TRIBUTE TO MAN AT HEAD OF GOVERNMENT
PRESIDENT HAS NICHED HIMSKLF INERADICABLY IN PUBLIC
CONFIDENCE HAS THE VISION TO SEE BENEATH THE SI AG
NANCIES OF MATERIALISM.
(Choree Creel in the Century.)
America is a nation of incurable
dreamers. The heart of the people is
not found in edeers, their aspiration,
are not expressed in profits, and never
at any time have schemes of purely
material advancement possessed the
This is the explanation of Woodrow
Wilson. . To attempt an interpretation
of his hold upon the popular iminagm
tion in terms of strict mentality is to
commit one's self to the patent an
surdity that he is the first President
with brains. Utners nave matcneu
him in intellectual grasp, and what
sets him apart, even as it set Lincoln
apart, is nothing else tnan an exa..
comprehension of passionate idealism
as the animating impulse of America.
Vision, spirit, ideals, without the
edu afforded by these dream words
Woodrow Wilson is a blank, the
United States stammering and untn
tellible. Democracy never has been,
and never can be other than a theory
of spiritual progress, and those who
view it as a mere program of pros
poritv place their feet in a blind ).'.;

The President's Hold On His Party
The Democratic representation ir
Congress contains many men who are
not only incapable of understanding
the deeper meanings of the President,
but who are constrained to invincible
antagonism by years of secret service
to secret masters. In numbers suffi
cient to block every proposal, there
are Democratic Senators and Repre
sentatives who hate Woodrow Wilson
and his policies, and are eager for
rebellion and. attack. They stand as
sured of the ardent support of at
least part of what is called big busi
ness and the powerful aid of a certain
portion of the daily press.
How- may the obedience of these
men be explained except by their fear
of popular wrath? That behind t?.i
President, believing in him, command
ing through him. they see the awan
oned people of America, free at le::
from the cords of Liiliput? A con

These have been his contributions'
to the sucees-.f'.'' revolution against
the sham practicability that was slo.
ly destroying the creative genuis '.
the American people. They are h':
htrength. What has happcitt-d is Uu
release of the national mind from its
slavery to unrelieved materialism, ano
the recovery of ancient faith in th'
projectile force of spiritual truths.
Under his leadership, idealism Ji -been
restored to its imperative place
in American life, and indispensabh
standards are lifted anew.
It may well be that historians cf
the future will write this day dowi
as one of most tremendous signifi
cance to the United States. Th
slightest study of human progros
makes p'.ain that the things whi
count ,in the evolution of civilization
to higher levels are ever and always
those flames of thi spirit that blav.e
without regard to intellectual formu
las or certainties of profit.
When ha's this so-called practicality
ever entertained the visions that tinn
ed arid wastes into smiling orchards,
spun steel gossamer across dizzy
chasms, sent airships aloft, or gave
new lands to the loot of civilization :
When did the multiplication-table
mind ever free a captive, crush an
evil, liberate justice, or bless the
world with music, art, and beauty ;
All that is fundamentally big and tint
has been the work of vissionaries who
ran gauntlets of ridicule and opposi
tion. In the outset every great move
ment, every wonderful idea,
dream, and democracy was evolved
to make these dreams come true.
It is to this pushed-aside, covered-
over verity that Woodrow Wilson is
leading us back, and it is almost as
though some strange combination of
unseen forces had come to his am.
For purposes of striking illustration,
the European conflict could not have
been precipitated at a more dramatic
time. What the Mexican problem wat
to the United States, the Balkan prob
lem was to Europe, and at the Mo
ment when frank idealism has safe
guarded against the horrors of need
less war, European materialism has
dragged Old World civilization bat
to the jungle stage.
Across the sea the youth and llowei
of great races are being rushed U.

in possibilties of creation and produc

Woodrow Wilson's repudiation ot

a carefully reasoned determination,
but unmistakably the instinctive re
coil of the democratic spirit. Mentai

While recognition of Huerta wat,
the wise course, us practicality defines
wisdom, it was not the right course.
The acknowledgment that he asked
involved a sanction of assassination
and ecquiescence in the legitimacy of

ence promised a restoration of lu

of the virtual slavery of the great

J.f further proof were needed of
Woodrow Wilson's reliance on ideal
ism rather than on logic, it is rui
nished by his attitude in those tryirr
days when "Watchful waiting pro
vided laughter for cynics and an open
avenue of attack for jingoes and con-
cessionairies. With almost incredible
hviiocrisv, int?rvention was urged 1
the interests of civilization" by the
very class most resposible for in
dustrial strife in Colorado, West Vir
ginia and Michigan, for the child
labor horror, for housing evils, and
the existence of slums. No effort of
unscrupulous activity was spared and
at the movement of extreme tension
the blunder of an over-zeaio ad

TO PROTECT CHILDREN
NORTH CAROLINA PHYSICIANS
WANT BETTER CHILD LABOR
LAW ENDORSE 14-YEAR AGE
LIMIT AND 8-HOUR DAY
That the premature employment of
children is injurious to the child and
to aociotv. and should be forbidden to
children under 14 is the opinion of
over 300 physicians of North Carolina.
A questionaire sent out by Mr. W. H.
Swift, secretary of the North Caro
lina Child Labor Committee, brought
back hundreds of replies, indicating
the wide-spread interest which peo
ple all over the State are taking in
the question of child labor reform.
"345 physicians were asked to give
their opinion on the vital question of
whether children under 14 should be
employed in mills, factories, stores or
any other similar place, saia air.
Swift, ''and 338 of these physicians
were interested enough to reply. Near
ly two-thirds of them advocate a 14
year age limit, and an even larger
proportion believe that the employ
ment of children under 16 shoulel be
limiteel Jo 8 hours a day anel prohibit
ed entirely in dangerous occupations
They also recommend that power b.
given to the Commissioner of Labor
and Printing to enforce the chilel la
bor law because a child labor law
without enforcement is a 'farce an.-'
a swindle.' "
The replies received bv Mr. Swift
reveal an interesting fact that th"
abolition of child labor depends solely
on intelligent public opinion.
"When a physician argues that 'in
regard to children under 14 years of
jge. do not think it would be injuri
ous tor them to work 10 or 11 hourr
lav in mills, factories, etc., as i(
would he cmploynent for them and
possibly learn them to realize . thei'
duty to their God first and then their
worldly duty.' I know that be has no
conception of what 11 hours a day
in a cotton mill means to a 10 or 12
year olel chilel," said Mr. Swift, "an'1
that he has never seen a chilel-labor-adult,
that pathetic, insufficient, igno
rant remnant of a man who woulel
work as a child, cheated of an educa
tion and a chance for bodily develop
"But he ought to know. Everv rii
izen in this Stale ought to know that
we are employing 10,000 children tin-
eler 14 in the industries of this Stat:
exclusive of agriculture (according f
the United States Census for lO'T
and that wo are turning out 10,00o
damaged citizens as a result uiv'i
velonetl, unskilled, uneelucated. The
leaeling physicians of North Carolina
unanimously confirm this fact. Is i-.
not time for us to pass a better law?"

EASY MONEY FOR FARMERS
Farmers, fresh eggs are selling in
the ci'.iis at 50 to 60 cents a dozen.
If any resident kicks, his grocer tells
him that the prices askeel leave only
a fair prolit. He also tells the city

The United States Bureau of Agricul
ture or the Postmaster General will
supply him with pamphlets telling all
about how the eggs should be packed.

drop out of sight and are soon for
gotten ? The reason is - plain the
article did not fulfil the promises of
the manufacturer. This applies more
particularly to a medicine. A medi
cinal preparation that has real cura
tive value almost sells itself, as like
an endless chain system the remedy
is recommended by those who have
been benefited, ot those who are in
A prominent druggist says "Take
for example Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, a preparation I have sold for
many years and never hesitate to
recommend for in almost every case
case it shows excellent results, as
many of my customers testify. No
other kidney remedy that I know of
has so large a sale."
According to sworn statements and
verified testimony of thousands who
have used the preparation, the success
of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is due
to the fact that it fulfils almost every
wish in overcoming kidney, liver and
bladder diseases, corrects urinary
troubles and neutralizes the uric acid
which causes rheumatism.
