Morgan's Bond Raised
The matter of . bail for Irving
Morgan, now confioed in state peni
tentiary at Jefferson City, pending
his appeal to the supreme court,
was taken up oo a writ of habeas
corpus before the supreme court on
Wednesday. February 28. The
state suggested a $18.00000 bond,
while the circuit court had fixed
the bond at $5.00000, the usual
amount in circuit court pending ap
peal. No legal showing at all was
made by the state to the court of
any former default of Morgan
After considering the matter the
supreme court fixed the bond at
$10,00000. which we are informed
will soon be furnished by Morgan's
father and he will be liberated pend
ing his appeal. Shelby Co. Herald.
For the Soldiers
Uncle Sam's boys with the army

Department
Among the supplies just ordered

In the luxuries which the gener
ous Uncle has included in the big
order are 632.000 pounds of jam.
900,000 pounds of candy and 90,000

of the Monroe Mercantile Co in

Wars Must End
A few months ago there was over
whelming determination that wars
must end, and that military autoc
racy and commercial imperialism
must not lift their menacing heads
again. There must be no abandon
ment now of the high resolves of
last snmmer. Germany perhaps
alone of all the nations, when the
tide began to turn at Chateau
Thierry was still possessed of the
devil of arrogance and impelled' by
tribal conceit and ambition. Seem
ingly, Germany has Dot even yet
been sufficiently chastened to be
came in the immediate future a
desirable neighbor. But the Ger
man object lesson will not be lost
upon other nations. Peace is worth
a great price; and friendliness and
generosity are pearls beyond price
between nations as between individ
uals. The fine impulses that the
Allied nations have shown in many
ways during the period of their
sacrifice and trial are to be cherish
ed and maintained. It must be the
privilege of the United States to
help support for the future the un
selfish professions of the recent
past. To the people of Europe
President Wilson has seemed to re
present this highmindedness of the
United States. Whatever influence
helps to make this kind of an at
mosphere for the peace negotiations
is contributing greatly toward the
best results
Skins of wild animals killed in
1918 duriog Uncle Sam's warfare
against predatory pests on the wes
tern ranges have been sold for a
total of $96,000. The extermina
tion of these animals, however, is
noj, for the sake of their skins, but
for the protection of 8 seep and cat
tle. Mrs. Edmund Jaeger went to
Quincy Sunday, she being called
there by the serious illness of her
father J. K. Jarman.
Mrs Mike Sullivan was called to
St. Louis Saturday to attend the
funeral of her brother-in law Wm,
Crossland.
Navy for Security
As events have shaped them
selves, the navies of Great Britain
and the United States are destined
to work in close cooperation; and
they are beyond all question going
to be committed to the support of
conditions, which, while securing;
the safety of the English speaking
world, must also be beneficial to all
other peace keeping nations. The
idea that America, with her im
mense interests in the Atlantic and
Pacific and her guardianship of the
Western Hemisphere,' would give
offense to Great Britian by building
up a strong navy has nothing sub
stantial to rest upon. We owe it to
ourselves and we also owe it to the
world at large to take a full share
in the business of patrolling and
protecting the great common do
main of the seas, which belongs
for freedom of use alike to all na
tions, and which must ultimately
be governed in the full sense by a
League of Nations. It is not likely
that such a league can enter upon
its functions of control over the
oceans for thirty years, and perhaps
not till fifty or sixty years have
elapsed True safety and economy
require that, meanwhile, the United
States should play its part on the
seas. Failure to take our proper
place in earlier periods has subject
ed us to unmeasured expense and
loss. We should have learned our
lesson by this time. And certainly
we have given sufficiently convinc
ing proofs to the British people and
also to those of France that our
naval expansion is to be for their
welfare and in no sense to their de
triment. We are not planning any
future that repudiates the principles
of the great cause in which we
have been fighting side by side with
the peoples of Western Europe and
those of the British Dominions.
