The descendants of the compatriots
of Washington and Paul Jones arc
fighting once again side by side with
the descendants of the compatriots of
Lafayette and Rochambeau. The
time and opportunity have come for a
nation to pay a great debt of gratitude
for service renderedIn great national
need and America is paying France
the debt she long has owed.
In the Revolutionary War for the
freedom of America the French fought
on American soil under the command
of an American. Today in the war for
the freedom of France and for the
preservation of liberty to America,
and indeed to nil the world, Americans
fight on French soil under the su
preme command of a Frenchman. The
honors are oven and the honors are
No true American who knows the
history of Wst, country tand .loves,. the
honor . of alaconntry, .but; thrills at the
thought of the American army in

will turn the tide of war; they will
bring to France and b.er allies a vic
tory for liberty such -as France assist
ed us to win, and repay: with interest.

Pretldent Wilton, Augutt 27, 1917.
TRAITORS TO OUR DEMOCRACY.
The general definition of a traitor
Is one "who gives aid and comfort to
the enemy." This Is usually nppllod
to direct action, as In tho Oklahoma
movement in opposition to tho drnft,
or the encouragement of draft eva
sions, or when an American citizen re
veals our war plans to Germany.
Such acts constitute direct treason;
but there Is a kind of Indirect treason,
much harder to define and combat, yet
oftonNlar more dangerous to our coun
try and the success of the war than
direct treason. Before the war there
were In this country many social,
political, or humanitarian movements
on football of -whichwere rodjei
(that Is to say, advocates of changt)
In their programs. Such, for example,
were the Socialists, the Land Tax re-
Jortnera, the Pacifists. But all of
these asserted faith In tho democratic
Ice-ApHhclple in government and wished to
gain their enda by converting our
democracy. Most of the adherents
of these various movements have rec
ognized that this democracy of ours
having entered upon war, must be
supported that 'special programs
must, for the moment, be subordinated
'to the one great object of winntny the
tear. But there aro somo persons so
feeble-minded or so Incapable of grasp
ing the world Importance of this war,
that they talk and write things cal
culated to weaken our cfflclnnsy in
war. These people are traltuft to our
Tho whole matter Is summed up by
tho Single Tax Journal of California
liveryman. November, 1917): "WII
son's b'uslncss now Is to win tho war,
'and win It soon. . . . Tho ra Kcul
press should stop knocking him and
attend to Its own business which Is
to create the democracy that tho Alllca
are to make the world safe for. To
fight war, after It Is on, Is bootless.
To hinder it quick, effective protccu
Hon it, of coure, traitorous."
But there are other methodB than
radical speech which can "hinder the
quick, effective prosecutlop. of th
war." Labor organizations, long cr
gaged In a struggle for better I alio,
oeadit'lons'. mar aee Iff the existence !o
war' an' btoorttwiltjMo uro.thelr, dc
mands. if BS'difJttemands'are','unuBnttt
and If they would have been unjusti
fied had there been no war If labor
BeeUs to take special advantage of tbr
existence of war, then such labor If
traitorous. It hinders the successful
prcfecutton of the war. For the most
I part, labor organizations" nave noi
a' 'few have done so, and In public es
timation they stand as traitors to our
Buslneas men men with capital
are not free from the Imputation of
traitorous conduct That man who
places his own business interests
above the interests of the nation In
jthls war' Is traitorously minded. If
he deliberately -seeks profit at the ex
pense of natlonal-fflclency (as In the
sale of undergrade materials to the
government) he should be punished,
not simply as a cheat, but as a traitor.
This Is the rare exception. It is tho
almost unconscious exaltation of his
own business Interests, however, that
makes the ayorage business man dan
gerously liable to traitorous conduct
There Is no such thing as "business
as usual" during a war.
, Finally, the question of honest tax
returns and of subscribing to wnr
loans Is directly and positively a ques
tion of loyalty or treason. Thore Is
no need to argue thS point that the
man who conceals his resources, or
makes dishonest tax returns Is a
traitor In Intent and deed. What
aboilt lefaaing, tp ,tho .KOYQTjimentT.
Such lending means usually a slight
sacrifice: .Bu't the war can not bo
Y?pn without sacrifices and great tiac
rlflces. If a man has money which he
can lend, and If be does not lend, he
is. traitorous, for Ae binders, the quick
and effective prosecution of, tho war,
