J ' Genua ny was officially nt peace. Its
i system of espionage, corruption and

HJf 'aS exemplified by I lie plots carried
Hf' nut in this country under direction of
( the government for the destruction of

United States entered the war, and by
H1 jL the efforts of the German government
Hl' to embroil this country, then neutral in
war with Japan and Mexico. No capi-
' tal of Europe was free from German
'j secret agents in the years preceding
i the War, and the nations lived In grow
Jng dread of the huge military machine
" which Germany was building up, to the
i accompaniment of the emperor's boast-

I ,' End of The War.
, , The virtual ending of this greatest
nf conflicts has come with dramatic
; , pwlftness. Four months eo today the
f German military power apparentlv was
t, ' at its height. The unchecked forces of
I the enemy had battered thoir way
" through the French and British lines
J ' unt11 Paris was in danger and the
British were fighting with their backs
to the wall to prevent themselves from
r 1 being forced to the sea. Late in July
tho world was thrilled with the news
' of an allied counter-attack between
the Aisne and the Marnc. The Ger-
'ans were hurled back along" tho
whole sector and since that dav the
ti I victorious progress of the allies 1ms
' , Dccn maintained.
i,l Various causes have contributed to
j , ,h,s reversal. The entrance of Amer
ica into the, struggle, with her vast
jj' resources of men and materials, Is
Hf conceded by the allies to have turned
HL l"e scale. One of the most important
HL'i effects of this country's act was the
.H heartening to an enormous extent of
: 'he wearied allied nations and a cor-
Hii I responding deterioration of 'German
n f morale. Exhaustion of German raw
L I material and years of semi-starvation
,r J assisted in the process of beating down
j ! the enemy to a submissive frame of
C( mind. It is also significant that the
tw establishment of unquestioned allied

'j! ronized with the unification of'mili-
Oj tary control and the appointment of
P general, now marshal, Foch to the
Hfrf poat of supreme command. Military

In the north Marshal Haig's forces
had driven the enemy beyond the
Franco -Belgian frontier south of the
j Sambre canal and now arc almost
within gun range of Brussels: The

tance with rear guards, but neverthe

efforts and pushing forward. Large
quantities of supplies, including much
rolling stock, havo fallen into the
hands of the British.
I Likewise the French were still In
'pursuit of the enemy, but before them
the German retreat seemed to be
somewhat disorganized. The enemy
was abandoning guns and supplies of
all descriptions, and in some instances
entire railroad trains were left behind.
