Dreading the Responsibilitj.
Already European nations begin to dread
the responHlblllty of the threatened slaughter.
Their faces shorn of the mask of peaceful pre
tense, yet reveal the fear of consequnces. Ger
many thus ee-rly Issues its "White Book," ex
plaining the progress of events leading to wwr
In Justification of Its course. Each nation tn
turn blames the other. A cartoonist who senses
the situation shows Austria pointing a scornful
finger at Servla and Bervla at Austria: Russia,
France, England and Belgium at Germany and
Germany at Russia, while., Italy strvnds with
arms folded In the background.
But fixing the blame Is the task of history.
It probably will divide the responsibility as be
tween the several nations so long engaged in
mounting momentous machinery of destruction
and desolation. Europe has been sitting for
years at the mouth of a volcano awaiting the
eruption. Too many monarchs evidently have
bt'en seeking a means of vindicating their mad
military policies for any one to be solely at
fault. Now, the war lorde seem to have de
creed the time has come to demonstrate the
necessity end, therefore, the wisdom, of their
A National Sorrow.
While heultatlng to Intrude upon the sacred
nces of the president's grief, the American peo
ple share the affliction that death lays upon
the official head of their nation. They sorrow
with the president and those about him bereft
of wife end mother. Mingled with their sorrow
Is the spirit of admiration for the unmurmuring
fortitude with which the approaching Inevitable
was endured in the privacy of the family circle.
Mrs. Wilson was said to have been one of
the most accomplished and capable women to
whom the honor of being "first lady of the land,"
ever came. Yet she lived her attainments
largely In the quieter seclusion from public
ity, not without extending her Influence and her
works through channels of human need. She
was one of the wives who rendered practical
help and service to the devoted husband on
whom devolved the stern duties of a chief mag
istry. Her legacy to the country, therefore, lies
chiefly In the example of the worthiness of
woman exalted and exalting her sphere.
"Unea.7 Lie. th Had."
Once more the cry of "God save the king"
hs more than an empty meaning in Europe.
The biggest stake In the present war is monarch
ical government. Napoleon III tripped lightly
off to meet Von Moltke's army, and the French
republic rose from the ruins of the struggle.
In America,. at lout, the belief will not down
that this Is chiefly a war of royalty. Long have
the masses been oppressed by the burden of mlU
ltarlsm and the high cost of living that war
might come. . Strange people they are to covet
.. "Qod save .the king" is no vain cry today, at
least with the. king.' .

The Value of Control.
The opposing pitchers in a twenty-one-
inning game of base ball, the Messrs. Rube Mar
quard and Babe Adama. when asked .what they
regarded as tbe chief element of their achieve
ment, replied alike:
They both expressed the feeling they could
have thrown every ball pitched Into a tincup.
The peerless Mathewson Is made great be
cause of his control. 80 Is every other (rest
pitcher. Youngsters aspiring to fame In the
box on base ball diamonds make the fatal mis
take if they fail to put control above every other
factor of their work. They may have all the
curves and speed there Is, but without control
they will go back every time.
So It is in every other game of life, the fel
low without control of his own powers falls.
Only he who has It wins. It has been so all
through history. Mighty men have vanquished
tbelr hosts In battle, destroyed or built empires
and wept for larger conquests, yet lacking tbe
power of self-control, been consumed at last by
"He that ruleth his own spirit Is greater
than he that taketh a city," Perhaps If there
had been more of this power of self-control
among. some of the treat monarchs of Europe
war would not now be darkening the universal
sky. In tbe big as well as the little channels
of life this ptjwef of self-control shows Itself
nowhere more conspicuously than In the ability
to ward off or Ignore purely personal affronts
without magnifying them beyond all . sensible
proportions Into causes of bitterness and war.
Men too -often mistake power for the vain ex
hibition of force or might. Power may be both
developed and demonstrated best by rational
conservation then a wild exercise of it.
'The Pace of Prog-reis.
A scientist recently predicted ' as the next
step in wireless development telephonic commu
nications across the seaa.
Wbo will doubt It? Head your war news of
the day and note the prominence given to the
failure of steamers heading Into port without
having signalled their approach by wireless for
fear of disclosing their positions to an enemy.
The idea of a ship captain doing such a
thing in this day and age!' Yet only yesterday
Marconi, still a young man, was dreaming out
his secret. Who knows what we may not next
do with the mysteries of science?
The war has already caused a treat rush
locally of foreign-born to take out American
citlsenshlp papers. That makes District Court
Clerk Robert Smith smile as he contemplates
pocketing the plethora of naturalisation fees In
addition to his If ,000-a-year salary.
Those cotes exchanged by Nicholas and Wil
liam, couched la the solemn style and endearing
terms, read a good deal like the effusions of two
rital society beaux with their bands behind
them respectively clutching a nice, sharp

Aaether Irish: View.
OMAHA. Aug. (.-To tha Editor of The
Bee: I am very much aurprtaed at read
Ins a letter In your letter box written
by Mr. MrChrlstaJ. to think that there
wis ever an Irishman Of ha Is an Irish
man) with such views. Ireland has been
fighting for home rule for a rood many
yeara. and yet any time England waa in
trouble tha Jrle.li forgot their troublea
and helped out the mother country, aa I
hope they always will.
I waa born there myeelf and consider
myself aa good Irish aa ever waa. I,
have two uncles, as good Catholics aa
ever wore brogane one In the Ennle
klllen Dragoons and one In tha Dublin
Fulllrrs a brother who has juat served
twelve yeara In the British navy and will
go out again as a member of tha re
serve; a brother-in-law, who la an officer
In the Prltlfh navy, and a father who
served fifteen years in the British navy.
Kvery one of them wants home rule, but
dlvll the bit will that Interfere with
their fighting for the old country.
In hla letter to you ha aaya: "Yea. In
the name of Uod, render tip tha scepter
of authority to some other Irishman, who
will wield It mora effectively for tha
honor of Old Ireland and for the glory
of the Gael." That doea not sound Irish
to me, and a better leader than John
Redmond for the Irish never was yet, and
he did just exactly aa any leader of the
Irish, who waa worthy to be a leader,
would do In audi circumstances. Tha
sentence, "Kngland'a difficulties ara Ira
land'a opportunities." which he uses, was
never meant to be used In thla sense.
As he aaya, John Redmond's honor and
Intergrity as an Irish patriot waa tested,
and he responded Juat aa a good Irish
man should and just as good Irish always
will. I have talked with acveral good
Irishmen In Omaha, and every one of
the young ones said he did Juat right.
I have eerved three years with the
United Btates cavalry. Second regiment,
but If I was in the old country now,
chancea ara I would be In the midst of
tha trouble with the reat of the family,
because I haven't any more sense than
they have. WILLIAM I LAMB.
Lettera from a Political lleathea
SOMEWHERE, Aug. S.-To tha Editor
of The Bee: Tea, the French occupation
of Mexico waa a part of the slaveholders'
rebellion. The last battle of our civil
war waa fought at Queretaro, Mexico on
May IS, 18ET, where and when Juares,
Central Escobedo captured Maximilian of
Mapaburg and hla army. Had there been
no secession there would have been no
occupation. The California copperhead.
Dr. Gwln (Ea-L'nlted States senator),
waa Imprisoned for disloyalty, after tha
suspenalon of the writ of habeas corpus.
Owln, Judge Terry, with there, were try
ing to Induce California and Oregon to
secede and found the Pacifio republic,
Terry, upon tha defeat of this schema,
entered the confederate army. Owtn
upon his release went to Mexloo and was
checked by juwl with the Archduke
Maximilian. Owln was a native of tha
south and aought to establish a colony
of southerners In tbe Mexican state of
Beriora. He trotted back and forth be
tween the Tullerlea and the City of
Mexico. After Maximilian's death he still
stuck to hla colony project. Though he
had ceased to be an American clUsen by
accepting a . title of nobility duke of
Sonora from Maxlmilan. he waa back tn
California In 1STS howling for Tilden and
reform. At tha collapse of the con
federacy, the acientlst, Matthew Fontaine

It is but a gamble a gamble In the lives of men.
the hearta of women and children. The Baroness
von Suttner, in one of her books, tells us how she
came first to set herself as a priestess of peace.
Her Interest took Its rise from several sources First
of all, her Immediate experience of tha effect of
wars. She saw the flower of Austria's youth brought
home either dead or mutilated; she saw the suffering
of wives and mothers: she saw that aa a general
thing these wars arose out of petty disputes and
that very rarely any great principle was at stake.
Another thing that has aroused her against militarism
was that In all the conversation which aha heard
in court circles, wsr was treated simply aa a noble
game. The officers spoke of It In the most heartless
way, and considered the peasantry aa nothing but
pawna and machines, to be used for tnelr winning
of the game. She also saw how war continually de
stroyed the civilisation that years had gained, , so
that the nations were simply going around In a
circle. It built up a beautiful structure of mind, soul,
and material things during the years of peace, and
then proceeded to knock It down again. There then
began to come to her a vialon of a new order for
tha world, and ahe began a career of splendid effort
that ended only in her death a few montha ago.
In the twinkling of an eye everything this great
woman hated and feared haa come to pass. "It will
be the bloodiest of wars," says General Nelson A.
Miles, a commanding authority, "and the laat" That
la to say. It will be so destructive that there csn
never be another. The single abatement of horror is
that It cannot be of Kmg duration. 1
We shall soon seo the use and power of the
airship and the torpedo boat. There Is reason to
believe that the modern cruiser Is . already obsolete
and that dreadnaughts and auper-dreadnaughta ar
doomed because they can no longer be safe from the
submarine at sea nor find security against tha perils
In the air above them. On the ocean as In narrow
waters they are at the mercy of the submersible
torpedo carrier. Sir Percy Scott, In bis forecast ef
the future, assuming that submarine uannot fight
submarine, sees the end of sea wwifare .altogether.
Neither numbers nor skill are to avail. Nothing
will live afloat, for, If opposed nations have provided
themselves with a sufficiency of submarines, they
can destroy everything which cannot hide from these
vessels below the surfaca
It Is tha human, not tha mechanical, aids of It
which is moat at atake In the minds and hearts of
disinterested observers; and the extent of this cannot
be exaggerated. All theae nations hare been pre
paring for this during more than a generation. We
may se now the meaning of the antl-mllitariat dis
cussions In France; the stubborn refusal of Germany
to consider disarmament; the quandary of England.
At leaat Germany considers herself prepared. Whether
Austria will prove a broken reed, or superior equip
ment and soldiership will make good the dlspalty
of forces, wbo can tell? May not Parla be In dan
ger? Can England and Ruasla unllmber tsulck
