to keep the appointment and he nev

The case is an extremely mysterious
one, and the officers admit that they
have little clue to connect Paresa
with the crime if one was committed.
Paresa enlisted in the navy more
than a year ago under the name of
Joe Holua. He was assigned to the
steamer Manchuria, plying cross the
Atlantic. Through some trouble he
eot into, it is said that he was dis
charged at the Brooklyn Navy Yard
and sent back to Pearl Harbor to
work out a debt. This he had just
done. He was arrested by the police

Reward For Murderer Offered
The Honolulu authorities have of
fered a reward of $500 for informa
tion leading to the conviction of the
person or persons responsible for
young Char's death.
There seems to be very little ev
idence to fasten the crime on Paresa,
particularly as the latter has explain
ed the blood on his clothing as due to
a cut finger.
The police have now advanced the
suggestion that Char may have been
the victim of automobile joy riders,
who, after running down and killing
the young sailor placed his body on
the railroad track in hope of hiding
their crime. A number of persons
are being watched on this theory.

CAN WE LOVE THE GERMANS?
By Rev. J. CHARLES VILLIERS.
In answer to the question "Can we
love the Germans? I said, in a recent
sermon, "We can, but probably we do
not. We can love them as Christ
taught wo should love our enemies,
but we cannot like them. The at
mosphere of our life, our moral con
ceptions, and our sense of duty, as a
nation, make that impossible." "But,"
I continued, "if America, herself, is
not to go backward, and retreat from
that true centre of life which is her
God-given birth-right, she MUST love
the Germans. Only as she does, will
Germany and the world of humanity,
to whom political democracy, in a
practical way, is as ytt unknown, be
brought nearer, in thought and ex
perience, to the time when,
'Man to man, the warld o'er,
Shall brothers be, for a' that.' "
In saying this one need not defend,
by word or suggestion, the inhuman
conduct of Germany in this war. None
but those who are in fellowship with
the powers of darkness could be guilty
of such inhumanity to man as Ger
many has been guilty of. When one
thinks about it, it makes one's blood
boil in righteous anger. One feels
that what America and her Allies are
fighting against is hell let loose on
the nations of the earth, a thing that
must be fought against until Ger
many is brought to unconditional sur
render; beaten to the dust.
Both "Love" and "Hate" have rights
and duties. Just at this stage of the
war, the duty of America and her Al
lies to Germany, is in line with the
teaching of Christ: "they that take
the sword", for unlawful, offensive
warfare, "shall perish by the sword".
Against all such diabolical cruelty as
Germany has been guilty of, the doc
trine of Christ is: "I came not to send
peace, but a sword."
Our Lord was an exponent of the
doctrine of love. As such he taught
patience under provocation. But He
did not teach that to "love our en
emies" is to yield, without resistance,
to cruelties, worse than beastly, that
would desolate and make a hell of
earth. He recognized a use of the
sword in defense of virtue and right
John Ruskin says "A nation once
utterly corrupt cannot be redeemed
by talking, or by free, moral, effort,
but only by military despotism."
If America and her Allies, in their
love for Germany I use the word
LOVE advisedly refuse to enter in
to peace negotiations with Germany
until she has unconditionally surrend
ered, it may be callcl "despotism".
But it is warrantable, moral, despot
ism, infinitely milder than Germany
has shown to her enemies in Uiis war,
or than she would sho v to the wo'ld.
were she the conqueror she willed to
be. A German conquest would have
meant the world under perpetual de
Germany knows, and all the world
knows what we are fighting for, and
what we are fighting against. We
are fighting for justice, liberty, and
human rights. We are fighting
against the triumph of MIGHT over
Now America went into the war
with clean hands; because, as Pres
ident Wilson said, when war was forc
ed upon her, in his great declaration
of her aim and purpose, "God helping
her she could do no other. She is,
with her Allies, going to finish the
war with hands as clean as they were
when she went into it. And she is
going to keep her hands clean when,
after the war, she deals with the fu
ture life of Germany.
It may be hard for us, as a people,
to keep our hearts free from the bit
terness of vindictive, malignant, hat
red in our present and future deal
ings with Germany. But our integrity
is such, and our moral aims are such
that we shall do it. If there were
moral value in vindictive hatred we
might nurse it. But there is not. it
is a poison which corrupts. It leads
to moral bankruptcy. Germany on
the witness stand would furnish all
the evidence necessary to prove that
claim. Her cruelty in this war is the
logical outcome of that state of mind
by which she has been possessed for
many years. And bitter hate has
played its part in that state of mind.
She set Might above Right, anc", final
ly, put her doctrine to the test in
practical politics, in government, in
war. It has brought her to moral,
political, national bankruptcy.
Now it is impossible for America
to emulate the perfidy and cruelty of
Germany. If one did not believe this,
one might despair of the future of
America. We say it is impossible.
But to swerve from the principles
with whteh we entered the war, now,
or in future, to pander to those pas
sions of malignant hatred and reven
ge, that, apparently, some of our coun
trymen would have us pander to,
would be a first step in the direction
in which Germany has been travelling
for so many years.
Do we hate the Germans? I answer.
"Yes, but not with their kind of hat
red a hatred in which lies the seed
of moral and national corruption. As
u nation, the Ameiican people are in
capable of ruch hatred. Their hatred
is that, of righteous anger and Indigna
tion, the hatred of the moral sense
outraged beyond endurance a hatred
which is the obverse side of love.
Such hatred should be felt by us. If
it Were not. we KhnnlH ha rt-.tnv in
compromise the principles of justice,
nueriy, ana numan rigius. Love, itself,
would soon be bankrupt. Surh hat
red is not only consonant with love,
out. essential to it.
It was in this sense I asked the
question in mv sermon nf th
ago, "Can we love the Germans?",
and answered it by saying: "We can,
and must for our own good, as
well as for the good of Germany."

One of our most difficult problems.
Just now, in connection with the war,
is to maintain an even balance be
tween righteous anger, and malignant
hate. There is a line of demarcation.
America will find it. Along that line
lie the better things of love and the
brotherhood of humanity.
Our path may not be altogether
