decadence is none too strong a word. The Aus
\n offensive has failed as no offensive has failed
7 the entire history of the war. It has become a
?. rtion that a properly .. jnceived offensive can
*.ys make initial gains. Every considerable
?-rust in the war has won substantial terrain in its
: ? ?: few days. The armies on the defensive have
tccepted these losses as inevitable, and have re
? <1 for counter attacks, for the creation of jagged
-?j-i-nts into which the enemy thrust would spend
1 force without consolidating its gains or reach
the foothold for a new spring.
The Anstrians have signally failed to make even
initial gains which might be expected as a
t*r cf course, and to which, according to the
?c nrrntions of modern warfare, they are justly en
Jed. Thei: attack has been feeble, weakly
cited, flabbily done. Two years ago in the

As to the U-Boat.
The cunning but transparent fashion in which
the Berlin bureau of enemy psychology ia using
the recent submarine flare-up on our. Eastern coast
is exposed in an effective way by the New York
Times, which is the real watchdog on. this side of
the water for all the sinister nuances and twists
taken by Hun propaganda.
What could be more ridiculous, asks the Times,
than the asseveration of one sheet that "our sub
marines are delivering decisive blows to French
hopes by checking the delivery of American sol
diers and supplies!" With such fustian stuff is
the courage of the sorely tried civilian population
kept up. But, after all, does it have that effect?
Between the lines may be read the consciousness
of the writers that, while the censor is heeded,
they are imposing upon no one except, perhaps,
the aged and half-witted. The war has gone on
for nearly four years, and it is no longer easy to
deceive a distressed and disillusionized people.
Many of them?the number is legion?have had
friends and relatives in the United States; others
have lived in this country; and they are not alto
gether ignorant of the naval resources of America.
It must be generally known throughout Germany
that the U-boats have never chccked the transpor
tation of British and Canadian troops to France,
and it would therefore seem to be a waste of print
er's ink to endeavor to persuade the German people
that the "delivery" of American troops is seriously
interfered with by all that the admiralty can do.
What a dismal, blood-and-thunder threat it is
to say th^t the German submarines on this
side of the Atlantic "will make the marrow in
Wilson's blood run cold!" There is foolish talk
of she'lipg citics, a game which the Germans never
found worth while on the Kent or Yorkshire coast,
where many towns come down to the sea; and
there is a dreadful hint of havoc from the air.
The German press bullies will find themselves
answered by a Swiss paper, the National Zcitung,
of Basle, which takes an intelligent view of the ill
advised adventure in the Western Atlaniic. "The
submarine campaign on the American coast," it
says, "will, like all other similar undertakings, end
with disappointment on the part of the originators.
American hatred will be increased, and the war
against Germany will now become a matter of
personal importance for every American." To such
an extent, indeed, that pockets'are being emptied
and bank balances raided to swell Red Cross re
ceipts and to buy liberty bonds and war stamps
until, to use the phrase of the hour, "it hurts."
Are Yon a Loafer?
By loafer we are not rcfcrrine to those unde
sirable citizens who do not work. We have in mind
another class of undesirables, which Food Admin
istrator Hoover rightly names "War Bread Loafers."
These are persons who eat more tnan a pound
and a half of wheat per week. They eat it in
bread, pies, cakes, in cereal form and in puddings.
These loafers consume more than their allotted
"loaf of wheat flour." By thus doing they aid the
Kaiser and steal bread from the mouths of hungry
women and children of Great Britain, Belgium,
France and Italy?our war helpers.
But bccause they arc sly and deceitful it is hard
to catch these lcafcrs. Apparently the only thing
loyal Americans can do is to eat less than their
wheat ration to balance the loss occasioncd by the
selfish loafers.
Has word of the new tax law yet reached the
profit-ears?
"Me und Rot" will make his next "drive" to his
own funeral.
The only future advances the Germans can make
will be peace advances.
You notice there's nothing backward about the
Boys at the Front. W~tch them retreat toward
Berlin!
When Uncle Sam "puts something across" it's
usually pretty good. Take a squint at' the khaki
clad lad for example.
If you have A Flat it will only B Natural that

Loyal Voice of Minnesota.
The Republicans of Minnesota come forward
with a significant and ringing declaration of loyalty
and patriotism by renominating Governor Burn
quist and defeating for renomination Representative
Lundeen, who has opposed the war and the draft.
Governor Burnquist's competitor was put for
ward by what is known in the Northwest as the
Nonpartisan League, and was under suspicion of
disloyalty. It was a straight contest on the issue
of loyalty, the Nonpartisan League being so much
under distrust by the local people that it was not
permitted to hold meetings in many places.
The defeat of Lundeen is even more significant.
His record is not only against the war but against
war measures after war was declared. He would
have repealed the selective draft law, and he re
lied for his support upon the Nonpartisan League
and the Industrial Workers of the World, but he
misunderstood the temper of the people.
These results in a State with so large a natural
ized population a's Minnesota are a striking demon
stration of Republican loyalty and gratifying to
every loyal citizen. No disloyal man can hope to
be on the Republican ticket this year, or any year.
?Philadelphia Evening Telegraph.
The Call of the West.
There's a land that I love in the far away West,
Where hearts are golden ahd true;
And the sun glides away at the close of the day,
Leaving skies of azure and blue.
The old moon shines o'er the green waving fields.
As the wind gently sighs on its way;
With a kiss to the night in the pale moonlighf.
Lulls to rest at the close of the day. ,
There hearts that are weary from toils of the day
Find rest from their worries and care;
As they list' with delight to the murmur of night,
Borne in on the sweet summer air.
Yes I long for that land where man meets man,
With a friendship lasting and trap;
And a handgrip of steel, a smile that is real,
1 wast to go back, don't you?

Germany's man power, which seems
to have come from no one know*
where, in view of the many disas
trous conflicts (she has been in in
this war, has been the overwhelm
ing mystery.
Generals an.l statesmen have com
mented on It, but few explanations
??f a logical rature have boen ef
fered. All were puzzled, but none
seemed able to nrofTer any serious
explanations of how it had been
brought about.
I>r. C. D. 1'ssher, a Massachusetts
man who was long n resident of
Turkey and who is an authority on
trar.s-caucassian affairs, told Senator
Hitchcock, of the Senate Foreign Re
lations Committee, however, some
thing which may throw considerable
light on the matter. Certainly It is
one of the new and unusual state
ments to be .heard in this respect
and it is ?o logical that it impresses
us considerably.
Dr. I'se'.ier's daughter*, who were
friends of Gen. von Hindenburg's
daughters, v'-ltel them in the year
1S13. several months before the Eu
ropean atta..- broke out. Gen. von
Hin-lenburg told them that for
the past twenty years Germany had
been syst< matically deceiving the
world on her vital statistics - nil that
even then <1913) Germany was sup
posed to have only fW.mio.boo, whereas
she really had over 9",000,000.
Futthermore. <he general stated that
the recorded 25 per cent illetitimaU
tioportion of children born in the
empire was really a much too lo?
fixure and that if the real figures
were known it would be surprislns
to the world.
The general asserted (hat fatherless
waifs were taught to look upon Ger
many itrelf as their principal parent,
to whom they owed their all an 1 for
whom no sacrifice was too great
to make. This spirit, thus incul
cated into the children, both legiti
mate and Illegitimate, the general
boasted, coui-l he relied upon to in
spire the Geman peopl In the event
of war. He felt that It could be
utilized to the utmost by Father Wit
helm, and that the enemies of tlia
country wouid feel It if there ever |
c.ime a time to draw the sword.
These statements brought direct
from the household of the favored
general of William the Nut are, of
course. Impressive If It is true thM
Germany had 22.000.000 mors people
five years ajto than the world knew
about we may account in that popu
lation alone for an army of con
siderable str.-i.gih. And this is not
to mention ihc army which would
como from the 6S.000.M0 people whi-'i
Germany told the balance of 'he
world she had.
National deception of this charac
ter condemns itself, of course. It
w 11 probably pass away as the ideals
of the present German Knpire pass
away. Th v.oiM certainly can have
no use for such fraud-for when It
is practiced the way the Cermans
iracliccd it, il means only one thing.
s>*d that is war to the bitter enl.
"Are there elements of strength
in Theodore Roosevelt?" we were
asked yesterday by a Republican I
who is just beginning to find him
self agreeing with some of the
things T. R. says.
We responded without reserve to j
our friend: "Indeed there are?In
fact, one element which America is!
bound to respect more and more
as time goes on.
"This is his consistency. He has
been an opeu and fearless advo
cate of unpolluted Americanism
ever since we first met him in pub
lic life. He has been standing
sturdily for a splendid, adequate
American army all that time and he
has spoken to more people, perhaps
than any other one man for more
years on the need of preserving our
national honor in a virile way and
with the virile things by which
honor is preserved. He has been
bold In his declarations and defiant,
sometimes, but he has always been
of that mind. And he Is one of the
very, very few great men of the
nation?certainly among our Presi
dents "and Presidential seekers?who
baa not had to change his mind
most pronouncedly In this respect.
The courage he exhibited In this
respect Is gaining him friends in
this nation now?and the people are
beginning to see that his consis
tency was born of farsightedness
and a knowledge of mankind,
rather than a desire to initiate po
litical Issues or to force upon the
people something which would em
barrass rather than help them," we
concluded.

OPHELIA'S SLATE.
.?fpccial of Tl?e Washsagttxi Henld.
? New York. June 19.?It is difficult to
! excite New York. When the order
came to "dosc t!:e dims" to forestall
ja posible Hun boinbirg expedition I
failed to find a person?save news
stand Kiii?who showed the slightest
nervous net-s.
The order wss heard on Broadway
I at thf bu^y 5 o'clock period?the hour ,
when telephone booths are at a prem- '
! ium and when the cocktail shakers
are white with frost.
Under the hotel canopies the curb- j
stone comedians were as facetious as
ever. The c horus g?rl scurried to her
appointment for a terrapin dinner to
be ready to recite her deathleas line:
"Oh. girl*! Here comes the prince"*
Taxicab pirates shouted airy per*i
I fiaso to fallow pirates as they Jock
(cyed in and out th maize of traffic
and when they doubled on the trail
of an amazed countryman shouted
tbeir stock phrcie: "How do you like I
the city?'* with the same old enthus- !
i lasm.
I When groups stopped and scanned
j the skies ftr a possible bomber they
I did it with as much seriousness as a
, circus clown and always some joke
was fashioned out of the tense sit-'
uaticn.
Tne roof frardens were dark, but
crowds vere there to see what was
going to hap*>'-n. And orchestra play
ed in the dnrk and fox-trot*.*rs trot
ted in the dark?weaving an lrnova
tlon out of an impending disaster.
Crowds flocked to Broadway a*.d
tl.?? subway trains rolled into every
station with sardine-like loads. In
the vaudeville houses, the romedians
had their little japeries about the pos
sible bombing and the audiences 1
laughed.
Around the news bulletin board*
j th<* crowds were thick as Hies at
molasses time waiting for any ink- j
j ling o' news. To a casual observer!
I1' \*ould seem that, to put it grue
I soineiy. X w Yorkers wanted *"o be
! in i?t the death." They wanted to ,
! see what it looked like to have a city I
J bombed. But back of it all wa< a '
(certain tautness ready at the sloht- j
est spark to galvanize into action.
