Itls 'n-or-thy-of notice that In -March last It mui called the "Kaiser's battle", for was it not a foregone conclusion that victory waa to porch upon the German �ta,ndard, and did not the All Highest announce to 'his Teutonic subjects that it was to be no "soft" peace that he would grant to his enemies? But when the mQCh heralded Tictory did not materialize for the Kaiser In March, AprW, May or June, it was no longer called the Kaiser's battle. Count Czern'in now says that he feels that "Emperor William did nbt want the war,.but did not know how to get out of It'^ In the lace of the following facts, this Austrian Foreign Minister has the effrontry to utter a sentence of this character and which is plainly and conclusively proved to be false. Mr. Gerard, the late American am OF Cei INTEREST Kaiaer made use of the following words publicly and that they were published -precisely as they were ut tered by His, Imperial .Majesty: "My life has been influenced by tlve men, Alexander the Great, Frederick the Great, Theodoric the Second, Julius Caesar and Napolpon. All these men irill be home? That aU depends on : ^ ^ . . Li /, , J, , .

' i'' i' The many Iriends; Mra. ffbivard Murray, who was r^ni|Te^t^iC6Ve^an cn Monday last, where" a'/Bia^""-''^'-'' 'and they failed. I have dreamed a dream of German world conquest and I shall succeed/' Furthermore, we are told on the indisputable authority' of Count Czer-nin'6 compatriot and diplomatic contemporary Count Karolyi that when the swaggering bombastic and insulting Austrian ultimatum was sent to Serbia, Emperor William expressed 'hiniaell in the following characteristic style: "I wUl show the world I am no puppet I will make the whole universe tremble with 'terror." O; dear, yes! Emperor ~7(CiIUam of Germany wanted peace, and Emperor Charles of Aurtrla wanted peace, when they had seen the handwriting on the Wall, which printed inevitably to the downfall and destructi-on of their dyijastles,' but when they were inebriated In 1914 with military power, when the prodigious military structure, which had taken 40 years, to erect, was in i�ie opinion ol the blns-tering bullying pptentatee who ruled the destinieB of.^e'German and Atis-tro-Hungarian Empires had! atta'ned the pinnacle..^ ol macWne-llke perfection, then notwithataadittg all th talk of the Count Czemln.blass of apolo-gistB, the evidence says distinctly and clearly that tiiey wMtted war and nothing but war. 5 Count Czemln furSier says that the Kaiser obnld ilot bring his ^nd to relinquishing the German hold of Aj-sace-Ldmiine, as the German people would'hot 1^6 able to reconcile a Qer-maii Tictory with the loss of rich and valuable territory. That only shows 4uid nefarious intrigues are to be j^own to lie world, intrigues which i^ere fundamentally the origin and iqause of this world war, then the jollity ones commence to excuse and �xoneiate.themselves, and lay the re-n�on�ibUity of tbieir violation ol the ilWB oJ humajilty upon the other fellow. In Count Czemln's discussion 1^1 the matter in question, he puts the I i^teme on Ludendorff, England and * Vnnee,' for the continuance of the i struggle. So far as Ludendorff Is I  ^ncemed, we are fully cognizant of i !^ie fact that 'be and his military as-I IIDClateB were confident that the tre-I l^endouB concentration,of troops at a j certain point in France In March last I - n'nmbering about hall a million of the :t�ry pick ot the German army to ii^ich were opposed at that particular /^ot about one-fiixth of the nuniber of Jkitlsfa and French troopa, would have tjie eflect ol dividing the entente Icro-i|y and that Paris and the Ohainnel Bprts would inevitably,be taken, anid. ^e end of the wir and victory for tfia Oennan army follow as a conse-(^ence of the colossal'drive. Ludendorff, we were told, was prepared to acrilice 1,500,000 men to attain this f}g�ntic resnlt We know that Im-T^jpfldojrtl was ultimately foiled in his vast aepiratiODfi, by the genius of tjtfareh'al Foch, who decoyed the Ger-' [^^>irar lords to their fate. When he ready to strike the series of blows !^}i)p}i Ultimately settled the late of ^^-'y^iHl^, he made E&denjorll, Hin-: and the rest of the German genii look like the commonest \i^V^ti^B. So that when we are now Count Czemln that Lnden-IRA ' oppo4^ Jo'lpeace,^ doubt-. i�!pQrrect for it remained for ie,riand:bi8 staff to get the "Qf their;'lives when Foch bis ptfensive on" July 15 relinaiiifhed it nntil the it plain that the British and entente military Tpolicy jiad for its o6ject the itotftl destruction of-Prussian militarism and junicerlem and not the annihilation of t|ie German nation.' 'Whatever excnsef . this' Austrian Count may bring forward in extenuation of the dual reBponslbllity of Germany and Austria for the mui^er-ous' crime fiey committed In 1914, the whole world knows that their pre-tsntlPus dfesire lor peace during the last 12 months of the war was the outcome of panic and fear for their tottering thrones, and from no syihpa-thetlc oi;: compaselonate feeling towards human sacrifice. Truly these Czars, Bmperorp, Princes and Counts have proved themselves to be an incompetent bnnch of statesmen. Lying and deception were their principal stock in tnule. These .things In addition to their Idiotic political blundering, have plunged their nations into the abyse of ruin, desolation and un-happlnesB for, generations to oome.
