On one side we have the word of General John J. Pershing, the hero of the American army, backed by surgeons, medical officers and army ' officers and civilians, including priests and Chaplains of various denominations, that the conditions at Brest are good, and statistics, giving the number of men who passed through the great camp and the number who have died, show the death rate per 1000 to be very Opposed to General Pershing and the others mentioned we have the word of a renegade newspaper man who was court martialed and convict ed and degraded for having struck a private soldier while under arrest and for using vile and abusive language to privates when under arrest and for "conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman," that conditions at Brest are deplorable; that the Ameri can soldiers are camped on mud flats and are dying by the thousands be cause of neglect. These statements made by this degraded officer whose punishment the reviewing court has said was entirely too mild for the of fense committed, have been given the widest publicity . The officer was a newspaper man and he knew the value of advertising and how to get pub licity and he secured it. His story is being peddled and enlarged by Gov ernor Allen, of Kansas who spent a few days in France and discovered that the American army was not properly managed and that every thing was wrong but him, and by the press. ■ ■; Si Primrose Montana Hard Wheat Patent FLOUR JUST AS IT WAS BEFORE THE WAR $ 2.90 $11.40 Per Sack ,. . ... ....

They know and they love "Black Jack" Pershing, who loves his men as a father loves his sons, and they know he would not stand for any such treatment for American sol diers, much less deny it and try to shield those who were responsible if the charges were true. We must eith er believe that Pershing, the other army officers, the chaplains and the civilians have lied or that the sensa tional charges are entirely false. We have no hesitancy in saying that the American people will accept the word of the man who won the war and whipped the Hun in preference to that of the man discharged from the army and sent home in disgrace for abus ing the private soldiers under his command. bb fe ss HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF. We all remember how a filibuster, led by R. M. La Follette, and 11 j others prevented« needed legislation and stopped the United States from preparing for the war a year before they did. We remember, also, how these men were branded as "The Wil ful Twelve'' and their work was con demned by the people. Elections since that time have eliminated from public life, eight of that "Wilful Twelve" and the others were saved because no elections have been held in their states. The ad ministration "went over the heads" of these senators, appealed directly to the people and the people responded. There will be no elections for two years "for all of which and more too," certain senators who conducted a fili buster in the senate recently may well feel thankful. But Will the people forget before the next election? Time will tell. ADLER-I-KA AGAIN! "I had a bad case of constipation, gas on the stomach, and other bowel trouble.

Road construction, school develop ment, construction of fish hatcheries, the territor's license form of taxation, and renewed consideration of an eight-hour labor law, it is conceded, will hold first place in legislative discussion. The last Alaskan legislature appro priated $400,000 for construction of roads, and as roads are considered the paramount need of the territory, leg islators believe an even larger appro priation may be granted at this ses sion. » ' More than $500,000 were appropri ated by the last legislature for main tenance and establishment of schools in every community having more white children, as well assisting schools in incorporated towns and for the construction of the new Agricultural College and School of Mines at Fairbanks. The same liberal policy in regard to education ten or as for al matters, legislators believe, will prevail this year. The power of Alaska's legislature over Alaska fisheries—-the greatest in the world—is very limited. How ever, it is believed that consideration will be given to the conservation of the fisheries more along the lines of development than those of pure con servation. One of the first bills to be introduced, according to Representa tice James P. Daly of Nome, will be one providing for the construction of hatcheries. Decision as to the validity of Alas ka's license form of taxation, which has met stern opposition, has not yet been rendered by the United States supreme court If the law is declared invalid some other form of taxation will have to be devised, and several legislators believe this would be in the form of a general property tax. If the latter form of taxation should become necessary, it is conceded that it will bear heavily on some of the large quartz mine properties, par ticularly on those not yet in the div idend class. Alaska's last legislature passed a general eight-hour law in compliance with the result of a popular referen dum vote. The law gave the govern or power to suspend its operation at the request of the National Council of Defense, and this suspension was ordered during the war period in so far as it affected employment in the fishing industry. The law was then declared invalid by the United States district court of the Fourth Division of Alaska, on the ground that an eight-hour law covering all employ ments and inflicting penalties for vi olations except where life or property was endangered, was illegal, tice of appeal to the supreme court was given, but the United States so licitor-general ordered that the ap peal be "not perfected. Because of the conflict between the expressed wish of the voters and the decision of the court, legislators say much consideration will have to be given this subject at this session.
