GERMANY'S LATEST BID FOR PEACE,
Foreign Minister von Kuehlman's speech to
the Reichstag is of interest chiefly for the fact
that he confesses Germany's inability to win vie
tory by the sword. His further postulate, that
Germany is likewise invincible, can not be ad
mitted. It rests on his attitude, presumably that
of the government, of studiously ignoring the
military situation. For example, his boast that
the Austrian army in Italy had "nailed down'' an
important part of the allied forces takes no note
of the depressing and disastrous defeat inflicted
on the invaders at the Piave. Nor does he cor
rectly interpret the checks experienced by the
kaiser's army in France, unless it was this that
moved him to assert that Germany can not be
defeated in the field.

onto Russia, England and France in turn is puer
ile, in view of the revelations made by Prince
Lichnowski, substantiated by Viscount Haldane
and Prince von Buclow, and more than supported
by the "Willy-Nicky" letters and other proofs of
German intrigue, duplicity and deceit, brought to
light since the collapse of Russia. Even Ger
mans scarcely are to be fooled any longer by this
sort of misrepresentation.
Most serious of all his statements is that Ger
many will exact pledges of sincerity from its foes
when the time for negotiations comes. Viewed
in the light of Germany's record of dishonesty
and double-dealing, treachery and betrayal in
every form of international relationship, these
expressions of von Kuehlman are pitiful. A na
tion without truth or honor, foresworn and dis
graced, Germany will find peace when ready to
accept terms prescribed by a victorious combina
tion of great nations, pledged not to rest in the
war until liberty founded on justice is made
secure throughout all the world.
Details, such as the disposition of Poland, the
rehabilitation of Belgium and France, the restora
tion of Russia, Serbia's revival, and other of the
many issues that have come out of the war, will
be settled after the main question is disposed of.
This is the crushing of Germany's military power
and it will be accomplished.

President Carranza that Germany's U-boat cam

, "What It Means to Be an American."
). Replies, some of them splendidly direct, all
( well written and loftily inspired, are coming in as
i answers to The Bee's request for definitions from
. ts readers of "What it means to be an American."
- Here is a theme on which the ablest of our states
nen, the most gifted of our orators, poets, preach
ers and editors have spent loving care and im
pressive thought, but without exhausting the sub
ject, nor placing it where the humblest of Amer
ican citizens can not express himself with equal
force in explaining what it means to him. You
C do not need to be master of more than the ordi
nary man's vocabulary; a few simple Anglo-
Saxon words are enough to tell the central
.thoughts of Americanism; the Declaration of
' Independence is couched in plain language, and
. the glory of Lincoln's Gettysburg address is its
simplicity. And the most impressive tributes
extant paid to our flag and the institutions it
;. stands for are in the plainest language. What
The Bee wants is the thought of the people, set
! forth in words of the people, that good Americans
may know one another through their aspirations.
NaUing It Down for Kansas City.
Be sure Kansas City is not going to let any
thing weaken its grip on the Federal Reserve
bank for this district not if it can prevent.
Kansas City knows that it captured the reserve
bank away from Omaha by exerting a peculiar
pull which our representatives in Washington,
in, bad with administration, were powerless to
counteract. Kansas City realizes that all the
arguments and strategic advantages for the lo
cation of the bank are with Omaha, and that it
is an anomoly for Missouri to be the one state
in the union favored with two federal reserve
Recognizing these conditions and looking
ahead to the future, Kansas City is taking steps
to fortify its position by persuading the govern
ment to construct "a monumental building" in
that city in which to house the bank and give it
a permanent home. As a result of well directed
efforts, the Kansas City Federal bank directors
have already approved the selection of a site and
made a stipulation to acquire the property for
$500,000. The building, we are told, will be a
granite structure of impressive character, costing
in the neighborhood of $750,000, and the further
information is given that under any but the "im
perative circumstances" now existing (depart
ments scattered and shortage of vault space), it
is scarcely likely the erection of such a building
would be considered by the government until
after the war.
The real "imperative circumstances," which
Omaha must see, though Kansas City is not apt
to admit, is the outstanding fact that the Federal
Reserve bank for this district naturally belongs
here, and unless nailed down right away may
some day be relocated where it belongs.
Moving in Russia's Interest
Arrival of Alexander Kerensky iu England
will stimulate public concern in Russia. This is
well timed with other steps that apparently are
proceeding with full understanding between the
entente group, looking to the restoration of order
in the land of the bolsheviki. Von Kuehlman's
statement to the Reichstag that disorder had
attained an equilibrium among the contending
factions is too vague to support any conclusion
as to what Germany proposes. It is a reasona
ble assumption, however, that disorder has at
tained its maximum, and that further disintegra
tion of the moral and material elements of the
great empire will be a result of failure to resume
normal conditions. This resumption must be
assisted by stable forces from without, and thus
the duty of the allies is made plain. Russians
must be rescued from themselves, lifted out of
the slough into which they plunged through
their own excesses and their inertia turned
again into constructive energy. All appears to
be ready, save the assent of the United States to
the general plan. "Watchful waiting" prevails
in Washington, but it may be overcome through
a better understanding of what really is de
manded for the salvation of the people we want
to help by placing them where they can help

Semi-Official Sidelights on Doings of the Boys "Over There"
"We of the A. E. F. whe wear the service

time on 'how things are going back in the

or more and our knowledge of conditions is
a little vague.

magazines from four to eight weeks old.

With these uords the Stars and Stripes,
official newspaper of the American expedi
tionary forces in France, opens an editorial
shell drive on the knockers and pessimists
at home. Reading further reveals good
reasons for the outburst:

seemed to be plenty of nine-pound guns to

said we hadn't any arms had misfigured, too.
The all too evident exaggeration of those
two statements encouraged us to believe that
there was at least the same amount of ex
aggeration in the others. Then came word
of the tremendous success of the third Lib

More than that, the noneffective rate in
the A. E. F. and that means the number o

form their duties because of sickness has,
since the second week in February, been
smaller than it has among American troops
in the tnited btates. W.trt the exception o
one week, the venereal rate has also been
smaller in the A. E. F. since January 1 than
among troops still at home.
One important fact about what diseases
we really have had is that we brought them
all from home. They are the old, familiar
complaints, some trivial, some serious, but
not one 01 them is a disease which we might
not have contracted just as easily anywhere
oetween tne Atlantic ana facmc.
The number of cases of controllable dis

States, but also from month to month in the

stars and atripes says the story of the
encounter has entered into the songs and
legends of the company and the part the
members like best to tell is the part about
the bolo knife. To their mind it is the
weapon of weapons, and had you passed
that way the other day, you might have seen
one of Johnson's company sitting with his
legs crooked around a bit of granite that had
once been a tombstone. On its surface he
was sharpening his bolo, and, save when he
stopped to test its edge with his tongue, he
crooned to himself a negro chant with so
much of Africa in it that you could have un
derstood only the oft-recurrent refrain:
Bush Germans, Bush Germans, wese
gwine-a git you yet!"
Bush Germans is the negro name for
the Huns. Nearly all Yanks prefer Bushes
to Boches as a term of reproach, but with
the negroes it is "Bush Germans." This
phrase you will hear in all their songs, of
which the weird jazz discords first bewildered
and then fascinated the French in that part
of the world.

Democracy's broad charity is exemplified
in tins incident:
ins name was junus Kramer, late pri
vate ot the Mtth company, 61st German in
fantry. He was captured by the French
some time ago and was found to be in ill
health at the time of his capture. He was
removed to an American hospital near the
French prison camp, and there carefully
tennea until, on May u, he died.
There was no minister of his church, the
German Evangelical Lutheran, within many
miles of the hospital. Consequently the
American Protestant chaplain was assigned
to take charge of the funeral services. He
was about to make his ararngements in the
usual way when a novel thought struck him.

They carried the body of Julius Kramer,
late private in the kaiser's army, to his grave
in an American ambulance, the same as is
done for the American dead. His six com
rades trudged along beside as a guard of
honor and acted as his pallbearers, lowering
the coffin into the earth. At the graveside,
with bowed heads, they recited the Lord's
prayer in their own language; then they faced
about and, behind the ambulance, made their
way to the hospital and then to the camp.
Decay of German Morality
That all Germans do not lie all of the
time is evidenced by the speech of Herr
Braun, a socialist member of the House of
Deputies, who called attention to the decay
of public morality and the alarming increase
of juvenile criminality in Germany. Herr
"Everybody cheats, steals, grabs, from
jailbird to court chamberlain, who cheats the

the war lasts the worse it becomes."
This is not to be wondered at when we
consider the evil example set by those in au
thority, from the kaiser down, whom every
Teuton is commanded to reverence and obey.

an act of disrespect to a sovereign who does
not hesitate to break his when occasion de

With thy heart's blood and mine
Should be required to cleave the clasp

you locked your friendship door:
But flaming aword, and death and grief,
Rent all forevermore.
Dread ahrapnel cleft the wall In two,
Twin your estate ana mine.
And made a path that'a leading
From mv hearthstone In thtnu-
Its fragmenta tore our hearta until
Our wounda became aa one;
And teara of sorrow often fall
For another woman'a aon.
Oh, lister with tha Jeweled hand,
And alster from the slum.
Our sons are brothers "over there,"
Where beats the martial drum:
The overall, the lowly birth,
The social cream or froth.
Forgotten are, and all akin
Who wear the khaki cloth.
Together wa must walk, my friends, .
In step and side by side:
Tba velvet palm, the calloused one.
In tender clasp shall hide.
United atrength will make us brave,
And love shall keep us true:
The wall of caste, dissolved in teara,
Must never rise anew.
