As the result of Germany's chal-
ienga ths wbola of Knrope is Icaraiug
a much neoded losson in oconoray and
ufldeacy; tfes vitality aad solidarity
of tho British empire will theraby bo
augmented and stabilitated for many
generations. Of all tho countries in
tho world tho United States of Ameri
ca is tho least efficient, least oconom
ical and most absurdly govorned.
It should be distinctly recognized
that our present pro-emineuco in com
merce and flnanco is not duo to super
ior organization, favorablu prices or
skillful salesmanship. Tho Allied pow
ers must have munitions of war and
here thoy can purchaset hem in un
limited quantities if they are willing
to pay tho price.
After the war it will possess no lint
ural advantages iu tho markots of the
world save that due to financial pow
er and possession of flitting wealth
unless wo, too, learn tho. l.sson. Why
is it that Germany is so efllcicnt not
alono in war but in industry? It is
becr.uso tho faucies and fp.ds origi
nating in other countries become in
her hands stepping stones to contin
ued advanca in science and industry
..nd no system of education is tolerated
or supported which does not result in
The Idea that every ore born into
the world is capable of a "career" has
sorely blighted our public educators;
I'inancial excgcncics are compelling
the ro-organizntion of tho public
schools of New York city and we
hear considerable discussion of the
relative merits of the different sys
tems of education.
The "Gary" system may be good,
Hit it is ridiculous to talk of its spir-
luul advantages or claim that it will
snablo pupils to lead "broador lives."
The value of Uio system must be
apablo of being exprossed in gold
dollnrs, othorwiso it is swindling the
lax pnyera to adopt it.
The fact that the free born "Ameri
ran is too good to work with his
hands or perform unskilled labor, ac-
'ounts in a large measure for the con-
muni stream of undesirable emigra
tion which flows toward our shores.
Wo must, then, if wo aro to get our
share of tho world's commerce after
tho wnr, cultivate efficiency in edu
cation and government ami ronan
heckling real enterprise with foolish
laws and socialistic vagaries.
Although there is much in the
above with which we can ;.ot agree,
especially tho placing of a standard
roal which is the ability to turn talent
into dollars, still its imner.chment of
tho notion that every Amorican is a
king and should lead and not follow
is forceful. Teamwork Hnd not lead
arship Bhould be emphasised.

With continent Eurdpa burning'
up its subBtance in powder smoko, de-
stroying proparty and life in a manner
unexampled in tho history of the
world; disregarding every law of God
or man that stands between a na

a nation to tho south of us in the
grip of anarchy, it appears from our
viewpoint that the Wilson, proposal
to increase the armament of tho nation
will prove one 6f tho most popular

No one thing that could hannen to

It would remove that ver recurring

Representatives of the warring nn
lions of Europe are on their way to I
meeting nt Bern, Switzerland, for
a conference, goes an item of informa
tion from across tho water. That a
conference will be held is denied and
thero appears moro or less myslerv
attached to the gathering. While the
tendency of tho loaders on both sides
is o go on, for prido is an unyielding
thing and prido is at tho bottom of
tha wholo trouble, yet tho people of
the warring nations recognize that
this is not their fight and evidences
of their unrest may be readily noted
despito tho rigid censorship.
If the common herd, the people who
are bearing tho brunt of battlo and
taxation make up their minds to end
tho foolish struggle they can do it.
Tho occurrence of a boundary line
does not make the people on ono side
saints and on tho other side demons.
Humanity is tho same no matter un
der whatever flag it may be found
ind the interests of all are in the long
run, identical. If this conference
should turn out to bo representative
of the people of these unfortunate
nations and from "the conference they
should evolve a United States of Eu
rope, who shall say that the loss of
blood and property has been in vain?
