Germany as a masterpiece of
"Thrice is he arm'd that hath his
quarrel just. ine justice and
righteousness of President Wilson's
demand upon the German empire is so
apparent, and so clearly stated, that
every true American stands ready to
offer the fullest measure of sacrifice
in its support. There is no division of
opinion and no thought of receding
frcm a single contention. The presi
dent spoke as the heart and the con
science of the nation would have him
speak, and his appeal was in behalf
of that which the whole world must
admit is right and just. Whatever
reply Germany may make to the
president's demands, humanity will
bless America for raising her voice
above the confusion of battle and de
manding that there be a limitation
placed upon the brutality of war.
And feeling confident that their quar
rel is just, the American people calm

of cur demands and make amends, but
firm in their determination to right
the wrongs that have been committed
The American people would a thou
sand times rather remain on terms of
friendship with Germany than break
for a single day the good feeling that
has always existed, but America
must protect her citizens whatever
may be the cost.
Whenever the American flag ceases
to be a protection to American rights
and American citizens, on cither land
or s;ea, then will America cease to
merit the love or devotion of her peo
ple or the respect of other nations.
The future of America is at stake, and
the president, and the people have
undertaken to lead the nation in the
paths of righteousness, and to lift it
to a still higher level than it has been
'wont to travel. Not since the day of
Lincoln have the American people evi
denced such deep and abiding faith in
a president to meet a great crisis, as
they now have in the ability of Presi
dent Wilson to rightly solve the
problems that confront us. And this
faith is founded upon the fact that
the president is known to be a God
fearing Christian man, and that he
has the courage to always do what he
believes to be right. His acknowledg
ed belief in divine guidance in human
s flairs inspires confidence in the
hearts of the people, and his deep
tenm of right and justice is a suf
ficient guarantee that he. will deal
fairly with all nations. And his love
of pace and his abhorrence of war
are guarantees that he will preserve
peace so long as it may be done with
out sacrificing the honor of the nation.
What the next week or the next
month may bring to the American
people, no man can foretell, but this
we know, that the near future is
fraught with far-reaching possibili
ties. Today's worship should be a
supplication for divine directions and
a preparation for the duties that shall
fall upon us. The whole world is ex
pecting America to acquit herself as
a nation of high-minded, justice-loving,
courageous men.
A little sunshine now and then is

The Germans charge that the re

Lusitania should be laid at the door
cf Great Britain. And why not? It
was owned by Iiritish capital, and the
commander knew that his ship would
pass through dangerous waters. It
was not an American ship, and the
passengers who risked their lives to
get across the cean knew the danger
in an cfTort to do so. England and
Germany arc at war, and neither has
any light to risk the lives of innocent
people on their ships during warfare.
