Amsterdam, July 16.?Maximilian Harden, the only fearless editor in all Germany, has broken loose again. All Germanv guesses that Harden is safe because he knows too much about the kaiser and his intimate ad visers. Harden has put his documents and papers in a safe place, either in Eng land or in some neutral country, and nny radical action against him would be followed by the punlication of these manuscripts. For years Germans have been dis cussing the question: "Why has Har den an immunity that 110 other journ alist enjoys?" Harden is by birth a Polish Jew and has made the anti Semitic Prussian ruling class his spe cial targets. It will be remembered that in his paper, Die Zukunft, he exposed the immoral practices of some Prussian princes who chummed with the kaiser. Since the war began he has been just as fearless. He went on from bold ness to boldness, until one day the news was cabled that he had been squelched by having him called into the army as a minor clerk. But they reckoned without their Zukunft were smuggled into Holland. They contained slashing: articles by Harden in which he bitterly attacked the peace terms imposed upon poor Roumania and scored Keuhlman, the ministery of foreign affairs, for his conduct at Bucharest. It all goes back to the eighties. The old Emperor Wilhelm was fail ing. His son, the liberal Crown Prince Frederick, was known to have a fatal throat ailment. His wife was an English princess, daughter of Queen Victoria. She brought to Ger many English liberalism and was bit terly hated by Bismarck, the Iron Chancellor, who was the real ruler. The apostle of blood and iron knew his day was over if Frederick reign ed long as emperor, so he devoted him self to cultivating Frederick's eldest son, the present emperor. Wilhelm openly coveted his father's throne and flouted his mother. When the old Wilhelm died Frederick reigned just a few months. His body was hardly cold in death before the young em peror practiclly turned his mother out of the royal palace. Bismarck foresaw another long lease of power. Then Wilhelm, who could brook no rival, suddenly dis missed the old chancellor. Embitter ed, Bismarck made himself a hermit at his country place. One of the few welcome visitors was Harden, who be came one of Bismarck's intimates. He engineered a press campaign against Bismarck's enemies and it is hinted made a repository of all Bis marck's vast knowledge of the secret =Sm FISK C0RD TfRES arc made in the ribbed tread familiarly associated with Cord Tires and in the ta mousFisk Nbn-SkidTread.

New York Doctors Feel Certain Epi demic Which Started In Spain Will Not Come Here. New York, July 15.?New York is in little danger of an epidemic of the influenza, which started in Spain and and spread to the German armies, ac cording to the medical experts of the city. While little is known about the disease, most of the doctors believe that it is only common grip, and that its prevalence in Spain and Germany is due to the poorly nourished eondi tin of the people. Commissioner Copeland, of the health department, said there is no cause fcr alarm, and that he has heard of no new cases of influenza or grip. "I think the epidemic in Spain," he said, "is a mild duplicate of the one we had in this country in 1889 and 1890, when every one was ill from grip, then a new disease. "There is nothing for us to worry about. If the reports from Germany are true, saying soldiers are dying from the disease, it means that the re sistance of the German people is low. Any disease, even so simple a thing as measles, may cause death if people are not strong." Dr. Daniel D. Hubbard, of the board of health, said he thought the disease nothing new. "I believe it old-fash ioned grip," he said, "and I do not be lieve that New York is in danger There is little doubt the epidemic is flourishing in the German armies be cause the men are in poor physical condition." Dr. John J. Hill, assistant superin tendent at Bellevue Hospital, said he had heard of no cases of Spanish in fluenza in New York. "We have not had any cases," he said. "I think many of the cases of influenza re ported are grip. But in the instances where there have been death there may be some new germ, for influenza rarely causes death except in case of complications, or among young children. "So far as the German army is con cerned there are so many things which might have caused illness among the troops, as poor sanitary conditions, bad water or food, that I think there is no reason to believe the Spanish influenza alone has caused it. A simi lar influenza alone has caused it. A similar case occurred in the typhus scare in Serbia. The epidemic stopped when the cities were cleaned up. HE WAS FOR GERMANY. Mississippi Man Gets Coating of Tar and Feathers in Consequence. Vieksburg, Miss.. July Ifl.? "I am for Germany and I am awaiting trie day?and it won't be more than two or three years at most?when Ger many will make a real country out of this slipshod, grafting nation." This statement, accredited to W. M. Wilkerson caused him to be tak en from a passenger train and treated to a coat of tar and feathers. He wan then committed to jail . jj How France Has Been Fed "Before the war, a distinguished French Officer, General Maitrot, wrote a series of articles in the 'Echo de Paris' to warn France, that in case of war, the French meat industry would be unable to supply the French' army in the field with fresh meat,?owing especially to the lack of modern refrigerating plants and of refrigerating transportation,?and too, owing to the deficiency in the national herd." "Since the war began, the French army has never been short of fresh meat, thanks mainly to the prosperous condi tion of the American meat industry, and too, to the American live stock breeders." The foregoing statement was made by a representative of the Allies now in the United States. Another representative of the Allies said recently: "that the American packers have been of the greatest possible assistance to the Allies and have, by their efficient co operation, contributed in the utmost degree to the successful prosecution of the war." , > -1' t * f # 4 C Swift'& Company, U.
