t TRAVEL AT HOME 1
European travel should give people broader views and more general
intelligence. 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
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,

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.

Harding says Governor Cox is a disciple of the theories of Alexander

control." Ohio, voters will remember that "restored" Republican control,

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

Honorable men, since the beginning
of civilization, have shown spirit, not
weakness, as in this instance, in the
face of failure and blasted hopes.

WHY THERE IS NO BOND
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.
