TflE WEEKLfr TRIBUNlT AND CAPE COUNTY HERALD, FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 16, 1917.
- ( THE GAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE V ' AND THE CAPE COUNTY HERALD Erery Friday by 5THB CAPE GLCAHDEAD PUBLISHING COMPANY. JAMES P. WHITESIDE, Editor. i ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCE STAMPING OUT SMALLPOX Tfee School Board and the city officials are to be commended for, their determination to prevent an epidemi of smallpox in Cape Girardeau. By compelling all school children to submit to vaecination, the officials took tka enly action- that could insure results. It is difficult to understand why anyone would object to their children being made immune from such a serious disease. Vaccination against con tagions is one of the greatest 'discoveries made by the science of medicine in half a century. It is not only a safeguard to public health but it saves doc tor bins. - Tbe enforcement of compulsory vaccination cannot be too strict. No child should be admitted to any schoo without having been made immune from such diseases as smallpox. There is no field so fertile for epidemics as the school room unless proper precautions are taken. A child suffering from a contagious malady, can inoculate hundreds and they in turn infect a whole city. By vaccinating all of the students is the only way to-hold contagions in check and Cape Girardeau displays wisdom when it enforces this theory. Next to insuring the pupils immunity, the city authorities should see to it that the public is promptly warned against homes where patients are ill with infectious diseases. This has not been heretofore. There are now more than a dozen cases of smallpox, and many of these homes have not been placarded until the disease had almost run its c6urse. This is a crime against public safety. Just to show that a champion cay house where smallpox has been .dis covered and compel every occupant to remain inside until the ban has been lifted. Those "ho ignore this precaution should be promptly placed in a pest house. Just t oihow that a champion can sometimes come back, Nicholas, the deposed Czar of Russia, has been made Emperor of Siberia. This job may net be as good as the position he held this time last year, but as every little bit added to what you got makes just a little bit more, we suspect that the promotion did not give Nick the blues. THE I. V. W. NUISANCE. The I. W. W., an organization that has come into prominence during the past few years, is having its ups and downs. Depredations committed by wembers of this tribe in the est have resulted in many arrests in all sec tions of the country but it remained for Tulsa, Ok., to make an example of these disturbers. A party of seventeen I. W. W. members visited that city and left it wear ing an elaborate dress of tar and feathers. This is an effective way of ex pressing disgust but it does not have a salutary effect. It is one species of mob violence, and is therefore condemned by law. The I. W. W. is an organization that tries to accomplish by force a re form which these members believe to be necessary. Not all of the members of this organization are as radical as some of the leaders,- but the illegal transactions of the few naturally condemn all who affiliate with the order. Some of these fanatics have been accused of destroying crops and burn ing homes in the western states. These crimes have justly incensed the peo ple in every community and the tar and feather party held in Tulsa is one conspicuous result. Many social reforms have been accomplished during the past few years and other evils will be eradicated by natural consequences -in the future, but the American people will never surrender to organizations which carry clubs and apply the torch. . The public tries to be fair and if convinced that if is wrong, evils are remedied, but never by force. The I. W. W. is an unnecessary organization. Any measure or condition that it advocates would be ignored and it is 'very proper that they should ' be. It overrides all law and attempts to force the great independent public to act under fear of violence. The treatment afforded the I. W. W. members in Tulsa, while iot in keeping with respectability, is in harmony with the practices of that per nicious society. When mobs attempt to mete out justice, wrongs are sure to be committed, and a mob is just as contemptible whether it terrifies the innocent or tars and feathers a gang of lawless people. The seventeen I. V. W. men who were driven out of Tulsa can blame no one but themselves. EXTENDING CAPE GIRARDEAU. ' Tht suggestion "recently made that business men of Ulmo, Fornfelt and interurban line between these cities, Cape Girardeau has much that the Tri much that would benefit Cape Girarcfcau. An interurban line operating between Cape Gii'urdeau and these south em neighbors would prove highly beneficial to the residents of the four cities. , . . irznm The people in Ulmo, Forntelt ana Ancell woutd be benefitted by tak ing advantage of the educational facilities that Cape Girardeau enjoys, Punils from these cities could travel Cape in the morning and: return home .and adjacent territoiy could also shop On the other hand. Cape Girardeau would have access to the great rail roads passing over Thebe3 bridge. In other words, it would give Cape Girardeau an outlet to the East and Southwest, and make it possible to get new industries to locate here. The distance between the Tri-Cities than that between the business and residence sections of St. Louis. Business men in St. Louis live -in the suburbs and maintain offices down town. If this can be done in St. Louis, it can be repeated by the people of Cape Girardeau and those who live seven miles south of us. The railroads that pass through these cities to the-South are too im portant to be permitted to run that close to Cape Girardeau without enter ing this city. The time must eventually come when Cape Girardeau will go to those great trunk lines if they will not come here. By building a line to them now, we simply build a link which will bind Cape Girardeau to these sister cities a few miles away. those citie3 to get much which is denied them today, Cape Girardeau would bo cmially benefitted. Such co-operation might extrad Cape Girardeau to the Tri-Cities, but this would not be injurious. A tertr.mal yard eight miles south of a pa latial residence section would be almost Utopian.

Reports from Wisconsin indicate that Governor Philipp wants tp set aside the primaryelection for United States Senator, and with the Jielp of the legislature find a' short-cut by filling the vacancy by an appointment to be made by himself or an election through the legislature. The explanation is that the course would avoid holding a primary election in Wisconsin during :war time." Fur ther than that it would make it almost certain 1 that a Republican Senator would take the place of the deceased Democratic Senator Paul Husting. The governor's plan would act as a complete "shout out" to the Democratic party. That the National Administration is interested is indicated by the fact thai it has been made known that Joseph E. Davies would be "acceptable" to President WilsonT'That is about as far as the White .House is accustomed to commit itself ;but the Wisconsin Dem ocrat in Washington interpret the hint as rather a clear indication that they are expected to get busy and put Mr. Davies into the Senate. Inasmuch as Davies is one of the Democratic leaders, of Wisconsin', there is a hear ty and whole-hearted voluntary sup port of the suggestion that the toga be fitted on his broad , patriotic, American shoulders. Davies was one of the original pro gressive variety of Democrats who helped to bring about the first elec tion' of Woodrow Wilson. He was chosen at the outset of the first Wil son administration as commissioner of corporations and when" that bureau was merged into the federal trade commission, he became chairman and has since been an active member of this organization of the government. which has grown to a place of fore most importance in the industrial, civ il and war time problems of the na tion. Washington itself ha nothing to say about Wisconsin's affairs but if it had it woufld take a lot of pleasure in helping O. K. the White House sug gestion. Raising of Rabbits Urged As a Means of Overcoming Shortage in Food Supply New York cify's women's commit tee on national defense has entered upon a campaign to encourage the raising of rabbits. The committee wonts a little rabbit In every home.' "It is a humble animal," says the ad vocates of trie Idea, "and can be kept in a small wooden box with a screen door for the admission of air. It thrives n food we throw away and on grasses from the roadside." All of this, of course. Is true, and if. as some one has suggested" every one of the 3,000,000 war gardeners of the past season went seriously about the business of rabbit raising there would shortly be a plentiful supply of meat, cheaply produced -and, on the whole, ery palatable, says the Indian apolis News. -"The rabbit," says the committee, "Is as tender and nourishing as chick en. It makes a ravishing stew; It Is delicious in potple, and stuffed rabbit, as the French prepare It, Is a thing to dream of. Farther, the fur of the rab bit can be used for coats and hats, and thus our two great needs something to eat and something to wear will be satisfied If American families will be gin to keep the rabbit In their homes." The prospect Is alluring; the idea Is pleasing. And possibly there arc few practical reasons why the suggestion should not be carried into effect. Sayings of a Cynic. A duck arises and quacks; a quack quacks and then ducks. It isn't the first ove that mat ters, it's the last. A looking-glass is a woiran's worst enemy and best frlenG1.
