KAISER IS HELPLESS
Attack Oa Lnine Following
Killing Of German Offi
cials Proves This.
. . . By J. W. T. Hasan,
(Cnited Press War Expert.)
New York, Sept. 2. The designs of
the Hohenxollcrn militarists to make
uieir nomination or kiissiu tne basis of
tiermany future eeoiiomic etpansiou,
have been heavily discredited by the
attempted assassination .of Iienirie.
Kussia has again proven herself un
alterably hostile to all forms of h
the kaiser or the Bolsheviki, The ter
rorists, who killed the German ambas
sador to Russia, aud the German dicta
tor iu the Ukraine, have proven by
their third victim, that Germany has
been unable to take repressive meas
ures following the deaths of Ambas
sador von Mirbaeh and Field Marshal
von Eiehorn. The .helplessness of the
llohenzollerns when faced by the
Nihilist oranixations is now demon
strated. The kaiser cannot carry out
his anti-democratic policies in Hussia
against his own s.df-coufessed failure
to protect his reactionary agents. The
.shots fired at lienine will cause echoes
of dismay to ring iu Berlin. The
Ifohettzollerns not only are helpless t-i
safeguard German representatives in
KHi, but they cannot rely on the
help of Kussian tools for their unholy
The attempt against Leiiine ia due
to the fait that through him German
influences have tried to make their
way into the governing control, of Kiwi
sia. The policy of assassination re
cently put into operation by the terror
ists shows every evidence of being
exclusively anti-German in its purposes.
German victims have hitherto been
the only ones selected, and the terror
ists proclaim that they will not tolerate
foreign interference with the Moscow
and I'kraine governments.
The selection of Leuine as the third
victim can have no other meaning than
to warn all whom it may concern that
Hussion leaders who connive at German
oppression may be classed with the
German autocrats themselves.
A few more such lessons as these
