tor Director General Hines that if they did not
return to work by 7 o'clock Saturday
morning, the railroad administration
vould operate trains.
STRIKERS IMITATE THE HUNS
Desert towns dependent upon rail
transportation for Water and food are
reported hard hit by the strike and
niffering is acute. The mails are also
delayed and motor trucks are being
used by the postal authorities.
The proclamation of Director Gen General
eral General Hines is as follows:
"To public officers, railroad officers
and employes, and citizens generally
in California, Arizona and Nevada: A
strike is in progress on the part of the
train and enginemen and yardmen on
the steam railroads being operated by
the United States government in parts
of California, Arizona and Nevada.

the United States. The strike of the
employes on the steam railroads was
entered upon without any grievance
being presented or alleged. The strike
was and is a violation and repudiation
of the agreements betwen the striking
employes and the steam railroads upon
which they worked and also of the na national

States railroad administration and the

ganizations organizations stated that they believed
they could induce their men to go back
to work and urged that they be given
time to enable them to do this. The
railroad administration has given the
time for this purpose. The director
general has also by publication in the
newspapers of San Francisco and Los
Angeles urged upon the strikers the
absence of justification for their ac action

to work. Nevertheless many of the
strikers have wot yet returned to work

The first drive we had here during
the war was the first Red Cross drive.
The demand on bur county was mod moderate,
erate, moderate, and could have been much more
easily filled than any of the later ones.
But while some gave generously,
others gave indifferently or stingily
and many gave not at all. So our
county failed to go over the top.
The next time we had a drive, the
committee which managed it had a
system planned. The members took
the names of everybody in town,
figured out their resources and alloted
to each how much he or she should pay.
The amounts were figured out quite
accurately, too. Some were assessed
a little more than they could pay;
Kome less; but generally the commit committee

less a person could give mighty good
reason for not paying, he or she had
pressure brought on him or her that
it was not wise to resist. It was
strong: medicine but it worked. Ocala
never failed in another drive.
These tactics were justinable as
well as efficacious. As "all that a man
hath "will he "give for his life," so all
that a man hath should he give for his
country when it is in danger.
But these tactics are uncalled for
and unwise in time of peace.
In the good old days before Hohen-
zollern started hellbent, and when you
could get a square meal for fifty
cents, when a man wanted to take up
a subscription for any object, he took
a pencil and sheet of paper and went
around town, and when he met a
friend he said "come across." And if
the friend thought it was a good
cause, or was just generous anyhow,
he put down his name and what he
could give. Which was perfectly all
But now we are carrying some of
the ways of war into the times of
peace. If a man or a bunch of men
want money for some worthy object,
they make out a list of names and
take it around. If they bring it to
you, you see your name on it, and
other people's names. Perhaps you
see the name of some man who has
been approached and a pencil mark
is drawn thru it. And unless you
know that man well enough to know
he can't afford to contribute, you in
voluntarily think of him as a tidewad,
and because you know- others will
think the same of you, you ante up.
Perhaps you have no interest in the
matter, perhaps you disapprove of it;
perhaps the least amount that you can
reconcile your dignity with giving is
an amount that you can't spare with without
out without inconvenience to yourself or may maybe
be maybe injustice to somebody else. Per Perhaps
haps Perhaps "you have just pinched yourself
to give to a more worthy cause, that
nobody but yourself, the Lord and an
other knows of.
But there is your name on the pa
per, and you know if you don't give
and give at least a certain amount, a
number of people will think you are
stingy. So you ante up, tho you know
in your heart that he Lord loveth not
an uncheerful giver and the amount
you have just separated yourself from
will not add a single shred of asbestos
to your shroud.
We pray our friends that they give
up this practice. It is, if they will stop
to think, only a high-class form of
blackmail. If a man wants a fund in
these piping days of peace, let him
take around his pencil and sheet of
paper in the good old way of the times

YOUR CREDIT IS GOOD. "WHY PAY MORE"
Elsewhere we print a letter from J.
Ogden Armour, head of one of the
big packing firms, to whom a great
deal of the wickedness in this country
is now ascribed. We think that any
reasonable man can see that there is
a great deal of truth and good sense
in what he writes. Without any
prompting from Mr. Armour or any
body else, we recognized that the bill
to take away from the packers their
refrigerator cars was an extremely
vicious piece of legislation and one
mat couid not oe endorsed by any
vell-informed and fair-minded man.
This federal trade commission seems
to us to be the most prejudiced set of
bunglers that ever acted as a barnacle
on the government of a country. It
is about as enlightened as a section of
the Turkish government. Its a good
bluff to say that the present high
prices of meat are due to the packers,
but the intelligent man who looks
around and sees how every trade or
line of business, big or little, takes its
toll, can't help thinking that the blame
is widely distributed.
The heart of America is sound, but
there are many scabs on its surface.
The minority of the committee on

Cavell was in strict accordance with
military law. The minority consisted
of S. S. Gregory of Chicago and Will

seems strange that Americans could
come to such a decision, but then some
Americans tried to justify the sinking
of the Lusitania. The majority of the
committee, however, did not concur in

Mr. Chairman, as I have said, the
sale of intoxicating liquors, in my
opinion, is a prolific breeder of crime.
Overindulgence in liquor does at times
cieate a false courage which nerves
the weak criminal to commit those
crimes which shock the community.
Many times have vicious brutes nerv-
'ed themselves to commit murder and
rape by an overindulgence in the vile
poison within their reach, when if it
had not been obtainable these crimes
would not have disgraces the state. I
confidently believe that a very large
percentage of the cases where inno inno-cenjt

of the brutal rapist and lynchings
have followed in consequence would

for the indiscriminate dealing out of
