The Power to Declare War.
Many people who deeply deplore the deadly
conflict riming In Europe ascribe the outbreak
to the porr exercised by the ruling monarch
to declare war. According to their Idea It is a
contest between emperors and kings, rather
than between the peopl of the respective coun
tries, which would not have been possible under
a government in which the power to declare war
lies not in one man, but in the representatives
of popular sovereignty. Those who srgue this
way try to persuade themselves that in a coun
try like our, where a declaration of war must
come from congress, no such combat at arms
would be possible upon similar provocation.
We regret to have to note our dissent from
this conclusion. Bo far as outward appear
ances go, the war is as much, if not more, a war
of nations than of monarch, and the people of
the different countries are thoroughly aroused
to practically unanimous support of the w-ar
lords who are leading them. Were the question
to be put to a referendum vote on a statement
of facts as they iww understand them, the re
turns In every on of theee countries would be
overwhelmingly for war.
Neither does it follow that vesting the
power to tlotiare war In congress, as we do,
would have forestalled the trouble. The truth
Is that war is almost Invarlaly precipitated re
gardless of formal declarations. The absence
of authority In the president to declare war did
not keep us from our tilt with Spain, nor did
the president wait for a command from con
gress to seize Vera Crus In our late hostile
demonstration upon Mexico.
War is more like a wild conflagration set by
a firebrand or flying sparks, equally hard to
chock when once well started. While a war
can scarcely bo successfully waged by any ruler
aaalnst an ainverse sentiment of his own people,
a war with a popular backing behind it is not
likely to be halted by putting the power to make
the formal declaration In one place or another.

Mr. Ultimate Consumer, who has been
shocked at the rise in the price of sugar ss a
result of the war. Is advised by so good an au
thority as Charles A. Svreckels, president of
the Federal Sugar Refining company, that "the
worst is yet to come." In other words, Mr.
Spreckles ssys: "If the war continues and I'm
afraid it Is going to be a long-drawn-out affair
there is no telling where prices may go."
The American sugar market went up, so he
explains, immediately because England, need
ing some 175,000 tons monthly, began compet
ing with our refiners for the Cuban product,
her main source of supply being cut off. The
advance was accentuated by alert American buy
ers rushing In and purchasing granulated sugar
far In excess of usual amounts.
So much for the present situation, but the
future is even more protentous. Warring
European countries produce about 8,000,000
tons of beet sugar yearly, or, as Mr. Spreckles
says, approximately 45 per cent of the world's
supply. It is too much to expect that all of
the present European beet crop yet in the
f'leld will be harvested and made Into sugar.
On the contrary, if the invading troops do not
destroy It the lack of labor to gather the beet
crop and work it In the factory would prevent.
This picture means a continued high range
of prices and curtailed consumption of sugar.
It also Impresses the necessity of developing a
sugar Industry of our own capable of supplying
all American needs.
Profit-Mating; Municipal Enterprises.
Making profit out of municipal undertakings
is simply another way of levying taxes. The
theory of co-operative supply of any public
service Is that the consumers Join together to
provide themselves with It at cost. When a
municipal enterprise is run on the profit
making basis It means only a policy that prefers
to raise revenue by taxes on consumption rather
than by taxes on property or on income. All
cot sumption tsxet, It should also be remem
bered, are paid by the resident inhabitsnts of
the municipality, to that extent relieving non
resident property owners, who thus share the
benefits of the city's growth snd expenditures
without being called on to pay any of the money
raised by this class of taxes.
No Gag-fed Press.
One of the guaranties of the federal consti
tution is a free press. Congress shall not enact
laws to abridge It, neither shall any other
power, so far as the constitution prescribes.
Yet in Butte, Mont., where martial law is
pitted against mob law, the newspapers have
been subjected to military censorship. That
may be no worse than judicial censorshlpJ but It
is nevertheless a decidedly questionable proced
ure. No doubt the good of the community in
volved In this Butte situation calls for the
utmost discretion on the part of the newspapers,
but that end Is obtainable short of Infringe
ment of constitutional rights and guaranties.
It seems to ns the military governors of Butte
have gone to a dangerous extreme.
Germany and Uer Railroads.
The Imperial railroads of Germany have
long been held up by American advocates of
government ownership as an Illustration of
what might be accomplished in the United
8tates. Yet. manifestly, one salient point has
been overlooked, namely, tbst the very esxenre
of the German plan goea to the kaiser's original
scheme of prepsredneas for war. Events at least
have shown that tha German railroads form an
Important and integral part of the German war
machine. To consider the question of ownership
strictly upon its merits, therefore, this should
be taken into consideration. Military value cer
tainly doea not form an element of asset iu the
appraisal of American railroads.

Who Is to Blame f
"I know from personal knowledge, that both Eng
land and France desired most earnestly to avert war,
and both did all in their power to prevent it. Ap
parently, however, th military party, which has In
creased In political strength every year since 1870, and
whleh has tha active and enthusiastic support of the
emperor's eldest son, the crown prince, has swept the
emperor off his feft. He was deeply affected and 1m
preseed by the assassination of his Intimate friend,
the Archduke Viands i erdlnand: and apparently
saw In It great perlla to exlstng Institutions. Thu
purposes of the military party had been revealed In
books like that of General von Bernhardl'a but no
one thought them aerlotfs. Germany has three great
classes: The Industrial, which has proapered so mar
velously since the Franco-Prussian war; the intel
lectual, which commanda the admlrat'on of the world;
and the Prussian military, which is both militant
and reactionary, but controla the policy of the am
plre. Its alms are, reducing France to a German
province, and pouring the marvelous earnlnga of the
French poople Into the military chest, and the acqui
sition of Holland snd Belgium. This would give to
Germany fortified ports along the English channel,
ltd whole rilatance, and enable Germany to dispute the
control of tho chsnnel and the mastery of tha seas.
It might also be possible to carry across tho nsrrow
belt of water 6i0,0n or 1.000,000 soldiers, thus fulfilling
the dream of Napoleon, to conquer Great Britain.
