END OF STRIKE IN SIGHT
Prospect- for quick settlement of
the coa] strike and resumption of
work under normal conditions at as
early a date as possible is hailed
with deliglit.
As. the Baltimore American says,
"the motive, that appears to have
been strongest in the direction of
peace is the fear felt byvleading.
mine officials that the principle of
collective bar gamin;; that has come
into respectable recognition might
be lost through stubbornness dis
played by the miners.
"Mr. Wilson will credited with
the last word in effecting the close
of the strike. This is as it should
be. The head of the nation is cer
tainly the court of last resort, and
his advices ought to hav^ weight in
great industrial crises. Neverthe
less the miners have made a bad
record. Despite the fact of their
submission to the injunction and
professions of outright Americanism,
the strike whs kept up to the point
at which indictments were brought
against the miners' leaders, both
national and local.
<lIf the strike shall happily close
the result will be a triumph for law
and order. It will he fre*h evi
dence that the American people will
tolerate no coalition that refuses to
abide by the woril of the govern
ment itself. Mr. Wilson branded
the strike as criminal, and it had
many features of criminality, with
a verge toward revolution. This
typo of industrial action is not
likely to find repetition in the neu;r
future.
THE ARMISTICE WAS A CRIME
#
The truth will out!
Speaking at. a banquet of veteran
officers of the Spanish American and
World wars at ,the Army and Navy
?Club in Washington. November 2U.
General George Harries, chief of
the Allied Commission in Berlin
after th0 signing of the armistice,
declared that the armistice was "lit
tle short of a crime."
The Pt;rshing plan. General Har
ries further explained, was to
force the German armv to surren
X ' S
der in the field; occupation of seven
strategic cities Wy Allied forces:
lifting of the blockade: removal of
all war materials from Germany,
and to impress the German people
with the fact that they had been
defeated.
The armistice was a compact with
death. The German people were
jiot. then and are not now impressed
? ith the fact that their armies were
defeated. They escaped contact
with invasion. They signe'd the
| armistice ivith hatred in their hearts
and with the lust'for vengeance al
ready burning in^heir heads. They
have made no peace. Theim-eturn
! ing armies have been converted into
emissaries of revolution or have
I ? \ .
| been enlisted in the campaign to
' conquer by guile the markets of the
i Allies. They have merely changed
their methods of attack. Their con
version to republicanism was a de
lusron gnd a snare. They have
stopped at .in oasis for a breathing
space?that is all.
?God {rave the universal enemy in
! to our hands, but we signed away
?the triumph.
| Of all the colossal blunders re
( corded in history the granting frf
I the armistice was the most colos
Jsal. Instead of observing November
ill as an international holiday * of
, thanksgiving, civilization is more
i than likely to look back to it ar
I rayed in sackcloth and ashes.
' Soldiers won the great war and
diplomats tossed the victory flnto
the waste basket. \
It is charity to say that the arm
istice was "little short of a crime."

POWER OF THE BOOK OF
BOOKS
'?'More and more it is realized
that the Bible is the only book in
the world which can he applied to
nl? classes, all conditions and all
times." says, the New York Herald.
'Written and compiled thousands of
years ago, when the world was in
its ipfancy and when humanity was
groping its way out of the darkness
into the light, its wonderful images.
Is inspiring stories and its uplift
ng spirituality make it as valuabe
?m agent of civilization and as pow
erful a factor in the uplift of bu
rn unity as ever it was. In fact, the
B:b)e- is found to bc. the best known
?;nide for social progress, for politi
al construction and for industrial
?iace. Its usefulness does not stop
here. It is now employed to teach
"he lessons of patriotism and to
?lcuieate the spirit of Americanism
"On street corners the story of
