ANOTHER UNFAIR ATTACK
The Times-Union takes the pose of
being superior to the personal fav favoritism
oritism favoritism or prejudice displayed by
most other papers, and in most in instances
stances instances suceeds fairly well, but it has
never forgiven President Wilson for
his success, and never fails to take a
whack at him once in awhile, i It is
obvious that its criticism of the pres
ident is founded on something more
narrow than public policy, for some sometimes
times sometimes it finds fault with him for do
ing the very thing that it finds fault
with him for not doing at other times.
It is probable that Mr. Wilson never
thinks of the T.-U., let alone pays any
attention to- what it says, but if he
did he would find it impossible to
The T.U.'s latest outbreak is on ac
count of the protest of the American
government against British interfer interference
ence interference with our shipping. It complains
first of the friendly (or as it says
apologetic) language in which it is
couched. It also says that the whole
world has been put on notice that the
United States will not fight under any
circumstances, refers to our "jelly "jellyfish"
fish" "jellyfish" policy toward Mexico, and winds
up by comparing Wilson's policy with
that of Cleveland as set forth by the
latter's famous message to Congress
in regard to the Venezuela incident.
The Star respectfully submits to'
the Times-Union tha for the past
sixteen years, or ever since Great
Britain gave us her moral support in
the Spanish -American war, that it
has been taken for granted that
nothing could come up between the
two great English-speaking nations
that could not be adjusted by peace peaceful
ful peaceful means. We have seen this tacit
understanding referred to times with without
out without number in the Times-Union, and
as long as it exists a practical ulti ultimatum,
matum, ultimatum, such as Cleveland's message,
would be out of place.
It doesnot seem to the Star that
the language prefacing the note,
which the T.-U. styles as apologetic,
is any more than the usual diplomat diplomatic
ic diplomatic terms prefacing almost any docu document
ment document except a declaration of war.
The Star doesn't think the whole
world has been put cn notice that the
United States will not fight under
any circumstances. It has been put
on notice that it will not fight except
for some very grave reason, and any
reader of the Times-Union would
suppose that paper approved of and
would uphold that policy.
The Times-Union has forgotten,
but the Star hasn't, that Mr. Cleve Cleveland
land Cleveland was as much of a jellyfish in re regard
gard regard to Mexico as Mr. Wilson; in
fact, more so, for Wilson has proven
by his policy ,of forbearance that he
is trying to bring good out of evil.
Cleveland allowed American citizens
to stay in s Mexican jails without
making any protest, and during his
administration Mexicans raided across
the border, carried off cattle and
committed other outrages whenever
they pleased, unhindered by the Unit United
ed United States authorities. Also, Mr.
Cleveland, year after year, allowed
Canadian cruisers to annoy, overhaul
and sometimes confiscate "American
fishing vessels. The far-famed, and
over-famed Venezuela incident was
the only occasion on which Mr. Cleve Cleveland
land Cleveland ever showed any firmness in
foreign affairs, and there is much
reason to suppose it was only a big
The Times-Union asks, "How many
Grover Cleveland's protests would
have been unheeded?" The Times Times-Union
Union Times-Union can best answer that question
by giving a list of Cleveland's pro protests
tests protests and showing how much atten attention
tion attention was paid to them.
Quite the opposite to the Times Times-Union's
Union's Times-Union's comment is the following
from the Savannah News:
"No other act of President Wilson
has touched so responsive a chord as

Bait' Should Be Segregated.
One Indianapolis man has learned
something about fishing by an experi experience

On his arrival at the lake he began
looking around for bait, which, he
was informed, was one of the n-eces-sary
articles in a fisherma'n's outfit.
He spent hard-earned money .for a
supply of frogs and crickets, which
were highly recommended as being
alluring to the lake fish.
Shorty, as o is known, had a nice,
new green minnow bucket, and in
this bucket he placed the frogs and
crickets. That night he slept peace peacefully,
fully, peacefully, with now aad then a pleasant
dream of heroic struggles with the
big fish of the lake. He was going
fishing in the morning. He got ip,
gathered his traps and calamities to together
gether together and then inspected the bucket
of bait. The "crickets had disappeared,
but the frogs were still there, and
they appeared to have fattened con considerably

The principal cause for an outbreak
of cholera is the presence of cholera
bacilli in the drinking water supply
of a city. Its descent is sudden and
widespread. Almost an entire popu populace
lace populace can be stricken at once. The
stricken person, usually, is dead or on
the road to recovery within 24 hours.
Sometimes, however, a fever hangs on
for several days, in some instances
resulting in death. It is not believed
that the disease can be communicated

Proper Care of the Eye.
According to Dr. Woods Hutchin Hutchinson,
son, Hutchinson, the common cause of homeliness
or unattractiveness in the eye is red redness,
ness, redness, either of the eyeballs themselves
or of the lids. This is what biolo biologists
gists biologists call an acquired, not an inherit inherited,
ed, inherited, condition, and is caused either by
the presence of disease and tilth germs
or by eye strain- The trouble can be
prevented by absolute cleanliness and
by fitting the eyes with proper glasses.
