Anyway, Admiral Wilson, of the U. S. N., is a good
sport He takes whatever blame may be attached to the
sending out of the United Press report that an armistice
had been signed between the allies and Germany which
ended the war.
THE UNITED PRESS EXPLAINS.
The Capital Journal is inclined to think that it was
mistreated by the United Press, which furnishes it a leas
ed wire telegraph service. .' ....
We do not mean to say that this was intentionally
done but was no doubt the result of too great a desire to
beat rival press associations to the news.
The United Press has an explanation today blaming
the whole affair 6n the cable service and the censor. They
claim to have filed a; cablegram to the effect that the
armistice had been signed, on the authority of Admiral
Wilson at Brest, France. -" ' ,
Later, the explanation says, the admiral announced
that the news was unconfirmed, and that their cablegram
stating this fact was .held-up, and never got through to
the United States.
We know nothing about this ourselves. We pay the
United Press for its full leased wire service. The associa
tion has, heretofore, been reliable and enterprising. Their
' . . ' ja .1 111. J
explanation of the occurance ot yesterday win nave to
stand for itself.
That the war is practically over is almost.a certainty,
and, since all information is to the effect that the envoys
are in session, an official announcement of the signing of
an armistice may be expected at any time.
The Canital Journal regrets the. occurance of yes
terday exceedingly because it' prefers being reliable to
If the United Press management cannot prove con
clusively that they were honest in this instance and the
victims of a serious mistake on the part of cable officials,
they will not continue very much longer to serve the
Capital Journal with news.
THE GERMANS MUST PAY.
In all our discussions of peace terms, Americans
should never lose sight of the fact that Germany must
pay for the damage she has donoe in invaded countries,
and that nothing must be allowed to interfere with such
There is a popular impression now that if the German
people promptly 'overthrow their government and estab
lish a responsible democratic government, they will be
allowed to evade the natural penalties incurred by Ger
many in the war she has waged against innocent nations.
Some penalties, no doubt, the German people may es
cape or sfoten, if they act with sufficient celerity and
honesty. But surely the allied governments do not intend,
and the allied peoples should not permit it if they did in
tend, that b yso doing the German nation may avoid its
just war bills.
There must be reparation to France and Belgium, and
to other nations whose cities Germany has destroyed and
whose lands she has ravaged withouot provocation. If the
property of the Hohenzollerns and their fellow-freebooters
is taken by an awakened people and applied to that
purpose, well and good But it will noftgo far. ; There are
inany billions to pay.
Any popular government that is the successor of the
present autocratic government will inherit its pecuniary
obligations to creditor nations. A German republic may
disclaim some of the heritage of distrust and hate be
queathed by the German Empire, but it cannot disclaim
the heritage of retribution for property destroyed.
The German property must make good the property
wiped out by Germans. Not only as the heir of the pres
entent German government, but as an accessory to the
government created by the German nation should pledge

THE UNHAPPY BARD.
Most workers pull down princely wages, reward of
honest sweat: but still the bards and kindred sages must
take what they can get. -The man who comes to do my
choring draws many bones a day, and at odd moments he
is roaring, because of meager pay. At times I hire a
learned mechanic to tinker round my car; his charges
put me m a panic, and gives my soul a jar. The butcher,
grocer, and the baker have hiked their prices high; and
I'm afraid the undertaker will skin me when I die. On
everything the price is higher, except on deathless pomes,
and bards can hardly find a buyer for products of their
domes. My wife declares she needs a bonnet, she's worn
her lid three years, and I remark, "I'll write a sonnet, a
thing of smiles and tears; and if it fetches in some plund
er, a roll of good long green, you'll have a helmet that's a
wonder; the smoothest ever seen." Then in the market
place I flaunt it, among the shopping gents, but not a
buyer seems to want it for more than forty cents. They
've raised the price on hens and hearses, on all. the things
that grow, but soaring and immortal verses won't bring
ten cents a throw.

Walking and it had been a relief to know
it was not required of her. And some
way she knew that Arthur Mandol
knew sho did not want to talk; and so
had saved her tho necessity.
Ruth was just the typo of a woman
who appreciated such delicacy of atten

a consoquoncc. Sho regarded- him as
tho kindest, most thoughtful man she
ever had known. Occasionally she won

and was rather pleased, that he had not,

Sho went directly to bed when sho ar

she meant to wait for Brian and tell
him of hor .nice dinner, and hear how
he had got along with his typewriter.
But she really had been very fatigued,
and so had slumbered, rcgardlessol her
intent to remain awako.
She woke with a start! she must have
fallen asleep. But Brian was not yet
in, so sho could not havo been sleeping
long. Ho had said he would be home
a little after nine if he had his lesions
early; and it had been just nine when
sho lay down. '

dressing table. It was after eleven. She
had dozed nearly two hours. Where in
