Fifteen yeais after the Ilrst obseiv
iiiicc if Arbor Day In Nebraska, not liss
than 3.'i,Wi,tt) tiees and vines had been
planted in this once tneless teriltory.
Arbor Day sprang at once into popular
ity. One State after another fell Into
lino until to-day every suite In tho
rninn observes Its Arbor Day by tho
planting- of trees and vines. Tho date
varies in different States, but In many ot
them the month of April Is selected.
I-andowners are becoming moro nnd
moro Inteiespil In this holiday, as they
realize the importance to future genera
tions of preserving the tlecs. We find
many of them protecting young trees
and brush which formerly they destroyed
as worthless. The moral lnlluences of
Arbor Day are many. It cannot fall to
stimulate In tho minds of our youth 11
Imo for tho beautiful as levealed in
Nature, and a reverence for all growing
things trees, vines and llowers. It
awakens tho idea of civic Improvement,
and It bads ultimately to public better

(From the Springfield Republican.)
It Is almost an axiom tit history that
the motlp assigned for is never the real
motive. Thus in the present war Austria
professed that the murder of the arch
duke was the reason for attacking Ser
vla; til" suspicious take for the real rea
son tho desire for aggrandisement In tlio
Balkans. Russia professes a disinter
ested desire to pioteet a small Slav
state; the cynical sio in the move pan
Russian aggression. Cermuny pleads
self-defense against a conspiracy aimed
at Its destruction; skeptics suspect am
bition for world enplre. Fiance puts the
blame on Ocrmany; Oermans accuse
"revanche." Kngland makes Belgian
neutrality the casus belli: scoffers, In
cluding Bernard Shaw, call this but an
excise, and suggest that Oreat Bri
tain merely saw a good chance to de
stroy a commercial rival.
In suspecting the assigned motive wo
are usually justllled, hut it docs not fol
low that the real motive, or the domin
ating factor in the complex of motives
usually to lie found, Is a base motive,
or even less creditable than the assigned
motive. It may Indeed happen that
while tlio assigned motive Is a pietoxt
the dominant real motive which has been
kept secret Is almost lib ntleal. Is tills
possibly tho case with Kngland? A good
deal of skepticism has been shown
among neutral ns well as hostile ob
servers as to the bona ildes of the plea
of protecting Belgian neutrality. They
call this but a pietext but declare Eng
land would havg attacked Oermany even
if Belgian soli' had been left Inviolate.
It may be; the course of events has
made the question academic and wc can
only speculate ns to the binding force of
the entente and how far Oreat Biltaln
would have gone to save Franco from
But for the comprehension of motives
wo shall have to go further back than
that frenzied last week of July, wlnn
the British foreign office was doing Its
best to avert a war In which England
would almost Inovltnbly be Involved,
and It may bo that In tho entanglement
which made It difficult to stand aloof
Belgium played a laiger part than is
generally recognized. Tho nctunl casus
belli was the overt attack on Belgium
on August 3, but In considering the posi
tion of tho British government we must
not minimize the force of the chronic
ind periodically ncute nieiiacn tn Bel
gian neutrality In past years.
From tlio Oenunn point of view it has
been urged that tho discovery In the
nrchlves at Brussels of concerted mili
tary plain for thn defense of Belgium
Justified tho violation of Belgian neu
trality. But let us turn this argument
about, ns a historian is bound to do in
r.onsideilng all tho hypotheses, and see
how it affects tho English case. That
all was ready for a Oernmn Invasion of
Belgium Is not qulto clear, and it Is
plain that the arrangements had been
going on steadily for years, Including
tho building of strategic railways and
tie massing of troops anil material.
There was a standing raniire, revealed
by siuh material preparations nnd by
tho tepoits of the general staff, on this
point Ocrman militarism was cynically
frank It is qulto possible that the
British government had fuithor evidence
which it lias not chosen to mako public,
in regard to special preparations during
the crises of lOflfi and 11112. when the situ
ation seemed so alarming that secret
military arrangements weio made ilth
Belgium as well n,s with Franco. In
any case these documents which Dr.
Demburg has put forward as nullifying;
Belgian neutrality may from another
point of view be considered as evidence
that Oermany was even then strongly
suspected of having designs on Belfluni.
This suspicion may or may not have
been well founded at all events since
August 3 It has become Impossible for
Oerninny to repudiate it with scorn ns
an unjust aspersion on un honornbio
government to which a pledgo is a
pledge. But the question now Is not
whether the suspicion was well or Ill
founded, but what effect It must have
had on tho position of tho British gov
ernment. II. W. Masslnghiim, n writer
In the Atlantic Monthly for January,
thinks that the government made
n mistake in not taking the public Into
Its confidence, as to tho seriousness of
the menace to Belgium. Instead It con
fined Its case to tho question of naval
