Petersburg Press (Newspaper) - November 5, 1915, Petersburg, Indiana
Che Petersburg press. W. D. Crow editor entered in the Post office at Peters a four for transmission through the mails As second class matter. One year in advance__________$1.00 six months in Advance .50 the death of Frank b. Posey care As a personal loss to nearly every Home in this county. The people of every school District in the county knew and loved him. His sympathies were so Broad his temperament so genial and his nature to cheerful and hopeful that he won friends without Effort. He was thoroughly democratic for him every being whom god created had some interest without regard to his color or condition. That interest was entirely unselfish and was inspired by a love of his Fellows that seemed to be born in the Man. He had wide experience in politics but his nature was so confiding that he was easily deceived by scheming politicians. He seemed to be unable to understand Why any Man should want to lie to him. His memory was remarkable. The Only things he Ever forgot were the wrongs done him by men who should have open his friends. Malice never entered his heart it was As impossible for him to hold a grudge a to forget a Friend. Endowed Vith undeniable Genius the very Quah ties that endeared him to his friends his unselfishness and buoyancy of spirit made him neglectful of those details which insure Success in politics. Republics too often Are not governed by the most capable but by the most artful men. But if he failed to secure the material rewards his party owed him and which his friends strove so loyally to secure for him he achieved something More enduring than office and infinitely More Worth while for he carved for himself a Niche in the heart of every Man who came to know him Well and filled it with delightful memories. His friends Are better for having known him and the world is better for his having lived in it. He loved the glorious sunlight the Flowers and Little children. Long after the Petty struggles of politics Are forgotten when the names of the victors have moulded to dust along with their mortal remains and have disappeared from the minds of men there will still live fond recollections of a delightful personality of a heart tuned to Quick response when the string of human sympathy was touched recollections of a Man who lost a try place but won the richest thing in All the world the sincere de Nucion and undying affection of All who knew him. That Man is f. A . May he rest in peace and May it please god to give us More men such As he shipment of arms to foreign belligerents would be the setting of a precedent by us that would be of incalculable injury to us in Case of War with a foreign Power and would probably result in our Complete defeat. One of the speaker at the Evansville meeting assured his hearers that the Kaiser would probably demand reparation and damages from America at the close of the War because of our having permitted these shipments the inference being of course that if the Kaiser did not get the damages he would give us a taste of what Europe is now suffering. The same speaker jokingly referred to Edison s Efi Orts for National defense according to the journal news report. If this individual were in Germany and indulging in such talk about the German government he would probably be promptly shot. Absolutism has its advantages. The Evansville courier is making a fight to have a government munitions Plant located in that City but what would happen to it in Case of War with Germany before the government establishes a munitions Plant any where it should be certain the citizens in the immediate neighbourhood feel that their allegiance is to this country instead of some foreign potentate. The average of citizenship in Evansville can be greatly raised by a Large number of deportations of highly respected but thoroughly undesirable residents. At Evansville oct. 2. 3rd some of the Kaiser s subjects who prefer talking to fighting held an Quot arme embargo Quot meeting. They did this with the knowledge that an embargo on the our Friend Roosa of the Evansville courier says that the steel Industry in this country is enjoying the greatest business in its history consequently we Are All prosperous. Those of our readers who have Stock in the steel corporation May agree with this conclusion but those who earn their living by farming mining or any other of the Ordinary employments in the Rural sections will have to be cited to something More enduring than War orders before they win believe in general Prosperity. Wheat is 30 cents lower than at this time last year Corn is the same and hogs have lost Twenty per cent in Price in the last two vie eks. We suppose no one will deny that the steel Industry and All concerns manufacturing War supplies Are prosperous. If we admit that the Wilson administration is responsible for the War then it follows that democratic policies created the Prosperity in these lines of Industry. However we Are inclined to doubt whether even or. Roosa will claim the democratic party brought on the War. Our Contention is and has been that whatever Prosperity there is in this country is not due to democratic policies but has come about in spite of them through a condition in Europe that has never existed before and probably will never exist again. If Bro. Roosa wants Concrete instances of the kind of Prosperity his party brings let him View the condition of the fruit growers of Carifo Nia where democratic policies have ruined the Industry he might also investigate the sugar Industry conditions of Trade with country merchants the enormous number of Idle men everywhere and he could probably Icahn something to his advantage by investigating carefully the reasons for the general Assumption that such As May he us i a hoi y dependent a Jim the continuance of the War. He will do Iris country a car King service if he convinces the pub c that the end of the War a ill not Brin great Commerce Al to the United states and he wiil also turn the Drif t that has set in so strongly against the party of Wilson and All it stands Foi.
