Soldiers returnllng from France
land In the United States without
money, tho many months pay Is due
them. If they are sick, no hospitals
nre ready to receive them, says the
Oregonlan. No provision has been
mndCi for their civil employment, ex
cept that tho government employ
ment olllces nre open to them as to
nay civilian. No allowance has been
made for their maintenance until
they II nd employment, such as the
Allies have made. They are no long
er needed by the government since
tho Marne has been won, the Hlnden
hurg line wiped out, the Argonne for
est cleared of machine guns .and the
lost battalion found; so they are giv
en no more attention by the govern
ment ,und they aro cast aside like an
old, well-worn shoe. - Yes, they are
well-worn In winning the victories for
which President Wilson hns been re
ceiving the laurels.
Care for tho returning soldiers
should have had the attention of con
gress ' last summer, but congress
blandly assumed that the war. would
lust another year at least, and it
whlled away the time in bootless talk,
lluvlng caught congress unprepared
for war, Germany caught it unpre
pared for peace by inconsiderately
making an unexpected surrender. As
Congress had to make an army after
the war began, so It has to make
provisions for the soldiers' home
coming after they are home.
The cause of this callous neglect,
which is a national shame, is not far
to seel:. The President, from the day
of his first Inauguration, has taken
all initiative Into his own hands until
he has finally destroyed all power of
ir.lt iutive in his cabinet and In his
party In congress. The only present
member of the cabinet who has shown
any of this quality Is Secretary Lane.
He Is the only one who has made any
concrete proposal for readjustment
to peace conditions, but his scheme
needs much fixing before It will be
workable. The other cabinet mem
bers are obedient clerks, especially
since Mr. McAdoo stepped out. The
democratic members of congress have
degenerated Into rubber stamps for
the President's decisions, the only
exceptions being those who have
made well-merited criticism of the
administration and have received
condign punishment, nnd those few
who have had hobbies to ride.
When tho present session opened,
the eleventh hour for demobilization
and readjustment legislation had
struck. If the President has called
upon congress to give this work pref
erence over all else, It would doubt
less have got down to business with
nil the speed of which it Is capable.
He said nothing in his address about
care of thesoldlers during demobiliza
tion, loft everything to our "quick
and resourceful" people, simply com
mended the Lane scheme, stated the
railroad problem and gave it up, and
announced that he was goln, gto Eu
rope to settle tho affairs of the world
nnd would run tho United States by
Since his departure the govern
ment has been like a family deserted
by both parents ,or like a tlock of
sheop milling around without u shep
herd. Tho dollar-a-year men who
hud Injected some business energy
and efllclency into tho departments,
have returned to their own uffalrs,
leaving tho small-size chiefs to shift
for themselves. In the absence of the
big chief to tell them what to do, und
of tho business men to show them
how to do It, these tame politicians
nro nt a loss, any initiative or cour
ugo thoy over had having been drilled
out of them. Tho so-called demo
cratic louders lu congress are in as
bud'a predicament. Thoy are not ac
customed to propose anything with
out tho President's O. K. .and they
have been used to carry their trou
bles to him. Thoy can scarcely do
that by wireless. About the only
democrats who originate an Idea are
men llko Senators Chamberlain,
Hitchcock or Meed .and they exposo
the administration's deficiencies more
unsparingly than any republican
Sluce the President himself has re
duced both the heads of departments
and congress to this condition of Im
potence by taking nil Initiative Into
his own hands, his duty Is to come
home and take the lead In urgently
needed legislation, that the soldiers
may bo paid, fed. healed and put to
work ,nnd that Industry may be
speedily readjusted to the new condi
tions which have suddenly arisen.
The teal of the American people for
(the salvation of democracy In Europe
,'iloes not flag, but they do not forget
that the President was elected for the
primary duty of carting for democ
racy In the United States. It It
should not soon receive more atten
tion than It now has. It may get Into
a bad way, anil may even be com
pelled to call upon tho democracy of
Europe for help. Surely tho Presi
dent does not desire such an anti
climax to his efforts to "make tho
world safe for democracy."
The business men of Klamath Falls
are to be congratulated on their atti
tude towards the movement that was
Inaugurated among them for the
cleaning up of the city and the allay
ing of the unnecessary apprehension
over Influenza. The order to close,
clean and fumigate was strictly
obeyed thruout the city, and we have
to hear of a sllngle complaint In
fact, the general attitude was one of
quiet satisfaction over whnt has been
developed. The cool-headed, thought
ful and conservative people felt con
fident that there was no occasion for
the scare ,and they also believed the
quickest way to dispose of It was to
show tho people'-that there was no oc
casion for It. That their line of reas
oning was correct is proven by the
small number of cases that were de
veloped and the quick recession of the
fear that was taking possession of
the people. There will, for n day or
two, be sporadic outbreaks of rumors,
but llnvestllgatlon will prove them to
be baseless, 'as was demonstrated In
a couple of cases yesterday. The ex
act situation will be detailed dally in
The Herald until the health board
concludes there is no further need
for it. In the meantime, follow the
rules of the health board, report any
violations of the quarantine regula
tions, and If you are under quaran

LOISE, Idaho, Jan. IC. On Janu-H.-y
I. 1919, Idaho had b;en bone

hibition law Is one of the most drasti?
In effect anywhere in the west and
makes it a crime to have liquor In i

Special permits are Issued for ship

in the churches, but all other ship

In spite of the vigilance of state
officials a great deal of liquor is!
brought Into the state by bootlegge'rs
and sold at from $6 to $11 a quart.
according to the scarcity of the sup
ply. Since Nevada went dry on De

been mounting rapidly.
Idaho's bone dry law gives sheriffs
and their deputies, as well as city
policemen, power of search and seiz
ure. Any home or business establish
ment may be entered if reasonable
suspicion exists that liquor may be on
the premises and thorough going
search may be made by the officials.

ARCHANGEL, (Via London) Dec."
20. Tales of horrors within the ter-
rltory controlled by the Uolshevlk
government are brought'here almest:
dally by some adventurous Ilusslan,
often a young officer who has made
his way thru the Holshevlk lines.
These stories arc published In the
Archangel newspapers under the
headline, "Tho Russian Nightmare." .
Two of the members of the Ar
changel City Duna who recently re-(
turned from Moscow where they had
been taken under arrest, quoted Nlko
lai Lenine, the Holshevlk premier as
saying: "Our days are numbered. We
know that, but in leaving the power,
we will shut the doors in a way to ,
make Europe shudder."
One of the Archangel papers says r
that the record of the "Central Al-p
Russian Investigation Commission Is
one of tortures and horrors. Arrested ,
people," it adds, "disappear by
groups. Agents of the German gen

Trotsky, formerly foreign minister,
has lost all sympathies among the
working men, but Lenine still has
great success In some places." '
One Dolshevlk member of the Cen. '

quoted as saying in a speech: "If,
