FRIDAY, October 25, 1918 Three thousand tons of coal are re quired to carry a fifteen-thousand ton transport across to the battle-field. Thut ii one of the reasons why the American people are asked to save fuel as they liave saved wheat. The kaiser has made very bold claims as to his partnership with God. He used to shout "Onward with God." Query: Did God advance with him? Jf so, Je hovah must be with the Allies NOW, unless He is retreating with the kaiser and God does not retreat. Kryan's Commoner . Where does one A. C. 1-. Gilbert, of the dear old Observer, stund on the Na tional Prohibition amendment to the constitution ? We feel that he is for Mr. Willis for Governor, because Mr. Willis when Governor gave him Ins joo on the Mercer county liqnor license board, and he ia boosting his benefactor to the best of his ability. Mighty little has he said why Mr. lirookhart should be elect ed to the legislature nothing on the only issue tint makes Mr. Hrookharts election to the legislature possible, his unequivocal declaration for the amend ment. If Willis were elected Governor he would cut no more fiirure in the pas sage of the amendment than our friend Adolnh. That Question will be decided by the next Legislature, and if we do not misjudge the temper oi ine peopie of Mercer county, Mr. lirookhart will represent them in that lionorame uouy next winter. The poor old Observer says the Pres ident is not an issue in this campaign, and has published a lot of political rot the past few weeks to make its readers believe it. Seems he is the only issue to judge by the actions of the people ol the nation. He asks for the support of certain men of whom he ha? personal knowledge and confidence born of the present crises in human allairs, tile most of whom are of his own party. Petty political organs of the Observer type, getting their opinions ready made from headquarters, would put a monkey wrench in the coirs of the administration machine and denv him the support he frankly seeks. The President has fre quently crossed party lines to get the s rvicesol men wnom up oeneveu mum best aid him. Even this does not suit Republican politicians. They want some one with an ax to grind, to find fault with the existing order of things. That is always an easy job if not a very credit able one. The party of the great Lin cold has some queer material, and if he were here to-dav he would shame it for the low plane to which it has fallen. KAISWETLIE NAILED BY OFFICER Statement of J. A. White, Manager of the Ohio Dry Federation. The liquor interests of Ohio are resort ing to their usual campaign of deception and are trying to capitalize the influenza epidemic at Camp Sherman to advantage. They have persistently, through person al agents and a few newspaper that would carry their f.dse statements, said that liquor was being shipped by the car load to Camp Sherman, to be used to check the epidemic that is causing the death of so many of our splendid boys. This statement, if true, would not mil itate against the Prohibition amendment in Ohio, because the amendment per mits the medical use, and all other non beverage uses of intoxicating liquors. But the statement is FALSK. Major Jomes F. C. Duvall, Camp Adjutant, said: "There is not a word of truth in the statement that carloads of whis key is being shipped and used to counteract the epidemic at Camp Sherman. An offer was made to fur nish whiskey, and was emphatically refused." If the wets will by their false state ments to capitalize this awful catastro tihv which has beeu causinir so many deaths, what will they n: t do in order to win their point? I his is an added reason why the wet organization, with their campaign of fraud and deception, should be wiped off the map of Ohio. And while our President and the allied armies are demanding an unconditional surrender of the barbarous Hun in Kurope, it is up to us to compel an unconditional surren der of their ally in America on Novem ber 5.

GREAT DRIVE ANTICIPATED Allies May Upset German Plan ol Retirement TIME RIPE FOR STORM ATTACK Enemy Headed For Nothing Short of the Meuae Line, In the Opinion of Army Officials at the National Capital First Stages of the Great Retreat Held by Observers to Be Almost Complete. Washington, Oct. 28. A great drive, calculated to upset the whole German plan of retirement, may soon be undertaken by the allies, in the opinion of army officials here. The German retirement In Belgium is slowing down. It ia not yet clear whether this Is due to the fact that the retreating forces are nearlng, on the whole northern front, the line which frequently has been selected by military critics as the lirst pausing place on the way to the Mouse or the border, or to the necessities of ex tending allied communication lines as the troops advance. It is probable, officers said, that there is necessity for a breathing spell on both sides. There is little doubt here that the German army is beaded for nothing short of the Meuse line and that any pause will be but temporary to per mit readjustment of the columns and supply lines in order that the same orderly sequence of movements shall characterize subsequent retirements. Several halts of this character may be expected, it was said, as the with drawal project Is carried out The fact that the allied armies are ham pered by extending communication lines gives opportunity for such halts before Marshal Foch's men can come up In sufficient force to oompel a re sumption of the rearward movement. The first stage of the great retreat is almost complete. The German right flank has been swung back like a gate all the way from Solesmes, south of Valenciennes, to the Dutch border. South of the pivot, however, there has been little change on the front from the Oise to the Meuse. It has been noted that heavy concentration of forces was made by the Germans on the La Cateau-Meuse-Serre front and also against the American pres sure northwest of Verdun. Without question the retention of these lines unbroken was vital to the German plan of action. Now that the with drawal in the north has progressed so fully, however, it would cause no surprise here if a retirement between the Oise and the Serre were voder taken without delay to rectify the whole line. HELD INEFFICIENT Twenty Shipyards Building Wooden Boats to Be Closed. Washington, Oct. 23. Because of their Inefficiency, from 15 to 20 ship yards now building wooden ships for the emergency fleet corporation will not receive any additional contracts. In making this announcement Chair man Hurley of the shipping board said there would be no curtailment of the shipbuilding program, the step being taken to save material, labor and money. As fast as the yards complete the ships now under con struction, the workmen will be sent to other plants, which constantly are In need of additional labor. Mr. Hurley would not make public the names of the yards, nor did he indi cate when the closing of them would begin. The yards held to be ineffi cient have failed to deliver contract ships within the time or at the price specified In the contracts, Mr. Hurley said. Coffee Prices May Soar. Washington, Oct. SI., The Ameri can supply of coffee Is low. Eight million bags of superfluous coffee are piled up in Brazil and tie shipping available is Inadequate. Further more, there is a rumor that the gov ernment may commandeer all of the present supply In this country. Offi cials expect coffee prices to soar m the near future.
