A decree of Lenine and his associates, dated December 18, 1917, provides a Revolutionary Tribunal to take care of the Russian press. The first three paragraphs of this decree are as follows: 1 Under the Revolutionary Tribunal is created a Revo lutionary Tribunal of the Press. xThis tribunal will have >1 risdiction of crimes and offenses against the people committed by means of the press. . 2. Crimes and offenses by means of the press are the publication and circulation of any false or perverted reports and information about events of public life, insofar as "ley constitute an attempt upon the rights and interests of the t> revolutionary people. . . , 3. The Revolutionary Tribunal of the Press consists ot three members elected for a period not longer than three months by the Soviet of workmen's, soldiers aod peasants deputies. These members are charged with the conduct of the preliminary investigation as well as the trial of the case. There is no jury trial of the charges brought under this decree, and the decisions of the Revolutionary Tribunal are final and not tubjet to appeal. In the July 5 (1918) isiue of Pravda, the Bolshevist organ of Lenine (so admitted by Max Eastman), the policy of the Bolshevist leaders is stated as follows: The press is a most dangerous weapon in the hands of our enemies. We will tear it from them, we will reduce it to impotence. It is the moment for us to prepare battle. We will be inflexible in our defense of the rights of the exploited. The struggle will be decisive. We are going to smite the journals with fines, to shut them up, to arrest the editors and hold theiu as hostage*. ' The suppression oi the paper Mir gives further light on the atti tude of the Bolshevists toward the press. The Bolshevist organ, lzvestia, of October 17, 1918, published the following announcement: In accordance with the decision published in the lzvestia on the J7tli oi July, Xo. IJ9, the Press Department granted permits to issue to periodical publications which accepted the Soviet platiorm. When granting permission the Press De partment took into consideration the available supplies qS paper, whether the population was in need of the proposed periodical publication, and also the necessity of providing em ployment for printers and pressmen. Thus permission was granted to issue the paper Mir, especially in view of the pub lisher's declaration that the paper was infended to propagate pacifiist ideas. At the present moment the requirements of the population of the Federal Socialist Republic for means of dailv information are adequately met by the Soviet publica tions; employment for those engaged in journalistic work is secured in the Soviet papers; a paper crisis is approaching. The Press Department, therefore, considers it impossible to permit the further publication oi the Mir and has decided to suppress this paper forever. As "freedom of speech" means freedom to praise the Bolshevist leaders, so "freedom of the press" means freedom to issue "periodical publications which accept the Soviet platform. Good Time as Any to Buy. oi us have been waiting, since the news camc Noxeniber ..II of the cessation of the world madness, for prices to drop; and _"they haven't dropped. ?? We have been prying around a bit for our own satisfaction and we have discovered that there is every likelihood that prices will be higher before they are lower. ' We doubt, indeed, if prices generally will be lower in this gen eration. And we don't care whether you mean the price of a house, of a watch, of a pork chop, or of a spring suit. We have about concluded that what we need, and have the money to pay for, we will buy; just as we did before the war. If you are going to build a house, or a chicken coop, you will not save any money by waiting; not if you wait for five years. Labor, transportation, and cost ot raw materials establish prices. Labor is not going to tolerate any cut in wages, of consequence. And labor, the world over, is in a position today to get justice. The cost of raw material, of foodstuffs, or fuel, and minerals will not be materially lessened. The cost of transportation is more likely to increase than to be diminished. < Where is your scale of lower prices coming from? From nowhere, unless every trade indication is false. The wise men are going ahead on the new basis, and doing busi ness. The saoner we all quit hanging back, waiting for the impossible, the sooner will the trade volume increase to the point where some slight decrease in business costs may be achieved; the steady flow of business is the only possible chance for even slightly lessened prices. We must be clothed and fed and housed and amused; to the ex tent of our needs and ability let us proceed as we did in the peaceful years. Hanging back on the halter and waiting for the green pas tures to march to our nose bags will never feed us. The Huns who sunk their surrendered ships at Scapa Flow gave jdence of bow thoroughly we can trust Germany in the league. * Wilson professes a love for labor, but labor retorts that his irleson can speak louder than words. When the meek inherit a fortune, they soon learn to speak of the lower class and impudence of servants. Uncle Sam has a third of the world's gold, half of the world's coal, and an even greater proportion of its common honesty. Governments having refused to abolish conscription, the chair will now hear from cannon fodder. If pur statesmen can't devise a way to keep out Hun dyes, they should turn the job over to some school boy. > Critics of Attorney General Palmer are embarrassed by the sym pathy and good will of Berlin. 1 Aad now there is peace everywhere, except in Europe, Asia, Africa sad the Americas. Getting in the hall of fame doesn't interest a statesman as much as staying on the payroll. Slumber Seng. Sleep; and my song shall build about \our bed A Paradise of dimness. You shall feel The folding of tired wings; and peace will dwell Throned in your silence; and one hour shall hold Summer ana midnight and immensity Lulled to forgetfulness. For, where you dream. The stately gloom of foliage shall embower * V'our slumbering thought with tapestries of blue, And there shall be no memory of the sky, Nor sunlight with its cruelty of swords. But, to your soul that sinks from deep^to deep Through drowned and glimmering color, time shall be Only rhythmic swaying; and your breath; Aim roses in the darkness, and my love. -SIEGFRIED SASSOON in the Yale Review.

Reminder of Old time Benevolence. Perched on a grassy terrace with flower beds at ia*5 Wisconsin avenue, Georgetown, in a two-story and gable frame dwelling, and over its door is a sign bearing the legend, "Aged Woman'* Home." Attracted by this oasis of quiet on one of the principal business thoroughfares of the West End, with its bustle and noises, I sought admission to the place. 1 was greeted at tbe door by a venerable woman with a kindly smile. She said the institution had been organised many years ago by a society of benevolent women of Georgetown to provide a home for the gentlewomen of the town who by reason of age and infirmities are no longer able to buffet in the battle of life. There are about a dozen of these aged women in the building, and as one of them expressed it: "This is the only home'we know now." In rear of the house is a large yard fenced it* from the sins and troubles of life in which the "guests" while away their time in rockers or cultivating the few flowers that grow there. Once in a while a band of young folks visit the home and ?ive a sacred con cert, or distribute ice cream to the venerable derelicts who are float ing on the river of time out into the great ocean of eternity. Made the Diplomat Laugh. Attracted by the laughter of an odd-looking man in Lafayette Park. I entered the inclosure to discover the cause of his hilarity. He was a diplomat representing one of the smaller countries In the Far East a bystander said, and was accompanied by two children He stood in rear of the equestrian statue of Gen. JACKSON, and was pointing to it between his outbursts of mirth, and gesticulating for the benefit of the little ones. 1 wondered what could he so funny about the bronze representation of "Old Hickory," when the stranger exclaimed: "Ah, see. Dere dey come, ze leetle an' ze beeg, Ha, ha. ha." I followed the direction of his finger and there was a mother sparrow with several smaller ones coming out of the tail of Gen. Jackson's horse. The mother bird was making desperate efforts to launch her wee aeroplanes into the air as a first lesson in flying. The diplomat regarded the whole performance as excruciatingly funny as he continued his boisterous laughter, and as I departed I heard him say: - "I vonder dey no tickle ze tail of ze ho?s." Veterans of Foreign Wars Booming. In connection with the foregoing I am informed that the Vet erans of Foreign Wars,' an organization that was launched soon af ter the war with Spain, has formed a large and influential branch in this city. .

Its membership includes men who served in the Spanish-American war, the recent invasion^ of Mexico, the insur rection in the Philippines, the China relief expedition, the affairs in Santo Domingo, etc., and the world war.
