Face the Truth.
By force of habit, doubtless,
the theory seems to survive
among many Republican spokes
men that President Wilson's ad
ministration can be discredited
by misrepresentation. One evi
dence lies in the effort being
made to arouse sentiment in the
business community by dwelling
in every advertising medium
they can reach upon the in
creases of imports under the
Underwood Tariff Law, notwith
standing the European War. The
effort is bound tofail for a very
simple reason the facts riddle
it.
In their "tariff publicity," the
Republican partisans ignore the
enormous increases of exports
because these show the unpre
cedented prosperity of the coun
try. Also, they do not analyze
the imports. If they did both,
they would discover the increase
of imports is wholly due to the
fact that the U. S. is drawing
upon all parts of the earth to se
cure the materials from which to
manufacture the vast -quantities
of supplies of all sorts which oth
er nations, both belligerents and
neutrals, need at this time. Huge
though it be, the domestic sup
ply of many of these raw mater
ials is not adequate to supply the
demand, and hence foreign raw
materials are being brought in
to augment the domestic supply.
That such is the situation clear
ly appears from new statistics
on the subject just issued by the
Department of Commerce. By
reducing or removing entirely
the tariffs on many essential raw
materials tae Underwood Tariff
Act greatly aided American man
ufacturers in meeting the new
foreign demands upon them.
Thus millions upon millions of
dollars have been drawn into
this country in payment of the
service rendered by American
labor and capital in manufactur
ing these imported raw mater
ials into articles desperately
needed by the outside world.
mi
rne conclusion ousmess men
will draw is obvious: The tariff
should not be changed unless
conditions change, and then
should be readjusted only upon
the advice of experts. The lat
ter contingency is provided
against by President Wilson's
recommendation for the creation
of a tariff commission.

How Justice is Perverted.
''It's a d-d good thing I played
crazy for I saved my life by do
ing it," were the first words
spoken since May 11 by David
Edwards' who was tried and
found guilty of the murder of
Willis Combs last week by a
Perry county jury and sentenced
to life imprisonment.
The killing took place May 10.
The next day Edward's wife
visited him in the jail and from
that day to the hour the jury
found him guilty Edwards had
not spoken a word either to fel
low prisoners in jail or to any of
the officers in charge of him.
His attorneys pleaded insanity
and several physicians pro
nounced him insane and declar
ed that his organs of speech
were paralyzed. When the ver
dict was returned his voice sud
denly was restored he gave ut
terance to the remark above
quoted.

Mob Threatened Pastor.
A mob of 2,500 angry men and
women in the Italian quarter of
Denver, Col., surrounded the
Methodist Italian mission and
threatened to lynch the Rev.
Francesco P. Sulmonetti, who is
alleged to have stated that the
inhabitants of the Italian quarter
of Denver live in sdualor equal to
that of the Eastsiders of New
York. For four hours the pas
tor was barricaded in his church
while the angry crowd circulated
outside, armed with clubs, and
provided with a rope with which
they threatened to hang the di
vine. The Rev. Mr. Sulmonetti was
finally rescued by a squad of po
liceman and a committee of Ital
ians. The women in the crowd
are said to have been more rabid
than the men. They were more
outspoken and were all armed
with clubs and rocks.

How the Flag Was Hade.
The making of the first nation
al flag was under the personal di
rection of Congress. Mrs. Bet
tie Ross was carrying on an up
holstering business in Philadel
phia, and to her went Washing
ton and the committee. They
asked her if she could make a
flag according to a pencil draw
ing made by Gen. Washington.
She answered that she was will
ing to try. The stars in the
drawing made by Washington
had six points, after the English
fashion. Mrs. Ross suggested
that stars with five points would
be more symmetrical and more
pleasing to the eye, and she
showed the committee how such
a star could be made by folding
a piece of paper and making the
pattern by a single cut of the
shears. Her suggestion was ac
cepted and the flag was finished
the next day. From that time
to the present the stars on all
American flags have been five
pointed stars, while the stars on
the United States coins have six
points.
