A Good Riddance. "
President Wilson did the right
thing in getting: rid of both Gen.
Goelhals and Chairman Denman
whose bickerings about the man
agement of the shipbuilding pro
gramme had become a public nu
isance. Evidently both were to
blame in some -measure for the
quarrel and the delay in the most
important work, and it was ap
parent, as the President decided,
that the trouble could not be eli
minated so long as either of them
remained on the job
Gen Goethals has bulked large
in the puclic eye as the builder
of the Panama Canal. He maj
not deserve all the credit that is
given him for that job, but some
men who make. a success in one
instance fail in another. Soon
after Gen. Gcethals' appointment
as manager of the shipbuilding
programme he was wined and
dined by members of the steel,
corporation, and this was follow
ed by his announcement that no
wooden ships would be built, but
all would be constructed of steel
Then followed the disclosure bv
Chairman Denman that Goethals
had agreed to pay a price for
steel nearly double that paid by
the navy. This revelation
caused a good manny people to
question Goethals' capacity as a
business man and his disregard
of the proprieties was evident.
Then, too, he appeared to think
he should have a free hand and
go ahead without consulting the
shipping board Chairman Den
man naturally resented this and
it was impossible for the work to
go on with both- men on" tie job.

The Washington D C Times,
for Tuesday, June 26th, con
tained an article three columns
wide aud 19 inches long, set in
large type; extremely large in
fact, in which Cardinal GibboniJ
is quoted as follows:
I do not believe in national pro
hibition of light wines and beer.
and am of the opinion that such
a law could not be enforced.
I am opposed, the Cardinal,
continued, to any state wide or
nation-wide prohibition measure.
A law of this kind interferes
with the personal liberty and
rights of the people and creates
hypocrisy on the part of the pub
If the people of any particular
country district find conditions
such that to have local option
would mean the betterment of
the community, then thej
should close the saloons in that
district. But when it comes to
having prohibition in large
cities it is a bad thing. Pro
hibition in any of the large cities
is practicalfy impossible for en
forcement however far-reaching
the attempts are to carry out the
law, notwithstanding reports
that the law has been carried
out successfully in certain loca
The uninitiated might believe
that this big three column display
of the cardinal's mouthings is a
fete of journalism due to the ed -itor's

There are a great many people
wno would be very much bene
fited by taking Chamberlain's
Tablets tor a weak disordered
stomach. Are you one of them?
Mrs M R Searl, Baldwinsville,
N Y, relates her experience in
the use, of these tablets: I had
a bad spell with my stomach
about six months a&ro. and was
troubled for two or three weeks
with gas and severe pains in the
puof my stomach. Our druggist
advised me to take Chamberlain's
Tablets. I took a bottle home
and the first dose relieved me
. wonderfully, and I kept on
taking them until I was cured."
These tablets do not releive pain
but after the pain has been re
ceived may preyent its recurrence.

The article referred to bears
all the gear marks of either an

special prominence through fear
of a loss of patronage. The ob

vital fact is that Cardinal Gibbons
