ostensibly fighting on that side, the
real and unseen power behind all this
was working for Germany.
It was the pro-German party, cov
ertly, that armed the Russian troops
with sticks and crowbars for guns,
provided their cannon with ammuni
tion that fitted German artillery, but
not their own, sent them to destruc
tion or defeat, surrendered them by
the thousand, and soaked the soil of
, Poland with their blood, needlessly
The extent of this .colossal treason
staggers the imagination and makes
all the fiction in the world look tame.
It has greatly prolonged the war, cost
hundreds of thousands of lives, Wast-
ed millions of treasure and laid upon
the patient people a burden under
which they will stagger for genera
tions. . All for the sake of the Hohenzol
lerns and the supremacy of the kings.
And now all this, or most of it, is
revealed as come to naught
Russia has awakened from its
filthy monarchical trance. A democ
xacy at last, she has ,now taken her
true place with the other demec
racies, fighting the mad dog of md
narchism, now in its last lair.
They sang the Marseillaise in the
streets of Petrograd, and at the news
all democrats around the world sang
They had reason to sing. These
democrats have left Germany and
Austria the only autocracies in Eu
,rope. They have made the issue of
this war so clear that no longer can
either a liar or a coward side-step it.
Democracy against autocracy, the
people against the thrones!
The last; great struggle, clean cut,
sure, unmistakable. The world for
the kings or the world for its people.
