The reply of the United State to
tlie Austro-Hutignrlan iiOte of Decem
ber lf relative to the sinking of the
Aorone Is adequate and reaonslve.
It answers the questions, rained hy tht
Imperial ami Royal Government with
sufficient expl lot mens to establish the
facts and principle on which our de
Aland are grounded. It properly re
frain from discussion of those prin
ciple, the acceptance of which by all
civilized nations hus been made con
spicuous recently In the renewed ad
herence given to them by Austria"
Teutonic ally. With admirable brev
ity and directness, but with no sug
gestion of unnecessary harshness. Mr.
baBaVBd reiterates the terms of our
nmmunlcatlcn of December 6. The
message conveyed In that document
remain unimpaired In substance and
Import, recording precisely the con
tentions and sentiments of the I'nlted
States with respect of the destruction
of the Ancona.
Threatening Egypt.
A large force of Hermans and
Turks, according to despatches re
ceived In London, Is assembling In
Syria for an Invasion of Kgypt. This
design, it was announced In Germany,
was a part of the Teutonic drive
arms the Biilkuns and contingent
upon ii.s success.
The expedition Is being formed by
Field Marshal vox iif.r Goltz. whose
long service under the Ottoman Gov
ernment especially rtts him for the
command, lie uhs established his
headquarters at Aleppo, and bis forces,
which consist partly of the army
corps at Constantinople, are to be
equipped at Aleppo. Alexnndretta anil
along the Syrian littoral and are
drilled by German officer.
These preparations are made with
the usual German foresight and thor
oughness. A railway Is being con
Htructod across the Sluai desert far
enough Inland to lie out of range of
the British warships pntrolllns the
coast. To obviate the difficulty of
water supply and thus do away with
the cattSi of the failure of an earlier
Turkish expedition the Germans arc
laying miles of water pipe across the
desert. In this way It Is believed that
speedy advance can be made and a
blow struck (bat will win the Suez
and open the way to Egypt de.-plte the
new defences built by the British.
While the Allies have professed to
oonsi'ler these preparation as unim
portant, recenl events show that they
are far from ignoring them. The mat
ler wh discussed a few day ago In
the French ("handier and this has
lieen followed by the announcement
of the British War Office that one
hundred thousand Britih troops hail
been Withdrawn from the Darda
nelles for use In "another sphere of
operations," These troops could be em
ployed with great effectiveness against
the Teutonic Egyptian designs by
hreaUne the communications between
Berlin sod Constantinople; for, in the
absence of a fleet, the Balkan railway
I the on!) means b which Germany
could expect to make the expedition
a success.
It Is very evident from the Interest
which the threatened advance has
aroused in England that the British
Goveriitncni Mill not be taken so
much unawares here as it has been
nt some other points in the Allies' line
of defence, It has strengthened the
fortification at the north entrant; of
the canal and has also increased the
size of the Egyptian army.
The expedition, striking at such a
vital point Of the British Empire and
recalling NAPOLEON'S advance across
the satiie desert, his memorable siege
of Acre and hU repulse in Syria,
would be the most fascinating mili
tary adventure that the Kaiser could
undertake.

la the Privacy of Judge Gary's oin
lag Boon.
Among the mvltltudti.ous specula
tlona evoked by Judge Gaby recent
entertainment of his friends, none
seems more reasonable or defensible
than that which represents the com
pany as giving particular attention
to the paragraph of President Wn
son's address In which he said :
"And there are many additional
sources of revw.ua which can JuaUy bs
resorted o without hampering una IBs
dustrlaa of (he country or putting any
too graat charge upon individual ex
penditure. "A tax of oris cent per gallon on
aaeolena and iraphtha wuaild yield, at lbs
praaent ajtinuUed production, 111,000.
000 : a tax of 50 cerrte per hcrsa-power
on automobiles and Internal explosion
engines. 111,094 000 1 a atatikp tax on
bank checks, probably t IS, 000,000; a
tax of 1!S centa par ton on pig Iron. $10,
000,000; a tax of II cents per tea on
fabricated Iron and .;. probably 10.
000,000." Against a tax on gasolene and In
ternal explosion engines the voice of
the great commoner, speaking for the
dow titrodden, has already been heard.
Against taxation of pig Iron and fab
ricated Iron and steel, two prime
neeeesarles of life, why ihould not the
Colonel protest? He la a man of Iron;
the Impingement might be personal,
ruinous. He too patronizes the In
ternal explosion engine; other of
.ludge Gary's guests on this eventful
evening utilize that Ingenious mecha
nism In their goings and comings.
It Is worthy of note that as time
progresses the names of hitherto un
disclosed guests at this function are
revealed, So far it has not been sug
gested that the editor of the Com
mon' r was present in person. Yet If
these proposals of President Wit son.
which have alrendy enlisted his at
tention, engaged also the thought of
the Colonel and hi fellows around
the Gary mahogany, who shall say
that the Nebraska statesman was nut
with them in spirit?

president of the Austrian Anthropo
logical Society, and his students have
examined 3. "00 prisoners, taking
thousands of measurements, whlcli
have determined that there does not
exist a pure race. All the prisoners
are of racial mixture; the various
raciul elements have been moulded
inio one people by langunge and cir
cumstances. Even among the Poles
there were five different groups. Which
he has isolated In certain feature.
Among the prisoners he found
those who came from the region be
tween the northwest of Kussln and the
Ural Mountains called Finns, and
among those coining from the CraJ
Mountains anil the Volga lie found a
mixture of Slav with the I'lnn. the
German and the Tartar, two types of
blond and one I brunette type. He
compared the so-called Little RUSSlSlI
and the White Russian, who spen'i
the purest Russian dialect, with their
relations front Qullclg, Rukovtna
and Hungary, and with the Lithua

has Ifrrartably had IBS courage "to dig
III the spurs and to take the leap'' Her
people, more homogSBSOUS than those
of an. other State In the Tnlon, have
never failed "to make the deed squere
with the word" or "to prove their fslth
by their endeavor."
Only three 'lutes in their history
have the North Carolinians been pro
fOBndly stirred. Klrat at the time of the
Hevoluilonsrv war, when, beginning wrlth
the battle of Moore's Creek, which was
rsally the opening battle of the
American Mecolutlor, Nortli Carolina set
on example of armed resistance which
was later gloriously emulated by Ihe
minute men at lx1ngton and Concord.
Later North Carolinians gave lo ths
world the Mecklei berg Declaration, the
language of which was, by a singular
coincidence, almost literally copied by
the knlckerlsic.kered gentlemen who mat
In Independence llvll of Philadelphia.
"Klng'a Mountain" and 'Qullford :ourt
House" showed the old North State'-,
mettle, and proved te be the turning
point of the struggle.
ftnfortunately, the tfnrlal records of
North Carolina's Bhare In the Revolu
tionary war were -burned when the Capi
tol at Raleigh was deevroyed hy fire,
but the record mads by her sons In that
war cannot readily be effaced
The second time North Caroline wee
stirred to the depths was at the opening
of the civil war. A vast majority of her
people were devotedly attached to the
Integrity of the Union. Her electoral
xote in 11(0 was cast for Bell snd
Bverltt, the t'nlon candidates, in De
cember of thst year her people voted
against secession In the ratio of two to
one. A few months later, when Lin
coln Issued his cell for troops to subdue
the ae-edlng States, North Carolina
voted In favor of secession In the ratio
of three to one. Then she sent Into
the Confederate army, not to mention
her contribution to ths Federal forces,
more soldiers than she had male ritl
sens of 21 years of aae. a greater num
ber In proportion to population than
sent io the colors bv any other State of
the North or South during the civil war.
Official records show that her loss In
killed and wounded, though not In
"missing." exceeded in proportion to her
population that of any other State In
the Cnlon Has It not been said that
"South Carolina and Mississippi brought
on the war. Virginia furnished tne
buttle ground, and North Carolina the
troops" '.'
The third time North CsrollnJana "got
hot under ths collar" was In 1 litis, when
the white people of the State arose and
overthrew the comlbinat'.on of Republi
cans. Populists and negroee." The
movement was known aa "the red shirt
campaign." It succeeded, and but for
Its suiioess (he Hon Claude Kltchln
might not now be a representative In
Congress
The South has paid a heavy penalty
for Its Britannia waywardness Her po
sition In the national councils has not
oeeu strengthened by the experiment of
choosing the Bryannlc "wlll-o'-the-wisp."
Will the people of North Caroline now
follow t ie Hon Claude Kltchln ef Scot
land Ne. k. or will they preserve the
better traditions of their history, honor
ing their fathers not with Hp sendee
but with reverence, and. In the noble
words of Tacitus, "so far aa In them lies,
