"NOW LET US HAVE PEACE"
The words at the head..cf this ar
ticle were uttered by General Grant
to whom the Army of Northern Vir
ginia surrendered in April, 1865.
They were spoken at a t:me when
Charles Sumner. Thad Strvsns and
other radical leaders of the republi
can party were bent upon imposing
the most. cruel hardship* upon the
people of our scction. The General
also said, ''We can all afford to do
President Andrew Johnson was
disposed to do right towards his
southern brethren, but the radical el
ement in Congress, held the cold end
of the -poker for some time, and it
was not until the death of the For?e
Bill that relations between the two
sections of the country began1 to im
prove. the "bJoody shirt" was buried
and all began to realize that the
civil war was over.
As will be seen elsewhere, the
Huns have accepted the peace pact
formulated by the allies. Their Na
tional Asscmtbly has ratified the
treaty by a vote of ayes 208. noes, j
The ratification of the treaty does
not come as a surprise, in spite of
the bitter newspaper and personal
comiment which preceded the formal
fiction of the German representa
tives at Versailles. There .was noth
ing else for Germany to do but to
sipm the treaty and then to ratify it
Hard as she might think its terms,
it was clear that failure to acqui
esce might make thc-m harder still.
Prompt ratification opens the way
for immediate raisin? of the block
ade and the restoration of German
commercial relations with the out
The treaty itself does not became
effective urttil three of the great
Allied powers have ratified it, but
special provision was made for lift
ing the blockade as soon as Germany
acted. The treaty has already
been submitted to th:> British,
French and Belgian parliament-, and
will, be laid before the United
States Senate today. The Allied
Governments are not likely to delay.
The Seriate of the United State's is
the only body which threatens to
hoH up the treaty.
The President appeared at the
Cqpitoi at noor. today, and at 12:15
submitted the treaty to the Senate,
and in open session explained why
the treaty and covenant of the
leairiu; of nations should be rati
WHISKY STILL SOARS
A case in the Alexandria Police
Court a few days ago showed that
whisky is bringing as high as twelve
dollars a quart in this e:ty. The
.price in Baltimore, however, is high
er. $3.r>0 a half pint, being demand
ed at present.
United Stales Commissioner Sup
plee of that city. got his first quo
tation on the price of war-time pro
hibition whisky yesterday when a
i.egro was given a hearing on a
charge of selling1 t<> a soldier.
Thcmas' rate to the soldier, accord
ing to the evidence, was $3.50 a half
pint. He was arrested yesterday
whm policemen said they saw him
place a bottle on a stall in Lexing

the Federal Court.
THE FIENDS STILL AT LARGE.
The attacks upon white women by
groes on the environs of Washington
is still the chief subject-of conver
sation in the cupital city and vicin
ity. A quarter o? a century ago
several such crimes were committed
by negroes in Alexandria county, j
and it was suggested at the time j
that it was a commentary upon our '
evil:nation that such acts -were com- i
mitted in the shadow of the Capi-1
tol of the nation.
In one week, there were five crim- j
inal assaults made pn white women
by negroes virtually in -Washington,
and not one offender has been
caught. , ,
Females have been. warn^^ to

More than. 100 suspects have .been !
gathered by the po'ifce'dragnet,'but i
all except three have been released.
Spurred on by the promise of a
large reward fcr the arrest of the i
assailant, patrolmen and' citiz?ii3

teach them TRAFFIC RULES.
In these days of improved public
schools, when so many suggestions
are being made concerning the pre
servation of the health of little ones,
it has been suggested that a close
study of traffic rules in this day of
motor vehicles might curtail the
number of accidents to children.
While Alexandria, so far, has had
comparatively few serious mishaps
enured by automobiles, such ai*e lia
ble to occur at any time
Adults are often as thoughtless
as children in crossing streets while
these modern vehicles are moving I
rapidly in both directions. In Bal-1
timore a few days ago, while a traf- J
fic policeman was directing the J
movements of autcs, etc., a man, I
who was reading a newspaper, walk- j
ed slowly towards a tide of fast- j
moving vehicles. The policeman
tcok the thoughtless man in charge
and after administering sharp re
buke allowed him to proceed. .

^Millions ef money and dozens of
paid guards and nurses could not
injure the safety or prevent the*
death of Little "Vinson McLean, the
millionaire's child who ran out into
the rcadway in Washington recently
in play, and met death under the
wheels of an automobile!
"Carefully protected and watched
all his nine years of lif?. the time
came when chance made him th? vic
tim of the same type of automobile
; cideht that has taken the lives of
hundreds of humibler children. Be
cause Vinson McLean was the mil
li-naire baby of nation wide public
ity, the world was shocked by his
death?but its real lesson is to every
mother heart which is so warned of
the ever'present menace of* traffic to
the child of the city.
<;A traffic expert has recently made
a careful study of street accidents to
prdestrians. especialy with referencs
tc children* and a? a result of his
work he has formulated a "'set of
safety-first rules for the guidance of
children whose play or business in

"Memorize these rules, then teach
them to your children so thorough
