ards, is there not danger of having the other thing cor
rupt the very sources of our moral strength? At least,
we might insist on future immigrants, not only from Ger
many, but from every foreign nation, proving their right
to participate in our life and institutions before we ac

."Throw out the Germans and keep them out," is one
nf the issues in the election campaign in England. There
is a growing feeling that no Germans are wanted in thai
country. .
The "peaceful penetration" doctrine by which Ger
mnnv Riirr.eedea so well in spreading her propaganda oJ
fiprmnn mil turn and German language through other
countries, is particularly abhorred in England, which
wishes to see no repetition of such program. No matter
how peacefully inclined the German may be the English
want him to stay out of their country, and, preferably in
his own. ' ,
A large English hotel syndicate has prohibited the
employment of Germans on any of the staffs of its various
hostelleries. The Northcliff papers are standing back
of the campaign to keep the Germans in Germany. .

Mv olf hmitrri tm war has naturally created strong anti-
German sentiment. No doubt a large majority of the
German-Americans were loyal to this country after the
declaration of war. They will hereafter be still better
Americans, because their sons have fought under our flag
and many of them have laid down tneir lives in us ue
ferise. America is the only country these people have
. now. Besides we are a nation, at last moulded into def
inite national unity in the melting pot of war in which
natives and descendants ot all European countries were
comrades, sharing the hardships and dangers together,
fighting and dying side by side. All are Americans now
to the very core. .

truth; that our immigration and naturalization laws have
been entirely too lax. We have allowed enemy agents,
criminals and dangerous political-agitators to come to
America and ply their vocations, pretending for the most
part to be citizens of this nation. We only narrowly es
caped disaster because of this policy and it must be
changed. , , ,.,,.
We have, made laws limiting very strictly the impor
tation into this country of yellow labor because it lives
so cheaply and in accordance with standards which are
below those of our own working people. We wish to keep
up our own high levels of life and not to force our people
to compete with those of lower economic standards.
If this is wise, considered purely from the economic
point of view, why not from others? Why should Amer
icans, with their own social and political ideals, be obliged
to live side by side with new-comers who have no such
ideals? If one kind of labor lowers our material stand-

The world has had enough of kings; it's sent some as
a starter, to where dead cats and junk and things are
taken by the carter. The world has1 had enough of
thrones; it's weary and complaining; and Europe's strewn
with dead men's bones because some chumps were reign
ing. But there is one who stands alone, whom all the na
tions honor; King Albert's welcome to a throne, though
monarchy's a goner. He didn't loaf in marble halls, as
loafed some princely blighters, but donned his workday
overalls and fought with common fighters. He didn't
shim the danger zone as being God's anointed, or bask at
ease upon a throne with all the world disjointed. "A king
is but a poor excuse," he said, his banner flying,, "if he
won't scrap to beat the deuce when liis own folks are dy
ing." He hung his crown upon a nail, put mothballs in
his ermine, and like a farmer with a flail he thrashed the
- bloody German. A thousand kings have stalked in pride
since thrones were first invented; a thousand kings have
reigned and died, their scepters owned or rented; a score
have won undying fame, by men's applause rewarded; in
all the list no nobler name than Albert's is recorded.
" Among the many superlatives to which the United
States may lay claim is that of being the biggest insur
ance company on earth.-
It is an outgrowth of the war. The government un
dertook, immediately after entering the conflict, to fore
stall any repitition of old war-pension experiences, bv in
suring its fighting men on a co-operative and economical
basis-the men paying a very low rate and the government
itself making up whatever losses might result. Insur
ance in this company was not made compulsory, but its
benefis were urged with such good effect that nearly all
the soldiers and sailors have taken policies, averaging sev
eral thousand dollars each.
The total amount of these policies, it is announced.
had reached approximately $40,000,000 up to the sign
ing of the armistice.
This amount is $10,000,000 more than the estimated
cost of the war to the United States. As an index of the
size and power of the company issuing these policies, it
dwarfs all comparison. The biggest private insurance
company in the world has less than $4,000,000 in policies
outstanding, uncle bam s company has literally as large
a volume of life insurance as all the private insurance
companies in the world put together.

and stable conditions of organized government and so

real surprise that he is denouncing this government for in

The Portland Telegram is continually harping about
the reliability of its Associated Press news service in
spite of the fact that it prints the most sensational, mis-
leading and someimes ialse headlines of any paper in
the northwest. Every edition of that paper springs some
thing new and startling On the basis of a telegraphed or
cawed rumor and one never hears of it again. The next
edition contains something entirely new but fully as start
ling as the previous one and day after day the paper is
just one continual rumor factory. Papers like the Tele
gram, which depend mainly on street sales for their cir
culation seem to think they have to keep the public stir
red up with big headlines.
The road building program mapped out bv the state
highway commission for this year will help Oregon in
every way. ihe only criticism we really have to make of
he present program is the decision to pave the Albany-
Jefferson road, while the stretch between Salem and
Jefferson is In much worse condition and it seems to us
should receive attention first. If the idea is to award
hat amount of paving to Linn county, it should not have
the effect of delaying improvement of so important a
section of the Pacific highway as that between Salem and
Jefferson, now the worst portion of the highway between
he Columbia river and the Calitorma line. It should be
one of the first places attended to.
Really, the government should keep on building
wooden tubs in order to keep the landlords and restaurant
keepers of Portland from going to the poor house. The
Oregonian and Telegram howl about the waste of money
in war work unless it is spent for the sole benefit of
ortland, the same papers pleading for a continuation of
he waste. Portland ought to be able to secure enough in
dustries which are of a permanent nature to keep her
people employed, and could do it without robbing the sur-

But because Brian was so uncommun

one day when talking of a woman he
knew. It would perhaps have made for
her peace of mind had she "spilled"
a little in lieu of holding back all her
emotion, and her thoughts. .
Brian was an enigma to" her at this
time. After her Washington trip, move
so than ever. Scarcely ever did he find
fault. Yet all the time ho made her feel
that he was about to do something; and
that no matter how it turned out she

Maridel seemed to understand that
Buth was passing through some sort of
experience which might react to his
advantage, if ho could keep from mak
ing the mistake of showing his feoling
for her. So he avoided being alone with
her, and while ho was just as thought
ful, just as kind, was not as obviously
ijo as he had been.
Without making it appear that he
was ondeavorina to save her. he light

That he did all this without in any
way approaching Kuth, or without let

Dimly, Kuth sensed he was trying to

said to herself. Then: "Ho didn't mean

more than he intended."

on tho eternally sickening subjeet of
