Martille, Columbia St. "To Hell With the kaiser Loipmg "To Hell with the Kaiser" is the greatest arraignment of Frussianism and the moral baseness of the Ho-* henzolierns and their kind ever made. It is a magnificent co-ming ling of fact and imagination, shew ing how Wilhelm, the monster of Eu rope, sign a pact with Satan for the mastery of the world. This is fol lowed by the willful destruction of the treaty of Belgium, as a prelim inary to the most ghastly crimes the world has ever known.
