I All rights of republication of •pecial dispatches herein are also re served. LET US HAVE THE FACTS. For nearly two weeks the editor has been besieged with rumors and inquiries about alleged relations of two prominent citizens of Moscow with a girl of tender years. We have been accused of "suppressing the facts and shielding criminals." kave been made by persons totally ignorant of the facts in the case who •vidently are bent upon injuring these two men. They do not seem to re alize that it is a serious offense to charge a man with a crime of this Wnd, a charge that would bring last ing disgrace upon the innocent chil dren, the wives and other relatives. "Why don't you published the facts The charges about this case?" is a question we have been asked repeatedly. Today we are publishing the facts which are that there is absolutely no grounds for such charges being made and that the stories are evidently circulated kith malicous intent. The Star-Mirror is not "suppress ing the facts" nor is it "shielding criminals." But it is equally true that it is not libeling and slandering respectable citizens, or publishing mere rumors with no foundation of fact. The editor of The Star-Mirror made a personal and thorough investi gation of these rumors. It seems that he and the officers are the only per sons who did investigate and they found the charges absolutely false. People who could have learned this by investigation, made no effort to get at the facts but continued to repeat the stories which constantly grew as they were repeated. The Star-Mir ror will publish the facts in all mat ters of public interest in Moscow. If a person is'arrested, no matter how prominent he or she may be, the facts (not rumors) will be published, ! but this paper will be sure that it has | the facts as shown by court records : S55 Health in the Mornind Dish é ■aïs i II x A FOOD 9 g When you eat; for breakfast you combine a dish of dreat enjoyment with solidibod value.

A woman sent us a communication for the ''contribution box" about mis case. She says she showed it to ''more than 200 citizens" before sending it to The Star-Mirror and "they all ap proved it." We would suggest that it | 1 would have been much less trouble to have gone to the court house and as certained that the story had no foundation in fact, than to have writ ten the charges and taken them to "over 200 citizens." Her communica tion will not be published for the rea son that it is libelous and would 1 cause both The Star-Mirror and the | woman , w ho wrote the article to de I, , , ., fend a llbel suit ' PS Ä Ä ! GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP AGAIN The labor unions have demanded government ownership of all railroads. | This is logical, from a labor union stand-point. Railroad employes, who organized into strong unions, have , ... , ,, ba £ their wages increased 48 per cent and their working hours reduced un der government control. Why should they not want the roads to be perm anently governed by a government which has been as liberal as has our government been to them. The rail road unions claim to control 1,000,000 votes and with the aid of other unions could practically control elections. If the government were to take perm anent control of the railroads we might expect still further reduction in working hours, with corresponding increase in wages and freight and passenger rates. Since the government took control of the railroads wages have been in creased 48 per cent on an average for | all railroad employes while freight and passenger rates have been in creased and the railroads are not ma king expenses. Already $500,000,000 have been appropriated for the rail roads in addition to the increased permitted to hold public meetings, or ganize and work under the very noses of government officials? rates for passenger and freight serv ice, and a further request for $1,200, 000,000 has been made l*y the railroad administration. In addition to this vast sum, almost two billion dollars , , ^ , to come out of the pockets of the Am paying higher rates for a poorer service, Di , . , , .i day that 'only by increasing freight and passenger rates can the railroads be made self-sustaining under govern ment control." No doubt the labor unions want gov ernment control of all public utilities for that would mean their control by the unions through political "pull." But the people have had more than enough government control and want to get back to a business basis. erican people in addition to rector General Hines stated yester It seems F ; r:>. How many more bomb outrages will be permitted before this government awakens to the fact that it has been too lenient with the I. W. W., bol shevists and anarchists who have been strange that a score of deadly bombs could be sent through one postoffice and the "secret service" men of the federal government be unable to find a single clue in 30 days. In the mean time anarchist, bolshevist and 1. W. W. meetings are being held in almost every state in the union and men and women are permitted to preach ( destruction of the government without being punished for it. Send a lot of these agitators to the penitentiary and there would be less of attempted bomb explosions in the United States. AVhat we need is a law making it a penitentiary offense to advocate the overthrow of the government and then have the law enforced. fr; P3 P'S That President Wilson does not really favor the repeal of thq war-time prohibition law as it affects beer and wine, but merely wanted to "pass the buck" to the republican majority in congress, is claimed by some of the wise ones. If this is true he certain ly handed the republicans a lemon which they would be glad to hand back to him or pass on to some one else. IBS' TWICE PROVEN If you suffer backache, sleepless nights, tired, dull days and distress ing urinary disorders, don't experi ment. Read this twice-told testimony. It's Moscow evidence—doubly proven. Mrs. W, H. Beardsley, 309 North Washington St., Moscow, says. "For years I suffered from rheumatic pains and my limbs ached. My ankles were weak and I couldn't walk very well. I suffered from bladder trou ble, too. Whenever I felt an attack of the trouble coming on, I used Doan's Kidney Pills and they gave me relief." (Statement given April 28, 1910). Relies on Doan's. On June 22, 1917, Mrs. Beardsley said: "I find it necessary to use Doan's Kidney Pills at times and I always get the same, good results." Price 60c, at all dealers.
