There Are St states in the United states. This fact or. Hairleson has chosen to ignore it has been necessary for some ten or , of these component and somewhat in dependent parts of the Union to remind him of it they to Sanction Telephone fixed a Ymir. a depart ment. It will be recalled that a few. Weeks Ajo a from that department advised the country that a sweeping reduction in toll line charges was to be made. The mathematics of the order were too complicated for imme Diate comprehension Ami great was the astonishment of the Telephone is ing Public to find that the stir Tucson adjustment in Many cases actually advanced toll rates. The Public utilities commissions of new Jersey Michigan and other states have stepped in to postpone the the whole Burleson procedure has worn a curious and elusive aspect. The seizure of the telephones May have been needful and though the fact was never Clear. But no one has yet been Able to understand the mystery of the cables seized when the War an end. Seeming defects of it retort Atleed to a cer Tain distrust of or Burleson s have nurtured a suspicion of the whole performance. Here As in the Case of the railways the great economies hoped for have seemed almost e illusory and the net result appears to Bei increase instead of a lowering of the Cost to the y. Tribune.

If the league of nations shall be form by president , our National future will be mercy i the varying inter ests of other nations in Kurop and Asia if or. Can succeed in his Leigh landed Effort to commit this country to paternalism or worse ii the absurd theory that his prese it actions Are essential to the win Ning of the War then individual rights in this country arc at the mercy of the varying politic Al interests or whims of whoever happens to be temporarily vested with Prticia authority. Many people have been won to the support of the league of nations scheme by the false assertion that we must Choso Between that league and chaos. Many people have been induced to look with complacency upon usurpation in t he form of seizures of Telephone Telegraph and Cable properties because those properties Hap pen to be owned by corporations and because it is. Falsely asserted that they can be operated economically and by gov eni1 in sent officials than by private managers. According most plausible Cei Ved from our secretive representatives in is apparently the Plain to weave the league of nations Inlo the peace treaty in such i Way As to Force its adoption without Opportunity to consider it solely upon its own Mer its thus practically nullifying that provision of the Constitution which stipulates that trea be s shall be made Only upon the advice and consent of two thirds of the Senate. It is pro posed to Force adoption of an objectionable rider As an essential incident to a desirable peace treaty. It is proposed in our Domestic business affairs to scramble Public Utility con Cerns an destroy their separate in Soleh a Way i of make Restituti Ini difficult if thus Force the country to of government ownership without re Gard to he judgment or wishes of the people or their representatives in Congress.
