GREAT GERMAN EMPIRE
WRECKED BY THE KAISER.
The 'Wull Street .lourqnl, under the caption oD

It must strike those familiar with the national
game of draw poker that the German Emperor
is betting all he can get together on a single hand.
He thinks that the capture of Paris would have the
same moral effect upon the world that it did in
1871. For this reason his best troops are concen
trated on that single objective.
These troops, moreover, amounting to many hun
dred thousand men, have been ""directed, with a.
rabid hatred not shown elsewhere, against the little
British army on the left (lank of the allies, which
numbered 120.000 men at the start. It probably
does not number more than 80,000 now. 15ut it is
still an army. If it was bad tactics for the French
to invade Alsace at the opening of the war, what
is this terrific sacrifice of German lives, to satisfy
nn obsession of rancor which blinds the Kaiser to
the Russians, beating on the gates of Berlin?
A glance at the map of France will show that
the part which contains Paris is but a small portion
France is not conquered. Put every minute and
every soldier wasted in the attempt to invest Pari
spells ruin to Germany- If Paris were captured

dynatty, this hippodrome Frederick, this padded
Napoleon, can gamble with the lives of millions of
men as counters, better than himself, braver, and
incomparably more useful. The reflection upon
jnodern civilization the exhibit of this war of "eul
tnre against barbarism," is perhaps the most as
tounding thing the world has ever seen. The
Kaiser is like a dog with a stick of dynamite tied
to its tail. You can neither stop it nor let it run,
but at least the explosion will dispose of the dog.
From the Ueichsbanlc down, every bank and
every business in Germany is necessarily insolvent.
Her mercantile marine is no more, and her foreign
commerce will take years to build up again
"Whether she takes Paris or not, Germany was
beaten in the first week. She is beaten now, and
her true friends will tell her so.
To revert to the first simile, the Kaiser is binning
on a pair of kings, against the world's full hand.

TWADDLE" DON'T GET YOU ANYTHING.
The Europenn war has stuffed millions of dollars
into the pockets of the Louisiana sugar interests,
Every family in the country is paying its share of
this tribute. In many places in the country the re
tail pride of sugar has already advanced to ten
cents a pound.
Yet Mr. Hoosovelt went to Louisiana and wept
hot,"calding tears of compassion over these plant
ers, whom he mournfully pictured as victims of
Democratic tariff revision. It is to laugh.
Mr," Itooscvelt is welcome to the issue, and he
is welcome to all the other issues that he has raised
in his New Orleans speech- No other man ever
talked so much twaddle as he, and yet all the other
twaddle he ever talked seems like sense in com
parison with the silly speech that he made .yester
day. New York World.
OUR WAR OP CONSTRUCTION.
"Let the armies of construction go forward. As
the1 bugle call of the armies of destruction resounds
through the cities of Europe, let the call of a higher
patriotism be heard in the cities of America. Let
us build up rather than destroy. Let us have vision
to see beyond the clouds of the present into the
future which nothing but our own blindness can
obscure. In the hardships to American industry
resulting from a great European conflict, let otu
cities act as the nation's balance wheels. If un
employment threaten, let not public improvements
halt. The credit of our municipalities is sound. It
is wiser to build roads than to open soup kitchens
and the real patriotism prefers the laying of water
mains for the living to digging of graves for tin
dead. Let the armies of construction go forward-'"

THE NEWSPAPER PUBLICITY LAW.
Ita Application to Other Organ
The Newspaper Publicity Law,
enncted by Congress Borao tlrno
nso, ought to bo applied to
many other business organiza
tions. This law provides that
nil publications must (Ho an afll

tion concerning their ownership,
management, circulation, etc. A
dopy of this nflldnvlt must bo
printed in certain designated Is
sues of tho paper, and a marked
copy thereof filed with tho Post
master General. Failure to do
this will authorlzo tho Post
master General to deny tho uao

A DIFFERENT SPECIES,
A Kansas City Negro once applied for u job as lio.l
carrier. Tlio boss asked him if ho could climb a ladder.
"Oh, yes, boss. 1 sure can climb a Inddah. I'i,0 n regu
lar squirrel. "
A few days latur he was asked-to tako a hod of brick to
Hip ninth story.
"Boss, ho said, "I ean't dim
"Why, Sam M,l tho boss, I thought you told me
you uero a squirrel."
"Weil, I 'so a squirrel all right, boss, but, I 'so a ground
crshlp. All this
has been attained
by tho slmplo rem
edy of publicity!
A similar law applied to other
organizations would work equal
ly well and would eradicate
many evils, much corruption and
mismanagement. For instance,
if labor organizations wero re
quired to publish full informa
tion as to their objects and their
transactions, and to mako publto
an account of their moneys, dues,
etc., many abuses that now ex
ist would bo removed. Labor
organizations should not curry
favor from legislatures and
Congress any mora tlinn business
organizations, and they havo no
right to special exemption from
nnti-trust legislation. A labor
union Is a form of labor trust.
Labor unions organized for
honest and lawful purposes aro
necessary and desirable, to hold
in check encroachments of un
just employers, but when they
lnvoko tho nld of Congress for
special exemptions they are
merely copying unjust methods
of other monopolies.
Business should bo required to
glvo full publicity as to prices,
volume of business, methods of
operation, etc., so as to give
each competitor tho right con
clusions concerning their par
ticular field of industry.
We need publicity of all busi
ness organizations to euro tho
evils of mismanagement, and we
need It for labor unions, as well,
to bring n. stop to their frequent
nbuso and their underhand meth
ods of attaining unlawful ob
jects. A law which could pro
duce such results would bring
capital and labor into tho open
flcld and their differences would
be less and they could be settled
more amicably than they aro
