Declaration by Germany that all restrictions are off
in submarine warfare is the logical result ol previous
evejits. A master stroke of diplomacy has been made by
the Teutonic ruler.
The submarine is the strongest arm in Germany's sea
It was something new in war and by its very nature
could not abide by old rules. To give warning to an arm
ed liner was to invite sudden death, for one shot from a
small cannon is sufficient to finish a sub. Not to give
warning resulted in such terrible loss of life that those
basing their judgment on the so called rules of war cried
After much wrangling, new rules were established, to
which little attention has been paid. All these rules were
in favor of the surface boats and none in favor of the sub
marine. No rules were suggested to make it unlawful to
send out a warship disguised as a tramp freighter flying
the flag of a neutral power, for the purpose of luring sub
marines to destruction. No one has recorded how many
thousand Germans have been done to death through the
methods by which their submarines were caught and de
The methods used against submarines are not to be
excused any more than the manner in which tiie latter
destroy merchant ships. It’s war, that’s all.
Realizing that the neutral world looked upon ins subs
with horror, the Kaiser built a merchant submarine to see
how it would be treated by the enemy. The order by allied
chi fs was to sink it on sight. No warning to the crew
how could they give warning, for then the cussed thing
would dive like a whale and escape. Neutral nations
dominated by the allies were forced to refuse a haven to
Then the shoe was on the other foot. The allies were
in the position of demanding that war subs warn before
striking, but in turn they refused to warn enemy mer
To clinch the case the Kaiser offered peace—it’s true
he did it in a high-handed manner intended to anger the
enemy into refusing to discuss terms. It was a trap and
they fell into it. Had they dodged and offered to discuss
terms at length the ruse would not have been so success
Now, Germany stands as a nation in the last ditch
fighting with the tenacity of despair against great odds.
The allies have openly declared their intention to
crush the German nation, and that to talk peace before
that is accomplished will be considered an unfriendly act.
Can you ask a man who is being strangled to death to
observe the amenities and not bite the strangler’s
thumbs if he gets a chance?

Without this offer there is no knowing where the panic

SWEETHEARTS COULDN’T TELL
TWINS APART, WHY WORRY ?
ST. LOUIS.—(Special)—Miss Cor
1 nolia Howe, St. Louis society girl,
has married one of the Dooley twins
and is certain she married Will. Miss
I Edmee Anheuser, of the wealthy St.

| the other Dooley twin and she hopes
j she will marry Joe.
; Hut you can never tell about twins.
Here’s the rub: The Dooley twins
look alike, talk alike, act alike, dance
alike, dress alike. And what’s more,
the twins take a delight in mixing
1 themselves up.
l or instance, Joe used to call on
Miss Howe, while Will was devoted
to Miss Anheuser.
One night for a joke, they “switen

a> “Joe,” Miss Anheuser likewise mis
took Joe for Will. #
It was a fateful evening. Will fell
in love with Miss Howe, who thought

Will came home, and with fear and
trembling, broke the news to Joe tha*
he was engaged to Joe's girl. Joe,
with ditto on the fear and* trembling,
returned the compliment.
Later the twins broke the news to
their fiancees that they were engaged
, to the wrong twin The young wom
en agreed the joke was on them, but
neither was willing to switch back.
When the Dpolcy doubles went in
to business, Joe wondered what sort
