Diplom?tically speaking, i.ermany and Austria
Hungary ha?c bom so far outgenoralled. They
ha\e n?>t been able to put themselves before the
WUni in the light of power- Coereefl into war.
Au-tr:a Hungary (Pd ?? foolhardy thing in in-istim:
on dealing with Servia by force, instead of obtain
Iflg what In- v.i.nterl by diplomatic mean?. The
Vicuna government undoubtedly took Berlin by
f ?yurpri-?-, and (?crmany hesitated too long about
' /?ringing pressure ou Austria Hungery to compel the
*# latter to rrsrede.
IV stability of the Trip!?? Alliance was shaken
Whei th.- Dual Monnrchy and Germany both en
gaged in oftensire war. since their taking the
initiative gave Italy a welcome excuse for slipping
out of the Triple Alliance compact. Bismarck is
dead, and he has not left apt successors in Berch
tiiold aud Bethuiaiin-Hollwcg.
Germany also offcud.-d international opinion
when she violated yesterday the neutrality of Lux?
emburg. In order to gain a military advantage
she ri-l.o?! ?iflcnding Belgium and Holland and
irritating Groal Britain. If Luxemburg's neu?
trality is ni't -?-cure, why should Belgium's be in?
violable? Both arc guaranteed by international
rroattao, 111 * - ?rkdatloa of which by a belligerent
must put that belligerent on the d?'fensive in th?*
groat tribunal of world opinion.
The diplomacy which left Italy a loophole
through which to OOCapO from the burdeus of the
Tr pie Alliance, and which outraged the neutrality
i'f Luxemburg in order to .strike a sudden blon?
dit France, is not the diplomacy of far-seeing
i.ermany doobtlOM iMBsal to repeat the tbunder

What Is Contraband of War?
Of groat interest to Aiuoricau shippers is ihe
question of what cargoes may lie safely shipped to
belligerents. Confusion still exists in the definition
of contraband goods, lmt thanks 1 <? the r>,ufereii'.'o
??t London, held m lims-?>;?, certa iu general prob
abilities can be laid down.
Arms, auiuiunitie'ii, etc.. are known as '"absokiU?
? ..ntrabaiid" ami are liable lo seizure when shipped
bj a neutral l<> the t? irituiy of a belligerent. l'oo?l
?tnfll and fuel. <'l?'thio;:. r_r??l<!. vessels, railway
and i(-le-'_raph e?|iiipiiienl. ballociis and flying ma
chin??s end similar arti.-les whi?'h can be used i?i
?varfare, hot irh-ch are m.t a?B0BB8Brlly so used, ?are
tii ?e.eel 'conditional contraband.'' They are sub
,ioc! lo ?SaptUra <>niy if ?I i- thOWS thai the goods
aie- etc-tincd for the use of armed lorcos. final!,
there is a e ?.nsiderahlo number of articles whi.h
cannot ho regarded as contraband ?if ?war under
any conditions. The list of goods esinipt from
scizur" comprises such prodimts as ran- cotton and
i the other raw ?materials of the textile industri",,
raw- hides, ores, paper, machinery and furniture.
This classiticatiou follows ?omiuon sense distinc?
tions, it will be ?awn, the exempt list comprising all
those articles which are not t.usceptiblo of use 1,1
war. I'nfortiinatoly, there is some doubt to what
extent these rules of Ihe l>oelarati<m of London
will be binding in a Luropean war. This lotinlry
has ratified these rules, but. some other countries
have not. and there may be nations whi? h will d<
clare their own rule s m t > contraband, varying . i
certain respects from the above. The subjoi-t has
been a fruitful source of diplomatic wrangling in
the past, and it is ?seles-* to ??xjxH-t complete agree?
ment in the future.
Inder all precedents, contraband goods are liable
!?> condemnation, and the vessel as well may be
ceiudemned if the contraband cargo forms mor?
than half of tin? total cargo, reckoned cil h. r by
value, weight, volume or freight. Such shipmeni
???.nstitute no \ie?lation of neutrality, however, am!
there is no obligation ii|?on a neutral nation t..
prevent its citizens from shipping a whole boatload
of arms if tln-y desire to do so mid care to run th??
rtt of confiscation in the e\??nf of capture.
duo moot problem relates to indirect shipment
(ieneially speaking, commerce hotwven neutrals is
undisturbed by war. But Lngland ori-tinatcd th.?
doctrine of "continuous voyage's,'' by which a bel?
li ?_?(? rent ?ould look t" the ultimate de-tinatmn ?.f ;i
cargo, and if that de-tination was t?i be t ht* terri
tory of a belligerent the conten?!?!- ?-?mid at c?n.-e
?total th?' shipment a- I'ontraband under Urn gen
?Ni mies. The olijiie-es are that this doctrine will
prevail In future wars.
of ?cuirse, when a blockade has been publicly
declared and made actually erlectivc, a ?lifTerem
situation arises. Then any running ?u the block?
ade subjects vessel and cargo to seizure, regaitlle---s
of tlm nature of th earfO ??r its destinaM.iu. The

cating hew little regard th? pol'tical

It U Asked.
To the Editai of The Tribune.
Sir: Mr. Hinman takes great cr?ait
for his bravery in flouting Barnes, bu;
has he enough real courage to state
?eher? h" Itaoda on the particular prin
dplea about, winch the Republican and
Progressive parties differ?
It ifl always commendable to try to
remOYfl the malign influence of corrupt
-, but that is not the sole and only
. to be considered. The Governor
of the ??t?te, in addition to being our
??kief administrativ? office, has a ?rery
crest influence over our legislation. Ii"
Hinman were Governor would h?
ci-e that influence and pow'cr COB*
lateatly with the principles of .ho
Republics.1 party, or would he endeavor
to commit the stale to Roosevelt poli?
Without ducuosing woman's suffrage
and some other Roosevelt ideas, let 1110
remind you of the fact that Roose?
velt has time and time again biit?rly,
savagely aaaailed the courts in this
state as well as in the nation and na*
rapreaaatod himself a? striving with
the utmost zeal to put the recall into
operation. When you begin to tinker
with the structure of the judicial ?ans
of the government of the state you nre
undertaking something that is of vi.-l
concern to every one, and it is th.?re

If Mr. Hiuniaii RBI convictions and
has the courage of his convictions he

nice in the State Senate I am impelled
to comment upen them.
As to the "short ballot" plan I
think most everybody hi airrerd. But
v it h respect to giving to the (?ovcrnor
the right to introduce bills and sup?
port thorn on the floor of th? UflllatWa
. and empowering the Governor,
instead of the Assembly, to prepare
and latredaea the annual budget, and
requiring him to answer, at statfd
. on the floor of the houses in?
terpellation? addressed to nun by mem
of the Legislature, there is a
?ride Bald for divergence of aaiaian.
In the tu t place, many of oa Mill be?

idea of a ?state budget is ex?
cellent, Lut tot it be made up in the
A?-cmbly by a committee on the bud
Set, composed of the administrative
heads of departments, ?ho shall have
neat? in the lower house, with the
right to introduce bills, and, arhi
?(i|u ,ed by it, uttend its meeting;
answer question? put to them by any
member relating to departmental Bi?
lans, provided reasonable notice of the
quittions to be put la given. Depart?
ment heads to have th?; right to the
floor in the Assembly, but no right to
vote. The Legislature to be permitted
to cut down the appropriation recom?
mendations of the budget committee,
but not to raise them. Seetio i ti oi
the Greater New York (.'harter contains
such provisions for the heads of tho
administrativa departments of f.hc c ty
liient iii the make-up of the
Hoard of Ahleimcn.
By providing, further, that no bill
shall pass both houses, unless accom?
panied by an emergency message from
the Governor, until the budget had
i, u plan fer accelerating legis
actiea in this particular is pro?
vided. While the budget is being acted
upon a deferred calendar of bills for
ti nul passage in both houses would
take care of pending legislation.
My giving to the administrative
heads o? departments the right to in?
troduce bill* the Governor could ac?
complish his legislative efforts a- trail
as if In? had the right of introduction
himself, and such bills would, of
course, be known as administrative
measures; further, the Governor's
arguments in support of administra?
tiv ?? measures could be made by the

bates would in no way detract from

might not be the case in event the'
