The rerslatence of the dmorrals In cinlining
the avoidance of war by tbe 1'nltcd Stntra to be
due aolely to the prceldent'e ollrlpa doea thnm
but little credit. AStuteneaa, once an attribute
of the leaders of !ie president's party, aretng to
have been abandoned In a denperate attempt to
support bis popularity by arraying bini tn tbe
mantle of the prophet whose voice has eaved his
nation. This pretense Is too dlnplianoug to de
reive anybody. President Wilson undoubtodly
la tn favor of peace, but In this be hns the unani
mous support of all bis country. No one wants
war, and all are eager to avoid It, and no coun
try wants us to be at war either wth them or
against them. Tho most active and effeotlve
support the president has had in his efforts to
preserve peace has come from his political op
ponents. In hi momenta of trial, when tho
Clouds had gathered thick over the nation's
psth, the president was upheld by press and
public, without regard to political division.
Any effort to make political capital out of this
national Impulse will not succeed. Tbe presi
dent'! administration will be tried on other
Issues, of which there are plenty, and against
which the democrats are Just now hopeless of
preparing adequate defense.
Making the Loan Look Good.
Fiscal agents for the Allies aro JubI now en
gaged In the Interesting work of securing sup
port from the Investing public for the half-bllllon-dollar
lonn to bo floated on this side of
the ocean. Tbe Int'-rest rate has been fixed at
such figure as to make the issue quite attractive
as an Investment, a governmont bpnd yielding
R'.i per cent being uncommon In tbeso days of
plethoric purses. Other features have been
added to serve as Inducements to tho dollars
that are so ardently desired. Especially Is the
press agent's work being well done, so that men
of means are being appealed to from every pos
sible angle. If the money Is not charmed out
of the pockets of tbe public, It "HI not be be
cause the campaign was not skilfully planned
and adroitly carried out. The money-masters
of Wall street know their business, as has been
demonstrated on many another occasion.
What Our Chemists Can Do.
Ilerent events have taught Anirricaus mod
esty, If not humility, when It comes to talking
about war. The cultured nations of Europe
have shown us such wonderful ways of obliter
ating whole armies, of permanently altering the
landscape, of overwhelming crowded cities and
demolishing stately vesels, that we have lost
some of our natlonnl cockiness. However, here
cornea some sustenance for our self-respect,
direct from a meeting of chemists at San Fran
cisco. In closing the soKsion of a gas congress
one of the experts pointed out tbat anything tbe
Europeans may have achieved Is also possible
for the Americans. Jay, more; he said that by
the time war could be declared on us, and the
fighting actually commenced, some of the pro
cesses now being exploited, such as the use of
chlorine gas, would be obsolete. Instead of tbat
crude, coarse method of asphyxiating soldier,
we may have our choice between arsenuretted
hydrogen plain, or combined with hydrocyanic
geld, the effect,! of which would bo to do away
with any Invading force tas completely as was
tha army of Sennacherib, when "the Death Angel
breathed in the face of tbe foe as be passed."
Thus Is the genius of American science and
tbe fruits of American research brought to the
relief of any apprehensions tbat might have been
slowly consuming the over-anxious public. Whllo
yet we have our chemists and our gaa mains, we
are comparatively safe.

Armed Neutrality a Failure.
Such meager Information as seeps through
from the Balkans serves to support the conclu
sion that armed neutrality is an empty phrase
there, so far as maintenance ot peace Is con
cerned. At any rate, It hut no force In binding
the' turbulent peoples of the little countries tn
tbe hinterland of Europe to any preservation of
tranquility, Bulgaria's moUlllxatlon was fol
lowed by similar preparations in Greece and the
threat tbat Koumanta would also get ready for
eventualities. These have y-ansplrcd, tn border
clashes between Serbs and Uu'.gara, which may
be but the prelude to the general engagement.
Each aide to the general war has Its special
reasons for Involving Die Balkan nations in the
struggle, aud each has connived and Intrigued
to gain the support sought. To the Oermans
It meant access to and possible aid to the Turks;
to tbe Quadruple Euteute it niont another op
portunity to attack the central allies. Tbtsae
ends, minor in comparison to some cf tbe more
outstanding features of the war, are important
factors in tbe general strategy, and the partici
pation of tbe Balkans in the conflict has been
inevitable for months. So the bollowncss of
"armed neutrality" la sounded by tbe actual

contributed to more by some certain
Silver Creek partiea than any ona else
and In my experlenoe I have never rend
any of their articles that over had a
good word for any en or anything, and
I would suggeat that these parties re
frain from saying anything at all when
they cannot say something good, and It
certainly ought to benefit the community
