Dumba, should' be sent home in dis grace instead . of "on leave , of ab sence.". The translators have prab-i ably put a few fanciful and friendly phrases in Secretary of State Lan sing's note asking for the recall ofj the J Ambassador and, as a result, , the. Foreign Office, in Vienna, takes the wrong view of the situation. Evi dently the powers that be are of the opinion that the' United States is merely fooling, when it asks for . the recall of this good man, this so-called astute diplomat, this prime blunderer. It remains now for Secretary Lansing and his able body of State Depart ment officials to firmly implant, in the minds of those Austrian diplomats the idea that Dr. Dumba is not want ed in this country, that he must go, and go - as soon as possible. The only.way in which he will be granted protection on his journey over the bish seas is for Austria-Hungary to recall him. Then the United States will ask the Quadruple - Entente to give sa:fe vbyage to' th "man who has desecrated the name Ambassador, who has violated all the hospitalities of a friendly country, who has abused the prerogative of his office, Twho has dis graced himself and brought shame up 'on . a name that shoul4 have came to a more glorious plaeeiin the annals of diplomatic history. I No one has yet bobbed up as the defeholer of Dumba. No one will. After all1 his" experi ence he, should have known ' better. That is the only commentary needed on-his plight. . The sooner he clears the dust of this country from his 'sul lied toga the better f'or alt concerned. 'Even his own people in ..this country haye .turned against the Doctor., The Czechs and Slovaks, the Bohemians and Croatians have repudiated his in terference in their business.

It is only about a quarter-century ago that pajamas became fashionable as a night garment ' in this country. But in that time they seem to have lost their novelty with a large num ber of us, and like woolen suits for street wear in summer, we have ac cepted them as a necessary evil, one' of life's crosses to be borne patiently, uncomplainingly, in the name of con vention. Whether of silk or linen, or even of cotton, they preserve one's J modesty equally with one's perspira tion in the opaque night; they cut sharply into one's waist line, and not infrequently the heavy knobs and' frogs with which the jacket is ce mented in front leave scarlet indenta tions on one's chest of a morning merely to mark well the line along which to mark well the line along cut one in two. A splendid garment -for coaling ship! And that , is just the service which the bluejackets of Uncle Sam's , navy conceived it best fitted for. One hundred thousands suits of pajamas were provided for these young sav ages land of these they drew 30,000 but not ' for night clothing. Those who did not coal ship in them used them as underclothes. Though we do not advocate the latter use; it "may be worth while to point out that, at least it involves no abandonment of one's body to the straight jacket while unconscious. But pajamas were meant originally to be concealed neither, with other garments nor with the hospitable shades of night. They were ' de signed, in India, for street wear, and the East Indians, it is presumed would as soon 'think of sleeping in' them as we would of passing the night in a boiled shirt and spike-! tailed coat (this we sometimes do, but. 'under the circumstances which suffi ciently condemn the practice.) The old-fashioned nightshirt de serves a renaissance. Unwrittefn Law In New York. (New York World.) A .woman known as Mrs. Bellina killed her paramour, James Mon tiglia, . after the man she had lived with as her. husband cast her . off be cause of the intrigue. There was no dispute as to the facts. In the trial of Mrs. Bellina, Jus tice Kelby used every precaution to, forestall emotional appeals and in quences. "He warned counsel against sensational methods; he' had Mrs. Bellina's two babies removed from the court-room; he did not permit her to testify as to events leading up to the crime; instructing the jury up on its sworn duty, he charged it that " a woman has no more rights than a man before this bar." The verdict was simply "Not guil ty." There was ' no ' word of com promise. Manslaughter or a lower degree murder was not mentioned. Matteawan and the "brain-storm" were not appealed to. The woman who went armed to Montiglia's home and then shot him is as if no crime had been committed. Indeed, since the jury is the final authority, the killing was no crime. ' . The verdict cannot be questioned. The defendant cannot again be placed in jeopardy of the law. She is free, ,as other women are free. Was ever Rome or Paris more tender-hearted toward the "crime passionnel"? In the judicial annals b.f our own South was there ever , a more perfect ex ample of the "unwritten law"? A Step Forward. (Norwich Record.) When the M-l entered the water at Quincy, Mass., the United States made a marked step toward a proper degree of preparedness, for this is the larg est submarines ever launched in this country, and is in every way superior to any owned by Uncle Sam. But of course, it is not the confidence the nation places in this single under-wa-ter boat that lent importance to the event, but the proof that the naval authorities are beginning to develop a form of protection for our coasts that has heretofore received altogeth er too little consideration. While the M-l is not-the largest submarine in existence and possibly not the' best yet turned out, it is a vast improve ment over any flying the American flag and leads the way for others of a more powerful and better type, sev eral of which are either building or planned. With; 50 or 60 of these ves sels distributed along the Atlantic coast and an equal number in the Pa cific no nation dare attempt to send troopships here for purposes of in vasion. Without them the. case might be entirely different. And because of the remarkable effectiveness of the submarine this country should lose no time creating a fleet matching any in the world, ship for ship. In the task of : strengthening the naval forces of the United States a beginning has been made at the proper point. But the navy must have ample ships 'for every purpose of warfare and the. sub marine 1b but one arm of the service. WHAT OTHERS SAY Views on all sides of : timely questions, as discussed in "ex-; . changes that come to Herald office. Why We Must Ship Arms- (Bridgeport Telegram-.) There is one great and important reason why this nation should con tinue to ship arms and ammunition to the belligerents in Europe. This reason is well understood in Germany and Austria,' although it is never admitted by the anti-ammunition bri gade in this country who are shriek ing for an, embargo. Our right to ship arms "and ammu nition Is n'-t questioned by anybody. We are asked to stop on "higher moral grounds," and dictates of expediency.-But there is one dictate to which we must listen, and that is the dictate of self-preservation. To for feit our right to ship arms, by plac ing an embargo, would likewise for feit our right to receive arms in case of war between us and some other nation. Dr. Constantin Dumba, re called ambassador from Austria un derstood this very thoroughly and apparently did not disagree with the position- In his report to his own government (seized among the Arch ibald papers,) he puts the case for the United States very succinctly and clearly- Here is what he sa3rs: The true ground for the discourag ing attitude of the president (in re fusing an ammunition -embargo) as his confident, Mr. House, already in formed me in January and now has repated, is the fact that, the au thorities in a serious crisis would have to rely on neutral foreign coun tries for all their war materials- At no price, and in no case, will Mr. Wilson allow this source to dry up. ' This is simple and direct enough, and it is evident from the way that Dr. Dumba put the report to his gov ernment, -that he realized the force of the argument and the hopelessness of attempting-to contravert it. In fact, he specifically advised his gov ernment that to reopen the question would not only be inadvisable, but distinctly dangerous After Dr. Dumba has thus set forth the case to his own- government isn't it time for the unofficial German pro pagandists in this country to "dry up" on the subject.? Safety First! (New York Sun.) Whether the inspection system by which the public is safeguarded along the line of the new subways was faulty and thus responsible for the accident on Seventh avenue yes terday will be disclosed by the in quiries already begun. Hitherto the work on these railroads has proceed ed with a minimum of inconvenience, and the disturbance of the highways under which they lie has been rediic ed in a remarkable degree. But the fatal upheaval of yesterday will arouse the fearp of the millions whose daily business takes them over these mines, and the . authorities must roc ognize the necessity of reassuring them. It will not do to say that there have been few accidents, that the record of safety is excellent, that no scheme of engineering can guarantee us against misadventures.. The Public Service Commission and the city au thorities are under, obligation to serve something besides generalities to us, not " only with regard to the cause of the' Seventh avenue cavein but as to the protection afforded-at all points on the underground railroad. As Munsterburg Sees It. . (Bridgeport Standard.) Professor Hugo Munsterburg of Harvard University, made a statement at considerable length in the New York Times of Sunday, which he might have made before with jus tice to himself and with good effect upon his German fellow-countrymen in the United States But it does not come too late even now and holds many a needed lesson for their con sideration. He explains that he is a German and expects to continue so. There is no hyphen In his national composition. When he accepted the professorship at Harvard which he still holds he did so on the express understanding that . he was to remain a German. Then as to the conduct of the German-Americans he feels that it is not unnatural that they should entertain a prejudice for the land of their birth, or the land of their fathers and, grandfathers and he finds nothing dishonorable in that fact, but he finds a more serious state of affairs when, with mass meetings and as semblies,, with resolutions, etc., and "under the whip of the war," the Teutonic masses began to insist on a forceful influence on the national life of the country. This he condemns as the "forming of an alien party on American soil, of a state within the state, of an anti American army." He considers the indignation which thus has awakened national and inevitable, and says that it is a question with some "who were born on German soil," if this move ment of the German-Americans "may not contradict their oath to the great republic." This position is entirely honorable to Professor Munsterburg and puts him ' in a far better light than that in which he has been held by those who have judged him as a German-American using the privileges of his acquired citizenship against the country which he had voluntarily adopted. His article is a long and somewhat elaborate account of the differences between the Germans and American political systems and he maintains with a considerable show of fact and of logic, that the action of the German Reichstag is "based on the freest manhood suffrage of any country in Europe, incomparably frer than the vote in England." Without accepting his dictum that the German military, political and social system is the best and strong est, one cannot read his article through and not aree with him that the effectiveness of the German army today,, and the effectiveness of the McMillan's NEW BRITAIN'S BUSIEST BIG STORE "ALWAYS RELIABLE'.'-. i COTTON BLANKETS. 10- 4 size in White or Grey, suitable for cots or cribs, 69c pair. 11- 4 SIXE COTTON BLANKETS, at 98c and $169 pair.

MILAN t9-201-20.'5 IATX STJiFITT German people in political and domes tic affairs is the result of discipline beginning in the cradle almost and continued on through every depart ment of mature life. It will do any intelligent American good to read this article carefully, for it contains the most rational and understandable view that can be' found in a brief statement of the entire German policy Moreover it is worth while to con sider whether we can build up in this country anything so effective in its way by any other means. We, have acknowledged the need of discipline in our military and naval schools and some shadow of that requirement is maintained? in our other schools, but the go-as-you-please is the general rule and the limits are so widespread that definite and exact results are not io be expected. This does not mean that it is better to sacrifice the free and unrestricted course of the ln?ividuai will to the attainment of a high degree of na tional efficiency as Germany does, for the end may not justify the means but the end, if reached, must be by the use of the indispensable means. , Genius vs. Convention. (Bridgeport Farmer.) It will be noted that Edison and Ford, men of vast genius in mechani cal and scientific matters, see in the air ship and the submarine, the end of the dreadnought. But the more conventional minded men, who com pose the chiefs of the army and navy, cling, as is to be expected, with ten acity to the things with which they are familiar. It was always so, and will be so for a long time to come. The majority of mankind comprises well meaning, fairly competent men and women who have learned well enough how to deal with things as they are. The men who have the imagination to see things as they are to be, who have the industry to stick to their vision until the old thing is replaced with the better one, are a very un common kind of men. Not many of them are born in any generation. The tendency of the unbiased por tion of the population, whose minds are blank regarding.' armament, or nearly so. will be to follow Edison and Ford. We may feel' sure therefore of e. multiplication of submarines and air ships, when plans for American coast defense are formulated. Popular opinion will compel it. Anthony Comstock. (Waterbury American.) Few people knew that Anthony Comstock was by birth a Connecticut man, having been born in New Ca naan, and that in 1863 he joined the Seventeenth Connecticut Volunteers, serving until the close of the war. He showed his Yankee blood early. Anthony Comstock was the greatest power in the United States in the fight to have the young from the dan gers of early , contamination by stop ping the spread of obscene literature.
