JULY 4JL917. Eighty-Eighth Day of America in the War. WAR FOR BROTHERHOOD. As President Benton, in his baccalaure ate sermon to the graduating class of the University of Vermnot ,said : "The trans cendent issue of the war is brotherhood." "In America," he adds, "thus far, individ ualism with its self-sufficiency and self complacency, has gone to the limit of its possibilities. We are longing to be social ized, and if this sanguinary conflict answers that longing, and through us enables that national selfishness shall be blotted out, it will be worth all it may cost us in blood and treasure." By national selfishness, President Ben ton means not the contemptible vice in its more common manifestations our Red Cross contribution, our alleviation of Europe's suffering of the past three years gives the he to that but he means, rather. cents a ton, and there can be only one com mission charged. That is to say, the con sumer will get his coal for the cost at the mine, plus transportation plus twenty-five cents a ton handling charges in the retail trade extra, of course. The rate of $3 at the mine was established in the conference, though Baker says it will have to be lower yet. Anthracite dealers, though they are not included in the above arrangement, have expressed a willingness to take similar action. It is the least that can be expected of them, and it is the least that can be de manded of other industries as well, notably the food. Five per cent advance in the living costs last month! Twenty-nine per cent in the past year! Forty or fifty in the past five! How much of it is justified? How much is due to the manipulations, selling the same goods back and forth, a new profit added to each sale? Let the dealers lay their trade secrets, cost prices, and other information on the table, as the coal men did, in order that their profits, too, may be standardized. Let a limit be put on the commission. While the people are giving their flesh and blood, while they are denying them selves that they may contribute to the cause abroad, they must be protected from the gouge at home. THE SCRATCH PAD By THOMAS EWING DABNEY. KEEP IT UNTARNISHED, MY BOY THIS IS YOUR WAR! German spies are not necessarily the most dangerous enemies of the United States. They may blow up a bridge or fac tory here and there. They may send valu able information to Berlin. But the harm they can do all of them together isn't to be compared with the harm done by some American citizens who would poison the public mind in the interest of the Prussian kaiser. Some of this poisoning is shrewdly done. That is necessary. Openly lending aid and comfort to the enemy isn't safe. In war time that's treason. So far no Mexican commission has come to the United States. Hindenberg may now console him self with the thought that there is a beer shortage in Paris Strange as it mav seem, the wel ding of Mr- rnd Mrs. Noyes in St Louis was a vry quiet affair. Judging by the Red Cress returns, there are more conscientious objec tors in Tensncca than we deemed possible. Europe has been canning kings at a great rate, and now the United States is applying the principle to other and more useful beets. Inasmuch as the military draft is to be made by that method, we hope that Uncle Sr.m will get the number of every member of the Curbstcne Cadets. Fifty American aviators have reached the aeronautic training base in Europe, and we are reliably in formed that they found the place Nice- We have often envied the fluent ease with which the pararraphers trlk about tli'i one-piece bathing suit, but whenever we see one, we are stricken speechless. New Orleans policemen found four teen lottery plays on cigarette pa per, hidden under a garter, and wo hasten to add that the garter was of the Boston variety and worn by a man So far Nick Romanoff has not ac cepted that job in the movies, r-nd we don't know when we will r,ee his whiskers disguised rs a minor digging for-eold in the thirst ridden desert in order to lift the mortgr.g-s back home, or stopping custard pies.

That wre should overcome this apthy is as great a triumph for the principles of brotherhood as that we should take up arms for the defence of weaker nations. With millions of men from every part of the world fraternizing, and toiling and suffering together for a common cause, surely the international understanding will be clearer, the humanity tics will be stronger than ever before. Brotherhood, mutual dependence of men upon each other, of nations upon each each other that is the trend of civiliza- to advocate a large armv. vet at the same time cleverlv convev the impression to von that Uncle Sain is fighting John Bull's bat tle and not yours. All the same it helps the kaiser's cause in this country for it makes naturally patri otic American citizens of Irish descent or sympathy lukewarm to the cnuse of us and our allies. And that's its real purpose! This isn't England's war! It isn't France's war! We re fighting just as much t defend liberty in America as we are to defend lib erty anywhere else on earth from the ag gression of Prussianism. So it's our war your war! And French, British.

And it s more than a war to make the world safe for democracv. It's a war the war is not for brotherhood, the evil forces would be on our own shores. It was brotherhood that caused Belgium to throw herself in the way of the German juggernaut, knowing she would be crushed, but hoping to stay the progress that France might have time to prepare. It was brotherhood that caused Russia to begin her attack unprepared, to reduce the pressure on France. It was brotherhood that sent England into the war to relieve oppression and stop a monstrous thing. Now that our allies are in danger, it is brotherhood that sends the American flag across the water to do battle for humanity a brotherhood that is fighting to free the German people themselves from the tyranny under which they suffer and by which the rest of the world is threatened. THE SAVING IN COAL. An illustration of how prices can be loxveied when the comrollinr- interests see that the government is thoroughly in earn est, was furnished by the recent "agree ment, of four hundred coal operators where by bituminous coal at all mines east of the Mississippi river has been cut from one to five debars a ton. with a further cut of rh'ty cents for the government. In a word, profits are stndardized. even as wages and railroad rates are standardized an opera tion that lops one hundred and eighty mil lion dollars from the operators' profits, with an even greater saving for the people, for under the new arrngement, jobbers, brokers, retailers and commission men are limited to a commission of twenty-five i i-ii i women ana cnuarcn ncre in our own America the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It isn't Wilson's war. It isn't Wall street's war. It isn't a capitalistic or a labor war. It's our war, your war. every right thinking American's war. And your liberty and the liberty of your children and your children's children won't be safe until this war is won and kaiserism is destroyed.
