Preparations hale beIen Inade to welcotme I'resident de Valt'ra 4of the Republic of Ireland. when he visits our city on April 16 anlt 17. President In' Valera is the , lected President of the Irisih nation. which voted 1,200,000 to 30(0.0,,1 to be free and independent of Great Britain. As the chosen represe ntative of the Irish p' ople on a mission to ask for the sympathy of the American people. with the' effort of the Irish peo- 1 plie to achieve fre(dom and independence. IleValera is entitled to such I courtesies as the head of any other nation would receive at the' hands of our public officials. Our American Itevolution was the same kind ot a tRevolution that is being fought in Ireland today. And we, sent Franklin to Europe to appeal for sympathy for us in the dark dlays. Nowhere was he received with greater encouragement than in Irela:nd. In iact the Irish Parliament (later crushed by the British Government) officially welcomed him and gave him a seat of honor in the Parliament Chamber, where he pleaded America's cause so valiantly that William Pitt, then Premier of England. I said that it was suicidal to try to enlist Irishmen to fight against the American Colonies because, to use his own words, "Ireland is with America to a man." When Franklin went to England lie was insulted in almost every city. When he returned to America he said that the Colonies could depend on Ireland for every assistance, and Washington. after the Ameri- c can victory at Yorktown, sent to Ireland a message saying "Patriots of Ireland, be strong in Hope; your cause is identical with mine." At that t time Ireland was fighting the same fight she is fighting today. The, only difference between the American Republic and the Irish Republic is that we won in A single war, while Ireland is still fighting. Thomas Jefferson in a message to Ireland said. "If Ireland were asi far removed from England as we are. you would have been free long before this country was free." Ireland is a nation. No one can deny it. We fought for the fre :dom of small nations. The Irish people have voted overwhelmingly to be free, and have established a Republic. DeValera is here to convey the message from the Irish people anti to ask for recognition of their right to govern themselves. As the representative of a nation, he is do' rving of the I reception prepared for him. OUR GOOD OLD TOWN. "Every man ought to be a booster for his own town. When he knocks the town he knocks himself, for he is helping as much as anyon4e else to make it what it is-good or bad." In the above words the Topeka Capital of Topeka. Kansas. tells its readers some of their duties as citizens and The Herald believes every newspaper in the United States could quote those words and apply them to the city in which it is published. The people of Algiers are by no means lacking in willingness and eagerness to boom our town, but they sometimes forget to do so when they have splendid opportunities to say a good word for the town that would be very helpful in increasing its prominence and popularity. We are glad, therefore, to reprint this message and to urge all the 1 peaple of the west side to take it to heart, to ponder it seriously and to practise it assiduously. We all want our town to prosper and we are willing to aid to make it better in every possible way. The simplest way to do it and yet the most effective way is to always say a good word for it, to be proud of it. to show our pride, to never disparage it or allow anyone else to do so. Let us remember it is our town and it will be Just what we make it. The most important step at present to be taken by our citizens is in the fight for cheaper and better ferry systems. This indeed is the most important matter, one that will effect our future commerciae standing. our future progress in all other matters in which the present high rate of ferriage is such a barrier and burden to us who reside on the west side of the river. SUGAR INQUIRY TO BE RESUMED. Iisturbed by the prevailing high prices of sugar and the threats of another sugar famine, committees of the House and Senate have made plans to call the Attorney General to account for the continuance of the high prices. It is charged that great quantities of sugar are being imported by way of New Orleans, from Cuba; that they are refined here and then marketed at the exceslve prices which have been permitted on the Lou igna product. PFurther, it Is charged that the sugar that has come to New York has fallen into the bhands of speculators who have sold it at a bg advance in price. The farm is largely dependent upon the city and the city depends absolutely upon the country. Good roads melt the distance between the ett and the farm, they break down the barrier of Isolsatlon. New Orleans has fewer good roads than any city of Its sise in tbhis country. SAVING DAYLIGHT. SDaylight can be saved without legislatlve enactment, but in this a of multiplyling laws and unlversal regulations the greater number ot men seem to wait until they are legislated into action. Legislation is comntag to be looked on as the remedy for everything from warts, moles and ringworm to the price of fur coats and limousines. Daylight can be aed by the very simple expedient of going to bed ea'lier and getting up earlier. It would be a beneficial thing for everybody to do. However, one hesitates to make the suggestion that everybody do it, because we al atready over-burdened with advie sad admonition and suggestion as to how to est, drink, sleep, dress and met. But if you want to save daylight you can do it and it does seem that after a long winter most any man would enjoy geting up an boar Searlier and spending that hour in the silver sunlight of spring and summer. The domestic troubkes of motion picture stars renew the question ap to whether wealth brings happlnss. The Delaware legislature has a number of members who do not care wheother they are known as ladies' ma or not. Delawmare is noted for it peaches but according to the suffragists It also has its quotA of lemons. Who is going to commit the overt act that will bring peace and when Isha geptg to do it? 500 RAINCOATS Genuine Goodyear Fresh Stock Enough for every man who needs a Real Waterproof Coat, but not enough to justify any delay in purchasing. $7.98 S is our price and you'll say they're < Fworth2.00 when you examine them ELBAUM BROS.

Quite a number of envelopes have already been turn ed in. Quick help is double help. The envelopes may be given to the pastor or deposited on the collection plates in services. The young people have started their drive for the Wheat ridge Sani tariluml of Colorado. .\ nominal sunt has been collected for this worthy ca use. This sanitarium is a Lutlh eran institution for the victims of tullereulosis. the dreadful white plague. While the drive is on only I amollng the members of the Younlg People's Society. others who have :1 willing heart are invited to contri- c bute to this undertaking. The cause is worthy. The money is to be used for building a pavillion which is a dire necessity at the sanitarium. Give your donation to Miss Irma Reagan or Miss Emma Sutherland. or to the pastor.

C. last Friday and Saturday. The full re i turns have not yet been made. but as soon as this has been done a nice sum will be realized. These ladies anti the friends and patrons of the H. N. G. C. realize the needs for which the show has I been established, and they are will I ing to lend a helping hand. An agreeable surprise was given to all the patrons last week when they realized that the hall had been renovated. This is only one of the improvements that are contemplated. Patrons will now more than ever see what their money is doing for them. Just a little more patience. and soon the chairs will be pouring in; brand new opera chairs. and then the patrons will be rewarded for their loyalty. The management asks for continu ed patronage. Come, all friends of the boys. tell your friends and help us take the young Americans of to morrow off the streets and make them real loyal law-abiding citizens.

Hoarding necessities of life is trea son to humanity, When there is a coal strike, wood strikes a responsive cord. The world is composed of profiteers and those who wish they were. Not even water is safe these days. Consider the shipwrecks on the great lakes. When deportation is undertaken the average "red" is thankful for the red tape. Berlin has a woman magistrate. No wonder the ex-kaiser is still saw ing wood. The old-fashioned hold-up of trains is being added to the other woes of elvilization. The wide disparity In the prices of cider is perhaps dependent upon its potentialities. New clothes are to be encouraged, since they swell the church attendance immeasurably. The decision of the American league to be 100 per cent American has the general approval. Love may continue to laugh at lock smiths, but nowadays it Is disposed to weep at landlords. A hopeless optimist is the guy who thinks the American people will lend money to Germany. About 4,27 people have already written "the truth about Russia" and nobody knows it yet. Paying $200,000,000 more a year for coal is one thing, and getting the coal at any price ls another. CmISMTIAN 5CIECE. First Church of Christ etestist, a breach of the Mether Church is Boetoe.
