MAKING GERMANY SAFE.
Today' if never before, Germany realizes how hopeless
ind vain was her cause during the war during all of the
years of preparation for that bloody struggle, in fact.
; Stiipped of all her colonial possessions, thrust back within
farrow borders defined by racial lines, weighted down
villi debts of reparation and restoration and practically
denied a voice in her own economic affairs for a century
to come, she is as a nation but newly born.
Seventy million people face, under the provisions of
the peace treaty, national submission to the dictates of
the Allies for generations hence. And all because of the
false ambitions of an autocratic few. But the peace
treaty is just, and lenient, when we consider the cost in
Mood, property and suffering incident to the war which
the treaty concludes.
Germany, in the vernacular, is "getting off easy."
And therein lies the danger of the whole treaty. The
hun spirit that ravaged Belgium, laid northern France in
vaste and waged war without conscience upon the high
eas is not yet subdued. That much we see in the attitude
GERMANY MUST GIVE UP GUILTY.
By Walt Mason
In Washington men pay their taxes on motor cars
r.nd battle axes, on stately homes with all their splendors,
on furniture and pink suspenders. The burden ever great
it waxes; there's no variety of taxes that doesn't hit the
i tricken city and make it look around for pity. And
Washington would dig the money and wear a smile serene
; nd sunny, arid show a host of cheerful faces, if she could
vote like other places. But Uncle Sam, he says, "No,
never! Let digging up lie your endeavor, and do not knock,
with busy mallet, became you cannot have the ballot. You
should be glad to dig the boodle, and whoop around for
Yankee Doodle, sound loyalty to me denoting, without a
I uphouse wish for voting." From Washington men go to
I'-attle, where mortars pop and sabres rattle; they go. from
t hanty and from manor, and wave aloft our spangled
I anner, and offer all they have for freedom, and when
th.'y go wo cry, "God speed 'em-" When they come back,
tiu'ir laurels toting, and ask to do their share of voting,
we say. "Gee whiz! Such talk is treason! Now, boys, ask
anything in reason, and you will not be rendered goatless
but Washington is always voteless!"
There is probably no phase of the peace treaty upon
which public attention is focused more than that involving
the trial and punishment of those German authorities re
sponsible for the violations pf the principles of civilized
A provision has been included in the treaty for the
surrender by Germany of all such personages, and their
trial and sentence at the hands of a court of five chosen
by the five great powers who have been formulating the
The officials who ordered land and sea atrocities,
who conducted war along forbidden lines, who perpetrat
ed cruelties and outrage on civil populations, or shelled
without warning merchant and passenger vessels and
crews which had taken to the boats all these under the
terms of the treaty must be surrendered to the Allies for
Germany has signally failed to administer such pun
ishment herself. Now if she desires peace she must sub
mit to having her enemies do it for her.
A greater test of the reality of German reform could
hardly be devised. If there is indeed a new Germany,
made over in conscience and heart, to standards of hu
manity and ready to repudiate the old regime, it will be
shown plainly by a prompt acceptance of this section of
the treaty. 7
But reformed or unreformed, the -surrendering of
her guilty to justice is one of the articles above the dotted
line to which Germany must subscribe, unless she pre
fers to face the consequences of internal disintegration
and outward warfare.
One of the youths who had a hand in the Washougal
bank robbery has confessed that it was a "fool notion."
He didn't have to get so intimate with the inside of the
penitentiary to find that out, however.
There are a lot of good Americans who would have
been willing to pay $.".0 a month to see Jess Willard fight
the kaiser, but they are going to think twice before part
ing with any amount to see him mix with Dempsey.
Somehow or other we don't place a great deal of re
liance in the opinion of the German newspapers that are
predicting rejection of several sections of the peace treaty.
