J As the war proceeds, England is becoming more and more an
example of state socialism. The government is now opening na
tional kitchens, in order that the people may have good and well
tpokJbd food fit low cost- There were, up to a month ago, 250
of these national kitchens in operation, and it was expected that
2000 would be doing business within three months. At the open
ing of one of these national kitchens, the queen sent a message,
expressing her interest, because she. thought they would be of
great service to the country during the food difficulty. One of
the speakers at the opening of this particular kitchen expressed
the hope that when people got accustomed to them, and found that
they could get food cheaper and better cooked, and with less
trouble in home life, the "habit would be permanently establish
ed. " The war is changing many things. Will one of its results
' be the bringing in of the time when all food will be bought and
prepared under government direction t - '
The age of heroes has not passed. They are more numerous
by far in proportion to the whole population than ever before.

It is proposed to amend the . tax
laws so that legacies and bequests
for public purposes and for the uso
f.f religious, charitable and educa
tional Institutions shall be relieved
of taxation under the revenue acts
of 1916 and 1917. These exemptions
were allowed in all previous War-
sevenue measures by the govern
ment; and they are in line with the
policy adopted by all the sUtes of
the Union which has InheriUnce tax
laws excepting nine, and they are
in accord with sound reason and good
public policy.

Business interests in Germany are
not dazzled by the paper victories cf
the Junkers. They know that there
Is a day of reckoning, and some of
them are already "casting an anchor
to windward." Dispatches from
Switzerland reveal that German
agents have been in the neutral
countries gathering up all available
paper currency of tbe United States.
In some of the neutral .countries
American paper was selling as low
as 80 cenU on tbe dollar. While the
German press has been boasting that
American bonds would be worthless
and American paper currency with
cut value after the war, the flnan
ciers have been quietly . hoarding all
the American paper they can secure.
A dispatch from Geneva to tbe New
York Times relates that American
paper has advanced from 80 to 33
within the last three weeks by rea
son of the German demand. An oc
casional flash of lightning illumin
ate the gloom that hangs about
Germany, revealing the real Germany
wmcn tne junaers sees, to aecp
from tne allied nations.
Exposures of the attempts of Ger
man secret agents to foment trouble
between this country and Japan, have
Lad beneficent results. For the first
time 'Xmeircan people are beginning
to get 'a dar. view of the Japanese
governmnt and 1U foreign policy.
One of the results of the closer
friendship between the two nations
Is the turning over to the United
States by Japan of fifty merchant
ships. Fifteen have been purchased
outright, and charters for thirty-five
others have been granted by the Ja
panese governmnt A number v of
these vessels are. already on their
way to San Francisco and others will
go direct to the Atlantic coast via
the Panama cabal.1 Japan's evidence
rf good will should not be lost upon
the American people; It Is time for
us to discard our yellow spectacles
when looking In the direction of Ja
pan. Los Angeles Times.
Yes; high . time. The people of
Japan, ouUide of the yellow news
papers of that country, have all along
been most friendly to the United
SUtes. This friendship dates back
to the very beginning of tbe opening
of that country to the commerce of
the outside world, and it has con
tinued unbrokehty to the present -
In tbe early time, when an Indem
nity was assessed by the foreign
nations against Jspan, for firing up
on their vessels, the United SUtes
gave back 1U part of tbe indemnity,
and the Japanese built with the mon
ey a breakwaster . In one of their
chief harbors, to, commemorate the
great showing of kindness and this
memorial sUnds there for all time.
When the peace meeting was to
be held at the close of tne war with
Russian, Japan was glad to have the
meeting In the United States.
There are a thousand ties that
bind tbe two countries In friendship,
the enumeration of which would take
volumes. . '
Japan has remained true, to her
friendship, though the United SUtes
hss not at all times given her In re
turn the credit for good Intentions
and honesty that she has by her
faithfulness and honesty of purpose

tlon provided In the 'national con
scription act. Many leading mem
fcers of the organization asserted
that tbe Quakers are always ready
to do their part In a war waged In
defenre of civilization and of one's
country. A memorial signed by
Ciore than one hundred delegates
lecitcs that:
"We do not agree with those
who would utter sentimental
platitudes while a mad dog Is
running. amuck, biting .women
and children. We believe that
wrong Is relative and has de
grees; that there are greater
things than human life and
worse things than war. There
is a difference between peace as
an end and peace as means to an
end. We do not want with
' dishonor or a temporary; peaea
with evil. We will not equivo
cate with honor or compromise
with wickedness. We must rot
only so jk to save ourselves from
war. but posterity as well, and
we must not misUke pictures or
the 'names of things for the
things themselves. It Ukes two
to make peace, but only one to
make war."
Plainly tbe breed of mlliUnt
Quakers, of which General Greene of
revolutionary fame was a shining ex
cm pie. Is not .yet extinct Even the
Fociety of Friends is abandoning tbo
doctrine of peace at any price. The
minority delegates asked that no ex
f inptlon should be made for members
of the Society of Friends. They hold
that such an exemption Is a reflec
tion on the loyalty of their church.
When an oppression becomes so
Intolerant that a Quaker will fight
It has pUlnly parsed humifa limit.
This display of patriotism on the pa"t
of so many delegates of the national
convention of the Society of Friends
choold not be disregarded at Wash'
ington. To exempt any one from mil
iUry service-by reason of his rellg
iout scruples savors very much of a
onion of church and sUte; It Is re
pugnant to the democratic idea that
every citizen Is the equsl of every
other before the law. That the Quax.
ers themselves are divided on the
question of militaiy service is proof
that one would not be forswearing
tis religion in drlng his part to do-
fend his country. The fight of de
mocracy against despotism Is per
sonal to evry citizen of the United
States; congress would make no mlv
ake In repealing In toto the section
of the federsl conscription act which
piovides for religious exemptions.
