In the midst of war the present sen senatorial

Penrose and Smoot, was formed.

but the method has. At the outset

and announced definitely the policy

The republican candidate has spok spoken

Johnson:

took his stand upon the paramount

Senator Hardingas the candidate
of the party, and Senator Johnson are
as one on this question and, as the
latter expresses it the republican
party is committed both by platform
in the abstract and by its candidate
in specification. The threatened re revolt
volt revolt among leaders of the party is
averted, but the minority position as
expressed in the Senate prevails as

that of the party. In short, principle,

as avowed in support of the Lodge

reservations, has been surrendered to
expediency.
Senator Harding makes this new
pledge of policy in behalf of his
party:
"I promise you formal and effective

This means but one thing a sep separate

this be withdrawn. Suppose Ger Germany,

the Allies, proposes something we
cannot accept. Does Senator Hard

the allied army could not be expected
to render aid. If, on the other hand,
Germany should accept the chance
we offered of breaking the bond it
would be for the express purpose' of
insuring a German-American alliance,
recognizing that the Allies in fact,
no nation in good standing would
have anything to do with either of us.
This plan would not only be a
piece of bungling diplomacy, but
plain, unadulterated dishonesty, as
well.
No less an authority than Senator
Lodge said, before the heat of recent
controversy, that to make peace ex except

GREEN APPOINTED
MONTGOMERY'S GUARDIAN

Ocala authorities. Dr. Montgomery
left yesterday for his home in Mica Mica-nopy,

says he will soon go to Atlanta for
treatment.
Doc's had a rough time with Ocala
this trip. First he fell afoul of Mar Marshal
shal Marshal Thomas, who escorted him to the
bastile for making of himself the
carriage of a quick-shooting, self-
s cocking cannon. He paid the city for
this the sum of $25; and immediately
after was gathered in by the sheriff,
who haled him before Judge Smith.
He had a trial on this, which resulted
in. his contributing $150 to the county
fine and forfeiture fund. Pretty soon,
he was found with moonshine in his
possession, in consequence of which
he had to spend about twenty-fcur
hours in the city jail. He was there
during the big storm Thursday, and
declared he never wanted a boat so
badly before. He pled guilty to pos possessing

ed turned over to the guardianship of County
Attorney Lou Green. Lou specifies
that Doc is not to come to Ocala
without his consent, and to behave
himself while here, or up he goes,

(We'd surely hate to have Lou
Green for a guardian he'd make us
get up at 7 o'clock Sunday morning
and go to church, Sunday school and
prayer-meeting, and sound taps on us
at 10 o'clock every night).'
Dr. Montgomery is a problem to hs
family and his friends. He seems
to be a mixture of good and bad (like
all the rest of us), but the average
man has his goodness and badness
ground up so fine and mixed so well
that it seldom causes comment. Doc's
badness generally comes in lumps.
Most of the time he is as clever and
friendly as any man can be. He is a
splendid physician and has often been
known to give the most devoted and
skillful service. He is kind of heart

One of his failings is vheri he comes

And as a general thing we don't be believe

is no secret that our chemists had

It is planned now to make this im-

agreed upon. The league of nations
is in operation. A very important
work, under its control, just complet completed,

Eiibu Root, secretary of state under
the Roosevelt administration. At a
meeting of the council of the league
of nations, Feb. 11, an organizing
committee of twelve of the most
eminent jurists in the world was se-
lected. The duty of this group was
to devise a plan for the establish establishment

league. This assignment has been
concluded by unanimous action. This
augurs well for world progress. The 1
question is whether we shall or shall
not join in this practical and humane
movement. President Wilson, as our'
representative at tjie peace table, en-I
tered the league in our name, in so
;far as the executive authority per- j

; "We advocate immediate ratifica ratification

The first duty of the new adminis administration
tration administration clearly will be the ratification
of the treaty. The matter should be
approached without thought of the
bitterness of the past. The public
verdict will have been rendered, and
I am confident that the friends of
world peace as it will be promoted by
the league, will have in numbers the
constitutional requisite to favorable
senatorial action. The captious may
say that our platform reference to
reservations is vague and indefinite.
Its meaning, in brief, is that we shall
state our interpretation of the cove covenant
nant covenant as a matter of good faith to our
associates and as a precaution
against any misunderstanding in the
future. The pointy is, that after the
people have spoken, the league will be

will do is supplied by what reserva reservations

Some months ago, in a contributed
article to the New York Times, I ex expressed

here:

provisions of the treaty. Two things

First, they wanted to make sure that
the league was not to be an alliance,

wanted the other powers signing the
instrument to understand our consti constitutional

treaty-making power cannot go. Deal Dealing

the interpretation of the function of j
the league might have been stated in

these words:
" 'la giving its assent? to this
treaty, the Senate has in mind the
fact that the leaus of nations which

purpose of maintaining peace and

rights, by making a senatorial rights,
by making a senatorial addition in
words something like these:

Unquestioned friends of the league
have made other proposals. Our plat platform

additions that will be helpful, but it
speaks in a firm resolution to stand
against anything that disturbs the
vital principle. We hear it said that
interpretations are unnecessary. That
may be true, but they will at least be
reassuring to many of our citizens,

In the analysis of government, as

has developed new problems. Civili Civilization

growth goes on under the protection

government. The least therefore,
that might be rendered unto govern government

policy of fair-dealing. Too often the
genius of man prompts him to play

success which has been achieved in
this particular, has led to the forma formation

advantage. We are a busy people,
preoccupied in too large degree with

and we have not recognized as we

it possible for mischievious spirits to
develop prejudice against the insti institutions

against administrative policy. There
is a very important difference here.
This difference bears directly on pro profiteering,
fiteering, profiteering, which is today the most sin sinister
ister sinister influence in American life. It is
not a new thing in America. The tribe
of profiteers has simply multiplied
under the favoring circumstances of
war. For years, large contributions
have beeri made to the republican
campaign fund for no purpose except
to buy a governmental underhold,
and to make illegal profits as the re result
sult result of preference. Such largesses
are today a greater menace to our
contentment and our institutions than
the countless temporary profiteers
who are making a mockery of honest
business, but who can live and fatten
only in- time of disturbed prices. If
I am called to service as president
mean will be found, if they do not
already exist, for compelling these

square dealing American business
men, to use the same yardstick of
honesty that governs most of us in
our dealings with-; our f ellowmen, or
in language that hey may understand,
to suffer the penalty ;of criminal law.
There is another reason for .the
fabulous contributions to the present
republican campaign fund. Much
money, of course, has been subscrib subscribed

great bulk of it has been given with
the definite idea of gaining service

out of these affairs untarnished by
distrust. It is the mere recital of "ex "experience.

in no small degree by the great mass

our states would be supplied with an

solution would be simplified by
utilizing the waterways. Aside from
this, the accruing gain from every
crop would be a consideration for the
reason that the price of grain in this
country is made by the Chicago mar market

originated, advocated and made a law
by a democratic president and Con Congress,

the republican stand-patters, who al almost
most almost without exception voted against
it. Among these men are the familiar
names of Senators Lodge, Penrose
ar.d Smoot, the inside Senate cabal
responsible for the existing status in
the leadership of their party. The
federal reserve act is admitted to be
the most constructive monetary legis legislation

transferred the power over money
and credit and all they represent,
from one financial district out into
the keeping of the people themselves
and instead of one center to which all
paid tribute, there are 12 citadels of
financial freedom where every citizen
has an equal right and where the
principle that the credit of American
business shall be free is the basis of
administration. Every citizen should
be alert to guard this great institu institution

independence. It should be kept from
the hands of those who have never
been its friends, and my by changes
in a few obscure phrases could trans translate

than it ever has been for good. It is
almost unnecessary to speak of the
federal reserve system in connection
with the winning of the war, as, next
to the consecration of our manhood
and womanhood itself, the greatest
factor was the marshalling into one
unit through the federal reserve
banks of the stupendous wealth of
America. To those of vision who look
out beyond our shores into that com commercial

in every quarter of the globe an ever ever-widening

generally.
Government bureaus during the
war had close contact with the busi business

That experience revealed the modern
need of reorganization along purely
business lines. The advantage of a

the federal unit, and the states as
well, made appropriations without
determining the difference between
department need and caprice, at the

the relation as between income and
expense. Many of the states have
adopted a budget system, and with a
success that carries no exception.
Efficiency has been improved de departmental

the federal government. The system

Since the last national convention
of the two great parties, a world

civilization hung in the balance. In

as though a world dictator was inev inevitable,

fear that our liberties were to be
taken away. WTiat America did
needs no reiteration here. It is known
of all men. History will acclaim it
poets will find it an inspiration thru thru-out
out thru-out the ages. And yet there is not a
line in the republican platform that
breathes an emotion of pride, or re recites

fact, if a man from Mars were to de depend

its spoken interpretation, by the can candidate

means of information, he would not
find a syllable telling him that the

how unfair that a mere group of
leaders should so demean themselves
in the name of the party of Lincoln
and McKinley and Roosevelt..
The discourtesy to the president is
an affair of political introgue. His History
tory History will make it odious. As well
might it be directed at a wounded
soldier of the t war. One fell in the
trench; the strength of the other was
broken in the7 enormous labors of his
office. But others were ignored the
men and women who labored at home
with an industry and a skill that
words cannot recount! What of the
hands that moved the lathe by day
and the needle by night? What of the ;
organizations, superbly effective, that
conserved food and fed the world
that carried nourishment to the very
front trench in the face of hell's
furies that nursed the wounded back
to life that buried the dead in the
dark shelter of the night that in inspired

all parties to work in harmony? What

otherwise, who stood in the ranks as
firm as soldiers overseas, undivided
by things they once quarreled about ? i
What of the government itself con confirming

sufficient to meet the storms of time?
Why the sneer at labor with the veil veiled

The spectacle is enough to convince
any unprejudiced man that the repub republican

We find the following rather sar sarcastic
castic sarcastic remarks in the New York
Times:
Every four years enthusiasts, not,

perhaps, without a discreet wink of )

the eye toward the campaign chest,
are surer than certainty that the re republicans
publicans republicans are going to break the solid
South. This and that state can be
"carried" easily with proper effort
and free distribution of funds. Mr.
George W. Bean, republican national
committeeman for Florida, has evi evidently
dently evidently been dipped in that fountain of
ycuth which Ponce de Leon sought.
He has, or seems to have, the im immortal
mortal immortal and ever-young dream of "car "carrying"
rying" "carrying" Florida. There are only three
republican factions in the commod commodious
ious commodious little republican party of the
state. In 1916 Mr. Wilson had 65,984
votes and Mr. Hughes 14,611. One
Florida representative in Congress
was elected without opposition. In
contested districts the democratic
vote is usually from three to seven
times that of teh republican.
This year the republicans are going
to conduct an "intensive campaign,'1
Mr. Bean says hopefully, and "make
the republican candidates get three
times as many votes as they ever
did before." Evidently it is a simple
process. Mr. Bean ought to whisper
his secret to the democrats of Vermont.

PEOPLE OF OUR TOWN

One editor who attended the state
constitutional amendment convention
here last week went home and wrote
an editorial to the effect that he at attended
tended attended with an open mind, but argu arguments
ments arguments advanced were not sufficient to

convert him. We happen to know of

our own knowledge he didn't attend

any of the business sessions, taking
advantage of only the dinner and the
smoker which followed, during which

a few after-supper bulls were slung,

Converted? We should say not. Open
mind? Maybe so. We can't say as to

j that, ybut we dq know his mouth was

open when time came to tie the feed
bag on. And if he sasses back at us,
we'll tell where he lives, print his
name, expose where he came from

and state why he left. Herb Felkcl

in St. Augustine Record.

Dear Bromides: Some weeks ago

we received a letter from your fair

city, inviting us to the state coristi

tutional 'amendment convention, and
when we somewhat rudely declined,
saying the occasion would be a
Belshazzar's feast, you so courteously
replied that all coming would only
be "guests" that we almost felt
ashamed of ourself and wrote a half halfway
way halfway apology. But now this poor edi editor
tor editor you allude to goes to your town,
considers he is a guest, acts to suit
himself and went home and wr jte
what' he thought. All of which you
said he would be entitled to do. Now
if we had been that editor, Herb, we
might have done pretty much like he
didwe would have attended the ban banquet
quet banquet out of courtesy, (we get enough
to eat in little old Ocala, thank God),
and then we would have poked around
and talked to this man and that man
about the matter, as the editor you
refer to may have done, for we found
out long ago that we can obtain more
solid information from a few well in informed
formed informed people than from a crowd.
And then we would have come home
and-written as we darn please. And
you would have denounced us and told
where we came from, which would
have been an undeserved assault on
the people who live there, and who
have had trouble enough since their
grandfathers chased us out. We are
right glad we didn't-go to your ban'r ban'r-wet,

PLAYED FEW "SAFETY SHOTS
Men Who Have Won Success in Life's
Game Satisfied With Noth Nothing
ing Nothing but Victory.
Walter Hagen, the golfer, says:
"Never play for a safety, but always
try for the cup."
Kings in other trades as well as in
golf have found that it pays to "try
for the cup," remarks "Girard" In the
Philadelphia Press.
Safety shots are often careless shots
in business as in play.
Rockefeller played six hole out in
the oil world and he made a par and
then some.
Morgan hammered the ball straight
for the flag and it flew above every
bunker and sand pit in the financial
world.
Col. "Tom" Scott had no safety
shots In his bag when dreaming out
the Pennsylvania road system, nor did
Franklin B. Gowen when he made his
master stroke in buying the Reading's
coal lands.
Theodore N. Vail, the telephone
giant, never minced his game nor re resorted
sorted resorted to a half shot tosave his face.
He went out with the long stroke and
came home to the final shot with a
record card to his credit
The big-league teams play to win
the game, not to win a compromise or
tie the other team.
The great merchant nails his flag to
the mast, says "damn the torpedoes,"
and shoots straight at his target.
So in business as on the links the
adage should be: "Hold your head
still and play for the cup."
PICK EMPLOYEES WITH CARE
Modern Business Men No Longer Rely
on the "Hit-or-Miss" Method of
-''-, Selection.
There was a time when picking em employees
ployees employees was a hit-and-miss job, a trial-and-error
matter which few employers
believed could be corrected. This Is
tne day of doing things right and the
modern employer is now selecting his
associates, from the office boy to the
man highest up, with as much care as
he would launch on an entirely new
business venture. William Marvin
Jackson, director of the Personnel De Development
velopment Development service, writes:
"If employees are carefully selected,
with an eve to their real adaptability
; and fitness for the work to be done, it
goes without question that they are
much more likely to take an interest
in their work, and hence, the business
Itself. If they are interested, they will
get along well with their fellows and
co-operate with their superiors. All of
which means that they will grow, and
there Is no satisfaction for the em employee

No Doubt Who Was Boss.
Sometimes It Is easy to see, even
before a couple Is married, just which
one Is going to be the boss of the
household. Recently a big, robust

this where I get a license?" she asked.
"What kind of a license?" asked
Adler.

Adler. "Go to the first door down the
hall on your right."
"I knew at first that this wasn't
the place," said the big woman, with
an air of disgust ; "that's what I told
him." Thereupon she stepped into
the hall, and when the door opened
Adler could see a little man waiting
outside.
It was evident that the woman had
usurped command and was going to
take charge of the marriage license
business, not to mention, of course,
the honeymoon and all the rest of

INDIAN IDEA OF RECKONING
Time Designated in Simple Fashion Fashion-Journeys
Journeys Fashion-Journeys and Distances Told Off
by "Sleeps."
The American Indians of early days
reckoned time by what they called
"sleeps" and "moons." The Indian's
"sleep" referred to a sun-to-sun day
of 24 hours and his "moon" to what
the white man roughly and improperly
calls a month.-The Indians Indicated
the noon hour by pointing vertically
upward. To Indicate the middle of the
first half fof the daylight period 9
o'clock he pointed upward midway
between the horizon and the zenith
and to Indicate mid-afternoon 3
o'clock he pointed toward the oppo-
! site quarter. He spoke of the eastern
horizon as '.'sunrise" and of the west western
ern western horizon as "sunset."
Journeys and distances between dif different
ferent different points were measured in
"sleeps." Thus, when he undertook
to tell how far he had traveled or to
tell how far one point was from an another,
other, another, the old-time Indian would say
a certain number of "sleeps." Ordina Ordinarily,

shipping arms to the Latin-American
countries, concocted many of his fili filibustering
