IN DEUTSCHLAND This week's news included reference to a mass meeting attended by eight thousand German workmen at Essen. It is described as "an Impressive dem onstration in favor of I eace and of re form in the direction of democracy .n government.*' Essen is in Prussia. That a demon stration of the kind should take place there is rather surprising. It is an Industrial center—the famous Krupp j works are at Essen There, about a century ago, was started a very small manufacturing plant which has at tained mammoth proportions, furnish ing to many of the powers, prior to the war. the big guns of modern type that were not built elsewhere. This week's mass meeting declared in favor of measure« that recently re ceived attention in the Reichstag. ft Is pertinent to remark that, of itself, a revialon of the fran iiise for the German emrire would not accomplish the reforms which Involve democratic rule.

It roust begin with the serious curtailing of powers that now lad«« in the Kaiser. It means a revolution which, perhaps, can be peacefully wrought. Publie meetings of the kind held this week in Essen were absolutely out of without ! the question an> where in Germany during the lifetime of the Kaiser and for a longer period, prior to the pres ent war. Assemblies of the sort would, of themselves, be regarded as revolu tionary, and all the participants would be treated accordingly. The war has made such demonstrations and by this time all German that much that is of high importance will come of thorn when the war ends oi even sooner. tssible. knows j THE WAR MONEY Before the war the expenditures of the United States were about $750 • 000. 00D a year. It is estimated that for the present fiscal year the amount " ill be about ten billions. So the sen ate was informed yesterday. At that hour, in London, it was an nounced by a government officer that taxation, re* - capita, had advanced in Great Britain from li$ a year before the war to $61 the present average. ' < this. $50 is collected by income tax. excess profits tux. stamp tax, in heritance a:«d the like." From April 1. 1914. to August 4. 1917, the British government's expenditure has been S?«'*. 37s.000 000, this including more than five billions advanced to the allies. The senate is revising the house revenue measure; the finance com mittee proposes to increase the con tribution that shall. come from war profits and. apparently, from incomes. If the senate is as "deliberative" with this revenue measure «3 it was with the food HU. this month will not wit ness the enactment of the govern ments financial policy. A V/AR STORY An uncanny story from the Handers field centers in Prince Rupert of Bavaria. He is rated as a fine soldier; he it was who stopped the British ad vance on the Somme, last year. But he is a Bavarian, and thousands of German soldiers who have shared in the reverses of recent weeks declare that these are due solely to the i ro verbial ill luck that has been the ex perience* of the Bavarian royal house through several generations. It is. in fnct. a hard-luck story, tragi«- ami -gloomy iff many of* its ehai le-rs. When Ludwig the Second became Bavaria's king, in 1864. he was worse than eccentric. Nominally, he was succeeded by his brother, Otto, who went stark mad; he undertook to serve during the Fran.-o-Prussian j v. ar. and he did razy things There vva. a regency in Bavaria. In 1913!

This 1 report is like others of a similar na ture published recent!'*. • Some time ago it was noted at Washington that the movement of men of German birth from this country to Mexico was giving the federal authori ties much concern.

German agents may address their telegram# to El Paso or any other American border town and have them carried across the line by messenger. This practice is followed " ith ease. The situation is receiving renewed attention by the authorities at Washington and it is understood that steps will be taken to put a stop to the movement of alien ss the border. enemies A GOOD AMERICAN Recent bulletins under a Kansas date have interested the public in the ill ness of President Taft. These tidings have also recalled the fact that he has been prominent in an organization which attracted national notice months before we became belligerent and which is known as the League to En force Peace. Mr. Taft is the president of this league and he did much toward mak ing the public acquainted with its pur poses. They have been approved by many thousand citizens. Of course, William H. Taft is no slacker, or peace-at-any-price man. or anything in the likeness thereof. Right along he has been for his country in this war; the league, from the outset, has been the advocate of world-peace plans, to be discussed and adopted, after the end of the present war. A little while ago. speaking for the league. Mr. Taft said: What is now at hand is the "inning of this war. What we must do now is to nerve ourselves for a supreme effort to end I he war by the defeat of Germany. I think that the activities of our league should be confined to stirring the peo ple up to the necessity of waging this war with all the energy possible and with every sacrifice.'' In this work Taft has set a good example; he has been talking earnestly to his fellow citizens. HERE AND THERE. Just a little breeze from the Arctic ice would be most welcome.—Ansonia Sentinel.
