Despite Alt the Talk War I isn't Inevitable War talk has deluged the world (hiring the lust year in a rising flood. That fact in ilsolf is probably n greater factor in the possibility of war than any other thing. The professional observer, the political adventurer, the armament manu- fuclurcr, the proiwgandist, all these thrive on war talk, You would think, to rend their outiwurings, that there was no escape from another world war. It is jKirfectly true Unit war armament is greater than it wa.s before the World War. U is perfectly true .that the governments of states like Russia, Italy, France am! Germany consider it good policy to foment war talk because it helps lo unite their peoples politically. r.- " ' ' ' But underneath it all there is a' growing conviction on the part of the inarticulate millions that it is all needless, useless, that it must not be. And, further, that there is nothing to be gained by it. Because they speak for a growing number of people in every country in the world, the still small voices of a few who speak of peace and hope should get. a wider hearing than they do. For instance, Frank B. Kellogg, former secretary of state, now nearly 80, doesn't believe aUdl that war on a world scale must come. "I see no probability of a World War again," the co-author of the Kellogg-Rriand anti-war pact says. "Nations and peoples have come to their senses, and have not forgotten and will not soon forget the awful horror, misery, and beastliness of the last conflict, which still has the world prostrate . . . There luis been a lot of war scare talk, but we haven't war yet. • • • "1 came home from Europe a year ago to hear people predicting war within 30, GO or 30 days. There is no war yet .... Every year that passes without war brings the world closer to the ultimate goal—universal peace." Thomas Mann, distinguished German novelist, also believes war will not come inevitably. He believes its consequences are so unpredictable that even governments which rattle the sword freclv will h«sit»H long «nd gravely before going in. There is no use in sticking our heads in the sand, in kidding ourselves that war can be «o more. It can, and it may. But it is equally silly, and far more dangerous, to let go unchallenged the talk that it must come. The prophets of jwace deserve their hearing no le«8 than the prophets of war, that the people may decide which are the true prophets. —Bruce Cation. 8LYTHEV1LLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS OUT OUR Goal of Secession The observance of the birthday o( Jelfor- son iMvto this year WM murkril hy the UMIH! reminders that the ^Idlers o[ [lie f-onlh illd not fight in defense' of slavery, lint rather In defense of the right or their SIMM to wccdc.

Barely Iralf the slates voted for Lincoln, nnd much less than hiilf of the voters, "faeto was no Iminedlale danger ol abolition. Oir the other hand, such imes- llons as thai of'the rcliu'n of fiiflllvc slaves from northcrti stales and tlmi of the right of slave owners lo take their slaves Inlo the unorganized territories would be settled neainst the South by secession. Secession would bring Canada to the Ohio and the I'olomnc, so to six'**, and cltlrxius o[ the .southern states would lose all (heir rights in Hie unuriinnlzed territories ot ttie United Stales. Secession, therefore, would not help slavery. On the contrary It n-oiilrt proscribe It. Why then did tlie people, of the southcri. slates decide by siidi overwhelming nnijorille.s to secede from the Union? A clue to ,the i answer niiiy lie Iiuind by examining Die Constitution of the Confederate. States of America. In what particulars diet It, dlftcr from the Constitution of tlie United .States? The southern slates were hoc to write mi} 1 kind of a Constitution they wuutcd. What kind did they wrllc? The answer lo that nues- tlon ought to give a elite to the soal of secession. As a general statement it may be said that the goal Of secession was independence from the North. But independence for what purpose? What kind of n Constliuilon was provided tor the government over which Jefferson Davis presided? ', Well, aside from Immaterial changes, like the new preamble and the provision ot a single six-year term for the president, the Confederate Constitution contained only three provisions that were not In the Constitution of the United Stales. It prohibited (1) the levying of tariff duties to promote any one form of Industry — the -protective taiift. (2) tlie payment ot bounties, and (3) Federal appropriations for Internal improvements within ih e states. This is the iniquitous trinity from which the cotton and tobacco slates had suffered riiirini; thirty years prior to secession. South Carolina was ready to secede on account ot them' in 1832. 'Hie triumph or n narrowly sectional parly like that which elected Lincoln, meant that henceforth the opposition of the South to these things would be hopeless and futile. And the aftermath of the Civil War proved this appraisal to be correct. Secession would have freed the South from these handicaps to its prosperity-heavy government expenditures for bounties and internal Improvements, and a high tariff system lo raise Ihe revenue lor such expenditures. Secession failed, and so (he fight still remains. —Texas Weekly.
