ARTHUR N. DAVIS. D. D. S.
(Copyright, 1918. by tho McClure Newspa
If he did not nctunlly order the sink
Ing of tho Lusltunlu, therefore, I am
convinced that he was thoioughly
nwure of the plan to blow It up ami
sanctioned It. That he could hnvt
averted it If he had been prompted tc
to do so Is dourly indicated by another
Incident which left u very deep im
pression upon me.
I was informed by one of Ihc Ger
man uvlutors that plans luid been
made to drop gas bombs on London
which contained a deadly gas which
would penetrate the cellars of houset
In which civilians were In the hubll
of hiding during air raids.
Shortly before tbla hideous Idea wtu
to be put Into effect the .papers an
aounced that bombs of tula charnctei
had been dropped by the allies on
Baden-Baden, but that, forttinately,
they hud fallen In a clump of woods
In the center of the town nnd had fail
ed to explode, which hud given the
Germans an opportunity to tuke thcni
apart and ascertain their nature.

they contemplated some fresh violation
of the rules of international law and
the dictates of humanity.
It happened that one of my patients
who resided In Hiulen-ltuden called to
see me the day after the bombs hrro
b'en dropped on her town, and shi
t'lld Lie ,i.l aliout It.

the bnnlhs anil they hiniled' In the
woods, and we hnf-Wwo had been at
tacked. What a dreadful thing for
them to do!"
What a fooINh thing for allied air
planes lo do to ppend n whole morn
ing .studying the 'layout of the town
nnd then to drop those deadly hnmln
on a clump of woods where they could
not possibly hurt anyone, and how
carol ess of the Germans not to molest
them while they were engaged In their
Hut the point I wanted to bring out
was this: these guB bombs were never
used on London!
"Just ns everything was In reudlncss
for the raid," the ofllcer told mo re
gretfully, "we received orders direct
from tiie kaiser to hold off I saw his
Bignnturo to the order. Of course,
there was nothing for us to do but
comply, but If we had had the kaiser
there, I believe we would have strung
him up by the neck I We still have
those bombs, however, and you may
he sure they will yet be ucd!"
For some unknown reason the knlser
stopped the use of those lethal gat
bombs for the time being. Why didn't
he move to save tho women and chil
dren on the Lusltanla?
When I went back fb Ilerlin In the
fall' of llrt.aftOr ilt to the, United
&tatcs7 the ltajsir was very Villous to
ascertain from nlcV'Jiist now Ahlerlch'
felt' towards th6 wa'r.' ' ' " "
I ioiij him that before the sinking of
the Ltisl'tnnlii Amerlcjlh opinion had
been divided. There liad been inany
who were strongly pro-ally, there had
been others who wore openly pro
German and there had been still oth
ers who maintained an absolutely neu
tral attitude. After the Lusltanln
tragedy, however, there had been a
distinct change In public feeling, I told
him, practically the whole country
having become decidedly tmtl-Uermiin.
"Ferhnpi if the U-boat commander
had known so many woium and chil
dren Were on board," wns the kaiser's
only coinni'Mit, "he might iu-t have sent
forth the torncilo which fcm tho vessel

Of courso U kidser .i r.v that if
the U-boat coi 11 uinder's filers were
to sink the L'.iianin, liisobeillence
upon his part would have h-it but one
course open for him: suicide. If, on
the other hand, tho kaiser meant to
Intimate that the U-boat coiuumhtlur
Mink the Lusltanla on his own Initia
tive or without special Instructions
from his superiors, tho fact still re
mains that tl10 kaiser could undoubt

tho kaiser's direct responsibility for
the sinking of tjie Lusltanla, certain It
