Dr. Sunderland concludes his awful

by an    appeal  for local    self-govern-
selves   an.l    generally   at   moderate ment.    He quotes Lincoln as saying
prloes for those who have money to that "there is no nation good enough

tiiiually. Even In the best year- they caulej as in,ning ihe matter thus:
