Ebert’s election to the latter office in June of this year was taken to mean at the time that the Socialist minority In the reiclistag had either been reclaimed by the military government or that the Socialists had gained the ascendency. Later events have proved that the So cialists were in the saddle.

Horn with a lust for military life, imbued with an obsession of arms, he was a vain theatrical youth, consumed with a desire to leap Into the center of things and win for Germany and himself a martial glory with full stage effect. His one great desire has been to emulate the exnmple of Frederick the Great, his ancestor, and carry glory before him with a drawn sword. The kaiser Is a man of rnptd im pulses, and these often catne near in volving Germuny in serious dlfficul-. ties. His dreuin of world domination plunged the world Into war in 11)14. Upon him nnd the tremendous mili tary engine of destruction, of which he was the embodiment, the exponent nnd the leader, rests the responsibility of deliberately planning and bringing about the greatest conflict the world has ever seen. It did not matter to the world that the emperor’s share In the swift events immediately preceding the war had been obscured. The world convicted him of organizing, directing and main taining at the top notch of efficiency the great German military machine. It will be remembered that he signed the order for the Gcrinnn mobilization, and tie stood sponsor for the terrorism and brigandnge which, under the guise of warfare, ravished Belgium, laid waste the cities of France, depopulated and duvustated Servla and sank ,the Lusi tania with the freight of women nnd children to n grave '.a the Atlantic.

Release of allied and American sol diers, sailors and civilians held pris oners In Germany without such recip rocal action by the associated govern ments. There was no information as to the circumstances under which the armis tice was signed, but since the German courier did not reach German military headquarters until 10 o’clock Sunday mornln, French -time, it wai gen erally assumed here that-the German envoys within the French lines had been Instructed by wireless to sign the terms. Forty-seven hours had been required for the courier to reach German head quarters, and unquestionably several hours were necessary for the exami nation of the terms and a decision. It was regarded as possible, however, that the decision may have been made at Berlin and instructions trans mitted from there by the new German government.

Of the remaining inhabitants of the empire, it is safe to say, on the strength of all dispatches, that the ma jority has joined the revolt. Late dispatches report the king of Saxony is also about to abdicate, if he has not already done so. He is Friedrich August 11, whose personal life was exposed some years ago by ills divorced wife, the Princess Louise of Tuscany. GEN. JOHN J. PERSHING General John J.
