It is 240 feet long, has a cruising radius of 1 miles, can develop 12. 000 hors power, and carries 16 torpedoes of the most destructive type. Her ill allows her to carry law quantities of fuel oil. She is also equipped with deck guns, and is sup pOl be SI dangerous to aircraft as to water craft. The U. S. is evidently taking all necessary precautions.

Service Now Comes the Assemblywoman NEW YORK STATE M) - "1 iflsaaH nnnw sensation, in her recent ly e led e d assembly woman. She is lis Margin rite L Smith, the daughter of J. Gardener Smith, president of the Harlem Board of Com merce. M is Smith is 25 years old and has led an active life. She has served as teacher of physical training in the Horace Mann school and was a member of the lo cal draft ward. Her strongest interest is in legislation affecting the health oi the people, and this naturally and log ically brought her into touch with the housing problem, which in turn made her aware of the evils of landlordism and rent profiteering. She is a Republican, ran as a Republican, was elected as a Republican, but will serve as the representative of that class whose problem! are neither Democratic nor Re publican, but just plain human. Xew York women are interesting themselves in pub lic problems to an extent which exceeds their activity before they gained the vote; which proves that their objective was not the ballot, but the BSC they could make of it. East and West of Suez THE land of Egypt, ancient in civilization, is cele brating its most wonderful and most modern monu ment, the opening of the Suez canal. Fifty years ago the young West unlocked the ancient East by joining the familiar Mediterranean to the obscure Red Sea, and thus leading forth ships of all nations from the Adri atic and Aegean to the Indian Ocean. It is natural that Egypt should celebrate this event, for this is what has transformed her from an abject dependency of Turkey to a prosperous dominion, with a sell expressing citizenship. And she can celebrate it with a free and confident spirit. There was in an cient times a Suez canal, through which the galleys of Pharaoh Necho traveled, but that canal perished like so many other works of the ancient tyrants. The mod ern Sue canal will not be obliterated in desert dust, for it is no mere tic vice of royal pride. It is now a water way for the World, as much as the Red Sea or the Nile. Standing on the side of the rushing marine traffic of the Suez canal, nations may well learn their lesson of interdependence. The nations need each other. Lon don needs the tea of India, and China needs the steel oi Sheffield. There was a time when every land was content with its own food, its own wares, its own art and music, but today the world must be searched for the whinis of a Kamchatka fisherman. The interdependence of nations, expressed in world wide commerce, made more close and intimate by Pan ama and Suez canals, by wireless telephones and air ship commerce, means eventually the unity of the earth. These things would compel eventually a League of Na tions, even if no League plan had been formulated. The meekest and humblest of us lives not in America or Europe, but in the world. The humblest tea-drinker trades with the farthest Orient, and Mildred's muff makes her a customer of the Arctic Circle. We live wherever the cable reaches, and wherever the sea-ships travel, and our home address is both east of Suez, and West of the sunset. Barriers of Glass AN act has passed the British House of Commons granting to women, who have noble titles in their own right, regular seats m the House ol Lords A score of women are candidates for the next House of Commons, and hundreds, are standing for public office in cities and towns, These are a few facts found in a single issue of a newspaper. We know what the women wtlt righting for the year before the war: these seats in Parliament which are to be theirs, this political equality which is theirs already. Their purpose is and alwavs was as clear as the aim of the barons who forced King john to sign Magna Charta. But what was hard to understand then, and what is hard to comprehend now, is: What wai tl tsitioa aiming, or trying, or hoping to do? What was go ing on in the minds of men who tried to set up barri cades of glass against irresistible Right? What was the meaning of "public meetings" where a portion of the public could be heard only by making disturbance? The Right has won. It must win. We know that. We have seen it in a million historic instances. The House of Conunons dicta:.- the make-up ol the House of Lords, because the Lords are only nobles, and the Commons are thc nation. Women, children, the weak, the helpless, the downtrodden, have their rights, and will secure them. The strongest barriers we can set against Progress are mere window! through which we can see the onward rush of the race, before the fragile obstruction crashes in litter about US. Business Methods EVERY now and then some new held of human life is declared to be a Business. We have been told that married life, keeping house, is a business. There should be books, accounts, allowances, balances, charges of profit and loss, in regular order. We have been assured that the church needs more business methods. Ledger records of income and out go, for money and effort, are calmly recommended. So the schools are urged to adopt "Business Methods," and everyone from the pillmaker to the poet is told to reduce his effort to business principles. The fact is that "Business Methods." methods of get ting business for its own sake, are no longer regarded as businesslike in the great field of commercial suc cess. The great men of the market and the bank talk more of principles of business than of mere methods of acquirement. The expression '"Business Methods" belongs in part to the old days when commerce was its own iaw and its own reward. The modern busil ess man has ceased to be a mere ledger-and da) b- n k. H refuse! I be mere stocks and bonds. He wants some of the graces and courtesies of life, flowers on his office table and friendly relations. And he finds he is more prosperous thereby. The young couple who try to make their botBC a mere business will find themselves running a lunch stand with lodgings, with Cupid living next door. The church that tries to make itself a mere business will find ledger preaching less successful than Bible preach ing. Let us all be as businesslike as is necessary, of course. But let us not bring into our religious, educa tional, domestic and professional life the old and cold "Business Methods" which business has discarded in disgust.
