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
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
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
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
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.
