First printing of an original poem, written dally
for The Washington Herald
Hold fast to Youth,
For 'tis the truth
That in Youth's eyes
The blue of skies.
The sweets of life.
The zest for strife.
And lme that's true,
Are ever new;
And night or day
Along life's way
'Tis newness fills
The heart with thrills.
And spurs our souls
To higher goals.

A Just Cause That WiD Win.
Regrettable as it is that Postmaster Praeger
is not to be convinced of the real necessity for
providing the Pennsylvania avenue business men
with adequate postal facilities, it is not to be
imagined for a moment that his decision is final.
Even if Postmaster Praeger does not reverse him
self within the year, the time is not far distant
when his successor in office will establish the
branch office which everybody outside the Post
office Department realizes is needed for the proper
transaction of the business of an important section
of the Capital.
The case of the merchants needs no argument.
In fact the postmaster practically concedes the
justice of their demands when he admits having
considered the establishment of a branch post
office in the territory involved, and suggests a
site a few blocks west and north 'of the present
Postofnce Department, where the city postoffice
was located until it was removed to a remote
and inaccessible corner of the city. Probably
there would be no opposition to the establishment
of an office affording the postal facilities impera
tively needed by the great business section between
Seventh street and the Treasury Building at some
point within the radius suggested by Postmaster
Praeger. There is no insistent demand that the
branch be re-established in the building once oc
cupied by the city postoffice, even though that
would seem to be the logical location. All that
the business men of the city ask is that they be
afforded adequate postal facilities in the central
portion of Washington and that they shall not be
compelled to transact their daily business at a
point so remote as the Union Station. Their re-,
quest is altogether reasonable and there is nothing
in the least convincing in Mr. Praeger's argu
ment about the greatest good to the greatest num
ber, viewing the postal service of the United
States as a whole. There is no evading the issue,
which is that a very large number of business men
in an important section of Washington have been
deprived of the postal facilities to which they are
justly entitled. It will not do to answer that the
parcel post accommodations in the outlying sec
tions have been increased, because that does not
touch the question involved. The business men
of the section represented in the petition to the
postmaster arc demanding the right to quickly
and conveniently transact that part of their busi
ness which is dependent upon the mails, and this
right they will eventually attain whether it be
uirougn x-osimasicr rraeger or his successor.

Have you ever gone for long hours at a stretch
without eating?
Most of us have, and most of us remember how
ravenous we have been when at last we have found
food within our reach.
Mark Twain tells of going to a sanitarium in
Germany to be treated for severe indigestion.
The shrewd old German doctor in charge had
the humorist taken to a room and instructed to go
to bed.
For hours and hours Mark Twain lay in bed.
He began to wonder what the times for eating
were in that institution.
Then he began to wonder if they had any times
for eating.
He became ferocious.
He demanded food.
But he didn't get it.
The German doctor kept Mark Twain without
food so long that even to that very humorous
mind the situation ceased to be 'a joke.
Finally, the doctor allowed his patient to take
a little nourishment, a very little.
Mark Twain pounced upon it wolfishly.
He had forgotten about his indigestion.

They think that just saying "All's right with the

The Proof Is Yet Lacking.
Yesterday was not without its evidence of a
stampede in the direction of an accord with Ger
many, but with ery little in the way of substantial
developments to justify it. So far there is noth
ing but surmise that Germany will back down from
its asserted and reiterated intention too often
exemplified in deed to sink without warning and
at all hazards any merchantman that comes its
way flying an enemy flag. Americans indulging in
the hope that friendly relations with Germany
arc to be maintained would do well to bear in
mind that everything in the way of concession is
yet to come from Germany, that the United States
cannot recede one step from its demands set forth
in the note of July 21. Germany must disavow
and repudiate the act which sent the Arabic to the
bottom, with the loss of American lives, and Ger
many must make solemn promise that there shall
be no repetition of such act, if action by the United
States toward an unfriendly nation, at war with
nations with which this nation is on friendly terms,
is to be averted.
There is a kind of optimism that is worse than
It is the optimism that sits down, holds its
hands, and smiles.
Meanwhile, the house may h.e burning.
But this particular optimist doesn't see. He is
absorbed in smiling.
Now optimism is a beautiful thing when back
ed by reason and courage.
But without reason and courage it becomes a
preposterous, flabby thing.
It ceases really to be optimism.
It is weakness, maudlin and fatuous.
There is a far better optimism working its way
through the world just now.
I have heard it called by various names.
Judge Lindscy calls it the New Justice.
This name is about as good as any of the names.
In the New Justice we can find what seems to
me the best expression of optimism.
It frankly recognizes the evil conditions that
prevail in the world today and it strives cheerfully,
hopefully and energetically to call the attention
of the world to these conditions and to change
these conditions to better conditions.

This country is not alone in suffering from the
Juu,t' suomanne. uthcr neutral countries
have had heavy losses, but usually without loss
of life. Jow, however, the Spanish ship Pena
Castillo has been torpedoed and the small num
ber of sun ivors thus far reported makes it prob-
aoie that the greater part of the crew is lost. If
uiai proves to ue the case it will hardly strengthen
the German propaganda which is hrintr nm.j

there is a considerable pro-German spirit, specially
ih in c luyausi party, ana, tncretore, exerting an
influence disproportionate to its numbers. But the
German cause is not popular, and blowing up
Spanish ships and sailors is not precisely the way
to add to its popularity. Nor is it easy to awaken
the old grudge against England when to England
falls the handsomer role of saving lives at sea.
Every neutral country to which the submarine
campaign brings loss of life instantlv feels in a
direct way what in the treatment of Belgium it
had felt sympathetically. The two together have

Until a short time ago the New Justice had not
earned the right to be identified with optimism.
It showed a disposition to smite evil-doers, to
hold them up to public contumely, to add to the
enmity that, in life, is so powerful a force for the
creating of evil.
Now it is taking a far more wholesome and
stimulating attitude. It is blaming not men, but
conditions. It is getting down to the weaknesses
of human nature. In its desire to help it includes
all men, even those once classed as evil-doers.
It is bringing to the world a wonderful message,
the message that the good of men is not achieved
by men's preying on one another, seizing advan
tages from one another, but by opening up oppor
tunities for all, by spreading the spirit of unselfish
ness and service.
The New Justice is by no means merely senti
mental. It is practical, too. It shows that its
spirit leads not to loss, but to gain; not to the
keeping back of the world from its resources,
but to the releasing of the world's full riches, in
cluding the riches it has so long lost by burying
marvelous possibilities of character and power in
the depths of ignorance and poverty.
With the present conditions in mind it is pre
posterous for any of us to say, "All's right with
the world."
But it is possible to say something infinitely
finer, "All may yet be right with the world."
And today we can say these words with more
hope than they could ever have been said before.
For the movement has started. The spirit of the
New Justice is abroad, seeking fulfillment through
appealing both to the hearts and to the minds of
It may not be a reality in your time or'mine.
It may not be a reality for many generations to
But it is a thing worth striving for through gen
eration after generation.
And to us the greatest inspiration and joy
should come from merely realizing that the -spirit
is abroad and spreading.
There is even a chance that some day it will
burst into a flame in which all the old iniquities
will be destroyed and the spirit of the world will
be purified.
But let us not be too hopeful
Let us keep our heads.
And let us, above all things,, be careful not to

It may be in their hearts way down deep.
It may be merely waiting for the right moment
to come to express itself.

Perhaps, through the wisdom of the quiet ones,
the New Justice will be achieved, not through the
social revolution of hate and tumult that so many
of the agitators dream of, but through a revolu
tion of the spirit, by which men will come into a

Mr. Godwin, as one of the editors of

prosperity, was brought into associa

Dana, on tho other hand, was restored
