THE PROGRESS OK THE WAR  Local fighting only has occurred on the western trout within the past two days, all of which ha.-; been favorable to the British. Tlie Germans, although their artillery has been'active at one or two points, have assayed no new offensive. That conditions in Austria are on the verge of a serious revolt is no longer denied. The only thing that will savo the country from a revolution Is a German victory on the western front, and this of course, is now almost past the Impossible. THE ADMISSION OF GERMAN GUILT. Th'j Gcrniiiu .government may put th(i:r former ambassador to Great Hrilain. Prince Lichnowsky, on trial for liaving testified with regard to Germany's guilt in starting the war. Hill before the world It is the mllitar-is: rulers of Germany who are In tli� dock, and'- Prince Lichuowskj' Is tlie greatest witness of German guilt, glT-Ing conclusive evidence from 'their own side. % .Nothing that the German . gorem-ment may do can discredit their own ambassador's testimony with regard to Uje origin of the war. As Max Harden said in a recent issue of the "Zu-kunft":' It is unnecessary for a man like Prince Lichnowsky, wealthy, and holding such a high social and political position, to provs that he loves Jils'countrywhlclvta the aoarae pt.oll �his power and glory. Prince Lichnowsky did not Intend that bis memorandum should be published. He wrote it as a private family document, to put his part onrecord In history, and to give the truth' about' the precipitation of the war to prl-' vate- friends. The revelation Is due to the action of a member of the German general staff, who, shocked by the contents, made copies of the memorandum. In this way it reached the public. Pridce lilchnowsky tells bow ha labored while ambassador in London to bring about an understanding between Germany and Great Britain. Sir Edward Grey, the British minister of foreign affairs, also -worked laboi^ lously to find an accommodation with Germany. Prince Llohnowsky {stlHet that Sir Edward's policy was not to Isolate Germany, 'but to make us partners in a working concern." Sir Edward Grey was the pUlar of the Entente, but he did not conceive ot the Entente aa excluslre. It iras his means of bringing about the Society of Nations which he saw as the only altematlre to world war and world military caste, the real rulers of Germany. It has been part of tho onoray propaganda since the beginning of thu ! war to throw tho blame on Sir Ed-' ward Groy. But Prince Lichnowsky eulogizes him and flatly denies tho German assertions. He says of Sir Edward In the memoranduin: Lies and intrigues were foioign to his nature. This is the man who was called "thR liar Grey and 'tho originator of the world-war," "When Prince IJchnowsky realized the treacherous Intention ot Germany, he Is reported to have said 'Berlin has gone mad." He worked desperately to stem the rising tide. The urgent warnings he sent to tho Gorman government were ignored. Ho denouncwl the German course as a "dangerous and adventurous project." The German minister von .Tagow replied that Russia was not ready, and after a fuss would yield. Prince Lichnowsky says of Uits critical time of negotiation between Austria and Serbia: I urgently recommended Grey's proposal. In vain. ... A hint to Berch-told would have led to the acceptance ot the Serbian Xoto. But this hint was not given. We pressed for war. , . . After our refusal Sir Edward asked us to come forward with a proposal of our own. We Insisted upon war. . . The impression became over stronger that we desired war in "all clrcjum-stances. ... It has been said that -when the storm cloud burst, and tho Prussian miUtArists were to be in the saddle, thedr blood-lust unloosened upon the world. Prince Lichnowsky contemplated suicide. He was seen in tears. In his memorandum, he says: I ha4to support in Ivondon a policy whiclk" knew to be fallacious. I was paid �U for It, for it was a sin against the Holy Ghost. Prince Lichnowsky's memorandum Is pl^nly not neutral on the moral issue of the war. He definitely affirms that German perfidity brought about the wrecking of peace endeav-ers, and he states the indictment of Germany as follows: (1) We encouraged B; few years Ihey will again have to take up arms, and again see their, provinces over-run and their towns and villages destroyed?' Were those people not right who declared that It was the spirit ot Treltechka' and Bemhardl which dominated ttia German people-the spirit which, glorifies war as an aim Id lt�ell and does not abhor it as an evil? >Vere, those people not right who saw that among us It is still the feudal kntfhts and Jtinkers and the caste oC wiarrlors who rule and who fix our ideals and.olir values-not the civilian gentlemM?. ... ; A�;Uia;Ottawa cltiaen observes: ftlhc^ Ulchnowalcy's evidence leaves so tobphpie for the secret allies and dih^wi of Prussian autocracy to Vade the moral issue of the war PICKED UP' PASSING T�g gwy MMjy ftiderewskt has stoppad vl>TlnB until Poland la freed from Hun rule.
