but on the wiles of our own policy."
And of the German traditions that
made this policy possible, he con
cludes: "Were not those right wMo
saw that the German people were
pervaded with the spirit of Treltscke
and Dernardt, which glorifies war as
an end instead of holding it in ab
horrence as an evil thing? They
said that the feudal knight and jun
ker, the warlike caste and not the
ciclllan rules, and Imposes its own
ideals and values; that the. love of
the duel which animates the univer
sity students is still cherished by
those who guide the peoples' destin
ies. Had not the Zabern affair and
the debate on the case in the Reich
stag shown the outer world how civil
rights and liberties are rated with
us. when the conflict with military
prestige? 'Properly- speaking
militarism is a school for the people
and an instrument to further politi
cal ends. But, in the patriarchal ab
solutism of a military monarchy,
militarism exploits politics to furth
er its own ends, and can create a
situation which a democracy freed
from junkerdom would not tolerate.
"That is what our enemies think;
that is what they are bound to thin
when they see that In spite of cap
ilallstii industrialism and in spite of
socialistic organizations, the living, ns
Ntetsche said, are still ruled by the
dead. The democratization of Ger
many, the first war aim uroposed by
our enemies, will become a reality."
That is Germany's confession of
sin and avowal of repentance, as made
by her ambassador to Great Britain.
It leaves her without any justifica
tion, except the one which Llchnow
sky pleads, that she is governed by a
caste of duelists who are determined
to rule the world by the sword. That
sword will have to be broken in the
hands of the Kaiser before the world
will be able to live with Germany.
Lichnowsky, like Muhlon, forsces it.
Germany to Blame.
Vorwaerts, the socialist newspaper
of Germany, forsees it. And the
German-Americans are beginning to
see It, too. One of their most influ
ential dailies, the Germania-Herold
of Milwaukee, has made editorially
"An Open. Confession," which reads:
"It is our duty to make it. We,
too, were among those who laid the
blame for the world war at the doors
of English statesmen. We, too, have
time and again repeated the asser
tion to our readers that these Eng
lish statesmen, jealous of Germany's
success in the world markets, at
tempted to 'encircle' Germany. We,
too, have repeatedly stated that Ger
many is entitled to a place in the sun,
We did so in good faith. For we then
believed what the organs of the Ger
man government proclaimed. We be
lieved at the beginning of the war, and
years thereafter, what most of the
other German papers repeated.
We were then fully convinced, that
the program of English statesmen con
Hinted of nothing less than to stop
Germany's commercial and colonial
expansion. With us one-half of the
world of the western hemisphere was
convinced through the press of Ger
many. We believed In the press of
the old fatherland, which preached
hatred against England everywhere
following its governmental press
where the German voice was sound
ed. Sir Edward Grey, the dictator of
foreign affairs for Great Britain, ap
peared to us as a paragon of base
ness. Now we and with us the rest
of the world which then credulously
listened, are convinced of the oppls
ite. We know now that the British
statesmen, and with them the states
men of the allies, did not only have
no warlike measures against Ger
many in mind but to the last min
ute endeavored to their utmost to
avoid the war. The blame for the
bloodshed lies with the German Gov
"Politiken, the organ of the Swe
dish socialists of the extreme left
on March 15, published the hlstori
cal document by which this guilt Is
established. It was a so-called mem
orandum by Prince Karl Max Llch
nowsky, who before and at the time
of the commencement of the war was
the ambassador for the German em
pire in London."
After quoting at length from the
"memorandum" the editor says: "It
is to be remembered that these words
are not those of an Englishman
They are the words of one of the
noblest of the German nation, to
which the Emperor entrusted the
most important foreign post and with
whom William 11 in his youth was
clsely associated." And the editor
concludes: "Who bearB the blame
that the German people were goaded
into a furious hate and thereby into
a war spirit? Only those in the ser
vice of the junker cIbhs, who are
ruling military caste in Germany,
in control of the government. The
pan-Germans in their megalomania
are the ones who brought about thi
calamity upon tho German people."

The German Wharves

The taking over by the United

shipping property on the Hudson Riv

companies, the North German Lloyd

the American people. The property
Is to be retained by the Government
and not turned back to its former
owners at the close of the war.
Purchasers of Liberty Loan Bonds
and War Savings Stamps, who sup
ply the money used for this purpose,
may feel especial gratification. These
docks and piers nnd wharves are
strategic points of great importance
and value, and it is intolerable that
they should remain in enemy hands,
or that they should ever revert to
German ownership. German com
merce has been shown to have been
so indissolilbly bound up with, and
so much a part of German Militarism
that it is just and right that it should
suffer all the penalties of war.
