Garfield, the fuel administrator. It may have been more than just a debate possibly a coke was wagered anyhow this paper was called to settle the controversy, which it did without hesitation in favor of Dr. Martin, who eontended that the fuel administratorwas a son of the former president, Which he was; his eldest son. James A. Garfield had a wife and live children, four boys and one girl. The wife's name was Lucretia and the children in the order of their ages were as follows: Harry W., James R., Mol-lie, Irwin and Abram. them. Another Allen county lady is j supposed to have a letter from a sol- j dier boy thanking her for the woolen socks he received, adding he had to I pay a dollar for them.t There are various kinds of slackers in this country) but the measliest, mangiest of all is the man or woman whose gossipy tongue is used to slander the noble women and men who are doin not only their bit but their. best for the greatest mercy 'organization the world ever knew, the American Red Cross! And The Journal points with a goad deal of pride to the fact thafrno such slanderous reports gain credence in this city. o There are evidences on every hand that the people of this country are thoroughly awake to the possible damage alien enemies may do this country in time of war. For more than a century the foreigner within our gates was welcome and no questions asked. He may have been an anarchist, nihilist- or an agent of the war department of some country which mixht have designs on U. S. territory but it mattered not. Now, however, , a different situation confronts the alien in this country. Up in Kansas City, Kas., the city commissioners are refusing to renew th? licernes.of pool halls operated by foreigners giving as their reasons for doing so thefact that such resorts are rendezvous 'for alien enemies. The reason is " a sound one. Every cijty, large and small, should fake a like stand oh the matter. Men of German, Austrian, Turkish or Bulgarian birth if, they comport themselves properly should not be molested, but a thousand men should be ready to spring on any one' of either nationality who treads in treason's-path. ; o 1 Round About I -Cof f eyvi'l ! e I Robt. A. Watt has been reappointed postmaster at Edna. under the iee to get air and can be shot with rifles or stabbed with pitchforks. x Parsons is planning on a new water reservoir that will hold 200,000,000 gallons of water. It is to be located on the high ground northeast of the city midway between the Neosho river and Parsons. Six months for construction of the new reservoir is to be al lowed. FARMER BURNED TO DEATH. Westmoreland, Kas., Man's Body Found in Ruins of His Home. Westmoreland, Kas., Jan. 23. Cic-tor LelieVre, a young farmer six miles southeast of here, was burned to death in a fire which destroyed his home early today. His neighbors discovered that the house had burned and found the hatred body of the owner in the ruins. Lelievre's wife and children were visiting in Topeka. We don't claim that the people of Coffeyville are better than oth ers in every respect nut tney certainly are not lying about the Red Cross in this city like the people of many surroundings towns are doing. Possiblv it is due to the confidence the people of Coffeyville have in thei women and men who are managing the local affairs of the Red Cross organization; th?n, too, it may be due to the fact that Coffeyville people' early last summer, during the days' following the cyclone, were given practical knowledge of just what good ; work" the Red Cross does. Anyhow, not any of half a hundred false reports about the great- mercy organization that are floating around in other towns circulate in this city. For instance, the Iola Register's attention has just been called to a rumor that a woman from that county visited Camp Doniphan and found that Ota sweaters made by the Red Cross were being sold to the soldiers, not given J. F. Callea, editor of the Pittsburg Kansaiv suffered two I'ractmed ribs and possibly internal injuries when he fell on the street yesterday. Peter Esch, a.

Mincklev has tendered his res ignation as head of the Frontenac schools.

GUNS ROARED SEVEN A Paris, Mo., Soldier Saw Tan lis Action at Cambrai A Paris, Mo., boy writes home: We worked like Trojans for the last twenty days hauling up guns and ammunition to make the big drive you have read about long before this call ed "-the Battle of Cambrai." Much of our work is done at night. When we go into the trenches we have oil burning tractors that make very little noise; even then some outpost picket will hear us and send in word to the machine gunners. We stay below the ground until the "shower" is over. I wish I could tell you about those tanks, but it would take more time than I will have. I got to see them in action, and they are the stuff to give 'em. I hauled four hundred French refugees in one train. A more pathetic scene I never saw. Plodding along the road in the mud shoetop deep, they caried in a bundle under their arms all that is left of their belongings. Women with wee babies were so happy to be free once again. None of them know America is in the war. When they learned we were Americans they grabbed some of the boys and kissed them. Some of the poor old men and women were crying. They tell terrible stories of the treatment at the hands of the boche. For seven days those cannon have never stopped. Right now they are drum firing. That means like this was advocated by J.

IS LUMBER NEXT? ernmental regulation of the pried !if lumber is not an impossibility and the industry should make its plan& accordingly, Frederick B. Bolman of Leavenworth, Kan., president of the Southwest Lumbermen's association, declared in his address opening the annua! association convention here today. The convention will close Friday night. Several hundred delegates from all parts of the southwest are attending. Every member of the association must do his part toward helping to win the -war and no sacrifice the nation may be called upon to make will be too great if it bring the end of the war Mr. Bolman asserted. "Government fixing of the price of lumber may seem looking a long way into the future, but in these changed times the government finds it necessary to announce overnight such radical regulations of industry to meet emergencies that I suggest that you consider its possibility and how we would adapt ourselves to it should it come, he said. Mr. Bolman reported a prosperous year for the association with a substantial increase in membership. He urged that all questions taken up bv the convention be approached with a serious spirit in keeping with war times. WORRIED ABOUT LABOR. Ttwn Men and Boys May Be Asked to Help Out Rural IVends.
