M. Frank is not tho issuo in tho hu
miliating outrnge that has been per
petrated on Georgia by a gnng whose
lust for blood is matched only by tho
degreo of cowardice thoy resorted to
in satisfying thla thirst. The over

the reversion to barbarism and tho
ilondlHh clamor for vongrance that

phases of tho case to he dep'.ored,

The most threatening and the most
sinister aBpocit of tho horrible nrTair
is tho uucouqucrublp lust for blood
that hold so many thousands of peo
ple on this man's trail for nearly
threw years and tho fires of which
lUHt wer? nover' allowed to smoulder
for being fanned by propoganda of
tho most open and the most shame
less kind. Every bit as guilty as Ute
men who adjusted the hangman's
nooso about Frank's nock and drew
the rope that sent his body dangling
in the air are the people who con
tinually agitated the matter so openly,
through the public prints, by the dem
onstration against the governor who
commuted the prisoner's sentence,
and In other ways equally as breazon.
If aomethlng is not done to curb a

p.'uacboa anarchy openly In public '

alined at tho very fouvlatlona of the

easy matter to start a campaign 1

It Is a beautiful case of poetic Jus
tice thut is now on exhibition In the
Balkans. Shakespeare himself couldn't
have figured it out hotter. Bulgaria,
betrayed by her allieB aftor the first
Balkan war and robbed of tho fruits
of her victories, n,ow holds their fate
In her hand.
At tho close of the war, when Tur
key was prostrate, and the Balkan
confederates were kept from finishing
her only by the Interposition of tho
big powers, Crecce and Scrvia de
manded from Bulgaria a largo part of
tho Macedonian territory which they
had pledged to her In case of victory.
Whe l aho refused to yield it, they
made war on her, taking what they
wanted and killing moro of her boI
diers than the Turks had killed. At
the K?me time Roumanla, taking ad
vantage of Bulgaria's weakness, de
manded a slice of territory aa a re
ward for not having attacked her
when her back was turned, and Bul
garia had to surrender it
In bitterness Bulgaria bided her
time'?and that time has comp with
unexampled celerity. Sorvla, against
whom Bhe has the bitterest grievance,
is expecting a great Gorman-Aus
trian "drive" which may crush her
unless she obtains powerful aid.
Roumanla Is willing to help Servla,
by making a drive at Austria-Hun
gary on her own account, but Rou
manie doesn't dare take the field until
Bhe knows what Bulgaria will do.
Greece wants to Join the allies and
enlarge lier territory at Tnrkey'a ex
pense, out hesitates to do so from fear
And what does Bulgaria dot She
calmly says that she'd like to Join the
allies and dispatch an army against
Constantinople, to take that great
prize for Russia?but she couldn't
think of starting until Servla and
Greece anu Roumanla given her back
what they atolo from her two years
ago. And If tho allies?who, by tho
way, acquiesced in the robbery?want ,
her assistance, all they nave to do is
to make ht>r Balkan neighbors give
up the loot.
Aa for Germany and Austria, whom
she regards aa largely responsible

this basis?.If they can give her bot- i
ter guarantees than the allies c*n\<:

Blockade of Raw Materials
Makes Economic Move
'Berlin, Aug. 11.?(Associated Press
Correspondence.)?Since the impor
tation of textile raw materials into
Germany has been almost entirely
stopped, the army authorities have
perfected a plan or economic schedule
by the terms of which the textile in;
dustry of Germany will be regulated
and controlled. It has been worked
out with* a careful consideration of
the supplies of tevtlles now on hand
and with a view to. making them last
as long as possible.
This Is to be accomplished, In part,
by forbidding for the time being the
production of luxuries, and suiting
production of all oii.tr articles to the
supply on hand. Sudh a regulation
in connection with cotton goods al-.
ready exists and is working well.
No general prohibition of textile
production has been laid down but
the list of articles whicl. may be made
has been restricted so 'ar as possible
to the absolut el ;- necessary?as for
instance personal and bed linen,
clothes and linings. It Is also stipu
lated what kind of material these
things may be. made of, the coarser
being substituted for the finer here
tofore in use. Also the use of cot
ton is to be enlarged somewhat so
that the llst Of textiles may bp ac
cording circumscribed. . .
Regulation of wool production is
also in prospect, probably differing
somewhat from the rules governing
cotton, but in any event prescribing
what kinds of woolen may be used
for given articles.
A restriction of the flax and hempt
Industry Is also planned.
Army contracts are not to be gov
erns dby any of the new rules. Those
who have already made contracts with
the military or nrval authorities may
carry them out Whether or not the
production of the articles in question
