Herbert Bayard Swopo, tho Now

succeeded In getting to roe the oper
ation of tho Gorman armies on their
cwa battlo lines, nas returned to the
United States witn his heart full of
tho misery and desolation lr. tho wake
of tho war now devastating Europe.
Mr. Swope's trained newspaper
mind has grasped the situation and
ho knows full well what the Unttod

little at the time. This may sound,
brutal but It must be remembered
and killing and being killed Is the
mala business of a BOldler and so the
correspondent looks at it with the
fighter's view?that It Is all in J <
dav's work.

the women and children, fMborless,
brotherless, homeless.
?There tho falso colors fall away
under tho eye and you boo war as
It 'ruly Is?a vast terror, demanding
ws the least of tho sacrifices, Love,
Life and Wealth. War may 'cleanse
the Inner soul of a nation' but at what
a cost! In Franco and Germany to
dav there Is not a family that has
not felt tho agony of death and there
are too many from which every man
has been obliterated, lying in unre
corded ditches or lacking even that
pretense of burial.
"But death is the least of tho trag
edies that have befallen those who
lived in the direct path of the war.
These have lost their men. who died
in battle; the bouses that had beer,
their homes for years; that every pos
session save the clothes on their backs
and the few poor trifles they could
seize la their flight. And, in fleeing,
these Innocent victims have been
hopelessly scattered so that their fam
ilies already shattered by death have
been lost to one another in the dark
noes of the war areas where there is
no inter-communication, and. because
of tbo miliary restrictions, search for
tho missing onoB is impossible.
"The theme of individual atrocities,
stark as they may have boon, docs not
need to be developed to point a moral:
the atrocity of tho thing in its big
ger side, falling heaviest upon the
helpless, is enough; indeed too much.
War 1b crudest to those not directly
engaged in it! they are the ones who
pay the price and only they can know
bow heavy that prlco is.

Jack Adman's Report
Jack Allman says that the Tolovana
district covers a vast area, practical
ly all of which is staked now. On tho
lower end of Livengood creek, where
tho locators have but ono or two
claims each, there is considerable
prospecting going on, but farther up
stream, where tho early arrivals la
the Tolovana obtained practically no
thing' except representation work is
being done.
On Mike Hess crook, over tho di
vide from Livlngood, many claims
havo been stnkod. and good surface
proBpocts havo been found.
Tho stampeders from Rampart say
that the diggings are 60 miles from
the Yukon river town, and that tho
trail is in excellent shape. They
claim-that there la practically no hills
in supplies.
