Dickinson's Speech Flops
The Republican keynote speech seemed to be con
sidered quite a flop by most people. Hie main fea
ture was the good the Republican Party has done and
the bad the Democratic party has done. Most |>eo
ple think he was mistaken in both instances, for no
body seems to have done anything, while the country
has been permitted to drift about on the rocks.
He failed to point to any definite road to recovery,
but simply wallowed around in the same old mire that
the Republican Party has basked in for half a cen
tury. Evidently the party is hot as much concerned
about good government as it is in fingering around
trying to find a string to play on that will please the
people, so that members of the party can be elected
again this fall. The s|>eech showed more interest in
popular government than it did in good government.
What Has Dawes Accomplished?
Why should the Republicans idolize Dawes? What
has he done except smoke his pipe and curse?
Can it be that we have developed a taste for a joker?
Of course, he is popular, but what has he done? He
was a good banker; he was vice president, but not
such a marvelous success; he was Ambassador to Eng
land, where he performed no miracles. Then he re
signed and headed the Reconstruction Finance Cor
poration, which position he resigned only recently,
leaving things in a state of status quo. And nothing
much has been reconstructed, except a few railroad
Dawes' power to make folks think he is going to do
something for them must be his strong point. It cer
tainly is not in the doing.
Heedless of the Poor
It now looks like Congress is going to adjourn very
soon. Why not? It is doing no good in Washington.
Conditions are growing worse all the time. . *
It may be that Congress not in session will be worth
more to business than it will if it remains in session,
unless it takes a decided change for the better. What
Congress needs to do for a Vhile is to listen to the
cry of the poor suffering people rather than follow the
schemes of the idle rich.

ODD - BUT TRUE
When the Bonus Is To Be Preferred
Congress has killed the bonus bill, which was per
haps the proper thing to do, especially when the gov
ernment would have had to isSue bonds to pay it.
The bonus, "However, would be preferable to a big
pork barrel bond issue to build needless public gild
ings. The bonus would give a better distribution
throughout the country possibly than any other way
and would probably afford some temporary relief.
Yet it would have no permanent effect in restoring
better conditions, because good times will have to
come some other way.
Equal opportunities to all classes of people will soon
help the soldier boys, cause the bread lines to disap
pear, and bring prosperity back again. So long as all
the governmental activities are used to protect wealth,
the masses will suffer, whether we have the bonus or
Dropping to the Depths
One of the salf. ;s! things seen on the political hori
zon today is an electorate which, in the midst of the
distress and dangers that are hanging over the peo
ple—can'get their ideals no higher than alcohol.
This is a day when we need to follow the higher
things in life rather than to flounder around in the
channels of sin. Food and clothing are the import
ant things for the people to center their thoughts
upon. " "y ,
Congress expects to adjourn this week.
Its greatest achievement so-far has been the pass
age of a tax bill, most of which will be paid by the
.poor and middle-class [H-ople. Of course, a few good
things have been dolte, but nothing whatever to give
lasting relief. Too many selfish influences are lurk
ing around Washington.
\V. O. Saunders in his newspaper, The Independent,
advances some able reasoning, we believe, in connec
tion with the race between Senator Cam Morrison
and K. K. Reynolds for a seat, in the United States
Senate. Mr. Saunders says: •
"] am as strong for repeal of the Eighteenth Amend
ment and State Rights in the handling of the liquor
problem as Bob Reynolds is. Probably more so, for
1 have nothing to gain and perhaps something to lose,
by my opposition to National Prohibition, while Bob
Reynolds hopes to gain a seat in the United States
Senate with a salary of SIO,OOO a year and a couple
of blonde stenographers thrown in. But there are
more important issues confronting America than this
aggravating issue of Prohibition and this is no time
to commit problems affecting the bread and butter
and liberties'of 120 million Americans into the hands
of happy-go-lucky sky-larking irresponsibles of the
Bob Reynolds type.
" The restoration of beer and light wines or the
legalization of ardent spirits in America is not going
to cure the depression in America any more than light
wines, beer, whisky and cordials have relieved the de
pression in England, France, Germany, Italy, Poland
or Belgium; They've got their beer and depression
too, over ther. No European country with all of its
liquors, cordials, wines and beers has escaped the
"In the crisis facing America I prefer to be repre
sented in Washington by an elder statesman of mature
and sober judgment who is profoundly concerned with
our grfiver problems and whose first concern is not
whether I shall or shall not have a glass of beer."

ville Section, Claim*
Skinnersville.—Unless a competitor
come forth that is at the present un
known, W. B. Barber, a fanner of this
section, is generally regarded as the
man with the largest family in Wash
ington County, as he has 16 children
: living. «-
J There are nine girls and seven boys.
A number of the bhildren are married
now. But when the family was to
gether a few years back it took 100 or
more biscuits for breakfast, with sau
sage, eggs, and cheese to help along.
Mr. Barber usually kills from 4,000 to
7,000 pounds of meat annually.
Today Mr. Barber is living with his
second wife, as his first died some few
years ago. It is very seldom that Mr.
Barber has to employ help on his farm
as his boys do all the work with his
help. " The girls helped mother
