The Fading Hope
The most porplexinq question of
the hour is how to curl") war-like

assure pciicc to the rest of the
world *"x
mi The ])eople are- the Germans,
who two thousand years ago were
among the most dreaded foes of
the Roman armies, and 111 whose
veins still seems to flow the lust of
battle just as it did then. In
every other respect, their progress
has been marvelous indeed but
they arc still lovers of war and if
the signs are read aright, they do
not mean to give it up merely be

all the rest of the world to beat
them, we can see the danger of al
lowing them to regain their
strength. A (iermany that is
peaceable will have a welcome
place in the family of nations but
a Germany that is warlike must in
some way lie kept weak and help
This gives us a clue as to the
real meaning of the enormous in
demnity that is being demanded
If we find ourselves a little lm
p'atient with France that she is so
relentless in her demand that the
utmost possible amount be wrung
from her fallen enemy, we shall
do well to remember that she is Ger
many's next door neighbor and
certain to be the first victim of her
rage in th» new war, which to some
already appears to te inevitable in other nations would be
the not very distant future.
Other Ways to Peace
In thejnninds of some there is
another and a better way ol keep
ing Germany in weakness than
that ol laying a great indemnity
upon her. It is to lorbid the man-!
ufactuie by her oi armament and nation

virtually helpless and so would

Some hold that leniency and Chris

allies wouldfactually work the de
sired transformation in the Ger
man nature and ideals, thus ac
complishing what can never be
done by force or diplomacy. The
trouble is again that it seems to be
a case where mercy might easily
lead to the destruction of those ex
tending it and so long as there is
genuine reason to doubt the result,
