“I know that my vote will be
criticized from one end of ^hc

leave to my chihiren land and
riches, nor fame, but I can leave
to them a name that regardless of
consequences I never hesitated to

“Prayerfully impressed wnh
the gravities of this situation and
appreciating the penalties that wat

overtook him.
Mr. Stainback was a man of ster-1 character, wnhnut guile, envy j

cheerful word and smile for every
one he met, and to know him was j
to be his friend. He was never!
100 busy to do a kind favor or to I
help others in distress. I
He will be missed by those who j
knew him so well, and especially ‘
by his family, to which he was so i
kind and devoted. |

judgment call. IVlay he rest in
peace and arise at the great judg

I liberty and justice, uphold the laws ot the land, and give undivided
I and w illing support to those measures w hich may be adopted by the
I constitutional auihorities in prosecuting the war to a successful issue
and in obtaining a secure and just peace,
The lime for differences has e.\pired. The President, from the day
of the sinking of the Lusitania, exercised a self-restraint that proves
him to be a zealous lover of peace. He is a quiet, thoughtful man,
whose habits of life have begotten a natural distaste for the "thunder
ot the captains and the shoutings."
It IS a sad and serious indictment
—not of the German people, but
of the autocracy that has sinned
against Germany and the world—
(hat a I’rcsideiit who so deeply ab
hors blooOstied, has been forced to
appeal to the stern arDitrainent ot
me s» otd.
Henceforward there is but one
course for a good citi^en to pursue
and that is to rally to the Flag.
“To doubt would bring disloyalty.
To falter would be sin."
I’erson.^lty, I am reconciled to
war, because 1 believe that we are
fighting for the only son of civili
zation that means an end to all war.
I am not in favor of pernianent
universal military service. I am
against the Imperial (ierman Gov- j
eminent, because it .stands for uni- ■;
versal military service. That gov
ernment has for 30 years prepared
to live by the sword. According i
to Holy VX'rit, it must die by the
sword. When the government 5
ihat deities blood and iron shall i
perish from the earth, then and
not till then, will the nations for
get war, and in their dealings with each other have respect to the
ciples enunciated in the Sermon on the Mount.
