Germany malnUina her official
policy of secrecy. Chancellor Mi
chaells, in speaking before the
reichthag, has once more refused to
atate Germany's -war alms and un
dertook to defend the government's
policy of secrecy.
He stubbornly reasserts that "to
state the government's purpose
would injure Germany's interests."
So the situation remains practically
the same in spite or the exchange of
notes through the Vatican ana the
vague feeler thrown out by Germany
respecting the evacuation of Bel
glum. The world knows precisely
what the allies are fighting for and
what they intend to do when the
war is iron. The world is left to
guess at Germany's Intentions.
However, there Is little mystery
about it. What Germany started
oof to do. Is one thing. What she
plans now, is quite another. And
In all probability, what she will do
at the peace council, will be distinct
ly another. The world Is well In
formed as to what Germany's par
poses were In starting the war.
Those purposes have undergone de
cided' change through force of cir
cumstances over which Germany had
no control. Like most of the kaiser's
plans, his war alms have been ter-
ribly upset by those unkultured al
But the idea of German political
leaders in keeping their plans secret
'la typically Prussian. They hope to
win by trickery and deceit that
which they cannot win by force of
arms and which they do not dare
to submit to a fair, open discussion
hv the neoDles of the earth. Ger
many has sat In at so many con
ferences which have "maintained
the stability of Europe" that she
has learned the trick of playing na
tion against nation, exciting Jeal
ousies, and playing to ambition o
kings, as the means of guiding the
BhlD of state through troublous
But the world has passed beyond
that stage now. There has been too
much enliglitment from the examples
of other such attempts. The fate of
the world will not he decided at the
end of this war by such poker-game
tactics. Representatives of real de
mocracies existing In all the princi
pal nations of earth will settle the
problems of peace In an open forum
with the people whom they repre
sent looking on and checking the
work: And the result will be the
composite thought of all those peo
ples, based on a recognition of the
rights of all men, which need not
infringe upon the rights of oth
er men, and not the give and take!
of the bickering! of kings.
LIBERTY LOAN WEEK
State of Oregon
October 10, 1917.
Whereas, the American people
have set themselves the task of
raising a second Liberty loan of
from three to five billion dollars.
Twentieth century war requires vast
sums of money. The requirements
are far beyond what the wealthier
country can raise by taxation. The
great nations of Europe have been
at war for three years. They have
floated loan after loan successfully.
It Is unthinkable that this country
should fail with its second loan, six
months after the declaration of war:
Whereas, failure to provide the ne
cessary money would mean failure
properly to provision and equip our
troops. An army Insufficiently equip
ped and supplied is led to unavailing
slaughter. We owe to those who are
to do the fighting to stand behind
them loyally to give them every
thing which will add to their effi
ciency and bring nearer the day of
victory. Let us not fight this war
half-heartedly, with one hand behind
our backs. Let us fight It manfully
in a manner worthy the best tradi
tions of the republic; and
Whereas, Oregon's share of the
fund required Is sixteen and a half
to twenty-four million dollars. This

The government asks us not to con
tribute, but to invest. There Is. no
