M^: LOYALTY TALK IS BIG ATTRACTION IN NEW ULM ii-f- (Continued from 1st page) criticism of the conscription law under which we have been drafted into the army of the, nation, or any act of utter ance designed to hinder its operation, is a menace to us who are about to assist in fighting the Nation's battles and we therefore call upon all citizens to be contstantly loyal in thought, word and action, and to steadfastly support the government in its every effort to prosecute the war to a success ful conclusion and by doing this, we believe the object of the war may be more speedily attained." Parade is Long One. The parade was lead by Dr. J. P. Graff, marshal of the day, with Lieut. Alfred Puhlmann and Otto Oswald as aides. The first division formed on Broadway, between Second and Third North streets, with Hofmeister's band leading. Then came the G. A.

Frank Hopkins of Fairfax, are members, brought up the rear of the parade, and created no little favor able comment and much cheering from the large number of people who viewed the parade from the streets thru which it marched. The speaking was from a platform erected for the occasion, in front of the Court House. Superintendent A. J. Mueller of the Water and Light depart ment had illuminated the stand with a large number of red, white and blue electric lights and the stand presented" a handsome appearance. Besides the speakers the platform was occupied by officers of the Com mercial Club, under whose auspices the meeting was held, members of the com mittee and by H. C. Hess, director of the Public Safety league of Brown county. An Uninvited Speaker. There was also ah uninvited individ ual, whose name is said to be Dowling from Olivia, who insisted on making a speech, after the others speakers had finished. Major Dowling took oc casion to gratiuously insult the German people and the committee in charge were much chagrined that he got out of their control. Judge I. M. Olsen in a brief address welcomed the audience and thanked the people of all the surrounding towns for the neighborly manner in which 'people of this city are Germans, and their sympathies with the traditions of their fatherland are only natural. Many of the principles of democracy originated in Germanyi- but the trouble has been that over there the trend has been against democracy, while over here it has been in the other direction and toward democracy. We all want democracy, and I am as sure that the people of New Ulm will all be behind the president as I am that the sun rises and sets."

He paid an eloquent tribute to the drafted men, the national guard and the' volunteers, declaring they were all patriotic, all equally loved and honored and all privileged to fulfill the same glorious duty of carrying the Stars and Srtipes onto foreign soil, in the most glorious war ever fought in civilized times .'.'^ Proud of New Ulm.

I have lived here for thirty: no longer irritates, thus ending bladder years, and I long ago learned to love Governor Burhquist was the second speaker on the program and his address was cheered with enthusiasm by the audience. Governor Burnquist opened his speech by declaring that he was convinced that New Ulm is 100 per cent loyal to the United States. Continuing he said that we are now engaged in the greatest war of history. "It is a war," he continued, "that has been brought upon us, not' because we want it, but because we have to have it. It is a war that we have not desired, that we have tried to evade, but we have been forced into it and it is our duty as citizens of the United States, regardless orf color, or nationality or creed or vocation, to stand back of the United States arid its great commander in chief." Continuing the governor gave a brief resume of the causes which lead up to the outbreak of the con^ct among the European nations. The allied nations were unprepared for war, while Germany was ready, equipped and anxious to fight, he declared. In the governor's opinion, the assasinaticn of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria was a mere pretext for Germany and Austria to engage in war. Germany wanted war with Russia, but Austria did not. The governor paid a high tribut? to the Gem an people, daring that it is not the German people we a fighting, but it is the "militarism of the russian government that we are after." The characters of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were compared with that of Emperor Wilhem, much to the disc edit of the latter. The two former, he said, were for peace, while the Kaiser is for war. The governor highly praised the drafted men, in whose honor the meeting was held. '"It is but fair to congratu late these young men that are going forth to fight our battles." he said. "It was a great sight to see them stand up unanimously this evening and pledge their whole support to this country in this great crisis. They are going forth to follow the flag that has never known defeat and never will so long as it stands 'or liberty and righteousness/' One of the most favorably received speeches of the evening was made by former Senator Julius Coller of Shako pee. He urged his hearers to stand by the government in the present un pleasantness. He said that prior to the date of our entry into the war he had hoped to see Germany win the great world war, but that now the United States had entered the conflict he deemed it the duty cf every citizen to stand firmly behind the president. He said that he was of German blood, his parents having been born in the old country, and that "while Germany is the Father land," he said, /'America is our mother land, and it is the duty of every American to stand by the motherland." Miss Frances Krook sang "The Star Spangled Banner," accempanied by the Hofmeister band. Senator J. E. Haycraft cf Fairmont, the next speaker, mentioned the large number of patriotic meetings in various parts of the state, but the one in New Ulm beat any that he had attended anywhere he said.

Second Draft in Spring. In the opinion of the United States army officers at Washington, the second draft will not be until next spring, if at all. According to these officers every available camp site will be occupied by the nearly three quarters of a million men called in the first draft. Besides this the transportation facilities, they declare, will not permit the use of more men within at least six months.- General Crowder, chairman of the draft board, says the subject of another draft had not been considered as a possibility in the near future. He is now engaged in making a complete report of the first draft and promulgat ing his recommendations for future ones. It is expected that several amend ments to the draft law, recommeded by General Crowder, will be adopted by congress before the next draft is made. He is opposed .to making it possible for all of the sons of one family, be drawn in the draft. A change will also be made relative the status of married men, a more Lberal oli planned. Changes will also necessarily be made relative to men who have passed the draft age, anctthose who have reached the draft age since the first draft was called last June.
