Night Editor-NORMAN R. THAL
There will always be prophets who
like the muck rakers of the Pilgrim's
Progress see nothing but the dirt
and filth of the world about them;
there will always be gloomy Cassan-
dras to gorge the land with ill timed
and pessimistic prophecies of impend-
ing 'doom, and there will always be
people ready to lap up these pearls
of sophistry with an appetite whetted
to starvation point, always ready to
feast upon ill news.
Dealers in wholesile prognostica-j
tion devote much of their energies to
prediction of ultimate doom for Eng-
land. Events of the past few days, in
which James Ramsay MacDonald, thb
labor prime minister of England dis-
solved parliament; choosing to go to
the country for support rather than
to resign ignominiously before he had
an opportunity to finish his work
which he had begun, have greatly in-l
creased the market for such ama-
teur prophecies as we have spoken of.
The English "crisis" is not the "
catastrophe which most people believe
it to be. It is unfortunate that Mr.
Ma,Donald has been forced to call an
election, the third in two years, but

liberal party long ago lost its liberal
character and has for many years

The probable outcome of the election
-which will occur in the early part of
Tvember will be a small gain for the
laborites, even the most sanguine
managers hone for little more thon
a gain of forty votes, a sharp loss
on the rart of the liberals, and a
gain for the conservatives.

profitless prophecy referring with
somewhat of irony to the trend of
prophecy last January when the labom

has spent probably as profitable a nine I
months as it has since the war. The
