Comrades Hanged at Dodge
Will S. Johnson, colored, lust re
turned from ("amp Dodge with a dis
charge, told his personal impressions of
the hangings of the three negroes who
suffered a public execution at that
camp about a week ago.
Johnson Is one of several colored
men who have returned from Camp
Dodge discharged. When they report
back to Chairman Slzer's hoard the
first thing that each of them tells Is
about the negroes that got hanged.
'They hung them all at once on the
paride ground." said Johnson. "No
civilians were allowed to see the exe
cutions, hut the soldiers all had to see
hem. The provost guard was the execu
tioner. The regiments lined up and I
couldn't hear a sound. Then the men
were asked If they had something to

"Everybody was nervous. When the
three men dropped about twenty-five
men, white and colored, dropped out of
When asked what he meant by
"dropped out of ranks." Johnson shook
his head; "J mean they falnied."
Johnson came, to Mr. Sizer's board
to see f he could continue at his old
trade of cook on a Pullman diner under
the "work or fight" rule. Clerk Han
cock told him he could, and he walked
out of the office happy after his brief
three weeks of military experience.

New York. July 10. The eonllnued dry
weather In the. southwest and apprehen
sion of unfavorable crop accounts led to
further covering In the cotton market
during today's early trading. There was
also buying of early new-crop deliveries
by spot house brokers and further cov
ering of July by Liverpool Interests. The
market opened steady at an advance of
4 to 15 points, and before the end of the
first hour sold 24 to 34 points net .higher,
with July touching 28.15c and October
25.01c. Some of the unfavorable crop ad
vices from the southwest were accompa
nied by buying orders, and stop orders
were uncovered on the early advance.
The reaction extended to 21. 63c for Oc
tober and 24.17c for December during the
early afternoon, or about 4 to 10 points
net lower. The detailed weather report
showed only slight showers at four sta
tions In Texas, however, while tempera

was a shade steadier toward 2 o'clock on

FAST COMPANY FOR

Joe Levy Organizing New Com

Joe Levy is back and has taken up
the lines in the promotion of Chatta
nooga's pugilistic entertainment. Joe's
call home was a mission of sadness,
his father, who had been 111 for some
time, dying the morning after his ar
rival. Shaking off his sorrow and in an ef
fort to forget himself in the work, Levy
is lining up several star attractions for
the summer. First of all, he plans or
ganizing a little right promoting com
pany here that will supply sufficient
backing to bring the best stars to the
local arena. "We have never lost
money on a star," he declares. "That
seems to be the kind of entertainment
Chattanooga wants. It's the mediocre
cards that lose."
Levy's first effort was to secure
Charlie White to face Jack Lawler.
White is entangled some way in his
army relations and cannot come.

TRUTH THAT TESTS THE TIMES
The International Sunday School Lesson for July 14 la "Read

(By William T. Kills.)
Over In Britain a visitor Is impressed
by the remarkable emphasis that l gW
upon the leadership of President Wil
son. It is not In the United States, but
among our allies, that one finds the
clearest recognition of the place that
Ihla modest civilian and ex-school teacher
has made for himself as the Interpreter
and voice of civilisation's highest con
ceptions and convictions. He has ren
dered articulate for all the allied nations
the profoundest sentiments that animate
them In this gigantic struggle. All the
world around. In benighted Russia and
far Caucasia, Woodrow Wilson Is a name
known and trusted and honored.
Whence comes this power and wis
dom? No school of professional diplo
macy trained this man. He Is not wit
nessing the flowering of any deep-sown
plans for world-dominion. No combina
tion of warriors or statesmen has put
him Into his unique position at the fore
front of mankind. Wherein then. Is the
explanation? The answer Is at hand.
President Wilson is a Scripture-saturated
son of the manse. Ills ideals are
those of the Bible. His spirit Is that of
simple Christianity. He has dared to ap
ply the principles of Jesus to Interna
tional relations. The origin of the new
standards of statecraft, and of the es
sential alms of the allied nations in this
war, Is nothing less than the Bible.
Upon this point, of the peculiar
place of the Bible. President Wilson has
put himself clearly and repeatedly on
record. One may find his words hsng
Ing upon the walls of Young Men's
Christian association huts all over
France. Consider the pertinency of this
quotation, from him: "I am sorry for,
the men who do not read the Bible every

This growing hook has a growing j
power in our time. The exnlosion In 1
Europe has blown un or shaken down
many conventional standards. But It
has left the Bible in
new place of in -
fluence. Not merely Is it Vue that the
publication and circulation of Bibles has
been vastly Increased: some of this Is
due to the zeal of home churches which
have not .vet felt . the real impact of
tag war. and some of it is owing to a
genuinely heightened desire to read the
Book. In a more general sense, the
Bible hss come to Its own. The stand
ards now accepted are those most clear
ly taught in the Scriptures.
Before the war, certain material phi
losophies claimed the right to supersede
the old volume. Where are they now?
The chsstenlng experience of these four
years Is driving human hearts away
from fads and innovations and self-In
dulging theories to the simplicities of
the Book which has given us what is
best in our civilization. Self-sacrifice
service of others, high conceptions of
conduct for men and for nations, the
