When \\(> "clann" our filililc into

random shot, aimed at no one in par

surprised to hear Com. C. \V. G.s cry
of an;;uisli and can only conclude thnt
he miKst have been hit.
C. W. f!., we presume, denotes that
Charley Was Grouchy, which, being
in the past tense, would indicate that
he had gotten safely over It, and, con
sequently, that it was merely a tem
porary affliction. We sincerely hope
that tlie comrade is not constituted
of such Inapt and impossible combl
riations as to permit himself to be
permanently Irritated over harmless
We could not help but contrast the
kindly reference to the Colyum by
our young comrade, Ulonska, in one
of his charming talks, to that of C.
\V. G. It reminded us of something
we used to write in our copy books
during our knickerbocker days about
"seeds of kindness," which, if more
liberally used, would do much to pro
mote a true comradeship among our
members so essential to the success
of the organization.
We might be able to prod a "moral"
from this but fear that Comrade C.
W. G. may not detect the odor and
thus more mis-spent effort would die
C. W. G.s whang at us confirms our
dawning suspicion that in aping G.
Ade we were traveling out of our
class. The mental strain on us is too
great. We have a feeling akin to
that which Comrade Eugene Wood I
says he experiences when he writes
funny stuff for Pearson's. Besides
we are too remote from the large cen- j

EXECUTION OF FIVE
CONDEMNED BY SOCIETY
Says State Sets Criminal an Ex
ample in Taking Human Life
NEW YORK.—The execution of five
men in the electric chair at Sing Sing
on September 3 is the occasion for the
issuance of a statement by the Anti-
Capital Punishment Society, at 440
Fourth avenue, protesting against the
practice of the state in taking human
life, The statement also protests
apamst the alleged misrepresentations
of those favoring capital punishment.
The statement says: "Does any In
telligent person believe that there will
b« any reduction of crime in this state
as the result of these executions? The
criminal sees the state set him an
example in taking human life. And
there is at least a remote chance that
one of the five was innocent of the
crime for which lie rendered his life."
The statement voices a vigorous pro
test against misrepresentation of the
farts by Hie proponents of the death
penalty: "In connection witli the ef
fort to do away with such tragedies
through the abolition of the death
penally, it is interesting to note in
Boston the 'Civic Alliance' is actively
Circulating literature in defense of
capital punishment, The leaflets of
the 'Civic Alliance 1 are each a model
of unfairness ami misinformation."
The statement challenges (lie impli
cation that the voters in (wenty-two
states have declared for capita] pun
Ishment, and asserts that the voters
in no slate this year have had the op
portunity of declaring themselves on

The Cost of War
IN TIMES OF PEACE!
FROM "WAR, WHAT FOR?"
(By George R. Kirkpatrlck)
What la the significance <>f the pres
enl coil (if militarism for the world
annually? No human mind can dis
cern or take In the vast meaning of
tin. blood-and-proflt-lust politic! that
holds and damns the world today.
Wight Billion Dollars! 18,000,000,000.
Tossed to Ma™, the red-stained n»<\
or war! While the human race Cm
tern iii Ignorance! $k,000,000,000 —to
blind and blindfold the multitude with
their own blood and rass while their
lives arc robbed nnd ravaged by the
eminent and respectable profit-ghit
ton parasites or mankind,
ONE ITEM ALONE IN THIS COST
OF MILITARISM IS ALMOST FOUR
BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR. That
Single Item is the wealth thut is not
produced, but that oovld be produced
if the six million five hundred thou
sand carefully selected young men in
the standing armies of these twenty
one countries were engaged in pro
ducing wealth with modern tools, mod
ern machinery and modern knowledge
Kifciit billion dollars! $«.000,000,000.
Men mid women ibttdder when the
telegraph flashes over the world that
a city hiiß Buffered a ten-million or a
twenty-million dollar fire. Let us try
to get an Idea of the cost of wealth
waßting militarism by expressing it
In terras of lobb by the devourer fire.
Bight billion dollars! This sum,
iiiis expense of trall-dog-an4-tlger
tab imansblp of militariam in twenty
"highly civilized" countries — for
twelve months in times of peace, is
equivalent to a continuous loss by
fire, throughout the year, day and
night, of more than $913,000 an hour,
or about |16,319 per minute.
This sum, worse than wasted an
nually to be "prepared"—to slaughter
—is equal to a loss by fire burning
day and night throughout the year, de
vouring seven homes per minute, each
worth $1,700 and each home contain
ing also $475 worth of furniture.
The average working-class family
contains about six members, two par
ents and four children; the average
working-class family would consider
itself in good fortune to have a home
worth $1,000 and provided with $475
worth of furniture. Seven such homes
would contain forty-two members.
Now, imagine an unbroken stream
of people—men, women and little chil
dren, frightened, pale, shuddering, the
children screaming, the women in
tears, fleeing past you in the street,
driven by fire from their ruined homes
—forty-two people rushing by you ev
ery minute—day and night, year after
year, on and on, an endless stream of
humbled and saddened souls, plunged
In misery, their happiness swallowed
by pitiless fire; or—
Imagine a Hre rushing faster than a
strong man at a brisk walk —imagine
a fire rushing forward more than
eight miles an hour, consuming fifty
such homes per mile, making each
year thirty-six round trips, burning
going and coming from New York City I
to St. Louis, Missouri; or one such
round trip every ten days-imagine
these losses, these annual losses- and
you will perhaps have some idea of
what it costs these twenty-one coun
tries to brag and strut and piously
prepare to settle their disputes as
tigers settle theirs—by force!
It is as if the fiends of hell were
crazed and loose on the earth.
AND THIS IS STATESMANSHIP!
ONE YEA R—$8,000,000,000!
One year's cost of militarism in
these twenty-one countries ($8,000,
--000,000) would keep thirty-two million
student! in college for one year, al
lowing $250 each.
The cost of militarism in these
twenty-one countries for less than nine
hours and a half would pay all the ex
penses of 4,500 students in Harvard
University for four years, allowing
each student $500 per year.
Six per cent, interest on this $8,
--000,000,000 for one year would provide
a four-year college education for 480,-
OdO young men and women, allowing
each student $250 per year.
Eight billion dollars every twelve
months on war and preparation for
war—and yet not a single silk-hatted
snob sleeps in the dingy barracks, or
eats the cheap "grub" fed to the pri
vates, or submits to the humiliating
insults from "superior" officers, or
spills his blood on the firing line —
not one anywhere in the world.
