KEEP ADDING TO HIS TROUBLES.
Now is the time to add to the kaiser's burden of woes,
and nothing will hurt him worse than to know that Ameri
cans have way over-subscribed the money asked to keep
the war going. There is liable to be some hard fighting
yet because the kaiser, the Prussians and the militarists
generally realize that wnen trie war enas tney win .e dis
credited before the whole world and out of a job forever.
Thev will continue the war as long as the German people
will keep on sacrificing themselves, just to furnish can
non f odder. The only peace that can be made by Germany
must be made by a new government representing the Ger
man, people and so long as the kaiser and his gang can
keep the German people from organizing a govrenment
that ca nbe treated with, they will do so. The situation is
hopeless so far as Germany is concerned, and the leaders
know it. The longer they fight the harder the terms they
will have to accept will be. It is quite within the range of
possibilities that Austria will before long make overtures
for a separate peace, and she would no doubt do so now jf
she were not dominated utterly by the kaiser, and afraid
to move. The defection of Bulgaria is also liable to have
a far reaching effect on some of the weak-kneed neutrals
such as Spam and Sweden, and even little Holland may
buck up and send her ships across the ocean to get the food
supplies tne united Oiaies is noiuing ivi net, aim wiik.1i
the Germans will sink if they get the chance. Holland
has suffered much at Germany's hands even while stretch
ing her neutrality to help her. And while these troubles
are coming to Wilhelm do not overlook the tremendous
punch you can help give him by adding your mite to the
liberty loan. Get behind your Uncle Samuel right now
with every dollar you can spare and hit a lick that will
make the defection of Bulgaria seem a trifle to the
"uber alles" boss.
The tender hearted kaiser is shocked because the
Americans are-using shotguns as a weapon. He has
threatened to execute any American captured who has a
this threat Secretary Lansing has answered that America
has many more German prisoners than Germany has Am
ericans, and that if an American is executed on this ac
count there will be reprisals. This is good as far as it
goes, but it is no way to even things up by killing one of
the kaiser's soldiers, for each American killed. To execute
a dozen would not make the score even. What the kaiser
should be given to understand is that when the war ends!
he personally, and his leading military men, will be held
responsible for every American maltreated. The kaiser,
who sends thousands of his subjects to their deaths daily,
would not care a farthing how many Germans the Ameri
cans killed by way of retaliation,- so long as none of them
belonged to the Hohenzollern family. If he deliberately
murders an American, no cellar in Germany will be deep
nough or big enough to save him from punishment. That
is what he wants to be made understand. The threat
shows the trend of the Prussian mind. It is all right for
the German soldier to use poisoned gas, liquid flame, or
any other device prohibited by the rules of war, to poison
wells and torpedo hospitals and hospital ships, to drop
bombs on Red Cross hospitals and do any and every devil
ish thing the beastly mind of a more beastly Hun can
conjure up, but the kaiser's delicate organism is shocked
at the thought of the Americans using shotguns. The only
regrettable thing about the using of these guns is that
their range is not great enough to permit their contents
reaching his royal iiendishness about amidships of his

The sultan has seen a great light and would like to
see more of it. He has demanded of Germany that a l
debts owed by Turkey to Germany be declared cancelled
by the latter, with a threat to abandon his former ally to
her fate if his demands are not complied with. He has also
instructed his representative to "get satisfaction out of
Germany "at once or leave Berlin." This was one of the
tender messages received by Wilhelm yesterday, whi h
taken all around was an exceedingly worrying day for the
head of the Hohenzollern tribe.
Apparently Russia is recovering from her madness
and is again to have a substantial government, in place of
the farcical thing managed by the bolsheviki and bossed
hy Germany. The recent move for a conference at the
beginning o ftthe year a which to formulate plans under
which Russia can again be re-united is the first sign of a
regaining of her senses by the big country, and it bids
fair to bear good fruit.
Austria wlil have to be rushing her armies out of
Italy if she wants to save them. Besides they are badly
needed at her. former bac kdoor which has suddenly be
come available as the front entrance to her territory. If
the Serbians get a whack at her it will be all over as far as
fche is concerned except the shouting.
A Berlin paper suggests that Germany send an army
against Bulgaria to compel her to keep on fighting for
Germany. That is the German idea of making her friends
r tand by her. Fighting Bulgaria to make her love Ger
many is a nidea that only a German mind could educe.
' It is a safe bet that the kaiser did not smile while
reading the dispatches about the war yesterday. His
dream of world domination has vanished as utterly as a
lost umbrella, never to return.
Bulgaria is ready to. take a crack at her old friend,
the Turk, at any time the allies think they would like to
have her do so. "Tis sweet for brethren to dwell togeth'-'

The selection of Attorney Olson of Portland for the
supreme bench to fill the vacancy caused bv the death of
Jutsice Moore was not unexpected, since the governor
came near making him the successor of Justice McCamant
who resigned a month ago. The fact that Mr. Johns had
secured the nomination for the place was the factor that
caused the governor to give him the appointment. It was
this alone that prevented the governor giving the place to
Olson, whose claim to the office, so far as known, is per
sonal service for the governor, who uses the public office
thus to reward such service. There are many fair minded
republicans who think this appointment should have gone
either to Judge Coke of Marshfield or Judge Kelly, of
this district, as they were candidates for the .nomination
at the last primaries, and the big vote secured by each
showed the desire of the people to have them on the
bench. Each of these are rated high as lawyers and jur
ists, and either' would have filled the place with distinc
tion, and credit to the state. Justice Olson is untried.
He has had several years practice at the bar but no exper
ience on the bench, and his appointment is made from per
sonal motives rather than as a recognition of ability. It
remains to be seen if the appointment is to be used during
the campaign now on, by Justice Olson to make the race
for the position, by having his name written in on the bal
lot. His occupying: the position ewes him the lead in the
race, and is just that much of a handicap to any opposing
him. Either Judge Kelly or Judge Coke are the logical
republican candidates for the place, and if a republican
is to be elected it should be one of these. .
The governor let his personal feelings outweigh the
expressed wishes of the voters in the appointment of his
campaign manager to tne supreme Dencn.

The leaves will soon be falling down, regardless of the
cost; the grass will soon be turning brbwn, nipped by the
eager frost. The lovely flowers will hear their knell when
frost gleams on the lawn, and soon the flies we love so
well will all be dead and gone. All wilting xre the gor
geous plants that lately graced the soil, and soon the chig
gers and the ants will cease their useful toil. The sum
mer's gone, the autumn's here, and soon, gee whiz, how
soon, we'll see the passing of the year, with church bells
all in tune. Some day from arctic wastes there'll roll a
blizzard wearing bells, and scores of folks will rush for
coal, to where the dealer dwells. "Send us nine pounds of
coal", they'll cry, "regardless of the price ! Our aunts and
children freeze and die, our shacks are cold as ice !" And
then the dealer, honest soul, will cry, "Gadzooks, odsblood!
I am entirely out of coal, and so your name is Mud. For
months, it's grievous to relate, the dealers begged in vain,
that you would buy your winter slate while slate you could
obtain. .The government backed up our spiel and begged
you, 'Buy your coal!' And now the dealer does not deal
--he has no goods to dole." The winter time will soon be
sent, its storms will soon begin, and sad will be the freez
ing gent who has an empty bin.

"Who wants you to get a taxf? You foolish sometimes, I guess. Bus ridca

Taxi's fairly cat up money. We ate up
enough without giving them any. Com-a
on let's wulk over to the Avenuo and
ride on the bus," then as Brian hesi
tated, "There are other evonings com
ing, Brian Haekett. Didn't vou ask
iuj to eat with you again tomorrow
nifcht? Or did I dioani it?"
"It was no dream. Perhaps we bet
ter tako the bus," and with rather a
shamefaced laugh, Brian put his hand
under Mollie 's elbow and walked to
ward the Avenue.
On top of the bus riding up town, Ire
soon forgot his embarrassment. In fact
no ono could long retan such a feeling
when with jUollio King. It was after
10 o'clock when they finally climbed
ilown at the end of the route in Wash
ington Square, having ridden as far as
tl.u bus went up town, then down.
"Come in and smoko, if you like,"
Mollie said as they rcachod the red
brick building that housed her.
'May If That will be fincl It's aw

really too early to turn in."
They smoked and "reminisce" nn.

it to mean when hc was with Huth; and
so, her warm heart filling with pity, Bh0
"Come as often as you like, Brian."
As before, Brian would haw been
shocked could he have known what
was in Mollie 's mind, and to do him
justice ho would have quickly disabused
her of the notion that hc wasn't hap
py with Huth. It was only that he was
aggrieved at hvr absence. But Mollie
had no idea but that "poor Brian" was
unhappily married to a "high brow
"Gee! but Mollie' a peach!" Brian
said as, once again, he took the bus to
ride home. It happened to be the same
expression h had used the last time he
had taken her to a dinner and then had
eonp home the same way.
He counted his money' before he went
to bed. A smile twisted his fae when
he saw what a hole the dinner had made
in his little roll.

the eats," he said as he put his do
pleted roll back in his pocket.
Then idly he wondered who that
"bloke" was, who had stared at Mollie
'Can't blame him much! she looked
sweet vuough to kiss, tonight." Then
as Euth's picture caught his eye: "But
Ruth has'it all over them all, for style.
She ought to, too, two hundred dollars
for a dress! I don't believe- Molliu
spends that much in a year on her
back," in which surmise he was right.
Moll-o. didn't! alio didn't have it to
The next morning he received a night
telegraph letter from Ruth. She had
arrived safely and found everything
alright, and would hurry back as soon
as possible. She gave gave him her ad
dress and asked him to write hor.
Brian fully intended to write that
morning. But when he reached the .of
fice he found some extra work whieh
mvaut extra money so he sent her
wire instead. He needed the money.
That Ruth might need the letter, had
never occurred to him.
That night, too,. h0 dined with Mol
Uo, and thoy wvnt to the Movies.. She
had insisted that they eat at a littlo
table de bote place wheij the dinner

'Quite a comedown," Brian had said
laughingly, yet glaj in his heart that
slip, had proposed it.
"We musn't spend money every
uight like wo did last night," sh0 had
said in a way that made Brian feel that
she wasdooking out for his interests
which she really was.
"You're a good little scout, Molliel
