This is the curse

TI3 ADVERTISER'S SEia-WEEKLY
THER things beyond military engagements,
collision of great bodies of troops
the taking of trenches, hills and
ildges, actual gains in territory go to work for the
winning of the war. Were the observer to judge
merely from the surface appearances, i from the
battles won or lost or left in atvncfecisive state,
the past week might be considered as having been
uneventful. And yet military experts' and states
men consider this the most critical stage of the
great war against Hunism and Prussian autocracy.
How the weather, conditions on 'the Western
front, irt Belgium and in France, have operated is
not quite so clear. It would appear from the daily
reports from those sectors that the Teutons, great
ly reinforced both as to man power and in gun
power are making preparations to'deliver power
ful blows upon the Allies. . ., :v
When it is said that this is the critical period
of the war many factors enter into the assertion.
Russia is still out of it so far as. a fighting factor
goes and is likely to continue neglible" for weeks
or months at least even, if that country ever1 again
demand consideration as a betigereht. Thus has
it been made possible for the Germans ' and the
Austrians to make preparations for the drive it is
expected they will attempt to launch as soon as
weather conditions and preparedness admit Un
fortunately this comes at a time before the United
States is in a position to undertake its share in the
actual military operations of Europe. This coun
try is still in .the preparatory stage. j
.. No nation recognizes this more clearly than
does Germany'- Now is the opportunity for the
kaiserbund to deliver telling blows. Now is the
sweep the allies off their feet and
back or face an absolute certainty of defeat. Those
blows must be struck now, before the: United
States can .be the powerful factor that Germany
knows it will be. Here is the crucial question.
Can the Allies hold or practically hold the Ger
mans or must they sustain losses of men and of
territory from which it will take months to re
cover with "the United States then bearing its full
brunt? Britons have been warned that they must
expect some reverses and must not be too confi
dent for the next few months.
The United States is going forward. Investiga
tions have shown that the work of equipping and
drilling and, training the soldiers; (attention to
their comfort and their heeds have been far 'from
perfect but even so a higher degr.ee of efficiency
has been ishown' than eyerefore in.; thh.istory
tif "the 'ebuntry and he jnatpn )s Jooking for jts
mistakes,'. strivirtg to idrrect them ''and willing to
learn from, the . experiences of other beligerents.
. There have been points that held encourage
ment for the Allies in news from the peace con
1 ere nee. Failure to agree upon terms would not
necessarily mean that Russia would be back at
the front fighting but the picture of Russia and
the Central Powers at peace, Russia furnishing
wheat and other food supplies to the enemy is not
a pleasant prospect for the foes of autocracy to
contemplate. Failure of the peace conference
means failure of needed food for the enemy, suc
cess means comparatively plenty to replace acute
Splitting up into separate entities, some of them
small and weak, Russia is in no position to put
into the field arid keep there a great army. How
the riven country could hold back a Teuton ad
vance is not clear and the prospect is not a pleas
ant one but it is less disconcerting than the pros
pect of Russia on friendly terms with the Central
Slowly, but none the less surely, is the under
sea campaign of Germany being broken. It is
true that the last week of the old year showed
losses that would make, this assertion appear
groundless but taking results for the month and
for the year there was occasion for feelings of
ncouragement. Germany is losing submarines
faster than she can build them. Her U-boats are
how mere hyenas of the sea that prey upon tramp
steamers. It may be that. this drive is merely the
beginning of the end.
Britain's war aims, as outlined on Saturday by
the British premier indicate determination and
show nothing of any discouragement. He shows
the righteousness of the Allied cause and that
there can be no going back.
In this country events have followed thick and
fast one upon the other. Railroads are under gov
trnment' control. Passenger service is giving way
to the movement of freight. The taking over of
the transportation lines was nothing short of revo
lutionary. Other similar courses may be adopted.
Individual rights must noA' git way to the rights
of the whole people as represented by their gov
ernment. There is conscription of the railroads
just as there is conscription of the young men of
the country and it may be that there will be con
tcription of other industries as well, the coal
mines, the meat packeries, other industries essen
tial to the winning of the war and this may be fol
lowed by a conscription of lalor to keep them go
ing at full speed.
In the actual hostilities the Italians and Allies
have more than held their own in Northern Italy.
The Germans have made an attempt at a drive
upon British positions and were generally re
pulsed, to exception bring some .small iorward
positions, while in Palestine the successes uf the
British arms arc being continued.

Liberal In Charities ,
Pastor ' Isenberg ha been a man of
many and unostentatious charities, ons
who truly . believed in the Injunction
not to let the right hand Know what
the left hand doeth. - There were also
many important gifts for the pood of
the community in which he lived so
many years. He was largely instru
mental in building up the Lihue hospi
tal, of which he was for a time presi
dent. Hans Isenberg was. born in Moine,
Hanover, Germany, on October 6, 1855,
making his age at death oyer 62 years.
He married Dora Bice Isenberg in
Germany, (September 1, 1883. Mrs.
Isenberg, who survives him -without
children, is a niece of Hon. W. ' H.
Bice ef Kauai and of Mrs. C. M. Cooke
of Honolulu. Educated in 'a village
school, by privarta lessons, and in high
school to begla, Mr. Isenberg went on
to the Cello gymnasium for five years,
graduating with honors ia 1875, later
attending the University of Leipzig for
one year and the University of Ooetti
gen two and a half years.
Served In Army
While at Goettigen he servud ons
year in the German army, failing hi
firit examination for the gospel min
istry ia 1870, he served as a tutor for
one year and then entered the famous
theoloirieal institute at
two and a half years. After passing
final exurtikatious with honors
i, he ae -
crpted a call to a Lutheran church at
or. Auureaauerg, iu vam niri aaouu
taina. Visiting th Hawaiian Islands
in '1884 and 1887, Mr. Isenberg re
mained the latter year to accept tha
pastorate of the Evangelical Lutheran
Church at.IJhus, Kauai. For many
years before the sister church in
Honolulu acquired a settled pastor, Mr.
Isenberg conducted it services on one
Hunday each month.1
- Oa the death of his brother Paul, for
many years head of H. Hackfeld k Co.
and a noble under the monarchy, Fas
tor Isenberg, as then he waa best
known, became president of Lihue and
Koloa .plantations, holding otUee as
