HAS GERMANY ATTEMPTED
By J. W. T. Mason,
(Former European Manager of the
New York, Aug. 8. The sensa
tional possibility that German has
begun an attempt to entice Finland
into a revolt against Russia is con
tained in the report from Copenhagen
that 40,000 German troops have land
ed at Ekenas in Southern Finland.
If the report Is true, it marks as
desperate a resolve on the part of the
kaiser as was the daring gallop of
the Uhlans into Liege to try to cap
ture the Belgian commander. Forty
thousand German soldiers in Finland
means a transport journey of 400
miles across the Baltic sea with con
stant danger that British or Russian
naval activity will cut the sea line of
communication and isolate the in
vaders. The risk would be to ogreat, and
the force itself tod small, if the Ger
man general staff contemplated at
tacking St Petersburg through Fin
land. But; if the kaiser has reason to
believe the Finns will help him
against their Russian oppressors his
movement of an army corps into
Finland becomes explicable.
Should the news be true, doubtless
we soon shall hear of a German
proclamation promising independ
ence to Finland if the Finns come to
the kaiser's support. An uprising in
Finland would be of enormous mili
tary value to Germany, but if the
Germans lost the war the liberties
Finland already possesses would be
lost as well.

Suffragettes of Chicago and mem
bers of women's trade unions are ex
pected to take part in a monster
parade for the purpose of protesting
against the war now in Europe.
Mrs, Grace Wilbur Trout is at the
head of the movement No exact date
for the demonstration has been set
as yet, but It is stated that it will be
held within the next three-weeks.
"If women had a part in the gov
ernment of Europe such a war as the
present one would be impossible,"
said Mrs. Trout
It is also planned to have the Chi
cago Federation of Labor .and civic
organizations enter into some form
of protest against the war, although
nothing definite has been decided up
'on as yet It is planned to have the
women wear white, the recognized
peace colors of all nations.
HAS ARMOUR CO. GOT A WIRE?
Is Armour & Co. maintaining a
press bureau to keep them advised as
to the war situation?
The Abendpost printed a story rais
ing the question when news, credited
to Armour, leaked out that yesterday
Englan dlost seventeen ships in a bat
tle with a German fleet
Out at Armour's they denied the
story. During the Napoleonic war the
Rothschild's had a press bureau and
got inside tips before the news was
printed in the papers.
