Enters U. S. Army
It la well known that, during the
recent days of draft registration,
there were many aliens who refused
Jto claim exemption on the ground of
their nationality. One of the most
' Interesting cases is that of a Japanese
I resident of California, who is now a
private In a machine gun company at
Camp Lewis, Washington. Al
though not a citizen, he was satisfied
to enter .the National Army with the
double aim of fighting German au
I tocracy and winning American citi
zenship. , In a style somewhat reminiscent of
(Wallace Irwin's famous' Japanese
'schoolboy correspondent, he writes:
, "I became American soldier since
iAug. SO. This is rather astonishing
I nsws to you. As you know, this gov
ernment required registration of al

natives and aliens. Any Japanese

The writer also expresses high
,' praise of the way in which the United
States government takes care of the
families of its soldiers. Stating that he
hopes to be in France by December,
he concludes: "There may be dan

STREET AND ORPHANAGE
NAMED FOR PRESIDENT
Lucca, Italy, Nov. 8 An ancient
thoroughfare which for four hundred
years has encircled this city on top
of the Lucca wall has been officially
renamed as Boulevard Presidente
Wilson," in recognition of American
aid extended to Italy in the war. The
boulevard is so wide that twelve
horses can be driven abreast in it.
' The fortification beneath it was built
when Lucca was the capital of a
feudal duchy and has been a famous
relic for centuries.
On the same day an American Red
Cross orphanage, also built on top of
the great Lucca wall, was dedicated.
This curious site was selected for lack
of an available location in the town.
The building is a cunning adaptation
!of the Luccan style, painted to con
form with the wall and set with an
cient panels and Latin mottoes. The
orphanage was erected by the Ameri
can Red Cross in fifty days to house
a group of soldiers' children orphan
ed during the war.

If Claims Made Are True It
Is One of Greatest Revo
lutions in History.
Germany claims to have democra
tized its government. If so, one of
the greatest revolutions of history has
taken place over night. The mighti
est despotism the world ever saw,
suddenly disappears. In its place we
have a democratic monarohy, con
forming to President ; Wilson' de
mands. It takes a shell game artist
at a "county fair to do anything so
Great revolutions like these, if au
thentic, are attested by indisputable
evidence. Any constitutional change
in the United States Is the subject of
long debate in public assembly, and
is finally agreed to by vote attested
and put on record by the lawful au
thorities. English liberties date back
to Magna Charta. You can find an
original copy of it in Lincoln cathe
When has any proclamation of ab
dication of his imperial power been
made by Emperor William II of Ger
many? Under the German consti
tution, he has the power of making
'defensive war." As he can set up
the claim that any war is "dtefensive,"
tnis practically gives mm tne ngnt
to make war anytime he wants to.
Where and when has he abdicated
this power? Let him come forward
and present a signed proclamation
giving up the right.
Under the German constitution, the
Federil Council can authorize the
Kaiser to make an "offensive war.
As this body does not represent the
people, the Council must formally by
attested vote renounce this right, be
fore tbe first step toward democrati
zation has been made.
The claim set forth by the Ger
man government that it has placed
sovereign power in the hands of the
people is too transparent to deceive
a class of school children.
GREAT A I K EXTINCT.
Egp,s of any kind are expensive

a millionaire could afford to buy a
dozen. Indeed, it is doubtful if
there are more than that many in
The great auk was a sea-fowl that
in .former days had its most impor
tant breeding place on a rock called
Funk Island, thirty-two miles off the
Newfoundland coast. Whalers pro
visioned their ships with the birds
which were so fat that they are said
'to have been utilized as fuel), and
) fishermen stole their eggs by whole
sale. In consequence of such depreda
tions the species became extinct
about seventy years ago, and today
to represent it there are only a few
stuffed specimens and skeletons in
museums. Also a few eggs, one o'
vhlch in 1859, fetched $90 at auction
Since then, however, they have gone
up. In 1882 one was sold for $550:
ar other egg, in 1895, was knocked
cVwn at $825. Four years later one
brought $1,500, and in 1900 the
price quoted for a specimen was $1,
678. ; .
The Smithsonian Institution pos
sesses an egg an 1 a harrelful of mis

cennected with the Smithsonian hap
vened to be in London and, passing a
toxidermist's shop, he saw a stuffed
great auk in the window. He nearly
dropped with astonishment.
But just as arrangements for its
purchase at a great price were or

covery was made that the bird was a

jn America the necessity of becoming
good American citizens with a trade
or occupation that will help them and
their country, and above all loyalty

adopted. The Polish Falcons of this
city are doing all this.
Organized In 1904
s f.or back as 1904 an organization
was perfected in Bridgeport which
.iiuentlv known as the Pol'sh
Falcons' Association. At that time
the association was established as -an
athletic club and meeting place for
the young Folanders who had come to
America. That was the outside ap
pearance of the organization. But
down in the bottom of every mem
ber's heart was the realization that
the organization was established
primarily to aid in gaining political
and religious freedom for Poland. It
was hard work to establish an organ
ization of this kind in America. The
Polish Falcons were originally, organ
ized in Europe and developed more
freely in Galicia than in either Ger
many or Russia. 'Because of perse
cution in all of these countries the
society took on the form of a secret
organization. The natinal emblem
of the country they were in was an
eagle different from the American
eagle. Therefore, in order to keep
their standing in their respectivt
countries, they took for their emblem
i the falcon, a bird resembling the
eagle in many ways. As a result wlin
their emblem was first noticed in Aus
tria it was not suspected that this
organization was one opposed to the
government and working for the free
dom of Poland. On seeing the em
blem the government took it for
granted that it was a patriotic or
ganization and it was many years be
fore they were suppressed.
The history of the Falcons In Eu
rope became known in America and
this was the cause of the many set
backs that confronted the leaders who
wanted to establish a strong organ
ization here. They were looked on

asked that they be grateful, loyal and

them freedom, and had even given'
them the means of helping their op
