DOPES IT OUT THAT JAPAN MUST

AS WE WILL CtT IT WITH THE CANAL
He Naturally Figures It Out That
Japan Must Fight Ua to Get
Even For Hor
PARIS, March 17. "Japan must at-
ta-li ImsrlM hefnre 191.1.'' In the
opinion of Admiral Fournler of the
French navy, commenting on' an ex
pression or belief by count Ernest von
Roventlow, a loading German expert,
that war with tho mikado waa a cer
tainty for the United 8'ates.
In a statement on the altuatlon giv
en to the United Press Admiral Four-
tilnr Btinnlnmented his nredictlon thus:
"Tbut war with japan la inevuaoie.
and it la lust as certain that It win
rinu a anneral conflarration. Japan
cannot afford to wait until the Panama
canal la ooenea ana toniuea. ner
trade with China la alreadv menaced
and when tho canal la completed
America will have China for a cus
tomer of the flrat order.
Bveryone knowa the kaiser' friend
ship for America. If Germany assist
ed the United State in tne war, Eng
land could not refuse to help Japan.
And there you are. Russia. Franco
and other nations must Inevitably be
dcawn into the conflict.
"America la not a war loving nation.
Her people are commercial by nature,
having for their Ideal auch bualness
conquests aa are necessary to their
continued prosperity. But Japan can
no! tolerate tho commercial rivalry of
America in China. She will virtually
be compelled to fight. Japan more
than any other nation, realizes in
Amerlco la cutting the Panama canal
to get Chinese trade. She know that
hu waa the chief reason for the
American purchase of the canal, a pur
chase against every iraaiuou u
u nrinoinl nr American Dolltlcs." .
Admiral Fnnrnipr concurred gener
ally in the argumenta of Count Von
Reventlow, but refused to is wem
up in detail.

It was when the older citizens of this

the enterprise that la needed In these

the necessity to prepsre for what Is

OF HOI MERCHANTS
AN OLD FARMER GIVES A FEW
REASONS FOR TRADING
WITH MEN CLOSE AT
"I believe we should build up our
own communities and enable our
home merchants to give us a good
market for our producta by standing
by them. We can buy all that we
need and aa cheaply by doing buslnesi
at home, and thus make a better
market for our products.
"How can we expect the town
stores to thrive and grow If we as
farmers refuse to trade with thotrt,
but send our money to some distant
city which does not Interest us o
help us In the least?
"While there Is always a standard
price for some kinds of farmera pro
duce, how can we expect the town
merchant to buy our eggs, poultry
and other products so vital to us If
wa do not reciprocate to the town
nrercbsnt? ... A.
"Is it not an object ror us to ounu

situated worth more than If It Is
Isolated, an distant from everything

"Is It to our Interest to build up

some things on the surface may
seem cheaper than the prlcea of the

That there wlU be a IfuU house to

Tha (nil hto nf Slnela Tar la being

WATER PIPE BREAKS
AND FLOODS SIXTH
PEOPLE. DIVIDED IN OPINION AS
.TO WHOM TO BLAME FOR
There was a wordy war on the hill
Friday when it was found that the
water pipe on Sixth street was broken
and out of commission and that the
people receiving water from that main
would be required to go without for
Naturally the water commissioner
came in for his share of the blame,
and If the contractors on the street
have the right of the story he was at
error. On the other hand the contrac
tor received a sever scoring at the
hands of the friends of the water com
missioner. A pipe was broken In rolling the
street on Sixth street; near the park
anttlhe water gushed out with a rush.
The pipe was close to the top of the
ground and the contractors say that
they had asked that the pipes at this
point be put down to a safe depth
something like two weeks before the
accident happened. No steps were
ken tn lnr the nines so they might
continue their work, the conractors
say, and so they returned to worn in
the hope that the work might be fin
ished without accident.
The water commissioner says that
he should have been notified and then
th. m-nrb stnnned until auch time as
he was able to lower the offending
It Is a case where there seems to
have been a lack of effort to put
matters Into shape to save the public
