Soldiers who returned on the Leviathan last Friday related that a raiding party of wounded Amori- can soldiers wrecked an English music hall to avenge an alleged In- suit to the United States. The In- cldent occurred just before they left Base Hospital No. 29, in St Ann's road, Tottenham, London, They said an offensive comment on America was mado by a typical British comedian, who was paired in a sketch in the Woodgreen Em- quarts of beor. Why not bo reason piro Theator with a travesty on au 'ablo and allow four and a halt American negro. As Private Jo- quarts of the former and twenty seph Gottlieb, of No. 167 Fifth and a half quarts of the ,attr? avenue, Brooklyn, a member of Florida babies also need alcohol Company C, 106th Infantry, de- baths every day.

There was a crippled American soldier in the audience that night who told his companions in the hospital what had been said. They decided to make an issue of It in their own fashion. All asked for liberty for the next evening for a theater party, and about 250 wore given passes. Private Robert Hlnes, of the 131st Infantry, who formerly was employed on the Chicago 'Her- aid, .said the party bought up all.to low stens and stilted recentlon the spoiled fruit and decayed eggs rooms. That they are regretting In the neighborhood, adding: their return to a likelihood of such "They wont to the show In a'a ufe aa ante-bollum days held for noay.

There Is recital, as a group of other dough-no rcas0n why the new woman boys shouted corroboration f rom ' si10Uid not be the mother of chll their bunks in the sick bay. The dren indeed there ls every reason Brooklyn soldier explained: why a self-supporting woman "The house was in an uproar, si,ould most joyfully welcome a and our boys charged down tho 'child that she can herself support, aisles to the stage Many were so Dut f0r their own sovereignty as badly wounded that they couldn't modest, gentle and beautiful women, climb alone.

We told ...t p ti.. 4i, n..uf.ii them they lied about their nation-1 accomplishments and tender phll allty, and that if it was a Joke It;OSophies that lift them to that was one of those exhibitions of motherhood blessed by the beautiful peculiar British humor that we couldn't get. A bunch of Tommies swarmed down to defend them and we had one hot time. Finally the show broke up and we loft. Next day tho manager complained to the hospital commander. He posted a notice that was a reprimand and a compliment. It said any man who visited the theater again would do so at tho risk of courtmartial and that such a resort waB no fit place for an American soldier." SAVE THROUGH YEAR. "Stenographers ought to know something besides stenography. They ought to be able to take care of a house and to know how to cook. All their science or knowl edge need not come out of the tips of their fingers." In this striking way Archbishop Glennon, of St. Louis, emphasized his point that working people should know some thing else besides their special trades or lines of work. Speaking of what a workingman does with his money, Archbishop Glennon as sailed the tendency "to spend money as fast as one makes it." "The idea seems to be," he said, "that one must live up to his sal ary, and that ls false in principle, for It violates prudence and fore sight. Do you expect the world will owe you a living In old ago, wnen you have squandered all you have made in other days? You say, How are people to save money to day when they can not earn enough to attend? Well. I don't know about fhat. T Vnow. In fact I Vnow from I experience and observation, that there Is scarcely any salary today from which something can not be saved. It all depends on the way you live. Nor does it require ex cessive self-denial. The tendency to reach up to the point where every cent that is made is to be spent is hostile to the well being of society." , The Archbishop advised his hear ers to start a wiving aceeuat and get some inauraaee m leading to thrift aad fOMtloa hi declining years.

The New York World recently printed this rather amusing letter about prohibition In Florida: L,i,i n env 4hft iwint. Wo aiB0 passed at tho present session making that State 'dry, but with this proviso: That on and aftor Jan uary 1 next, nossesslon of more than four ouarts of whisky or more than twenty quarts1 of beer by any one person shall be a misdemeanor. 'Drunkenness is punishablo by a flno of ?500 or a years Imprisonment, Great la Prohibition, and hypocrisy is its prophet!" Apparently virtuous Florldlans are determined not to become too noiy, it is a Dit oiiucuu, xoo, 10 unaer stand why each person Is limited to four quarts of whisky and twenty ' ,1n . , Ai,, nf nvlirv every day of every month of every year enough to keep all the bacu teeth in Florida afloatf Has prohi bition vindicated Itself once again or is the correspondent of the World Joking? OUR WOMEN WARRIORS. Plainly In many cases peace brought its disappointments. Our women entered so wholly lntp tho war, there was such a need of them, that by it they were alto gether emancipated irom the old TMtttenat nollcles that kont them them ls too plain to be seen, and what tho future home Is going to be and how balanced is a matter of a very chesty Interrogation point. Many of our young women have BieSsed Mother who ls all loving and gentle and all powerful. FOR WOMAN'S EYE. An era of new colors Is undoubt edly approaching. Women are leaping from uni forms into medieval gowns. Lace collars and blouse collars are not worn over coat suits. Necklaces have returned to fash- Ion, and the most favored ones are not of precious stone?. The new docolletage prophesied weeks ago Is coming into view as smart women exploit it. Of the black evening gown we see little nowadays. Brown Is in evidence after nightfall. A smart purse ls of navy blue morocco leathor, lined with tan moire silk, and has a clasp of sil ver. Tho straight frock of Jersey may be simplicity Itself, but it should have somewhere a touch of rich ness. Among the housewife's New Year resolutions one most frequently made Is In favor of keeping house hold accounts. Even whpn it la fashionable to wear the hair parted, don't wear it that way unless It is becoming to you. The prettiest boudoir slippers Imaginable of the shape known as mules aro covered with exquisitely painted white leather. Recently women have begun to realize that there ls something they have even greater need of keeping track of than their cash, and that ls their time. INDL1NAFOLIS.

Major Gen. iBarnett arrived homo on the Leviathan and Insists his boys are the best of all. Ho is justly proud of hiB men, as their deeds will bo remembered. PEACE CONFERENCE EARLY. Cablegrams from 'Paris say ex changes have been going on with a view to the assembling of tho Inter allied conference on January 12. It has been known that President Wilson was extremely desirous of as early a beginning of the con ference as possible and that 'his in fluence was being exerted to this end. RELEASE OF IRISH PRISONERS. An appeal to tho Tribunal of Na tions which will sit at Versailles was mado by the New York County Board of the Ancient Order of Hi bernians this week and resolutions were adopted asking an opportunity for tho Irish people to vote on their desired form of government. The following demand was also made: "We demand, in the Interest of outraged justice, that tho Irish men and women who have been illegally deported to England and held there In prison, unlndlcted and untried, bo released forthwith and that tho British army of occupation be withdrawn." TID3 FERE OF LIBERTY. The firo of American liberty ia burning In tho hearts of our people, even though it shows dim on tho pages of many papers more devoted to bread and beer than to lofty ideals. Throughout tho length and breadth of the country an impulso littio short of Divine is urging men and women of all classes, ranks and creeds to foregather In huge throngs, both to protest their devotion to freedom and to demand liberty for oppressed nations. This sign of our sincerity, this symbol of our unself ishness in behalf of other peoples is tho most consoling feature of the after-war period. America went to battle that domocracy might not perish from the earth, but rathor might bo extended to all lands whore peoplo sat in the darkness of tyranny and ate the sodden bread of near,-despair. And now that tho flush of victory Is fresh upon them, Americans have come together by scores of thousands to send their encouraging voices across the seas to nations less fortunate than them selves. This is the significance of the Jewish throngs, this ls the mean ing of the throngs upon throngs of citizens of Irish birth or extraction. The Jews and the Irish are op pressed and they must bo set free to live the full lives of upstanding men, to enjoy the natural, inalienable right of every nation, freedom. The nature of these meetings ls such that the Governments and tho be spottcd coteries of capitalists who are attempting to belittle or thwart tKem had better step surer before It ls too late. Tho passion that ls now loose has never suffered a seri ous and enduring check from auto crats or soulless captains of indus tries. Thwarted here, it has turned there, and finally, vexed and harassed too much, it has turned Into a mighty anger that consumed Its persecutors. And why not Shall tho selfishness of a few deprive a cation of the exercise of an inalien able natural right? Never. Shall prejudice or filthy lucre, coined from the tears and blood of widows and orphans, stand In tho way of legitimate national aspirations? Tho Irish are right, they should and must havo freedom. Their souls are worth more to them and to tho world than English fish or English mutton or English aristocracy. Tho Irish in America are right, too, en tirely right in pressing this matter on the American Government at a tme when so many of their sons and brothers. American citizens, are being brought from the battlefields of Europo to New York, helpless, God pity them, from wounds re ceived in freedom's cause. Tho Irish problem is now tho world's problem, our problem In a special way, for America struck the final blow that won the war. American boya of Irish blood did not give eye or hand or foot that tho home of their fathers and mothers might bo still further exploited by England. And what of tho American boys of Irish, extraction dead on the battle fields of Franco? Did they die that Ireland might be still further crushed? We shall see. Now ls Ireland's time; the sym pathy of the great throbbing heart of tho working world is with her. It ls Ireland's time to shake her gyves till the whole world rings with the horrid sound, to lift her voice again and again in demand for justice, until England learns that a dangerous tide is rising fast, and it Is rising rast. And Ireland, not England, i atop of the water with peoples of all races and classes and tanks and creeds, political and otherwise, for this to a question, not of raee or clase or rank or creed, political or otherwise, but of ele mental justice. And the problem is: Ireland has a right to freedom and Ireland must have freedom. America.
