Tho Now York American inclines
to the opinion that the war In Europe has

Two months' drill in tho field has

were not raw recruits'. They havo had

than aro now available, men who do not

Our virllo and enterprising elder
brother, tho Public Ledger, announces
$2000 In prizes for tho best editorials on
"Why Mr. Hughes Should Be Elected"
and "Why Woodrow Wilson Should Bo
Re-elected." The contributions aro likely
to bo of the highest class, as the contest
is open to professional writers, and wo
havo no doubt that the winning edi
torials will be considered throughout tho
country as authoritative analyses of tho
situation from each point of view. The
campaign is doubtless tho most impor
tant waged since tho first election of
Abraham Lincoln, and tho Public LnDonR
is- performing a real public service In
thus enrolling the best brains of the
nation to elucidate and present in strik
ing form tho great Issues on which the
electorate is to pass.
Mr. Wilson's campaign managers
aro trying to be all things to all men In
, tho hope that thereby they may catch
votes. They are for national defense and
preparedness when they) talk to some and
they are for disarmament and universal
peace when they talk to others. They
have just issued from their headquarters
, In Washington a bulletin laying particu
lar emphasis upon the provisions of the
navy law which authorize tho abandon-
ment of the warship-building program
t If an International conference agrees
i upon limitation of armament. This Is
' for the consumption of the pacifists. But
as the Democracy Is the party of Httlo
navy men, It will be difficult to persuade

The notion of Democratic leaders
, in Congress that because they had de

' it would be Impossible to attend to nec

"dying session" would have been non

. ilous; a refusal to assist in attempts to
avert a railroad strike would havo been
incredible. But the "shying" of the ma
1 Jority leaders at such, responsibilities has
I been In line with a policy which in the
f last three and a half years has made
Mr. Wilson tho party's dictator rather
than the "leader of the nation" he would
' like to be. The Democrats long ago de
cided to stand or fall with Mr, Wilson. If
there was to be political capital to ba
made for the party by the President's
settling the strike, they wanted all the
reflected credit they could get from the
situation to Bend them back to Congress.

I could not etnnd for this dyestuffs
section, which Is nothing moro nor
less than copying Republican protec
tive tariff principles, something that 1
havo stood igalnst for a lifetime.
I will not Stand to bo lectured by tho
Senator from Missouri or by nny one
else on something that leaves a stench
in the noBtrlls of tho Democrats. Sen
THESE Illuminating remarks by tho
Alabama Senator in resenting tho
criticism of Senator Stono reveal moro
clearly than tho dyestuff section of tho
new revenue bill the attltudo of tho re
sponsible leaders of tho Democratic
party. Protection Is a stench In the nos
trils of tho Democracy, drover Cleve
land donounced it, and Woodrow Wilson
rejoiced that Congress had given him an
opportunity to sign a bill which mado a
deliberate attack upon tho protectlvo prin
ciple and put American business on tho
defensive in its own markets.
Tho proposed dyestuff tariff is n stench
in tho nostrils of all tho Democratic
tariff reformers. They have had to hold
tholr noses whllo they voted for It In
committee meeting. They did not daro
appeal for votes in the presidential elec
tion if it could bo charged against them
that they had neglected tho obvious duty
of doing something to encourage tho
dyo industry hero and freo us from de
pendence on Germany. They knew that
we produced in largo quantities tho samo
kind of raw materials that tho German
chemists transformed into colors, and
that thoy wero going to waste. Pressure
of public sentiment has forced them to
agree to a duty on dyes. And they are
preparing to say to tho voters, "Wo can
bo trusted to look after tho industry of
the country. Look at what wo have dono
to relieve tho dyo famine."
If tho voters aro deceived by any such
plea thoy will havo only themselves to
blame for tho disaster that will overtake
them. The war has cut off our supply of
dyes, and we find ourselves in need be
causo the domestic industry has not been
developed. Tho war has also cut off
tho competition of European producers
with tho Industries which havo been de
veloped under a protectlvo tariff. Tho
Democrats have lowered the duties on a
multitude of articles. When tho war ends
tho producers of Europe, Instead of crip
pling our industry by cutting short our
supply of chemicals needed In our' own
manufacture will begin to cripple It by
flooding our markets with goods produced
in feverish haste by labor that has been
mado efficient by the dread necessities
of war. That competition which Presi
dent Wilson delighted to assist in bring
ing about will begin In deadly earnest.
Nothing but an intelligently framed
and consistent protective tariff law can
save us in tho approaching crisis. Tho
party In power is not oven considering
tho passage of any sort of a protectlvo
law. It Is trusting to luck and to a
bunglingly framed anti-dumping bill
which can bring relief only when It Is
proved that the purposo of a foreigner
in underselling Americans in their own
markots is to ruin them. All the foreigner
would have to say Is that "I am selling
my goods at a profit, and If you cannot
make them as cheaply as I can that Is
your misfortune and not my fault." And
tho Democrats would have to admit It, for
they are committed by generations of
profession and practice to the theory that
If goods can bo made moro cheaply In
Europe it is an economic crime for
Americans to attempt to manufacture
The workmen in the mlll3 In Phila

RUMANIA CASTS THE DIE
EVENTS are rushing to a decision.
More Important than all the cen
sored news and all tho special articles
and all the criticisms of experts as a
verdict on the situation Is the decision
of Rumania. Others may think that vic
tory is about to alight on this side or the
other, but Rumania knows. Sho has
waited patiently until her vision could
bo clear, Just as she did In tho Balkan
wars of a few years ago, but she has
not waited too long' to be assured of the
realization of her national ambitions In
the final remaking of the maps.
The decision of Rumania is a solemn
notification to the world that in tho opin
ion of that cunning nation the die is cast
and the opportunity for a Hohenzollern
triumph definitely passed,
In a material way the entrance of
Rumania into the war is also of the
greatest Importance. It not only threat
ens on both sides the Teuton lines of
communication with Turkey, but it opens
to Russia a comparatively easy path Into
the Dual Monarchy, It deprives the Cen
tral Empires of a granary and it brings
into the Held a fresh, efficient and pow
erful corps of veteran troops, to the num
ber of more than, half a million, splen
didly equipped and inspired by traditional
hatred of the Bulgarians.
It is the Dual Monarchy which Is
changing from a German asset Into a
German liability. Italy at last has
Issued a declaration against Berlin, and
Rumania, being against Austria, is also

MYSTERY OF EMMET'S BURIAL
The Patriot Wanted No Inscription on His Torhb Till Ireland
Was Free, But No One Knows Where
His Body Lies
By JOHN ELFRETH WATKINS
TilE refusal of tho British Government
to turn over Sir Roger Casement's
body to his family may havo resulted
from its experiences with that of tho cele
brated Robert Emmet.
During our Revolutionary War Em
met was born in Dublin, and nt Trinity
College ho mado a brilliant record. Ho
planned for himself a career as a lawyer
and developed such a gift for oratory
that ho was able to sway his classmates
to an extent that more' than assured his
success ns a politician. Ho could shapo
tho opinions of his hearers as ho willed.
Wherever ho went, head-? wore bared In
his honor. When he Joined tho "United
Irishmen," ho avowed himself a republi
can and stirred that body with a scries
of speeches that shocked the sensibilities
of the college authorities and led to his
expulsion. He now proclaimed his pur
poso to separato Ireland from Great Brit
ain and establish It ns an independent
republic. Ho helped to foment tho re
bellion of 179S, but that movement proved
abortive and Emmet had to leave Ireland
and tako refugo In France, from which
ho returned secretly In 1802. Then camo
tho great Irish Insurrection of 1803.
Emmet took up leadership In tho move
ment. Carefully organizing tho rebels, ho es
tablished munitions depots in various
parts of Dublin, and fixed upon July 23
as the time for seizing tho castlo and
arsenals of tho Irish capital. On the evo
of that day, ho directed tho distribution
of pikes among the assembled conspir
ators, and next day the Insurgent band,
cheering as they dashed through tho
streets, swelled Into a furious mob which
lost its head and assassinated Chief Jus
tice Kilvvarden as he passed by In his
carriage. But tho mob hesitated to fol
low Emmet to Dublin Castle. At tho first
volley from a small parcel of soldiers
they dispersed, leaving him unsupported,
Fleeing for his life to Wlcklow Moun
tains, ho remained in hiding until word
might come that ho could safely escape
But tho little blind god, who Is at tho
bottom of m'ost of life's tragedies, proved
to bo the dashing young patriot's undo
ing. That he might take ono more fond
farewell of his beloved Sarah Curran, the
daughter of tho noted barrister, John P.
Curran, to which lady ho was betrothed,
he delayed escape too long, was captured,
and, like Sir Roger Casement, was tried
for high treason against tho British, Gov
ernment. He defended his own case, and
most of us have been stirred by reading
the eloquent address which he made to
the court when asked If he could show
any cause why sentence should not bo
imposed upon him. The death penalty
Indicted upon Emmet was more cruel
than that suffered by Casement. After
he had been hanged, the executioner be
headed him and exhibited his bloody head
to the multitude. Then his body was
taken to Kilmalnham Jail, where, instead
of being destroyed in quicklime, ' It was
kept awaiting orders from his family, It
happened, however, that all of his rela
tives and friends were at the time either
n prison or In hiding, the latter not
daring to make known their whereabouts.
Beyond stating that it was returned to
the Jail, history does not relate what be
came of the body.
It was Emmet's dying request that his
grave should bear no epitaph until Ire
land should be freed, and out of respect
for his wishes doubtless grew the deep
mystery s to the place where his last
Four generations have scoured, the
Emerald Isle for Robert Emmet's bones.
According to the Kilmalnham Jailer, his
body, wben unclaimed, was taken from
"LOVE ME, LOVE MY DOG'"
tho prison nnd burled in Sullcy's Acre,
tho potter's field whero unclaimed pau
pers nnd executed criminals wero burled,
but was afterward claimed and exhumed
by a certain Doctor Gamblo and reln
terrcd In Dublin ut somo spot whoso lo
cation has escaped tho memory of tho
populace which held him as their idol.
His brother-in-law, John Patten, claims
that ono of tho men who burled it had ns
sured him that tho body lay In St.
Michael's Church, Dublin. According to
this man, a largo stone which, out of re
spect for Emmet's wishes, boro no In
scription was placed over the grave. But
.tho church records wero ransacked, and
no cluo to any body that might possi
bly bo that of tho Irish patriot was ever
found therein. According to another ac
count, tho Interment was In the Protes
tant churchyard of Glasnevln. Some
members of tho family maintain that It
was hidden In tho family vault at St.
Tho Irish people, eager to confer upon
Emmet every honor within their power,
are still searching for tho ashes of their
beloved hero, but their resting place re
mains today ns deep a mystery as it was
a century ago.

would have dono or would do with Mexico.
He wants to tear down the present struc

President Wilson appealed to the railroad
executives "as one American citizen to an
