THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT
IN THE CONFERENCE WE TRUST Lenine, the Russian premier, say3 that the United States will be at war with England or Japan within the next seven years. He declares that a chase for the gold will bring ' on the war. Scientists believe that ' in the Ural mountains there are great quanties of gold, and Lenine reasons that there will be a quarrel over this gold. American citizens are - leaving it to the disarmament conference to make war impossible. The Nichols Journal. J. H. Yarberry and Joe Marlow of the South Side Garage have gone to Tulsa, Okla., to drive home two Tulsa automobiles for which Mr. Yarberry has the agency in this territory. Airplanes have been thick here this week. It has kept Tris Hubbnrd and Ransom Swartz busy seeing that they did not violate the air traffic regulations. The Democrat moves that' the city council buy them a plane apiece so they can make aerial arrests for violations of the new air ordinance. Subscribe for the Democrat MUST NOT CRITICIZE Oscar S. Strauss, chairman of the general comittee on the limitation of armament is averse to criticism, and puts it very plainly in the following statement: t . "At this great crisis in the worlds history," the statement issued by Mr. Strauss said, "the official spoksman for the peaceful longing of the United States must be accorded the fullest support of the country and left rea sonably free from criticism until they have had time to develop specific policies". , v It is unfortunate that such-a state ment could have not been made upon the eve of President Wilaon's attempt to promote world reace. With the co operation of the public such changes might have been made in the League covenant to make it acceptable to America. No political prejudice should enter in to the proposition, and if there is an' chance to promote a limitation of armnnment program it should be wel comed by the people of both political parties. The Democrats felt the sting of pol itical opposition keenly, but we sin cerely hope that they will not let pre judice guide them in this instance and that they will lend every assist ance to the end that future wars will be made less likely.

Dear Editor: In your last weeks is sue you had a little piece on how we should celebrate Armistice day. That is a wonderful day in the history of the war. . The article said that if the boys coud come back that gave their lives, they would blush with shame to think we had not done something in their honor in memory of that aw ful sacrifice. We should . blush with shame to think the great America has not done something for the boys that sed and with eyes gone, and no way to support themselves. Every town and county should appeal to the gov enor and he to Harding and have this money that is raised to build a mon ument for the boys that are gone, to take the milions that are raised and build hospitals and homes for the boys and their wives and children, and do for the living. If one could come back and talk he would say "Help them thafneed help. The dead are at rest and they don't need help." We can honor the dead with out stone and cement. Let us be up and , doing and help the helpless do something so they can make a living and have a home and a doctor's care we owe them that is sure. Let us celebrate Armis tice day by starting a fund to 1 help the crippled boys. They need the help and the care. A FRIEND Here's a Proposition To Women Only....

This is a duty which the government owes them, and should be handled as a gov ernment proposition. We also believe that the living ex-service men should be properly compensated by the gov ernment for their sacrifices. How ever, the honor which we as individ uals owe to those who gave their liv es, should be paid by the communities from which they went, and thus ev ery phase of the situation would be properly handled.

Tin case cited wus that of live ban dits who were convicted of highway robbery In the province of Cugaynu, Philippine Islands, and sentenced to die by the old Spuiiixli method of strangulation. After the execution the live bandits were placed on the tloor of a church to await funerul rites In the morning. In the night three re gained consciousness. Two of the three died "again" in u couple of duys, but one recovered, although left lu a deformed condition. The question uaked are whether the bandit who lived could he strangled again, or. If he could not, would the fact that he was legally pronounced dead prevent ,hls being tried in the courts if he committed uuolhcr crime. Mr. WilliuiiiK wrote an opinion to the Inquiring person, declaring Hint he be lieved that an order could he obtained from the court setting sixlde the first execution us having never been per formed and another one ordered. His opinion whs Hint if the bandit were not killed, tinully, he could be held amenable for other crimes, al though legally he was not in existence. "or course."
