"BUY A BALE
J. S. Bache & Co. have issued a circular headed: "Buy
a Bale of Cotton." This calls attention to the particularly
hard luck the South is playing in owing to the European
war and the consequent closing of its markets. A bale
of cotton weighs approximately 500 pounds, and as the
mills in the United States cannot handle much more than
half the crop, there is a surplus of several million bales.
The cotton dealers are unable to carry this tremendous
stock and the growers cannot hold it, as they must have
money to live on and also to plant another crop.
In view of this a movement has been started, by which
every person who can afford it is asked to buy one bale
of cotton. The cotton is to
and kept until the war is over
President Wilson has given it his endorsement and has
a bale in the warehouse. Cotton does not deteriorate with
oge and the bale will cost not
otic movement, a helping of those of our fellow citizens
vho have run up against it through no fault of their own,
and whose surplus crop, made so by the war, is estimated
to be worth in the neighborhood of $400,000,000. It is to
hear part of this burden and
grower that every citizen who. can spare the amount is
asked to invest $50, or the amount necessary to buy one
hale. Basche & Co. offer to purchase the cotton for any
one sending them the price, free of charge. The ware-1
house receipt will be forwarded by them. It is supposed
the cotton can be sold directly the war ends, and while
great profits are not looked for it is thought the prices
will give the buyers a fair return on their money, and
under any circumstances except a very long continuance
of the war the loss, if any, will be trifling, while the in
dustry will be kept from wrecking.
It is pretty hard to follow the lines of reasoning when
a strongly partisan paper criticises the administration for
making a deficit in our revenues by reducing the tariff.
As a matter of fact, if the tarff had not been reduced, the
loss of revenues would have been greater than they arc.
The democrats reduced them some, but if they had not
done so, the customs duties would have fallen off just as
much more as the difference of the two tariffs would
amount to. The American people pay all the expenses
of running the government whether the money is raised
hy tariff or otherwise. It is only a question of who pays
and what they pay on.
The most disastrous shot ever fired from a pistol was
that of June 28, fired by, Gabriel Prinzip, a school boy,
and which killed Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to
the Austrian throne. What its ultimate results will be
no man can tell; but it has already cost a hundred thou
sand or more lives, and the war has only started. How
many millions of orphans it will make and how many
homes make desolate is beyond all human guessing. It is
safe to say, however, that no shot before ever caused a
fourth part of the damage this will have accomplished be
fore the end is reached.
As a bit of advice to American girls of a certain class,
we would suggest that the war may cause a big drop in
the price of European titles. Just at present, it looks as
though some from Austria would be on the bargain counter.
Senator LaFollette is said to be arranging to make the
race for the presidency again in 1916. Nothing like tak
ing time by the forelock, but in this case it might be well
for the senator to .get a grip on the mane and tail also.
The astronomers tell us that Jupiter has another satel
lite, the ninth, although it cannot be seen with a telescope.
The news is not of an exciting character, and will hardly
take the place of the news from the seat of war.
Senator Borah says he is utterly dissatisfied with the
Wilson administration. He and Teddy, however, are far
from making a majority of the American people.

So far none of the warring nations has accused the
other of feasting on their victims. About everything else
has been charged except making each battle furnish its
own "funeral baked meats."
Germany evidently thought it had gone about the limit
in fighting for Austria, and when the latter wanted to
borrow money besides, it stretched the kaiser's friendship
almost to the breaking point.
The Oregon Journal Friday devoted considerable space

Whether or not a battle is decisive depends on which
side tells the story and also which gets licked.
