The Hour. The Year. The Age. We are climbing to the peak ol our hopes, our dreams, and our goal lies but a little way ahead of us. ?5 Human eyes have never seen the world as we shall see it when once we scale the summit. Human feet have never trodden that high. Human justice has never been so widely flowing as it will be wljen we come to this goal of ours. Human liberty has.never touched as many souls as it will. Human love have never been as deep nor as broad. This peak lies but a little way ahead of us. Beyond it stretches the endless valley of peace, honor, freedom, and all that makes this globe a worth-while place on which to be born, to live, and to die. But first we must scale the peak. No height upon the mountain's side is high enough. Nothing that lies beyond is ours until we have attained the peak. That peak is victory. It is decisive, final, everlasting defeat of the Htins. It is to be achieved in battle over there and in effort over here. We all must climb, every last man, woman and child of us. Those brave soldiers of ours?our best and finest boys?cannot do all our climbing. They cannot pull us up to this peak of human ambi tion if we hold back. They are fighting over there in such a hell of shell as man has never known. They go courageously, gloriously to heroic death. They come out of battle torn, crippled, blinded, shattered of body, stronger of soul. A million and a half are there. Other millions will go to strengthen the arm which is driving to its lair the Beast of Ber lin. And still more millions will "go," even as they stay here at home. They will go in spirit, in effort, in work. Without these the peak of victory, and all which that contains, would recede, further and further from us. They must climb together?the soldier over there and the worker over here. One cannot lag behind. Both have the same goal to at tain. Both will suffer in the same agony of defeat if we do not reach the peak. And they are climbing together. Workman and soldier?one fighting force, incomparable, unde featable, irresistible! That is the secret of America's succcss. That is why the United States has been able to come so rapidly and so overwhelmingly to the front when the sword of the Hun flashed threateningly near the throat of democracy. That is why the "feeble, little American army" has gTown and is continuing to grow so alarmingly strong that the despots of Potsdam quake in their boots and would give of their stolen loot to ward off the blow that is falling and cannot be turned aside. Americans are working as well as they are fighting. American labor having sent a part of itself over there to fight, is working harder, longer, more efficiently to make up the difference. It is doing better; it is increasing its load. And because we are all in the war together?worker and soldier? and in it to our last dollar, our last drop of blood, our last ounce of energy we will win! We are ncaring the peak. We will arrive, soldier and worker to gether. Then, indeed, this will be our day?the day of victory with honor and glory. Let us all try a bit harder to do a bit more that we may not falter in the great adventure upon which this nation has set out?to establish freedom, for all, forever, upon the proud summit of decisive victory, from which our eyes may behold the pleasing valley of permanent peace. The worker is fighting the Hun in mine and mill, factory and field, shop and office, in railroad yard and freight shed. He is climb ing to the peak of victory as he stands before the roaring red flame of the blast furnace; as he pours flowing metal into cannon mold; as he digs in the darkened pen far underground for the coal the industry of war must have; as he plows land, harvests crops, saws lumber, drives trucks, cuts cloth, gins cotton, fires engines, rivets ships, fills shells, as he docs anything which brings American .soldiers over there nearer the retreating trail of Hun footprints. Yes, in truth, he fights who toils. He's every inch a soldier, is the American workingman?and that includes the working woman! He fights with machine, lathe, plow handles, with whatever imple ment of war is in his hands, and he fights as courageously if that is a pneumatic rivet driver as if it were a machine gun. The fruit of his labor is as important. It is as large a factor in bringing us to the peak of victory. He is a soldier?is the worker. He has earned the right to stand hand in hand with the man in uniform, the man with a gun, and say; "We will win!" They will win. We will win. The indomitable spirit which has woven itself into our hearts and souls cannot be beaten. It cannot be stilled. It must ascend to the summit of human hopes. And that is the victory we are striving for. When this is done, as done it must be, the veterans of this war Will number within their ranks, mechanic, laborer, miner, farmer, ?ngineer, fireman, puddler, riveter, steel worker?every worker who ftelped to win. They are earning that place now. Their brothers in uniforms will be the first to give the veterans of war industries a place of honor side by side with them who fought with guns. No one better than the soldier in the trench, the sailor on the battle ship. knows how futile would be their effort, how hopeless their struggle, how sure their defeat if that strong and valiant arm of American labor were not back of them?working, striving, sustaining. It is true: The soldier in the trenches little fears the enemy as long as he knows his people back home are standing by. him heart and '' And we are standing by him! ' Every true and loyal worker in all these States is with him, for he is our boy?an American boy?and we will win with him. Whips Dad. As a general thing we are not in favor of permitting boys to administer corporal punishment to their erring fathers. But there are exceptions. There are times and fathers which bring about these exceptions. Such a time is now and such a father Bennie Felton, of Chicago, has. Bennie took his dad to the proverbial woodshed and severely chastised him. "It was needed," Bennie explained to the Polide Court judge. "Father insisted upon saying disloyal things. He said the Kaiser could lick the whole world. He wouldn't take it back and so 1 whipped him." The judge dismissed the case against Bennie. ^ The Hun takes his daily dose of defeat on the run.

It hap pens once In a while?and the an nounced Intention of Chlcaco bank ers to loan 160,000.000 to the Chin es* government, something which is said to have had the approval or our State Department, has brought down opposition from a member of the Mongolian kingdom. | Chu Su Ounn. former editor of the I Mun Key weekly of New Tork City, | Is the man who is undertaking the task of convincing American solons | that 110 money should be put Into the 1 present government of China. In let tera received yesterday by prominent j members of the House and Senate Mr. Ounn directs his lire along sever al lines. His reasons, running from "A" to "Z" Inclusively, are as fol lows: "The allied governments are at present negotiating a' Joint loan to China of 130,000.000. At the same time on* of ihe allied governments, name ly Japan. Is planning to extend secret ly a loan of 80.000.000 yen. or $40,000,000 I respectfully petition you to use your influence to prevent these loans be ing made for the following reasons: "A. The defacto government of China which now has Its headquarters ! In Peking is not a constitutional body | and any trcatlea or agreements made j with It ara Illegal and without bind ing effect "B. No valid loans can be made ! by the Government of China unless they ara Brat approved by Parlia ment." t "C?The real parliament of China waa unconstitutionally dissolved by the Peking government. The Con stitutional parliament of China re asaembied at Canton where it Is now located, and it is the only body! that can make treaties or contract loans with foreign nations. Ttaia parliament haa behind it the aouth ern provinces of China aa well as the sympathy and support of the thinking people of northern China. As a result the republican force* j of the South are marching steadily j northward with very little effective opposition. This ia due to the fact that the army of the Peking government Is fixhting only for wages and these are not forthcoming as the Peking government ia short of funds. If the loan is withheld It will shortly collapse. The great mass of the people of China are tired of its rule. It Is aiming at a military autocracy and since the alliea are lighting to overthrow the autoc racy of Germany they should not aid In establishing an autocracy in China. "D?If 'he Peking government can secure financial assistance It i will result In the prolongation of the revolutionary struggle and pre vent China from providing any ef fective assistance to the allies. "E?The allies should prevent the direct loan of J40.000.000 from Japan to the Peking government for the principle reason that Japan has made an agreement or promise to act jointly with the allies. She is aiming at complete control of Chinese finances and is using the opportunity which the war offers to eliminate all the interests of Euro pean and Americans in Asia. "She has made a secret treaty with the Peking government to overthrow the Chinese republic and restore the monarchy. If she suc ceeds she will annex China and I establish a strong Asiatic empire in the eastern hemisphere and ulti | mately include India and the I islands In the Pacific. "The Chinese people realise the danger of this pact and are pro testing daily to the Peking gov ernment against it Chinese stu dents in Japan have left their edu cational Institutions and returned to China in order to arouse the people to a realizing sense of the danger that threatens the republic. The allies should come to the sup I port of the Canton government and refrain from giving financial or I other support to the Peking gov ernment. In thia way alone can the secret Intrigue of Japan be frus trated and the republic of China made safe and secure." On the hill It was stated that some of the members felt that op j position to the loan should not come | from l ew York City because it 'might readily be believed that self ish reasons were behind the effort to prevent the loan. New York bankers, however, stated In this city yesterday that they would not re sort to this kind of opposition to a loan negotiated through tha city of i Chicago. "We will have an indirect hand in the matter, anyway." said one New York banker. "Just because It heads at Chicago is no valid reason for a fight being made against tt | by bankers of the metropolis. ? I No members of Congress were heard to suggest anything In the way of legislation that would pre vent the consumation of the loan. The fact that the State Department has approved it is taken by Con- i *ress to mean that ample Investl-1 I fif !?n was made in advance and 'that approval of the step was deemed the wisest action to take. /rZfrlw Sherman. senator de luxe from Illinois, makes a strong case out tl y F?rd when 1,e P?lnU 1 out the excessive profits made by , his concern.

PARTISANSHIP AMONG RAILMEN FORBIDDEN McAdoo Issues Threat Against Em ployes Entering Politics. Railroad administration is to be taken entirely out of politics, ac cording to a statement to railway employeg yesterday by W. G. Mc Adoo. director general of railroads. This statement is especially needed now because of the ap proaching Federal and State elec tions says the announcement. "It was a matter of common re port," says the message. "that railroads under private control were frequently used for partisan political purposes; that railroad corporations were frequently ad juncts of political machines and that even sovereign States had been at times dominated by them. "Scandals resulted from such practices, the public interest was prejudiced and hostility to railroad managements was engendered." This is to be changed under gov ernment control, according to Mr. McAdoo. Certain prohibitions for the railroad employes, which de mand the curtailment of all politi cal activity or connection, are set forth In the statement.

A LABOR DAY LESSON I guess you've often read that little piece Of Hercules, the heavy-weight of Greece, And how he beat Antaeus in a fight. Old Here, rould put Antaeus down all right. But Anty. bounced back stronger than before. "How's this?" said Hercules. "I'm getting sore, For every time this fellow hits the land He seems to gather new supplies of sand." So Hercules held his victim in the air Above his Mother Earth, and choked him there. Well, Labor is Antaeus. Let him stand, Or even fall, in contact with the land And who can beat him? Send him to the soil And Labor brings back corn and wine and oil. Given two hands to dig, a mouth to feed, And Mother Earth will satisfy his need, But put him "in the air" and Hercules Can throttle him by fast or slow degrees. And who is Hercules? Well, it's my dope, It's not the man who fills your envelope, Nor yet some fellow with a cross-barred S Called Kapital. Take another guess And say it's You-and-I and all of us who stand. Watching each other tie up idle land. Each trying 'to stick until the heavy onus Of some pne's need will make him pay our bonus. < And all the bonus paid on all the soil Comes from the blood and bones of those who toil. So, as we celebrate our Labor Day, 1 hope it's not amiss for me to say.

The Treasury ruling that army nurses captured as prisoners of war shall be deprived of their pay as long as they are in captivity has called forth vigorous protests from the heads of nursing organizations in letters made public yesterday to Surgeon Gen. Gorgas and to Comp troller of the Treasury Warwick, who made the ruling. Miss Clara D. Noyes. president of the American Nurses' Association, which is responsible, with the Red Cross, for supplying nurses to the army, says that the ruling "could not help but be destructive of (nurs ing) enrollment," and is "therefore a vital blow at the welfare of our soldiers." Mrs. Helen Hoy Greeley, counsel for the committee to secure rank for nurses, points out to Surgeon Gen. Gorgas that the ruling is "another proof of the need to clear the equiv ocal position of the army nurse by giving her recognized military rank." German Navy Equipped With Gigantic Cannon Rome.
