July 4. 1916 The war news of the last few days has been to say the least of it encouraging. After weary months of waiting, SOMETHING is being done at last. We orerheard a "man in the street" remark that the war had justbegun, and there was a great deal of trutli in what he said. Earl Kitchener evidently foresaw what was to happen, when at the outbreak of hostilities he predicted a three years fight. We were caught napping when the war broke out,—no army, no munitions, no preparations. We have had to pay for our slackness and their long delay in assuming the offensive is part of the price. We are attacking now, and reports coming through show that we are making SOME progress. We use the word "some" advisedly, as we wish to emphasise the fact that progress must necessarily be slow. The enemy has "dug himself in" and has something like eight lines of trenches to retire to. His defences must be shattered by artillery fire, and the ground well prepared before we can advance.and even at thnt all ground gained must be consolidated. Wo must therefore be prepared still to possess our souls in patience, and to remember that the war is not over yet. There is still a lotfor US to do; let us get on with it then. While the advance of the British and French armies must of necessity be slow, our brave Russian allies seem to be going ahead very rapidly with their drive. It does'nt seem likely that Germany will be able to reinforce her! ally; Great Britain and France intend to keep HER occupied. Italy too is driving the Austrians back, so altogether we can hope that before very long Germany will be brought to her knees, and made to submit to terms of peace which shall be dictated to her by the allies. Let us hope that the end of this war may mean the end of German "frightfulness" and all kindred horrors for all time. —:o:— The S. S.

The Editor of The Tribune Sir, I did not think that my worst enemy can say that I am self conscious, but he could say with a great show of reason, that I cared very little for myself if I were to pass unnoticed the careless and slovenly typesetting of the article "E x p 1 a i n i n g 'Boche," which appeared in The Tribune of the ist July. My intention toexplain the meaning of "Boche" has I foar been subverted by the printing in Roman type of the entire article, and the omission of the use of Italics in all the important words sheding light on the subject. The omission also of inverted commas, or quotation marks in the first paragraph, leads the reader to believe that you had already referred to the word Boche. These defects are calculated to rob the expiairiation which 1 Had intended of any use, and to render "confusion worse confounded". May 1 ask therefore, that you will relieve me of the onus, and place it where it belongs. You is respectfully CHAS. S. RAE II Trinity Place.

Another Irish Warning.
IT would be imprudent to dis-
regard the warnings of an
liishtnan who has proved so
trustworthy a prophet as Ma
jor Stuart Stephens. Passages
from his clear and accurate
forecast of the Sinn Fein rising
have already been quoted in
The Tribune, and it has since
bean established that tht Bri-
tish authorities were in pos
session of a fuller and mort de-
tailed report five months before
Sir Roger Casement's landing
In this report due credit was
fciven to Sir Roger Casement
for perfecting the plan, Major
Stuajt-Stephens was careful to
expnrrn that it had been drawn
up in the rough by the Germans
as long ago as March 1913.
So entirely correct was his
account of the plans made for
the recent abortive rebellion by
the Germans and their Irish-
American friends that his furth
er prognostications in "The
English Review," for June are
worth heeding. After explain-
ing thestaps he took to gather
information of what was g"ing
on in Ireland and here in New
York he proceeds:
"And now let me urge one
more and last warning. The
state of delirious excitement
into which Ireland has been
plunged, the hero-worship
lavish on the 'victims' of
"the butcher from Egypt,'as
General Maxwell is described
by the Sinn Feiners. has had
its due effpet on Celtic en-
thusiasm. There are men in
conspiracy fully prepared to
emulate those who sacrificed
themselves in other days to
slay William the Silent and
Henri Oufctreunder the in
flueflce of similar excite
ment. .
The people of these isles pos
sess, where recent history is
concerned, marvellously short
memories Vet there are sure
ly a few cf us who remember
the grim procession of as
sassi nations that in the Irish
capital drove the authorities
to the end of their witsnot
a long road for them to
travel. // may be attempted by
the Inner Circle of this remark
able conspiracy to establish an
other Dublin Rtign of Terror.
1 know Paris, I know Dublin.
Doth cities are wonderful
alike in the capacity of their
political subterranean ele
ments in one time or another
to use old Kruger's phrase,
to 'stagger humanity,' or, to
recall the words of the mons
ter informer James Carey,
'make history.' "
His solution of the eternal
problem of Irish government is
also worth quoting : "My deep
est conviction," he says, "is
that question need not rest eter
nal if England gave now to Ire
land the same autonomy as she
extended to the beaten Boers
and astonished the beaten Sinn
Feiners with a handsome mea
sure of amnesty. In other words
hand over that much-perturbed
island to Irishman who have
learned to roast pigs without
burning houses. They would
tun certain of their country
men into being les extravagant
cooks."
Unfortunately, he does not
tell us how to dispose of the
mean and furtive schemers in
this country, those cowards,
who do not care to learn, and
never will learn, a better way,
but are still willing to force
of
out running the least risk
scorching their own fingers.

I'uesdjvv. July 4. 1916
The war news of the last
few days has been to say the
least of it encouraging. After
weary months of waiting,
SOMETHING is being done
at last.
We orerheard a "man in
the street" remark that the
war had justbegun, and there
was a great deal of trutli in
what he said. Earl Kitchener
evidently foresaw what was
to happen, when at the out-
break of hostilities he pre-
dicted a three years fight. We
were caught napping when
the war broke out,no army,
no munitions, no prepara-
tions. We have had to pay
for our slackness and their
long delay in assuming the
offensive is part of the price.
We are attacking now, and
reports coming through show
that we are making SOME
progress.
We use the word "some"
advisedly, as we wish to em-
phasise the fact that progress
must necessarily be slow.
The enemy has "dug himself
in" and has something like
eight lines of trenches to re-
tire to. His defences must be
shattered by artillery fire, and
the ground well prepared be-
fore we can advance.and even
at thnt all ground gained
must be consolidated. Wo
must therefore be prepared
still to possess our souls in
patience, and to remember
that the war is not over yet.
There is still a lotfor US to
do; let us get on with it then.
While the advance of the
British and French armies
must of necessity be slow, our
brave Russian allies seem to
be going ahead very rapidly
with their drive. It does'nt
seem likely that Germany
will be able to reinforce her!
ally; Great Britain and
France intend to keep HER
occupied.
Italy too is driving the
Austrians back, so altogether
we can hope that before very
long Germany will be
brought to her knees, and
made to submit to terms of
peace which shall be dictated
to her by the allies.
Let us hope that the end
of this war may mean the end
of German "frightfulness"
and all kindred horrors for
all time.

The Editor
of The Tribune
Sir,
I did not think that
my worst enemy can say that
I am self conscious, but he
could say with a great show
of reason, that I cared very
little for myself if I were to
pass unnoticed the careless
and slovenly typesetting of
the article "E x p 1 a i n i n g
'Boche," which appeared in
The Tribune of the ist July.
My intention toexplain the
meaning of "Boche" has I
foar been subverted by the
printing in Roman type of
the entire article, and the
omission of the use of Italics
in all the important words
sheding light on the subject.
The omission also of inverted
commas, or quotation marks
in the first paragraph, leads
the reader to believe that you
had already referred to the
word Boche.
These defects are calcula-
ted to rob the expiairiation
which 1 Had intended of any
use, and to render "confusion
worse confounded".
May 1 ask therefore, that
you will relieve me of the
onus, and place it where it
belongs.
You is respectfully
