The surface occasions and pretexts for war
are seldom identical with the bed rock cause.
fur great war between the states was pre

cause, as every one knows, was nnro slavery.

Our recent eelzure of Vera Cruz was predi
cated on the failure to comply unconditionally
with the demand for a salute of the Stars and
Stripes; the cause was the usurpation and abuse
of power by Huerta.
Tho occasion of the present European con
flict is ostensibly the assassination of the crown
prince of Austria ami his coneort, but the cause
lies in race rivalries and commercial Jealousies
bolstered up by life-sapping militarism.
When the Spanish war ended we forgot all
about the Maine, and our troops are now to be
withdrawn from Vera Cruz without waiting for
the salute. Likewise It Is a safe guess that the
peace treaty concluding the pending conflict

Still After Freight Rate Increase.
Not content with the substantial victory
won In the ruling of the Interstate Commerce
commission on their petition for 5 per cent
freight rate Increase, 112 railroad companies,
comprising thirty-five railway systems operat
ing In the territory affected, have come back
for a further modification to accord with their
original demands. There is no doubt the rail
roads have been encouraged In this proceduro
by the knowledge that the commission was di
vided over the merits of their showing, and that
Its dcclalon was rendered by a majority with
a vigorous dissent from the minority.
The present plea of the railroads In that the
advances authorized are not sufficient to make
up the needed Increase in tariff revenues, and
they evidently believe that they can furnish
convincing proof of their statement. But the
order giving the partial Increase was only ren
dered as of date July 29, 1914, or but little
more than six wecka ago, and how the experi
ence of this short time can warrant a conclu
sion as to results Is far from plain, particularly
In view of the general disturbance of trade
which makes the exlhlblt of railroad earnings as
abnormal as those of other business linen. Still
anortier factor to be considered Is the Increase
of railway mall pay now in prospect, and the
further pending applications for intrastate
Increases before various state commissions.
Taken altogether, it seems to us that in ask
ing a reopening of their case thus early, the
railroads, are to use a colloquial phrase, trying
to rush things, aa If fearing a more deliberate
experiment might lose to them the force of the
The Maine Political Pointer.

governors and congressmen ahead of the regu

year has elected a democratic governor by a
Bafe plurality, but a distinct minority of the to

apart fivm the aeparate third party vote.
In a nutshell, It will be hard for anybody
outside of Maine to get any particular comfort
out of the Maine election.
Don't Carry the Joke Too Far.
A good joke la always relished, and so Is In

it stay there to mar the beauty of the building

it In the wrong way.
The extravagant appropriations of our last
legislature are now being charged up by the
democrats to the republican state senate. That
admits that the appropriations were extrava

the democratic house or a democratic governor.

NEW ORLEANS, Sept. M.-To the
Editor of The Bee: We are sure that
you will be glnd to know there Is not a
alngle case of bubonic plague In New
New Orleans haa been hurt a great deal
by publicity It haa received; several large
conventions have been cancelled, and the
city haa suffered more than It should
In view of the heroic health ordinances
drafted and enforced at the expense of
the people. '
Of course, New Orleans does not blamo
the newspapera for this undesirable pub.
Hclty. It Is their business to print the
news and as long as their reports are ac
curate and dependable they have a right
to whatever newa value there may have
been In the bubonic plague. However, now
that the lat cane has disappeared, we
trust that you will be kind enough to
exploit thla fact In Justice to this city.
Out of the twenty-five human cases of
plague at New Orleans only six died. Of
the six, three were very old and feeble,
and the others died before the aerum
treatment wa administered. From this
you will readily understund that the
plague is pretty much of a bugaboo and
that New Orleans haa been advertlxed in
a wav that the situation did not war
rant. Surgeon General Rupert Blue ha
declared that there Is absolutely no dan

Orleans, ami we hope that we are not

must rrfpare Itself, that the Swedish population should

armies. This enthusiasm for Germany nnd dislike be

Just About Women
In spite of tills sentiment In favor of Germany. It
seems that oil political partle are united in trying to
maintain strict neutrality, and it la to be hoped for the
good of Si andlnavla that It may escape the horror of
war. It will be remembered that Norway, in Wu, dlu
s.lved the bond uniting It with Swden and has since
had a king of Its own. There was a considerable num
ber who felt that Oscar II. at that time king or Nor
way and Sweden, ought to handle the Norwegian
uuestion with an Iron hand and that Sweden ought t)
compel Norway to come back to the fold. Fortunate. y
tetter Judgment prevailed, and we may ffel sure that
Oscar II will stand higher in the snnals of mankind
than he would have stood If a Scandinavian war h:td
broken out. bringing with It hostility and hatred whith
would not down In scores of years, not t mention the
ruffering an 1 misery which war Inevitably brings In
ita train. Sweden and Norway separated for better or
worse, a the future will make clear. What has lieen
the result of these peaceful deliberations between Swe
den and Norway? The two countries today stand
closer to one another than before. Witness the fact
that Norway nnd Sweden, In these very days of Inter
national distrust, have entered upon an agreement with
one another that they are to act In concert to maintain
peace and that they will, under no circumstances, fight
one another. This mutual understanding 1 the result
of peaceful deliberations.
Those of us who spent the summer In Scandinavia
were glad to know that peace prevailed at least In that
corner of the world. The Norway-America Bteamship
company und the Scandinavian-American line have
leen running their steamers practically without any
disturbance during the past weeks. T.Yt all were for
tunate enough to have made reservations -vlth a Scan
dinavian line, and for many it was necetsary to gx by
way of F.ngland. Frequently connection with Kngland
haa been cut off. The rout of travel from Malmo,
Sweden, is usually by rail over the Danish Islands and
Jutland, and then by steamer from Esbjerg to Har
wich. At Malmo we learned that two Danish steam
er had been sunk by mine and that there was no
further connection over Denmarl;. Fortunately, an
Englifh steamer wa to arrive at Gothenburg In a day
or two. und it would be possible to reach England from
tho,t port. The steamer Oslo of the Wilson line left
Gothenburg about noon tif September 2. All passen
gers wero ordered below while the steamer passed be
tween the Swedish mine, a precaution taken by the
Swedish government aa a afeguard agalnt sple. In
stead of crossing the North Sea at once the steamer
turned to the right and followed the Swedish coast
northward, ri aching Norway In the evening. With
lights extinguished, we followed the Norwegian const
during the night and part of the next day, first in a
southwesterly direction and then toward the north
west, until we were In the neighborhood of Stavanger.
whereupon the steamer headed for the open sea, bravl
Ing the danger of the deep. The fact that the ateamer
so faithfully followed neutral shores. Inspired the
passengers with confidence that the captain wag tak
ing no chances being captured by a German cruiser or
running upon a floating mine. On the third flay the
hill of Scotland appeared on the horlron. and the city
of Aberdeen came into view. As one noticed on thu
left hand tho British men of war stationed here and
lher along the British coast, a few miles out there
could be but little feeling of fear, aa our atoamer was
carrying the British flag. In England there was on th.
surface very little excitement, and the passengers from
Scandinavia were transferred to I Jverpool In short
order. On the evening of the same day that we land-d
at Hull we were off from Liverpool bound for the land
of our adoption, and In spite of war times the trip
from Gothenburg, Sweden, to New York by way of Eng
land was made in ton days. The steamer on the At
lantic discarded liKht a much aa possible, and took a
course north of tho one generally followed, but there
were no dangers In sight.
There was a goodly number of Swedish-American
citizens on hoard, men and women who appreciate
what the old world ha to give the new but who feel
at home In America and rejoice to live In a land where
all nations meet and have dealings with each other In
a peaceful w ay and by dally association learn t mi
derstand and appreciate one another. In these days of
carnage the nations of Europe might well learn a
lesson from their own children In the new world who
live together through the year without getting Into
any serious trouble-Frenchmen, Germans. Russian
Austrlans, all are members of one great nation, a com
mon country for which each one individually would be
willing to die. If need be. But there la no doubt that
these various peoples, now Amerlcanlred. would prefer
life to death and wish to live together in peace and
harmony for their own good and for that of ths
