It la a predic tion that war has received Its death blow, by George Allan England, Social ist candidate for governor of Maine In 1912, and it la given out at a most unpropitioua time for the writer’s rep utation as a prophet. Take the clos ing paragraphs, for example, In the light of the bulletins arriving hourly from IJege, Namur and Mulhausen: "The end of war, for all time, B now definitely in sight. The working class has at last felt its power; and that power la steadily growing. I now express my firm belief that, through the well-formulated sad coherent antl milltarlsir. of the rapidly increasing So cialist party all over the world. Mars has already received his deathblow. "Many competent thinkers doubt that monarchs, and capitalists behind them (as also behind all the world’s so-called ’republics’), will ever again he able to hurl the workers of qne na tion blindly against those of another for power and profit. Such wars as may yet take place will occur between nations In one or both of which the So cialist movement Is still weak and un developed. Year by year, even day by day. the potential war theater is nar rowing. It shrinks In proportion with the spread of proletarian education along Socialistic lines; the two social factors occupy an inverse ratio to each other. "The whole puppet system of dynas ties and monarchs, of strutting ‘heroes’ and brass-buttoned ‘patriots’ is fast becoming an absurdity, a survival, an anachronism. War will perish with It and with capitalism. The workers will have none of any of these things. By the end of the present century they The Cry of the Soldier’s Wife ANDREW RAE MacDONALD Farewell, my heart! When duty calls thee, go! What la my sorrow? Hark to how the foe Marshal along the border; and the drum Calls thee to arms! And should I hold thee home, With soft caress to calm my craven fears! What reck has France of our hot, bitter tears— War knows not these! Heed not my grievlngs and my swift alarms; The Mareechal of France has called to arms! HesSians and Prussians, burning as they go Through France, will leave their train of grief and woe! Go! And In these dark, dreary days of mine, I’ll pray before the Virgin's holy shrine Upon my knees! I could not give thee up to aught but France. But, when the blood-red sun from German lance Throws livid streaks of light across the day, And men have died, I could not bid thee stay! Yet, It is not men alone who bear the strife! O, Mary, hear the anguished prayer of wife! Th# women’s pleas! will all have become obsolete. Our great-grandchildren can hardly be made to believe that human beings ever actually killed, each other in mass es at the command of entrenched cap ital. "The Soclalisft of today always and everywhere protest against the killing of human beings, whether that killing be gradual, as by starvation or in aweat-shopa. mills and factories; whether It be sudden, as in mine ex plosions; whether it be legalized, aa in the electric chair or on the gallows; or whether it be done on the field of battle by men in uniform who. at last analysis have no quarrel with each other. "Thou Shalt Not Kill!" is. to them, a very real and binding impera tive. "Ingersoll’s tremendous 'Vision of the Future,’ in which he foresaw 'a world at peace • • • a world where thrones have crumbled and where kings are dust,” is fast becom lnd solid fact. And not from above is this new Ideal being handed down. It Is being thrust up from below, from the world’s disinherited, from the till now unheard and socially unconscious millions. This New Spirit, leading on to peace, fs today the most vital, su premely the most significant moving force at work among mankind. "Anew spirit. Indeed, has breathed over the face of things. Vast read justments have already taken place, presaging others still to be. others still more revolutionary. atill more magnificent in their promise of Peace on Earth, Good-will to Men. A world emancipated from the thrall of war. long oflly the speculation of philoso phers, is growing real and tangible; for the nations, the common people of the earth, are beginning to share that dream—and 'the dreams that nations dream, come true.’ ” Banks Refusing Currency Will Be Punished Severely By OILS ON GARDNER. WASHINGTON, Aug. 12.—Money should be available at all national banks for the settlement of every legitimate demand. The comptroller of currency will deal severely with any national bank refusing currency payments. The Aldrlch-Vreeland cur rency Is available to all national banks and the government will not permit any federal bank to substitute clear ing house checks or any other form of currency. There are 14 currency as sociations, by joining one of which any national bank can secure the cur rency. Failure to take advantage of the law and to comply with the comptroller’s wish will be looked upon by the latter as a deliberate ef fort by the bank to hoard money and raise Its Interest rate. • • • It is In order for the British ship, Essex, now cruising somewhere off our Atlantic coast, to pick up the two German gunboats, Dresden and Brew lau, which are menacing commerce on the transatlantic steamship highway to Europe.

The next big news of the war ought to be a naval engagement, whose results would help to clear the seas and open a way to the resumption of commerce. • a e Foreigners now In the United States ought to be Informed that they need not heed proclamations by their for mer home governments, calling them back for military service.
