Any er.oneous reflection upon the character, standing or repualiori of amy person, firm r corporation which may appear in the columns of this paper will be glady cor- rccted if brought to the attention cf the editor. OUR POSITION PLAINLY STATED. As stated in my paper a few days ago, I have no apol ogies to make for its course in the present congressional contest between Congressman Sells and Judge Dana Har mon. I am for Mr. Sells because of choice, and I am sure under our form of government I have a right to be for whomsoever I choose. I have not done nor said anything in the contest un manly or unfair. I have not said anything in the columns of this paper for which I am sorry, or feel that I owe an apology. If I have not said in plain words that I am for Mr. Sells, I can now announce it, and in so doing I believe I voice the feeling of the majority of the republicans in this congressional 'strict I am for Mr. Sells because he has made a representative we can well acord to be proud of. I know something of what he has done during his time of service, and from my knowledge of it I do not see how or where he could have done more, being a minority member. I have published some of the most important things he has accomplished, but by no means all he has done, as I have not had space in my columns. I am forced, nowj more in this contest than ever be fore, to give my views and to announce myself, as I have just received through the mails an anonymous letter mailed here in this postoffice, as follows: "And you needn't expect any local support after your despicable stand'in the congressional ' race. A man who would sell out against a home life-long friend, meed make no appeal for 'home support.' Lookout" I want to announce to the people of Greene county that I have been trying to run a republican newspaper, and to make a clean, respectable one, and 1 am sure no one except an enemy will deny this. I have tried to aid In every way I could the progress of Greeneville and Greene county. "As to how Well I have succeeded I will leave that for the good people to say. Because I have not thought it well to aid in the defeat of Mr. Sells and support Judge Harmon for a place I do not think he is entitled to, at least at the present time, I am assailed you might say assaulted with the lowest type of weapon used by any man, an anonymous letter. Of course, I have an idea where the letter came from, but will not say, but I want to announce to this anony mous gentleman that I fear no man, in business or other wise, who will resort to such kaiserism to scare, intimi date or turn me from the course I am now pursuing. We are now into a worjd-wide war to blot out autocracy, kaiserism and everything that resembles same. I have said nothing personal against Judge Harmon, and do not intend to do so. All I have to say in concluding the above explanation is that Judge Harmon nor any friends of his have ever said anything to me about the support of my paper, nor has he given me anything in the way of work to do in his campaign. I am reliably informed that Mr. Harmon has had fully $2,000 or more work done here in Greeneville in democratic printing offices. I did not solicit any of this work, nor was I in any way consulted in reference to doing any part of it by Judge Harmon or anyone acting for him. I am informed that the other republican newspaper, The Searchlight, has been treated in the same manner. , Very respectfully, ? W. R. LYON, Editor and Proprietor; Hindenburg is not dead. He only wishes he were. - The real peace note from Germany will be a howl for mercy. " A nation-wide campaign will be launched on July 29th to explain the functions of the Federal employment ser vice and its program of exclusive war labor. This an nouncement was made from Washington Thursdays The drive will be extended to every state and to Alaska, Porto Rico, Hawaii and Panama. The British and American warships inspected Monday by King George constituted the biggest and most pow erful naval force ever assembled. If placed end to end, the vessels would stretch on a continuous line more than 21 miles in length. They were chiefly vessels of the most modern design, construction and armament, and on some of them their crews had proved themselves unmistakably. Mrs. Andrew J. Patterson delivered an address before the teachers of the county institute on Thursday after noon, in the interest of the United States Student Nurse Reserve. Mrs. Patterson has been made chairman of a committee having this work in. hand in Greene county and her talk to the teachers was greatly enjoyed. The war is creating unprecedented demands for trained nurses. The call has been issued for women between the ages of 19 and 85. Intelljgsnt. responsible women of good eJa cation and sound health are wanted. THE WORLD'S COMMERCIAL LEAGUE. .. The war is compelling the great maritime and com mercial nations to harmonize their shipping end com mercial operations as a measure of defense and offense against tfta enemy, but it is aireaoy apparent mat tne process is so far-reaching and so beneficial that it will remain and become still more effective after peace comes. Whether Germany and nations allied with her shall be come a part of the great co-operating system depends upon the vicissitudes of the war. Nothing within human power, however, can stop the integrating process so far as the allied nations are concerned. In his address to the members of the interallied par liamentary commercial conference, on July 5, King George V said:' , , , . The unity of action which has been estab lished among the allies in commerce, as well as in naval and military matters, is proving one : of the main features of cur strength. The experience we have gained of its benefits in matters of commerce will result, I hope, after this war has been brought to "a successful con " elusion, in bringing home to us all the value of coordinating mutual interests. There will be keen rivalry among the allies after the war, as there should be; but it will be a rivalry far more intelligent, and vastly more beneficial to all concerned, than the half-ignorant and half-prejudiced rivalry that prevailed before the war. ' The war, ending as it must in the liberation of nations long under oppression, will lift the spirits of men and expand their brains. The penetration and upbuilding of the West consumed at least 50 years of incessant activity. The development of Russia, China, Africa and South America offers abundant opportunity for all the energy and genius, of all the commercial and maritime nations. Russia alone, if given a free and stable government, would draw upon America to such an extent as to keep every wheel in this country whirling at top speed for years to come. The natural wealth of Russia will more than pay for every article sent to that country, and the exchange will benefit both parties. ' ' There is, now a genuine working arrangement between the United States and each of the three western allies; covering the questions of transportation,' food, steel, coal and other necessities. The nations which only a few years ago were cautious in exchanging confidences regarding their shipping resources are now "laying the cards on the table." The frankness of intercourse and the pooling of resources have advanced the world's com mercial interests by at least 50 years; that is, enter prises which would have lagged. or failed will now be taken up, financed and developed ' on an international bisis, without any difficulty whatever. All this mutuality Of commercial and maritime opera tions is based upon confidence " and ' the alliance. Ger many has forfeited the world's confidence, commercially is well as in everything else. Therefore' neither nations r.or men will deal with German concerns until the con dence is restored. That will be a long process, far longer than the wa1 No doubt the making of peace after the peace conference begins, will consume many months and perhaps years, with great danger of wars springing from the conference table. But after peace shall : have been Inally signed and ratified, mankind will still look askance t German "horror," and it will be a long time before men will risk large sums of money to the honor of Ger mans." ',."' ':' , : In the meantime the world outside of the Teuton alli irjce is fairly well fed, even in war time, fairly well clothed, and fairly prosperous. The wona does not need Germany in commerce or navigation. That fact will be borne in with killing effect upon individual and corporate Germans after the war. The simple truth is that there is a friendly and peaceful league of nations now in opera tion, in which Germany has no share and into which it is iiffkuit, if not impossible, to admit her. -Washington Post.' Greene county should not be allowed to lag behind in the War Savings Stamp' drive Chairman Lovette, in planning his campaign for Sunday afternoon,' has called together a band of workers that have' never been known to fail in anything they have undertaken in the past, and with the earnest co-operation of the good people of the various sections of the county in this work, they will be enabled to put Greene county over the top.

N DON'T LEAVE SCHOOL OR COLLEGE, SAYS CLAXTON Tusculum College wishes to call the attention of its students and all stu dents of Greene county to the follow ing notice from the Committee on Public Information at Washington: Don't Leave School or College Next Year, For the Nation Need Educated Men and Womci, "Boys and girls, young men and women should make their plans now to go on with their education next year they should not consider re maining out of school to enter into other definite war service," declared Dr. P. P. Claxton, commissioner of education. ; "The experience of European coun tries since the beginning of the world war has led not only their educators, but their statesmen as well, to em phasize the great importance of main taining their schools as nearly as pos sible at the full measure of efficiency and of keeping the children in school. "When the war began four years ago, some or all of these countries permitted children to leave school to enter the industries connected direct ly or indirectly with the war service. But they soon discovered their mis take and have since done all that they can to correct ii Through personal representatives, from these countries and through correspondence the bu reau of education and other educa tional offices in the United States have been urged to do all they can to prevent the people of this coun try from making the same mistake made by European countries. "This has been the policy of our office and of the whole administra tion in Washington from the day war was declared. The President has urged that no child should have fewer or poorer opportunities for education because of the war. The secretaries f war, navy, interior, agriculture, labor and commerce have urged that children should remain in school and have approved the constant appeals of the commissioner of education for full attendance in schools of all the grades, including high schools, nor mal schools. Colleges and universi ties. It is generally admitted that this will make for strength in war and for the preparation needed by our people for the great tasks of peace when the war is over. "The war task is great and will require for its completion the united efforts of all our people, but we need not and must not grind our seed corn. Patriotism demands a full acceptance of this policy and close and constant adherence to it." A GENTLE REMINDER. The price of The Daily Sun. will be $3-a year after August 1st.
