WILHELM DIDN'T BRING HOME
When the time comes for the peace
council we shall hear a vociferous
whining that the German people
driven unwillingly into the war of rapine
and conquest by their military masters,
and the victorious allies should he gen
erous and forgiving. President Wil
son's frequent and unfortunate efforts
in his diplomatic notes to draw a dis
tinction between the German people and
their leaders will then rise up to plague
and embarrass the allied statesmen.
/ These protestations should he weighed
relentlessly for what they are worth :
Here in America, in particular, we
should keep our eyes on the truth and
not be swept off our balance by maudlin
The truth is that the German people
were equal and eager partners with the
kaiser and his military and junker co
horts. If the war had gone to their
liking they would be parading, singing,
hoching and bell-ringing in these No
vember days of 1918, just as they were
shouting themselves hoarse over seeming
victory in the autumn of 1914,
Forgetful people who think that the
German people were driven unwillingly
into this war will do well to refresh their
memories with the petition sent to the
imperial chancellor May 20, 1915, by six
great industrial associations—the League
of Agriculturists, the German Peasant
league, the Christian German Peasant
union, the Central Association of Ger
man Industrialists and the League of
the Industrialist and the Conservative
Middle Class association. In that peti
tion these six great associations said :
"With regard to the cast, the follow
ing consideration must guide us: For
the great increase in industrial power
which we expect in ' the west we must
secure a counterpoise hy the annexation
of an agricultural territory of equal value
in the east. It is'necessary to strengthen
the agricultural basis of our national
economy ; to secure room for the ex
pansion^of a great German agricultural
settlement ; to restore to our empire the
German peasants living in a foreign land,
particularly in Russia; finally, we must
increase considerably the number of onr
follow countrymen able to bear arms.
"All these matters require an impor
tant extension of the frontier of the em
pire and of Prussia toward the east
through the annexation of at least some
parts of the Baltic provinces and of ter
ril orics to the south of them, while keep
ing in view , the necessity of a military
defense of the eastern German frontier.
"As to what political rights to give
the inhabitants of the new territories
and as to what guarantees arc necessary
to further German influence and indus
trial life, we will merely refer to what
we have said about France. The war
indemnity tt be exacted from Russia
should, to a large extent, consist in the
t surrender of terriipr^,',' i a v u
Conquest in the west and conquest in
■ the east and the north ! Conquest to
"restore to our empire the German
peasants living in a foreign land"—per
fect harmony in words and music with
the kaiser's declaration in his notable
Berlin speech 20 years ago ;
"It is my deafest wish that, standing
in closest union, you help me to do my
duty^not only to my countrymen irr a
sense, but also to many thou
sands of countrymen in foreign lands.
Thig means that I may he able to pro
tect them if I must."
At the conclusion of these menacing
and meaningful words the kaiser lifted
ibis glass and proposed the following
"What you have inherited from
your fathers, conquer it in order that
you may possess it."
To lift the sword for their country
men in foreign lands; Where can be
found these countrymen in greater num
bers than in the United States ? Or than
in South America? Fiye hundred thou
sand colonized in Brazil alone.
The German masses were as hot and
hungry for the "bacon" hack in 1914 as
ever was the kaiser, the crown prince
and all tlieir imperial retinue of saher
clanking world conquerors,
had brought home the "bacon" their ac
claiming hochs would have ascended to
the skies. Nothing succeeds like suc
cess, nothing fails like failure.
The German masses are not giving
bistory an exhibition of dignity and
noble bearing in their hour of defeat
deceive the allied statesmen,

•HOW HAS THE MIGHTY
Four years ago William Hohenzollern
was strutting about from Berlin to the
battle front, announcing that "My vic
torious armies will make the peace
terms and there will be no peace but the
peace of the sword." It looked then
like Willie might be able to "make good"
with his boasting.
Today Willie is in hiding, postponing
by ignoble and cowardly flight, the death
that the world believes will overtake him
within a few months, at most. He is
said to have tried to reach the British
lines to surrender to the British soldiers,
to become the prisoner of the country
he had taught his people to hate as, no
other country was hated, because know
ing his own people, he feared them more
fhan the British.
But his former subjects "headed
him off" and drove him back to his own
country. He remained in hiding like
the thief, the murderer and criminal that
he is and, with his son, the former
crown prince and Von Hindenburg, the
mighty butcher who slaughtered men
and women and children for the mere
fun of it. he hid in a railroad car and
was whisked across the line to Holland,
to be interned until the war is over.
Tt is to be devoutly hoped that the
peace terms will demand the surrender
of the kaiser, his six sons, Von Hinden
burg, Ludendorff and that prince of
murderers, Von Tirpitz, who ordered
the sinking of the Lusitania, to the
Allies for trial and that the execution
of these murderers will be made public
and photographed and sent broadcast
throughout the world, as a warning to
others who may desire to "rule by the
An error was made in the head of an
editorial in Monday's Star-Mirror. The
editorial was entitled : "Republicans can
thank Frank R. Gooding." The word
"thank" was omitted, making it read :
"Republicans can Frank R. Gooding."
There is a vast difference between the
two statements. The republicans can
surely thank Mr. Gooding for the splen
did victory for the ticket, even though he
failed of election. The republicans have
not "canned" Governor Gooding, by any
means. On the contrary, Governor
Gooding's election as United States sen
ator to succeed Nugent two years from
now, is a certainty. Republicans will
rally to the support of Governor Good
ing two years hence and he will get a
handsome majority. Nugent was only
elected for two years, to fill out the
unexpired term of the late Senator

"great investment and bring billions for

DEARY NEWSPAPER TELLS OF
PRICES PAID FARMERS IN
THAT SECTION FOR CREAM
E. F. Randall, of the local creatrt
ery, submits the following figures in
proof of the contention that dairying
will pay. They show what the cream
ery paid a number of farmers for a
single can of cream delivered by each
j Andrew Nelson, for one 8-gallon
! ca î\> $13.09; Gus Birchmier, foi 5
I gallon can, $8.68; Swan Swanson, for
; for one 5-gallon can, 8.38; J. B. Kitch,
one 5-gallon can, 8.13; Anton Hanson,
for one 5-gallon can, $9.40; Swan
Peterson, for one 5-gallon can, $9.30;
James Hamm, for 6-gallon can, $9.65.
The difference in the amount paid
for each is due to the difference in
the test. This shows in actual figures
what a few cows will bring in spot
cash at a time when there is no other
income possible on the farm. John
Carlson will soon have ten cows fresh
and milking. A few more like him
would keep the creamery running all
In this connection it might be stat
ed that from the time it started up
this spring until the crops were put
onto the market the creamery sup
plied practically all the income the
farmers had, and the more cream a
patron brought in during that time
the greater was his monthly income.
And right at this time when beans
and potatoes are not finding sale be
cause of lack of cars and other reas
ons, the man who sells cream is draw
ing a substantial monthly revenue,
where, if he did not sell cream, he
would be getting nothing.
Dairying is growing in this sec
More farmers are milking
cows now than last season,_ and a
good profit is being made in spite
of high prices for feed. Once they
begin to raise feed of the kind actual
ly needed the rest will be easy.—
ROLF SIIS GERMAN
GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER
WANTS ARMISTICE TERMS
MITIGATED TO GET FOOD
LONDON, Nov. 11.—Dr. Solff, the
German secretary, has addressed a
message to Secretary of State Lan
sing requesting that President Wilson
intervene to mitigate "fearful con
ditions" existing in Germany.
Dr. Solff says, according to a Ger
man wireless received here today,
that he feels it his duty to draw Presi
dent Wilson's attention to the fact
that the enforcement of the condi
tions of the armistice, especially the
surrender of transport, means the
starving of millions, and requests that
the president's influence be directed
toward overcoming this danger.
The president, he points out, has
declared that he did not wish to make
war on the German people and did
not wish to impede its peaceful de
"The German government has re
ceived the conditions of the armis
tice," continued Dr. Solff.

our duty to draw the president's at

earnestness to the fact that the. en
forcement of the condition» must pro

ings contrary to those upon which
alone f the , reconstruction of a. com
mumty of nations cap rest, guaran
teeing a just and durable peace.
"The German people, therefore, at
this fateful hour, address themselves
again to the president with the re
quest that he use his influence with
the allied powers in order to mitigate
these fearfifl conditions."
GREEK GIRLS AS NURSES
HELP FELLOW COUNTRYMEN
Greek girls in the uniforms of Ameri
can Red Cross nurses are now serving
in the hospitals of Greece. These girls
are part of a number from New England
who, anxious (o help their fellow coun
trymen, decided to become nursing aids.
They enrolled in training courses in (he
Massachusetts General hospital, and
other Boston hospitals, where they soon
became proficient in their work. Re
cently four of them, who had practically
completed their courses, decided that
they would like to go hack to Greece
with the American mission, which was
just then about to leave. Through the
Greek legation they applied for per
mission to go with this mission as mem
bers of the American Red Cross.
■ Nq\y thjfjt are not only serving tlieir
owh people, hut are also creating a feel
ing in Greece which cements the long
friendship of the Greeks with America.
Although no American troops have been
landed on Greek soil, the people are
nevertheless pleased with the sight of
an American uniform, no matter what
branch of the service it represents.
Another group of Greek girls tn Bos
ton is taking up courses at Simmons
college, in dietetics, domestic science,
and home aid. These girls also expect
shortly to sail for Greece.
