"ENEMIES Ot THE O'Eli ?IAN
lt hus - remained for thc Gurman

own new upa pi; rs and leaders in thia
country ought tu have given them
A recent statement from JJerlin to
(he American public tells active pro
Gormans what the majority of Ame ri'
?.ans have known for many months
that violent efforts in behalf of the
Fatherland only defeut their own
Tlio German government in thin
statement "docs most emphatically
declaro to Germans abroad? to Q .r
man-Amerlcan citizens in the United
Statu;, to the American people, all
ollho, that whoever la guilty of con
duct tending to associate its cause
with lawlessness of thought, sugges
tion or deed against Ufo. property or
crder in tho Unlt&d States is in fuel
an enemy of that very cause and a
Bourco of embarrassment to the Ger
man government, notwithstanding
auythlug bc or they may believe to
The sincerity of Germany's dis
claimer of ail responsibility for of
fensive propaganda and acts of vio
lence in this country need not be dis
cussed nt present. Legal procedure
now under way will soon show what
connection, if any, Berlin has with the
conspiracies and crimes for which
eighty Germau partisans, some aliens
nnd others American citizens, are now
under arrest in tho United States. The
point is that, whether the activities
in question were inspired from Ber
lin or not, they were foolish In in
tent and execution, doing Germany in
calculably moro harm in a moral
censa than could be compensated by
any incidental material gain through
interfering with the allies' war sup
There is no question that legitimate
advocacy of the German cause has
coffered grievously. in the United
Slate? because of these plots and pro
paganda. The American public has
boen driven to such indignation that
Germany bas not had a fair bearing.
Thero is no question, oltlier, that
German-Americans as a class have
suffered undeservedly from tho mis
guided zeal of a few propagandists
and fewer criminals. Tboro har, never
been any good reason why Gcrman
AraerlcaniBm should be associated
with criminality. . And yot many Ger

.Gcrman-dunguage . newspapers, which

policy ot condonom?nt of crime and
denunciation of things American that
they hayo fostered this misconcep
tion nnd fastened an undeserved taint
cn their own pcpplo.
Now tho repudiation by Germany of
tho policy .'which theao leaders and
organ ti ' have openly or . covertly en
couraged leaves them aa high and dry
as Germany's back-down In tho sub

had stubbornly maintained tho prin

SENATORIAL SUI HTS AND PANT?
. L-'?' .
Tho sartorial question in its rela
tion to statesmanship ls brought to
the j;?e by Senator Lawrence Y.
Sharman of Illinois. Tho two Bona
tora from that ?tate represent op
posite extremes " in . dress. . Senator
James Hamilton Lewis, as thc. 'world
knows, is the fashion plate of the nu
lion's capital, and a source of per
petual inspiration and pride to his be
loved Chicago. As for Senator Sher
man-well, here aro the facts; evory
moa may site the.senator up for hira
Severs! months ago Senator Sher
man's campaign manager, W. S
Rosanfeld, inveigled him Into a Wash

s?nihtlon of the great .-state ot HU
nola. $*r;Rosenfold also added vlg
! ?rous comments, of his own. Where
?upon the senator: wrote a reply fron
which the?? excerpts are,taken:
'T am sorry to mako;my frtenda si

"Moreover, ! am confirmed in my
course of life by my colleague, Sena
tor Lewis. What hope Is there of
competing with him in bia ward
robe? So I very contentedly resign j
all claims to wearing npparei. Sen
ator Lewis keeps tho gossips guessing
so much of tho time that they never ?
notice me, and this ls a very happy
arrangement for both of us.
"I will keep the bag out of the
knees of my punts and not let my
brains get baggy any more than i can
help. Thc lutter, I suspect, is prob-,
ably thc main thing, ofter all, al
though Washington shows signs of it*
very Bcldoin." ;
The public probably has the same
suspicion. And even Illinois, if it
were perfectly honest, would doubt
less confess to a secret admiration of
Senator (Sherman's attitude.
Abraham Lincoln, who also was
from Illinois, would have scorned
even to have his trousers pressed.
And there isn't any question that,
whether it's a case of statesmen or of
ordinary human beings, the average
American pr?fets the baggy-trouBerB
type to the Beau Brummel.
Col. Henry Watterson, the famous
editor of the Louisville Courlor-Jour
nnl, was asked on bis golden wedding
anniversary what the secvet of mar
ital happiness ls. And he replied:
"There's no secret about it. .Mrs.
Watterson has always let me alone,
and I have let her alono. When she
saw I needed help she asked me how
she could aid me, and did lt. When
Bho was not exactly satlsfled about,
anything, 1 just asked her If I could
help her. . That s all."
This doesn't cover tho wholo
ground, by any means, but it prob
ably contains the essential recipe for
matrimonial success. Tho divorce
courts show that domestic felicity is
likely to bo duo to one of these two
Either ono partner tries to inter-,
fere too much with the other's . free
dom, or else one ia too indifferent to
tho other, Either may be fatal.
