GERMAN INDEMNITY IDEAS.
While Germany is protesting against the "exhor
litant" demands made by the Allies at Versailles, it is
veil to keep in mind what those same Germans proposed
ioing if they won, as they expected to do. One of the
most illuminating bits of evidence in that line is a mem
crandum written by Mathias Erzberger in 1914. Erz
l erger, it should be'i emembered, is one of the most prom
inent members of the present German government and
until lately expected to be at the head of the Peace Con
After explaining that Germany would be obliged to
:nnex Belgium and other neighbors with the French
tcast as far as Boulogne, the iron mines in French Lor
raine, various French, Belgian and British colonies in
Africa and a few other odds and ends here and there
f.bout the world, he came to the question of indemnity
the point of greatest inteifst at the present time.
"In fixing indemnities," he said- "the actual capacity
"f a state at the present moment should not be considered.
Besides a large immediate payment, annual installments
spread over a long period could be arranged. France
would be helped in making them by decreasing her bud
get of naval and military appropriations, the reductions to
le imposed in the peace treaty being such as would enable
iter to send substantial sums to Germany. Indemnities
should provide for the repayment of the full costs of the
var and the damages of war, notably in East Prussia, the
redemption "of all of Germany's public debt and the cre
ation of a vast fund for incapacitated soldiers".
The Allies seem to have found in this document the
P'rm of two or three ideas worked out in -the treaty which .
Germany received fur consideration today, though they
i.ave stopped far short of the Gorman program.
About the only legitimate use we can imagine for the

When I am sick, in punk condition, when I am lame
Mid blind and halt, I hire the city's best physician, then if
I die it's not my fault. The big physicians charge like
thunder, they charge each time they draw a breath, but
they give value for the plunder; they show us how to side
step death. When my old auto's in a panic, with many
doodads breaking loose, I hire the very k-st mechanic that
our small village can produce. He lias no conscience when
he charges, or so, o&sfish, I sometimes think; but he can
fix our boats and barges when they are strictly on the
blink. Some other gents might do it cheaper, but when
we count the final cost, we find expenses running deeper;
the tinhorn workman is a frost. The tinhorn workman
tauly botches all things entrusted to his care; he spoils
-ur pants and hats and watches, and bungles when he cuts
ur hair. When I decide to paint my stable, I'd hire a
Titian at his best, some grand old master, amply able to
luake all rivals seem a jest. I patronize the ablest baker
in this country hamlet dwells, and when I die my under
taker must be the on? who's wearing bells.
