John Wunderlich, for sheriff, should
be kept in the minds of every demo

Tuesday, April 18, and then they
should march in one solid phalanx to
the polls and vote for him. John
Wunderlich is a good man, and no
one will ever regret voting for him.
There are not nearly so many op
pored to school bonds as there were
two years ago. Since the parents
have become familiar with the condi
tions of the old High school building
they have wisely concluded that we
need a school house and need it badly.
The bonds ought to carry this time by
a large vote.
Perhaps editorial opinion doesn't re-i
licet the opinion of the people of a
nation, and in some cases it doesn't
try, but, if you want to know how the
editors feel about preparedness, the
Literary Digest has questioned five
hundred of them scattered over every
state in the union, and learns that the
editors are for this preparedness
strong. In the army, the average
figure is for a regular army of 285,078
and a reserve of 1,215,'J50, which is a
big increase over present figures. And
they are even stronger for a large
ravy; forty per cent think a navy of
second rank will do, but sixty per
c-nt want a navy equal to Great Brit
ain's. And, whether these editorial
opinions reflect the sentiment of the
nation, the nation is going to vote for
them, for both big political parties
will be for preparedness, differing
only in degree and methods to biing it
lie used up his life till the thread ian
out. If Mfe is worth living at all, it
is worth living to the end. Th2 plans
of the Civator do not provide fov any
waste in the world. Growth to the
end is the natural order of things,
and when things stop growing they
die. A man may continue growing
mentally and spiritually although he
may have reached four score or four
score and ten, unless, of course, he is
broken in health. A man of eighty
three entering college as a student
is an example worth keeping con
stantly before us.

Securities valued at 2,000,000
pounds and suspected as being of Ger
man ownership, seized from mails in
transit, now are in possession of the
English prize court, according to an
announcement by the foreign office.
Securities have not yet been declared
absolute contrabrand, but it is possible
they soon will be placed on the contra
brand list. Meanwhile seizures will be
continued on the ground that under
the orders in council these securities
establish credit for hostile belligerents
and therefore can be legally held up.
The authorities in London declare that
innocent ownership "can be easily
proved by reference to the banks which
hold any of the detained securities and
that therefore nothing in the nature
of a hardship beyond a slight delay is
liable to be suffered by innocent own
ers. The American government has
not yet protested against the seizure
of securities, but Ambassador Page
has transmitted numerous inquiries to
the British office on the subject of
such detentions. These inquiries have
been made mainly at the request of
American banks to which detained
securities were addressed.
Whenever a officer is refused per
mission to quarantine any house which
is deemed necessary by the author
ities, the same should be reported to
the proper officers and the parents
who refuse such permission arrested
and fined. It is not a pleasant duty
for any officer to quarantine anyone,
but he is compelled to do his duty.

It is pretty thin argument to say
that the voting of bonds for a new
school building will retard emigration
to our city. It will be hard to find a
city or town in the state that is not in
debt for a school or some other public
building. And a man who is looking
for a new location, will always prefer
a town that has up-to-date sciiool
buildings as well as good schools.
Such a newcomer wants a desirable
place to educate his children, and
wants to pay for same, and never in
quires as to the bonded indebtedness
of the school district.
