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 ?!??? Alms ronid ha'
broken only by another mant?u*-**e of thin sort, ill j

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

THAT DEFENSIVE COMMITTEE
Why It Deserves No Part of its
Lengthy Name.
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.

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.

"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?

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.

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.
