The pan-German plot to dominate the world has been worked out with characteristic German thoroughness. There is no land on the globe In which the web of intrigue has not been wov en. Every country has its place in the scheme and is expected to fall into its place at the proper time and in the proper way. Bribery at one point, flat tery at another, the dexterous use of innocent visionaries, the careful en couragement of dissensions every where, the industrious dissemination of falsehoods tending to embroil nations with one another, class with class, and all to weaken and demoralize any peo ples who might by union become strong this sort of thing for years has been going on in the hands of German agents everywhere. The progress of the world Implies the growth of good will and mutual helpfulness wherever men make their homes. Pan-German intrigue foments Harry Pratt Judson. distrust and ill will ; seeks out all the discordant elements of life with tire less malevolence. German agents are found stirring up anti-British senti ment in India and South Africa and Ireland ; anti-American sentiment in Mexico and Colombia, in Argentina and Chile; animosity against the whites among southern negroes ; dislike of Japan in America and dislike of Amer ica in Japan ; discord between Wal loons and Flemings in tortured Belgi um. All this is to the definite end of smoothing the way for German arms when the time comes to strike. Ger man military power finds German in trigue and treachery its handmaid. Hamburg to Bagdad. But the basis of the whole scheme of Prussian world dominion is absolute German control from Hamburg to Bag dad. This implies a fortress in the center of Europe, from which light ning blows can be struck in all direc tions. It implies an intrenched posi tion on the North sea, on the Baltic, on the Adriatic, on he Aegean, on the Black sea and the Straits, on the Med iterranean and the Persian gulf. It Implies domination, political, military and economic, of the Balkan peninsula, with all its rich lands, of the Suez canal and Egypt. It means the domi nation of Asia and Africa. It means as Napoleon said, Constantinople, the empire of the world. There might be the simulacrum of an alliance with Turkey and Bulgaria, Serbia, and Greece. But, throughout all, Germany would everywhere absolutely control, for German political power and for the development of German capital and German industry. For all practical purposes it would be a German empire from the Baltic to the Persian gulf. But in order to carry out this vast scheme, grandiose as it may appear, but quite real and definite, as it is in point of fact, the first condition, with out which all would fall to pieces like a house of cards, is to secure complete control by Germany over the dual mon archy, Austria-Hungary. The alliance at present and for so many years in force must be exchanged for a much closer rrintlon, one which. Whatever Its form, will mean that Germany has the final voice in every essential question. As In the German empire under the guise of federation It Is In the last analysis Prussia which determines all essential policies, so in the new Mittel Europa, it will be Germany, In other words Prussia, which will really gov ern. Whatever the outward semblance of things, in fact Austria and Hungary will then cease to be Independent. The German kaiser will make the Prussian will supreme throughout. The reasons for this German middle Europe plan will appear later. Absolutism in Austria-Hungary. But what is the dual monarchy which the Prussian king alms to make his footstool? " " The House of . Hapsburg has reigned In Vienna for centuries. It has come down from the middle ages and, retains President of University of Chicago to the full the medieval ideas of abso lutism. It is only since 1806 that the title of emperor of Austria has been used ; in fact the head of the House of Hapsburg reigns in many of the crown lands of the empire by inheritance, as duke, count or whatnot. In 1526 the duke of Austria was elected king of Bohemia, and in the same year he wms elected king of Hungary. These tit1" and the regal authority which thev gave, although in each case the crown was by right elective, the Hapsburs-i have kept as hereditary and despotic, quite as much as in their hereditary upper and lower Austria. Thus, in the first place, we have as an essential factor In the dual monarchy a medieval and aristocratic monarch and a mon archy in a German family. The second striking fact is the di versity of races and languages. Ger . many is nearly homogeneous. It has on its borders some non-Germanic sub jects. Inhabiting lands which represent some of the plunder of Prussian wars Poles in Posen, Danes in Schleswig, French in Alsace-Lorraine. But the great mass of the people of the empire are German in blood and speech. Germans in Dual Monarchy. In Austria-Hungary, however, the Germans are a minority ; in a total population of about 50,000,000 there are only 12,000,000 Germans. The oth er races are, in round numbers, Slavs, 24,000,000; Magyars (Hungarians), 10,000.000, and Latins, 4,000,000. In other words, the population is 24 per cent German, 48 per cent Slav, 20 per cent Magyar, and 8 per cent Latin. But note thac the German Haps burgs, as long as they could, ruled au tocratically in the interest of German izing the entire empire. German was the official language. German were the laws, German the officers. The col lapse of the Austrian armies in 1859, In the war with France and Sardinia, and again in 1866, in the war with Prussia, compelled the Hapsburgs to modify their methods. A simulacrum of elective parliaments was introduced, and in 1867 the empire was divided. The Magyars were taken into partner ship and the dual monarchy was formed. In Vienna the head of the house of Hapsburg reigns as emperor of Austria ; In Budapest he reigns as king of Hungary. Each monarchy has its own parliament and cabinet, and there are Joint ministries of for eign affairs, war and finance, with a sort of joint parliamentary committee for common purposes. But while in this arrangement of 1867 the Magyars were given their freedom, pains were taken by both the Germans of Austria and the Magyars of Hungary that the Slavs should be pushed to the wall. Said the Austrian representative, Count Beust, at that time to his Magyar colleague: "We will take care of our barbarians; you must take care of yours." Whom did he mean? Germans Control Austria. Austria has a population of some 28,000.000. Of these there are 10. 000.000 Germans, the remaining 18, 000.000 being mainly Slavs Poles and Bohemians, Serbs, Croats, and Slo venes, with many Italians in the prov inces bordering Italy. It is these non Germans, especially the Slavs, whom Beust called "barbarians." The Aus trian parliament is cunningly juggled in the membership of its elective lower house. At the sitting last spring the first meeting since the war broke out a rabid pan-German was elected to the presidency of the lower house by a vote of 215 to 195 215 Germans to 195 non Germans in a nation in which the Ger mans are In a minority with a ratio of 10 to 18. The electoral law puts about an average of 42,889 Germans in a parliamentary district, while it takes about 65.479 Slavs to elect one deputy. Polish Galicla Is a fragment of Po land, the ancient kingdom destroyed by Prussia, Austria and Russia near the end of the eighteenth century ; Galicia was Austria's share of the loot. The Bohemians, with their neighbors, the Slovaks of Moravia, are descended from the sturdy race of John Huss and of Comenlus. Their forefathers unwisely- elected the head' of the house of Hapsburg as their king in 1526, and the ancient constitution of St. Vaclav soon was disregarded, and the liberty loving Czechs became little more than helots of their Austrian overlords. The house of Hapsburg Is not noted for fidelity to engagements. Serbs Virtually Serfs. The Croats, Serbs and Slovenes are a remnant of the great Serbian mon archy of the fourteenth century, which was overrun and crushed by the Turks. Austria protected them, gladly used them in luer armies, and In turn made them virtual serfs. They are essen tially the same people and speak the same language . as the Serbs of Serbia and Montenegro. The Italians In Austria are re minders of the time when a large share of Italy was under the Austrian yoke. The wars of 1859, 1860 and 1866 drove the Hapsburgs out of the Italian penin sula, but It will take another .war for the rest of the really. Italian lands,' Italia Irredenta to be secured . from the ancient tyrant. Hungary, too, has by no means , a homogeneous Magyar population. There are some 10,000,000 Magyars, perhaps 2,O0OAXXi: tier uns and 8.000.? 000 Slavsri Roumanians "and i Italians. The Hungarians like the Germans of Austria, manage their electoral dis tricts so as to keep a majority of par liament always Magyar.; ,: v;' .-. But besides the two parts of the duaV monarchy there are. the imperial prov inces of "Bosnia arrd Scrzegovina,-' with a population of about 2,000,000, nearly all Serbians. These provinces by the great general , European treaty of 1878, by which the war between Rus sia and Turkey for the : liberation of the races of the peninsula from the age-long tyranny of the Turks was ended, were turned oyer to Austria Hungary to administer,, with the spe cific provision that they should not be annexed. They were, to, be held in trust. In. Justice both provinces should have formed a part of the kingdom of Serbia, to which country they naturally belonged by race, language and his torical traditions. But Austria-Hungary was determined ; to keep Serbia weak, and in 1908 the dual monarchy annexed them, in flagrant disregard of the treaty of 1878, v Slavs Kept in, Subjection. Here, then, we have " the essence of Austria-Hungary : An autocratic Ger man monarchy; a pretense of parlia ments with elective lower houses ; a German minority dominant in Austria by aid of the German, monarch ; In Hungary the Magyars keeping down the Slavs and Latins with an iron hand. Now comes in the German kaiser. In order to save control from Ham burg to Bagdad, which is absolutely essential to the plan of German world dominion, there must be complete Ger man ascendancy in the Balkan penin sula. Dependency of Bulgaria under a German king ; dependency of Greece under a king ruled" 6y his queen, tne kaiser's sister ; Serbia crushed and made a dependency by conquest would secure this object. The crushing of Serbia was the keystone of the arch. Control of Austria Necessary. But German control of the Balkan lands could not be effected without ab solute German control of Austria Hungary. The alliance which has now prevailed for so many years is not enough. The bonds must be drawn far closer, and in such a way as to make Germany really the controlling force; to make German will law throughout Austria-Hungary. A con federation of the two countries in a cus toms union Is the first step to be de vised. This was the well-known device by which Prussia paved the way for political supremacy in north Germany. Then these economic ties would soon be supplemented by others, which would in fact make the dual monarchy, though under the guise of an alliance, little more than a satrapy of Prussia. The war has brought the two powers a long way on this path, the Austrian armies being under German command and Austrian policies being determined now in Berlin. This is the Mittel Europa of the paoGWftfl(in; schemes, to which reference has been made ubove. Thus we see clearly the sequence of the Prussian plan : To dominate Austria-Hungary, . then to dominate the Balkan peninsula, ken to dominate Turkey, then' to dominate the world. And the keystone of the arch is Austria-Hungary. Security Only in Complete Victory. The world can be made safe from the Trussian piratical attack only, first of all, by a military victory so complete that German militarism Is definitely overthrown; in the second place by adequate securities against another such wanton breaking of the world's peace. What these securities must be can be determined definitely only after the victory is made sure. But, whatever else may be decided to be necessary, surely the most essential thing of all will be to prevent Germany frpm add ing to her military power the millions of subjects of Austria-Hungary, the great majority of whom are not Ger man, are not Magyar, and who are themselves inherently , hostile to all schemes of German aggression. How can this insurmountable bar be put across the path of the German in vasion of the East? In either of two ways. Should the dual empire give freedom to Its Slav subjects and become a federation of three German, Magyar and Slav or of four German, Magyar, North Slav (Bohemian-Slovak), and South Slav (Serbo-Croat) there would be no dif ficulty. If this reorganization is refused,-then the only alternative for the safety of the world will be found in a disruption of the ramshackle Austro-Hungarian empire of oppression. The Poles of Galicia should gpja a free Eoland not, a German-ruled Poland, but an Inde pendent Poland. The Bohemians, with their fellow Czechs in Moravia and Si lesia, should be restored, to their old freedom. The South Slavs should go where they belong, to a greater Serbia. The Roumanian Latins of Transyl vania should go to their own kirf of Roumanla, and the Italian Latins o Italy. These' free .and strong states will be rescued from Austrian; tyranny, and will put an impassible barrier be tween Prussianized Germany and Con stantinople, j Wifc -ij&iV,i . ... Premises Cannot Be Trusted. Some such guaranties the . world should secure to prevent another Prus sian war of eonquest; s : Treaties .cannot bind the present German state or the present Austrian state.-: We remember; the Belgian treaty and Prussia, the Berlin treaty of 1878 and Austria, t Then, too, we must recall tbat Aus tria is quite as guilty of bringing on the world war as is Germany. ; Tbe ar rogant ultimatum to Serbia, obviously not intended to be met In such a way as to make peace possible,--was the act directly of the Austro-Hungarian gov ernment. 1 - .
