Humor .Spread Quickly.
Rumors of the tragedy first began to

These at first were discredited but soon

thousands had left the city on excursions
to the suburbs, and the city was halt
deserted, but as the news spread the
streets became crowded with excited
groups, reading the extra editions of the
newspapers. These offices were besieged
for further details.
A pathetic circumstance of the tragedy
la that both the archduke and his wife
went to Brosnla despite warnings ot
danger. Before their departure on Wed
nesday the Servian minister here ex
pressed doubt of the wisdom of the
journey, saying the country was In a
very tubulent condition. Themlnlster
added that If the archduke went him
self, he certainly ought to leave his wife
at home, as Bosnia was no place for a
woman In Its present disturbed state.
The people of Sarajevo welcomed the
Austrian royalty with a display of Serv
ian flags which the authorities with some
difficulty had remold before the arch-d-'
e made his entry late Saturday aft
ernoon after the maneuvers. It is stated
in court circles that the archduke know
ing the dangers of the trip tried to per
suade his wife to remain at home, but
she said: "My place Is beside my hus
band in time of danger."
The archduke's children are at Glu

left to break the sad news to them.

wife will not be brought to Vienna until

In a remarkable address on "Construc
tive Public Opinion,". before the New
Jersey State Chamber of Commerce last
week. Frank A. "Vanderlip. president of
the National City Bank of New York,
called attention to the dangers confront
ing the country; commercial and busi
ness enterprises and amplified his previ
ous suggestion that the danger may be
averted by business men devoting more
attention to politics. His address Is de
serving of wide publication and The Her
aid. therefore reproduces It below.' prac
tlcaUy In full:
I believe that business men, are face to
xacc wun a peremptory necessity lor tax
ing a deeper Interest In political affairs.
It Is no longer a time for platitudes about
discharging one's duties by going to the
polls. There Is a much larger duty of
citizenship. The polls are merely the
place of registering the conclusions of
It Is the duty of business men to think
deeply enough upon these problems to
that their conclusions will stand the test
ofopen discussion. It Is the obligation
or Business men to make effective political
contributions, which will help to form a
sound public opinion.
Traced to Xraleet of Tlntleo.
Viewed In this larger sense. I believe
that nearly everything that business nun
have to complain of in the political ten
dencies of the day can be pretty directly
traced to their own neglect of their po
litical duties. I believe that such neglect
nas Drougm us to a point oi gravest aan
ger, danger that involves the very foun
dations of the present order. That there
should have been such neglect is not an
unnatural thing. The conduct of business
requires a high specialization, a more
complete specialization today, with all Its
complexities and Its keenness of competi
tion, than It ever before required, ripe
clallsts, whether they be business spe
cialists or specialists of other kind, are
apt to be so wrapped In their own en
vironment that they are unable to gen
eralize. Thej" are obtuse regarding mat
ters outside of their specialty and ars
unable to detect the course of the larger
currents of affair'. That la one reason
why business men are not more widely
anake to the true significance of the
drift of political currents.
I firmly believe that If this nation Is to
avoid disaster, a general awakening is
necessary. We must recognize the prob
able effect of present day political ten
dencies upon business, upon property and
upon property rights, and upon the course
of Industrial and commercial develop--!
ment. I believe that currents are devel
oping today that may quickly become ir
resistible forces, and that, too, forces of
adversity and 111 fortune. If their dangers
are not comprehended, their direction
corrected, and their sources controlled.
The stake which business men have In
the outcome Is enormous Grest as It is.
however, it is of no more concern to
them, of no more import to the future
happiness of their children, than it Is
to the condition and outlook of the hum
blest of workers.
A disaster to capital, a crippling and
discouragement of directive ability, the
disheartening of men of enterprise, will
not have its efTects confined to the class
which you as delegates from the cham
bera of commerce represent. Its results
will encompass the whole social body.
There Is no man so humble that his in
terest Is not as great as yours in the out
come. I wish there could be a clearer compre
hension of what a disheartened business
community really means, vvnat it means
to the whole people If the directive
forces of business life are to lose heart.
If their courage for new enterprise Is to
ebb. If their willingness to tske risk, to
test the chances of the future, to venture
present possession upon prospective de
velopment, is to fill, then trie psychology
of the business mind becomes a matter
of the gTavest Import.
One may well stop to ask if anything
resembling such a state of mind really
exists, and. If it does exist, is there any
substantial foundation for it? A large
part of the business world is pessimistic;
yet there is much in the situation that
would seem to make pessimism unwar
ranted. Nature Is smlllnc as rarely be
fore, and holding out hands overflowing
with plenty. The banking situation Is
peculiarly free from the results of er
rors of Judgment, and nearly every com
munity In the country has the advan
tage of an easy money market and a
sound credit situation. We ave had no
blows from any extraordinary disaster.
At many points, the statistical data of
business shows that it is still in large vol
ume; in some Important particulars fig
ures could be adduced that have rarely
What Grounds for Apprehension f
In the face of such conditions. It may
well be asked, are there Just grounds for
apprehension. Are the dangers that some
of us think we see merely phantoms;
have f minds so Inflexlbily bound to
tradition, to the old order, that we can
not grasp the significance, or the benefi
cence, of change? Do we. therefore,
perforce find In prospective changes pros
pective disasters, while, in fact, our ap
prehensions have no substantial exist
ence? Are industries running on half
time merely examples of unrealized fears;
are the many. Illustrations of industrial
distress that might be cited, of urgent
need for financing that it Is difficult to
do, of new enterprise abandoned, of old
enterprise left with plans for expansion
grown cold, only the result of a blind
and stiff-necked adhesion to the old or
der, of an Inability to conform to new
conditions, to new social and political
Wo seem to be without leaders wise
enough to answer such questions so that
their conclusions will convert those hold
ing opposite views. Thus we have many
conflicting opinions. For myself, I can
only say that the political current upon
which we are now beginning to travel
with tremendous speed, seems to me
liable to land us In a thorough-going dis
organization of business and industrial
life. Those currents may be engendered
and guided by forces partially sincere
and honest, but only partially, and even
when those forces are sincere and hon
est, they are frequently ill Informed as to
facjn and lacking In sound understanding
of great economic principles.
In legislation there Is a disposition to
throw experience to the winds. We seem
to have a new conception of the func
tions of government; of what legislation
may be expected to accomplish. Indeed,

ception of the fathers o our government

Vlevrs of n Senator,
A distinguished member of the United
States Senate, that once "greatest de
liberate body in the world," a few days
ago Impressively made this statement:
"Every step of human progress Is the
abandonment or condemnation of that
which went before!" There Is the key
note of much of our loose political think
ing "Every step of human progress is
the abandonment or condemnation of
that which went before."
The man who holds that view, the po
litical party that legislates In the light of
that pronouncement, .nust believe that
what is bad. that In novelty, in untried
experiment. In new theory and in newer
practice alone lie those measures of gov

have a legislative restlessness that Is un

In the light of anything known before,
as has been reached. In art by the schools
of cubism and futurism. To the sober
minded, somewhat unimaginative, hard
working business man, to the man whose
life has been a career dealing with facts,
facts as they are, some of our recent
legislative proposals are no more intelli
gible than that famous composition,
which bore the title. "A Nude Descend

I am quite sure the great school of im

Carrying the parallel into politics, I be
lieve we should not be so bound to old
forms as to close our minds to the con
sideration ot new theories. We may well
admit that there Is a sound basis of
economic facts back of many of the
demands for novel legislation. Industry
Is In a novel situation. The changes
wrought In our lifetime by new forms of
power, of transportation, of communica
tion, are revolutionary Even greater
have been the changes wrought by cor

direction of these new forces have not

we should see that those facts are no

specific application of what I mean, let
