MAYOR CAKSON AND THE WAR CHEST. For South Ind to build or t-iuii) a municipal hos pital with funds wholly or partially taken from the War Chet treasury would be not only the height of impropriety, but a despicable trick of downrmht un patriotlsm "slacking" of a shameful type. Mayor Carson's plan, t; coolly announced, to ask for 110,000 for that purpose is m astounding that we prefer to believe that in putting it forth he acted as a creature of impulse. It is not clear whether any formal request has yet ten lodged with tho directors at the War Chest. If that body should show a disposition to aquiesce the situation would be alarming. Indeed. I3ut have turlicient faith in the essential sound ness of national feeling among the donors of this large fund to venture the prediction that any such raid as Mayor Carson contemplates wM meet with the deter mined and united opposition of a patriotic public opinion, an opinion .-o pronountcci that the directors would not dare ignore it. We grant the need of a municipal hospital. Frequent cases have been brought to public attention in which the lack of such an institution has proved to be highly embarassing. Inconvenient and actually menacing. Hut the necessity is not the issue. No matter how serious the need may be, or how urgent, there is neither logic nor. sophistry to Justify the spoliation of this fund, donated primarily for the conifort and relief of the foldiers and villors of the United States. The establishment of a municipal hospital is a war measure, sas Mayor Carson. The wondering public, knowing what comprehensive plans are in progress under government auspices for convalescent hospitals and "reconstruction" stations, asks why and the mayor hastens to explain. United states army surgeons, he points out, require the repression and isolation of cases of certain com municable diseases as a measure of protection for sol diers and sailors tn the city on furlough. It is an eloquent commentary on Mayor Carson's attitude and policy toward the evils in which these diseaseH have their roots that he considers such repres sive measures to be so extraordinary as to constitute a WAK MEASURE! Those loal institutions of social service wh'ch are to share In the War Chest fund do so largely because of expediency. It was deemed advisable to conduct one campaign for both local and -war relief work. What ever may hae been the wisdom of this combination there is no question f this fact; the donors knew that local charities were to be included in the distribu tion. Hut they did not know, and had no intimation, that the city would ask fr . hospital out of the fund. Theirs is not only the right, therefore, but the duty, to challenge any such misappropriation. The Carson administration, holding the reins as it does In matters invohlng the municipal treasury, has so nearly bankrupted the track elevation fund that It is a fruitless held for further raids. Something like $13,000 remains of what orce was $190.000. When, therefore, the mayor and his counsellors turn a covetous ee upon the War Chest they need to be reminded, and forcibly, that this was not created to ?V1 deficit ncies in the municipal treasury. Nor w as it accumulated t build nomumrnts for Mr. Carson, his colleagues, or the r -;u! b an party. !5oth the mayor and the secretary of his board of health hae sons in the nation s service. If Mr. Carson and Dr. Kreyermutli are r.ot ashamed to take for municipal uses thse means which have been gien to provide such comforts and ronfnier.c. .is money can procure the tichtin: man. then it is for South Tend, throuch the directorate of its War Chest, to ad minister $uch a jolt as will bring them to their sense. is (.kium.wy sixri iti; i m:it -puaci; iikivkv? ( riiiLul'-lptiia Public ledger.) Are we quite iure that we understand Germany? me .if our lavorite "indoor sports" is explaining Oernnny to each olh'r. We have collected a most, in tertstir.ir ariety of theories as to what Germany really wants and v.hal she is ready to do to get it. From the very outset the western allies have been inclined to Hatter themselves with the most comforting theory that Germany wa mortally afraid of them; that all her hopes of gain were pinned upon the east, and that ah would be only too glad at any time to buy the west off with generous concessions. One by-product of this theory is that we arc not at all surprised to catch sight i pon tht horizon of num erous Get man "peace drives." directed at the western allies. We are tc have anything we like to name if we will only abandon distraught Russia, and disarmed ILou mania and "the gorgeous east," far and near, to tlvj German wolveo. Of course, we hae no intention of succumbing to the temptation. We will not desert the helpless Russian people who have been showing us so strikingly how to make democracy unsafe for every body. We will light on "for principle" though we con fess to misgivings as to an equal resolution on the part of certain elements among our friends. We will not buy our own escape from the German menace at the ex pense of our temporarily helpk-ss brethren in the east. Rut are we quite sure that it is for sale? Let us look a little more closely at these German ges tures of compromise and conciliation toward the west. When do they usually appear? Well, one has just been seen, and it occurred at a moment when the slaughter of German soldiers on the .western front had reached appalling proportions, and yet the high command had to ask the German people to stand steady and let the terrible ma.-.sacre continue. We may well imagine that the morale of the German civilian world wavered. "What is it all for?' they mijht very humanly ask. In spite of boasted German victories whose importance it is idle to discount, the German socialists that baro meter of home opinion shuddered openly at the butcher's bill and rorndly declared that no expansion in Russia could possibly be worth it. Then came the latest German "peace drive."' That is. Germany was unofficially reported to have oftered, un officially, very favorable terms to the western allies which the western allies at once rejected. "There!" says the German military party to their mourning peo ple, "they won't make peace with us. no matter what we offer. They wont to drive us over the Rhine and dictate peace from Potsdam as we did from Versailles. We must fight on in self-defense, and a vigorous offen sive is the best defensive." Dt.esn't this oggest a possibility that these peace drives may be meant for home consumption? They invariably come at a moment when the morale of the German people needs stiffening. Does a long winter give the German firesides time to count their dead and then count their living a "peace kite" goes gayly up. Does doubt creep into the German mind as to the wis dom cf some new c?:pansion of Prussian imperialistic poli:y, such as the systematic crushing of Serbia or the ruthless dismemberment of Russia a peace offer i made to the west by some shady road of rumor and German opinion is again steadied by the indignant re fusals It elicits. Austria grows hungry and rebellious. C:ternin makes a peace speech, and there is nothing left to rebel against. Rut could tho western allies get pe'tce on these sug gested terms if they were foolish enough to snatch at the bait? They could doubtless get peace negotiations. Ger many would be very willing to accept an armistice on her western front, with her armies in possession of Belgium and the industrial regions of northern France with the iron mines, the coal mines and the factories still working for the Fatherland; with no military ad vantage gained during the war abandoned while she Fllently penetrated, permeated and prepared to exploit porous and amorphous Russia. If she could persuade the west to mark time while she entrenched herself In the east by peaceful police methods, there is no reason, as Lord Robert Cecil said the other day. why she should not then tight the whole world forever. This the west could get at any time a magnificent opportunity to commit suicide. Rut peace on tolerable terms Is a horse of another color.

Women officials of the natioral council of defense have taken steps to safeguard the women workers throughout the country. They have studied, in connec tion with sociological experts, the condition of he. working woman in Europe and their recommendations for thN country are timely as wtll as highly important. A recent bulletin makes the argument that women who are employtd in industrial plants and in other work ordinarily done by men should not be required to work loneer than eight hours, and the Saturday half holiday is declared to be "an absolute essential for women un der all conditions." Adequate meal and rest periods, with Sunday off as a day of complete relaxation. al30 are considered imperative. It is claimed that investi gations show loss of efficiency and a ureat increase in sickness where longer hours were tried for working women in England. All of these claims are sound and there is no reason why the women who engage in industrial work should not have every protection and every chance for relaxa tion. Rut the general program for women omits two tl.i;es the largest. It does not include the town and city housewife and it makes no mention of the farm er's wife. These women rise early and prepare break fast. Their mornings are full of work that requires them to be on their feet most of the time. Many of them pre pare their heavy meal at noor,', while others wait until evening for dinner. No matter when the hie meal served. It means work and plenty of it. If there are children in the hou:?ehold the daily tasks are increase 1 just so much. Thousands and thousands of these women have no chance to sit down for a moment's rest until late at nicht. They work day after day with no thought of a Saturdav afternoon half-holiday, and with Sunday usually a day v. hen the head of the house demands something extra to eat. An eight-hour working day would seem to s ich v omen like a vacation.

The friends of the late Prince Alexander of Rattenberg, who for u short time was prince of Bulgaria, have been painfully impressed by an article which appeared about him in a New York newspaper, in which he was accused of having jilted the Princess Vic toria of Prussia, tht sister of the kaiser, on the eve of their marriage, which always, accord ing to that ar ticle, was to have been cele brated at Wind sor, under the auspices of Queen Victoria. l-TirKxaUiHWi. Nothing even a p p r o a c hing this story ever took place, and the romance, for there was one of the Bulgarian ruler with the second daughter of the Emperor Frederick and of his consort the Princess Royal of Great Britain and Ireland, was absolutely different from the fantastic tale to which I have just referred. The story is as follows; In 1S85, Prince Alexander of Bulgaria met. not at Windsor, hut at Darmstadt, the Princess Victoria. The young persons, who were both pleasant and attractive, fell in love with each other, and the then German crown princess, who was always in favor of marriage of affection, looked with most favoraMe eyes on this idyll, for it could hardly be called any thing else. At that time, the posi tion of Prince Alexander was al ready precarious, and his relations with Russia and the Czar Alexander III were anything but cordial. A marriage with a Prussian princess, apart from any other consideration, would have meant a great deal for him. and it was but natural that he should have ardently wished for it. Bi-marck Interferes. But at this juncture Prince Bis marck for whom it was a matter of paramount importance to k?ep upon good terms with Russia and with the czar, interfered, and persuaded the (dd Emperor William to refuse his consent to the match, in spite of the tears of the Princess Victoria, who threw herself at his feet sev eral times to try to obtain his per mission to be wedded to the man who had won her heart. The kai ser proved obdurate, and told his granddaughter that he would never expose a prinress of his house to all the dangers and uncertainties that such a marriage would have pre sented. There was nothing left to do but to submit, but neither the young girl nor Prince Alexander gave up the hope that in time they would be able to overcome the obstacles which stood in their way. and to t:ke each other for better or for worse. When the old William I died, and the father of the Princess Victoria had ascended the throne under the name of Frederick III, she began ov.ee more to talk about her lover, who in the meanwhile had lost his throne, and was living part of the year in Darmstadt. and part in Gratz in Austria, awaiting better times. The emperor was a most tender father, and he gave the con sent "vhich was craved, much to the joy of the young people, and to that of the Empress Victoria, who had been from the very beginning In favor of the match. Politics, how ever, interfered once more, and Prince Bismarck played for the sec ond time the part of the trouble maker. He wrote a long report to the emperor, in which he exposed all the grave inconveniences which the marriage of his daughter with the deposed Bulgarian sovereign would present, and especially touched up on the feelings of the czar, who would most certainly see in it a de fiance leveled at himself, because it was very welt known that he nour ished feelings of absolute distrust and even contempt for the person ality of Prince Alexander. There took place terrible scenes at the royal palace of Charlyttenburff, where the sick sovereign was residing-, and at last the empress wrote to her mother. Queen Victoria, ask ing the latter to come to her rescue and to that of poor little "Princess Vicky," as she was called in her family circle. Queen Victoria mul Bismarck. . The queen, who had already an nounced her visit, arrived in Berlin perhaps u day or two earlier than she would have done otherwise, and she was instantly appealed to, not only by the emperor and empress, but also by the princess, together with Prince Alexander, who had al so arrived in the German capital, and also by Prince Bismarck, who begged the English sovereign to award him an audience for the pur pose of explaining his views upon the matter that was causing so much trouble everywhere, and poisoning the last days which the dying Em peror Frederick had still to spend on earth. Of course, the queen received the great minister, and after they had had a conversation, which to the surprise of everybody lasted something like two hours, the riueen told her daughter and granddaugh ter that they had better not think any more of Prince Alexander of Battenberg-, because a marriage with him would mean serious trou ble in regard to foreign politics, and entirely alienate Russia from Ger many, and perhaps even from Eng land. It was her firm attitude in this question which won the day, and the prince and princess parted, never to see each other in this world again. The princess was the first who consoled herself, or at least who al lowed herself to be persuaded into marrying Prince Adolphus of Schaumburg-LIppe. who though not at a'l an attractive man. was an ex cellent match, on account of his large fortune and great position. The couple took up their abode In Bonn, op the Rhine, where they built for themselves a sort of fairy palace In the English taste, and with a sprink ling of Tudor architecture to add to it beauty. They had no children, but this did not prevent them from getting along in a humdrum kind of way, and of being moderately happy until the death of the prince, which occurred something like two years ago. The Prince's Life. As for Prince Alexander of Bat tenberg, he married, as everybody knows, a pretty actress to whom he remained devoted until his death, at an age when nobody could have ex pected it. He had received ttfter hi abdication, from his cousin the, grand duke of Hesse, the title of Count of Hartenau, and he was al lowed by special decree to give it to his wife and to his children. It seems that he never forgot the Princess Victoria . and that before he died he asked his brother. Prince Henry of Rattenberg, the husband of Princess Beatrice of Great Brit ain, to give her a letter together with her portrait, which he said that he had carried on his heart ever since the cruel exigencies of political reasons had parted him from the woman to whom his heart had been so entirely given. Prince Henry acquitted himself of his mission, and he related aft- band edge. Mrs. Michigan St. Advt.
