Notwithstanding the many mis
haps caused by automobiles in cities,
this modern vehicle of > transporta
tion has come to stay, and all are
called upon to watch, look and listen
when about to cross thoroughfares.
Washington has long been called
the city of magnificent hstances.
With its 107ii? squares* .m l w de
streets it is becoming r. city )1'
menace to life and freni it.
thousands of automobiles, auto
trucks and motorcycles*.. Operators
of these vehicles are allowed a
speed, of eighteen miles an hour, and
many often exceed this rate.
Several Alexandrian? have during
the past few years been struck by
rapidly; moving cars in Washington,
and" in"" some instances their injuries
have proven fata!. At this season
of the* year many of our people
visit the capital city- for the purpose
of "Inspecting the Christmas dis
plays. The crossing of streets, es
pecially in the congested thorough
fares, is extremely dangerous, and
every precaution should be tsiken tr?
observe'the law of the r"?d.
The harvest of the police cam
paign against traffic la?v violators
as revealed'.in the #Washingt?n po

Ooyrt during the month of JVcem- ?
ber, due to an accident to the driver
of the city's motorcycle and dam
age ,to the machine. The commit
tee on puNic property yf the City
Council, however, have made ar
rangements for having this neces
sary adjunct to the police depart
ment repaired, am! in a short time
this "red peril" to violators of law
will be again on the job.
APPALLING FIGl/RES
Loss to the United State? ->r. ac
count of the recent coal strike
amounted to approximately ?120,
000,000, according to \V. 0. Mr
Kinney. secretary of the Southern
Ohio Coal Exchange. So allowance
for loss to railroads from curtail
ed service and to iTidusf;n-: > forced
shut down is made in the estimate.
The miners lost $00,000,000 in
wages in the country. The loss to
the railroads is- placed at $40,000.
000. while the operators lost $20.
000,000.
?At the beginning of the strike the
production was already 40 <>00.000
tons short of normal. The !o?s of
production for the entire country,
is placed at 1,000.000 tons daUv.
IMMORAL BOOKS
: .:
; The bun recently placed upon' a
certain book and the arrest and
bailing of the publisher of the same,
brings to mind conditions which
prevailed in Alexandria and vicinity
| during: the war between the states.
| ;At times the Army of the Potomac
jTvas in camp near Alexandria, and
! thousands of peddlers catered to
i the appetites of the soldiers. Ob- i
i scene books were in demand by
i many sons of Mars, and as there
;was comparatively little law against
ithe circulation of such prints in
?those days, persons engaged in the
traffic* made considerable money.
At that time weekly papers, es
j'penally those of a sporting nature
j and such as gave much space to
j. police court trials?abounded in ad
vertisements of lewd books. Those1
which had the largest sale were of
Hie Paul de Kock series, although
this French author had but little
to do with many books bearing his
name. %
Publications still more obscene
had an immense sale. The illus
trations were plagiarisms from pic
tures taken from houses in Pompeii
'tnd Herculaneum. These pictures
'.vcre made at least two thousand
vears a 70 by unknown artists.
While they have long mingled with
''?In. dust their works do follow them,
md are still defiling humanity.
While comparatively few persons
razed upon the pictures in the cit
;'?s which were buried by lava from
:.Vfcunt Vesusvius, their reproduc
tion hy licentious persons of ali
ountries lon?- since irave them tini
?:rsn! circulation.
For over half a century drastic
?\ws against the publication, sale or
istribution of such literature have
?->n in vogue in the United States,
'he person who orders a question
ble hook is made i>(|it;tlly liable
vith him who sells it.

is to arouse sympathy for the two !
thousand or so jail birds who will |
spend Christmas day behind iron j
bars. He says they are there be- i
cause they dared to believe too sin- i
crely and to speak toy honestly for
?good will to men.' The appeal in
their behalf is {to kind hearted
I.Christians and 'the Christian workl.'
"'Kind hearted Christians! How
many of these two thousand "mar- ;
fcyrs" would giadly kill, murder,
bomb out of existence these same ,
kindly men and women within their ;

er would overthrow the government j

choice lot of throat-cutters for
whom their apologists and sv.pport-*
evs are staging: their demonstration.
"Next week Thursday will be the
second Christmas day following the
armistice; The world should be at
peace. The United States should
be free from every" evil influence.
Instead of that we find radicals plot
ting and scheming to revolutionize
America. Instead of express'ng
sympathy for them, we should bo at
the task of jailing every native"who
sees red and deporting every alien
who is possessed of i\ fiery I rain.
This country must be rad" safe f jr
decent American citizens to live
in."
