In British Columbia we are, for some unseen  reason, proceeding more slowly.  The Vancouver Board of Trade has delivered  itself of the following oracular utterance:  "Resolved, that the council of the Vancouver  Board of Trade opposes a moratorium for British  Columbia <&t the present time, but favors-some  paction to secure a lenient treatment in certain  peases; that a committee of three be appointed to  [" recommend for consideration at the next meeting  of the board what action is desirable."  Sir Richard McBride, approached aa to the  proclamation of a partial moratorium for'British -  Columbia, whilst refusing to pledge the govern-'  ment to same, declares that some relief to the  debtor class in the province is a necessity,- and  that the government is carefully considering the  matter/and intends taking steps tbat will give  I that protection and warns aggressive creditors  ���������Hhat such action will be made retroactive, dating  from day of declaration of wfr. % \ .__ y>  . This is good aa far as it goes, but^ the meantime the situation grows daUY more unbearable.  \The shooting of Angelo Teti in a, broker's office on Wednesday of this week was undoubtedly  caused by fear of loss of property, justified or  unjustified, we do not presume to state. "But:  that many, very .many of our people tirafcp have  made many payments on property or that bave  mortgages falling due are facing ruin, owing,to  war monetary conditions is a fearful fact, and  requires immediate action on the part of our provincial authorities.  Mr. H. H. Stevens says:  "Since I sent a telegram to Sir Robert Borden on Tuesday night, urging tbat some steps be  immediately taken to cope with' the chaotic financial conditions which now obtain in this city,,  I bave been deluged with   messages   endorsing  my stand.  A large number of business blocks in  (this city have been built on mortgage loans, and  the foreclosure at this' time means that the owners will not possibly be able to renew their loans  or to mike other/ arrangements.  The mortgagors  are not only threatening to foreclose; but in many  cases have already /taken the preliminary steps  to that_end.__The_amounts run'in some instances _  to $150,000, and as high as $250,000.  . "Not only are our large business interests affected," he continued, "but hundreds of our citizens who have purchased their own homes by  dint of careful saving will lose all they have put  out if the proposed legislation is not made operative. Spine of our suburbanites bave been paying,  out- for six and seven years on their homes, and  have very nearly cleared up their indebtedness.  These people will feel the pinch'most, unless some  remedial measures are taken to prevent the wholesale foreclosures which are imminent."  Almost every business man who has spoken on  the subject has confessed to the need of some kind  of legal relief. Why higgle over names���������what  the province wants is definite and immediate relief���������callit what you like.

It bid hold of the ttistooracy and tlie German courts, and spread like  wild fire and in its subtleetfbrms among the Prussian people.  - To this was added In years ago the Dairwinian form,, of the old Egyptian philosophy,  which passing into Germany was transmuted intiaobrainof IDui Ifarta into modern state Socialism as the last and highest evolution of human gAmnmeni German. Ohristi-anity did not perish  without a struggle.

Tho idea that the assassination of tha Grand Di*e was more than ti^e were pretext used,  or that even the will of the Kaiser was tho dominant factor in bringing about this world embracing war is very wide of the mark.  ,  Those are tha hidden but real causes that have brought about this awful oataetropby.  A nearer, clearer and more immediate causa 1s the high protective tariff of which Germany has been one of the most aggressive advocates. A protective tariff works against the world's  best interest with a fourfold potency, .first, it wceasai^y increases the cost of Rving, and is perhaps the greatest single factor in this matter. Second, it tends to corrupt the civil service and the  traders of a country as nothing else does. Witness the Havemeyer sugar weighing scandals at Philadelphia, and the coal weighing scandal at San Francisco. Third, it prodhees an unnatural and  unwarranted activity in the interests protected that forces them to dump their surpluses on foreign  markets and tends always to the production of quantity instead of quality. The high protected  countries are the producers jb������ shoddy���������Germany and America,pre-ewueufly. ���������  And last of all and worst of all a high protective tariff emphasises Nationality in its  meanest and most selfish aspect, that of the lowest phase of modern business���������"let every man and  nation mind his own business and the devil take the.hindmoft."  It is tbe protective tariff that creates the most corrupt form of lobby in our haU*of legislature. It is protection that has raised our cost of living beyond all other causes. It is protection  that has, amongst other causes, increased the frequency of business panics in our midst, and it is  the German "ZoU-verein," with its piratical tariffs that has brought about, as one of the main  causes, the present war of aggression on Germany's part. (       ^  Wherever the British .free Trade flag floats, there all nations can trade on equal terms  with the Britisher himself. It is the Gospel of human brotherhood translated into the language of  commerce.  Protection on tbe other band is a trade war of selfish interests wbicb in Germany's case,  backed up by a pagan materialistic philosophy, has begotten her favorite hymn, "Deutsebland,  Peutschland ,reber alles," and she is now wading through rivers of blood to put this "credo" into  a material reality. It is "Germany over everything.'' Over heir pledged word affxed to treaties.  Over her family and racial and religious affiliations. Over mountains of human flesh and rivers of  human blood. Over tbe groans of mangled dyingand the scalding tears of bereaved mothers and  children. Over the prayers of saints and the curses of pagans. Over men's law and, for a time,  even over God's law, it is Germany over all."  There are those who tell us that this will be the last war. Not so, as long as human selfishness holds sway���������the Rider on the White Hone will go forth to war.

'The distinctive thing about the program is  the fact that representatives whoi are  in attendance will not be compelled  to bring credentials with them from  any appointive power. This is a clear  departure from the usual rule of congresses, conferences, conventions and  the like. The idea in departing thus  from the usual custom is to simplify  and democratize the Ninth sessions  so far as possible and to extract the  highest possible usefulness from  them.  The Rev. Dr. Alexander M. Brodie,  pastor of the First Presbyterian  church of Wichita, will deliver the invocation. The assemblage will be  called to order by W. I. Drummond,  of Muskogee^ Oklahoma, chairman of  the International Board of Governors.  Then there will be the introduction'  of Charles w! Southward, of Wichita)  chairman of the Kansas Board of Control, followed by 'the addresses of  welcome.  Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock in  the' consistory, there will be a session on demonstration work, with the  roll call of states.  Discussions or reports will be limited to five minutes. Responses on  the part of states of the West in- the  sub-humid region will be made by  representatives of agricultural colleges, , experiment stations, or those  familiar with the progress of agriculture anil of, dry farming in the sub-  humid regions. These reports will be  very interesting indeed.  Monday night at 8 o'clock the governors' session will be held, Governor  George H. Hodges, of Kansas, presiding. There will be addresses by perhaps half a dozen governors in attendance, including 'Governors Lee  Cruce, of Oklahoma, Elias M. Amnions, of Colorado, E. W.\ Major, of  Missouri, Joseph M. Carey, of Wyoming, O. B. Colquitt, of Texas,'and  one or two others, probably L. B.  Hanna, of South Dakota.  The session on Tuesday morning,  October 13, at 8 o'clock will be the  livestock session.  Adddresses will be(made by George  W. Rommel of the Bureau of Animal Industry, United States Department of Agriculture; F. B. Mumford,  Dean of the Missouri College of Agriculture; Dr. J. B. Rutherford, Agricultural and Livestock Commissioner,  Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  Calgary, Alberta, Canada; W. J. Coch-  el, Professor of Animal Husbandry,  Kansas Agricultural College; W. J.

Misplaced Patriotism  ���������* *��������� "s ���������  1 Two. blacks do not make a white. ��������� Because the  Qermans have forgotten���������to he- gentlemen in this  war���������is no reason why we should follow suit.  The British Empire is here to stay whatever  happens to Germany.. And even when we win we  do not propose to exterminates.th'e .Germans. All  we hope to do is to beat some sense into them and  make them better citizens of this world, so that  we can live peaceably together.  The Dominion jfnd Provincial Governments  have both publicly signified their policy as. to the  Qermans who are living in our midst, and the  German capital that is here at work developing  our resources. These aire to receive fair play as  long as they behave themselves. German capital  here is-to be protected by our laws and Germans  themselves1 are to enjoy honorable treatment providing they desire to live honorably in our midst  whilst the Empire is at war with the Fatherland.  This is in accord with Britain's traditional  policy through the centuries.  i But our school trustees, led by Brother Seymour, bave decreed otherwise. The Jingle Pot  Coal Company is to be discriminated against, because some Germans bold shares in that company,  and our local firm, Hanbury 6 Co., are to be  blacklisted because they handle Jingle Pot coal,  , and our .taxpayers are to, p������y an extra $100 in  taxes to support this ridiculous example of mis-  placed patriotism. Surely nothing ntore thoroughly peck sniffian has ever transpired in our  midst.  . There seems to be quite an amount of German  capital at work in British Columbia land Alberta,  as the following extract from the Monetary Times  of September 11, 1914, shews:-  "The German Development Company, for instance, -representing important-Berlin- bankers,__  started in this country with a capital of $60,000  for the purpose of locating and developing mining properties in Canada. "Within one year tKe  investment was raised to a quarter of a million  dollars,, and later increased to $1,000jOOO. The  most important of the company's vent-ares (coal  lands in the West) were amalgamated-with, the  interests of the Canadian Northern Railway Company, and the monetary interest was recently  farther enlarged. The Canadian Northern Western railway will build into these coal .fields, representing an investment of $4,000,000, while the  coal mines which they will tap have received  $2,000,000 of foreign and chiefly German capital.  A little Belgian, French and English money is interested in this scheme. German capital to the  extent of $3,500,000 is invested in British Columbia coal lands, and in Alberta coal lands there  is about $3,000,000 of German capital."  If our policy were to confiscate this capital to  government uses as Germany has sought to do,  there might be some sense in the action of our  School Board, but to punish an essentially Vancouver coal company and an entirely, Vancouver  distributing agency because some German capitalists own shares in the Jingle Pot is like cutting  off your nose to spite your face.  The Jingle Pot collieries were first opened up  by a purely Vancouver syndicate under the name  of The Vancouver and Nanaimo Coal Company.  The members were H. "W.. Maynard, F. W.  Leeson, W. R. Phillips, J. W. Van Hoiiten, H. W.  Bentley, E. H. Honey man, G; L. Center, the two  Grant brothers and one more whose name escapes  us. They were all Vaneouverites, and mostly old  timers. H. W. Maynard was the first president,  and is president now.      ������  .In the process of development it became necs-  sary to enlist fresh capital, and as it could not h������  had here, an offer of German capital was accept  ed. That capital remains there today, and  amounts to about one-third of the total.  The property is entirely controlled by Vancouver men, all of whom we know and esteem,  and it is a very grave mistake that these, our  fellow citizens, should be discriminated against  in so public and harmful way.  Our School Trustees should backwater���������they  have run against a snag.  FROM OUR VANCOUVER KIPLING  COME OUT AND FIGHT  Qut on the deep, all white with foam  The watch dogs grim and grey;  With eagle eye, their guns stand by,  From dark till early day;      ,  No Bosun's call*<'to quarters," sound,  Their jaws are firm'and tight;,  ' Then savagely they look to land,  And cry, "Come Out and Fight!"  II.  Then every morn, when bell strikes eight,  The flag they love so dear  Floats out again across the main.  Hark!   How the tars they cheer,  Their pipes they blow, in watch below,  The eye of each man bright;  A growl goes round, 'tis the only sound,  "Kaiser, Come Out and Fight!" "  III.  In the dead of night, not a move���������no light,  All eyes are strained o'er the foam;  Like a great sea fowl, the .destroyers prowl,  Ready to strike right-home;  Four hours on, and four hours off,  Watching by day and by night;  On the nervesof the Tar its a bit of a jar,  And he mutters^ "Come Out and Fight!"  IV.  If they think they can do the boys in blue,  By,a wearing out movement like this;  In the vwords of the Tar:  *' They are straying  afar,  And had much better give it a miss." * ~  So.just as Drake inthe days of old,  Played on, when the foe were in sight,  Our lads on the seas are as much at their ease  Except that they want to fight.  ; - W.

WHY NOT AWO *0* CANADA  language of Britain Propoied* for Belgium  A remarkableproposal cornea from some Belgian leaders:  "We realize," say tbey, "that our  nation is seriously hampered by the lack of one ,  national language.   It is   impossible   to   make,  either Flemish or "Walloon universal, because of A  the rivalry of races.   We don't desire to encour-',  age the further use of French, wishing to maintain our distinct individuality and cultivate Brit-.  ish rather than French characteristics.   There-,  fore we propose that Belgium should adopt English as her national language, making herself the  Britain of the continent and the sister nation of  the England of the Isle."-      -    ���������-  -    ��������� ���������-  PAGAN W.A0* MOURNING A80U88JKD  The women of Britain hav$ Almost unanimously decided to abolish black colors as mourning garb for the loved ones lost at the front.

London.-^r-In an interview given to correspondent of Roman paper, "Winston Churchill  says: "The collapse of Austria appears to be  irreparable, and that is a tremendous event in  the history of the world.*'  PRICKING THE GERflAN BUBBLE   . ( '  Equally guilty with Germany in piratical tariffs is our neighbor, the United States. To her  traders, the war simply means an opportunity to grab the trade that Germany has lost. Already  the Monroe Doctrine is beginning in some American protective minds to cover trade.as well as political acquisition. The $35,000,000 voted by Congress to buy the German liners interned in American ports by the outbreak of war is an instance* of the aggression that is surjely coming, when the  German professorand the high protective tariff have done their deadly work in the U. S., as they  have in Germany.  This article is non-political. It has nothing to do with the political,necessities of the hour,  brought about by an abnormal world condition that has been becoming more acute, year by year,  for half a century. It is the setting forth, as we see it, of the first causes of the war. If a nation  wishes to be pre-eminent in trade otherwise than by merit of goods offered and accommodation  given, then they must fight for it, first by a war of tariffs; then by a bloody war of weapons.  Britain has nailed the Flag of Free Trade to her mast ,and in spite of all the piratical tariffs fashioned against her .she has won by shere pre-eminence in merit of her goods.  Britain's victory may be proved in many ways. Perhap. the most concise is in these  words: "She lends to all Nations and borrows of none." She has invested in the United States  the enormous sum of $3,800,000,000; in Argentina, $1,597,500,000; in Mexico, $495*000,000, and con-  siderable sums in Russia, Japan, Chile, Egypt and China. Throughout the Empire her investments,  increasing each year by leaps and bounds, are as follows:    ;,.;   . ;V.;,    ;  Canada and Newfoundland ,  Av.'.:). /I \   $2,574,350,000  India and Ceylon  .-rs *_...    $1,893,880,000  South Africa       ?......;.'. $1,760,960,000  Australia;    $1,610,660,000  New Zealand  ,      $ 421,670,000  West Africa /;   $ 186,626,000  Straits Settlements .' ,...; $ 136,466,000  Other Colonies : $ 176,316,000  A grand total of  $16,381,726,000  This war is, first and last, to destroy and plunder Britain���������the great trade rival.  And in this-���������let us make no mistake about it���������she-has the  openly  expressed  or unexpressed sympathy of the United States, the other great trade pirate of the world.  A kind Providence has put a man in the .President's chair who tees these things and  whose influence is all for good. , God grant he may prevail. , ,  \  ^  CALL TO PRAYER, Issued By AMERICAN PEACE SOCIETY  The American Peace Society has  issued a call on peace loving people  all over the land to unite in prayer  and to continue in prayer from day  to day until the world peace is restored.  The message, which is signed by  Senator Theodore F. Burton, president of the society, and Arthur D.  Call, director, follows:  "The frightful consequences of the  present European conflict are likely  to be beyond the wildest conjectures.  Never before in the history of the  world have such large' numbers of  men and such quantities of armament been "engaged in mortal combat;  never before have' such deadly machines of warfare been loosed in the  destruction of man and property.  ; "Many thousands' of lives- are being  sacrificed ���������daily and wilti continue to  be until this terrible conflict is stopped.  ' "The causes of the war are not  hard to understand nor dificult to  explain. The maintenance of enormous military and naval armaments  by the nations of Europe, costing no  less than $2,000,000,000 annually, and  a compulsory military ^service have  inevitably stimulated >a_ war like  spirit.  "It has been alleged that this vast  expenditure was for defense; that it  was for the maintenance of peace, but  the present war is an irrefutable answer to this argument. Men unarmed  are not liable to commit murder; nations unarmed da not .engage in war.  "Again, certain sovereigns have'  had an insatiable ambition to increase  their personal power and to extend  the territorial limits of their country;  regardless of the cost in men or  money.  "Then, too, there have been the intolerable secret alliances founded  upon an outgrown conception of effective statecraft. Added to these  causes are racial and religious animosities which have existed for centuries,  and trade rivalries and jealousies  which have been constantly growing  more acute.  "The burdens and miseries of the  war will fall not so much upon the  sovereigns of the nations engaged in  it as-upon the millions of men who  are fighting in the ranks, upon the  widows and orphans in the homes  whiich are, made desolate, and.upon  the generations yet unborn. "The  wheels of industry are still, commerce  is paralyzed, thousands of lives which  can never .be restored are' being sacrificed, and civilization is turned back  a' hundred years.  "In the midst of this distressing  calamity the peace loving people of  America have no, small responsibility.  The" president of .the United States  has1 just asked that the 4th day bf  October-be spent in prayer and sups  plication for a speedy termination of  this bloodshed and woe.  "Ministers might' well deliver sermons calling attention to the utter  follies and irreparable losses of war,  not only on October 4 but next Sunday and on every possible '' occasion.  A similar responsibility' rests upon  lecturers and upon the press.  "The various peace societies should  ���������with  renewed    vigor���������bend    their  energies toward creating a universal  sentiment for international right reason.-'  , "Peace" efforts,"exerted by a people  of a , great nation whose neutrality  and good- faith is undoubted, cannot  fail to have a salutary'effect. The  time must inevitably come when the'  peoples of the world will demand  that the controversies between nations shall be settled, by some form  of Judicial "procedure similar to that  now used in the settlement of controversies between individuals.  ' "Th*1 opportunity of the American  people seems at hand. The workers  for justice between? nations- may well  be horrified, 4>ut they need not. feel  discouraged. The cumulative disasters following in the wake of the armies, the futility of military theories,  the senselessness of .it all are apparent.  "The constructive upbuilders of  civilization may well believe that they  are soon to receive a new hearing before the bar o,f humanity. Let us of,  America; remembering all that is best  and noblest in our traditions, do  everything in our_power to carry forward the banner of the new international righteousness. We repeat, our  responsibility and our opportunity are  at hand.  "Therefore, we urge upon peace  loving people the country over the  importance of immediately discussing"  among themselves this terrible situation, and of uniting in prayer and supplication today, and tomorrow, and --.  of continuing their efforts on each  succeeding day until'world peace is  restored." , ;.  em  A LETTER FR0H THE MQTHPRUNP  We print" today "a "letter ~receive~d  by one of our Vancouver teachers  from the old home in Bristol, 'England:  '   -       , -       < Aug. 16th, 1914.

Phones Seymour 5408 & MW /
London.���This is the story of Marguerite Uytterbroeck, who lived
through the sacking of Louvain and
has reached London en route to the
town where she was born���Assumption, Illinois���the youngest child of a
family numbering nine. Marguerite,
aged 19, is sure that only her aged
mother, wlio was with her, is alive.
Three weeks, ago all her brothers and
sisters were together with their par-
ents-in a farm house on the outskirts
of Louvain.
"My mother and father," began the
girl, "went to the United States from
Belgium twenty-five years ago and
and settled at Assumption. , We
farmed there, but a year ago we all
moved back to Louvain, where father
bought a farm outside the city and renewed old acquaintances. Two of my
brothers and I had beeh planning to
return to Illinios in August, but when
the war came we decided to stay with
our parents. *
"There was fighting beyond Louvain the whole day and night before
the Belgian soldiers began to run
through the town with the Germans
hot on their trail. We all hid at first
and watched the pursuit between the
shutters, but when the first scare was
over we sat on the doorsteps and enjoyed the parade of the'German soldiers with their bands playing and
their good order.
Killed in Own Doorway
"Nobody had an idea they would
harm us, and it was almost like going
to a theatre to see. them march by.
They didn't pay any attention to us
for a time, but when the soldiers were
dismissed they began getting drunk.
Then things became bad.   I was at a

&
friend's house in the city, and the'
first thing I knew the house next door
was <>n1fire. When wejried to rush
out into the street bullets came
against the door like hail. My girl
friend*s father and mother were killed
in their own vestibule. xWe* turned
around and ran upstairs to the attic
and stayed there until flames began
coming through the walls. Then^we
got on to the roof and climbed along
over the. other roofs to the end of
the street, got down through the
house and out into the back garden,
over the wall and began to run
through the fields toward my house.
Peatb for ��U Wbo Ran
"AH of a sudden we saw coming
over the hill more German soldiers.
It was a hayfield. We both scrambled
under" stocks of hay. We saw a young
man running past. I shouted to him
to bury himself under the haystacks
���for the Germans shot anybody that
ran. He didn't stop and in an instant
later he fell dead. We waited until
the soldiers passed, then went on.
"It was dark. We ran almost into
two Uhlans. One of. them had an
electric torch. He flashed it in my
face and asked me where I was going.
"When I told him in English that I
was going to my house he asked if I
was English. I told him I was an
American, but he only laughed. He
was going to dismount when his horse
took fright at something, pitched him
on to the ground, and stunned him.
The other Uhlan also became frightened at something we could not understand, and he spurred up his horse
and. disappeared.
Her Sister Seized
.   "When I reached my house I found
the Germans had taken father and soldiers kindly offered to help me find
four brothers prisoners, and had
taken them away, where, mother did
not know. As we were" trying to decide what to do another company of
German soldiers came along, rode
over the fence, and set fire to the
house and barns. My two sisters told4
the soldiers what they thought of
such wickedness, and the last I saw
of them they were being carried off
by half a dozen soldiers, who never
came back.
"While the fire was burning fiercely I suddenly remembered a .piece of
paper a priest gave my mother in Assumption, when I was born. It was
in my_ room,_and .was my only.proof
that I was an American.   So I ran
my father and brothers.  We were to-r
gether at the station when the old
men were shot.   I asked the soldier
why they had been marched to the'
station to be shot.
"He pointed out the little flower
garden in front of the station and explained that all the streets of Louvain were paved with cobblestones,
and it would be too much bother to.
bury them, but by marching them to
the station, turf for graves was close
at hand.
"A great many citizens had been
held-prisoners in the courtyard of the
school.' I thought maybe father'and- _
my brothers would be there, so I got
the Red Cross soldiers to take me
around the house, climbed up over
the trellis and got into my room, al- ^here!

WATCH OUT! "BRITAIN,!' NOT"ENQUND," WORD TO USE
Editor.^���As a Britisher I protest
against your continued missuse of the
term "England," when it is evident
that you are referring to matters pertaining to the United Kingdom.
At a .time like the present,'when
Scotland; Ireland, Wales and the Colonies are all doing their full share in
upholding the honor and dignity of
the Empire, it ill becomes a British-
Canadian newspaper to persistently
belittle our glorious name Britain, by
using the really provinical term
"England."
���'���-.������'/���' ;
If it is your intention to still continue using provincial terms, why not
hand the honors round, giving all'^a
show, by occasionally using the likewise provincial terms "Scotland,"
"Ireland," or even "Wales." They
have as much right to have their name
on the Empire's-signboard as England. To use, however, either one or
other is not only wrong, but, when
persisted in' is offensive and insulting.
Mr. John Redmond put the matter
in a nutshell the other day when
speaking of the Irish brigade, he
said:    "We have   a  right  to   claim,
jthat Ireland may gain national credit
for their deeds and feel like the other
communities of the Empire.^ that she,
too, has contributed an army bearing
her name in this historic struggle."
I am aware that London newspapers
of the Little England type continually
misuse the term England,' with the
purpose of belittling the other partners, but that is not the course for a
paper with broad British views and
sympathies to follow.
With the hope' that in the future
we may have you wnth us in our de
sire to uphold the dignity of our name,
"Britain."
���. W. THOMPSON.
. :i
This letter is quite pertinent" now
that the. Empire has been united as
never before. The name England
represents the Engles or Angles���
Engelahd or Angleland���-but "Britain" is derived from "Berith tan" and
represents "The Land of the Covenant," which takes in the old Lion and
al) the young Lions. Let us-see the
bigger name more, and avoid sectional jealousies.���Ed.

"We reiterate, as men passionately  loving our Fatherland, and although  living in exile, serving our country to  the Utmost of our power, that it is  the duty of every man who cares for  the welfare of mankind to join hands  in arresting the Kaiser and the men  around him responsible for the appalling crimes which have disgraced  our nation in the eyes of the world.  "No matter how long the campaign  and how great the sacrifice it may entail, we know that the true and lasting  interests of the toilers and wage earners in Germany can only be served by  the victory of the Allied armies.  <  "The Kaiser, having ruined the innocent and deceived Belgium, is now  despoiling France and drenching the  land with the blood of his victims.  "It must, therefore, b,e plain to all  honest men, without distinction of  race or creed or party, that there can  be no settlement of the existing disruptions, no lasting peace or security  for the rights of man and no protection of democracy from brigandage  and death until the Imperial domination of Prussia within Germany is  crushed^ disarmed and swept away  forever.  "Then, and then only, will Bavaria,  .Wurtemburg, Saxony and Hanover be  rescued > and Poland liberated from  the grip of the Monarch who, by his  conduct, has forfeited the allegiance  of his subjects., and by his boasted  defiance of all international treaties  and conventions, has embarked upon  a career of crime unparralleled in  ancient or modern history.
