"We are not going to prdphesy results ill G_prmany, but tho systematic rtitJiless application of junker principles, both at home and abroad, seems as dangerous ti political expedient as over was tried. It is u brutal repudiation of all morality in, the region ot politics and tho erection of might, I'orco'und power Into supremo rule in government,  Clearly such a fabric, it It has any life at all, can endure only so long as tho Junkers can hold out tho prospect of a complete raili-lary triumph.
