The years before the war ln an.
there were altogether, in Germany
colonics throughout the world, only
24.IMMI whites, and they were nearly
all holdiers and olliee holders.
The German government may have
its own ideas uhout the tlesirainiuy
of colonial expansion, but the Ger
man nation has sedulously refrained
from expanding into the space provi I
ed for it. While the Kaiser and his
empire-builders were seeking their
much-advertised "place in the sun'' in
Africa and Asia ami the islands of
the sea, their people were finding it
in America.
The Germans have never been a
colonizing race. Given colonies, they
have refused to live in them and do
the rough pioneer work that is so
congenial to Englishmen and Ameri
cans. They ar pioneers in business,
but not in developing utural re
tumrces. Will it lie any different af
ter the. war?
In yesterday's report he army was
"t:C, short of war stn ngth. Yesterday's
recruititi.tr. reported today, obtained
1. 11? men, placing the army .".! out
