North Dakota ha3 uttered the first official expression upon the choice of President in 1920. Party conventions under the state law) were held on Tuesday of last week and indorsements for President were made. The repub licans gave a majority for Gen, Leonard Wood over Gov. Frank O. Lowden, of Illinois, though the highest expres sions of. approval of each were made in the convention by men voting for the other. Gov. Coolidge of Massa- husetts was nominated for Vice President. The demo crats indorsed Wilson and Marshall for a third term, an other proof that the democratic party is holding desperate ly upon the personality of President Wilson as its only recommendation to the American people for continuing in power. Assuming that President Wilson will not challenge the third-term unwritten law, the acutla outcome of the con- ventions for practical purposes was the bringing to the front of two men who will be prominent in the race for the republican nomination. Gen. Leonard Wood, who was officially named, has been conspicuously before the people for twenty years, ever since he did the first con structive work of the United States in Cuba as Military Governor. Whenever he has been given a large task to perform calling for, executive ability and sound judg ment he has performed it with great ability. This was shown most recently in his service in training troops for the war and in his handling of the military situation in various places where troops have been required tn pre serve peace and protect persons, property and industries. He has made himself known chiefly to the American peo ple by his early and persistent advocacy of adequate mili tary preparation and especially the training of citizens to become soldiers when needed. Jointly with the late Theodore Roosevelt he stopd at the front of the campaign for Americanism and preparedness at a time when those things were not as popular as they later became, and for that he is dear to the hearts of the American people. Gov. Lowden has had a long and distinguished career in the service of his state and nation. He was for a long time one of the leaders of the republican wing of tho House of Representatives, serving in three Congresses. He was elected Governor of Illinois in 1916, and as War Governor has served his state and country with excep tional ability and distinction. He has stood for the great things of our American institutions and has had much to do with their preservation and development in national legislation end public regard. Irrsspective of pr.rty, he ia recognized as one of the great men of the nation, one Iwving the qualities needed in this difficult period. St. Louia Globe-Democrat. Await Reaction of Nation Endorsement Wilson for 3rd Term Wife Threatened His Life, War Hero Says If the street car deprivation in Toledo lasts long enough, skyscraper apartments will be built and everybody will live downtown." The way out is upward. lwo Inches of snaw fell in Los Angeles the day before Thanksgiving and dampened the enthusiasm of those who had been lamenting the "old-fashioned kind." Many things are blamed on the Senate, but it isn't the Senate's fault that "drastic" measures to force down the cost of living haven't "drasted" very noticeably. " A "wife in company lirtens with a laugh ready for the climax of her husband's funny story; and a husband lis tens to his wLVs funny story with the point ready in case 'she forgets St ' ; ? EVERYBODY SHOULD CONSERVE COAL. There is no indication of a speedy termination of the coal strike or relief from the shortage of fuel. The indi cations point in the opposite direction. Every day the strike continues and production is below normal adds to the length of time fuel will be scare after normal pro duction shall have been reached. Fuel Administrator Gr.rfield, representing the government, and thus the whole people, has asked the whole people to be econom ical in the use of fuel, to conserve their supplies, regard less of whether or not they feel they have sufficient to last all winter or have some means of getting more. Every ton burned needlessly makes the total supply from which .oil must draw one ton less. We are all drawing energy from a common source. No matter how reck lessly we have been accustomed to expend that energy when the source seemed inexhaustible, we have no right in morals or in the light of our public duty to expend more than we absolutely need to expend when the source ia not sufficient to supply the energy to all. There are doubtless, individuals and institutions possessing enough fuel to let all winter and therefore not feeling the need of conservation. Thece should conserve as an example and encouragement to others, even though they do not expect to call upon the short general stocK for more coal during the season of deficiency. Especially those who are in the preferred class and arc entitled to get more coal whenever needed, should show the proper public spirit by being economical with fuel to their full limit. Every ton they burn is a ton taken from tho public supply. Their fuel in that sense is a public trust and should be handled accordingly. The rrilroads are being administered in thct spirit and a great cutting down of consumption is being made. Like re- . l . 1.1 1 . irviitiiinmi. miouiu d- exercsca n every preferred class clonr down to the domestic consumer, each realizing that he is burning coal from the scant public supply whose shortage has already closed down industries employing thousands ef men and brought distress to their families by reason of loss of wages. The highest quality of citi icnship will be displayed by the use of every possible economy. WASHINGTON, Dec. 8. (United Press.) Politicians in Washington are awaiting the reaction of the na tion's endorsement of President Wil son for a third term, by the demo-' cratic state, convention in South Da kota. That the president himself will be a candidate is deemed extremely un likely. The state of his health would not permit him to withstand the rig on of another campaign, it is under stood. His friends believe that endorse ment of Wilson really is endorsement of his administration, and if it is re ceived favorably by members of his party throughout the country, it is, likely the president would be en couraged to give his backing to a dem ocratic candidate, probably William G. McAdoo, who would run on a plat form containing planks promising a "business administration" and ratifi cation of the peace treaty, if it is still hanging fire at that time. The ree ommendations contained in Wilson's message to congress which have been acted on, probably will be indicated in this platform. , Pending a thorough survey of the sentiment of the nation following the South Dakota nomination, other dem ocratic presidential possibilities are holding back. Not one has come into the onen as yet. If the next few weeks show that the Wilson adminis tration has lost confidence and that a "Wilson man" candidate would not be popular, the Democratic party, it is presumed, will look for a candidate who has had nothing to do with the present regime in Washington a man like Herbert Hoover or Governor Cox, of Ohio. The South Dakota Republican en dorsement of Leonard Weed apparent ly was expected. Wood Beema to be the foremost candidate in the G. O P. rank just now, Hiram Johnson's stock at least as far as can be ob served at Washington having de clined somewhat since the peace treaty ceased to be a permanent is sue. , UPHOLDING AMERICAN IDEALS. Former President Taft has given some excellent ad vice to the new American Legion. The tendency some members of that organization and some of the local chap ters have shown to resort to violence in defense of Amer ican principdles and especially in opposition to radicals seeking to overthrow the government, he deplores and warns the organization against it. These manifestations of the mob spirit are prompted by an excess of patriotic zeal, and therefore, have not at their core anything harm ful to the country. But in their desire to safeguard American principles they should not overlook tho fact that fudamental among those principles is respect for law and order and the determination of all disputed matters by regular judicial process. In dealing with advocates of illegal use of force there should not be an exemplification of that' very un-American principle. Most of the legion ers are young and impulsive, yet they have all received education and training ni the American spirit. No de mocracy can stand which does not have supreme regard for the sanctity of the law and the authority of the of ficers regularly chosen to enforce it. The best contri bution the legion can make to the supportof true Amer icanism is to uphold the law and its officers in every time of stress and excitement. If more, force is needed than the officers of the law possess at any time of trouble, it is the duty of every citizen to lend the officers aid in enforcing the law and preserving the peace. There is no finer example of the true American spirit of democ racy than that of a man helping the officers of the law to preserve the peace at a time when his sympathies and natural impulses are with those vho are breaking the law or disturbing the peace. That is a triumph of principle over impulse and sentiment It is the acid test of democracy. Every member of an order which makes patriotism its chief reason for existence should be able to stand thia acid test. There is much to be hoped for in the preservation of our democratic institutions from the splendid American young men who fought to preserve democracy for the whole world. The American Legion has before it a full half century of powerful influence upon tlie conduct of public affairs iii this country and the education of the youth of the land and the immigrants w?o come to us from abroad in true Americanism. This influence will be the stronger and the more beneficent as the members of that order themselves exemplify the ideals of Ameri canism in all the emergencies that arise, high among which ideals is preservation of tie peace and support of the law, as interpreted and applied by the courts and executed by officials charged with that duty. BALTIMORE, Dec. 8. Peter Jak- obaski, decorated vn an American and an Italian medal for distinguish ed service In the war, appeared in the ci-cuit court yesterday to prose cute his suit for absolute divorce from Antonena Jabobaski, a little woman who he charged with threatening to kill him and with forcing him to leave their home. Jakobaskl was a sergeant in the American army for sixteen months. "You don't mean to tell me," said Judge Gortcr to Jakobaski, "that wearing those medals you are afraid of this little woman?" "Yes, I am," Jakobaski replied. "Then you are braver in war than in love," the judge said. As Jakobaski failed to establish his charge that he was justified in leav ing his wife his suit was dismissed. CHICHESTER S PILLS ,W THE IMA MONO BRAND. A :'6 'iht tfcer.
