A few more ships sunk in tfce Dardanelles
will give the allies really a
great submarine fleet in that locality.
Now you spoke a parable, and it will
not take long for fc-e English to have
a pretty good submarine fleet in the
var zone as laid out by Germany.
These fleets will be of (very little ser- i
vice to the allies.

That is very true. And if people ;
were as ready to help one another
generally as t:ey are to offer advice |
and make criticisms it would be a,
pretty good world also. In fact it is.
not suck a "bad world after all. i

announces - that he voted for '"Manning:

This is an entirely new doctrine.
Because a man votes for another he
is inhibited from criticisinm him, and !
must agree with aim and endprse all
he says and does. We would not wan'
any such follower as that. Tfeat may j
account, however, for so many of the'
editors "passing up" so many of the j
breaks of the present governor, they,
voted for him, and, therefore, can not
even pass to him a mild criticism.

at once claimed our attention and

able that any of us ever live, to mid- j

the habits of the children who are in
school and see that they ate neat and
polite and courteous, and that they
behave, and all that, but it has almost
reached tflse point where there is no

Howard Estabrook in ^liss"
With Barbara Tenant.
Bret Harte died .prematurely in 1902,
aged 64. It is a pity he did not live
another 13 or 14 years to enjoy the appreciation
of his writings which the
motion picture Gas created. "M'Liss"
on the screen, in which Howard Estabrook
is starring, will draw renewed
attention to Harte's wonderful skill as
a story teller. The tiheme was successfully
dramatized some years ago.
But no longer can it be said that "the
play's tibe thing." It's the film now.
Melisso Smith ('M'liss) is the daughter
of Smith's Pocket, Red Mountain,
Nevada. Smith's Pocket did not.produce
Smita much gold, so Smith deCArfPY^
hie Prwlrof tru-il- tn /Irint anrf
was eitfrer sift>t or shot himself. Anyhow,
he died, leaving unruly little
M'liss to take care of the Pocketers.
She was sent to school and fell violently
in love with the school master,
Gray. Bret Harte writes vivid descriptions
of Nevada camp life; his characters
are sympathetically drawn, and
the story gives the producer plenty of
scofc for introducing effective settings,
inasmuch as !be transfers the
action from Nevada to Southern California,
where M'liss passed her earlier
Don Jose, a Mexican, robbed the
dead man, Smith, of a letter addressed
^to G**ay. in which Melissa's father stated
tibat the girl would one day be
rich. There was oil and gold in California.
And oil is found to the enrichv'qnt,
not of M'liss, but of the treacherous
and thieving Don Jose.
But M'liss comes into her own after
the "-lexican's perfidy has been revealed
anc Gray, the faithful guardian and
schoolmaster, secures the girl. A
wonderful series of beautiful scenes;
g'TwiiTvine'c: snri vipws are irlnrier? in
the film, wihich is a rich dramatic offering
full of interest and excitement.
M'liss is played by Miss Barbara
Tennant and the producer of the picture,
'Mr. 0. A. C. Lund, plays the part
of Don Jose, tlbe villain of the drama.
Beautiful photography distinguishes
this sumptuous offering.
j This picture will be shown at the
( opera house Wednesday, June 9.
In Memory of Miss Jane Boozer.
One precious to our hearts has gone,
The voice we loved is stilled;
The nlace made 'vacant in our home
Can never more be filled.
Our Father in His wisdom called
The boon His love has given,
And though on eartih. tJhe body lies
The soul is safe in [heaven.
Oli sister, thy gentle voice is hushed,
Thy warm true heart is still,
And on thy pale and peaceful face
Is resting death's cold chill.

is a very large section of the American
press that is standing ready to
push tihis country into a declaration
, of war with Germany at the first opj
port unity. The effort was made in
j connection with the sinking of the
(Lusitania, and it would have easily
, succeeded except for the fact that
President Wilson kept his head. That
(the thing is to be repeated in connection
with some other incident is reasonably
certain; but in the meantime
let us look into the justice of the thing
. as it appears on its face. England
! undertook to blockade German ports.
She had a right to do it if she could, j
She could and did. But the blockade
of German, ports was not sufficient,
and England undertook to blockade
all ports, hostile and neutral, through
which supplies could reach Germany.
( She had no right to do this; but she j
did it. Our own nation protested, but j
did not resist. England asserted her j
right to Lold up and search ships on j
the higfn seas. The United States pro- j
tested, but did not resist. Germany,
cut off from intercourse with the outside
world, declared her submarine
blockade. The famous U-9, that had
sunk the Hogue, Cressy and Aboukir,
held up a British passenger ship in trne
North Sea; but the gallant commander,
being unwilling to sink the vessel
without giving trne women and children
a chance to get away, was himself
sunk by a torpedo boat convoy
while he was waiting. After that no

other German commander cared to take
such a risk, and the Lusitania was
sunk without warning. There is no
justification for the sinking of the
Lusitania, neither is there any justification
for the blockading of neutral
pons Decause Germany can De reaeuea
through them. There is no justification
for the ruin of Belgium by the
Germans, and neither is there any justification
for the ruin of East Prussia
by the Russians. Germany is not to
be excused for taking the lives of
Americans on the Lusitania; but is the
British government to be excused for
allowing Che Lusitania to sail through
water infested by German submarines?
It was the British admiralty who, before
the tragedy, urged Americans that
tfcere was no danger and who after
the tragedy declared that it did not
have sufficient resources to convoy
such vessels as the Lusitania When
we think of the circumstance of American
lives being sacrificed as victims
of a German submarine, it makes us
see red as against t'he Germans; but
when we think that except for British
duplicity and British cowardice whid^

cans for the purpose of inciting us
against the Germans, the red gets
thicker. However, it is quite clear
that Mr. Wilson sees through toe whole
thing, and does not propose to let
either side use us against the other if
he can help it.
