The .American Troops in
The statement has been made that,
following the signature by the presi
dent of the congressional resolutions
declaring a state of peace with Ger
many, the United States would to
day (July 4th) order its troops out of
Germany. There are 12,000 Ameri
can soldiers at Coblenz, where they
are maintained at ' Germany's ex
pense. Demands that they be with
drawn and returned to American soil
have been repeatedly made.. It is
pointed out that, the United States
now being at peace with Germany,
and not asking war indemnities from
that country, has no right to keep
her troops there.
France does not wish to see these
American troops withdrawn. She does
not want the unity on the Rhine
broken, and contends that the pres
ence here of our soldiers has a great
moral effect. France holds that the
United States might quite as logical
ly continue to participate in the oc
cupation, notwithstanding the end
ing of the state of war with Germany,
as in the Republican Commission, the
Supreme Council and the Council of
Charles H. Grasty, in his cable to
the New York Times, points out that
while the American occupation is
military in form, the presence of our
troops has been a political factor, and
in some measure, at least, steadied
European nations against the demor
alizing effect of a sudden withdrawal
of America from the political affairs
of Europe. These Americans on the
Rhine are almost the sole visible sign
remaining of the once promising hope
of settling the war in the common in
terest of the world.
Bu there is another side to it. The
Franch and English have been con
stantly embarrassed by the fact that
American soldiers drew better pay.
The cost of maintenance averages
more than twice as much per capita
compared with the others. The heavy
expense of the armies of occupation
has been a constant ground of com
plaint from the Germans, who say
the occupation bill which is charged
against them aggregates more than
the entire cost of their military estab
lishments before the war. The chief
reason why this is so, however, is that
the old German army was conscript.
It is further urged that payment of
the army of occupation compels Ger
many to add large quantities to her
paper marks used for the purchase of
outside exchange, thus injuring their
own exchange. These payments bring
back no return in production to any
country. The payments to American
soldiers go almost wholly to America,
thus affecting the exchange situation
injuriously. These statements are
also from Grasty's letter.
If the United States is not at war
with Germany, actually or mechani
cally, our troops have no business in
Germany, and will be brought home
In this connection the American
public is pleased to know of the
splendid record which Gen. Allen's
men have made at Coblenz. The ver
dict is that they have been a model
of what a military force should have
been under the circumstances.-Au
The Bar Association having decid
ed to limit the July term of Court to
