THE FARMER: SEPTEMBER 24, 1915
SEES MO BREAK
Correspondent of New York
Post Takes Bright View-
(New .Tork Post.)
, , "Washington, Sept. 23 Despite the
Tact that no official news bearing out
the- encouraging- press dispathes from
Berlin, has been received by the State
Department, the feeling that a satis
factory way will be found out of the
German situation is growing. It is a
slow growth, it is true, and is based
j rather on the logic of , the- situation
. than on any given set of facta. The
ground is .taken that .Germany cannot
; afford to' go to war with us. For va
' rlous reasons, she has everything to
lose and nothing- to gain.
Thus, DrDumba and . Count Bern
Btorft and their lieutenants have been
working day and night since the' out
break of the war; sometimes by rather
. devious methods 'from our point of
view, to prevent this country's becom
ing a grealf'storehouse and supply" de
pot for the Allies. If Count Bern
storff should have to retire now, fol
. lowing Dr, Dumba, there would be
nobody on Iiand in official life to pre
vent the Allies from annexing the
United States, as a whole in their
financial and commercial, campaigns. -'
Count Bernstorff ; is one who must
. j see with perfect clearness how disas
! tro us, either the breaking oft ofdiplo
' matic1 relations or the declaration of
war would be. ' Supposing, for in-
f stance, that, war were declared A
I high financial authority here suggests
' that the first step President Wilson
i might take would be to issue a brief
,i statement, saying that it was the pat-
i riotio duty of every American to help
! the Allies by subscribing to their bond
f issues.' A loan of a, billion - dollars
would be subscribed within '1 2 hours
j of such- an appeal from- the ; white
t House, ,&nd it would only, be one of
several; -.When it is. considered ; that
; such .German . newspapers as . ' the
Frankfurter' ZeUung are openly say-
I ing that Germany expects' to win the
I war by 'standing the ' economic and"
financial strain better than any, of its
I rivals, .the results of such an action
by the United States would be far
I reaching. Indeed, and infinitely better
' than the supplying of. an army of 500,-
000 men, plus the loaning 'of all the
submarines and, torpedo- craft which
our navy possessesl't' i"-; J ,:
' 5-As the Germans here are convinced
i or pretend to be, that they would have
j won the way long ago if .It had not
; been for. American munitions, it is ob-
vious Jthat by their own' reasoning, an
enormous'' increase - of '- our " output
' ought td make for German-defeat. It
is1 not possible to- ascertain here what
1 the government would do in the event
! of war, 1 but it is not believed that it-
j would 'find It necessary by any. means
to keep all its ammunition products -t
' home. , -x'' ; ! - .- 7
' Grrmany Stfll Wants Moral Support.
Then there is the moral Influence Of
the United States.' f The Germans still
' want this, despite the' great change in
, feeling; towards tis 'since the beginning
' of .thenar., when there-was nothing .in
Germany too good for the Americans,
'and every possible . courtesy and con.
1 federation . was- extended : to those in
Germany.?' ' While the German news
'. papers and officials profess to be cer
tain that they are going to win the
. war, as they are bound tofc In order, to
keep up rthe spirits of the people, down ti
, in their hearts they know that dereat
i J nof" an- impossible thing. . ' If it
should come,- they want the influence
of the United States, if it is to be had,
in the peace negotiations, wr1, at ieast,
that part of it which la now active in
support of their cause. , .
The Gferman-Americans who ' have
"been such, active propagandists : for
the German cause are a considerable
' asset which will be entirely . lost if
communications are -cut. Thus,' they
have subscribed to the ' $10,000,000
loan placed last -fall,- and wilfrbe the
chief subscribers; Jf,4nc-t the only
ones, to the pew; loan which is now
tclng advertised by thes Staate-Zei-tung.
- Again, they have contributed
largely! to relief funds. "Finally, the
' German government docs not want to
have them made anti-German by a
warrwith. : us, because- it hopes that
many ' of these ' German-Americans,
.particularly the more than 60,000 un
naturalized Mnen of military age esti
mated by1 the ; German General Staff
to be living here, will return to Ger
many nd take some of the places
made Vacant in . Germany's economic
life byithe bullets of the Allies. - :
Need for Money ; Alter War. ,:
German financiers and economists
must also be thinking of what will
be Germany's position, at the close of
the war, even if they win. ; It will
need very large sums ?of money 'for
reconstruction and new develdpnwnti
at ' home, and for instance, the rees
tablishment of its ' pooitlon 'upon the
seas, , If the United States stays at
peace, it will be the only .country in
the ; world from which money can
be obtained on a. large.. scale,. Ger
many wishes to be in line for some
of that money.. Moreover, it .will be
a long time before it can trade. nor
mally with Its - present enemies.- All
the- more reason, .therefore, , for" it to
retain the American market without
any more Ill-will towards things Ger
man than exists now. It must look
to :' North -and South America as the
beet place for trade when - hostilities '
-are over. i ?-.' -vC-!f
Then there is the effect at home,'
with -the United States would s be es
pecially discouraging just now; when
a large section of the German people
is beginning to count the cost of the
struggle. The determination to win
is still there, and the nation is of
course buoyed up by the Russian suc
cesses. But in their hearts they
know that the general staff has fail
ed in' the west. They know that their
policy in Belgium has alienated the
rest of . the world , and the terrible
death-lists are beginnin.gr to hurt more
and morej A break with the United
States could hot fail to dampen the"
Finally, it . must be remembered
that the Prussian v bureaucrat is an
exceedingly arrogant person, quite
willing to strike sharply and quickly
if he wants a break. Those who are
familiar with the methods of the mil
itary' autocrats of the German empire
know that if they had not cared
whether they had war with us or not,
they would have shown It unmistak
ably by word and deedi They may
feel that way now, but so far, at least
the civilian portion of the government
has kept the upper hand and refused
to allow the militarists openly to fling
away our friendship. The best augury
for peace is that we are at peace.

ment can gloss over and suppress
much and thus mould public opinion
to its own desire. But the day of
reckoning must, eatne, the day when
the newspapers can review the events
of the war and free speech is restored

be asked some searching questions as

that everything is for the best. It
; will be asked for instance, why trou

whole history of the diplomacy of the
;. war is some day going to be reviewed
and scorchingly so, by the German
people. . Moreover, the Kaiser him
self is certain to ask some questions.

from reports, for repairing the waste

for strengthening the nerves., ' This
remarkable preparation is called Bar

assimilative elements of acknowl

this preparation, which is endorsed

and the additional fats that thin
people need; are thus provided and
