Rio Janeiro, Oct. 23. Parlia
ment will vote tomorrow on the
question of authorizing; the govern
ment to declare that a state of war
exists between Germany and Brazil
and also on all necessary legislation
for the carrying on of war.
President Urges War.
The president of t;ie republic, Dr.
AVenceslo Braz, has sent a message
to congress declaring it is impossible
to avoid noting already the' state of
Avar which Germany has imposed on
Brazil. He proposes the seizure of
a German warship now in the port
Brazil revoked her decree of neu
trality in the war between the en
tente allies and Germany last June.
The Brazilian government had prev
iously revoked its policy of aloof
ness so far as-it affected hostilities
between the United States and Ger
many. The trouble bewten Brazil
and Germany reached a climax in
April when the Brazilian steamer
Parana was torpedoed. The German
minister received his passports and
anti-German riots broke out in sev
eral cities. A large number of Ger
man ships in Brazilian ports were
Recent German Intrigues.
Recent dispatches from Buenos
Aires reported disclosures of German
intrigues to bring about a conflict
between Brazil, Argentina and Uru
The parliamentary, diplomatic com
mission discussed the message, which
it ia considered possible the chain
ber will adopt.
Would Join Allies.
The torpedoing of the Brazilian
ship Macau is causing considerable
comment. The Journal Do Commer
"Brazil does not look for war and
does not want war, but Germany is
driving us into the whirl. We shall
go with the countries for whom
honor is above all."
According to declarations of vari
ous members before the chamber, a
declaration of war would be the
only satisfactory solution and the
diplomatic commission should not
again come before the chamber with
out a declaration of war.
Some of the members said there
was not a single Brazilian who did
not espouse the cause of the government.

Co-operation is civilization's foundation stone. We are
not exactly our "brothers keeper," but each day we are com
ing to realize more fully the common kinship of humanity.
We are learning that our own selfishness hurts us more
than it does the other fellow. We are learning that our activi
ties in making a living for ourselves affect others besides us.
Every day's work we do whether it be as a common la
borer, or as a master-executive directing the course of some
great enterprise starts a multitude of complex machinery
working in our delicately adjusted economic fabric.
The dinner you ate today, the field you plowed, your day's
work in the shops every activity, no matter how common
place, has an influence upon your fellowman-at-large. Like
wise the dinner eaten by your neighbor over the way, or the
field he plowed, or his day's work in the shops his every ac
tivity, no matter how commonplace, has an influence upon
you, more or less direct.
Every normal human being is working for one purpose
to get life's necessities and perhaps some of its luxuries.
We are fast learning that the best way to further our
own selfish interests is to contribute as well as consume.
We influence, and are mostly influenced by those most
intimately associated with us. For this reason the individual
does or does not grow and prosper exactly as the community
in which he lives does or does not grow and prosper.
It is most necessary that each citizen (for his own well
being) do all in his power to make his community a prosper
ous, progressive one. Co-operation is the most wonderful of
