war had ended and ealm -was once, more restored. The incident,
however, merely shows the extent to which this nation hr.s been
aroused by the program' of rnthlesflies practiced by the Prussian
military body. As a general rule the American stands for fair

While earrying on the war Germany at the same time is flooding
the United States with propaganda designed to cause us endless
trouble. We no longer think of fair play when dealing with the
Hun. Though we do not believe in the practice circumstances
have forced us to meet him on. his same level, to meet ruthlessness
with rnthlessn(s, to attack him in the same manner that he. has
attacked the rest of the world, in a word, to make it so very un
pleasant for him and his that he will be willing to cry quits. It
is safe to say that the day is not far off when tne American peopic
will declare a boycott on Germany, on its language, on its goods
and also on all Germans to which there is attached the slightest sus
picion. Despite the fact that we are a peace loving people, despite
the fact that fair play is one of the characteristics of the the nation,
. despite the fact that we are apt to forget the wrongs of yesterday
when peace is onee more 'declared, the majority of the American
public will be likely to give Germany and Uerman-macie goous

YOU NEVER CAN TELL
THE question of the Hun spy in the United States has reached
a point where one can hardly tell to whom one is speaking.
The opinion has been quite prevalent in this eountry that a spy
was a curious sort of a thing, that he was a person with character
istics that would set him apart, that would direct attention to him
immediately if he attempted to gather information. It became out
pleasure recently to attend the movies with a secret service of
ficial. This official is one that has traveled throughout the United
States and many foreign countries, having been sent abroad by
this government in the pursuit of his duties. He is considered one
of the most successful in his particular line. We don 't know what
i his. business is in Tonopah nor even if he is still here. He came
. along quietly to where we were ieated in the picture show and
took the vacant seat. The picture was "The Spy." And we
watched it with considerable interest. There was one character,
a door tender, who, while the committee was discussing plans, kept
his ears wide open, so to speak. The picture showed this same
man sending the report to his employer later on. It was plainly
evident to all of the audience that the door tender was listening
intentlv and had any of the principal actors in the scene turned
to look for a moment at the door tender it would have been plainly
evident that he had heard- everything.
To the secret service man it seemed a joke. He said the next
.lay that that particular feature ot tne picture naa neen wwrveu
to teach the public the need of wereey and the presence of the spv
in practically all walks of life He then went on to explain that
the well trained spy is a very slippery individual, that he is hard

tals of a systematic, espiouage system on the Pacific coast directed
by a German vice-consul in Mexico, have been laid bare by federal
officials, according to recent dispatches. A sailor was caught. In
his nnssession were naners in the form of a diary. This had to do
with the progress of the war, activities of various sorts in th
I'nited States, the departures, destinations and routes of vessels
sailing from the United States, maps of the San Francisco and the
Seattle harbors and the position and power of coast defenses at
those places. He was engaged in reporting such facts to a German
vice-consul in Mexico from which point the information was evi
dently sent by wireless, to German headquarters. This man is to all
aDDearane.es an ordinary sailor. There are thousands of sailors in
San Franciseo. The average American would never think of look
inr anion them for a spv. And yet this man had been employed
in that capacity for months. The spy is to be looked for every

INFLATION OF THE CURRENCY
ft jr ANY business men in the smaller communities think that Lib-
1V1 erty bonds should circulate as currency and should be made
legal tender. They cannot see any danger in inflating the currency
as long as the United States government accepts such currency in
payment of debU and taxes. This is the greenback theory in
another form, says the New York Commercial. Carried to its
logical conclusion, the best thing for our government to do would
he to pay for everything in paper currency which would cost noth
inf but the printing. The government is probably strong enough

TO KEEP UTILITIES FROril RAILROADS' FATE
O. B. Willcox, vice-president of Bonbrlght & Co., sees that the
country Is dependent on public service corporations for speed and suc
cess in war work and urges greater financial support tor them. In a
recent Hsue of The Annalist he says:
-Time and labor and money saying machinery in the United Stales
must offset the high cost of labor, materials and fuel. Machinery will win
the war time and labor saving machinery: the same machinery and
nothing else, canprotect our trade balances and our gold reserves against
tremendous and destructive losses when the strength of all the world will
enviously reach out for our accumulated capital. fc
"Our public utility systems save more time, labor and fuel, and
therefore, more money, than any machinery in this or any other country.
These savings mean more rapid production and lower manufacturing
costs; that is why the demands upon the public utilities have been
greater than ever before, and that is why we are dependent upon them
for speed and success in preparing for and prosecuting the war.
"The President, in his latest declaration, ays that the achievements
of this year, on the ono side or the other, must determine the issue of
this war, and that the forces that fiht for the freedom of men all over
the world, a well as our own, depend upon us in an extraordinary and
unexpected degree, not only for sustenance, but also for materials by
which men are to live and fight.
"t'nfortunatelj- the capacity of the utility systems is not equal to
the insistent demands for their service, as is everywhere apparent.
"As the breaking down of these systems would be a national calam
ity, o their preservation and their expansion is a national duty which
must 'stimulate the efforts of congress and every patriotic citizen.'. The
danger of the breakdown lies in both the low rates paid for service and
the difficulty of providing funds for payment of expansion demanded by
the public, and maturing obligations.
"Secretary McAdoo, with keen vision of the country's need, has dis
closed both the present necessity for the capital required by the utili
ties as well aa other essential industries, and the remedy, in the 'War
Finance Corporation' which he has proposed in his recommendations to
congress. Tne Din ror tne organization oi mis exigent guvoiuuieui mix
tion gives necessarily broad powers and wide discretion to its directors,
as its critics have pointed out. To forfend grave dangers great powers
must be exercised, and for their functioning must be delegated.
To quote again the president's last declaration, we must win the war.
and 'the achievements of this year on the one side or the other must de
termine the issue.' If we err in our judgment let it be by too great
provision for our needs rather than too little."'
