The day before the Fourth Liberty pi closed Secretary McAdoo announced that Sl'itf/tbe $6,000,000,000 had been spent, at alarge part of $640,000,000 was wasted. jt is expected the report of the investigation of department by Charles ?.

This country got into the war to smash the Beast/^ In the background, of course, there is a strong legal argument in support of our case, but that is the real explanation. If we could decide the terms ourselves they most certainly would make it sure that the Germans, collectively and individually, are compelled to. be good for at least a century. but out of deference to our allies we were net as a people attempting to set down the exact terms. Now that j public opinion in Europe, thanks to the new relevlations, is again setting against any softness toward Germany, the i character of the peace may be regarded as settled. o YOUR BUSINESS.

But it may be that Germany really is at the end of its resources now. We shall soon know. Judging by the tone of that long screed In The Times this morning; in the minds of Democratic newspapers and poHtdans Socialists are men of some lesser degree of merit with whom other men come in contact only at the peril of losing caste.

But before these elements enter into a man's life he should have clearly shaped in mind a goal, a well defined objective toward which his energies will be directed. It may mean the accumulation of a' certain sum. the attainment of a coveted position, the accofhplishment of noteworthy vocational or professional prowess?but it should be based upon individual effort no matter what itsnature. Everyone of us should certainly and eagerly dedicate the major part of two decades to intensive work, purposeful application. The degree of success resultant depends upon the foresight and vision which chose and planned the career. Talents, inclination, education and pecuniary needs each and all should be considered in the selection of one's lifework. But once the field of endeavor is decided upon, when the die is cast, let nothing deflect you from die 1 charted course, hew straight to the line, make departures only after mature deliberation. Pay attention to your business and it will return the compliment. o Put the war on a non-partisan basis by electing a Republican Congress. Every government with which the United States is allied has done that, and was made all the better for doing it. ; o I The Democrats who want unconditional surrender have a sure way to get it open to them: put the Republican party in control of the next Congress. That will mean Senator Henry Cabot Lodge at the head of the committee on foreign relations of the Senate. The peace terms will have to suit that committee or they don't "go." There is no doubt as to how he stands. o Editor George Harvey says that the votors of the country now have the opportunity to disinfect Congress. Inducting, of course, cleaning "the" Kltchin. o ? Anything less than the election of Major Davis Elkins and the -six Republican nominees for the House of Repreesntatives from West Virginia might throw the control of the next Congress to the Democrats. Remember California, also, that the Senate, now controlled by the Democrats by eight votes, is almost bound to be very close. The present Congress is closer than that between the two parties in the House. O Why. Is the report of Charles Evans Hughes being withheld? Senator Dodge says "the American people can stand to have the trnth told them." Emperor William is reported to hare said in a speech that the German people shall be the freest people in the ia fit i ~j^"-*tfr^yTVMli 'l*1 *>'- > ?<^y, "fl^-' xjootod at tkWfag of &? attfcb.

GERMANY began this war four years ago with the confident expectation that it would end in a complete tnmnph for German arms. No allowances whatever were made for a possibility of a defeat or even a compromise peace. As a result die German armies and die German ruling class generally waged war upon the assumption that no one Teutonic would ever be called upon to stand responsible for anything that was done, no matter how wrong legally or revolting to die moral sense it might be. Bat it toned bat die other way, and it ought to point a moral for governments of the future, and especially for war colleges and general staffs, that at die very time when Germany most needs the good will of the world a fresh crop of atrocity stones is coming to light, thanks to die forced withdrawal of the German /umies from Belgium ??<1 TtnrtU*hi Prance.

Just about enough politics to make two weeks red hot and get ont the vote. If it had been dragged ont over two months the voters would have refused to go to the polls on election day because they were sore on the whole proposition. | I tl MONONGALIA MUSINGS ill. . ??lj General Sherman described J I the horrors of war la oae Drier sen-: | tence. not found in ethical works. J Voltaire, in brilliant language, painted the destructive work of the same agency. All normal mipds contemplate it with shuddering sensations and rightly defend and nphold it when -as the present case-the liberty and happiness of nations are at stake It is a pleasure to note, that in the midst cf the cares, griefs, tears and woes that constitute a share of the sacr.iices made by aur own people, in the present conflict, there gleams forth at times sparkling specimens of purest humor. Abovo the dark clouds of war the raiabow of wit oft illuminates a weary world. As an : instance we cite this from a western ! journa'.: "The Kaiser says be Is dls-; | posed to be forgiving and generous i | toward Germany's enemies. He has j no idea yet how generous he is going to be." * * The old recipe for rabbit pie cpens w;Ji the explicit statement "first catch your rabbit," and in considering the earthly carreer of Bilious Bill of Berlin, it Js, of course, necessary that he be caught before details of his punishment be arranged. Assuming, however, that, the viefnrirtnc Alllea are never going to cap ture him and that he will spend his days in some rural retreat where he can contemplate unmolested, the awful destruction and despair his wicked in wanton war has brought upon the world, we can indulge the pleasant fancy of selecting from the literature of the world a blistering .phrase or a scorching Terse that will accurately describe his horrible condition. Our limited acquaintance with classical love renders the field, where selections are made rather narrow, but those who Are more fortunate in their accomplishments will favor your readers with many appropriate quotations that will describe and define the arch criminal of the ages. Let us have them by the score. That y? editor will contribute a few . Is devoutly to be wished. That Evening Chatter and the Ruff Staffer will gladlyl seize this glorious opportunity to add to the joy of nations, goes without saying.
