WASHINGTON. D. C.. Oct. 6? r
There are a lot of people who have the ] 1;
uoelusiou that tsar has put politics out] c
of business, but they are not politi-! 1:
cians. They belong to the other fifty-1 J
six varieties of American mankind, j s
Nothing has ever happened yet, not j d
even the world gone war crazy, that j s
has been able to erase lronj a politi- i 11
cian's tnind the lulling thoughts and j li
crafty schemes of politics. The war; 1
has merely put the dimmer on the con- 1;
versation. because it is now the most i'
important business of everybody and 1 tt
must be attended to first. The game 1 c
of polittcs goes on just the same, but j it
it is not so vocal anil boisterous us in ' p
normal times. It's war politics, and ] c
that means a mixture of the regular.t
brand with business, getting commis- y
sions aud contracts, locating canton- c
ments, and a million and one other a
things which go in this get-rich-qutck j n
ration of pulling, hauling and perspir-I c
tng patriots. In times like these there h
are untold and heretofore unheard of j
epportunities for men to acquire great it
riches and political honors at one and I p
the same time. j t

Wrest in the subject." Josephtis Dan- J r
ieis would have done the same thing i
in a like circumstance, and likely will o
do it later on, when bis turn comes i
to bo written up as working toward the v
presidential goal. Likewise, William F
Glbbs McAdoo, the President's angular e
son-in-law. For their turn is bound t
to come. In inner circles where po- t
litical planning goes along quietly with P
the noiser planning for war. and where
the star chamber gossip of politics pro- P
ceeds unendingly, the putative prcsi- a

a number of others, are morselB of r
chatter masticated with enthusiasm, v
In these pattering parties, they refer b

numerable signs that the Speaker "

working to that end. What he wants, ii
need it be said, is what he practically c
had on 30 ballots at the Baltimore con- 1

candidates, the consensus of opinion c
right now is that Champ Clark will cer t

In the pastime know it, but that
ocsn't prevent them continuing their

ang-standing habit?and so it goes on.
'he amazing thing about it is that one
ears little in the talk of the posslbilty?indeed,
the probability?of this
nusual war producing unusual politial
results. Wars have made presidents
aany a time before, and war may reeat
its president-making history. The

What People Say
And Some Side Remarks
A newspaper printed by American
soldiers now in France is called Soixante
Trois. which means sixty-three, 1
the number of the Red Cross section coa
which publishes it. It is minieo- tie
graphed and contains this Item In re- nee
gard to aerial warfare written by one one
of the boys: \
"The nirplanes are most bother- doc
some at nights. Have'you ever all\
been in Jersey and seen the mos- |)re
quitoes? Well, that's the way thr
they are here, only worse. They tea
drop their bombs everywhere. j.-jS
in the soup. In your tobacco. On cor
your beds and even in your boots an,
when vo utahe them off at night jjlt
The boys in the trenches are safe |,a\
compared with us. They don't ^
have to drive along road? with ^
shells bursting every inch. Many jjle
is the time I've lit a cigarette and wa,
held the match for the wind of j
a passing shell to put out." t]e
Officers or men at Camp Mills whose .
nervous systems would easily be dis- .
rupted bv warfare are to be weeded *'
out and "it Is likely that the same
ruurpe will dh luuuwcu bl uu Lamps. - .
A "high officer" is quoted as saying: 1
"Such men must he eliminated up
because of the effect it has on wlt
their comrades. Shell shock ?
should not be confused wtih nervous
breakdown but men sus- J
ceptlble to disorganization of
their nervous system are the
more liable to shell shock."
Earl Anthony, who says he is
a minister, Is one of the "conscientious
objectors" at Camp
Grant at Rockford, III. He says:
"I talked it over with God and
God told me not to do it. I would
not double cross God."

'AIRMOXT. Oct. 8?| Editor The
st Virginian]?In an editorial publied
In your paper on Tuesday ot
? week, you attacked Adjutant ?,
nernl Bond for the effort he was
kinr to nrnvnnt th.
_ r...vU( luu a iiob ntav
ginta regiment from being dls- _ ,
ided. In this editorial you ridleulhis
efforts and said that the See1
West Vlrglnln Regiment had fl- "l
y* been "the pet of the Head Adnlstration."
Feeling crrtrin ns I
that this Is untrue. I feel It my
ty to reply to this attack on Gan
I Bond. ?
nstead of being unfriendly to the
st West virRlnia regiment. Gen
I Bond has done nil In hit power
> past two years to keep the re (tint
from being disbanded. Had he
owed tho advice frotn tho War dotmcnt
the Klrst would have been
banded several years ago; but he
isldered the wishes of the otflccrs
1 men.cl' the First and did not
band the regiment. Instead he
de every elTort to persuade the
ir department to allow the State I
West Virginia credit for two rogi- "
nts. As long as General llond bad
authority tho First regiment was
, disbanded, but as soon as he had
voice in the matter, tho regiment
s scattered to the Four Winds of
aven. That shows, l think, whelh- }|
General Bond was friendly or not
the Flrsl West Virginia regimenf.
leneral Bond has nlso been crltled
by the West Virginian for not
ling tho First regiment lor servico m
the Mexican border. The Colonel II
the Second West Virginia was the I
tlor Colonel and his 1 /imont was
itled to the preference flnlv one
inicut could be culled and General I
ill simply followed mllltr.ry law In
ling the Senior regiment. ! I
'he writer hue been for some time
the stuff of the Adjutant Ceneral ,
this State and can testify that
neral Bond has worked liard to
ng the National Guard of West Vlrla
up to a high state of elflelency.
t-refore I think It uncalled for and
ust for a newspaper of this Stata i
criticize hltn unfairly. JJ
