FIGURES TO TIHNK APOUT
THE Organization leaders are Bald to be
worried by the primary figures and to
grow more worried the longer they consider
them. That there Is ground for alarm In the
camp of the contractor-bosses Is evident
from a comparison of the primary results
this year with the primary results four years
ago. look at the figures for this year first.
Here they are:
Total registration 190.168
Total vote 185.000
Thomas B. Smith 121,664
George D. Porter 44,330
Sheldon Potter ...' 8,140
Combined Porter and Potter vote.. 62,470

George II. Earle. Jr. 106.4S5
William S. Vare 82.258

Rudolph Blankenburg 44,947
If 187,700 votes In tho primaries for the
dang candidates and 44,900 for the candidate
bf tho opposition meant the election of Ru
Holph Blankenburg in 1911, what does only

EUROPE IS USED TO DIG DEBTS
TUB American national debt is so small
the average citizen stands aghast at the
discovery that the British debt will soon
reach tho sum of 311,000,000,000, It does not
seem possible that tho interest on this vast
sum can ever be paid, to say nothing of
liquidating the principal.
But European financiers, who are accus
tomed to dealing with big debts, are not
shrinking from taking up the burden of pro
viding ways and moans for preserving the
Tho debt of the United States at the be
ginning of the Civil "War was only 360,000,000
and the national wealth was 315,000,000,000.
At the close of the war the debt had grown
to more than 32,000,000,000. It has now been
reduced until it Is only 31,000,000,000, and tho
national wealth has increased till It reaches
the enormous sum of 3160,000,000,000. Tho
Government owes only ono dollar out of every
3150 of the national wealth. France, how
ever, at tho beginning of tho present war
had a debt of 36.343,000,000 and a wealth of
only $50,000,000,000. That Is, the French Gov
ernment owed 36.34 out of every 350 owned
by the people. The wealth of Great Britain
and Ireland amounts to $80,000,000,000 and a
debt of $11,000,000,000 means that the Govern
ment has pledged for national defense 3U
out of every 380 owned by the people. . The
present war debt of the British is therefore
only a llttlo larger proportionately than the
peace debt of Francce.
If those nervous people who think that
Europe will not repay the loan of half a
billion or a billion which it is seeking here
will study these figures they may discover
that a burden which would seem intolerable
to us will rest on shoulders already calloused
by heavy loads and accustomed to bear
them. If thero Is any reason for declining
to advance to England and France the
money they need It does not He In the prob
ability of repudiation.
CANDIDATES, PASSIVE AND ACTIVE
WfllLB reminding the Interviewer that
he Is tho favorite son of Ohio, former
Senator Burton denies that he Is an active
candidate for tho presidency. "Passively I
may be regarded as a candidate," said he.
This means that his lightning rod Is up and
that he Is patiently waiting for It to strike.
Ellhu Root has denied that he is even
passively a candidate and Justice Huihes
has told his friends that he will not consent
to have his name used, but Victor Murdock
Is convinced that Colonel Roosevelt could be
persuaded to run If he were sure of election.
Then theie are Senator Cummins, who wants
It, and La Follette, who is eager for the
nomination. And Mr. Knox would not re
fuse It and Senator Weeks is willing, and
Colonel George Harvey, who thinks that he
Is some pumpkins as a prophet, put on his
robes about two years ago and announced
with great solemnity that Senator Borah
would be the raatu. But Colonel Harvey is
probably the only man who thinks he knows
what the Republican Convention will do next
THE NEW SPIRIT IN EUROPE
"rpHERE Is nothing easier than to proph-
JL coy," said Edmund Burke, "except to
be wrong when one prophesies."
There is, however, nothing more necessary
than foresight. It would be ruinous for this
country not to anticipate the end of the
Great War, not to prepare for the financial
and social cataclysm which that end may
bring. Dismissing for the moment tho In
volved financial problem, we .must consider
deeply the social changes which the course
of present events unmistakably indicates.
Germany is the highest example of mon
archical socialism; opposed to that system is
the highly socialized democracy of France.
In spirit England was almost as unsocial
as Russia, although in actual fact it had
a socialistic budget, with old-age pensions
and inheritance taxes and a general sug
gestion of paternalistic government. So the
chief belligerents stood at the beginning of
The fact which America must first under
stand Is that at a moment of crisis Ger
many needed to make no change. France
and England and Russia were compelled to
adopt the very methods they were fighting,
the socialized control of all Industry. Rail
roads were taken over by the English GoV
ernment the week war began, and it seems
to be only a question of time before all in
dustry will be governmentally operated.
What the industrial outcome of these
emergency measures will be cannot be said.
They may be modified or abandoned. Tho
social effect Is inevitable. America will have
to face, after the war, a Europe In which
the solidarity of the citizens will be com
plete. Win or lose, the Entente Powers will
be bound to a new Idea In government. Es
sentially that Idea is that the Individual
must give himself up to the State In order
that the State may give Itself up to the
This country, devoted to the highest type
of Individualism, unmoved by catastrophe,
may persist in its extreme opposition to that
new idea. It may, on the other hand, draw
frpm it a fresh Inspiration, combining a new
service with the older freedom. It should
be able to accomplish what Germany failed
to accomplish a. welding together of free
dom and unity, of Individual power and na

FORMERLY It was the Mediterranean that
was infested with pirates. Now It's the'

In flower in the Caribbean and the Medlterrn-f

On a reoent occasion, when 'the British
steamship Tal-On was en route from Honir
Kong to Canton, the officers were attacked
by a band of pirates who had boarded the
vessel with the two or three hundred Chinese
passengers. The pirates were well armed
and opened battle one night as the ship was
passing close to an Island which was their
frequent rendezvous. The white officers mado
a bravo stand on the bridge and beat off
their assailants. The passengers were or
dered by tho pirates to go to the bridge and
beg the officers to surrender. The passengers
who refused were shot down. The pirates
took possession of the engine room and
stopped the ship, then set fire to the vessel
beneath the bridge In an effort to dislodge
the officers. A strong wind oame up and
fanned the flames to fury, and so rapidly'
did the fire spread that pirates and passen
gers were forced to leap into the sea. The
officers were the last to abandon the ship.
Vessels attracted to the scene by the fire
picked up scores of struggling men and
women, Including many of the pirates. The
latter were taken ashore In chains. What
became of them afterward the account sayeth'
A Pot of Hoosler Gold
Speaking of pirates: In tho llttlo Indians
town of Richmond there's great excitement
these days over the treasure of Captain Kldd.
A colored seer and clairvoyant knows the lo
cation of a pot of gold. For a century the
treasure hunters have mistakenly given their
whole attention to the Atlantic coast, but the
truth Is, according to this woman, that de
serters from the captain's pirate ships stole
some of the tainted money vwhlch Kldd had,
burled and carried it Inland, burying it about
thirty miles from Richmond.
Speaking of treasure hunts: The reception
of Stevenson's story, "Treasure Island,"
reads like a fairy tale. Graham Balfour, in
his biography of the author (now published
In a one-volume edition) writes; "States
men and Judges and all sorts of staid and
sober men became boys once more, sitting
up long after bedtime to read their new
book. The story goes that JJi, Gladstone
got a glimpse of - It at Lord Rosebery's
house, and spent tho next day hunting over
London for a second-hand copy. Mr.
Andrew Lang spent over It several 'hours of
unmlngled bliss.' "This Is the kind of stuff
a fellow wants. I don't know, except 'Tom
Sawyer and the 'Odyssey,' that I ever liked
any romance so well."
Speaking of "Tom Sawyer," his best tale,
Mark Twain observed, "There comes a time
in every rightly constructed boy's life when
he has a raging desire to go somewhere and
dig for burled treasure." Tom's, apparently,
was a rightly constructed boy's life. He
planned for himself an entrancing career
"At the zenith of his fame, how he would
suddenly appear at the old village and stalk
Into church, brown and weather-beaten, In
his black velvet doublet and trunks, his
great Jack-boots, his crimson sash, his belt
bristling with horse-pistols, his crime-rusted
cutlass at his side, his slouch lrat -with wav
ing plumes, his black flag unfurled, with the
skull and cross-bones on It, and hear with
swelling ecstasy the whisperings. It's Tom
Sawyer, the Pirate I The Black Avenger of
the Spanish Main.' '
Tom and Huck Finn did go hunting for

"Oh, most anywhere."
"Why, Is it hid all around?"
"-o, indeed. It ain't. It's hid in mighty
parUcular places, Huck, sometimes on
islands, sometimes In rotten chests under the
limb of an old dead tree, JusP where the
shadow falls at midnight; but mostly under
the floor In ha'nted houses."
"Who hides it?"
"Why, robbers, of course. Who'd you
reckon, Sunday school sup'rintendents?"
"Don't they come after it?"
"No. they think they will, but they gener
ally forget the marks or else they die. Any

In another age than this Baron Reading
and his colleagues would have sought
the money they want by chasing Spanish
galleons or searching for burled gold, or, as
a Massachusettes Governor once did, salving
a sunken treasure ship. It has Just been
reported from Sunbury that a farmer of
that neighborhood has fished UP from a well
a bucket overflowing with doubloons and
silver pieces. The only passible objection
to this tale is the fact that the old bucket

Ben Franklin hod no use at all for tales of
pirate's gold. He lamented that bo many
Phlladelphlans of his .day were smitten with
"odd humour of dlgglnjr for money, through
a belief that much has beeft hidden by pirates
formerly frequenting the Schuylkill River."
In one of his dldactlo essays he wrote: "I

"WHY, IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO THINIt
DOES PREPAREDNESS MEAN WAR?
The Several Kinds of Militarism as Illustrated by Contemporary
History American Foreign Policy Builded. on Bluff.
Why France Got Out of Mexico
By WARREN BARTON BLAKE
MILITARY preparedness Is, first of all, a
relative term. Allowing for the limita
tions of numbers and national wealth, there
are no countries In Europe better pro
pared for war than Holland and Switzer
land. Holland has a war strength of 200,000
trained men. Switzerland has a war strength
of 260,000 trained men. For months now
something approaching their war strength
has been held under arms, at great cost
to those countries. Switzerland and Hol
land have thus stood ready to defend
their national self-respect and their national
territory against violation by any stronger
Power. To put it more accurately, these
forces have been mobilized to guarantee for
their oountries poaco Instead of war. Had
Holland been literally or practically un-
. armed it would have been an almost Irre
sistible temptation for Germany, and an even
greater one for Great Britain, to march
across her territory. Probably that would
have made a shambles of Holland In the
end, as Belgium has been made a shambles.
Switzerland Is In much the same case. The
mountain State borders on the war fronts
of three belligerent powers. But neither of
theso well-prepared countries, neither Hol
land nor Switzerland, has had to complain
of any more serious violation of her rights
than the occasional flight of a careless air
ship of some belligerent nation over her soil.
Then a protest has been made or perhaps
shots have been flred at tho airship. Inci
dentally, It is a long time since either Hol
land or Switzerland tas been at war. In
cidentally, too, both of these countries are
prosperous and well governed. In neither
has that form of militarism which spells na
tional preparedness brought In Its train
autocracy or a reactionary kind of govern
ment. Holland Is a constitutional monarchy.
Switzerland Is a republic a republic older
than the United States. These countries are,
in the loose sense of the word, "militarist."
But they are not, I believe, militarist In any
sense to which Mr, Ford can reasonably ob
ject. They haven't the German type of
militarism, the type of militarism which
crowds women off the street Into the gutter,
the type of militarism which maintains an
obsolete and Irresponsible dynasty and Is dis
graced by Zabern affairs and scandals, pub
lic and private. The national policy to which
Swiss or Dutch militarism lends vigor is not,
in fine, a policy of aggression. Mr. Ford,
do you mean to spend your million dollars,
or your ten millions, combating the Prussian
form of militarism, or the development of
such latent force as may enable the United
States to resist, If need be, either the 'Prus
sian militarism or any other hostile force?
It makes so gravo a difference. In the first
case, ypu are merely wasting your money;
the Prussian spirit can never be evoked" Irt
A LESSON IN PROTECTION
Germany Is Strong Bepnuso She Has
Spent Her Money at Home
Every paper that can print anything worth
reading has something to say about the world's
But one of the war's greatest lessons we do
not remember seeing mentioned anywhere
Germany, as a result of her almost inhuman,
almost uncanny, almost altogether Incompre
hensible efficiency, Is making all her own war
supplies, all her own munitions of every sort
tier autotrucks, her steel supplies. Is feedjng
her own country, Is making and preparing all
needful chemicals and hospital supplies.
And this means that, Irrespective of the ex

her foreign exchange epreclat4. UWH HAS

Individualists America. In the second case,
you are planning but no, I won't apply that
word to Mr. Ford.
Builded on Bluff '
Now, the New Testament contains a
parable In It concerning a houso built upon
a rock and another houso built upon the
sand. It has nothing to say, however, about
houses built upon a bluff. Yet, American
foreign policy since the Civil War has been
founded upon bluff. Julian Street tells In
Collier's of the conversation aij American
army officer once heard when he was attend
ing the French army maneuvers In Touralne
In 190S. Ono day at luncheon the talk among
the French officers turned to Mexico, where,
as it happened, the general seated at the
head of the table had served as lieutenant
during1 the French occupation of J864-5 i.
"General," said a young staff officer,' "there
Is one point in French history on which I
have nover been clear: Why did our army
get out of Mexico In such a hurry?"
The general laughed and pointed to tho
young officer In the uniform of the United
"Because," he good naturedly explained,
"there were then in the United States more
than a million men wearing a (blue uniform
and trained through the Civil War, and they
asked us to get out!"
I don't vouch for the Incident but accord
ing to Mr. Street, that was the only period
lnour history when we were really prepared
to fight and, as you see, we didn't have to
do It. '
That our bluff has never beon called, In
spite of the Venezuelan controversies (that
twice brought us faco to face with war,
once with Germany and once with Britain),
in spite of John Hay's stand for the "Open
Door" in China, in snlte of our Colonial ad
ventures. In spite of our diplomatic diffi
culties with Japan, on account of exclusion
laws and California grievances that our
bluff has never been called Is due less to
the guardianship of some devoted angel than
to a combination of lucky circumstances, not
the least of which has been tha fact that
the Monroe Doctrine has admirably suited
the policy of the British Empire, which has
needed no new colonies for glory or expan
sion, and has been exceedingly glad that
there was no prospect of Germany obtaining
large foreign colonies ,in jthe now world,,
Clausewltz said; "War is only a continu
ation by other means, of national policy."
If this be true, we must either face the pos
sibility of war and adopt tho most Intelli
gent measures of insurance against it, or
we must give up the Idea of having national
policies. Would It bo too much to say that
the negation of Clausewltz's dictum Is
equivalent to abandoning the principle of
aging her manufacturers to go abroad for
their purchases of all kinds the British Gov

ner as a frozen wilderness. But with a (90,090,?
000 railroad pushing Into tho interior it will notf
be long before tho tourists, in 10,000 lots, will baj
seeing for tnemseivcs. uaitimore American.
T. R. calls names as he declaims
For everlasting war.
And Bryan coos the while he rues
J.10 names kajiio uc&uio. ;j
T. R. Is out for battle, and William Jl fori
neace. I .
The country's really lucky that they do noB
For T. R,'s roar that we shed gore,
And shed It p. d. q.,
Is offset by BUI Bryan's cry,
"A wicked thing to dol"
No word or act should be allowed one of thlil
twain to balk.
For each drowns out the other by his oeaw?
less flow of talk. W. A. MoO.
