ANOTHER FAKE PEACE OFFER.
Germany it is reported has submitted another alleged
peace offer through Spain. While no official statement
has been received it is stated the terms are similar to
those heretofore offered, that is that Germany dictate
the peace to suit herself, all required of the allies being
m that they assent to it. It demands the return ot all Ger
"man colonies, the disarmament of Gibraltar and the Suez
canal, no annexations or indemnities on the western
front, the recognition of the Rumanian and Russian treat
ies and the determining of the- fate of Belgium and other
small countries at the peace conference. It is the terms
that might be offered by a victor, who was not overly
generous, but not one that the allies can even consider
from a defeated enemy, for that is what Germany is.
She will fight long and hard yet, but she' is whipped
just the same and her leaders know it. It is suggested
by a military expert that the Rhine, not the Aisne is
the place where peace terms will be considered. This is
putting it mildly, for it is inconceivable that the war is
to end without Germany feeling some of the things due
.to fighting on her own soil. The question of Belgium
will never be left to any peace conference to decide. It
will be one of the pre-requisites to entertaining any peace
talk. As to Russia and Rumania and their fake treaties
they will never be recognized so long as the United States
has a dollar or a man able to fight left.' To make a peace
with Russia under the thumb of Germany would be to
leave Prussianism with a natoin of nearly two hundred
millions of people for it to Germanize, and thus fortify
itself for another world struggle. Germany does not
seem to understand that this is a fight to a finish, and
that finish will' either be a world forever free from the
menace of Prussianism, or a world in which civilization
is doomed to revert to- another long dethronement. There
is no use ever thinking of peace until this is borne home
on the German people. They must form some kind of a
' government with which the allies can deal before, peace
talk can be indulged in. There can be no peace treaty
made with a gang of military dictators who in advance
warn the world that they will respect such a treaty so
long as it suits them to do so and no longer. Germany
must clean her own house before, making overtures of

HELPING. TO WIN.

ihe Hun, I have no use for hoarded mon. The hat I've

bought three years ago will serve to-bear me to and fro;

still. I root for Uncle Sam at bat, so come along and pass
the hat." It's hard to understand the skate who's' schem

uugnt to De asnamea to live, committees call at his abode,
and kindly asfc him to unload. He backs and fills and hums
and haws, and shoves some piffle through his jaws: "I
dug up fifty cents last May; I can't spare anything to
day." And he can face himself, that guy, who ought to
uhnt a hole and die. But in the long sad years to come
he'll find this world is out of plumb; he failed to whoop
for liberty, and while he lives on earth he'll be as Irme-,

Three Farmers Killed
By Lightning Stroke
The German crown prince has suddenly changed his
plans about retreating from the Marne and has appar
ently determined to fight it out where he is. He has prob
ably made a serious mistake. Repovts of the battle front
show he is in a dangerous position with his lines of com
munication under fire and in danger of being severed at
pny time. Once this is done his escape would be problem
atical at least. With the tremendous quantity of muni
tions required, and his communications cut off he would
soon find himself disarmed. Ihe result can be foreseen
If he sticks to his determination, there should be some
terrific fighting' within the next few days, for if he is to
free himself he must act quickly. Every day conditions
remain as they are adds to his danger. That he will make
a terrific effort either to break through on the southern
front, or to crowd back the Americans and French around
boissons and on the line south of that point, is certain
Jlost likely the latter attempt will be made, for it will be
necessary to force this front back to make his retreat
reasonably safe. .

Another thing that has caused a change in. the Ger
man plans on the western front is the danger to the house
of Hohenzollern at home if the much boasted drive that
was to bring peace and victory results in a terrible de
feat. The kaiser and his henchmen know they are liable
ito lose their jobs quickly should the German people wake

And, in a moment, we were chatting
