WHY A NEW POLITICAL PARTY?
Dispatches from Texas tell of a conference of demo
crats there who are seeking to "reform" their party, or,
in event of failure, form a new organization. They are
apposed to prohibition, which over-rides the old-time
democratic opposition to all sumptuary legislation af
fecting personal and religious liberty and to socialis
tic tendencies which are now rampant. Since Texas is al
most solidly democratic the movement naturally starts
among the democrats there, but there is no use
overlooking the fact that many voters both parties
'are wondering if new and vital issues will not produce a
r.ew political party in this country which will better serve
"the interests of the nation than the present organizations,
now controlled by two contending sets of office-seekers,
the only real difference between the. democratic and re
publican parties being that one is in and the other out of
the political jobs. The democratic leaders have forgotten
Thomas Jefferson's injunctions except for platform use
and the republicans use Abraham Lincoln's precepts
mainly for camouflaging the voters on election day. f
The gravest danger to the existence of a democratic
form of government is no doubt radicalism, which fur
nishes the unscrupulous and ambitious politician with the
appeal to passion, prejudice and class hatred that is nec
essary to assure his advancement in his struggle for pow
er and nelf. Today many senators, congressmen, govern
ors and even judges listen to the clamor of the mob of
alien bolshevists while the rights and interests of the more
substantial citizenship of the country are disregarded.
The professional politicians, who are of course the office
holders and therefore the actual government of the nation,
are driving the United States toward radical socialism,
if not anarchy, at a headlong pace because they lack the
l.onest convictions that should be possessed by every citi
zen of a real democratic government like ours. The coln
paratively few of the people who want to substitute bol-i-hevism
for cur democratic government 'and its institu
tions are noisy and aggressive and the politician natur
ally overestimates their strength and proceeds to line up
with them and actually takes leadership of the radicals.
There is no doubt "a meat deal of unrest in both of the

that divided the parties are dead, buried and all but for

The verdict for damages of six cents in favor, of
Henry Ford and against the Chicago Tribune is signifi
cant from at least'two different angles. It may mean that
the jurymen thought Henry's character not very valuable
at best, or that the Chicago Tribune's reputation was
such that its attacks were not necessarily of a damaging
nature. But the Tribune will have a fr'g bill for costs to

Of course 200,000,000 pounds of army food will not

up very straight. Sometimes she waved

Maria seemed very much excited
about Something. She made funny litMe
