The Kaiser Said "Sick 'em." and the
The European war has now been in
progress three and one half months,
and with the exception of the first
week alter war was declared there has
not been a single day, not even ex
cepting Sunday, when the "slaußhter
o( the innocents" has stopt, and on
some days the number ran into the
thousands. According to the admis
sion of the belligerents the killed,
wounded and lost amount to over half
a million on each side. And all for
what. Simply to gratify the unholy
ambition of some king or kaiser. The
people had no grievance to avenge,
no war debt to settle. More than half
the seven million Belgians are on the
verge of starvation, will starve but for
the help extended by those more for
tunate, which now promises to meet
their needs. Many of their cities are
utterly destroyed, their fields ruined,
their homes gone and savings wiped
out. The Belgians were not even
parties to the quarrel of the righting
nations. Their little country hap
pened to lie between two warring na
tions and offered the easiest and most
direct way to get at each other. They
remind us ol a fighting dog that up
set a flower stand in his mad rush to
get at another dog. The instances re
corded in the war news where some
Englishman, German or Frenchman
with the blood lust in his veins, killed
a half doten men does not appeal to
us as an act of heroism, the iron cross
or other equally worthless bauble with
which they were decorated serves to
remind us that the dog instinct is not
yet bred out of all men. When the
German kaiser said "sick 'em," to his
soldiers, and pointed his finger in the
direction of France, they obeyed with
the alacrity of a well trained fighting
dogi then the French unleashed their
war dogs and said "go to 'em."
When the snarling and biting got fur
ious along come the English bull
dog, hears the noise and he sets into
the fray, closely followed by the wolf
hound from Russia, and the balance
of the world is standing around look
on. How did it start, says the small
boy «t a street dog fight. Their mas
ters said "sick 'em." Some day. let
us hope, the animal instinct will be
bred out of the peoples of Europe and
they will replace their masters with
lie B«s»ess fewil lbs Srt In
- The first effect of the war en busi
ness has passed and we are beginning
to feel the stimulous of an enormous
demand for foodstuff, clothing, shoes,
horses and many other things that the
fighting fools of Europe need. The
price of wheat is high and going higher,
indeed everything is going up. The
prospect that the war will be kept up
all winter and commence with fresh
fury in the spring points to i short crop
there. Daring peaceful times every
country in Europe sire Russia buys
foodstuff of one kind or another. Spec
ulators will take advantage of the cir
cumstances and boost prices. We will
get good prices for everything we hate
to sell. The present and future de
mand is already causing a revival in
trade ol every kind. Immense sums
of foreign money is now and will con
tinue to come to our shores for two
yean at least, even if the war ends in
a) short time, which lis improbable.
The quarter million dollars worth of se
curities unloaded on us at the begin
ning has long since been wiped out and
many millions added to it to pay for
needed supplies. The demand will
increase with every week and by the
first cl 1915 financiers predict there
will be a plethora of money in this
country seeking investment. Every
acre of land in the United States cap
able of producing food will be put in
cultivation. This will give employ
ment to idle men. Factories, found
ries, woolen mills, cotton mills, shoe
factories, and packing houses will run
full blast and overtime to supply the
demand. We will be called on to sup
ply, not only Europe but those
countries that have been looking to
Europe lot manufactured wares.
Not only will all old established
business enterprises run to full capa
city but hundreds of new openings
will be made for the employment of
men. Railroads, just now grumbling,
will be taxed to th.'irfull capacity next
year. There will be a tremendous in
dustrial revivel all over the United
States in 1915, and it will only be the
beginning. Years of prosperity and
development will follow the war.
Do Not Allow Establishment of
Dairy to Drop
A lew weeks ago there was much
talk of establishing a dairy at this
point. We have repeatedly pointed
out the benefits of such an institution
at Leavenworth and here again urge
those interested to take the question
up with the ranchers and business
men, who aie equally interested wish
the ranchers. It looks as if a dairy
might be established here with slight
effort. The dairy expert who was here
in August snid there were over two
hundied cows in the vicinity and was
assured by a number of ranchers that
the number would shortly be doubled
once it btCUM known that there was
a way of disposing of milk. Between
two and three thousand dollars go out
of this town every month for butter.
If this money remained here it would
make the circulating medium just th.it
much mere plentiful. There is no
question about a dairy proving prac
tical and profitable. We intend la
keep up the agitation until some one
establishes a dairy.

POSTAL SAVINGS BANK
DEPOSITS ARE INCREASING
Thousands of Foreigners Trust Their
Money to Uncle Sam. Government
has Nearly 400,000 Depositors
The war in Europe is proving a big
boon to postal savings in this country.
From the vorv day hostilities opened
across the seas postal-savings receipts
began to increase by leaps and bounds
and withdrawals fell off, a result quite
contrary to the predictions ol many
well-informed persons who, in their
imagination, saw lines of feverish de
positors at post-office pay windows
anxious to again return their savings
to the boot leg and body belt deposit
ories whence they came before in
trusted to Uncle Sam. But the fore
casters failed \o reckon on the abso
lute confidence of the American citi
zen, regardless of the flag that first
met his eyes, in the ability and pur
pose of the Government to carry out
its obligations, not only among the
nations of the earth, but with the
humblest citizen of our land.
Two important results have fol
bwed; thousands of people, largely of
foreign birth, accustomed to send their
savings abroad, are now patrons of our
postal-savings system; and enormous
sums of actual cash have been re
leased for commercial uses among our
own people at a time when the need
(or every available dollar is pressing.
The growth of postal savings in the
United States has been steady and
healthy and the system has filled an
important gap between the tin-can de
pository and the factory paymaster.
On July 1, when affairs were running
smoothly here and abroad and the
transmission of money across the At
lantic was safe and expeditious, there
was approximately J4i.000.000 of
;w..ii savings standing to the credit
of about 358.000 depositors. Since
then over $10,000,000 of deposits
have been added and the number of
depotfton has increased enormously.
This unprecedented gain is the more
ssriking when it is considered that the
ne; gain in the last three months is
larger than the gain for the entire fiscal
year 1914. Scores of offices have
done more postal-savings business
since the wai has been going on than
was done by them during the previous
existence of the service. The in
creases aie confined to no special lo
calities, but have been felt in every
nook and corner of the country. New
York City alone made a gain in Sep
tember of more than a million, while
Brooklyn showed a relatively big in
crease. Chicago reported a larger
gain in the past three months than for
the previous twelve months. More
than 7,000 new accounts were opened
during the period, bringing the num
ber cf tiepositors in that city up to
The unexpected increase in pos'.a'.
savings business has not only added
greatly to the general administrative
duties of the system, but has brought
up many new and interesting problems
which have called for the careful per
sonal consideration of Postmaster Gen
eral Burleson and Governor Dockery,
Third Assistant Postmaster Genera!.
But their task has been lightened some
what by the promptness of depository
batiks in furnishing; additional security
to meet the abnormal deposits. A
number of the very largest banks in
the country, which have heretofore
declined to qualify as depositories for
postal-savings lands, are now among
the eager applicants for them. .
Indications 41 Point the Same Way
The New York World of Nov. 7, coj
tained the following:
The president of one of the largest '
nation*! banks in this city said to a re- .
porter of the World:
"Within a short time, perhaps very •
earlr in the new Tear, money is going I
to be such a drug on the mark:', in
this eoantrv. and particularly in New
York, that the banks will be willing to
loan it at any price."
This prediction was based on the re
markable improvement that has takes
place in the financial situation during I
the last week, which has witnessed the
complete wiping out of the great bank
deficit built up daring the crisis follow
ing the declaration c! war in Europe,
the redaction in loan rates to a normal
basis and the collapse of foreign ex-1
