OUR BIG JOB STILL AHEAD.
' ' Bulgaria has accepted terms tor an armistice
as dictated by the Entente, which undoubtedly
means that a separate peace with that country
will be similarly concluded. It will be on a
basis of unconditional surrender, but we may
reasonably assume it will contain nothing of the
barbarous exactions or diplomatic deception
practiced at Brest-Litovsk, or the savage terms
forced down Roumania's throat by the Huns.
Justice will be the foundation, and not revenge.
Turkey must soon follow Bulgaria. With
the road to Germany blockaded, supplies cut off
and armies almost exhausted, the sultan cannot
hope to hold out much longer in an unequal
struggle. This naturally leads up to Austria as
the next weakest member of the quartet, still
capable of much resistance, and bound to Ger
many so closely as to practically destroy any
independence of action in matters of negotiation.
While affairs have thus turned definitely in
favor of the Allies, it is quite plain that the big
end of the job is still ahead. Germany must
be conquered. Defection of the useless ele
ments of the combination will not end the fight
ing ability of the kaiser, and he may be de
pended upon to resist to the utmost. It be
hooves our people, therefore, not to relax in
effort, nor to waste time in talking peace, until
our boys have reached Berlin. Only when
Prussian militarism is prostrate, when its power
for harm is finally and absolutely broken, will
the world be ready for peace.
Victory on the southern front is being sup
ported by steady gains on the western. The
armies of right are slowly pounding down the
strength of the Hun. Stand fast now, and give
the boys the support they need, both moral and
Clearing the Way for Suffrage.
President Wilson's appeal to the senators that
they dispose of the pending suffrage amendment
by adopting it as a war measure will probably
clear the way for that long blockaded proposal.
Opposition to it has been encountered chiefly
among the democrats from the southern states.
Republicans are pledged to let the states pass
on equal suffrage, and it was only because of the
overwhelming vote given the amendment by re
publicans in the house that it was adopted there.
Mr. Wilson's argument that it should be passed
as a war measure will aid the recalcitrant and
reactionary democrats to so salve their con
spiences that they can perform this belated duty,
which the republicans have stiported as an act
of justice, in order to support their pretense of
backing up the president. The main point is
that it will give the women what they have
asked for fifty years, and remove one great
cause of discord from public life.
Germany's Counterfeit Indignation.
The imperial German government has for
mally threatened the United States with re
prisals, unless the shotgun is abandoned as a
weapon by our army. What a guffaw must
have resounded through Valhalla when the,
shades of all the dead and gone Huns got this
Remember that the first bomb ever dropped
from an airship in war was dropped by a Ger
man on a hospital at Antwerp.
The first passenger steamer ever sunk with
out warning by a submarine was the Lusitania,
and she was flying the American flag.
Edith Cavell was executed, and after her
death the military governor of Belgium issued
an edict to make her act a crime.
Germany first employed poison gas in war
fare. Countless deliberate attacks have been made
on Red Cross hospitals back of the line.
It was German soldiers who deliberately cut
the throat of the first American boy to die in
this war, as he lay wounded in No Man's Land.
It was Germany that armed its soldiers with
spiked clubs to crush the heads of wounded
men, and thousands have been so slain.
All these things were done in direct violation
of the rules of civilized warfare, as formulated
at The Hague and elsewhere in agreement be
tween the great powers of the world.
Keep this in mind, and then you will under
stand how spurious is the pretense of Germany's
indignation at the shotgun.

Your hardware man does not want to offend

All paper must be saved to help win the war.
The War Industries Board has declared that we
must all save paper; that the production is only
about 50 per cent of the requirements forfwar
industries; that we must stop using many grades
of paper in order that paper-making machines
may manufacture paper which is required to
move food and clothing to France. Profligate
use of paper has been abnormally stimulated.
Curb that appetite for wasting paper.
Every bit of wrapping paper that you save,
every bit of naper that you save, saves coal,la
bor, chemicals and emphasizes your patriotism.
"Figures won't lie, but liars will figure," and

under democratic administration is a little hard
for them to get around, however.

Illustrating what the German agents were
aiming to do by the purchase or subsidizing
of American newspapers.
"New York. March 31. 1915. Dr. Bernard
Dernbtirg, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, New York City
Your Excellency: In re the purchase and pub
lication of a daily newspaper in this country
in the interests of Germany and the German
government, I heg leave to submit to Your Ex
cellency the following report, in pursuance of
our recent conversation:
"The expenses of the war news service, com
bined with a considerable .decrease of advertis
ing owing to business depression, have seriously
affected the financial status of several papers
in this city, already made sufficiently precarious
by the excessive competition of the last 15 years
or so. With the standard price of the American
newspapers down to one penny, they have
shown a serious loss on each copy sold, which
has had to be met entirely out of advertising
profits. The consequence has been, and this
state of affairs continues, that most of the daily
papers in New York have been published at an
annual loss which has had to be met by constant
loans in Wall street, which as a rule is content
to take its profits indirectly, in abstention from
hostility to its doings, if not in positive support
(Then follows a detailed discussion of the
New York new paper field.)
"The price quoted for the Evening Mail by
its editor, who controls the stock, is $1,000,000.
Whether control of the Globe can be had at all
is a matter for cautious inquiry. Of course, an
evening paper can be turned into a morning
paper, if preferred. Certain it is that, generally
speaking, and with the exception of the Evening
Post, the morning press has far more influence
on political opinion in this country than the
evening papers, which are held to be more read
by women. Hence their superiority in the ad
"In all this I have assumed that the purpose
is to buy a paper already existant and not to
found a new one. The chief advantages of this,
aside from the invaluable Associated Press fran
chise, which inhered the paper, however often
it changes hands, the chief advantages of the
purchase of a paper already in existence, how
ever precarious its state, must be obvious.
"There is a name already familiar; there is an
organization in working order, easily remod
eled; there is a complete plant all advantages
to be had for much less than it would cost to
found a new paper, organize its own news serv
ice, find its editorial and business staff, estab
lish collections with advertisers, newsdealers
and so forth.
"It is perhaps little to the purpose now to
reflect upon what might have been done 20 years
ago. One of the most sensible schemes then
proposed was the purchase of the Staats Zeitung
and the conversion into an American paper.
The stock of this paper is rapidly changing
hands just now, but who or what is behind this
I have been unable to find out. The present
editor declares that he still has the controlling
interest safely in his hands. Whether the pa
per will be able to retain the circulation which
it has regained since the beginning of the war
is open to serious doubt. It might be well to
bear the Staats Zeitung in mind for future con
sideration. Some 10 years ago there was much
talk of the purchase of the Tribune. This is
now out of the question.
"In ordinary circumstances a loss of from
$250,000 to $500,000 per year would have to be
provided for, but I believe that owing to my
connection with certain interests in this country
this could he greatly reduced, if not wiped out
altogether, by attention to newspaper manage
ment. "Prohibition is seriously occupying the minds
of the brewers and distillers of the country. It
is not a question of temperance, which they ad
vocate, but of the actual prohibition by law of
the sale of beers, wines and liquors. A paper
that would not be hostile to the personal liberty
of the citizen to drink in moderation what he
pleased could count upon the powerful support
of the brewers and distillers, who command al
most illimitable capital, and what is more means
of giving the paper in question a circulation
large enough to attract advertisers. Add to
this a discreet appeal to every German society
in the country, for support by its members, and
we could easily count upon a national daily cir
culation of 500,000 copies. This, to be sure,
would be a circulation among German and German-Americans,
whereas what is wanted is na
tive American readers, but if this German cir
culation is built up discreetly as I suggest, the
man in the street will only be impressed by
numbers. A large circulation widely adver
tised would impress the native American and
lead him to take the paper. And meanwhile, a
deficit would be changed into a profit to be used
for further propaganda.
"The interests to which I refer have repeat
edly consulted me on this very subject of a
newspaper not hostile to their industry, and I
know that they would be more than ready to
give their support to the plan now in hand.
"This is a general survey of the field.
Financialy the moment is favorable to the plan
under discussion. The newspapers have suf
fered heavily from the war, and for some of
them the load is beginning to be too heavy.
Politically the transaction would have to be
handled with the utmost delicacy. No suspi
cion of the influences behind it should be al
lowed to reach the public. And the newspaper
world is like a sounding board.
"I shall be delighted to keep myself at your
excellency's disposal in case vou should desire
further facts. ALEXANDER KONTA."

Hun Crime and Punishment
Prince Bismarck, haying drunk much beer
and brandy on one occasion, made the wise and
"Revenge is a delicacy that must be eaten
It would be well if all the allies, as custodians
of the future of the world, pasted that piece of
advice in their hats for future reference. Our
danger is not that we may lose the war for we
are winning hands down but that we may not
be deliberate enough in fitting the punishment
to the crime.
Thi Hohenzollern must go and the Haps
burger must go. President Wilson has insisted
that we cannot trust the first; the case of Italy
proves that we cannot trust the second.
The mealy-mouthed advocates of peace by
talk hate the thought of revenge. In the case
of the middle empires "justice" and "revenge"
are convertible terms. Nearly every family in
France has lost a man. The British have buried
900,000 soldiers of their own. Our losses are
growing with the worst yet to come.
A more terrible, a more disastrous crime
than that of starting the war would be that of
the statesmen who, by bringing about a bad
peace, should cause these men to have bled and
agonized and died in vain. New York Herald.
It Is most unfortunate that
mfasles is usually considered a
trivial disease. That this is not the
case is shown' by the fact that 40,000
out of 150,000 inhabitants of the Fiji
Islands died from measles when the
disease was unfortunately introduced
from a British man-of-war. The ex
periences of the last winter show
thut the mortality is well above 10
per cent, even in the United States.
Measles is of preat importance to
us because it exists at present upon
the Station and in all probability
will increase during the present
month, due to the large number of
recruits now be'n received. Measles
is also of importance due to the fact
that very few people have any nat
ural resistance to the disease, and if
exposed will, almost without excep
tion, contract the disease.
The first symptoms of measles are
very much like those of ordinary
cold sneezing, running at the nose,
soreness of the eyes, and a cough.
It is during this stage and before
the eruption breaks out that the
danger of spreading the contagion Is
greatest. The contagion is spread by
the material discharged from the
nose and eyes ami tne nne spray
thrown out by coughing, and for this
reason it is of great importance that
the men should sleep behind the
health screens and thus prevent re
ceiving the infection or transmitting
lt to others.
A man in this stage of the disease
who attends the Young Men's Chris
tian association, public gatherings
and moving picture shows is a great
source of danger to his shipmates
iind It Is of the greatest importance
that all men suffering with the
symptoms of a cold in the head and
eyes should report immediately to
the doctor for examination.
What's In a Name?
Omaha, Sept. 30. To the Kdltor
of The liee: I arise to a point of
information, and 1 think this will be
of interest to many of your readers
as well as to myself. Yesterday I
was told by a friend that the real
name of Harvey Newbranch Is "Har
vey Knest," with a dot over the "e,"
according to the Swedish language,
He explained to me that "knest" in
Swedish means "new limb," and that
"Newbranch" was the name taken
on account of its euphonious sound
ing. Taking the name of "Newllmb"
might place Harvey in the position
of getting out on a limb and then
sawing lt off, which I am not accus
ing him of doing. I merely wish to
know whether his real name is
"Knest," as stated by my informant,
who says he received the informa
tion from Harvey's brother.
