If "our domestic and industrial life is paralyzed," it is be
cause the republican congress refused to enact reconstruction
legislation recommended by a democratic president.
If our "foreign relations have gone mad and Americans are
losing the standing they have been a hundred years fighting for,
it is because the republican majority of the senate has held up the
peace treaty negotiated by a democratic president for more than
eight months refusing to accept any compromise that does not
change the meaning of the covenant and practically nullify the
league of nations, refusing cooperation with the world in main
taining peace, lest it benefit a democrat.
If our "great commercial empire is threatened with creeping
paralysis" it is because congress, both branches of which are con
trolled by republicans, has been in session since May 19, 1919,
and has done nothing to revise taxation or business regulation,!
nothing to curb profiteering or to permit the reorganization of
commerce or creation oi merchant marine.
Mr. White has made the wrong diagnosis. The country
marks time and drifts backward because we have a deadlock
between a republican legislative branch and a democratic admin
istrative branch and there is no cooperation between them, be
cause this is a presidential election- year and the welfare of the
country is side tracked for the welfare of party, and the possible
effect upon the election.
Congress refuses to enact beneficial and needed legislation,
lest the administration receive credit, figuring that the public
will place the blame for inaction upon the administration. It is a
situation that usually exists when one branch of government is
controlled by one party and the other branch by its rival. If there
were a republican president and a democratic congress, we would
have'the same condition it is one of the benefits of partisanship.
It .has resulted in hopeless political confusion that is rapidly
destroying faith in politicians and undermining political parties.
Politics and partisanship are the trouble. The people having
surrendered government to politicians are reaping the reward.
The politicians of one party are as insincere as those of the other,
A change in labels will work no magic transformation. If both
conventions are controlled by politicians, we will continue to
Have similar government under similar conditions in future.
What has a political party become? A neuclus of politicians
after jobs and power of patronage, financed by special interests
seeking privilege, employing organizers to form clubs and rally
the faithful, working press, pulpit and movies with propaganda,
appealing to ignorance, prejudice and passion, exalting the
label as a sacred fetisch, exuding glittering generalities and
spluttering rainbow promises of reform and prosperity, bewilder
ing the people to secure the votes to place the politicians in power.
As Mr. White admits, the main object is to get the offices
the principles can wait. Therefore the appeal to patriotism. It
has worked before. Politicians are politicians, no matter what
their label, and firmly believe that the people like to be humbug
ged and act accordingly. It may work again and it may not. '

BY WALT MARON
It was a bitter winter day when to the grocer's joint I went, to
price the predigested hay, and buy a nutmeg for a cent. "These
berries here." the grocer said, "have just been shipped in by ex
press ; they come from lands where frost is dead from southern
Florida, I guess. A box of these," the grocer cried, "will cost a
dollar and a third; and you may eat and swell with pride, and
folks will say you are a bird," The village baijker ambled in, his
whiskers full of s.now and ice; "Buy berries?" said he, " 'twere a
sin to cough up such a beastly price!" The leading lawyer came
along and gazed upon that pallid fruit, and said His head is
working wrong who for such stuff would give a hoot." A half a
dozen men of wealth passed up the berries thus displayed; they
said 'twould undermine their nealth to pay the price the grocer
madfi. And then the villace tinsmith came, and hnno-Vit n hnv hia

"And I see a spotted person chas

Mr. Fox shuddered.
"Old dog Spot!" he said. "Hurry
and finish! I must be running along".
And he glanced over his shoulder as
if he half expected to see Spot come
bounding towards him.
"You are going on a Journey,"

Mr. Fox thought it was well worth
one cabbage. And he went off won
dering about that surprise.
Jimmy Rabbit told many fortunes
