1 miles, can develop 12. 000 hors power, and carries 16 torpedoes of the most destructive type. Her

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
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
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
