Money Not Wanted
Some $500 daily is being received from those
entitled to it, but who are refusing their just
due from the people, who would wish them to
take and keep it. No payment bv the govern
ment is less grudged than the $200,000,000 an
'tiual allotment - to cependents from the pay
ments due men in all the services who .-.re

31 relatives sent back to the War Risk Insur
ance Bureau the checks coming to them in due
course. One mother wrote that when the gov
ernment is asking for billions it is no time for
her to be taking money from the government.
"I am' glad enough to give my boy. I am able
to work, and do not think I ought to take it."
There are those who ought to blush when they
read a letter ke 'that. There are none who
ought not to be thankful that the nation has so
many such mothers and sons.

work is wrong.' The money is fairly earned,
and fretly paid, .with thanks for value received.

can b put to, next to sustaining the health and
strength of those to whom they are paid, is
the purchase of thrift stamps, or savings certifi
cates, or Liberty bonds." The certificates help
the country as much as the bonds, and return
a larger yield on the investment. Such patri
otic relatives as this old mother can use their
money in that way with clear consciences, and
with the approval of those who are doing less
for their country than the;'. New York Times.

OUT OF THE DEPTHS.
Word comes of the delirious joy of the peo
ple of Lille when the Allies entered that city.
Similar accounts have come concerning the lib
eration of other communities lrom the yoke of
the invader. It must be true of Ostend, Bruges
and Zeebrugge, and generally of that region
which is now freed from the grip of the Blonde
Beast and restored to liberty. Americans can
only very faintly conceive ot the situation of
these people, who for the last four years have
been under the most cruel military rule ever
known. Nothing that we can imagine exceeds
the hardship and the terror of life where every
thing depends on the. whim or the mood of the
military commander, whose word is final law.
The full tale of outrage and brutality may never
be made up; enough is known to justify the
belief that nothing has been spared these vic
tims. Americans may always have pride in their
share of Belgium's story. To our generosity is
due the, fact that the occupied territory in that
land did not repeat the story of starvation that
came from ruined Poland. From the first
weeks of the war the Commission for Belgian
Relief has depended almost exclusively n
American contributions. Food and clothing
have been furnished from this country, and now
we know what hitherto has only been suspected,
that frequently the Germans turned this ma
terial to their own uses.
Finally, American soldiers in the field have
aided in changing the situation, and before the
strengthened armies of democracy the hordes
of the tyrant are fleeing. These occupied cities
come up from the depths of subjugation because
we have been true to our ideals, because we
have made great sacrifices for our beliefs. We
can rejoice with the citizens of Lille and the
other towns, but we cannot rest until the world
is made safe against the possible repetition of
Has Germany Forgotten?
s Machine Gun to Make Peace.
Colonel Roosevelt is justified in his assertion
that the machine gun, and not the typewriter,
is the implement with which to make peace.
Military experts see no evidence of German col
lapse. Retirement from occupied territory has
been conducted on a scale that implies main
tenance of discipline by the Germans, and a, de
termination to resist to the end. Nothing in
this will detract from the brilliance or persist
ence, of the attack made in pursuance of the
great campaign. The Allies are gaining be
cause of the skill of direction that has charac
terized their operations, and not because the
German will to resist has broken down. Mili
taristic autocracy is not ready to make the full
concession demanded of it, nor is it likely that
the terms laid down by the president will be
met as long as the Central powers can maintain
in the field a force capable of such resistance
as reasonably may be expected from the Ger
man army on the west front. Until the mili
tary situation has advanced much farther, talk
of politicians, eagerly seeking to throw up a
screen of words, should be discounted.
Hitch Up Both Horses.
A farmer who set out to do a big day's work
in the field, leaving one of his horses in the
barn, depending on the other to drag a load hat
called for the full strength of both, would be in
exactly theTfix the democrats hope to keep the
Nationally we face a situation that calls for
the closest of unity in thought and action, the
employment of every force at the command of
our people, but the democratic leaders fail to
see the problem from any angle but their own.
In shouting that the only way to aid the presi
dent is to vote the democratic ticket they are
emphasizing their ridiculous claim that the war
is a party issue, that it has been and will be car
ried on by democrats and that the only way to
succeed is to continue that organization in con
trol. Hie truth is precisely 'opposite.
The war is a two-party job, and the repub
licans have recognized this from the very begin
ning, backing up the president and giving him
support when his own party had failed him.
Now, as never before, the country needs the
constructive ability of the republicans, not only
for the prosecution of the war to a victory for
freedom and liberty, but for the solution of the
tremendous problems that will come with peace.
A vote for a republican congress is not a
vote to interfere with the wise conduct of the
war, but to insure that the president will not
be hampered in his plans, and that the country
will not suffer because of incompetence when
the war is over. Hitch both horses to the load
and it will move faster.
. . Samuel Abbott in Philadelphia Ledger.
. Pijil Sheridan was with the Prussian army in
(1870 as military representative of the United
States. As the French surrendered at Metz he
watched the proceedings from his saddle at the
side of Prince Charles. If any man then living
was qualified to pass judgment on the fighting
quality of the victorious German army it was
that same fiery Phil, who but five years before
had led thousands of union saoers in their vic
torious sweep around Richmond. It is on rec
ord that Sheridan turned to Prince Charles and
said: "Give me two divisions of the Sixth
corps (Sedgwick's) of the Army of the Potomac
and 1 could cut my way out through your Prus
sian army." '
Has Germany forgotten? Certain recent
events precipitated by American boys in khaki
on the French front should cause the German
general staff to turn to pages of its war histories
and refresh his memory as to the fighting stuff
that was in our fathers of the Blue and the Gray.
For the backbone of our army today is the col
lective spine of the boys who are lineal descend
ants of an infantry that rinked among the very
best that ever njarched ai d fought on this globe.
That is a pretty tall statement, and we will but
tress it with facts. Here are the percentages of
the casualties of the victors in six of the world's
severest battles fought on European soil:
Zorndorf, 1758 Prussians and Austrians, 37
Eylau,. 1807 French and Russians, 28 per
Berodino, 1812 French and Russians, 24 per
Waterloo, 1815 Allies and French, 20 per
Vioville, 1870 Prussians and French
Plevna, 1877 Russians and Turks,

Vice Admiral Sir Alexander
Ludovic Duff, who is now in Am
erica as a member of the British
war mission headed by Sir Eric
Geddes, has had a long and distin
guished naval career, winning hon
ors in active fighting and filling
numerous responsible executive
positions. He was born in Scot
land in 1861 and entered the navy
at the age of 20. From 1911 to 1914
he was director of the mobilization
division of the Admiralty War Staff,
and from 1914 to 1917 he was rear
admiral of the fourth battle squad
ron, during which time he took part
in the battle of Jutland, being men
tioned in dispatches and receiving a
C. B. for his services. During the
past year Admiral Duff has served
as assistant chief of the British naval

Since Eylau no single battle in history has
equaled in percentage of losses the American
casualties of Chickamauga. We give the per
centages of losses of the victors in three great
civil war battles:
Antietam, 23 per cent; Gettysburg, 20 per
cent, and Chickamauga, 27 per cent.
One should note as a side light, an important
one, that the typical European struggle of" major
importance usually ended in the complete rout
of the vanquished army. The flight of Napol
eon's army from Waterloo is the classic exam
ple. In our civil war, after Bull Run, there was
virtually no retreat of a beaten force in confu
sion. Lee was ready, almost willing, to invite
a union attack after Gettysburg, either on July
4 or 5, 1863. Time and time again a defeated
federal confederate army stood in its tracks

Editor of The Bee: Reading some
of the controversies between states

was unable to answer all her ques

sister how she liked the debate and
was answered, "Thy didn't debate;
they just quarreled: just what one
side said was so the other side said
not so, and then they said the other
fellows were liars and talk like that."
And then she eaid they acted just
as if they didn't have any sense. It

said that the one mental attribute of the Armv
of the Potomac that aroused the admiration of
the Army of the Northern Virginia was its
steadfast courage under defeat, its willingness
to try and try again to storm impregnable in
trenchments, to fight to the last bayonet thrust,
although for months it did not know what to
expect from its leader or who that leader would
be on the morrow.
The men of the Blue and the Gray were
"shock troops." We see with us today a few
white-haired remnants of those wonderful boys
of 1861-65, and we forget that' 1,151,438 enlist
ments in the union army were mere striplings
18 years old. But what terrific fighters those
boys became in the red ordeal of war! An histor
ian of the battle of the wilderness tells us that
the average age of the thousands of soldiers that
lay dead and dying Blue and Gray side by side
during that mournful night in !64 was under
20 years. They were "shock troops," for they
knew but one way to fight, and that was at close
quarters, after the roar of musketry, with bay
onets and clubbed rifles. An Englishman, Capt.
Cecil Battine, Fifteenth King's Hussars, said
a few years ago, "The Americans still hold the
world's record for hard fighting."
Changing the German Constitution.
One of the interesting sidelights on recent
developments in the war comes from Copenha
gen, in form of an announcement of changes in
the constitution of the German Confederation.
First of these carries no change of real impor
tance. It adds the Bundesrat or state council
and the Reichstag to the emperor in the matter
of declaring war, save in cases where the empire
has been attacked. This is practically the pro
vision under which the present war was de
clared, the principal change being to add the
Reichstag to the other two powerssof the em
pire. More important is the alteration of the
treaty-making power, which hitherto has been
vested in the emperor alone. Now the peace'
treaty must be acceptable to the Bundesrat and
Reichstag also. This palpable attempt to popu
larize the present constitution of the empire can
be considered only as a belated move to gain
support of whatever element exists in Ger
many demanding a more responsive and respon
sible government. The kaiser must give his;
assent to the amendments before they become
effective, but that they have the endorsement of
the state council, which is the real legislative
body of Germany, is assurance that imperial
consent to their promulgation will be forth
Other amendments of a like character, which
really make no material difference in the form
of the empire, may be expected, that finally the
kaiser and his party can approach the embattled
democracies with a pretense that autocracy has
been disarmed of its power to make war, and,
therefore, has ceased to be a menace? Such
transparent subterfuges may satisfy the German
mind, but will scarcely be found to measwe up
to what President Wilson had in view when he
declared that autocracy must be destroyed,
'" ..- . ' ' -. - ' ' , - ... -.
Has Germany forgotten? We invite it to
turn to the records of losses in battle suffered
by federal and confederate regiments:
The First Minnesota lost 82 per cent of its
men on the second day at Gettysburg in 15
minutes. And, kaiser, take notice, this loss rep
resents killed and wounded. There was no man
The Twentieth Massachusetts, at Fredericks
burg, lost 68.4 per cent in one day, and again
there was no report "missing."
The First Maine heavy artillery at Peters
burg lost over 70 per cent of its men in seven
minutes of fighting.
The 141st Pennsylvania, at Gettysburg, lost
76 per cent of its roster of officers and men.
N'ow for the boys in gray. All four of the
percentages that follow represent actual losses
in killed and wounded, with not a man "miss
mg : ,
First Texas. Antietam, 82.3 per cent.
Tenty-first Georgia, Manassas, 76 per cent.
Twenty-sixth North Carolina, Gettysburg.
7J.7 per cent.
Sixth Mississippi, Shiloh, 70.5 per cent
To giye one an idea of the savage intensity
of the fighting durinjr the closine vear of the
civil war it is recorded that Lee, with 55,000
men, disposed of 61,000 of the Army of the Po
tomac before he was crushed into submission.
Let us go back to July, 1863, and imagine
a great northern daily appearing with the casu
alty lists of Mead's army alone, with no mention
of Lee's sacrifice at Gettysburg. It would re
quire all the columns of the Ledger to give the
union ,namesx Has Germany forgotten that
story of heroism? And those furious weeks in
May and June. 1864. when for days the two arm
ies were locked in bitter battle near Richmond,
days that shape themselves in the words, "The
Wilderness," "Spottssylvania," "Cold Harbor,"
when shadowed in the names of the boys in
blue and in gray that went down never to rise
again, should make the shiver of fear chill the
marrow of the most Prussian of all the Prus
sians. , For America repeats itself under the
Stars and Stripes.
Germany may have forgotten the years of
1861-65. But the sons of the men who shook
hands at Appomattox, will write a chapter in the
history of the world that future Prussians will
read with awe.
Crumbling Walls of Bigotry
Palestinian war dispatches a -few days ago
intimated possible military co-operation between
Druses and British forces of General Allenby.
The significance and importance of the hint may
well have escaped general attention, since the
world at large knows little of the Druses. The
Druses and Maronites inhabit a district in Syria
which includes the fastnesses of Mt. Lebanon.
The Druses proper are probably mainly of Arab
origin, about 90,000 in number, and profess a
religion mingling Christianity and Islam with
tribal faiths and traditions of great antiquity.
They are exclusive, intolerant, fierce and fatal
istic, and for ages have maintained their social
entity with the utmost jealousy. Never so far
as known have these peculiar people conde
rcended to co-operate in any way with any other
people. They have been bloody persecutors of
Iheir neighbors, the Maronite Christians, and in
f860 the European powers intervened, and in
1861 imposed on the district a nominally Chris
tian governor, under Turkish overlordship. The
Druses are as opposed to orthodox Islam as to
If they have broken down their exclusive
ness sufficiently to co-operate with the British
liberators of the Holy Land it may not be un
reasonable to expect future results of impor
tance to the scholarship of the world. For in
