For some, it has been mere extravagance and useless spend ing. It may be worth all it costs, yet it does drain hundreds of millions of dollars annually from our country. On August 1, Europe closed up its hotels and ralroads, opened its cem eteries, and went into the killing business. If the war ends soon many curiosity skers may then go over, much as the ghouls flock to a raihoad disaster. Normal people will find Europe in turmoil for several years. Everyone having leisure and money for travel may well take this time to familiarize himself with the wonders to be seen at home. The war should teach a renewed respect for American ideas and 'insti tutions. While the powers of Europe have been loading themselves up with the barbarous implements of slaughter, America has been making better highways, educating its children, removing disease, and improving its farms. . 7- - ,; " ' '' ' While Europe is now destroying matchless relics of the past, America has been erecting churches and monuments, painting pictures and carving statues. Much-of this work is crudebut much is very beautiful. While foreign powers are working ofT the cruel fevers of barbarism, let us here at home value at its true worth all that our own builders and artists have done. t There ought now to be in every American heart, a renewed affection for his native land. It should stand for him as the home of peace, as the bed where love4 and science and labor are the ideals, not blood and iron. One should realize better the gorgeous scenic beauty of our fair land, and feel deeper interest in the abounding energy of American achievement, Let the traveler then, until Europe learn more of what God and Man have SUPPORT THE The Democrats of Medina county of the county ticket which was nominated at the recent primary. The candidates are well qualified to fill the offices which they are seeking. Their success in their canvass will depend largely upon the Democrats of the whole county urging their election. While the men now serving at the court house are good men and have made good records, yet they were put there in all instances, because they were Republicans. There natural ly is some independent voting in many instances for personal and other reasons, and this affects all candidates on all tickets. But if the Dem ocrats aspire to see men of their party holding the places in the court house, which have for years been l.ld by Republicans, they must support their party nominees. Of course, today many voters are influenced by the argu r"cct ol special htnehs of a certal i man, regardless of party. S-j actimes one party has a man nominated who, is head and shoulders above his opponents, and he" might better be elected for the best interest of the peo ple.' But as a rule the nominees are fairly equal in ability and party men can support their own nominees with the belief that the people's interests will be well subserved if their party choices are elected to these offices. The fact that "the enemy" has had possession of the county citadel for so many years, (for party reasons only) should stir the Democrats to unite on their men. It will be the only way to put them in office. V BATHRICK SHOULLD BE RETURNED The selection -of a Congressman from this district should receive most careful consideration ,i rom the voters in Medina,' Lorain,Summit, and Por tage counties this fall. It is highly important for all those who are in sympathy with the Wilson administration to see that Congressman Bath rick is returned. The Wilson administration has been able to accomplish the great undertakings which have been to its great credit, because it has had a majority in congress in entire, sympathy with its policies.- - The co operation of ,ttie legislative and executive branches has secured results. A continuation of the Democratic House is necessary to permit of a harmon iously working government at this critical time. Congressman Bathrick offers, besides his ability, an experience of years in tie Hoi' which is invaluable. - He has been a faithful representative of his constituents in his o'd district, and will undoubtedly be in the new district, if elected. He has helped in every possible way the administration measures, and is today looked upon as one of the leading Democrats in the House. The election of a Democrat from this district would mean the continuation of Democratic policies unhampered, and many independent voters' will be glad to help towards his return. A vote for Willis is a slap at Wilson. Willis has opposed every measure of President Wilson, even the policy of peacei To support Willis is to oppose Wilson.

The striking miners in Belmont county, one thousand strong, greeted Governor Cox at St Clairsville this week, carrying a banner: "United we stand, divided we fall; vote for Cox er not at all." "The New Ohio", a concise review of two yearB of progress in Ohio, is off the press.

Ohio, voters will remember that "restored" Republican control, means the restored lobby, the restored treasury graft, restored disregard for the people, and a host of other drove out of Ohio six years ago. v - The "advisory committee" gave Willis good advice, when It told him to stay out of Ohio..

EDITORIAL : FROM OHIO ; " IN THE OLD DAYS. (Youngstown Vindicator.) , In this campaign upon the part of; the discredited Republican organiza tion In Ohio to get back Into power from which it was driven some years since, It Is well for the voters, and particularly the voters who pay. the, taxes, to remember what the record of the party is that seeks another lease on power. ' The Columbus Dispatch points out what was the rule in the old days when things were different and in marked contrast with what they are today under Democratic administra tion of a dollar's worth of good gov ernment for each dollar expended. Here's what it says: "Almost without exception publie office was regarded as a private snap. Politicians filched everything from school funds to liquor tax. Public work, whether performed by - Btate, county or city, was expected to be and was a cesspool for graft. Right here in Franklin county, county offi cials enriched themselves by from $20,000 to $40,000 a year under the elastic interpretation of laws which were origirally enacted in the inter est of the machinists of the Repub lican party." It was sc throughout the state in the days of Republican power. Frank lin county is not alone with a memory of such experience. Other counties can' recall Republican methods. Tho state itself had experience In the treasury and institution scandals, and it is necessary now only to point to the recovery of money rightfully be longing to the state, paid back by Re publicans, as the evidence of a Repub lican shortcoming in office at a time when the party stopped at nothing that would aid the organization. Leg islation and administration were with a view to their effect in strengthening the organization. Even courts of Jus tice did .not escape attention, so strong was the machine method of running affairs in Ohio. BACKSLIDING DEMOCRATS. (Putnam County Sentinel.) Hon. Harvey Garber and Hon. John J. Whitacre have been .counted as Democrats- . Both have served two terms in the congress of the United States. Both have accepted honors from the Democratic party. Both rose to prominence and influence in Ohio by Democrats boosting them .up the ladder . In return both have ren dered good service in the past Both are' endowed with large ability and experience,1-. , , 't They now propose to sink the party ship, that 'gave them place and stand ing among men. They, seek to multi ply themselves by organizing misguid ed men to fight the party that nour ished them. They boast that they are fighting ; Governor Cox.' 'Tie lalf They fight the hosts of Thomas Jef ferson. Their success betrays Democ racy. Their triumph will assassinate ths administration of Woodrow Wil son. Their gloating will be lauded and applauded by Wall street and robber, tariff barons. Their glee and gladness ' m halt the march of progress in ! Ohio and blight again the school, the' church, the cripple, the orphan;' the helpless mooter, field, farm and high way. Democracy has lone outrrown personal' grudges. James M. Cox is only "an incident m the contest His defeat means a eause defeated. His defeat would help undo the great work done at Washington and Colum bus by Democrats, tried and true. la days gone' by the Tories .and the 'Art noids made liberty hard to get Every man wo ever felt the throb of Demo eratle blood coursing in his veins enght to chide Garber, Whitacre and their crowd for giving aid and com fort to the enemy when battle threat ess. ' '' . i - Democrats, beware. Do not cross ths Rubicon, Regrets are sure to fol low. Garber and Whitacre are rock ing the boat. Democracy never won a victory by deserting its leaders. Follsw the flag. Bhun backsliders. GOODBY, JOHN I (New Lexington Herald.) John J. Whitacre has finally an nounced his Intention to continue his political antagonism toward James M. Cox and will support Willis, the Re publican nominee There is general rejoicing among Democrats that the skirmish, which he imagines is to be a for-sure fight will be conducted outside the party lines, Just where fellows of that ilk belong. So long as he paraded as a Democrat be was a reproach to the party. It is his privilege to labor and vote for the Republican candidate and to vainly attempt to defeat the man he hates for petty personal reasons. But thank God he has had the cour tesy to' drop the cloak of Democracy and assume the vesture of Republi canism, which he should have worn for many years gone. The term "game sport" can not ap ply to fellows of the Whitacre stripe. Honorable men, since the beginning of civilization, have shown spirit, not weakness, as in this instance, in the face of failure and blasted hopes. Ooodby, John! . ' , V AOd we have one or two of your stripe in Perry county, too, whom we want to see come out tn the open and make a declaration, so that the Dem oieratle' party will forever , be rid of their yestifwous prntnee ' , ' 1 iCOiXMJT 1 NEWSPAPERS WHY THERE IS NO BOND MARKET. ; i While it has been generally un derstood in financial circles why there Is no market for b.mds and securities at this time, there seems to be some misunderstanding in the rural districts. Recently bond issues in school districts and sub divisions have been offered with out bidders. Then the officers have offered the bonds to the state in dustrial commission, but of course in times of inactivity of the ; bond market, the Industrial commission would be unwise to take over bonds under the law. Furthermore, in most cases the commission is debarred from ac cepting bonds for the protection of which a sinking fund has not been established at the same time bonds are issued. . Bond sales which have been pro jected in the past and advertised according to law in the cities, have met with the same fate, and in similar conduct, the sinking fund trustees in the larger cities have served notice that they will; take no more bond issues at pres ent' - In regard to the sale of bonds, the officials who are puzzled would probably be enlightened if they tried to borrow money at their own banks, and would probably secure information if they made a hasty demand even for their own money. Foreign conditions have closed the market for tho time be ing for all forms of bonds, stocks,, securities and similar invest ments. Officials having charge of public funds, though authorized by laW to make certain Investments as a means of aid to public needs; must not cripple their resources at times when there is no market for the securities they might take, in, border ,to temporarily aid a dis trict, township or subdivision. The industrial commission has, how ever, accepted approximately $400,000 in bonds to date, where the bonds were properly issued in compliance with - the . law and Js still prepared to assist where need is pressing. sP.t-v, : gUlfWANT GOOD .ROADS, .
