A LOAN THAT FAILED.
Germany's present eagerness for peace probably is.
based as much on financial as military disaster, though
the latter has been very serious. The ninth German loan
was as consoicuous a failure as the Fourth American
' loan was a success.In contrast with the $6,000,000,000 over-
subscribed by our people, the Germans are reported to
have subscribed less than $500,000,000, only about one
eighth of their last loan.. .
Their military failure has made them realize their
We are accustomed to thinking that we ended our
Civil War with an enormous debt; and so we did, judged
by ordinary standards. But while the debt of the victor
ious northern states in 1865 amounted to $114 per capita,
the debt of defeated Germany is now more than $450
per capita, and still rising fast.
The Germans have always been buoyed up with the
promise that their war debt would be wiped out by in
demnities imposed on their beaten foes. Now they have
suddenly -awakened to the fact that they are not going
to collect any indemnities- that on the contrary, they
may be obliged to raise more billions in forced payments
to the nations they have wronged.
So there are accumulating signs of financial panic to
add to other troubles of a disillusioned nation. Currency
is being hoarded. The government's credit is gone. Busi
ness is shot to pieces. There are runs on banks. Stock
values are tumbling. All of which adds to the effect of
the allied offensive, and fans the flames of German revo
lution. ' '
Now that election day is practically over it is proper
to review the situation and make a somewhat definite
The republican ticket will probably win in the state,
although Pierce has a fighting show for governor. He
might have been elected easily because there is such dis
satisfaction with the ' Withycombe administration and
Senator Pierce is an especially able man and popular j
wherever personally known. However, the Charaberlain
West democrats, with the Portland Journal as their or-1
gan, have thrown down the Pierce campaign in the inter
est of West for senator, and are evidently trading every
thing to that end which is in keeping with the Chamber
lain idea of poloitics. The senator himself arrived in
Oregon yesterday to personallyjake charge of the final
arrangements' to put his protege over if possible. This
situation naturally gives Pierce, a minority candidate, an
uphill task to win, or eventiake a creditable showing..
We believe the West campaign will also fail, but it is
difficult to forecast the strength of erratic politicians.
They are likely always to spring a surprise by the exceed
ingly heavy or exceedingly light vote they poll No par
ticular reason has been advanced why West should be
chosen over McNary, except that President Wilson should
be sustained. Those who advance this argument, how
ever, failing to show how West, as a follower of Senator
Chamberlain, would be likely to stand back of the presi
dent in his war measures as reliably as Senator McNary
has. That is the weak point in the West campaign. Logic
ally speaking it ought to fail. Still the strength of a man
like West is a particularly difficult thing to measure be
fore the votes are counted. Chamberlain is evidently
making it a test of his control in Oregon" politics.
Besides these two leading places there are no real
contests on the state ticketexcept supreme court justice,
wherein three republicans and one democrat are running
and the name of the candidate has to be written m by the
voter. It is anybody's race until the official returns are in.

THAT DEMOCRATIC REICHSTAG.-
We would have more faith in the German reichstag
as the legislative voice of the "New German democracy"
if it were not precisely the same reichstag, as the pliant
servant of Prussian militarism, which approved the in
famous treaties of Brest-Litovsk and Bucharest.
We cannot be sure that the reichstag has had -a
change of heart until it has had a change of membership,
chosen through fair, free, universal manhood suffrage
that is promised but not yet accomplished.
. Wilhelm ' has announced that he is willing to be a
"sort of hereditary president like Albert of Belgium, or
George of England." If he had the least sense of humor,
however, he would laugh himself to death over his own
nronosal and thus save the rest of the world a lot of
Germany, has the choice of surrendering or taking a
mighty sound whipping. We'll guess the kaiser and all
his crowd will show the yellow streak by surrendering.
Apparently those notes of President Wilson have
done more to knock the foundation from under the Ger
man military establishment than our doughboys, valor
ous as the latter are. European people seem to be going
the limit in the direction of what seems to them to be the
meaning of Wilsonian democracy.
Both sides are sure victors in the election today. It
will be a different story tomorrow, however.
If the kaiser doesn't hurry to surrender the allies may
save him the trouble by taking him prisoner.

It's Old Home Week in Germany, the boys are com
ing back! They're sore and tired and verminy, and high
they do not stack. No smiling maids are meeting them
wiht laurels for their brows; no glad voiced sires are
greeting them, and no rejoicing fraus. But," Blitzen!"
and "Geewhellikens!" the sad eyed people say, "You blam
ed slab-sided pelicans, why did you run away?" It's Old
Home Week in Germany, but every one looks sour; the
weary soldier Herman, he has made twelve miles an hour;
the guns behin dhim hammering, the allies on his trail',
triumphant f oemen clamoring, he scorched" o'er hill and

they love the Hun who pillages, but not the one who flies.
They love the Hun victorious, to him at any cost, : hey'd
welcome give uproarious the loser gets a frost. No
orators' are thundering a lot of phrases fine, no village
bands are blundering through "Watches on the Rhine".

There was a peculiar look upon Ken
yon Roberts' face when Ruth spoke
about Brian s goodness when sho was
obliged f0 bp away, which she fortu
nately did not notice. He had seen
Brian, unobserved by the latter, several
times with his arms full of parcels, hur
rying iu the direction of Washington
Square. And ag Clara had told him
that Mollie Kiug, whom Brian used to
know, intimately, lived down there, he
had put two and two together and
made four without any trouble. But he
was not a gossip, and had as yet not
mentioned it ewa to Clara, .

'Oh, dear! how stupid of met I had

tried to hide her tfisnppoiutmont. Brian
was doing something te increase his ef

the same time; sho must not discourage
him. It wasn't tho nionoy he would
savo that appealed to hor; it was the
idea that at last he was bestirring him

brightly, "I'll not start it until nearly

auything, no matter what it was.
Brian s optimistic attitude, without
the effort required to mako it come
truo, had worried Ruth. He was always
"going to get. there," but it was
"some day," not NOW.
Whilo they were so comfortable as
regarded money (owing to her salary),
Ruth cared little for what the finan
