The German people were pretty
strong for the Kaiser as long as the
war wa3 going their way. If a mir

gain back again what they have
been losing, the German people
would be strong for the Kaiser and
the war lords again. It is when
the Kaiser is on the wane that we
hear the talk about democratizing

entitled to about as much consid

chase more consideration by ditch

THE GERMAN MIND.
Now comes Dr. Solf, the German
Foreign Secretary, to prove that the
German mind remains unchanged
in defeat. Still it sees life only
from the German angle. Appealing
to President Wilson, Solf says:
We had to accept the conditions,
but feel It our duty to draw the
President's attention most solemn
ly and with all earnestness to the
fact that the enforcement of the
conditions must produce among the
German people feeling contrary to
those upon which alone the recon
struction of a community of nations
can rest, guaranteeing a just and
When German soldiers were com
mitting every crime known to the
Decalogue in Belgium, France and
Russia, and committing them by or
der of the German High Command
as parts of a cold calculated system,
what regard did Mr. Solf and his as
sociates give to the feelings such
acts must produce among the Allied
peoples? Did he reflect that they
must be "feelings contrary to those
upon which alone reconstruction of
a community of nations can rest,
guaranteeing a just and durable
peace"? Or did he care?
Did Bismarck consider the point
when he wrested Alsace-Lorraine
from France and extorted the five
milliards of "indemnity" for a war
which he himself provoked by an
act of forgery? Did Bethmann
Hollweg think of the effects on
"community of nations" or as
"guaranteeing a Just and lasting
peace" when he tore up the fam
ous scrap of paper?
Does Solf think there is one set
of principles applying to Germany
when her sins have overtaken her
and another covering the rest of the
nations against which she sins?
AMERICA AT THE HEAD
OF THE TABLE?
Of course it is quite within the
rights of the President to attend
the peace conference if ho so de
sires. Under the constitution ho
has the initiative in making treaties
subject to the limitation that they
must have the approval of two
tbirds of the Senate.
But, irrespective of his right to
attend the conference, there will be
many Americans who will question
his wisdom in doing so. After all,
the United States got in only at the
end of the great war. While Amer
ican troops were the determining
factor and while they did magnifi
cent work, the burden which they
and the country bore was relative
ly small compared to that borne by
the Allied nations. An engineer
officer writes the Outlook from
Franco that "General Pershing and
many other of the best men under
him are doing everyhting they can
to keep our people at home from a
boastful spirit, and to have a mod
est view prevail of what has been
accomplished by the American Ar
my in France." The number of our
dead and wounded, he says, is less
than 2 per cent of the total sacri
fices made by our allies.
While America has a vital inter
est in a just settlement at the peace
table, it recognizes the fact that
the problems involved are far more
momentous to France, England and
Italy than to the United States. A
mistake in the settlement might re
sult in ruin for one of them. It
would only slightly affect America.
They are 'the neighbors of the Cen
tral Powers. America has the pro

Under these circumstances tho
President's decision to attend the
conference will he receivd with mix
ed feelings. Undoubtedly, there will
be widespread regret.

as well as premier. He will be the
