of Attlla whose barbaric methods
have seemed to harmonize with his
own Ideas of the civilization under the
German conception that would be
best suited to the needs of Europe.
In case the unexpected should hap
pen and the German murder machine
should overcome Europe and domi
nate the seas we Americans, whose
dominating tendency is now toward
permanent peace, would be under the
necessity of spending billions of money
in fleets and armies in order to main
tain our own position, for already the
German government has treated our
Monroe doctrine, with contempt and
if it had not been for England we
would have had to fight for It long
The acts of vandalism, rapine and
murder that constituted the treat
ment of Belgian clvllllans by raiding
parties and some sub divisions of the
German army are revolting to a degree
which staggers belief but they will
all be substantiated with unerring
certainty when the history of this
war shall have been written, and the
perpetrators of them will suffer the
withering penalty of public opinion,

at least, the verdict will be that such
power as the German army has at

armament must, if at all, be Intrusted

Seeing that there was no hope of

Ostend for London on the evening of
the 24th of August and on the morn
ing of the 25th a German raiding party
entered the town and a battle ensued
between them and the home guards,
which resulted In a number of deaths,
the details of which are already well
On the voyage from Ostend in Bel
glum to Folkstone In England there
was no time during the four and a
half hours, which It required to cross,
that I did not see from one to three
English war ships standing with
steam up, In a solid phalanx stripped
and ready for action should any enemy
be so bold as to attempt to navigate
the sea.
The sense of security that all on the
great ship felt under the protection of
the English fleet was the subject of
universal remark by the more than
fifteen hundred passengers on board,
and I for one was made to feel, more
than ever In my life before, how for
tunate the world is that the domina
ting power of all the seas Is In the
hands of a people with traditions of
conservatism, humanity and jus

they are terrorized to the point of
abject submission at the very name of
Germany, but I say to you that they
are unafraid, and that every man
among them is determined to fight
this war to victory even though It
takes years and years to accomplish
There has been much speculation as
to when this war will end and many
have opinionated most postlvely, but
I think I am In a position to Impart
some definite Information on that
.point, after sounding the Individual
sentiments and fully comprehending
the spirit of the common people of
three of he belligerent nations. My
belief Is that this war will end when
Germany is on her back and willing to
accede to any terms vouchsafed to her
by her enemies.
Those terms will largely be dictated
by England and will be something
like as follows, viz : Cession to France
of Alsace and Lorraine; War Indemni
ty to Belgium of enormous dimensions
an outlet to tho sea for Russia at
the expense of Germany, the loss to
Germany of all her over sea posses
sionsthe signing of a treaty by Ger
many providing for perpetual reduc
tion of her army and navy to the mlm
lmum limits required, In time of
peace, and a general limitation of
Germany from which she may not re
cover for centuries to come.
