GERMAN MONEY HIDES.
Germans and Austrians are busily
sending what money and securities
they have left to Switzerland and
Holland for safe keeping. They fore
see a day of reckoning. Perhaps It
may become necessary for the future
league of nations to issue search
warrants and unearth the tainted
German money to purify It by
putting it to work in the restoration
of Belgium, France, Italy and Serbia.
Quite probably, too, the wealthy
German begins to fear his own peo
ple. The Boche analogue to the Bol-
sheviki will not be a gentle or pretty
creature, if he ever really gets up
spirit enough to revolt. He will

From the hearts of millions of
Americans there goes out to King
Albert heartfelt Joy and congratula
tions ,at the rapid recovery of his
tortured kingdom. As he enters his
cities in triumph the plaudits of his
subjects are echoed from every ham
let in this great land. Democratic
America loves the hero King.
Some months ago Albert was dis
cussing with friends a project in
which tho cooperation of the people
of this country was needed. For some
time the best method of securing
this cooperation was discussed.
Finally the King said: "I think I
have some influence with General
Pershing and will ask him to under
take it for us."
America loves Albert because, like
Victor Emanuel II., he proved him
self "the honest King," because he
preferred to sacrifice a kingdom
rather than his honor, because when
civilization hung in the balance he
risked his all to save it, because for
four long years he has suffered that
the cause of right should not perish.
Modest Albert needs no mediation in
any request he has to make of the
tVmerican people. There is no name
which has for them more magic, per
haps more weight than his.
0UR OWN SHAME.
How can any one read former Am
bassador Morgenthau's story of what
the Turks and Germans did to the
Armenians and still remain without
shame that we have not declared
war on Turkey? From the first
there has been plenty of legal, po
litical and diplomatic ground upon
which to base such a war. Our own
citizens have been outraged, our
property rights invaded, our flag
insulted; and the Turk has been the
willing ally and arch supporter of
our chief enemy. Why are we still
at peace" with him?
Now comes the full moral incen
tive to action. We have read the
story before; it is not new. But
here it is given from sources beyond
possibility of impeachment, beyond
ar.y charge of partisanship, cither
racial, religious or political. Mr.
Morgenthau is no sensation-monger.
Ho speaks- with the fulness of offi
The excuse that a declaration of
war might bring further harm to
some Americans and to American
property still in Turkey is not suffi
cient. The other excuse that we
might gain some diplomatic advan
tage in the final settlement is equally
feeble. Turkey will not be admitted
to any peace conference as an equal
member. The Turk will be one of
the criminals at the bar. We shall
gain nothing by maintaining our
friendship" with him. And if we
could, what shall it profit us if we
thereby lose our own self-respect
and know that, we have failed to
take our stand on the side of hu
manity, decency and right?
WHY THE ANXIETY?
It is, to say the least, curious that
certain publicists and newspapers in
this country find Mr. Wilson's
handling of the diplomatic exchanges
with Germany so much less satis
factory than do public men and lead
ers of opinion among our allies. In
his effort to aggravate an awkward
