The resignation of William Jennings
Bryan as secretary of state indicates
quite clearly that there win be no back
ing down on the part of the United
States in its demands upon Germany.
Esther Germany must curtail its sub
marine warfare to such an extent that
sea tragedies like the Lusitania horror
will never be repeated, or she will lose
the official countenance of this repub
lic. War may soon follow the sever
ance of diplomatic relations.
President Wilson stood for firmness,
and with the single exception 'of Bryan
was supported by every member of his
cabinet. Bryan stood for conciliation
not to say vacillation and weakness.
A great pacificist, the author of thirty
arbitration treaties, he would tempor
ize at a time when Mars is so plainly
in the ascendant that even the United
States must read the portent.
It is improbable that Germany will
recede an iota from the privilege of
using her submarines at her pleasure,
of sinking passenger boats and merch
antmen when she sees fit, of drowning
non-combatants when they get in the
way. The so-called rules of "civilized
warfare" will be broken when she
wills. In this respect Germany isjiot
illogical, since no warfare can be civ
ilized, and making rules for it Is like
trying to regulate a Jungle battle be
tween gorillas and orang outangs.
From the standpoint of its material
welfare, and laying altruism and ideal
ism aside, the United States would
perhaps lose little and might gain
much through entering the war as an
other German opponent. As a neutral
which neither side is able to use to its
advantage, both sides are beginning to
hate and despise us. The English are
coldly critical, the French sneering,
the Germans frankly hostile. The
Germans are especially wrathful be
cause some of our factories ship am
munition to the Allies, not stopping to
realize that if Germany were not rhut
off from the high seas she alo would
be our customer. The World's Work
estimates that we furnish from one
eighteenth to one-twentieth of one per-
cent only cf the ammunition used by -
the Allies, so that the German have
very little reason to hat u on thl
ground, Th point i that they do hat
ua-just bit less cordially than If they
wer actually at war with us.
Th prospect, w may suppo,
not lost upon th admlnlatretion that
It the United States remains neutral
utvler further provocation from Ger
many, it will aland aloof In Interna
tional regard at th close of th wr,
no matter how th war ahoukt snd.
Th III feeling of Franc and England
that we are not one with them will
hav become crystallised into animos
ity. To German dUlik will hav bee
added contempt of us that w a ere so
spineless and easy. Perhaps also th
prospect I not lost upon th adminis
tration that if we now become on
with th Allies they will protect us
later on from whatever designs J span
may hav upon as. Moreover, deeplt
th awful damage and perhaps signal
defeat that Germany would b able to
inflict upon us in dual combat, ah is
now in position to do us little hurt.
Calculations of this tort may sound
selfish and cold-blooded, but we'll b
bound that they are receiving attention
at this moment In high official circle.
Germany la doomed to ultimate de
feat W said so when th war start
ed, and its prosTisa has hut strength
ened our view. Despite her wonderful
fight; th odds are ton heavy against
her. W will say again that had Bis
marck been living and In power she
would never hav found herself In such
desperat plight, since he would hsve
awaited a time when Germany eouki
hav mad it plainer to the world that
she was more sinned against than sin
ning. There would be much more of
sympathy for th Fatherland wer it
not so manifest that she could if she
would hav avoided the war which has
brought such misery upon the whole of
Self-interest, then, would prompt the
United States to aid in the almost in
evitable defeat of Germany, since if it
continues neutral it is threatened with
political as well as geographical isola
tion. War with Germany is therefore
a probable development of the next
few weeks. It is certain to follow any
further loss of American lives through
German submarine activity. Uncle
Sam is infinitely patient, but knows
quite well that he haa almost reached
the point when his patience will b re
garded aa cowardice.'

Don't try to bully the world. It
does not psy. Whoever ontere the ring
for a rough and tumble fight with
public opinion Is pretty sure, eventu
ally, to be "knocked out." Society Is
a Brlacrus, and who would think of
encountering with a Single pair of

ter shake the multitudinous hand of
the giant, good nsturedly, than un-

to lean on the world, It Is Just sa well
to treat It dvllly. Shrewd men, who
understand their race, never seek a
quarrel with society.. They under
stand that It Is possible for an individ
ual to lead and quietly control a com
munity, but not to fight It down and
not to force It to their way of thinking
by means of narrow laws. If you do
sire to reform supposed or real evils
or disabuse your fellow men of their
prejudices, the surest way not to suc
ceed Is to resort to denunciation and
abuse. Kindness, conciliation and the
