Bulgaria, though sihe has mobilized her forces, is no long
er the key to the situation on the Balkans. Tihe centre of dif
ficulties is shifted from Sofia to Athens, where the Balkan
problem could find a solution from point of view of the Allies.
Should Bulgaria attack Serbia and thus join the war on the
side of the central powers, the only Balkan power in a posi
tion to paralyze Bulgaria's military activities would be Greece.
In addition Greece could open its Salonico port for the land
ing of allied troops, destined to help Serbia, as well as Greece.
Five or six allied aimy corps in addition to the Greekarjny
could easily overwhelm the Bulgarians and eliminate them
as a military factor.
Sir Edward Grey also hinted that such a turn could be tak
en, should Bulgaria dare to join the Teutonic allies. But
while Sir Edward Grey threatened Bulgaria with an attack
from the rear and thus warned her to keep quiet, an official
statement from Athens and Sofia declares that Greece, in case
of Bulgaria'^ entering the war, woud oppose a policy fore
shadowed by Sir Edward Grey.
This statement is the most surprising turn in the Balkan
crisis during the last twt weeks, because it was supposed that
Greece, already in sympathy with the Allies, would join them,
should Bulgaria take a hostile attitude towards Serbia. This
surprising turn has its explanation in the fact that Greece,
though morally sympathizing with the Allie, can, under no
circumstances make common cause with them, because of It
aly's partnership to the Entente.
The Italians are holding twelve Aegian islands taken from
the Turks during the Tripoli war. The Greeks have tried
again and again to get these islands from Italy, because they
are purely Greek, but in vain, and there is no prospect today
that Italy will ever hand over these islands to Greece. Italy
has great plans to carry out in Asia Minor and needs these
islands as abase for future military and political enterprises.
The old dream of a Greek empire comprising the whole
Greek population in Greece, Albania, Asia Minor and all the
Aegian islands is thus doomed to remain a dream only, be
cause in addition to Italy's holding the twelve islands, she
also plans to occupy those parts of Asia Minor that are inhab
ited also by Greeks. Furthermore, Italy hr.s al?o turned to
become a competitor of Greece in Albania and the well known
Gfreco Albanian leader, M. Zagrofas, has pronounced the
Italians asthe arch enemies of his fellow countrymen.
If Greece should join the war, and if the Allies should win,
she would not get the compensation she is claiming because
England and France could not force Italy to give up the is'
lands, and could not drive her out of Albania. In face, Greece
would not gain anything by joining the war, because of Italy's
competition, and in aiding the Allies she would lose all her fu
ture possibilities. This explains wihy Greece, though morally
in sympathy with the Allies, not only cannot join them, but
must do everything to prevent their emerging victoriously
from the war.
Neutrality has some contradictory moods. For example,
the shipment of arms was excused on the ground that Ger
many alone being prepared for war an embargo on munitions
could be interpreted as of direct assistance to German mili
tarism. At the same time noticing was dome against the shut
ting off of food supplies for the civil population of Germany
though such failure was admitted to be of direct assistance to
the Allies.-'' "Now today the great war loan is excused rather
cynically on the ground that tVe Allies need money to buy
food stuffs. In other words, when Germany wanted food it
could not get it, but money is given to England and France to
buy food.
Ones more is America's cotton trade hit hard. The wiping
out of the American merchant fleets on the Pacific is all but
complete, only one steamship remaining to carry the Ameri
can flag in those waters. And now, with American exports
to Asia totalling $186,739,999 last year, this great carrying
business is completely in the Hands of t|j^v Origntals^

in the most rabid pro-Teutonic circles is there any difference
of opinion on this point.

"The manufacturer who
employes children of 14 or 15
dees not benefit himself be
cause chilren are not good
workers he does not benefit
the community because he
harms the child, and it is the
good of the community, not
the individual manufacturer,
that must be considered in this
question of child labor.
"I never employ children
under 16 if I can get older
workers, because I consider
the years between 14 and 16
the most impressionable ones
of a child's life and I know
that the factory influence is a
bad one, no matter how care
ful the employer may be.
Those years should be spent in
school and in the open, not in
the factory where physical,
mental moral and financial
growth is stunted. If we must
have men with a college ex
ucation in the executive posi
tions, it is equally necessary to
lave a proportionate amount
of training throughout the en
tire force. I find it extreme"
Iy hard to get intelligent girls
for responsible positions. I
have tried to train them but
their lack of education makes
it impossible for them to go
beyond a certain point.
"It is true, of course, that
poverty makes it necessary for
some children to go to work
before they are 16. I think it
might be advisable to permit
exceptions to the 16-year lim
it for such children who are
over 14 and are declared phys
ically fit for work by a physi
cian. Cases, of actual poverty
are not very numerous, how
ever. Many children are sent
to work because their parents
are not poor, but avaricious."

Philadelphia, Oct. 14.—Af
ter having two strikes called
on him in the ninth inning,
with one out, Hooper, the Red
Sox right fielder, hit a groove
ball to the center field stands
for a home run and the score
that gave the Boston Ameri
cans the world's championship
of 1915.
The Phillies were still due a
turn at bat, but there was not
a soul among the more than
20,000 crowded in the park
wjho did not know that the
series was over and that the
Boston Red Sox had won an
other championship of the
world—four games to one.
Philadelphia did not get a man
to first in the ninth inning.
Desperate Battle.
This last game of the series
was a battle from the jump
with the issue ever in the bal
ance. Twice it seemed that
Philadelphia had a winning
margin, but twice the Red S6x
hammered their way to the
front. Piling up three runs in
the eighth and ninth innings,
they got the decision 5 to 4.
It was a batting bee in which
the Phillies got an early start.
Boston, however, soon found
the ball, and before the end of
the game had placed three
home runs in the center field
stands. Hooper got two of the
homers and Lewis the third.
Luderus got the only home
run for Philadelphia when in
the fourth inning he sent
high one over the right field
wall. This was the end of the
scoring for the Phillies, for in
the last five innings there was
never a threat of Philadelphia
