PREMIER MILLER AND
Terrific attacks are being directed
from Paris on Premier Millerand,
now at Spa attending the meeting of
the supreme council.
He is charged with being a cats
paw in the hands of Premier Lloyd
George, with being bamboozled into
concession after concession from
which no one gains anything but
England, and. in general, with play
ing a poor part In a game in which
the British unite with German in
triguers against France.
In the actual decisions reached at
Spa little is found to justify criti
cism so savage. Herr Stinnes' re
lapse into typical ante-beliunv Ger
man arrogance was sternly rebuker
by the presiding officer. Lloyd
George told the Germans their duty
in unqualified terms. The ultima
tum on German military forces com
pels the Berlin authorities to reduce
their army to 150,000 men by Octo
ber 1 and to 100.000 by January 1.
The ultimatum on coal calls for the
delivery of 2,000.000 tons of coal a
month, whereas the treaty stipula
tion was for only 29.000.000 tons a

hat other ccurss remained but to
consent to some concession? As the
German delegates remarked, council
ukases dig no coal and the German
labor situation is difficult and floods
have caused delaj's.
M. Millerand's offense lies not so
much in what has been done at Spa
as in what he has said. He has .af
firmed that the allies "intend to treat
Germany liberally. If Germany can
prove that modifications in the orig
inal treaty are necessary." He add-.
ed that the "allies' have no thought
of chastising Germany." He has ev
en promised that" the allies would
"help her toward recovery, provided
Germany is equally determined to
execute her treaty obligations."
It is because of these utterances
that the premier's political oppon
ents see an opportunity to form a
combine against him and hurl him
from power. And still, what he has
said is the first Frenchman in respon
sible station to express a Judgment
from things as they are and not from
things as France would like to have
them. If his enemies succeed in
their plot and supercede him, in what
better status will his successor find
The allies must help Germany. Its
people form a great majority of the
population of Europe outside of Rus

disaster and poverty for the rest of
the continent. If merciless allied ex
actions cause the fall of the present
Berlin government, it will be follow

bolshevist government, the one as

The growth of weeds over the city
has brought on a great deal of com
ment from a number of the resi
dents of the city as well as the vis
itors who have motored through
here and it would seem that there
should be some effort. made to keep
these weeds cut down as much as pos
sible. In a number of places the
weeds hare grown to such an extent
that they resemble a tropical jun
gle having reached a great height
and are growing in rank profusion.
Also in a number of places the weeds
along the sidewalks have grown so
that to travel along these walks is
almost equal to receiving a bath as
the water soaked weeds transfer tluir
moisture to the piisserby.
The property owner whoe place is
obscured by the growth of weeds cer
tainly should for their own benefit,
get busy and cut the weeds as a
large crop this year will mean an
even larger one next season and the
removal of the weeds will add to
appearance of the property at a large
array of rang growing weeds does
little toward beautifying a home.
The weeds along some of the high
ways are also in shape for cutting
and this might also apply to Main
street where a very fine crop of grass
and weeds can be found at different
spots along the curbing.
Let us have a weed day and every
body get out and proceed to clean tip
on the rank growth of weeds and
make the streets and residence pro
perty of the city more attractive.
