Hie sail of hcer on tho Island of Kauai in
one place ami lo one company to the exclus
ion of nil others, when the local hoard of lic
ense commissioners have decided that the Is
land shall be dry from the tirst day of July
for a period as long us the war lasts.
The company that we have reference to is
the Honolulu Brewing 'and Malting Co., and
the place is Nawiliwili. Beer can he pur
chased at this place in as small quantities as
three dozen bottles, although the company
say that they do not intend to sell it in less
quantities than barrel lots. This state of af
fairs will last until August twentieth. Just
whether anything can be done to stop the sale
of beer on this Island, we were unable to as
sectain, but certainly something should be
done. We see no reason why Kauai should
be made the wholesale station for the distri
bution of beer. If we are to have prohibition
for one, let us have it for all, and that un
qualifiedly for all.
BRAND "WIIITLOCK, our minister to Bel
iam when the German hordes first enter
ed that martyred country and for three long
years there after, is now telling us some of
the things that happened during that orgie
of German lust. He writes in "Everybody's"
"It ws on Sunday morning of the 2:Srd; the
Germans that swarmed down the Fried rau
road, entered the quarter of Tenant, arrested
the inhabitants and took them to the Rocher
Bayard. The people were held there, evident
ly as u screen, while the Germans began to
construct a temporary bridge over the river.
The French were on the other side, and now
and then they shot at the soldiers working
there. The Germans, annoyed by the spitting
irregular lire, sent a citizen of Dinant, one
of the prisoners, in a small boat across the
river to inform the French that unless they
stopped firing the civilians would be shot.
M. made his dangerous voyage, accomp
lished his mission, and returned to take his
.place among his fellows. But a few stray
bullets still sped across the river.
"Then was committed the atrocious crime.
The prisoners were massed together, nearly
90 of them, old men and young, women, girls,
and boys, little children, and babies in their
mothers' arms. A platoon was called up; the
colonel in command gave the word, to fire, and
the gray soldiers, in cold blood, shot down
those !0 persons as they stood huddled to
gether. Among them were 12 children under
the age of (i years, G of whom were little bab
ies, whose mothers, as they stood up to face
their pitiless murderers, held them in their
"The six babies were the child Flevet, 'A
weeks old; Nellie I'ollet, 11 months old; Man-
rice Betemps, 11 months old; Gildu Genen,
18 months old; Hilda Marchot, 2 years old,
and Clara Struvay, 2 years old.
"Evening came; the soldiers were fumbling
among the mass of the dead. Home were still
living; some, by a miracle, were uuinjured.
And these were dragged from the pile of bod
ies and made to dig a pit and to tumble into
it the bodies of the victims of the tragedy,
their relatives, their neighbors, ami their
Thrre are two million reasons why every
American should buy War Savings Stamps,
and they are, that there are two million bab
ies in America under two years of age.
NOTIIER case of the fiendishness of the
Hun is shown in the deliberate destruc
tion of the hospital ship, the Llandovery
Castle, when they shelled the small boats con
taining more than two hundred and fifty of
the nurses, medical officers and crew. It was
another case of "leave no evidence" but this
time it did not work as there were twenty
four who reached the laud in safety, and who
told of this dasterdly piece of work.
When will this kind of war fare be stop
ped? The only answer is, that when the peo
ple of the civilized nations begin to realize
that they must retaliate in kind, to do the
same with the Hun, to wipe them out forever
from the face of the earth. Then this kind
of war will cease and not before.
If we are merciful to this kind of brutes,
they will simply gather their strength togeth
er and again repeat these same outrages on
our generations to come. The Hun must be
stopped for all time, this time, and they will
be, for, "The Yanks are going over, The Yanks
are going over and they won't come back till
it's over, over there."

Germany9 s Confession
It has come at last. After protect
ing innocence and brazenly denying
guilt for nearly four years, Germany
has admitted her crime against civil
ization. She has done it through her form
er ambassador in England, Prince
Lichnowsky. He has been corrobo
rated by a former director of the
grat Krupp gun factory, a Dr. Muh
lon. And the truth of their testimony
has been substantially admitted by
the man who was Germany's foreign
minister when Prince Lichnowsky
was German ambassador in London
namely, Her von Jagow.
The documents in the case have
been obtained by the State Depart
ment at Washington and translated
They are complete and convincing.
After setting forth all the damn
ing evidence against Germany, Prince
Lichnowsky sums it up:
"First. We encouraged Count Ber
chold (the Austrian foreign minister)
to attack Serbia, although no German
Interest was involved and the danger
of a world war must have been known
to us. Whether or not we knew the
text of the Austrian ultimatum to
Serbia makes no difference whatever.
"Second. We rejected Great Brit
ain's plan of mediation in the days
between the 23rd and 30th of July,
1914. We did this after Mr. Sasanof
(the Russian foreign minister) had
emphatically declared he could not
tolerate an attack on Serbia; after
Serbia, upon pressure from Russia and
England, had accepted nearly the ( very

Dr. Muhlon'g Evidence
Dr. M union, of the board of Krupp's
directors, does not make a summing
up. He merely gives evidence that
in the middle of July, 1914, he had a
business conversation with a director
of the Deutsche Bank In Berlin, who
advised him that the bank would not
assist Krupps in "certain large trans
actions in Bulgaria and Turkey" be
cause the political situation bad "be
come very menacing" and the Deut
sche Bank would have to wait "be
fore entering into any further engage
ments abroad." This director of the
Deutsche Bank was Dr. Helfferich,
since vice chancellor of Germany.
He explained: "The Austrians have
just been with the Kaiser. In a
week's time Vienna will send a very
severe ultimatum to Serbia, with a
short interval for an answer.
A whole series of definite satis-
points, in themselves not hard to ad

(the Austrian foreign minister) was
ready to be satisfied with the Serbian
"Third. On the 30th of July, with
Count Berchtold willing to listen to
reason, before Austria was touched,
factions will be demanded at pnee;
otherwise Austria-Hungary will de
clare war on Serbia."
This is the ultimatum about which
the German authorities have insisted
they were not consulted.
Dr. Muhlon continues: "Dr. Helf
ferich added that the Kaiser had ex-

Russia mobilized, and that this time
people would see that he did not turn

ence that this time nobody would be
able to accuse him of indecision had
he said, been almost comic in its
On the day when the Austrian
ultimtaum to Serbia was delivered
the Kaiser was on a yachting trip in
the North Sea. That fact has often
been advanced as proof of German
jnnocence. But when Dr. Muhlon
read the ultimatum to Serbia he had
another interview witjh Helfferich,
and he testifies that "Helfferich said
to me that the Kaiser had gone on

Von Jagow's Admission
And finally Herr von Jagow, Ger
many's foreign minister at thg out
break of the war, In replying to Prince
Lichnowsky's evidence, makes thi
startling admission, among others

valent among us to-day that England
laid all the mines for the outbreak of

the war popular with the English peo
ple. Belgium had to serve as a battle
field." Von Jagow even admits that
war might have been averted by an
international conference on the Ser
bian situation. "We could not agree,"
he says, "to the English proposal of a
conference of ambnssadors, for it
would doubtless have lead to a serf
ous diplomatic defeat. For Italy, too,
was pro-Serb, and, with her Balkan
interests, stood rathef opposed to
Austria." That is to say, Von Jagow
admits that war was chosen by Ger
many as an altlrnative to an interna
tional conference, which would have
declared the Austrian demands on
Serbia unjust even in the eyes of Italy,
the ally of Austria and Germany.
How did these conferences come to
Dr. Muhlon's Conscience
With Dr. Muhlon it was evidently a
case of conscience. When the war be
gan he resigned his position as a di
rector of Krupp's Works, at Essen,
and retired to his estate in Switzcr-!
land, near Berne. There ho lived a I

Through all sorts of agencies the
United States Food Administration
has endeavored to bring home to the
nation the vital necessity for send
ing wheat, meat, fats and sugar oyer
there. What has been the response?
Before the war we used to send
across about 85 million pounds of
pork products every month. In 1010,
nefor.; we were really 'in i'," th:ri
was a great demand and so we began
to send more. We even got up to
121,000,000 pounds a month. But our
herds of hogs decrei.sed in doing
this, for we were increasing our own
consumption to a great extent. That
meant that rhe.o Ii;:d to bn a big

Now comes the startling part of
the story. Today, with practically
the same herd of hogs in relation
to the population that wo had before
the war, we are exporting about 2S5
million pounds every month, that is
over three times as much as in" peace
As for beef, before the war wo used
to send 17,0u0,ii00 pounds a month,
while today wo are shipping 70.000,000
pounds a mouth.
Perhaps wheat has been our biggest
problem. Wo have realized how verv

he had made to visitors, and he was
put under the surveillance of spies
from the German embassy at Berne.
Later, members from the Socialist
Party in the Reichstag visited him,
and the German press reported that a
retired Krupp official living in Switz
erland "claimed to be in possession of
certain secrets seriously compromising
the honor of the German Government
in the matter of the responsibility for
the war." The newspapers began to
hint that this official was out of hl3
