands described themselves as young, well nourished and largo of stature. Matthew Thorbourn, one of the most prominent residents of the Tygh Ridge section of Wasco county, was found dead in bed Tuesday morning.

FEW cHSdren find pleasure in the things -tooA vital to their physical comfort and heakh, so it rests with the watchful mother to see that they are done. The child will be grateful in after years. Chief among the functions necessary to the upbuilding of the little body, so that it will not be a dyspeptic, constipated body when it matures, is elimination regularly every morning. If the mother will . be insistent and allow nothing to interfere with it, ft will soon become a habit, a daily routine that will not be forgotten throughout life. -There are times, however,- when aatuie will not operate unaided. Then give Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, which it a combination of simple laxative herbs with pepsin, and the headache?, the biliousness, the torpor will quickly disappear, h acts gentry and without griping, and as it contains no narcotics and is pleasant to the taste, it may be given to infants. Thousands of families have been regulated to healthy maturity with Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. A bottle can be bought at any drug store for 50c and $1. Those who already know its virtues buy the dollar size and consider it economical. In a large family there is always someone who would feel better for a dose of a good medicine like Dr..

America's ex ample is held up by many thinking Germans as one Germany ought to follow with respect to intoxicating li quor. And while Germany so far hasn't any campaign against alcohol such as England is now experiencing, there are distinct signs that the thoughtful men of the nation are beginning to realize that "schnapps" could disap pear from Germany . advantageously from a standpoint of food conserva tion, health and finances. True, this thought is slow in perco lating.. But. it is Significant that re cently a prohibition convention was held here. And Just now In the maga zine. "Die Glocke," a serious paper dealing with social subjects, appears an article strongly urging the" nation to follow America's example. "The procedure of the rich and pow erf ul United States of America In in stituting prohibition," wrote Dr. Ernst Neumann, "which one here now no longer passes over with a Bmlle or a stupid Joke, should give us food for thought" Mn Hopkins Suffers Million Dollar Fire Loss Baltimore, Md., Nov. 28.
