Sherman insists that the lis cussion of the League, should not be I public, but committed to the IMen ate, which is the treaty snaking e power. This is simply a pret-n.se, a pretext to keelo 4he president i from addressing the people on ai issue which is most vital to the rla tion.

Royal family, in November of last year. Eisner had against him a majority of the German socialists and the enmity of President Ebert and his colleagues. Elsner's ?eposition will in no wise alter or change the course of events in Germany. The Germans are in rebellion and defiant, but they are practically helpless through the decree or Foch's armistice, which restrains them from making war on the Poles. Germany is blundering as, I usual, but is compelled to submit; or be overpowered with the troops lof the allies. In order that the d peace of the world may be main Stained Germany is to be made ab ' solutely helpless. This is the fin e :ality of the war and the only surety for a world's peace. ----W n3-- A GLASS CHIMNEY PLANT.

"Fresh from France, the general f still was suffering from the effects Iof gas, his two experiences in the d Argonne being his fifth in the war, and he frequently had to interrupt , his recital .to drink water. When his voice refused to give emphasis e to his words, he pounded the table sbeside him to further drive home it his praise of the soldiers it was his '`honor to command.' -nonor to comiuauu. ai "'For six days and nights,' said the general, 'we fought the best the Boche had. We penetrated the lines 4 for five and a half miles, took 1,000 prisoners and captured 24 pieces of field artillery and 45 machine P guns. We fought in the open and G we lost 500 killed and 4,500 woun- 13 ded, the great majority of the lat- tl ter being hurt but slightly. Never a was there a finer body of men than e those I had the honor to command. a They were a wonderful lot, who m only asked to know what was want- 5 led, and they did it and did it well." P "General Traub told the commit- a tee that the first task of his men ti jof a hill, which had everything in 1 after 'jumping off' was the charge the way of defense which the Ger- l mans could build and one that 'the ii I French had been up against for c four years.' The Thirty-fifth, the r general said, took this strongly for- I rtified position in three hours after v vicious hand-to-hand fighting. c "The wounded received the best a care and the first consideration I General Traub told the committee. C He said the 7,000 wounded passing r through the field station of the Thirty-fifth division were hurried to the rear' by pressing into service 11 every truck of every description. but because of the 'devilish fire' of the Germans they could be moved" only at night. One main road serv- I ed the whole army corps, and at I one time it required 48 hours to! t build a road around a crater caus 1ed by a German shell, and ten days `to bridge it. j "Airplanes appeared on call, and t flew over the German lines, the t general said. A shortage of horses e was admitted, but the officer de ` clared there was always artillery s support. Only a half dozen shells 3 from the American artillery fell in f its lines, but in this connection the e 'general asked to be permitted to " refrain from comment on French artillery with the division." l S New Beads at Jewelry Section Tou? .an i n ,Ar tAIursa-1 p r--oo gtti. t+ 4 Ea <'lo Pe'>r . *s.';e i on-4e time*-- n 9 beadie twith* seimeino t 4 it .

Some kind of a colored people's protective association has wired Governor Pleasant to protest at the lynching in this parish last Friday. the protest comes from New York, and, of course, has. the backing of everybody who knows nothing about it. When the pressure from without ceases to irritate the race situation in the south, the southern people will feel safe in differing with each other as how best to treat such problems.-Bossier Ban ner. The protest addressed to Gover nor Pleasant was given full public ity in the Shreveport Times without comment. Governor Pleasant has remained silent, presuming that the wisest policy dictated its treatment with contempt. The protest was, crouched in words mnore or less arrogant. There was eot a sylla ble expressive of cegret over the diabolicat crimes, the deliberate, murder of an aged couple when1 sleep, but there was -an insolent presumption that eovere4 a threat of retaliation. Suchl protests antd indtictiverses are productive of irritation ant can serve no good purpose.

The best and 5 most direct answer to the protests Sof the colored peoples' protective - association is that the lynching of negroes will stop when the negro - shall tease in his attempts against - white women. For any other crime t the negro is assured the protection s of law.
