Ypres, Lille, Lens, Amiens, Cambrai, St. Quentin, Laon, Verdun, Rheims, all along the battle line their lights of glory shine on the pages of today and we turn back in the great book and lock closely to see the radiance reflected about them from the long ago. But not one of these cities has more to boast about in the matter of glory and of momentous events that oc curred before their walls than has Courtrai, that ancient city of Flanders, taken by the British the ether day. There had been no fighting before Courtrai, no waiting or hoping or longing for her redemption from the Hun. She was far from the battle line. There are no endless rows of wooden crosses before her walls, and in the night winds that blow across her fields can be heard no sighing of any army of ghosts of the men who fought and died that she might be free. Not in this war. But in wars gone by many men have died for and against Courtrai, and the ghosts of men dead for five hundred years haunt her streets and fields. . Before the ramparts of Courtrai over five hundred 3'ears ago "was fought the most remarkable battle of democracy against autocracy in all the history of the world. Here the common citizens of Ghent and Bruges, on foot and with pike and axe, defended the town against the on slaught of the knights and nobles and the proudest chivalry of old France, and when the day was done these plebian footmen celebrated in old Courtrai their victory over the patrician horsemen and princes of the French king. Forty thousand Flemish burghers fought against an equal number of the French at Courtrai in the year 1 302, and the day after the battles these workers and weavers and winegrowers gathered up three thousand golden spurs from the heels of dead knights on the battle field. Many historians referred to this fight as the bat tle of the Spurs. , At another period Charles the Rash, the proud, reckless, brave and glorious Duke of Burgundy, rode with a picked band of fol lowers against Courtrai, and these same burghers laid down their hammers and their yardsticks and picked up theii trustv pikes and went forth to meet him. And Charles the Rash fell in that fight and his body was found next day in a shallow, frozen pond, with a ring of Kis dead knights and men-at-arms about him. No gayer, more gallant or glorious figure ever made his war horse caracole across history's page than Charles the Rash. Born to the pur ple, bred in arms, vainglorious, handsome, dashing, princely, brave to rashness, as his name implied, he was the type incarnate of the patrician and autocrat of his day and age. His generals tried in vain to dissuade him from leading his small band against those massed pikes that guarded Courtrai. but his invincible pride would brook no opposition of mere citizens against his princely pennons, and he rode to his death, as debonnair Vind dauntless' a knight as ever couched a lance or whirled a sword in the lists of war. But the men of Burges and of Ghent cared net for hi3 beauty or his fame or his skill or hii fiery courage or his silver mounted armor. They set their p-kes and hamstrung his horse and hacked him with their axes and left his corpse in the sedges of a pond where it froze in the sheeted ice of a winter night in Flanders, as mean and as melancholy a shroud as ever encased the form of a darling of fame and for tune and princely rank. Yes, Courtrai has had her battles. She has always siood a bulwark of democracy against the princes. Her citizens have never quailed before the power of kings. And now she is free again from the con quest of might over self government. Her cathedrals and halls and spires are most of them more than 600 years old, and her history date3 tack to the time of the Roman conquest of Gaul, but if these towers stand another six hundred years and her history dates forward twice as many j'ears as it does backward, never again will Courtrai citizens have to fight for their lives and their liberties against the kings and princes of this earth. Kingship is as dead today as Charles the Rash, duke of Burgundy, whose body was found frozen in ice in a pond before Courtrai five hundred years ago. The fifteenth point respectfully pre sented as an addition to President Wilson's original fourteen THE BAYONET! Oranges are retailing at twelve and one half cents apiece in Chicago and the Windy City has declared a blacklist on this high priced fruit and is eating Florida 'grape fruit at ten cents per. France remembers only too well the con ditions imposed by Germany when her vic torious legions surrounded Paris and de manded the surrender of the French arm- ies in 1870, and France will insist upon these same conditions now for Berlin. It is true that the allies have not yet surrounded Berlin, but patience. Wait a little while and we shall see the Tommies and the Poilu and the Yanks before the Brandenburg gate. Tucson Citizen: President Wilson has 3ent a telegram to Carl Hayden endorsing his loyalty. As far as we know HaydenJs loyalty has never been questioned but he had been criticised because his war record is bad and he voted against the draft and denounced this great measure in scathing terms. Does the president approve of Hay den's ve'e against the draft? He does not say so. Germany has always practiced a most glad and glorious frankness with her allies. For instance, when the French penetrated into Bulgaria they found plenty of intelligent Bulgarian officers and civilians who in sisted that Paris had been taken by the Hun and that London was in a state of seige; They were positive, these Bulgarians, that Germany had never lost a battle in the west; they had the assurance of the Ger man imperial government for it. "We want the allies to insure us our rights," now wails the duchy of Luxem burg. But what rights has Luxemburg in the premises? She made no protest when the Germans violated her territory to stab France in the back. Her duchess is in love with that blackguard, Rupprecht, prince and general of German hosts. For four years she has been contented and safe and shamed and satisfied on the side of the win ner. New, when the tide turns and the al lied rivers of steel flow towards her bor ders, she prates of her rights. If she has wrongs, let her turn to Potsdam to have them righted. Surely her good friend and protector, the Hun, will incline his ear to listen to the justice of her appeal. The first germ having been sown, a brood of notes are now propagated and fly on their own wings from Germany to these shores. Austria, too, is sending them. L.et us pray that the next and only reply to all. .these Prussian subterfuges be pro nounced ty Foch himself, in the terms and details of the surrender. It is certain that Foch will demand Metz and Strassburg on the south and most likely Ccblenz and Co logne on the north, and certainly Heligo land, and the surrender, as well as the with drawal of certain ships and armies. And woe to the allied civil leaders or the politician who dares to censure or oppose or even disagree with those terms of Foch. The allied commander in chief must not be interfered with or his power curtailed in the least by the political leaders in the matter of the armistice. Germany is sure to whine and appeal to Wilson for more just and merciful terms. But the world knows that when this same German stood before Paris he insisted on complete surrender, and then he would not grant peace until France had given up Alsace and Lorraine and a billion in indemnity and allowed German troops to parade in triumph through Paris. If Foch wishes to tear a page from von Molke's notebook and insist upon an allied parade through the Brandenburg gate into Berlin, can any German, with his own ex ample of 1 870 before him on history's page make any logical or honest objection or plead extenuating circumstances or lack of precedent! Political Gossip PHOENIX. Ariz., Oct. 31 That Tom Campbell will Lo elected governor of Arizona by a majority of 5000 is the prediction of Judge Albert M. Sanies, republican state chairman, who has just returned from a tour which took him into every county in Arizona. Judge Sanies found that in every coun ty the old Hunt and anti-Hunt lines 1 have been closely drawn and that it is generally understood that Fred Colter i is the Hunt candidate. Judge Sanies believes that 7500 democrats in Arizo na will vote for Tom Campbell this year because they believe he was counted out when justly elected and because of their desire to smash the Hunt .machine. Will Carry Cochise Judge Sanies who lives at Doug las, predicts that Tom Campbell will carry Cochise county and that he will get a larger majority in Maricopa county than he received two years ago when that county went over the top Yith 3194. .He also believes that Colter will lose his home county of Apache. Here is the way Judge S'ames has figured it out from personal observa tion in each county: Campbell. Apache 100 Navajo 150 Coconino 250 Mohave '. Yavapai 500 Maricopa 4000 Yuma : . . . .

A CHURCHMAN'S ZEAL AND ARDOUR Toe day the kaiser's request for an armistice wes received a member an nounced the fact in the Methodist con ference in Los Angeles, and added the remark. "Is it not glorious?" Like a flush the bishop was on his feet and exclaimed, "It is perilous!" The con ference responded with a' roar of apj plause with hand nnd voice. The bishop continued amidst continuous applause: "We are in danger of los ing til for which we have been fight ing. We are fighting (or peace,- batted on righteousness and founded on the eternal principles and ideals of the democracy of Jesus Christ. Any other I ground of peace imperils all the sacri fices of men and money we have made." He held the lapel of his coat with a service pin with tto stars and continuing, said: "You and I have given our boys and God only knows what it means to me, but rather than have a peace which will not be endur ing and world wide, we shall complete our sacrifice. Hear what Isaiah the Prophet says: 'The wicked are like the troublous sea when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt' That is what the kaiser offers now. 'The fruit of righteousness shall be peace and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.'

ONLY 100 PER CENT PATRIOT8 FOR CONGRESS Christian Science Monitor: Only 100 per cent patriots will be support ed foi seats in the United States con gress by the national security league. There are 47 "close" districts in the country, and in each of these the can didate whose record will not bear, and even brighten under, the acid test is to be vigorously ' opposed by tho league. In the test, the eight princi pal war measures, from the Mrlemore resolution to the Katin amendment to the conscription act. are to cut con spicuous figures. There may be ob jections to the security league's meth ods in some respects, but these are over onie by the fart that they are by no means as objectionable as the can- jdidate for congress who is a patriot only when he is seeking votes.
