THE GREAT NAVAL BATTLE
IT is loo early to comment intelligenth upon the naval
buttle in tlie North sea, but it seems evident that Brit
ish prestige on the high seas has received a severe jolt.
Tlie supposedly invincible fleet is no longer invincible
although the battle was not in any sense a decisive one.
It would appear, from their own account, that the Brit
ish battle cruiser squadron encountered the full German
fleet with disastrous results and thai when the main Brit
ish battleship fleet arrived the Germans retreated safely
to their base. If this is the case, the Germans evidently
caught the British napping.
In its first real battle the German fleet acquitted itself
well, showing that German efficiency is as thorough on
the sea as on land, rndoubtedly the German loss is much
greater than reported, but even so, the engagement will
have its moral effect in shattering British prestige.
Britain's part in the world conflict, as far as actual
fighting goes, has not been very brilliant. Whipped by
the Germans in Belgium, by the Turks at the Dardan
elles, forced to surrender to Turks in Mesopotamia, with
an immense army God knows where, but not fighting, and
now defeated by a brand-new inferior naval power near
home, it is small wonder the Germans proclaim the British
a decadent nation.
But it, takes defeat to make the British fight. In nearly
every conflict Britain's initial part is more or less inglor
ous. It usually takes a year of defeat and a year of prep
aration before the year of fighting arrives. But British
pluck and British courage winin the long run when op
portunity has developed leaders of capacity. The rank
and file are as brave as ever, but the caste system of select
ing officers from the decadent aristocracy provides bone
One thing the naval battle will do it will arouse
British pride and put peace out of question for a long"
lime, to come.

A POPULAR VICTORY
TTIIC confirmation of Louis I). Urandeis was a triumph
of public opinion a popular victory, forced by pub
lie sentiment. The delay in the confirmation, the long
disgraceful and disreputable effort to besmirch his reputa
tion are a reproach to the senate.
ICvery scandalmonger in the country was gravely lis
tened to at the hearings in the endeavor to dignify tittle
tattle, livery tory-minded member of the bur was permit
ted to air his prejudices. Kvery tainted corporation was
encouraged to sling mud. But the extended farce failed to
develop anything detrimental to the character, but, on the
contrary, much to the credit of Louis I). Brandeis.
Justice Brandeis' great sin consisted in having cham
pioned tlie under dog in the industrial struggle, lie had
appeared gratuitously for the people against plutocracy
menacing their welfare. The powerful enemies that he
made combined for his rejection in a campaign of slander,
iuueudo and detraction.
It has been well said that the supreme court needed
Mr. Brandeis far more than Mr. Brandeis needed a job on
the bench. It is well that the people have a champion on
the supreme bench.
