We are not able to see where
in it is any worse to exempt the
poor man $1,500 than to exempt
the rich man $15,000.
A little ruction between Japan
and the ¿United States would af
ford Colifornians an excellent op
portunity of getting rid of their
“ Who will pay the taxes if the
$1500 exemption proposition be
comes a law?” shrieks the sub
The fellow who
has $1500 and six-bits, certainly.
Ask something hard.
We would say that the world
was growing better could we be
lieve that the great interest taken
by the rich in the defeat of the
$1500 exemption was, as they de
clare, for the benefit of the poor.
Now that it has been shown
that the advance in the price of
sugar was purely speculative it
will be in order for the adminis
tration to select a committee to
frame up an excuse for the poor
During the civil war of 1861-5
in the United States, there were,
aproximately 656,000 lives lost,
an average o f 450 per day. Each
life cost the government $5,500,
besides the suffering and anguish
and destruction of private prop
The German army, like the
avenging hand of fate, is moving
slowly but surely toward Paris
Obstacles that were deemed un-
surmountable have been swept
away leaving a trail of death and
desolation behind. Although war
is horrible beyond description,
one can not help admiring the
wonderful generalship displayed
in handling so great an army.
A Democratic administration is
a delicacy that comes pretty high.
Before the election we were told
that a Democratic administration
would solve the question of high
cost of living and prices on the
necessaries of life would take a
tumble. Today prices are higher
than ever before and we are con
fronted with an annual war tax
of an $1000,000,000 and we are
the most un-warlike nation on

Notice for Publication
Do those who advocate the
absolute prohibition of the
manufacture and sale of all
alcoholic liquors realize the
seriousness of the Bocial and
e c o n o m ic crisis that would
be precipitated by such legis
lation? Are they aware of the
fact that the heads of families
aggregating probably not less
than th ree m illio n people
would suddenly he deprived of
their sole means of livelihood,
and that properties valued in
the aggregate at perhaps two
billion dollars would ns sud
denly become worthless?
It is doubtful if they do fully
realize this,yet these are figures
given by no less a writer than
Dr. Henry Smith Williams in
an article in the "Ladies Home
Journal,” reviewing the pro
hibition movement. And he
adds: “ Personally I am at a
loss to understand how anyone
who has the slightest grasp of
econom ic questions can contem
plate with equanimity the anarch
istic possibilities— nay, certainties
—which reveal themselves through
the slightest ose o l the imagina
tion in connection with these fig
ures. T o m e. at least, it seems
obvious that the only thing which
has kept the prohibition m ove
ment before the people o f the
United States is the simple fart
that prohibition does not prohibit. ’ ’
Thinking men and women who
seek the truth and are unswayed
by prejudice, and who give the
foregoing facts the consideration
they deserve cannot escape a like
conclusion. — Paid Advartiaaoacat.
