Well, 1 don't care a d about the job, any way."
Thus a Statesman reporter quotes 8. II. Van Trump, at a
meeting of the fruit men at the Marion county court house last
Saturday. ' , , ,
Mr. Van Trump had beeen appointed fruit inspector for the
county, and a number of the fruit growers were protesting against
liig retention. !
Up to a few days ago, the management of The Statesman did
not know there was such a man in the world as 8. II. Van Trump.
They can surely, have no prejudice against him. IIow could there
be prejudice without knowledge? I
- If he is the right man for fruit inspector, the management of
this paper can have no sort of objection to bis employment, or con
tinued employment. !
Nor could this newspaper, or any newspaper, consistently re
frain from publishing the news concerning the controversy over the
appointment or proposed appointment of, Mr. Van Trump.
This is merely a sample case. I
I Every day every newspaper makes enemies without intention,
and against its fondest wishes, by merely publishing the news. It
is unavoidable. i - i
' , There; are many reasons why the flunking of Russia from the
war will not greatly assist Germany. There are possibilities of some
elements of injury to the Central Powers to result from the con
ditions of Russia now existing or likely to be developed. The
Associated Press carries a very well written dispatch 'covering in
general the situation, printed in The Statesman of this morning,
under a Washington date line, and illuminating lights are thrown
on the world news screen by the Bolsheviki proclamation itself. The
latter is something new under the sun in peace proclamations, and
it may lead to many complications. It may vex the Central Powers
more-than could the most powerful army Russia, even under able
and well followed leadership, could now muster for the rest of the
war. . , !
"Give me a free sea," cries Dr. von Seyler, the Austrian Pre
mier, "and I will show you that I can negotiate." But he is talking
of the diplomatic sea, which is not likely to be free of quicksands
and floating mines so long as the diplomats of the central powers
say one thing and do another. j

the results of the air raids are small,
but the proportion of women and
children is eren greater. The Berlin
correspondent of a Rotterdam paper
has sought for a frank statement of
the purpose of these murderous
raids,' and reports that while the re
cent attack on Paris was In reprisal
for attacks on German towns, the
bombing of London is a systematic
policy, and its military Justification
is found in the fact, that the mainte
nance by the British of a defensive
barred zone on the east coast enables
the Germans to hold their own In the
air on the west front. It Is an excuse
which does not excu.te, and itshol
lowness Is shown by the Zeppelin
raids planed for before the war and
carried out on a false plea of repri
sal. No one explanation will corer
all the raids except a furious hatred
on the part of the Germans which
sought at any weapon to strike Eng
land, regardless of censequences.
GERMAN PLANS OR CAMOC
Never was an offensive advertised
like the one which the Germans
either are or are not going to make
on the western front.
Passinc br aa of dubious authen
ticity lilndenburg's statement that it
would not matter If all the food in
Germany was gone by May because
by April the Germans would be in
Paris, we may note the unqualified
assertion of the Frankfurter Zeitung
that "French soil will be the scene
cf the final struggle," and the dec
laration of the Deutsche Tages Zei
tung that "All eyes are now fixed
on the west." 1
A, suspicious reader might fancy
that the well-drilled German pres
was doing Its best to keep all eyes
fixed in that direction while Hinden
burg and Ludendorff were planning
something quite different But the
experience of the war shows ttat the
carefully planned publicity of, the
German general staff cannot always

For, the present it is impossible to
say whether the Germans mean to
make a big -offensive In the west
this spring or not, and It Is almost
a matter of routine In German strat-
tgy to shape plans In such a way a

CHILI'S CENTURY OF INDE
The Republic of Chill, one of the
most important and most progres

tries, yesterday ; rounded out the
first century of her Independence
Chill was among the first of th j
Spanish colonies to rebel against a
foreign yoke. It declared Its inde
pendence of Spain on Sept. 18, 1810,
but it was not until February 12,
1818, that it made good its claims
to freedom. In the intervening eight
years of warfare it had repeatedly
scored victories in battles with the
Spaniards. In the great conflict the
Chilian patriots were led by San
Martin,; O'HIggins, Cochrane, Buan-
co and other military leaders of re

represented a galngof about 100 per
