The alluring featurn of the Vatican's
supgestion is found in the thought
that it may offer now without further
loss what will be obtained, if the war
goes on, with additicnal losses, but
the western nations have paid an en
ormous bill, have obtained nothing in
a struggle which they did not want
think they are growing stronger, and
want a decision which will give them
results of their awn makingr-
They are distrustful of agreements
ana promises. Treaties do not survive
great emergencies. Punishment, they
think, might be a safer preventive
than a promise. To them the sugges'
tion that the war be regarded as a
terrible mistake and that it be stop
ped without result does not outline
the necessities.
Undoubtedly they are tired of war,
even as we shall be after we have en
gaged in it even a year, but they are
afraid of a resultless war ending mere
ly in hopes and promises, in what
ever form of agreement these hopes
and promises find themselves.
\Ve also have the same fears. Ger
many shows no signs -of a contrite
spirit. A rebellion against grandiose
scemes might arise in Germany after
th$ war, but what reason have we to
believe that German ambitions have
been changed?
At the provost marshal general's of
fice in Washington every mail brings
large numbers of resignations of
members of local selective draft
boards. Some have "cold feet." Others
consult their personal convenience.
This has gone so far that Gen. Crowd
er lias telegraphed the governors of
all the states, protesting vigorously,
and reminding them that board mem
bers could be forced to serve. Here
after the .president will'accept no res
ignations unless they are accompan
ied by specific statements of fact and
the recommendation of the governor.
As Gen. Crowder has said: "The ex
ecution of the law cannot be delayed
by refusals based on reasons of in
dividual benefit."
A pretty situation, is it not? Young
men ordered nolens volens to show up
for examination at the hands of of
ficials who may send them to the
trenches, and the officials too indif
ferent, or too selfish, or too timid to
stick to their jobs! What an example!
We hope that legal means will be
found by which draft board slackers
can be dealt with as they deserve.
If not, there remains a social penialty,
and a draft board slacker should go
on public black list.—Chicago Tribune.
Now that the work of discharge and
exemption by the local board, has ac
tually begun and some of the drafted
men are being accepted and others re
jected,' the pjiblic' ohould remember
that the duty of the local board Jls to
furnish to She government the requir
ed quota of men. To this end they
are to take every possible man for
the purpose in the order in wfyi,ch .his
number was drawn by lot. it is not
their privilege to Had every possible
loop hole by which the conscripted
may be discharged. Every exemption
of discharge, if unjust, works an in
jury, even though unintentional, to the
men' whose numbers were drawn later,
because of advancing them in the or
der of call.
It should be understood that for the
guidance of the looal board the gov
ernment denies kind and degree of
physical defect which renders a man
undesirable for military purposes, but
at the same time reserves for itself
the right to decide, through its army
surgeons at the camps, cases where
doubt exists as to physical fitness.
Also in the matter of dependents, the
government alms to discharge from
military duty only those whose serv
ice in the army would cause actual
want to their dependents. Under re
cent federal rulings married men are
not to be exempted when the drafted
man's army pay or family will provide
for his dependents.
These facts should be candidly con
sidered by all who may be directly
concerned in this new military regu
lation and necessity pnd who are di
rectly affected "By it. The duties of
the board are very disagreeable and
it is a,thankless job to say the least
which devolves upon someone. Tho
readiness and* willingness of a great
nation liko the United States to de
fend its rights will hasten the close
qf this awful struggle and have a ten
dency to keep the world from future
wars. Let us all be patriotic!
There are comforting facts for those
who enter the war and for others
whose loved ones are drafted. Rodger
W. Babson has figured out very care
fully that the man who is picked for
the national army, the chances are
four to one that he will see little actual
lighting in Europe. If he reaches the
firing line, the chances of being killed
are CO in 1000 in a year, of being
wounded, 150 in 1000. He will be less
liable to disease than if he is work
ing in a city. Furthermore, if he is
connected with some branches of the
service, such "as the heavy field artil
lery, he is no more likely to be killed
than if he were working on an Ameri
can railroad.

For further proof of this strong
assertion, 1 ask you to examine with
me, Daniel 2. Here a magnificent
image of gigantic form is seen. This

thighs -of brass, his legs of Iron, and
his feet part of iron and part of clay.

To the Editor:
Considerable is being said and writ
ten about the proposition to make a
great federation of the nations after
the war is over, and that all troubles
which lead to war will be settled by
arbitration. I am heartily in sympa
thy with the ^proposition that the na
tions lay down their arms and fight
no more, but notwithstanding such
a laudible undertaking, it can never
become a permanent fact until Christ
comes and sets up His everlasting
and universal kingdom.

They shall\ mingle themselves
with the seed of men but they shall
not cleave to one /another.''' Now
notice its fulfillment.'
Beginning with Babylon, four world
kingdoms arose consecutively to rule
the world, namely, Babylon, Medo
Persia, Greece and Rome. Romp, the
"Iron Monarchy," has been divided
into ten kingdoms, thus fulfilling the
prophecy, to the very letter. The di
visions are known as the modern na
tions of Western Europe.
It is also suggested that the Pope
be made the head of that institution.
Now, tiie bible tells that just such &
federation would be attempted in the
last days. In Revelation 17 it tells us
in symbol that the ten kingdoms, and
these kingdoms are the nations of
Europe today, will agree among them
selves to give their power into the
hands of the papacy for a time, tiut
I tell you, this will not succeed for

broken up and will be foliowed by a shall minglo-themselves with the seed
much greater war, namely' the ArnfiFTn
geddon, the dying struggle of the .na
God's word cannot be broken. These
nations, have Jttied to unite many
times powerful men like Charles
and Napoleon have tried it, but they
have all miserably failed. The might
iest of the world have been unable
to cairse God's word to fail.
Force failed to unit'i the divided
kingdoms so they tried another
scheme. Said the prophet, "They
of men bift they shall not cleave one
to another." Witness how the reign
ing houses of Europe have' married
and intermarried with the fond hope
of thus accomplising union, but the
warl shows how miserably that plan
failed, for it seems to be one great
family., quarrel.
But now the last great act in God's
drama. of the ages is before us. "Iii
the day? of these kings shall the G.oiL
of heapen set up a kingdom, which
shall .never be destroyed." It will
not'come through politics it will not
come through, war. The world will
never be wholly converted. It will
come by the destruction of existing
wicked nations and the coming of
Christ. Every human plan will fail.
It behooves us all therefore to join
the kingdom of Christ that we may
live forever.
