No city in the United States li
JuBtifi.'ille in passing o.vr the hlrth-
day anniversary of Abraham Lincoln
without fome observance of the day
being in.V.e. The event is jrenenilly
celebrated in the progressive cities by
the griving of a Lincoln Day Han-
quet and jt does seetn that Ardmore
on this occasion should in some nian-
ri'T pay tribute to the great Amer-
ican. Mr. Lincoln's achicvementshls de-
votion to country his distinguished
i-rvie to the nation when it was
noiriR throtik!) its most trylnir hour
his arduous love for ' the constitu-
tion entitle- him to recognition. When
ho was at the helm of states the
union was threatened and he piloted
the ship of state through the most
threatening breakers the republic has
ever seen and had he survived there
is every reason to believe that the
vanquished forces would not have been
treated ns they were Uiat there would
have been much less sectional ha-
tred and that the union would have
been cemented earlier than It was.
The love and respect Lincoln had
for the constitution alone entitles
him to all the honor that this coun-
try can pay him. Ho loved that
siinplo fundamental law that formed
tlw basis of this country's growth.
He loved that law that permitted
him to march from the log cubin of
pioneer days to the presidency of the
republic. He loved th;it law which
f.ives to every American an equal
chance no matter what the surround-
ing in youth might be. He loved
llim l-.iw that eliminated royalty from
the country. If the nation today
could return to the same respect
which Lincoln hail for the constitu-
tion It would cure the country of
every tendency toward bolshevism that
holds In Its hands a torch to destroy
the Institutions of this republic. The
birth anniversary of Abraham Lin-
coln should not pass by unnoticed.
Klntr Constantino has announced
that Prince Georgu of Greece Duke
of Sparta will soon bo married to
Princt 8S Elizabeth of Rumania at
Bucharest and that Princess Helen
of Greece nnd Crown Princo Charles
of Rumania would bo married a few
days later In Athens.
"I have had nothing ti do with
theso marriages." he asserted "nor
has de king of Itumanin. The youne
people liked each other and th Ir
entMgeim-uts were spontaneous. Queim
Marie liked my daughter ami thought
she would make a good wife for her
son. She arranged most of the for-
malities as any mother does."
' But If we are to place credence
In a reliable London juper the Ru-
manian queen didn't arrange the
marriages "as any mother does." The
prospect of two marriages between
the ruling houses of (iiv.-ei- and Ku-
niunia has cans d eon'ud. rubl. mm-
metit in Europe during the i:..t W w
months unu e:peein!ly since I'un-
stuntine's rtuin fi m . .ile in v.il.-

no doubt If they were all "sponl iin-
iMia" Insiead of being lookeil on i.s
The Use of

"There's a Reason?
Sold by grocers
business transactions. There is a
canon law in the Greek church for
bidding the marriage of a brother
and a sister with a sister and a
brother. It was expected on first
announcement of the engagements
that the marriage would b; simul-
taneous to evade this provision. Queen
Sophie of Greece however Is report-
ed to have said that this would not
be necessary however since the King
of Rumania ns Head of the Church
could manipulate the canon law to
suit the occasion. Queen Sophie is
a sister of former Emperor William
II' of Germany now in exile in Hol-
land. Affairs in the Near East just now
Involve Turkey and Greece in such
a way that the future of the latter
country might have a favorable or
unfavorable effect on conditions there.
The Greek political crisis is said to
have been complicated by announce-
ment of the double matrimonial alli-
ance between the royal families of
Greece and Rumania.
If members of royal families wish
to conserve the best interests of their
respective countries nnd are willing
to sacrifice if necessary their own
domestic happiness such business
marriage might not be particularly
odious. But the fact is that such an
alliance often disturbs the domestic
happiness of persons other than mem
bers of the royal family. A person
should be free to sacrifice his own
interests but nt the same time be
careful to see that such does not nt
the same time involve the Interests
The betrothal of Crown Trince
Charles of Rumania affords an ex-
ample of such a sacrifice. In 1918
he was secretly wedded to Mile. ZlJ
Lambrino the daughter of a major
In the Rumanian army. This was a
morganatic marriage. There seems
to bo no doubt that this would have
proved a happy marriage If Charles
had not been a crown prince. The
royal family used every means to
separate them. Charles was placed
in prison where he displayed un-
usual courage for one of his posi-
tion. He declared he would not leave
his morganatic wife even if It meant
that he would lose his succession to
Double marriages between families
are not looked upon In any such mnn-
ner In this country. And a law which
forbids such engagements nnd nt the
same time sanctions a roynl marriage
following a morganatic marriage In
this manner must have been designed
with some tact for straining nt a
gnat and swallowing a camel.
THE REPARATION DEMANDS
It Is barely possible that the allies
have mado the big reparation de-
mands upon Germany for the reason
that France fears for Germany to re-
cuperate her fortuno nnd become
again a formidable nation. France
feels and he world holds a similar
opinion that Germany will again nt.

steps toward the organization of simi-

DETAILS OF DEBATES
IN CENTRAL INDIA
ARE JIJST RECEIVED
N'ew York Feb. 4. Details of tho
debates In the session of the Indian
National Congress held at Nagpur
Central India In December have Just
been received In the mails by the
India Information Bureau of New
York with tho texts of resolutions
addresses etc. at the congress which
have been briefly referred to in cable
advices. Twenty-two thousand dele-
gates from all parts of India Includ-
ing several thousand women assemb-
led at the congress and decided upon
an extension of the movement now in
progress including non-payment of
tajces as an extreme measure.
One of the resolutions adopted
amended the constitution of the con-
gress so as to secure "the attain-
ment of 'swaraJ' (national sover-
eignty) by (ill peaceful nnd legiti-
mate means." A significant omis-
sion from tho resolution was the
clause referring to tho use of "con-
stitutional methods for tho attainment
of self-government within the British
Other conferences held nt Nagpur
took the general attitude expressed by
the congress. The All-India Stua-
dents' Conference passed a resolution
in favor of Immediate nnd uncondi-
tional boycott of tho government and
the government-aided schools and col-
leges." Lnjpat Ral presiding at a con-
ference held for the purpose of pro-
tecting cottlo against slaughter and
export declared that the cattle ques-
tion could not bo settled until na-
tional sovereignty was obtained. -
Tho opening speech of tho presiding
officer of the congress outlined a plan
for the immediate boycott of British
trade. In order that tho ruling pow-
er may bo "gradually exhausted" ho
advocated a plan by which English
planters merchants traders and manu-
facturers In India may be faced with
a scarcity of labor. This he main-
tained would produce national strikes
of unskilled' workmen in the railway
postal nnd telegraph departments.
M. K. Gandhi leader of tho mover-tent
In moving tho resolution to
amend the' constitution of the con-
grefs declared "if India's wrongs
t.ro not redressed and if elementary
Justice Is not done we have no
wish to retain the connection with
the empire but If tho connection
r.enns tho advancement of India we
do not want to desroy It."
Lajpat Ral In supporting Gandhi's
resolution Bald the latter "gave India
the free choice of determining her
own destiny and of no more de-
pending upon British statesmanship
which had proved a failure" and It
meant "giving notice that mdla's
remaining In the empire would bo of
her own freo decision and free will."
Under another resolution unani-
mously ndopted parents are to bo
called upon at a later time to with-
draw their children under ago from
state-aided and state-owned schools
and provisions Is to be mado for
training In national schools. Stud-
ents of 16 are to be called upon to
withdraw from state-aided nnd state-
owned Institutions nnd either to devote
themselves to tho non-conpt ration
movement or continue their studies
in national Institutions. Merchants
and traders in order to make India
economically Independent aro also
to be called upon- tho carry out a
gradual boycott of foreign trado and
to encourage native hand spinning and
