Germany Must Surrender. ??'resilient Wilson, in his note to Germany last night, said: ? ? (we) must deal with the military masters of the monarchal autocrats oi Germany now, or if it is likely to have to deal with them later in rrajard to the international obligations of the German Empire, < we) musi Jemand, not peace negotiations, but surrender. Nothing can be gained by leaving this essential thing unsaid." It was not necessary for President Wilson to sa> more than this. This paragraph in itself is quite sufficient to strip all German peace proposals ol every vcstige.of hypocrisy which has camouflaged them. The President has spoken with the utmost finality that there can be no peace ?siili autocracy except the peace that comes on the heels ot unconditional surrender. The distrust that every one telt at the German bargainings is ex pressed openlv by the President, so openly in fact that there can no longer be any question in the mind? of the American people as to how the 1'rc-ident looks upon the pseudo-reforms which the German ?,??, eminent so glibly said it had accomplished. When the President says "nothing can be gained by leaving this essential thing unsaid." he strikes the crux of the entire exchange ot* note?, and it is doubtful whether this "essential" point will ever be satisf.ic'onh negotiated with the allied governments. President Wilson's latest note to Germany comes as a relief to every \merican. Ever> uncertainty has now been removed and Amei nans ho]n' that the end of peace notes, which have led 10 no va here, lu? ? -?p?.?. \mcrica Ino?? that she .-till is at war, and since no peace can I??? negotiated with murderers we are in the war until the enemy has ?surrendered unconditionally.

The Old Gang on the Corner. 3y WILLIAM HERSCHELL in Collier's. The 'Jld Gang on the Corner! What an arrant tribe they were; .The Widow Kelly's Connie?he had always worried her! The Sc! .'.tz boys, Jake and Rudy; the parson's own. Chub Smith, "Who," sister told the neighbors, "they can't do nothin' with." Young Tony Boots, the Dago, and Scamp, the tinner's son? To them a mischief thought of was a mischief quickly done. The Old Gang on the Corner! In the arc light's friendly glow .They trooped each night till Tim the Cop came by and made them go. But all that now is ended, for the Sword of Hate was drawn_ ?The Old Gang on the Corner from its happy haunt is gone. .The street lamp idly sputters; Tim, the lonely, walks his beat, His good heart well ahunger for the Old Gang in the street. The Old Gang on the Corner! Now each loyal mother brags "Ko other neighborhood can boast as many service flags. Con Kelly's won a sergeantcy; the parson's black-sheep -on Mj? ha.l his picture printed for heroic deeds he's done. The Schultz boys, in the navy, though they yet are in their teens, "Arc mat.*- with Scamp and Tony in the chase for submarines. The Old Gang on the Corner! Yes, we've all lorgotlen now ?The Hallowe'en they calcimined MrDougall's muley cow. ?We've put aside the memories oi cream and rake thev stole When ou- church had a festival to pay tor last year's coal. All that is in the Yesterday?they're now our fighting nun_ And. God, won't we be happy ii they all come home again Haseball fana of the city will be Interested in the Nevada ?Senatorial race. Walter Johnson's papa-in-Law, Con gressman Roberts, la a candidat? for the place against preeent Senator Henderson, and will, of course, have the Republican machine behind him with all vigor.

If Miss Mar?? p drawn most potently from the Henderson force? thQ Rob erts forces will he elated and likely to see their favorite chase away with the victory. If Miss Martin, on the other hand, draws from the Roberts forces?something democratic leaders here are constrained to think ahe will do?she will likely succeed in helping Mr. Henderson make more perma nent arangements to remain here than he has hitherto been warranted in making. So fans of this district, while you are looking over the election returns on the 6th of November, and for a few mornings thereafter, don't forget to look out Nevada way and see whether the smoke king is to have joy or gloom in his home for a few days after that. The mere process of ?? changing ideas with the enemy is distressing folks of the nation to an extreme length, we think. There are phases of the interna tional situation in which not even aome of the wise men on the hill are at all \ersed, and they and the folks of the country would do well until all phases of our extremely delicate sit uation are considered by the Presi dent himself. The President linda the task not at all unlike he has expected It to be* He has been studying for months on th? very problem? he is meeting now ?and with the fullest information from every land in the world to sup plement his own inexhaustible infor mation. It seems inconceivable to think that those of only sporadir knowtedge and occasional and some time? woefully distorted information should know more than he know? about the situation, and so It would be best if we all would withhold judgment on what the President doe? until some time after he has done it. The same war that compels the Re publican members of the House and Penate to remain at "mark time? must come to an end and give the floods of partisanship an opportunity to become loosened once more. The second invitation was not needed, from what we van hear, to make them vent their spite upon the pa tient President for nil of the forced delay thev have had. P.ut it would he both the better part of discretion and patriotism to remain silent until th?' critical hours are past. More strength <?n be gath ered for our eau??* by following this course than by allowing our tongues too free play. The current issue of th*- National Republican the national organ of the politicai party after which it is ? named, leaves no room for doubt aa to where it stands on the third of tho fourteen peace bases suggested by President Wilson. For that pape- insists that the pro vision mentioned means free trade .and it proceeds to say. with much vehemence: "The removal of economic barriers'' and an "equality of trad" relations amon^ the nations." is interpreted b> free traders everywhere as meaning free trade. Yet the man who <"an't for get his "responsibility?a.? the leader of a great political party'- -u es the-? e very words and declares fur this very thing In one of his addresses re-stal ing the war aims that we are sup posed to be fighting for. Thia would mean that German goods are to be permitted to come into the country to compete with our own industries an 1 to come In free of duty. It means exactly thnt, if it means anything. Not a single word of dissent from this has been uttered In pub!)?? by a-ny l>emoer.-itic member of Congress. On the contra ry it is in ex net accord with all their previous utterances en the subject of the tariff. And ? vote for any one. of thorn means a vite for that very thing. To be consistent the man who is opposed to thia should vote for the Republican rand'date for Congress and for the Republican tan didate for senator. "One of the conditions imposed upon Rus-si.t by triumphant Germany was the removal of all ?conomie bairiers.' The exploitation of the Russian mar ket? by <?-erman traders, and the con sequent repression of Russian indus try was one of the causes of the bit terness between Germany and Ruasia that eventuated in war. Free trade is perhaps the moat fruitful cau.se of war. It enables one nation to exploit the market? of another without re straint, thereby promoting interns.? tional ill will. If the A merles ? peo ple were compelled, by ,, t ??. a t y o? pe,ace. to surrender their markets to invasion by alien productive Interest?) armed with the wes pori o? t cheap ness attained by the cheapening of the producer, it Is not unlikely that w'thui a doze ? years we wo lid be ready to go to war. if ne? e&mury to secure our economi?? independence and restore the prosperity of the [American people."

The plan is expected tn meet successfully the objection of the military authorities to the pincement of felons or di.-dem?a ri ants together with the other l'nited ; States troops. Inasmuch as it pro vides for tlie segregation ??f such persons in separate army divisions under regular army officers. If th?? pl-nn is successiful to the extent of justifying its extension to other States, it Is estimated that it will be possible to utilise the man power of more than 400,000 prisoners in the United States. The question recently arose as to whether or not ?n officer of the n.t \ is. entitled to commutation of quar ters tuid heat and licht while in terned in a neutral country either for himself or on account of dependents under the aet of April 16. 191?. ]f he has been re-quired to hire quarters for himself because none could be had in any other way. tn accordance with the provisions of the Revised Statutes he is held entitled to com mutation of quarters na "emolu ments" that "shall go on and l*e paid." if quarters have not so been acquired he Is not entitled to com mutation except by reason of de pendents. In the act of April l'S, 1918, Congress clearly intended to en t .. "beneficial statute," and quar ters or commut?t ion thereof for the designated dependents is authorized to every commissioned officer on ac tive duty without the territorial Juris diction of the l'nited States Givi ? fi Uberai construction to the words "on active duty." the Comptroller holds that distinction should be made between the status of an officer who OPHELIA'S SLATE. if p? ? ? *. ? \ .?. ... under suspension lut>. or absent without author ity, and one who does nut o su? ? n tatus.

This is no ne?v topic with any all?ger! source of advertising vi? dorn. Ever since the United States entered the world-war the doctrine of continuous advertising, especially as applied to those products whose names are ?veil known to the American public and which, therefore, ixfv? resent a considerable percentage ol good will, has been preached in many quarters. So conclusive have been some ol the presentations ot this vita' subject, and so thoroughly ??rounded are the arguments in support ot it. that the wonder is that any business concern among whose assets the element of reputation is listed can fail to see the desirability of keep ing name, reputation and good will ?live even in the face of an oversold condition, inability to purchase raw materials, transportation difficulties. fuel curtailment or any other trouble arising from war-time conditions. An encouraging sign is seen in the fact that fewer manufacturers consider advertising as mere magic by mean? of which today's sale- are stimulated. More and more of them appreciate its constructive power? the power that has given to scores of trade names a greater value thin that represented by real estate, machinery, materials and all other vi?v ? roperty. Business conditions gro?ving out ol the war have taken away troni many manufacturers their ability to make goods and their ability to se'l. In many instances, immediate markets have been destroyed. Every thing has been taken from such manufacturers except good will, and it is difficult to understand how there can be any more disposition on the part of the manufacturer to permit that good will to tie as a result of advertising inactivity than there is on the part of the government to kill such good will by not permitting the manufacturers to advertise. If there is any great degree of commercial depression as the result of discontinued advertising, it would be the fault of the advertisers themselves and not of the go\ernment. There is no apparent desire in Washington to destroy the one thing that can preserve ? business in cases where manufacturing has been forced to cease?the preserva tion of good will. And this cannot be kept alive without continued re minders and suggestion, no matter how well known the product may be. That even an article as widely distributed and as favorably known as Ivory Soap would, at the end of probably two years, seriously fed a discontinuance of advertising is as safe an assertion as we could make. We cannot expect good will to be any more permanent without effort to keep it so than anything else. It has to be renewed and sus tained just as tangible properties have to be kept up by means of con stant replacement? and repairs. The way to "carry on" in business up to the time when more or less normal conditions reign again is to keep on advertising unie** there are positively insurmountable reasons again?. A.
