"PIKERS" IN THOSE DAYS
SFBAKBR HEED boasted that this was a
blllton-dollar oountry, but In giving pub
licity to the Idea he scarcely expected a com
mittee of gentlemen from Europo to take ad
vantage of the fact by coming over and undertaking-
to borrow the amount.
A few years ago a million dollars woa an
enormous sum. We apeak of It almost with
contempt now. We have paused from thou
sands to millions and to billions. Two '"cen
turies ago many Englishmen argued that
their national debt was too vast ever to bo
paid and that sure bankruptcy was nhea1.
That woa before the Napoleonic wars were
financed. Yes, they were "pikers" In thoae
"Lend me a billion," la the measure of the
world's Increase In wealth since the advent
of machinery. The world staggered along bo
fore on an agricultural basis. When man
kind learned to change raw materials Into
flntshea. produots by means of machinery
wealth was multiplied by a thousand. The
cost of living went up also. The yearly
budget of one great city now is as great as
the entire national expenditure was before
the Civil War. A alnglo dreadnought costs
as much as a whole war used to cost. An
artillery engagement will wlpo out a million
What's a billion, anyway? Within a few
months the Allies may be back wanting to
borrow two, and It would not be beyond the
resources of this country to provide It.

4!used the thinking of tho License Court when
It closed a notorious place near the West
The distinction between a disorderly resort
and a respectable hotel or a decently con
ducted Baloon Is so clear that thero never
need be any confusion in tho mind of a man
who wishes to bo fair. The difference does
not consist In the presence or the absence of
music or in the parade of paid performers
among the tables or on a place cleared for
them in a dining room, or tho absence of
such parade. If the, primary purpose of a
place Is to cater to tho vicious it should be
closed, whether It attracts patrons' by muslo
and cabaret shows or not.
The stupidest delectlve on the police force
has Intelligence enough to make the distinc
tion between legitimate hotels and saloons
and those that ought to be closed, for vice
obtrudes itself so conspicuously that It can
never bo mistaken for virtue.
NOW that the Rev. Dr. Newell Dwight
Hlllls, one of the best known clergymen
In the country, lias publicly confessed that
he made a mistake when He began to devote
his attention to accumulating a fortune by
speculation of one kind or another, the rest
of us can agree with him. We can go aa
far aa he went In his remarkable confession
In his pulpit, and say that the first business
of a minister Is to preach the gospel, and to
preach It and live It with all his might.
There Is nothing new In this. The sur
prising thing about It Is that Doctor Hlllls
had to learn It In the bitter school of ex
perience. He was not Ignorant of that old
proverb In which Is concentrated the com
aon sense of many oenturles, namely that
tho shoemaker should stick to his last. The
trouble with him and all others like him

THE PHOENIX DUMA
TnE proroguing of the Duma by the Czar
and the arrest of eighteen Social Demo
eratlo representatives, among thom that
dauntless fighter for liberty, Tchechidxe, Is
unquestionably a great disappointment to
those who saw in Russia's alliance with the
politically Democratic France and England a
step forward toward the democratization of
the vast Slav empire.
But to those who are Intimately acquainted
w4th conditions In the Czar's domains and
-th deep social disturbance in tho minds of
the peeple as a result of the war, the fate of

EVERY LINK MUST BE STRONG
NATIONAL defense can be effected only
by a long chain, the strength of which
Is no greater than Its weakest part.
Russia has been driven back on Its west
ern front because its railroads broke down.
The reports from Potrograd announce that
tralnload after tralnload of ammunition was
held up on tho railroads because tho locomo
tives wore not equal to tho task put on
them. Russia had the soldiers and it had tho
ammunition, but It did not have the means
of getting the two together in the right
place at the right time.
The British have the soldiers and they
have adequate means of transportation, but
they have not had ammunition when it was
needed. By stupid blundering the munition
workers were taken from the factories and
Bent to the front at the beginning of the
war. The failure on the supply side of na
tional defense brought about a Cabinet crisis
last May. The British think that they can
muddle through somehow. But their blun
ders are not cheering to any one but their en
emies. They ought to be Instructive to every
American who thinks that It Is possible to
improvise efficiency in a profession In whloh
success depends on the most exact atten
tion to details. The neglect of one link in
the long chain destroys the value of all the
rest, a common, trite and obvious saying,
but nevertheless o true that it has to be
said time after time lest It be forgotten.

THE VARIED SPHERE
Glimpses of Men and Places That
Figure in tho News Romantic
Career of Baron Reading:, Head
of Allies' Loan Commission
By LUKE GUARDIAN
THE man who heads the Anglo-French
Commission on Borrowing Money In
America Is tho first Lord Chief Justice of
England to wear a monocle. Of courso, that
la ono of his least distinctions, and so Is
the fact that he la
ono of the beat

the Intimate friends
of the late King Ed
ward, and used to
play bridge whist
with that monarch.
In Jest tho King
once remarked, "I
like to play with
Isaacs, because ho'
doesn't know any
mora about tho
game than I do."
Ono might nat
urally assume, how
over, that Rufus

Heading that is known a good deal about
tho flnnncial game. Ills beginnings In busi
ness were not at all promising, for after his
parents had provided him with enough cnpl
tal to secure a place on tho stock oxchango
he managed to bring himself face to face
with financial rultj at tho ago of 26. But
slnco that tlmo Mr. Isaacs has fared better.
Previous to that tlmo ho had some Interest
ing adventures that ought to bo mentioned
for tho soke of the romance which pcoplo
llko to find In tho lives of great men.
His parents were wealthy, but tho boy
had read so many stories of the sea that ho
ran away from home and shipped aboard a
vessel bound for Rio de Janeiro. Ho visited
many foreign ports In the, next few months.
Ho soon tired of the llfo of a common sailor,
however, and returned to England. He had
already begun his education at tho Uni
versity College School nnd had studied In
Brussels and Hanover. His family now tried
to persuade him to finish at Cambridge
University, but na he was anxious to start
on a business career, his father gave him tho
money which the young man quickly lost
And then tho future Chief Justice mot on
American girl. Miss Alice Smith Cohen, who
fired his ambition anew. Sho urged him to
study law. They became engaged nnd tho
couple spent their evenings pprlng over legal
tomes. After a year of study Isaacs was ablo
to pass the bar examinations. A little later
ho became a full-fledged lawyer. His mar
rlago to the American girl followed.
Isaacs speedily won a great reputation as
an expert in commercial law nnd bankruptcy
cases, and many were tho business tangles
that he unravolod. His "head for business"
was now proven. Ho entered Parliament and
rapidly rose from one high office to anothor,
though the Rquabble over Marconi shares
threatened to end hla brilliant political
career. The Investigating commission, how
ever, exonerated both Isaacs and Lloyd
Qeorge, and It was not long afterward that
Isaacs was elevated to the highest position
to which a British lawyer can aspire.
He Is the first Jew ever to become Lord
Chief Justice. Ho is 65 years old and receives
a salary of 840,000 a year. Ho has a life
tenure, but can retiro any timo ho pleases
on a pension of two-thirds his annual salary.
Munitioning the Allies
The morality of "munitioning" the Allies
with funds Is not so very different from tho
morality of "munitioning" them with other
goods, and there can be no doubt about tho
morality in either case. Secretary Lansing,
In his note to Austria-Hungary, showed the
close relation of tho moral and the legal as
pect of the situation which he so clearly il
luminated. As to governmental Interfer
ence, In neutral countries, with tho trade of
citizens in contraband of war, it Is inter
esting to cite the words of two of tho ablest
Jurists of Amorlcan history.
Chancellor Kont, in his famous Commen
taries, Vol. 1, page 142, says: "It was con
tended on the part of the French nation In
1796 that neutral governments were bound
to restrain their subjects from selling or ex
porting articles contraband of war to the
belligerent Powers. It was successfully
shown on tho part of the United States that
neutrals may lawfully sell, at home, to a
belligerent purchaser, or carry, themapiv.
to belligerent Powers contraband articles,
subject to the right of seizure In transition.
The right has since been explicitly declared
by the Judicial authorities of this country."
Speaking for the Supreme Court of the
United States, Justice Story, perhaps the
ablest Jurist the United States haa pro
duced, certainly one of tho most accurate

case of the Santiselma Trinidad, 7 Wheaton.

In the law of nations which forbids our citi
zens from sending armed vessels, aa well as
munitions of war, to foreign porta for sale.
It Is a commercial adventure which no na
tlon la bound to prohibit! and which only
exposes tho persons engaged In It to the pen
alty of confiscation."

THE RESPECTABILITY OF PIRACY
Charges Against British Prize Courts Cannot Stand After Con
sideration of the Glorious History of the Profession
Honored by. Captain Kidd and "Blackbeard"
"piRATESI" shout the meat packers to the
JT British. And "Pirates!" shout the Tou
tophobes. It is on old name, older than
"freebooter" or "filibuster" or "buccaneer."
Piracy has been known since the days of
Homer. Tho word, Indeed, Is Greek via the
Latin. An attempt, unconscious, perhaps,
has lately been made to limit the term to In
ternational law and to leave to the other
words the highly Important function of sug
gesting tho romance In tho splendid-Bounding
exploits of Captain Kldd and Morgan and
Drake and Hawkins and Bonnet and Jean
Lafltte. That's quite wrong, but, after all,
there's a definite historical distinction which
sets the buccaneers In a class by themselves.
The title Is applied to those daring seamen
and fighters who made llfo miserable for the
Spanish settlers In the West Indies in the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Their
depredations were Inspired partly by tho re
ligious conflicts of the time, but principally
by English and French objection to the fool
ish pretensions of tho Spaniards to the trade
of their own West Indies. A state of mari
time warfare grew up between Spain and the
French and English traders, who styled
themselves "tho brethren of the coast." The
Island of Tortuga was tho headquarters of
tho brethren, and here they established mag
azines for tho lodgment of goods. Hither
they repaired In times of danger.
Driers of Beef
Tho Spaniards richly deserved all tho trou
ble that tho buccaneers gave them. They
had killed off so many of 'the natives of
Hlspanlola that at this time the Island was
overrun with wild cattle, and It was this fact
that led to the coming of the buccaneers.
How the name "buccaneers" originated Is
told in a curious little book written by James
Burney, a brother of Fanny Burney, and
published a century ago. The Corlbbe In
dians, so he tells us, had a way of curing
meat on a hurdle, which they called a "bar
becu." We have the word "barbecu," by the
way, from these Indians. Under the hurdle
a slow fire burned. When cured the meat
was called "boucan." This word the Indians
borrowed from the French, but the French
and English borrowed from the Indians their
mode of curing meat, and hence thoy came
to be known as "boucaniers" that is, "driers
of beef." They ha4 established in Hlspanlola.
despite Spanish opposition, a flourishing bus),
ness In chasing wild cattle, curing the meat
and drying the skins. "Many of the French
hunters," says Burney, "were nativea of Nor
mandy, and it became proverbial in some of
the seaports of Normandy to aay of a smoky
house, 'C'est un vral Boucan.' The Frenoh
buccaneers and adventurers were also called
"flUbustlers." Tho word flllbustler Is merely
the Frenoh mariner's mode of pronouncing
the English word "freebooter."
But these distinctions, historical and ter
mlnologloal what do they matter? A pirate's
For a that and a' that.
Then ho for a pirate's life!
For piracy la eminently reapeotahle. It Is
true that German submarines do not fly .the
black flag with the skull and cross-hones (a
flag would get wet on a submarine); but.the
rrfan who sank the Lusltanla was awarded
special honors by tho Kaiser. The British
prize courts, too, have recently set the seal
of respectability on piracy. One common form
of piracy, as everybody knows, la called "tho
freedom of the seas." It Is sanctioned by in
ternational law and final approval In particu
lar cases always rests with the Judges of his
Majesty's prize courts. But plraoy waa in
good odor In earlier tlmea, for the world does
not owe all lta progress to the present age.
The buccaneers of whom we have Just been
speaking operated with the tacit and some
times the explicit consent of the French and
Some Illustrious Pirates
It Is pleasant to think that the first of the
pirates of the New World waa no less a per.
sonage than Christopher Columbus, His mo
tlves and actions on his famous voyage of
1492 were Innocent enough, verily they were
highly praiseworthy, but how much more

mining terrible atrocities and had him sent

But so many other great men of the world's
history have lost their paragonlo reputations
that wo need not now wasto time trying to
prove that Columbus was the victim of a
dreadful error of Judgment on tho part of
Then there was Francis Drake! Ho waa a
pirate puro and Blmple. Queen Elizabeth
knighted him for piracy. Monorchs were no
bumpkins event at that early dato. He pil
laged the rich Spanish possessions In Amer
ica, came back to England loaded with booty,
capturing a Spanish treasure ship on the
way home, then started off again for Amer
ica, attacked towns, carried off treasure and
captured merchant vessels, until he was
afraid to return to England tho way he
came. That was how ho happened to call
around the world, gathering tho spoils of
piracy as he went. And when ho did reach
London, the Queen, the Ministers, the cour
tiers, the citizens and Drake and all his crew
shared in the, plunder taken from the Span
lards four million dollars' worth of It. King
Philip protested against the outrages that
Drake had committed. So good Queen Bess
knighted the freebooter and Drake thereafter
was Sir Francis;
It would be easy to go on and mention
many other names that have shed lustre on
the practice of piracy that of Peter tho
Great, for instance. It can bo easily shown,
moreover, that piracy began in legitimate
trade and commerce. Perhaps that is tho
reason why some of our prominent captains
of Industry and commerce of today are called
"buccaneers" and "pirates."
Captain Kidd Vindicated
Where, one may rightly ask, Is the igno
miny of such an entitlement? We have
wronged the reputation of many an esti
mable gontloman, Including Captain Kldd.
Up spoaks Mr. Ralph D. Paine to set the mat
ter right for the much-raaligned captain.
"uumcu lo inramy undeserved, his
name reddened with crimes ho never com
mitted, and made wildly romantic by tales
of treasure which he did not bury. Captain
William Kldd is fairly entitled to the sym
pathy of posterity and the apologies of all
the ballad-makera and alleged historians
Tv? ttVJ? obBOUred ta A8 n a cloud of
fable." Read further: "Fate has played the
strangest tricks imaginable with the memory
of this seventeenth century seafarer who
never cut a throat or made a victim walk the
plank, who was no more than a third or
fourth rate pirate in the era when this Inter,
estlng profession was In lta heyday, and who
was hanged at Execution Dook for the exces.
Blvely unromantlo crime of cracking the skull
of hla gunner with a wooden bucket"
Nothing more than a vindication of Captain
Kldd l8 needed to remove the stain from tte
fair nam. of plraoy. Everjr professloa. IU
