SWEEPING quarantines and drastic closing orders
both rigidly enforced show that we have traveled a
long distance since the form of influenza which appeared
almost simultaneously in Europe and this country about
1889. and because, of the peculiar nature of the onset was
promptly called the grip, swept the country. At that rime
anything resembling the measures now accepted calmly
would have caused riots.
But drastic as are the measures taken to stop the spread
of the epidemic, nothing, has yet been done which compares
with the steps which were token to stop the epidemic of

about five years ago. Not only were all the stock yards
in the country shut down at that time, but the movement
of live stock on the railroads came to an end and thousands
upon thousands of cattle, many of them blooded animals
worth thousands of dollars each, were killed and dumped
into chemically drenched pits.
In that case the pecuniary loss was carried by a part
only of the public and at the time it.seemed like a grievous
and uncalled for hardship, but time proved that the government
experts who had the courage to apply this drastic
remedy knew what they were about. The farmers, stock
owners, packers and the food consuming public are all
much better off today than they would have been if the
foot and mouth disease had been permitted to run its course
until every herd in the country was infected and the disease
became a constant factor of the live stock industry
of the United States as it actually did become in Central
In the case of the fight against the new form of influenza
the loss is more equally distributed. Today there is scarcely
any one who is not feeling it in some way, but some
day we are going to be sure it was better to handle the
matter firmly than to let it run along. Thousands of lives
may be saved as a result of the willingness of the health
authorites to act just as the situation demands.
Germany's trick peace movement may not, probably
will not,- bring peace immediately, but it doubtless will
have the effect of putting the great German war machine
out of whack. Maximilian's gesture is an admission
of defeat and it is certain to be so interpreted by
the German people. The panic which is reported to
have occurred on the Berlin stock exchange on Saturday
is just the first symptom of the wave of despair which
is going to sweep central Europe.
The -whole world wants peace, but only Germany
wants a peace that will merely be a prelude to another
and a worse war. and that is the real crux to the diplomatic
situation which has been created by the German
peace move. The German government must be modernized
and German armament must be reduced to the
point where it will not be a menace to the world. This
situation may be galling to the German people, but it is
the logical outcome of a policy which put the German
empire outside the pale of civilization.
Marshal Foch is not losing any time in contemplation
of the German peace maneuver and the American people
will do well to follow his example. We should proceed
to show where we stand by redoubling our efforts
in behalf or the Fourth Liberty loan.
Both Governor Cornwell and ex-Covernor MacCorkle,
the latter state Liberty loan chairman, issued appeals
last night for greater efforts on behalf of the loan.
Today the county chairmen and the individual workers
will add their voices and It is to be hoped that the
public will wake up to a realization of the actual situation.
If West Virginia is to maintain its reputation
there will have to be a much more general response
during the next two weeks than three was during the
first week of the campaign. If you have not already
subscribed do so at once and make the subscription as
large as possible.
Prince Max told the Reichstag that he had addressed
his note to Mr. Wilson because of his speech of January
S last in which a program for general peace was outlined.
Prince Max evidently does not understand English
very well. Two of the items in that program are
the evacuation or Russ territory and tne evacuation or
Belgium. And both are to precede any negotiations.
Keep your head no matter if the influenza does become
epidemic here. In the midst of an epidemic
serene minds and high courage are an important prophylactic.

President Keeney Says They
Should Back Up Miners
in the Army.
Local unions throughout District
17. United Mine Workers. have received
the following eloquent letter
making an appeal on behalf of the
fourth Liberty loan:
It becomes our duty to call your attention
to the Mine Workers pledge
to our government in the fourth Liberty
loan drive, each and all of you
are a soldier in the second line of assalt
against the enemy, and each bond
purchased by each of you means supporting
a soldier one month -with service
that may mean the killing of
thirty Hnns. This patriotic effect together
with mining of coal really
means that the mine workers are doing
a double patriotic duty.
Your district organization this
morning purchased $10,000 Liberty
loan bends, and each and every one
of your officials will be requested to
buy a $100.00 bond or moe, and let
us suggest to our members that you
buy at least $100.00 bond for each
member preferably to an average of
$50 bond, this would mean a saving
account to you and in the meantime
be furnishing yonr government with
the necessary funds to protect the sol!
dier in the trenches that are fighting
for the things that we hold nearest
and dearest to our hearts, namely:
"Liberty and Democracy."
In purchasing this $100.00 bond,
some of you may feel that it, means a
sacrifice to you, but O God, how little
a sacrifice it means against the supreme
sacrifice that your brothers and
ours are'making on the battle front
to secure the things for us that we
bespeak so much, "democracy," in
these trying hours of sacrifice of the
American soldiers on the battle front.
It is yonr imperative duty to sacrifice
and stint In order to protect
them until it hurts!
There are over sixty thousand members
of our organization in the
trenches in France now offering their
life, the supreme sacrifice to establish
the -very principals for which
our organization stands for. we have
repeatedly said to our government
that the Mine Wokers would not be
found wanting, and now it 17 up to
each of you to make those statements
true.. The time is at hand when wo
are going to be able to count the
real red-blooded United Mine Workers,
of America that will back the principals
for which this great institution
! of ours stands for. there must not he
| and there shall not be any of our
j members crumble, totter and fall, re]
member the price of liberty is eternal
; vigilance against the Hun.
j -So let us all stand up and be
