In No Mood for
Nation Weary of War, but
Won't Listen to Anti
Depression Is General
Russian Debacle, Failure of
Allied Offensive, Increased
Expense Are Factors
By F. A. WRAY
[By Cable to Tha Tribun-?]
London, July M. One of the most
depraf sing weeks of the war has ended
on the fact that war weariness does
not necessarily coincide with a desire
This was illustrated yesterday after
when two carefully organized
peace meetings, one at Newcastle and
the other in London, were broken up
by big crowds of soldiers and civilians
women predominating among the lat?
ter while the demonstrators barely
escaped with their lives.
Following Thursday's debate in the
Commons, when the pucifists were able
to muster only nineteen votes, it cm
phasizi ? the argument that the pac
of this country are at least nu?
merically a negligible force.
Re-asona for Depression
Several factors contributed to the
somewhat disheartened feeling of the
country in the last few days, some
| abroad and others purely do?
mestic. Among the former the Rus?
sian debacle naturally takes ?irst place.
For months past the British public has
been feeding itself on stories of the
muscitation of the Russian army and
the enormous quantities of munitions
. ih>w possessed. The revolution
was believed to have removed both
traitors and incompetents; consequent?
ly, preat hopes were built that sooner
or later the might of Russia would re?
assert itself and insure an increase of
the Allies' triumph.
Now all such expectations have fallen
at one blow, with the result that thtre
is a country-wide feelings that, except
for American aid. Uritain must light
the battle single handed. So far as
the war exploits of France are con?
cerned, their extent is insufficiently
-tood in this country, which is
possibly the reason that a feeling is
growing that France is becoming ex?
hausted and wishes to lean on the arm
of the United States.
Awaited Tremendous Blow
Then, again, the German offensive on
both the Californie Plateau and in
Flanders has sadly disheartened many
people, who nourished the belief that
the Germans might now be capable
only of a defensive effort. To this
section the best military opinion that
".he German attacks reveal nervousness
