Ttidcrc Elbert Gary recently delivered an
address bearing upon the war and present
conditions in this and foreigin countries,
which is worthy the consideration of the
American people as a whole, without re
gard to party affiliations of any kind.
Judge Gary believes that the people of
this country are not fully awake to the
menace of war and among other things has
:his to say: "In addition to what the
enemy has constructed and will improve
for physical contest, there has been up a
system of intrigue, espionage, poisoning of
the human' mind, the distribution an ap
plication or use of germs of disease and
physical impairment. Also agitation
tending to discredit and defy the law
and to create trouble between employe and
employer, and with all this goes the malig
nant and unconscionable effort to destroy
property and life by fire or poison or other
means and to impede and interrupt the
wheels of industry. This is increasing and
will continue to increase. And the Prus
sians have perfected a centralized, com
prehensive, powerful business organization
which, considering its size and ramifica
tions has never been approached.
Their program boldly contemplates the
subjugation of various nationalities sepa
rately, either by force of arms or other
means. It is probable that the Russian rev
olution and its consequences were planned
,-Vn Germany and have been financed and di
eted by German money and brains.
She 'is now endeavoring to "Russianize"
several other countries. .
A war policy which recognizes no God,
except by pretence, no law, no justice, no
mercy, nothing but the right which brute
- force commands has a decided advantage,
'physically, over those whose principles are
humane, honorable. Christain. These an
tjtheses are represented by opposing mili
tary forces of the pending struggle.
We are appalled, though we are not
stunned by these conditions; our dctcrm
ination os unshaken, our teeth arc set. We
lave been forced into the war an we arc
fighting in self-defense. So far as we are
concerned it is a combat between Prussian
ism and Amricanisni. between might and
right. Considered by themselves, the ex
isting conditions are not pleasant; they are
dangerous but not desperate: they compel
one to fear that Americans are confronted
by a long and ruinous war, destructive of
life and limb and of mental and
moral and physical health, devastation of
property and diminution of wealth.
This picture of war conditions, as pre
sented, is not pleasant to look upon, but it
is not exaggerated, and it stares us in the
face. We have been slow and stupid or at
least indifferent. We have not realized and
donot realize the full extent of the dangers
that threaten us, and in this respect there
is ttlc difference between the citizens of
the various parts of the United States or
of any locality.

a board, which declared that President
wnson nad ruled thus on the question
months ago. '
A universal seven hour day during the
period of war, instead of present suspen
sion of industries by the fuel administra
tion to conserve coal and relieve railroad
congestion has been suggested by Samuel
Gompers, president of the American Feder
ation of Labor. Mr. Gompers speech,
which was delivered to the miners in can
vention in Indianapolis, is regarded as
labor's message to the country, and it is
significant that the labor leader prefaced
his suggestion with a defense of those in
high governmental station, declaring that
the officials were prompted by patriotic
purposes to win the war and that the trans
ition from peace to wai without making
some mistakes was impossible.
Among other things, Gompers said: "I
am going to obey like a soldier of America
You have got to be either for autocracy
democracy. Labor must make victory
sure for democracy."
1m nk Mo'ison, seci.-tary of the Fed
eration of Labor was quoted as having said,
when interviewed in regard to the drastic
fuel order: 'It looks to me as though it was
far better for the workers to lose five days
wages than freeze to death, and the latter
condiion threatens them, if the fuel is not
The five days have passed. The fuel situ
ation is improving. It is notable that
throughout the five days, when the order
closing industries was in effect, that those
who were most nearly effected, the labor
ing people, were most loyal to the govern
ment. President Wilson is and has always has
been a friend of the people. Not
pretending to what is not sincere and play
ing to the galleries, but in that broad
sense which has given him insight into
their needs, and in so far as is in his power,
to act as the representative of those who
placed him in the position he occupies with
such distinction.
The people of the United States, are not
unmindful of this. The fact that President
Wilson approved Garfield's plan, after a
consultation of the president and the secre
taries of the army and navy, was sufficient
for the people who trusted him.
In effect, the people have said: "My
country, right or wrong." Whether mis
taken or not, the order went forth and was
obeyed. And so far, there is no indication
of any lasting ill effects.
One thing the people of the United States
must make up their minds to, and that is in
the conduct of this war. mistakes' will be
made, for mistakes are made by all na
tions. France, England and Italy have
made mistakes. Hut fewer mistakes will
have been made, when victory has been
won, italic people of the United States will
be true to the colors.
For the men in the field and in the
trenches are not the only ones to protect
the honor of Old Glory. Xo less does the
obligation , rest upon the civilian, whose
duty i to obey without question, just as is
the duty of the soldier on the battle line.
That the people of the United States are
prepared to obey, that they are more than
willing to do their part, has been evidenced
by the loyalty with which they responded
to the nation's demand of industry.
The people know that the president may
be trusted. Where he gives an order, they
may depend that back of the order is con
sieration for the people as a whole.
"As a master of fact, the present issue is
above all law. The protection of its citi
zens and the preservation of their lives and
their health is the first requisite of the government."

In many respects relief of civilian
suffering presents graver and more
difficult problems than relief of
(physical suffering on the battle
fronts, for it lurks in tenements,
down shaded, narrow, and crooked
streets, in country and city, every
where, never stalking abroad like its
twin evil, but defying discovery, and
flourishing in darkness.
Of the two relief works, it would
be difficult to estimate which is of
greater importance. Certainly there
is heavy responsibility in both. If
for no other than humane motives
the torture, the physical agony of
war must be stopped. But at the
outset nations f the world realized
that far greater elements than as
suaging pain are involved in rebuild
ing the: broken bodies mangled in the
war machine. Uoon those who
fight, rests to a great degree, thei

Emphatic denial of the statement pub

friction has developed between the men of
the Kritish and the American navies has
been made by naval officers who have ar
rived at American port:
One of the officers said: T have a fleet
of five destroyers and five British shop:;
and there has not been the slightest feeling
when orcrs were given to the Britishers, and
the same prevails when we have been de
tailed to British units. Our unified thought
has been to run down and destroy the Ger
man submarine. The elimination of the
submarine depends entirely upon the num
ber of destroyers we can send over there.
"If we can send enough destroyers we
can keep them under and they'll never jiae
to the surface again. Americans should be
told that their watchword is "hurry." Eng

are. To wind them up we need to do the
