' by smashes directed against two wideK separated

Progress of the enemy was less rapid on Satur
day and indications of its final check were to be
found. The salient driven to the east n the
Marne was checked and on the west it was prac
'tically hi. Id, hut a heavy new movement was be
gun south of the Oise and Ailctte Kivers, to the
northwest of Soissons. There the foe made some
progress despite desperate resistance, thereby
nuking more difficult of tenure the already threat
: tried base of French communications. This move
ment seemed to be an effort to crush out the 1 rench
salient at Soissons, thus opening a way to Paris
by the Marne and the Oise. It is also bark of
Soissons that the railroad to Verdun runs.
It is apparent that in this stage of the (icrman
offensive tactics similar to those used during the
early stages ir beinfc used. Those tactics were
somewhat a notify in (Icrman operations, cer
tainly so in jheir operations on the Western front.

Real Honor A ttaches
NO less honor attaches to the guardsmen who
have been t ailed to the nation's colors and
to the registrants who will soon We called than to
the men who are lighting overseas. It may seem
to them that there is less opportunity for glory
when thev garrison these Islands than they would
win by going to France, but there is every whit
as much honor attached to the service which they
will render. I lu re will not be the excitement at
tached "to it. there will not be the dangert the hard
ship and the "suffering, but their loyalty is every
whit as well attested
There has been maintained here, as there should
have been and as the government has believed
essential, a strong garrison. To do this has re
iiuired the holding here of trained and disciplined
regiments of the tegular army. These trained men
are now released for training. The Hawaiian Na
tional ( luard. augmented by those taken under the
('raft take their pla es They will receive the same
training those regiments have had, will become as
strong and as efficient. The men will have to un
dergo a period of waiting just as have those who
have made up the garrison before them.
It may be the men who have been called to the
colors will vet have their chance to get into the
fighting, when thev are as ready for it as are those
they are nyw to relieve. There is no indication of
aft early ending of the war. It may be that new
draftees will in due time relieve these men in turn.
Meantime, each mav be proud in the consciousness
that by reason of his being in the service the I'nit
ctf States is able to send one more trained fighting
man to face the Hun hordes. The people at home
may take as much and as just a pride in their sons,
their brothers, their husbands who are doing ser
vice here as thev would take were they to he sent
to a mainland training camp ami then on to join
Pershing's forces.

belief in the virtue of a (ierman promise and is
now being treated like a collection of mangy d gs.

poison gas. wiping out entire communities, men,

At varied intervals one reaches the conclusion
that the acme of I eiitonic brutality and magnified
hellishnes has been reached, only to learn that
there are still worse depths of I lunnishness. Put
if even the Kaiser and his servants from hell can
evolve anything more calculatingly cruel, anything
less human than such a use of gas against a defenseless-
population, it will be lecause the hand
of a just (iod is paralyzed.
Heath from the effects of such gases as the (ier
mans are employing means a lingering death of
most horrible agony. The fumes combine with
the perspiration of the body, the moisture of the
eve and of the mouth and nostrils to form a biting
acid which eats and sears. Inhaled into the lungs,
this ga attacks the delicate structure of those
organ and destroys them speedily. Illinded. wih
the body blistering, with each breath bringing on
parowsins of coughing that tear the lungs like a
rotted sponge, the victim suffers, blackens and
dies, death bringing a welcome relief from suffering-
It was dreadful enough when the (iermans first
turned the vents of this hell loose upon the Can
adian s, , Idiers, but at least they were men under
arm- Put to use this acme of cruelty upon an
ignorant peasantry, killing off the old. the young,
the unoffending and the ones to be punished alike,
seems t,, put the sulphurous climax upon the (ier
man course of brutality.

Visiting Prince
Escaped Being
Ruler In Germany
Sovereignty of Two Duchies of
Saxe Coburg and Gotha Was
. Rejected By Duke of Con
naught, His Father
I'rince Arthur of Conuaugbt, who
will visit Honolulu this week at the
head of a British mission to Japan
might today have been the heir to a
German throne had not hia father,
the Duke of Connaiigbt and former
(Iovernor General of Canada, rejected
it when it was offered to him.
The throne was that of the duchies
of Haze Coburg and Gotha. in Germany
and it is related that the Duke of
Counaught's action in refusing the
throne was taken at the wish of bis
three children, one of whom is the
prince who will soon be entertained
The sovereignty of Saxe Coburg and
Gotha belonged to Duke Ernest, elder
brother of (jueen Victoria's husband,
the prince consort. When Duke Krnest
died without legitimate issue the sov
ereignty should have gone to his dead
brother's eldest son, then Prince of
Wales and later Kdward VII.
K.lward, however, waived his rights
and those of his son George, present
King of Knglnnd, in favor of his
brother Alfred, Duke of Albany.
It was upon the death of the Duke
of Albany that the crown of the two
duchies went by right of succession
to the Duke of Connaught. He waived
this right, however, in favor of his
nephew Leopold, Duke of Albany, who
thus became a German ruler.
The royal visitor is a brother of one
of the most famous women in Canada,
Princess Patricia, affectionately known
as Princess Pat, for whom was named
one of Canada's greatest battalions of
lighting men, the Princess Pats, the
original battalion of which was wiped
out almost to a man in the early fight
ing at Ypres when it held fast to a
sector after units on cither flank had
withdrawn under a gas attack and a
bail of Are.
