THE "BACK TO THE FARM" MOVEMENT It took an English jury only fifty minues to find Sir Roger Casement guilty of high treason, and about one minute longer for" the judge to sentence him to death. In this country it woud have been five or six months before the case would have been called, and it would have taken from a week to six of them to have secured a jury. Then instead of trying the case in one day it would have taken at the least a month. In this case considering the great work Sir Roger has done for the world and especially England, it would be a nice thing for the government to temper justice with mercy, and commute the sentence. Sir Roger is intensely patriotic, but his love for Ireland is greater than his love for the English nation as a whole. In his address before his sentence he said that loyalty was a crime only in England. He might have added that just now disloyalty is one of the gravest of fenses, and yet England has nothing to gain by executing the death sentence on him. o t : :i.:4.j t- l tLi iu .. i .mji' y v I , v I r H v v J 1-1 i :j iiimi H There is just one thing that keeps the "back to the TT .YX ,31 Tr r'' farm" movement from becoming the rage ant that is that Argentine, but that before any- the most ardent advocates of it want otheis to do the done c t mak -t Jn "backing," instead of going back tnis. , h h m t once tak f d obvioug t b k There are numberless reasons why the i novc men is, w President Wilson replying to a dele- not hilariously popular, enough of them tha it vvou d take .

The rising with the sun does not appeal to one who is in the habit of going to bed at that hour. Follow ing a plow all day on foot somehow does not seem near so delightful as putting a foot on a pedal and turning on the gasoline while sitting on the cushioned seat of a joy wagon. Picking the incarnadine berries from the dew-laden vines before breakfast listens nice but in practive does not appeal to the man who can, lying in bed, press a but ton and have the same berries nicely washed and culled brought to him in bed along with plenty of rich cream that he did not have to get from a cow himself. The little country gathering, where everybody knows everybody else, and which is indeed one of the most en joyable occasions to him who has not been spoiled and mentally diseased by being innoculated with the city bug, is to him an unmitigated bore. The having to go to the pump for water instead of turning a faucet in any room in his house and getting it fresh and colder than from the moss-covered bucket, does not appeal to his esthetic tastes. The little amateur exercises at the school house so dear to us older folks, so filled with the most delightful memories, are to the city dweller insipid, dreary, unbearable. Maud Muller with her graceful ankles bare and brown is a 'scrap of paper.' We have come to a crisis where acts must follow words. While we have the greatest sympathy with the problem of the Mexican people and their desire for self government, we have come to the point where we must insist that the lives and liberty of our people shall be safe from the depredation of Mexican bandits."

(Continued from Page Une.) Before proceeding to skin the Mexicans might it not be a good plan to give Carranza a shave? He seems to imagine ne is someining 01 a moaern samson, ana 11 may be he suspects his strength lies in his whiskers. If he was shaved he might discover that instead of being a Samson he was only the weapon Samson used against the Phillistines. Someone expressed it epigrammatically this way: "Jack eating too ripe cheese did say Like Samson I my thousands slay. Yes, said a wag, indeed you do And with the selfsame weapon too." ; THE MARKETS Washington. June 30. The biggeat military appropriations in the history of the nation have already been aside, or are about to be set aside, by this session of congress. Congressmen, pointed out today that instead of tho quarter of a billion dollars customar ily appropriated at each session for military purposes the present session will chalk up a record of from thro fifths to three-fourths of a billion.

The Oregonian in discussing the Mexican situation and what it calls the refusal of the present administra tion to take steps to settle the matter, is not entirely frank.

It is all wrong, but it is tho existing fact just tho same. If the city man could bo forced to live in tho country and to earn his living on a farm he might bo weaned from his city idols. He might learn the many compensations, the cleaner living, the more healthful atmosphere, the real joys of life instead of its false ones and in time learn to love and appreciate them. As this cannot bo done it is safe to say the back to tho farm movement will not ma terialize so long as tho necessity for food does not compel it. Its strongest advocates are like the sign posts on the highway which point out the roads but never travel them.
