The Great War Part 187, March 16th 1918

THE ENEMY PRESS What the Hun is Saying About Us British Lab o u rand theW ar—The Russian f ublication of the secret treaties of the Entente 'owers made into a certainty tho suspicion that the British Government according to its old habit, is pursuing only annexationist and Imperialist aims behind a curtain of fine altruistic phrases. Hence the workmen have begun to be convinced that only International Labour can give the world the peace which it needs and this by Labour energetically refusing to lend its aid for the con­tinuation of the war for Imperialist aims. The development of the views of the British Labour Party is very interesting. Munchner Neueste Nachrichten. British Naval Bases .—While the Central Powers are invited by the champions of true democracy to make all kinds of cessions of territory the soil of the British World-Empire is of course sacred however obvious may bethe robberies by which it has been accumulated. An international lawyer like Wilson should prove to us Englands moral right to places like Malta and Gibraltar which are in the territory of European Great Powers Wilson knows as well as we do that they are the citadels of the systematic British naval tyranny. The peoples have a great interest in the exposure of the English policeman for what he is—that is to assay a self-seeking burglar who thanks to his naval bases is able at anytime to paralyse their trade. Cologne. Ornette. “BOOTY!” From Notable Books of the War The Pots dam W e r wolf .—I knew that tho predatory Potsdam gang had chosen and forced the war in order to realise their robber-dream of Pan-Germanism. I knew that they were pushing it with unheard-of atrocity in Belgium and Northern Franco in Poland and Serbia and Armenia. I knew that they had challenged and attacked the whole world of peace-loving nations. I knew that America belonged to that imperilled world. I knew that there could be no secure labour and no quiet sleep in any land so long as the Potsdam Werwolf was at large. The truth about the choosing beginning, and forcing of this abominable war has never been told by official Germandom. Henry VanDyke in“Fighting for Peace.” A pore l a nev. Air ship .—The hitherto untried weapon of war furnished by aircraft brought about a number of new phenomena. The dirigible airship, valuable as it has proved for reconnoitring at sea, has given way before the aeroplane inland warfare. The brilliant invention of Count Zeppelin provided a weapon which especially at the beginning of the war was of great moral importance and was also of indisputable value because with the Zeppelin, we got over to England but in this sphere also the large fighting aeroplane has taken its place. The importance of aeroplanes has considerably increased since it has become possible for them to keep at heights of far more than 3000 metres thereby reducing the danger from gunfire directed against them from the ground. Freytag in “Deductions from the World War." Chivalry or theSe a .—Tho merchant seaman must sail at the hazard of a deadly peril. ...He must navigate unlighted channels amid unlighted ships. He must steer new courses and learn tho art of war. He never failed nor flinched. And you shall mark in these chronicles the merchant seaman beginning unarmed and helpless stumbling over mines attacked by raiding cruisers torpedoed or shot to pieces by submarines sent adrift togo mad or drown in open boats still sturdily going about his business. ...He is the same merchant seaman who but three years since was the drudge of commerce and who now in his own right is entered of the chivalry of tho sea.L. Cope Cornford in “Merchant Seaman in War.'P ash a and Dog .—The Boche is an animal to \Aom humiliation is a happiness. As lie is pleased to. .bow down before a superior and lick his boots and grovel so he finds joy in brutality disdain, arrogance and haughtiness towards his inferiors. He alternately serves out or swallows disdain, blows vexation injuries and insults. In every Boche there is at once a pasha and a dog. The hierarchy must be recognised in civil as in military life. Everyone finds above him a superior whom he flatters and fawns on whose hand he licks even though it strike him and finds below him a scape­goat patient and servile to tho same degree. M. Jean Martin's “Captivity and Escape." Asia tic ruT key .—Asiatic Turkey is the seat of power to control the Mohammedan world. What­ever maybe in the minds of the statesmen of Europe it may safely be said that all other questions involved in the Great War are minor compared to the future of Asiatic Turkey.S. S. McClure in “Obstacles to Peace." The Future wit hAm eric a .—“When the war is over we shall probably receive an addition of many million new young men from Europe. America is the land of safety. America is rich, and can pay good wages. We have tho largest white educated population and in a few score years we shall be double of any of your proud Empire^ of the Old World. We shall be inventing three new bits of machinery to your one discovering three new things in science to your one. We shall have gone completely ahead in the building of garden cities in the eradication of slums in the eugenically established health of the individual. In fact America will be first and all the rest nowhere. All Europe will be looking westward over the Atlantic as we achieve the Victories of Peace.” Stephen Graham's “Priest of the Ideal."
