JUNE 27, 1919 Firmness or stillness of mind is not from adherence to truth, .but submis sion to prejudice. , Locke. The New Use of Wealth i It is all in getting used to it. This country within the last two years has got used to spending motley in a big way. Once we got started, we spent more money than there was in the whole country and then lent a lot to people in Europe. Altogether we handled and got rid o more real money than there was in the whole world. That may seem strange but it is true. We shall not attempt to explain it but those who do not bcleive it have only to find out as they may, how much actual money there was in the world a couple of years ago, (that is easy to find out from year books.) and subtract from it i be aggregate of all our Liberty and Victory loans, Hie other billions we appropriated for governmental purposes, the millions that were given to the Red Cross, the Y. M. C. A., and all the various forms of war work. That a good many millions were absolutely wasted, so far as concerns the attainment of the ob jects, for which the money was appropriated, has nothing to do with the matter. They were still a !art of the money we raised and spent. Before the war we were accustomed to think that there was nothing but money. We did not take into iccount other forms of wealth which money only inadequately represents. We had been making no use ol' that at all. We were paying taxes on that wealth when we were not agile enough to dodge the t;c gatherer and we were gathering from it only sudti pitiful increment as we could in the way of rent. We were making little other use of it. For the most oart though, it lay inert. The war liquefied the mass and wealth of all kinds went Into circulation. It came to represent itself instead of being represented only inadequately by money. And we accomplished things that we thought were impossible. It showed to us, to every progress ive community to states and municipalities and to ndividuals what could be done with wealth that even he future could be made to take part in the great accomplishments. Hence we have f;reat expenditures 'or good roads. 'for state roads, country roads and ity streets, for needed public buildings, for business structures for commercial and industrial tnterprises. We are now spending more for improvements than we would have dared to spend but for the war. We have learned that not only money but wealth in its primary form must be made to add to wealth; we see nof that the more paved streets we have the more good hotels we have, the more handsome busi ness and residence structures, the more valuable all these things will become. If the lives of all the millions who were slain could be restored, if all the human suffering could have been averted, the lesson we have learned from the war would have gone a-great way toward offset ting the financial cost of it. ' We have learned a betlet use of wealth. i. What we learned was not new. The captains of industry knew it already; that was what made them captains of industry. Nearly all men who had thriven by the exercise of foresight understood something of the art of making wealth earn its salt, though they frequently set it at sordid tasks. But now the secret is out; the whole public knows it and that is why we are having a new Phoenix. Bravery "You're the second bravest man the war has pro duced," said General McHale, addressing Private Gaffney as he was pinning a Congressional Medal of Honor on his breast. The first, in the opinion of the general was Sergeant Alvin C. Yorke, Private Guff nay wounded and single handed, after killing several Ger mans captured 80 and took them back to the Ameri can lines. Sergeant Yorke under slightly distressful circumstances captured 132 Germans. Is this differ ence of 52 in the number of prisoners a difference in degrees of bravery of the two captors'.' Both these men proved their bravery. Each ac complished all that was set before him to do andt neither could do more. If Private Gaffney was less brave than Sergeant Y'orke and to be the second bravest man he must have been less brave, it was the fault of the Germans in not having as many men opposing Private Gaffney as the number with which they had favored Sergeant Yorke. It was an unhappy speech of General McHale's. t was probably not what he meant at all. What he meant was that the exploit of Private Gaffney so far is the number of prisoners taken was concerned was of less volume than that of Sergeant Yorke, a fact w hich affords no basis for comparison between these two brave men. And there were deeds, thousands of them In the war, performed by men who may have been as brave as either the first or the second bravest man, as rated by General McHale. Men set out alone, into the face of almost certain death. There was none of that excitement of conflict,- that as sociation of numbers, that gang spirit which makes men who are not really very brave, forget dangers. There is a cold bravery the best and purest kind of bravery. It is upheld by no supporting emotion. Many a man who is suddenly rushed into great danger carries himself w ith the Utmost bravery and performs heroic deeds. After it is all over he won ders at the things he did and feels that he had acted under some outward influence. He does not share the i.;;n!ar opinion of his wn braverv. ... . Last Stand of the Bolshevists We have probably witnessed the last stand of the bolshevists in the northwest. They made one at Seattle and it failed dismally. They collected their forces at Winnipeg and had behind them the good wishes of the "reds" everywhere, those of Phoenix as well. They had more substantial support from the supposed headquarters of uolshevism in New York. The very radical labor element, that element which labors with jaw and pen professed to regard the affair as an industrial uprising, knowing at the same time that it was an I. W. W. "revolution" engineered and directed by pronounced bolshevists. just as the Seattle affair had beer.. When the city of Winnipeg was tied up the lead ers were fools enough to think the "strike" might suc ceed, and they impudently predicted a soviet govern ment in that part of the world to be extended all over the continent. But once the forces of law and order w ere aroused, the movement was crushed expeditious ly and the leaders are in the penitentiary facing de portation or long imprisonment. Laboringmen who were drawn into it in the be ginning, thinking it was an industrial movement, got out of it as quickly as they could. The soldiers who had come back with a distaste for most things they had seen and heard in Europe, ranged themselves on the side of law and order as they bad done at the outberak, more than a year ago at Vancouver an more recently at Seattle. The bolshevists and the I. W. W. haven't much sense, but they must have a little and must per ceive the hopelessness of establishing a Russian regime anywhere in North America. If the crown prince is possessed of all the in aninity with which he has been credited, it doesn't make much difference where he is. But it beats the Dutch how he got away. By the simple process of finding no citizen willing to sign the peace treaty and being unable to con script anybody for that uncongenial task, the Ger man government can impose a further delay of the peace proceedings. There is one thing in which the supposedly in harmonious democratic factions of this state are in beautiful and perfect accord the desirability o be ing in control of the party. IVOMAN.IS NAMED FIELD DIRECTOR BY RED CROSS , Is J Mrs. Viola Joyner. Mrs. Viola Joyner was recently ap pointed Red Cross field director at Fort Thomas, Ky. She is the first women to be given such a position in the lake division, which comprises Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. She will be the only Red Cross repre sentative at the permanent post, where she will have complete charge of camp service, hospital supplies vnd communications. She entered Red Cross service a year ago at Camp Sherman. rn fi.o rm wmmwm. j Copyrighted ' IQJO the J 1Rnon 3L fn Nenrpapa Enterprise Assorxhan The Sub-Sea Navy There is one decision of the peace council that we may safely predict will never go beyond its pro nouncement to demand reparation of Germany for the sinking of the German navy. The navy was not under the control of the present German gov ernment. The government had no authority over the officers and crews w-hich had been left in charge of the vessels as they lay in British waters. The British had assumed full responsibility for the safety of the captured vessels. They were supposed to be under British guardianship. And then we have not forgotten that the British wanted to do to the ves sels the very thing that was done to them to sink them. It is now said that the surrender of the ships had never taken place; that the'vessels were merely interned. When a ship is interned its restoration to its owners is always contemplated. But it was never intended that the German navy would be restored to Germany. Such a thing was never discussed any where. Consideration was given to only two even tualities in connection with the German navy, the sinking of the ships and their division among the allies, and it was reported that the representatives of Great Britain and the United States had agreed ' upon the former. If reparation is to be made by any nation for the loss of the ships, it should be made by Great Britain which entirely on its own motion took charge . of them, assumed responsibility for them. Tommy Stalks His Prey And I Follow Him Into New Adventures My uniform didn't fit me at all it hung on me and except for my height, I did not have the figure of Jane Lorimer. 1 remembered this with joy as Tony Cerleis approached me. I pulled my cap over my ears, and it made my wig stick out like a mop. I puckered my lipe into a whistle, added a swagger to my steps and gave my attention to my signature book. "Over there! Over there!" came sweetly from my rounded lips, tiiought goodness knows where I got my breath to make a sound. And then after all my careful prep aration my enemy passed me without bastowing a single glance upon me! Dr. Hamilton Certeis showed his char acteristic indifference to an ordinary girl! And I smiled as 1 thought: "For once, old dear, you've made n mistake you'll regret." I gave Certeis time to turn into the I alley back of his house, then I hurried into the drug store and stood at the window and , watched Certeis slip through the gate with the secret lock. "It certainly is a great comfort to know wh?re you are," 1 remarked to myself as lie disappeared. "Now, if I an only locate Tommy, and hang onto him until his wrath cools, it will be mighty lucky for both of you." Syke's window looked down the alley. I watched the traffic ebb and flow with vehicles in bunches, as they were released by the traffic policeman at the alley's farther end. Certeis had entered the alley from Syke's end at a time when it v;i's al most empty, but hardly had be gone into the tunnel when a group of deliv ery wagons whirled into the nta.ow road from the farther end. And out from among them stepped Tommy! Evidently he had "spotted" Certeis and had followed him home. And Tommy knew about the secret nail which opened the tunnel door! I had told him! And thus it happened that without an instant's hesitation. Tommy had disappeared, under the fountain in pursuit of th'man he had JUDGES AND LAW vowed to kill! "Murder!" Pbit my lips to keep the word back; then I started to phone the oolice: then a new fear seized me. Even at the moment, Tommy might have killed his man! And it was not for me to hand iiim over to the au thorities. Doubtless after he had disposed of Certeis, Tommy would deliver himself up: probablv lie would be acquitted and yet if "i were called to testify, I would have to admit that Tommy had rushed away from the hotel with the intention of taking Certeis' life and that it was a deliberate crime and not an accident. And Tommy's reputation would be stained forever as well as his soul! I dashed down the alley the door yielded to pressure on the magic nail, and once more I stood in the blackness of the cavern and among the pipes of the fountain. To my left lay the long tunnel leading to the labyrinth and the room containing the machine guns, and the shaft of the secret ladder. To my right was the short tunnel which ended in the bolshevik meeting place. I turned to the left and rushed on in the dark. I had outlined the plan of the place to Tommy. In his cold wrath, he would trail Certeis even to the top of the ladder. I could imagine a great puddle of blood spoiling the gold and blue of the rugs in Certeis' room! In frantic haste, and bending slightly forward, I rushed down the passage. Suddenly my forehead hit something with a grand bump. I recoiled, very much hurt and half dazed. The passage was blocked by a slid ing door! I had failed to discover it the day of my escape from the place. But it was a barricade to be expected. U cut off pursuit My senses cleared and I realized that since I had not come upon Tommy in the passage, he must be on the other side of that door with Certeis! I no longer feared for Tommy's repu tation. His life the other side of that door wasn't worth a penny! (To Be Continued1! In March last a case which attracted wide attention came before Justice Darling, one of the high court judges of England, on appeal A soldier, on going to the war. had turnedf over to his wife's care $3500, his life's savings. While the husband was fighting for his country the wife became infatuated with another man, made presents out of the money to him, then went to live with her paramour and was posing as his wife when the husband returned from the war. The lower court had sentenced the woman to prison for 13 months on a charge of larceny and the paramour for 12 months for receiving stolen prop erty. Justice Darling overruled the sentences holding that at the time she dis posed of the money the legal presumption was that she was "living with" her husband and therefore she committed no crime. The other day in Cambridge, England, Lieutenant Francis Wright, M. C, and his brother took sub-Lieutenant Desmond B. Kinham out into the woods stripped him, chained him to a tree, tarred and feathered him in what the British term "American fashion" and then turned him loose. Lieutent Wright has been summoned before a military court to answei for his conduct. He says if Kinahan had been a full sized man he would have thrashed hin and then shot him but as he is a runt and a coward he and his brother, whe lost a leg in the war, determined to take the law into their own hands. A judge who strains the law and defeats the spirit of it brings the lav into contempt. Who can blame Lieutenant Wright? for taking the law intt his own hands when one of the leading jurists of the empire determined u woman and her paramour guiltless on the practically irrelevant fact of the date of her open blazoning of her unfaithfulness? All England rang with the echoes of Justice Darling's decision. Now comes an injured husband a soldier who tars and feathers the destroyer of his home and for that act he may go to prison or be cashiered. The law is not justice when a jurist, through a technicality, works in justice. The judge who decides as did Justice Darling promotes lawlessness by bringing the law into contempt. Incidentally, while the British ar eaghast at the method the rights em ployed to punish Kinahan and they characterize tarring and feathering a American it is no such thing. It is English and was English centuries befort Columbus was born for it was the method Richard of the Lion Heart used ii dealing with thieves and possibly it antedated that great Crusader QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS TRAVELETTE - By Niksah - Congressman Graham of Illinois wants a committee of 15 to investigate war expenditures. Here is a task that will care for lame ducks througn another generation. If Sergeant York keeps his head from swelling in spite of all this here worship, it will be an even more remarkable achievement than capturing a gross of Huns. Mrs. Pennypacker of Texas says that a human, moral issue is necessary to interest women in politics. Offhand, we can't think of anything that is fuller of human moral issues than politics. , Another rebellion is threatened in Ireland. It isn't any of our business but we have noticed that peoples usually get their liberty when they prefei it to life without it. Q. What percentage of the human body is fat? K. L. M. A. About twenty per cent of a nor mal body is fat. Q. Is the question of excessive flesh a disease. D. Y. G. A. Only in rare cases. In lower animals and in savage races nature stores up food for time of famine by converting it into fat. This provision of nature still operates, despite the lack of the necessity of it, among civ ilized peoples, and the result is cor pulence. By substituting fasts for the famines of old, the flesh can be brought to normal with no bad effects. Q. Where did Hog Island shipyard the winter? F- G. H. A. Hog Island was a swamp of waste land when the war came. The name has been attached to it since early days when it was occupied by Indians, but the exact reason for its naming is obscure. Q. Where can I get reliable inform ation on how to store vegetables for the winter V. G. H. A. The Information Bureau main tained by this paper in Washington will send a booklet containing direc tions to any inquirer upon receipt of a two-cent stamp for return postage. Q. Martha Washington is often re ferred to as the "Widow Custis." Was she married twice? T. O. T. A. Yes. Martha Washington was the wife of Daniel Parke Custis who died in lTHT. She was married to George Washington in 1759. Q. Who is in charge of the Graves Registration Service in France? M. A. K. A. The War Department states that the army officer in charge of all Amer ican cemeterial work in France, and therefore the proper source of informa tion w-itn relation to men mined in France, is Lieutenant Colonel Charles ('. Pierce, Graves Registration Service, American Expeditionary Forces. (Any reader can get the answer to any question by writing1 The Arizona Republican Information Bureau, Fred erick J. Haskin, director, Washing ton, D. C. Give full name and address and enclose three-cent stamp for re turn pestage. Be brief. All inquiries are confidential, the replies being sent direct to each individual.) o Nothing can bring you peace but yourself; nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. Emerson. The Garden of Dinosaurs Undoubtedly the oddest collection of statuary in the world is that of life sized cement images of the dinosaurs, which Carl Hagenbeck, the famous collector of wild animal who supplies most of the zoos and circuses in the world, has made upon his estate at Hamburg. As you probably know, the dinosaurs were a strange race of animals who inhabited the earth millions of years ago, before man and the other animals appeared. Some of them were much larger than elephants. Some were harmless, grazing creatures, but others were terrible carnivorous beasts. The appearance of the dinosaurs is known from fossil remains which have been found, and Mr. Hagenbeck has had accurate likenesses made and placed in life-like postures in a park about the edges of a little lake. If a man who knew nothing about it were to come suddenly upon this place on a moonlight night he would probably Jvnow just how some people who do not live in dry countries occasionally feel. Pink elephants and purple kanga roos would be nothing to the image of diplodocus, the largest creature that ever walked the earth. Mr. Hagen beck's cement likeness of this animal is sixty-six feet long, and is seen quietly grazing in a little glade. Near by a triceratops. with three horns on its head and weighing a couple of tons, is. just emerging from the water, while a ty rannosaurus a carnivorous brute big ger than a buffalo is represented in the act of devouring its prey. There are thirty of the monsters and more are to be made. o "COLLEGE MEN" ARE GIRLS A statement isued by the democratic national committee asks the countrv to compare the management of the present war with the way the republicans managed the war with Spain. That "war" with Spain, in modern language, would be called nothing-to-report-on-the-western-front. When asked for interviews, the kaiser tells newspaper men that his atti tude is unchanged. That unchanged attitude stuff is what is afflicting the whole of Germany. Agents of the kaiser are selling his Berlin real estate, but there has beer, no effort to sell that piece of his personal property known aa "my fleet." The United States went into the war. The UNITED states came out of it. Wilson didn't put -over his idealism, yet he need not feel downhearted Nineteen centuries have not converted the world to the idealism on which his is based. Heinie's greatest loss was not his colonies or his fleet, but the American market for 20 per cent of his dyes. When a controversy can't be settled without a resort to violence, one side or the other is unwilling to have peace if it must be obtained at the price of doing the decent thing. Dr. Dernburg declares that it is the primary moral duty of the German people to preserve the honor of the nation. One man should be able to preserve what si left of it. Why bother the whole people about it? (Emporia Gazette) War and the industries made neces sary by war had the effect of deplet ing the student bodies of the Englisn universities to an extent that will be serious this year. At the University of Birmingham, one of the most mod ern and progressive seats of learning ir. Great Britain, where scientific train ing is a specialty, all of the graduates who received the degree of bachelor of science this year were women. Two thirds of the masters of science were Japanese and four-fifths of the bache lors of medicine were girls. o Use The Republican Classified Pages for results read for profit.
