Keep this thought before you always: Germany must not win the war. And hitch it up to this fact: Germany cannot be beaten unless we go the utter limit in our support of not only our troops but those of all the Allies. We dare not relax a minute. Germany has been preparing for this struggle for the last forty years. She will leave nothing undone, physically or dipolmatically, to win. She will deceive us whenever and wherever she can regarding her own condi tion. She will willingly have us believe her people are on the verge of starvation, exhaustion, revolt even, if it can be made to throw us oft our guard. Germany overlooks no bets. And we dare not. Roseate stories are coming from the front how we are advancing, taking a series of positions here today and there tomorrow with prisoners by the hundreds and thousands, towns by the dozen. But despite all this the bulk of the German armies still are intact, a formidable foe. And the casualty lists are growing all the time.- We cannot afford now, with the Germans retreating, to fall down on the job, to feel that the war is all over but the march to Berlin. We must not lag in our support and decline to meet every demand the country makes. We must stand pat to the finish. > It's a long, long trail to Berlin. From St. Quentln, on the Franch front, it is 410 miles. And every mile must be fought over. Every mile will exact its toll of lives, and will he more stubbornly contested as the Alließ progress into Germany. Don't make the mistake of over-confidence. It may be fatal. Don't try to shift your responsibility to the other fellow. Stand to your guns as the Yanks are doing. Buy Liberty Bonds to the end. Time is moving swiftly these days, conditions changing rapidly, old habits, customs, trade practices and many convenient accomodations and services falling by the wayside. America is at war—day by day the fact becomes more evident —at war industrially and commercially, as well as with its army and navy. "Things are not as they used to be" —we must adjust ourselves to new conditions, delays, inconveniences, expenses, must do the best we can and not worry about the rest of it. These things don't matter much anyhow—first of all we must win the war. WHAT YOUR SUBSCRIPTION MEANS. When you subscribe to a Liberty Loan you subscribe to the sentiment that the world must be safe for democracy and subscribe to the fund that is to make the world safe for democracy. You subscribe to the belief that innooent women and children on unarmed ships shall not be sent to the bottom of the sea; that women and children and old men shall not be ravished and tortured and murdered under the plea of military necessity; that nurses shall not be shot for deeds of mercy, nor hospital ships be sunk without warning, or hospitals and unfortified cities be bombed or cannonaded with long-range guns. You subscribe to the doctrine that small nations have the same rights as great and powerful ones; that might is not right, and that Germany shall not force upon the world the dominion of her military masters. You subscribe, when you subscribe to a Liberty Loan, to the belief that America entered this wur for a just and noble cause; that our soldiers in France and our sailors on the sea are fighting for right and justice. And you subscribe to the American sentiment that they must and shall be powerful, efficient, and victorious. The natural consequence of the revelations officially made by the United States government last week, that Lenine and Trotsky are really paid agents of Germany and traitors to Russia, has come with the invita tion issued by our government this week to the nations of the world to join in a formal protest against the orgies of murder, rapine, robbery and destruction and the wholesale arrest and execution of the Russians, by the Bolshevik!. The next step is just as obvious —when the time comes. Each day every American soldier in France is confronted by a great Our army there has a great task to perform for our country, for the world, for civilization, and for humanity. Our soldiers are doing their duty with a courage and fidelity and efficiency that thrill every heart. And each day every American citizen at home is confronted by a great duty, a duty as imperative upon him or her as the duty of our soldiers is upon them. . The American people have a great task to perform. It is to support to the limit of their ability our army, our navy, our country at war. To work with increased energy and efficiency so that our national production may be increased; to economize in consumption so that more material and labor and transportation may be left free for the uses of the government; and with the resultant savings to support the government financially is the daily duty of every American. It is a duty that will be met by every American who really loves his country and whose heart is with our soldiers in France, who glories in their courage and fighting ability and their success. THE AMERICAN VICTORIES. Capture of fifteen thousand Germans and hundreds of guns of all types, together with the elimination of a menacing salient that had existed in the Western front ever since the first rush of the German armies in 1914, all in twenty-seven hours' operations by the First American Army, is one of the great victories of the war and so freely called by the English and military leaders. That is what happened at St. Mihiel last week when the American army first operated as a separate unit on the Western front. It proves to the world the stuff of which we are made; it proves to the Allies that America's promises of help were not vain: it proves to Germany that her boasts that we could not accomplish anything, were the hollowest of the hollow, that her sneers at our "raw. untrained army" will have to be cwallowed whole. The war will be on German territory before winter —-'and the Ameri cans will put it there. Olympia made such a fine rtputation for its hospitality and gener osity last winter and spring in entertaining the soldiers who were members of the Ninety-first Division at Camp Lewis, and gave the boys themselves so great encouragement and so much pleasure, that it cannot be doubted its citizens will respond willingly and as numerously again, now that the call has gone out for resumption of the home entertainment plans. If people generally knew how mu< h that "little touch of home" means to those bo>s, knew how greatly they appreciate it. and ever 1 eard them tell straight out how fine it makes them feel, many and many a home would be opened to them over Saturday and Sunday. There's no better way of promoting the morale of our army. Till: WASHINGTON STANDARD. OLYMPIA, WASH.. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 27. l!»lb A DAILY DUTY.

Will OUI FATHERS READ Ml IN THIS PAPER FIFTY TEARS MO MMAI From The Washington Standard for Saturday morning, September 26, 1868. Vol. VIII. No. 47. In this issue appears a lengthy let ter written by Phillip Ritz of Walla Walla, to Hon. J. G. Smith, president of the North Pacific Railroad com pany, telling of his trip over the rocky Mountains, in which he says the route via Pend Oreille lake and Snoqualmie pass will be selected. The people of "Portland-on-Wal lamet" appear to be considerably ex cited over the sale of the East-Side railroad to Mr. Holloday. In it they read one of the signs of the times that the prestige of Portland as the metropolis of the North Pacific is passing away. The Are extinguisher was tried on the public square last evening, in the presence of a large crowd, and the result was entirely satisfactory. In the several experiments the fire was extinguished in from two to three minutes. We will notice this valu able self-acting engine at greater length next week. The great fires raging in the woods in this Territory and in Oregon are the subject of much comment in the newspapers of the coast. Dense clouds of smoke prevail everywhere and have been swept many hundreds of miles from the place of conflagra tion. San Francisco has been ob scured since the 16th. Eli W. Foster, who has been for some time past confined in the "county jail" on a charge of the crime of Incest, escaped herefrom on the night of the 23fd, evidently with the aid of persons on the outside. A Victoria dispatch of the 22nd inst. says that letters from Barker ville, Cariboo, give the particulars of a fire which occurred at that place on the 16th, destroying the whole town. The loss is stated at $1,000,000, but we think it must be greatly exagger ated. They a one-legged tight-rope walker in Oregon who wants to bop across the Willamette. Probably the most terrible disas ter that has occurred for many cen turies has been caused in South America August 13, by the earth quake which visited the coast of Peru and Equador. The loss of life is es timated at 32,000 persons. Several large cities were destroyed and the destruction of property is estimated at $300,000,000. A tidal wave 40 feet high rolled with a terrible roar on the shore carrying ships farther on land than ever before known. A National Labor Congress assem bled in New York on the Ist, to "in stitute reforms and establish recipro cal relations between the different labor organizatons and keep back the encroachments of centralized wealth on the rights of labor." The address of President Whaley was a very able document. Kixe's Brother Killed in France. August Rixe of Chambers Prairie received an official telegram the other day, advising him that his brother, H. J. Rixe, a member of the 91si division organized at Camp Lewis, had been killed in a railway accident in France. He was well known here, having dived here for some time be fore entering the cervice.
