TELLING THE TRCTH
"Tell the Truth" seems to be the
slogan of most Western districts this
year, having reference, of course, to
Eastern buyers coming west to make
fortunes out of the soil. Have West
erners been telling lies all these
years T The slogan would imply that
they have. Some people would call
It merely exaggeration. Neverthe
less, there is a reason for the new
Walter V. Woehlke, editor of the
Sunset Magazine published at San
Francisco, Is one of the "best posted"
.men west of the Rocky mountains
In regard to conditions in the West.
He has visited most every district of
Importance in the West and gets his
information first-hand. He con
ducts a "service bureau" in the Sun
set. We have watched very closely
his answers to inquiries in regard to
business chances In the West and
believe he has gotten down to 'brass
tacks and is telling the truth and
nothing but the truth, although by
doing so he tramples the toes of
many promoters of laud schemes,
The West still offers as many, if
not more, golden opportunities in
land investment than airy other sec
tion in America, but here Is the way'
Mr. Woehlke answers an inquiry in
regard to public land still remain
ing open for settlement:
"There are millions of acres ot
government land in Arizona and Ne
vada, and practically all of them are
open to entry and have been open to
entry for fifty years. The very fact
that they are still open, that no one
has considered it worth while to
take them up, shows that they are
scarcely worth having. In most In
stances, these millions of acres are
arid Jand barely able to support one
steer per ten or fifteen acres. In
our judgment, you would be wasting
your time and the best years of your
life if you endeavored single-handed
and without capital to homestead on
arid land. It would be far better
to wait until Secretary Lane has
succeeded In starting work on recla
mation projects for ex-soldiers, in
,' which case you would tecelve the
preference in the selection of land
that has foeen reclaimed."
What Mr. Woehlke says of Arizona
and Nevada is true, to a great ex
tent, of every other section in the
'West. There may be some good
public land still subject to home-
steading, but such tracts are few
and remote from shipping points,

KICKED INTO DUTY
Here is a line from an Eastern
"It is cause for general satisfac
tion that Secretary Baker before go
ing abroad directed Col. Ansell to
prepare, a bill embodying the re
forms advocated ty him In the. ad
ministration of military Justice."
That is one way to state the mat
ter, but as matter ot fact Baker
was fairly kicked Into doing his duty.
He may not be a bad sort of indi
vidual at heart, but owing to Incom
petency had to be shown the way by
Col. , Ansell and Senator Chamber
lain. In fact this kicking process
has had to be applied to him ever
since he stepped into office. The in
humanity ot many courts martial
decisions has thoroughly aroused the
public, but our present secretary
did nothing in the way of reforms
until compelled to do so.
Military Justice must of necessity
be rigid, but no one can fail to be
lieve that even military ' justice
should be tempered with mercy and
appreciation of individual rights.
Some of our soldiers, among them
a few of our best fighters, commit
ted misdemeanors or slight offenses
not crimes yet Secretary Baker
reserved his mercy for slackers and
We don't know Just "what arrange
ments have or have not been made
by the 'American delegates at the
Paris peace conference in regard to
free trade with other countries, but
we do know that free trade wjth
Europe and other cheap labor coun
tries will not build up American in
dustries and give American labor the
highest wages in the world.
Soma people telieve that the kais
er should live live on in some dark
place, marked with the brand of the
outcast and the vile. But we don't
believe in taking any chances with
Bill. There was Napoleon and
The democ-ate or Massachusetts

The leaden ot that party are finally

retary Baker's scalp to the same pole
Free trade and foreign immigra
tion are what the United States must
guard against In the near future.
They strike at American industries

Last evening at the Church of

message by Mr. Roberts on "A Liv

that the scriptures teach faith as an

that the Christian faith is one ot ex

'The llitrder Wlrvlemi"
Wlllinm S. Hart's new Artcraft
picture, "The Border Wlroless,"
which ' will be shown at the Joy
theater next Sunday and 'Monday
has boen dmilgnated by those who
have had previews ot the production
as a picture "with a real thrill." Of
course, every itlurt picture has a
thrill, consistent story with action
in every toot, but the fact that this
one is concerned largely with the
machinations of a band of Hun'plot
tors In America, on the borders ot
Mexico, gives added interest and en
ables the star to depict certain
phases ot the war at home which are
not only timely, hut decidedly fasci
nating. It gives Hart a chance to wear
khaki; presents htm first as a ban
dit, depicts his reform when patriotic
Inspiration Arouses him to the tact
that he Is at heart a man of honor;
shows his effort to enter the army,
temporarily frustrated hy his record
which la exposed by a German, and
his final pardon and acceptance
when he uncovers a dastardly plot
and exposes the wireless operations
of the spies, whose Instruments are
hidden In an old mine.
Howard E. Morton wrote the story
and C. Oardner Sullivan the scen
ario. Mr. Hart directed the picture
and Joe August did the photographic
work. Many of the scene were
actually taken on the borders of the
Mexican republic. Wanda Hawle is
Mr. Hart's leading woman.
