The Deadlock on the Aisne River. Hi?' tattle on the Atan River has lasted seven day? and yielded no decisive results, it has bee? ? gruelling test of endurance In s series of frontal attacks and counter attacks. Neither side claims mure than a draw in these operations. The Ger* mans hive been technically on the defensiv??, al* though they have assaulted the Allies at many points. While they were flailing tack from the \alley ?>f the Maine their engineers selected a Mroug line behind which the retreating columns ??ould rot>rganizo, make good their losses with rein? forcement*- hurried up from Belgium and the Rhine depot? and secure their communications to the northeast and east. The battle of the Aisne has therefore gone iu their favor in so far as it baa euded the retreat from the neighborhood of Paris sud given them a breathing space in which to refit ?ind make new plans. How important this negative success has been will depend upou the next moves iu the campaign. The German army did not rush into France merely for the purpose of seizing a good line, intrenching it and beating off a .-tries of Trench attacks. The plans of the Herlin General Staff involved BSSUin Ing the offensive and resolutely maintaining it until I he French mobile army should be crustad and Paris invested. Any abandonmenl of the offensive, even for a couple ?f weeks, must upset those plans, since the German scheme for a war on two fronts provided for a quirt smashing of the French de? fence and a subsequent shifting of a large part ?>f the western forces to Ihe eastern frontier. If .no deadlock ou the Aisne is to continue. n.> reinforce meats can go from France to Fast Prussia, Poland ami Galicia. <?n the contrary, losses in France wi'l mount so high tliit only a small proportion of Ger? many's tirst line reserves can he spared for use else? where. In order to reap any positive advantages 1-v prolonging their stay in France the German armies will lia\e to resume the offensive and malee .-na- more gigantic effort to disorganize and scatter the forces of the Allies. Th.- French and British have not repeated on the Aisne their impressive successes on the Marne. Bu! they have just as much cause to be satisfied with the results of th.- fighting of the last week as th? Germans have. Their tactical position is better. ? . if they still retain a superiority in numbers, the) can afford to hold the German riirlu. centre and centre by frontal attacks and meanwhile tl?reat?'n the ?.crinan right on the flank and rear. Geueral von Kluok's arniy,has apparently bent back its right wing to the north of Noyon. but the French do not have to go very far on that side in order to envelop the enemy. The excessive rains of the las? iliree or four ?lays have mereas?>d the difficulties of ?euch turning movement But if one is poshed i?- Hie pri'S?'iit German intrenched line will be ?? untenable, n has uo firm support on the tliurst and will lind none until it gets well back 1 the valley of the fiambre. The present German position is. in fact, a good enough one to halt in, but not a good enough one i?> settle down in definitely for defensive purposes. If the Kaiser is going to yield the offensive .1 France the natural line for his armies to make a stand on is hack along the Belgian and Luxemburg frontiers, the right covering Charlerol and Namnr, the centre about Sedan and the left extending below Metz. But to assume siicli a position would be to admit that the tier inn campaign in its lirst pija-e lias failed completely and that Germany will ber?? after occupy herself defending her own territory. Had the Germans just reached Laon and Rbeims for the tirst time, German prestige would still be unimpaired and th?- situation ?if th?' Allies would bo held to be highly critical. There were many mili? tar] experts who thought I hat the German armies could not penetrate within two months' time as far as France's second line of defence?Rhelins ?LSMW-Lfl 1?re. The rapid success ,>f the turning movement by way of Belgium excited German hopes ?if another Sedan. Then those lopes were punot ur?-d by the defeat on the Mame and the retreat to the Aisne. All "f a sudden the Imposing tradition of German invincibility was shattered. The Allie? bave r?-gained an amount of confidence In tli-in Squal in valu?- to the reinforcement ot a i,.?w urwy. The road to Paris, which seemed so open ?y, now bristles with difficulties. Fighting .?it lthelms, after having been within sight of the forti? fications ?>f Paris, the Gorman unny 1ms lost its terrors for others and a large part of its blind faith 111 Itself. The course of the war so far confirms the general opinion that frontal assaults have lost their effec ?s With anything lik?- equal numbers op? posed they lead only t-> hideous slaughter. One turning movement brought the Germans from Bros Nebs to the outskirts of Paris. Another pushed them back sixty miles to Noyon ami uheims. it begins to look as if the deadlock on ?!???

A Reserve for This Country. The war In Burojie may make Uongreea listen to Major General Leonard Wood this time when he recommends thai this coontrj should have an ade? quate army reserve. General Wood's Idea is that a soldier should be in th?' repliai* army just long enough to be thoroughly trained, and that, then I??? should step into the reservo to give opportunity for the training of another soldier. In this way tne country might avoid the necessity of s largo stand ing army and yet have a considerable number of trained men to call upon in ?ase o-" a national,emer? gency. The present long enlistment results in the (rain? ing of few men and In a small reserve. A recruit enlists for seven years, four in active service and three on reserve. Bonuses and oilier Inducements often cause him to re-enlisf at the end of four years. so that the re-ervo Is kept small ami the number of trained soldiers is few. General Wood's rir-t itb-a eras to make the term of enlistment short. His pr?sent plan. embodied ill his latest report as Chief of Stall" -and it i*. a wi-? one wo think-?calls fm* a six year enlistment, gi*. ing the soldier the option of ?going on Um- reserv? list, with the approval of the War Department, .'t the end of eighteen months' service. After eighteeu months a man would not have been so long on? of civil life that be would hesitate to go back Into i?. with the option of going on the reserve freely exer clsed, we should have a citizen soldiery rather than a professional army. The number of trained men at the nation's disposal would be Increased and the country, without going In for European militarism. would be better prepared for a national emergency than it i*- now. The Philosophy of Cold Steel. Anybody ran prove that in hand-to-hand ?gbtiug an automatic gun i- worth ten bayonets. Which wytihl you rather face a burglar with, for ex ample? After a charge across a field, with which could you ?lo the more damage? There is no doubt of the answer. Yet every military power retains the bayonet and uses it In ?dose ugbiing. Why? The answer goes back of lighting theory and lighting machines to the human equation. It la ,. question of psychology rather than killing power, The automatie may be the more deadly weapon, but it has not the wicked, visible glitter of a row of fixed bayonets charging up to a defensive lim The bullet is an invisible enemy. You cannot see it sweeping toward yon: you do md imagine it cutting into you. The gun coughs and It Is all over. The row of bayonets s'.,ris. wavers, conies on, faster and faster, nearer and nearer. Home < f them go down, others keep on. Cold, visible death is sweeping up to you, and small wonder that you break and run. It is the constant assertion of the Allies thill the German soldiers have no taste for steel ami have constantly given way bet?re bayonet charges. The point is one of the most psychological qu?? tions which impart?a] reports may or may not settle. The fact is unquestionable, anyway, tint Cold steel has retained ils value in warfare, d ? spite all the marvellous weapons that gunpowder ha- placed in the hand of man. Business Opportunity for Prepared Americans. The American Manufacturers' Export Association issues a warning to business men and the public against numerous "syndicates'' and schemes for exploiting foreign trade, especially that of Latin America. Doubtless such warning should no; be needed, but surely it js. In spite ?if the efforts of the United states government ami consuls ami consular agents of Latin-American countries, hasty, ill-considered, futile attempts Will be made to ex? tend legitimate American business at the cost of many good American dollars, in a Idltlon to all the get-ricb-qulck schemes based on La tin* America u trade which will swamp gullible persons with money to invest. it is true that war conditions have produced a splendid opportunity for American I ? siness men h> foreign trade. Hut that ?loes not mean every busi? ness man who wants to extend his trade. It means those who are prepared by knowledge of business conditions and customs in the count ties with which tiny seek to have traffic. It means those who hav ? the ability to meet the trade cow liions imposed by these foreign merchants and who lune buslnews Staff, capable of meeting these foreign moi-chan;* on their own ground mid under their own custom not tuns. American commerce has suffered iu Latin America and, lo a somewhat less txtet, lu Luro-i.-. because Americans, with a singular lack of per? tapicaclty, have triad to impose their own ideas .mil customs tui the rest of the world. Those Americans will succeed, iu this opportunity for extending : American business abroad, who show brenlt:i | enough to understand that the purchaser knowi trade better than they do and has a light to ?*-*?? 1 what in? wants as he wnnti The Flathunter'B Stand-Pat?otUm.

To tiie F.ditor of The Tribune. Sir: The reading of various effu* lions of the "German-American Liter? ary Defence Committee" forces one to make Use of the "odious" comparison. As some '-real critic remarked. "The Holy Roman Empire was not holy. Roman or an empire"; so one is led ?" remark that the above committee is not "lii-imitii." "American," "Literary" or "Defensive." On looking further into tins misnomer one flndi the fol? lowing reasons why this statement o.' mine is justified! There is no such thing si German-American one is ?ithcr an American or a German; "lit? erary" in the Oxford Dictionary means, among other things, "polite learning" the letters of thi*. self-styled com? mittee iho'.v no trace ,.*' that i : "defen? sive" is the reverse of "offensive" the latter word being the proper one to use ir. this connection. The offensive tone of the letter-; sent to The Tribune by the German Offence Committee is sickening to the American leader, and the thought arises the threats made are so closely allied tu blackmail as to place the committee in ? lomewhat equivocal position. T. New York, Sept. _o, 1914. THE CLUBBING OF A CITIZEN A Reader Reports a Brutal Arrest by a Policeman. To the Lditor of The Tribune. Sir: Some months ago the ,,ublic was adviacd that policemen were again per? mitted to Um- their clubs. On Saturday last, the t'Jth inst., while passing through lortlandt st., New York, I witnessed a policeman brutally club an intoxicated man. When the officer i who seemed to be of very light build, and not 'liver strong, attempted to arrest this victim of alcohol, he i the prisoner) took hold of the officer's coal. Thin seemed to exasperate the officer beyond reason, ?lid he immediately began to belabor the practically helpless man, and con? tinued to beat him; digging Mm in '.he iibr*. and beating him across 'he legs. He struck him over twenty-live times, mostly after the man was subdued. Thi* wan while marching him to the station, I believe the late Mayof Gay nor was right in his no club order. HENRY THRUSTON GREENE. Damont, N. J.. Sept. 10, 1914. "THOU SHALT NOT KILL" The Sending of a Noon Thought Me? ?age I? Urged. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: President Wilson has asked that the 1th day of October be spent in prayer and supplication for the speedy termination of the European war. The American Peace Society calls for nation-wide petitions to end the war, by daily prayers. I believe that the thought currents so created must influence the issue cer? tainly both lure and abroad. We have proof of the transmission of sound by aerial waves through the wireless; why not utilize the greater power of the transmission of thought and create a definite thought to be transmitted to the men actually engaged in war in all parts of Europe? Let me ask that from now on every day, but particularly on the 4th day of October, every man, woman and child here or anywhere in this country and in all the world, precisely at I'J o'clock muida-,, New York City or United State- Lastern time, will, with his mind directed toward the combatants, i. peat to himself twelve times, "Thou Shalt Not Kill." 1 a*k the aid of this press, and there? by circulation of the widest range, for the distribution of this suggestion. Let it increase in volume day after day as the notice becomes gradually uni? versal, until by the 4th day of October it shall have increased to such univer? sal supplication, not only here but in all the world, that not only the thoughts, but also tile r.ctual transmis? sion, cannot help but reach all the com? batants. And then let us hope that they, from the highest to the lowest in rank, will on that day of one accord create an armistice and permit arbi? trary discussion. And what would be more logical than that this country should be made the arbiter? UNKNOWN. New York. Sept. 15, 1011. HELP FOR FRANCE An Appeal for Contribution? to a Re? lief Fund. To the r'tiends of France Through the American Press. I have been requested by Gabriel Ilanotaux, president of the Committee France-Am?rique and of the Secours National, to explain to those not in touch with the vast importance of tak? ing care of the many in France left to shift for themselves, inasmuch as the breadwinners have been called to the front, as well as of the many Belgian refugees who have come to France be? reft of everything. ' 1 therefore make this appeal and beg that the response may be in proportion to the sincerity with which it is made and the immensity of its usefulness. I make this appeal to those of all classes, begging them to be assured that what is confided to Mr. Ilanotaux through the Secours National will tind employment in the relief of suffering to the utmost of its capacity and with the least administrative expenditure. I appeal to everybody; to all the workmen who have toiled upon the great monuments of our own good country and whose excellence is most largely due to the traditions and prin? ciples of French art. From what I have seen, immense good can he done through the Secouru National No subscription is too small, inasmuch as four cent* will procure a good, solid meal of soup with all the ingredients that go to revive force and courage. Help of all kinds i* dealt out clothing, lodging and specie, all most economically and admirably adminis? tered. This important point I vouch for. Therefore, I beg of all my friends and countrymen whose hearts are with this people ir. their struggle again.-t oppression and who are lighting for the very principles for which the French supported us so finely in 177t',. no matter how modest or how great may be your resources, to carry or to send to Mrs. Whitney Warren, 1 *? East 47th st., whatever you have 'he courage to deprive yourselves of i:i order to al? leviate the suffering of tiiese people and to help bear the burde.i of the bat? tle for their very existence. WHITNEY WARREN. Pari-, Sept. I. 1914. MASCULINE RULE How the Feminine Voice Might Le??en It? Destructive Force. To the Editor of The ?Tribune, Sir: The war which is at present devastating Kurope will convine?' -:ll thinking people that we have to-day reached the pinnacle of what may be termed "masculine ruK" political, financial, social. It and other recent happenings teach us that militarism and the social evil are tl.e natural outcome of an exclusive masculine form of government, and we realize that unchecked it can but result in the extinction of the human race. Masculine rule makes for destruction. It is destruction only which will lay any lasting claim on ma.cu tion. The treatment of the English militants is an example of this. Years of intelligent as ?rell a> help ful work on the part of the English suffragists passed unnoticed was Ul terly ignored. No logical reasoning, no pleading for justice, seemed to pene? trate the masculine brain as represent? ed by Englishm? n. At last, in despair, the suffragists decided that the only way to gain attention was to resort to methods their masters could best un? derstand, and followed with tin mild breaking of windows and the destruc? tion of a few painted canvases and some unoccupied building?. At last the masculine mind was touched at a ^u' nerable point. A tight was on hand. That they could understand, and they entered into it with good spirit, as is testified to by the record? ot theil tal treatment of those women who simply wished to show them in tin. only way calculated to make an im? pression that they wanted political freedom. The time has tome when the temper? ing feminine influence must be felt in the government as well as in the home. When brothers or father and son lose their tempers and a tight threatens, a* frequently occurs in many a house? hold, it is the mother's hanu that stays them it is the mother's voice that brings them to their scascs. And shamefacedly they refrain from giv? ing way to their brutal passions. If the amount of ingenuity that ha? been wasted in inventing infernal machiner.? ' to destroy human life had been utilized to further the education and to develop the character of the people and of th government we would all be enjoying now what those who come after uj must still struggli for.
