Many Americans are making strong efforts to bring
about peace in Europe a peace that will be lasting. So
far no headway in this laudable effort has been made, but
it may be that the Kaiser, if he has really metwith re
verses recently, will agree to some sort of mediation. But
will the allies agree to it? And will the Kaiser submit to
the terms that will be insisted upon by the allies? It is
announced semi-of ficially in London and Paris that there
will be no stopping this war until these conditions are
agreed to by Germany.
France shall receive Alsace-Lorraine, and be paid an
indemnity of a billion dollars.
Belgium shall be paid for the loss inflicted upon her.
The German navy shall be dismantled and thrown into
the scrap heap. ' .
Germany must give up all her colonial possessions,
nresumablv to Great Britain, which already has seized
most of them.
It is not reported what Russia will demand, but she
already has taken possession of an Austrian province, an
nexed it and changed its name, and now is invading a Ger
man province.
Unless Germany utterly is crushed, she never will
grant these demands it would mean that she would sink
to a third-rate ower, about in the class of Portugal, with
no navy and a small' army. ,
The intimation, too, that the allies will force the kaiser
to abdicate is likely to spur Germany on to fight till the
last ditch is reached.' Also it is reported from Petrograd
that Russia has not intention of quitting the war until
Berlin has been taken. The Czar has publicly declared
lie will use every soldier in the empire to capture the Ger
man capital, and no peace commission will be able to head
off that awful Juggernaut, the Russian army, when its
chief orders is to keep moving.
Therefore, it appears that despite the efforts making
for peace, the war will continue. Any defeats inflicted on
the Kaiser's troops will Incite them to greater effort, and
victories gained by the allies will inspire them to wish for
The war, it seems, cannot end now, despite the noble
work of the American nation. It will be fought to a finish,
and one side or the other will be crushed, its army anni
hilated. "Men may cry 'peace, peace,' but there is no
With physical culture gymnasiums and all that sort of
education, we seem to be last reaching that stage in the
way of schooling our children that the size and quality
of a child's mental development can be accurately meas
ured with a tape line. Professor Jack Johnson, it may
easily be imagined, will soon be president of Yale or Har
vard, and the school standings instead of being measured
by proficiency in rending, writing, arithmetic and the oth
er old-time studies will be graded as: Biceps, 82; neck,

when the doctors got hold of him. This is what they found

A movement has been started by local Jews for raising
funds to- aid their fellow Jews in Europe. It is indeed a
worthy object and one that in the broadest way appeals
to all humanity. The condition of the poor in the war
ring countries is now no doubt bad enough, but it is lux
urious compared to what it will be when the war is over
and the crippled nations again take up their usual pursuits
and start the struggle to rehabilitate farm and factory,
and lift the enormous burden of debt the war has fastened
upon them.
The condition of the citizen will be bad enough, but
that of the Jew will be infinitely worse. For centuries he
has been the Pariah in every country. For him there has
been no rights, no freedom, no law. He has been made to
live within certain prescribed limits in the cities, and
within those limits to maintain himself and rear his fam
ily. It is a high tribute to his manliness, indomitable will
and tireless energy that he has been able to do this and
at the same time maintain his race and his religion. He
has done this without a country and without a flag. He
has maintained his race in its purity, and sent it an unde
filed stream that, like the great gulf current, flows
resistless through the broad ocean of humanity.
Not only has he done this, but out of his oppression he
has furnished the world its greatest financiers, its most
splendid poets, its most wonderful painters, and musicians
that have searched and laid bare the soul of Harmony.
In every branch of learning the despised Jew has left his
impress indelibly. Down-trodden and oppressed, he has
furnished the world's greatest philanthropists.
It is this magnificent race that will suffer most, as it
always has suffered, and it. is its people the people of Sa
lem will be asked to aid.
There used to be an axiom of the law that laches did
not run against the government. Presumably this applies
to the state in its sovereign capacity. Judge Harris has
held that the state's neglect to bring suit within a certain
time bars it from recovery of certain school lands alleged
to have been obtained fraudulently. The dispatches Tues
day, however, stated he had overruled the demurrer to an
amended complaint, which indicates the state may still
sue, despite its negligence in beginning action. In the
amended complaint it is alleged the delay in beginning ac
tion was caused by the general government, and this indi
cates the judge holds laches does not run against the gen
eral government. However, nothing will be known as to
the law in the case until the trial is over and the supreme
court has passed on it, and not much then, if only some
technical point is passed upon.
