Tn tho invasion of Belgium ' and France no attontton wag paid by Ger- \ many to these provisions of international law, although she had herself subscribed to them. Itelgians have been employed in labors cont'dbnlinn to the fJorhian arms, ciiui'clies. libraries, museums, have been specially marked out for destruction. Hospitals have been chosen as targets for bombardment. Hospital ship; have been singlei] out for attack at sea. Not only hnr- pillage been practised, bit' what th" robbers could not carry away they have in mere wantonness des iroyecl. Not only have iindefenthtd c:lti'S and villages been bombarded, hut letreaUng troops have habitually burned tint villages through which they pasted, or stored Ihein with mines timed to destroy He building* as soon as the Germans hud escaped from the perils. Men, women and children have beep seized and expatriated, and hundred.* of them shot without, trial. And on the soa the long-required law that no merchant, vessel can be sunk without provision for the safely of the crew and passengers has been disregarded. What docs impartial justice demand-�-"jus-tiro that play no favorites and knows no standard but the equal rights of the several peoples concerned?" Certainly it does not demand that the King of the I!ejgjans and the Prime Minister of l-'rance sit down �t the same council table with the men who have devastated their territory r.nd murdered their fellow-citizens. It does not mean that Belgium, France, and Italy .��hall act. inward Gennanv as though nothing had occurred to prevent a partnership with tier for the purpose oi establishing international justice and maintaining in'-ernntional ponce. Any League of Nations in Willi h the Allies should invite f'.er-many to share in It-sassins. It in because the. city is not sale while he is in large, utid bec.'iti-.'-his execution will serve as an effect, ual warning to the murderous gang which he Iirr jirotected. To destroy Hamburg or Cologne would not make Kronen cities secure. H would lej more apt. to incite, private revenge and involve French cities lit now pec-Us It would he to adopt the German method without the poor excuse furnished hy the fury Of battle. Kv'm a threat beforehand to destroy city for city, which has beet] propound, would hu of (luestioiitible value. It is doubtful whether tho throat would have the effect to prevent the destruction Ivy the Germans of Kreneh cities; Mid doubtful whether the Allied soldiers would hi; found willing lo apply the torch to a city undofendeil by troops and occupied hy eltluc.ns who me innocent of (he crimen which the destruction of tho city is supposed lo tivengn. It la juat that Germany repau, as far an money can repair, the dnina�e she has inflicted upon Franco and Hel-giimi. Her obligation to furnish such reparation is explicitly recognised by tho Hague convention which sho has signed, and In the case of Helgluni by the statement made hy tho Gorman I'rlmo Minister to tho Kolchstag at the opening of tho war. It Is just thai she give to tho Alllej. from her portx a ship for every one which Hhe has lawlessly sunk at tfoa. It Is jiiRt that tho cost of this reparation ho made to full aa far as possible on the individuals in Germany who are responsible for tho conduct, of tho war vathor than on tho common people, who havo been coerced or deluded into giving It their support. Ttaarofore it would ho just to take possession of Germany aa Germany took poBnoiislon of Uelglmn, and confiscate the property of tho war lords Including tho Kaiaor, confiscate the Krttpp works and all other munition factorioa, confiscate tho landed property of the .lunKor c.Iush without wlioao Riipport the wa/ would not and could not havo been'maintained, and use lhn procoeds of theso confiscations In paying tho damages due to llolglum and Franco. It would bo just to split tho groat estates into Hiuall holdings and to sell them to peasants on sotno adequate socurity that thoy would occupy and cultivate thorn, This would be just because such a peasant occupation of tho land would bo the best practical guarantee against militarism In the future. It would he just, to dismantle the forts, rodui'o tho fluet, and do whnti ever Is uucossary in tho disorganization or reorganization of tho army to glvo reasonable assurance that It THEY SEEK TO FORM A SOCIALIST llr cnam tErtrr London. Nov. li.- (1.11 p.m.) - The soldiers' and workmen's council, according to a German wireless message picked up here, has decreed that public utilities employees, physicians and domestic servants arc exempted from the general strike. The German Independent Socialists have proposed Dr. Karl Licb-knecht. Huqo Haase and Hcrr Oarth as members of the government, a German wireless messacie announced. Reoarding the negotiations between both groups of Socialists, the leader of the Social-Democrats announces, the message addn, that both parties arc seeking a Socialist republic, but will ask the people and the constituent assembly to decide. would not and could not he again used in a war of coniiuest. It would he just to bring lo (rial and condign punishment, any who. in violation of the laws of war and of ihe explicit convention of The 1 lactic signed by Germany, have been guilty of the crime of mnriK.r. Our correspondent, in The Outlook of October Iti tho article "With Whom and for What. Are We at War?" emphasi/.es this principle and cites as an illustration th� case of the captain of the .submarine who sank the l.usitaniu. The principle is sound and th?. Illustration is apt. In short, it would be jusi. to put Germany in till1 hands of a receiver who would pay its jtist dcbls to France and ficlgium and in the hands of a guai-diiin who would provide proicctlon for tbe German people and their neighbors from the uiadii'.eii who have bankrupted their Fatherland and brought upon the civilized world this unparalleled tragedy. It. would be just to put mi army of occupation In Germany until these acts of justice were accomplished. And it would be just to restore to France the territories of Alsace and Lorraine, of which Germany robbed her in t.>7l ; and it would not ho, just to restore to Germany any of the colonies of which she has been deprived by this war unless the citizens in those colonies consented hy a free Hnd untriimmeled vote to again conic under German sovereignty.
