Indiana, you know, Is up North. A few years ago in Now York city a police officer blred u gang of tAbgs to assassinate a famous gambler wbo breatenod to expose the police Heu tenant's grafting. New York city, yon know, is up North. Three or four years ago a negro In Illinois engaged in u fight with a policeman and shot him, the negro being wounded ulso. A mob broke Into Hie hospital where the negro was curried for treatment and dragged htm from his bed and lynched him. Illinois, you know, is among 'those states we call Northern. Many more shell things have hap pened in the North within our mem ory, but we have enumerated enough to serve our purpose at this time. So far as we know, no southern newspaper of uny standing has con demned the citizenship of the entire North for the assassination of the minister. We haven't lr.'ard of any southern paper denouncing the entire North for the murder of the gambler in New York city. Wo don't know of any Southern newspaper lambasKlng the entire North for the lynching of the negro who wounded the police man. Borne days ago a handful of mls gil'ded men?said to have numbered twenty-flvo?took a "life termer" from tho state prison In Georgia and lynch ed him. Tho press or the Nor'th and particularly the Chicago Tribune? which has a copyrighted slogan read ing "The World's Greatest News paper"?bitterly denounced the EN TIRE South for the outrage commit ted by two dozen men In one section of 'the state of Georgia. The Chicago Tribune, perhaps denounced tho South more bitterly than any of the other papers. The whole section was in dicted for tho crime in the most scathing arraignment imaginable. In reply to rr.eso oittacks, and par ticularly the one by the Chicago Trib une, a torrent of letters of protest from people in all sections of the United States hare gone ito the editor ial rooms of the northern newBpap ors. They are letters protesting against the tone of the criticism and. the utter unfairness of It, that is, the condemning of the. entire South be cause of the acts of but twonty-live men In one remote tittle section of one state. Many of the letters are masterpieces, real literature. The smug, self-righteous editors? and particularly the editor of the Chicago Tribune?probably have rea lised ere this that the .South lank so ignorant after all, as southerners have shown these editpeg tkat they can read and : 'jr.'i theyl can write, and produce writing with a punch to It. This is In an way a defense of the lynching of Frank. That act can never be Justified. But It is to show that it Is a case of "whose ox is gored" with our northern quill artists when they set out to. chastise the trampling under foot of the law.

The day after the sinking of the Arabic, a message of advice \nd warn ing was telegraphed to President Wil son by representatives of an organi sation calling Itself "The Friends of Peace." Fearing that he might suc cumb to the war fever, they deorae'i it wise to call his alttenti. >n to "tue mandatory provisions of the constitu tion of the United States." The founders of the constitution, they explained, mcanft to separate "kingly pow>r" from the presidency. "The most dangerous of kingly pre rogatives," they further explained, "is that of declaring war," for which ac tion authority war, delegated to con gress. ' Then came the meat of the cocoanut. "Without question,'' the message continued, "the issue of manifestoes nrhtch put the country In the position of being obliged to declare war la order to back up our declaration are direct assumptions of the kingly pow er so distinctly forbidden In the con stitution and so expressly committed to congres* and to congress alone."' Tho Friends of Peace therefore warned the president against "all ac tion calculated to involve us in war." This message reveals not only im pudence but ignorance. As the New York Times remarked the other day, 'President Wilson Is for the time be ing the sole judge of the measures to be taken concerning the sinking of the Arabic and the continuel refusal ot the German government to comply wiili our representations about the de struction of the Lusitanla." It Ik an true today as it was in Washington'" administration, when Thomas Jefferson found it necessary to impreas the fact on the French minister, that from the president alone "forelxn nations or their agents are to learn what is or has been the will of the nation." Every diploma tic note aent to Germany has repre sented not "kingly power" but Ameri can constitutionalism. If che conse quenco of those notes, or of others to follow them, or of uctlon entailed by them, is war, still the pr< sjdent will not have exceeded his lawful powers. The presdeut has power to recall ambussadors at will, and to dismiss the ambassadors of foreign powern. Congress thus far has nothing to do with our relations with Germany. If the president sees fit to sever diplo matic relations, H in none of the busi ness of congress. Whether he shall call congress In special se??'.on before Its regular time for assembling rents with the presi dent alone, if the nation were at tacked, he could use army and navy without question. The only limftatlon of hia authority In this direction is that if the United States la to make an actual declaration of war, or if money la to be voted for a war, con gress must be summoned for that pur pose. And the verv fact that the president Is In no haste to convene congress Is In itself pretty good evidence that he has no intention of prevokiug war and no present fear that war will be forc ed on us. PROFESSORS' WAB SYMPATHIES. There Is unusual significance In a poll taken by an eastern university professor of Iiis professional breth ren throughout the country showing the nature of their war sympathies. Professors are not necessarily repre sentative Americans. But they are presumably better qualified to sit in judgment on the various belligerents than any other class of Americans. They are exceptionally intelligent and well educated, they have cultivated a Judicial habit of mind, and they have excellent facilities for getting at the facts. The professors whose views were obtained numbered i/fire than 6,000. They wero scattered through 44 Im portant institutions In all sections of the country, with about 76,000 stu dents. The smallness of the pro-German minority was surprising. In the "gen eral institutions" one professor out of every fifteen was pro-German. In the theological schools or out of seven teen was pro-German. In the law colleges only about one out of 49 was pro-German. In other professional schools the proportion was about the same aa In the - general institutions, one In fifteen. The average pro-Ger man representation in all of them to- . gother seems to have been about 6 per ' cont Thia percentage is obviously lower than the German-American percen tage of our population, and apparently lower than the German-American per centage among the professors them selves. Tt should be remembered, too, that a very large proportion of these have studied In Germany, and so are presumably accessible to the German spirit, and most of them read the German language. Their reading is wide and cosmopolitan. They sub scribe to German periodicals or have access to such periodicals in their college libraries. And their reading and reflection have led nearly all of them to aide with the Alllea. Thla poll, moreover, was completed before the sinking of the LUBitanla, Prof. J. J. McCook, who is responsible for It. says that he knows personally of aevoral professors, previously pro German, who have changed their at titude because of that act and the train of events that have followed. It aeems fair to Infer that not more than 4 per (?nt of these intellectual leaders ni the nation would give Ger many their approval today. It wo.ijd be extremely Interesting to have a similar poll of Americana of all classes and nationalities, es pecially In view of the boasts that some pro-German leaders have made of the political influence they can bring to bear. If the people follow ed the professors, there wouldn't be l.ooo.ooo pro-German votes in the cow.try. MOT CLIMATE BUT JEN. The Des Moines Register, published la a section that makes no special meteorological pretensions, declares flatly and categorically that "the as sumption that the Pacific Coast is hutlt up on climate is a mistaken raie." "The Pacific Coast is built np on enterprise." says the Register, "on ( pure, unadulterated American grit and ambition." Ah a iualter of fact, remarks this authority, there are all sorts of cli mate in that long stretch of coant land. It isn't all equally good, and rertainly nobody could be suited with h all. Some people, perhaps, wouldn't like anv gurt of it. And yet, the resi dents of every part of that great sec tion are absolutely convinced of the surpassing merits of their local cli mate. Why? Not so much because of the climate as because of the men. The aspiring and enthusiastic settlors of "the last frontier" could capitalize any climate. It would be the same if the coast states ran clear .to tho Arctie Circle and the Tropic of Cancer. "Tho fact is," -the Register truly says, "tho great movements of the world have never been dominated by climate. Cold and inhospitable shores have more often won the hardy ad venturer. The great cities, the great industries, the great movements in history, have not been climatic. Cali fornia is not climate, nor Oregon, nor Washington, nor Alaska," any more Than Massachusetts. If climate were the chief factor in progress und pros perity, the Mexican plateau would he the seat of a civilization us great as that of our own Far West. Of course, the Coast ?tatea really have the climate?you couldn't pry that idea out of a Coast resident with tho whole world's weather records for a crowbar?but they also have a soil fertile beyond the; dreams of the early pioneers of the I eastern states; and what is more Impartant, tlwy lmvcj men with "the right 4>rt of mettle in | them." A fellow writing to the Walterborol Press and Standard during a contro versy with tho editor en the subject of I prohibition called Editor W. W. Smoak a "Bllm-slded, narrowUninded. idiotic, | educated fool." Otherwise, the cor respondent probably \ thinks Bro.

However he must bt mistaken, for this Is an extreme^ large shoe. It Is made of wood and is of the black variety. It is not ca-[ actly like tho ones worn by the Hoi' landers although It is carved ont of wood. The shoe may bo seen placed on the top of an Iron pole in front of Thompson's shoe store. Mr. Fred H.
