The "tciO tinde in tlii- country has
been healing that Geminii sUcl

To make 1000 tons of steel lails in
this country requires the labor of
6000 men for one day.
If Stlnnss in stead of an Ameri-
can steel mill gets the order for
15000 tons of rails it will mean that
6000 American steel workmen will be
idle for 15 days.
On a larger or smaller scale that
is the effect when any of us buys
abroad at a cheaper price something
that could be made in America.
Charles M. Schwab chairman of

aays an ounce of gold today buys the
labor of an American workman for
The same ounce of gold buys 50
hours of labor in England 96 hours
in Japan 117 hours in France and
S02 hours in Germany.
The labor cost in manufacturing is
according to these figures 12 times
aa high in America as in Germany
This is largely exchange based on
the gold standard of money.
Last year to protect American
workmen against a flood of millions
of low-waged foreigners pouring in-
to our country and demoralizing
wages congress passed a bill re
The foreign workmen barred from
America have stayed at home. They
work there their products flowing
into our markets. Automatically this
throws Americans out of jobs just as
thoroughly as if the labor competi-
tion were allowed to enter.
Just how much that competition
amounts to cannot be estimated ex-
actly. But it is large. And it is bound
to increase as European countries
get their machinery of production
back to normal.
"Why should not a drunken man
driving an automobile who kills some
one in consequence of his irrespon-
sible or drunken condition be tried for
murder the same as if ho had killed
his victim with a gun?" nsks an ex-
change nothing that the Maryland
legislature is considering a bill which
would make killing by a drunken
man in nn automobile inditable ns
first degree murder.
It i- piolnble that all states will be
driven to some enactment of this I
kind m piotcclion of the public be-
fore the menme of the diunken driver
Such a statute would only empha-
size the pnnciplc of law that no mat-
ter how mentally iiiesponslblc a ninn j
may be fiom dunking he is neverthe-
less fully i ('sponsible for what he
does in violation of the laws.

either cpiesed or implied. While
the diunken diiver may not have'

This is a piinciplc of common law

i- RAILROAD RATES
In the legulntion of interstate com-'
mirce. the power and right of con-
gress to control interstate railroad
rates is mote clearly discernable that
the fedeial supiemacy in some other
fields. Units this right exists the
states might and doubtlcs would
unduly and unjustly discriminate
against interstate commerce.
And s0 the United States supreme
couit holds that "commerce is a
unit with no state lines."
The states may bewail the disap-
pearance of another portion of their
sovereignty but in no other way is
it practicable to secure uniformity
of rates for carrier in interstate '

Not only tradition but some recent
statistics discount any glowing pro-
