Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THUHSOAW SEPTEMBF.I^ 12, 191S TliJi LITIIBRIDGK DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVE>! Made Every Effort to Stop War, Says Kaiser in Speech; Says God is With Germans . Amsterdnm, Sept. 12.-Speak-Inn at the Krupp munition works at Eseen, Emperor William declared that everyone In the remotes; corner of the fatherland knew ' that he had "laft no stone unturned to shorten the war as far as possible for the people and the entire civilized European world." Tlio omperor aafd R look two I" make pcaco, that one could not do It, uiilesK he eould overcome tlio other. Onrmany, ho doclured, �was confronted with her enemy's will to destroy her imd she niiiat place aualnst IhiH hor dotormination to preserve her existence. After mentioning his ofl'er.s of lioaco, tlic eraporor said tliut the Ger-inun leadefH lind made it plain lo everyone who wished lo understand, "that wo are at aj.) times ready to offer (ho liand of peace." "Who spoke at the very hcginning of war of starving out the Gorman women and clilldren? Who was it who introduced terrible hatred into I he war? It was the onsmy," said the Ki.iser. "Everyone of you 'n I he romolest corner of the futherlaii I kiiow.'i thar 1 left no stone unturned to ishortcn the vrar, as far as jiossilile for you a.od your people and for the entiro civilized European world, in Deceniher, I presented the encoiy public with a clear and unamblguoin offer of peace in the name of the Germ'iu empire and my allies. Jeers, contempt and mockery wore the answer. God Knows "He up above knows my sense of rosponsibilty. Repeatedly thirhiK the past months the responsible leador.5 of the imperial gnvcrnniRnt have nnam-hlRUously given to understand to everyone who wished to understand that We are at all times ;oady lo offer the hand of peace." The emperor declared the an.iwer of Germany's enemies was outspoken will to destruction and disintegration of Germany. "To make peare," he added, "two are needed. If either is unwilli)u;, Uic; other cannot presume that ho docs not wish to overthrow the other. We are confronted with the enemies' absolute will to destruction. And, against this absolute will to destruction wo must l>lace our' absolute will to preserve our existence. . Brave Army "Our bravo army out there lias shown you this will and died. Whether in aBsauIt' or withdrawn), or trencli fighting, the only thing that matters, is that the enemy should Iob.'? UH much us possible. This has occurred and continues to occur. "Our death defying navy also has proved that. I beat the enemy al ilio Skaggorack despite his great superiority. Our U-boats, like a consuming worm, gnaw at. -the enemy's vitals more than our enemies will .adniit. "Kven though, in the opinion of many of you, it is lasting too long. lOvery German man and every German woman must, in witnessing these incomparably heroic deeds of our army and our navy, be aware that we are fighting and struggling for exlBlcnce and that wo must make the utmost effort to efend ourselves victoriou.sly. not only through the work, but as regards the thoughts of our people. "Afany among j'oii have often asked themselves during this long war: 'How did such a thing.happen' Wh.v did we have to undergo such a tiling after 40 years of peace?' I think It is a (lucstlon well worthy of an nnswei' and which must be answered for tlic future-for our children and our grandchildren." "I have thought long on the matter and have come to the iollowing answer: / "In this world good clashes with the evil. That is how things have been ordered from on high-the yes and no. The no of the doubting mind against the yes of the creative mind; the no of the pc-isimi-st again.st the yes of the optimist; the yes of heaven against the no of hell. "You will acknowledge that I am right in describing tliis iwar as the product of a great negation. And do you ask what negation it is? It is the negation of the German people's right .to exist. It is the negation of all our kiiitur; a negation of our achievements; of all our work. "The German people were Industrious, methodical, assiduous, imaginative in all domains. It worked In body and soul. But there were people who did not wish to work, but to rest on their laurels. Those were our enemies. We got close to them through our profitable work and the development of our industry, science and arts; through our popular education i WiU Pulsate in Your Breast, When You Hear the Eloquent Words of Prison Li ooooo He Was a Slave of the Huns for Four Years.

Karl Kurce and his family at Diamond City, The Lennox Torrid Zone Steel Furnace Are so constructed as! to he the most powerful heatei's ever known.

Smoke "r gas is only fuel iu another form and can be consumed when jlierc is a blase of heated air admitted to the fire chamber above fire.
