While marching in the parade In
celebration m Armistice day at Ceu
tralia a company of ex-service men
were fired upon from I. W. W. head
quarters and other nearby buildings.
Four of the returned soldiers were
killed and three were wounded. A
number of the perpetrators of the as
sassination were captured and would
have been lynched had it not been
for the prompt action of the com
rades of the murdered soldiers, who
proved their good citizenship by vol
unteering to maintain law and order.
• The perpetrators of this ghastly
tragedy, who did not hesitate to
shoot down in cold blood the men
who had risked their lives In di
fence of this nation, and who chose
as the time for their fiendish crime
the day upon which all patriotic peo
ple were celebrating the triumph of
democracy over autocracy, demon
strated that they have no concep
tion of gratitude, no appreciation of
the institutions of this government,
no respect for its laws. They are
anarchists whose hand is against
every man, and every loyal citizen's
hand should be raised against them.
They are more dangerous than
mad dogs or rattlesnakes. The mad
dog does not realize what it is doing,
while these enemies of organised so
ciety plan their primes deliberately.
The rattlesnake gives warning be
fore he strikes, hut these criminals
shoot from ambush when least ex
The blood of the murdered ex
service men cries out that America
must be made safe for Americans;
that all alien enemies, all haters of
law and order, all those who are
hostile to the government of the
United States, all members of sedi
tious and disloyal organizations,
must be smoked out and driven from
the country, never to return, or lined
up before a wall in front of a firing
squad after a fair trial.
The time has come for the nation
to inaugurate a thorough house
cleaning and to put an end to the ac
tivities of all organizations, seditious
and lawless in spirit, if not in name.
If more drastic legislation is needed
to accomplish the desired result,
such legislations should be enacted
NOW, not next year.
if America is to lie made safe for
Americans, It must be made unsafe
for the kind of radicals who perpe
trated or condone the Centralis mas
sac re.
The shots fired last Tuesday from
the 1. W. W. headquarters In Cen
tralia were a challenge to every loy
al American. If they accept the
challenge as they should and will,
the murdered ex-service men will
not have died in vain.
But lawlessness must at lie re
sorted to in dealing with the violat
ors of law. The people must not art
as a mob, on the spur of the mo
ment, but as a well organized and
determined body, with a. definite
purpose in view, always emulating
the splendid example set by the ex
service men of Centralia, who pro
tected the suspected murderers of
tffeir comrades against the violence
of the enraged witnesses of the
crime. They showed the way to
make America safe for Americans.
At last the findings of Col. Lewis,
who was sent by the War Depart
ment to Investigate the charges made
by Roger S. Sanborn of Spokane of
inefficiency and remissness on the
part of the State College and mili
tary officials in handling the Influ
enza epidemic In the S. a. T. C. unit
stationed at Pullman, have been
made public. As everyone, who
knew the real facts, expected the
findings completely vindicate the
officials and brand the accu
sations of Mr. Sanborn as "sensa
tional, unjustified and misleading."
The report of Col. Lewis should
close the matter forever. The In
vestigation which he conducted was
i exhaustive and brought out all the
evidence it was possible to secure.
Vr. Sanborn was given every oppor
tunity to substantiate his assertions.
hut failed completely in his attempt
to do so The pity of it is thai such
ill-founded charges should have
been given publicity In a daily papei
of such large circulation _ a tie
Spokesman-Review, without any of.
tort to find out whether they werf
true or false, „ js even a gfeatei
pity mat this same daily newspaper,
having in, mcd the reputation of tie
State College and its officials b>
printing the charge on Us front page
under flaring nnd sensational head
lines, should bury the official refu
tation of the charges and the vindi
cation Of the college and military au
thritles In its forum department,
J on the editorial page, which is prob
j ably read by fewer people than any
i other section of the paper, Having
i given all possible prominence to Mr.
i Sanborn's untruthful assertions,
I common fairness would dictate that
equal prominence should have been
given to the authorative refutation
of those assertions by the officer
delegated by the War Department to
sift the matter to the bottom. Be
cause Mr. Sanborn happens to be a
resident of Spokane, and to hold a
position of some Importance In the
public schools of thai city, does not
justify the Spokesman-Review in
failing to give pitiless publicity to
the fact that, he has been discredited
and branded as a falsifier in his
wanton attack upon the authorities
in charge of the S. A. T. C. unit at
the State College during the influ
enza epidemic.
in contributing a handsome
Brunswick phonograph, a leather
couch and other useful articles to the
furnishings of the headquarters of
the Veterans Vocational club tit the
State College, the people of Walla
Walla have manifested a fine spirit
of appreciation of the great sacri
fices made by the members of that
organization. Not only will these
gifts add materially to the pleasure
and comfort of the disabled soldiers,
but the spirit which inspired the
gifts will cheer and stimulate them,
in the hours of discouragement,
which they will till naturally en
counter, while fitting themselves to
again become self supporting citi
zens and readjusting themselves to
their physical handicaps.
This tangible evidence that a com
munity far removed is interested in
their welfare, that a splendid organ
ization, like the Elks lodge of Walla
Walla, has not forgotten what they
did for their country will be a con
stant source of encouragement and
Inspiration to these brave and r.mbi
tlous young men.
The splendid example which the
people of Walla Walla have set by
thus sharing in the privilege of con
tributing to the comfort and happi
ness of the ' vocational veterans
might well be emulated by other
communities. While the disabled
boys are residing in Pullman, they
come from all parts of the North
west, and they fought and endured
and suffered for all the people of
the nation. Many of these people
will hail with joy the opportunity to
prove their gratitude. They can do
it by writing a letter of appreciation
and encouragement or by sending
some useful or ornament.-1 article
to add to the comfort 6» or brighten
ifp the club house of the vocational
veterans at the State College in
I'ullman. Such proofs that their
sacrifices have not been forgotten
by their countrymen will be the best
kind of stimulus to the disabled men
who are bravely trying to offset their
physical infirmities incurred during
'he war, by fitting themselves for
somo new and useful avoe.tion.
The people of Walla Walla ha^e
, promptly and cheerfully grasped this
opportunity and have thereby ss-
I cured for themselves the honor of
initiating a movement in which
many other communities in Eastern
| Washington will doubtless join.
We call the attention of the men
who mine coal and the men who run
: the railroads to the fact thai while
i they are fighting for Increased con
: pensation on tho protcxt of the high

! helping to destroy the principal in
dustry of lowa, which is farming.
There would be no lows tod sw

j these other latere l his taken from

• ing the past two months, three hun

had been taken from the pockets of
' speculators la any of the large cities.
j much would h.tve been Daid about it.
Hut it was u\ n from the farmer,
and the farmer is practically unor
ganized. In the next breath the
farmer is asked to produce more and
at a constantly decreasing price in
order to cut down the high cost of
The fact is everything else has
been advanced. The farmer is not
buying anything cheaper jthan he
bought it a few months ago. In the
interest of common justice to the
great producing Mississippi valley
we say thai the farmer is willing to
I take his share of loss In getting the
i world back •<> a peace basis, but the
farmer should not be compelled to
stand it all.
Some one will say that the farmer
has grown rich during the war. The
reply to that is: the farmers' sons
went into the armies and the retired
farmers took up the work and pro
duced food for the armies and for
all Europe. The farmer made some
money and we rejoice in this fact
Bill he has made nothing like the
money that thousands of other en
terprises have made during and since
the war,
We do not believe in classes, nor
in class legislation, but we can say
definitely that no man owes his pov
erty today, if he is poor, to the high
cost, of bread and meat. He owes!
It to his own extravagance and his j
own wastefulness more than to any
other cause. If public press and
public opinion would let up on the'
farmer and Induce people not to buy
what they do not need, the high cost
of living question would be solved.

members of the chamber of com- ,
merce are again turning their atten
tion to the heroes of th • great war
and are laying plans for a •'home

Pullman men who havo returned
from the service. The big majority
of the local soldiers and r.nlors have

evidence of the happiness of the
community at the triumphant return
of these sons of Pullman. A com
mittee of five has been named by '
President W. A. Spalding of the;
chamber of commerce to establish 1

Hardy had been home a week, nnd
still he felt like a stranger In Taft
' (lie. Not but what everybody wel
comed him, but they did it in an easy*
going sort of way that left his own
enthusiasm cold after ten years of an
He had been twenty-four when he
had started West. There had been two
incentives, tils father's demand that he
throw up engineering and go into the
store, and Winifred's refusal to marry
His yearning to make good and show
them the sort of man he really was
had been the spur all the years he
had worked and climbed. Winifred
had told him she liked boys who were
"steady." That meant the hardware
store, nnd "Irving & Son" on the long
black and gold sign over the door. He
had laughed bitterly, out in the lonely
Arizona nights, before he had struck
his right pace, and yet there had been
the sting of homesickness in It too.
With all the joy of adventure and ex
perience, the little mill town on the
Vantic river back in Connecticut was
home to him, and Winifred was the
only girl who could bring a thrill to
his heart, Just little Winifred Blake
with her big blue eyes that seemed to
challenge a fellow to do the very best
that was In him.
He had seen her only at a distance
since his returnonce In church, twice
down along Main street when she was
waiting for the car. Then he met her
on the old hill road coming from the
reservoir Saturday afternoon, her
hands filled with violets.
"You know they always did grow
longer and larger up there, it seemed,''
she said, as he waited beside her In
the road.
"I was going up after some." Hardy
told her awkwardly.
"Take the short cut through Robin's
lane, why don't you? Do you remem
ber the way?"
And Hardy deliberately prevaricated.
No, he was sorry. He had absolutely
forgotten the short cut. Wouldn't she
just turn back and show It to him?
Winifred hesitated, laughed a little
and looked as If she didn't believe him.
"We always went that way after
violets, Hardy," she reminded him.
"It's just the little lane below the big
woodlot. You know It so well."
But Hardy shook his head, looking
down Into her eyes until she ignored
him, and watched the fringe of pines
and red oaks ahead of them, with slen
der white birches lifting tremulous
new leaves In the sunlight
He had made up his mind nil the
way home that he would ask her again.
She had only been seventeen then.
Now she was twenty-seven, and It
seemed as if the years had only made
her sweeter and more desirable. There
was something Indefinable about her
now, something that evaded him. She
seemed sure of herself poised and tran
quil eyed, more tender, too, In her
way. It must have been lonely for her
there in the little mill town.
"See the Island over yonder." Wini
fred said suddenly. They had come to
the crest of the hill overlooking the
reservoir. It had always looked like a
miniature western mountain scene, the
broad lake with its rocky pine edged
shores, anil rocky islands here and
there. "What splendid times we used
to have up here, Hardy."
"I've never forgotten one of them,"
he said slowly. "When you're a thou
sand miles and more away from home,
only memories seem real."
"I know," she rejoined Quickly. "All
the time I was in Japan I felt that way,
and when we were sent down to the'
Philippines It was even worse, for
there I would meet somebody from
home once In awhile, and everything
they said made me want to take the
next boat back."
"You've been away?" he exclaimed.
"With Aunt Dora and Uncle Phil,"
she nodded her head. "There were so
many of us at home, and when he was
sent to the East by his company, he
wanted a secretary, so I coaxed htm
to take me. Then be died In Tokio,
and because I understood the trade
situation pretty well, they made me
sales manager instead of Irving to
break In a new man. I've only been
home about two months. They want
me to try South America this time,
but I'm tired of It. I suppose women
are Just tabby cats after nil. You
work and make believe you like It, and
all the time you're thinking of some
cozy corner rto curl up In and rest.
I'm going to buy the Prendergast place
and fix up the garden beautifully, and
have five cats."
Hardy laughed, laughed until she
turned to look at him almost resent
fully. He was so tall and broad shoul
dered, so resolute and sure of himself,
Jhst as she remembered him. One rea
son why she had gone away was to
show him that girls didn't have to stay
at home.
"You can't buy It." he told her teas
ingly, "because I knew you loved it and
the deed is waiting for me now. We
could make it the homestead, Winnie.
I'll have to go West now and then, and
I want you to come along. I want to
show you all the places where I've
thought of you and told myself to keep
up my nerve and go back after you
and make you say yes."
Winifred looked up at him over the
Violet- held to her lips.
"I always wondered why you stayed
so long." si,.- said. "i thought you
were Just a quitter. Hardy, when you
didn't tale me with you before."
