It is lucky for the warring kings that God is omnipo
tent and orani-present. That enables very army to claim
Him on its side in battle.
Napoleon, the greatest cf all soldiers, said that God
was on the side of the heaviest battalions. And it does
seem to work out that way.
The latest to enlist God in his cause is the Sultan, who
gravely announces that "with the help of the Almighty,"
the Turkish army has invaded Egypt.
'At the very outset of the war, the Kaiser made it clear
to his own people that God, .was carrying the Prussian
banners. "Forward with God" was his battle-cry.
At about the same time the president of Prance was
assuring his army and his people that the Almighty was
with their colors and their cause
The British officials in their prbnunciamentoes also
commandeered tne Kuler ot the Universe into their ranks.
The Czar has no less boldly proclaimed that God is in
the saddle with the Cossacks.
Perhaps it is possible for some' people to believe that
killinry Christians in Turkey and knouting Jews in Russia
have in no way alienated the Jehovah's desire to see both
Cossack and Turk rule the world. JJjjt it & infinitely more
probable that none of these warring rulers has a monop
oly of God as an ally.
This conflict of claims strikingly emphasizes the fact
that the trinity of king, cannon and a .partisan God has
outlived its usefulness. If civilization ijs,U go forward,
if it is indeed better than savagery, the God we worship
must be other and worthier than one of Ijlood and devas
tation. '
The parts attributed to the loving Faiher of us all,
in this great war, must give fiendish, delight to the devil.
Rain, sunshine, soil and labor during the' present year
have brought forth in the United States crops worth ten
billions of dollars. Even a state of business depression
does not prevent this country from piling up wealth.
Statistics of average prices show this year's wheat and
corn crops are the most Valuable ever grown.
Sir George I'aish, the eminent British economist,
speaks correctly when he says that North America js j-ne
only continent in the world that is accumulating wealth.
Financial stress has for a long time oppressed Mexico
and all the countries of Souts America, war is devouring
all the wealth which' Europe is able to create and many
more millions each day which must be borrowed. Japan,
not yet recovered from her war with Jlussia, is again
pouring out her frugal means in another WAI'.
In sharp contrast with these, the Unjted,.$taJ;es is not
only at peace, but is going ahead converting its natural
advantages into new wealth. .
We are today the only people on ettvth who have
money to invest in securities other than thowj forced upon
the public by war. , ,..
We. are ihe only people who have new capital to pour
into the channels of trade. ,
We are the only people who nnv.udding more to thbir
bank account, instead of draining the. b.-jnk accumulations
of the past.
- Ordinarily Europe is the dominant irjvesting Section
of the world. Today North A meriea is the only important
section that is earning more money than it spends.
There is every possibility and prospect that this e$iifi
try is entering upon a period of expansion unparalleled
by any of the magnificent developments of Ll;p past, and
that the advantage gained will permanently remain,
Word conies from Portland that the council will order
the dogs freed of their muzzles. If when this is done the
authorities would also take the guns off men, there would
be fewer crimes and decidedly less murdering. The law
against procuring pistols is drastic enough, but it does not
prevent the criminal class procuring them and only dis
arms the law abiding. It looks like national proliilulion
would be the big issue soon; why not make i,t forbid tjie
manufacture of pistols and small arms as well us liquors?

barges with coal oil and set them on fire on the waste of
waters caused by the flooding of Belgium's lowlands. The
idea is that the barges burning would pour their contents
on the waters where they would spread a great sheet of
flame on top of the flood. While it might cause the death
of many it would give others a chance to get warm once
more before they die. It would be a genuine combining of
"fire and flood" mentioned so often in news stories.
The news from the seat of war has at last become very
lucid. We can readily see that the allies are steadily gain
ing ground on the western front and that the Germans
are advancing and pushing them back in the same terri
tory, In the eastern field the Russians are gaining great
victories and the Germans are also successful all along the
line. If you don't believe this, just read the cablegrams
for yourself.

Villa has evidently learned something from the Euro
pean war. He has heard the German slogan: "Onto
Paris;" the Russian war cry, "On to Berlin;" the Austrian
watchword, "On to Belgrade," and so has finally got "on
to" something himself. It is "On to Mexico City" with
him, and what is rather strange about it is that he is the
only one liable to see the job he is "on to" succeed.
Burning the dead in the presence of the troops and at
the same time permitting the knowledge to gain publicity
that all prisoners are well fed and cared for, is not calcu
lated to stir the martial spirit, but rather to increase the
desire tq surrender on the part of the poor devil who has
starved and frozen for weeks.
