While this hardly seems probable, as
the issue is never man vs. woman, but
rather Liberal vs. Conservative or
Laborite, still, it is a problem on
which Britishers may ponder.
Socially, the over-preponderance of
he women is leadinig to a decline in
morality that British reformers are
Sept busy fighting. Many English
girls do not expect to be married-
there are not enough men to go

Every year in England is more thatn

Economically, this unnatural state

than doubtful' virtues 'of the others..
As ,to Mr,.. Gompers, we have differed
with him and 'liked himt, becausie. we
believe him to be a ;good citizen with,
a very large share indeed of real
good sense. When, however, he
touches, or the Federation in its state-1
ment touches, the Supreme Court of
the United States, we ask him to re-
member what we have credited him
in this respect of good sense,
It is our duty to express a decided
doubt whether Mr. Gompers, with his
experience, with his knowledge and
with his character, really wishes the
Federal Constitution amendea so
that ''by a two-thirds vote Congress
m~ay, validate a law which the Supreme
Court has declared unconstitutional:"'
These matters of lab~or are fundament-
ally social in their nature; they, are
not political, in the common m:ap-:
ing of the word. Would Mr. Gompers
jthrow a quete t .' f social betterment
into the maw o i~oitics? That is what
would happen were such an amend-
ment added to the Constitution. If 'he
or his associates ar~e painting 'a pic-
ture wh~erein sll b4e portrayed labor
suffering from a conspiracy At the
hands of the majority of the people
and the Supreme Court, we can onlyj
say, "Forget it." He knows that t I
will not be a ,true picture.'
We are sure that Mr. Gompers
would not have immigration regulated!
by treaty rather than by ,act of Con-1
press, yet suppose that the Supreme
Court Were. to' insist that the power~
of. Congress were paramount in this~
repc;would Mr. Gompers care' much"

amendment to cuompel all chil1dren- of
school age to atltend publicshol
be submitted to the voters 4t the
November election, this amendment to
be known as the anti-parochial school
amendment. The supreme court: inf
its ruling granted also a writ ol!' iman-
danes to compel the secretar~y 'of
state to put the proposal on the haIl-

preme court has dlone about every-,
thing in its power to attempt the do-
ing away with all parochial schools.
There seems to be some sort of back-
hand matter in this situation.f
The results of such an attempt in
the state elections of several years
ago should be sufficient evi~pnce as
to the attitude of the voters on the
subject. At that time, those~ in favor
of such an. amendment suffered such
Ia defeat as to make their efforts
laughable, tragically so. What, the
purpose at this time is in again' plac-
ing it on the ballot is really more
than can 'be seen. 'Undoubtedly it is
an ulterior purpose and one from
which only a few are to benefit

tion; the investlgato'rs of> the pro-
posed amendment know, as well as thel
most ardent objectors to it that the
bill will never have so much as a
look-in, so far as passage by majority
vote Is concerned. Then why all'
the needless work to attempt to have
it passed? Merely that someone or
some group concerning which we
know little or nothing about will,
benefit whether it is passed or not,
that the placing of it on the state bal-!
lots is sufficient for the purpose that
