Mr. Wilson on the Defensive,
Anything thnt Mr. Wilson says
with emphasis In n set speech to-day
la naturally Invested with slfjnlncance.
The mcetlnc of the Associated Art
yertlslnc Clubs of tho World In I'hll
adelphla on Thursday gave him an
opportunity to adjust himself to in
ternatlonal and political conditions as
they now exist, and In such a pres
ence he could make the most of it. If
Mr. Wilson', hearers expected him to
ay anvthlnc definite, or anything nt
all abont Mexican relations or the
Teat war, they wero disappointed
and they deserved to be. The con
crete anil the relevant are seldom, if
Tver, to be found In his addresses.
He Is sentimental, philosophical, and
eren psychological. Ho hits no nail
on the head. Ho docs no more than
Bo far as Mexico was concerned
Mr. Wilson's speech wns neither n
peace nor a wnr speech. It appealed
to, If It did not satisfy, both the advo
cates of Intervention and the pacifists.
Thus when the President said "I am
In fighting wood." his hearers pricked
up their ears, but what did he want
to fight for? Nothing very tangible
5 ballava most profoundly in the duty
af ovary American to exalt the national
eonackmantiia by purifying his own mo
tive, and exhibiting hi own devotion.
"America, th country which we put
flrat In our thought, should be ready in
very point of policy and of action to
Vindicate at whatever cost the principle
of liberty, of Justice and of humanity
to which we have been devoted from the
first You have not only got
to be Just to yooir fellow men. but ns
nation you have got to be Just to other
This anil nothing more concerning
the critlcnl relations of the United
States with Mexico or any nation
overseas. If application nt all could
be made. When Mr. Wilson deals In
such abstraction the average man,

flfalrs of the moment, must wonder
jhnt he Is driving at. Hut he Is ready
fight for thee things "at nny cost
01 myself." I Vies Mr. Wilson really
now how to light for nn.vthlng?
In Mr. Wilson's observation that
"no small body of persons, no mat
ter how Influential, shall be trusted
to determine the policy and develop
ment f America." we fancy that men
of the critical faculty In his audience
must have discovered a thrust at the
Republican party. Hut In grsat eli
tes party lines are thrown down and
men think for themselvrs. "The pat
riotism anil energy and Initiative of
the average man." which he professed
to believe In, will pass upon his stew
ardship and determlnf whether h

the pat three years Imve proei
that a i bl tin I Ion between nation Is
not jet a method whereby the arbit

If Mexico possessed ft stable Govern
ment that was not carried In one
man's pocket It would he absurd for
the United States to submit to arbi
tration the question as to how far
bandits should bo allowed to ro In

holder who endeavors In the small

enthusiasm for arbitration as a rea
sonable, civilised and benign method
of saving a quarrelsome world from
bloodshed Is not tmpralseworthy, but
It too often of late has led to use
less, even mischief making, meddling.
The murder of American men, the
rape of American women, the torture
of American children are matters that
cannot be laid before a peace tribunal.
The President of the United States
should not be asked at this crisis to
devote any of his valuable time to the
pleadings of even the worthiest men
and women who fall to realize that

It Is one continuous line except where

and Arse Conscientious
Great Rrltaln met the difficulty of
the "slacker" by a conscription hill
In dealing with the conscientious oh
Jector, however, she squarely con
fronted the question of individual
rights, always strongly rocognrznd In
Knglnnd nnd frequently udvnnced dur
ing the present war. When It was
reported that a group of men who
opposed military service ro sen
fenced to death, a statement; was dft'
mauded from the Government.
This Premier Asqrmt has Just
made In the House of Commons. He
said that men who put forward the
plea of conscientious objftctlon as a
cloak to cover Indifference In respond
ing to the national call "ought to be
treated with tho utmost rigor." but
that conscientious ohjectors who un
dertook "work of national Importance
would ceaso to be the subject of mili
tary discipline." The work referred
to Is evidently the non-combatant ser
vice nt the battle front, certnln defined
duties In the hospital and supply de
partments and the digging nnd repair
of trenches nnd defences.
The real. conscientious objoctors in
Great Rrltaln are found mostly
I among the Friends or Qnnkers and
the Plymouth Hrrthren. On the Con
tinent they would be found nmong the
Hunkers, Mennotiltes, kindred relig

This utterance made In tense mo
menta preceding the civil war may
fully express this nation's attitude.

may eliminate the conscientious ob

objection be genuinely based upon re

Know-In? that at leaM 3. COO KiiKllsh
actoi were still In thl country, and
further noting that the London news
papers are denounclntr them for their
lack of patriotism and also decrying the
engagement of American actors for the
Ixmdon stage, the thought occurs to me
that some retallatlve move should lie
made, not so much for the protection of
tho American actor, because he can pio
let himself, but to force by such action
the return to their own home, which 1s
calling for them, of the thousands of
slackers now enjoying repjiectful and
considerate attention here.
I have watchrd carefully the list of

visit with our company at Mount Gretna,
I feel I must write ou that the men

men who are aasemhled ther ready to
give their lives for their country have
no sympathy with campaign attacks on
tho President nt this time. We are
mobilizing our mllltnry force, nnd may
In a few day be at war. The people
are not thinking about whom to vote
for next November. There is plenty of
time for that.
Mr. Hughes should go ahead with his
campaign schemes, complete the ar
rangement of all the varlou deal and
ln the early fe.ll try hie best to con
vince the people that he could have
done better than Mr. Wilson hns done
and Is better able to nit the Presidential

The Horse' Ferl.
To the KniTOK or Titr. Sun Sir; Those
zealous followers of oUI saw and wise
a)lnga iJiould know whence the saws
emerged before following too blindly
"Never map horces when crossing a
stream" was not Intended to forbid the
swapping of horses, but to point n Joke
on the unwise. It waa the good old
Saxon monk Wlddlbald, I think, who
told the story of the keen horse trader
who owned a horse with a bad foot.
and who lay In wait for a foolish neigh
bor once und when ho saw him riding
across the ford, boldly Tode In to meet
him and proposed a trade. The defective
horsn whs handsome enough, nut the
neighbor was only foolishly wise.
"Is he sound?" asked he of th wise
"He I perfectly sound a you see
him." was the answer.
nut as the hore' feet wera under
water, the foolish trader had a lesson
to learn when he reached home. The
good monk's wl?e saw whs therefore
uttered In Jest.
Now, we know th feet of President
Wilson. He has had them In so much
hot water of his own making that he
han had to lift them up for relief. We
know the defect In the feet.
We know also the feet of Hughes.
The -wise man who know will swap In
the stream horses or Presidents.

with the Inter efforts of the company
