Fire at such a range has long been a topic of popular interest as a possibility. It is now a fact. Traveling sw ifter than a rifle ball, J a shot fired at such range is nearly two minutes on its way. At 45 de grees elevation it rises more than two miles above the loftiest mountain, higher than man can mount in a bal loon and live, before It begins to de scend. , The great guns of warships cannot be elevated more than 15 degrees. This one reason why the Allies land ed armies at the Dardanelles. Plung ing fire from batteries at closer range should be more effective against Turkish forts than the big guns of the Oueen Elizabeth. No warship could shell New York from a distance at sea equalling the range of land artillery. Messrs. John and Owen Sullivan have good speaking parts in the play Friday evening.

The rights of German and Austrian governments are not involved at all. Germany does not even protest our right to sell arms and ammunition; although she has expressed her sur prise at our enormous sales of ammu nition to the Allies and our failure at the same time to insist upon our un- doubted right to deliver foodstuffs to the civilians of Germany and Austria-Hungary. The question, however. is essentially one of our own self-respect. WTiat precedents have we in our own history to guide us During our late difficulties with Mexico our government prevented a German merchantman from deliver ing arms and ammunition to one of the Mexican factions. The German ship was clearly within her rights; but she yielded to our desire. What was the foundation for action? Plain ly our government did not sympathize with the particular consignee. We objected to giving aid to Huerta from any source. We exercised a prefer ence between two belligerent factions even to the extent of interfering with the rights of another power. By the same rule we cannot now , in sist upon the right to sell arms to the Allies, and at the same time escape the suspicion before the world and before our own people that we are exercising a preference in favor of one and against another friendly power.
