Has Consented to Resignation of
Foreign Secretary;
IS KAISER'S SCAPEGOAT
U Cait Aside Because of Statement
to Reichstag That Military Alone
Could Not Wim
Copenhagen,' July 9. Emperor Wil
Ham has consented to the resignation (
of Dr. Richard von, KuyUilmann, the
German foreign secretary,, according
to the Wolff news bureau or Merlin.
Dr. Richard von Kuehlmann he
came foreign minister on Anoint 0.
1817, succeeding Dr. Alfred I'. M
Ziinmermann, whose retirement close
ly followed the exposure- of his plot
to Involve the United States In war
with Mexico and Japan In the even:
that this country showed any Inclina j
tlon to Join tho entente allies, ur
von Kuehlmann's conduct of tho for
elgn office appeared to be more than
usually Biiccessful until June 25 last
when he appeared before the Reich
stag to discuss the political aspects of
the situation facing Germany.
During his address he said: "In
dew of the magnitude of this wai
a:id the number of powers, including
those from overseas, that are engaged
Its end can hardly ,bo expected
through purely military decisions
alone and without recourse to diplo
matic and negotiations."
'fhls statement, which flatly con
tradlcted speeches by the German em
peror, who but a short time befon
had referred to peace being v by
"the strong German sword" wai re
cejved with consternation In the
Jtelchstag and with sharp criticism
hy the country. It was later reported
that Dr. von Kuehlmann's words had
been approved, by Gen. Ludendorff
the German commander on the wes
tern front. This brought to notice
rumors or rriction between Ludendorff
ami the German crown prince and UW
roterie, who comprise tho radlca'
pan-Germanic elements in official
circles.
Soon after the nijdrfss in he
Ite!chitng,vin-became ' common knowl
edge that Dr. von Kuehlmann's re
tlremeht from office would be forth
coming. Some reports were to the
effect that his address was intended
to inform the German peo.y that
their armies could not win tne war
and was deliverod with tho cogniz
ance of the emperor, who. when hr
saw what a storm had been stirred
P resolved to make von Kuehlmann
the scapegoat.

THE COURAGE OF FRANCE
Incident Showing Supreme Devotion
to Great Cause
Following is an extract from a let
ter from France, written by Captain
Percy Hall Jennings, dated June 11th.
1918:
"Saturday night 1 had dinner with
eight other officers and a little inci
dent happened that you would be in
terested in. It was at a restaurant.
and we were at a large table, in the
center of the room. Over in one
corner we had noticed a French poilu.
He was decorated with the Mldallle
Militalre, Legion of Honor, Croix de
Querre, with about ten palms and a
star or two on It, and the medal they
give them for wounds.
"When we were about half through,
he got up to go out, being helped by
the lady with him. He had only one
inn and only one leg. As he went
by our table, we all stood up and
Baluted. After he had gone the
waitresse d'Hotel came rushing over,
exclaiming 'Bon pour les Aniericlans
bon!' She leaned over me and asked
if I understood French. I told her 'a
little,' and she said: 'He has been In
the war since the beginning. He has
lost his arm and his leg, and his three
brothers, and his father. He. has
nothing left nothing at all.' There
you have a complete dlscrlptlou of
war, right in that little story."
This may interest your readers asj
an illustration of the many little acts
of appreciation and respect shown by
our officers to the common French
soldiers those splendid men, who
have fought with such superb devo
tion for France and the whole 'civi
lized world for nearly four years.
Such incidents help to cement the
nations together in this great crisis
of tho world's history.
