but then I remembered what t' old
k'.hop said when I war confarmod. an
chapel with Ben Tlllett: It was before
his ordination. Afterward he was ap
pointed to the Christ Church Oxford
Mission In Poplar. "Tlllett was lectur
ing at the Dock gates, while I was
preaching platitudes in the same
place. Ho was threatening a strike,
and the Dock directors were smiling at
his thunder. In a few days the place
was In an uproar. Thousands of poor,
starved dockers struck: the better paid
stevedores came out In sympathy.
"I threw myself Into the stream,
though my Ignorance of the exact Is
sue prevented me from bolng a leader.
I collected 700 to feed the iitrlkers,
and lost a peer's annual subscription
to the mission of 80 by doing so. I

In tho Old Book,' replied the agitator."
It Is not often that we have a strike

alternate spasms of reckless spending
and riotous living and of hard work

queer bohemian settlements that ore
to be found In New York; artists,

tune tellers nnd derelicts living under
one roof. The men In this community
nre interesting and pnomlso better
than tho hero, but they and the rather
matlo notes and treaties, capable of
revision and reformulation, fits the
fluid situation. Sound In principle and
equitable in operation, It failed in ap
plication because it Included In the
compact some nations whose actual
policies are not In agreement with
the principles professed. "Tho Ualted
States Government got the Powers to
agree to tho Hay Doctrine, and then
seemed to think It had done Its part.
Tho doctrine was left for other Powers
to enforce, or to enforce Itself."
After the Kuropean war the reor
ganization of the Far East, now under
way, will bo conducted more openly.
Whatever form that reorganisation
may take, It is bound to affect deeply
the American prestige and fortunes.
If wo endeavor to exert Influence
without accepting responsibility, wc
shall bo shoved aside. "Moral elo
quence" will not be enough: "America
will not be invited to Join a consort
ium, America will not be permitted to
Join a consortium, unless she will as
sume her full measure of responsibil
ity and pay her share of the costs.
She will not bo allowed to pose as an
International altruist benignly utter
ing moral platitudes and fixing moral
standards for other nations to set their
conduct by, claiming an eaual position
and taking a goodly share of any bene
fits that come, and evading the risks."
America cannot continue to play her
part of the last five years, of "a
dilettante meddler" in China.
The author sounds a clear warning:
America has gone in international
politics as far as it. is possible to go
on credit If we do not begin to "de
liver the goods" our influence must
grow less. And the need of the warn
ing Is clearer when It Is accompanied
by reminder that our greatness is not
an unexplalnable product of the blind
operations of chance, but Is duo to
definite circumstances and forces. Wc
have great natural resources, and wc
have gainVd a population big nnd
smart enough to use them because our
political system has offered to the peo
ple better opportunities and bigger
advantages than they could havo In
other countries. For the continuance
of audi desirable conditions there can
be no other guarantee than that
which spTlngs from assurance of con
tinued opportunity, nn assurance that
must rest upon the Internal and ex
ternal policies of our Government.
If, as time passes and conditions
change, other countries offer their citi
zens more than we offer of freedom
of opportunity and better protection,
economic and industrial as iwell as po
litical, thofo countries nro bound to
gain at our expense. "If." for ex
ample,' "l.'nlted States authority nnd
protection are withdrawn from tho
Philippines the principal American
sons sought in the Netherlands a ref
uge from oppression,
Bkcat picks Dr. Morris up on
"schooner," given in his "Historical
Outlines of English Accidence" as one
of 1,300 words borrowed from the
Dutch. Ho says: "It Is conceded that
overal sea terms are really Dutch. Dr.
Morris Instances 'boom,"crulse,"sloop,'
'yacht' (Dutch boom'krulzon,' 'Jagt,'
older spelling 'Jacht'), as well as tho
word 'schooner.' But tho last lnatance
Is IJcorrecf, the original name was
'souoner,' and originated In America,
hut was afterward turned into
'nchooner' because such was tho Dutch
spelling of the word after tlicv had
borrowed it from 11s." "Scoon" was
provincial English for "to glldo over
water." "Schooner" has no etymolog
ical sense In Dutch.
from u paper by W. H. Carpenter
on "Dutch Contributions" In Modem
Philology, July, 130H, Mr. de Vrles cites
examples of the perversion of Dutch
words In tho American Colonies. "Cold
slaw" or "coleslaw" Is from Dutch
"knol," cabbage, and "slaa," salad.
"Cruller" goes back to Dutch "krullen."
to curl, "Dopo" Is traced to Dutch
"doop," sauce, gravy. "Stoop," the
cntrunce platform at tho door of a
house, Is "stoop." "Snoop" is from
the Dutch "snoepen."
The Hudson and Mohawk valleys
have nn Interesting vocabulary of
Dutch descent. "Blummle." flower, blos
som. Is "bloempje" in its native place.
"Hoonder,' to brush away or drive
away, began as 'oenderen," to scrub,
to brush. "I am fease of it," say the
New Tork Dutchmen, where those of
Holland My "vlea" of whatever hap
pens to disgust them. "It is too grllly
to go-out" means that the day Is "raw,"
Dutch ''arllHs" which has a Lewis
Carroll look. "Mollyklte" for "fool
Ishness" Is a phonetic rendition of
"malllghcld." softness, mildness. weaK
ne.s. When soused pigs' knuckles aro
called "pochlos" the puzzled traveller
should know that Dutch feet are
"pootjes." A hlb becomes a ' slob" be
cause the Hollander calls It "slobbe."
Mr. de Vrles makes opportunity to
write with patriotic zeal on Holland's
l.lKtnrv of political decline nnd re
covcry, as well as of her language and
her works In letters.

Bupert Hughes, author of the newly
published "The Thirteenth Command

other novels, Is spending his summer as a
soldier, not as nn author. He went to

Hamlin Garland, having sen his new

authors are to be neighbors for the rest
of the summer.
Albert Blgelow Paine, author of "Mark
Twain: A Biography," has been spending
several weeks In Bronxvllle going over
the proofs of a new "Hollow Tree" book
to b published In the autumn. This
week he goes to Lyndonvllls, Vt., where
he will spend a month at Speedwell

only a story and attic wooden building

The Jfexlean War.
Amid the excitement and the vast
amount of misinformation attending
tho transfer of the militia to the Mexi
can border, Far.vham Bishop has ren
dered a service to the public In writing
n popular nnd readable account of
:ir J'iMf War v:lth itcxicn (Charles
Scrlbner's Sons), in which he embodies
the resultH of critical research and
dees not hesitate to shatter ancient
Idols. The more Interesting portions
we have found to be the sketch of the
early history, ending with the settle
ment and annexation of Texas, and the
explanations of the ways in which
tho Mexican troubles affected party
politic. In this story President James
K. Polk stunds out as good dual of a
man nnd his administration as a turn
ing point. In accordance with tho
opinion of the more recent historians.
