Chapter V. (Continued)
Whan she had finished her story,
Dorotliy Canfield concluded something
like this: "That's what they all come
back to. after their fit of utter horror
at their life is over. It does them pood,
apparently, to talk it all out to a patient
listener. They always, always end by
saying that even what they are livinff
throuch is better than a world com
manded by the Germans . . . what
a perfectly amazing distrust that na
tion has accumulated against itself!"
They are sick of war: war weary and
i sad. Set they will fight on. The will
: to fierht is outside the individual will:
; yet it is not the will of the leaders, nor
; it is the will of the many combined
; in a common will. For the many are
tired unto death of war. But for all
that they will fight on without flinch
ing. It is the national will the wilt
deeper than the will of leaders, stronger
I than the molten will of the many in
ono purpose. It is the tradition of
! centuries: it. is the unexpressed pur
j pose, perhaps unconscious habit of an
i old, old people, united far down in the
j roots of them: not so much by race,
i for tits1 Franks are of many breeds not
i so much by industrial or geographical
! ties or even political unity, though it
'approaches that; but hound most sure
, ly by the sense of national tradition.
A people is fighting. From a thousand
villages with their primeval temples,
with their lovely cathedrals grown out
of the hearts of the race buried in the
j shadow of their spires, from the shin
ing rivers that flow through green
pastures, from soft hills rich in folk
tales of heroes, come the millions; ana
' from Paris, ever radiant in her vener
1 able vouth, come other millions who
make this fighting soul of the nation.
What if it grumbles as it fights; it will
still fight on. Of course it is sick of
war; but it will not stop. It is a spirit
that is fighting in France, the spirit of
a brave people.
We have in France a few .hundred
thousand men and will soon have a
million and more who are offering their
lives in Service. But the whole Frencn
nation is giving thus. And it is with
out hate. One finds instead of hatred
in France a feeling of deep disgust for
the C.erman and all his works. The
spirit of the French is not vicious. It
is beautiful. When the war ceases
that may subside, may retire to the
under consciousness of the people. But
it will not depart. It also will remain
eternally a part of the salvage of this
The Atonement
By the time the transgression of our
car had been sufficiently atoned for,
dusk was falling. And Henry broke
away from the gothic arches of the
trees and made for a tavern. He had
learned that one must take food in
France whore he can find it, and ten
minutes later we came upon him in
front of the inn. talking in a slow loud
voice to what was either the the inn
keeper's daughter or his pretty young
wife thus: "I said." Henry paused and
nodded his head and beat tbe thing in
with his hand: "we want some supper
de jurnay toot sweet!" She shobk
her hjpad and shrugged her shoulders
very prettily and said she could not
"say pa." And Henry laughed and went
on, still enunciating each word dis
tinctly. "Ah, don't tell us you can't
'Say pa:' say 'wee wee.' " And again
he told her "toot sweet." That was the
only part of the French language that
Henry was entirely sure of that and
"comb be-ah!" But we could not get It
through her head. So we loaded our
selves into the car and headed back for
St. Dizier, where at least they under
stood Henry's gestures, and we could
get food!
The Greatest Training Camp
Our next journey took us to the
greatest training camp in the allied part
of the world. It is not the largest
camp of course. It accommodates less
than twenty thousand soldiers. But it
is what might be called the past gradu
ate college of all training camps. Here
ten thousand men come every week
from other training camps all over the
earth, and are given intensive training.
For six days, eighteen- and twenty
hours a day, these soldiers, trained by
many months labor n other fields, are
given the Ph. P. in battle lore, and are
turned out the seventh aay after
Saturday night lecture on hate, and
shot straight up to the front. In all
France there is no more grisly place for
the weak -stomached man than this
training camp not even the front line
trenches wijl kick up his gorge more
sedulously. Yet at first sight the place
looks innocent enough. One sees a
great basin hollowed among the hills,
and in the ten thousand acre plain one
sees horsemen galloping, Roldiers run
ning, great trucks and tanks lumbering
over the field; men digging, men throw
ing hand-grenades, men clamboring
over trench walls, stumbling over cra
ter holes, men doing all the innumer
able things that are learned by those
who carry on the handicraft of the war.
But when one starts with the first
class and goes along through the day's
work with it. the deadly seriousness of
the training gets to him. The first
thing the first class does is to gather
around a sergeant major, who in a few
simple words tells his pupils how to use
the bayonet. Then they go out and
use the bayonet U3 he has taught them.
Then the pupils gather around another
sergeant major, who tells them how to
lie:, tha hulrl.irrDnailn r. 1, !-!.-
tbe butt of the gun. At lonsrth thev
are taken to a part of the ground where
some trenches are sunken in the earth.
Before the trenches are barbed wire
entanglements and deep jagged shell
craters. The imitation enemy trenches
badly bombed by barrage lie twenty
rods beyond.
Taught Fierceness
The men are taken in hand bv the i
amiable sergeant major and taught to
yell and roar, and growl and snarl, to
stimulate the most murderous passion,
and the simulation of a husky youth
in his twenties of a murderous passion
is realistic enough to make your flesh
creep; for the very simulation produces
the passion, as every wisp man's son
doth know. Then the youths are lined
up in tho trench, and numbered "one
two; one-two: one-two;" clear down
the trench. Then the order is given to
go over the top. Kvery gun rattles on
the trench-top, and the second lieuten
ant goes over, in the English papers
the list of dead begins "Second lieuten
ant, unless otherwise designated." And
in the war zone the second lieutenants
are known as "The suicides' club.'" Well,
the second lieutenants got on top. aim!
down in the trench, number one hands
his leg to number two clear down the
line: number two boosts number one
to the top. then number one lends a
hand to number two and pulls him out.
Meanwhile enemy fire Is hot. The liner
iorms in open order. The blood curd
ling yells begin and mingle in an ani
mal roar that sounds like the howl or
an onrang-ontang in the circus just he-
fore it is fed at the after-show! It is the
voice of hell.
Walking to Meet Death
Then the lino walks not runs, but
walks under machine gun and shell
fire to the enemy trench; for experience
has proven that if the men run into
that fire they will be out of breath and
probably go down in the hand-to-hand,
knee-to-knee, eye-to-eye conflict with
knife and bayonet and gun butt that
always occurs when they go over the
top to charge the enemy trench. An
they near the enemy trench the bestial
howl rises, and as -they jump into the
shell-shattered trenches the howl is
maniacal. In the trenches are canvas
bags made to represent wounded ene
mies. The first wave over the top leaves
these bags for the stretcher bearers.
But by the time the next wave comes
over, or the third wave comes, the
stretcher hearers are supposed to have
cleared the trenches of wounded ene
mies, and after that every soldier is
supposed to Jab his bayonet in every
bag in the trenches, as he is expectefl
to jab every dead body, to prevent an
enemy from playing possum and then
getting to a presumably disabled enemy
machine gun and shooting our soldier
in the back. Kvery time a student sold
ier jabs a canvas bag he snarls and
growls like a jackal, and if he misses
a bag it counts against him inJhe dav's
markings. Wave after wave comes
over, and prisoners are sent to the rear,
if there are guards to take them. If
not prisoners are killed, and one does
not waste ammunition on them. It may
be well to pause here to say that in the
gentle art of murdering the business
of taking prisoners is not elaborately
worked out. They learn that by rote,
rather than by note. The Canadians,
since two of their men were crucifien
by the Prussians, take few Prussian
prisoners. Here is a snap-back of the
film. It is the Rue di Rivoli in Tarls.
Two lanky youngsters in Canadian uni
form are talking to Henry and me.
wnat part or the states do you
Canadians come from?" we ask. They
grin and answer, "San Fancisco."
AVe: "What's this story about you
Canadians not taking any prisoners?"
They: "Oh. we take prisoners all
right, I guess!"
We: "Well, how often?"
They: "Oh, sometimes."
We: "Come on now, boys, as Cali
fornlans to Kansans. tell us the truth."
The tall one looked at the short one
for permission to tell the truth, and
got it. Then ho said:
"Well, it's like this. We go into a
trench after them damn brutes has
been playing machine guns on us.
knowing as soon as we get in they'll
surrender, but trying to kill as many of
us as they can before they give up.
Then they raise up their hands and
begin yelling, 'Kamerade. Kamerade,'
and someone says, 'Come on, fellers,
let's take this poor beggar,' and we're
about to do it when along comes a
chap and sees this devil, and up goes a
gun by the barrel, and whack it comes
down on the Boche's head, and the
feller says, 'No, damn him, he killed my
Improved Corn Flakes
He Understands the
pal,' and we polishes him off! Polishes
him off and cleans out the trench."
We: "Now, boys, does that always
happen? How often do you fellows
polish Fritzie off and clean up the
trench ?"
They (after the short one had nodded
to the' tail one): "Well, mister. I ll tell
you. It's got so it's mighty damn risky
for any Prussian to surrender to any

(Reprinted from Arizona Mining
Journal: An editorial by Robt. A.
Watkins, of Phoenix.)
While on a recent visit to Los An
geles, the editor of this journal
called upon the manager of a large
concern from whom we buy most of
-our printing supplies, and being
anxious to get the view of a dis
interested outsider, asked him what
he thought of the general business
situation in Arizona at this time. In
answer he proceeded to give us one
illustration. Some months ago he,
having become interested in a min
ing prospect of some promise in
Arizona, decided to go back east
among some of his business friends
and associates and "raise some cap
ital" to develop the same. His plan
was to go to about a dozen of his
friends and ask them to put up a
thousand dollars each along with
himself for tbe preliminary develop
ment. His plan worked out all O.
K. up to the point of telling his
story and right there it stopped as
short as though it faced the U. S.
army. And why? He was told
words to thi3 effect: That just
so long as the present state admin
istration was in the saddle, or th
same policies in effect, not one of
them would put up a nickle. The
stone wall was adamant in reality.
This man added: 'It was the first
time in my life that I ever failed to
get what I went after, and had to
back water."
Is it necessary to write out in
bold caps the moral to this little
story? It is not unlike many other
incidents that you have heard of or
experienced certainly so if you
have gone outside of Arizona to
seek capital to explore the mineral
wealth of this great country'.
The mining industry of Arizona,
comprising over three-fourths of
the taxable wealth of the state, has
had to bear the brunt of these de
terrent influences.
Constantly our present governor
has effectually curtailed the devel
opment and progress of this state
by lending his encouragement, not
alone to the honest laboring men
which within itself is commendable
but to the extreme radical ele
ment that has been trying to hide
behind the skirts of honest labor in
Arizona. ' His attitude was first
demonstrated at the big Clifton
strike, wherein many workmen
were- forced to leave the, camp afoot
and even the mine managers had
to flee the district to seek safety.
What was the verdict of the militia
upon their return from Clifton. One
of them, who is now an officer in
the aviation corps stated that
within a day or so after their ar
rival there, they knew what was ex
pected of them to look out for the
strikers to h 1 with the others.
After some two months service at
the camp, the militia was returned
home. On the station platform here
' In Phoehiv, this same chap we are
told, asked the governor w hen they
were to get pay for this time in ser
vice at Clifton. The governor's re
ply was to the effect that he did
not know, hut if he could get his
hands onto the neckfc of the
mine officials who had departed for
a neighboring city, that he would
wring the money out of them in
short order to pay the boys.
From that day to this Governor
Hunt's every' attitude has been to
the effect that whatever a striker
or would-be striker did was as a
good deed well done, whereas the
non-compromising employer should
be classed as a profiteering pa
trioteer, or along side of the alien
The fact alone that the governor
has consistently sided with the
strikers in all of Arizona's labor
troubles would not damn him as
no doubt the majority of strikes
the world over are well founded
but when it is proven tha the In
dustrial Workers of the World were
tbe chief instigators of these strikes
it's a different talc.
Not only that, but it was only
four months ago that Mr. McClus
ky, walking delegate for labor in
Arizona, made the statement before
the executive committee of the
Council of Defense that he had
"good reason to state that there
were at least 5.000 I. w. W.'s in Ari
zona at that time and that their
numbers were growing. From other
sources we have information that
leads us to believe he is right. Fur

members are being carried on at
this time in a number of camps.
Vet tho governor, knowing all
this, proceeded to deliver his
famous message to the recent legis
lature, in which he, damned the em
ployers of the state and their
friends and hugged to his bosom the
poor little I. W. W. saying if there
was such a thing in Arizona the
best way to get rid of them was to
simply ignore them maintain an
"eloquent silence."
Now, five of these men whom the
governor would have had ignored
were taken out of Arizona by tbe
government, and have just been
convicted in Chicago by a federal
jury that deliberated less than
forty minutes and given long peni
tentiary sentences. Not only the
acts of these men but the very doc
trine of the order was the cause
of these convictions.
If there were 5.000 men. in Ari
zona belonging to an order thai
espoused the doctrine that it is right
to steal or to kill, in the ordinary
meaning of the term; if they were
doing this openly, would you not be
one to come out and take a strong
stand against these men, or would
you simply be content to say: "I
am against disloyalty of all kinds
whether it is with these men or
the mine managers or those Phoe
nix men who hung that poor devil
not long ago I am against all law
breakers" and let it go at that?
Did you ever stop to think thai
the doctrine of the Industrial Work
ers of the World certainly the
preachments of its members is to
the effect that it is proper for them
to get their "rights'' any way pos
sible? Ask any man. who ever
worked around a' mining camp if
this is not true. It is a common
remark to hear, "We'll get what's
coming to us our rights or we'll
. blow these blanky-ty-blanks off the
map.' Suppose a man made that
kind of a remark about you. per
sonally, would you simply ignore
Why should any man hesitate to
declare himself openly against the
I. W. W. menace. Has not the
United States government declared
war against these industrial pir
ates? Isn't t'nele Sam's judgment
sufficiently good for a standard?
We say, yes!
And furthermore, that, while we
are not having the outlaw strikes
of a year aeo. nor the incendiary
fires we KNOW that this menace
is here simply hiding its claws.
And we purpose, and every loyal
man should so purpose, to do all
within human power to eradicate
the evil, knowing that Arizona ran
not and will not get outside capital
new capital to come in and join
forces with us so long as we coun
tenance such conditions as have
existed in the recent past.
Just now a governorship contest
is being staged in Arizona and the
question in which we are interested
is will Governor Hunt's mantle
settle complacently upon the shoul
ders of either of the aspirants
It is not so much a question of
who Governor Hunt Is backing, as
it is. which of these candidates are
backing up the ideas and policies of
the governor. It is not primarily
the man in which we are concerned,
it is the principle. We believe that
all men are inherently honest and
mean well. About the only differ
ence in men is the basic principles
that govern them; principles that
have become a part of the- man
And if it so happens that of the
several men who are candidates for
governor that only one of them has
had taught, pounded, or lmbeded
into his very being the proper rev
erence or loyalty to his country, so
that he sees that the greatest issue
in Arizona now is: "How- shall we
view the I. W. W. menace and how
shall we deal with the same." then
it is up to every good citizen to
lend his support to that man.
There is an old doctrine which is
as old as the hills no man can
serve two masters, or two prin
ciples. One is either for a thing or
is against it. Are we for I. W. W
ism or are we not?
Fred Sutter has the backbone to
come out and take a MAN'S stand
against the I. W. W. The other
democratic candidates either have
not the nerve to no do else they ore
in sympathy with the Hunt policies
of fostering this element. Adv.
