While victory was "inevitable,"
we nevertheless feel easier with the
Huns on the run.
The fallen "war lord" will not
be permitted to wipe bis own slate
clean by becoming plain Bill Ho-
The Huns have just about given
- up trying to chew the gluttonous
mouthful they bit off.
The wealthy man who givesuioth
injr to war work and, must even be
begged, cajoled and threatened in
to the purchase of Liberty Bonds,
says in effect that he owes nothing
to society. In his amazing ignor
ance and incredible obstinacy he
ignores the fact that all he owns he
owes to society that without the
presence and co-operation of society
nothing that he has would possess
value except to the extent that he
could use it for maintaining his
selfish existence. Since there is no
law that can reach such a man, he
should be taught a lesson through
community ostracism. If the banks
refuse to accept his money; if the
dealers refuse to buy his produce;
if the merchants refuse to sell him
goods, and if his neighbors refuse
to hold any communication or deal
ing with him and silently pass him
by when they meet him on street
or road, he will speedily be
brought to a lively sense of his ob
ligation toward country, govern
ment and flag.
The day's war news which will
not occasion the greatest rejoicing
nor relieve the gravest anxiety re
lates to that bunch of American
editors who have "arrived safely
at a British port."
It will be a glad Thanksgiving for
the Ententeallies even with the to
tal disappearance of Turkey in
The surprising thing is that a
man with a large sum of idle mon
ey could have accumulated his
wealth when so profoundly ignor
ant as to distrust government bonds
as an investment. The veriest
moron ought to know that he can
!'buy cheap land after the war"
providing land is then cheap enough
to suit him with government
bonds as well as with actual money;
that bonds of the United States
government, bearing four and one
quarter precent interest and payirg
no taxes, are as certain to go to a
premium after the war as that the
gun rises and sets. In viewing tie
slacker or the shirker, let us min
gle a ilttle pity with our contempt
pity for his amazing lack of the
knowledge that in the last analysis
is the only true and enduring
The war news is not so good that

'Pendleton sidestepped what
would have been regarded as an
amusing inconsistency by retaining
its chief of police, who has been
lately under fire. To say that this
officer is responsible for the annual
orgy which follows the "high jinks"
at Happy Canyon, is to say that
a single stone may aam a torrent.
Whatever may be viewed as to
the entertainment value of Happy
Canyon's wild west activities, it can
not be said that they are conducive
to highly moral, sober and virtuous
conduct. Al. Roberts is not the
goat; he is merely in on the play,
and wouldn't last lonz as chief Of
bleats. Rut there another nmmai

A DEATHLESS PRONOUNCEMENT
We deem it well to reprint the
five cardinal peace wints set forth
by President Wilson in his recent
New York soeeh. These t-hould
be elipi'ed and saved for reference
by every citizen who want authori
tative and concise information on
the principles involved in, the ap
proaching peace-a peace which
Germany must accept to save her
self from utter desolation. They
epitomize the thought of a world
statesman, and are destined to live
forever in history:
"First, the impartial justice met
ed out must involve no discrimina
tion between those to whom we
wish to be just and those to whom
we do not wish to he just. It must
be justice that plays no favorites
and knows no standard but the
equal rights of the several peoples
"Second, no special or separate
interest of any single nation or any
group of nations, can lie made the
basis of any part of the settlement
which is not consistent with the
common interests of all.
"Third, there can be no league
or alliances or special covenants
and undrestandings within the gen
eral and common family of the
league of nations.
"Fourth and more specifically
there can be no special, selfish,
economic combinations within the
league and no employment of any
form of economic boycott or exclu
sion except as the power of econ
omic penalty by exclusion from the
markets of the world may be vest
ed in the league of nations itself
as a means of discipline and con
trol. "Fifth All international agree
ments and treaties of every kind
must be made known in their en
tirety to the rest of the world."
Claude Still gave his life to his
country as truly as though he had
met death on the firing line in
France. A young man of great
promise, that promise was fulfilled,
even though his passing was un
timely. Although he did not live
to gain riohes, perhaps, or renown,
honor was his in fullest measure.
