no news a jest it thin a fir 40s a Uig Iuli deeds not words will prove the reality of German reforms impudence reached its Climax when kaisers socialist tool Scheidemann gave out the statement cabled Here and recently published in the news which practically demanded that the allies Lay Down their arms on the Promise that the democratic forces of Germany after the War will clip the claws of Kaiser ism the Best reason Why the allies will do no such thing is himself and Cre Tures of his sort who have bulked so Large in what has passed for German democracy on his own showing Scheidemann is either a pol Troon or a both before the War he and his fellow jabber ers talked much of democracy and internationalism but they always ducked for cover when the militarists rattled their sabers after the War began they crawled on their hands and Knees to the foot of the throne to lick the kaisers boots they applauded the ruin of Belgium and practically every act of frightful less they echoed the boasts of German efficiency and Kultur in the Reich Stag they voted the Money to pay the assassins of Belgium and Northern France later on when the militaristic game had reached its losing stage and peace was Neces sary it was Scheidemann and his crowd of sleek Well fed counter parts of our own fat bergers and unctions were employed to spread the nets of the Stockholm conference and the Kindred peace traps ii fashioned in the workshops of Germany or her Neutral tools Holland Sweden or Denmark to the real socialists of Germany the Small remnant of real democracy remaining in the country Scheidemann and his clique Are Kaiser socialists and have been denounced As such to the entire world by Haase led Bour and Liebknecht if German democracy is to be achieved either during or after the War it will have to be achieved by other hands than the fatted paws of Scheidemann and his kind if Ger Man democracy depends on such people its cause is indeed desperate never before the War did their opposition to autocracy amount to More than Windy harangues in the Power less debating society called the Reich Stag after the War began it never amounted to More than a feeble squeak of protest at some particularly revolting phase of fright fullness and whenever the Kaiser called them to the task they obediently undertook the work of trying to get a German peace by Hood winking the Liberal forces of the Allied can anyone imagine German democracy led by such creatures As Scheidemann Over throwing Kaiser ism after a War which ends in a successful peace for the Kaiser no if the German people want peace they can get it by paying the Price which is the overthrow of autocracy but they must de liver the goods first their record requires payment in Advance for they never showed that they could Rule themselves before the War and by allowing themselves to be ruled by autocracy and led into War they have Cost the world millions of lives billions of prop erty and Heartbreak immeasurable they proved unfaithful to the world once cannot be trusted again until they prove by deeds not words that they mean to Rule themselves to Call an end to the War if Only the allies will fall into the trap of a German peace there Are undoubtedly mutterings among the German people there is undoubtedly unrest in the Germany army and these things Are heightened by the 1acl that the British have won ground from the germans in Flanders the French in France and the italians in Austria in such a state of affairs with the allies on the Western and italian fronts More than standing firm with America preparing to throw its great Power into the scale there was great need of something that would hearted the German Armand the German people therefore there ensued the Campaign which resulted in the taking of the Baltic port of Riga it was not really a fight it was a cake walk the russian army on that front has degenerated into a Mere cowardly mob it did not put no even the semblance of a Battle it gave up Riga without even taking the trouble to destroy guns and munitions and supplies hardly Ever in the history of War has an invading army had so easy a time the win Ning of Riga adds no laurels to the German arms but the exigencies of the situation at Home require that this Riga business be inflated the German people must be lifted out of their depression they must be made to forget the failures in Flanders at Verdun and on the Iso Iuo they must be Given some rhetorical Pap the result is that by acceleration on the Pait of the officials Berlin is All be flagged in Honor of the Riga Victory the Bells Are rung they have not so been rung since the mighty Hindenburg was made Generalissimo and the Kaiser Falls in line replying to a congratulatory message from the merchants of Lubeck William Hohenzollern in his usual pompous style says the important Success of our heroic troops again proves to the world and our enemies that Germany army and people altho always ready to terminate the

such should be the Case the unconscious if for instance one were in a Raj Road Accident and were suddenly knocked unconscious by the fore of a blow on ones head and after Ward consciousness were recovered there is always this bewilder Mei even Here when we come Back t the material world and Are still possessed of our Ordinary bodies sense organs and faculties it is on Honable to suppose therefore tha some such Shock As that describe should take place when the Spir wakes up and finds itself Othor world entirely with another body and with so great a different in environment and feeling

look into this free speech proposition what is free speech anyway to hear t lot of the pacifist and Proucy mans youd think free speech meant the right to say anything you please but it Doest and it never did any More than Liberty of action Means the right of doing anything you please free speech Means simply that you May say what you please so Long As you dont inter Fere with anybody else life Liberty and Pursuit of happiness by what you express so free speech Lias limits right from the Start if in the exercise of free speech you injure a fellow mans reputation legitimate business or righteous activities you can be sued for libel and made to pay for it if in the exercise of free speech you spread obscenity advocate murder or preach grand Lar Ceny the is democracy concerted idea of step in and put you in jail Why because humanity has decided that these things you advocate Are bad for Mankind and you by supporting them will injure the Public weal thus free speech in the very

that according to an obscure document known As the Constitution of the United states with Whicha Large number of our pacifist friends seem to be unfamiliar is treason among other limitations on free speech Lias always been the prohibition of its use in treasonable form All of which leads to the logical conclusion that democracy has a perfect right to suppress that sort of free speech which tends to injure the body politic and that pacifist pro German and i w w who shriek that the Republic is in danger because officers of the Law wont let them preach treason arc talking rot Washington strangled that sort of free speech Lincoln choked it off when the unions life was at stake and if the country is to do the work it has in hand and make this world a decent place to live in free of the menace of Prussia ism and murder the sooner these protagonists of sedition and disloyalty these Blind apostles of Craven pacifism Are muzzled and silenced the better for the themselves kor if the
