THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND CAPE COUNTY HEKALD, I RIDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1915.
- 1 IJ' " M THE CAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE PERRYVILLE AND THE CAPE COUNTY HERALD Efery Friday by THE CAPE GIRARDEAU PUBLISHING COMPANY. JAMES P. WHITESIDE, Editor. ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCE IT IS TIME FOR AN EMBARGO ON ARMS. The failure of a Pittsburgh. Pa., bank with deposits aggregating more ti an $11,000,000. is evidence that conditions in the United States are not v. hat they should be. According to official financial reports, business is more stagnant in the Ka.-t than it is in the Middle West and the West. Business conditions are most cramped in those districts which for the past .-ixfcen months have been manufacturing munitions of war. Banks in this section of the country have more cash on hand than they have had for many y rs. This condition prevails from the Mississippi to the western coast. The shortage of money in the United States today is limited to the New Fng!and state.-, where great industries are working night and day to produce war material. Ordinarily, it would be as profitable to manufacture shells as it would be clothing, but when the output of big factories is shipped to foreign lands and sold on credit, it usually produces a strained financial condition. The money shortage in the cast today is due to the fact that the money is going out, but none coming in. England, who buys ninety per cent of all Ike munitions of war the plants in the United States have to sell, is bank t.ipt. She i.- out of cash and s getting war material over here in exchange for I. 0. U's. While the war lasts. Great Britain's financial condition will not improve, .- rid consequently, her credit over here will increase with every order that the American plants fill. Someone must carry this load for England, and upon whom does the burden rest? The big banks of the Ka.-t are lending money to the munition plants to ;.ay salaries and the bills for material. But how long can they continue to ',:y these bills.' Ci rtainly not forever. And when they become unable to any the burden any longer, the banks collapse and who loses? The de positors, and in the collapse of the Pittsburgh bank, 41,000 school children lost what they had on deposit. An embargo on arms would les.ven the danger of future financial dis ; -teis. and it would end the turmoil among the people who make up the teem ing millions in this country. Legally, it was right to sell arms to the belli g rents, because in times of peace all of the warring nations approved this t'-aiT:e. But our shipmt nt of instruments of slaughter have not brought the i':tiict to a c'o.-o. and .n the other hand, it may be only prolonging it. Whi n the revolution broke out in Mi xico, the United States permitted i he skipiivnt of war material to the various factions, believing that am it unition would end the chaos. When it did not, the United States placed an air tight embargo on the shipment of every instrument of slaughter, in the interest of humanity. The Unitid States government has. since the beginning of hostilities in Europe, placed the interest of humanity above everything else. Humanity i: being outraged every hour in Europe. The victorious nations will be 1 esivy losers if the war should end today-, but the sooner it ends, the sooner wilt come a blessing to all mankind. By supplying ammunition to one faction, the United States has not .d-Miieed the interests of humanity, and it has not brought peace within the ; rasp of Europe. If the ruling heads of this government are anxious to assist humanity, why not place an embargo on arms, even if only temporaril iy? An! if cash is plated above humanity, England's I. O. U.'s. ought to g-.i to protest. HAN REGENT OF NORMAL Louis Houck Wins Victory. Over W. H. Stubblefield Hi's Old Foe. IS NICHOLS FAINTS DURING RUMPUS WITH T. J. JUDEN JUDEN WON'T TAKE P. 0.

Kris Krinkle c.'.iks above kings, emperors or presidents, and girl or boy who has faith in obi man with the reindeers, never quite outgrows it. Take Santa from hristmas and its most attractive feature is gone, and childhood is robbed of .- character which is as essential to youth as short dresses and knee pants. No one gets too old to think .sentimentally of the days when he or she 1. me; a stocking by the old tin- place to be filled by the mysterious stranger, who entered through the flue and vanished with the winds. Was there ever a wider or more loving conspiracy than that which keeps t'ie venerable figure of Santa Claus from slipping away, with all the other old ti-ise myths, into the forsaken wonderland of the past? Of all the person ;.; s whose marvelous doings once tilled the minds of men he alone survives. He ha.- outlived all the great gods, and all the impressive and poetic con-.-ption.-; which once flitted between heaven and earth these have gone but .Santa Claus remains by virtue of a common understanding that childhood i hall not be despoiled of oiv f its most cherished beliefs, either by the my- j t o!o;rist, with his sun myth theory, or the scientist, with his heartless diatribe : gidnst superstition. There is a good deal more to be said on this subject if this were the place say it. Kven siqiorstition has its uses and sometimes its sound heart of t "ut.ii. He who does not see in the legend of Santa Claus a beautiful faith on ::'e side and the na ve embodiment of a divine fact on the other is not fit to 1- ive a place at the Christmas board. For him there should lo neither care! nor holly nor mistletoe. They only shall keep the feast to whom all these things are but the outward and visible signs of an inward and spiritual grace. Like the sun and moon, Santa Claus looks th ,-anie wherever he is seen. If5 smiles as sweetly in Cape Girardeau as he does in Hong Kong, and if the li'tle boys ami girls in every land had their way.
