A somewhat different aspect, however, is given to
the situation by comments from California newspapers
that are known to be calm and conservative. The editor
of the Woodland Mail, in a characteristic statement, rec
ognized that Senator Phrelan's presentation may have

"Those of us on the ground," says the editor, "are
convinced that the 'gentlemen's agreement' by which Jap
anese laborers are supposed to be kept out is worth lit
tle. It is conceded that hosts of the little brown men are
cmonig to the state across the Mexican border. And
'contract wives' are coming in by hundreds, ap arently
for no other reason than to become bearers of chi dren.
"Japanese laborers are creating disaster for the white
race in scores of districts, their mode of life making it Im
possible for white men and women to tolerate them. They
have gradually possessed themselves of whole sections in
both city and country, and where they locate the value of
proprty immediately depreciates. Possessing themselves

Just now our irovernineiit is niakinir
By Walt Mason
The day is hot as melted lead; I place some ice upon
my head, and seek the shade outdoors; and there I read
some cooling book the voyages of Dr. Cook along the arc
tic shores. The doc is held to be a fake, but in his writings
he can make a man forget the heat; with him I walk where
blizzards roll, discovering a pipe dream pole among the
framed up sleet. My reading takes me further back; I
follow Sir John Franklin's track, to where it has an end;
lie vanished in the storm and rack, and never sent a mes
sage back to any mortal friend. Somewhere the polar
night wind moans above Sir John's here ic bones, all buried
deep in snow, the bones of others by their side, but how
t he heroes wrought and died we nevermore shall know. I
read of Greeley's hunger camp, and feel a tear in either
lamp, for that's a frightful tale; and as I read I seem to
hear the ice floes crashing far and near, and feel the bit
ter gle. A neighbor comes along and cries, "Gee whiz!
Our Augusts and Julys are getting worse and worse; this
heat, if longer it persist, will get my goat, I wot and wist,
and put me in a hearse." I hear his words in mild sur
prise; I've been abroad 'neath arctic skies, among the end
less snows; and I am feeling just as if my ears and nose
were frozen stiff, and I had chilblained toes.

Already the hum of the air-postman is a familiar
sound in dozens of American communities. - It is becom
ing so regular that many people set their clocks by it.
There is no more excitement when it passesonly the
same interest that a small town takes in an express train.
Before many years, it will probably attract jio more than
passing notice in any American community. Thus mir
acles grow commonplace.
The air service at Washington has decided to use the
word "airship" to designate only dirigibles and lighter-than-air
craft. All heavier-than-air machines are "air
planes." It is a weighty matter, to be, sure, but anyone
who has mastered the difference between a fish fork and
a salad fork ought to be able to tell at a glance whether
it is an airship or an airplane. ' '

The speed cop oh the roads in this district is probably
there to see that motorists do not go slower than the law
allows it would be impossible in the present condition of
the roads to exceed the legal speed limit. But the road hog
with the spot-light is allowed to endanger life on all the
roads at night without let or hindrance.
Rumania has a practical way of settling the bolshevik
question. She told the- pin-headed leaders of the move
ment in Budapest to get out-and they made their exit
in record time in order not to get in the "way of advanc
ing Rumanian troops.
Italy wants American coal and American shoes.
There is an old proverb' which says "the worth of a thing
is learned by the want of it." Hut will Italy want these
things when she finds out how much they cost?
Deportation and execution have reduced the podu-
! ation of Petrograd from 2,000,000 to 800,000. Apparent

. "Now that we are getting ice and potatoes by weight,
why not eggs?" asks a correspondent. How has he been
getting ice in the past by the dozen?
The rosy, round tomatoes,
Tho eabbngo and the beans,
The good Irish potatoes,
And spinach, too, for greens.
The earth is the kind of mother
Who nurses baby seeds;
She gives us munv blessini,
And all the world she fee-Is.
She makes the grns and clover
i'or all the rows to eat.
And then tliey give u butter,
And milk, so ri-h and sweet.
