Enough, however, may be gleaned from a pursuit of knowledge that is ac far-reaching as possible -that probably extends outward in all directions a ny Individual pursuit may—to In spire grave mistrust of the attitude ot general apathy which lets Mi- preachers preach and the prophets prophesy in vain.

This Is American ism, and an application of it to condi tions will produce the best results. It is one ni 1 ih" masterly peculiarities of the first principles of Americanism that they are as wide as human nature. and en every ease. Legislation that consult! the wishes and helps the plans of any special interest at the expense of the people cannot be con sider* legislation, and a policy which lias this i Sect cannot be con sidered a good poiiey for the people. Therefore we fail to see why th< r* should be the slightest hesitancy over appreciating correctly and dealing justly with the case of the brewing Interest i" Its relation to the retail liquor business and the people. To accommodate customers is one thing: ke advantage of a license law In order to obtain monopolistic control of a market and then to seek diligently to gel aboiri the work or encouraj and developing that specially created and fostered markel is another. The .lute divone of retail traffic in liquor from the "liquor manufacturing 1 Industry and the extinction of blind no matter how disguised, are principal elements In a practical pro gram of reform. The habitual disregard of the wishes of a large and ever increasing section Of the population by all who are in terested In the liquor traffic and the terms of contempt and even of insult In which many of these reformer* are refi ! red to by persons interested In pushing the sal" of wines and liquors in order to dc rive profit therefrom is revolting; to the American sense of fair play, and will not heln the a which is engaging the attention of an ever Increasing circle of good Ameri cans, AIRSHIP PROGRESS THE cable brings word of the pro posed construction of a new Zep pelin dirigible over 900 feet long and 80 feet In diameter, capable of carrying 300 passengers. This, has a significant bearing on the war situation in Europe. Airship* of the German tyre are not likely to become a factor in freight or passenger carrying business. The reason is obvious to all who know anything of the cost of gas for con tainers the size of the Zeppelin ship now in existence or the one projected. a dirigible capable of carrying 300 pas sengers would readily carry armament and explosives sufficient to put the largest European cities at the mercy of the sky navigators. The excessive cost of operation would seem to eliminate the gas Inflated dirig ible f«»in commercial use and an aerial Jtauretania would remain In its hangar until needed for war maneuvers or actual warfare. Wjien an attacking dirigible can sail 5000 or 10,000 feet in the air circum vailation is obsolete, outposts are. obso lete, firtified.JlneV "I all earthly kinds are antiquated. The strongest fortifica tions 'of"the modern type are at the mercy of an overhpaj attack, and hor rible as the idea of using modern scien tific flight as a war method is, it i- an idea that is already being cherished and studied by military experts. , ■■' Borne of the best engineers of• the world who have given the subject deep thought have decided that the rigid dirigible with a sustaining element of small cost will soon be put into coin merulal service. In order to give Count Zeppelin's airship the necessary struc tural rigidity it has been built jrtth metals' s,, heavy that it requires a tremendous gas container' to lift. it. Scientists say the expen. . ul inflation would be greatly reduced by th,- adop tion .ii a type of ship of comparatively I -■',-.■ light weight, inflated by hot an- radi ated by the engine and Trom the ex haust, and that wilh this type human beings ami greater weights cotfcld b< carried safely with smaller Containers. The supporting element would hi- re newed constantly during Right and the dirigible then would !»• comparatively on a jiar with the locomotive generat ing its own steam. It la deplorable that these modern in ventions, which should and eventually must add to the comfort and con venience of mankind, should first of all lie considered as war machines, and that is the worldwide Interpretation Which will be put nn the announced in tention of Zeppelin to construct a mini ster ship. The logical conclusion is he intends to use the space that could he allotted to 300 passengers for artillery, projectiles and explosives that could wreck any city and t educe it to flam- Ing debris within a few minutes after the first explosive was dropped. Americans and American inventors, we are glad to say, did not sel about their work with the aim of devising mi thods of speedy destruction "f hu man beings and property. They have bei n eu tuated by constructive ami flcent motives, and it te to he hoped the line of study and invention that will he pursued will lead to improved commercialism, not to deadlier militar ism, nut the stupendous and gfjevous wrong that would lie inflicted on benef icent heaven and progressive humanity should the greatest mod. m invention be wrested to diabolical purposes would lie its own Nemesis. x o nation would suffer as badly as that which dared again to scale the Olympian heights and steal tlie very fires of Jove in order to attempt to glut Us puny vengeance or s;;i" its despicable avarice.

QUIBBLING OVER BIBLE • HAS NO PLACE IN LETTER BOX PASADENA, Jan. 19.— [Editor Her ald]: 1 1 think the forum is all right— and as a rule interesting and instruc tive—but I don't like to see quibbling in honest discussion. With your per mission, I wish to call .1. R. Witts' at tention to the fact that there are oth ers who have read the Christian Bible. Mr. Kitts, you say verse 34 of chap ter 24 of Matthew was a. parable. You convey the idea that Christ was not referring to the end of this world. Then you skip around, hunting pas sages of Scripture that are irrelevant to the question or meaning of said verse 34. Bee verse 3 of same chapter. 11.-re his beloved disciples came to Jesus privately and asked him force quesr tions in plain language. Tell us when shall these things be, ami what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world. Not as you pretend—discontent, un rest, coldness, frost, etc. And the res) of th" whole ' hapter is Christ's expla cation of what would happen before this world would coma to an end. It seems to me, Mr. Kltts, you did purposely misconstrue the teaching! of Christ. YOU go back to Genesis to prove your makeshifts. Read chapter l(i of Matthew, verse 28. Did Christ mean we or today, I^7."> years from that time. Then in chapter 23 of Matthew, verse -•;. lie again speaks of that generation, and you know it. Then read Jlark xiii, 29-30; Luke ix. 28, 27: Luke xxi, 31-38. Now, Mr. Kitts. upon honor, was Christ then talking to those of that day, or was he address- Ing us 1575 yean after his death. See I Corinthians, vli, 27-39, Paul was looking for Christ to come soon, and told people not to marry, and told married men who had Wives to be as though they had none. And to this day tew women and hosts of men have been following- Paul's Instruc tions. I'aul said the time was to be short (meaning until end of world), but it has been 1876 years, and the old earth still moves. Oli, what folly! Any one who lias read the Bible carefully and wishes to be honest, oven in diSCUS alon, knows thai Paul meant the time was short till the end of this world. Now, Mr. Kitts, it does not seem just right to see a minister of Christ quib ble, does it? DR. H. H. DOW. WORDING IS CHANGED IN REVISED EDITION OF BIBLE LOS a.\<;ki.ks. Jan. t».—[Editor Herald!: The admirable reply D. Krebs made to my earnest request for in formation regarding authenticity of the Bible Is highly appreciated. In his taking exception to my substituting the word "need" for "shall" in Isaiah 86:8, it is not out of jdace to call his attention to the fact that in the re vised edition a word was changed in verse 7 of .same chapter, therefore 1 am not the first offender, —•—There Is no agreement < of opinion ai to whether Jesus did or'dldnot "ful fill every lav." In the "Life of Jesus," by Kenan, who spent a lifetime on his subject, this brilliant thinker and au thor, taking Internal and external evi dence, »uch, for instance as (Talm of Jerus, Sanhedrim 14:16;. Talm of Bab., Sanhedrim 43a,' 67a) says: I "The law would be abolished and it was to be abolished by him," meaning Jesus was to abolish the law of Moses and not to "fulfill," clalrfling Jesus completely lost his Jewish faith Just previous to his return to Galilee, exchanging this faith for the beautiful moral precepts of his second period. '-■;"■ To use Mr. Krebs' words regarding Coloasians 2:12-13: "All (laws) are tak en out of the way," may be true the oretically, but in the domain of facts, If the words of history'have any mean ing, Judaism has tenaciously clung to the nations of Christendom. , in past and present treatment of wo. men generally and prisoners in par ticular smackk of savage Instincts and of the old law, "an eye for an eye." , ■ ,1.

Next to It, to drive the lesson home, is another poster de tig in letters qf Rftme, "Tarifl Re form Means a Job for Every .Man." Across the street there is a dlff< n hi slm-y. A poster shows an empty-pated peer In his ducal robes whining: "Tax your loaf but do not tax my land." Alongside is an argument to prove, In box car letters, that a tariff (ax will ase the cost n;' living ami that a tax on wheat will lessen the size of the workingman's loaf of bread: '"i';ii Iff Reform Means Happier Dukes!" II was a very duel of the bill-p< ist ers. A Liberal poster deputed a sturdy Briton in shirt sleeves looking earnest Ij toward heaven and, with out stretched hands, exeMlmlng, "We want land!" Two days later the < !on i Ives retaliated with a poster showing a starving man. in exactly the same attitude, crying, "We want work!" it was an effective stroke, but the Liberals countered with a pic ture or tiie starving wife or tin- starv ing man, crying, "Do not tax our last loaf!" The Tories, as the Connrvajtives are called by their opponents, make the must nr-the alleged Socialistic tenden of the budget, but their posters have little to say about the land lax question.

The subscription was bosun De cember 28, the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Grand Old -Man, for the purpose or buying and putting up posters. Over $80,009 "as contribute. 1 to this one poster fund in less than two weeks' time. Tin- national head quarters permit tile individual candi dates and the party at large to do all the worrying about the campaign funds. How would Mr. Hitchcock and -Mr. .Mack like that?
