German Inea Is (June.
The collapse of Germany brings
the eclipse of the German Idea of
the stale, as opposed to the doctrine
of individual rights, to which the
nation clung with hardly a dissent
ing voice until recently. 1'iider this
regime there was developed a nation
of which militarism was the em
bodiment, which murdered and
plundered, was hoed less of the rights
of the Individual and made terror
ism a mutter of studied policy. This
terrorism waa directed against not
only Individuals, hut against nations,
avuinst not only hostile nations, but
those with which Germany were nt
officially at peace. Its system of
esplomige corruption and violence
extended over the world. It waa
exemplified by the plots carried out
In thla country under direction of
the government for the destruction
of munition plants and ships before
the I'nited States entered the war
and by the effort of the German
government to embroil this country,
then neutral, In war with Japan and
Mexico. No capital of Kurope was
free from German secret agents In
the years preceding the war. and the
nations lived In growing dread of
the huge military machine which
Germany wvis building up. to the
Hccompanlment of the emperor's
boasting of the "shining sword" and
German toasts Ixr Tag In voices
which echoed around the world.
Swiftness Drama Mr,
The virtual ending of this greatest
if conflicts has come with dramatic
swiflfiess. Four months ago today
the German military power appar
ently was at Its height. The un
checked forces of the enemy had
battered their way through the
French and Mritlsh lines until Paris
was In danger and the British were
fighting with their barks to the wall
(o prevent themselves from being
forced to he sea. Ijite in July the
world was thrilled with the news
of an allied counter-attack between
the A1sne and the Marne. The Ger
mans were hurled back along the
whole sector and since that day the
victorious progress of the allies has

"Citizens. The ex-chancellor, j
Prince Max of Baden. In agreement i
with all (he secretaries of state, has
handed over to mo the task of liq
uidating his affairs as chancellor. I
am on thn point of forming a new
government In accord with the

opinion freely informed of tho
course of tho events.
"The new government will he a
government of the people. It must
make every effort to secure In the
quickest possible time peace for the
German people and consolidate the
liberty which they have won. i
'The new government has taken 1
charge of the administration to pre
serve the German people from civil
war and famine and 0 accomplish
their legitimate claim tb autonomy.
Tho government can solve this prob
lem only If all the officials In town
and country will help.
"1 know It will be difficult for
some lo work with the new men who
have taken charge of the empire,

people, ljck of organization would
in this heavy time mean anarchy in
Germany and the surrender of the
country to tremendous misery.
Therefore, help your native country
with fearless, indefatigable work for
the future. F.vcrvone at his post!
"1 demand everyone's support In
the hard task awaiting us. You
know how seriously the war has
menaced the provisioning of the
people, which is the first condition
of the people's existence. The po
litical transformation should not
trouble the people; the food supply
is the first duty of all, whether In
town or country, and they should not
embarrass, but rather aid the pro
duction of food supplies and their
transports to tho towrs.
"Food shortage signifies pillage
and robbery, with great misery. The
poorest will su.Ter the most and the
industrial worker will be affected
hardest. All who Illicitly lay hands
on food supplies or other supplies
of prime necessity or the means of
transport necessary for their distri
bution will be guilty to the highest
degree toward the community. ''.
