Maurice discovers a "ring of sin
cerity about the last message signed
by Dr. Solf which has been lacking
in all the earlier proposals from
Germany." American public opinion
would do well to accept the truth
of this statement and to ponder its
consequences. Doubtless an infusion
of maneuver tdill pervades the Solf
note, but when a government begins
to maneuver with the kind of pawns
which the German government is
now using, its enemies would do
well not to treat the operations
lighfy. The note is a clear and
humiliating confession of defeat
and tupabilify to which no govern
ment would for a moment consent
unless it considers its own life and
that of the nation at Make. The Ger
man nation has stripped itself of all
its pride and in effect prostrated it-i-elf
on the ground before its con
querors. It has done so because, af
ter the arrogant and predatory na
ture of its political policy before and
during the war. it could not recover
its morale unless it confessed in pub
lic that it was beaten and that it de
served to be beaten.
The German army can still fight,
but it cannot tight unless its leaders
tan succeed in substituting a de
fensive morale for its former lust of
power and conquest. Its rulers are
submitting to these voluntary hum
iliations in the expectation either of
obtaining a tolerable peace or, fail
ing that, of securing an intense and
universal popular determination
among the German peope to fight un
til the end in order to save their
nation from being exterminated. If
they can succeed in securing this
feeling, their peace offensive will
have been successful. They will
have perpetuated their own power
by proving to the German people
that only military leadership per
tisted in at all costs can protect Ger
man national safety and enable it
to survive.
It is this new lease of power
which President Wilson, hampered
though lie is by the way in which
the American press and many Amer
ican citizens misunderstand him, is
laboring to prevent the junkers from
getting. The New Republic.

Max's speech in the Reichstag as to
the remaking of the German soul.
The attitude of the Kaiser and his
hordes of brigands Is morally the
same as that of the wretches who
shout, "Kamerad!" and then shoot
in the back the French and British
soldiers to whom they have surrend
ered. With one arm raised in sup
plication for peace, Germany con
tinues with the other hand the scr
ies of inhuman outrages which have
already rendered her infamous for
so long as history shall be read.
Apparently the game is one of
terrorism. We have the expanation
attributed to a high officer in the
German army, in this morning's
newspapers, that the wanton de
struction of towns and cities is
necessary because it is the only way
to stay the Allies' advance. This
is a larger development of the das
tardly crime of placing French and
Belgian women and non-combatants
in front of German troops as a pro
tection against the fire of their own
countrymen. Rut it is onlv one
more proof of the German inability
to comprehend the higher type of
mind. Of course the Allies will not
be stayed by this terrible sacrifice
imposed on them. Rather will they
see the entire occupied region laid
waste than that Germany shall pur
chase immunity for her past crimes
at the price of refraining from new
Rut, assuredly, the time has come
when some steps should be taken to
stop this latest access of savagery. To
President Wilson's fourteen condi
tions of peace should be added one
providing for penalty and compensa
tion for wanton non-military de
vastation. The assessment of the
material loss upon German cities and
towns is a wholly sane and conserv
ative proposition. There will be no
wanton destruction of property, but
the burden of restoration shall be
transferred from the unhappy vic
tims to the brothers and sisters of
the perpetrators of the outrages.
moral participants in the crime. Let
them be stripped at once of all that
may be useful to make good the
damage now being spread broadcast
and let their future and not the fu
ture of Frenchmen and Belgians be
mortgaged to provide that part of
the restitution which can only take
the form of money payment.
I like Keith Neville because he is
human, because, though rich, he
does not flaunt his riches.
I like him because his neighbors
like him. They say he is a true
friend, a loyal citizen.
I like him because he has put
aside his own opinions on different
questions and tried to do the will
of the people.
He was not in favor of prohibi
tion, but pledged himself to the en
forcement of prohibition in case he
was elected and the people voted for
it. He has kept that promise.
I like him because he is neither
foppish nor prudish, but a clean cut
business man.
I like him because he has shown
himself an American in all ways.
I like him best because he had
the sense to select as his wife a lady
whoso beauty is not her greatest
charm. Like her husband she has

Two years ago I did not vote for
Keith Neville for governor. I also
liked Judge Sutton. He was a re

support of Judge Sutton did not

of my office a picture of the gover

his course critically and have come

The government of the United
States, as that of every free govern
ment, is one of parties. There is in
the legislative body always a ma
jority and a minority, or as it i
frequently called, the government
and the opposition. In the United
States the president is the recogniz
ed head of his party. In all the
years of the history of this govern
ment, no one has ever before de
nied the right of the president to
speak for his party or questioned
the propriety of his doing so until
now. Kvcry president has done it,
either in formal communications or
in letters intended for the public.
All at once the republican leaders
have furiously attacked that right,
and it is reported, although the
evidence is not very convincing,
that some voters, who have hereto
fore indorsed the conduct of the
war by the" president, so disapprove
of that act that they are going to
vote for men who have opposed the
president and the war from the be
ginning. The president has written various
letters denouncing members of his
own party for their opposition. The
republicans never objected to that,
but now that, he has said, although
fully acknowledging the support
some members of the republican
party have given the war, that he
desires a party majority in congress
upon which he could rely, he is de
nounced with the utmost bitterness.
Was there ever a republican presi
dent that did not stand by his party
and express his desire for a party
majority in congress? When it is
soberly considered, this outcry will
appear to every reasonable man as
simply ridiculous. World-Herald.

In a letter recently from Sergeant
Carl Dalton, he says, "Tell the folks
in Plattsmouth who really want to
help the fellows in the Front Lines
to help the Salvation Army. Bas
ing the work they do, on the money
they solicit, and what they get in
their money drives, and comparing
their work and the conditions under
which they work with that of other
organizations, the Salvation Army
surpasses any I've seen yet. I'll
leave it to any man in the A. E. F
who has been in the Front Line to
back me in this statement, that
while the Y. M. C. A. and the Red
Cross are good, give the boys

He tells of going over the top; of
taking prisoners, of the souvenirs
he has collected, such as belts, pipes,
helmets, etc.; and of having the big
shells land within feet of him and

Mu h of i no difficulty experienced
yliealth authorities in checking
the spread of the Spanish Influenza
lies in the fact that it strikes its
victim without warning.
Although State and Federal au
thorities are taking every possible
precaution in their effort to stop the
spread of the epidemic, the disease
in many sections of the country has
gotten entirely beyond control and
is claiming its victims by the thou
a nds.
It is universally agreed by all
well informed persons hat the sur
est preventative is to get the sys
tem in the best possible physical
condition in order to he able to
throw off the infection. As has
been previously stated it is possible
to perfect the powers of resistance
of tho human system so that it can
throw off any infection, not except
ing Spanish Influenza, which is one
of the most contagious diseases
Medical authorities agree that
people who are weak and run-down
are the earliest victims of the In
fluenza epidemic. If you find your
self weak or losing flesh, or if you
are in a generally run-down condi
tion, you are really in great danger
if you should come in contact with
the Influenza germ.
As a powerful reconstruct ive tonic
and system builder, Tanlac is with
out, equal. This is a statement of
facts and is fully supported by
recognized authorities. According
to all accepted reference works, in
cluding the United States Dispensa
tory, Encyclopedia Britannica and
lending text books used in the school
of nifdicine, the principle ingred
ients oC Tanlac possesses the most
valuable tonic properties known to
science. This statement is further
pfoven by the fact that millions of
persons who have actually taken
Taeniae have testified to Its extra
ordinary merit as a medicine.
Tanlac restores health and
strength to the. weak and run-down
system by enabling every organ of
the body to perform its proper func
tion in nature's own way. It creates
a healthy appetite for good nourish
ing food, and is an ideal strengthen
ing tonic for persons who are in a
run-down condition and who are
suffering from the after-effects of
Irjfluenza, Grippe or Bronchial
troubles. !
