' In anticipation of raids by so-called ""po88um hunters" protective measures have been taken by various eommani ties in Hopkins County, Ky., a civic guard having been formad at Earling too, where guns were given out. It is denied that a special grand jury is Jto investigate the outrages at Carbondale and White City. Violent attacks of the Germans were repulsed on the Aisne, and ground pre viously lost regained, according to the French report. The Germans are press ing nearer Paris at Soiasons and claim to have captured many prisoners. Practically complete reports from the leading ports of the United States show that the exports for October will exceed the imports by more than $33,000,000, the freer movement of cotton contrib uting to this result. The Administration will not use its influence to prevent foreign loans. It is reported that Germany and Russia both want to establish credits here for the purchase of 1100,000,000 worth of supplies. , Some opposition has been shown by the Panama Assembly to the ceding of Colon harbor tc the United States. JQ A Liberty-Loving People starving to ue&in. Three months ago 7,000,000 people 61!ed the cities, fields, factories and mines of Belgium. That land, scarcely as large as West Tennessee, teemed with life and activity. The miniature kingdom mirrored everything that was useful and beauti ful. Belgian commerce extended into the four quarters of the world. Belgian manufacturers and farmers excelled in applying scientific knowledge to their labor. Belgian writers, poets aud musicians went out of their country aud made richer France aud England and Germany and America with the prose of Maeterlinck and with the tone and color poems of musicians and paiuters. a The Belgians had developed the science of government into a high state of ex etlleuce. Millions of the Belgians were poor, but iu that country it had been so arrauged that there was work for every body at a wage sufficient to provide for the man aud his family, with a surplus for old age. 1 Iu Belgium the spirit of brotherhood was broad. It manifested itself in fra ternities, in business associations and in co-operative societies of workingmen. To-day Belgium has been over whelmed by an army that furnished for invasion ten soldiers to each defender. The colossal foot of the Prussian covers all the laud except the marshes near Duukirk and Osteud The seat of the government is in Frauce. The heart of the government is in the little army that is standing faithful along the cauals of West Fland ers. The king divides his time between his army aud the temporary capital. It is said that 5,000,000 Belgians are homeless. A million Belgians are in exile. The nation is starving to death. All the sophisms about the Belgians in any way being responsible for the war is the most arrant hypocrisy. Germany ! invaded Belgium because Belgium was small and Germany was a giant, and through Belgium was an apparently open road to Paris. A treaty existed between France and Germany aud Great Britain which sol emnly guaranteed the integrity and neutrality of the kingdom. The French have built up a line of forts along their frontier which until to day the flower of the German army has not been able to break through. Belgium was an easier path. Belgium found the Germans over her frontier. They resisted as a brave peo ple or as a brave man will resist when one attacks his home. Had the Germans been content to beat their armies and then march through the county the present horror might not exist. The Germans not only killed their soldiers but ate the food of the civilians and laid a tribute upon the Belgian cities. The Germans, after beating their armies, 'devoured their substance. If the Germans had left the Belgian food supply intact for the Bel gian people the Belgians might not now be an object of charity. It is the duty of the Germans to supply the Belgians in the conquered proviuces with food, but the Germans do not discharge that duty What matters it if 7,000,000 people starve when the propaganda for German culture is on? The king of Belgium has made an appeal to the American people iu be half of his starving subjects. How vain is that foreign charity which, expends money for the well-being of the soldiers of France and the soldiers of Germany and the boldiers of .England when old men aud women and children are starving because of this war, with which they had uothiug to do. The German people are behind the Ger man armies. The French and the Fug lisb deliberately accepted the Kaiser's war challenge. All three warring na tions knew the direful results that would follow. They elected to accept them. They then should be prepared to care for their own wounded and their own civilian destitute.. Every dollar that is to go from this country for European relief ought to go first to Belgium. Seven milliou Bel gians should be kept from starvation before the work of relief goes to any other nation. We are told that iu the scheme of Germanic expansion Belgium is to be made a part of the empire. Belgium, then, is to be wiped out if the Kaiser wins. . Unless the Jiaisur wins t.uu the conquered territory will be a waie. The Belgians will die of starvation aud leave a country barren of life Ui be re populated by men aud women who will come down from Prussia aud the Ulnue country. The Americau people love liberty and they enjoy liberty. The Belgians are a Democratic people. Ibey liave strug gled for their liberty in all the centuries since the rise of Democracy. Hey have been true to their ideals and their ideals are those of Democracy. They are now starving because thev preferred to die rather than to be ignobly quiet while a foreigner walked unbidden through their country. They elected to fight because they love liberty. They should not be permitted to starve to death - They are needed in the scheme for the development of that universal Democ racy which will sweep kings and. lords and gunmakers and professional killers from the face of the earth. The appeal that the Belgian king makes to the American people should meet with generous response. Mem phis Commercial Appeal. Thos. J. Bonner & Son, Rives, Tenn., knows about Liv-Ver-Lax. You need it for your liver. advt Postal Banks. The war in Europe is proving a big boon to the postal savings in this coun try. From the very day hostilities opened across the seas postal-savings receipts began to increase by leaps and bounds and withdrawals fell off, a result quite coutrary to the predictions of many well-informed persons who, in their imagination, saw lines of feverish depositors at postoffice pay windows anxious to again return their savings to the boot-leg and body-belt depositories whence they came before intrusted to Uncle Sam. But the forecasters failed to reckon on the absolute confidence of the American citizen, regardless of the flag that first met his eyes, in the abil ity and purpose of the-Government to carry out its obligations, not only among the nations of the earth, but with the humblest citizen of our land. Two important results have followed; thousands of people, largely of foreign birth, accustomed to send their savings abroad, are now patrons of our postal savings system; and enormous sums of actual casl2iave been released for com mercial use among our own people at a time the need for every available dol lar is pressing. The growth of postal savings in the United States has been steady and heal thy and the system has filled an im portant gap between the tin can depos itory and the factory paymaster. On July 1, when affairs were running smoothly here and abroad and the transmission of money across the At lantic was safe and expeditious, there was approximately $43,000,000 of pos tal savings standing to the credit of about 388,000 depositors. Since then over $10,000,000 of deposits have been added and the number of depositors has increased enormously. This un precedented gain is the more striking when it is considered that the net gain in the last three months is larger than the gain for the entire fiscal year 1914. Scores of offices have done more postal savings business since the war has been going on than was done by them dur ing the previous existence of the service. The increases are confined to no special localities, but have been felt in every nook and corner of the country. New York City alone made a gain in Sep tember of more than a million, while Brooklyn showed a relatively big in crease. Chicago reported a larger gain in the past three months than for the previous twelve months; More than 7,000 new accounts were opeued during the period, bringiug the number of de positors in that city up to 21,000. The unexpected increase in postal, savings business has not only added greatly to the administrative duties of the system, but has brought up many new and interesting problems which have called for the careful personal con sideration of Postmaster General Burle son and Governor Dockery, Third As sistant Postmaster General. But their task has been lightened somewhat by the promptness of depository banks in furnishing additional security to meet the abnormal deposits. A number of the very largest banks in the country, which have heretofore declined to quali fy as depositories for postal-savings funds, are now among the eager appli cants for thetn. The deposits at the office in Union City are about two thousand dollars, with twenty-one accouuts. There have been times since the establishment of the system here that the deposits have been greater than at preseut, with a larger number of accounts. .
