HE SITKEMK QUESTION.
(SO. Louis Globe-Democrat)
"What la to bo our situation when
tho great war ends, and how aro wo
to meet It? That Is tho supremo
question before the American people,
Peaco may or may not bo preserved,
war may or may not como, tho Adam
son law may or may not bo sustained,
Hughes may or may not bo elooted,
but ono thing is absolutely certain:
Tho war will como to nn end. And
that ending will put the United Statos
In greater economic peril than would
a war. Tho European war has tre
mendously enriched this country ns a
whole. It has given us a balance of
trado ?cconcd in billions, it has
brought Into our coffers a largp sham
of tho world's gold', It has kopt many
of our factories running day and night
and created nn unprecedented domund
for labor. But ovory ono of lntolll
gonco realizes that this is an nbnor
mal stato of affairs dependent wholly
upon a continuanco of tho war, and
cortaln to drop to normal or subnor
mal conditions when tho war onds,
That nnclont democratic organ, tho
St. Louis Republic, Inadvortcntly said
tho other day:
"Tho general effect of tho roncwed
' submnrlno activities on United States
oommorco and exports Is similar to
what would happen should tho war in
Europo suddenly stop. Let those who
say pcaco will help tho stock market
Tho war in Europo will stop, and
tho stopping is likely to bo sudden;
but sudden or gradual it will como to
an end, and tho abnormal demand for
our products will ceaso. Tho millions
of mon engaged In, tho armies will at
ouco return to tho fields and tho fac
tories and Europo will begin to pro
vide for Itself tho things it has boun
buying from us, Burdened with tro
mondous debts, it will onter immedi
ately upon a policy of rigid economy,
buying as llttlo as posslblo from
abroad and selling as much as possi
ble to other lands, with tho essential
and doublo purpose of drawing in
gold and restoring commorco. In
stead of buying from ub Europo will
seek to soil us and selling in prodlg
uous quantitlos, It will resort to ovo
ry conccivablo devlco to dispose of Its
products in tho land of all lands that
,has been most enriched by tho strug
glo of its nations and that has by far
' tho greatest quantities of raw ma
lals for a time, most of wlitch, por-
.'haps'lt will buy from us, but it pur-
j.poacs to pay for thorn not In money
i but in goods.
' Tho immediatb consequonco of tho
Ending of Uio war will bo tho stopping
!f all American factories engaged ox
Uuslvoly in tho manufacture of muni
tions, and ithu loss of other factories
f all trado growing out of war condl
ilons. It Is lnovltablo that hundreds
,if thousands of mon in those- Indus

SPECIAL TllItMH'JI OF A NEW ART
David W. Griffith's most extraor
dinary achievement with his now
pholo-HpectaoIb "Tho Birth of a Na
tlon," coming to tho Kofth October
27th, SStli and 30th, is Hi at of making
history live. Ho has touched tho
highost peaks of American history
tho Introduction of Blavery, tho War
of Secession, .tho surrender of Appo-
matox, tho death of Lincoln, tho mlsor
Ics of Reconstruction and tho rcstota-
ton of iho South to Its own. These
things it would have seemed a year
ago, wore boyond tho motion picture
camora. Tho master producer had the
faith of an enthusiast Within 12,000
feet of celluloid film ho has success
fully combined a thrilling, plausible
nnd dignified presentment of national
upgrowth with a real and human lovo
story based on Thomas Dixon's book
romanco, "Tho Clansman." As It ap
pears to tho nowspaper and magazine
critics, Mr. Griffith has not only sur
passed tho art of tho "Indoor" theatre,
but ho has also dcvoloped -tho now art-
form far superior to tho old-style his
tory or historical novel, Tho best
characterization of It so far is that of
a very eminent public man who has
colled It "History by Lightning."
Mi Griffith employed 18,000 pcoplo
in .taking theso historical pictures.
Tho battlo scenes wore actual dupli
(Sates of several of tho Civil War con
filets, and so woro tho facsimiles of
Important ovontB. Wo seo Lincoln
among his councellors Issuing the
call for volunteers, Grant nnd Loo
shaking hands at Appomatox, the shot
that John Wilkes Booth fired, the
Froedman's bureau, tho carpetbaggers'
oxcessos, and tho famous rides of tho
KuKlux, Tho realism is almost un
canny. Often tho old war shouts nro
heard In tho audiences from tho lips
of veterans who momentarily forget
that it is only a picture. It Is hard to
keop ono's foot from dancing to tho
woll-bolovcd tunes of tho martial
music. Scones in tho lattor half of
tho picture aro so skillfully managed
that often the applause is practically
continuous for half to throo quarters
of an hour.
Tho Twentieth Century club will
hold Its annual Good Fellowship ban
quot Tuesday evening, November 14,
at G:30, in tho basement of tho Eplb
copal church, j Tho ladies of the guild
Will furnish a tempting dinner, and
besides tho good things to eat there
will bo an Interesting progrum of mu
sic, toasts and spoochos.. Tickets for
tho banquot will bo forty cents a plato
and It Is enrnostly desired that as
many of tho members ns possible bo
present to booomo acquainted with
each othor and thus lncroaso tho good
fellowship and continued success of
tho club. 80-2

havo paid some attention to but not
participated in tho campaign placo tho
number at 1300. Figuring that not less
than 3500 votos will bo cast in tho
county, that would glvo a majority of
900 for tho dry amendmont. That is
ono hundred less thnn Tho Tribuno ex.
