How many troops America has in France is not known
unless it is to the administration at Washington and that
at Berlin. Of course the French commander also knows
the number. That there is a good sized army of them is
the general belief. At the same time the dispatches an
nounce that England and Italy as well as the United
States are rushing troops to help defeat the Hun on the
western front. What the average American cannot un
derstand is that the immense reserves, claimed by the

a. bad mistake, for the rivalry and emulation of the dif
ferent armies and nations, was, and is an important
feature. The Hun was stopped Friday, but his drive was
resumed today. As there is but little room left for retir

abandon quite a large section of territory.

peror. It is stated in this connection that Grand Duke
Michael Alexandravitch is the real leader and regent. If
this is the case the troubles Russia has had are nothing
to what is ahead of her. It is claimed the move is made
by or through German influence to get the power away
from the Bolsheviki. Just why this should be desired is
hard to understand, for the Bolsheviki government was
giving Germany about everything it asked for, and was
really managed by Germans behind the scenes who pulled
the strings and made the puppets dance as they wished.
The Russian has always been a keen revolutionist, and
was only kept down by the autocratic government of the
crars. Now that the people have nad a taste oi treedom,
and have lost their fear of the czar, they will never con
sent to be ruled by him, or any other ruler of the class.
For this reason, if it is a German movement, it is a mis
take. The Russian peasant made no kick against the
Bolsheviki, government, for the reason that he did not
, understand what it was doing for or to him and thought
it was all right because, as he imagined, it was a govern
ment of his own choosing, and that it was carrying out
his wishes. . The masses of Russia have not yet discovered
how they have been betrayed by Lenine and Trotsky and
they will only learn it when German arrogance opens

The Prussian militarists will find that what could be done
and got away with in Belgium cannot be duplicated in
Russia. There is a difference between terrorizing a
couple of million people and 150,000,000. When the latter
get aroused, especially situated as they are in Russia,
there is going to be someone get more trouble than they

The Oregonian Sunday has an editorial under the cap

as contractors for government work is concerned the

SCHWAB IS ENEMY OF WOODEN SHIPS
Schwab's selection as head of the shipbuilding of the
United States while perhaps the best possible for the
steel ship output is a hard jolt at the wooden ship indus
try of the coast. He is above everything a steel man, and
he will build no ships of anything but that material if he
can avoid doing so. At the same time if the government
will not order wooden ships, there should be a good
demand from private capital for tbe output of the coast
yards. A whole fleet of wooden chips could find quick
employment on-the Pacific and an employment that will
keep them busy for some years no matter what happens.
If the war keeps up they will be needed to bring the grain
of Australia and India to the coast, and if it ends they
will be needed still more to assist in rehabilitating a badly
wrecked world. At the same time it looks as though with
the pressing demand for ships that every available kind
would be made. It is not a question of what the ships
can he used for after the war. They can go to the scrap
heap then if in the meanwhile they do their bit toward
annihilating the Hun. We need the ships now and are
not indulging in any fits of economy as to results after
the war. We want the men and the materials for bring
ing the war to a speedy end sent to France just as fast as
It can be done. If the wooden ships are too small tor this
purpose let them do the coasting work and the traffic on
the Pacific releasing every available ship.
Holland is literally "between the devil and the deep
blue sea." At least she has the sea on one side of her and
the kaiser on the other.
Amsterdam advices are to the effect that German lead
ers realizing that Argentine and Urucuav will soon de?
clare war on her have advised the German press what
course to rake in mentioning the matter. Even a news
paper dare not have an opinion of its own in Germany.
The farmer, who has always had to get out at daylight
or before and save all of it possible, at the other end of
the day too, does not have to get up any' earlier on ac
count of setting the clocks ahead, but it must make him
smile as he thinks of town folks getting up along with
General McCain says America can put' three million
men on the firing line in France within a year if the ships
are provided for transporting them and the munitions
and supplies for them. So in the last analysis after all
things, the problem reverts to "ships and more ships."
The balance of the world would not bother about the.
"divine right of kings," or care what the kaiser and his
offspring do if they would confine their right to ruling
the one country that is willing to stand for them, and not
try to make the whole world submit to them.
Less than three weeks until the primaries are here.
There has never been an election in the state in which so
little interest seemed to be taken.
The Hohenzollerns claim the divine right to rule, but
to date none of them have taken it upon themselves to
show their people how "to die for one's king and country.

IN THE GARDEN
It jacks up all my being, to wrestle with the
soil; there is a joy in seeing the fruits of
nonest ton; there is a joy in growing string
beans, in blocks of five, a perfect joy in
knowing that I have made them thrive.
But for my stern endeavor, with spade and
rake and hoe, the weeds would grow for
ever where sweet potatoes grow; you'd see
the bur and thistle but for the work I do;
and so i sing and whistle a gladsome tra
la-loo. The wilderness I'm makiner to bios
som as the rose, as I go deftly raking, and
piying air cooled hoes. Such thoughts as
these are boiline and seethino- i
while I am daily toiling around my humble home. And
there is naught more soothing than thoughts like these,
I swear, and naught that beats them smoothing away the
lines of care. To do some chore that's useful, to kill a
noxious weed, or raise a cabbage juiceful ah, that is joy
indeed ! Oh, one may sing and twitter, and twang a harp
all day, and not help out a critter who's in the consomme;
and one might write like Bunyan, and do it all in vir.
