There parses from his throno under the
ban of the htrm'ari race a mun who has
carried the helmet' crown of CJerrnan
ksJierhood since 1888: In these thirty
yean he showed In marked degree every
ruse and every, quality that is hateful to
.mankind under the camouflage of a hunt
(or fame and a passldn for popularity.
As a Honentollern he was born to
vanity, personal display and the lust
for power, and whatever he did pf seem
ing good in speech or act, he nursed
tinder all the mad llohenzoUedii' dream
of peraonaWg-Kraridlzement to be sought
relentlessly when the, moment Came at
the cost of millions of German lives,
the carnage of German flesh, the blood,
the' wounds, tne ravished homes, tho
vast waited "treasure of Germany.
It Is outside the. possibilities that lie
wavered a" hair of lost a smile over
the" millions of 'lives, the tears, the plun
der, the 'destruction, ho brought about
In the. world outside Germany. That
woflhl'be too much to ask. Having
.duped, starved, decimated, impoverished,
dishonored his own people he now sur
veys" tho ruin pf tho bloody Hohen
ollern dream'.
Trained -for Varies Sacrifice.
Germany had been trained for the
useless sacrifice as a people to obey
and a nation to endure his costliest
trhlmi, and by supporting him and tho
aristocrats and militarists at their wild

the curse of the world. Truly If God
permitted a Kaiser to be. He could have
chosen no other vessel to make visi
ble the Inherent vlleness of the model.
In judging him and his place In his
tory this excess of types must bo re
membered Frederic the Elector, whom
Germans call the Great ; was just as
exceralve, just as strenuous in forcing
death and sacrifice' upon his people,
but times lfave changed. A new gos

ih the heyday of Germany's peace
Wllhelrr: fashioned a kaiser that he
asked Germans and the world to ad
mire, but ever he worked at the Hohen
xollem dream war, war for slaughter,
af for conquest, war for a high place
the highest In history among the killers
of men. What will remain of it alt
can be put under an old wife's thimble.
That he came to the throne with a
cry to the army, nourished the military
ideal, apparently lapsed into good na
ture and fostered trade, patted the arts,
worshipped science1 and made himself

told of him, but the face of the hard

Warrior Ilchlnd It All.
Behind all thoughts of a glorious,
peaceful, materially progressing Ger
many he always saw the Mailed War
rior riding forth, himself the Warrior,
the Leader, the KaUer, the Victor at any
cost. When Germany smiled at his dis
torted sermons it little dreamed of the
terrors and disasters that they vor
ttndcd. So he at last found his chance
to test It all. And from that hour In
1914 when he hurled his bolt he was
at need of heaping lies upon delusions
to keep Germany under his hand.
One Is not here rehearsing his bloody
campaigns. In one against Russia a
home revolt flung the Cxar from the
throne. The man for whom Ilusslan
blood had been shed was a prisoner tn
an hour, and the armies of Hussln melted
away before tho anarchistic madness
tjiat followed on the reaction against
autocracy. It was a warning against
all such rulers as the Ciar or the
Kaiser, ond eo remains. If Nicholas ex
hibited an easy neaknenff, the stupendous
power for 111 of a Cxar, Wllhelm II.,
under tho disguise of his theatric
dash, false glitter and occasional bon
homie, made clear tho persisting, reck
less cruelty and disregard of human
rights' and lives, German as well as
then, that underlie all pretensions to
power of a poisonous race like the Ho
henzollerns. Herein lies the broad les
son of his reign.
Never wag trenmendous sweep to con
quest more rudely stopped than Ger
many' first rush was at the Marne. Ah,
he would settle that. His eldest son, the
Crown Prince, who had for a year been
crying out for blood; waa -among the
flung back, but Wllhelm sent him to the
eastern front, where again the boy, tak
ing the command from wiser heads, led
the Germans to disaster. The High
General Staff shook Itself like a soused
mastiff, and actually warned the Kaiser
off the conduct of tho war. For appear
ances he Htlll commanded in name, but
his capacity for blunder was Inherent.
Von 'Hlndenburg's reversal of the Ilus
slan Invasion of East Prussia marked
out for Germany the true leader for the
war. Against this Wllhelm long strug
gled In vain. Was his "star'' bo dim?
Could It be done safely to him and his
throne? At any rate he was forced to
make tho change, and put tho victor
over Itennenkampf in the supreme sad
dle. Falsetto Addresses to Troops.
y Thenceforth began the hideous tragi
comedy of the following years of the
war with a really supernumerary mil
itary Kaiser, sickening under the strain
and the wrath of his humiliation and
trying to put a face of satisfaction on it.
What febrile hopping from front to
front; what falsetto addresnes to the
troops, what showering of Iron Crosses
followed. What applause he had for a
.victory anywhere! more crosses! A now
decoration went with a flourish to Von
Hlndenburg every month.

Ageing, grizzling, worn, his olden mal
adies accentuated, he became a pttlablt
figure n one stamped on the face with
the wrath of God. Thj death of the old
Austrian Emperor, Frartcls Joseph, of
bitter heartbreak, was a shock to Wll

Charles failed to mitigate. Soon, Indeed,

Kins; "by Grace of God."
Hohenzollern he was nt the start in
bone and fibre, high strung, haughty,
domineering: king and soldier "by the
grace of God." With his reigning years
came the breadth and depth of Gor
man culture, the honiellne of German
social life infiltrating his harder na
ture with their appeal to progress
and an Innate geniality. It is

which hewus born, tho dramatic, yea, the
tragic Import of his career will be
found. In studying those lines of primal,
mediaeval types, of 'imposed modern
civilisation ond their reaction upon each

must remember that the battle they
fought within him hive ranged over a
life campaign of nearly sixty years, time
for many changes and reversals.
That a mysticism, an nggresslvo re

grew upon him in the last twenty, years
of lit? rnuet also be considered In
accounting for the sum total of his per
sonality. Prince, King, Emperor he felt ' .. ,,'k...,

With tho inherited and acquired
traits of his character thero had always
been a conscious or unconscious flam
boyancy growing out of hlB hablta of ex
altation, but which tendod nt length to
become pure theatricality. Frpm few
monarchical outfits, any more than from
few republican executives, can this the
atricality be wholly absent. In William,
however. It grew apace. Just as the
