Kansas, for April 1. 1017. One of the points on which the lioAvIing dervishes of the Allies me tri veil to shoutinjr is our indebtedness to France. Truly France ill one time, helped us, for her own sake, to shake off the English yoke. Therefore, siiy Hie.

howlers, we should now put on again the English yoke to help France. Is it France these troublors of the peace The people of Leavenworth on last Tuesday elected Mr. J. C. Davis mayor of our city.

The hotly waged contest is over, but not so the responsibilities of the voters. It is not enough to simply elect a man to such an exalted position, a position of trust, a position clothed with great responsibilities. It rather strikes us that in order to assure success for the official and the city, the citizens must support the man whom they have elected iis their chief executive in his efforts and undertakings to make this a better, a greater city. It's trtn, Mr. Davis was not the choice of all of us, but as believers in a democratic constitution which gives the niajorily the right to rule, wc should forget all unpleasantness of the campaign and assist the men (deeted with good advice and None of us can claim to possess the virtues of a saint, none of us can claim to be possessed State of Kansas, County of Leavenworth, ss.

Notwithstanding this, the howling dervishes of the time, the predecessors and largely the direct By the time this reaches our readers Congress, iioaa: in session, may have decided that a state of Avar does exist between us and Germany. No greater calamity could befall any country than war. The Tribune has heretofore striven to preserve the peace for this our country, but should Congress decide on Avar, Ave will, like all other loyal citizens, support the Government to the last ditch.

France, if she ever had a claim to our gratitude, effaced it when she joined with England in the attempt to disrupt our country (hiring the Civil War. But of course, the howling dervishes, who adore England, must forgive France fey that. ernment, namely Equal forbearance, equal friendliness official expressions and equal patience towards both groups of the belliger ents, or equal untorgiveness and equal harshness in official expressions, equal alacrity in demanding, equalfirmness in insisting and equal diligence in enforcing that, the rights, interests and lives of iean Alliance. 3.

However, there is room for improvements, eminent.

I rue the election may not have resulted to the liking of all of hn, but nevertheless nothing would he more folly than to nourish any factionalism in the future, We mu-st prove ourselves true to the American spirit of, Let the majority rule, and forget all antagonism if wc hope? to prosper and improve. A city is very much comparable to a household. If one member pulls to the right while the other pulls to the left, nothing can or Avill be accomplished. It requires united efforts, harmony and the good will of all. Nothing can be more disastrous to a community than political strife.

Lot's now forget the election and every one put his shoulder to the wheel. Leavenworth more than any other city of its size has the material from which great things may be made of; lot's utilize that material. In Unity there is strength. To our sorrow have we seen what political strife will do. bet's work together and our success will be assured.

With a feeling of regret did Ave read the communication by the t'hamber of Commerco in the Times of last Sunday, and Ave hardly 'an believe that such linloyarciti.ens could be amongst us.

It is gratifying indeed to see hoAV the young business men of the city are forging to the front. They seemingly have faith in themselves and the city.

One of them deserves mentioning in particular, Mr. Olson, the shoe man in the Axa building. He just lately has enlarged and remodeled his store, put in a new front, and stocked the inside with as complete a line of up-to-date shoes as ever were shown in the city. That's what we call boosting, and real boosting. Mr.

Olson is a quiet, unassuming kind of a chap, but he has demonstrated that he is an alert business man and a believer in Leavenworth. It's to be hoped that more will follow his example..
