With the kaiser a fugitive, his throne gone, his imperial moustache points drooping, Germany is cry'fng for a speedy signing of the peace terms to keep her people from starving. The natural im pulse is for us to say; 'Thou hast said that he was God ; let thy God protect thee." Scorn is the natural expression that comes with the hour. But it must be a righteous scorn. It must not be a scorn which would leave a German babe to die because an Armenian babe died. It was the antithesis of this idea that we fought in the war, if President Wilson expressed the heart United States, as he did. Without any expression of maudlin sympathy, the Christian world will recogniz.e that a spectre is the same whether it appears before the innocent in Germany or be fore the innocent in Armenia. To think otherwise is to think as the Indian and Turk think. The truly great revenge will he to show to the German commoir people the great error they labored under at the behest of their leaders, as followers of the German kulture, as mad Molochs. The truly great revenge will make them pay pound for pound, stone for stone, for ruined Belgium. But the truly great revenge must not take the lives of babes in the streets of'Berlin either by the. sword or by- starvation, which is worse than the sword, because babes in Bel gium died with bayonets through their tender flesh. We must make this great distinction between the guilty 'and the innocent upon«whioh the law rests. The peace terms will he as the war was—firm, decisive and like the mills of the 1 gods. But the thought of destruc tion must with the cessation of war also perish with the sword.— Pend D'Oreille Review. MEETING IS NECESSARY. One of the most important meetings to be held as soon as the influenz.a ban is lifted is the convention of delegates of the North Idaho Chambers of Commerce. At this meeting every city, town and dis trict III the ten northern counties of the state should he represented by practical business men. Men who are too busy to listen to glittering platitude^ but who ) will not he backward in expressing their thoughts, desires, hopes and also their fears. If such a meeting is held it will be of inestimable value to our legislators. North Idaho is facing conditions which , are new. To this wonderful section country will come thousands of dis charged soldiers and sailors. These men will not he overburdened with worldly goods, hut will he filled with the same desire that urged our forefathers to come west to build their homes. There is room for these men but steps must be taken to help them. In this county alone there arc wonderful opportunities await ing development, hut there must he or ganiz.ation. We have oversubscribed every bond issue, and donation. Now that war is ended and we all Hhve a bond or two tucked away, let us not stop, but when bonds are issued for im provements let them he in small denomi nations so that we may buy them a id develop our own country. Let the dele gates suggest what improvements will be most advantageous, and not stop there, but continue until they are completed. The meeting should be free from long winded talks and banqueting, but full of practical business.— Coeur d'Alene Press, te te tWHY IS THE COLONEL SILENT? Mr. Roosevelt has passed judgment on the elections without paying special heed to Mr. Ford's remarkable run in Michi gan. Mr. Ford seems to be defeated by some 5000 votes in a state that gave Mr. Roosevelt 227,000 plurality for president in 1904 and which is credited with a normal republican plurality of 100,000. Ifr. Roosevelt again carried Michigan In 1912 as an independent against all Other candidates. Of all states Michigan on its record would seem to be in com pletc sympathy with the colonel. What is the matter with this Michigan that it •O far modifies the Rooseveltlan taste • im war candidates as almost to elect Henry Ford to the United States senate on the democratic ticket? Mr. Ford's run can hardly be dismissed as "personal popularity" in view of the man's views on war and peace which have been so bitterly criticized—and at times justly criticized, in our opinion. — Springfield (Mass.) Republican. GIVES WILSON GREAT CREDIT. It docs not appear that the president of the United tSates would think of claiming the overthrow of the Hohenzol lern dynasty and the downfall of the monarchy in the Prussia of Frederick the Great as a personal victory, yet fhd verdict of historians will have to be that no one of the ruling statesmen among Germany's foes in this war aimed at the German kaiser so directly and so per sistently as did Mr. Wilson. The abdi cation of William II and the smashing of the Hohcnzollern family as a ruling house are the results of a political and diplomatic offensive which Mr. Wilson more than any other man conceived and directed.—Springfield (Mass.) Republi can. fs: Kc Mr The corn crop, according to this month's government estimate, has in creased some 32,000,000 bushels over a month ago, the total being 2,749.198,000 bushels. Last year's corn crop totaled 3,159,500.000 bushels; but much of it was inferior in quality. The conclusion is that while this year's crop is not up to the country's hopes in size, it by no means means a "crop failure."—Spring field Republican. pa » ' Three tilings that should not be for gotten in the peace terms: The' banishment of the Kaiser.

Meehan, with the request that it be published in this issue: "Dear Sir: I have been working the Army camps and realize there ahoulô-be some systematic effort made to keep the boys well, but this seems to be left to his own discussion along the lines mentioned below. "In most cases a boy's own ability to make up his bed properly and to keep covered properly (especially in the morning hours when it is coldest) seems to be the one thing in life where he displays absolutely no ability. "I am sure a thorough investiga tion in each camp would suggest the cause and a means of preventing per haps one-half of the present low rate of sickness. <(T . , ,, , ., , , I have been through the bunk house where the boys were sleeping (with the atmosphere such that an overcoat would be comfortable) and saw feet, arms, legs, chests and rumps uncovered, and Ï qm surprised there is not more siojepess than there Just from this cause alone. "This exposure night after night «.I. i j j. 4 .-, .e- i j - leaves the body a fertile field for any §erms that ale prevalent. "I am sure there should be an or derly in each biihk house to see that the boys keep covered properly in the morning hours. "I would suggest that in cases where three blankets are not enough a boy should be allowed more and that he should be made to understand that the things he needs to keep him well and healthy is not only his privi lege to ask for, but his duty. "I would also suggest that in mak ing his bed at night he lay one-half of the first blanket at the left side of the cot, then the same way on the right side, and so on; then after he has retired on the half of the blankets that are on the cot he can throw the half from the right side over him, then the half from the left, then from the tight, and then from the left. "This makes it nearly impossible for the cold air to get to the body, but I would suggest a still better way would be to let each boy sew up one side and one one end of his blankets and tuck one inside the other, this would make it impossible for him to get uncovered. "Even under these precautions, if the night orderly sees that any certain boy is constantly catching cold his case should be dealt with accordingly. "I will conclude that the death rate of the Army is low compared with other wars, but why should we stop when thousands of more lives can be saved at such a small cost, and we need our hospitals for the wounded. "Thanking you for a conscientious study of these facts, I remain yours for the safeguarding of the boy who has given his life i or our cause. "I make this plei. for the mothers and sisters at home, who would will ingly give their own lives instead. "O. D. HOLMES, "921 Sixth St., N. W." ASE UNIVERSITY UNION GIVEN HIGH PRAISE DBmN ELDRIDGE TELLS OF AM ERICAN COLLEGE ASSOCIA TION IN PARIS Dean J. Q. Eldridge speaks en thusiastically of the American " Uni versity Union, established in Paris, of which the University 6t Idaho is a member. Dean Eldridge ip the fol lowing interesting interview gives the history of the Union and the work being done: . "When Yale University found that they had five or six thousand stu dents and alumni in the war,'' said Dean Eldridge, "they decided to send over to Paris to Professor George H. Nettleton of the department of - Eng lish, getting him to operate a Yale Bureau for their men in the service. Other universities, on learning of this move of Yale University, decided to cooperate and establish bureaus for their institutions. Out of this idea grew the American University Union, which now is comprised of over two hundred of the leading- universities and colleges of America. U. of I. is Member. "The University of Idaho has been a member for one year, the annual membership fee of one hundred dol lars having been voluntarily subscrib ed by the faculty. Membership in the Union entitles the members of a university to use all the privileges of the club. When a man's relations friends want to find out where he is, a letter written to the Union will bring the information wanted, if it is possible at all. In Heart of Paris. "The Union occupies a large hotel building in the heart of Paris, eight rue de Richelieu, just off the Avenue Del Opera; the building was formerly the Royal Palace Hotel. The hotel is composed of a lobby, dining room, bed rooms, and a library. At all times it is full of young American of ficers and soldiers. It is the only place in Europe, perhaps, where mili tary salutes are unknown, for the at mosphere is entirely democratic. In the hotel are many thousands of rec ord books where a man registers; he must put down his university, class, year, and frat, if he has any. ♦ + + ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ MARKETS ♦ ♦ The following market quotations are the prices paid to tho producer by the dealer and are changed daily, thus giving the public the accurate quotations in all classes of grain, produce and meats. , Hay and Grain Wheat, Bluest.em No. 1, bulk, net, delivered to warehouses $2.02)4 Wheat, Bluestem, No. 1, sacked net, delivered to warehouses 2-11)4 Wheat, Fortyfold, Ne. 1, bulk, net, delivered to warehouses 2.02)4 Wheat, Fortyfold, No. 1, sTced, net, delivered to warehouses 2.11)4 Wheat, White Club, No. 1 bulk, net, delivered to warehouses 2.00)4 Wheat, White Club, No. 1, s'ked net, delivered to warehouses 2.09)4 Wheat, Red Russian.
