Kaiser in Losing Role.
The Germans were anxious to de
feat France and England and destroy
Italy before America made up its
mind to enter the war. They then
proposed to demand from the United
Slates a crushing indemnity on the
ground that this country had not
been entirely nnd strickly neutral
Any other claim that the Germans
might have made would have served
their purpose. It wa9 a race be
tween the Germa war machine
and American public opinion and
American public opinion won and
put this country into the war. Ger
many bad lost the first race.
The Germans massed all their re
sources in the spring of 1918 and
tried to destroy the Allies on -the
west front before the American
army could reach France The
Americans got there, more than a
million of them, and helped in
smashing the Crown Prince at the
Marne. The Huns had lost the se
cern I race.
There has been another race. be.
tween the submarines and the ship
builders. Slowly the ship yards of
America have been gaining on the
"tin fish" until the output of vessels
built is approximately equal to sub
marine sinkings. The Germans are
losing that race also.
The German government is about
to raise another war loan. In
America the Fourth Liberty Loan
will start on September 28. We
have to beat them with men, we
have to beat them with ship builders
and we are about to beat them in
raising money. Germany has en
tered on another losing race for '.he
dollar of America will outrun the
mark of the Germans.

"A- Fight For Millions," Vita

sweep across the country, has seized
the Middle We9t, where, despite
torrid wta'her, it is jamming the
atres mid smashing box-office rec
ords, according to letters received
at the Vitagraph Hime Office.
Of special appeal, it would appear
from the letters, are the remarkable
snow scene in which William Dun
can and his leading supporting
players, Edith Johnson and Joe
Ryan, and a troop of the Royal
Northwest Mounted Police pit the
ingenuity and bravery against their
These letters from exhibitors also
show that "A Fight for Millions"
not only is establishing new records
in the larger playhouses, many of
which hitherto have been closed to
serials through a prejudice, which
Vitagraph serials have removed, but
also in the smallest towns, where
the showing of a chapter in the
serial is awaited and looked on as
a red letter event.
"All traffic stopped" was the ex
perience of W. R. Miller, or Iron
Mountain, Mich, manager of the

"A Fight for Millions." and his ex
perience is but characteristic, for
