Editor El Paso Herald:
I had decided not to renew my subscription for your paper but when
I saw the stand you took in the recent prohibition campaign in your city,
I decided to renew for at least another year to show my appreciation for
what you did. I am indeed grateful for a paper that does not hesitate to
publish what it knows is right for the good of humanity.

President Wilson, addressing
congress in Joint session at
12:30 oclock today, replied to the re
cent speeches by German chancelor
von Hertling and the Austrian foreign
minister, count Czernin.
Chancelor von Hertlinga state
ment, the president said, was very
vnrne and confusing and leads to
practically no conclusion. It -was
very different In tone fixm that of
count Czernin, which the presi
dent said had a very friendly tone.
The president reiterated that the
United States had no desire to inter
fere in European affairs and "would
disdain to take advantage of any in
ternal weakness or disorder to im
pose her own will upon other people."
Praises Czernla's Speech.
All the way through the president
drew a parallel between the pro
nouncements of chancelor Hertling
ana xoreign minister czernin and his
hearers drew the conclusion that the
president decidedly considered Czer-
nin's utterances as being more favor-
auie man neruings.
"Cxernln seems to see the fun
damental elements of peace with
clear eyes and does not seeU to
obscure them," said the presi
dent. "Count Czernin," said the president,
"probably would have gone much
farther had it not been for tha em-
barassment of Austria's alliances and
of her dependence on Germany."

The test of whether it is Dosslble
for the belligerents to go on compar

Justice to bring a permanent peace.

Items which must constitute the body
of any final settlement. He Is jealous
of international action and interna
tional counsel. He accepts, he says,
the principle of public diplomacy, but
he appears to insist that it be con
fined, at any rate in this case, to
generalities; that the several particu
lar questions of territory and sov
ereignty, the several questions npon
whors settlement must depend the

now engaged In the war, must be dis

council, but severally by the nations

Demands Return of Colonics.
"He agrees that the seas should be
free, but looks askance at any limi
tation to that freedom, by interna
tional action in the Interest of the
common order. He would without re
serve be glad to eee economic bar
riers removed between nation and na
tion, for that could in no way Im
pede the ambitions of the military
party with whom he seems con
strained to keep on terms. Neither
does he raise objection to a limitation
of armaments. That matter will be
settled of Itself, he thinks, by the eco
nomic conditions which must follow
the war. But the German colonies,
he demands, must be returned with
out debate.
Wants I-dlvldual Barter.
"He Tvill discuss with no one but
the representatives of Russia what
dispositions shall be made of the peo
ples and the lands of the Baltic pro
lnces; with no one but the govern
ment of France the "conditions," un
der which French territory shall be

what shall be done with Poland. In
the determination of all questions af
fecting the Balkan states he defers,
as I understand him, to -Austria and

Mr. Taft will leave here Tuesday

Speaking on the subject of "The
Great War," Mr. Taft said, in part:
"The allies are fighting for a prin
ciple, the maintenance of which af
fects the future of civilization. If
they do not achieve it, they have
sacrificed the flower of their youth
and mortgaged their future for a
century. The allies can not concede
peace until tney conquer it. When
they do so it will be nermanent.
Otherwise they fall.
"President Wilson says the allies
are fighting to make the world safe
for democracy.
Wilson Misunderstood.
"Some misconception has been
created on this head. The allies are
not struggling to force a particular
form of government on Germany. If
the German people continue to wish
an emperor. It Is not the purpose of
the allies to require them to have a
republic. Their purpose is to end the
military policy and foreign policy of
Germany that looks to the mainten
ance of a military, and naval machine.

continues it will entail on every dem- !
ocratlc government the duty of main- '
talning a similar armament in self ,
defence, or, what is more likely, the 1
duty will be wholly or partially neg- ?
lectea. Thus the policy of Germany
with her purpose and destiny will
threaten every democracy. This is
the condition which It Is the deter

By defeating Germany in this war
The German people have been very
loyal to tneir emperor, because his
leadership accords with the false
philosophy of the state and German
destiny with which they have been
doctrinated and poisoned. A defeat
of the military machine must open
tneir eyes to tne niaeous futility oi
their political course. The German
government will then be changed as
Its people will have it changed, to
avoid the recurrence of such a trag

"When the war Is won the United
States will wish to be heard as to

Insist on a Just peace, not one of
material conquest It is a moral vic
tory the world should win. Mean
time, let us hope and pray that all
the allies will reject proposals for
settlement and compromise of every
nature: that they will adhere rigidly
and religiously to the principle that
until a victorious result gives secu
rity that the world shall not again be
drenched in blood through the In
sanely selfish nollcv of a military
caste ruling a deluded people Intoxi
cated with material success and
power, there will be no peace."

AMSTERDAM. Holland, Feb. II. Germany desires peace, tut
before it can be attained, her enemies must recognize that Germany
has been victorious, emperor' William said in reply to an address presented
by the burgomaster of Hamburg on the conclusion of peace with the
Ukraine. The emperor's reply as given in a Berlin dispatch follows:
"We have gone through hard times. Every one has had a burden to
bear anxiety, mourning, grief, .tribulation and not the least he who stands
before you. In him were combined the care and grief for the entire people
in its sorrows."
The German emperor has in the past said he considered that almost all
the world was against Germany, trying to prevent the triumph of Germany'f
cause, but that the steel hard will for victory must prevail.
His "victor's peace" is not in accord with the declarations of the Ger
man reichstag which came out for a peace by negotiations, with no annexa
tions and no indemnities. His speech places him in line with ven Tirpitz and
con Hindenburg. the pan-Germans and the Fatherland party, as against the
reichstag majority and the various branches of the Socialist party.

tan saved the remnants of Turkish
prestige. Many critics give him credit
for a successful regime. Others de
nounced it as infamous. Whatever
the true estimate, it is a fact that the
Turkish empire increased Its power.

Is Driven From Power.
Stubbornly though he had fought
outside forces to prevent disintegra
tion of his empire, his fall came within
the empire itself by the rise of the
Young Turks, a party bent upon con
stitutional government. Abdul Hamid
granted a constitution, but failed to
carry out the liberal ideas of the
new generation. In the revolution of
1909 he was driven from the imperial
palace on the shores ot the Bosphorus,
made a prisoner, and confined in the
Villa Latin!, a former residence of a
Greek merchant. In Salonika, the city
where the Young Turk movement had
its birth.
During his autocratic regime. Abdul
Hamid was. before all else, sultan and
caliph. In audience before him Turk
ish subjects, even at command to take
a seat, only ventured to tilt them
selves on the edge ot a chair and
bow homage, repeating the formula,
"Master, thy word is law."
Gypsy Scared Illm.
Abdul Hamid once had his fortune
told by a gypsy, who predicted a vio
lent death. This prophecy was large
ly responsible for his constant fear
of the assassin, although It was also
founded in fact, for several plots upon
his life were nearly successful. He
took extraordinary precautions for hU
personal safety. It Is said that he
touched no meal until some of his en
trusted servants had first tasted ot
each dish, and that he often waited
a considerabel time to determine the
effects which the "poison" If there
were any might have upon them. He
was in such fear of bombs that he
seldom slept twice in succession In
the same room of his palace. He was
afflicted with neurosis and his dis
trust of every one was carried to a
degree bordering upon mania.
His younger brother, Mohamcd V,
succeeded him as sultan.
