We do not think the country linn been either
edified or deeply Interested In tlw Sims-Daniels
controversy concerning the nuvy nnd the pnrt
It ployed In the war. Admiral Sims evinced morn
courngo than Judgment In precipitating the row;
he will como out nither thoroughly tarred with
pro-Brltlsh sentiments urged by him, too, nt
the expcnue of Ills compntrlotH.
Hut nfter HstcnlnK to the BurprlslnR opInlotiH
of the necretnry of the nnvy concerning mival
affnlrn In gcnernl tho country must have n feel
Ins that It nhould conKintulato Itself on tho
fact that It 1h safely through one war and certain
to be rid of the present Incumbent of the naval
portfolio before another war cornea.
Mr. Daniels frankly confesses disapproval of
anythlnu In the nature of a prosram of pre
parcdness. HIb doctrine In "sufficient unto tho
day is the evil thereof." Ho asserts that human
history proves thnt planning in advance ac
complishes nothing, that It Is useless and waste,
ful expenses; that what we do today Is proven
obsolete tomorrow and so on.
Drawlnc such a lesson from "human history"
proves density on tho port of the student. The
thine thnt stood between Oermnny nnd the full
realization of plans that she had carefully pre
pared herself to carry throiiRh wna nothlnc
that men of tho Daniels stamp thouKht or did.
Germany's preparedness found a world com
pletely at her mercy, so completely nt her mercy
that had It not been for divine Interposition she
would have realized her ambition. World domi
nation is incapable of realization either by an
lndlvdual nation or a combination of nations.
That is an economic and political principle which
renders nugatory tho league of nations and tho
ambitious program It seekH to carry out.
nut had there been adequate preparedness on
the part of the nations against whom yermnny
huurled her hordes, tho war would have ended
precisely as It eventually ended, very shortly
nfter It began. And n million lives would havo
been spared. This la n point the pacifist mind
seems Incapable of grasping that adequate pre
paredness does not mean war but pence, that It
Joes not mean tho slaughter of human beings
but the prevention of that slaughter. And on that
point the visionary and Idealist trip themselves
nnd flounder ridiculously.
It may be true, as Secretary Daniels and too
many who think ns he does assort, hat this
country Is capable of protecting ItHelf under Any
and all circumstances, Hut the preparedness ad
vocatcs underhtnnd that the dlfferouco between
forming an adequate defensive forc In the face
of an enemy and throwing an adequately pro
pared and trained forco ti gainst that enemy In
the beginning Is an appalling human wastage
that prudent consideration of stntescrnft nnd
'nationalism requires shall be avoided. It would
be possible to ultimately defeat the best trained
pugilist by hurling Inexperienced men Into the
ring agoinst him; eventually ho would bo worn
down. Hut matching him In kind In the first
Inbtance would bo common scnFc.
The secretary of the navy gave symctry and
consistency to the administration of which he

The Oklahoma City mooting of tho Oklahoma

To continue to assert that tho 'president Is
seeking to give the country what it wants is
to deliberately Ignore the plain fncts. Knr tho

most Illustrious of his own party leaders counsel

We are going to Invado the territory of tho
sporting editor long enough to express our dis
approval of the pitching staff of Tulsa's ball
team. Those birds are all Wilson men, nnd we
are against them. They are too charitable; they
are addicted to the practice of giving away too
many valuable bases. The balance of tho team
meets our approval. They are not too proud
to fight, steal like gentlemen and see in an ad
versary somothlng to beat, not something to
coddle. If Col. Abbott will rid his team of

"Tho Itonl Kitchener" Not a Man of Ice
A legendary figure, cold and silent." was
Hngland n famous "K of Iv " during hla life
time, and the tr.iglr, msterlous way In which
he went to his death added to the legendary
quality of the fame that he gained throushout
hi life. Contemporary rumor and gossip,
aided by his own curious aloofness, as one re
cent biographer tints It. made of him for a long
time "a man of mystery and romance. ' His
long absences from Hngland In strange cor
ners of the earth where he spent most of his
life, In Kgypt. Palestine. South Africa, and In
dia, were not without their effect on the public
mind. It may be significant that he was so
frequently cartooned as n huge, cxpresslonles.

character showed Itself on another side In a
noteworthy cleanliness of mind. None will for

the overwhelming rush of Herman troops and
an enforced Hrltlsh retreat. A conference took
plnre In his room on August 12. we are told:
He listened carefully to the views ex
pounded by the 1'renrh and Hrltlh staffs, and
then replied that he had understood and nc

be at Amiens. . . He protested strnnglv against
a concentration so far forward as Maubeuge
Nothing, hn urged, could be worce for the

I nevnr knew that the hours could

nothing l'lnally I went Into tho
dining room where Delia was work

the time would not drag so heavily.
All the afternoon we scoured and
polished, until by c o'clock I was
too tired to even think- Delia had
tried to Jiiake me leave her to fin
ish, although she had been none too
pleased at the extra work I had
planned for her.

After an early dinner I put on a

disgust I went to bed Juit as the

calling Hob up to bid him good
night, then roncluded not to, a llttlo
ache In my heart that he had not
t,hought of calling me.
1 remained In bed the next morn

and asked If 1 were going to church
"No. I shan't go today." I replied.
She said nothing further, but asked
me to come over to dinner.
"No. I'll remain at home. I am

"H doesn't Intend to come until

After Ihung up the revolver a
lump came Into my throat I was
afraid I was going to crv Crv for
self-pl'y for a condition I had chos

P.lsle I knew wouldn't be lonelv

time with his friends around him
I forced back the tears, and took
the papers Into the library and sat
down to read. After a while I censed
to feel my loneliness I had found a
story of a girl who had married a
man with many gay friends, and
whose home was broken up; her
life ruined by the husband's fond
nes's for these friends, nnd the conse
quent neglect of his wife.
I paralleled tho cases. Why Hob
was apt to do the same things unless
I put a stop to it at once' I never
paused to reason that tho man in
the story was a selfish sort of ,i
creature who cared for nothing save
his own pleasure; and that the wife
was a young foolish child. I only
thought of the fact that the husband
gave him time, his thoughts, to his
men friends, the friends of his
bachelor days. Had I needed any
thing to strengthen me In my pur
pone, my determination to make Hob
feel that I could havo no happiness,
no enjoyment without him; It was a
lono in the storv where when the
wife complains that he leaves her.
