THE COLONEL'S HARD LUCK.
Colonel Roosevelt is certainly playing)
in hard luck. After spending six years
in pointing out to the public the weak
nesses of Woodrow Wilson, the Colonel
is forced to witness that much despised
usurper going to Europe to be acclaimed
the saver of democracy and treated with
acclaim by the greatest men of the
European nations, including crowned
and uncrowned heads.
The Colonel had planned, but. true to
•the Roosevcltian instinct, had given his
plans to the newspapers as soon as
formed, a trip to France to visit the
grave of his son. No sooner had the
announcement been made than President
Wilson announces his intention of ac
cepting the invitation of the rulers of
our allied countries to go to Paris and
visit the capitals of all of our Allies. It
docs not require an expert to see that
there will be little "acclaim" left for the
Colonel when he gets over to France
after _peace i? finally arranged and Wil
son lias spent weeks tlieréi
Btu that is not all. The Colonel has
been grooming himself for the race for
the presidential nomination on th'e re
publican ticket in 1920 so long and so
faithfully that it seemed there could be
no "slip up" this time and he would
surely be nominated, if not by acclama

If it means anything to you, as a prospective de
positor, that the First National Bank has been identi

That it has kept pace with the growth of this
community during thirty-six eventful years, and
conscientiously lived up to its policies of safety and
conservatism during that period—
Then this will be an important consideration in
choosing the banking connection that is to serve
your interests during the years to come.

WHAT GERMANY MUST PAY.
France wants Germany to pay her
$67.000,000.000, which is about $1.000 for
every man. woman and child in Ger
Belgium will probably have a
hill of $20.000,000.000 against Germany,
I England's bill will be no small item,
Serbia must he reimbursed for the dam
age done to her, and Italy will also ask
heavy damages from the Huns. Ger
many's war debt at home is estimated at
45 per cent of the wealth of the German
empire before the war and thstt wealth
has undoubtedly shrunk perceptibly.
The United States will claim damages
from Germany and will get at least a
part of its claim. The kaiser and his
war lords announced at the beginning
and several times during the war that
"the conquered nations will pay for this
war and generations yet unborn will
stagger under the weight of that debt."
For once the kaiser spoke truly.
Germany has lost in killed more than
one and three-quarter millions of men.
She has had four millions wounded.
She has lost her navy and all her col
onies and will lose additional territory.
She has lost the respect and confidence
6f the people of every nation of the
world. She can never again build up a
trade with any of these countries for
"made in Germany" which, in former
years sold goods everywhere, will pre
vent their sale for generations.
Germany is today in worse condition
than Belgium, Serbia or any of the coun
tries that were engaged in the war and
-he will remain in that condition for
many years. She "sowed the
wind'' and now she is to "reap the whirl
The investigation at Pullman is un
Pullman and Washington
State college had a hard scourge of the
influenza and there were many deaths
(more than SO), and it is not surprising
that relatives of those who died should
feel resentful. But it seems the wrong
tactics were used by the college author
ities and the people of Pullman. They
did not cö-operate with the bereaved
relatives in trying to get at the facts,
hut began at once to try to discredit the
man who made the charges and to try
to disprove his statements. How much
better it would have been for Pullman
had Professor Sanborn, who makes such
serious charges against the institution
and the management of the influenza
quarantine and the care of the sick, been
given the assistance, the kind treatment
and the courtesy that was given Mr.
Fraser, of Jerome, Idaho, whose son
died after leaving the University or
Idaho, and who felt probably as badly
and as deeply resentful as Professor
Sanborn until he learned the true con
ditions. Today Mr. Fraser is a warm
friend and supporter instead of an
enemy of the school.
While the surrender of the German
fleet, from a military standpoint is a
great victory, from a financial standpoint
it is really a loss to the Allies. What
will we do with 200 or 300 submarines?
It is to be fervently hoped that there
will never be a time when they can be
used. Surely not within the life of the
present generation or the life of the
submarines which are now being sur
rendered, will these instruments of mur
der ever be needed. It is to be hoped
that no one now living will ever again
see a battle ship, a battle cruiser, a tor
pedo boat destroj'er or a submarine en
gaged in actual warfare and fighting
ships, like guns and cannons, are good
for only one thing—to destroy. The up
keep of these ships will add much to the
cost of the governments which get them,
but we are all glad to take them from
the Germans who are probably the only
persons in the world who would ever
want to use them again.
Even the "busy little bee" which we
were taught in our childhood "improved
each shining hour and gathered honey
all the day from every opening flower"
lias joined the steel trust and the air
plane manufacturer in profiteering be
cause of the war, While no one will
claim that it costs more to feed bees
now than before the war, the price
honey has jumped from 10 cents to
almost SO cents a pound. With a quart
of strained honey selling for $1.25 to
$1.35 as compared with the price of
honey a few years ago, when it sold at
from 75 cents to $1 per gallon, one can
not help feeling that the "huzzy little
bee" or his owner has imbibed some of
the "get-rich-while-the-war-lasts" germs
which are pervading mankind generally.
