He says ; no strike or revolution in Prussia can [be taken seriously until it has won its spurs. "Tlie mind and moral will of the whole population has been made too effectively mechanical by a century of j military drill. It must be remembered too that strike funds are non-nxistent in l*mnain for. /ibbougb 'ho workmen have been earning hhs'n wages, they have virtually been compelled to subscribe nearly all to the war loans and get no interns*." � Opinion In London � X own paper opinion in ly.mdon regarding the strike is divergent. Some papers incline to the belief that the strike really denotes the growing I strength of a democratic spirit in Uer-; many, while others favor the deduction thai the whole tiling to a great: �extent lias beou engineered by the gov- � eminent for its own, purpose,. The ; Daily News, while accepting with reserve the more extravagant accounts, thinks it. i- obvious rhat there has i been spread into Germany and ,Vn.--' trla some luearure of the spirit, which I detjiroafd I'm- llussian empire. it !adds: : "Tile tide for which President Wil-! son has ^o long ami so patiemly cut � tl-.e channel i'oeginning to flow at.

( Merely a Hun Game On Hie other hand, the Daily Mail, j argues that the revolution is talked ! about. It says that it is virtually true jtiiat no strike can happen there m war time unless the government, sees profit in it. The Daily Mail regards i tiie movement as really an appeal to j IMtisli and French workmen in strike | nnil says thai if the appe.fl succeedI ; the Germans would immediately suppress their own strikers and renew the war with increased energy. t  I Trenches Falling io Pieces' I Regiments Disband'-Army Horses Sold tu (heir late editions the morning La:;;!
