Thursday, .iaxcarv in. ttu OXK-MAX GOVKUNMKXT 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 wireless. 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 could. 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 tine, obey the instructions given you by your physician and the quarantine officers. IDAHO PROHIBITION LAWS VERT DRASTIC LOISE, Idaho, Jan. IC. On Janu-H.-y I. 1919, Idaho had b;en bone dry for three years. Tin Idaho Pro hibition law Is one of the most drasti? In effect anywhere in the west and makes it a crime to have liquor In i possession even for medicinal use. Special permits are Issued for ship ments of wine for sacramental use in the churches, but all other ship ments are strictly barred. 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 cember 1C bootlegging prices have 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. BRITISH PAYING FOK KKPATIUATING IIELGIl'M LONDON, Jan. 16. From South ampton nnd from Grimsby, Scotland, ships are taking back to Belgium the first consignment of the thousands of Belgian refugees who sought shelter In this country at the beginning of the war. Present arrangements for the repatriation of the exiles contem plate the return only of those belong- Ing to Antwerp and vicinity, Luter those whose homes are tn other parts of Belgium will be tuken care of. Speed with which general repatri ation of the Belgians will be carried out depends upon the internal condi tions of Belgium nnd Improvement of road and rail transport. Tho repatri ation will he at the expense of the British government.

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.

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.
