States will have nothing to fear from this, element, should It he forced into the war. THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR � . - ' The first nine days of the'new German submarine warfare have shown that warfare to be decidedly ineffectual, according to the amount of tonnage sunk. In the face of these figures, the submarine menace has proved no less than a huge bluff on the part of Germany. Though a good many ships bearing valuable cargo have been sunk, and although one liner has been sent to the bottom with loss of life, the actual effectiveness of' the submarines so far as any. blockade of the allied powers is concerned, is practically nil. It is estimated that a total of 33,000 tons of shipping per day must be accounted for by the Germans, before any submarine warfare can become" effectual'as a 'blockade method, and the Hnns have fallen far abort of this;mark. The Germans are showing a disposition to make another effort to renew good relations with America, by offering some sort of compromise on the submarine warfare whereby neutral life will find greater protection. Communication to thia *ad, itj , is believed, will be opened wtth the : United States shortly: " In addition-to thej^r valuable gains made within the past "week opon tiie western front/'the British "have alsdjSife'Jrnesday last an "extra been successful In Mesopo,tamla;^',wbere they have captured important'l^e^ tions from the l^rkb, and are_B^�>wing .a disposition tp,cirry on thi olTeiisive to great extend.'

Today the millions in the republic to the south pay homage to the mer ' mory of Abrah'am Lincoln, the man �whose name stands oOt above all others in the-history of the United States. With the u. 3. on the verge of war with Germaiiy, the name of the (reat emancipator carries double sig-Bificance. For just as the. United States was plunged into a civil war to - establish the principle - that all men- i should be free,, sc is the States about to be plunged into a war that has been raging now for 30 months in order to estabUs}i,sin.other stepii|i^that-idemocracy for which Lincoln stood. .No hesitation* would there have been" on Lincoln's r part in the ease of the German enslavement of non^ombat-ant Belgians.. We cannot believe that Wilson will hesitate much longer In (taking active steps against the arch enemy of the world, Germany. . WILL GERMAN-AMERICANS DROP THE HYPHEN? Where will the German-Americans � * t)e in case the United States is forced Into war with Germany? It would appear that most of them would'drop the hyphen and stand before the enemy as Americans first. At least .those who are talking talk that way, and it is likely they represent the opinion of their fellows. It had been feared, as It was-evident in the early days of the war, that the German-Americans were so;:powerful that they �would be a source of internal trouble, probably revolution, if the United : States were to take sides against the .'land that bore them .or from whence came their forefathers. Germany has i travelled a long road since 1914, and ; ter conduct has gradually 'but surely � lost her the s>'mpathy of her, people In the United States.

So all this talk about "supermen" aiming to dispossess the government, the prime minister, and the leader of tlie opposition, is a ghost storj* to frighten children. The aim of it' is to discredit the movement for a reorganization that will give the country a non-partisaii 'war administration. The aim of ^it is to keep on with the partisan rule wp have, and the partisan quarreling _ that : goes with it, and'the dllaos of such .an election fight as the country never witnessed towards which the present order of things is rapidly tending. There are politicians on both sides working' separately and some of them together to bring on that strife, each group confident that its side will come out on top after the fray.
