Anglo-German Rivalry — The Decla
ration of London.
London. March Ml
---. a*JCI of the Declaration of London will be
yubllfhe<s when Englishmen are suffering from
a bad attack of nerves, This may be unfortu

is abnormally 6UFpicloits respecting German

that th* liw»msjfut bureau of the Admiralty
has not known what was going aa at Berlin.
Kiel and Essen. The naval experts and polit
|oaJ alarmists, -who have been startled by min
isteriaJ confessions that they have only recently
been impressed with the rapid increase In Ger
man plants for the production of Dreadnoughts,
will be predisposed to believe that th© govern
merit hap allowed itself to be duped and over
reached In the International Conference. The
Declaration, signed by representatives of the ten
important maritime powers, will be taken up
cautiously and discussed with suspicion and re
-«rve The thought uppermost in every critic's
mind will be: "What effect will It have upon
the coming war between England and Ger
many?" That conflict has loomed up within a
fern days as a contingency, which is to tv» guard
ed acainst by enormous expenditures for the
dominating type of battleship. "Germany means
business la challenging British supremacy in sea
rower!" That is what men have said In and out
of Parliament, and rvery Journal in the kingdom
has seriously discussed the necessity for pre
paring tor the greatest naval war of modern
tim*>.«. The new code for the regulation of
belligerent operations and neutral commerce.
must be critically examined when alarmists are
" shrieking for eight Dreadnought* annually in
ylac" of four, and even economists are clamor
!r.g for additional taxation on a large scale, as
■indispensable to public safety.
On th« other hand, th* Declaration will be
brought to light when everybody in the Kingdom
is thinking about a naval warfare and deeply

Without doubt that will be the principal con

ar wherever a great naval war Is fought; and
there is not a clause or a line in the. new cod« :
which will interfere In the slightest degree, with
this supreme struggle of the belligerents. Th«
fighting ships wilt Dot be hindered in doing the
wcrk for which they were designed. They ar«
left to fight it out as Boon as they are within
firing distance. » restraints are placed upon
belligerent rights In obtaining a decisive com
mand of th«» sea by the capture or destruction of
th* enemy's fleet. When that strategic advan
tsg* has been gained in the hypothetical war
between England and Germany, which is now
<!;s~ussed daily in print and in conversation,
• '•- will be another series of operations more.
<>r less prolonged in duration, and th» new code
will hay» an important bearing upon them.
There will be a coast to blockade: there will
Vc a commerc* to be vigilantly watched and
constantly held up. and there will be serious
risks of drawing outsid« powers into the con
f.ict if neutral rights arc wantonly interfered
•with. Th*> International Conference has made
s E*r;eral survey of these complex questions and
provided a code fo r minimizing the evils of war.
Th« fact that Germany under the?" interna
tional arrang*m*»nts will have a neutral base of
?\ippUe* in war time cannot escap* the attention
-' critics. German ports may b* blockaded by

ir.tn the ccnSict-
Whfl« the insular kingdom would not ha.v- in
tirr.» of war th»» corresponding advantage of a
Dentral ha-e. of supplies with short lines of
transshipment by land, it would be highly
favored in many respects by th« proposed reg
ulatirin of belligerent and neutral rights. A dec
laration of war with Germany would temporarily
double or quadrupl* the prices of food in Eng
land, cut off the cotton and other industries
from regular supplier of raw material and in
terrupt the carrying trade with the empire and
the world. The effect of the Conference, code
would speedily be produced and the disturbance
caused by .war would b» minimized. As an ef
fective blockade of the British coast would be
impracticable. eases if command of the sea were.
lost by the main fleet of fighting ships, there
would be a free passage of breadstuff's, cotton
end other staple*, and the export trade would
not be pormaneEtly interrupted. Cotton and
other articles on the free list could not be seized
■- any circumstances, and food supplies essen
tial to the existence of the population could not
be diverted from their destination unless they
wer«- definitely tainted a*! conditional contra
band by being directly connected with squadron
or garrison. The Declaration o* London, with
out materially impairing belligerent rights, es
tablishes 6afeguards for neutral trade which
will be of inestimable value to England in a
war for tea power. It will help to protect her
egalnst high prices of food and against starva
tion, and to ke«p her industrial population em
ployed and her foreign commerce afloat.
For the moment Englishmen are preoccupied
with the possibility of a war in which there

There was a healthy flnw of Mood in the first
af the two concerts given by Mr. Gustav Mahler
with the orchestra of th* Philharmonic Society at
Carnegie Hail last night. In fact, nearly every
thing about it was so normal that little occasion
can be found for discussion of detail-. Mr. Mahler
in the choice, of his programme, gave an indication
tliat he does not believe in '■"■:;? lists- that an hour
end a half of jtood music is as much as anybody
re-Ms at a sitting. The Boston Orchestra used to
follow the same rule and wa? voted blessed in con
sequence; but even it has lapsed from this most
admirable virtue of late, and it was gratifying to
have an exhibition of it at ■ concert which in the
nature of thing* was a profrn'>«ti' - atlon 'or many
mael • next year. Mr. Mahler opened the con
cert with an overture — Schumann's "Manfred":
then he played Beethoven* seventh F.vmrhony;
after that there was an Intermission and th* con
clusion was made with W&cner'.- "Sieirfrled
Idyl" and the overt-ire to "Tannhauser."

Governor and Seth Loic Address Au
. dience in Late Pastor's Church.
As ■ tribute to the late Dr. Theodore Cuyler,
Governor Hughes, Beth Low and others united last
night with a great audience in the Lafayette Ave
nue Presbyterian Church, Brooklyn, in a celebra
tion of his civic services. It was right and fitting
the Governor said, thai he should be there in his
ofßcJaJ character. Dr. Cuyler and men of his type
were the foundation builders of our Institutions.
and the states and the, nation should recognize this
obllsration. Ex-Mayor Low's warm praise of Mrs.
Cuyler in the course of bis tribute to her husband
won ringing applause.
The Governor appeared ear';. The reat audi
ence arose; and <-heered him with a verve that
showed the warmth of the welcome. He said it.
was a privilege to visit that scene of service and to
have the opportunity to join in the tribute to the
noble man of God and leader of the people. He
I cannot speak of close acquaintances lip. nor do
1 com* to you as an intimate of Dr. I uyler (-.
I must speak of the deep obligation 1 feel to MS
larger ministry beynart the bounds' of this corn
munity. As a young man 1 used to read Ills weekly
articles, and 1 cannot overstate what 1 owe to him
II" possessed that power of uplift which stimulates
our energies, urges us en to achievement, to tne
search for the better things of life. .
It is fitting thai < should he t>eie in my official
character as Governor. We must recognize men
like Dr. Cuyler n« one of the great forces thai make
for the foundation of our Institutions The < - "ar
acter of our laws depends upon the character of the
individual citizen, n.i that depends upon the viril
ity, the wisdom, the consecration of our religious
leaders. Those who Impress upon our citizenship
the necessity of leading honorable lives make lor
honesty in office, honesty of governments.
Dr. (uyler was one of these forceful leaders. Gov
ernor Hughes said, nnd the state of New York ac
cordingly paid its tribute to the great moral leader
who made for noble aspiration in citizenship. He
1 am one of tboee who look to the fut\ir« with
confidence, net with blind faith, but with history
a.« the guide. The path of man is upward and on
ward to the divine goal. They get theii impetus
from the heritage left by m»n like Dr. C lyler. The
people of the united States will remain religious,
you may be sure It Is Ineradicable in the human
soul, and Deeds but to be touched by the great
rHigloufi leader to i*ar fruit. And no matt what
the differences of a sectarian nature may be, the
great leader benefits the whole race, men of all
Will we see hi" like again? Yes. but perbai not
men of such diversified attainments. Bui we. must
look forward to tie triumph of yet other noble
lives. Dr. Cuyler seemed to realise all that was
necessary to the successful religious, the moral life
The sincere purpose, the avid strength to accom
plish, we cannot afford to lose. We can got along
more easily without Governors as . legislatures than
without men like Dr. Cuyler.
This brought out a cheer and laughter. The Gov
ernor then said thai the success of the future de
pended upon the youi men. and upon prenchers
like Dr. ' 'uyler, who could reach them. He ne
lieved jr. what he preached, he sa>>l Ke was zeal

Dr. Cuyler led hi? beautiful life b«ca-i«e he tva*
true to his Ideals. He nevrr allowed other thing*
to deflect him from the course he thought h<>nor

tne;e pleasure of reading, but for in*; purpose of
studying the motive*, the many phases of llf 4
which mak*- up the •< hole Of some gre.it man. But
better thai Hograrhy is the . oinlng In contact
with m'n of high Idea - and Inflexible .v.urage.
The who - ' ntted ptnfe« has mativ men nil
lealnu* for th* welfare of th»ir particular corrt

when you meet men like Dr. Cujrler you reailz*
that the da}* <}( the prophets have jjot j.a!>*ed
These memorlßlK are promise* of greater things 'o
come until under th? providence of <Jod n« realize
. ur greater destiny.
Ms- or 7 s*y * address was i recognition of
Dr. Curler's services to the city, and he spoke a-«
one who "knew the man and had loved him " Dr.
Cuyler ■Has from first to last » pa*tor and a
preacher. Mr. liow said, and II '« ." especially from
the platform that be had influence^ tt-.« ]|f- of hU
times. He continued:
Dr. Cuyler said, nf him«elf that early In his min
istry he deliberately determined •.. j. a «t<-,r
rather than a student: and I suppose if to he true
that 1? was by bringing his warm heart and con
secrated spirit Into p»r«onal tr.wh with young and
o;d that he accomplished his preatos! work Hut
I? ■« also true that, without being a student, he
d&liher«te]y sought to reach a wider audience than
roui<i be personally addn from the pulpit of
the tfayette Avenue Church. His Industi was
unqurstionnbly one of Ihe great sources of iil*=
power. During all his active ministry, when h"
w«,« striving by Indefatigable labors to know hrs
p»ople us a muai< lan know* his "core.", he never
"lifTercd a week to pass without writing st least
one letter for 'he religion* press and into th«\=e
letters he wrote tb* discoveries which he had mad*
In the book of life, as these things ar*. recorded In
th» human bee 1 1
It is to Mrs. Cuyler, and the coirjfort and i>e;p r,{
her love, and to her constant inspiration, that the
inj^ref6s of hi" pastorate and long service to the
worM m largely «sne. Ma: 1 pause long enough
In these remnrks to nay to Mrs. <*uyler. on behalf
of the larger congregation to whom l>r. Cuyler
spoke, and the larger community to which he mln
i«t»r»-d. that we mite her with him In all our
thoughts of gratitude to God for what Dr. Cuyler
was and did.
Mr Low recalled the struggles attend g lh«
building of the church in the i'i\il War, when I
building operations In Brooklyn had beei
pended ' • 'er said, speaking i '
twenty-flfth anniveraarj
' From Its tower Boated that day the
our country; on Its pulpit was lifted th<
tfie cross. God helping us, neither ban ler ■ '
ever come dow n "
But Dr. Cuyler neve* subordinated the preaching
of the Gospel to ctvio causes, Mr. Low sal, and, on
the other hand he never failed to speak and write
effectively in the public Interest whenever oppor
tunUy ofT«>red. Mr. I»w said:
To the d«y of his death there "as scarcely a
Presidential election i:. which he did not take the
platform. A Republican In politic^ and loyal to hia
party, he never concealed his views and he never
hesitated to criticise when he thought his party
was wrong. He threw himself also into th» local
campaigns, when he thought the mum at stake
were Bufflclently imports',! to justify -such action.
Preaching as he did to a large congregation rep
resenting undoubtedly every conceivable politi'-ni
opinion. It Is notable that hi." political activity
never exposed him either to criticism or to misun
derstanding. This circumstance Is « testimonial
valuable beyond ail words to his transpare .sin
cerity, to his common sense and to ins fairness
toward those from whom he differed
In a very real s*-nso every good pastor is a good
citizen, for he. is constantly strengthening the foun
dations upon which the safety of the Mate depends.
In this aspect of good citizenship Dr. Cuyler was
second to none who las ever filled a pulpit in the
city of Brooklyn or anywhere In the United State*
;»ut lie added to this generic service » partlclpatioi
in public affairs which b*i been pointed out, which
gave to him a distinct Influence In this community
and in the country in behalf of the things In which
he believed.

Criticism and Pessimism.
Hail "Optimist Day!" Avaunt "All Fools" Day!"'
As the hands of the clock pointed to th« hour of
midnight last night three hundred men and women
of the six hundred who were present earlier in the
night at the first dinner of the Optimist Club, at
the Waldorf, arose and greeted the new day of
observance with the singing of "The Star Spangled
Banner." It was the "supremest" moment of many
supreme moments enjoyed last night by William
J. Robinson] "optimist at Large." whose idea it
was, and ' a magnificent idea," too. he said.
Aside from an optimistic letter from President
Taft and similar communications from Joseph H.
Choate, Andrew Carnegie. Kate Douglas Wtggin
and other happy minded persons in the country
nnd the unusuaj purpose of the occasion, the trans
cending feature was the dominating spirit of the
nlsrht— William J. Robinson. Seated next the toast
master, the Rev. Thomas R. Slicer. he frequently
took the gavel in his own hand, assuming direction
of the programm?.
Behind the speakers" table against the wall, in
red white and blue electric lights, was the in
signia of the club, with the motto "Smile!" In the
centre. And there wasn't one person in that big
ball room who didn't smile when he or she wasn't
The letter of President Taft aroused genuine en
thusiasm. It read:
Cincinnati, February is. 1909.

Optimist's magazine toward th« preseni conditions.

does not believe that better tilings can be brought
about is not the man likely to bring better things
The' spirit of hypcrcrlticism. and the uncom
promising attitude which will not accept .' Some
progress is better than none," and the insistence
upon the full realization of the highest ideals and
the rejection of any compromise which accom
plishes sood. are all Ukely to retard progress i on
start criticism and constant pessimism are pro
ductlve of paralysis ana stagnation .
N ,, one who wishes to do anything and bring
about real reforms should allow himself to re^rt
from day to day editorials and ether printed artt
<-1p«. the tone of which is pessimistic and h> per
ng will take wul of him 'he en

Mr. t'hoate sent this telegram:
Sorry to miss the Optimist Club dinner. I am sure
it will do much good by making everybody look on
the bright side and hope for the best. Faint heart
never won anything;.
Mr. Carnegie wrott? as follows:
Quite rlr'it. dear Mr. Sllcer. th« optimist is
rr-f^ied th^se riays Never was there causi for such
exultation; never has any century made such prog
j-reu us the last. . „
Instead of niniv :nsr over imperfections we should
tak" a ;!an.'<. backward ;ind rejoice that man was

nun m-.il absorbing its lualiZing light. Always
ascending never retrograding. No mit to his
BBcent slwrt of perfection. This is the rock of my
Ka!vatton. All Is writ since all prows better. Suc

Mrs. K.ve Douglas Wlggin pent this greeting:
W« hay» hRd all sorts of "endless chains." Think
of starling an endl'-ss <ham of smiles— each little

th« ir-i'-'-nnd-seek play of a dimple, the curve of a
lip nr ..f network of ioy lines in a merry face!
The <hHin would be Mr«-!ifrth'?n»d every time w«

Mr. S!t-er said In his Introductory speech:

is the subject of criticism by one part of the people
and the representative of resentment by the other.
I think there l>« a general feeling all over the
'and that we have had enough of moral massag".
All massage is a form of passive, exercise, and
pa«oive exercise grows unwelcome in time, to a
healthy human being.

Disordered Digestion, a Doctor Sar/s,
Comes from Head Not Stomach.
They do not know It. thousands of Ban In
this city, and probably they never would have
guessed If. but the reason why they have been
doleful for years and are now unhappy is that
they have brain dyspepsia. Dr. Samuel G. Tracy,
of No. 240 West KCd street, said so yesterday.
He read a paper before the Bloomingdale clinic,
in which he asserted that an irritated brain centre
was the cause of many cases of dyspepsia, usu
ally looked upon as resulting from a disordered
state of the stomach. For instance, he said, a
sick headache is not due primarily to a distressed
stomach, but rather to an irritated brain.
Assured, then. In one's own mind that brain dys
pepsia is the thing which has caused all the
trouble, what Is the best, way to charm It away?
Dr. Tracy says he has the answer. He has in
his office what he calls a condenser chair, which
is Insulated. The patient Is placed in Mm chair
and connected with one pole of the hyfrex coil.
The, circuit Is complete through the atmosphere
In this way. Dr. Tracy says, the patient acts as a
reservoir for high frequency electric currents.
"While taking this treatment." the physician
continued, "thousands of volts and millions of os
cillations may be given to the patient without his
feeling any disagreeable sensation; yet the power
of the current Is so great that It will light up a
vacuum tube if one Is held In the patient's hand.
"Vacuum tubes, through which the electric cur
rents pass, are applied locally to the base of thn
brain and over the solar plexus and stomach. In
this case the high frequency electric current? are
also obtained from the Hyfrex coil. ' A flexible wire
is attached to the coil, and the other end to the
vacuum tube; the electric current now passes
through the vacuum tube with a beautiful violet
Dr. Tracy said that:
W#en the electrically lighted violet tub* Is ap
plied over the base of the brain it acts as a seda
tive to the irritated centres which preside over the
stomach. With its application over the solar plexus
and pit of the stomach it stimulates the nerve* of
the Stomach to pour out a better quantity ana
quality of gastric juice. At the same time ozon" is
projected into the tissues and has an antiseptic
effect on the part- After a series of these elec
trical treatments the general system is Improved
and the nerves of- th» stomach become more nor
mal in their action. So after a time the stomach
performs its natural physiological function.
The doctor illustrated his remarks by sitting hi
the condenser chair and showing the. various etage9
of the treatment.
Precautions at Naples — Many Mes

Naples. March Authorities here are taking ex
traordinary precautions to insure th« safety of
