CHANGING HIS TUNE.
Since the last peace speech by the
German foreign secretary, von
Kuehlmann, it has been established
that the words used by the official
had been previously studied with
care by Emperor William and his
military aides. The speech, which
is interpreted as a German admis
sion that the central powers crtnnot
win a victory by their sword, was
no doubt sent out as a peace feeler.

When the noise of our own Inde

away it would not be amiss to re
member that July 14 is Franc r s in
dependence day. It was on that day
in 1789 that the French peopl tore
down the bastile, long the visible
sign of generations o ryranny. With
its sour, dark rooms of stone were
those who opposed autocracy. The
masses, long oppressed by the Bour
bon monarchy, finally arose the
realization of their own rights and
freed these martyrs of democracy.
It was a dramatic day. Slaughter
and crime had so long held the city
of Taris in its grip that in the streets
blood ran like water. Nor was
France's independence won with less
suffering than America's independ
ence. Generations of suffering pre
ceded July 14, 1789, and dark days
followed for many months. As it
was in this country, so it was in the
land of the fleur de lis. The sons of
France fought desperately to win
their freedom, for the priceless flow
or of liberty is not to be bought
And while America celebrated her
Independence day and while France
is soon to celebrate her day of free
dom, the soldiers of democrat-' are
carrying on the great fight, th last
great struggle to battle down the
Prussian bastille of autocracy. And
so on July 14, let the peorla of
America remember that one hundred
and twenty-nine . years ago the
French people became our allies in
the war for democracy.
SIX HOURS ARE SIX TOO MANY.
Among the planks in the new so
cialist platform is one demanding
that nobody be required or allowed
to work more than six hours a day.
The a&piration therein expressed
will strike a sympathetic chord in
many a breast outside of socialistic
circles as well as in them. Indeed,
to probably a majority of the world's
inhabitants, six hours of toil seems
too much for any single day or any
single week, month or year, fcr tha
If the socialists were wise, there
fore, they would proclaim, as: the
ideal toward which they strive, the
total abolition of labor. Its attain
ment would be aa practicable as
that of other ideals they do pro
claim, and on dreams there is no
need to put a limit. To accept the
thought of working six hours a day
is but a weak compromise with

rocks of disaster, it Is logical that
the kaiser should change his tune.
What this Prussian chieftain
would like to do is to get the allies
talking peace with the hope that
they will cease prosecution of the
war. Peace with the kaiser could
mean nothing but an armistice, and
for that reason Italy, France Eng
land and the United States will never
speak of peace with anyone whose
sympathies are with the Ho'enzol-
lerns. The kaiser's plea to wait and
balk it over will forever fall on deaf
ears. Lincoln Star.
