WILSON IS RIGHT AGAIN
President Wilson is right again.
His demand that the warships sur
be not sunk, is
based on sound sense and business
judgment. It would be little short
of a crime to sink those magnificent
ships and then spend many millions
of dollars to build others like them.
It would be actual criminality to do
England and the United States and
France and Italy will begin the build
ing of more warships as soon as pos
sible after the final peace treaties are
signed. That program has been defi
nitely mapped out for the United
States. This nation will have a navy
second to none in the world. Great
Britain plans to strengthen her navy,
Her Very existence depends upon her
navy and she knows it better than
•ny one else.
There are some of the finest fight- |
ing ships in the world lying in the I
harbor of the Firth of Fourth, in
Scotland. They have been surrend- 1
«red by Germany to the victorious ,
allies. The terms of surrender re
quired that every ship should be in i
first class condition and experts saw
to it that they were in that condition.
If any one can show any
reason for sinking these ships and
then spending hundreds of millions
of dollars to replace them, we want '
to hear that reason. Divide the ships !
among the allied nations and let them
be put into service as were the great
ocean liners and merchant ships which
• the United States and other countries
took from Germany. It is right and
it is good business.

MOSCOW LATE, AS USUAL.
Moscow, as usual, brings up the |
rear in the war savings stamp drive.
We have ceased to try to fathom the
■aystery of Moscow's slowness in all
such matters. She always comes un
der the wire in time, but it takes so
blamed much time it is discouraging.
Genesee, despite a terrible epidemic
of influenza raging at this time, is
oxer the top with her quota and a
good lot to spare. Juliaetta, a small
but enterprising town, was the first
In the county to raise her quota.
Deary, which has been first in sev
eral drives, is making a good record
and so is Bovill, despite the fact that
both towns are in the timber belt and
a large part of the working popu
lation left several months ago when
Hie embargo on eastern shipments of
lumber was announced. Potlatch has
almost her quota raised and will have
it all within a few days.
Why cannot Moscow "get a hump
on'* and do her duty within the next
few days ? She has only a few days
in which to escape being termed
slacker. The quota must be raised
by the evening of December 31.
Moscow raise it?
We bet she will.
NO PAPER CHRISTMAS DAY.
Tomorrow is Christmas and The
Star-Mirror, in common with all other
business enterprises of Moscow, will
observe the day. The office will be
closed during the day and no paper
will be issued. This is to be the great
