1 m THE LABOR ADVOCATE KIIAV OF A ''MW" OIISHIIVKU. Troy, N. Y. The Troy Observer thunders for "law and order," but in this patriotic work takes time to say: "For the third -or fourth time in a year or a little more, professional agi tators have been in this section and they arc said to be bent upon disrupt ing working conditions at one or two of the plants in the vicinity. These people are certainly doing the employes no good, and their previous efforts, where they have met with success, have resulted in much suffering for the men. Many people believe that a good solu tion of the problem would be to have these men placed aboard a train and told if they returned to Troy again they would be given a bath in the river."

When Troop C reaches the Union Depot next week one of the military units which Cincinnati sent to the front last summer will he once more in her bosom, and the long months of anxiety and suspense with regard to them will he at an and. Whatever else may be in store for our country, our hoys will he home again for a time. No matter what .the morrow may bring forth after they reach home, they will he ours for a while, sufficient for the time is the happiness thereof. There is, however, a sense of public ownership in the coming reception. Including all their rela tives and friends, the members of Troop C are probably known personally, directly or indirectly, to a comparatively small fraction of the people of Cincinnati. r,l,,t- '' l'i"1'"1" M,!'1"'". T'l C But the welcome to them is not the welcome of a fraction, but of the whole. ., It is an all-Cincinnati greeting to an organization in which all Cincinnati has a sincere pride. It is Cincinnati's Troop C and the whole community feels very close to it, and very much interested in all that concerns it anxious to do it honor ; anxious to show its appreciation of the patience and patriotism which it has displayed from first to last. We do not think we can over-emphasize the community interest in this occasion. Its real significance would be lost if we failed to take account of what it stands for in a public sense. The families and friends of these men are glad to see them back I because they love them and because we want with us those we i love. But they are doubly, triply glad because our cavalry will return with honor unimpaired, with the prestige of having quitted themselves like men during an experience well calculated to try their strength and spirit. At a time when the word "honor" seems to excite the sneers and contempt of the pawnbrokers, money-lenders and installment men under the name of the "American Union Against Militarism," who are really giving aid and comfort to our enemies, whether inten tionally or not. It is something to know and to feel proud of, that a new genera tion to whom the term "honor" represents the highest of personal and national duty, Honor is not an idle phrase, either in the lexicon of an individual or a nation. The man who discards it, is more un trustworthy than a dog, and the nation who laughs at it, richly de serves to drink of the bitter cup of humiliation. Troop C lias been true to our ancient faith the faith that keeps knighthood in flower in every age. We would love it less did it not love honor more than anything. It has set an example of devotion to patriotic duty greatly needed at such a time as this. We thank Heaven our gallant troop is back safe and sound, but we thank Heaven still more that we have increased, not lost, the inspiration of all healthy and genuine manhood ; the thing without which human beings are as the beasts that perish. Troop C is to be mustered out of active service, but we are sure the love of their country and their readiness to defend it will not be mustered out of the hearts of its members. They have still a duty to perform at home to maintain vigilant watch and ward against well-meaning or insidious enemies who would steal our sense of honor from us and persuade us that self respect is the mark of the savage. They will continue in the Na tional Guard in the best meaning of those words, so long as they help to guard us from influences which are hostile to the higher hu man development, either in the individual or in the people. In years to come when Troop C has been decimated by death its remaining members will get together and talk over things of today, and at that time only will they know the real sacrifice. of their parents and understand why those same parents are so proud of them at this time anil happy that they will return home safe, sound and better men.
