It was dated at Berlin and signed by Gertrude Baeumer and. Alice Solorunn for the "national council of women at Ger many." The appeal to Miss Addams was from Anita Augsburg at Poz.

Dream Cf World Conquest Ends Defeat and Revolut.on—Flight From Justice of Criminal Against Civilization. By J. D. SHERMAN. Peace! The greatest war of ull his tory is over. The armistice asked for by Germany has been signed. This means no less thun "unconditional surrender." l-'or the terms of that armistice deprive Germany of the means of resistance. Germany must accept whatever peace terms the allies dictate. The kaiser—Frederich Wilhelm Vic tor Albert, Emperor Wilhelm II Î He Is a fugitive lu Holland from Justice— the Justice of his own people us well ns of the civilized world; the red Hug flies over the throne he wus com pelled to abdicate. His fate hangs In the balance. If extradition for pun ishment Is demanded, his fute lies with Holland. The great war begun June 28, 1914, with the assassination of the Austrian Archduke Fruncls Ferdinand in Sara jevo, Bosnia, by Serbians. This was the beginning, becuuse civilization holds the kaiser guilty of seizing it ns a pretext for the world war which he hud long been secretly planning to carry out his purpose of world con quest. He and his tremendous war machine were ready, impatient, eager for action. Here was the program, us the kaiser planned it: He would force Austrla-Hungury, his ally and practically his vassal, into war with Serbia. Russin would rush to the defense of Serbia. Of Russia he had no fear, for he well knew that German Intrigue had already prepared the way in ad vance for the ruin of the unhappy land of Czar Nicholas. France, he knew, would support Russia. France—she was really his Immediate object. Ever since 1870 Germany has been preparing to go back to France. Why? Because Ger many failed to beggar France by the stnggerlng Indemnity of 1870, because she then overlooked the coal and iron deposits of northern France, and be cause she hated France and the French, root, stock and branch. And the kaiser knew also that France was not ready for a death grapple with Germany. Great Britain, he had made himself believe, would remain neutral. That would be well, for he wanted to deal with Great Britain later. Anyway, her army was small. As for America—she would not fight and could not if she would. So his schedule, arranged to the day and hour, called for his triumphant entry Into Paris September 2, A. D. 1014. Then, with a huge French in demnity and control of the iron and oonl regions of Meurthe-et-Moselle and Lens, he would sit back, make new war preparations and get ready to conquer Great Britain. Later on, at his leisure, would come the third war and the subjugation of -the United States ! War of Frightfulness. So, posing before the world as an advocate of peace driven to war in de fense of his fatherland, the kaiser went his secret, devious way to war— to the war of deliberate and calculated frightfulness which, under the guise of warfare, despoiled Belgium ; laid waste northern France, depopulated Serbia ; shot the English nurse, Edith Cavell ; sank the Lusitania with her freight of women and children ; mas sacred, ravished and enslaved non combatant civilian populations—fright fulness which hns caused more than 25,000,000 casualties aud the expend iture of billions upon billions of money -frightfulness which lnsteud of fright ening the world Into submission has arrayed in arms against her 22 civi lized nations — frightfulness which now makes the name of Germany a household execration among most of the peoples of earth. At first the kaiser's program went jslong without check or pause. July <28 Austria declared war on Serbia IRnssla went to the aid of Serbia. The pother nations promptly fell Into Hue, Declarations of war came thick and ■fast. By August 4 the stage was all set foi actual fighting. August 5 the Germans and Belgians fell to on the Belgian frontier. The German march to Paris was on. But, as everybody knows, Wilhelm ,H did not enter Paris In triumph September 2. Why? Because little jBelgtum, martyr Belgium, saved Purls. 'She fought. Her brave little array «lid not last long. But It lasted long enough to give the French time to "dig In." The Germans thereupon found the road to Paris a series of trenches that must be taken one by one. The schedule was soon hopelessly behind time. Likewise the heroic resistance of Belgium brought Great Britain forth with Into the war. And though the British standing army was not large, It went to the front, died In the last ditch and still further delayed the German march to Paris. Moreover, Great Brit ain's colonies from all the seven seas went harrying to the front. And Great Britain's Seat promptly forced the Ger oft of er an _ KAISER WILHELM ABDICATES __ „i«ar of German merci ridpptog. ,iuih cflrry !"

But the Ger mans were still 05 miles from Purls. Hay 7, 1015, the passenger liner Lusitania wns torpedoed without warn und sunk by a German submarine oft the coast of lrelnnd. This outrage gainst Immunity horrified civilization, rumny, however, celebrated the sinking. To the world she sought to defend her action by asserting that the tisltunla wus urnted aud that she car ried munitions of war. She was not armed and site did not carry munitions of war Many Americans felt there after that the entrance of the United States into the war was inevitable. February 22, 1010, the German crown prince's army began the attack on Ver dun which was to blast u way to Paris. he bombardment of Verdun was the heuviest artillery fire of the war. was here that the French said They Shull not pass." And the Germans did not pass. The French saved Verdun by commandeering prac tically ever motor vehicle In Paris and rushing reserves to the great fortress. The devotion of its garrison, the In tensity and persistence of the German attack and the dramatic deliverance have made the name Verdun known the world over. June 5 Lord Kitchener, the British ar hero, was lost on the British cruis er Hampshire, together with most of the crew. He was on a secret mission for the allies. It was afterward charged that he wus betrayed by the Russian czarina, who furnished the in formation which led to the sinking of the cruiser by a German submarine. July 9 the German submarine Deutschland arrived in Baltimore. She carried a valuable cargo and took valuable cargo back to Germany. She claimed to be a merchant vessel und was treated as such by the United States. The main purpose, doubtless, was to impress America with the Ger man submarine; the sinking in Octo ber by German submarines of six mer chant vessels off Nuntucket, Mass., was presumably part of the same plan. Germany was getting ready for her forthcoming announcement of unre stricted submarine warfare. September 14 the British introduced into war a new engine of destruction— the "tank." In brief it is a heavily armored body, armed with guns on a caterpillar" instead of wheels. It can thus travel over almost any sort of ground and crush its way through most obstacles. 'The caterpillar tractor is an American Invention, originating in Pçoria, 111. ; the adaptation of harm less tractor machinery to a destructive war engine was done in secrecy by an Englishman. The tank proved a genu ine surprise and has played no small part in the war, together with lighter and faster tanks called "whippets." The Germans also soon produced tanks, but apparently have never been able to hold their own with those of the allies. One of the most strlk lng exploits of the war was the ex ploit of an American sergeant who rode into action perched on the top of an American tank. x Collapse of Russia. T)ie close of the year 1916 was mark ed by the resignation of Premier Her bert Asquith of Great Britain and the acceptance of tlie premiership by David Lloyd George ; a new cabinet in F ranee and a new commander in chief, General Nivelle; the practically com plete defeat of the armies of Rou mania, which had joined the allies, and peace proposals from Germany to the allies through the United States. Things were going well with Germany and she wanted peace on terms of her own making. The spring of 1917 saw the collapse Russia, a collapse undoubtedly alliance with for defense and lll>£ fen.se it was not until May .hat she got into the war and then on | „ *. .m-, . w«*-* | •s.

March 22 America recognized the new Russian government a repub lic. Since then Russia has been a chaos. Russia is one of the big prob lems confronting the allies. They can presumably put an end to the reign of anarchy, murder and pillage; the re generation of the nation Is n tremen dous undertaking. October of 1917 was marked by the collapse of the Italian Isonzo front This collapse was also due to German propaganda and Intrigue. Taken alto gether the year 1917 was not one of cheer for the allies. America Goes In, And yet the turning point of the war was reached In 1917. For the United States had entered the great world conflict. Germany stands convicted before the world of Incredible stupid ity as well as unbelievable frightful ness. For Germany practically forced the United States Into the war En tirely contemptuous of America ns « possible belligerent, Germany nn nounced unrestricted submarine war fare January 31. ion.

October 27 formal an nouncement was made that American troops in France hnd fired tlielr first shot in war. Nevertheless, the spring of 1918 saw three huge drives on Purls by the Ger mans. By June 1 the Germans were within 46 miles of the French capital, in t'lmteau-Tlderry. Unless they were speedily slopped Paris would be under tlielr guns. The plan of the French was to delay them as long as possible by rear-guard actions until reserves could tie brought up. Yankees Stop Huns. And then took place the thing which all good Americans were prayer fully expecting: American soldiers got Into action In American fashion, under American leadership, with American artillery and machine guns. The Freneh eotnmnnder sent to ( bateau-Thierry an American division made up of marines and of Infantry from the middle West. June 2 the leuthernecks and doughboys moved into support positions back of season ed French troops. The French were forced hack and filtered through the Americans ; the support positions soon became the front. June 4, about five o'clock In the aft ernoon, the Germans attacked In force through a wheat field, In platoon col umns, In perfect order, supremely con fident. The Americans raked them with shrapnel and machine guns. Then they opened with rifle fire. Cool, un hurried, they picked their shots as If nt target practice. Military experts will tell you that the American ma rines are the most effective fighting men in all the armies of the world ; cer tainly they have no equals with the rifle. The Germans wavered, then came on again. Twice more they stopped ; twice more advanced. Then they broke. Flesh and blood could not stand that rifle fire. They crawled off through the standing grain. The Americans sent bullets wherever the wheat stirred, That was the end. Days and nights of heavy bombard ment followed. Sleep was Impossible. The Americans lived on "monkey meat," bread and water. Then they went on and took the town of Boures ches, cleaning out the nests of machine gunners with rifle fire, bayonet and grenade. What They Have They Hold. Next they took the- Bols de Belleau. It was a Jungle. It wns every man for himself, Indian fashion, from tree to tree, from rock to rock. The battnl Ion of leathernecks which took the wood went in with 958 men and 26 officers. They came out with 340 men and Beven officers. But they took the wood. Then they dug themselves in nnd fought off counter-attacks for five days until relieved, constantly shelled and gassed, not one hot meal all that time. What the leathernecks hnve they hold. This one division used up five crack divisions of the Germans. There are those Rmong the allies who say that the Americans at Cha teau-Thierry saved Paris, Just as the Canadians snved Calais. When the military history of the Great War Is written Chateau-Thlerry Is likely to be called the turning point of the struggle. For Its moral force was be yond estimate. It put new heart Into the war-worn French and British. All France flamed with Joy. The Ameri cans ha dstopped the Hun, hnd driven him back, hnd beaten him off. And thousands upon thousands of Just such Americans were In plain sight pushing to the front ! General Foeh In supreme command of the allies on the western front, soon afterward launched the allied offensive nnd victory followed victory all along the fighting line of 250 miles from the North sen to Verdun. It was the be ginning of the end. Ry early October the Hun was beat en to his knees nnd asking for peace. October 31 the Italians utterly routed the Austrians. The same dny Turkey surrendered. November 3 Austria signed an armistice virtually amount ing to unconditional surrender. No vember 9 Kaiser Wilhelm abdicated ami Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm renounced the throne, both fleeing to Holland to escape a people In revolu tion. So the mart' ambition of Emperor M tlllam It of Germany to conquer the world and his 30 yenrs of debauching his people end in defeat, revolution, abdication and flight from Justice. This arch criminal against civiliza tion will be lucky If he fan worse. Whatever his fate It Is of no Impor tance compared with the fact that this earth is now safe from a monstrosity who would pillage a world under pr* text of patriotic love for country.
