NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS. The U. S. War Industrie! Board hat Uiued an order forbidding publishers continuing, subscriptions after date of aspiration, unless subscriptions are renewed and paid for. - While it has been the general rule of this newspaper o stop all papers promptly, there are some few who have asked for time on their subscriptions both to the Daily and Weekly Sun. These subscriptions will now hare to be discontinued under the new law. If you want the paper continued to you, send in youi renewal subscription before your time expires. " Read our notice to city subscribers today There is a time to squabble and a time to hit the Hun. The school for scandal never closes oh account of the a ut Germany will now proceed to make her war bonds scraps of paper. "Quit shooting and talk more!" is the agonizing cry from Hunland. ' , v There is always a ray of light to pierce our gloom, if we will not close our eyes and refuse to see it. if Germany becomes a republic, look out for another two-column cablegram of congratulations from IBr'er Carranza. If you pay for The Daily Sun one year in advance, we guarantee that you will either get the paper one full year, or its equivalent. Take a good look at your front gate that you may be able to recognize it wherever you may be lucky enough to find it in the morning. ,. Take aim before you shoot; otherwise your shot may go crashing in among heartstrings and still their quiver ing forever. Women are the majority in the church on earth, and it H reasonable to suppose they will be three-fourths of the population in heaven. ' ' There are a great many things in this world , that we are not sure of, but there is one thing we may be sure of "Be sure your sins will find you out" ' j It's all right for the youngsters to indulge in innocent amusement Hallowe'en, but care should be taken to sec that property is not damaged or traps set that will be calculated to maim or cripple someone. The war vill benefit the newspapers of -the country in one respect it will result in paid-in-advance subscrip tion lists, a thing that newspaper organizations have beer trying to foster for a century or more. Uncle Sam sayt "no pay, no paper," and it will have to go at that. Railroad employes were instructed yesterday by Direc tor General McAdoo to observe Saturday, which has been proclaimed national fire prevention day by most gov ernors, "by the removal of all rubbish heaps, the inspec t''on of all fire apparatus and a resolution to make and keep tidy hereafter all the property of the railroads wherever situated." The correspondent to the Knoxville Journal ajid Tribune fro mthis city went off half-cocked in his lettei to that paper, published last Friday. This correspondent would have the outside world believe that the epidemic of influenza in Greeneville could' be attributed to the un healthy or unsanitary condition of the town 'and com munity. We daresay there is no town in the south with mire ideal sanitary conditions than is enjoyed at this time by our little city. This fact has been brought out only recently. in statements from health officials of the state. Greeneville has a perfect sewerage system. She has more paved streets than any town her size in the entire soutw. The streets and alleys are kep clean, all refuse matter is removed daily. Statements of this char acter, sent out 'by correspondents who either do not know anything about conditions generally or have no interest in the town, are calculated to do our city great harm. Let them get the facts next time before they make state ments that are without foundation, CRITICAL TIMES AT HAND. "I am uneasy and apprehensive, more than during the war." These words, written by Jay to Washington in 1786, after the United States had won it3 independence and before it had formed a "more perfect union," ought to serve as a reminder to the allied governments of the dangers that beset them while they are casting about for means to make the world's liberty secure in peace. The critical period in American history was when the people had liberty and did not know what to do with it. The critical period of the world's history may be when it has beaten Germany and does not know what to do with the liberty that has been won. , There is no need of beating about the bush concerning President Wilson's famous Fourteen Points. They con- I stituted a f a'rly comprehensive peace program at the time they were uttered, but their author never contended that they were all-embracing, and in the last few days he has notified Austria-Hungary that they are radically changed. The recent political upheaval in the United States has shown that a large proportion of tjhe American people will insist upon .peace ternis that are not included in the Fourteen Points, and, of course, this public insistence will be felt in the senate when the historic hour arrives for the ratification of the peace treaty or treaties. The ratification must be given by two-thirds of the senators present, and therefore the two great parties must j substantially united in approval of peace. Moreover, there will be little or no "executive session" secrecy sur rounding the peace treaty, for every one in the country, including President Wilson, agrees that the time foi secret diplomacy is past. The people of the United tates will not permit the jfovernment to commit them to any arrangement with Germany, even a beaten and prostrate Germany, unless the terms are all published in full for all men to read. . But the attitude of the United States is only one factor ) a problem that affects all humanity. Each of the allied nations has its own- peace terms in reserve, to be broughl out in conference. Some of these terms may be impos sible of realization, either because of the objections of the other allies or because they infringe upon the rights of neutrals or of pedples liberated from the enemy yoke. The great objective of the allied governments will be justice for all, but there is good reason for uneasiness and apprehension in considering the difficulty of dealing ut xact justice to the whole world in settling questions offhand that have provoked wars for centuries. Justice is not quite fluid enough to be poured into a great pot from which the nations may take as many ladlesful a? they are entitled to, no more and no less. The unity of the allied nations in the war has been admirable. May it be as firm in devising peace ! Bui the unity during the war has been promoted by the pres sure of deadly peril threatening all alike. The allies havt been like the staves of a barrel, upon which there was a common pressure that held them together. They obeyed one-instinct, and that the strongest of "all -the instinct of self-preservation. But when the war is won, uid the pressure ceases, and the enemy lies open and exposed to punishment and exploitation, the unity of tht -dlies will be subjected to a terrjble test Self-interest will replace self-preservation as a controlling motive, and the tendency will be exac'tly, opposite that which drew the allies together. They will fly apart unless they now, be forehand, agree upon the principles and most of the de. tails of the peace which they. are to - impose upon the enemy. The time is short. The enemy is disintegrating. He if straining every nerve to throw the allies into a prema ture peace conference, before they have agreedlmong themselves upon what they want and what they can have If Germany can' lure the allies into a peace conference before the peace, program is agreed upon, the probability is very strong that she will wriggle out unscathed, if not actually victorious, through the . disagreements of the allies and the, possible rupture of the entente. The allies owe it to the world to organize instantly e supreme political council, with full powers, to meet be hind closed doors. They should place before this council without reserve, all their individual peace demands. The council should do its utmost to adapt and reconcile these demands. Having assembled and agreed upon all these peace terms, the supreme council should ' immediately publish them broadcast ty the world, word for word, a? ;hey are to be imposed upon the enemy. y Unless some procedure like this is followed the mili tary victories will catch the political departments of the lilies napping, and the governments will be compelled frame a makeshift peace which, like all makeshifts, .vill fall to pieces in a time of storm. The experience of the United States after the Revo "ution is a solemn warning to the allied governments to i hape their peace solidly while they have time.-AVashing- :on Post. ' CITY SUBSCRIBERS. The Daily Sun was stated eight months ago. We have been running all this time at an actual loss, in an effort to give Greenevileyl a , daily newspaper. We have appropriated the proceeds from the publication of The Weekly Sun to the expense of The Daily Sun, in order that we might be able to give the afternoon paper a thorough try-out. We have re ceived the earnest support of a num ber of our citizens in our undertak ing. We are sorry to say, however, that there are many of our very best people who Jiave never taken the paper, but who still take both of , the Knoxville newspapers. We should have fully five hundred regular sub scribers to The Daily Sun in the city alone. This would cover only about one-half the homes within the city limits proper. From a business standpoint, if no other, every busi ness firm in Greeneville should re ceive a copy of The Daily Sun every afternoon as it is we daresay less than one-fourth of them are sub scribers to it. We have made ar rangements during the past two weeks to increase the size of The Daily Sun and otherwise improve its appearance. In order that this might be done we have installed an addi tional typesetting machine and other equipment at a cost of several thou sand dollars. This machine and equipment, however, can he used on other "Work should our efforts to con tinue The Daily Sun prove fruitless. The subscription price of The Daily Sun, delivered anywhere in the city, was placed at 15c a week. This is a little more than the larger city papers rfre 'getting, but then we are under taking to get out a daily newspaper in a small town with about the same expense upon us as the larger city papers have, and we cannot make the same rate they do until we get estab lished. This rate amounts to $7.80 a year. In order that we may find out just how many of our citizens want to see The Daily Sun continue just how many have sufficient faith in it to pay for the paper yearly in advance, we are going to accept yearly subscriptions delivered any where in the city by carrier, at $5 for a few days., This is a saving of $2.80 to all who, pay for the full vear in advance. At the same time a few hundred of these subscriptions paid in advance just now would as sist us in meeting the heavy expense we have been put to in getting in hape to publish The Daily Sun. We fon't believe there is a man in Greeneville but who wants to see this daily newspaper continue, and the failure of many to support it has been thoughtlessness on their part they have never stopped to consider ?ust"what it means to the town and community. We hope this class will now get behind us in our efforts, and with the earnest co-operation of our people we promise to give Greeneville nd Greene county a daily newspaper they will not be ashamed of before very long. Mail us a check for $5 today for a full year's subscription to The Daily Sun delivered by carrier in the city. ; Don't all come at once ! THE END OF MAN. f6ut town. ; 18 Of all evils prevailing among young men we know of none more blighting in its moral effects than the "ten aency to speak slightingly of the virtue of .women. Nor is there anything in which young men are so thoroughly mistaken as the low estimate they form of the integrity of womennot of their own mothers and sisters, thank God, but of others, who, they forget, aresomebody else's mothers and sisters. Farm loan bonds in the future will bear only 4 per cent interest instead of 5 per cent, carried by the last block of more than $50,000,000 offered last May, it was stated recently. - Man that is "born of -parents is of a few days and full of microbes.
