Following his address, the nations voted unan imously for a League of Nations, the purpose of which is to prevent recurrence of wars and their horrors. Before President Wilson left for Europe he had allowed partisan polities to impair his vision. Undeniably he had lost, or was losing, the confidence of a large percentage of the American people. But the speech at Paris will do much to re-establish him in the high regard entertained for him during the war period by nearly all of the people of the nation, regardless of political affiliations. Throughout the address the president was cautious not to con vey the thought that what may be done at Paris will be faultless. He recognized that many blunders are likely to occur, which will have to be corrected in the practical application of the league’s work. He said with great solemnity: “We are assembled under very peculiar conditions of world opinion. I may say. without straining the point, that we are not the representatives of governments, but represenattives of the people.’’ In this same connection: “The burdens of this war have fallen in an unusual degree upon the whole population of the countries involved. I do not need to draw for you the picture of how the burden has been thrown back from the front upon the older men, upon the women, upon the chil dren, upon the homes of the civilized world, and how the real strain of the war has come where the eye of the government could not reach but where the heart of humanity beats. “We are bidden by these people to make a peace which will make them secured. We are bidden by these people to see to it that this strain does not come upon them again. And I venture to say that it has been possible for them to bear this strain because they hoped that those who represented them could get together after this war and make such another sacrifice unnecessary.

THE PHOENIX TRIBUNE—ALWAYS IMPROVING “It is a solemn obligation upon our part, therefore, to make! permanent arrangements that justice shall be rendered and peace maintained. “This is the central object of our meeting. Settlements may be temporary, but the action of the nations in the interest of peace and justice must be permanent. We can set up permanent processes. We may not be able to set up a permanent decision.” In conclusion, the president pointed out that the United States is peculiarly free from the danger of invasion, that our soldiers largely entered the war in the spirit of crusaders, and that his visit to Europe is largely in the spirit of a crusader, whose object is rescue of mankind from the horrors of war. Here is another thought which should be -burnt into every mind at home and abroad: “Gentlemen, the seleet classes of mankind are no longer the! governors of mankind. The fortunes of mankind now are in the hands of the plain people of the whole world. Satisfy them, and you have justified their confidence not only but have established peace. Fail to satisfy them, and no arrangements that you can make will either set up or steady the peace of the world.” That all efforts to establish a League of. Nations for preservation of peace have failed in the past, we may readily admit. But that is no reason that such league may not succeed now. That it will be an imperfect and unsatisfactory league at the beginning, we may well assume. But, as President Wilson says, it can correct its defects as experience may dictate.—Ex. FATAL CUTTING AFFRAY 1 OVER GAME OF CARDS KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 3.—The result of a dispute over the small sum of 20 cents, the sequel of a card 1 game at the home of Bettie Pickle, , • corner University avenue and Boyd t street, on last Saturday night at 1 [ 10:30 o’clock, Will Edmondson was , stabbed to the heart with a knife in the hands of Thomas King. . When seen in his cell at the county ' jail shortly after the tragedy, King t . talked freely of the killing and told ; I the following story. “Me and Will Edmondson and some more boys were playing ‘skin’ at the home, of Bettie Picgle when I won ' and then Will jumped up and started ! off with the money. I begged him to give me my money and he could have his dime and he ran out in the street, me following him, and he l w picked up a brick, broke it in half, * } and threw a piece at me. When he 1 started to Wow the other half, I - j rushed into hinj and stabbed him. I i stabbed him ’cause I thought he was ( | g6ing to kill me.” Other witnesses to the killing state |' that Edmondson was making an es-, : ! fort to escape when he was killed by : t King. r Gambling, which is carried on regu- j, . larly in the section where the killing | occurred, has been a nuisance for a 1 long time to the citizens living there and such tragedies as was enacted ' Saturday night has been expected. King gave his home as Tampa, , Fla., and stated that he had been in . ! the city for three months, during , which time he has worked at the gas j plant and the telephone company’s | office. Parolman Wolfenbarger and W T . B. , Adcock were the officers making the ‘ ! arrest. ! 0 b PLUCKY COLONEL STANDS UP FOR COLORED BOYS NEW YORK, Feb. 3.—Soldiers re-' turning from the war zone in France tell of an effort made to transfer col ored volunteers from fighting units j ito stevedores. It said that Colonel | Dennison, of the old Eighth Illinois, i was requested in May to sign his reg iment for stevedore work, but re j fused, saying, “I will wade through ; blood to my neck before I will sign my regiment as stevedores.” The colonel was later relieved of his com. I mand and sent back to the states on It was necessary to get the consent of Colonel Dennison because the j Eighth left the United States as a first class fighting unit. In the case of the Fifteenth New York it was different, and the regi ment was signed to serve as steve dores, which they did from the mid dle of February until the last of April. o Silk is so cheap in Madagascar that the poorest ■ people can afford to wear it o MONEY TO LOAN Loans easy to get up to $l5O on your furniture, piano, automobile, etc. Don’t be without money.

Feb. 1. —Issu- ing from the press of the National Baptist Publishing Board this week is a Sunday School Lesson Commentary for 1919. The book is comprehensive in every detail. It deals with the uni form, improved Sunday Seliool Les sons and is a series of publications begun in 1903 for the purpose of giv ing to the Sunday School pupil, teach er, superintendent, pastor and Bible student a simplilied view of the Inter national Sunday School Lessons. The improvements made on the publica tion from year to year have placed it in the first rank as a Sunday School help.

Then there comes the authorized as well as the revised version. The improved uniform series as pre pared by the Lesson Committee, car rying with it from now on lesson ma terial as well as teaching material, gives the scholar the same opportunity as the teacher has had heretofore in making a research through the Bible for their information.

Then there are sim j pie outlines and many blackboard out , lines in the book, together with sev eral colored plates of biblical paintings and colored maps, with a Bible dic [ tionary at the close of the volume.
