IF we may credit the newspaper dispatches the war spirit is rampant in Europe, but it is still to be hoped- that a general | conflagration may be avoided. In the last analysis no legiti-i mate excuse or reason can be found for it. The selfishness of! the Nations, primarily involved in it, is apparent. The demands! made by Austria on Servia were neither just nor equitable, and Servia could not fairly be expected to accede to them. Austria's attitude, therefore, is that of the bully. Servia has but recently emerged from two disastrous wars neither of which was credit able to the humane instincts of any of the states engaged m it Not one of them conducted their campaigns according to the rules of "civilized warfare." Civilized warfare! What a mis nomer! As if there could be such a thing. War and the makers of war belong not to civilized but to barbarous times. Nearly two thousand years of Christian civilization have failed to elimin ate from the history of the world the horrible records of the de vastation and death wrought through the cupidity, pride or pas sions of Nations and of men. War is an anachronism; it is brutal, vengeful, lustful and devilish in its conception and exe cution. It but proves the faults of our alleged civilization and its failure in this respect at least. The story of the late Balkan wars is one of supreme human misery; of rapine and unmentionable crimes, participated in alike by all of the combatants. But it has failed to be an object lesson to other stronger and supposedly more highly civilized peoples. From a merely human standpoint war is atrocious, it is econ omically destructive, degrading, hideous, and those Nations engaging in it and encouraging the trade of war by the main tenance of vast war armaments, alone are responsible for its ravages. When the great mass of the plain people of the leading Nations of the world shall realize that they themselves are those who make war possible by furnishing their bodies as food for powder, and refuse to sacrifice themselves at the command of prince, potentate or any other power war will be known no more forever. But not until then. English women are excoriating those of their sex who at tended the Welsh-Ritchie fight. However, it can be said to their credit, at least, that they were not setting fire to churches, throwing inkstands at judges or horsewhipping Cabinet Ministers. THE MOANING OF THE TIED. U/CONGRESSMAN HUMPHREY is certainly proving himself to be the sharpest kind of a thorn in the Democratic hide." chortles the Seattle Times, in ponderous glee. And it continues: "He allows no opportunity to pass when he can pull the administration over the coals and soundly dress it down. His efforts * * * are worthy of being read by every patriotic American citizen." They are. are they* But is the Times a judge of what con stitutes patriotism? Has it not misused the word? Does it not mean "partisan" instead of "patriotic?" The Seattle paper's brand of partisanism is unmistakable, its patriotism may be a matter of doubt. Political partisanism among men and news papers sometimes produces myopia that would be painful to the reading public were not the causes so apparent. The newspapers and the men in and out of Congress who are the most virulent in their attacks upon the National administration belong to an age that has practically passed. They are political Silurians who have failed to realize that the old order has changed; that a new era in the government of this Nation has begun, and there is no going back. The monopoly of the flesh pots has passed from their hands never to return. They do not know it?yet. As the "heathen in his blindness bows down to wood and stone," so this class cannot comprehend that the political gods they have wor shiped blindly and whose shibboleths fall glibly from tongue and pen are but relics of an age which happily has all but passed. These were the direct beneficiaries of that period of pelf and profit for fhe few. Hence the wailing and the gnashing of teeth by such public men as Humphrey; hence the avid commendation of him by the Seattle publication. Both typify the Bourbon in political life; like Ephrain- they are still turned to their idols; like the horseleech's daughters they still cry, give, give." Their patriotism is hurt when their pocketbook is touched; when their opportunities for the exploitation of the people have fteen curtailed the honor and glory and pride of the land have been besmirched. This class of men and newspapers believe that all the benefits, and the unearned increment of government are for the few, while with the instincts of the true, unadulterated Bourbon, they believe that the masses are not to be trusted, and that they can be fooled all the time. They live upon the fatness of their past blind to the promise of the future or the changing conditions of the present. Therefore, let them comfort them selves as they may in their wailing places of departed hopes. OLDEST BANK IN ALASKA c The B. M. Behrends Bank ' Juneau.
