Aftermath Of The War
TRYING to make sense out of the news from China is
an almost impossible job. Battle, murder and sud
den death seem to have been let loose once more on a
wholesale scale, with the city of Changsha coming in for
the most attention; but what it is about, which faction
la which, and what the upshot is likely to be are Ques
tions that cannot easily be answered.
The one thing that stands out is that China's long
period of turmoil is nowhere near an end. A few years
ago the emergence of the Nationalist party made it look
as if some sort of order would be maintained. Now the
situation looks just as bad as ever, and the one safe bet
is thpt there will be a great deal more violence and
bloodshed before China gets a rest. .
Changsha was looted by an army said to be under
"red" control. At this distance its leaders look very
much like ordinary bandits; they act like them, whether
they are inspired by a desire for money or by a yen for
communism, and it is very hard to find any definite set
of principles back of any of the revolutionary move
ments in that country.
That, of course, is what makes the whole business so
discouraging. Really, though, the mess isn't quite as
puzzling as it seems.
In a general way, it is probably true that China,
along with most of the rest of the orient, is still liqui
dating the World War. That final catastrophe brought
on by the militaristic habits of imperial-minded white
men was an even greater cataclysm than we usually
suppose. Its reverberations have not died away yet, and
it will be a long time until they do.
The World War was a most powerful ferment. It
not only changed the map of Europe; it loosed on the
world a flood of new ideas and new movements, and
they are working powerfully. It brought Bolshevism to
the surface, and the Bolshevist adoubtedly is at least
partly responsible for China's trouble. It filled India
with a desire for freedom, as England is discovering to
her dismay. From the Nile to the Yellow Sea it stirred
men up, broke down old customs and routines and de
posited a heritage of turbo lence and uprest
What the final solution will be no man can say. We
can understand things better, however, if we recognize
the fact that the trouble in the orient today is largely
an outgrowth of the war. It will be a long, long time
before the explosion that was touched off 16 years ago
stops re-echoing.
Fact for today: The Scotch are most eagerly sought
as life guards because they are such a saving people.
A man ing in Woolwich, England, has made his
own coffin and sleeps in it to be sure it fits. There's a
fellow who likes his bier.
There's no reason to believe that the Washington
boy who made a violin from 2500 matches was trying
to make light of music
During his campaign, a candidate in Arkansas gave
out sandwiches which poisoned 60 persons. The guess
is they were filled with boloney.
British police are said to be puzzled by the unusually
large number of paintings stolen this year. So it seems
even Britain is not above an oil scandal..
Farmers in an Illinois town reported that potatoes
they dug during the hot spell had been baked by the
sun. After such a burn, of course, the skin peeled itself.
EDITORIALS
FROM OVER THE NATION
ARMING CRIMINALS
Chicago Tribune: We think
action should be takes to estab
lish the criminal liability of in
dividuals who sell lethal weapons
In circumstances which indicate
that the buyer Intends to do vio
lence. An Individual who sells
machine gun or any ol several
kinds of deadly weapons to per
sons known to be o( auspicious or
criminal character Is morally
guilty of complicity In their law
lessness, and we believe tha law
would and should take cognis
ance of and furnish such com
plicity. Law-abiding citizens do
not need machine guns, and
while any citizen of respectable
reputation should . be permitted
to acquire a gun or revolver to
tie kept at home for the pro
tection of himself and family, or
even to carry It In certain cir
cumstances he can prove his re
sponsibility to the seller of such
weapons. But there Is nothing
mora scandalous and Inexcusable
In our crime situation than the
sale of deadly weapons, not only
to buyers who nay be unknown
to the seller but also to buyers
whom the seller must be as
sumed to know to be suspicious
or even notorious Individuals.
When, for example, a seller of
firearms sells a deadly weapon
to be delivered to some one on
an "L" platftorm, the seller
knows be Is arming some one for
some criminal purpose. When
he sells macblns guns by the
wholesale to parties not known
to him to ba law-abiding he is
morally guilty, and we think any
honest jury would find him
legally guilty and would be sus
tained by a court of review. If
this kind of merchandising Is not
criminal under the law as it Is,
the law should be amended.
There Is a clear distinction which
can be established In court be
tween merchanst of sparing
goods who have a reputable
clientele and merchants who pur
vey deadly weapons In circum
stances that are suspicious or
plainly Incompatible with lawful
Intent. The evil of Irresponsible
distribution of deadly weapons
needs prompt and drastls correc
tion. ' -,
