Frightful Moral Standing
Among Modern Nations
Prof. Von Tyne's Theme.
AT THE HIGH SCHOOL
Antagonism to Ideals of
Democracy Foundation of
Germany's frightful moral stand
ing in the scale of modern nations,
iher unprecedented brutalities on hu
manlty, and the reasons for her at
tempted domination of the world, were
'discussed yesterday afternoon before
the public school teachers of Bridge
port at the High School in a masterly
and convincing address by Prof. C
H. Van Tyne, head of the department
of history of the University of Michi
Professor Van Tyne discussed the
antagonistic ideals of autocracy and
democracy and also the true founda
tions of German frightfulness, which is
a state with no moral obligations. He
: showed clearly and convincingly that
Germany's method of terrorism is but
the expression of what had been
taught throughout German academic
and social life for nearly 50 years.
Germany's philosophies, religion, lit
erature, science and history, and even
her geography .arithmetic and lan
, guage all teach that they must force
themselves on the world.
It could be proven positively, the
speaker affirmed, that Germany had
Boston, June 12-Col. W.E. Thomp
son, acting commandant of troops in
Halifax, conferred today with, officers
of the British and Canadian recruit
ing mission regarding a campaign to
obtain several thousand volunteers for
military camps in Nova Scotia. The
campaign, which will be waged vigor
ously in New England, Col. Thompson
explained, wil sltart just ahead of an
official announcement as to the .draft
agreement between the United States,
Great Britain and Canada which will
make possible the drafting of British
subjects in this country between the
ages of 18 and 40.
It also is the intention of -the mis
sion to fill the ranks of depot bat
talions in New Brunswick with Cana
dians from New England, as many of
the New Brunswick troops have join
ed commands over seas.

Professor Van Tyne said that in
1900 the Kaiser declared, "nothing
should be settled in this world with
out the intervention of the German
emDeror." Also that the Teutonic
race believes it is called upon to make
all other races servile.
The speaker showed how the Ger
man people had been taught as a na
tion that they are a super-creation of
; mankind; that they must force the
German language on the world, and
aim tiget possession of Africa, the
East, Central Europe and the West so
as to have an empire commensurate
with their power. They were not to
mind such things as the Monroe Doc
trine, treaties and international boun
daries; simply take whatever was in
the German scheme of world domin
ion. Kaiser Wilhelm has written in his
diary, "considering myself an instru
ment of the Lord I heed not the
preaching of the day but go my way!"
Both Bismarck and Frederick the
i Great boasted of their skill in deceit.
Dr. Van Tyne said.
The speaker told of the years he
spent in Germany, sWOying under
three of that nation's most eminent
scholars, and of the impressions gain
ed while there. He went to Germany,
he said, thinking no country equal to
: it. As he came to appreciate her
government and to study the German
people, however, the conviction grew
upon him strongly, he said, that the
i content of the German people was at
the expense of their freedom; they
'were so over-awed by militarism and
In Germany, he said, the State
.knows no moral obligation. Courtesy,
decency and the spirit of humility are
not expected, unless they have eco
nomic value and pay the State.
Living among the Germans was al
most uncanny, he said, so sure were
they of their divine right and supe
riority. Their strength is a strength
without restraint, he emphasized, and

this fact the better it would be for all

Dr. Van Tyne said that America
loves success, while Germany loves
terrorism; that Germany had boasted
she could conquer the world with her
87.000,000 population, but America
with her 100,000,000 would make im
possible that cherished dream, he be
lieved. . He compared the gift of Germany
to the American government of a
statue of Frederick the Great, to the
(gift toy France of the Statue of Lib
erty, and showed how truly were those
gifts representatives of the givers:
Germany, divine right and egotism;
France, liberty, equality and frater

Harry Peatt, a member of the New
Canaan police force, is undergoing
treatment Dor a bite received by a
mad dog last week. The dog, a Bos
ton bull, was originally owned 'by
Charles M. Griebel, but had been
stolen or strayed away several months
ago, and recently returned. Mr. Peatt
had the dog in his care for two days.
It did not want to eat, but drank wa
ter frequently. On Saturday, Mr.
IPeatt held the dog by the front feet
at arm's length, to determine, if pos
sible, the cause of its peculiar actions.
Almost immediately the dog sprang
for his face, biting him in the lip, and
was frothing at the mouth when
pulled away. Later, while riding in
company with Dr. Rogers, the dog
sprang at the wind-shield of the car,
and it was then that it showed signs
of rabies. The dog was shot by Dr.
Rogers. The head was sent to New
Haven for examination, and wordt
was received that the dog had a pos
itive case of rabies. Mr. Peatt is at
present under Pasteur treatment.
