I* tba fatal blunder of tbe Kaiser and bis war party In tearing op "a scrap of paper" and In radin? Belgium required any fnrther proof or dem? onstration the case of the atrocity charges gives oil .that could be required. The military aspect may be left to one side, though in the story of the great war yet to be written the delay at LlOge, small and brief as .t was in comparison with later days of destruction, will loom large as determining factor. We point now to th? influence which that initial barbarity and breach of faith hare had in forming impartial oplnloD the world round. We are bound to say that in .tself the erldence of German atrocities against indlrldnals produced by the Belgian commi slon is fir from convincing. There is too much generalisation and not enough specific accusation. Terrible as are the specific case? cited, we must even go so far as to say that, accepting them as true, they are scarcely more than tb? list of outrages which are unavoidable in 'be wake of s great army overrunning a hostile coun? try. There are hideously Hclous individuals In an army, as In a community, and war gives their bar? barous instincts full swing. Were the German offi? cial record clear of foul play there could scarcely be question of American hope and belief in the general uprightness of the German soldier. But the Kaiser from the star* did his best to prejudice civilised opinion again*, his nation. la armies went into Belgium not In honest quarrel with her people, but in riolati >n of a pledged word, without pretence of justification. Howevei history may read the causes of the greater struggle, th?re can be no question of the criminal outrage wrought against Innocent Belgium. Sent **ient flared up In this country as the news arrived, and the founda? tion for believing ill of the German invaders was quickly laid. There .allowed two unforgettable incidents?the Zeppelin attack apea Autwerp and the burning of Louvaln. Both were gross violations of the rules of civilized warfare and both exhibited a disre? gard of human life and property impossible to rec? oncile with modern standards. Both episodes arc conceded faet, the burnirg of Louvaln being ad? mitted by the Kaiser in his message to President Wilson. More, the Kaiser defended tbe burning of LouYain on military grounds, while professing to lament the destruction of its artistic treasures. Here, then, was the invasion of a peaceful and inuocent nation, backed up by official acts of un? speakable barbarity and brutality. Small wonder that American indignation was strong and that re? ports of further atrocities by ndlvldual German soldiers were caugn? up and ifclieved. If the mili? tary leaders of Germany could direct such crimes against civilization, was anything unbelievable of tbeir subordinates ?We concede the superficial persuasiveness of such logic, but we think the Ameritan people must make n distinction between the German rulers and the German soldiers and reserve decision in the case Of the latter. There can be no defence of the Ger? man invasiou or the German crime 11 Antwerp and Louvain. There can be a defence, and there is, on the evidence thus fa-presented, likely to bea strong IsCaaeaj of the German soldieto from the charge of individual atrocities. President Wilson's words are strongly : ? the point here. The case is one that cannot be deeded on one sided evidence in tbe heat oi battle, it is essentially a charge which must bo left to the ?aimer days of peace for final judgment. The ruined walls of Louvaln are a silent accusa? tion of German militarism which no words can ever refute. The < !i < ?C8 0f atrocii" against the German rank and filo are no more r' -na- ictmen' vbich It will bo the hope of every falr-mirded American, maturer eYidene? will disprove. The Hoarder an Enemy of Society. , Though thrift, tbe ability to save, is at tbe bottom of civilisation, one of civilization's arch enemies is the practice of hoarding The two, outwardly simi? lar, are findamentally dissimilar?as dissimilar sa prudencs and panic. in their effect on modem induatrialism they are as diametrically opposed as food and .?oison. At sucb a time as this It is moat important that this distinction be generally recofralsed, since with th* dislocation of business nnd consequent unem? ployment, or threat of it. the temptation to hoard beeomss overstrong Those who buy huge quanti? fi?e of provisions for the purpose of storing them for the winter, when prioea may be higher, ara helping most powerfully to send those prices up to the seri?os injary, It may be, of their neighbors. Tboee who hoard their money Instead, snd refuse to satisfy reasonable wants It nr? rial quantity tr? leading all the aid they can to a further commsr dai aad flaaadai paralysis, which will bring about ta SM?a?awaM*****aBaMW*M-t*w-*-**-^^ jfor them and for others that which they most ! dreed?-unemployment An appeal to women shoppers now being made | by the Department ?tore Education Association strikes as as extremely timely snd to the point : Don't hoard either money or supplies. Buy aa usual within your meajja, and pay your debts promptly. Them are mottoes every housewife should keep constantly In mind for the welfare of the entire community. Htnman's Independence a Republican Asset. It Is a significant thing tint a large group of] i Republicans who served in the Senate with Ilarv??y j I). Hinman are working vigorously to bring about | his nomination as their party's candidate for Gov-| lernor. They are loyal Republicans, moved by the ! same desire for Republican vlctoi/ as that of any j other honest party meniber. They back Hinman 1 because their years' Intimate knowledge of his workj 'makes them believe him tbe best candidate tbej l?arty could present. No Republican should delude 'limself with the? ides that this election Is to be a "walkover." Every vote that can be attracted to the ticket will be needed. The party cannot nff rd to nominate any? body but ?rs.best man and Its best vote-getter. That '. roan Is Hinman. He Is honest and able?(?ovemor1 Hughes testified to that He has had eight years', valuable ? perlencc L state affairs. He Is fearless and liid?>pcndent of boss control. He ?lore not He, equivocate or wabble In any emergency, whatever the consiliences of directness and tnitb telling to himself. Hinman us the Republican candidate would get thousands of Bull Moose and independ?ut votes which no other Republieai could hope'for. Republicans will be foolish indeed if they do not t_ke advantage of this strength by nominating lura. ? James B. Sullivan. Every schoolboy lost a friend, every true sports? man a feHow worker and New York City a big, useful citizen when James EL .Sullivan died at Mount Sinai Hospital. With tireless energy and keen initiative be de? voted much of bis time to the betterment of social conditions through the encouragement of dean, wholesome athletics, and he stood and worked for all that was best In track and Held sports. For years Mr. Sullivan was the guiding hand ard controlling force in the Amateur Athletic Union, and ever commanded tie respect and ad? miration dm a big man. both in this country and abroad. It will be hard to rill his place. "Jim ' Sullivan will be missed. Democratic Economy and Jobholders' Pockets. Governor Glynn, campaigning t<? bold Albany t\>r Murphy, recites proudly that he saved the tax? payers $11.(*?0.000 this year by hi< vetoes That is a good record?but it is not the er tire record. The Governor omits to say that, while he vetoed ?exjienditures which will have to be made anyway next year, he did not cut out >ne Democratic job? holder's salary. Ile tails to tell that In 1913-1 j the appropriations for administrative state depart I ment? were more than fll.OOO.OOO greater than in 1009-'10 under Governor Hughes, incJndtag salary 'raises and new jobs. Democratic economy som?? times is a thing which puts public money into pri? vate pockets rather than into public service. Further Light on Germany's Responsi? bility. The latest British "white paper'' to be pub? lished furnishes new eviilm. < that Germany pre? cipitated a war that might have been avoided. Ac* cording to Sir Ma.irh ? de I'unsen, the British Am tiHs.sador at Vienna, Russia and Austria were 00 tbe point of composing tneir differences when Germany declared war upon Russia. According to Sir Maurice, the Russian Ambassador at Vlen-na Informed him that the Austrian Foreign oui.'', with which be whs laboring to preserve peace, after refusing on July 28 to permit ii - ambassador at St. Petersburg to furnish Couut Bzapary, n representativc at the Czar's capital, with full pow ei*s to continue conversations ?Uli Russia, con? sented to do so two days later. "Unfortunately," irrite- Sir Maurice, "these con? versations at St. Petersburg and Vienna were cut short by the transfer of the dispute to the more dangerous ground of a direct conflict between Ger? many and Russia.' Two ?lays after Austria hail yielded to the point of resuming conversstiona in St. Petersburg Germany declared war on Russia. That was on August 1, the day w hen the Kaiser either Wat led to bellete '?r pr.-l -mied to believe, on the basis of a telegram from his representative in London, Prince Uchnowsky that England had given him a free band !?> deal with Russia by guaranteeing the oeutrsllt} "T France in ease of war between Russia and Germany, on condition that Germany refrained from attacking France. On that date Prince Uchnowsky cabled the Ger ' man Chancellor as follows: Sir E. Grey just ask?d me by telephone whether I believed to be in a position to declare that we would not a'tack France in n wur between ?.itrmany and Russia in case Frnn<- 'hou'rl remain neutral. I de? clared I believed tc be able to give such an under? taking. [Signed] UCHNOWSKY. The Kaiser on reading this message telegraphed the King of England that he had "just received the communication from your government offering French neutrality under guarantee ?if Great Brit? ain." And Bethmnnu-Hollweg telegraphed to Uchnowsky that Germany was ready to accept *be British "proposal" in <-ase England would use her armed forces to enforce the neutrality of Fra.ice. which she offered to guarantee! War on Russia was declared the same day. Its declaration seem to bear a close relation to the talk of Sir Edward Grey and the version <( it telegraphed to Rerltn by Uchnowsky. Austria was on t ie point of com? promise when Germany, ucouraged i?/ what it road into the wonls of Sir Edward, Grey, struck at Russia. It is not clear what the British For? eign Secretary had in mind when he discussed Germany's course in case France refrained from helping ber ally, Russia. But the telegram ot Uchnowsky Is very far from suggesting any offer on the part of England of neutrality on the part of France or of a guarantee of such neutrality. To plunge into war on a hasty readin,- of a rather vague telegram was reckless; to plunge Into if when Austria was on the point of compromise was wanton and wicked. Germany clearly desirert war. As Sir 'leurice <le I.unsen gay?*, tbe danger point of Europe shifted from Vienna to Berlin two or tbre_ days before tbe great conflict began. Ger | msny bungled and miscalculated, misread tele I grams and misjudged European sentiment, even ao far ss to conceive of Englsnd's using her arms to ?prevent Prsnce from siding Roulai 8b* was blinded by. bar own mllitarlsa.

DULCINEA GOES SHOPPING Sir: Dulcinea told me last night that she had been down town shopping all day and was just worn out. She wasn't like aome women, who like to run around the shops all day long without buying anything. When she has shopping to do ahe likes to get it done. Some of her friend? get things wholesale, but she never was so lucky. On the other hand, though, if one buys a thing that way and it doesn't auit, one can't return it; besides it puts one under such obligations. She reads F. P.

IV1M4._ THE TAX ON FREIGHT Cannot the Administration Learn by Ita Mistake.? To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: I cannot forbear from protesting against the proposed action of Con? gress in its attempt to avoid a defi? ciency in the revenues of the country, due to the European conflict, by plac? ing a tax on freight, as reported in the newspapers of to-day. It seems that the present atlministra tion ?earns nothing by its mistakes. To the colossal blunders of the past, which have alienated the confidence of the people, it contemplates the addition of another?the proposed tax on freight. The explanation of the Democratic leaders is that the tax will be spread so thinly and evenly over all trans? ported commodities as to hardly make Its presence felt. It is reasoned that all classes of people, from the manu? facturer to the consumer, would pay their pro rata share of the tax. How unsound the argument is may bo gleaned from a review of the experi? ences of the lust few years. It has been repeatedly shown that where an increase takes place, either In the cost of the raw products, the cost of manu? facture or the cost of transportation, due to a governmental tax, this in? crease is always passed on to the ulti? mate consumer, leaving the parties best able to meet the tax unscathed.
