Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 191� THE LETIiBKIDGE DAmy YmiRALO THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S PAGE THREE By Wellingt on SEE THAT *THEY DON'T ESC^qpE; V(Hll.ei'pHONER)RTHE - iPoucE?r"--- JUSTICE TO GERMANY ? / � ? ? > > �> > > � fi. (New York Outlook). The ,fundamental vice ot Germany � �rhich lias brought this tragedy upon many to these provisions ot international law, although she had herself subscribed to them. Belgians have been employed in labors cont'-lbuting to the German arms. Churches, libraries, museums, have beeii specially marked out for destruction. tfoBpitalK have been cho.?Bi)'as targets for boni- ii^rwoHd ir the"facrthatisrreTo"g: ^^^..j^'^fi}^^!

Vecognize laws which the different States unite to en^ct, although she has united with tliem in the enactment. But there- are divine laws to which nations are subject. Might does not make the supreme right. The posses-ulon of power does not make the possessor free from his obligation to use his power in obedience to the been seized and expatriated, and hundreds of them shot without trial. And on the sea the long-required law that no merchant with Germany what they will.

What the King of 1" standard but .the equal rights of Nations will re.quire of us is that we deal justly with Germany. AVhat is justice? A classical definition is that furn-iuhed by: the Institutes of J ustinian nearly.,tw6 thousand years ago: "A constiant arid perpetual will to render 1^0 each one his own right." France wnU Belgium have a clear, right to reparation for the injury inflicted upon them'in violation of law and of Oermany'sf, express agreement, and to iprptectibri against, any repetition, of euch wrong^ in the future. It is just to requii-e Gerinany to''furnish this reparation find this protection. ' In Jiine, 1914, the Austrian Crown Pripge was assassinsited by" a Serbian. Austiria charged the 'Serbian Govern-!Higpt,'.6tf iciy s, with .being; accessory to th"e .crimia,.' Serbia, denied .tiiei cliarge and prdpbsecl to leave t}�e .question to judicial trial .by ihe Court at The Hague. If .tliere .ever was ^a case for Independent and '. impartial' investigation- by a judicial liody, it was this case, Anstria refused and Germany sanctioned, if she dW iiot inspire, the-I'efusal. Kiissia came to the defense of Serbia; Germany attacked not Rus-Hia but France. She had no -cause of complaint against France except her guess that France -would come to the aid of Knssia. In heii attack against liYance slie invaded Belgium, whose neutrality she^had herself guaranteed. In this invasion .she frankly acknow-Dedged herself at fault in the following-j declaration of her Prime Minister: Gentlemen,'w6. are confronted by a lieoesslty, and necessity knows no ' Oaw. Our troops have occupied Luxemburg, and have perhaps already entered Belgium. Gentlemen, this is contraiy'tp "interuatiortal, Maw.

It is juat that she give to the AllieB from her. ports a ship for every one whloh she has lawlessly sunk at gea. It is just that the coat of this reparation be made to fall as far as possible on the individuals in Germany who'are responsible for the conduct of (the war rather than on thp common people; who have been coerced of deluded, into giving.lt their support. Tharefore it would be; just to take! po8s�SBion of Geriiiany - as Germany took poBBesslon of Belgium, and confiscate the property of the war lords including the Kalaier, confiscate the Krupp works and all other munition factories, conflsoate the landed - property of the Junker .class without whose support the Ava/would not and could" not have been'maintained, and use 'the � proceeds of these confiaca-tions in paying the damages due to Belgium and France. ,It would be just to spilt the great estates into.small holdings and to sell them to peasants on - some adequate security, that they would occupy and oijltivate them. ..This would be just or buildings which are undefended is ' because such a peasant occupation of prohibited; (7) that no general pen-1 the land would be the best xiraotical alty, pecuniary or otherwise, shall be infllctod upon the population on ac-.count, or the aots of Individuals, for 1)which . they cannot be 'regarded as \ Jointly and'severally responplble.

It wolild be just to dismantle the forts, reduce the fleet, and do wbaU ever is necessary in the disorganization or reorganization of the army to give reasonable 'ass-urance that it| � FARMER INVESTS $100,000 "^Winnipeg.-Ferdinand La Fleche, Who cultivates 1,606'acres west of Winnipeg, called at the Victory Loan of-brought upon the civilized world, this i^ioe Saturday and-gave his cheque for unparalleled tragedy. It would be just to put an army .of occupation in Germany  until these acts of justice were accomplished. And it would be just to � restore, to Prance the territories of Alsace, arid Lorraine, of which Germany robbed her in 1871; and it would not be just to restore to Germany any of the colonies of which she has been depriv.ed by this war unless the citizens, in those colonies consented by a free and untrammeled'vote to again come under German sovereignty. We are not outlining a policy. We are not attempting -to. cover, in one brief article all the rights and duti,es of the European peoples. We are only attempting to point out what would be just in respect to Germany, li'rRnce and Belgium. We are not saying that the course Avhich we have' outlined would be expedient; we are simply saying tliat it would be just. It would meet the definition furnished by the president in his address ' of September 28: "A justice that plays Jio favorites and knows no standard but the equal rights of the several peoples concerned." It would accord with Justinian's definition of justice. "A constant and perpetual will to render to each one his own right," JIOO.OOO for "Victory bonds.
