LETTERS from Europe, especially from the center of war, are de
cidedly interesting at present. Edward B. Perkins of New York,
formerly of this city and High school reporter for The Dee, has
written an interesting letter from Vienna dated July 27:
"This has been a most fortunate trip for me, for I .have landed in
different plares at the most exciting and interesting' time. At Preatwtck,
Scotland, I saw the World's Open Golf championship; in Iiondon, the
World's Open Tennis championship at Wimbledon, and the Midnight Cos
tume ball at the Hotel Savoy, and in Paris the big review of the Paris gar
rison of the French army at Longchamps July 14. And then I arrive in
Vienna on the very evening when war preparations began between Servia
and Austria! I
"Believe me, this is no common war scare. It it a stern reality.
Vienna is literally swamped with, troops ready to embark for the Servian
border. One sees soldiers at every turn and every hour, day and night.
I Jostled with the loud-voiced populace at two different street demonstra
tions Saturday night, one near Nordwest . Bahnhof (station) and the
other on the Graben. Violent speaking and deafening shouting, but or
derly conducted, nevertheless. Both Saturday and Sunday nights wild
scenes were enacted in some of the cafes, with patriotic music and singing
of national songs. There are hourly Issues of extra papers with huge
"At the Feslsplel theater. In Kaisergarten, last- night I heard the
much discussed operetta, 'Terefllta. The playhouse was crowded, and
ahoutlng and stamping of feet between acts. The orchestra cut out the
-waltzes and played Austrian war marches, one of which, Eugene," the
Noble Knight,' Includes actual firing of a series of rifle and field artillery
. "Leave for Budapest Thursday, July 30 a-four .hours' Journey
and have my ticket to Belgrade from Budapest, and then to Trieste, to
eall Angust 6 on the Carptthla. It Is not certain if one can cross the
border Into Servia, since -two railroad bridges across the Danube have
already been, blown up and traffic halted. If I do not get, down . into
Servia I will only be out about 90 kronen, so why worryonly I certatnly
would, like to see a couple of real battles. They're considerably .ruffled
up and anxious to fight. , . 1
"Have made a fair alied amount of geld' already . on a feature war
Article and have three more assignments when this war hurricane begins
to whirl death and destruction. Vienna is under military law and all
messages are censored."

called for his departure from Rhleras

he was to visit Cologne, Berlin, Dresden

We remember when we were younger than we are now being thrilled with the jingle, which was
sung in Music Ilalla, hummed in the homes and marched to on the streets:
We don't want to fight, but by jingo if we do
We've got the ships, we've got the men, we've got the money, too
Since then philosophers have talked of peace and prophets have declared "There shall be war no
more," and yet the cry in this twentieth century is' cannonaded round the world PEACE, PEACE
THERE SHALL BE NO PEACE 1 1 We are still cave men and Force must govern the world, notwith.

disement! Creed! Selfishness!
