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?.?.

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
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.

and essaying the tremendous task of
defeating one or the other of the of
fending males. G pon the class of her
vote will depend In aome measure
whether Walter has his wife"? folks
In the city for six years or whether
she will have to return tn Nevada
when ?he wishes to vtftit them. 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
"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."

by institutional officers under the'
supervision of Uniteti St-it*-s a rmy
officers. 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 \

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

designated dependents is authorized
to every commissioned officer on ac

W'hv Advertisinsr Should "<*"urr\ On.
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.
