FILIBUSTER SOLIDIFIES AMERICA
The action of twelve United States senators in conducting a filibuster
In the closing hours of congress that defeated the will of the president,
an overwhelming majority of congress and a like proportion of the people
of the nation, will have at least one beneficient resulte, despite that the
act will stand out as one of the blackest smudges on American patriotism.
It will solidify the American people behind the president in his determina-
tion to assert the inviolability of American life and commerce upon the
high seas. In every section of the country men of every political faith
have denounced the disgraceful filllbuster. Ministers, merchants, profes-
sional men, farmers, laborers, women, everywhere show a determination
to assert for once and all American rights upon the seas, even if it leads
to the war we so ardently desire to escape. The people do not want war
if it can be honorably avoided, but they are ready to fight and sacrifice for
the retention of their honor and their rights of life and commerce if it
becomes necessary to do so. Today there is a grim set to the American
countenance that means stern business.
fellow didn't have any money, either.
BIO BUSINESS TO THE FRONT
Another thing we have noted with a degree of pride in our own coun-
try. "Big Business" has come right to the front in the crisis. Heads of
great manufacturing concerns, railroad corporations, engineering firms,
all as*ured the government that their corporations and their individual
services are at the disposal of the government if war comes. There is
little noise or loud talk, but everywhere a spirit of calm and inflexible
purpose is evident. And this spirit is not confined to "Big Business alone.
"Little Business" marches right up at the front, labor leaders are pledging
the loyalty and assistance of their organizations, farmers are offering both
men and foodstuffs, and women are banding together by the hundreds of
thousands in the common cause. Political consideration are kicked aside,
religious zeal even urges the people on to greater ferver and patriotism.
American people are being solidified asl they have never been before since
the days of Washington. And they are ready to meet whatever is before
REASONS WHY EDITORS ARE RICH
A child is born in the neighborhood the attending physician gets $10.
The editor gives the loud-mouthed youngsiter and the happy parents a send-
off and gets $0.
It grows up and marries. The editor publishes another long-winded
article and tells a dozen lies about the "beautiful and accomplished bride."
In the course of time it dies. The doctor gets from $25 to $100, and
the undertaker gets from $50 to $200 the editor publishes a notice of its
death and an obituary two columns long, and gets $000.
No wonder so many editors are rich.Pittsburgh Catholic.
No man is too old or too young to fight for his home and "MB rights*
in this country, and if the worst comes we can put twenty million men
under armsprovided we can get the arms.
Make friends. The man who is right has the right kind of friends
and the man who is wrong has the kind of friends who are attracted by his
wrongness. A man gets just what he is.
Two men happened to meet the other day in Bemidji. One of them
said he could do work cheaper than any other man in his1
Lots of business meen need advertising and a Idt of 'em need an em-

Yes, Austria is willing to keep peace with the United States, provided
we are willing to back up -and be kicked.
The world do move. First we had a Judas, then a Benedict Arnold,
and now the filibusterer.
Even the name "filibuster" has a rotten sound.
If you can't be patriotic, at least be silent.

THE BEMIDJI RIFLE CLUB

The Bemidji Rifle club has ac
quired an option on land for a new
range which, it is said, will be equal

Fort Snelling. The lack of money
in the treasury to equip this range
with modern target carriers and
transfer of the old equipment to the
new location is the only obstacle in
the way of Bemidji having one of the
finest civilian rifle ranges in the

for the shooting season to open but
the club needs the money now in
order to move the old equipment be

the weather permits shooting over it.
Mr. Randolph, the club secretary,

Do Not Lend Your Keys.
If you happen to be walking along
the street and some one asks you to let
him have your bunch of keys for a
moment, don't do it. He will tell you
that he has forgotten his own keys
and he wants to try your key to
get into his home. It is a fraud.
Some one we know did it the other day.
The thief actually took the impression
in wax of the key. Then he got a key
made. Then he robbed the apartment.
