and the inevitable result will be tbat the peace terms
will be much more onerous and humiliating than they otherwise
would have been.
This country got into the war to smash the Beast/^ In
the background, of course, there is a strong legal argument
in support of our case, but that is the real explanation. If
we could decide the terms ourselves they most certainly
would make it sure that the Germans, collectively and
individually, are compelled to. be good for at least a century.
but out of deference to our allies we were net as a
people attempting to set down the exact terms. Now that j
public opinion in Europe, thanks to the new relevlations,
is again setting against any softness toward Germany, the i
character of the peace may be regarded as settled.

Judging by the tone of that long screed In The Times

the fact that there is not the slightest basis of fact for

the part of the Socialists when they so to the polls on

favorably of the Socialists, for then their candidate for

A sense ot duty to dependents or a reeling 01 ouugauuu

But before these elements enter into a man's life he should
have clearly shaped in mind a goal, a well defined objective
toward which his energies will be directed.
It may mean the accumulation of a' certain sum. the
attainment of a coveted position, the accofhplishment of

Put the war on a non-partisan basis by electing a
Republican Congress. Every government with which
the United States is allied has done that, and was made
all the better for doing it.
I The Democrats who want unconditional surrender
have a sure way to get it open to them: put the Republican
party in control of the next Congress. That will
mean Senator Henry Cabot Lodge at the head of the
committee on foreign relations of the Senate. The
peace terms will have to suit that committee or they
don't "go." There is no doubt as to how he stands.
Editor George Harvey says that the votors of the
country now have the opportunity to disinfect Congress.
Inducting, of course, cleaning "the" Kltchin.
Anything less than the election of Major Davis Elkins
and the -six Republican nominees for the House
of Repreesntatives from West Virginia might
throw the control of the next Congress to the Democrats.
Remember California, also, that the Senate, now
controlled by the Democrats by eight votes, is almost
bound to be very close. The present Congress is closer
than that between the two parties in the House.
Why. Is the report of Charles Evans Hughes being
withheld? Senator Dodge says "the American people
can stand to have the trnth told them."

GERMANY began this war four years ago with the
confident expectation that it would end in a complete
tnmnph for German arms. No allowances whatever
were made for a possibility of a defeat or even a compromise
peace. As a result die German armies and die German
ruling class generally waged war upon the assumption
that no one Teutonic would ever be called upon to stand
responsible for anything that was done, no matter how
wrong legally or revolting to die moral sense it might be.
Bat it toned bat die other way, and it ought to point
a moral for governments of the future, and especially for
war colleges and general staffs, that at die very time when
Germany most needs the good will of the world a fresh
crop of atrocity stones is coming to light, thanks to die
forced withdrawal of the German /umies from Belgium

It is a pleasure to note, that in the
