Philadelphia Record. - ITEMS OFINTEREST Dependable Carson City Daily Appeal is the real live advertising medium of this section as evidenced by its carrying a larger amount of advertising than any paper it the city. REVIVING AN OLD FALSEHOOD A falsehood that has been systematically exploited for more than a year is revived in a Paris despatch to the New York Tribune: France holds England and America greatly to blame for what she considers a bungling of the peace. In the first place, France was op posed to what she regarded as a premature armistice, as she wanted to push right on to Berlin. In the second place, sire favored complete disarmament of the enemy. France was not opposed to the .armistice. On the contrary, the French were eager for the armistice, and Marshal Fosh compelled the British to modify the original naval terms lest the armistice as a whole should be so severe that the Germans would reject it. Nor did the FreneKduring the armstice negotiations ever make a demand for the "complete disarmament of the enemy." On the contrary, they framed the military terms themselves and could have made them still more drastic if they had wished, in compliance with President Wilson's provision that the terms of the armistice should be sucli as to make a resumption of war impossible. After the armistice was signed and it was discovered that Ltfd tndorff had cleverly masked the military collapse of Germany, an anti-Wilson propaganda was established in Paris to make it appear that the president was responsible for having forced an unfavorable armistice upon the reluctant British and French. New York World. . i oo COMING INCREASED ILLITERACY The commissioners of educations of nine states recently met in New York City for a solemn conclave. All agreed that the teaching profession is in peril. Teachers continue to resign, normal school attendance declines. Pupils in increasing numbers are ceasing to be taught, or if taught, then on half-time. Thus in New York state the shortage of teachers is more than 5,000, and between. January 28 and February 17, 23,000 pupils in New York City were sent home owing to lack of teachers and jualified substitutes. The logic of this record, and it is smybolical of the country, is plain. Unless the citi zens who pay taxes act, then illiteracy, inadequate mental and moral training, and unintelligent political action are to increase. If so, then look out for the deluge. The "acid test" of a real American patriot today is not what he thinks about the Russian situation, or about industrial democracy, or about the League of Nations. It is, whether he wants an educated electorate in the republic of tomorrow, and children and yotith in his home who have informed and trained minds. The only way he can prove his desire for an educated democracy is by paying more taxes and then seeing to it that he gets what he pays for. Even the extra taxation may become nominal if superfluities and excres cences in family life and school administration are inhibited and prohibited. ) ' op FAVORS PRIVATE OWNERSHIP One million foreign-born laborers have left the United States for Europe since the armistice. Spain has over 4,000,000 acres of olive trees. . It is proposed to make May 1 "American Day" to counteract the Bolshevik uses made of that day in this country. mm A five billion ton coal field has been discovered in the southern part of South America. Japanese labor in Hawaii has been instructed from Japan not to work for white planters. The Japanese strikers have destroyed many valuable sugar cane plantations. The hotise of representatives spent, forty-five minutes recently in a roll call to determine whether a representative would be recognized for one minute to read a telegram. Two hundred and ten thousand women of the British Isles were widowed as a result of the war. . It seems to be the consenusus of serious opinion that although we live in a wonderful agg there has as yet been discoA-ered no sub stitute for work. The world's clover seed supply, which formerly came from Ger- manv. will this vear come trom Lanarta. m m The mayor of Nome, Alaska, suggests that one-third of the rein deer of that country be killed yearly to supply cheap meat for every body in the United States and that game laws be lifted accordingly. Half a million children are fatherless in Serbia. The American Food Relief commission has also official reports of hundreds of people who lived during the last year of the war entirely on roots and stems of maize. Socialism is not only the concept of Jewish minds, but its fore most theoreticians and executants are also Jews. Where there are Jews, Socialism is dormant; where there are most, there is persecu-,J tion? as in Russia, and this breeds Socialism, declares Austin Har rison, an English writer. 0 "Bankers withholding credit for a higher rate of interest are patriots; workingmen withholding labor against a Reduction of wages are anarchists." The Commonweal. In every respect is our line of staple and fancy . . Groceries . . Quality of the highest and prices unexcelled. A. G. TT 7T Mev ers We Are Offering As we get it, Mr. Hoover has been a Republican, but is trying to live it down. Little Rock Arkansas Gazette. John Barton Pavne, chairman of the U. S. shipping board says "The question of the sale of the ex-German passenger ships really involves government ownership or private ownership. "My conviction is that the government ought not to operate passenger ships, that they should be operated by private persons under the American ilag, that we never can get more tor these ex German. ships than now. As rates go down ana snips increase prices will drop. "The government should not be required to spend $75,000,000 to re-condition these ships, because: (a) The ships will not be worth it to the government, and (b) They cannot be operated by the government without serious loss, and after they are operated for a time the country will grow tired of paying the expense, and the merchant marine will be discredited. In my view, the question or national policy should be re solved in favor of placing these ships under private ownership from the beginning. This is the only way to make a merchant ' marine possible.". QO FIXING UP MINING TAXES For weeks conferences between the internal revenue depart ment and large copper' companies have been taking place in Wash ington relative to tax matters, and there will eventually be deter mined a basis upon which the copper companies may figure their income taxes. Just .what should be allowed in determining depletion charges has been the principal bone of contention. This much appears certain: Practically all of the copper com panics will be called upon to pav to the government additiona amounts in taxes. This taxation problem as it relates to industry is a whole lot like the story of the goose that laid the golden eggs in the effort to collect all the business can bar industry may be brought to the non-productive stage. The metal mining industry of the west is dangerously close to this point today. MEXICO'S TRADE As an example of the trade that America and Mexico have had with each other, and the comparisons thn figures here given reveal statistics for the year of 1910, the last year that can be called norma in Mexican trade because of the internal difficulties the country'ha experienced since that time, are as follows: Mexico imported from: United States 11 2,000,000 Great Britain 22.000,000 I Germany 20,000,000 France - 17,000,000 All other countries. 20,000,000 Mexico exported to: United States .". $196,000,000 Great Britain 28,000,000 Glermany 8,000,000 France .... - 12,000,000 .
