It is just as well— and far better—
at this time when our Government is
having a correspondence course on
international law with Great Britain
and Germany,to be ca!m;to leave the
blustering and the shaking of the
Big Stick to a few hotheads who in
sist upon giv in g an entirely un
necessary demonstration of their
ability to make a noise.
Our note to Germany,as Dr. David
Starr Jordan says, is a clear state
ment of the American position, and,
having stated our case, “ *e can
rest it until the end of the war,
when the law of natious eutitles
our citizens to da mages.” Dr. Jor
dan points out, in calm language,
that the German notes are all com
promises between the civil authority,
which means to do what is fair, and
the military authorities who want
victory at any price to save their
own fast-wauing prestige.’’
To get into , the European war
would be a terrible blow to our
moral prestige, to our national and
individual morality, and would cre
ate most deplorable confusion at
home. Aud there is no reason why
we should get into the war.
would not help us; it would iujure
us. As Dr. Jordan says: “ There is
nothing in the world just now so
important as that we should remain
law-abiding, and war is the blind
defiance of all law.”
To get into the war would not
restore a single life that has beeu
lost, but would mean the loss of in
and sailors would be killed, and
there is no reason why we should
send them to death They have
committed no crime. Their lives
are as sacred as those of American
tourist and business men.
Chase the war bee out of your
bounet. It is un insect that causes
insanity. Already enough Amer
icans have been stung by it.— The
In connection with the move
ment now under way for the recall
of the county judge and county
commissioners, tht Marshfield R e c

paign against ‘ ‘the Watsons.”
those who are in favor o f the recall
really want to see it,amouut to a ny
thing they had better make it a
point to call off the Record. What
quarrel the Record has with "th e
Watsons” is not known to the H e r
ald. But it Is a cinch that a cam
paign s u c h a s was conducted
against them by the Record last
year will assure the retention of
James Watson in the office of county
judge, and the commissioners will
share his good fortuue

people have no personal animosity
toward James Watson or R A .

A campaign ol unbridled
abuse will bring to Judge W atson’s

That was the result last year, and

Coquille is one of the nicest little
towns in the world
It has the
best climate in the state; it is chuck
full of nice people; it will be the
residence town of the couuty, and
should be the educational center; it
has paved streets; it has an earnest
and conscientious mayor, an accom
modating and efficient city recorder,
a cracking good board of council-
men and a nice fat marshal.
town is all right— but in a tijw mi
nor matters it needs fixing. For in
stance, it a man lives here, invests
his money here, presumably pays
taxes here, coughs up regularly for
the library and commercial club

Florence Reed Appears
in “The Dancing Girl”
At the Grand Saturday there will
be shown the five-part film version
of " T h e Dancing G i r l ” by Henry
A rthur Jones, which serves to in
troduce another popular stage fav
orite to the motion picture public.
Florence Reed requires no other
Her wonderful por
trayal in the recent Broadway suc
cess " T h e Y e llo w T ic k e t ” placed
her among the greatest of the young
American actresses of the present
day. Miss Reed iu " T h e Dancing
G i r l " portrays the part of Drusilla,
the Q uak er girl who later becomes
L on don 's greatest dancer, with c o n
siderable feeling and deftness.
T h e Fam ous Players Film Co.,
who produced the subject, have
supplied a photo production difficult
to describe in cold type. T h e v a r
ied emotions of the dancing girl,
splendidly depicted by Florence
Reed, the cumulative power of the
situations, the overw helming dra
matic influence of the frequent
thrills, contribute to a production
seldom equalled iu the extent and
degree of its inteusity.
W ith commendable discretion,
the Famous Players have dressed
the production in all the lavish
fashion for which their subjects are
justly famous T h e situations in the
play permit of many impressive and
massive settings, and these oppor
tunities have beeu taken advantage
of to the fullest mechanical extent.
T h e assisting characterizations pro
vided by the supporting cast are
uniformly excellent, aud the com
pany as a whole has been discreetly
and effectively selected.
T h e great out doors, that play an
important part in the development
of the drama, contribute not only
an unique contrast to the many in
terior sets, but are beautiful in
themselves apart from the dramatic
element of their introduction.
T h e subject, w hich appears on
the Paramount Program, and which
is justly entitled to that distinction,
will be the chief attration at the
G rand Saturday night.

American manufacturers of mu
nitions of war are making immense
profits out ol the fighting European
nations. Therefore we must em
broil this country in the carnival of
murder to enforce the right of these
manufacturers to deliver their goods
to the belligérants. When we get
down to brass tacks, that is about
the size of it.
