The accepted pacifist- view is that nations district one another when they go about, armed to the teeth, and that to demonstrate your preparedness is a sure way to set the other fellow thinking of a light. Sometimes, though, il seems as if things don't follow that formula. Recently a huge. British fleet held maneuvers in the Leeward Islands, in the West Indies. It was the mightiest fleet England ever sent across tiie Atlantic. Not since the day of Kodncy has so great a proportion of the empire's naval strength visited the edge of the Caribbean.. > • * And yet this demonstration aroused not a shadow of fear or suspicion in the United Status. No one has risen to suggest that these maneuvers me.w» that England is looking ahead to a war with the United States. Indeed, it is likely; that not one American in 50 even has known that the British tlect was on this side of the Atlantic. Of those who did know, hardly anyone has thought twice about it. • Compare that slate of affairs with what happened a year,or so ago, when the United States fleet held its maneuvers off Hawaii. The whole Japanese nation became alarmed. The stunt was looked upon as a direct menace to Japan. It was asserted widely that preparation for war with Japan was the only possible motive for such action. • % • The two cases are almost perfectly parallel, on the surface. [Jut one passed unnoticed; the other led to an I amazing amount of war talk. Why? ! Perhaps the answer is that arma- j ments do not, in themselves, cause 1 . fear and suspicion, after all. If the national interests of tsvo countries are in conflict, or seem to be, then military > demonstration will provoke uneasiness and cause irritation; if fear and - suspicion exist lo begin with, in other words, fliict i maneuvers will bring them ', out into the open. i But if they don't—if two nations know perfectly well that they are going lo live peaceably, side by side, as the United States and England know' lu-then the admirals can parade their dreadnaughU when a n d where they please, and no one will think twice about it. —Hruce Cation. I SIDE GLANCES By George Clark 1' Slow Justice The law's delays have been a scandal since the time of Shakespeare; or, for that matter, since the time of Rabelais, who had certain jibes to make about the lawyers. The latest attack upon this ancient difficulty conies from Governor Lehman of New York, in a special message to the legislature recently. Urging revision of th estate's court processes, the governor ixiinted out that in many cases it takes as long as foil)', years after a suit has been filed before it can be brought to trial. Such a delay, obviously, very often will amount to a complete denial of justice. Not all states, of course, have courts which ojKjratu as slowly as these of which Governor Lehman complains. It is safe to say, however, thai there is no stale in which the course of justice could not profitably be accelerated. It would be a good thing if other governors could follow Governor Lehman's tactics. No Change Wanted Thu.-:e jwlitical scientists who declare that the United States needs a parliamentary form of government patterned after the English model, with an administration which stands or falls by its success in the House of Representatives, might notice that if such a system were actually in effect, President Roosevelt would now be out of ollice. When the House voted Hie §2,200,000,000 soldiers' bonus bill the other day, in direct defiance of the White House program, it took a step which under a parliamentary government would have required the immediate resignation of the entire administration. Under many conditions, of course, that would be an excellent thing. Most Americans, however, will probably conclude that just now a break in the continuity of things at Washington, with the confusion and delay incident to a new national election, might easily prove an exceedingly bad thing. "Oh, I haven't time lo explain il all to you."
