REARDON & SON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice at Monroe, Washing- ton, under the act of Much 3, 1879. the general opinion in this country is that the senate needs a little "pep" in its deliberations, and that a slight shaking will result in better action on the part of that body. Maybe the Dawes attempt will antagonize rather than win, but at any rate it serves to call public attention to a slight re- form that the people will welcome.

There was a time when we thought local optic,n was a cure for the drink evil. then came a statewide plan, and even that failed. Now we have a national plan and that seems to be unsatisfactory, for Canada, Mexico and Europe are putting it over and a big lot of it succeeds in making a landing. The home-made "moon," h)wever, is the thing that is doing the killing business. Not so very long ago we had it from a state offi- cial that more men, young and old, were coming into the insane hospitals through the moonshine route than from ary other cause, from almost all other causes combined. Day by day we read of the corruptibility of law enforcement agents in this depart- ment, and' it is getting t come to be more and more an accepted truth that "every man has his price" and the people's money paid in state and federal taxes is being spent to pay a group of crooked officials. Upon top of all this comes word from President Coolidge that it loks ,to him as if it was up to the police- men of the nation to enforce the law, making it a state right matter, for county and civic officials, to per- form. The situation is becoming more and more discouraging for the public as a whole do not cooperate in its enforcement. The fact is we have more brewers and distillers in America today than we ever did. What was supposed to become a lost arh seems to have become ar art pre- servative. Prohibition does not measure as a synonym with sobriety temperance and a right law-abiding spirit. ONE ON CHARLEY Opions over the country differ as to the wisdom or lack of it displayed by Vice President Dawes on inaugur- al day, when he figuratively "read the riot act" to the staid senators assem- bled to hear his address. Whatever may be said of the political sagacity shown by Dawes it is very evident that he itends to see if it is possible to make a dent in the old encrusted traditions of the senate, which are backed by hoary and antique prac- tices and rules, and defended by so many members of that body, irre- spective of political affiliations. Thinking citizens know that some de- liberation is necessary and advisable in the senatorial department of our government if it is to function as it should. The senate was'intended, and rightfully so, as a check on too hasty legislation. In defending that func- tion certain rules and methods of pro- cedure are advisable and necessary. But that does not mean that our sen- ate hould obstruct legislation merely by the mouthings of long-winded ora- tors cf any or all political beliefs, ir- respective of the merits of questions involved. Moreover, without refer- ence to the technicalities involved in the Dawes episode, or the political sagacity desplayed or not displayed, The price must be low and the quality high if your pat- ronage is deserved.
