Dr. Jovnes >Vrites of Hermany Alter
the War.
To the Editor of The itate:
What is to be the end of the European
war. and when? What its imme
diate result ami its remoter consei
quenees? These questions it requires
a wiser man than 1 am to answer, But
I may at least venture to prophecy
some things which will not happen;
and this I am induced to do by frequent
expressions, both in private iif*
and in the public press, which 1 believe
to be erroneous, and founded on
entire misconceptions of German
character and conditions. 1 venture
to prophecy:
1. Whatever may happen to Germany,
the war will not result in the
downfall of the Hohuizullern dynasty.
The "divine right" by which this
dynasty claims to rule is also the
faith of the German people, and their
dpvnfirvn fn thp thrrmp a sp^t
ed sentiment, a faith, a passion,
which lies outside or all logic and an
argument, and of which, in our public
life, we have no example nor com.
In the year 1848 the Prussian king,
Frederic William IV, was confronted
in his capital by the. seemingly victorious
forces of revolution. In his
zeal tn avnirl armpH hp vipld
ed one after another of the royal pre\
Togatives. But when it was demanded
that the title of "king by the grac9
of God" should be abolished or amended
ihe firmly refused. "If," said he,
"I am not king by the grace of God,
then I have no right to reign at all.'
This is today the claim of his succes-1
eors, and this, I believe, is still the
laifch of the German people; so that
"whatever may befall Germany will be

2. A kindred error is that defeat in
war may cause Germany to become
republican or democratic. Why should
such result follow? The German government
today is sound, strong, ?nKe-fltenert
benevolent T.ohnr i? there
aeoure, property is protected, old age
and poverty are -wisely cared lor.
Crimes against life or ^property are
few; education is more general and
more thorough than anywhere else. If
a "despotism," Germany is certainly
a "benevolent" despotism, and German
life is full of privileges and
charms never to be forgotten?witness
the affectionate patriotism, in our own !
country, even of the voluntary exiles I
from the fatherland?a most signm

counter temptation is offered j
l>y onr own country, with its political
commotions, its party feuds, its "malefaction
of great wealth/* its labor
Btrikes, its uncared for poverty, its!
lLomicides, its lynchings, its increas- j
N ing divorces, its social and political
instability? No- I feel sure that
whatever the result of this war tne
C:-man people will still be left united,
patriotic, proudly devoted to their
own social order and form of government;
and they will still lead thfe
"world in education, science and industry.
This is ^written with some personal
knowledge of German life; and it is
mot intended to indicate any sympa
tiiy, for or against Germany, at the
^present time. Yet I have regretted to
see how greatly some of our people
even of my own friends, misunderstand

JFlames Bage Fiercely Among: Ruins
of Black Tom and Shrapnel Shells

New York, July 31.?Fire broke out ;
tonight in the ruins on Black Tom <
island, where Sunday's ammunition j
explosion occurred, and half the fire j
department of Jersey City with fire
ffcoats from New York and New Jersey
fought the flames, which centered
about the pier where large quantities
of shrapnel and shells were stored.
Shells exploded in an almost continuous

Three officers of corporations doing
business on the island were under
arrest tonight and a warrant was out

der way at Jersey City for a joint
federal. State, county and municipal
disaster which killed at least three
men, injured scores and caused approximately
$20,000,000 property
The theory that the lire which
caused the disastrous explosion started
on a munitions barge, tied up at
the island, was combated late today
by Robert S. Hudspeth, prosecutor
for Hudson county, and Theodore B.
Johnson. president o* the Johnson '
Lighterage company, owner o:" the
munition barge. Both declared the
! lire originated in two Lehigh Valley
! !
railrud 1'reight cars iauen with ex-'
' plosives.
Johnson, who was arrested on a
; wan ant cnargmg munslaugut.er. as
| were Albert M. Hickman. Black Tom
a.iient of the Lehigh Valley, and Alexander
Davidson, superintendent of the
National Storage company, denied all
responsibility for the conflagration.
He intimated that the fire was of in
cen-aiary origin.
Prosecutor H:\ispertii corroborated
Johnson's story. He said he had obtained
an affidavit from the commander
of the Tug Geneva which gave a
| comprehensive story of the disaster.
"According to the affidavit and other
evidence," said the prosecutor, "'the
tire started two hours before the;
Johnson barge was destroyed and it,
was not this barge that caused the!
great explosion. The tire spread rroni
i freight cars to warehouses and the;
barge. The captain of the Geneva j
? 1
was towing away anotner barge, said
to have been loaded with a tremen j <
douslv high explosive, acting upoii
j orders of a Lehigh Valley official. f
I when the barge, which had shown no |
sign of being afire, exploded. This j
j was the first explosion and the ont> :
j that was most severe."
Later in the day a warrant was is!
sued for the arrest on a charge of "
I manslaughter of Edmund L. Mackeni
zie of Plainfield, N. J., president of '
the National Storage company, whose
plant on Black Tom was destroyed.
Plate glass insurance underwriters
voted at a meeting Ihere today to replace
at once all windows shattered
by the explosion. It is estimated that

Two United States Soldiers Fall
In Clash With Bandits Near

San Antonio, July 31.?Carranra

official report from Brig. Gen. Bell,
Jr., at El Paso, to Major Gen. Funston
tonight. The incident marked
the first time Carranza troops have
cooperated in pursuit of bandits on
American soil. 1
After the bandits foad been suirounded
in a ranch -house on the
American side of the Rio Grande ]
River and an American customs guard
had been killed, another customs
i guard, named Beane, ran down to the j
river bank and called to a detachment
of Carranza soldiers on the Mexican
side to come over and assist the |
'American troops. r
i A captain and eight soldiers responded.
They joljied in the fighting, 1
; which soon became general. Imow. i
! the report says, the bandits fled the t
r.nnch house and retreated over the 1
river, leaving behind four dead. Americans
Lost Two.
i The American dead numbered two, ]
Private John Twoney, F. Troop, 8th j j

Wood, customs guard. Sergt Lewis!
Thompson, F. Troop, 8th United States |
cavalry, was seriously wounded. He :
was made the target of three bullets, i
The report to Gen. Funston does not
make clear the manner in which the
fight, which took plaofc about 1:301
a. m., began, nor does it indicate the j
object of the bandits in crossing to !
the American side. Gen. Funston said j
it was possible, however, that the j
bandits, when surprised by the Amer- j
I *
icans. were attempting to escape from \
the Carranza troops, who later en- j

The American force consisted of!
eight men under command of Sergt.
Thompson, two hospital corps men
and the two customs guards. They i
speedily surrounded the Mexicans in !
the ranch house. Woods was the
first to flail, laid low by a bandit who
had slipped outside to aim at him. A
moment later, one of the hospital j
corps men shot down the bandit.
It was at this point that Beane sum-!
moued the Carranza soldiers. Brisk
: firing followed for a time. Then quiet
reigned in the ranch house. A cau- .
tious investigation disclosed threj 1
more dead bandits inside its w..;lls. .
