BE FAIR TO WILSON.
Partizan papers and partizan people
are attacking and abusing President
Wilson in a manner that is unbecoming.
The president is regarded everywhere,
except in strong partizan circles antag
onistic to him, as one of the greatest
men of modern times. Men so far be
neath the president in intellectuality as
to appear ridiculous, attack and abuse
him in a manner that must bring shame
to the cheeks of most Americans.
Such men as Premier Clemenceau and
Prcsident Poincaire, of France; Lloyd
George and Balfour and Northcliffe, of
England ; King Albert, of Belgium : |
Premier Orlando, of Italy, and many
Others, giye President Wilson credit /or
doing more than any other person to
the kaiser and bring on the
revolution in Germany.

without this. 1 here is no doubt of that.
hut tens of thousands of American,
British. French and Belgian lives would
have been lost before this would have
been accomplished. Germany quit when
she did because of the fear of the up
rising at home, brought on more than
by anything else by the words of Presi
dent Wilson who had adroitly from the
very start of negotiations with Germany
striven to ^ausc a rupture between the
war lords and the people of Germany.
Wil son has a perfect right to go to
Europe to attend the peace conference.
All of the leaders of our Allies urge
him to attend the conference. Peace is
to be made upon the 14 original points
laid down by Wilson, who his bitterest
political enemies must admit was the
first to outline the terms upon which a
■world peace can and will he founded.
Of course there will be American poli
that they cannot refrain from letting
whole world know they are jealous,
we believe that 90 per cent of the Ameri
can people are heartily in sympathy with
Wilson and approve his conduct of
president and we believe he handled the

is not willing to give our president credit
"Let us be just to him. He made mis
takes and some of them were quite
serious, but he has been right offener
than he has been wrong and he is our
war better than any other American
çould have handled it. He will not
a candidate for president again. Then
why should Americans, at this time when
the whole world is happy and rejoicing;
when the officials, soldiers and private
citizens of our allies are praising Wil
son, condemn and belittle him?
for some of the best work ever done by
•any American president,
journ politics, at least until the peace
conference has brought us lasting peace,
and then those who place party above
Americanism can again take up the
-cudgel and go after Mr. Wilson for
partizan reasons only.

"WHEN MERCY SEASONS
communication which Dr. Solf.
the secretary of state for foreign affairs,
for the moment, in Berlin, has addressed
to Mr. Lansing, is a study in contrasts.
It is the contrast between Philip sober
and Philip drunk, between a Germany
drunken with Ihe lust of victory, and a
Germany sobered by the terror of de
feat- It seems almost incredible that
tbe man who sent the appeal should be
speaking in the name of the nation which
contemptuously violated its solemn
pledge to Belgium as a "scrap of paper;"
which marched across the country it was
pledged to defend, burning and ravaging
as it went and murdering and outraging
*s people; which, in the course of four
years, during which it believed no reck
oning was possible, committed every con
ceivable infamy it could dream of in
northern France, bombarding cathedrals,
burning towns, removing every imag
inable sort of private property, from the
machinery of the factories to the furni
ture of private houses, cutting down
orchards and fouling water supplies, en
forcing loans and deporting the popula
tion like cattle. A nation which trained
on Paris churches, mur
worshipping in them
for no purpose at all save that of fnght
: f u | ncss ; which
sent its aeroplanes over
English villages to slaughter women and
children ; which sunk great unarmed
liners in the high seas and packet boats
in the narrow seas; which not only
declined to interfere to prevent the
Armenian massacres, but actually en
couraged them in the interests of clear
ing that people from the path of the
Bagdad railway; which stretched out its
hand to Africa, and hung its native sub
jects like cherries from the trees, or
flogged them into shapeless masses ;
which filled its foreign offices with pro
moters of arson and treason, its con
sulates with organizers of crime, and its
hanks and commercial offices with
armies of spies. There is the indictment,
or a fraction of the indictment, of the
allied nations against Germany. And be
cause the Allies demand that Germany
shall surrender in a way which will
place a repetition of her manifold treach
eries and atrocities out of her power in
the immediate future. Dr. Solf talks of
President Smith, of the Mormon
church, who died this week leaves five
widows and 43 children. If they have
influenza at Salt Lake City, where he
died, and only "members of the family
and close friends" are permitted to at
tend. the funeral would he as large as
the average funeral in other places.
Surely there is no danger of the name
"Smith" becoming extinct.
T+ie Spokane Chronicle sees a "plot to
trap the Allies" by the return of the
kaiser to Germany and the establishment
of a great German empire. The Chrou
icle is "seeing things." There is no
danger of the Allies being trapped by
defeated Germany nor is there any
(danger of the kaiser ever again getting
control of the German government,
( 0 the .Allies yesterday. It is very nice
of the Germans to "deliver the goods,"

these, "Germany's greatest weapons," as
the kaiser was wont to call them, prob

ADVISORY BOARD SPEAKS
Governor H. C. Stuart, chairman of
the national agricultural advisory hoard,
recently gave out the following impor
tant interview :
"The present and continuing demand
of the world on the United States for
meats carries an impressive lesson
the value of live stock improvement.
Had we not introduced throughout the
country pure bred sires, the product
of pure bred herds and flocks, thereby
multiplying many times the weight and
quality of our meat-producing animals,
we would have been unable to supply
a recognized essential in winning the
war. The International Live Stock ex
position, held each year during the first
week in December, has for a number of
years played an important and leading
( part in the campaign for a universal
spread of live stock improvement. It is
at once an educational institution and
an inspiration in a field of ever-increas
ing importance. The best of all domes
tic animals meet there for final appraise
ment in a fair and generous contest for
supremacy, but as between different beef
breeds and as between different speci
mens of the same breed. There the
standards of excellence are fixed by
actual demonstration, and thus the esseu
ti:i1 lessons in breeding arc made annual
ly available to the thousands of flock
masters throughout the country. On be
half of the national agricultural advisory
committee, and on my own behalf as a
breeder and producer of live stock, I
wish to endorse the "international" un
reservedly, to commend if for the great
work which it has done and is now
doing.-and to express the hope that the
attendance at the forth-coming exhibition
may he such as to give fresh assurance
that the breeders and feeders of the
country are alive to the weighty respon
sibilities which rest upon them, not only
as factors in supplying the sinews of
war, hut as holders of the blood reserve
from which the wasted herds of other
lands may he built up in the approaching
days of peace."
"Uncle Josh'' Lanphear Dead.
Mr. Lanphear, a well known pioneer
of the Troy neighborhood, died on
October 10, of pneumonia. He was
widely known and had many friends.
An account of his death was published
at the time, but it did not seem to
become generally known and his sis
ter, Miss M. J. Lanphear, who lived
with him, asks that the notice of his
death be republished as she writes a
number of his old friends had called
to visit him, not knowing of his death.
Has German Helmet.
N. P. Jensen brought to the office
of The Star-Mirror a German helmet
which his wife's nephew, . Howard
Knudson sent from France, where he
has been fighting with the American
Mr. Jensen had the helmet, a
mirror and some gauze band
ages used in dressing wounds, which
the young man had sent as souvenirs
of the war. Mr. Knudson made his
home with Mr. and Mrs. Jensen near
Moscow for some time, several years
ago, and has a number of friends
here. He is with the heavy artillery,
having enlisted at Pendlern. Oregon,

Moscow Boy Tired of War.
Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Henley have
had a recent letter from their son,
Major Henley, of the 61st infantry.
He mentions the great"*difficulty all
the boys have of writing home when
in the front line. He says they have
no time, no place to write and no
materials to write with. He has wit
nessed many sad casualties, but he
has so far escaped, although in the
midst of the action. He sent a hand
some Christmas present to his par
ents. He is longing for the time 1o
come home, where he can have milk,
butter and chicken and see the folks.
The Old Girl Dropped An Egg.
(By Samuel G. Blythe.)
Reprinted from the Saturday
The skipper stood upon the bridge,
and blood was in his eye;
Sez he: "We'll get that blinkin' Hun,
or know the reason why."
So he threw her over, and off we went,
hell bent on the starboard leg,
And when we made the slick of oil
the Old Girl dropped an egg.
The Old Girl dropped an egg, my boys,
And then dropped several more;
And the Huns down in that submarine
Will never get to shore.
Will never get to shore, my boys,
It's good-bye, Ger-ma-nee;
For every egg the Old Girl drops
Is filled with T. N. T.
