(Copyrisbt. 1MJ ) Spectacular Police Methods. A -strange change has come over Washington in recent months that seems to call for the expert services of nothing short of another Congressional board or commission to isolate and analyze it, as the scientists put it. Either the once mild and docile people of the Capital have become fero cious and dangerous or its police have fallen vic tims to a pitiable timidity that has hitherto found bluecoats and brass buttons invulnerable; or else and this is the only other explanation a police drama, with the scene laid in the Nation's Capi tal is soon to appear in the motion picture films to thrill the provinces. There is no other way in which to account for the revolution in local police methods, that has abandoned the old way I of discovering a law breaker, procuring a war rant, arresting him and summoning witnesses when necessary for the prosecution, and adopted the d'me novel or Wild West formula that begins with profound mystery, followed by the trailing of the suspect and his accomplices to their lair. i the surrounding of the low, dark, forbidding stronghold in force, and the grand finale, the raid with guns and clubs drawn. A spectacle such as this, surpassing, entrancing, was presented in this city on Saturday night, when the police swooped down on an establishment where music and beer flowed in unholy and pos sibly unlawful harmony. Upwards of seventy per sons, guilty of finding enjoyment amid such sur roundings, were bundled into half a dozen patrol wagons, while spectators blocked the streets and cheered or jeered as the mood took them. Of the seventy odd only one, the proprietor of the place, was held. The others, after being subjected to the humiliation of a ride through the streets under police guard, to the accompaniment of clanging bells, were not even required to furnish collateral. The officers of the law, admitting that they had committed no offense, merely took their names in case they shouldtbc required as witnesses. The proprietor was held for trial on a charge of main taining a disorderly establishment, the music pos sibly contributing the disorder. If he was en gaged in violating the law he should have been A man who made delightful music tor Wash-: arrested in an orderly way and the necessary ington as composer and leader of the Marine Band 'witnesses summoned by due process.

He knows that the British people know Shaw. intentionally. And in that note the frequent inti mation was contained that it was Germany's in tention to continue relentlessly the method of warfare of which the, Orduna and her passengers were so nearly the victims. The incident has scarcely intensified the diplo matic crisis between the two nations, because there was nothing in Germany's note to lead President Wilson and his advisers to believe that her submarines would refrain from attacking with out warning the first merchantman that offered a target, with the purpose and intent of killing every one on board regardless of nationality. Lives of Americans on the high seas are in hourly peril. Germany has informed us that their safety may be secured only by sailing under conditions laid down by Germany. President Wilson will return to Washington today to prepare the answer of the United States to this unique mandate .from a foreign power. The Orduna attack was not neces sary to convince him that Germany meant what she said. i he went cverv where. Many in Washington knew him as a genial, cherry comrade ana the news of his death brings them sorrow. The man who murderously attacked Leo Frank in the Georgia State prison had already killed two men, and it would appear that placing linn in cloc confinement was a precaution that should have been taken before instead of after the attack on Frank. Prison tragedies have been altogether too frequent lately, and it is not im probable that the prison uplift movement is in a measure responsible.

Xo man attached to the Dis- i jTovernnient todav is o well informed in its subjecting scores of persons, admittedly blame less, to indignity. If the establishment is con ducted in violation of law it is the duty of the police to bring its proprietor to justice and com pel him to close his doors if he persists; and their duty is the same with regard to every similar es tablishment in Washington. But it is not neces sary to create disorder in enforcing the law against disorder. There is a strong suggestion of Russian rutocracy about Saturday night's proceedings, to which tiic people of the Capital of the United States arc not as yet prepared to submit. It will occur to many persons that all of the policemen who participated in Saturday night's thriller save one, might better have been employed in hunting down the murderous automobile ban dtts who within a period of eight days robbed one lunch room and shot an attendant in another when he resisted. The desperadoes left everything in the way of clews behind them except their names and addresses, but they are still at large. that the dM i 1 as pbv icallv mi -toner-s where hia up. n Dr. Tindall, and, still mentally and active, it is fortunate that the Coin are -ble to retain him in a position advirc and assistance may be called Phi cvptam of the Norwegian-American liner whiih took Di I -rrliurg across and was held up hnrtlv !v a Br. 1i ship, thus describes the inci den' s soon as the boarding officer, a lieu tenant rame across Dr. Dcrnburg and Mrs. Dcrn burg on the deck, he brought his men to attention and oriiced them to salute.

"I hope that.this evil will be corrected, either by the medical profes sion or by the legislature." he said. "The State, for instance, could meet the situation by appoint ing an expert to examine all defendants." In other cases besides that of Thaw the testimony of the paid alienist has been an insult to justice and intelligence. With three paid experts on one side testifying to one thing and three paid experts on the other side swearing to something exactly opposite, the testimony of all becomes worthless. It is to be hoped that Judge Hendrick's words from the bench .trill, cad, the travesty in ,New- yorlcat least, t . - Moving Pictures of Sulzer. The announcement extraordinary comes the lion. William Sulzer is to appear in "movies" for the purpose of showing how cruelly he was impeached in New York State, and for the extra purpose of completing his vindication. Just how Mr. Sulzer is going to perform this feat is not apparent, as the Edison talking picture machine has nit yet reached perfection, and any play that prohibits Sulzer from talking while he is pretending to act would be a blank failure. There must be something in it, however, as the managers of moving picture shows arc not likely to throw away valuable time, even when Mr. William Sulzer is the -star performer. It will be recalled, that when the famous trial of infamy was on in Alban, the lawyers in the case succeeded in keeping Mr. Sulzer quiet for a few hours, and these were the most trying hours for the de fendant. Here is the dramatic climax of the whole affair, in which Prometheus may be shown gagged and bound, as the court of infamy places on record the alleged nefarious dealings of the said William with those disinterested characters, who love to hover around Wall Street, and who may have had some feelings of sorrow for his overburdened soul. We have no doubt, that the masters at Albany might allow William the use of the legislative halls for the proper scenic effect, as then the affair, unique in the history of the Empire State, would be a true picture for future generations. It is not easy to understand how it is going to be possible, even with the ingenuity developed in a first-class moving picture machine, tb show $20,000 worth of campaign subscriptions so that they will appear as only $5,000 worth, unless it be that some new scheme of Wall Street arith metic is to be put in force. It taxes the imagina tion up to the limit to venture even a guess as to the part Pauline Hall is to have in this his toric sc'.fcrrio. She is only an actress; William and his tribe are the real things, and what's the use of getting substitutes when the real stuff is at hand. However, sweet Pauline may be there to read in tragic agony the letter which opened up the heart of the statesman, and the poet with the sad but endearing lines: O! Polly dear, I feel so queer, I really think my cud is near. Habit By JOHX D. BARRY. "p HERE seems to be a pretty general agreement among psychologists that the chapter on "Habit" in the "Psychology" of William James is one of the finest studies of the subject ever made. It ought to be read by every one. And yet, simply as James writes in comparison with most philosophers, that chapter is by no means easy reading. Those who work over it, how ever, are repaid. For it gives them one of the highest pleasures that literature can afford, the pleasure of verification. We all know how delight ful it is to be able to say to ourselves as we read: "Yes, I have often made that observation," or "I have felt exactly the same way," or "How true that is!" We are all authorities on the subject of habit. Every day of our lives we study it in ourselves and in those about us. Moreover, we repeatedly express our interest in habit. We may not care fully put our observations together, as James did. And yet we may make as many observations as he did in that essay, perhaps more. There are, indeed, few subjects that we are so interested in as habit, whether we are con scious of this interest or unconscious. We surely must agree that we are all inter ested in ourselves. Therefore, we must be inter ested in our habits. For every one of us consists of a bundle of habits. It isn't merely that we carry our habits about with us. Our habits carry us about with them. Our habits live way down in that mysterious place where we have our most vital being. They are like the telephone central. They treat us as if we were machines. At a whisper' from them we eagerly obey. rsOliP COUNTRY- -0HRMS1DENT fMMWQN A THEORY FOR STATESMEN. Published by a special arrangement with the President throuzh The McClure Newspaper Syndicate.

Doings of Society When I was a boy I used to be tormented, as I suppose most children are, by hearing talk about bad habits. In this way I was initiated into the habit of thinking that all habits were bad habits. Wherever I turned I seemed to be confronted with warnings and prohibitions against bad habits. I was pretty well advanced in years before I dis covered that I had developed an absurd prejudice against habits, that habits could be the most de lightful of all things, the most friendly, the most helpful. I wish that we might stop talking so much about bad habits. In talking about good habits we should find a subject much more cheerful and inspiring, and altogether more interesting. Germany Confirms Her Note. . The slightest miscalculation by a German sub marine crew and the alertness, nerve and sea manship of the captain and men of the Cunard Line steamer Orduna averted another massacre of noncombatants, including Americans, on the high seas. TomoVrow an attack by torpedo and guns under similar circumstances may shock civiliza tion with a new horror and bring the United States and Germany to the brink of war. It is well to realize now what the near future may hold for us. - There will be no surprise at the attempt with out warning to sink the Orduna and. murder every one on board except to those who unreason ingly concluded that while negotiations between Berlin and Washington were pending Germany had temporarily suspended the savage mode of '-warfare against which President Wilson so earnestly protested. Such conclusion was without the least justification.

He said that the least disturbance in life would cause Mark Twain to fall into dejection. I couldn't reconcile this story with what I knew about Mark Twain as a humorist. But when I had thought about the matter for a time, I fancied that I could see an explanation. Mark Twain was suffering simply from habit. In spite of his habitual joyousness in his writing and in his talk with friends, he had formed the habit of letting things upset hfm. So two habits worked together in him, absolutely contrary in their nature. Like so many people, Mark Twain was a bundle of contradictions. Our habits, exactly like our characters, seem to run in lines. In one of these articles I have compared human character to a mesh of string. The various strings are habits.. In the entanglement of our habits we arc continually doing and saying things that are absurdly contradictory. It is only the rare human being, the wonder ful exception, that seems to be able to keep the strings of his character, that is, his habits, from becoming twisted and snarled. GEORGE III had too small a mind to rulo an empire, and the fifteen years of hts personal supremacy In affairs (1763-1TS3) were years which bred a revolution In England no lcaa In evitably than In America. His stubborn Instinct of mastery made him dub the colonists "rebels" upon their first show of resistance; he deemed the repeal of the Stamp act a fatal step of weak compliance, which had only "In creased the pretensions of the Amert cans to absolute Independence." Chat ham ho called a "trumpet of sedition" becauso lie praised the colonists for their spirited assertion of their rights. The nature of the man was not sinister. Neither he nor hts ministers had any purpose of making "slaves" of the col onlatJ. Their measures or the res'ilntlon of the colonial trado were lncontcstably conceived upon a model Ions bbo mado familiar In practice, and followed prece dents lone ago accepted in the colonies. Thelrflnancial measures wcro moderate and sensible enough In themselves, and were conceived In the ordinary temper of law-maklnff. What they did not understand or allow for was American opinion. What the Americana, on their part, did not understand or nllow for was the spirit In which Parliament had in fact acted. They did not dream with how little comment or reckoning upon conse quences, or how absolutely without any conscious theory as to power or author ity, such statutes as those which had ancered them had been passed; how members of the commons started at Mr. Burke's passionate protests and high pitched arguments of constitutional priv ilege; how unaffectedly astonished they were at the rebellions outbreak which followed In the colonies. And. because they were surprised and had intended no tyranny, but simply the proper government of trade and the adequate support of administration throughout the dominions of the crown as the ministers had represented these things to them, members of course thought the disturbances at Boston tempest In a teapot, the reiterated pro- ttets of the colonial assemblies a pretty pltce of much ado about nothing. The radical trouble was that the Par liament really represented nobody but the Klnit and his "friends," and was both Ignorant and unreflective upon the larger matters It dealt with. It was the more certain that the prom ises of accommodation and peaceful con stitutional reform which the supporters of the government In America so freely and earnestly made would be falsified, and that exasperation would follow ex asperation. The loyal partisans of the crown In the colonies understood as llttlo as did the radical patriotic party the real attitude and disposition of the King and his min isters. The men with whom they were dealing over sea had not conceived and could not conceive the American point of view with regard to the matters In dis pute. They did not know whereof Mr. Burke spoko when he told them that the colo nial assemblies had been suffered to prow into a virtual Independence of Par liament, and had become la fact, what ovr lawyers might si.-, co-ordinate with it In every matter which concerned the Internal administration of the col onics: and that it was now too late to ask or expect the colonists to accept any other view of the law than that which accorded with long-established fact. Mr. Burke admitted that his theory was not a theory for tho strict lawyer; it was a theory for statesmen, for whom fact must often take precedence of law. But tho men he addressed were strict legists and not statesmen. There could bo no understanding be tween the two sides of the water; and the loyalists who counselled submission. If only for a time, to the authority of the ministers, were certain to be rejected among their own people. The spirit of American affairs was with the patriots, and would be with them more and more as tho quarrel thlskened. TomorroTTi The Clash ot Arms. m&te? &- 7 HISTORY BUILDERS. There arc many people who go through life ap parently indifferent to the power of good habits. So they are continually at the mercy of circum stances. Each day they renew their experiences without profit. Sometimes it seems as if they began each day w'ith almost no knowledge of the lessons brought them by the days gone be fore. So the new day is like a battle to them, waged without skill, ending in defeat. At the end they sink exhausted into sleep, older and no wiser. If you will look into their lives you will find, in nearly every instance, it is the little things that have caused the exhaustion and the defeat. On the other hand, there are those who are never bothered by the little things. These they have placed in the realm of habit, where the little things of life are so quietly attended to, so easily, so effectually. Summing Up the Case. The Germans began this argument by care fully planning an act which resulted in the death of over loo inoffensive American citizens. The exploit has been treated as a justifiable act of war, which Americans have no right to resent, and the rcpetitionof .which can be avoided only through the surrender by the United States of certain rights enjoyed by American citizenstunder international law. The American government cannot and will not' abandon -these rights, not merely because'they are part of an accepted sys tem ot international law, but partly because of the barbarous way in which they have been chal lenged. Back of the American attitude is, a, deep sense of grievance, which the Germans entirely ignore. Back, of the German attitude is a con viction of the righteousness of all the acts help ful to the military success of the Fatherland, to which Americans will not 'submit. The New Re- The Speech that Hayes Remembered. (Wntttn txrrrvuy for The VYiilucstnn HenW ) iir mi. i:. j. nnwAims. No mora picturesque personality, at least within the memory of tho present generation or those who are survivors of tho earlier, ever came to Washington as a Cabinet officer than wa3 Richard Wlddlngton Thompson, whom President Hayes selected in 177 for the portfolio of Secretary of the Navy. The selection Itself was due to somo rather unpleasant experiences, although In these Mr Thompson himself did not share. Hayes was urged to make appointment of Will iam P. IV e. of Malnp, as Secretary of the Navy, but he could not sen his way clear to mal.e selection ot that kind. Tho suspicion nt that time prevailed and has never ended that tho refusal of Pres ident Hayes to accept tho recommenda tion of James G. Blaine respecting the appointment of Secretary of the Navy wns one of the causca. If not the only one, for tho considerable estrangement which charncterlwd the relations of Mr. Blaine to President Haves. There was no Cabinet seceltlon which (rave President Hayea greater concern than that ot Secretary of the Navy. Im mediately after h was declared by Con- creps to have been elected President bv one electoral vol he fixed uron William I M. Everts for Secretary of State. John Sherman for Secretary of the Treasury, anil r"arl Schurz for. Secretary of the In terior and, having made choire of these men. It viai necessary for him to build up his Cabinet around them. At last he sent a communication to Indiana which greatly astonished Klchard W Thomp son, for It contained a rpq'iest that Mr. Thompson Join the Cabinet ns Secretary of the Navy. At that time Mr. Thomp son was 6S years of age. Nearly forty years before he became a member of Congress and later wan a fellow-member with Abraham Lincoln of the House of representatives. When the announcement was made that Richard W. Thompson was to be Secretary of the Navy almost tveryone wo did not live in Indiana asked wlio he was. His Indiana friends spoke of him as having b-en a very nblo cam paigner years before, nnd It was spmu tlmes said o' him that ho was the great est daily consumer of cigars of any citi zen of Indiana. After he became Sec retary of the Navy his quaint, entirely democratic manner, his fine supply rf good, common sense, and a physical, as well as mental, activity not commonly expected from a man of his years, as well as the fact that ho had been of a sudden brought of tho past into tcnewed public life, made him perhaps tbe most conspicuous member of President Hayes' administration. Delesseps tempted him with an offer of JS.P00 a year o resign from Hayc's Cabinet so that lis might become associated with the French com nanv which was building the Panumi Canal. President Hayes was often asked how he came to hit upon "Dick" Chompscn. almost 70 cars of age, for Secretary of tho Navy. And his reply usually was that ho thought Thompson wis admi rably qualified for that post. Hut there arc rca ons for surmising that something like sentiment led to Thompson's ap pointment. I was told some years ago tint President Hayes, after he retired from the Presidency, said, " w hen I was a oung man just beginning active life, I att ded a political meeting. The adver tisement said that It would be addressed by Congressman Richard XV. Thompson. I never have forgotten tho Impression Thompson's speech made on mo. I thought he had tho finest speaking voice I had ever heard and I could have listened to him all night, for there ap peared to be real music In his tone. If anyone had suggested to me that the time would come when I, as l'rusldent. would call this speaker, who then eo de lighted me. to my Cabinet. I should have said that the Idea was preposterous, but strange things happen In our American political life." (Copjiiiht, 1915. bj E. J. Edwards. All rl(ht n-cried.) OPHELIA'S SLATE. Morning Smiles.
