CAUSE OF THE GERMAN REVERSAL I Tho fighting in France, along the Aisne river, indicates that the Ger qiabs have not sufficient forces to break through the lines of the al lies. In the heglnnins of the war. the Kai6er"s troops outnumbered the Krnch and British, the force under General French being pursued by nearly three to one. I This change in the relative strength of the belligerents must be due to two things. The Germans, becoming alaimcd oer the Russian movement on the frontier of East Prussia, must hae withdrawn troops from Franco, lfiO troop trains having been reported late in August proceeding from the v t biern to ttve eastern theatre ol war While Germany was transferring part of Its army, the allies were re ceiving heavy reinforcements and the mobilization in France was being completed. Our opinion Is thnt French mobillza tion wa6 not realized as soon as re ported, that there were serious de lays and the French army did not get well under way until near the end of August. Cn no other basis can we account for the sudden turn In affairs which occurred on September 6, unless it be shown that the French and British are more courageous and skillful and better armed than the Germans, a condition not borne out by the reports from the battlefield, which invariably refer to the fury and violence of the German attacks and the Germans reckless disregard of life - on UTAH POLITICS AS SEEN FROM AFAR. vjm Harold M. Pitt of the Merchants Association of Manila, Philippine 7 W Islands, writing to Judge H. H Ro gl lapp, congratulates the Ogden man on lM having aligned himself with the Re JB publicans of Utah and declares the m people of Utah will make a big mis I 9 take If they fall to return Reed Smoot '. 9 to the United States Senate. His ' 9 letter, a high tribute to Reed Smoot, 9 is here given in full: "My Dear Judge Rolapp: "Late advices bring word that the I JM Progressives and Democrats are com I Mt bining in Utah in an attempt to over ?raH throw the Republican partv in the state. 't9 "I read with much interest and sat- fWm faction of your allying yourself with -.fl the Republican party and I cannot j&H understand how any sensible man jH not Influenced by puerile sentiment EPfl an who is interested in the progress j and development of the state could . do otherwise than support the party fl' that ha always stood by the Indus- tries of Utah. . "While I have always felt a cer M' taln amo"t of sympathy for the Pro- gressives In so far as their policies JgH might tend to make the Republican 19 Party PrSresslve, It has always ap- II peareu to me that more could have Fl n accon,Pll8bed had they remained $t$m In and worked with the Republican J party.

PITT." jH The state of Maine became a great m power in the affairs of this nation in mm the days of Tom Reed and Senators Hale and Dlngley and prior thereto mm and this influence was obtained by bo mW lecting capable men and keeping them in Washington until, through seni- ority and familiarity with public busi m ne8B they become recognized party leaders. Even the Democrat of m Maine helped to retain those men in office owing to the prestige they brought the state. A private citizen from Maine often could get a recog nition In Washington coveted bv some I of our western senators Today no , resident of Utah is denied a hpnrlni: ; In the highest departments of the government. If his appenl is directed I through Senator Reed Smoot, and the Snnnt-r has never been known to discriminate on party lines. Should Utah lose Senator Smoot, the state would fiifter in representa tion and sink to the position of other western states. GREAT COST OF THE WAR. I .Some figures have been given out on the cost of the war. Germany ostlmatcs her outlay at five million collars a day. For one year, that 1b nearly two billion dollars, and the Germans claim to have tho war fi nanced for that period Franco must have an equal outlay and Great Britain and Russia each are under a financial drain as large. If the war continues a year, the combined expenditures of the beillg c-ents will be not less than tea bil lion dollars The destruction of property may total another billion dollars and the Ics6 in industrial activities two or three billion dollars This, certainly, is a billion-dollar war. oo HE WOULD CRUSH GERMANY. The bitterness of the Belgians knows no bounds. Their most promi nent men, had they the making of the terms of peace would crush Germany Maurice Maeterlinck, the famous poet of Belgium, is quoted by the London Dally Mail as urging that the allies, while the carnage is at its highest, decide on the punishment to be iu flietcd on Germany, as he fears time will cause a "censurable pity to creep over us and cloud our eyes, Maeterlinck presents his views as follows: "After the final victory, when the enemy is crushed as crushed he will be efforts will he made to enlist our sympathy. We shall be told that the unfortunate German people are mere ly the victims of their monarch and their feudal caste; that no blame at taches to the Germany we know that is so sympathetic and cordial the Gc-ruany of quaint old housos and open-hearted greetings, the Germany Chat sits under its lime-trees beneath the clear light of the moon but only to Prussia, hateful, arrogant Prussia; lhat homely, peace-loving Baaria. the genial, hospitable dwellers on the banks of the Rhine, the Slloslan and Saon I know not who husides have merely obeyed and been com pelled to obey orders they detested but were unable- to resist "We are in the face of reality now Let us look at it well, and pronounce our sentence, for this is the moment when we hold the proofs in our hands, when the elements of the enmo are not before us and should out the truth that will soon fade from our memory Let U6 tell our selves now, therefore, that all we Bhall be told hereafter is false. Let us unflinchingly adhere to what we shall decide at this moment when the ghtre of the horror is on us "It is not true that in this gigantic crime there are innocent and guilty, or degrees of guilt. They stand on one level, all who have taken part. The German from the north has no more especial craving for blood than the German from the south hag espe cial tenderness and pity. It is very simple It is the German from one end of the country to the other who stands revealed as a beast of prey, that the firm will of our planet re pudiates." The poet is too deeply swayed by the horrors of th war to permit or cool Judgment When the day of reckoning comes, if the allies are victorious, they should be slow to In flict any punishment further than a reparation, with perhaps a restoration to France of Alsace-Lorraine. We want the peace termB to be so magnanimous that when Germany emerges from the conflict the burden will be none too great for the plain people of Germany to bear. The hatred must not be so Intense as to torce the citizens of Germany to cling to militarism as a future hope of disenthrallment, as did the French after Bismarck inflicted a penalty which he said would make France sweat drops of blood. Has not the day gone by when na tions delight in kicking the prostrate foe' Or Is there still left the bar hirous instinct which calls for the inflicting of endless misery on the vanquished? uu SPY SYSTEMS. (Washington Time6.) Likely enough, no government in the world attempts to maintain such extensive and elaborate espionage systems as are popularly supposed to be kept by Germany and Russia. For generations it has been an accepted tradition that Russia knew more about other countries than they knew about themselves; and recently Ger many's secret service has come to be regarded as quite the last word in efficiency. Perhaps these huge establishments are worth while, but it seems doubt ful. RusBia had a wonderful scheme of knowing all about her enemies; so wonderful, indeed, that it accumulated a complete and detailed stock of mis information and led her to think the war with Japan would be a midsum mer picnic and pretty oriental gar dens. Russia was sadly victimized by her spy system. Germany has done no better In the present war. Housemaids, butlers, governesses in British families of Im portance, turn out to have been Ger man spies; even the German govern ess in the Asqulth home, trusted for many years, was making regular re ports to Berlin! How useful they must have been! Between her and other spies, Berlin got tho firm opinion, first, that Britain couldn't fight; second, that she would not; third, that she was going to have civil wnr; fourth, thnt she did not care any morn for a "ccrap of paper' than Germany did; fifth, that India would revolt the mlnuU' the empire was in trouble; sixth that Canada would be grabbed by the United States at the first sign of Britain's preoccupation. On such advices as these turned in through the activities of her magnlfi--eni spy system, Germany went to war She would have been vastly bettor informed if she had never thought of spying.

Higher prices at Paris had a bullish effect today on the wheat market here. The stock of breadatuffs In France was said to be rapidly decreasing and reports of serious crop damage in the northern portion of that country were con firmed. After opening unchanged to 5-8e higher, the market made a material advance all around. Com rose with wheat. Buyers, however, were cautious owing to the fine weather which tended to favor the condition of the new crop and to make pastures good. The opening, which was the same as last night to 5-8c up, was followed by a moderate general advance. Strength developed In oats as well as in other cereals. Reports that there were bids frem Europe close to a working basis had some influ ence. Packers buying steadied the provi sion market. Most of the trade was In lard. Subsequently a reaction set in I wheat owing to a leading expert's bearish estimate of the domestic crop The close was weak, 1 5-8 to 1 7-8c under last night. Predictions that the com yield this season would exceed the government figures led afterwards to a decided downturn. The close was steady, at a decline of 1 to 1 l-8l l-4j net.
