RIGHTEOUS WAR NOT
President TVheeler of the University
of California thinks that a righteous
v.ar is not of the sort that can be
compared with hell. President Wheeler
believes the Balkan war Is more
"righteous than hell," and he adds,
"Let the sword bo drawn streaming
President Wheeler spoke of "War
and Hell" during his lecture at the
Y. M". C. A. yesterday afternoon, and
he was greeted with applause.
"They say war is hell," he said, "but
the Balkan-Turkish war has more
righteousness than hell. Every person
present wants Turkey driven back. If
you can not get arbitrators to do it,
if you can not get lawyers to do it,
tiien let the sword be streaming blood
"This Balkan war is a struggle of a
liberty loving people to free themselves
from Turkish domination which the
powers have been fastening upon them:
it is a struggle between freedom and
fatalism and goes back into the roots
of history. *
In the fifteenth century Moham
medanism pushed its way almost to
the gates of Vienna, a shock from
which Kurope Is just now recovering.
Kaces from the cold north found their
nutlet the warmer south through the
Kalkan peninsula. On this account
there is congregated in this region a
mixture of peoples. Jealousy is there
in the highest degree.
"The powers are jealous as to who
shall come into control. Germany has
been fraternizing with the sultan with
a view to securing an outlet for her in
creasing industry. England opposes
Russia, which is eager to have a gate
way into the Mediterranean. Now,
Germany, with its mighty engines of
war, is for peace and with Austria Is
holding things steady on the continent,
"The upheaval on the part of the
young Turk party will no doubt check
ihe movement southward, for it is clear
That four buffer states will be formed—
Albania, Montenegro, Servia and Bul
"Somehow this war will work out for
the good of the world, since behind
the curtain Is the thought and purpose
of God, in whom we all exist, whose
will is righteousness and who will
reign king of the nations." -

The fall came as the climax to the

Suddenly Paterson dropped to a low

IS BURNED DOWN
Entire Top Floor Bursts
Into Flames at Once;
Fire of mysterious origin destroyed
a 28 room lodging house of cheap con

but by quick work the damage was
confined principally to the lodging
The Old Reliable saloon, of which
William Howekamp Is proprietor, on
the floor beneath was slightly dam
aged. Crossed wires are suggested as
possibly the cause of the fire.
Only the fact that the fire occurred
early In the evening, when the ma
jority of the 23 lodgers were out, pre
vented loss of life, as the had

In the street sounded the alarm. Four

The fact that the entire top floor of
the frame structure burst into flames
at practically the same time at first
suggested that the building had been
set on* fire. Fire Chief Towle and De

Those in the house were William

would be found that the object of his

of his kingly tail.
Unlike most park horses Peto re

is unflagging. Saturday while Frank

Pete, turned loose for a brief holiday

the fence and began to nibble at what
his near sighted eyes told him was a
lovely shrub, but which proved to be
the caudal appendage of the buffalo
For about four minutes there was
wild excitement, for Pete was once a
well trained saddle animal, and, feeling
the shrub slipping between his teeth,
he laid back in his tracks and refused
to let go of the choice morsel. Some
thing had to give way, and the some
thing proved to be the buffalo's tail.

by Miss Adela Rogers, the 17 year old
