Drafted Men a llappy \*%i
Any one who thinks that America'?
conicripted men are point? around with
long faces should have watched the tol

cheered patriotic speeches with a vim,
sang the national anthems with gusto,
and showed by their holiday attitude
that they were glad to he summoned to
serve in the army of 1'ncle Sam.
Irwin Kurtz, the chairman of the
local board, explained that hi? exemp?
tion district was the first in New York
to have its full quota certified by the
district board. With the quota fixed at
163, 130 men in the district waived ex?
emption. Though the quota of hi* dis?
trict is only IIS, he said, more than
200 have already been certified.
The honored guests were still civil?
ians, waiting to be sent to camp at Yap
?Utah to don their soldiers' uniforms.
But the note of khaki was not lacking.

At the session of the Veterans lield

gated the report, that B>:-.op Greer had
'?sued such an order in May. He sai ?i
he htvl learned that the Bishop was out
of the city, but a. man at the cathedral
who bar! de crirei himself as the CO?
rate had declared that it was a fact
i that the Bishop had issued the order,
because "the playing of the anthem
crea'ed a sentiment for war. to which
the Bishop is opposed." Acting on the
repart of Mr. Voorsanger, the Foreign
War Veterans sent the following tele?
gram to Bishop Grer-r !a?t night:
"This organization, consisting of war
service veterans, in convention arsem

of the Foreign War Veterans, declared
that he felt this wag no time for any <
one to throw cold water on patriotism.!
"When so many men are taking up |
arms in defence of their country," he ,
said, "It does not become Bishop Greer
or any one else to ?tifie th? patriotic
impulse which 'The Star-Spangled Ban?

Addrets: The Ad-Vitor, The Tribune, New York.
THE following editorial appeared in the July Issue of The Dl-ut^
Recently we sent a letter to our subscriber? stating that ?n Mtia
not continue to carry these 10-cent-per-year ?ubscriptioni, but *<>j?i
either refund the balance of the 10 cents or give s 8-year "ubicnpi,?
and the two superb de luxe supplements for $1. We were quite cur??,
to learn the CHARACTER of our subscribers, who having rtWly,f
from us ea?-h month more than they had paid for for a ?hol? y??'
?ret* now asked to pay a fair price for The Review, it a prie? ?3
about one-tenth of what any ?imilsr journal has ever before beer, tell
for. We feel very certain that the American public is so f??ir. hotaett
and just, that not one person in a thousand would take The R?r,?,
for months at 10 cents per year and then refuse to return the compl?.
ment by paying s fsir price for it.
We are certainly p!ea?ed to have detected and to refund tr? ia

Before the advertisements of this special offer were accepted fort?K.
?ication in The Tribune, they were carefully considered. Every tr.fai
of good faith was priven, the reasons for the offer were explained, u?.
seamed obvious that the subscribers could lose nothing at ten centj
year for an illustrated magazine. The special rate was offered in ?!
effort to obtain a million subscribers. It was never supposed that tit,
firm could provide it at anything but a loss, as far as the suba-np?e?
? went, which makes the altogether disingenuous editorial the more 22
prehensible. Making their own failure to carry out their adveitiaj
promise the occasion for a petty attack on the character of their igk.
scribfrs verges on the farcical.
To terminate, all current subscriptions unless they are rer.ewt*?*] it
greatly increased rate is certainly a highhanded piece of flimflam, aiK?tk
adding in?ult to injury to sneer at those who raise their voice? in prtj*?-?
The offer to refund the balance of the ten cent subscription price n hcii-?,
lous, as the amount is trifling and the postage on the refund rsqasiktvS
in some cases, be as great as the refund itself.
The Tribune offers its apologies and will be gl?.?l to refund the or*?
of subscription and the postage both ways to any one who was lurad iaa
subscribing through The Tribune advertisements.
'T'll 15" morning, passing the Riker-Hegeman ?tore at Bre?dwi?
? and Eighty-sixth Street, I was attracted by a window til'?'
with drugs, etc., with attractive price cardi attach#d One ?hit intir
ested me was a pint bottle of denatured alcohol, with a card retdinf:
"Pint bottle of denatured alcohol, 20c." [ wer.? in and aiked the c!?rt
for a pint, which he wrapped, then ran.? up the amount and said to??,
"Twenty-?ve cent?." I told him the sum?- thing vas advert tti in th?
w-indow for 20 cents. He said he could not sell it at that price. S?>
I bought it at L'.S een's. It's a ?mall thing, but it ?eems to me that th?
mistrust a transaction like this breeds cannot be measur?d by th?
nickel in question. WILLIAM J. WEBER.
We sent this complaint to the Louis K. Liggett Company, md the?
replied to Mr. Weber direct, explaining that the price had been raisaf-j
the day he had purchased the alcohol, but unfortunately the sign had be?
left in the window. In their letter to Mr. Weber the Liggett Cempirj
"Our regret is, however, that you did not see the ?tor? miniyr,
or. in his absence, the assistant mar iger in chnrg* ai the Bitter
would have been adjusted on the spit end you *.*. osld hin found no
occasion ta write to The Ad-Visor, or. in fact, to appeal to Mij or?
outside the store. . . . We are very grateful to Toi Ka-Vaiei fot
having given us the ..pporturity both to adjust the ma'*ar vitnyou an?!
to do what we ,-an to put oiirselvs right in your eyes. We only regret
that you did not give us the oprortuni'y yourself."
And in an equally courteous spirit Mr. Wt-bor replied:
"I '"eel that I shoul 1 have given you an oppottaaitf to explain
matter? before going to The New York Tribune. Odd as ?t m?y ?eera.
this did not occur to me."
That's the lesson we're constantly trying to get over?first give fe
merchant himself a chance to adjust your complaint. Then if he fails
or refuses, come to us. It's not that we aren't perfectly willing to a.1
as a clearing house for complaint?, but it's a question of justice to fe
dealer. We only expect to help the public untie the ham knots that reioit
from a tangle in shopping. Th?* slipknots they will find can usuallybi
undone quite simply by the merchant himself.
