',ll \ Y T All FREE SPEECH IN WAR TIME Many varied opinions, front that of the man who wants to shut the mouths of all who disagree with him to that other who would Jet all tongues wag freely anrestrained. have been advanced during the past year and a half on the question of free speech in war time. What to us seems to he the most logical as well as the most reasonable discussion of it, in late weeks anyhow, appears in a recent issue of the New York World. Commenting on the suppression of certain issues of "The Nation" and "The New Republic" by the postoffice department, the World says tl at< "people have a right to think, in time of war, even though they arrive at unconventional conclusions," and continues: "It is one thing to punish utterances like those of the I. W. W. lead ers and Debs and Mrs. Stokes, which incite resistance to the laws of the country and which are aimed to interfere with the successful prosecution of the war. It is quite another thing to undertake the Prussianization of American public opinion by trying to goosestep every citizen's views about every collateral issue. The intellectual life of the United States cannot and must not be stifled by such official processes. "The American people have proved themselves 100 per cent loyal in this war," it adds, a little later. "The manner in which they are support ing their government is one of the miracles of the conflict. It is the thing which has confused and confounded German autocracy beyond everything else. The public sentiment which is responsible for this glorious support was formed before there were censors of any kind or before the postofficep department was empowered to curb or stifle the free exchange of opinion. » • ♦ This Is a large country, made up of all kinds of people, but it is quite capable of taking care of Itself and arriving at its own conclusions about every phase of the war. "We have made an end of the German propaganda. It is time now to make an end of the new process of Prussianization which is being imposed upon the country under the pretense of super-patriotism." Signing of an armistice by Bulgaria. Germany's Balkan ally, this week on terms that amounted to an unconditional surrender, marks the first break of consequence in the Mittel-Europe scheme. Germany's military might is beginning to crumble. The process of disintegration is not likely to be rapid for a long time, but there is conclusive evidence that it has begun. Some of the hardest fighting of the war is still to come, for when the actual invasion of German territory begins and the scene of war is trans ferred to German soil, the Imperial government will be able to make a powerful appeal to the sentiment and interest of the German soldiers. Be that as it may, troops who have been battling offensively for four years cannot fight with the same spirit and the same courage when they know that victory has become impossible and that they must remain to the end of the conflict with their backs to the wall. "German people, be hard!" exclaims Hindenburg. That is the ulti mate appeal, but a people that has been fed on military victory doea not cheerfully accustom itself to a diet of defeat. That was not the way Hin denburg himself talked six months ago when he boasted that he would be in Paris April 1 and that the war would be over in midsummer. Even he must perceive that it is no mere cloud that hangs over Germany, but the Twilight of the Gods. Hertling, the German chancellor, complained in a recent address to the Reichstag that in a speech some months ago he had agreed "in princi ple with a peace on such a basis" as proposed by President Wilson, but that the latter had not answered him. President Wilson did not make a direct answer to Count von Hertling's speech, but the Brest-Litovsk con ference answered it when the Germans, repudiating their pledges of a peace without annexations and indemnities, seized vast provinces ot Russia and established a peace of conquert through their control of the corrupt Bolshevik government. Czernin's forced retirement from the Austrian foreign office was another answer. But the final reply was made by Hindenburg and LundendorfT when they began the great German offensive March 21—"right on the minute," as Lundendorff boasted. For this office, the object of which was to establish peace by a military decision, the German general staff Jtad been planning more than six months. The Brest-Litovsk conference was dragged along to mask the military operations of the German government. Czernin and Hertling undertook the diplomatic part of Germany's new strategic program. While they were discussing peace, while they were pleading for peace overtures that could be considered in good faith, the German general staff was stripping the eastern front, of its effective troops, massing these divisions in the west and preparing for the campaign which was to drive a wedge between the British and French armies, roll the British back to the Chan nel, enable the Germans to take Paris and impose their own peace upon the Continent of-Europe. That was Germany's own answer to Count von Hertling's spe«ch. That was the answer to which the Imperial German government adhered until the great German offensive had proved a failure, until the German armies had been beaten back to their original lines with staggering losses, until the American army in France had reached 1,750,000 men, with 10,000 reinforcements arriving every day. until the American troops that* the German general staff treated with fine Prussian contempt had shown them selves the equal of any fighting men in the world, and until it was apparent that in the military might of the Republic lay the doom of German autocracy. Then Germany begun a new intrigue for new answers to new peace proposals. The American people once went to the very verge of national dishonor in order to keep peace with Germany. Having been driven into a war which they sincerely sought to avoid, having been compelled to mobilize f.U their military, financial, industrial and ecnomic resources in self-de fense, having been obliged by events to devote practically their entire energy to a conflict which was forced upon them, they will not be ready to discuss peace again until they have finished the job of whipping the German armies and destroying Prussian militarism by the superior might of dei#scracy. As soon as that task is done, they expect to have a great deal to say about the subject of peace, and it will be their own kind ot peace. DON'T DISCOUNT YOUR DOLLARS. "Make your dollars buy a dollar's worth" is a wise slogan for the Fourth Liberty Loan. Bankers and economists point out that soon after the close of the war and long before any of the present issues of war bonds have matured, a dollar's worth of goods, at pre-war prices, will again be purchasable for one dollar. They now cost sl. 0 and may cost more before the war ends. Dollars put away until the close of the war by the purchase of Liberty Bonds will multiply not only by their added buying power at that time, but by the increased value of all government securities. Liberty Bonds of the first isrue. bearing only per cent, are already quoted above par on the open market. It is obvious that a SIOO Liberty Bond bearing 4U per cent interest, will be salable for more than SIOO as the time of redemption approaches. There's no better investment in the world—get in on it.

Our soldiers are winning and all the resources of the nation must oa lurunea to support niem—to give them food, to give them arms, to give the wounded care, to pay them that those dependents they left at home may live in comfort, to give Ithem safe transport across and safe passage home again. No less authority than Gifford Pinchot has said recently that one third of the population of the United States is agricultural one-third of the men are farmers. One-third, therefore, of whatever •lory comes to us in our crushing of autocracy, will shine In the farm homes whose atanchness has been our safeguard. One-third of any one of our co-ordinated war efforts can not be allotted to the farmers any more than any other one share to any other class. The farmer muat raise all of the wheat and all of the meat, without which our army would be helpless. But the miller and the packer must prepare them. The banker must handle all of the war funds, since he Is the accustomed channel for our money, but he cannot provide it all. FARMER HAS TWO-FOLD PART Every mail and woman must hava a direct share of our national war loans. Vast sums of money come to the farmer. Instead of the ordinary forms of Investment, stocks and bonds, or stocks and mortgages, or more acres or a better house or barn, the farmers' money must now go into Liberty Loans. For fifty years after peace treaties have been signed, the great war will bo fought over and over again wherever men gather for discussion. The fierce light of unconcealable facts will reveal every angle of the conduct of the war at home and abroad. The finger of righteous patriotic acorn will point out every man who helped the barbarous Hun by not helping America to his utmost. The record of the American farmer has been proud thus far, whether written by him at home or by his sons abroad. The Fourth Liberty Loan gives him new opportunity to pledge his full strength toward Victory. Buy A/jjsEjsk 80/ ID BMIDB THIS TODAY xffifcy BUTTOH Don't envy a fighter—buy Bond* and be one.
