RAISING TELEPHONE RATES.
Next week a hearing will be held in
Moscow on the application of the Mos
cow Telephone & Telegraph company
for permission to increase its rates in
town and on the rural lines. Naturally
the people of Moscow oppose such an
Increase. They are getting tired of hav
ing the price of everything they use
raised. There will be strong opposition
to the petition which will be considered
iy the public utilities commission of the
The tendency to raise the price of eve
rything is being carried so far that the
people are becoming resentful. Govern
ment control of railroads resulted in an
*1 vanee of about 20 per cent in freight
Did passenger rates and a great de
fcrioration in the quality of the serv
ies rendered. Now the government has
taken over control of the telegraph lines
and the first thing that is done is to
ask an increase of rates.
Spokane is fighting the telephone
trust there, which has been granted per
mission to raise its rates and the mayor
and city attorney have gone to Washing
ton to take the matter up personally
with Postmaster General Burleson. In
the meantime more than 4300 patroiis of
the Spokane telephone have signed
an agreement to discontinue patroniz
ing the company, so that if the com
pany wins in its fight to hold the rates
at the present high level it will fie a
heavy loser and the people of Spokane
will not have as good a service as they
had in the past. There will be more
than 4300 homes or business houses
•without telephone service and the loss
of revenue from these will more than
offset the increased rates charged those
who continue to patronize the company
because they cannot help it.
LET US HAVE PATIENCE.
There is much merit in the commun
ication by the Rev. J. Quincy Biggs,
of the Christian church, published else
where in this issue in regard to the late
ness of the announcement that there
would be no Sunday school in Moscow
yesterday. The ministers naturally feel
aggreived and, as the Rev. Mr. Biggi
says that they "did not get a square

officers are very busy. They are work

lives of those who are afflicted. Every
doctor in Moscow has worked unceas

influenza. They have had little rest and
little time to prepare notices to the

EVENTUALLY, WHY NOT NOW?
The United States will eventually
have to take over the government of
Mexico. Why not do it now, or as soon
as "the hoys get home"? We cannot
stand the Mexican government as a
neighbor. That country is as unfit for
seltf-government as is Russia, under
Bolshevik! control. As long as Mex
ico is governed by Mexicans our south
ern border will not be safe. We should
take over that country and make it safe
for white people to live in. We can
do it now. with impunity. Had we start
ed before the great European war we
would have had Japan to fight. Now it
is different. With our army and navy
developed to their present strength and
our power so well known, no other
country would dare interfere.
If we do not take Mexico over and
govern it we should at least use the air
planes built for service in Europe to
defend our southern border. If the Uni
ted States will station a few American
"aces" with modern fighting planes
armed with-machine guns along the line
between the United States and Mexico,
with telephonic or telegraphic connec
tion every mile and give these men in
structions to follow the first Mexican
raiding party across, the line into Mex
ico and continue until the last of the
bandits is killed, the raiding of Amer
ican farms find cattle ranches will
cease. There will he use for these air
planes in that country and the Mexicans
need the lesson.

The general was a soldierly figure,

first class oar were the members of
his staff. The day was hot and the
voyage uneventful until the train
pulled up at a junction.
On the adjoining track was a train
going in the opposite direction. The
general's carriage came to a halt di
rectly opposite the third class com
partments, filled with peasants in
their quaint costumes and bonnets.
The general leaned out interestedly
and surveyed the assorted crowd. As
he leaned out a comely young girl in

amid the discreet snickers of the mem

rest of the car.
