Marshal Says Wilson Will
Be Candidate for Reelection
The picnic given under the auspices of the German-American Alliance
at the oM I air Grounds Sunday was an event that brought credit to those
who planned it. Despite the huge crowd that participated in the outng,
was not a single evidence of rowdyism during the day.
!t was a gathering of men, women and children. The little folks romped
over the picturesque hills while their elders fraternized with neighbors
and old acquaintances. It was more of a reunion than a picnic.
Such outings tin much good and no harm, and it is to be hoped that
they become frequent summer events. The picnic, though nrranged by
German-Americans, was cosmopolitan. Kvery nationality was well repre
sented, but pe.-.plo of German ancestry naturally predominated.
This outing t-howed the German-Ameru an as he may always be found.
There is not a more substantial race to he found anywhere than the German
He is law abiding and noted especially for his love of his family and his
Whereever the German goes, there his wife and family may be found al
so, and this virtue is good enough for anyone not possessing it, to adopt.
The German-Americans who were present at Sunday's outing were ac
rom pained by their wives and children. And the total number of grown
ups did not greatly exceed the number of little boys and girls. Little chil
dren are the world's balance wheel, and wherever they go they radiate
cheerfulness just as the first ray of sunlight that follows the rain.
Sunday's picnic was more than worth while. The German-American Al
liance should repeat it often.
During the Civil War in the United States, England predicted that the
Union would be shot to the four winds. We should like to have old man

THE HOLE IN THE DOIGHNLT.
Washington, Sept. 2 Vice
president Marshall authoriz
ed the publication of a state
ment here today that Presi
dent Wilson would be a can
didate for re-election.
Scretary Tumulty said the
White House knew nothing
of the statement and would
not comment upon it.
The Vice-president's state
ment was made in the course
of an authorized interview on
the political situation, which
"The Democratic party
will have but one candidate
for president in 1916, and his
name happens to be Wood
row Wilson. He will have the
entire and unqualified and
united support of his party.
Fair-minded Democrats will
recognize that he is entitled
to a chance for a second
term to prove the utility of
'Lightning; rods already
up may as welt be taken
down and preserved for fu
ture use; Democratic light
ning will not strike a rod in 1916."
That the President would be a candidate
cabinet advisers to a man.
Unless all signs fail, the European war is going to be fought out on ihe
land. There hav? been a few clashes on the sea, but these have been of
little consequence ,
Military experts have never doubted Germany's strength from the army
standpoint, but many doubted whether its navy would be able to cope wit
the mbined strength of iU foes on the water. The Kaiser seems to
view the situation from the same standpoint. He knew what he could do
in a land campaign, and present indications are that he has determined to
fight it out without much support from the navy.
Undoubtedly he has shown wisdom in this decision. Germany a army
probably has no rival in the world. Its showing thus far has convinced most

Kaiser has won virtually every battle. His mighty army is sweeping
across the enemies' country witn amazing rapidity. And unless the allies
are able to make a better showing than they have up to the present time,
Germany is going to be in absolute control of the greater part of V ranee
and England within a very brief time. ... u
And while the combined forces are being driven almost into the tea, the
powerful British and French fleets are scouring the ocean in search of
the German navy. ... u
And where is the German fleet V There are many places that it migbt
be, but there is a strong probobility that it is quietly resting in th? Kaisrr
CWilhelm Canal. The territory on both sides of this fortified waterway
is controlled by Germany. Th- entrance to the canal is a mass of hul.l.n
mines, and should the opposing fleets attempt to enter it. they worn be
blown into smitherines.
The German navy may never bo called upon to fight during the present
. conflict. The Kaiser seems to he willing to permit England and Franco
to be mistress of the sea, while he lakes possession of everything they own
And if he is successful in his campaign in tho interior, what doe. it
matter how powerful the opposing fleets are? With England and France
whipped into submission by the German army, the fleets will be like the
man without a country.
The great navies in this war seem to be about as important as the hole
in the doughnut.
