IN Washington state the Bull Moose has became a true
vamoose, with no possibility of returning.
A famous New York restaurant has been closed. A

THE Allies are fired by two hopes, paradoxical indeed.
One is that the kaiser will soon lose his grip; the other that he
wont soon lose his grippe.
FREEZING weather in Belgium adds terribly to the suf
fering of the straving thousands. Cordovans should respond
generously to the call for help.
I III LA DEI J’HIA has sent one shipload of food to Belgium
and is almost ready to send another. The City of Brotherly
Love has proved title to its name.
THIS morning’s steamer brought considerable Christmas
mail and many a person was made happier by being the recip

1 he Daily Times, which is expending considerable money and
energy to give Cordova an up-to-date newspaper.
I RESIDENT WILSON sees the great need of charting
Alaskan waters and putting a check upon the fatal wrecks.
Nearly everybody except congress recognizes the imperative

II begins to look as though the weather man has no inten
tion of giving us a reason for celebrating the new year by act

one sodden disappointment after another
fill’s far this winter there has boon no need of rotaries
along the line of the Copper River railway and for the benefit
<>f Valdez we might state that the road is open and the trains
are running regularly and beating schedule time.
I HE DAILY rl IMES has been called upon to answer the
question: “It a gentleman accompanies a lady home four
times is she justified in thinking In* has serious intentions?”
None of our business, but why can’t the hopeful ladv wait and
THERE are few towns in Alaska, or anywhere else for
that matter, where the* theatre attendance, per capita, is larger
than in Cordova. But there’s a reason. Manager Lathrop
produces the best films obtainable and the public shows its ap
preciation by a liberal patronage.
GEORGE CARl'ENTIER, the French boxing champion, is
now in that great class of which both champions and “has
boons” are members. He is “broke.” War did it. Lil
Artha’ Johnson arrived at the same end by the chicken and
champagne route, and Bat Nelson through speculation.

WHILE the cableship Burnside is playing hide and seek
on Puget Sound the cable is out of commission within a short
distance of Cordova with no probability of the break being re
paired until that ship can he located and readies Prince Wil

having a cableship stationed in Alaskan waters, ready for any
I HE local Loyal Order of Moose has issued invitations to
all of the people of Cordova to attend their Christmas exercises
at Eagle Hall on Friday afternoon. One of the features will be
a ( liristmas tret* and a visit from Santa Claus, with a gift for
every child in town. This is a most philantrophic and commen

CORDOVA is certainly progressive, as is evidenced by
one of the churches holding its Sunday services in a down-town
theatre. Times do change, as the philosophers long have philo
sophized. It hasn’t been a great while since such a proposal
would have been accepted with pious scoffing, even if a man
might have been found daring enough to suggest it. In some
of the cities in the states they hold services between perform
ances. The movement is toward taking the church to the
crowd, instead of waiting for the cruwWto come to the church.

A W HI PKR in the December Forum says that as far as
sex problems are concerned mankind is no better off now than
it was in the dawn of history, and with no particularly bright
prospects for the future. He argues for easy divorce as one of
the possible avenues to betterment- One can find in the history
of savage tribes a great deal to convince him that the shedding
of clothing might help some, too. It would be rather ineon
venient and uncomfortable to do so just now, but we can begin
by discarding the plainly non-essential, and invest the savings
in food for the Belgians and work for the unemployed.
