The President’s Note.
What at. English Churchman Says. LONDON, Dec. 25. The dean of West minster, Right Rev. Herbert Edward Ryle, preaching in the Abbey today, said: “It is our resolve, God helping us, to overthrow military brigandage in Eu rope, to rescue the liberties and homes of the desolated countries, to obtain foi those people reparation for their wrongs and for humanity lasting securities against a recurrence of aggressive vio lence and crime. “It is true that the President of the United States after two years of study of the question and innumerable notes seems to believe that the object of the two groups of belligerents is the same. He knows that Germany refused arbi tration, declined a conference and re jected every overture to prevent war. “He knows that his own coun rymen have poured money like water to assist the destitute and outraged remnants of the little Belgian people wt.ose treaty rights were violated and whose frontiers were invaded before war was declared. He knows of the infractions of The Hague conventions, which the American people have studiously promoted. “He knows of all the details of the or ganized atrocities reported upon in strict inquiries. He knows of the sinking of uie unarmea passenger snips, use me Lusitania and Arabia, without notice or warning. He knows of the murder of Capt. Fryatt, of the nocturnal deporta tions of Belgians and French into slav ery. He knows of German connivance at Armenian massacres. “And yet he is of the opinion that the Nations nho are leagued to disarm this evil demoniac of National militarism have the same extreme in vi< w as the perpetrators of these historic crimes. “President Wilson has either in a fit of mental aberration sent the wrong note or tie has entirely misapprehended „tne '.European situation. “These tilings are black and vile. The very thought of them on Christmas Day makes one shudder. Does anyone sup pose that peace would be honorable which regarded the assailants and the defenders of humanity as having in view the same ends? What kind of unity of extreme do you expect between wolves and sheep dogs over the fleeces of torn lambs? “Peace on the basis of such a hypothe sis would he only an armistice giving an exhausted foe a much needed interva for recuperation before renewing his in satiable passion for the hegemony of tiie world and the destruction of his rivals with a savage war.” Dispute President’s Right to “Abandon Our Historic Policy of isolation.” Washington, Dec. 25. Further indi cation that President WilBon’s peace note insofar as it foreshadows the entrance of the United States into an international league to enforce peace, will be the sub ject of a sharp controversy in Congress, came today, when Congressman John J. Rogers of Massachusetts, a Republican member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, addressed a letter to Mr. Lansing, Secretary of State, de manding that he answer certain ques tions as to the intentions of the Admin istration in this regard. Mr. Rogers does not believe that Presi dent Wilson has the right without the consent of Congress to overturn the traditional policy of isolation which this country has maintained Bince the days of George Washington, especially when the niomhorghin in n Ipmitiip tn pnforpp npacp will make necessary the maintenance of a sufficient military and naval establish ment to do the “enforcing.” Mr. Rogers’ view is exactly that which was stated in the special despatch from Washington this morning, as embodying thetgeneral opinion of members of Con gress who have studied Mr. Wilson’s peace note. Mr. Rogers said in an inter view today: “Mr. Wilson, apparently^ without real ization of what he was doing, has made an epoch - making announcement, the purpose of which is to sweep away the foundation on which American inter national relations rest.” Here is the text of Mr. Rogers’ lettei to Secretary Lansing: “In a statement given to the press or Saturday last and described as ‘8 official, ’ the .view is set forth that the Rresidenl has the power to commit this country tc the abandonment of our historic policy of isolation from entangling alliances without asking the consent of anyone, even of the Senate. The statement further • indicates, however, that the President’s present plans contemplate treaty alliances with Foreign Nations and that these treaties would require the consent of the Senate. “As a|member of the Committee or Foreign Affairs of the House of Repre sentatives 1 beg to propound to you the following query: “Does the Administration hold that by treaty or otherwise, without the consent ot the Congress, it has the power to com mit the United States to membership lr an armed international league to enforce peace? As a representative in Congress of a great industrial community I woulc further ask: ‘Does the Administrator hold that by treaty or otherwise without the consent of the Congress it has the power to commit the United States tc membership in an armed international league to enforce peace under an agree ment which would require us to arbitrate before a foreign tribunal our right to ex clude Chinese or Japanese cheap labor?’ ” Thinks German Threats Brought Aboul President’s Offer. Editor Brooklyn Daily Eagle: Youi editorials on taking Secretary Lansing tc task for his “on the verge of war, which he afterward retracted, were justly call ed for. But now the cat is out of the bag. Germany evidently has again snap nnci in IVA e Wllurtn^u ■foots tirnK. ably on the submarine question. Tbe President’s cold and selfish note is the result. See how it has been received in Berlin and Vienna, with rejoicing; how Hall Caine answers it from England with sorrow. How selfish Mr. Wilson must seem to the Allies, who are suffering such untold slaughter, when he writes about our neutrality, alongside of their frightful woes! Prussian domination feeds on slavery. We see actual slavery for Belgians, but a touch of it already extends around the world. We have felt it. Mr. Wilson tries to keep it to himself, but it is the crack of the slaver’s whip that prevents this Administration from showing its hand. We are not on the verge of war now any more than we have been. When Carranza can outbluff this Administra tion, the crack of the slaver’s whip can only cause another note of humiliation. Mr. Wilson’s note has caused rejoicing in Berlin-. Count von Bernstorff shows his satisfaction. Now, he says, we can have a conference. A conference with whom? The slave driver who lays his whip upon the table? That will not be acceptable by David Lloyd-George, who patterns after our own Abraham Lin coln, whose famous words he quotes. Mr. Wilson might sit at tbe table, and so would Mr. Bryan, who so quickly con gratulates him. The American people, however, will not' shake hands with the slave driver. He must step aside before his country can have peace. Germany breakB her treaties under her slave .driver’s whip.

Mr. Wilson’s note is another.blunder. It ha9 caused explanations upon explana tions with the Allies. What a relief it would be if it could be recalled, with the excuse it was misunderstood. With all his command of language Mr. Wilson has fallen down, L. P. G. Brooklyn, December 24, 1916, Lieut. wiLBUK j. carver, u. s, n. Lieut. Wilbur J. Carver entered Dec. 27th on his new duties as Censor of the German Radio Station at Sayville, L. I. This is one of the largest and most powerful radio stations in the world. It handles a large volume of messages, and communicates with but a single station, which is located at Natauanbach in the Mountains of Germany. The Sayville station is entirely under the charge of the United States Naval Department and more than 60 men are required to conduct, and guard it. Lieut. Carver is one of three naval lieutenants who censor all messages sent and received, each one being on duty 24 hours at a time. In addition to this Lieut. L. E. Lindsey, as ranking officer present, is in charge of the administra tion. Sayville is on the southern coast of Long Island about one and a half hourp from New York City. In winter it is a village of three or four thousand inhabi tants, but during the season it is a great summer resort. Lieut. Carver at the beginning of the war in 1914 was an officer on the armored cruiser Tennessee on one ,of the most re markable voyages in the annals of the Navy. This was the mercy trip of the Tennessee, when she carried $4,600,000 in gold from America to Europe for the relief of stranded Americans. She also carried from places of peril to safety zones, no less than 6429 war refugees. In September, 1916 Lieut. Carver was on the Memphis, formerly called the Ten nessee, at the time Bhe was wrecked in San Domingo harbor, 20 sailors drowned and the cruiser lost. He has written an interesting account of his personal ex periences during this catastrophe. Dur ing his leave of absence Litut, and Mrs. Carver were the guests of Lieut Carver’s mother, Mrs. Clara Carver, in Searsport. They left December 26 for Sayville where they expect to remain two years. This—And Five Cents, DON’T MISS THIS.

Not ter ritory, not greater strength as a Nation. We are fighting for two things—for peace now and for security for peace in time to come. L t the House remember that what has happened in this war—outrages in Belgium outrages by sea and land, massacres in Armenia which Germany could have stopped by a word—then real ize this: The war will have been fought in vain, utterly in vain, unless we can make sure that it shall never again be in the power of any State to do what Germany has done. “Is peace to come in this war on the basis that the greatest crime in the world’s history is to go absolutely un punished? It is my firm belief that un less all the Nations in the world can be made to realize that these moral forces must be vindicated there never can be an enduring peace. “I am not afraid, I am Bure our troops will fight to the end. If the peo ple at. home, who up to now have made few sacrifices, except the sacrifice of those dear to them, are determined in this matter, and if they believe that the objects for which they are fighting can be secured, then there is no sacrifice we are not prepared to make.” What To Do For Bad Colds.

KILMER, Lata U. S. V. j FBPRISES have not ceased in ! the surprising world war, now well into its third year. The more important of these sur prises in 191(1 have been in France, at sea. ou the Italian front and in the Balkans. In January the Germans, who were supposed to he on the defen sive in France, sprang a vicious attack along a five mile front in the Cham pagne. Farther north, on Vimy ridge, and at Ypres, Belgium, they stormed British trenches. SCO yards and GOO yards in lengtl^, While attention was thus drawn to the northern 'front the Germans suddenly launched heavy at tacks on Fob. 2‘J north of Verdun, starting a tremendous drive against that famous salient, which the crown prince originally struck at in August. 1914. Three days later Fort Pouau mout. four miles from the city, was captured following a bombardment which nearly razed its walls, '.'ext | day the Germans captured six fort hied ! French villages and on the “9;h shifted . the attack from the north to the south east. Fighting continued for weeks. The midd’e of May it was evident that tile Fren.h line would hold in front of the city itself. The element of surprise in the Ver dun drive lay in that the Germans would risk heavy losses in storming fortification's for the mere purpose ap parently of shortening their front. Counterdrive by the Allies. It has been hinted that the German offensive at Verdun was launched to forestall an expected Anglo-French of fensive against the German communi cation farther north. Such a move ment was launched the 1st. of July along the river Somme and the river Ancre, Feronne and Banaume being the objectives. Every day for two weeks either the French or British plunged forward, now capturing a vil lage, now a woods. Again the Ger mans would retake ground by desper ate counterattack. Supposed keys like Contalmaison and Combles were cap tured. but I’eronne and Bapamne still cover the railroad along which the Germans on the battle line in France receive their supplies through Belgium. At the end of two weeks of forward movements on the Somme. Uoyd Goorge, British minister of war. ex claimed in a council of leaders. “Vic tory is beginning to flow in our di rection.” Russia Conies Back. Lloyd-George evidently included in the flow of victory Russia's great en IC11JU9C8 111 UCI BUULU»*CiH <11 Bukowina and eastern Galicia. The Russians had been expelled from the Warsaw and Vistula line in the au tumn of 1919, but a considerable body remained in eastern Bukowina and just outside its borders. The Austro Germans had also left garrisons for their original fortifications there. Early in January the Russians began a drive in the vicinity of Czemowitz. Noth-1 ing of consequence resulted, but the j movement, taken in connection with j attacks in the district of Vilna and Dvinsk. in the north, gave proof that Russia still had aggressive power. "In June General Brusiloff assumed com mand in the southwest and, aiming for Lemberg, turned the flank of the Aus trian defenses in Volhynia and Buko wina. In one week the Russians claim ed 80,000 prisoners, captured the for tress of Dubno. also Czernowitz, and were marching upon Lutsk and Kovel. But about ibe time that Lloyd-George I voiced his optimism the Russians found themselves checked on the river Stok hod and on the Dniester, south. Greatest of Naval Battles. Lloyd-George ulso had in mind the naval battle of Jutland, which took | place on the last day of May. This \ has been called the greatest naval ac tion in history. It was the greatest to date in this war. The British claimed j a great victory, which amounts to a confession that the German navy is | by no means a negligible factor. The Germans ventured to sea seeking bat tle. They overcame the advance Brit ish column and were not checked un til the lieltVy British battleships ar rived on the scene. Botli sides lost heavily In battleships, cruisers, destroyers and men. In a tactical sense the action was a draw, hut it demonstrated that the German navy is not “bottled up.” Early in the spring the Italians re sumed activities on the line of the Isonzo, particularly at Goritz. In April | the Austrians suddenly began an of- ! tensive against Italian positions in | Trentino, which the latter had inf ad- ! eij May, 1915. This move was a com- j plotc surprise and forced the Italians into hurried retreat. At the end of May Austria reported 80,000 prisoners and 200 cannon as the spoils of two months’ operations. By the middle of June the'Italians had turned on their enemy, and the great offensive .was • checked. t The Austrian movement was evi dently timed to affect Italy’s aggressive movements in the south, where the ob jective of the Italians is Trieste. Goritz stood in the way of progress toward the coveted citadel. It fell Aug. 9. Since the fall of Goritz the Italians have made slow progress to ward Trieste. j Something was needed in the allied camps at midsummer to pull up wan ing hopes, hopes dashed by the aban donment of the Gallipoli expedition early in January, the surrender of Ivut- 1 el-Amara with 10,000 British soldiers ' in April, the subjugation of Servia and Montenegro and the menacing situa- ! tion in Greece. The allies’ infantry j from Gallipoli had been transferred to Saloniki with the evident purpose of marching northward and taking the Bulgar forces in Servia and on their own borders in the rear. Serious Outlook For Germany. In some respects it seemed as though the allies hail unloaded a dead weight by abandoning the direct attack upon | f-rmefniifim-xytlcx rnu„ Tiuccinm, nlmaot from tlie beginning of the war had been coming down into Asia Minor in a direction which would bring them into junction with the British column moving up the Tigris river toward Bag dad in February Russia captured Er zerum, Mesopotamia, from the Turks. This was followed two months later by the capture of Trebizond, on tile Black sea. Russia's southward march from bases in her own home territory, backed up by her fleet on the Black sea, really a strategic prolongation of her line in Bukowina and Galicia, con stituted a menace to German ambition in the near east. The elimination of Servia us a factor, which was made certain in the winter of 1910, and the certainty that Turkey could be relied upon for troops and supplies, coupled with the apparent dif ficulty of the allies in launching a stroke in flip back of the Teutonic powers through Greece, brought up again the supposed German dream of a Beilin to Bagdad route. This dream was dissipated when it became evi dent that Russia was forcing the Turks out of Mesopotamia aud effec tively co-operating w’fcli the allies at Sa loniki. The situation of Germany had a serious look ns autumn came on, with Verdun untakeii. the allies storm ing a third line on the Sotnme and the Russians displaying enough vigor in'1 their southwest to hold the Austrian forces at full strength in Volhynia, Bukowina and Greece. Then sudden ly Roumania east her lot with the al lies and, as it. was supposed, added 400,ObO men to the enemies of the Teuton on the Vienna to Constantino ple line. Von Hindenburg Scores Again. How Von Hindenburg turned to grap ple with this new foe is the most sur prising chapter in the history of the war. a new example of efficiency at headquarters and in the fighting ranks. Xo check worthy of the name was suf fered after crossing two frontiers un til converging armies met before doom ed Bukharest, taken on Dec. (i. Roumania seems to have repeated the French blunder of August. 1914, wheu, instead of going to the aid of Belgium. Joffre sent a big army to re cover Alsace. Instead of stabbing Bul garia, Roumania marched north into Hungary, a move which invited Ger mans and Bulgurs to strike at her vi tals from the south. So. while Von Mackensen marched and conquered in the general direction of the Danube, central Roumania and Bukharest. the Roumanians, who had poured over her northern border, were easily turned back, their conquests wrested from them and the entire venture of ttie last of the Balkan states was turned into a fizzle, so far as support of the allies was concerned. There remains Greece—at least the rebellious part of it—to stimulate the hope that the Teu tonic powers may yet receive a vital thrust in the back. The conquest of Roumania required time, energy and lives. Whether the compensation will equal the investment time alone can tell. The end of 1910 finds the German powers resourceful in men and un daunted in spirit. On the other hand, the allies' cabinets are reorganizing to restore the flow of victories to the channels of midsummer. Lloyd-George became British premier Dec. 7. Miscellaneous Events. Minor events of the war were the torpedoing of the British channel steamer Sussex, the transfer of the submarine war zone across the Atlan tic in Octolier nod General TCitehenei-’o death at sea. Air craft battles have been many. Derce and deadly; casual ties of all kinds have been heavy. Outside of war the old world has , been normal, with the exception of a brief rebellion in Ireland, which had been expected and was ruthlessly sup- ! pressed. Japan and Russia formed an agreement, and Japan made new de mands upon China, whose ruler, Yuan Shili Kai, died in June. Deaths abroad during the year included Franz Joseph, emperor and king; Carmen Sylva, Rou manian queen dowager and a person ality of note; Dr. Metehnikoff, the bac teriologist; Mounet-Sully, French ac- ] tor, and Sienkifewiez, Polish author. ' Sir Roger Casement was executed for i treason as instigator of the rebellion in Ireland; also Fearse, the rebel “president,” and Connolly,’ the military chief. _ l i lively winter at augusta. The Maine Legislative session is at hand.and it is bound to be one of the most interesting in our history. The law makers cannot escape dealing with several matters of vital import ance. The Good Roads contest is certain to be a big one and one in which every tax payer in Maine is interested—a mill tax plan against a bond issue plan, and the “trunk line" and State-aid scheme versus business roads over a largely increased mileage for the benefit of the farm-to-market idea. Then a budget system ia to be introduced for discussion and’considera tion from every angle by the Legislature. An attack will also be made upon the primary law! equal suffrage will have its inning, and law- I enforcement measures wi 1 be introduced. ■ Maine families wishing to keep up with the procession in education and topics of direct in terest to them, must follow the Legislative proceedings of their State. In order to do that it is necessary to have a daily record of pro- ; ceedings with explanations and interpretations by writers familiar with all the State’s affairs. It has come to be commonly accepted | throughout the State that no paper in Maine : is so well prepared in mechanical equipment and editorial staff to deal with any question before the public as the Kennebec Journal. Advance notices of all the committee hear ings are published in the Journal, a matter of great importance to those who are watching new legislation. The Journal also publishes at the opening of the session biographical sket ches of the members of the Legislature, ac companied by portraits. The price of the Daily Kennebec Journal will be $1 25 for the session. Address: Kennebec Journal Company, Au gusta, Maine.
