War ii On.
Only one thing now seems certain In the
progress of European events and that Is that
Austria-Hungary has declared war on Servla.
Whether the righting . Is to be localized to these
two powers, or whether It Is to develop Into a
genoral continental war, with Russia, Greece,
Monlonegro, Roumanla and others helping Ser
vla, and Germany and Italy supporting Austria,
no one now can foretell. In any event. It may
bo regarded as a race war, with Teuton and
Slav fighting for supremacy.
Out a more vital principle Is at stake. It
forms tho very pivot of Austria's declaration of
war the pan-Servian movement. Scrvin's re
fusal to stop this propaganda In response to
Austria's command provoked hostilities. Tho
principle at stake, then, is tho right of a great
imperialist power to dominato a weaker people
struggling for nationality; for the right of one
race under one flag. Servla'a aspiration Is the
uniting of all Serbs under a common govern
ment which shall be n strong and Independent
That Is the spirit and principle at stake,
which Austria seeks to crush. It is the spirit
and principle that has ultimately conquered and
prevailed In atl the struggles of history. It re
mains to bo seen whether force of arms or
superior nu rubor subdues It In this conflict.
Austria, to be snre, Is a mightier and more
highly developed nation than Servla, but Servla
lias the right to become all that it can gather
tho power to nchlovo along this line. And when
It comes to a mere matching of resources, the
Ihsiio Is not certain. Russia, it Is said, is ready
with 5,000,000 tralnod men for Servla'a relief,
should Russia decide to pitch In. Greece sayrf
It will send 100.000. Russia Is said to have an
other 1,000,000 on whom to call In a crisis,
whllo Roumanla and adjoining countries might
furnish 1.000,000. Even, therefore, should Ger
many come to Austria's aid, thcro would be a
rather fornildublo Slav army to movo against
the Teutons, enough so to mako tho result
All Europe Is aflamo with the war spirit.
Events are succeeding men other in rapid suc
cession, yet tho hope of peace, rogardlcss of the
prospect, must bo cherished.

Bryan's Citizenship in Nebraska.
It is Interesting to find our amiable demo
cratic contemporary, the personal organ of our
United States senator, gleefully giving promi
nent display to the rumor that "after tho closo
of tho present administration Secrotnry W. J.
Rryan will movo from Nebraska to North Caro
lina." Mr. Bryan has been moved several times
In the same manner from Nebraska to Texas,
and from Nebraska to Florida, but has steadily
held fast to IiIh Nebraska residence citizenship,
and It Is in Nebraska, or ns a Nebraskan, that
ho has aspired to all the political honors he has
In this connection let' us quote a slightly
condensed extract from the speech made by Mr.
Dry an on returning to Lincoln aftor his first
nomination for tho presidency:
Thl scene tonltfit reeulls tho day when, by nccl
dent, rather than by design, I first att foot within
tho limit of the city '.of Lincoln. I remember It
because I fell In love with tho city and then re
solved -to make It my future home. I dealro to give
you. the assurance that If, by tho suffrages of my
countrymen, I am called to occupy for a short spare
of time, tlis moat honorable plnco In the gift of the
people. I ahull return .to you. Till aha;l be my homo
and when earthly honor have passed I shall mlngla
my ashes with tho dust of our beloved state,
If Mr. Bryan meant wljat ho said when he
spoke to his neighbors this removal talk Is pure
figment of the imagination, born, or at least
stimulated out of apprehension that ho may bo
back In Nebraska two years nonce offorlng him
self as a candidate for United States Benator.

' Ne? Agency of Peace.
The decision of a federal court that it will
construe and enforce awards in arbitration
I under tho Newlands act, suggests a new agency
1 of industrial peace and orderly means of set-
Ming labor disputes. The' englnemen on tho
ninety-eight railroads Involved In the threat
. ened strlko urged, as their only" objection to
I the proposed arbitration, lhat they hadvbeen
unable on some former occasions to hold the
corporations to the awards under the arbitra
ment, Coming from so reliable and sober a
body of men, this amounted to a very grave
charge. It challenged attention of the public
and a reply from the railroads. If It wero Jus
tified, then the railroads were ort.the defensive.
The englnemen continue to stand by their
declaration. If, therefore, the pending media
tion finally falls of a peaceful way out, possibly
the solution may come under the Newlands law.
At any rate, it la well to have this ruling at this
tlnm.' Of course, it is simply unthinkable to
let tho negotiations terminate In a strike that
would utterly paralyze the business of tho coun
try. Neither tho englnemen 'nor tho railroads
desire such a Condition. This is a good time,
therefore, for the perfecting of some legal mech
anism" for the -adjustment of such differences
and thn enforcement of the awards.

March of the Slav
Efforts of Eace for Freedom Chang
ing Boundaries of Europe's Map.
St. Lout Republic.
When England and France, back In 18i3, Joined
hands with tho Turk to keep Russia, from driving
that unspeakable. Individual out of Buropo the White
Czar was cast down, but not in despair. He simply
decided that what be was not allowed to do himself
he would raise up someone else to accomplish.
Russia we then tho only Slavic power in Europe,
but thpro were many millions of Slavs under tho
overlordshlp of German and Turkish masters. Rus
sia kept tho peace she had to keep, out she never
for an hour relaxed her effort to set Slavic Europe
on fire from Boanla to tho Black sea and from tho
Danube to the Aegean, She, tho most autocratic power
In Europe, ospoused the cause of oppressed peoples
struggling for freedom: she helped them with coun
sel, with teacher and leaders, with gifts of money
and of arms. As a result there were born Into the
European family of nations tho Slavic nations ot
Bulgaria and Servla nnd the "East Roman" princi
pality of Roumanla. The Turkish frontier has been
pushed back until tho lck man has European do
minions Just a trifle larger than tho little state of
Vermont, and Slavic Bulgaria has reached the Aegean.
Tho only great change In the map of Europe
since tho creation of the German empire I that
which record the advanco of tho Slav. The re-
cont history of Servla. and Bulgaria 1 splendid with
deeds of heroism not only the heroism that risks
Itself In the high place of the field, nut tho hero
ism that take tlio bread from children mouths
and loada heavy burdens on the backs ot women
that hUAbands and fathers may fight' for the na
tion. All the Slavs ot Europe are a-qulver with
pride In view of the valor of Bulgar nnd Servian
Now many million of Slavs are still under for
eign masters. These aro mostly to be found In
Austria-Hungary. In Austria tho ruling race the
German numbers less than 10,000,000, but there are
thero almost 17,000,000 Slavs 70 per cent more than
their overlords, In Hungary the Slavs aro half us
many as tho ruling Magyars. Add together tho Slavs
of the dual monarchy nnd they are two and one
quarter millions more than German and Magyars
put together. No wonder the head that wear the
crown In Vienna "lies uneasy." . Germans and Mag
yars are held together precariously by tho sqlo tie
forged' by a common ambition and a common danger.
What would, become of the realm of the Hapsburgs
if the Slavs of tho dual monarcfty should awaken
to- their power?
Following the splendid Slavic successes of the
Balkan war, with their Irresistible appeal to Slavic
ambition nnd raco spirit, came the brutal murder ot
tho heir to tho Anstro-Hungarlan crown by a Servian
anarchist. There were two ways of regarding this
crime, between which Austria had to choose. 3hc
might remember that the danger from the hand of
the anarchist Is common to all the ruler of the
world ami had not spared even the gentle MoKlnley,
Btruck down by a man whose countrymen had found
asylum and high opportunity undr tho Stars and
Stripes. Or aho might choose to see lq the outrage
only Servian revenge for the taking over of Bosnia
and strike back. Austria has chosen the latter course.
The Balkans aro the powder magazine of Europe
and Austria 1 walking thcro with a naked torch.
Looked at from tho point of view of the heaviest
battalions, the end seems certain. What la Servla
that she would dare defy a flrst-clasa power? She Is
a little land, whose territory, almost doubled by, her
rnnnuenta In the lute. war. In still less than, half
theVlze ot the: state of Missouri. Her capital city'
has less than 100.CXX) people; her total annual for
eign trade, export and Import, has less than one
fifth the value of the manufactures of the city of
St, Louts for a like period. Her population, with
Its recent addition. Is about four and one-halt mil
lions. She Is heavily In- debt. When the Balkan
war' had been in progress but three months Servla
owed $130,000,000 $20,000,000 more than the debt of the
great state of New York. And Austria-Hungary Is
one of the great powers.
But In the struggles of nations there are many
factors besides gold nnd steel. There, for example,
Is brood. Austria's humiliating demand on Servla
has roused Russia, and Russia on her own fron
tier In Kurope is a vary different antagonist from
Russia at tho end of a single-track railroad -t.000
miles long. If Servla and Austria come to blows,
Montenegro will fall on the Austrian flank and the
Montenegrins aro the Fuzzy-wuzzles of Europe. And
who can tell what my result from the Slavic spirit
stirring. In the breast of 17,000,000 Austrian Slavs?
The dual monarchy Is not at peace within, even
leaving the Slavic element out of account. The Bal
kan war largely ruined Hungary's trade on the
lower Danube. The Magyars are asking themselves
whether It profits them to be ued as the cats'-paw
to pull 'the Hapsburg chestnuts out of the fire. And
Hungary Is In a very different position relative to
the "Slavic peril" from that of Austria, for the
Magyars are twice as many as 'the Hungarian
Slavs, while the Germans are but 100 in Austria to
every IJfO Slavs.
About forty years ago the map ot Europe was
made over by the Franco-Prussian war. In 1913 It
was altered again by the Balkan war. Is tho hand
ot fate once more to erase boundaries and change
the name of principalities and powers? Who can tell?
