.*THK l'OIH H TOO BIG"
Under (he above caption, the Green
wood Journal of yeatcrday prlntH tho
following editorial comment:
In our Southern elfin ito noth
ing adda more to tho comfort of
a home than a good Hised verandn,
but tlie house must bo largo
enough or tin: thing will look
ridiculous. In other words, it
tho matter of architecture and
good taste un- to be commited it
will not ?Jo to have the porch too
big. A maali house with a great
big poreli strikes one aa being
very much out of proportion, net
ter cul the porch down and make
it (it, even at the riak of com
Tho ?ame thing applies to a
speech. The introduction should
not he long. The ?peaker can not
afford to keep hi? audience stand
Ing tco long in tho porch, be lt
maali or lar^e. Hut what we are
thinking about now is thc fellow
who lu ealled upon to Introduce
a speaker. Wc have Just aeon a
very forcible illustration of the
wuy a thing should not be done.
A gentleman of nationul reputa
tion was introduced to an audi
ence in a neighboring town, and
ff the nowspaper reports aro cor
rect, Instead of a simple Introduc
tion a speech wus made covering
much of tho ground that the
speaker was expected to cover.
Now, lt strikes us that a per
formance of this kind is not only
in hud taste, but it ls In one sonne
a reflection upon the Intelligence
of tho audienco and a bore, not
only to tlie audience, but to the
speaker. Of all the porches that
could'ever bo built one of this
kind is thc most out of taste and
proportion. It Is a monster of
frightful inion. . ,
Wo have an idea to whom our con
temporary refers, and, if wo are cor
rect In our surmise, wo can assure
liim that the .introduction which he
thinks WBB of "frightful proportions,"
was fully as good if not botter than
that whicli followed, that is, the
np ec eh of him who waa introduced.
And, besides, it didn't cost us a dol
lar to hear thc introduction; and,
what's moro, wo can hear him any
time wo got ready, and that entirely
free. So much for that.
But since our contemporary han
brought up tho subject of ; speeches,
let us consider tho speech of that
"gentleman of national reputation" to
whom he refers. We wonder If our
contemporary has over * mot with the
type of follow who has pronounced
views of his Own about matters, but
ls never willing, to concede that the
other fellow haB any right to his own
differing opinion about the same thing;
or If the other follow does disagree
with him, he is a scoundrel, ot ?pxno
sort and bras ulterior motives'in hold
ing the opinion that ho does? in
other..words, we don't know whether
tho esteemed Journal Is in favor of
"reasonable .preparedness" ..or"-; is
strong for "peace at-any'"price/' but
If it ls in favor of the former, how
doon lt relish hoing.'called .a.'-Vjingo
Bu?ct" and Ita editor a "Jingo editor?"
And c^afn, lt lt ls In favor of "rea
sonable preparedness," how does it
rolisb the idea of having lt charged
that. *iui::i> nt/onoto? favoring nreuar
edncss are the gun and ammunition
factories and the dealera in battle
Somehow or other, we never did
think nu wo?? of the man . who thinks
that thoso who disagree with him are
either foolB or graftors as wo do the
man who ls hopelessly fixed In his
own opinions and not amenable to
rea ?JO n, but is willing to suffer the
other fellow to have hi? own Ideas,
though different1 from hts, without
branding him as a two-by-four and
THE COST OF PBEPAHEDNE8S
Tho cutest;.. thing, about prepared
ness ls that it''ls going to cost thc
American people a heap ot money.
Our army and navy have always cost
us more per soldier and sailor and
gun and chip than thone of any other
nation. Now the expense for any par
ticular defensive unit la going to be
higher than Over.
The government, has met with ' an
unpleasant surprise SD letting' 'con
tracts for two/new .battleships., it
nnchi that the ships can't be bu.SU for
anywhere near the usual price. The
private shipyards can;' get - all,. the
work they want from the belligerents,
at prices insuring them hugo profits,
and they're not Interested in strength
ening American defenses unless
Uncle Sam. will pay then? war prices.
The same situation ls likely to bo
found In every branch ot expenditure
for armament. Guns will coBt more,
ammunition will cost more, automo
bile a and fuel and uniforms ?nd all
sorts of supplies will cost more. Bren
lp tho government shipyards and'mu
nition shops, labor and mate-rials' will
The extreme militarists and na*,
alista , are blithely given to ignoring
such, matters. They talk treelfj^^
standing army of 260,000 men, a re
serve ot a million or. two, a navy aa
big as England's and enough . munt"
tloiiB stored up to light a great war,
without either counting the cont or
: inn:. Unie how it la to he met.
It I? unquestionably necessary to
strengthen our defenses. The senti
ment of the nation lt* In favor of
greater preparedness. But WP are
already ?pending S2&0.000.000 a year
on our army und navy, and the com
paratively moderate plans submitted
by the president seem to involve at
least tho doubling of that expenditure
for Bcveral years. Whatever congress
does in tho matter needs to be done
in sober judgment, with exact reck
oning of the coat and the most eco
nomical expenditure of every dollar.
Our money will buy al! too little de
fense, at best, if our past military and
naval history affords any criterion.
THE DEATH PENALTY
On the same day thal foseph Hlll
strom, the "I. W. W"" wan shot to
death un a convicted murderer in the
Utah penitentiary. William Zimmer,
convicted of murder In Ualtimore, was
sentenced to serve ono day Jn jail for
Thexe cases represent the ex*r mes
In our treatmen* of murderers. And
ubsurd aa it appears to punish a mnn
w' h onlv one doy's imprisonment for
hilling a human bejng, the Baltimore
r< ;:nlty moro nearly represents Amer
k\',n sentiment than does thc Utah
Thoro wore great differences, of
course. Joseph Hillstrom waa lound
guilty of delib?rate murder. His rec
ord wan considered bad, and hit?
I mminence in L W. W. activity from
v/blch Utah has suffered much, was
looked upon as aggravating his of
fense. Tho evidence against him vi.o
circumstantial but apparently ccii
eluitve. There was nothing partic
ularly horrifying In bia being shot,
rather than hanged. The Utah law al
lows a choice. Shooting is probably
tho more merciful of the two method:'.
William Zimmer, tho Baltimore
murderer, io a paralytic, 67 years old,
The man ho killed was proprietor of
a cheap lodging house. Zimmer,
while drunk, bad an altercation with
him, and struck ono blow with lils
fist, which resulted In the victim's
ipi. ih. The killing was, in a sense, ac
eiilentnl, and the. prisoner's physic .1
c . 1'tlon helped to win him leniency.
"But there was one common ele
ment In these cases. The ridiculously
trivial penalty imposed on Zimmer
wu- thc extremo manifestation of the
Anyjflcan prejudice against capital
pu nish in ont.. Tl: o - r. ame prejudice ap -
ju ni ed in the wave of protest which
rolled In upon the Utah authorities
frc rr all the rest of the country, and
included an appeal for leniency from
tfc-v prw'dcnt of the United States.
Utah rejected these protests, as she
had a perfect right to do. But there
is no mistaking tho powerful opinion
that exlata againat such togal taking
of human life. Every conapicuous
murder case rcvealH it. In r?ponse
I . this opinion, B* -te after elate is
ahoMahlncr tho death pnnalty. Even
tually Utah will do likewise, and tho
Hillstrom case will havo helped to
hasten tho decision.

Detulin of (?cnnan Gu?.
Although the 42-cm. guns used by
the Germans in battering down the
ltc/r!flficatioas 'at Liege and Namur
attracted world-wide attention during
the carly Plages of the war, tho secret
of its dimensions and other features
has been so Jealously guarded that
practically aotldng has boen made
public in regard to b'.is monster mor
tar, beyond tho terrible destruction
wrought by it. At a recent meotlng of
artillery, engineers at Dusseldorf, Ger
many, an engineer of the Krupp works
delivered a lecture on tho making of
heavy artillery and particularly on
the making of tho 42-cm. guns, or tho
"Big Berthes," as the Germans call
them, and an apparently reliable To
port of this lecture has been trans
mitted to tX/Ia country. According to
this report, which appears in tho De
cember Popular Mechaaica Magazine,
tho big gua weighs about 97 1-2 tons,
while the base on which it stands
v.!.?3U in firing position weighed 4411-4
tons. Tao barrel is 1G feet long, and
the theil fired from lt is about 50
inches long and weighs 880 pounds.

Tire Cigarette Law..
Loulslana newspaper editors are de
ploring the failure of their state to
enforce a law which prohibits fc.e sale
of cigarettes to minors. Tho law is
a drastic one, and provides that any
one selling or giving away cigarettes
or tobacco to minors ohali be heavily
fined. Despite this prohibition, how
ever, many boys, young men and wo
men In Louisiana have acquired the
smoking habit, and, apparontly,. bave
no di il! cul ty ia getting all the. cigar
ettes or- tobacco they desire. Tho
editor of the Southern Indicator, Ham
mond, La., believes the prohibition
law is bad, for the reason that it lias
not been enforced, and now, tant an
effort ls to be> mad o to enforce lt, it
leaves only two ways open to smok
ers < to get their cigarettes; to .buy
them from a. man of legal agc, or to
"You ean't say to a boy," says The
Vindicator, "in a dictatorial manner,
' Th ou shalt not smoke,' add think that
he will obey, especially it he has
been smoking two or three years. But
you can talk and plead with Mm to
give it up, and he will, in all proba
bility, try-to oatt. Some succeed;
the majority fail. If mero pleading
and urging were done, at homo and at
school, instead of usuv? the Impera

less wayward, : vicious boys , to con

Sins of the Movies.
A correspondent ot The Sun, with
many ol'aers of discrimination, finds
danger In the moving pictures
through the scenes ot physical vio
loace which are enacted. This form
of entertainment has both merits and
demerits. Fiction is uninteresting un
less novel and active in progress, but
lt should bo confined to the limits of
possibilities. All of the episodes, in
the reels constituting serials ia a
score of presentations are preposter
ous in rae ' extreme, but seemingly
not so recognized by the mild im
beciles who thrillingly applaud. The
main actors of both sexes are made
to ignore the hairbreadth escapes
from previous dangers' and dumbly
fall Into new and ciumsy traps set by
shallow vlllians who invent elabo
rate death dealing devices instead of
employing the speedier time honored
means. Everybody ls lacking in com
mon precaution; and acting on im
pulse does everything precisely wrong
and seemingly calculated io. get t?em

real life there would bo no way out.
