The war rates on first-class mail matter have now
been lowered, and letters may be mailed for two cents an
ounce as formerly. Post cards are likewise reduced from
two cents to the old one-cent rate.
It may seem a trivial thing. Many people say they
tare little what the letter rate is thev spend so small a
45e'part of their income on postage. But it is no trifle to
.as. the government. That extra cent on letters and post
cards increased the postoffice revenues $120,000,000 in
less than two years. -
You paid it. Everybody paid it, though some natur
ally paid more than others. It bore with special weight

If stumping tours arc resorted to in the case of the
peace treaty, it will be the first time in the history of this
country that such a thing has been done. In all previous

The government still needs money, but it can raise it
better in some other way for example, in the form of
taxes accruing from the profits on increased business due
to lower postage.

There is-one great danger however, in this public ap
peal, and that is that crafty political purposes may be
hidden under the eloquent and stirring language, and
people may be led by fiery and catching speeches to make
false deductions. This ha3 been done in many a cam
paign on less important issues.

against specious, misleading oratory. The man who
cannot back his statements with clear, concise reasons
understandable to the plain people should be driven from
the platform by popular disapproval.
Great issues are at sta"ke, and it is a pity th;it party
politics can enter. But if every voter will make an earnest
effort to inform himself on the League of Nations, which
is of course the stumbling point, and will subscribe to no;
argument wnicn is not maniiesuy iree irum puny ur yt-i-sonal

The nation can get out of the League of Nations in
two years if it disapproves of the League. The nation
can get one-third of the United States senators out cf their
jobs in less than two years if it disapproves of them.
