A merchant relates the following:

The President’s War Message
From every part of the nation,
comes approval of President Wilson’s
message to Congress, asking that a
state of war he declared between this
country and Germany.
The most notable endorsements
come from Former Presidents Roose
velt and Taft. The latter pronounces
it a great historical state document
in the following words: -
“The President's message is an ad
mirable setting fortii of the causes
that must lead the United States into
a declaration of war. It is a great
iiistorical state paper. Its approval
of universal compulsory service and
of a close practical alliance witii
England, France and Russia in over
coming Prussian militarism shows
the President’s determination that
the country when in war shall wage
it effectively.
“The entente allies are now fight
ing our battles as well as tiie battles
of the world progress and we should
be recreant to every principle of
honor and decency if we do not sub
scribe to the President’s policy in a
Arm union in this war with France,
England, Russia, Italy and their
Former President Roosevelt, in
discussing the message, character
izes it as a great state paper in the
following language:
“The President’s message is a great
state paper, which will rank in his
tory among the great papers of
which Americans in future years will
be proud. It now rests with the peo
ple of the country to see that we put
in practice the policy the President
lias outlined and that we strike hard,
as soon and as effectively as possible
in aggressive war against the gov
ernment of Germany.”
At a time when Taft and Roosevelt,
former presidents of the republic,
although different from President
Wilson in politics and many of his
policies, tlius come to his support
witii broad and patriotic statements,
the solidarity of the mass of the peo
ple is assured for the enforcement of
the rights of our citizens and the en
tire national spirit for those vigorous
measures worthy the dignity of our
country and our loyalty to the flag.
A Washington dispathh says:
“Attorney General Gregory issued
a characteristic pronunciamento that
German subjects have nothing to
fear if they obey the laws and ‘keep
their mouths shut.’ ”
German philosphy Is |
thing. We have long been of that
opinion and have thought that some
time we would dip into it and see
which way it led. But there is no
further need of investigation. The
German chancellor has illustrated it
for our edification. “Germany," he
announces, “will continue her pro
gram of undersea warfare without
modification, and if the United
States regards this a cause of war the
responsibility will not rest with
Germany.” A charming philosophy,
in truth. Germany may kill our men,
women and children at will, but if
we take offense, that’s our fault!

seem to be a calamity may later turn

Some Plain Truths
The able and brilliant Senator
Williams of Mississippi, in replying
to Senator La Follette, said, among
other things:
“The senator from Wisconsin la
bored to establish an identity of pur
pose and action in the violations of
our neutral rights by Great Britain
and Germany. He proved he did not
know the difference between a prize
court and a torpedo. Great Britain
has drowned none of our citizens.
“I am little tired of utterances like
that of the senator from Wisconsin
denouncing the entente allies. He en
deavors to twist the British lion's
tail. Demagogues have been doing
that ever since the revolution, but It
is a matter of history that most of
the people of Knglaud were against
the war on the colonies.
“Which would you rather do, light
Germany now with France and Great
Britain and Russia or fight tier alone
later? You’ve got to do one or the
other. I tell you if Germany does
win that fight on the continent of
Europe, she will begin building and
getting ready to whip us unless the
English fleet prevents it.”
Referring to the Wisconsin sena
tor's statement that the United
States has nothing to lose no matter
which side wins the war, Senator
Williams said:
'“Let’s see; have we no honor, no
regard for the future sovereignty of
our country, no regard for our flag?
Ia sentiment rot; is patriotism rot; is
there nothing precious except money?
“I’m getting tired of this talk that
this is a Wall street war. That’s a
lie. Wall street did not sink the
Lusitania, the Arabic, the Sussex,
and those other ships. I’m tired of
lies like that and I think it is the
duty of the American congress and
people to brand them as lies."
Senator Hardwick of Georgia said
the war resolution must pass “not
because the American people or con
gress desire war, but because it is an
imperative necessity.’’
“The people want peace, but not at
expense of national honor or national
safety,” he said.
Other senators, regardless of party,
both from the north, south, east and
west, spoke along similar lines.
The Right Stuff
Anxious to fight, but fearing that
that his age would prove a bar to his
enlistment for service, Thomas J.
Walker, 4401 McPherson avenue, St.
Louis, has written to Major General
George Barnett, commandant of the
United States Marine corps.
Walker wrote: “I am sixty-one
years old, healthy, active, temperate
and reliable. I wish to offer my ser
vices in some capacity—shore, river,
deep sea or otherwise.”
The recent rush in recruiting has
brought many odd types of both
sexes to the Marine corps recruiting
stations. Like Walker, many have
expressed a willingness to “do their
bit” wherever duty calls, whether it
be “shore, river, deep sea or other
A Patriotic and Sensible German

The editorial reads in part:
“The die is cast, and we of.German
descent rejoice that we are privileged

land worth giving up life and fortune
to maintain its domain against any
foreign invasion. We urge our fellow
citizens, as we have done in the past,
to stand by our country and our flag.”

Through the Royal Gorge, a chap
ter from Rev. David M. Steele’s new
book, “Going Abroad Overland,” lias
been published in a beautiful illus
trated leaflet by the Denver A Rio
Graude. Dr. Steele graphically de
scribes the wonders of the natural
scenery thereabouts, and pays a
splendid tribute to the pathfinders
who blazed out this trail —the scouts,
reconnoiterers, surveyors and con
struction gangs who gave this rail
road being, and the men who today
make the wheels go round.
