Identify The IlEnALD us The Hes
ald. It Is a remarkable thing we re
peat, perhaps the most remarkable
thing in nit Journalistic history that
After fourscore years of separate ex
istence two such highly individualized
nhd strongly contrasted offspring of
the press should Join hands and go
'out together this morning as one.
That it may be n prosperous union,
are bure, Is the wltJli and hope of
the friends of both. That It shall be
a union profitable to the friends of
both Is tho determined purpose of the
proprietor nnd responsible conductor
$f the united newspapers.
' He Is fully awako to the auspicious
circumstance, so seldom obtaining In
jibe caeo of newspaper consolidations,
hat In this particular conjunction The
Heeald Is able to bring to The Sun
traditions of method and distinctive
features' which It has needed, while
The Sun brings to The Herald differ
ent but equally important traditions
dud qualities which would have been
nt any time- n valunblo accession to
Jthe resources of that establishment.
- This Is not exactly the proper occa
sion or' place for elaborate self-analy-'flls,
but a quick sketch of 6ome of the
distinguishing characteristics of Tie
Hebald and The Sun may be permis
sible. When Day nnd Bennety wore
competing In the middle thirties they
jointly nnd competitively overthrew
and demolished nnd sent to the scrap
heap a style and system of dally
Journalism which would havo no
charm whatever to the .modern news
paper reader except as a curiosity of
srchrcology. The thpenny blanket
ehects of tho period hdd been, giving
their Innocent patrons little or no
news, Ko.mo editorial expression,
much of It about more or less negli
gible mutters, a miscellany sadly des
titute of human Interest, nnd n vo
luminous Volunteer correspondence
mainly on subjects of concern to the
writer rather than to tho reader. Not
a paper was sold on tho streets and
tho progress of the printed blanket
from printer to subscriber was of the
most leisurely description.
Day started In with Ills 81 put
his price nt one cent instead of six,
deviled the newsboy system; and the
first nowsboy that ever sold n paper
on the streets of New York was his
ItrnNAni) Flaherty, afterward famous
as Daiinky Williams, tho comedian.
Day had from tho beginning a keen
perception of human Intercut nnd of
tho amusing, both in his local report
lug nnd bin editorial writing nnd also
In his scissored matter, and he devel
oped those qualities as he piled up cir
culation; but ho never showed the
slightest conception of news perspec
tive or of appetite for the big things
for which the Hknnettr reached forth
nil over tho world with lavish enter
prise and masterly activity. The
Heaches, who succeeded him, were
moro formidable competitors of Ben
nett In this respect; but while- they
cmnlntcd tho methods of their rival
In news collection they really never
approached the Herald's efficiency.
When Dana came In, In 1SCS, nnd
mnde The Sun which most persons
now living remember as The Sun of
he past, he Introduced fine scholar
"hip, a mnrvellous appreciation of hu
mor and satire, n vigorous editorial
style nnd a perfectly definite knowl
edge of that which he editorially de
sired to accomplish. Rut his Idea of
news enterprise was selective rather
than Impartially comprehensive, like
that of the Bennetts.
When the senior Bennett started
The Hltui.d, In competition with The
Sun of Ben Day in tho Held of lower
priced Journalism, ho defined in prac
ticnl achievement that theory and that
tradition which made his paper the
foremost news getter In the world.
Non-partisan reporting of all the facts
of interest, whether In Brooklyn or In
Bokhara, unflinching expenditure to
securo the sensational, minute atten
tion to social and aesthetic intelligence
of every sort, were more In his mind
as his power and prestige increased
than any attempt to Influence man
kind by editorial pursuasion. It is 11-
ustratUo of the elder Bennett's gen
ius tnat on the second day of his
Hekald's appearance he Introduced the
feature of a full stock market report.
In a hundred other ways he ex
panded the function of the dally
press; nnd although ho had thousands
of Imitators who gradually made com
mon property of his Instinctive meth
ods and bold Innovations, he remained
to the end of his life the master and
the chief of the art of news Journal-
Ism. His son preserved the continuity
of the tradition, Improving upon Its
practical application ns material pros
perity and mechanical devices enabled
the Improvement, and adding refine
ments .of perception nnd process of

forth on tho earth. Her nvcragc tern

to be 130 tlegrecB Fahrenheit, Is not

Dutch Opinion on !tho Itcfusal to
Surrender William Iliilicnzollcrn.
The Dutch people, as their opinion
is reflected In the responsible press
of their country, support with prac
tical unanimity and warm enthusiasm
the refusal of their Government to
surrender William Hoiienzolleiin to
the Allies. A study of the utterances
of the principal newspapers shows
that on this subject there is no seri
ous difference among them. Thesen

This authentic epitome of tho out-
decision of the hlghc-t Interest nnd
moment to the civilized world Is Im
portant for Its revelation of the Dutch
character. It Inspires Interest also
because of a legitimate speculation to
which it gives rise:
Hud Kngland been n neutral country
In the war, and had the former Ger
man Emperor made his escape to Eng
lish' territory, and had his enemies
requested of Great Britain tin-surrender
of his person for prosecution
under Iho unwritten code before a
tribunal erected for the purpose of
considering the accusations against
him, and. finally, had tho Government
of Great Britain replied to this re-
finest as Holland did reply, would the
British newspaper pre, with its ad
mlrable record ns a servant of free
dom behind It, have been less rigor
ous, less nearly unanimous or les-s
manly In Its Indorsement of tho Gov
ernment's stand than the Dutch press
has been on this occasion?
We are convinced that under simi
lar circumstances the press of Eng
land would not pursue a course in
any material detail different from that
which the press of Holland has fol
lowed In treating tho Dutch Govern
ment's refusal to surrender the former

of our Host nnd Saviour, Jesus Christ,
Ills commonwealth ia tho united homes,
of which Ho Is Head. IIo who docs not
unlto with tho organized church mem
bership, good and bad as they arc, Is not
taking his placo in tlio rank und fllo of
Christ's army. Men often say, and as if
It wero original with them, that It Is
possible for them to be Christian out
side tho church as well'ns in. They may
bo likened unto the men who refuse to
submit to command, preferring to fight
In their own way ns soldiers of fortune.
They often put up a, brate light, but
they are not a part of tho uniformed
ho.t of tho Captain of our Salvation.
Guerrilla warfaro lacks in spirit of co
operation what it lacks In science. And
tho Lord's Prayer is not on Individual
Tho atrenBth of tho Church Is main
tained by united worship, mutual pray
ers, common labors and material sac
rifice. In union and harmony thero is
strength, nnd especially in the Church
Besides seeking1 a common salvation
in Christ tho Church has a priceless
value to everyday life In creating Ideals,
applying motives and directing ener
gies and aspirations.
That thero Is a freer, less Pharisaical
religion to be found otitside the organ
ized church body. Is a popular concert
tlon which tho ministry has generously
conceded or willingly nllowed to go un
challenged. Dr. Wishart, tho recently
elected president of Wooiter University,
made tho beat epigrammatic statement
regarding this I have heard: "There Is
Plenty of religion outsldn the ohurch
and there Is plenty of heat outsldo the
stove. But when the fire goes out the
heat is gone."
When the altar fires of a nation go
out, when homespun religion in Amor
lea Is supplanted by religion a la mode,
when tho soul of tho nation is lost then
will come tho deluge. Sin, not material
weakness. Is the nrch enemy of a nation.
Wo hold the balanco of power In the
world by wealth. No nation ever be
came so wealthy beforo and survived
the load of its own wealth. The letter
from which this text was written has n
contemporaneous background remark
ably like that of tho Christianity of to
day. The background of tho book of
Philemon Is gono and the purity of the
religion has endured. Here was n na
tion within a nation. The Christian
body politic. This was not a parasite
within the empire of Home, but a lieart.
Tho heart lived on and the flcirh is gone.
Sin Is tho arch enemy of the home,
church and nation to-day. Tho ever
lasting nun, or saian, take your
cholca; call it weakness, mistake,
error, propaganda or what not. And,
thus being camouflaged, sin stalks tho
avenues of the republic, n wolcomo
guest or .a supposedly harmless abnor
mality. Cicero has pronounced our
Judgment In pronouncing Home's':
"What now survives of that primitive
morality which Ennlus described as
tho safeguard of. Homo? What shall I
say of the men? Morality Is perishing
through tho want of good men. It Is
our fault and not our misfortune,
therefore, that our republic is now but
a tradition nnd a name."
Thero lies tho rub. Wo speak of
misfortune, luck, exterior Influences.
Fault in the word, but best known and
dealt with as sin.
Tho book of Philemon is one chap
ter long. Head It nnd you will see
how tho Blblo is called tho charter of
all free peoples. Do you sco how sla
very was dealt a blow by this single
story of Oncslmus that no army could
deal? Read the names within tho
twenty-five verses: Philemon, a first
century millionaire; Timothy, a young
Greek; Apphla, a woman of high so
cial casta; Archippus, a ltoman caval
ryman; Onesimus, a Phrygian slave;
Epaphras of Collosa;; Marcus, n Cyp
rian chronicle keeper; Lucas, n phy
sician ; Arlstarchus, a Thessalonlan ;
Demas, nn .unknown follower, nnd
Paul, tho apostla of Jewry. And what
binds them together? Christ. Herb
Is a league of nations! And tho whole
current of these traditions flows
through tho home, a leaven nmong
Christianity, .patriotism, loyalty, be
gin In tho home. Tho homo has been
hit the hardest In these, days. And the
clearing house, tho assembly of souls,
tho Christian body politic. Is the Church.
How Is It with tho church that is in
thy house? It. Lincoln Long,

"Listen, Lcscarboura, nnd you'll know
how an original and vnj curious thing
can bo dono with them, After being
cooked tho feet are boned and bulled
again In somo of their own broth, along
with whatever trimmings you have on

smoked tongue, ham, &is Tlio whole
Is well seasoned with various ground
spices, and shsh a llttlo brandy, Tho
composition Is then poured In a mould
of a plg'fl head shnpo nnd allowed to

headcheese, Tho remoulded form, which ,
should bo gelatinous and quite,, nrm

thick dcml-glacc, decorated and adorned
with two glass eyes nnd two mock tusks
made out of whlto fat, thus Imltutlnc
"Truffled pigs' feet arc another dell

"Tho Italians bone the pigs' feet raw

'zamplno.' It keeps for years and
makes very good eating, when boiled
with beans, lentils, cabbage. &c."
lly that tlmo all tho feet were tied up
nnd deposited in a big steam copper
caldron and covered with' water, and
wholo spices, whole peppers, cloves, soup
greens, salt, Ac, wcro added to it.
"Tills requires at least thrtJ hours
to cook propejly," declared Mr. Tlume
'Allowed to cool in their own broth
and ,kept In tho Icebox, they'll keep
freslt uulto a long while In tholr Jelly.
When needed for broiling they aro taken
out, unwrapped and split In the middle
and rolled In dry bread crumbs, .l tew

with a little sweet oil, nnd they nro

SOUTHERN WOMEN FIRST.
Convcrso College Ahead of Smith In a
Drive for Money.
From the Journal and Carolina Spartan,
Seven thousand nlumnaj of Smith C ol-le-jc,
nt Northampton, Mass., will start
it drive next Saturday for a fund of
14,000,000. "Half pf this sum," wo arc
told by The Sun, "Is to come from the
alumna themselvnf, tlio remainder from
the friends of the college and the public'
generally." Then The Sun blundered
Into tills statement, which, as it claims
to shine for all, It will tako tho earliest
opportunity of conectlng with the
"It Is the first popular campaign ever
undertaken in the United States to raise
funds for a woman's college." "
The Scn of course has heard of
Spartanburg, S. C, the most United
States place in the United States. If
The Sun had been tho diligent reader
of tho Spartanburg newspapers It should
have been nnd ns It should ba from
this time henceforth it would have
known that one of tho finest col
leges for women In the United States
Is Converse College, at Spartanburg. It
would v.ia known further that a drive
for an addition of $250,000 to the endow
ment of Converse College was conducted
in this town about two months ago, and
that in six days the drive went over the
top with several thousands "to enrry
So that the Smith College drive is not
the first drive that was over undertaken
In the United States to raise funds tor
a woman's college.
Sunday Iiuscball Opposed.
To the Editor of The Sun-Herald
Sfr: In reply to tho letter signed "Pan"1
about Assemblyman John G. Downs's
bill, which would prevent professional
Viseball games on Sunday, I wish to
say that such a bill has everything to
commend It, and it should be made a
law as soon as possible, as there Is no
excuse for legalizing Sunday playing
I maintain that practically every one
can witness tho gamo on Saturday after
noon It he chooses.
Sunday should be maintained as a
day of quietness and, tho State should
never sanction public games on that
day. C. D. G.

To the Editor of The'Sun-Herald
Sir: When our country Is In the critical
condition It Is to-av, wo can ill afford
to lose the services of so able and pa
triotic a representative as Senator
Wadsworth, and for so trivial1 a reason
as that ho voted according to his best
Judgment, nnd I feel sure the majority
of the women of tlio State feci as I do,
that be will be moM cordially supported
vhen the time comes to vote.

America's Inferf3t In tho Treaty.
To THE EDtTOR OF THE StlN-HERAU
Sir: Why Is the ratification of the"
peace treaty of such vital Importance?
If all of German territory were burled
under an Ico sheet or covered with
twenty feet of volcanic ash would the
United States be seriously Injured?
They owe us neither reparation nor In
demnity. In what way will the ratifica

not In the way of reduced prices for
