COL. BRYAN'S WAR SPILT
It Paid in Advance
TRUTH ABOUT THE ARMS
If the German government and the
German newspapers would tell the
German people the truth about the
sale of war supplies, there wouldn't
be such resentment against Americans
as there is today.
The truth isn't merely that inter-
national law and practice have always
sanctioned the sale of arms and am-
munition by neutrals to belligerents.
It isn't merely that it is necessary
for non.military nations like ours to
preserve this right for the sake of
their own safety, so that they may be
able to obtain arms for themselves in
case they should be attacked unex-
pectedly by a well prepared nation.
It isn't merely that th,e German gov.
eminent has always recognized this
principle, and does not now venture to
call the American practice illegal.
The truth is that Germany herself has
uniformly practiced the very thing
that the Germans now condemn.
It was the Germans—that is to say
the Krupps, the great manufacturers
of arms and ammunition at Essen—
who armed Russia in her .war with
Japan. It was the Germans who sold
Great Britain the vast quantities of
munitions required to put down the
South African rebellion, even while
Germany was professing the strong-
set sympathy with the Boers. It was
the Germans who sold Spain a good
■hare of the ammunition she used
against us in our Spanish war. it
was the Germans who provided euns
rifles, shells and cartridges lor tue
Turks in the recent war af the Balk.
an states for real freedom- and Ger-
many even provided gunnar-s to fire
the guns. It was the Germans who
shipped rifles and cartridges into
Mexico last year, in disregard of our
embargo, to use aeainst our soldiers
and marines at Vera Cruz, when war
with Mexico seemed inevitable.
For half a century Germany has
been the armament factory of Europe.
The great neutral German munitions
industry—which was involved in grave
political scandals only last year has
fostered and thrived on foreign wars
no less than on domestic militiarism
And there is this difference between
the German and the American i rac.
tice, which if either is to be condemn-
ed makes the former more flagrant
All the American war supplies sold
to belligerents are sold by private
firms, with which our government has
no official or business connection, and
over 'which it has not even any right
of control or supervision. All the
German guns and ammunition sold to The E(Jen Musee of New York ,g
belligerents have been sold by a firm; about to close its doors. Two reasons
which the German government ba-j are given b>. the management: In.
made a monopoly, with which th, j crease of overhead expenses, and thc
Mr. Bryan's recent action recalls the
fact he hasn't always been so pacific
in principle. His peace propaganda
has been a matter of growth. Duritag
the Spanish war he was almost as
belligerent as Theodore Roosevelt
Both men, it will be recalled, won
their titles of 'colonel" in that con.
test. \\ hile Roosevelt was recruiting
his Rough Riders, Bryan was raising
a regiment of Nebraskans. He plead
ed for permission to enlist as a pri-
vate. When he was given a commis
sion as colonel of the Third Nebraska
regiment, he worked and studied hard
to fit himself for the command. In
the detention camp lie fretted and
complained like any other eager offi.
cer because he wasn't ordered to the
front. It was with real regret that
Col. Bryan was finally mustered out
without seeing actual service.
Nobody questions that Mr. Bryan
has more than the average man
quantity of 'fighting blood". That lit
chooses at this time to fight what he
conceives to be the cause of peaco
no evidence that he would bo iin ob-
structionist if the nation, !n spite of
its pacific desires, should become in-
volved in war.
When it came to a real test, with
the life and honor of America at stake,
we should probably see Col. Bryan as
ready to buckle on a sword and fight
for the country as he was in 1S9.8. It
is only in a time of uncertainty like
this that honest Americans split.
A crisis brings them together again.
The history of Sir Edward Carson, re.
cently head of the Ulster revolution,
ists and now attorney general of Great
Britain, shows how in free notions,
the malcontest of yesterday may be-
come the faithful and trusted public
servant of tomorrow.
MODEST BIG BU8INESS
Much has been said lately"about the
greatness of the German coal tar dye
industry since the shortage of dyes
began to menace many American
manufactures. It is great, undoubt-
edly; It is said to be the biggest in
dustry in Germany, \ ith the excep
tion of the wir tmmiti ns business ut
Essen; and yet it is a small matter
when judged by American standards.
For favorable comparison, we need
not go to the Steel Trust or the meat,
oil or tobacco industry, or any other
of our recognized industrial giants.
One Miain of five and ten cent stores
in this country did $11,000,000 more
business in one year, 1913, than the
entire export business, of the German
aniline dye factories. One American
mail order house sold a greater vol.
ume of goods in the same year than
the total ouput of all the German dye-
stuff plants. One American kodak com.
pany pnid $3,000,000 more dividends
than the entire German dye industry.
One American automobile company,
with a single standard product, does
more business than all the German
color makers with their 1200 pro.
ducts, pays three times the wages and
earns four times their profits.
The Germans are supposed to leat,
the world in industrial efficiency, i'a'y-
be they do. But still, we manage to
worry along and do quite a littlt
business in our modest way.

SALUTING THE FLAG.
Possibly one of the strongest points
in Mr. Bryan's statement cf Thurs.
day night is contained in the follow,
"If I correctly interpret the note to
Germany it conforms to the standards
of the old system rather than to the
rules of the new and i cheerfully ad-
mit that it is abundantly supposed by
precedents — precedent written in uge.
characters of Wood u^ion almost every) There
page of human nistory Austria fur-
nishes the most r."?ent precedent; it
it was Austria's firmness that dictated
the ultimatum against Serbia, which
set the world at war. Every ruler now
participating in this unparalleled con-
flict has proclaimed his desire for
peace and denied responsibility for
the war and it is only charitable ihet
we should credit all of it, according to
the rules of the old system. They
believe that firmness would give the
best assurance of the maintenance of
peace and faithfully following preced-
ent they went so near the fire that
they were, one after another, sucked
into the contest. Never before have
the frightful follies of this fatal sys.
tem been so clearly revealed as now."
MOVIES AND WAX.
"Why is it" asks a reader, "that
the American public is so indifferent
when the flag is passing by? Why
are heads not bared, as in other coun-
tries Almost any parade, especially
a military parade, shows that the pub-
lic is not appreciative of its own Stars
and Stripes. Aren't our people pa.
triotic? Are they actuated by com.
merciallsm alone? Why don't Amerl.
cans salute the flag?" * 1
It's unfortunately true that when the
Stars and Stripes are displayed in
public they are not treated with the
respect that most other nations show
their flag. But it surely isn't be-
cause our flag has been cheapened by
too much familiarity ana too general

is no other country where
every man who owns a little gasoline
boat is so prone to deck it, fore and
aft, with big flags. There is no other
country where occupants of summer
cottages think it necessary' to rear
flagstaffs in the yard and fly the
national colors regularly. Ti*ere is
no other country where the symbol of
nationality is flaunted at all times
and places, regardless of taste or prop,
There is such a thing as having
too much reverence for the flag to
use it lightly, as a mere ornament, or
display it as an advertisement t f pa-
triotism that should need no adver.
tising. Such reverence desenes to be
cultivated. When our people stop
cheapening the flag by indiscriminate
private use, it will command more

that said belligerent has the needful

Most certainly the United States
has sold a much larger quantity to
the allies during the present war than
to Germany and Austria but that was
only due to the fact that, in the first
place, the allies represent more buy.

Twenty-five years ago tonight some
17,000 New Yorkers filled Madison
Square Garden for the formal opening
of the ''world's largest place
amusement.'' A gorgeous spectacle,
with Edouard Strauss and his famous
orchestra, was the initial attraction.
Since that time the big amphitheatre
has been the home of a wide variety
of attractions, ranging from the fash-
ionable horse show and the dazzling
circus performances to exhibitions of
prize cats and the annual six day bike
races. At present the Garden is given
over ttr the "movies," and as usual the
show is the biggest affair of its kind
in the world. At the time of its open-
ing, as at present, the big structure
includes a theatre as well as the mam.
