SHIP PURCHASE B I L L
There is a great Gf Opposi
tion to the bill in congress providing
for the purchase by the U. S. govern
ment of merchant ships to carry Am
erican commerce during the war.
The New York Evening Post in ;
recent discussion of the measure said
"The whole thing is in urgent need
of sifting and more sharp defining,
Talk about leaps in the dark! This
bill is a leap into the abyss of Ocean
and Old Night. If ever there was
reason for scrutinizing debate, it has
been furnished to the Senate by this
The Indianapolis News comments edi-
torrially as follows
"We trust that the bill will be not
only debated but defeated. The gov
. ernment ought to have no ships on
the ocean in theso trying times ex
cept warships. The surest way to
discourage individual initiative is
to subject pivate ship owners to com
petition at the hands of' the goveriv
ment prepared to do business at a
The Orcgonian thus denounces the
"If this bill is passed, private ship
owners will surely fly from the field
before government competition which
is started in the expectation of losing
money. International complications
will arise when government ships, en
gaged in trade claim privileges in
foreign ports which are designed only
for naval vessels and when belliger
ent cruisers search and seize any of
' theso American government ship3 for
contraband of war. Other nations
havo operated railroads, telegraphs
and telephones, but never before has
a nation operated ships on the high
seas and flying to foreign ports
Never before was so radical a
new deprture proposed with so little
such blind obstinacy."
Ex-president Taft gave the follow
"American private capital certain
ly will not be interested in business
nor invest in that which comes into
competition with the government. I
am vigorously opposed to govern
ment ownership in any form."
When the war broke out private
capital and initiative failed utterly
and miserably to serve the country's
One of the chief reasons why the
war caused industrial depression in
the Union was that there were
no ships in private, ownership lliat
would carry our goods to their for
foreign market. And those now en
gaged charge a confiscatory freight
rate. For instance the ocean freight
tin wheat from Philadelphia to Malta
has advanced from 7 eta. to 111 cts
and rates promise to go still higher.
Is the whole country to contintie to
wallow in an industrial slough of de
spair until such time as the ships pri
vately owned may serve our needs?
No, indeed! It Is the function of
government to stop into such a
bri'i'ch to restore tolerable conditions
In the country by the most direct mid
'llldont manner possible.

NEED OF A FIRE ALARM
At the city election In Juno the
proposition to purchase a fire engine
and another to extend the water sys
tem, so as to increase the firo light
ing capacity of the municipality, aie
to come before the voters for their
consideration. In the mean time it
would be wise to attend- to sonic of
the details which would make these
improvements successful when they
Of what use would the best fire
fighting apparatus manufactured be
with the fire alarm system 'which we
arc now using? The one way in
which to defeat the ravages of flames
is to get your fire fighting mnchinos
on the ground before the fire is be
yond control. That only two of the
eleven fires in Bandon since the big
blaze of last June have escaped be-
.ng total losses for the building and
practically toUil losses of the contents
demonstrates that our fire alarm sys
tern (if it could be called such) is de
In the fire which destroyed the
home of Neil Williams last Saturday
night, the blaze was first seen by par-
tics in West Bandon at one o'clock
and the telephone central was immed
iately notified. At twenty five mm
utes nfter one the alarm was sounded
by one of the night police who saw
the reflection of the blaze in the sky.
This is but one of several, instances
What we need is a central point
where all alarms can be turned in
From this point the alarm should be
ung or blown on a signal that could
be heard in all parts of the city, us
ing a signal code that would tell the
'ocation of the blaze.
Until this is done we might as well
have a squirt gun and a tub of water
.is a $9,000 engine and the best water
ystcm on the Pacific coast. ,
ONE M A N W I T H GOD
Emperor Wiliam, speaking to the
.var correspondents at the general
headquarters in the field yesterday,
'Gentlemen, my principle, and it
ipplies to this war also, is the word
of old John Knox, reformer in Scot
land: 'One man with God is always in
Every time a nation gets into a war
t is always able to believe that God
is on its side. Even defeat can not
lispossess them of this belief
Probably nations would not make
war if they were not able to believe
their cause to bo God's cause.
A tribe of negroes in Africa who
prefer to live by stealing cattle, jus
tify it by a belief that God original
ly gave all the cattle to them and cat
tle possessed by others were obtained
through original theft.
The white nations have not improv
ed much on this, neither in Germa
ny's natural right to extend its kul-
ture or in England's divine mission to
civilize the world.
R E V I V A L S
The revival services being conduct-
in Philadelphia by Billy Sunday prove
that evangelical religion has as firm
n hold on mankind as ever.
People still yield in a spirit of con
fidence and trust to the guidance of
the divine hand that never fails.
However much we admire strength,
whether in the forces of nature, the
sinewy limbs of the body, the master
ly intellect, or moral character, there
comes at times a realization that we
are weak, but that Thou art omnipo
tent and infinite.
That religion will continue to he a
vital need of the nice despite any
knowledge that may be acquired Is
