THE CAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE ; AND THE CAPE COUNTY HERALD Eyery Friday by THE CAPE GIRARDEAU PUBLISHING COMPANY JAMES P. WHITESIDE, Editor. ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCI THRIFT WITH A PURPOSE. Thrift is a means to a commendable end. Least of all countries Las i been "nurtured in the United States. Because of war we are now bep'rmlnj to cultivate a habit that has been for two generations the most consplou pus in French national life and more recently had been implanted in th mind of the Italian peasant. The most prominent apostles of th, irt i. America have been the aliens whose savings and remittances during tit past 15 years have averaged as much as $250,000,000 per annum. The present incentive for thrift is a means for successfully ending th war. Stamps is the major element of patriotism the giving of the small est mite to establish democracy over autocracy. The unit of part li-ipa'.i oi is little enough, to be within the means of all. The idea is to reach nJ' The campaign begins with the child and works upward. This is the try and only lasting foundation in which to buiid the ' structure of ealioan thrift. Coupled with, patriotism in the incentive to thrift it is well to h:.v : purpose. JJy this is meant an objective for the capital accumulate through thrift. This makes the saving easier. It also gives it ni"- c-.. sistency and develops a greater pers sieacy. Go back to the child, say, a good, healthy-minded, robust boy " 12 c 1". He is one of a family in modest circumstances. Apparently his ikan.-e for more than a high school education are limited. Between him ' a;u? th college period are live or six years. Any boy of this age who is pi y.-iiaT able can in these times earn from $100 to $150 a year and not ne: - !: school work. With each year's added strength and judgment his e-..n-power becomes cumulative. It is like the interest on the War having Stamps which his earnings buy. In li2.". the War Savings Stara-;.; .vi mature and those boys with the patriotic impulse, plus- the delinit a. : tional purpose, wly have begun to bjy them will have a substant i far to pay for at least a good part of their tuition. The same applies to :S girl, for whom avenues uf employment are now open on a large s. :.! The parent who is able ought to be willing and proud to .e.; it child part way over the rough .-pots of the future, and for every ilolla saved by th" latter and invested in War Savings Stamps as ar. !a-J tional fund to give another dollar or a potion of a dollar. This v j itself excite a spirit ef competition an;! provide that incentive n nvJii'; to carry ecry program along without lagging. THE SKWKU AND THE BRIDGE. ".' At the mass meeting last night one argument was offered ajrani. the issuance of bonds to bridge th'- Hock Levee Road, it was this : "?h terial is too high; wait until after tie war.- That is what the pee.ii argued against the construction of the West End sewer." This is an argument; against a city sower, but it is prattle wm n a; plied to the fcridge. Cape Girardeau has existed more than one irumiie years without a Wet End sewer. Ther Wait until aftr the war to begin its construction, if necessary. The Rock Levee Road has been the prmcipa l.i.-fav.ay running :nf Cape Girardeau for half a century. The ditches were only run til:0i;irl; i a shoil time ago and the bridges washed away only a few weeks j: o. I is now closed. We cannot go to th- counties beiow us and the rr .den; cf those counties cannot visit us. That is the point in controversy. If Cape Girardeau is satisfied to lose all of the i radii that !i: h ..-m coming to this city for the many years past, then it i - proper to ..oau hi; the Rock Levee Road. To wait until after the war ii.cans. of co: .-'.. t drive the patronage of Scott, Mississippi and other counties to C;:i?o. It must not be overlooked that we gt comparatively no trace fn-tt the north. The residents of Jackson do not buy great tuantitit s - r. Cape Giianieau is dependent upon its own residents --ind the resit-- ; -t-the counties below us. While this is not exclusively the rale, it . safely said that ninety per cent of our tiade is derived from llv sources. If vc compel the peojde of the lower counties to keep oil of Cap Girardeau, then this city must depend v.ym the people in this crty for it .-uppoit. How many business houi"., in this city would prosper unde such conditions? How long wouM it be until property would decrease' How long would our buildings be oc.-uvied. Answer llysi; cjuestions an you have an argument in favor of the bond issue. THE BOND ISSi'E PROJECT. The efforts of The Tribune in bvhaif of tlv-1 bond issue for a Rod Levee bridge have brought results. While there is no credit due thh newspaper for supporting a movement of such immense importance, there is a sense of satisfaction to know th it the people have been so quick tc respond. In discussing the bond issue it must be remembered that either th project must be voted by the people or this city cannot continue to pros per. Thore is but one way to get a bridge over the drainage ditihes ant that is by the issuance of bonds. The on y argument that hat been adai;i-ed against the bridge is thai the people should rot be compelled to Laiid it. If it cou'd be constructed in another way. ily Tribune would favor it. but we must have a bridge and there is but one way to get it an 1 that is by the public paying for it To oppose a project of this character simply because you do not T licve the people should pay for it is on a par with cutting off your nose to spite your face. The people cannot gain anything by opposing this par ticular bond issue, but they are sure to lose much. There will be a mass meeting held at the Court House next Wednes day evening for the purpose of discus -ing the bridge question. Those "vho oppose it should be there. Thos who favor it will be present. THE WATERWAYS PROBLEM. The railroads are organizing to oppose the government' the waterways of the nation, especially the Mississippi River. W. H Dixby, IJrigadier Gcneial, U. S. Army, retiied, now President of the Mis sissippi iiiver Commission, has issued a warning to the cities situated a!or?g th"? Missis.-ippi, urging them to join in an effort to offset the dam age the railroad magnates aie doing. Th railroads claim that the Mississippi from St. Louis to Cairo, and from Cairo to New Orjt-ans is too shallow to be used for the purposes pro posed by the government. - - The government projects provide throughout the year for a continu ous channel of 200 feet width and 8 feet depth from St. Louis to Cairo, and of 250 feet width and 0 feet depth from Cairo to Xew Orleans. This chan nel can be maintained except when the river is blocked by ice. The official records show that there is an eight-foot channel from St. Ivou's 'to Cairo and nine feet from Cairo to Xew Orleans. This is an av erage covering a term of years, and is taken from the official records of United States engineers. The railroads are working to maintain a monopoly on transportation in the United States. If the government decides to take advantage of the great energy of our waterways, it will compel the railroads to reduce freight rates and will reduce Tailroad profits. Steamboats are more difficult to sidetrack than railroad cars, which would mean that freight would be handled faster by water than on land. eminent to utilize the nation's waterways, and every city along one of ! "the large rivers shou'.d do its part to brisg this progressive movement to pass. Cape Girardeau is one of the few cltie that ha3 refused to ce-oper-ate. r.o immediate demand for plan to utilize Who wm Be Most Benefitted If Gape Girardeau Holds And Ex tends Its Trade Territory? A study of the industrial situation j ;f Cape Girardeau makes two or , conditions very plain.

The euaie ui iu"""r ...., " ufacturer, merchant, banker, profes- "" F"ijr,-. """' take in a vital way. Since all of us will be benefited by building these roads and bridges then who should build them? This question will be discussed later. 7-1 YOUNG MEN REGISTER FOR WAR Washington, June 13 Nearly com- plete returns to the provost marshal jreral's office show that 744,863 young Americans who have become is 200.721 below the estimate of the Census Bureau, but smce more than mn.0C0 unregistered 21-year-olds al- ready arc enlisted in the army, navy, or Marine Corps, the military author- . number of 21-year-old me nenlisted at 208,588. ..This figure, combined .with the falHpg off in alien registra- t'on, gives a 'total of 3g3,686, which means that the Census Bureau appar- ently missed the number of eligibles by only 1-,000. and July, and not send one bushel abroad.
