nordes ot grafters and its badly cooked
and insufde'ent meals stick out convlnc

Rven more confessedly bellicose than

new volume, "How Germany Makes War"
(George Dbrnn Company, New York), by
General Frtcderkh on Bernhardl, a con

who Is suspected of holding views rep
resentative of the militarist mind In the
German Empire, few there will be who
can read the book and still adhere in

State, was forced Into the present Eu
A tone of steadfast fntth In the sanctity
of the entire business of wnr-making, n
calm certainty In the right and the wis

an Impression that the author's belief In

of his bouII that war rs a creed Is so
obviously proper ai to defy illiputc.

As n guide to tho most Intelligent lead

That tho present war, foreshadow eii
throughout tho book, though It was writ

veiled admlsrlon. "The Triple Alliance,"
ho says, "Is purely defensive." And a
llttlo later. "Neither Austria nor Italy Is
bound to suprtort us."
German "kultur" Is gracefully acknowl
edged by tho author. "Wo ourselves,"
he says, "are conscious of being a power

Imposes upon us the obligation of p.iUng

Stories From The Forum
Collections ot short stories are seldom
made nowadajs, and few of the collec

tho one published by Mitchell Kcnnerley
under tho tltto ot 'Torum Stories." The
itorles Inue appeared In The Forum dur

editor claims, II) ot the best stories which
America can produce todaj. No author
Is represented more than once, and tho
result is a line arlety of subject and
One of the things noticeable about the
collection K that. In spite of tho line

Is such n donl of entertainment In them.

-- Northwest Again
AsalA returning to his favorite Cana
dian Northwest and Hm picturesque
Mounted Police for his latest romance,
Ralph Connor has slven us in "The
Patrol ot the Sun Dance Trail" (George
Dofan Company. New York), a thrilling
tale that surpasses "Corporal Cameron"
, ot "Tho Sky Pilot" In swift action, but
' tacks tho subtle human touch that made
the latter such a success.
In. his latest book; Connor reintroduces
Corporal Cameron as the leading flgure,
and several ot his main characters have
also been met In his work of that title.
The tale deals with the efforts of a
3Ioux chieftain from the United States,
aided by the rebel leader Itlel, to foment
a rebellion among- the half-breeds and
Indian tribes of Northwest Canada.
Two" love stories, one, strange to say,
between a roan and his wife, are inter
noven throughout the tale, while Inci
dents that now form part of Canada's
history and development are diawn upon
for the "background of the story.
Briefly, Corporal Cameron, who has
married his former nurse, has left the
Northwest Mounted Police and settled
down as r rancher. Dissension among
the half-breeds headed by Itlel has
reached the Indian tribes and a general
uptftrine 'is feared: Cameron Is Induced
to. act as a, scout by the commissioner in
charge, and lias several encounters with
the Sioux chief who Is arousins the
Uarmdiari tribes to revolt Twice he Is
, made a capuve, but escapes by the aid
of a, son of the Sioux chief, -whom his
wife bad saved from being u cripple
and tiose gratitude Is unbounded. Along
a wsary war, V.nown as the Sun Dance
Trail, Qnnaron watches and walta for
tha big jfcow-wow of the tribes, and suc
ceeds m inducluc the leading chieftain
uoftoaoln tha-revolt, which Is finally ex
agtilabtd. The trials of the early settlers In the
Sf Northwest ate Uidly portrayed,
$hlf th -moic abounds In exciting mo
jntnta which are bound to thrill.
Case for England
Arnold Bennett Is an engaging Journal
ist, even when he Is writing a novel.
So, naturally, his statement of tho Brit
ish case In the present war, "Liberty"
(George H. Doran, New York), Is as
plausible a .piece of writing as anything
on the erbal side of the encounter. But,
like most of the briefs for Great Britain
and naalism ngalnst Germany and mili
tarism, It tries to prove too much. It
whitewashes the cliffs of Albion as poets
used to paint the Illy. Tho result Is a
horrid suspicion that the reader Is gazing
upon a whlted sepulchre Instead ot the
repository of all earthly virtue.
Mr. Bennett must spread all over his
book that tiresome piece of moral heroics
about the violated neutrality of a country
which had long ago aligned herself with
Franco and England Mr. Bennett must
repeat and capitalize to horrid proportions
doubtful tales of cruelty that might be
qulto as true of England if she were the
invader: ho must poison human feeling
with n j ellow Journalism that were better
suppressed, no matter what the truth.
AH this and more when he might stop
his apologies for Russia and bring the
whole share of England In the war up

John Hay, Author
The sympathetic biography of "John
Hay, 'Author and Statesman" (Dodd,
Slead & Co., New York), by Loremo
Sears, will undoubtedly help to keep
alie the memory of that gifted states
man. In a simple straightforward Btle.
and jet with unbounded admiration for
his subject matter written clearly be
tween the lines, Mr. Sears has touched
upon many interesting phases of Mr.
Hay's life, and also upon important pe.
riod Jn the history of American diplo
macy. The picturing of Mr. Hay's college dajs
at Brown UnUerslty, his Intimacy with
Lincoln nd the Important part Uncoln
played In shaping the joung diplomat's
career; short accounts of Mr- Hay's suc
cess as an impromptu Journalist, author
and poet, and his -Ise In the diplomatic
service culminating In the position ot
Secretary of State unai McKlnley and
Roosevelt, all present -n interesting
study and make the short book well
Some of the most Interesting pages of
the book are devoted to the important
part pUed by Mr, Hay In negotiating
the Hay-Pauncefote Treatj, which gae
