Russia is adopting the monetary

Secretary of the Treasury Mellon
says that mor^ than $20,000,000 of

Mrs. lien Hooper, of Oskoshm, can-
didate for the Democratic nomination
for Senator from Wisconsin, remarks
that she is in the race in order to pro-
mote world peace. Cheerful news for
husbands in all lands. The women
are in favor of peace.
American railroads have purchased
about 80,000 new freight cars in the
first five months of this year, which-
is about three times the number
bought during the whole of 1921. Uut
they will serve little purpose if
strikes continue to multiply and stop
the wheels of commerce.
The capture and holding for ransom
of Bielaski, an American citizeh band-
' Xits within 60 miles of the Mexican cap-
ital is indicative of the impotence of
the Obrenon government. And unless
the president of that -republic can en-
force the laws and give reasonable
guarantees for the safety of American
citizens sojourning in that country, the
United States will hesitate about ex-
tending' the much coveted recognition
Obregon is seeking-
Congressman Ivlanuel Herrick of
the Eighth Oklahoma district, who
hopped off in his airplane from Mem-
phis, Tenn., Tuesday morning for
Perry, to begin his campaign for re-
election, met with an accident at
Wynne, Ark., when his plane crashed
into a tree. Manuel sustainedd severe
bruises, but none were serious. Since
his plane was wrecked, the doughty
congressman will doubtless make a
less spectacular campaign than he
Representative Manuel Herrick, the
accident from the Eighth congression-
al district, doubtless expects to show
his constituents that he is a high
flier. He has purchased a govern-
ment airplane and expects to make a
few tail spins and loop-the-loops in
the northern part of the state during
the sweltering month of July. But
the hero of a beauty contest is riding
for a fall, and on the night of August
1 will doubtless realize that lie has
taken to the air in vain.
The conferences at the Hague ap-
pear to have been wrecked oven be-
fore they ere fairly under way. The
Russians insist that the question of
credits for Russia be first -discused,
after which they are willing to talk
about debts and the lights of private
property. That practically means
that Russia demands a substantial
loan, and after it is granted she will
consider the matter of security. Of
course such a sequence of subjects is
impossible, and The Hague meeting
is doomed to follow the Genoa parley
to disaster unless wiser counsels pre-
When a cabinet member makes
anti-prohibition nt r«'i«ce
commencements as Secretary ot' \Y..'
Weeks has been doing, he is only
making it harder for enforcement of-
ficers to do the work assigned them,
and at the same time strikes a blow
at the law itself. He says if he were
congress the people could have "light
wine and beer. Well, he is neither
congress nor the people. The people
have spoken and prohibition is the
law of the land, Weeks or no Weeks,
and it comes with poor grace for
a cabinet officer to give voice to such
SHOPMEN'S STRIKE A MISTAKE
The railroad shopmen cannot ex-
pect any sympathy from the public
by repudiating the rulings and ignor-
ing the requests of the Railroad Wage
Board. They are defeating their own
How shall wage and working differ-
ences be settled ? How can they be set-
tled? Tlw last resort when two par-
ties at interest cannot agree is by ar-1
bitration. The Railroad Wage Board
is a quasijudical body, a Federal body,
fully competent to decide wage and
labor disputes with justice.
Is not the p'^Mic warranted in say-
ing that the leaders of certain labor
groups are opposing the common in-
terest, defying the government, and
resisting fair and reasonable measures
for adjustment of wage and work
matters? By ordering their men to
strike, and taking an arbitrary stand,
the leaders are setting a precedent for
drastic action, and especially for un-
friendly, drastic public opinion.
The shopmen's strike is a grave
mistake. Ft will unpopularize the
strikers and their leaders.
