FIGHTING STOPS
GREAT WAR OVER
Germany Signs Armistice Which
Is Unconditional Surrender.
KAISER WILHELM ABDICATES
Ortam Of World Conquest End« In
Defeat and Revolut.on—Flight
From Justice of Criminal
Against Civilization.
By J. 0. SHERMAN.
Peace I The greatest war of all his
tory is over.
The armistice naked for by Germany
ha« been signed.
•ban "unconditional surrender." For
the terms of that armistice deprive
Germany of the means of resistance.
Germany must accept whatever peace
terms the allies dictate.
The kaiser—Frederick Wilhelm Vic

Is a fugitive In Holland from justice—
the Justice of his own people us well
ns of the civilized world ; the red Hag
files over Ihe throne he was com
pelled to abdicate. His fate hangs in
the balance. If extradition for pun
ishment ts demanded, his fate Ilea
with Holland.
The great war began June 28, 1914,
with the assassination of the Austrian
Archduke Francis Ferdinand In Sara
jevo, Bosnia, hy Setidans. This was
the beginning, because civilization
bolds the kaiser guilty of seizing It us
a pretext for the world war which he
had long been secretly planning to
carry out his purpose of world con
quest. lie and his tremendous war
machine were ready, Impatient, eager
for action. Here was the program, ns
the kaiser planned It:
lie would force Austria-Hungary, his
ally and practically his vassal. Into
war with Serbia.
Russia would rush to the defeuse of
Serbia. Of Russia he had no fear, for
he well knew that German Intrigue
had already prepured the way In ad
vance for (he ruin of the uuhappy land
of car Nicholas.
France, he knew,
Russia.
tmiiiedliit,. object.
Germany has been preparing to go
back to France. Why? Because Ger
many failed to beggar France by the
staggering Indemnity of 1870. because
she then overlooked the coal and Iron
detsislts of northern France, and be
ause she haled France and the
French, root, stock und branch. Amt
th* kaiser knew also that France was
not ready tor a deutb 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.
Ho his schedule, arranged to Ihe day
nnd hour, called for his triumphant
eniry Into Burts September 2, A. 1».
1914. Then, with a huge French In
demnity and control of the iron and
uuul regions of Meurthe-et-Moselle and
Lens, he would sit hack, make new
war preparations and get ready to
conquer Great Britain. Later on, at
his leisure, would come the third war
anti the subjugation of the United
States !
This means no less
would support
France—«ho was really ids
Ever since 1870
c
War of Frlghtfulnese.
So, posing before the world as nil
advocate of peace driven to war tn de
fense of hla fatherland, the kaiser
went hi* secret, devious way to war—
to the war of deliberate pud calculated
frlghtfuluess which, under the guise
of warfare, despoiled Belgium ; IhUI
waste northern France, depopulated
Serbia ; shot the English nurse, Edith
Oavell ; sunk the Lusitania with her
freight of women aud children ; mas
sacred. ravished aud enslaved non
combatant civilian populations- -fright
fulness which has caused more than
25.UUO.Utkt casualties aud the expend
iture of billion» upon billions of money
—frightfulness which Instead of fright
ening the world into submission lias
arrayed In arms against her 22 civi
lised nations
now makes the uume of Germany a
household execration among most of
the peoples of earth.
At first the kaiser's program went
«long without check or pause. July
28 Austria declared war on Serbia.
Russia went to the aid of Serbia. The
frightful ness which
other nation* promptly fell Into line.
'Declarations of war came thick and
fust. By August 4 the stage was all
set for actual fighting. August 5 the
German« and Belgians fell to on the
j Belgian frontier. The German march
to Barl» was ou.
But, a» everybody knows, Wilhelm
II did not cuter Baris tn triumph
September 2. Why? Because little
Belgium, martyr Belgium, saved Baris.

Likewise th* heroic resistance of
Belgium brought Great Britain forth
with into the war. And though the
British standing army was not large, It
«rent to the front, died In the last ditch
and still further delayed the German
inarch to Pari* Moreover, Great Brit
ain's colonies from all the seven seas
«rent hurrying to the front. And Great
Britain's fleet promptly forced the Ger
roan fleet into eorer at Kiel and swept
the neeans clear of German merchant
shipping, thus carrying to Germany the
war of starvation that Germany had
planned for her.
United State« Neutral.
The United States In the meantime
had proclaimed Its neutrality. Italy,
though a member of the triple alliance,
was holding off on the ground that It»
alliance with Germany aird Austria
were for defense and not of of
fense. It was not until May of 1915
that she got Into the war and then on
the side of the allies. By the end of
1914 Japan was In with the allies and
Turkey with the central powers. Fight
ing was In active progress In Belgium
and France; on the ltusstan-Uerman
and Itusslan-Austrluu frdnties. The
government of France had been re
moved to Bordeaux. But the Ger
mans were still 05 mile* from Boris.
May 7, 1915, the passenger liner
Lusitania was torpedoed without warn
ing and sunk by a German submarine
off the coast of Ireland. This outrage
against humanity horrified civilization.
Germany, however, celebrated the
sinking. To the world she sought to
defend her action by ussertiug that the
Lusitania wus armed und rhut she cur
ried munitions of war. She was not
armed and she did not carry muhltions
Many Americans felt there
after that the entrance of the United
States Into the war was Inevitable.
February 22, 1910, the German crown
prince's army begun the attack on Ver
dun which was to blast a wuy to Baris.
The bombardment of Verdun was Ihe
heaviest artillery Are of the war.
II was here tlmt the French suld
"They shall not pass."
Germans did not pass. The French
saved Verdun by commandeering prac
tically ever motor vehicle in Burls and
rushing reserves to the great fortress.
The devotion of Its garrison, the In
tensity and persistence of the German
attack und the dramatic deliverance
huve made the name Verdun known
the world over.
June 5 Lord Kitchener, the British
war hero, was lost on the British cruis
er Hampshire, together with most of
the crew. He was on a secret mission
fof the allies. It was aftérwnrd
charged rhut he was betrayed by the
Russian czurlna, 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
a valuable curgo hack to Germany. She
claimed to he u merchant vessel and
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 Nantucket, Mass.,
was presumably part of the same plan.
Uermuny was getting ready for her
forthcoming announcement of unre
stricted submarine warfare.
September 14 the British Introduced
Into war u new engine of destruction—
the "tank." In brief It 1» a heavily
armored body, armed with guns on a
"cut«rplUar" Instead of wheels. It can
thus travel over almost any sort of
ground and crush Its way through most
obstacles. The caterpHlur tractor Is
an American Invention, originating In
Beorlu, III.; the adaptation of harm
less tractor machinery to n destructive
war engine was done In secrecy by an
Englishman. The tank proved a genu
ine surprise and hns played no small
pHrt In the war. together with lighter
uml 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 roost strik
ing exploits of the war was the ex
ploit of an American sergeant who
rode Into action perched on the top
of an American tauk.
Collapse of Rusata.
f war.
And the
The close of the year (916 was mark
ed by the resignation of Premier Her
bert Asquith of Great Britain and the
acceptance of the premiership by
David Lloyd George; a new cabinet lu
France und h new commander In chief,
General Nivelle ; the practically com
plete defeat of the armies of Rou
tnnnln, 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 panted peace on terms of her
own making
The spring of 1917 saw the collapse
of Russin, a collapse undoubtedly
Wrought about hy Germany through In
trigue and for her own purpose*. It
begun March 11 with revolution In Pe
trograd. March 15 t'xar Nicholas ale
d'eated. March 22 America recognized
the new Russian government a repub
lic. Since then Russia has been a
chaos. Russia ts one of the big prob
lems confronting (he allies. They can
presumably put ail end to the reign of
anarchy, murder nnd pillage; the re
generation of the nation Is a tremen
dous undertaking.
October of I9t7 was marked by the
collapse of the Italian Isonxo front.
This collapse was also due to German
propagande and Intrigue. Taken alto
gether the year 1917 was not one of
cheer for the allies.
America Goe« In. *
And yet Ihe turning point of the war
was reached In 19t7. 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 as a
possible belligerent, Germany an
nounced unrestricted submarine war
fare January 81, 1917. Moreover, Ger
many had the unbridled arrogance and
the colossal presumption to Inform the
United States of America that permis
sion would be given te continue to sail
regular American passenger ships after
February 1 If these ships went to and
from Falmouth and followed a pre
scribed course-filing and returning; If
the steamers were ^tainted In a speci
fied way and carried specified flags ;
If one steamer a week eaeh way were
sailed, and if the United States govern
ment guaranteed that no contraband
was carried.
The Immediate answer of tltb United
States was given February 8—the sev
erance of diplomatic relations with
Germany. April 6 the president signed
a Joint resolution of the two houses
of congress declaring a state of war
to exist with Germany. In quick suc
cession came the selective service act
for the raising of an army ; a war
approprlntlon of *8,000,000,000 ; the
sending of an expeditionary force jf
regulars to France under General
Bershlng; the registration of nearly
10,000,000 men for military service
the closing of the first Liberty loan
with a large oversubscription; the
drafting of the state militia Into the
federal service. _ October 27 formal an
nouncement was made that American
troops In France had fired their first
shot In war.
Nevertheless, the spring of 1918 saw
three huge drives on Paris by the Ger
mans. By June 1 the Germnns were
within 40 miles of the French capital.
In Chateau-Thlerry. Unless they were
speedily stopped Paris would he under
their guns. The plan of the French
was to delay them as long as possible
by rear-guard actions until reserves
could be brought up.
Yankee« 8top Hun«.
And then took place the thing
which all good Americans were prnyer
fully expecting: American soldiers
got Into action In American fashion,
under Amerlcnn leadership, with
American artillery and machine guns.
The French commander sent to
Chateau-Thlerry an American division
made up of marines and of Infantry
from the middle West. -Tune 2 the
leuthernecks and doughboys moved
Into support positions back of season
ed French troops. The French were
forced back 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 ns If
at target practice. Military experts
will tell you that the Amerlcnn 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 ftrw. They crawled oft thrmigh 1 He
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 'Imonkey
meat," breud and water. Then they
went on and took the town of Botires
ohes, denning out the nests of mnehine
gunners with rifle fire, bayonet and
grenade.
What They Hav« They Hold.
Next they took the Bois de Belleau.
It was o Jungle, It wns every man for
himself, Indian fashion, from tree to
tree, from rock to rock. The battal
ion of leathernecks which took the
wood went In with 958 men and 26
officers. They enme out with 340 men
and seven officers. But they took
the wood. Then they dug themselves
In anil fought off counter-attacks for
five (lays until relieved, constantly
shelled and gassed, not one hot meal
all that time. What the leathernecks
have they hold.
This one division used up five crack
divisions of the Germans.
There are those among the nllies
who say that the Americans at Chn
teau-Thlerry saved Paris, Just as the
Canadian* saved 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 estlninte. It put new heart Into
the war-worn French and British. All
France flamed with joy. The Ameri
cans ha dstopped the Hun, had driven
him hack, had beaten him off. And
thousands upon thousands of just such
Americans wore In plain sight pushing
to the front !
General Foch In supreme command
of the allies on the western front, soon
afterward launched the allied offensive
nnd victory followed victory nil along
the ftgbting line of 250 miles from the
North sen to Verdun. It wns the be
ginning of the end.
By early October the Hun wns beat
en to his knees nnd asking for peace.
October 31 the Italians utterly muted
the Austrians. The same day Turkey
surrendered. November 3 Austria
signed an armistice virtually amount
ing to unconditional surrender. No
vember 9 Kaiser Wilhelm abdicated
and Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm
renounced the throne, both fleeing to
Holland to escape a people In revolu
tion.
Ho the mad ambition of Emperor
William II of Germany to conquer the
world and hts 30 years of debnuching
his people end In defeat, revolution,
abdication nnd flight from justice.
This arch criminal against civiliza
tion will be lucky If he fares no
