as Belgium was. To keep the big bully, her neighbor,
ouiet, she violated her neutrality, helping the Hun in the

way of furnishing him provisions, and she is still doing
this. This is not a matter of choice but of compulsion.
She has the example of Belgium before her, and realizes
that the same fate may be her's unless she submits to the
embraces of the Hohenzollem beast. The trouble with
the small neutral countries is that none of them are big
enough to face the Hun and his ruthlessness. If they
could all agree and. strike together they could throw the
balance of power so overwhelmingly to the allies as to put
the kaiser and his infamous militarists, where they belong
out of the world. It is hardly probable they will do this,
but thev could do it and win. At the same time while at
the mercy of the kaiser, they are the safe-guards of his
empire. Switzerland, Holland and Denmark so long as

If the government shuts down on wooden ship build
ing, as it may do to considerable extent, it might be a good
move for the builders of the coast to launch a fleet of
wind-jammers. These could do a great business for the
next year or two in bringing foodstuffs, especially wheat,
from Australia and India. If the war keeps up another
year the wooden sailing ship would go a long ways toward
solving the shipping problem tor the racitic, and besides
they would pay for themselves in a trip or two. They
would be longer making the trip, but as they do not have
to carry coal would bring at least one half more cargo and
at less expense. A couple of hundred sailing vessels on
the Pacific just now would make prosperity get up and
An item yesterday was to the effect that the war chest
committee had under consideration a plan for providing
money for the next liberty loan. This was to assess every
person in the community a certain amount and when the
call was made ask him to put up the amount assessed to
him. The scheme would be fair enough no doubt, but it
is lost sight of that the liberty loan is a voluntary matter.
The United States could assess the amounts due front each
person, if it wanted to raise the money in the way of an
enforced loan. It can levy a tax and collect it, and if it is
necessary will no doubt do &. In the meanwhile so long
as it is a voluntary loan the element of tax gathering
should be kept out of it.
Contracts have been let for 29 more vessels aggre
gating more than 215,000 tons. Of these twelve are 9,600
ton steel freighters and ten of the same class but of only
9.400 tons. The ship'ping board in order to show that it
was not prejudiced and wanted to play fair, while arrang
ing for these 22 steel ships, also let contracts for three
wooden ships of 3,500 tons each which are to be built at
