Weekk's Weather Forecast.
Washington, Nov. 9.?Fair weather
with slowlv rising temperature after
Monday as the forecast for the
Southeastern States next weekk. .
While the fighting was going on in
France our boys had all their time
occupied and their minds and hearts
were in the work of beating the Hunt-,
and making the world safe for their
loved ones back home. Now that the
fighting is over they will need enter
tainment and comforts, and this the
?nited War Work will provide. H
y?u care for the boys over there and
have any gratitude for v-^at they
have done and the sacrifices tney have
made yoir will give and give liberal
ly to the fund that is now being rais
ed to carry on this work in France
and in the camps. Don't hang on to
your; dollars?the boys over there
were more unselfish with their lives
:than some of the stay at homes are
proving to be with their nickles.
There are men in Sumter who are far
richer today than they were before
.the war began, and still they are
talking about the inordinate demands
ihat are being made upon them for
money to help carry on the war
work. A dollar slacker is more de
spicable than a gun-shy coward.

Washington, Nov. 10.?Red revolu

Washington. November 11.? Wil
liam Hohenzollern, the abdicat
ed German emperor and king Oj
Prussia and his eldest son. Frederic*
William, who hoped some day to rub
the German people, are reported te
have fled to Holiand.
The revolution which is in prog
ress throughout Germany although it
seemingly is a peaceful one, prob
ably threw fear into the hearts of the
former Kaiser and the crown prince
and caused them t?> take asylum ir,
a neutral state.
Wilhelm'II, reigning king of the
monarchy of Wurttemburg, is declar
ed to have abdicated Friday night,
and reports have it that the Grant! j
Duke of Hesse, ruler of the grand
duchy of Hesse, has decreed the for
mation of a council of state to take
over the government there. Every
:dynasty in Germany is to be sup
pressed and all the princes exiled, ac
cording to a Swiss advice.
People's government have been es
tablished in the greater part of Ber
lin and in other cities . of the king
dom and empire. Leipzig, Stuttgart
Cologne, Essen and Frankford have
joined the revolutionists and r:iac
tioharies in which several persons
were killed or wounded. The palace
of the Crown Prince has been taker
over by the revolutionists. "Long ave
the republic" and singing of. "Th
Marseillaise" have been heard in the
streets of the capital.
Friedrich Ebert, the Socialist lead
er, has been appointed imperial chan
cellor and has issued a proclamation
saying that it is his purpose to forn
a people's government which will en
deavor to bring about speedy peace.
On the battle front the German:
everywhere continued to suffer defeat
at the hands of the British, Frencl
and American forces.
In the north Field Marshal Baig'.4
forces have driven the enemy beyonc
the Franco-Belgian frontier south o
the Sambre Canal and now are al
most within gun range of Brussels
The Germans are showing stiffer re
sistance with rear guards, but never
theless the British are overcoming
these efforts and pushing forward
Large quantities of supplies, including
much rolling stock have fallen int?
the hands of the British.
Likewise the French are still 11
pursuit of the enemy but before
them the German retreat seems te
be somewhat disorderly. The ene
my is abandoning guns and supplie
of all descriptions and in some in
stances entire railroad trains hay<
been left behind. All the enemy',
lines of communication now hav<
been captured except the road leadini '
northward from Mezieres.
General Pershing's troops continue
to make progress on both sides of tht
Meuse River and the American Sec
ond Army has launched an attac;.
west of the Moselle River and gaine
its objectives. <?.
On the Meuse the town of Stena\
has been captured by the American:
after violent opposition. In the Mo
selle sector several woods and height
have been cleared of the enemy b: .
che Americans including the Bois d(
Waville, from the northern fringe,
of which the great German fortres
of Metz is only ten miles distant
The German people, for a genera
tion the obedient and submissive ser
vants of their war lords, for more
than four years his pliant instru
ments in ravaging the world, havt
spoken a new word, and the old Ger
many is gone.
From the confused, sometimes con
flicting and often delayed advice
Crom Germany in the last two days
it has now beocme apparent tha
William, emperor and king, has beei
stripped of his power. He is nov.
plain William Hohenzollern, a fugi
tive in Holland. WTith his fall topple
into ruin William's mad design to
rule the world.
Little is known of the situation to
day in Germany, for that country b
in the first days of its new adventure.
It is not clear whether the old regime
has been permanently dislodged 01
whether the new authorities, with the
unscrupulous adroitness which ha*
long marked German politics, art
merely sacrificing the chief figure
heads of kaiserism in the hope of ob
taining an easier peace. It appear*
probable that no one in German\
knows and that it is still to be de
termined which of the contending
elements will gain the upper hand.
Revolution is spreading rapidly
and from the fact that a Socialist is
noAv chancellor it may be gathered
that the object of the revolution h
not merely the quick ending of th*
war but the complete severance oi
the political ties which still bind the
nation with its past.
For the allies the problem has
changed.. The countries which fought
Germany and her vassals for more
than four years have emerged from
the war completely triumphant, but
within the borders of the countries
which menaced the peace of the
whole world stalks r< dt, famine an>
anarchy. The world s next task may
be of the former who have success
fully contested Germany's greed for
power to save her from the fate she
, imposed on Russia. Likewise help
will have to be given to Austria-Hun
j gary, Bulgaria and Turkey, whose
ruin Germany wrought.
The German empire was 'he bist
of the great autocracries whose fa!
marks the real significance of th<
war. In Russia. Aunria-Hungary
and finally in Germany irrcsponsibh
power gave way before the irresist
ible forces of democracy. German?
holding on to the last kept up th<
hopeless struggle until Field Marsh:' i
I von Hindenbur^'s prophetic word
eariy in the war. came true. The sid
with the strongest nerves, said h<
would win. It was the crumbling o'
the home front which made it im
possible for Germany, not h with
standing her great armies in the Held
j to carry on any longer.
The collapse of Germany brings
i the eclipse of the German idea of thi J
tged To-day Accords
?ctrine of in
? the natio;
tenting voic<
. regime thcrt
was devtnu, ?.mim of which mili
tarism was the embodiment, which
murdered and plundered, heedless of
the rights of the individual ami mad<
terrorism a matter of studied policy
This terrorism was directed not onlv
against individuals but against na
tions, not only hostile nations, but
those with whom Germany was off!
cially at peace. Its system of espion
age, corruption and violence, extend
ed throughout the world. It was ex- j
empliried by the plots carried out ii
this country under direction of the
government for the destruction o.
munition plants and ships before th
United States entered the war and b:
the effort of the German government
to embroil this country, then neutral,
in war with Japan and Mexico.
Xo capital of Europe was free
from German secret agents in the
year preceding the war and the na
tions lived in growing dread of the
huge military machine which Ger
many was building up to the accom
paniment of the emperor's boasting.1
of the "shining sword' 'and Germar
toasts ot "der tag," voices which
echoed around the world.
The virtual ending of this great
est of conflicts has come with dra
matic swiftness. Four months age
today the German military power ap
parently was at its height. The un
checked forces of the enemy had bat
tered their way through the Frencn
and Eritish lines until Paris was in
danger and the British were fightim
with their backs to the wall to pre
vent themselves from being forced t<
the sea. Late in July the world wa*
thrilled with the news of an allied
counterattack between the Aisne and
the Marne. The Germans were hurl
ed back along the whole sector and
since that day the victorious progress
of the allies has been maintained.
Various causes have contributed tc
this reversal. The entrance of Amer
ica into the struggle, with her vast re
sources of men and materials, i*
conceded by the allies to have turn
ed the scale. One of the most im
portant effects of this country's act
was the heartening to an enormous
extent of the wearied allied nations
and a corresponding deterioration of
German raw materials and years 01
semi-starvation assisted in the pro
cess of beating down the enemy into
a submissive frame of mind.
It is also significant that the es
tablishment of allied supremacy in
the field almost synchronized with
the unification of military control anci
the appointment of General, now
Marshal, Foch. to the post of supreme
command. Military . commentator.*
without exception lay stress upon the
importance of leadership and the
genius of Foch in stemming and
finally in turning the tide.
Other individual leaders, aside froio !
Foch. whose names stand out most
prominently, are Marshal Joffre.-who j
saved France in her darkest days of .
the summer of 1914; Field Marsha"' .
Haig. the British commander; Gener
al Petain, at the head of the French
forces; General Diaz, who on the
Italian front beat back last summer's
srreat Austrian offensive and later
tore the Austrian armies to pieces ir;
x few weeks, and General Pershmg
On the German side are Field Mar
shal von Hindenburg, a comparative
ly obsecure officer who leaped intc
world-wide fame by his defeat of the
Russians in 1914 and subsequently
became the idol of Germany. When
ron Hindenburg was at the height of
his fame, a great wooden image of
:he German hero was set up, a monu
ment to the power which is now .
broken. It stands today in Berlin (
inless the new masters of Germany
lave torne it down.
It was late in June. 1914, that the
world was stirred by the murder in
Sarajevo. Bosnia, of Archduke Fran
ks Ferdinand, the Austria heir ap
>arent, and his wife. Austria, backed
>y Germany, accused Serbia of in
stigating the crime and made de- .
nands which Serbia accepted in part.
\ustria would not agree to arbitrate
he demands not accepted by Serbia
ind the foreign offices in London.
E?aris and Petrograd failed to swerve
\ustria from her course.
Austria-Hungary began hostilities
m July 27, 1014, by attacking Serbia
md within a week Germany had
ioined her, while France, Great Brit"
lin and Russia had thrown their ,
:orces against Germany and Austria. (
?.S the war went on the number of
lations involved increased until the
conflict became the greatest in the
history of the world.
Declaring war on France, Ger'
many on August 1, 1914, threw her
irmies toward France by way of Bel
gium. Fighting for the maintenance
of their neutrality, the Belgians
checked the oncoming hords for a
time, but within two months the
Prussian armies were within a few
miles of Paris, from which the
French government had fled.
One of the vital moments of the
war had arrived. In a battle of
drastic changes the enemy hordes
were hurled back to north of the
Marne.
Turkey soon entered the war on the
side of Germany and Italy joined the
allies. Bulgaria came in with Ger
many and Serbia and Montenegro
were overrun. On April 6. 1917.
the United States unable to force
Germany by peaceful means to con
duct her ruthless submarine warfare
in keeping with international law
threw her forces into the struggle.
At that time the imperail govern
ment of Russia had been over
thrown and a provisional democrat
ic government instituted. In Ita:>*.
the armies of King Victor Emman
uel were driving back! the Austrian*
in the Trentino and on the Isonzo. tn
France, the French and British wer:
hammering at the German lines with
litt 1" apparent results.
The autumn of 1917 witnessed th<
defeat of the Italian armies and
their retreat to the Piave line.
Almost simultaneoulsy American
troops appeared on the Western front
for the fist time, while the French
and British armies were holding posi
tions of strategic importance from
the North Sea to Switzerland. Purin
'he winter of i.917-18 American ai<!
became more effective and Russia
dropped out because of the Bolshe
vik coup.
Germany, at the beginning of 1918,
announced her purpose to end the
war by an offensive in France, it
was her last mighty effort and for
weeks the world wondered when the
enemy hordes would be stopped. The
tui*n in the lighting came on .July 18,
when Marshal Foch launched the
Americans und French in ;;i> au jcI -
Since that fateful day for Germany,
the allied armies on all fronts have
met with commued success.
Germany's ultimate defeat became
more certain as the summer advanc
ed. The first break in the ranks of
the central powers came with the de-j
fection of Bulgaria late in September.
Turkey signed armistice terms tin
last of October and Austria-Hun
gary tendered the white flag to Italy
on November 4. when hostilities ceas
ed on all the Austrian front.
ALBERT BALLIN DEAD.
Greatest Business Man of Germany
Dies Suddenly.
Copenhagen, Nov. 10.?Albert Bai
ling-general director of the Hamburg
American Steamship Company, died
suddenly Saturday, according to an
announcement made in Berlin.
Albert Ballin, whose death is an
nounced at Berlin, apart from being
one of the greatest shipping men of
the world prior to the outbreak of
the war, was somewhat celebrated
because of his intimacy with the
German emperor. On all shipping
matters he was the emperor's trust
ed adviser, second only, on occasion,
to Grand Admiral von Tirpitz.
There was a report, widely circu
lated, that the resignation of von j
Tirpitz was finally brought about by
Ballin, who declared himself oppos
ed to many features of the submarine
policy, and, having the emperor's
ear, was said to have warned him of
the serious consequences of the use
less destruction of merchant ships.
This was in 1916, but after the
United States entered zhe war, Herr
Ballin had little to say and soon fell
into disfavor, probably because of his
failure to support the emperor and
the government in the policy which
had brought about a state of war be
tween Germany and the United
States.
There is a well authenticated story
of a conference between the emper
or, von Hindenburg, Ludendorff and
Ballin, in which the shipping man,
after listening to the glowing ac
count of the military situation given
by the military leaders told the em
peror that every extra month of" the
war meant an additional year in
getting out of the ruin after the
war. He declared he did not ex
pect to live to see Germany out of
her difficulties.
Albert Ballin was born August 15,
1S57. He had devoted all his life to
shipping and had been honored in
many ways and by various countries.
Throughout the war he had ever
pointed out the disaster which was to
2ome to German trade as a .result of
:he opposition to so many countries
it war with Germany.
WAR WORK ENDORSED.
Council of Defense Calls on People to
Support United War Work Cam
paign.
At the conclusion of a scholarly
md eloquent address by .Dr. S. H.
Edmunds at the meeting of the
bounty Council of Defense last Satur
3ay, in which the speaker entertain
ed and inspired his auditors by his
masterful interpretation of the duty
we owe the soldiers at the front,
with particular emphasis upon the
necessity of renewing with special
vigor and hearfelt interest the splen
lid social, mental, spiritual, and" phy
sical welfare work of the "Seven Sis
teVs" organizations for which the
United War Work Campaign is seek
ing two hundred and fifty millions of
lollars this week, on motion of
Messrs. P. G. Bowman and Neil!
CVDonnell the meeting unanimously
endorsed Dr. Edmunds' speech and
:he First United War Work campaign
by a rising vote. The meeting show
ed itself peculiarly appreciative of
Dr. Edmunds' talk and the Unite.;
War Work Campaign which opened
ap yesterday at Sumter Opera House
and with meetings throughout Sum
ter county.
With the relaxation and reaction
among millions of soldiers, assum
ing that peace will soon be declared,
ifter months in the trenches and un
3er military restraint in army camps,
and with the tremendous aftermath
of four years horrible and bloody
ivar, the -great outburst of joy and
celebration among the millions^of
peoples of the allied nations, there is
room for serious thought that our
boys may "run amuck" so to speak
unong the temptations of the times.
So that after the war more than dur
ing hostilities, as Dr. Edmunds so
forcibly and convincingly expressed
it, there is greater need for social
work and more money than ever will
be needed. On the other hand
should hostilities continue, and they
might, every intelligent individual
needs no lengthy explanation of the
needs of the soldiers.
Dr. Edmunds reminded his hearers
that should peace be declared this
coming week, that so far as millions
of our soldiers and sailors are con
cerned, the war will not be over for
many months.
The enforcement of the terms of
the armistice and final peace nego
tiations, the rehabilitation or recon
struction of many European govern
ments so necessary to permanent
world peace, and other duties, mili
tary, diplomatic, industrial and oth
erwise will require hundreds of
thousands of soldiers of the entente
for many months in Europe.
Hundreds of thousands of prison
ers, either captured or surrendered
must be guarded and cared for to in
sure . omplete capitulation of the
central powers and compliance by
them with the peace or armistice
terms. The County Council of De
fense showed its personal to be
unanimously enthusiastic, interested,
and patriotic for the First United
War Work Campaign, ami promised
loyal support and hard work for the
success of the campaign.

RED CROSS GOES OX.

Relaxation of Efforts.
Washington, Nov. 8.?Relaxation of
effort by American Red Cross chap
ters should not be permitted "until
peace is really here,** said a message
sent today by the war council to
each of the 3,807 local organizations.
"But even with peace," said the
message, "let no one suppose that the
work of the Red Cross is finished
Millions of American boys are still
under arms. Thousands of them are
sick and wounded. Owing to the
shortage in shipping, it may take a
year or more to bring our boys homa
from France.
"The cessation of war will reveal a
picture of misery such as the world
has never seen before, especially in
many countries which can not help
themselves. The American people
will expect the Red Cross to con
tinue to act as their agent in repair
ing broken spirits and broken bodies.
"Our spirits must now call us to
show that not the roar of cannon or
blood of our own alone directs our
activities, but that a great people
will continue to respond greatly and
freely to its obligations and oppor
