GREAT BRITAIN WILL CARRY
WAR TO U. S. COAST
London, Oct. 9. Possible disagree
ment between Great Britain and the
U. S. as result of German U-boats'
depredations off the American coast
was forecast by the Daily Chronicle
today.
Counter measures taken by allies

w make it "unhealthy" for American
submarines off coast of the U. S.,
the newspaper asserted.
"The United States disagreed with
us when it admitted the Deutschland,
but the disagreement is much sharp
er when it admits a pirate craft like
the U-53 and fraught with many
more inconveniences for the Uinted
States," said the Chronicle. "What
is to prevent the U-53 being replen
ished at American pors and practi
cally using the American coast as a
base for preying on French and Brit
ish steamers?
"Obviously, if Germany is allowed
to wage such a war off the United
States coast we must take counter
measures. American trade will be
hampered, and, incidentally, the
other side of the Atlantic will become
very unhealthy, not only for German,
but for American submarines."

'HE SAYS THEY WERE MARRIED
SHE SAYS HE'S A JOKE
Out of the killing of Anton Myslin

and containing Chester Webs'ter,

Jackson blvd., and Frances Peyser,

queer story of a mixed elopement.
Webster says the car was returning
from Hammond, whether the party
had gone so he and Miss Meek could
be married. He says they were not
married then, but a few days later.
Miss Meek denies that they were
ever married and says Webster is a
"joke." The question may be settled.

WHAT WILLIAM ALLEN WHITE
THINKS OF WILSON
William Allen White or Emporia,
Kan., is one of the best known writ
ers and progressives in the U. S. Re
cently in his newspaper, the Empo
ria Gazette, White paid the following
tribute to Pres. Wilson:
"How well he (Pres. Wilson)
seems to have managed it this
whole sordid business of going to
war; how fair he has been; how pa
tient, how dignified, how infinitely
gentle and kind!
"No bluster; no threats; no snick
er of anticipation; no licking of na
tion's chops just a simple-souled,
brave, soft-hearted, hard-headed
man. It is sad enough tp go into
war of any kind at any time; but it is
less sad to go knowing that every
honorable means has been taken to
keep away from war. And this con
solation Pres. Wilson has given us by
his wise, forbearing Christian atti
tude before the provocation of a foe
mad and desperate and foolish. The
good God, who knows and watches
over all and sees all and directs all,
was in our hearts deeper than we
knew when as a nation we chose this
great, serene soul to lead us."

SHORT WORKING DAY FIRST
The eight-hour day is more im
portant than the ballot to members
of the Women's Trade Union league
as voiced in their conference yester
'day. Of course, the ladies want
both, but the shorter working day is
first
Illinois law provides for a ten-hour
day for working women. A bill for a
nine-hour day is now before the le
gislature. Their next fight, if this
bill goes through, will be for an eight
hour work day. Five states now
have this.
