There were mass meetings at which
thunderous shouts for vent up.
Owing to the hermetical i;e.l:ng of
the frontiers only these hints filter

The unrest which has b-.-guu to
p". eep Germany is the echo, advices
indicate, of Phiiip Seheidemann's ans
wer to Count Hertiing's hues! ;h. In lb" hearts of miliieuis of
Germans who in bygone years cele
brated the anniversary of th dr rul
er's Dirt li with enthusiastic glorifica

ing. Seheidemanii'-j speech has light
ed it.
For the first time, not only i:: t lie
war, but in T0 years, doubt of the
army's finality and capability as the
arbter of the nation's fate has been
publicly raised by a. recognized lead
er of millions, and more than this,
the doubt has been published far
and wide in the empire, because the
censorship shackles had err eked und
er previous socialist onslaughts.
Political observers here have long
since agreed that any real up. ising
in either one of the Teutonic em
pires must, begin in their armies
mainly because every ahl"bod;ed man
is under arms. The root of such a
rising, however, they agree, is lack
of confidence, the feeling that new
offensives will share the fate of for
mer ones, will be undecisive and only
ntail new terrific losses.
