He says a the Kaiser is obsessed by the thought that he is responsible the War a thought which poisons his whole existence. He feels menaced by three enemies it Home without counting those abroad. First is the Crown Prince the real author of the War. Second is the Junker Ger Manisty you cannot imagine the soldering hatred of the emperor those whom he believes to he maniacs who Are driving him into an event. Third Are the people not the socialist party hut the people who Are starving and who he feels Are growing in number and rising Little by Little against those who organized the War. A the other Day at the meeting of the parliamentary presidents and tile ministers of the several sovereigns at which the submarine War decided on the struggle Between the Kaiser a party and that of von Tirpitz was most hitter. The majority against the emperor was so great however that he was obliged to submit and pretend to be convinced. In particular he was personally opposed to a break with president Wilson hut was forced to or. S. P. Shaw of Sioux Falls state Secretary of the Baptist state convention was in the City yesterday on Church business. Washington d. C., mar. 26.�?germany�?Ts a Clear violations of the treaties of 1799 and 1828 and her a disregard of the canons of International Courtesy were assigned by the United states As reasons refusal to reaffirm or extend these agreements. The note of refusal to Germany transmitted through or. Paul Ritter the Swiss minister was made Public today by the state department and discloses that this government a is seriously considering whether Germany a conduct has not in effect abrogated these treaties. The note says in part a in View of the Clear violation by the German authorities of the Plain terms of the treaties in question concluded on the Mutual understanding that the obligations thereunder would be faithfully kept in View further of the disregard of the canons of International Courtesy and the comity of nations in the treatment of innocent american citizens in Germany the government of the United states cannot perceive any advantage which would flow from further engagements even though they were merely declaratory of International Law entered into with the Imperial German government in regard to the meaning of any of the articles of these treaties or As supplementary to them. In these circumstances therefore the government of the United states declines to enter into the special protocol proposed by the Imperial government. A this government is seriously considering a continues the note a whether or not the treaty of 1828 and the revised articles of the treaties of 1785 and 1799 have not been in effect abrogated by the German governments flagrant violations of their provisions it would be manifestly unjust and inequitable to require one party to an agreement to observe its stipulations and permit the other party to disregard them. It would appear that the mutuality of the undertaking has been destroyed by the conduct of the German the american note signed by Secretary Lansing follows a i beg to acknowledge receipt of the note of february to presenting proposals of the German government an interpretive and supplementary agreement As to article 23 of the treaty of 1799. After due consideration i have to inform you that the government of the United states is not disposed to look with favor upon the proposed agreement to alter or supplement the meaning of article 23 of this treaty. This position of the government of the United states which might under other conditions be different is due to the repeated violations by Germany of the treaty of 1828 and the articles of the treaties of 1785 and 1799 revised by the treaty of 1828. It is not necessary to narrate in detail these violations the attention of the German government has been called to the circumstances of each instance of violation but i May Here refer to certain of them briefly and in general Duicie take Over reuer work a me Rica n Relief to r k e is and Brand Whitlock Are formally withdrawn. Washington d. C., mar. 24.�?american Relief workers in Belgium and american minister Brand Whitlock have been formally withdrawn from Belgium official announcement was made at the state department this morning. The american Relief commission will be replaced As fast As possible with members of a joint Neutral commission largely under the supervision of dutch military officials. Brand Whitlock will go to Havre France resuming his duties As minister at the temporary belgian capital. Secretary of state Lansing at the direction of president Wilson has sent a note to the Netherlands accepting its offer to take Over the work of the commission. The action of the president in ordering the americans out was based on the belief that nothing would be gained in keeping americans longer in the territory occupied by German troops in Belgium and France. It is desired humanitarian reasons to continue the work and the government of the Netherlands was asked to communicate with the commission s Rotterdam office to take Over the work and determine How Many dutch were needed. Arrangements the return to the United states of Many of the americans now Are being made by the state department. Although removed from tractor it likes wet ground having a Caterpillar or crawl drive the same As that adopted by the English army their heavy guns. No other Light tractor has this drive. The interest of every person on the Street was attracted saturday by the Bates steel mule tractor driven through town attached to a Deere spreader demonstration purposes. The tractor is Sale by f. R. Brum Well of this City. The bares steel mule is a 6,000 Pound tractor with new and exceptionally desirable features South Dakota Farmers especially Spring blowing. It w la operate with the Best results to be desired on a three or four Bottom Deere engine plow or any other plow that matter and in tile most powerful plow tractor in the world in its class. With a draw bar pull on its blowing Speed of Over 3,200 pounds it gives a Reserve Power to draw on which will pull its plows through almost any kind of soil at a Good Speed. When this Power is compared to the 1,800 to 2,300 pounds that three plow tractors usually have at their blowing Speed it can readily be appreciated Iby comparison that the Bates steel mule not Only is the most powerful three plow tractor in the world but is so with a Large margin to spare. And still More because of its transmitting its Power through the ground to its draw bar by Means of a a a Crawler instead of a wheel this big Power is available in the Spring when the soil is Mellow and where under the same conditions the pull of a wheel tractor might drop to less than 500 pounds. The Crawler together with its compound Lecer hitch makes the Bates steel mule just As powerful a Puller in the Spring when the ground is Mellow and soft As in the fall when the footing is dry and hard. The a a Crawler consists of an endless Chain apron of Metal boards each link of which is a single piece of Metal connected to the next adjoining piece by Means of a connecting pin of Large bearing surface. The material of the apron is Vanadium steel a special Alloy steel which is practically indestructible. The apron is driven with a manganese steel gear located in the rear of the a a Crawler which gear is driven in turn by a Crucible steel sprocket. The Center part of the apron is supported by two flanged idler wheels located so As to run. On the outside of the apron and at the same time prevent the apron from slipping sideways Ltd the gear wheel when the tractor is going sideways on a slight incline. The front wheel of the Crawler is simply an idler which runs inside of the apron on the connecting pins. In operation the Broad surface on the ground acts to the Bates steel mule As Snow shoes act to a Man in deep Snow. It distributes the weight of the machine Over so Large a surface and therefore there Are so Many Square inches helping to support the weight that each one does not have very much to do and therefore the Earth does not become packed. The Bates. Steel mules ground pressure is lighter than a Man a it is so Light that a horse would have to have boards at least 10�?�xl2�?� clamped to each of its four feet to enable it to tread As lightly on the ground. Of you will measure up the number of Square inches a Man has on the Bottom of one of his shoes and will Divide the weight of that Man by the number of Square inches you will find you have a weight per Square Inch about to per cent heavier than the Bates steel mule is on the ground. The reason the a a Crawler is the Only Type of drive wheel Ever invented that can be used on soft ground and not injure the seed bed is because it does not pack it. Ifs like laying a big Broad platform on the ground and putting the weight on the platform instead of on the ground itself. A wheel concentrates All tile weight on one narrow strip and the degree of packing is that amount directly under the wheel Center whereas with the Crawler a Long Broad Belt is spread out Flat and the degree of packing is not concentrated at any one Point and therefore May be Only one tenth that of a wheel. The Bates steel mules can be hitched to any implement you have on your farm without any expensive special attachments. On implements which have Long tongues like wagons spreaders Grain drills etc., it is Only necessary to put in a Short stub Tongue with a strap Iron Loop around the end of the Tongue. The Loop fastens around the vertical draw bar of the tractor. On double discs plows drags etc., Chain hitches Are very desirable the hitch being made very close to the tractor on the horizontal draw bar. With a Binder the front trucks of the Binder Are removed and with a couple of pieces of strap Iron the stub Tongue is hitched to the vertical tractor draw bar which May be offset to one Side this purpose. On a two Row cultivator a wooden Cross bar with a clevis in the Middle is bolted to two stub tongues on the cultivator. This Cross bar is attached with the clevis to the vertical draw bar in the Center. Other implements Are attached in a similar manner. On every implement Only one Man is needed with the Bates steel mule. The operator sits on the implement and drives the machine just the same As horses Only ifs a great Deal easier. Take harvesting instance you Only have to steer the mule which you can do with one hand and All the time he is pulling you like four fresh horses All Day Long. The Corners Are As Square As with horses and you get double the acreage Cut in a Day. With every implement during every season its just the same Way Only one Man runs the entire outfit and he gets just about double the acreage done per Day that he could get with horses. In order to make this tractor an absolutely one Man machine the control wheels Are so arranged that they can be operated from the implement seat itself. The Small wheel at the end of the column is used shifting the transmission gears a slight twist changing the tractors Speed to suit the kind of work being done. The Middle wheel is used the steering gear which is of the irreversible worm and nut Type. The steering arms Are so designed that not Only can the tractor turn in a space less than that required five horses but the actual Effort involved in guiding this Marline is less than that used with any automobile irrespective of size. The largest wheel suits two purposes not Only does it disengage the Cluth but it locks it out by Means of a simple but extremely durable Ratchet mechanism. So simple and effective is the pull out arrangement that this tractor can be stopped More quickly than horses making the machine particularly Safe in Stony ground. When the Bates steel mule is attached to a Binder it is necessary to use the Extension control column which can be substituted the Shorter one by removing two bolts one on each end and slipping the new tubes into the squared recesses in the control wheels the entire change taking up less than fifteen minutes. For cultivating Corn or other crops it is necessary not Only the front wheels to travel Between rows but there must be sufficient clearance under the supporting members to avoid any possibility of breaking Down the stalks. The front wheels of the Bates steel mule can be adjusted separately or together from the proper Point repairs widely scattered repair stations. Quick service in any part of the country. To buy the 1916 Bates steel mule piece by piece totals $900.00, of o. B. Factory. Accessibility a every bearing Shaft nut set screw or Bolt on this tractor is extremely accessible and can be easily adjusted in a few minutes time. Boxes can be taken up adjustments made or repairs put in conveniently with the tools found on every farm. This Point together with the a a mule so durability constitute two big important features of this machine. The Bates steel mule Sale by .

Whitlock and three others who were restricted to Brussels. The commission realized that the British would not allow supplies to pass the blockade into Belgium and Felt that the germans were simply making an Effort to throw the onus of discontinuing the work on the British. The commission immediately replied by ordering All its men to leave Belgium. Evidently Germany had not expected such drastic action and the commission was asked to retract its order with the explanation that the original German order was made by a subordinate without authority.
