FACING TWO WAYS.
t Boston has been the scene of rioting and pillaging
by lawless elements as the result of the strike of the police
; force, in an attempt to compel recognition of the newly
organized policemen's union; ,
The police of Boston are under state control because
the politicians of Massachusetts, a Republican state, want
the patronage of Boston, a democratic citya situation
existing in many eastern cities where public service is
prostituted for political spoils.
The, result of this situation is reflected in the dis
patches, which assert that thousands of gamblers, who
have evidently been protected by the police, are conduct
ing their operations on the public commons, and have in
stalled a reign of terror.
The municipal authorities "both of Boston and other
, cities, are right in refusing recognition of police unions,
'. because the first duty of the police is the protection of the
1 public and they cannot serve two masters. They cannot
i be true to their oaths to serve the community and also to
their oaths to serve the union, a faction of the community.
: Public servants, on whom depend the preservation of
law and orders must, not be subject to the whims and
ukases of labor agitators else we will have chads and the
.''scenes now being enacted in Boston, repeated in every
'city following every strike. It is to prevent just such
scenes that we have police.
The Portland Oregohian is having a hard time in
supporting both the League of Nations and the Repub
lican Senate opposing the league. Frequently in the same
issue it scolds the President for not accepting the Senate
amendments and then censors the Senate for not accept
ing the league covenants as drafted. Witness the fol
lowing from two editorials in Thursday's issue:

Such an exhibition of wibble-wobble is pitiable, even
though the public has become reconciled to the senile de

i In the "Sixth German City of the World," the home

tTheir unpatriotic villification of the president was re

elected Mayor Thompson because he insulted the Ameri

out the war. 1
The incident is only a bit of the accumulating evi
dence that all the forces of discontent and sedition, the
allied enemies of democratic government and its free in
stitutions are otmosed to the ratification of the peace
treaty and the League of Nations covenant. They want
the present state of unrest and uncertainty to continue
until they have gathered strength sufficient to overthrow

'" ROCKS AHEAD. -
Hunting A Husband
BY MARY DOUGLAS
The country's going to the deuce, and anarchy is
breaking loose. Whichever way we chance to turn we find
new ills, and threats to burn, and if you throw a brick, by
! heck, you hit a crisis in the neck. We hear such bunk
' and bushels more, each morning in the soft drink store,
where all the graybeards congregate to mourn the sink-
ing chip of state. Cheer up! We heard the same old gag
before this country had a flag; we heard it, or our father
did, ere Bill Tell shot at Gessler's lid. They used to hear,
the same old dope when Caesar was the Romans' hope.
And Noah heard it when he sailed, that time the drouth
predictions failed. "Our garden's going to dogs," cried
Adam, when he chased the hogs, which had destroyed,
with tooth and tush, the rhubarb and the currant bush.
Our distant prehistoric sires, who had no chairs or comfy
. fires, but had to roost around in trees, were guilty of the
same old wheeze. There always will be rocks ahead, and
- goblins dire and bogies dread, but our old ship of state
- will glide to safety on the further side.? So let's forget
. our doubts and fears, and order four denatured beers.

The packing industry is intricate, com
