DRIVEN TO ATROCITIES, GERMAN
COMMANDER TELLS CORRESPONDENT
By E. ALEXANDER POWELL.
(By Cable to The Chicago Tribune.
Headquarters In tho Field of the
Ninth Imperial Army, Chateau Lafero,
near Ilenalx, Belgium. Three weeks
ago tho government ot ilolglum re

So far as I nm awaro I am tho only
correspondent In tho present war who

tho ranks of the advancing Gorman
army, who has dined as a guest of thu
Gorman army commander and his
staff, and who has had tho progress
of tho army on tho march arrested In

This unusual experience came about
In a curious and roundabout way.
Invited by General Von Boehn.
After an encounter In the streets ot
Ghent last Tuesday between a Ger
man military automobile and a Bel
glan armored car, In which two Ger
man soldiers wero wounded, American
Vlco Consul Van Hoe persuaded tho
burgomaster to accompany him Im
mediately to tho headquarters of Gen
eral von Doohn to explain tho circum
stances and ask that tho city should
not bo hold responsible for tho unfor
In the courso of tho conversation
with Mr. Van Heo General von Doehn
remarked that copies of papers con
taining articles written by Alexandor
Powell criticizing the German treat
ment of the Belgian civil population
bad como to his attention and said ho
regretted he could not have an oppor
tunity to talk with Powell and give
him the German version.
Mr. Van Hee said by a fortunate
coincidence I happened to be In Ghent,
whereupon the general asked him to
bring me out to dinner the following
day, and issued a safe conduct through
the German lines.
Though nothing was said about a
photographer, I took with me Pho
tographer Donald Thompson. As there
was some doubt regarding tho pro
priety of taking a Belgian driver Into
the German lines, I drove the c-.r
In Midst of Kaiser's Men.
Half a mile out of Sottehem our
road debouched Into the great high
way which leads through Lille to
Paris. We suddenly found' ourselves
In the midst of the German army. It
was a sight never to be forgotten.
Far as the eye could see stretched
solid columns of marching men, press
ing westward, ever westward.
The army was advancing in three
mighty columns along threo parallel
roads. These denso masses of mov
ing men In their elusive blue gray
uniforms looked for all the world like
three monstrous serpents crawling
across the countryside
American flags which fluttered from
our windshield proved a passport in
themselves and as we approached the
lose locked ranks they parted to let
For five solid hours, traveling al
ways at express train speed, we mo
tored between the walls of the march
ing men. In time tho constant shuffle
of boots and the rhythmic swing of
gray-clad arms and shoulders grew
maddening and I became obsessed
with the fear that I would send the
car plowing into the human wedge
on either side.
Miles of German Soldiers.
It seemed that the ranks never
would end, and as far as we wore con
cerned they never did, for wo never
saw or heard the end of that mighty
We passed regiment after regiment.
brigade after brigade of infantry, and
after them hussars, uhlans, cuiras
siers, field batteries, more infantry,
more field guns, ambulances, then
siege guns, each drawn by 30 horses,
engineers, telephone corps, pontoon
wagons, armored motor cars, more
uhlans, the sunlight gleaming on their
forest of lances, more infantry In
spiked helmets, all sweeping by as
Irresistible as a mighty river, with
their faces turned toward France.
This was the Ninth field army and
composed the very flower of the em
pire, Including tho magnificent troops
qt the Imperial guard. It was first
and last a fighting army. The mon
were all young. They struck me as
being keen as razors and as hard as
nails. The horses were magnificent.
They could not have been better. The
field guns of the Imperial guard wero
almost twice the size ot any used by
Thirty-two Hones Draw Howitzer.
But the most interesting ot all, of
courso, were the five gigantic howit
zers, each drawn by 16 pairs of horses.
These howitzers can tear a city to
pieces at a distance ot a dozon miles.
Every contingency seems to have
been foreseen. Nothing was left to
chance or overlooked. Maps ot Bel
gium, with which every soldier is pro
vided, are the finest examples ot
topography I have over seen. Every
path, every farm building, every clump
of trecB, and every twig Is shown.
At one place a huge army wagon
containing a complete printing .press
was drawn up beside tho road and a
morning edition of Deutscho Krclgor
Zeltung was being printed and distrib
uted to the passing mon. It contalnod
nothing but accounts of Gorman vic
tories, of which I nover had heard, but
it Boemed greatly to cheor tho men.
Field kitchens with emoko pouring
from their stovepipo funnels rumbled
down tho linos, serving steaming soup
and coffee to the marching men, who
hold out tin cups and had them filled
without onco breaking stop.
Covered Wagons Hide Machine Guns.
Thoro wero wagons filled with army
cobblors, sitting cross-legged on tho
floor, who wore mending soldiers'
shoes Just as if thoy wero back in
their llttlo shops in tho fatherland.
Othor wagons, to all nppearanccs ordi

Finally Reaches Von Boehn.
It was considerably past midday and
wo were within a few miles of tho
French frontier when we saw a guidon,
which signifies the presence of tho
head of the army, planted at tho en
trance of a splendid oldtchateau. As
wo passed through the iron gates and
whirled up the stately tree-lined drive
and drow up in front of the terrace a
dozen officers in staff uniform came
running out to meet us. For a few
minutes It felt as If we wero being
welcomed at a country house in Ameri
ca Instead ot at the headquarters of
the German army In tho field. So
perfect was the Held telephone service
that the staff had been ablo to keep In
touch with our progress along the
lines and were waiting dinner for us.
After dinner we grouped ourselves J
on tho terrace In tho self-conBclous
attitude people always assume when
having their pictures taken, and
Thompson mado somo photographs.
They probably aro the only ones of
this war, at least of a German general
and an American war correspondent
who was not under arrest.
Then we gathered about tho table,
on which was spread a staff map of
the war area, and got down to serious
business. The general began by as
serting tliat the stories ot atrocities
perpetrated on Belgian noncombatants
were a tissue of lies.
"Look at these officers about you,"
he said. "Thoy are gentlemen llko
yourself. Look at tho soldiers march
ing past in the road out there. Most
of them are fathers of families. Sure
ly you don't believe they would do the
things they have been accused of."
Explains Aerschot Crimes.
"Three days ago, general," I said,
"I was in Aerschot. The whole town
now is but a ghastly, blackened, blood
"When we entered Aerschot the son
of the burgomaster came Into the
room, drew a revolver, and assassinat
ed my chief of staff," the general said.
"What followed was only retribution.
The townspeople only got what they
"But why wreak your vengeance on
women and children?"
"None has been killed," the general
"I am sorry to contradict you, gen
eral," I asserted with equal posltlve
ness, "but I have myself seen their
mutilated bodies. So has Mr. Gtnson,
secretary of tho American legation
at Brussels, who was present during
tho destruction of Louvaln."
"Of course, there always Is danger
of women and children being killed
during street fighting," sold General
von Boehn, "if they insist on coming
Into the street. It Is unfortunate, but
it is war."
Data Startles General.
"But how about a woman's body I
saw, with her hands and feet cut off?
How about a white-haired man and his
son whom I helped bury outside Semp
Btad, who had been killed merely be
cause a retreating Belgian had shot a
German soldier outside their house?
There were 22 bayonet wounds on the
old man's faco. I counted them. How
about tho llttlo girl two years old who
waB shot while In her mother's arms
by a uhlan, and whoso funeral I at
tended at Boystopdenberg? How about
tho old man who was hung from the
rafters in his house by his hands and
roasted to death by a bonfire being
built under him?"
The general seemed somewhat
taken aback by tho amount and exact-1
ness of my data.
"Such things nro horrible, it truo."
ho said. "Of courso, our soldiers, llko
soldiers of all armies, sometimes get
out of hand and do things which wo
would novor tolurato If wo know it.
At Louvhin, for exnmplo, I sentenced
two soldiers to 12 years' penal sorvl
tudo apleco for assaulting n woman."
Louvaln Library Incident.
"Apropos of Louvaln," I remarked
"why did you destroy tho library? II

"We regretted that ns much as anj
one else," answered the genoral. "II

wo could not savo it."
"nut why did you burn Louvaln at
all?" I asked.
"Ilecauso tho townspeople fired on
our troops. Wo actually found ma
chlno gunB In some of tho houses.'
And smashing his fist down on the
tnblo, ho continued: "Whenever civil
ians llro upon our troops wo will
teach them n lasting lesson. If women
und children Insist on getting in the
way of bullets, bo much tho worse foi
tho women and children."
"How do you explain tho bombard
ment of Antwerp by Zeppelins?" '
Explains Zeppelin Bombs.
"Zeppelins have orders to drop their
bombs only on fortifications uud sol
diers," ho answered.
"Ab a mntter of fact," 1 remarked,
"they only destroyed private house
and civilians, several of them women
If one of those bombs had dropped 20C

Bofore we began our conversation 1
asked tho general if Mr. Thompson
might be permitted to take photo
graphs of tho great army passing
Five minutes later Thompson wob
whirled away in a military motor car
ciceroned by an army officer who had
attended the army school at Fort
Riley. It seems they stopped the car
beside the road in a place where the
light was good, and when Thompson
saw approaching a regiment or bat
tery of which he wished a picture ho
would tell the officer, whereupon tho
officer would blow his whistle, and
the wholo column would halt.
"Just wait a fow minutes until the
dust settles," Thompson would re
mark, nonchalantly lighting a cigar
ette, and the Ninth imperial army,
whoso columns strotched over the
countrysldo as far as tho eye could see
would stand in Its tracks until tho air
was sufficiently clear to get a picture.
Thus far the only one who has suc
ceeded In halting the German army is

Show Thompson Gunnery.
As a field battery ot the Imperial
guard rumbled past, Thompson made
eomo remark about tho accuracy of
the American gunners at Vera Cruz.
"Let us show you what our gunners
can do," said tho officer, and gavo an
order. There were more orders, a per
feet volley ot them, a bugle shrilled
harshly, the eight horses strained
against their 'collars, the drivers
cracked their whips, and the gun left

swung into position in an adjacent

LESSON FOR SEPTEMBER 27
ItKATUNO LRHSON-John 8:14-21.
GOLDKN TEXT-I come quickly: hold
fast that which thou liaat, tlmt no ona
tako thy crown, ltov. 3:11.
Tho lessons of tho first quarter of,
this year's cyclo chiefly present Jesus
as tho great teacher. Thoso ot tho
second quarter principally concern tho
aspect of tils snvlorhood, whereas dur
ing this present quarter wo bco him
mainly as tho great Judgo. Thoso les
sons havo dealt with matters which
occurred during tho Inst months, wo
may almost say tho last weeks, ot his
life. During that "year of opposition"
ho Ib met with tho most determined
hostility nnd persecution. Neverthe
less ho proceeds against it all with
calm assurance, In strict Justlco nnd
without n shadow ot faltering.
This rending lesson contains tho
most celebrated nnd familiar verse In
tho bible. In it wo see:
A mighty Ood-'Tor OoA"
A mighty motive "Ho loved"
A nilBhty ucopo "Tho world"
A nilKhty sacrifice "So savo Ilia only be
A nilKhty escape "Not porlah"
A tnlKlity glft-"Etcrnul life."
Wo hero see Jesus set forth in grace
and whllo it does not declare that he
came to Judgo, yot, In tho pnssage are
eot forth thoso principles upon which
ho is constantly tho Judgo, and whore
by ho will eventually act in tho last
and final Judgment.
In tho first lesson, that ot tho labor
ers, Jcaus taught his dlsclplos the sov
ereignty of God. God has a right to
do as soometh best to himself. In this
parable wo seo tho truo motive In serv
ice, viz., fidelity and not for hope ot
reward. , Jesus thuB prepared the, way
for his denunciation and Judgment, ot
Lesson two, which deals with the
self-seeking disciples and tho solt-sac-rlflclng
Savior, Is Intended to teach
that there is but ono path to true and
lasting greatness, and that Ib the path
of sacrifice and sorvlco.
Tho story of Bartlmaeus, lesson
three, Is a beautiful and touching ex
hibition of his activity of mercy even
In the midst of the approaching Judg
ment. In the fourth lesson is presented the
.parable of tho pounds and tho talents,
JBoth are spoken to the disciples and
tooth deal with their responsibilities to
himself in the coming days. Our eter
nal reward depends upon our acts and
attitudes In the life that now Is.
Lesson five presents Jesus as the
Messiah prophesied of In the Old Tes
tament. It deals with the story of his
coming Into Jerusalem. Entering thus
In such a manner demands our atten
tion for It foreshadows the timo of his
Judicial activity with referenco to the
people and the nation.
The next five lessons may bo said
to deal with this ministry of judgment
In lesson six we soe some of the
preparatory signs and teaching. The
blasting of the fig treo and his cleans
ing of the house of God are both sym
bolical. Lesson seven teaches us that if wa
fail to be faithful in the kingdom
which has been entrusted to us it will
certainly be taken from us.
Lesson eight presents the parable ot
the marriage feast in which Jesus un
folds the plan of God's invitation and
its human rejection in three stage.
The ninth lesson is a political in
quiry which our Lord answered by
setting forth all of tho Important state
relationships according to the funda
mental fact of the kingship of God.
"Render unto Caesar the things that
are Caesar's, and unto God the things
that be God's." No other answer of
his better reveals the infinite wisdom,
skill and tact of our Lord.
In lesson eleven, the parablo of the
virgins, we are taught that the Lord
Jesus is coming again and we must
watch and be ready against that immi
nent event This lesson also suggests
the responsibilities of his people dur
ing his absence.
The twelfth lesson is a prediction of
the Judgment of the nations and re
veals the way by which be is to begin
the administration which will ensue
when that kingdom is established.
There is a kingdom prepared from the
foundation of the world for the right
eous and a punishment prepared for
the devil and those who willfully
choose to do his will. Those who cast
their lot with his must go with him
to spend eternity. They themselves
sit in Judgment upon themselves, Judge
themselves not worthy.
The chief value ot these lessons dur
ing this quarter Ib in the revelation
which they give us of the fact that
when our Lord mado that last Journey
to Jerusalem it was not to tho death
of a victim, ono who was mastered by
circumstances, who could not escape;
but as a king. As he marched along
that pathway "setting his face stead
fastly," he perfectly understood, and
resolutely faced a passion by means
of which he was accomplishing tho
purposes of God and beyond the dark
Bess ot which he saw the brightness ot
ultimate victory and glory tor mankind.
