Victor Bcrger's Milwaukee Leader

Speaking of the kaiser, the British
Saturday Review gets a complete es
say on personal government into this
one sentence: "The truth is that the

our neighbors, either. During the

prominent merchant had refused to
give anything. Investigation show

John Dillon, Irish Nationalist lead
er, is accounted an unyielding op
ponent of English rule n Ireland,
hut ho has the statesmanship to see
that the Sinn Fein program of
putting Ireland under the German
heel is not the way to escape the
rule. In speaking against the can
didacy of a Sinn Fciner for Parlia
ment, Dillon declared the Irish peo
ple must correct the impression that
they sympathize with Germany, and
"I am today more convinced than
ever that the Sinn Fein poliey is
calculated to rob Ireland of tho
sympathy of America and all demo
cratic people throughout the world."
That is a true word and the Irish
people would be wise to heed it. The
Sinn Fein view that England's ne
cessity is Ireland's opportunity is a
mistaken view and a traitorous one
when it involves playing Germany's
game; not traitorous to England
alone, but traitorous to liberty ev
erywhere. The Sinn Feiners are not
striving to free Ireland from Eng
land but to hand it over to Ger
many, true irishmen understand
this and are Opposing the attempt.
Americans who sympathize with Ire
land's just aspirations for home rule
underhand it and expect Ireland to
show in this crisis tlKit it is not de
ceived by these domestic enemies
pretending to he Irish patriots.

Labor with fine perspective has
refused to walk into the morasses of
Bolshevist thought so beautifully
camouflaged fcith theoretical soph
isms by the Xearing-Iiiliquit-Berg-er
sort of Socialists.
Labor was wise. Labor knew that
in the lauds to which the "Beds"
would lead them lurked the poison
ed gas of disloyalty, treachery, trea
And with tenacious discomfiture
the American bolshcviki have Kiltie
by little arrived at the conclusion
that their best efforts are sidly wast
ed. It is patent even to the most
abjectly foolish Socialist that Org
anized Labor of the Cnited Stales
stands four-square in its patriotism.
The attempt to prove this a "rich
man's war" died an abortive death.
The effort to prove that "labor was
being exploited" in the war was
laughed oat of existence. The ap
peal to the class instincts revealed
that since Uncle Sam sounded his
war bugles there are no such things
as class instincts, for shoulder to
shoulder the sons of America's rich
are fighting in the trenches by the
side of the sons of America's commoners.
What economic differences there
were in America prior to tho war,
which gave the "Beds" such a har
vest of opportunity for their miser
able propaganda have been consid
erably wiped out by the' appeal to
the primal that is in each mother's
son of us. We have learned amid
the polent things of our times that
we just didn't understand 'each
other's point of view, perspective,
in both houses haa been limited by
the hurly-burly rush of things. In
ishort, we didn't have time (o trv
ind understand the other fellow.
The war has to a considerable ex
tent straightened all of us out. We
have become more thoughtful, more
serious, more just in our concepts,
and as a consequence we have come
to the crossroads where the trail of
Understanding beckons.
Had labor left ith-ciw open to old
suspicions, old sores, old traditions,
old prejudices, old grievances, old
passions it would have been sn easy
mark for the poisoned gas of (he-
Socialistic Autocrats, Nearing, Hill
quit and Uerger.
But Labor in America is too funda
mentally clean and straight to fall
into such a gas trap. It has from
the birth of the American Federa-
tlou' of . Labor bee-n accustomed to'the
gas mask of carelessness in action
and this quality warned in time of
the lurking gases in the Xo Man's
Land of American Bol?hevi3t
thought. -

Pure Malt and Mops Extract
These are the days of temperance drinks.
Although non-alcoholic malt beverages, "near
beers, etc., are now being sold in bottles every
where, they all lack a certain indescribable snap
and flavor. But you dont need to miss these de
sirable qualities. You don't need to put up with
those flat, tasteless, lifeless substitutes.
It is not generally known that a genuine mait
and hops brew non-intoxicating, but with all the
cheer and invigoration can be easily made at home.
Most people think that such a brew can be made
only by a brewer. But a wonderful new process
enables you to make, at small expense, as palatable
and satisfying a drink as you could wish for. Just
get a package of
Peerless Malt a
from any drurjgist and follow the easy directions which
accompany it. You mix the Extract with 7 gallons of
water and you produce, at small expense, a most
delicious, sparkling, temperance lager, entirely unlike
the usual insipid substitutes.
It satisfies the palate perfectly. You will like it let
ter than you did the eld saloon beverage and it will
be far better for you. Malt and hops make the most

healthful drink. Your homemade temperance lager
will be rich in nutritious properties, and you. will UJc
it better than anything you ever drank.
You can keep it in bottles to be used freely by
your family and friends whenever you like. And
think how cheap it is! You can make this tasty,
"tang-y," foamy, invigorating temperance lager for
Cents IPer (SaHoim !
A package of Peerless Mall and Hops Extract enough to
make a brew of 7 gallons will cost you but $1.50. Where
could you ever get a perfect beverage as cheap as that?
Try it now! You will be delighted. Remember, you will
like it better than injurious alcoholic saloon stuff. Yes, iou
will like it beiler. YOU WILL LIKE IT BETTER!

Ti;i; is not a war alone of the.
aimy and the navy; it is' not a war
just for men from HI to 1 years
old; ;it. is. not a :war ''only for thbse
who have tho timu;,and : inclination
to prosecute it. This is the war of
every American 'man, : woman and
.child. This is YOUR war if you
are an American.
Are you doing your bit? Or are
you going ahead as usual, intent
only on your own personal inter

.aying: "The government hasn't
called me "
The government may not have
inenTioned your name. but your
COUNTRY called you the day war
was declared. The defense of your
country is identical with the defense
of your home. The attack of the
German army is identical with the
attack of thugs against your heme
your wife, your daughter. Are you
lotting your neighbor defend your
home without any assistance from
you? Are you that k'nd of selfisfi
coward who lets some one else fight
his battle for him?
When the war is over and people
ask, "What war work did you do?"
wall you be able to answer, "I did my
bit," or will you evade the question
and change the subject?
When the war is over, will you
still have your self-respect or will
you live the rest of .your life
ashamed of yourself and despised by
your fellow men?
Whin the war is over, will you
be honorably accepted by or dishon
orably discharged from society?
If you cannot serve in the army
or the navy, you can help in some
other department. There is plenty of
work for everyone, including YOU.
