When Bernard O'Keefe's brief career !
as a revolutionary leader seemed at
an end. he naturally scoffed at old
l>oc Millikens suggestion that he'
swear allegiance to the C. 5. A. and
call upon a defunct -nation to save
his life. The fire-eating, unreconstructed
doctor finally convinced him
it was wise to take the chance, since
it was the only one left. And the old
rebel succeeded in reviving the vigorous
foreign policy of that nation .
in a manner of which you would
scarcely have dreamed.

Groat SteuuMy TOTltwrti. Sunk by a German
r-Baar. 3lay 5.1915.
'The reverse side represents a ticket
office of the Csnard Line attended by :
Death, with a crowd flocking: to secure
passage on the liner. The German on
this side o* the medal signifies. "Bus- S
inees First. Cunard Line Ticket Of- '
See. Kaiser and God." j
One of the most sigfiniflcant features )
of this medal is to be seen in thej.
group on the reverse side. To the left.,
at the back ot the people shown book-!
ing passage with Death, stands a mas :
in a silk hat beside one holding a
newspaper on which is prominently
displayed a reference to U-3oats. This I
evidently refers to the warning pub- j
lished by Count von BercstorfT in the
Xew Yorlc Times the morning of the.
t day the Lnsitania sailed from New
[ York. Tie silk-hatted man is'holding;
lup his finger in warning, but no one ,
i pars heed. This possesses a peculiar-'
iy striking significances m the lace or
all the circumstances relating to the
making and distribution of this medal.
Sofe one in Berlin either had i
j remar'-rsb'.e foresight, or very full in-,
forma'ion of -what was happening in
Xew York.
; The sinking of the T.usitcnia was
the result of a very carefully laid plan
on the part of the Imperial German j
naval staff", aided by the leaders of'
the Imperial German Government's spy :
organization in this country. Two.
: atatcmnts had been made to destroy I
j her bat her speed and elusive chang-j
es in licr_course saved her.
Had she left Xew York on her usual
j saili-.ig day. Thursday, she would liave
j reached the coast of rleland. where
| the submarines lay in wait for her. on
I May 3. So sure were the Imperial Ger:
man naval officials that she would be ;
torpedoed on that day. the medal com-.
memoratire of the great tragedy was '
struck off and distributed in Berlin,
May 3, 1915.
That the vessel had not yet been
sunk made no difference. Herdestruc.
tion was certain and a medal dated
| two days ahead would be just as effec- j
live In arousing the pride of victory J
I in the minds of the German people. ;
| Through delay in loading part of her
' cargo, the Lu si tar. la did not sail till I
