Mont people are at heart ail vocates of the square dual. It is a natural trait of ihe Ameri? can people, ntnl the residents of this community are not back wttnl in this respect. Shall we incorporate the spir? it of tho square tleal into on. Christmas spirit this year? Shall wu go even further Utltl make it a Bquuro tlotll for ourselves, ami for the commu? nity that shelters ami feeds us? t Mir people for a number of years have enjoyed a largo measure of material prosperity. This fact is redacted in tho community life, in the clothes we wear, in tho footl we eat, and in every act of our daily existence. It will be reflected in the purchases we make for the hol? iday seasini, which will he up? on a liberal scale, though pos? sibly not extravagant. It i- not within the province of the editor to tell our people where lo spend their money. It is theirs, to spend where and as they think best, Rut ti spirit of fairness im pels us to say a word in behalf of mir local merchants?those dealers who have st.I loyally by the community in adversity as well ns in prosperity. They have purchased heavily in the wholesale markets in or der to tie able to supply the hol? iday WatltS of our people. Wo are assured that they have pricod their holiday offerings down ab low as it is possiblo for them to bo sold They havo done their utmost iu ordor to moot the requirements of tho public. Wo feel thut our pooplo are omiuoully fnir minded?that they will extend tho square deal to the homo merchant at Christmas time, as they do at other seasons of tho year?that they will first examine tho stocks of the local morchautB before making their Christmas purchases?and, all things be? ing equal, that they will give the local man tho benotlt of their trade wherever possible without prejudice to them 1 Reives, j Christmas is u time of good cheer, and tho squnro deal in? creases it an hundred fold. League, or No League. Lay asido all purely political considerations and prejudices. Forgot for the moment that there is such a thing as the He publican, or a Democratic par ty, or any other kind of a par? ty. Consider only the futuro wol fare of tho world iu general and the United States in partic? ular. Then ask yourself, ?'Should America participate in the league of nations;-"' One of the two things will assuredly happen. Kit her the league will become so powerful that it will dominate the world, or it will collapse and the uu bridled passions and. greed of nations will be let loose to plunge the world again into the hull of war. If the entry of the United Slates into the league will oper? ate toward its success and the elimination of future wars, then it would seem that our du? ty is plain in so far as participa? tion is concerned, for assuredly no sane person desires to see u renewal of bloodshed'.

But there are certain condi? tions which should be imposed before tho United Slates bo. comes an aciivo member, or even a passive participant. The Monroe doctrine must stund. The railed States must be tho sole judge of its internal affairs and of the regulation of the question of immigration. Tho covenant of the league should provide that whenever troops or funds are required for enforcing Ub mandates every country signatory thereto shall provide its pro rata quota ol each in proportion to its popu? lation. In other words, there should be no loophole left whereby we could be required to furnish a greater number id troops or u larger sum of mon? ey than any oilier country, in proportion to our size. When we utu definitely and effectually assured against in? terference with our internal a( fuirs, against discrimination in assessing the burdens of the league, and that ils decisions will be made ami supported up on a broad basis of justice to all ami favoritism toward uouo, wo can see no reason whj the United Stales should mil take its place among the nations of tho world in an effort to avoid future wars and devuslutiou. Kurope has plainly indicated that we will he welcomed into the league upon practically our own terms. Surely there .-in.OUgll brains in Washington, includ? ing both the government and the Senate, to formulate terms thai will adequately safeguard our own interests ami slill be fair and just to the other na? tions of the earth.
