ENGLAND'S FEAR OFWAR Constant Apprehension of a Jerad Is Entertain by the Crown. MOSLEMS MAKE TROUBLE EASILY Followers of Islam Are Liable to Engage in Holy War Without Giv? ing the Slightest Warning?Know No Fear in Battle. The people of our own land have little knowledge of [he awful sig? nificance of the word ?jerad" to those of the far Eist. Wherever there is a large Moslem population, there Is always nervoas apprehen? sion lest a Jerad. or holy war lie declared. Within a few months the feeling of unreal in India and Egypt have brought the gravest fears to tlit- diplomats of Europe. So grave is the crisis, It has recently become the subject of a communication to tin British House of Commons. The government has been warned that the situation was most, acut?? and must ?foe handled with extreme caution. II is known thai this anxiety has In? creased within a very few days, nail that it has been the subject of much correspondence between the capitals of Europe. The attitude of the Sultan of Turkey in this matter is not clearly understood. Some of his acts indi? cate that lie might be foolish enough to go so far as to enter a threat, but King EVI ward gave him to under? stand, in a recent ? boundary dis? pute, that England's position was positive and could not be challen? ged. Since this declaration, which created a sensation among the few whr are familiar with the inside information, the Sultan1 hai once more lapsed into his characteristic sullen silence. Hut the British g->v eri ment is not decenved. it is alert and prepared to Iheei almost any emergency?but it is moving in the dark. Come Like a Thunderbolt. .Ternds are seldom made the sub ject of out war ! discussion. They invariably come like a thunderbolt out of a clear sky. The general Impression is that the. Sultan of Turkey is the head of the Moham? medan Church, and that the disciples or Moslem are ever under hit control That is not the truth however. The .Sultan is int the caliph of the Church of Mohammed. As a matter .or fact the Moslems have had rio talu^jf. sir.ee d240, when the Turks captured Bagdad and killed t!n> ca? liph. Ills .successor lias never boon recognized, although the assumption of the Stiltait is that be is caliph li might be added thai within ihe boundaries of bis own knlgdom lie is s > regarded. All of tlio followers of Islam are guided bv Ihe head of the Beel of Hainan at Mecca. This official has already made one decision which mnj be of very great importance. Replying io a query as to whether India and ICgypi were Dar-ul-Tsiam, "The Land of faith," or Dar-nl-Harad "The Land of Enmity." lie decided il. ai these countries were ?|)ar-ul Isiani," on tin- ground thai the fol? low orers of ihe prophet are not per? secuted and are tree t:> follow their religion. The danger of a holy war, however arises arises from Moham? med's Ijunctlon. "Fight the Infidel wherever ye shall find them," and it is a question whether this would not override and overrule any mod? ern proclamation, no mailer how high i lie authority. The Last Holy War. The hist holy war was thai of the Muhdi of Egypt, so sternly ami suht inarlly suppressed by England a lew years ago. England found her-1 seif confronted In almost an Instattl with a formidable holy war. with ail itss attendant atrocities. The fanatics fought the trained soldier.; of Great Britain with superb brav? ery and incredible ferocity, for it. is part of their religion that those 'win, full in battle must be buried hi their bloody clothes, while their son Is aie insured direct (light to i.e:i\eti. Those who participate in a jerad are fighting "In Ihe road of God." The Koran says: "And kill them wherever ye dud them, and turn them Olli from where they have liirned you out, for mischief is worse than killing: but fight not with; teem near the -Holy Mosque until i they light with you there; but If the} light with you there till them: such is the punishment of the infi? dels." The declaration of a jera I would arouse all Christendom in an matnilL There could be but pho outcome, but. before civilization would conquer there would he the sacrifice Iff Innumerable lives ami the loss' of unaccounted treasure. ii is interesting to notice how history is repealing itself. The gen? eration of to-day may seen) a repro? duction of ihe days when Constan? tinople fell, which Lew Wallace de? pleted with graphic clearness in bis , "Piince of India."
