lie was a cummerclalisl and engaged
In war only when forced to do so by
Napolcoon's repeated insults.
In 1813 Napoleon's army was dec
imated by the rigors of the campaign
against Moscow and defeated al Lcip
sic in "the battle of the nations," in
which was opposed by Schwarzen
burg of Austria, Bernadottc of Swe
den and Bluchcr of Prussia. To the
latter belonged the credit of victory.
And at Waterloo Itulow wiped out
the insults and the shame of Lejpsir
and Llguy and tho French were driven
back Into France. The uttng of this
clefeut has lasted. The proud nut Ion
of France was torn with Infernal dis
sensions. After Napoleon had been
sent to St. Helena, the Bourbon fam
ily endeavored ngain to reign, but
made stielt u confusion of it Hint Louis
Napolon, after being elected head of
the new republic proclaimed himself
emperor In 18">2. He had a success
ful reign, building up tho wasted re
public which had been war worn for
70 years. But In 1870 he saw his po
litical fortunes beginning to wane,
and In order to strengthen himself at
home sturted u war with Bruasiu.
His pretext for war was flimsy, and
he played right into the bands of
William, the King of Bruasia and Bon
of the beautiful Queen Louisa, who
had died of a broken heart when be
was a lad. The Franco-Prussian wur
revealed tho solidity of the German
Empire and tho hollowness of France.
Within two weeks of the declaration
of war, tht flower of tho army of
France was crumpled, Alsace and
Lorraine were occupied by the Ger
mans and In a few days more the
Prussian King hud taken up his mil
itary quarters'in the splendid French
royal palace at Versailles. ' 1.. ,lv
And that explains the hostility of
France and Germany. Napoleon was
too brutal in his conquests. Franco
han never relished giving up Alsace
Lorraine, which is a rich fertile pro
vince 125 miles long and averaging 50
miles wide?with a population of
nearly 2,000.000.
That is one reason of the hatred be
tween the two countries. These pro
vinces wore originally German, from
the 10th century up to 1G48 when
Louis XIV seized Strauaburg In time
of peace, and those,, states remained
French territory until 1871.
It was Bismark, the iron chancellor,
who took Prussia and made the Ger
man Empire. William was the emper
or, von Moltko, the field marshal, but
Bismark was the warrior and states
man of this great triumvirate which
took the vanquished Gorman slates
and welded them into the great and
sturdy German Empire. Bismark was
cunning and cruel, relentless and re
vengeful, ambitious and warlike. But
he made Germany what It hUB been for
tho last two gonerntlons. The present
Kaiser Is the grandson of the great
emperor whom Bismark aorvod.? Ho

Our attention has been called to the
fact that there were some errors In
tho tabulated statement of the total
number of names enrolled in Ander
son county primary. Tho table as
printed was made up hurriedly and is
not official. For instance the total
given for Bclton was 445 when It
should have 342. '
There Ib some rumor to tho clfcct
that some of 'he club rolls luvo been
padded; that certain portons have ad
vised now comers to put their names

detecting ths error. We know n.th
Ing of tho. accuracy r?r the report, but
it has been currency for several days.
We believe that tho people ot Ander

and an'honest-count and we urge tho

committee to Inspect every name on

all duplications and of nil outsiders.

In the present situation, as In every

Austria a clear field.
Bulgaria, while clnlming to remain
neutral, would certainly be glad if she
could snatch the chnnco to revenge her
self for her defeat by Servia In the sec
ond Balkan war. But more important
than any of these is the attitude or
Russia, of which nothing as yet hns
been said. With Russia interfering as
the chief protector of the Slav people
Germany and Ittdy could hardly avoid
being actively involved. Without this
Interference Austrln ' can almost cer

Russia aspires to be the protector of
the Slav people' and while she hns
hitherto failed to play thnt role with
any great degree of glory she still
clings to it It was to her that Scrvla
looked for assistance when shq saw.
Bosnia and Herzegovina slip finally
through her fingers. Russia wan eager
and willing to respond, but wns In no
condition to do so. She was still pros
trated from the Japanese war and at
the first hint that her Interference In
behalf of Servia would be met by Ger
many coming to tho aid of Austria she .
could do nothing hut maintain o neu

the eternal European Issue of balance
of power Is to the fore ngaln.
Five years ugo the triple entente
protested against Austria's annexation
of Bosnia, asserting Mint it was In
violation of the agreement at the con
gress of Berlin following the Russo
TUrklsh war. Austrinkt move blighted
the racial nnd political hopes of a small
Slavic state which was closely related
to Russia.

sented to France a demnnd for r. large

the French protectorate there bad been
