But, most of all, men have been ap- palled by tho extent and the com- pleteness of her preparations for war. History has no precedent .for It, nor any such tale of millions of people under a r.ule that directed their every energy in the planned way to make them more.efficient for butchery.

There are Germans within the em- pire who condemn the imperial pur- poses, who well known the nature of the raging fever that besets Germany. Some of them apeak out, they will not be silenced, but when the organ of the Social Democrats with daring frankness gave a name to the disease the paper was suppressed. Of the "terrible crisis" in German affairs, Vorwaerts said the other day: .It shows us that the German people is stricken with a ma'iady which 'in the end may prove fatal; and this malady Is jingo- ism. Thus one names a diseased nationalism, which sees neither virtue nor courage in any nation but its own, and which has only insults and suspicion for others. The Kaiser's decree, may keep tho printed page from the sight of the people; the too audible voice it may still behind prison bars, hut all the Hohenzoliern power, cannot shut out the thoughts that are finding lodge- ment in the minds of the :people, it cannot long veil from their, eyes the great national disaster that awaits them.
