"For many years," said he, "this na?

tablished by George Washington and
entering into no entangling alliances
with other nations. We have attended
strictly to our own affairs, but now
the time has come when the older point

other. The time has come when this
nation must direct the course of civ?
ilization as it should go. We face a
situation in which we are to take the
principal part in shaping the future of
the world.
"This nation has been made the cus

hag its grasp upon Europe. There is
the reaction of imitation and the re

latter. Every true American feels that
he is called out for service from with?

from without.
"Thif conflict is one of the great

London. Sept. 28. Although all the

been reecived with a positive tornado
of abuse Mr. McKenna'o hns been ac
.- ted in utter peace. A long tour
around London disclosed not a single
murmur of complaint, merely a stoical
euriosity to ?iiscover how much the in?
dividual cost is going to be. Every?
body sat down to discover precisely
! .,-?? much his Income tax will be and
(he amount whereby his living ex
; he increased. But never
has there been such an entire absence
of grumbling. Everywhere there is
mi attitude of cheerful and even en?
thusiastic sacrifice. Rich and poor

Superfax Approved.
Sir Fortescue Flannery, director of
the London and Southwestern Bank,
one of the wealthiest London finan?
ciers, said, "I regard the increase in
the supertax as just and wise."
.Sir Thomas Dewar suid. "It is an ex
t budget. I is only right that
the man with superfluous money
hould pay and pay now. None has
tha right to withhold wealth in a time
like this."
Tim Healy, member of Parliament
repreesnting a poor Irish district,
said, "We make no complaint."
Sir Harry Samuel, member of Par?
liament and well known as a banker,
laid. "Th?* budget Is very fair."
Sir Thomas Whittaher, president of
a great insurance corporation, said,
"It is nn eminently fair budget."
W, Crooks, a famous labor leader,
? a different note, "Heavier tea
and sugar duties r.re a most serious
g to the poorest classes, who 'live
from meal to meal.' Some means
ihould have been found to modify
duties in the interest o? men
who earn $5 or less weekly"
Points which arouse the greatest dis?
cussion a.-o the import duty on auto?
mobiles and the abolition of the half?
penny postage. Julian Orde, secretary
of the Automobile Club, said: "Any?
srhich will help the British manu?
facturer will be welcomed. Unless some
? tax is put on foreign cars and
parts foreign manufacturers soon will
have taktr. all our market, lea-Hag the
!: makers after the war with an
impossible task."
American Car Makers In Line.
One of tha heads of the Ford Motor
Company said: "It is a most serious
n-.-.tt.?r for importers of purely Ameri?
can cars, but the Ford doesn't come
:7-.(i.-r that head. We employ 1,600 men
assembling imported parts. The Ford
car will survive the tax." A represen
tativ? of fhe Overland cars said: "Our
cars continue to hold their own even at
the higher price charge. The people
hit will be those financing mushroom
ventures for booming American cars
One of the managers of the Harley
. i". Company said: '"We are
astounded and can hardl?, believe that
so heavj .-? ;ax will be passed by Parlia
If so it will have a serious
? on our business "
Among dealers in cars the feeling
-.oie optimistic. The general view
obtained that if a man really wanted
a tiptop American car he cheerfully
will pay the tax rather than buy an
inferior and cheaper car.
A trade which probably will be killed
bv the abolition of the half-penny post?
age is that of the picture postcard
rs. These trailers generally be
their industry.
Stationer- and news agents through?
out the country are preparing to offer
floreeot opposition. Advertising
sens which specialize in sending
.? reulars with half-penny stamps
II be hit badly.
Tob?ceo and cigars advanced in price
to-day, but tea and provisions still ara
unaffected. In the^e there probably
will be no increase for a fortnight.

Ctedinga has been carefully consid

From the standpoint of law and
equity it is not prevente?!, in ita
opinion, from proceeding against
?American ships carrying contra?
band ftci-ording to its interpreta?
tion until the question is settled
by arbitration.
For the German government does
not need to depart from the appli?

would ensue from the American in?
terpretation of the treaty stipula?

to be out of proportion to those
which the German interpretation
would entail for the United States.
For, whereas the American IntOF

Berlin Reports 110,000 Re?
inforcements Arrive at
Lemnos Island.
Berlin, Sept 23.?( By wireless to
; Sayville, X. Y.)-A new army of 110,
000 men has been sent to the assistance
j of the Allied forces at the Dardanelles,
according to the Overseas News
This information was contained, the
? news agency says, in a dispatch from
Athens. Trie reinforcements for the
French and British forces are said to
have landed at Mudros, on Lemnos
Island, in the ?-Lgean Sea.
The original expeditionary force on
1 the Gallipoli eninsula has been
strengthened by lar'ie consignments of
troops, principally British. If the in
1 formation from Athens is correct, how?
ever, it may mean that the new armv
has been gent by Italy. Several trans?
ports departed from Italian port? with
large consignments of troops last
month. They sailed under sealed or?
ders. A dispatch from Rome at th*
time said it was generally believed
they were to be employed for opera?
tions against Turkey.
