The; flowing -is an "editorial taken
from The San Francisco Kxaminer:
The man who makes a good auto
mobile, efficient and cheap for the
crowd or magnificent and dear for
the few, is. a benefactor of humanity.
Great events . some upon us so
quickly that we scarcely see their
meaning. Few of us realize that the
automobile has done for the body of
man what- the telephone has done for
the voice.. The one problem of life is
epeed. He who can move, think, and
act quickly .doubles his life. The au
tomobile doubles the life and power
of the busy man. To be without an
automobilei if you cap possibly man
age to get one, is to be out of date,
cousin" to the dodo and brother to
the ox. The struggle for speed has
been the story of mankind. The tele
phone conquered distance for the
voice, the telegraph conquered dis
tance for the written message. The
automobile enables man to move about
as rapidly, as the bird and now the
intelligent citizen is asking himself.
"What machine shall 1 buy?"
Let us give some reasons why every
man who can should bily some ma
chine big, snorting' and expensive, it
he can afford it; smaller, less expen
sive, but the greatest possible addi
tion' to life, if the big one is too
The automobile means economy.
All that a man has in this life is
time, and very little of that. The
automobile adds to the power of an
hour, adds hours to a man's day,
doubles, triples and quadruples his ef
ficiency. ' And this does not apply
only to the doctor, with his many
visits, or to the fashionable women
rushed in nine directions by calling,
shopping and other pleasures and du
ties. The automobile will do more for a
Email plumber than for a man of lei
sure. It will do more for the butcher,
small contractor, or other little busi
ness man than for, the richest citizen.
Because the little man is more in
need of the machine that means more
work accomplished. Long ago, when
only "dudes," so called rode bicycles,
the envious scattered tacks and brok
en glass along the roads. We used
to tell the workers then that one day
they would be the chief users of the
bicycle and that statement is now a
fact. We tell the workers today that
th' time is coming when to them
more than to any other class the
cheap automobile or motorcycle car
wilt be the greatest blessing, anotnrr
"freeine of the serfs."' A workman
now can hardly believe that he ever
m.nosed the bicycle as the amusement
of the rich but he did that. In a
short time it will be unbelievable
that vexatious laws and innumerable
annoyances should have been devised
fn harass those engaged In develop
ing the automobile. You can get a
r.ur that will carry five men
eighteen miles for twenty cents worth
of gasoline. The man who writes
this, with fifty-; horses, standing ' in
the stable on his farm, bought two
automobiles lo.. send -farm hands to
their work. It was foolish waste to
let the men jog slowly behind farm
horses, and the machines cost less
than the horses, even, on a farm that
produces the horses'' food and does
not yield gasoline'.
The day is here when the smallest
tradesman, builder,' skilled mechanic,
can own an automobile economically.
Let a man care for his own ma
chinean intelligent boy of fifteen
can do it. Let the owner consider
that he is using his valuable proper-(
ty as he drives. Then the life of a
machine low in price is almost with
out limit. And the ownership of a
car far from being an extravagance,
is an actual economy. It saves time
and makes money during the week.
It gives happiness' to the entire family
on Sunday. It. is a healthful, useful
pleasure that discourages pleasures
that are harmful. The money that
has carried hundreds of thousands of
men no' farther than to the corner
saloon would take the whole family
out in the country on Sunday.
Whiskey and whiskey sellers hate
the automobile and -well they may.
The little man's car is here already.
The workman's car ' Is not faf away.
Within five years the tin dinner pail
will rest beside the clutch and the
brake at the bottom of a small car.
The wife will drive her husband to
work take her children to school, do
her marketing-no tonger tied down
to the prices of the p.earest store.
Many a weary workman at the
day's end, seeing thei birds flying so
easily to their nests, has wished that
he too had wings. Now the automo
actuallv give him wings. The

Long the War Mav Last
the British Isles Will Not
Suffer ,
DUBLIN, Aug. 30. There seems to
be an almost criminal disposition In
some quarters to provoke a panic over
rising prices of foodstuffs. At the first
shock of the news of Europe's peril the
corn markets became . serious, mainly
because the Baltic and Black sea grain
cargoes have become ah increasingly
large factor of late years.
But there is no need gratuitously to
assume that the daily bread of the
Londoners must necessarily rise to a
famine figure. It should be borne in
mind that the whole question "was -exhaustively
investigated ten years ago
by a royal commission on the supply
of food and raw material in time of
war. It was then shown that the stock
of wheat within the United Kingdom
would not fall below a seven weeks'
supply at any time of the year, while
in September, the harvest month, it
even reaches seventeen weeks' supply,
Moreover, there is usually afloat on its
way to these shores such a cargo of
wheat as will average another four to
seven weeks' supply, and only the un
imaginable contingency of the British
navy meeting with such a reverse in
the first days of the war as to lose
even temporary command of the seas
could hinder the supplies already on
their way from actually reaching' us.
So much for the fantastic nonsense
which is finding Its way into print con
cerning the household leaf in danger.
The question also inevitably revives
old proposals for establishing national
granaries a scheme which did not, by
the way, find much favOr with the royal
commission. What was suggested, as
offering less ground for objection from
a general economic or trade point of
view, was a scheme for providing storage-room
rent free, or otherwise sub
sidizing British farmers to retain their
harvest crops in stock at the disposal
of the government.
It has been estimated that the aver
age weekly consumption in the United
Kingdom is 630,000 quarters of wheat,
and that on September 1, with only an
average harvest, there will be an eight
weeks' supply in the farmers' hands, j
There will be, besides, the wheat stocks
held In warehouses at the principal
ports, and the stocks held by millers
and bakers. The latter stocks are
never large and would quickly be ex
hausted, but the stocks at ports of im
port can only be materially reduced
when the navy is no longer able to keep
open the trade routes. And against
any imminent shortage of Russian sup
plies of wheat and grain must be set
what is declared to be a record Ameri
can crop and the great Canadian har
vest Then It must not be forgotten that
Ireland is one of the chief sources of
food supply of Great Britain. Take the
item of meat meat of all kinds, beef,
mutton, bacon, - poultry, coming in,
whether alive or dead. Ireland sup
plies between one-third and one-half
of the total quantity of meat coming
from all the other countries of the
world put together. Last "year the value
of the meat entering Great Britain
.from Ireland was $115,000,000. The
next largest supplier of, meat, the Ar
gentine, is $40,000,000 bejpw-this figure.
Ireland sends more'thafc Sne-lhird of
the eggs and more than one-sixth of the
butter supplied to Great Britain of all
the other countries combined. Bulking
the food and drink stuffs of all de
scriptions produced in Ireland and con
sumed by men and animals' in Great
Britain, the value is over $150,000,000
annually; that is, more than Great
Britain receives from any other
Then, it is certainly not realized by
most people, that Ireland furnishes 75
per cent of the horses for he British
army, and that these are the' hesfr mil
itary horses in the world. Buyers from
all the continental armies have been
coming to Ireland for years; they are
to be seen at all the fairs, and shows;
and they buy the Irish horse not mere
ly as a remount but to breed from In
order to improve their own stock.
The agricultural wealth of Ireland

achieved mainly through the intelligent
energies of the Irish people themselves.
set free from the industry-killing bond
age of a bod land system, and guided
and trained through native institutions
of government, national and local, In
which the opinion of the people is rep
resented. In other words, the rjroeress
is an accompaniment, if not in some
measure a result, of the partial self
government the Irish people have in
recent years been enjoying, and the
advance In agricultural wealth Is most
marked over the southern and western
parts, of the country.
The progress might be illustrated by
many facts. For example, in 1904 the
value of the export from Ireland to
Great Britain of meat of all kinds was
$80,000,000. in nine years the Irish far
mers had so developed that item of
production that the value of the ex
port in 1913 was $115,000,000. " The
value of the annual export to Great
Britain, of poultry and eggs has been
Increased In six years by $5,000,000. A
gauge of the increase of agricultural
wealth is the amount of deposits and
cash balances In the Irish banks (joint
stock and post office savings banks),
making of the 'nation's automobiles?
Those men are ,in the highest sense
benefactors of their kind. Long life
to them, more success to them. They
see ahead and know that the automo
bile age is just beginning. Our six
million farms alone mean six million
automobiles he who doubts that is a
baby. The great work has only be
gun. Three cheers, for the automo
bile, which repays ten times over In
health, cash and happiness every dol
which has risen in 13 years, since 1900,
by $125,000,000
An idea of the general development,
industrial a: well, as agricultural, may
be obtained,.' from the increase in the
anniial volume of trade; Itj eight years
the total of the exports, and imports
of Ireland, which now amounts to over
$700,000,000 has risen by $175,000,000.
These are great, even astonishing fig
ures, which anyone may study in de
tail in. the official returns.
. But the progress is more suggestive
of the problem to be considered In. the
quality than in the quantity of the pro
duction; and in certain other ways.
Ireland,- which 15 or 20 years ago was
supposed to be the most-, backward
country in Europe, is now visited by
commissions of inquiry from other
countries, who go back and recommend
their -own governments to imitate the
Irish' :metfhods. Northern and South
ern Irishmen havve worked together in
this advance, meeting regularly in na
tional representative bodies, in which
they deliberate side by side.

Many shops were boarded up, their
owners having gone to enlist and
having no one to leave in charge. I
never saw such enthusiasm.
"Pretty soon we got glimpses of
troops. These men were not so hys

but they displayed a sort of 'do it or

Something new has come to town,

night in tip top condition and "put
everybody in a good humor when it
made its first appearance at Riverside
park early in the evening. The new
comer is the Cafe Chantant and it
made a great big hit from the start off.
Dinner was served in the dancing pa
vilion and covers were laid for some
seventy people. It would have been
hard to find a lovelier place for a sum
mer night's dinner than the big breezy
pavilion with its soft colored lights and
beautiful outlook. Around the front
and sides and back of the pavilion
hundreds of people were seated to en
joy the music and vaudeville acts that
gave the dinner its name, as to Its suc
cess there can be no question and the
entertainment will be repeated twice
during the week in the form of a Cafe
Dansunt instead of Chantant. The
Sunday dinners will be the same as
last night with a first class vaudeville
attachment; but on the week day af
fairs, first one next Wednesday, danc

the attractions.

This is Mother's Day at the park
again. Every Monday the park is open
to children under fifteen and all wo-
me nwithout charge until five o'clock
and a special price of fifteen cents for
using the pool Is made until that hour
for children under fifteen. This is done
to give all mothers and their children
an opportunity to enjoy the park at
practically no expense and make the
park a real playground for the people.
The pool received its usual Sunday
scrubbing last night and today there Is
deep water, clean and clear as crystal.
The great volume of absolutely clean
pumped water that flows through the
pool constantly, hundreds of gallons
every minute, provides swimming that
is absolutely Ideal under the most san
itary conditions that can be found any
where in the country.
People returning from the coast and
other resorts are loud In their praise
of conditions at Riverside and the great
chute there it is conceded excels
anything that can be found at any
coast resort either in the east or west.
Another thing that causes a lot of fav
orable comment is the slippery pole at
the west end of the pool. It proviHes
fun for thousands, both bathers and
the rocking chair fleet , and causes
more laughs In a minute than one us
ually finds In a gpod comedy.
Alden's Band Concert
A classical program was the order
of the day with Alden's concert band
ot Riverside park yesterday after
noon, and it proved a decided treat.
The opening number after the march
Thomas' Mignon Polonaise was the
most artistic rendition heard here for
a long time. The success or failure
of this . selection lies almost entirely
with the reed instruments. Some of
the clarinet passages here are known
to the music world as among the
most difficult of execution ever writ
ten for band work. But the boys
rose to the occasion In an admirable
manner, and showers of applause
were spontaneous at the conclusion.
Manager Alden played a beautiful
cornet solo" by request, using "The
Holy City" as the vehicle. Alden
has long established himself in Phoe
nix as a cornet player and whenever
he is up for a solo the audience is
assured of a most pleasing number. "
Paderewski's Minuet next received
attention. This perhafps is the best
known of all the famous composi
tions of this genius. ' It Is seldom
that a band the size of Alden's at
tempts anything of this magnitude,
but the rendition yesterday was re
ceived with open arms. Roy Porter's
execution of the cadenza here '-on the
clarinet was a brilliant piece of work,
and brought forth no end of the most
flattering praise.
. The "popular air" program was not
overlooked. The medley of IVving
Berlin's hits was perhaps the most
pleasing. Berlin is possibly the best
known of all the writers of popular
songs, and the medley played yester
day was most happily rhosen. It con
tained no ejq ,or:, songs 'that are
heard everywhere and on more than
one occasion the- crowd -;llended its
whistling efforts with the music of
the band.
A Boston woman was talking of
Paris. The question of the relative
courtesy of nations came up.
"Well, it would take a very good
Illustration to persuade me that any
people beat the French," she re
marked. "I'll give you an example:
"I was walking down the Champs
Elysees, and wanted to find a par
ticular street called the Rue de la
Clochee. Not knowing just where to
turn off into the side street, I asked
a young Frenchman who- passed me
If he could direct me to it He
assured me, with a thousand pardons,
i he did not know.
"A few minutes later I heard hur
rying feet behind me, and there was
my Frenchman. ,
" "Madame, he said, sweeping off
his hat afid bowing profoundly, 'did
you not ask me the way to the Rue
de la Clochee? I was sorry that I
did not know, but I have seen my
brother and asked him, and I am
sorry to inform you, madame, he did
not know, either.' "

Nothing in History With
Which Great European
Struggle May Be Given
comparison JNotnmg
Like It Was Imagined
(By W. Hamilton Rhodes)
LONDON, Aug. 30. The Standard
has this to say regarding the prob
able duration of the war: History
knows no parallel to the contest now
in progress. Compared with the
forces that are engaged the semi-
mythical hordes that are supposed to
have swept through Asia under
Genghis Khan and Timur and other
conquerors seem insignificant. Their
marauding multitudes were not whole
nations armed. A war in which the
contending armies are reckone'd in
millions is without precedent in the
annals of humanity. What it must
involve in the shape of national ruin,
individual suffering, social disorgani
zation, and the destruction of life
and property we cannot yet imagine.
We shall soon begin to learn.,
There may be one gleam of hope
amid this darkness as of the grave.
The war is calamitous beyond all
example. It seems, however, that it
must be short. It is, indeed, haz
ardous to attempt to forecast the
course or result of any war. The
prophets are usually wrong. In the
war between Austria and Prussia in
1866 the odds were laid heavily on
Austria everywhere. In 1870 most
people in England thought that the
Germans might put up a good fight,
but would be beaten in the end.
Japan had many supporters in
1904, but on the whole it was believ
ed that the chances were in favor
of Russia. Wljen the Balkan war
broke out those who were bold
enough to predict that the Slav states
would break the back of the Turkish
resistance in a few weeks were
scoffed at by the military experts. In.
the present case there are many in
calculable elements. The Germans
are supposed to be relatively worse
than they were in 1870 and the
French better; but how much better
and how much worse?
The Russian mobilization is an un
known quantity; it . is Impossible to
say how long it will take to translate
the enormous paper strength of the
empire into effective units at the
front. The Austrian army Is an un
known quantity, too; nobody can
really say how it will stand the test
of action. And then there are all the
accidental and personal factors which
render every war to some degree a
game of chance. A supreme military
genius on one side or the other may
make all the difference. But these
great armies will be led by men who
have been trained in peace. The
Buonaparte or Marlborough may be in
any of the camps; or in none of
But though so much is uncertain,
though we do not know what an hour,
a day, a supreme moment of achieve
ment or hazard may bring forth, there
seems some basis for the prediction
that this cosmic struggle cannot he
protracted. It may be accepted almost
as an historic axion that the smaller
the force engaged, relatively to the
size and resources of the combatant
nations, the longer will the war be.
The mediaeval Hundred Years' War
between England and France, the Thir
ty Years' War in Germany, were waged

!As the armies have grown national
the campaigns have grown shorter.
The Seven Weeks' War of 1866 between
Austria and Prussia began the new
phase; the Franco-Prussian War of
1870 might have ended quickly but for
the heroic, though hopeless, defense of
Paris, prolonged after the military po
sition of France was irretrievable; even
the savage little Balkan peoples fought
themselves to a standstill in the first
two months. In the old days fifty
thousand troops could keep the field
for years, since there was the whole
national Teservoir of men and material
to supply them with clothing and mu
nitions, to replenish the wastage of
disease and death.
''Food for powder,"' as the cynical
phase went, was cheap; it could always
be got, so long as too much of it was
not wanted at once. With all the
wealth and manhood of Britain to draw
upon we could manage. to provide Wel
lington with some 30,000 British troops
in the peninsula, we could even throw
away nearly 40,000 men in the miser
able Walcheren expedition without be
ing perceptibly the worse for the loss.
But in this war there is no reserve
of national power of man-power and
of money-power upon which the
drafts can be continuously made; for
all the resources of the belligerents,
whether human or material, must be
cast with reckless prodigality into the
scale at the outset. There is no time
for economy, no scope for holding back
anything that can be made available at
the moment.
The entire adult male population of
fighting age in France and Germany
are being hurried towards the points
of concentration as fast as trains can
take them. The number of troops in
the zones of action is only limited fcy
the facilities of transport Modern
strategy aims at delivering overwhelm
ing blows at the opening of a cam
paign. For this it will sacrifice every
thing else, including the capacity to
carry on the long, slow, patient strug
gles of the past. All the energies of
the nation, physical, moral, and eco
nomic, are keyed up to such a pitch
that the tension cannot be maintained
for long any more than the runner can
start for a three-mile race at the pace
of a hundred -yard dash.
It is a desperate sprint, not a long
distance contest which Is attempted.
Money as well as bloodHvill be poured

Even the premonition of war has
nearly paralyzed the world's credit
system and shaken the whole edifice of

pen a little later, when nearly all pro
duction, except for military purposes,
is at an end among three hundred
millions of civilized people? None of
the belligents can afford to ruin them
selves, even to achieve victory. How
near that point the continental govern
ments can venture to go, and how
heavily they can try the patience and

to be solved in the dark and terrible
