MUNSEY, President. R. H. TITHEKINGTON; Secretary. C. H." POPE, TREASURER. On Tear (Including Sundj). lift gli month. tl.Tft Thr Month. ton. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1010. A STATE OF WAR IN MEXICO V Tho Judge advocate general'of the army has mussed up things by rul ing that a state of war exists in Mexico. Officially, then, for the pur ' poses of administration, tho conduct of tho army, anuVthe trial of of fenders who in conditions of peace would bo tried by clvil courts, we are at war. If we aro'not at war with Mexico, we at least are at war in Mexico. It is a curiously -anomalous condition, but tho ruling of General Crowder is the essence of common sense, even iC.it mny be a bit embarrassing to an Administra tion that is assuring the country that it has "kept us out of war." Without a doubt, conditions in Mexico arc increasingly menacing. Whether Villa shall be the leader, or a schism in the Carranzista forces shall bring Trevino or Borne other man to the top, it needs no Bevtjnth son to forecast that trouble is brew ing. The announcement that no more troops are to be -taken away from tho border means more than is indicated on the surface. The Mexi can embassy devotes itself to denials that the Villa movement is becoming noro formidable; but there is no as surance that within the Carranza camp all is' well and harmonious, while well authenticated reports de clare that the first chief is losing his grip on the situation. "COLLEOE tyBN IN POLITICS A significant feature of, the Presi dential campaign js the participation of large numbers of college men in all parts of the country. The Hughes Clubs and the Wilson-Clubs, springing up in colleges and uni vrsitics, betoken a newly awakened interest of young men in politics, vliich Jb going to be a mighty good t'ihig for politics. Student movements in continental European nations long have been a feature of 'political life. Over there, moreover, the students have been the eource of much of the radicalism that has resulted in political evolu tion. A Washington traveler, recently returned from Scandanayiq, gave a vivid picture of the way in which students at the Norwegian and Swedish universities gather with the rniddle-aged and gray-bearded gradu ates to hold talkfests on politics nd governmental activities. In recent years an unusual hum mer of educators have entered the fiolitical field, and opinions of col ego professors and executives arc carrying weight. Much of our po litical progress must come from the college men, and their interest means hey aro cultivating a deeper ap preciation of those institutions which rnake for more efficient government. It used to be a sad spectacle to see young college- men coming away from institutions where they should have gained new ideas about gov ernment, flocking without question into the old ruts, and voting blindly with this party or that. When these young men begin early to take an Interest in politics they are likely to cultivate tho habit of asking ques tions and taking few things for granted. The parties they enter wirf be vitalized by their presence. OR. MUENSTERBERO'S NEW ALLIANCE Dr. Hugo Muensterberg, whose correspondence with his German offi cial friends was recently tho occa sion of much edification when a JieartlcsH British publicity agency pave it to the world, announces that n new alliance of Germany, Austria, Russiu, and Japan is by way of formation. Once the new alliance is effected, ho opines, it will turn to crushing out the ambition of Britain for world power. So he advises that the German and English people, who nre now indisposed to make peace, pive attention to this new menace and get together as soon as possible. Dr. Muensterberg's view will not be highly convincing. Russia and Germany are the new rivals for con trol of the Dardanelles. Time was when England was tho chief figure in every alliance to keep tie Slav nway from the open Mediterranean, vhen Turkey was supported by one British administration after another because Turkey represented the pre text for holding back Russia. But that was before German ambitions in tho Near East had developed their juescnt specific character. Germany wants everything that Britain for merly suspected Russia of wanting, and more; so Russia and Britain are pitched into each other's arms, whether or no. An alliance of Rus" t,!u and Germnny now looks almost iiw illogical as an alliance of Britnin Miu Kussia looked a few ycaru ago to Britishers of the type that found its convictions voiced in "Tho Truce of tho Bear." Recent testimony to the fact .that Dr. Muensterberg is an authoritative if unofficial agent of German propa ganda in this country, breaks the forco of that eminent scholar's analysis of international conditions. He will bo looked upon as voicing tho wishes of Germany; and when he threatens England with a quadruple alliance for her destruction, he will bo taken, in Downing street, Just as scrioufllyxas Downing street thinks he deserves to be taken. Downing street knows whether there is dan ger .of Russia pulling away from its present alliances ' and engaging in new ones. There is every reason to believo that Russia has no intention of such a move, until, at least, the present war' shall have been ended with a victory for tho, entente. Ger many would be glad to wean ?r o" "ffi ulTinB down its lists of articles ad tentc. She has tried it with both, and the net' results thus far have been only a more determined effort by both countries to, put forth their utmost power for the defeat of Russia. Tho entente powers show no disposition to become suspicious of each other merely for the accom mo'dation of Berlin. , "HARDENINOOPTHB ARTERIES" A more apposite phrase for de-1 scribing the present condition of American railroads could not easily have been found than that employed by Mr. Vandcrlip in his address in Washington yesterday. They aro beginning to suffer from hardening of the arteries, and it is a bad situ ation. Mr. Vanderlip might have given an illustration of what it means for a country's railroads to fall into this condition, if he had chosen to take up the railroad history of Great Britain for the last generation. The railways of that country are not nearly so important to its commer cial and industrial welfare as are those of America to this country. Britain is a small country, and no part of it is more than a few miles from the sea. Most of the freight of Great Britain is handled by water. London's coal comes to it al most entirely by boat in normal times, though in war it is under stood that an increasing part is turned over to the rails, because shipping is scarce and costly. British railroads lost a good deal of their attractiveness to investors a long time ago. Railway develop ment could be continued only at enormous cost. Parliament, repre senting the landholding classes, had to authorize every move toward rail road expansion; a "private bill" was necessary, and the landowners never failed to insure that their interest should be fully protected when it came to buying rights of way and the like. So railroad construction was made tremendously expensive, and the roads were driven to the ex pedient of piling up bigger and big ger capital account to carry on their operations. The difficulties of finan cing the roads increased constantly; their rates, on examination a few years ago, were found to bo very high in proportion to those of the German roads, ht was pointed out, in fact, that one of the greatest ad vantages Germany possessed in competition for trade was in this detail of cheaper railroad transpor tation. The impositions on British rail roads came in a different fqrjn, but they had the same effect as excesses of ill-directed regulation have had on American roads. Britain made it unduly expensive both to build and to operate roads. This country has been making it unduly expensive to operate them, by reason of tho com plexity of SJato and interstate regu lation; and hardening of .the arteries results just as naturally in one case as in the other. There must be a vast railroad development in this country in the next generation, or else there will be a deadening of commercial circulation. No grcnt country is so dependent on railroads for internal transportation as this. The situation is coming to be real ized, and there is a better Bentiment toward the railroads; but the pub lic's amiability is of small value when it is offset by such egregious misfortunes as the recent surrender of the railroads into the hunds- of the Big Four labor unions. THE WASHINGTON SQUARE PLAYERS In venturing out dn their first tour, the Washington Square Pla'y ers of New York are extending tho scope of one of tho most interesting and unique institutions of the Amer ican stage. Three years ago, following, the failure of numerous theaters which had been started to produce plays artistically, the Players organizedin New York with no 'capital but an idea and the love of work. They have succeeded where heavily en dowed experiments havo failed; probably because they havo had sufficient sense of humor not to tnke themselves too seriously, and because they have adequately produced short masterpieces of modern dramatic literature. If their theater has' dono nothing else, it has proved that what is best in the theater" wlUbo appreciated by the public. , " Tho organization is professional, and at the same timo non-commercial. Tho result of the tour which tho players aro now under taking will bo especially interesting, in that 'it-Will show the Btato of mind that exists outside of Now York, regarding things theatrical. If Waohington . and other cities visited by tho Players find in them something new, entertaining and worthwhile as Now. York has dono tho organization may point tho way to establishment of a national theater. HOW WAR PAYS ITS OWNVAY Russia is about prohibiting impor tation of a great number of articles, Bomo of which would bo classed as tuv.ffefnft mill oimn not nprfflRarifH. Rus-jGreat mi&n ,ong Bg0 bcgan prun. missiblo to tho country, aiming par ticularly to restrict the expenditure of money for things not really neces sary. " ' When it comes to making up such a list, the question is at onco raised, what is a luxury and what a neces sary? The Russian prohibited list, effective yesterady, is given thus: Freah vegetables and fruit (ex cept lemon), preserved food, mus tard nnd sauce, pickles, etc.; tobac- ...... I.a...... ttl ,,llta jatns, confectionery; canned fruits nnd berries: lions, spirit, beer, wines and liquors, mineral waters (other than medicinal water): cheese, fish, feathers and down; pat ent leather, certain fur skins, leather gloves and small articles of leather. Including sporting Roods; certain articles of wood and basket ware, precious stones, certain build ing stones, certain kinds of pottery and glassware, toilet soap, manu factures of gold, silver, and plati num; certain manufactures of cop per and alloys of copper, cutlery ar ticles with expenslvo mountings, binoculars, musical Instruments, ur Holes of cardboard, cotton, velvet and plush, fabric of slk and half silk, certain felt goods, carpets, certain knit goods and trimming, tulle, luce and manufactures of lace, embroideries and embroidered fab rics, clothing and underwear, wom en's hats, fur caps, umbrellas and parasols, toys, expensive fancy and toilet articles In general. It is widely different from the British lists, because the two peo ples are different and their abilities to supply substitutes, by home in dustry, for articles heretofore im ported, very widely. These prohibitions of unnecessary importations indicate how war is made to pay its own way. The truth is that the terrific cost. of war is never so terrific as the statisticians arc able to make it look, because economies are enforced that pay much of the bill as the conflict jroes along. A business man who came over from England and France a few days ago, having been on the other side for three years, declared that "everybody in both countries is mak ing money hand over fist." Of course, that didn't include the sol diers in the trenches; but it was made so sweeping as to include about everybody else. He said: War taxation I terrific. Vint and mainly. It takes from thoso that havo most; they have to give up largely of their Incomes. It forces frreat numbers, especially In Bnjr and, to become producers for tho first time. Krigland , is a country with a great leisure class; people who have accumulated cnougn to bo ablo to llvo without work, nnd who promptly quit working. Th-iy nro working again. There Is work for everybody, and big my for It; men and women alike. The government restricts tho list of things on which the may spend their earnings: 3d there is an oxcess; and taxation reaches out and seizes this excess for tho public treasury. But the great majority of peoplo nre bet'er off than ever before; tho wealthy minority Is hard up for thu timo be ing, in the rather easy way that wealth is Impoverished in such con ditions. Hut the economies of the war, plus thu expansion of trado in new fields, the Immense earnings of tho merchant marine, and so on, make the economic situation alto gether different from what mtsht be Imagined If one merely read tho re ports of tho statisticians who say the war Is costing Great Britain $23, 000,000 a day.

Campaign tor Furies To Assist Friendship House Closes Today The campaign to raise $5,000 tifr thetr annual budget by. tho member of the Friendship Houie Association, closes today. The campaign has lasted a week, and during that time the member of tho association have exerted every effort to raise the required sum by asking con tributions from Woahlngtonlans. Last night, tho report of the amount raised during the week showed only $933.76, and although thoso in charge of tho cam paign aro expecting this amount to reach the 81,000 mark today, thero Is at present a difference of H.OM.IS between the amount actually raised and tho re quired sum. ' It Is stated that tho entlro amount, practically, has been received by small contributions, dropped In the boxes sta tioned In the different stores In the shopping district. Other amounts have been sent directly to the treaiurer at Frendahlp Home. "We neod 84,000 now," atatod the head- Sees, Hughes Majority In Electoral College (Continued from First Page.)
