TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 21, IMS The first farmer was the first man, and all historic nobility rests upon the possession and use of land. Emerson. The Saving of Hawker No other news could have been so gratifying to the whole world as that which came on Sunday after noon that Hawker and Grieve were "till alive. AVe would have liked to hoar that the peace treaty had been Signed, that the debris of the war hal all been rerrovfd But that would not have been such bi3 news as the story of the snatching of these trans Atlantic aviators from the bony claws of death. They had been given Jp as lost; there was not a sc-emms chance in a thousand that they would sur vive. The path they too' was hundreds of miles from any lane of the ocean traveled by ships. It would be by the merest accident that any vessel would be in that part of the world, but that accident oc curred. A small ship wanciered into those untraveled waters in the middle of the North Atlantic to the very point where its presence was required. The. mishap which brought the aviators down was one of which no account had been taken. There were many things which might happen to a motor, but that one. an interference with the cooling system, was so unlikely that it could not have been given thought amid the consideration of much more likely unfortunate contingencies. That only makes more plain the enormous task' which these men undertook and which all men must undertake w ho attempt the overseas Tight. The ma chinery must be perfect before there can be a rea sonable hope of success. And. no machine ever jet built by human hand and brain was perfect. We may predict that this episode and the long delayed journey oC the N-C's over an almost ridicu lously safe path will for the moment, at least, dam pen the enthusiasm of thosie who have believed that we were on the eve of regular aerial communication with Europe. Waiting on Germany Hard as the peace terms may se.:m to the Ger mans, the latter cannot complain that: they have not been given plenty of time to kick against them- They were allowed a week of grace for their acceptance or rejection of them and they have inflicted thirteen counter-proposals upon the allies without, we may admit, strong probability that the original terms would, be. essentially modified. The allies could not very well modify them. The terms have received the endorsement of practically the whole world. .They constitute the only rart of the peace treaty which has not been criticized outside of Germany and any material modification of the terms, we are sure, would provoke criticism. In this country it would strengthen the hands of those who ire disposed to oppose the treaty on other grounds. There is no objection, though, to giving the Germans plenty of time. Such a course was assured in the speech of Premier Clemenceau when the terms were handed over. He then said: "You will be given every facility to examine these conditions and the time necessary for it. Everything will be done with the courtesy which is the privilege of civilized nations." From the very beginning, before; the Germans had time to give tho terms full consideration thera was a bold declaration from Berlin that Germany (oold not and would not sign the treaty as it stood. Germany relied upon the president's "fourteen points" in justification of its informally announced position. Assuming that there will be no material modifi cation of the terms, the question is asked. What will happen if Germany finally and definitely refuses to sign? No human being can now answer that question in detail. General Foeh is said to be ready to move against Germany. His invasion would probably be a bloodless and unresisted one, but that could not make Germany sign. The occupation would be con tinued during Germany's period of obstinacy- The most effective step that would probably be taken would be the continued and increased enforce ment of the economic blockade and thus an applica tion of a pressure which Germany could not long resist. It is highly improbable that there would be a new fiaming out of war. That would oe the costliest folly on the part of Germany. The German leaders, we imagine, know that their protests are in vain; that there will bs no modifica tion and that ultimately Germany must sign. We rather think that they are maneuvering,' not in the hope of securing softer terms, but toward a point at which it will be made I lain to every German that nothing had been left undone that could be done to escape the harsh terms. " This Week's Campaign "A man may be down but he's never out." This slogan of the Salvation Army expresses the true American spirit. But it is bigger and broader and finer than that. It is the essence of Christianity. It is. more than all creeds. It is humanity itself . A little awed still by t'le abrupt termination of the war, we are all standing closer together, reaching out for hands we never clasped before. These are great days in the history cf humanity. It is going to be a kinder" and juster world than the world of yesterday. We are going to think a lot more of the other fellow han we formerly did. Not long ago Meredith Nicholson, the American novelist wrote: "The other fellow's need is what brought the Salvation Army into existence. But the great-heartedness and the love for dealing with t'le fallen, the erring and the inmlde that d.Miuguightd the Sulvatiou Army in times of peace found a new demonstration in the mightiest of wars. "On the firing line in France and anywhere that the battle raged, the Salvation Army men and lassies kept step with the fighting men. Pies were baked behind and in front of barrages. Shells jarred, but did not overturn the doguhnut kettles and when such disasters happened the doughnut girls re-established operations immediately on the same spot, unmindful of danger, and at home they are equally brave on the firing line of poverty and discouragement. The Salvation Army is seeking help in a national cam paign for 813,000,000 to finance work in this country. Part of the money is to be used for buildings to pro vide for needed expansion." A small part of this amount has been apportioned to Arizona, but it is very small in comparison with other allotments for war work purposes in the past.. It ought to be raised promptly and cheerfully when we consider what the Salvation Army has done before and during the war, and how little tha army has asked for help in the past. The national democratic party, we are informed,, is making preparation for the 1920 campaign. We are glad to learn this. AVe hope it will be a close and exciting campaign something Jo stir the sluggish blood. We need it after two years of inactivity with nothing but a world war to make life worth living. Nothing we can offer in the way of advice to make the campaign lively will be withheld. We would, therefore, suggest as the first thing to be done by the democrats the ditching of National Chairman Homer S- Cummings. He will make a farce of it if he is allowed to remain. We have had enough farces to last awhile. As a matter of course, those who will or want to contribute material or labor to the county road eystem will look upon that 84,000,000 bond issue as a luscious juicy melon. But we think that they will find the guardians of it so careful of its distribution that no body will get a bigger share of it than actually belongs to him. Mount Clemens, Michigan, is famous for having afforded relief to thousands who have gone there for the waters, where they were purged of ailments of one kind or another. Will Mr. Henry Ford also be a beneficiary of a bTief sojourn at this famed health resort? UNLIMITED CREDIT TO INDIANS One of the most distinctive reatures of the Hudson Bay company its its cultivation of the Spartan virtue of truth upon the part of its employes in dealing with th Indians. No misrepresentation is permitted for the purpose of effecting sales in that service or for any other purpose, and any infraction of the rule is promptly met with summary discharge. This money-making corporation thoroughly be lieves, and its long experience fully demonstrates, that the Indian of the north woods is not only indus trious, but honest. Upon this theory, an Indian comes into a trading post early in August or September without a cent. He has no furs to sell, but he has many needs to supply. He requires flour, tea, sugar, bacon, a new gun, powder, shot and bullets, traps and many other . things to last him for eight months. He has no money, but he has honesty and skill, so he is furnished with all he desires. The company gi'es him credit on its books for supplies aggregating from $200 to $500 and the Indian, with loaded canoe, departs into the forests to his hunting grounds three hundred or four hundred miles distant. The trader loses no sleep, for he knows that when June has thawed out the ice of the lakes and streams" the canoes will return bearing their valuable furs, and he will then balance accounts with, his former debtors, who have returned to discharge their debts and to receive credit for the additional furs they have brought to the trader. One summer a post trader was asked about the frs quency of bad accounts. He replied that he had never had a bad account; that it sometimes happened thai an Indian was unable to mrJse full payment, but in such cases the payment was simply postponed until he had a more successful hunt. The only event whfch prevents an Indian from paying is his death. GLORY He dreamed of glory through his boyhood years; Thousands of lancers in the morning light Charging behind him with tumultuous might A thundering cataract of cavaliers. He dreamed of glory. Silver swords and spears; Banners of gold and purple, and the bright Meadows of waving hats to left and right; His tall plumes tossing in a gale of cheers. He dreamed of glory; but he dreams no more. Glory has made him her ambassador, And there, among the rotten ripe Corpses that snuggle in their beds of blood, He stands, unconquerable, knee deep in mud. And fumbles for a match to light his pipe. , Bartlett Adarnson. CAPITAL GIRL WINS SUCCESS AS LAWYER f&MJ ft I ( ' ) J ' -7 V 1IU - 3.1 fKiri"1" latin. - - Miss Margaret Winficld Stewart. Miss Margaret Winfield, daughtei of Ethelbert Stewart of the Depart ment of Labor at Washington, was admitted recently to practice before the supreme court of the United States. Miss Stewart is a graduate of the Washington College of Law and before entering the law school she worked in connection with tha juvenile court in Chicago. Copyrighted 1Q19 kr 1 I Let Go' My Dearest Illusion and Mourn That I Am a Woman It was not a single skeleton which I had discovered in Dr. Certeis' closet it was a whole family of skeletons. The small room was lined from floor to ceiling with neat drawers. I opened a dozen of them and my conscience, numbed by my suspicions, did not re proach me. Each discovery seemed to me like a new indictment against Certeis. Rath er than believe the story which those closet drawers revealed, I would have been glad to watch the whole splendid mansion burn to the ground. The contents of that closet would have made a choice collection of mas querade costumes. Each drawer con tained a complete disguise, perfect from wig to shoes. The man who pos sessed the things might impersonate at his pleasure an army officer, a pros perous sport, an ensign of the navy, a priest, a foreign diplomate, a chauf fuer, a down-and-out actor or a ban ana peddler! I was appalled as I tried to grasp the meaning of what I saw. It linked up with the bolshevik propaganda in Certeis' office files. It explained all those shabby scrawled envelopes. It accounted for Certeis' power over the U-boat crew. It proved the purnose of the explosives in. the cellars in the sea-cliff. My mind raced through the mischances of the year and I came at last to the most heart-breaking of them all the accidental death of the Belgian girl. "Oh, Eloise! Eloise! Tou told the truth! And we thought you crazy! He is he is a German spy. And yet I didn't hate him. I couldn't at once. I closed the drawers slowly, still hoping to hit upon some honorable explanation of their con tents. In the last drawer I caught a glimpse of a pretty wavy wig. Scarcely know ing why but planning, perhaps, to keep it aa evidence of what I had seen, I H CONGRESS ILL' AS IS NEVER HESTIE1TE' DONE BEFORE drew the wig out and tucked it into the pocket of my cloak. The staring lenses in the diver's hel met seemed to leer at me! I almost shrieked as my fingers touched the clammy surface of a rubberized sleeve. I forgot all about the bag I had come for. I turned and left the closet with a sob in my throat, and as I snapped the lock, I thought that, verily, I had passed through a real chamber of Bluebeard. I had entered that closet a trusting girt. I had come forth a' woman disillusioned forever! For months I had clung, in spite of suspicions and in spite of evidence, to my faith in Hamilton Certeis' honor. I had reasoned in the way of my sex. Certeis was the mo:i accomplished man I had ever seen! No other man 1 had ever been quite so nice to me. Bob, even when he loved me, wasn't always nice. Often he had been very incon siderate. Certeis never failed to treat me like' what he had called me just before he went away Queen of his Heart, And now my own picture on the table at the head of his bed mocked me with its smile as I passed. I rushed from the room. Firemen were opening the hall windows; the flames had been put out. Certeis' servants returned from lhe wedding, all as excited as bees smoked out of a hive. "Wire to Dr. Certeis in Chicago," was my first order and my next, "Set a watch over the wrecked office win." I crept to my room and dismissed the maid who was growing too voluble over both the wedding and the fire. When she had gone, I threw myself cn the bed and sobbed in utter weakness, and repeated th sad wish which a thousand other disillusioned women have made: "I'm so tired-Mso tired of being a woman! I'm so tired of love and of forgetting! I wish I were a little girl I wish I could grow up all over again and be happy for just a little while!" (To Be Continued) This is the last of eight articles by Correspondent Geldhof telling con cisely what the new congress will have to do and what problems will come be fore it. BY A. E. GELDHOF WASHINGTON, D. C "Investigate!" That's going to be the battlecry ct the Sixty-sixth congress. Maybe you thought the last congress investigated everything under the sun. It almost did from the packers to bolshevism. But its investigation mania won't be a marker to the way the new republican congress Is going to' pry into affairs of the democratic administration. There are a lot of committees in both house which in the past have been, useless, or worse than useless for instance, the committee on disposition o useless executive papers, the eleven committees on expenditures in the various government departments, etc. The republicans plan to enlarge the membership of these committees and turn them loose for a wild orgy of investigation. Undoubtedly there will be a special committee to investigate the conduct of the war. All the errors of omission and commission of the administratis! will be exposed to public view. The flock of investigators held by the democrats when they took control at congress a few years ago remember the Pujo money trust investigation, the Mulhall scandal, the steel trust investigation? will be only a side-show com pared to the three-ring circus the republicans are going to- stage.. OBSERVATIONS Liberty is sometimes enjoyed by all peorles who who preferred it to Ttfe without it. National aspiration is the inability to see truth and justice in any side of a question except the one that promises dividends. And soon the young men made wise in college will discover that very fev employers wish to buy miscellaneous information. It isn't that the fair sex talks more than the other. It merely talks mora about the neighbors. The editor of the Munich Red Flag has been shot. In these times a radical isn't safe anywhere except in America. IF THEY WISH TO STAY HERE, THEY MUST BE AMERICANS We have slowly been forced to the conviction that the hearts of many American citizens are still beating in time with other hymns than "America." This is not the time to upbraid those whose hearts still throb for mother country, and who still have a divided allegiance. There is no use arguing the right or wrong of the matter; it is a good time to end forever this alien tongue thing, alien tongue and alien thought and alien sermon and alien editorial, and all the rites of the various fatherlands. By a hair this nation remained a nation recently. Unless we speedily arrange our digestive apparatus so that we can absorb this great raw hunk of alien meat within us, we are likely next time to have a serious setback, perhaps a major operation; mayhap, a well -attended funeral. All over this country foreigners today gather in dozens and scores and hundreds. , Gather in foreign clubs, where Soreign songs are sung, where foreign speeches are made, where customs aid habits and traditions of nations that we recently were in death grapple with, are uplifted and lauded. we don't blame these folks, that's silly. But we do insist that the sooner it is made obligatory on every American citizen to speak English, and teach English, and preach English, and editor ialize in English, the better. Those who have been making their daily bread, with a large piece of cake besides, in this country for 40 years have had time enough to learn the 300 words needed to speak business and social English. , There is no excuse for the public school teaching of German, or any other language but English. Better make a clean sweep; let the occasional few who desire French, cr Spanish, or German, or Russian, or Chinese, or Japanese, or Cherokee pursue their studies privately, or after the grammar grades, when foreign languages may really be of some slight value in a professional career. Play no favorites; give no loophole for excuses; this is the United States of America for American citizens: English-speaking citizens, without any Hochs, or Si Senor, or WTe We Beebe, or Georgia da Wash, monkey business. And those who can't be Americans, who must hang on to the fatherland customs and traditions and language, while they glean American dollars, let them go back home where their hearts are, and give real Americans a chance. Recently we have discovered several groups of Hun-minded folks slipping out of the holes they crawled into a year or more ago, and these "good Ameri can citizens' are as Hunnish as when they went in. There is one way to end this: Prohibit the public use of foreign languages; prohibit foreign languages; prohibit foreign sermons, foreign language news papers. Did we kill and maim a quarter million American boys, and pour out billions to reserve this country for a lot of sly Hun-minded aliens to grow fat therein? "Whether you are German, Dutch, Pole, Rumanian, Greek, Chinese, Hotten tot, or from nowhere in particular, if you are going to accept the opportuni ties of this country, its protection, its freedom and its prosperity, you must become an English-speaking, American-thinking citizen wthout backward look or home yearning. And those who won't come clean, throw them out. ' We've been entirely too meek and mild and gentle with these potential traitors in our midst. , , Throw m out! One reason why wages can't keep up with high prices is because the more we get the more we feel able to spend. There is a jolt coming for the manufacturer who believes that patriotism will lead good Americans to pay him double the price asked by Hun exporters for the same article.
