Germany Continues to Violate the Humanities as Well as the Rules of War. The, destraeuoa of tbc cathedral of Rhelms run1* Germany again on the defensive as in ?'xponont r>" tin- spirit of Ravager; in war. Tin- ruin ?>!' that beautiful monument ?>f mediaeval art le a piece of vandalism which reduces Germ?n militar; methods i?) the level of ?those ot the c.oths and the Huns?. The cathedral stood for seven centuries unmolested by the many armies wliieh have made Northeastern Prance their bailie ground To destroy it wan tonly would have seenie?! a Baerileg? t.. the brat il soldiery a.f the dark ages, when erar was at It? worst The crime of tattering it to pieces was left lo a nation whteh boasts that it has a 1nissi.n1 to impose its "culture" on tin- rest ?if the world, and which describee the present war n-- a war on its part for the protection of Western European civili tatiou against "the semi-barbarous Muscovite.*' In view of the storm of criticism aroused by the destruction of Laouvain, the Oerman military au tliorities uilpht have been expected t-< deal gently with Rhelms. Wireless dispatches received yes? ?teaday from l?erlin ??;?>' that "orders were Issued to save the cathedral,'' and such orders would have ?tx-en in harmony wii'> the expressions v( regret ?sver the Louvain outrages contained In the Kaiser's letter of -September 4 to President Wilson. It Is goajd to know that some real Germans over In Ger> many appnviatc tin- enorinltj of flu? Bhoch to civil ?/??d sentiment Involved In lay in waste buildings of priceless value, which are. besides, specifically lisi?nl for protection by the rules of war. Borne of our own "neutral" German-Americana seem to re? gard the Kaiser's annoyance at the vandalism garactised by bis soldleis as over-squeamish and ?suworthy ?>f a irai "War Lord." From the columns of the ".New Yorker Herold" of yesterday we clip Uiis curt, unsympathetic comment on the destruo tion at Rhelms: "The far-famed cathedral in Rbelms has evidently suffered much through the ?German bombardment, but as the fortress and vity are essential to the ?success of the German arms tat least according t?> the view <.f the German ?Vouerai staff i this regrettable event cannot bo considered in an*. ?nii<?r light hut as one of t.ie unavoidable consequences of the present action." When it ca.nu-s to thick -ami-thin militarism even General von Bernhard! lias nothing on some of our ex-German fellow citizens. The cannoneers at Rheims apparently followed ?he theory of the "New Yorker Herold'1 and disre? garded orders from Berlin. They must have made a target of tha- cathedral, and In so doing they oroke the rU?*s of war contained in tin- Hague vonveinion of October ?8, ii?11". just a< flagrantly ?s those titles were broken on various occasions ju the earlier German operation in Belgium. :t ts Inia- tint Rlicims is a fortified town, but it ha*. nut been a f.ixiiiiol town iu the complete sense in the recent ?huit?n,:, tu?.' French did not try to defend it a couple of w?-?-ks ai"?, when the German forward movement was in progress. They are n >t -,n>\\ uslug its i'..its, foi the ?simple r is.m that the present German line runs inside the northern fortl?? Ik-ntions. Rhelms it-elf has been an open city. But even if it led remained S fa.rtified town in Hie proper Ken*e. the Gerniaus were t?ouud under Article XXVI] of the rules of war to spare ihe cathedral. That article reads : I" sieges and bombardment? all neeessarjr steps must be taken to spare, us far as ?possible, buildings dedicated to religi?n, art, aciencc or charitable- pur? poses, historic monuments, hospitals and places There the sick an.l wounded art? collected, provida?,I that they an? not being used at the time for military purposes, It is the duty of the besieged to indicate the presence of such buildings or places by distinc? tive and visibla- m-ois, which shall be not.iied to the enemy beforehand. The 1-Mmims Cathedral was being used as a Uoe galtai and a place ?>f detention for wounded <;,?r mau prisoners, u flew a Red Cross flag, which ?MUSI ha\e Ikh-ii discernible by the artillery utli. eis ?riving the range lo the German batteries, it vis also a famous "historic monument," and "dedicated to religion." if any building in a bombarded city was ever entitled to immunity this cathedral was. It stood out as a vast landmark and could not bave suffered materially unless the tire ?if the German guns bad be?'ii directed at it Intentionally, its destrm-tion cannot be regarded ? I mischance, due to Ignorance of its position and use?. It was, on the contrary, a direct violation of rules ..f war laid down in a general International treaty. The French protests cannot be nJamisnod as mer? lameutations ?v.-; the luerltable ruin of war. They rest on a legitimate grievance against (?ermany. We can imagine the honilivd protests which Ger? mans would make if an allied army should wan tonly batt?-r to pieces tin- Cathedral ?.f Cotogne. The Chief trouble with Cern?an militarism has been that tt han never entarraliied the Idea that (.'?-r many might have to suffer fiajui tha- same terror klug methods that It has been prepared t?> ippij on foreign soil.

Mr. Whitman and His Friend QuifEji. Mr. Hedges makes the flat statement that l.euiu.'l ' R.

Nothing ?'.lit restore the time euriched loveliness of the loveliest of media?val fanes, in that lies perhaps the bittereat reproach which tbc g?n?ra? tions shall tiring upon the beads of the Kaiser uid his troops. The official I'roneh statement on the bombardment ?>f the cathedral, which attributes it m mere insensate fury, asserting that tin* destruc? tion nf this priceless mouumenl was "without mili? tary reason," i? not difficult of credence. Are no! the sniokim* ruins of Lmivain there to confirm the belief that Germany has in this war definitively re? pudiated her old fidelities to the things of the miud and the spirit'.' Indeed, there is some warrant in lier awful barbarities for tin* suspicion that those fidelities really died lout: ago. There hove been evidences "f d<pcadeiicc iu that German "culture" of which, lately, we have heard so much. Int?? her literature, Into her art picto? rial, plastic, musical, dramatic -there has been creeping something much worse than the bad taste from which she has uever, Iu modem limes, been free, something evilly gross. Doubtless we shall 'near again of the Kaiser's "bleeding heart." but no baualities of that sort can blind us to wbai now looks like a congenital Insensitivcness In the Ger? man nature t" th?* obligations of civilized man. it was once remarked by an acute observer thai ti ? German, while possessing the keenest scent for empiritmus. was unaware of the clumsy thickness of the cup from which he drank. After the bom* liardme.it of Rheims this judgment seems con? i luslre. In I'.ins they have buried the treasures of the Louvre far underground it is not too drastic a precaution. The Victory ?>f Samothrace, it la said, lias been literally fortified with p-rcat sheathing* Of steel. (IOW els?' eollld it b* protected it-.lill-'f the vandals who burned Louvalu and have ruined the Church of Jeanne d'Are'.* The Germana who trj to split hairs with posterity over the question of "responsibility" for such crimes will ouly waste their words.

Two of Tammany's Finest. Two of Tammany's candidates for delegate to the constitutional convention are .lohn _\ Abeam and Louis I'. Haffen.

The Machine and the Pork Bill. Senator Rlmmona's t bren I hi hold the Semite in continuous session until a rivers and harbors bill was passed as he and the lumiej grabbers wantel was scandalous, it promised a use of the power of the machine to enable certain Democrats to extract money from a depleted treasury for "improve* menta" for their districts wholly unwarranted ;it llii- time. it is greatly to he regretted that President Wil? son did not take earlier a definite stand on this out i ageous measure. At a time when he was urging the levytug of war taxes amounting to $1UU,0UU,0(R), which must hear with severity on many persons already the victims of his "psyelioloi-ical" business depression, it seemed only reasonable to expect him t?. he on the side of rigid economy. Vet it was left for tie- Republicana conducting th?- fliiiuist ? against the Pill to take that stand. The Democrats went on with their scheme of waste ami extrava? gance, ami the President was inclined to vt the Senator*, take whatever they eould get away with. Every business concern, every family, these days is forced to the ?-losest Hcrutiny of expenditures.
