Washington, July 27. United

American ship Leelanaw, Germany
has once more disregarded the Prussian-American
treaty of 1S28, and
also two American notes recently on.
The treaty provided that Prussia
and the United States would not. harm
each other's ships even though they
were carrying contraband. Germany
has already destroyed three American
ships which the United States holds
were immune under the treaty. They
were the Gulflight, Nebraskan and

- In the latter case Germany took
the position she had not disregarded
the treaty but had exercised the right

of the pact. The fact that the Lee Lee-lanaw's

true that the ladies of Nero's court
wore much less than those of the

very considerable difference between
the climates of Rome and Paris and
London had more to do with it than
their morals or lack of them. If you
will study theology, Friend Leach,
you will find that what we call mor-j

ethical religions of Buddha and 3rah 3rah-ma,

was wrong, but it did not know there
was any such a thing as sin.
There were fifteen to sixteen cen centuries
turies centuries between the court of Nero and
the courts of the Tudors and Stuarts,
the Valois and the Bourbons. In that
time Western Europe had adopted a
code of morals founded on the Chris
tian religion. For oyer a thousand
years men and women had been
taught that murder, rape, seduction,
adultery and theft were not only
wrongs but sins. They believed in
religion far more strenuously than we
do, and put in a good deal of their
time killing people who did not agree
with them about it. Owing to the fact
that no one could be as comfortable,
even in summer, with scanty cloth clothing
ing clothing in London or Paris as they could
be in Rome, they covered themselves
up considerably more than the Romans
of 68 A. D.
Its for these reasons that we go
back to the sixteenth and seventeenth
centuries instead of the first for com
parative morality. We do not intend
that Editor Leach shall take us back
to the days of our childhood, "when,
as Jack London says, "the world was
young," and it was both proper and
common for a man to kill his neigh
bor when he could take him at disad
vantage and appropriate his wife or
any other property he had.

daughter in a form-fitting gown with
a slit for her silk-clad ankles to flash
in and out, and parade her along a
city street where these men congre congregate

There is much food for reflection in
all this, but we do not feel so hope hopeless
less hopeless about it as Friend Leach seems
to feel. The picture houses and the
auto rides only succeed things that
were as bad or worse. A proportion
of women have always sought to at attract
tract attract men, and a larger proportion of
men have always been looking out to
be attracted. As for the clothes, in
Europe and America, up to a short
time ago it was the custom for every
respectable women to swathe herself
from her chin to her heels, which
fashion instead of protecting her vir
tue kept every impure man guessing
about that great proportion of her
that was wrapped up. This fashion
did not increase morality. Its a well
known fact. that there is a much larg
er proportion of illegitimate births in
those colder countries where people
have to cover themselves with clothes
than in the warmer ones where they
can expose their bodies more. Of
late years, women have been dressing
in a more and more comfortable and
sanitary manner. As soon as men be become
come become used to seeing bare necks and
arms at one end and ankles, and then
some, at the other, they will stop
thinking and talking about them, and
the world will wag on as usual. In
the meantime, the fashion of bare
throats and necks will decrease tuber tuberculosis,
culosis, tuberculosis, and as for the other extrem extremity,
ity, extremity, women wall be more comfortable
and just as modest when their skirts
end at their knees. The worst form
of dress women ever wore was the
long skirts which swept the side
walks, and broueht back to their
homes a toll of the impurity gathered
on the streets.
We will join Friend Leach in ob objection
jection objection to the form-fitting gown and
slit skirt, not because they are im immoral
moral immoral but because they are unhealthy
and inconvenient and violate the uni
versal rule of good taste that ladies
and srentlemen should not make
themselves conspicuous anywhere
Denouncing them does no good, but
they are only a freak of fashion, and
like all other freaks, will pass, while
styles in women's dress will draw
nearer the elegance, comfort and
convenience that may some day com
bine into perfection.

ANNUAL BARBECUE AT OXFORD
V. E. P. Ripley
On Relations of Railroads and People
The Industrial leaders of this nation are talking to
the public face to face through the columns of this paper.
The time was when If a corporation had anything to Eay
to the people they sent a hired hand, whispered It through
a lawyer or employed a lobbyist to explain it to the legis legislature,
lature, legislature, but the men who know and the men who do are
nor talking over the fence to the man who plows.
When the leading business men cf this naticn get
' back to the soil" with their problems, strife and dissen dissension
sion dissension will disappear, for when men look into each other's
fac?3 and smile there is a better day coming.
Mr. E. P. Rirley. president cf the Santa Fc Railroad.
when asked to civo hi viws in reference to relations existing between the
railroad and the -iblic sail in part: j
"Frefjuer.tly wo hear statements to the effect that these relations are j
irr.r rcvir:-. t::it th era cf railroad baiting has passed and that public per.ti- j
ment now fav.-rs treating tho railroads fairly. As yet this change in public :
sentiment, if any such there be. is not effective in results.
It is true that in the legislatures of the southwestern states during the
past winter there were fewer unreasonable and unreasoning laws passed
than usual, but a consideration cf the hostile bills introduced shows that
there is still reason for much disquiet even though they were defeated by
more or less cf a majority.
Moreover, the idea that the railroads have been harshly treated does
not seem to i revail in tho offices of the State Railroad Commissions which
seem to cherish a notion that their business is not to act as an arbitrator
between the railroads and the people, but which proceed on the theory that
the railroads are able to take care of themselves and that their duty is to
act as attorney for tho people even though In so doing they deny Justice
to the railroads. It reuirs no argument to demonstrate that the railroads
ore entitled to justice equally with other citizens and taxpayers. That they
have not received it and are not receiving it is perfectly susceptible of
proof. That they have practically no recourse In the courts has also been
The situation therefore is that the people, through their representatives,
must elect whether the services cf the railroads shall be adequately compen compensated
sated compensated or not; and it requires no fortune teller or soothsayer to predict that
in the long run tho service will take the class that Is paid for and no better.
The natural competition between the railroads and the natural desire
to perform f.rst-class service has heretofore resulted in giving the public
much more than it was willing to pay for. Continuation of this will be
impossible and no laws, however drastic, can long accomplish the Impossible."

How a Siphon Acts.
The main principle of the siphon I
the same as that of a suction pump
viz. that If a vacuum be created in a
tube inserted hi water the normal pres pressure
sure pressure of the atmosphere will cause the
water to rise in the vacuum to a
height of about thirty-three feet. The
siphon is a bent tube, one side or leg
of which is longer than the other, and
the conditions of its successful opera operation
tion operation are. first, that the shorter side or
leg be placed in the water; second, the
longer sl'e or leg to hang freely over
the edge of the vessel; third, a vacuum
to be created throughout the length of
the tube by sucking the air from the
longer side. This will be immediately
followed by a tlow of water, which
will continue as long as the mouth of
the shorter side or leg of the tube re
mains under the surface of the water.
In transferring water from a lower
level care should bo taken not to re remove
move remove the short side from the water, as
that would destroy the vacuum and
cause the flow to stop.
