Our rulers have deliberately chos
en to perpetuate war conditions in
Europe for five months after hostil
ities in the main theaters were over.
They must pay the price, and they
are paying it now.
, With feverish effort they try to
turn the screw of repression tighter
and tighter. They starve the German
people. They starve and invade Rus
sia. They threaten a peace of force
which breaks every pledge they have
made. More force, more threats
each successive savagery necessitat
ing and justifying the next--such is
ti'eir only conception of how to utilize
isut it avails them nothing. They
cannot fulfill their promises-cannot
give us peace, cannot abolish con
scription, cannot fulfill their secret
engagements to one another, cannot
even "make Germany pay"-and
they are beginning to see that, little
by littl,e but. quite inevitably, they
will be found out.
The perpetuation of war conditions
has had one effect which they them
selves-too late for remedy- -now
frankly recognize. It has given an
immense impetus to "bolshevism."
Bolshevism: The End of an Epoch.
The diverse popular movements
which we vaguely sum up under that
phrase are spreading apace. Their
origin, of course, goes deeper down.
It is the end of an epoch that we are
witnessing. The ordering of the world
by a small section in each nation,
possessed of education, property, the
machinery of government, and the
means of creating public opinion, is
visibly coming to an end.
The great war brought the process
to a head. The gigantic shiftings of
power which have occurred since
1914 have made every thinking man
contemplate revolution, whether vio
lent or peaceable, as a familiar and
normal mode of change; while the
terrible nervous strain of the past
five years has affected the psychology
of mankind, and cut men adrift from
all their old moorings. But, while
these things are true, it is none the
less a fact that the new% movements
have been ipmmeasurably intensified
and embittered, as well as hastened,
by the reckless and unnecessary pro
longation, unemployment, armed re
pression, and uncertainty as to the
terms of peace.
lolshevism Rapidly Sprcalding.
The movements began in central
Russia because central Russia
reached the necessary stage of de
composition many months earlier
than any other country.
They are now predominant in the
vast territories of Little Russia or
They have overstepped the bound

Germany and Austria, if nothing is

life immediately, are likely to follow

And what is the attitude of the
pllied statesmen, in view of these
ments beside which the rivalries of
entente and central powers seem a
mere drop in the bucket?
T" 'hey make no' effort---if we are to
judge by outward applearance --to un
derstand the new world in which they
are living. They take no steps to en
lighten their peoples! On the con
trary, they use all the muachioiery at
their disposal to prevent that enlight
enment. While a new world is com
ing into being, they live still in the
The Old D)iplomuatists Blind.
What is alone vividly present to
their imagination is the issues of the
great war. H-low to crush Germany;
how to reap the fruits of victory;
how to satisfy the territorial claims
laid down in the secret treaties with
out too openly violating President
Wilson's principles; how to render
their domination secure throughout
the world-such are their preoccupa
tions. For all the notice they take
of it, one might suppose that human
evolution stopped on Nov. 11, 1918!
In point of fact, the world in which
they are living still is a piece of past
history. They might crush Germany
tomorrow, and they would be no
nearer the etablishiment of peace or
the reconstruction of Efirope. They
would find themselves still confront
ed with an unsolved problem, and one
much greater than that which they
thought they were disposing of.
The New and the DIeal Problem.
The problem which really con
fronts them today, though they do
not know it, is whether the social re
lationships of classes are going to be
fundamentally altered, whether the
conscious union of the working
classes of the world is going to be
What is coming in the place of the
old world we can only dimly surmise.
But the brave strivings of the people,
with or without the guidance of for
tune's favored sons, will certainly
continue. They would continue none
the less though we installed Admiral
Kolchak in Moscow.
But. limiting our view to the more
immediate future, we can easily see
that our governments will be con
fronted, even after the completest
realization of their present aims, with
something which they are wholly un
qualified to deal with. There will be
leagued against them, not a few
crushed governments and a few
cowed and exhausted people-a Rus
sia, a Hungary, a Germany-but a
great mass of population, stretching
at least from the Volga to the Rhine,
seething with social discontent and
inspired or infected (the term will
vary with the point of view) by an

responding to the old.

their standpoint is that it will sitm
nier for a while. Even so, it will con
tain within itself the perpetual tnen
ace of war; it will call for armies of
occupation: it will compel them to
remain armed, and the victorious
countries will inevitably suffer grave
economic injury through the indus
trial ruin of so large and iltmportant
a portion of the earth's surface.
On the other hand, the new situa
tion may give rise to something much
more serious. It tmay mean the imn

fought in the battle of the Wilder- I
ness, just 55 years ago today. It was t
on May 5, 1864, that the desperate I
conflict commenced, with the fede- c
erals under Grant opposed to the con- t
federates under Lee. The latter had
only 60,000 able troops with which i
to oppose the 100,000 men iunder
Grant and Meade. On the 4th of May I
the Union army crossed the Rapidan.
and the following day the issue was
joined. For sheer, desperate and doe
termined ferocity this battle. which c
lasted two days. has seldom beenl
equalled in the history of warfare
between civilized nations. The ,ter- 1
rible slaughter was indecisive and i
both sides claimned victorv. Later,
however, Grant began a flanking;
mlovmentet around Lee's right, and
the latter gradually retired toward
Spottsylvania. The federal loss dur
ing the two days of conflict allounted t ,t
to 18,000I mIen, or nearly a fifth of
those engaged, while the confederate1
loss of 11,000 was about the same
percentage of Lee's arlmy.

The first municipal whipping post
in England was ordered set up by the
corporation of Doncaster. for the pur
pose of "punishing vagrants and
st.ildy beggars," 206 years ago today.
Whipping as a punishment for the
unemployed had long been in vogue,
Loth in England and the American
colonies. but under the statute of
Henry VIII. the victims were to be
"tied to the end of a cart naked, and
beatsn with whips throughout the
market town, till the body should be
bloody by reason of such whipping."
The cart-tail mode of whipping en
joyed a long vogue, in New England
as well as England, but it was gradu
-lly supplated by the whipping post.
The latter is still a legal form of
punishment in Delaware. Queen
Elizabeth mitigated, the punishment
to the extent cf ordering that the
victims be stripped of their cloth
ing only from the waist upward. A
