Tho Election Had Its Effect.
Editor at Tribune:
Ten days ago thero as much smid
in the public pross in regard to tho
Influence the elecUonNvould havo up
on tho war; 1t wa stated generally by
tho administration press that a re
publican victory would cause Joy in
Berlin, and thereby prolong tho war.
Tho result of tho election is an
over-wholntlngly majority In tho na
tional houso of representatives, and
a safo majority in tho senate."
Tho olectlon evidentally did havo an
effect upon tho war. Tho kaiser has
isfnce abdjfcated, and tho armlsttlco
is signed.
In my opinion if wo hnd not hoard
so much two or threo years ago about
"kooping us out of war" "too pi'oud
to fight" "I did not rniso my boy to be
a soldier," etc., that tho Lusitanm
would nqyer havo boon sunk, and not
an American soldier would havo cros
sed the sea.

I1I11 Flees to Holland.
Tho arrival of William Hohonzollorn
tho former German omporor, with his
wifo and oldest son, has caused ex
citement and much uneasiness among
Dutch authorities and tho public of
that country, says a Rotterdam dis
patch, It Is unofficially stated that
tho rofugees did not obtain authoriz
ation from Holland to entor tho coun
try and crossd tho frontier in tho
neighborhood of Eyadcn becam'so tho
Dutch neutrality guards wero weak at
that point'.' It is said that tho Dutch
government facos difficulty as to its
treatment of tho unwolcomo guests.
Many people contend that William
Hohonzollorn and his oldest son aro
still' Gormnn soldiors and must bo in-
torned.j Others urge that they should'
bosont back to Germany. Othors ar

Gee! I wish there
was something I could do!"
WHEN you think of what the boys "over there" are doing
to help the great cause of freedom, wouldn't you just
give anything to be there and help them? Wouldn't you fairly
jump at the chance to do anything in the world to back up ,
the men that are fighting?
You can't be there yet, of course,
but there is a place for a boy who
wants to help our country, a place
where he can show the stuff he is
made of as well as he could over in
There is a new opportunity for
boys who want to do their share to
ward winning the war. It is called
the Victory Boys. Its motto is, "A
million boys beliinc! a million
The organizations for which the
Victory Boys are working provide
the soldier with his movie theatre,
his church, his club, his store where
he buys the little everyday things
feed him: when he is tired, they
comfort him.
When you enroll with the Vc
tory Boys, you pledge yourself to
go out and earn money for this great
work that the soldier needs so much.
Ask your neighbors for odd jobs.
Tell them of the great cause you
are working for. If you can pledge
yourself to earn $20, remember that
for five months you are taking care
of one soldier your soldier.
Wear the Victory Boys button
it is a badge of honor. It means,
that you are doing everything in
your power to help your country
