when this republic becomes truly 1 THE GERMAN GOVERNOR OF democratic all of us will wear silk bats and ride in autos. I also saw some gorgeously decor ated trucks belonging to the beef trust in that-parade, although the names of Nelson" Morris and others were neatly covered by flags and bunting probably to show that the packers are patriots. Really I enjoyed that parade. It's the first red-fire political demonstra tion I have seen since the Blaine cam paigns. I was glad the autos had signs on them tell that it was a Democratic parade. Otherwise I wouldn't have known the marchers and riders were Democrats. You can't tell the dif ference between partisans, you know, unless they are labeled. After they get into office they act very much alike. The difference is only noticeable before election. However the silk hat was where I like to see it on the other fellow. Brutalities of War. Whaf s the use of kicking and complaining about the horrible atrocities of war? Why handicap the madmen by RULES that pretend to make war more humane? Why bar dum-dum , bullets, the bombardment of unfortified towns or other awful acts of brutes crazed with blood-lust? As long as we can't stop the whole sale murder, we might as well let them go to it and make it the blood iest, damdest and most hellish war in the history of the world. The worse this war is the less fools there will be in the future who will go to war to murder their brothers and get murdered by them. You can't make murder humane. You can't make war humane. You can't make war anything less than hell let loose on earth. And the more murderously nause eating you make war the quicker hu manity will spew the cursed thing out of its system. VonDe-t Goltz., Field Marshall Baron Kolmar von der Golt2 has been appointed military governor of that portion of Belgium occupied by German troops. AUSTRIA WANTS POLAND Rome. For the time being the brunt of the struggle will not fall up on Austria, though her government is responsible for this war. The mili tary strength of Austria is now con centrated in Galicia, with the object, when the Russian forces make a move towards Berlin, of trying to cross the Vistula, which divides Ga licia from Russian Poland, and rous ing the Poles to insurrection. For years now Austria has fomented agi tation against Russia in Poland, which has become the great indus trial province of European Russia. That is the true root of the quarrel between two powers. Servia is a pre text Austria wants Poland as a buffer state, nominally independent, but ac tually dependent on Austria as against Russia.
