The issue Involved Is: Shall Democracy or Atitocrecf rulo the world? Shall the peoples of dem- ooraus, wbere aetnocracies obtain. FRANK FARRINGTON. continue their democratic form of gov ernment and preserve unto them selves their hard-earned liberties with opportunity to Improve them and thus contribute, to tbe betterment of all mankind, or shall the attainments of enturies-old struggles for freedom and liberty be blasted into oblivion by a ruthless military caste and all the peo ple of the world be menaced and ruled by the tyranny of a triumphant military despotism? That Is the great underlying principle to be determined and the one that has caused millions of men to be gripped in a death strug gle, the enormity and hell-fury vlo- lenoe of which is unprecedented In the world's history and beyond tho power of human mind to fully compre hend. On one side are arrayed the legions ot a military caste, driven to battle by the mailed flat of Autocracy. On the other side ai the forces ot Democracy heroically answering the 1 challenge to do battle In defense of liberty, Justice and humanity. Into this crucible of horror America haa cast her lot with the forces of Dem-1 ocracy and summoned her sons to help throw olt the yoke of threatened Autocracy so that the peoples of all the nations of the world shall be free to follow the tenor ot their own de sign, , j Our Solemn Obligation. The momentous decision of our Qoti ernment to throw the nation's re sources tuto this mighty conflict and to give ot her sons, and oft her wealth, to the cause of humanity, imposes upon every American and upon every man who has partaken of America's bounty the solemn obligation of loyali ty In doing their part to win victory for the cause America represents, no matter whether they be found as sol diers in the battle lines or as work era lu industrial pursuits. The full significance of this awful cataclysm that has overtaken the world and our relation thereto is, aa yet by us, scarcely realized, though thousands of our countrymen are now In the brittle lines and myriads mora are preparing to follow. These, our countrymen, tho select of America,' scholars, college men, professionals of. all the arts and trades, and s ciences, sons of the rich and sons of the poor, men who love life as well as we but who prefer liberty to life without lib erty, have made common cause and entered the lists in answer to the na tion's needs. These men, every one a hero, with the courage, of Spartans and the souls of martyrs, go to the battle grounds to face every death, dealing device human brain oan devise for the destruction of man and offer their lives in defense of democracy and the freedom of the peoples of the world, and they will do this with th full knowledge that mill ions of theli kind have already been ruined physic ' cally and mentally and left to suffer a living death, while other millions havt blasted into bits and their shreda trampled into the muck and mire o this thundering inferno of death and dest r "a.

If Autocracy should win In this titanic struggle for human rights, all our accomplishments of the past would be swept away and tyranny and oppression would be rampant through out the world. Should thst come true, no class would suffer as much as the men and women of labor, and it will come true If we fail to support our Government in the present crisis. A government can be no stronger than the people living under it make it, and If we fail to respond to our Government's appeal for help our war policy must collapse and our country men "over there" must fail, and la that event it is Inevitable that the forces of autocracy shall be triumph ant over the forces of democracy. Thus it is that every working man and working ( woman in America should buy Liberty Bonds. Money invested in Liberty Bonds is as safe as our Government itself. The Illinois district of the United Mine Workers of America has purchased $500,000 worth of the first, second and third issues of bonds out of district funds and we propose to buy $500,000 worth of the fourth issue. Our various local unions have made purchases ag gregating millions and I am certain they will buy bountifully of the fourth Issue. The rate of interest paid on such Investment is fair. However, tho paramount reason why we should buy Liberty Bonds is because the fate of the world is in the balance, the free-, dom and happiness of humanity is at stake, and the sale of Liberty Bonds is one of the mediums through which our Government must raise the money to feed and equip and to care for our sons and brothers, our relatives and associates, our countrymen "the boys over there" while they fight to crush autocracy and to implant in its stead' liberty and justice for all the peoples ot aO the nations of the world. Liberty Medals In the ranks when a soldier per forms some heroic act he is awarded a medal. In the civilian army when some person buys Liberty Bonds, joins the Red Cross or the "Y. M. C. A., he or she 1b given a badge. It is an honor tor a person to wear one of these badges, juAt as it is for the soldier to wear his. The aver-' age American citizen can and should wear three of these badges the Lib erty Loan, the Red Cross and the T. M. C. A. , . They show that the wearer is far sighted enough to see that if we are to do our part in helping to relieve the Hun-infested lauds of Europe, and make the menace of the spiked helmet a thing of the past, we must have soldiers, and that soldiers alone can not accomplish this. Uncle Sam needs the money ob tained through the purchase ot Lib erty Bonds to make ammunition, feed, clothe and to furnish other esentlal things needed in the maintaining of an army. We must have the Red Cross to look after the families of the soldiers, furnish bandages, nurses and other things to make army life comfortable. The Y. M. C. A. to keep up the morale ot the men, the "Y" huts, where the men are furnished hot drinks, cigarettes, writing materials and literature. After the war is over and our boys have returned home to us, bringing with them medals showing that they performed some commendable deed, will YOU have your three, to show the b ys that you are backing them all the while? Siloam Springs (Ark.) Daily Register. A Colored Man's Example. It was a wise and patriotic old col ored American who refused to sell his $100 Liberty Bond for $S6, because he would not give up the United States' promise (his bond) to pay him $100 with interest for the United States' promise (currency) to pay him $86, and who reiuied to sell the same bond for $102, because, he said, that the $102 must be counterfeit or else the would-be pure-baser would not be wil ling to give it for only $100. It is safe to say that there are no gold bricks ot wildcat securities among that Ameri can's assets. NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC.
