'New York Globe. On Us front paso it carries a little feature called "The Inquiring Reporter." Every day this reporter asks five persons, picked at random, a question. A week ago today tte question was, "Should the tbnerlcan President ask Britain not to let'- MacSwincy Ho asked this question of five, people at one Old PostDffice in New York City.

Ardley, Journalist, Providence, H. an Individual lie has the rigtir to say whether he wants to file or not, hut if we concede the right of any man to starve himself to ob- tain his freedom then the faerie of all laws falls to pieces. We .believe these answers are really representative of sound Ameri- can opinion. It has been the politicians playing to the Irish vote that we have been hearlng'from, and too many people have rushed to the conclusion that they voiced the views of the .United States. In that they are mis- taken. The answers to the questions 'of the New York reporter make that clear. but which, as shown in tbt> present action in regard to a general strike engineered by Soiillle acd Co., is nevertheless a "challenge to Constitu- tionalism." as it is interpreted to be by the Lloyd Ctorge Government. It Is somewhat remarkable to. note that at a recent meeting between repre- sentatives of the extreme -I.abor move- meat 3D Uritain ant! the Preach. Con- federation of Labor a member of the. latter wanted to kcow about the- 'British Soviet." it is related that Mr. Adumsop, "the nominal.leader of the i'arllaiuentary Labor turned to the interpreter and. said, "Plcii-e tell him lhat we don't like Iho word 'Soviet.' Council ol Action is the recognized title." Judging from the tenets of Mr. one wonders "what's In a was another embarrassing question was put to the delegates oy one of the Frenchman, "What about' .Appleton'.' Is he with you or i This put Mr. Adamsoii In something of a Quandary, and his re-! ply was not altogether convincing. Mr. Appleton holds a'D important position as one of the sane Labor in iiritam. H was he who received and published the letters of Colonel Jolin Ward exposing the nsir of Bel- she" ism as gathered by the Labor ciission to Russia.

It is well when we hear the clamor to re- member, one of. the apt illustrations given by'William Jennings Bryan in one of his many .speeches'.

ACTION OF ROBERT SMILLIE Hobert SmIlIIc, the leader of the ex- treme section of. the Labdr party of Great Britain, .evidently knows who his true friends are in the cable mcs- pageliB forwarded to the 0. B. o. dele- gates attending tho conference now being held in Cajgary. In this he has requested that simultaneous action be taken for bringing about a strike In Canada on September 25, the date on which it 13 proposed to precipilat a general strike'of the miners In Great Britain. Robert Smlllle is not only a trouble .faaker in the Old Country but seeks to start-trouble elsewhere. The par- ticular views he holds may be gath- ered from the sympathy ho has with the O4 B. D-., as may le judged from hia cable dispatch with the reniiesl for sympathetic action. The miners of Canada, be they O.
