LABOR'S STRANGE ACTION
One of the anomolies of the season is the passing of a
resolution by the Federation of Labor yesterday indors
ing the placing of an embargo on all foodstulfs until
prices become normal. It is a strange move because it is

for the purpose, among other things, of maintaining a
high wage, it strikes at the largest body of workers in the
country and endeavors to reduce their income. It is
seldom the farmer gets any. too much for his produce, and
it looks as though he should have his innings occasional
ly. It is not the first mistake Labor has made but it is
one of its worst ones. "When the farmers are not prosper
ous labor has a hard time of it, and the reverse of that
statement is true. Besides as was stated in these columns
a few days ago; if fanners prices are to be limited as to
heighth they must in all fairness be also protected against
becoming too low. In other words: If prices are to be
held down to normal, they must also be held up to
normal. To use an old adage "what is sauce for the
gander is sauce for the goose." In the case of high prices
the consumer is the gander, and when prices are low the
farmer is the goose. It is not likely the embargo will
materialize, for it is not the scarcity of foodstuffs but the
manipulation by jobbers and combines that-forces prices
up. It is probable there will be a material drop in many
food products in the near future simply because the
federal grand juries are taking a hand and the district
attorneys are getting busy.
FRUGAL IN USE OF TRUTH
A dispatch from Chihuahua, Mexico, yesterday an
nounced a great victory for the Carranza forces in the
battle with Villa. This dispatch came from the Carranza
commander and like most things that come from the
Mexican side of the border, needs considerable salt on it
to keep it from spoiling. We do not recall a case wherein
the de facto troops have bested the bandits since Villa
legan banditing. In most cases Carranza's troops have
fled incontinently before the fight was well started, and
generally they fled before Villa got within miles of them.
The reliability of Mexican reports is shown in a dispatch
from Mexico City yesterday, stating that Roosevelt had
started a revolution in several of the states for the pur
pose of overthrowing Wilson who had been guilty of elec
tion frauds. The Mexican paper publishing this story
naively added: "The American ambassador has tele
graphed to Washington to inform himself as to the truth
of the report." It would not be at all surprising if re
ports today show Villa is in possession of the city.
General Trevino, commanding the garrison at Chihuahua
was reported yesterday to be short of ammunition, and
that looks as though an excuse for getting whipped was
being framed up. It would be real interesting to have
it demonstrated that a Mexican could really tell the truth.
old law passed as it became understood, and everything
had settled down on that score until the law was seldom
mentioned. It may be the same with the present amend
ment. Anyway it is the law, and if it should prove a dis
appointment as many predict, the best way to deal with
it is to give it a fair, square trial, enforce it strictlv. and
either keep it on the books as a good law or repeal it if it
should prove a bad one. It should not be condemned

much criticism of it.. This is natural for the voters of the
state were pretty equally divided as to the law. There is
a large number, who while at first opposed to the old
"two quarts or Zi" hnally alter It had been given a fair
trial became supporters of it. They realized ' that the
doing away with the saloon was of great benefit, while it
was still possible without much trouble to procure liquors
in limited quantities.
Most of this class are strongly opposed to the bone
dry law, and forsee much trouble over it. They take the
ground that the use of liquors is not especially an evil,
but that the abuse of them is. For this reason they object
to the sumptuary features of the new law which they
claim is drastic and unjust.
Discussion of the matter is not worth while, since it
is the law. and the proper thing to do is to give it a fair
trial, before either praising or condemning it. So far as
the state is concerned it is an experiment, and as such.

other counties since prohibition went into effect. But
there seems to be as many men employed in the sheriff's
offices and on the police forces of the cities as ever.

Secretary Lansing says there will be no more notes
written over the submarine situation. He asserts that
Germany thoroughly understands America's position and
that there is nothing more to say. Germany has been
told what it may expect if the submarine war is renewed,
and nothing can or will be done until it appears that
Germany has violated her pledges. To date she has, so
far as the public knows at leasts kept her promise to this
country. There have been innumerable complaints, most
ly coming from England, of "German f rightfulness," but
these proved, to be practically without foundation, in fact
when traced down and the truth was learned. The tor
pedoing of a hospital ship in the Agean sea a few days ago
is a case in point. England promptly reported it. to
America with a good many trimmings which later proved
untrue. It s now admtted the ship struck a mine and it is
not at all certain that the Germans were responsible for
the mine being where it was. Most of the crises that bob
up every few weeks are manufactured in Wall street for
the purpose of swinging the market a few points until
some gang can clean up the suckers.
