ENTER ITALY. tawa dispatches received last night ate that the Italian parltment baa conferred full powers on the govern ment to make all decisions In case Of war for the defense of the State, Which indicates that Italy ts about to strike if abe has mot already done so. Parts ia eaJd to bo celebrating the coaoiutoement of the Italian psr?i mant's aoUon aa ff wer had been for mally declared. It la not improbable that war han been declared and that on account of new* from Rome being greatly delayed the announcement has not reached the United Slates lu the event Italy baa taken Mic Held against Ibe powers of the pual Alliance, righting by the ?id?- of th-; nations or the Triple B?tente, a phase of the war entirely new has hon brought about. The fact that Austria baa made Btrong overtures to tin- italian government to continue her ? ourse of neutrality and that Ger many baa not been inactive In the same matter, wc take to mean that these power? feur the entrance of their erstwhile colleague or the Triple Allan? ?' Into the pit. There is much speculation ar, to thc effect Italy's ?'ntrance nito thc war on the uide of Fran? ??, England and RUB sla will have on the early termination of the conflict. Thin ls a matter whfch can, in a measure, be dcter mlncd only by time. But one can (ike th?- force ot Italy's land an?i sea forrea and determine, in a way. the extent of ihp additional odds thal are piled up against Germany and Austria in their efforts to light their way out of the situation confronting them. With reference to the w.ir Btrcngth of Italy, the New York Times supplies the following Intor estlng data: The new that Italy has 1.700.000 soldiers mobilized and equipped, that ia. ready for immediate participation in the war. In probably somewhat ex aggreatcd. The number is very much greater than the peace-time estimates of her potential atrength In soldiery. The regular establishment has con sisted of twelve army corps and in dependent cavalry, a force of about 400.000 men. The mobile militia han been counted upon for 1126,000 men more, "but the numbers put into the field," says a writer In the States men's Year Book, "would) probably not exceed 200,000." There is then the territorial militia, which is more numerous than immedaitely available, as only about one-half of its mem bers have pnsed through the army and mobile militia. It seems Improbable that a govern ment less anxious for war than it? people seem to be should have made out of thin material an army of 1,700. 000 men. In no short a time, and while yet at peace. But the Italian army, be lt very much less, say only 1.000, 000 men, ls yet a tremendous force for Germany to have lost in the be ginning and for the allies now to gain. It would thua count twice against Germany. It has already counted once, when Italy elected to remain neutral instead of adding her strength to that of Germany and Austria, whose ally she had been In peace. So long as she remained neutral the loss to Germany- was simply that nf help; should now bc transferred tn tho other Bide the loss would bo com pounded. What might have been add ed to the German strength l:> added to that of the allies. And If Germany before the war be gan thought she would command the Italian navy, then she would lose that twice In tho event of lt? going at last to the aide of the allies: The differ ence between 19 Italian warships be ing added to the German navy or re maining neutral is 189 shipB, but tbe difference. between 189 ships being added to the German navy or geing over to the allies* navy is 378 shipo. That ls as the relative strength of the opposing forces would be affected, the Italian navy might will be cov eted by either sido, lt contains four dreadnoughts and twp more building, eight predreadnoughts, twenty-two cruisers, eighty-six torpedo boats, thirty-five destroyers, and twenty-five Bubmarines. Its strength In torpedo boatB Is notable, at leset numerically. France, with 2 1-3 times aa many bat tleships ot the dreadnought ana pro dreadnought types, baa less than twice aa many torpedo boats as Italy. The Italians navy Is also strong in cruisers, having 22 against the French navy's 31. and these would bc a wel come addition to the forces of the al lies at the present time. It waa owing to lack of cruisers that the British admiralty waa unable to convoy the Lusitania. WB1 Eaehew Sta. In response to a telegram from bis upcle. Eugene Tlmmons bas gone to Washington, D.

When the president, in hts speech a? the mayor's luncheon Monday, declar ed ?hal "America asks nothing or herself except what she has a right to asi lor humanity," he translated th?- not? to Germany out of the language of di plomacy Into the language of the people. That ls what the United States means In this crisis. AB the president so fe llcltously expressed lt: "We want no nation's property; WP wish to questlor no nation's honor; we wish lo stand selfishly in the way of th<' development of no nation; we want nothing that we can not get by our own legitimate en terprise and hy the Inspiration of our own example; and standing for th?s? things, lt ls not pretension on our part to say that we are privileged to stan<! for whut every nation would wish to st ind for, and speak for those things which all humanity must desire." Had the president's note to Germany represented anything less than tim Inherent Idealism of the American people, it would have been greeted by DC sueh mighty chorus of approval. Ile himself would not have been applauded in the ?treetH of New York yesterday as no other president has been applaud d with the memory of living men. When the Westminster Gazette called thc note lo Germany "the greatest single event of the war." it had in mind th? spirit and purpose that shaped the note, and that spirit and purpose are the ::"iil of the Republic. 't ir. because "the force of America is the force of moral principle, th it there ls not anything else that she lover, and that there IB not anything else tor which slie will contend." that the country has responded unanimously to President Wilson's leadership. He Stands forth not merely as chief magis trate of Hie nation, not merely as executive head of the government, hut ai! . lie very embodiment of trat moral principle without which the Republic could not live. Germany could make no graver blunder than to misread the significance ol that sentiment. The Rerlln correspondent of The World, whose news BOUrcec ire exceptional, telegraphs thnt "Germany will not deviate one lot) from its lubrnarine warfare against Kn gland " which presumably means that lt will continue to pile Lusitania massacre upon Lusitania mnssacre If possible. This opinion is "based dupon a knowledge of the situation here and the temper of lovernmental, army and navy circles, the press and tho people." Ho that nv, lt may. there IR an American temper that ls not to be disregarded either, and that temper is the temper of 100.000,000 people who. as the president says ask nothing for themselvse except what they have a rglht to ask for human Hy. Such a moral force has never been subdued by any mllitiry force, -?nd never will be subdued. If Herlin can not see tlnit, Rerlln in blind to thc greatest fact 1n human hlBtory. The American people, sometimes treat their government lightly. They ha bitually treat their politics lightly and their political IsBues lightly. But they never treat their ideals' lightly. They never permit thone Ideals to br trampled under foot, no matter what the cost of protection may be. It may not bc easy for the German government In Its present state of mind to ahow io those Ideals the respect they deserve, but the need of so doing is impera tive. One of the Pari? newspap'erB calls the presidents note to Germany an ulti matum. It waa not an ultimatum In form or in substance, but the spirit back of lt is an ultimatum, and that spirit ls the spirit to which the president gave expression yesterday. Today "we are privileged to stand for what every na tion would wiBh to Bland for." If Germany does not wish to stand for lt, BO much the worso for Germany. America has spoken.

OWNS THE MOST POWERFUL LONG DISTANCE RADIO STATION IN WORLD With tlie completion erf the bia; wireless station at Darlen. Canal Zone, tbe United States owns the jroatest and most po werf t?* long dis tance radio eUtlon In the world. Its average range under ordinary weather conditions la R.0OO miles. It took a year and a half to build lt at a coa: of $300,000. Tho Derlen station ls one of a chain of stations which will connect ali the possessions of the United States. One will be built st Manila, aaother at Hawaii and still another at San Diego. Th? government already has a wireless plant at Arlington,. near Washington. Through these stations constant communication will be main tained with avery part of the insular and continental possessions of the country. Messages from Nauen, the chief wireless station of the German gov ernment near Berlin, have been read at Darlen, and sine?; the plant went into commission on May 1 regular communications have passed between Darlen and Arlington. Tho station has three con.feet tow er* cohering an aroa of six acres. The towers are different from those at Say ville. L.

What we now see is a simultaneous and spontaneous movement every wher? out of Georgia-a movement in which ail sorts of people unite to impress upon the executive official of that State the adverse view of tho trial and conviction taken literally by hundreds of thousands. This they do in part by resolutions adopted at great public meetings, in part by petitions signed by long llBts of names, and still more by Individual telegrams and letters sent to the Governor of Geor gia, declaring strong doubt of Frank's guilt or strong belief In his innocence, and asking, aa an emergency measure, that his sentence be commuted to life imprisonment in order that op portunity may bo provided for t ? fu ture vindication as confidently ex pected.

Proof Which Disproves. (New York World ) We cannot but admire the extraor dinary intellectual acumen and pow ers of deductive logic shown by Prof. Jastrow, German economist. After all other minds had failed to connect the government of the United States with the manufacture and sale of war munitions to the enemies ot Ger many, he announces tu? discovery that thc Federal Reserve banks are accepting notes in payment for these munitions and that these notes are obligations o' thc? United States. Thia constitutes a "violation of neutrali ty." Prof. Jastrow's discovery is about en.mil lu truth to some other prior German conclusions abou the United States. Federal reserve circulating notes are, Indeed, obligations of tba United States in a remote sense, bnt the notes ho speaks of are a different thing. - They are mercantile paper ac cepted or Indorsed by member banks and become an obligation of these banks and not ot the government. They romain an obligation of these banks even when rediscounted at a federal reserve bank, and the most the government undertakes to do ts to hold tho banks to tbeir obligations. The existing national bank notes are more.directly an obligation ot the United States than the federal reserve notes. But is the government of the United statcB therefore associated in any degree with every private concerb which does business with a national bank? The best evidence of the strict neu trality of the United States ls to be found In the desporation of the argu ments to disprove lt. of which Prof. Jastrow's Is a crowning example. * PALMETTO SQUIBS. * p**ta*?*?a6?*fT*v*** * ?
