PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY
The primary election takes
place next Tuesday, and every
white man who has his name on
the club books should turn out
and vote, m doing so, he should
divest himself of petty differ
ences, and select from the num
* er'of candidates the best qual
ified for the position the candi

up voters to gratify a prejudice,
is the work of a selfish schemer,

upon the counsel of extremists,
there is no telling when the
of strife will come.
New complications have set in
by Japan sending a ultimatum
to Germany to withdraw the
German warships from the Ori
ent, and to evacuate Kiau-Chan,
and given until Sunday to com
ply with the demands of Japan.
If Germany does not comply it,
-mieans that another strong naval
power has been added to those
already against Germany, and it
only makes it more futile for
Germany to ever win in the
life struggle Emporer William
brought .on himself needlessly.
When the war started Japan
intimated its sympathy with
*England, but it did not intend to
become involved unless the triple
alliance undertook to invade her
territory; now since matters have
reached a more serious state, it
looks to us as if Japan in de

of activity in China means to be
come an active ally to the pow
ers against Germany, and will
join the British fleet in the de
struction or capture of all Ger
man craft in the @hinese or
Japanese waters, and they will
also assist their allies ir. the
Judging from the despatches
that have leaked through the
censored cablegrams, if only a
part of them are true, this war
will put the finishing touches to
the German Empire, and that
country will be divided up into
little kingdoms, dukedoms, and
principalities, similar to the pre
sent condition of the little king
doms which made up the great
empire of Germany prior to the
Franco Prussian war. It far
ther appears to us that the mon
archs of Europe are trembling,
they are in the greatest danger
of disruption. and Russia is gov
erned by an autocratic Czar, the
country will be divided into
States, like the United States,
and it will be formed into a Re
publie with a constitution, or it
may remain a limited monarchy,
similar to England. the same
will happen to Germany; France
is already a Republic. fhe war
will not only disarrange the gov
ernments but it will maske a
great change in the map of Eu
rope, and although at a great
cost of blood and treasure, the
final outcome of it will be, the
unfettering the pe'ople from the
chains of ignorance, and the pro
mulgation of civilization.
The Times has endeavored to
keep the'editorial columns from
extreme - partisanship during
this entire campaign, The edi
tor has his personal preferances,
,the same as any other citizen,
and in his choice of candidates
will 'ote for the men. of his
choice jus as he advises ever
voter to do. He thinks it is
wrong to inflame th'e passions of
:igt ~., and his course has
been to try and, adviss against
extremes. It is his purpose to do
his part towards bringing har
mony to our people as their is
nothing to be gained by this con
stant friction, and if the masses
wil reflect they will see that a
conservative course does more
good than irritating agitation.
Let every man go: to the polls
next.Tuesday to do his part as a
good citizen, and if he will, the
result, mattersnot how it goes,
will leave no heart-burnings.
and the spirit of rivalry will not
end in bad feeling.
President\-Wilson .has put ma
chiery to work to investigate
the cause of the advance in food
prices, and it he has the power
he will bring the speculators to
taw in the courts of the United
States. It is our opinion, the
action of the President is not on
ly timely, but it is solely for the
protection of the masses against
that greedy horde of speculators
who stand ready to take advant
age of any emiergency to fill
their c'ofers. The longer Pres
ident Wilson is in the executive
chair the more is he convinding
the American people of his wise
statesmanship, and the more is
he securing the hold Democrat
ic party has upon the people.
There is-of course, even among
Democrats, an element that
fear his policies will not be en
dorsed at the next election, but
that fear is fast dwindling away,
and we believe-he will convince
the country that his administra
tion is not only safe, and sound,
but it has done more along pro
gressive lines than any adminis
tration in a gentury.
The war news continues to be
confusing, and it is difficult to
get from the dispatches that are
given to she press anything like
deinate information, but, we
still believe the powers not en
gaged in the turmoil will yet be
able to get the ear of the war
