un automatic Dre alarm system, which,
when a box ls "pulled," cuises the
fin- hell to strike thc number of Ibo
box from which tile alarm ls sent In,
und thus gives the location or thc
lire, lt ha:; been suggested that the
local ll rf department might KO ar
range that when un alarm or fire ls
Kent In the bell will fl mt strike the
ward in which the blaze is, and then
go ahead with the general alarm.
With an automatic alarm system, as
is generally known, there are a number
of boxea or stations placed all over
the town from which alarms of lire
may be Bcntjn by pulling down n
levor encased on one of these boxes.
These stations are numbered, und
?fretty too? tho general public learns
tho numbers or the various stations
and where they are located. When
au alarm ls sent In from one or these
stations, tho fire bell strikes the
number of the station from which this
call ls rccolved. And tho public: knows
immediately in what part of the city
tlie fire Is located.
A* alarma are now sounded In An
derson, one does not have an oppor
tunity of knowing where the Ure ls

bell ringing 4B ended. Tho bell is

alie has been doing, ignoring our rep
resentations in behalf of tho sea rights
of neutrals and socking to confuso
the tase with irrelevant matters, It
may bo years before the issue is set
Bomo progress has been made, to
bo sure, since the president's noto of
protest waB forwarded on May 13. Tho
Germans have modified the stand they
took in their first war zone proclama
tion. They no longer wave away all
neutral ships and disclaim all respon
sibility for "unfortunate accidents."
Thc German government has reversed
lbj attitude and declared, in its note
of May 31, that "it has no Intention
of submitting neutral ships In he war
zone to attacks by a submarine,"
and in a subsequent note has given
assurances that "American ships will
not be hindered In tho prosecution of
legitimate shipping, and the live..; of
American citizens in neutral vessels
shall not be placed in jeopardy."
These concessions, however, arc
trivial in comparison with 'what thu
United States has demanded as its in
alienable right under the law of na
tions, and the conditions! attending
them aro Intolerable. Wo cannot ac
cept tho arrogant restrictions on our
commerce that Germany bas pro
scribed In bor last note. Particularly
wc cannot tolorato any more palter

CAR A MK li IC A DEVELOP A DTK
Tho Germen dye Industry repre
sents an investment of $400,000,000,
giving employment to about 60,000
peoplo and producing 800 shades and
combinations, according tb an article
by Mr. Frederick L. Wagner, an en
gineer, who ^ has visited Germany
many times l? order to make a close
personal study of all the chemical in
dust rles of thut country, lu this
week s issue nf the Manufacturers
llocord ni Ualtiimoro. According to
Mr. Wugncr, the German dye Industry
.has boen exceedingly profitable, pay
ing dividendo from SIC to '?0 per cent.,
und laying aside from ?IO to 40 per
cent, on tiie capital Invested for Im
provements und as a "war" fund. Out
or accumulated profits tho German
dye plants have written oft the entire
cost of their works so that amortiza
tion and Interest need no longer be
considered in their bookkeeping. As
showing what will be necessury for
America to ?lo in c ompeting willi Ger
man dyestuffs makers in tho develop
ment of a dye industry in this coun
try, it is said thal one German plant
employing 10,000 people employ 800
young university men under a chief
chemist in the research laboratory,
paying them from $1 to $1.2.", per day,
their future advancement depending
upon tiieir own elTorts. All Gorman
banks of consequence huvc associated
with them highly-trained technical
experts, whose sole business it ts to
examine and report to tho bank's
muuugor upon the merits of uny in
vention or any manufacturer's claim
for credit. Tliis financial cooperation
in connection with tho government
aid, bas brought about the develop
ment of thc dye industry to its pres
ent dominating position in thc trade,
as well a? tho development of other
German industries. As to the pos
sibility of America developing a dye
Industry, .\fr. Wagner says of the Ger
man Industry with which we will
have to compete:
"Organization is pre-eminently the
correct title fov this activity, because
thc Germans organize a chemical
trade campaign in thc same manner
ns they organize for war, appointing
various committees, who constantly
seek new markets as well as raw ma
terial; who creato a demand for the
finished product; who establish agen
cies all over the world; who seek
loopholes In foroign patents with thc
idea of making use of them if pos
sible; who have had thc German pat
not laws so framed as to almost ex
clude thc foreigner, all of this' being
done under the careful supervision of
their government, assisted with the
aid of State bounties, or subsidies,
Under theso circumstances Mr.
Wagner point,? out the cooperation
that must bo glvon by bankers and
by tho government if permanent suc
cess is to attend "thc efforts to devel
op dye-making In America.
LYNCHING ON THE INCREASE,
In thc first six months of this year,
there hnvo been in tho United States
34 lynching, 13 or more than in the
saine period of 1914. And one State
In particular has distinguished it olf
in this record of dishonor. Georgia
has had sight lynching bee:-, ncurly
ono-fourth of the total. number.
It ls noticeable that very few of
these mob killings have been in pun
ishment or retaliation for tho "un
speakable crime." Only seven mcu of
tho 34 were acculxid of attacking wo
men. Six of them were negroes, and
ono was white. Most of the other 27
wero guilty of not hu g more than
robbery or retty theft. And not all
of them were colored, by any moana.
One-third of tho 27 wore white men.
Lynching used to bo defended as
tho only means of deterring negroes
from assaulting white women. If that
was a sufficient justification onco, it
is no longer. Tho very criminality
of tho method has wrought a sort of
moral deterioration in communities
tolerating or excusing thc practice
until tho ultimate, extra-legal pen
alt- is applied unhesitatingly to tho
punishment of potty crimes and mern
misdemeanors, and to whites as well
as blacks. It Is a good object lesson
showing thc folly of ever going be
yond tho law.

Speaking of neutrality, we know of
a farmer living west of the city who
refused to sell a fine pair of mules to
a fellow who was out birying mules
and horses to be shipped to the al
lies. "I could have gotten $.000 for
thc pair of mulan" he said, "and I
needed the money mighty had, hut I
don't believe it is right for the United
States to bo shipping munitions ->t
war to the belligerent nations and I
don' believe I ought to sell my mules
or anything else that will contribute
to the continuation of this war."
