ix'CdrASUiTY OF 77 BRITISH
"With an army of British private
n i French utlkers," said lJonaratte,
near the end cf his days, ''I could
conquer the world"' The judgment
of the great Corsican as to the in
competency of England's officers has
been ratified by many wars. The
blunder of Gen. White in sending a
force against a far larger array which
was in a strong position ought to
compel his retirement from the army,
but it was not so destructive in its
consequences as was the folly of
rkenhain at New Orleans in 1813,
in attacking Jackson's forces which
weie behind the cotton bales, when
he could have flunked them with com
paratively little trouble. Gage made
similar blunder at Bunker Hill.
Technically tie Biitish gained a
victory there, for they gained the
ground fought over, but it was at
such a loss cf life and it brought out
the fighting qualities cf the handful
of Americans so clearly that it was
morally a defeat.
Ia each case, and in many ollicis
which could be cited, the mistake of
the British officers was partly due to
tibtuseness ami tartly to contempt
lor the fighting qua'ilies of their
enemies. When Montcalm, dudng
the conflict known in American
history as the French and Indian
war, but which, in its larger aspect,
is known to the world as the seven
cars' war, was stationed at Ticon
deroga with 3000 men to hold it
agaiuit the British advance under
Abercoinbie, the British having an
army of 13,000, some of bis olllcers
wanted him to retreat, snd many of
them believe-l an attack would mean
not only French defeat, but the
opture of the whole French armv.
Montcalm evident!)' knew Abcr
crombie, however, and consequently
held his ground. White's intclleetu.
id ancestor, At'crcrorcbie, committed
a far more serious and cfl!v blunder
than White, for lie allowed Montcalm
to fortify his posiiion, which, on one
si le, was of pieat natural strength,
he attacked it on thst side instead of
on the sides in which it was weak,
rtferc 1 to bring up his artillery, and
consequently the largest and most
finely equipped British army which
Lad ever appeared on the American
continect along to that time was
beaten with a 1js of 2000 men by a
force numbering scarcely one fif h of
The fighting qualities of the Brit
ish at Ticonderoga were superb, ns
they proved to be t New Oilcans.
Bunker Hill and in the Transvaal,
but no amount of bravery on the part
cf private soldiers and line of officers
can compensate for the stupidity of
commanders. When the youthful
Washington tried to teach the im
pulsive and supercilious Braddnck j
the way In which to ftebt the Indians !
and t ie French, the latter of whom j
fought in the Indian style when this
was advisable, Br.tddock refused
in 1897 on "Municipal Program."
The members of the committee are
Horace E. Deiuing of New York,
Professor Frank J. Goodnow of
Columbia Unive isity. Dr. Albert
Shaw of the Review of Keviews,
New York; Charles Richar Uon of
Philadelphia, Professor I.eo S. Howe
of the University of Pennsylvania,
Geo. W. Guthrie of Pittsburg and
Clinton Uogera Woodruff of Phila
cfclphia. After two years of stu ly and In
vestigation the committee has adopted
a plan of city charter which it be
lieves would jolve many of the exist
ing problems of municipal govern
ment. It favors a einle legislative
chamber, similar to th.M now working
ia this city, but it would tlx tbo
terms of councilmen at six years.
The mayor would hold ollk for two
years, and one-third of the council
men would be elected at each bien
nial election. Special effort it made
to surround the granting of municipal
franchises with strong safe guards, a
four-fifths vote of the council and
the approval of the mayor being
required. The election of council
men at large instead of by wards or
districts is recommenced, and in
order that citizens may have a choice
of candidates unhindered by party
lines, the nomination of candidates
for elective municipal offices is to be
by petition and not by convention.
