Why is Germany treated as an en- emy? Mr. Bonrasaa says It la not at all because Germany claims "divine or because she built up tho strongest nrmy ever seen, or because her autocracy Is .dangerous, but. "hc- rmise Germany put Into hor Industries an Impulse which threatened English supremacy arid American amblliona; because Germany reduced lo a mini- mum the conflict oC labor and capital by making labor conditions In Ger- many superior to those In Eng' land and Anserica; becauBe! tho .better social conditions prevailing in Germany cause envy and discontent onions the yrorkingincn of England and America, thus reducing the profits of capitalists.' i3. n Which of llic- iiallnns stands moat 'In Ihe way of the worhj'e peace?
