JJaval Valne of the Canal.
Secretary Daniels seeks to ease apprehen
sions over inadequate Pacific coant defences by
declaring that in an emergency the Atlantic
fleet could be dispatched to the Pacific within
eighteen days to deal with any hostile craft in
those waters. Pondering this sugsents some
thing of the naval value of the Panama canal
to the United States. Incidentally, without the
canal at such a time as the present, what would
not be said of the necessity for an exclusive Pa
The canal was built, It is true, for the bene
fit of world commerce, but let us not forget that
it waa built also, as a means of providing better
naval defenses for this country. This point wss
stated by Colonel George W. Ooethals, as chair
man and chief engineer of the canal commission
in a 1911 report to the secretary of war la
Asaumln that the canal Is being built for the
benefit of the commerce of the world. It la neverthe
leaa a military asset tc th I'nlted States, and condi
tions may arise In which the military netvssltiea of
the nation will become paramount. In other words,
whlla daring certain perloda the operation of tho
canal la for commercial purposes, entirely separata
and distinct rom the military, there are times when
the military necessities must predominate.
It is a fact, as Secretary Daniels points out,
that one of th objects in constructing this
canal wag to make It possible for one fleet to
defend both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, so
that if such a thing be now advocated It need
not be thought new or strange. With proper
fortifications, the canal's chief military service
probably would He In its facilitating ths trans
fer of ships, on short notice., As our nation
aspires to military and naval efficiency only for
purposes of self-defense, those who sre now at
templng agitation for a separate Pacific fleet,
would seem to be vainly beating the "ambient
The Sale of Arms
Moving Up the Tims Clock.
Those of us who thought our clocks and
watches were set for all the days to come when
th system of so-called stsndard time was
adopted evidently have another guess, for here
la an agitation actually broken out for pushing
the bands up another hour for the purpose, so
we are told, of giving ourselves an extra hour
of daylight to work by each day. Most of us
labor under the delusion that if we keep re
setting our clocks, we land In the same place by
finding the daylight hours stationery and only
ourselves moving. Yet the champions of this
proposal who are located in Chicago where
else would they be expected to be located
argue that by forcing ourselves to get up and
to start to work an hour earlier, we would bring
another hour of daylight into th end of the
day, with untold benefits to the health and hap
piness of all mankind.
The only visible drawback to this little
scheme Is that it also brings one more hour of
darkness Into the beginning of the day, but of
course that doesn't 'count. - Neither do 'the
clock-changing time-servers give any considera
tion whatever to Old Sol, who at least might
wish to be consulted, or to th tact that he now
arrives in Chicago a, half hour ahead of his ar
rival In Omaha, so that to put Omaha on a'par
with Chicago we would have to push up th
hands here, not an hour, but an hour and a half.
Th natural normal move to make to get right
with daylight would be to go back to good old
sun tlm. which means a different time clock In
every town, and who wants that?

- This Httl telegram vas delivered to Senator
Stone of Missouri on a train at Cincinnati. It
simply mesns another executive attempt to
knock 8enotor Reed of Missouri Into a knocked
hat. 8enator Reed, it will be recalled, has be
"fernlnst" th administration on about very
possible occasion. This Is th second server pen
alty Imposed upon him for his recalcitrance
within the last week or so. Th other was the
appointment of a dark-hors man as postmaster
at Kansas City, when Reed had. urged former
But thla man Bland, a son of th 1st fa
mous "SI'ver Dick." was not an aspirant for th
United States marnhalshlp and knew nothing of
the use of his name In this connection until
asked over the long-distance telephone from
Washington if he would accept the office If ten
dered. Despite the shock, he recovered in time
to say be would, although he had been quit
content with his position of municipal Judge. It
seems, however, that while Senator Reed was
urging another and Senator Stone had no
candidate, Congressman Borland had suggested
Judge Bland and put it across over Senator
The episode only Illustrates what a lot of
unsparing use of the rod la required to keep
from spoiling this disobedient Missouri senator.
All of which reminds us of the alniilar plight of
a democratic senator from Nebraska, and also
of those half-starved, but tireless, Nebraska
home folks still standing In front of the demo
cratic p'.e counter.
Moral: It puya to be good and to "under
stand," as the aenteutioua little telegram suggests
prtsuyflalg laCaae.) mevabueta ").
There I a certain plausibility In the position
taken by Rrnator Hitchcock of Nebraska, wno has
Introduced a bill forbidding the shipment from the
I'nlted States of arms Or ammunition to be used
against countries with which thla nation Is at peace.
"Our nation stands for peace, and It seems to tie
outrsgeoua that w should be running our powder
factories and our gun works night and day to furnish
means for carrying on the present war. Those who
are making money out of this traffic will, of course,
object to thla bill, but no one else ought to. Two years
agi wa authorised the president to prohibit the ex
portation of arms and ammunition to Mexico because
wa did not feel that thla country should help to con
tinue the war there. Aa a matter of fact our govern
ment owns at the present time more than 300.000 Krag
Jorgenson rifles, better than some of the arms now
possessed by European nations. We have dlcarded
them because the army has a better weapon. Several
of the European natlona would like to buy them, and
undoubtedly Uncle Ham could get a handsome figure
for them and the treasury of the United Statea wculd
be very much benefited. But no one would propose
such an outrareoUa breach of the laws of neutrality
for tho benefit of tha whole people of the United
States, My bill propoeea to carry thla law of neutral
ity a little further and to forbid to individuals that
which Is slready unlawful for the government"
If such a measure would Indeed make for peac.
It would deserve the heartiest support. But would It?
Ijpt us consider the effect of a general practice of
forbidding the sale of arma to countries at war. Is
It not obvious that tha tendency of euch a rule woul I
lie to put an enormous premium on great armamentaT
Ifow could the moat pacific nation take tha first step
toward the reduction of outlay for weapons If It
knew that after the outbreak of war It could purchase
no more munitions of war? ,
If auch a rule were general, and the most mill
tarlstlo atates would be only too glad to help the
United States make it so, any aggressive power would
have at Its merry a Icks. well-prepared power which It
proposed to attack. Without plenty of muskets, cart
ridges, cannon, supplies of all kinds, a prolonged re
slstsnce would be Impossible. Tha only hope of a
nonmllltarlstlo state thus taken at a disadvantage
lies In quickly purchasing abroad at any cost the
supplies necessary to arm Its reserves. The abroga
tion of this well established privilege would be a meas
ure not In behalf of peace, but a - measure to
strengthen the most warlike statea in a program if
conquest. It will seldom happen thst the state which
has brought on a war will need to purchase abroad;
its purchases will have been made before tha out
break of the war for whloh It has secretly prepared
and for which It has chosen the moment If the sale
of the munitions of war la to be forbidden, let It
rather be In time of peace, for It is then that the
agents of bellicose powers are abroad laying In sup
plies for the coming coup. To forbid such a sale
after war has begun Is hot to favor peace, but to
play directly Into the nanda of those warlike nations
which ro armed to the teeth.
What could well be more to the taste of the huge
International Interests which deal In arms than a
proposal of this sort? It would mean that every na
tion must at every Instant be armed for any conceiv
able contingency, thit there must be a gun for evry
man and ammunition enough for p. war of any dura
tion. Just one country In the world has been armed
to that point: Germany alone was ready when the
hour struck. Yet such a standard of readiness, so
far as the vast accumulation of arma and ammuni
tion la concerned, would be forced upon every nation
If Senator Hitchcock's theories were carried Into gen
eral effect. In such a matter It la Impossible to bo
neutral. To refuse to sell arma favors the most
heavily armed belligerent; to aell arma favors every
state which dares to take a atep toward disarmament.
Tet though In almost every caae one side must be
favored, that ts In the very nature of things and
gives no cause for complaint, provided a consistent
rule is followed,
' Can we ask on which side the Influence of the
United Statea should be cast? The principle laid down
by Senator Hitchcock would favor not peace but
Krupptsm. So far from being a rebuke to war, It
would be a rebuke to tha nation wnton had not pre
pared for war. And under certain conditions It mlgbt
be like refusing to lend a weapon to a peaceful man
beset by thieves. Let us not be deceived by superfi
cial aspects; In the long run It will not be the war
seeking nations which need t(j buy arms abroad
after the guns have begun to shoot
