MOSE LEWIS DEPARTMENT STORE THINKS THE PUBLIC SHOULD KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON Senator Frelinghuysen of New Jer sey, believes that the public should be kept informed of the war moves. In appearing before the senate com mittee to express his views on the censorship bill, the senator came out flat-footed for pitiless publicity. He said : "This is not a one man war; this is not a one party war; this is not the president's war nor the war of the war department or the navy de partment. This is a war of the Am erican people, and every American citizen is called upon or will be call ed upon to render the highest de gree of service of which he or she is capable toward a successful issue of this supreme struggle. Such being the case, every citizen of the repub lic has the right to know the facts, and that right I sustain. Uses President's Words "Of the many remarkable expres sions to which the chief magistrate of the nation, a past master in the art of word painting, has given ut terance none has so strongly com mended itself to me as 'pitiless pub licity.' Upon more than one occa sion the president has reiterated his belief in that doctrine, in the enun ciation of which he awakened a re sponsive echo in every American heart. "I appreciate the importance, the absolute necessity, of concealing from the enemy certain facts apper taining to the movements of our land and naval forces and therefore the withholding from general circulation of news which might prejudice our cause, but I denounce that mawkish and stupid doctrine that the people of America must be kept in total ig norance of every material fact bear ing upon the preparations for war and the prosecution of it when every loyal citizen of the nation, with his heart ablaze with patriotic ardor, is waiting, alert, vigilant and expect ant,^ for some news which will keep his soul on fire and his enthusiasm up to the highest possible pitch. Praise for Northdiffe "During the first year of the great world war the British nation mud dled along, ineffective, nonprogres sive, demoralized, always on the de fensive. Today she is the dominant power among the continental nations and with the material aid of Amer ica will eventually save humanity and civilization from the despotism which the mad monarch of central Europe seeks to superimpose upon the world. "And what has brought about this remarkable transformation? Nothing but the pitiless publicity of the great newspapers controlled by Northdiffe, which overturned cabi nets, evolved order from chaos and placed the destinies of the British nation and the civilization of the world in the keeping of the greatest Europeans—Lloyd Lord modern of George."

It will not be forgotten that Judge Ailshie hit the Republi can party a blow under the belt at a time when all good Republicans should have put their shoulders to the wheel. He charged that certan sinister but powerful influences wer at work within the ranks of the Re publican party to grab the resources of the state for the benefit of indi viduals or corporations. From all over the state there went up a de mand for specific information, a de mand that the judge should name the man or men who were guilty of the things be charged. He never gave any information whatever though continuing to charge that what he said was true. When nothing ever came of his charges the majority of the people came to the conclusion that he really did not have any auch knowledge he had claimed to have and that he put out the statement with the de as lil)er ate intent to injure his party for ■ rea sons best known to himself. By his attitude he lost the political friendship of many who had hitherto been his loyal supporters. He will find the feeling against him hard to overcome and it is extremely doubt ful if he can "come back."—Nampa Leader-Herald. b«Ulr. Liniment . Th. many time«, its coat. Get Rid of Your Rheumatism. Now is the time to get rid of your rheumatism. You will find Cham GERMANY IN BITTERLY AH NAILED BY SECRETARY LANE (Continued from p«|« ou) that Germany wouid do what aha aald ahe would do upon the aeaa. Hear Wall of Children We atlll hear the piteoua cry of children coming up out of the where the Luaitanla went down. And Germany haa never naked forgive i ness of the world. We aaw the Sussex aunk, crowded with the aona and daughters of neu tral nations. We saw ship after ship sent to the bottom—ships of mercy bound out of America for the Belgian starving •hips carrying the Red Cross and laden with the wounded of all na tions—ships carrying food and cloth ing to friendless, harmless, terrorised peoples—ships flying the Stars and Stripes—sent to the bottom hundreds of miles from shore, manned by American seamen, murdered against all law, without warning. We believed Germany's promise that she would respect the neutral flag and the rights of neutrals, and we held our anger and outrage in check. But now we see that she was holding us off with fair promises un til she could build her huge fleet of submarines. For when spring came she blew her promise into the air, lust as at the beginning she had torn up that "scrap of paper." Then we saw clearly that there was but one law for Germany, her will to rule. We are fighting Germany because she violated our confidence. Paid German spies filled our cities. Traitors in U. S. Officials of her government, re ceived as the guests of this nation, lived with us to bribe and terrorise, defying our law and the law of na tions. We are fighting Germany because while we were yet her friends—the still held Zimmer mann note, calling to her aid Mexico, our southern neighbor, and hoping •o lure Japan, our western neighbor, into war against this nation of peace. The nation that would do these things proclaims the gospel that gov ernment has no conscience. And this doctrine cannot live, or else democ racy must die. For the nations of the world muBt keep faith, can be no living for us in a world where the state has no conscience, no reverence for the things of the spirit, no mercy for those who fall before its force. What an unordered world! Anarchy! The anarchy of the rival wolf-packs! We are fighting Germany because in this war feudalism is making its last stand against on-coming democ racy. We see it now. This is a war against an old spirit, an ancient, out worn spirit. It is a feudallsm the hill to rule the village below. It is a war for democracy—the right of all to be their own masters. Let Germany be feudal if she will! But she must not spread her system over a world that has outgrown It. Feudalism plus science; thirteenth century plus twentieth—this is the religion of the mistaken Germany that has linked itself with the Turk —that has, too, adopted the method of Mahomet. "The state has no con science,' only great power that hands off—she sent the There war against -the right of the castle on 'the state can do no With the spirit of the fran wrong.' tic she believes this gospel and that It is her duty to spread it by force. War of Feudalism With poison gas that makes living a hell, with submarines that sneak through the seas to slyly murder noncombatants, with dirigibles that bombard men and women while they sleep, with a perfected system of terrorization that the modern world first heard of when German troops entered China—German feudalism Is making war upon mankind. Let this old spirit of evil have its way and no man will live in America without paying toll to It In manhood and In money. This spirit might de mand Canada from a defeated, havy less England, and then onr dream of neace on the north would be at an end. We would live, as France has lived for forty years. In haunting terror. America speaks for the world In fighting Germany. Mark on a map those countries which are Germany's allies, and yon will mark but four, running from the Baltic through Austria and Bulgaria to Turkey. All the other nations, the whole globe aronnd, are in arms against her or are unable to move. There Is deep meaning in this. We fight with the world for an honest world, in which nations keep their word; for a world In which men, think of the ways In which they can j conquer the common cruelties of na ture instead of Inventing more horri ble cruelties to Inflict upon the spirit and body of man ; for a world in ; which the ambition or the philosophy "'."V "'«»*, *h" machine, the system or the state. na tlons do not live by swagger or by : threat, for a world in which U Service r> -, —There is more in that word than you real ise unless you trade at our store; if you do ' trade with us you know what it means to have your foodstuffs delivered when you want them—Perhaps you unexpectedly have com pany for dinner and need something real quickly; if ever you do just phone to us and we will have it at your home in short order.
