It is only too obvious that shortl3
this organization, especially poteni
in its unknown strength, may rise tC
the highest political importance. Al-
ready, as a signal of prophecy, the
Klan is exercising insufferable juris-
diction in its strongholds Texas and
Alabama, in the former to elect its
senatorial candidate by an overwhelm-
ing majority and in the latter openl3
to threaten Senator Underwood, one
of its most fearless opponents.
The spokesmen of the Klan base
their most fundamental appeal on th(
return to democracy, but it must be
readily apparent to the most casual
investigator that its success can onl3
end in stringent and aristocratic bos-
sery of the most reactionary type. If
the Klan continues to grow with its
present wild-fire rapidity, it will quick-
ly assume the political tyranny to
a far more insidious degree than the
G. A. R. formerly and the American
begion now exercises. Its present
status is deplorable and depressing
but its further growth would be no-
thing less than disastrous.

Holyrood alace in tdiibirgh"three
days ago.
Today, if the Prince of Wales wer
to comne to Holyrood, he would b
second to James Brown. James Brown
as if touched by the wand that im-
posed the magical effects upon Cinder-
ella, is no longer the miner, nor ar
there any traces to the fact that he
was a miner. Like in a story book
all outward signs of the hero's for-
mer position in life vanish into ob
livion, and suddenly we behold him
dressed in a manner befitting royalty
with no trace of awkwardness or em-
barrassment visible, his. wife equally
well dressed and presentable, standing
by his side.
Bemedaled police, smart soldiers
and nifoTmed servants are now at
ir. own's command. Indeed, even
the archioness of Ailsa came for-
ward 'from the doorway of the Holy-
rood Palace when he arrived there
and as she took his hand she curt-
sied ow. What a sight that would
have, been for all the ghosts who
hau n the ancient Palace; "that of
Mary Queen of Scots, whose room is
very ear; of Bonnie Prince Charlie,
who geceived guests at that very door;
and t e stern John Knox himself who
was lso often there."
Th appointment of Mr. Brown as
the representative of the King has
stirrei OGreat Britain decidedly. It
has seized the public imagination of
England as a great surprise. But at
the s me time, it is being dered
a pleasing development of emo-
cratic spirit "under the A eis of the
British Monarchy."
What the outcome of this startling
precedent may be is only conjectural.
While there can be little harm in car-
rying out such policy, the good that
it can produce may be great. If the
good is just this development of the
democratic spirit under the Aegis of
the British Monarchy, it is a good
which is truly great. At any rate,
Great Britain seems to have taken an
initial step in further advancing the
world's democratic spirit.

Let 'it be said at the outset regard-
ing President Coolidge's veto of the
soldiers' insurance bill that he could
not consistently have done otherwise.
In his first annual message to the Con-
gress he said tersely, "I do not favor
the granting of a bonus." It is true,
that a paid-up insurance policy is
in general opinion different from a
cash gift to the ex-service men, but
evidently it is not so regarded by the
President. And so long as this is
'the vay he looks at it, he had only
one thing to do. He had to veto the
bill. ;lt was, politically speaking, a
brave deed.
In his instance Mr. Coolidge has
Ishown himself stronger and more
far-seeing than his own party. By
the overriding of his veto, the presi-
dent's leadership has been discounted,
but b his wise act he has proved
beyond a doubt that he possesses cour-
age and common sense; and the in-j
telligent, patriotic people of this coun-
try, in all political parties, will ap-
prove his stand.
