On Tuesday, May 27, this district
?will elect its next Congressman, R.
Walton. Moore, of Fairfax, is the
Democratic candidate. It is seldom
the privilege of any electorate to
vote for so capable a?r! upstanding a
man. Mr. Moore has the experience,
intelligence and integrity to meet all
the big issues of the day in a big
American way. His presence m
Congress will be one barrier against
the wild creeds of the age. It is
the plain duty of al] citizens tn
carry Mr. Moore's candidacy over
the ?op on election day,?there is
now no place for political slackers.
Remember the day?Tuesday, the
27th day of May, 1919.

morning will vie heartily with those
I who have r,o nobly placed their shoul
derte to the wheel.
Our old city has heretofore re
joiced on similar occasions. It is
| incumbent upon it to do so again,
more so now than ever. Soldiers
returning to their homes after the
thrilling days of 1776-1783, received
the honor due thm, as did those who
fought in the second war for inde
pendence in 1812. Survivors of the
Indian wars, those of the Mexican
war, the war between the States..
Spanish-American war and the move
ment on Mexico several years ago
were all received with open arms
after >,hey had performed their du'y
to their country.
The Alexandrians who braved th:
Atlantic, defying the elements and
German submarines ,ar.d fought upon
the plains of Picardy to pr:serve
Liberty should be tendered a r ya!
welcome upon their return tD the
city of their birth.
The Chamber of Commerce h?s
the matter in hand, and this organi
zation should have the undivide i sup
port of every citizen.
The words of the civil war song
"When Johhny Comes Marching
Home Again," can be used with as
great enthusiasm in 1919 as th-"
were in I860.

GRANTED WEEK OF GRACE

Paris, May 22.?A week of grace
was granted Germany by the allied
and associated governments .yester
day in reply to her plea that so vase
was the task of putting all her com
plaint?. in writing, ' and =ro intricate
were th> details of the "expert" re

Almost simultaneously with this
announcement came news from Ber

treaty in its present form.
A carefully worded statement was
issued by the Berlin ministry, re

uttered by various ministers and by
Ebert himself during the last few
Like all previous utterances it
"pfays up to" American public opin
ion and to President Wilson, basing
the whole German defense on the
fourteen points. ^
Incidentally, it calls the Versail
les treaty a "Hymn of Hate."
At this cabling it is not known
wheether the Berlin statement was
made public before or after the re
quest for an extension of time was
granted. The general opinion, how

and not "sprung" until Count von
