President Wilson ias had in J. Pler- nont Morgan for a -visit The two 'chatted ' for an hour and presumably they had something to say about business conditions In the country The story sent on from Washington Is that Mr Morgan seemed to be in good hu- mor ae he dodged reporters In getting away from the White Houie In a few days the president will have in Henry Ford of Detroit, and the t w o will do another hour's "chatting They will have something; to say about business condltloni We can easily imagine these two men will be able to get along famously It is all part of a plan special cor respondents are attributing to President Wilson They have, him calling in 'cap'alns so that he and the can talk the matter over, just to learn if it Is not possible for both sides to get a little closer to each other in the "psschologlcal v i e w s they hold It is a plan of w h i c h some good should come President Wilson Is the front of the administration and such men as Morgan and Ford are in a po eltlon to talk for buslnesi The- presi dent Is a good talker who never has anv trouble to make himself under stood He insists that he is filled w i t h good wishes for the success of bjsi ne«s and it will be all right to tell his «tor to the captains At anj rate It is nearly alwavs more than w o r t h w h i l e to have men of big a f f a l i s get together and talk o v e r the situation In a few hours of this thev may learn more of each other than they can in six months reading of what the special cor-espondente send from "Washington NEARER STRINOER.

Thev fee! sure they will be able to get along without a bootlegger in Arthur, a town on the line between Moultrie and Douglas counties Bootlegging in that community Is an offense that calls for banishment They caught a man of the name of VA alker and convicted him of bootlegging In Arthur They fined him heav- i l v , and as he had not enough money to pay the whole sum he was t h r o w n into the calaboose There he languished for a few das Somehow he got together sufficient monev to paj part of the f i n e and he was abie to effect a compromise that « e r u i e d him partial liberty The storv is that he paid part of the fine and then signed a bond in which he bound himself to leave the place shortly and not re f urn for f i f t e e n years He can have the rest of the world to roam In but he is to keep away from Arthur It Is not known where they found statutorj justification for thH disposition of Walkers case, but they are not worrying themselves on this score And perhaps Walker feels that giving up living in Arthur IB not the worst t h a t could b»'all a man ONE'S NEIGHBORS COIIT. It seems that Californlans ara not the. only people In this country who are Inclined to be particular about neighbors Now there Is «, story that folks In Michigan are about to ask for legislation that will forbid Japanese to hold title to land. This movement Is all because of a report that 400 Japanese are to leave the west coast of our country and settle In Michigan They are leaving; California because they want to get to some place where they can own land But Michigan people proceed at once to get exercised We who live In Illinois feel that It may not be safe for us to rush In and try to aalm the foolish fears of Michigan folks. The Japanese might take a notion to head toward our state and who knows that then we would not begin to throw fits' Neighbors do count Eurit Schroeder has ceased to be hu mane office**, but if there IB anybody m town who is disposed to abuse a dumb beast he should know that every police officer In this place has been instructed to see to it that work formerly looked after by Mr Schroefler shall not be neglected e And the next thing will be a code of table manners for patron* of lunch Twenty-four People Lost Lives in Big Crash.
