THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL Is the only newspaper in Salem whose circulation is guaranteed by tho Audit Bureau Of Circulations PATRIOTISM WILL RULE CONGRESS. The Medf ord Mail Tribune is right in its contention that all interests and factions opposed to the government vote against the administration in times like these. For instance, we do not have to go outside of Oregon to find precincts of pro-German tendency voting solidly repub lican, now, just as they did for Hughes for president two years ago. This is not because they love the republican party, but because the democrats are in control and thus represent the government. If the republicans were in power all these malcontents and elements of discontent would vote democratic. The Mail Tribune sizes up the situation pretty well when it says of the failure of the country to respond to the president's appeal and elect a congress of his own party will not materially cnange me course of events. Nearly all of the republicans made, campaigns upon pledges to support the presidents By the time the new congress comes into power, the war will have been over and "peace established. Even should the reactionaries try to organize an opposition to block the president's policies, they will not succeed, for the major ity of republicans place patriotism ahead of party. No one for a moment questions their absolute sincerity in $his respect. This talk about a patriotic issue in the cam paign was political camouflage. The democrats only had the best of the argument in that the rejection of his party candidates might be regarded abroad as a repudia tion of the president's war policies. One of the determining features of the election was the German vote, which except in New York and Mil waukee, where it supportedprojGerman socialists pledged to peace at any price, voted solidly for the republican ticket. This was the case in every section where there is a conosiderable German vote. It accounts for republican success in Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska and other states. It accounts for the re-election of Norris, who has opposed every war measure. . Political revolutions, however, are not undesirable things in this country. We believe the republican party stayed too long in power after the civil war and follow ing the Spanish-American conflict. It might.be a good thing to have a republican national administration two years hence. These changes weaken political machines and foster independent voting. Long-continued power by one party is dangerous even in a republic. The election, with its mudslinging and abuse, cannot however minimize the president's great part in the war the contribution of moral leadership, which has played as important a role as the military and naval exertions of the allies. It has been hailed with delight by our allies, has created a unity of purpose that made them irrisistible and has destroyed the power of the enemy by aiding ma terially in demoralizing morale and in unhorsing autoc racy. ; President Wilson has committed America and the al lies to principles of justice and our ability to stand success will be proven by our adherence to these principles at the peace conference It is for this reason that the president must be supported, and probably will be supported by the new congress despite continued opposition by the reac tionary politicians and beneficiaries of privilege. GERMANY SEETHES WITH REVOLUTION. ard moved in diplomatic and the higher social circles be cause of the position he held. He saw the German people from the. same viewpoint that the- ruling class regarded them. m . A splendid series of articles was written for the Sat- urday Evening Post, by Mr. Roth, who was of German extraction himself, and who had been stationed for years in an important manufacturing city of Germany repre senting the United States. He left that country with Gerard when we entered the war, and his articles were published about the time that Gerard gave the world the story of his experiences as ambassador at Berlin. This man Roth knew all classes of the German people, mixed with them and they talked freely to him. His ar ticles impressed the reader with the fact that he was well posted on the subject he was .treating. . ' ' The writer contended that revolt was sure to come to Germany; that the people at home were talking it even at that early date and that women spread the propaganda to the soldiers home on furloughs. The longer the revolt was delayed the worse it would be from all standpoints, he declared, and predicted that the Russian revolution might seem a tame alfair compared to what was due to happen in the kaiser s empire. This prediction seems to be coming true. Germany is aflame in all quarters and only a speedy peace may fore stall chaos and anarchy. It is likely that some oi the wiser German rulers foresaw the impending danger when they began their ef forts to end the war. It would not be surprising, however, it action came too late. HIS MOTHER OVER HERE. By Edmund Vance Cooke. It isn't alone that I give my boy, Him I. have builded from sorrow and joy, ' My boy who has Just turned man, But I send away what he was each day, Since ever his life began. The boy who yesterday, stooping above, Caressed my lips with a newer love, And although my eyes were dim, I knew that his heart had found its part And I blest that love for him. I am giving the youth who tossed his hat RIPPLING RHYMES By Walt Mason THE WAR LORD. STICK TO YOUR JOB. The lid is off in Germany. The bolshevik movement started by German militar ists to wreck the Russian empire, spread next to Austria Hungary and now bids fair to sweep over Germany itself. It will be remembered that Ambassador Gerard in his articles on Germany and the German people, contended that the kaiser's subjects would never revolt. Mr. Ger- LADD & BUSH, Bankers are receiving subscriptions'now for the JU I IRFRTY BONDS 4th There is sound sense in the statement that is being widely printed in a series of industrial and patriotic ad vertisements. "Things look good over on the west front. The Hun is falling back, snarling and killing as he goes but he is tailing back. I his is splendid news. But let's not fool ourselves. "It's a long way yet to Unter den Linden. The way will be spotted with the bodies of brave young' Americans wet with the blood of those we love best. "They know the price that will still have to be paid. We must go with them in prayer, in spirit, in material aid. "Pray to the just God of Battles who never yet has forsaken righteousness in arms but work as you pray, give as you pray and sacrifice as you pray. For the mo ment the tide of battle sets toward us, so work hard to keep it from ebbing. "Victory is not yet certain. Work steadily to clinch it. Victory will come onl ywith doing and giving. And God help America if we falter! "STICK TO YOUR JOB!" We may not have to go to Berlinit doesn't look that way now unless it is to hold the city and keep order while permanent peace is beirig arranged., But it is the American way to finish a job and keep at it until it is thoroughly finished. That means that we should contribute to the United War Work activities and the Red Cross, and buy bonds and thrift stamps, as long as the government says these things are necessary. In course of time the word will come from official sources that the war is really over and that we may return to our accustomed habits of times of peace and national security. In the meantime the civilian in any capacity has no more right to loaf on the job than the soldier. The noise and enthusiasm of the celebration in Salem, and throughout the country, broke all records. This is not 'a demonstrative community. It is quiet and conser vative. But the lid was off Thursday night as never be fore in its history. It indicated the strain under which the country has been- laboring as the demands of war have grown with its progress. Millions of homes have members in the service, some have made the supreme sac rifice and capacious hospitals are filled with the sick and wounded. While we have but a touch of war compar ed to the European countries, it has made a marked im pression upon every community, and the restriction of personal rights, so unusual in the country, has been felt by all classes. The influenza epidemic, too, followiong in the wake of war, has filled the nation with death and sor row. So when the tension was released by the magic word "peace", the nation was beside itself with joy, a feeling of relief and new found freedom that was indescribable. And even if the news was a little premature the celebra tion brought a better feeling and stronger faith in the future that have caused most people to overlook the fact that it was all a mistake. The various war boards expect to keep right on after the armistice is signed, but their tenure of control will probably be short. American people will relax the mo ment they feel the emergency is passed and food conser vation, defense leagues and all such organizations will find the public paying much attention to them. The envoys may not have anything, to surrender if they wait until Monday. The allies are pushing forward, Maubeuge has fallen, and the fires of revolt are menacing Hindenburg s army from the rear. The war lord had his little day, he flashed his gleam ing saber; "he is," the nations used to say, "a most impos ing neighbor. He's talked of wounds and death and scars, until our heart-strings tingled; he certainly looks much like Mars, with Vulcan intermingled. He poses as the an cient Hun, Attila, bold and haughty; of course he means it all in fun--he's merely rather dotty." In times of peace the nations grinned at Wilhelm and his posing; his war in' the face of the worid, who flouted lord stuff was so much wind, no solemn threat disclosing. itflat - And while the nations erinned and smirked, and thought themselves in clover, the kaiser and his cohorts worked p tput hetir war graft over. They put it over good and strong, they caught the nations napping; as cenutries, the years seem long, since Bill began the scrapping. It'a easy now for us to say, We've learned our lesson fully, and ne'er again can royal jay spring stuff so wild and wooly." Alas, but we forget so soon, as graveward we go roaming! Is any corn that hurts at noon remembered in the gloaming? We'll have long years of peace again we're at that era's portal; if any war lord's strutting then, will we just wink and chortle - The United War Activities drive may be one of the last of its character during the war and deserves sup port. The soldiers will need their ministrations for some months to come. The Red Cross, too, will probably re quire additional funds to complete their work. As he bared his arm, untried.

Uo had not meant to be so late; he had meant to come directly home when his lesson was finished, about half past eight. But some of the old crowd had dropped into Mollie's little studio, and they had sat smoking and talking until late. Keally, ho felt terribly conscience stricken. If only he could get to bed without waking Buth, perhaps he could say ho didn't know the time he got in if she asked him in the morning. Ho was ashamed to think he had been so thoughtless. "Slie s a dear girl! ' he whispered to himself as ho quietly placed one shoe on the floor, then the other, instecd of kicking them off with the racket no usually mMie. "I ought to be ashamed. I am!" he added with a rather sheop ish grin, as he crawled into bed, stay ing on the very edge so fearful was he of waking her. There they both lay wide awake, each trying to conviuce the other they were asleep, and each guiltily awaNe. Fortunately neither was awaro of the ludicrous situation; and when finally, they slept it wax in blissful ignorance that either had lain awake. "What time did you got in, Brian t" Ruth asked in the morning. ' "I didn't look at the clock," he said. "You were fast asleep, so I crawl ed in without disturbing you."
