TRENTON, Sept. 23. Slow returns be

primary election Indicate that practically
all of the present Democratic congres
sional delegation of Wilson men have
been renominated. Bitter local fighting
In several counties of the State served
to swell tho total vote cast to fair pro
portions. In Hudson County, where Governor
Fielder's forces were arrayed against
those of Naval Olllcer Wlttpcnn In the
Democratic primary, the result seems to
be in doubt. The State leadership hinges
upon tho outcome.
No comparative figures of tho total
votes of the parties can be given nt
this time, although It Is known that the
Progressive vote was very light yester
day. This Is partly ascribed to the fact
that this party was without the contents
which served to bring out the Repub
licans nnd Dcmocrnts nnd to tho further
fact that the Progressives In some cascB
had fused with the Democrats.

NEW YORK, Sept. 21-In the current

appearance totlny, Theodore Rooeevelt,
who uas formerly a contributing editor,
cIIscussph the Europenn conflacratlon In
an article entitled:
"The world war; Its tragedies and Its
Colonel Roosevelt records the claims
and counter claims of the belligerent
Powers nnd expresses profound gratitude
that the United States, of all the great
civilized natrons, "stands unshaken by
the present world-wide war."
In part the article says:
"Peace which leaves Belgium's wrongs
unredressed and which docs not have
any effect agnlnst a recurrence such as
those from which she has suffered, would
not be real peace.'
On the attitude of the United Stales,
Colonel Roosevelt writes!
"What action our Govrrnment can and
will take I know not. It has been an
nounced that no action can bo taken
that will Interfere with out neutrality. It
Is certainly eminently desirable that we
should remain entirely neutral, and noth
ing but urgent need would warrant from
our neutrality nnd taking Hides one way
or the othed. Our first duty Is to hold
ourselves ready to do whatever the
changing circumstances demand, In order
to protect our own Interests In the pres
ent and In the future; although for my
part I di-slre to add to this statement
the proviso that undpr no circumstances
must we do anything dishonorable, espe
cially toward unoffending weaker nations.
"Neutrality may be of prime neces
sity In order to prnerve our own In

In able at such a tlmo to be the medium
for bringing peace It Is more likely to

But we pay the penalty for this action

possibly for others In the future by for
felting our right to do anything on be

by refusal to da anything to aid urtoeffnd
Itig weak powers which are dragged Into
the gulf of bloodshed and, misery through
no fault of their own. It would be folly
for us to Jump Into the gulf ourselves to
no good purpose; and vury pfobably noth
ing that we could hnvo done would have
Discussing the cause and provocations,
which led to tho war, Colonel Roosevelt
recites the claims and counter claims of
each of the warring nations. Russia, he
thinks, could not havo done otherwise
than to aid Servla, because or the racial
ties existing between them. Germany was
led on by her close alliance to Austria
Hungary. Ffrance was led on to support
Russia and "when once Belgium was In
vaded every circumstance of national
honor forced England to act as she did."
"At this moment, for Instance, Japan
has declared war against Germany. She
has paid icrupulotis regard to our own
rights nnd feelings In the matter. The
contention that din Is acting in a spirit
of mpre disinterested altruism need not
be considered. She bellevs that sh has
wrongs to redress and strong national
Interests to presprve. Nino years ago
Germany Joined with Russia to check
Japan's progress after her victorious war
with China, and elnce then Itself built up
a Gcrmnn colonial possession on Japanese
soil. Doubtless Japan never for one mo
ment has forgotten this act of Germany."
