. We have heard quite a number of
citizens from various parts of the
county severely criticise the t late
grand jury for not bringing "an indict
ment against G. W. Mills for killing
J. H. Hall at Fellowship a few months
ago. Not that there is any enmity
against Mr. Mills or a special desire
that he should have been convicted;
but it is difficult to understand why
an act of this sort should have been
smothered in the grand jury room.
There is a general feeling that had
some friendless man been the defend defendant
ant defendant he would have certainly been in indicted;
dicted; indicted; and if he hadn't had a mighty

convicted of manslaughter, at the
least. A grand jury harno business
to be so chickenhearted. The Star has
great sympathy with Mr., Mills.- It
doesn't believe he had any idea of
striking down, let alone killing, his
neighbor. But justice demanded that
he be brought to trial, and in. not in indicting

moves men in the German army and navy to commit outrages against humanity
is embodied in the German kaiser. Here the artist has Shown the autocrat and his
Warriors as they really are. In their effort to put the hobnailed heel of Prussian Prussian-ism

as to Taking of Hostages.

by the committee on public infor information:
mation: information: Minister Whitlock, in his report of
September 12, 1917, to the secretary of
states, gives an Instance of the Ger German

The Germans attacked Hougaerde
on the 18th August ; the Belgian troops
were holding the Gette bridge in the
village. The Germans forced the par parish

After the retreat of the Belgians the
Germans shot four men, burned. 50
houses, and looted 100."
Hugh Gibson, in "A Journal From

gives another Incident:
"Two old priests have staggered In Into

One of them is. Ill, and it Is said that

Statement of Cardinal Mercier.
"At the time of the Invasion Bel Belgian
gian Belgian civilians, In 20 places, were made
to take part in operations of war
against their own country. At Ter Ter-monde,
monde, Ter-monde, Lebbeke, Dinant and elsewhere
in many places, peaceable citizens,
women and children were forced to
march in front of German regiments
or to make a screen before them.
The system of hostages was carried
out with a fierce cruelty. The procla proclamation
mation proclamation of August 4th, quoted above,
declared, without circumlocution :
'Hostages will be freely taken.'
"An official proclamation, posted at
Liege, In the early days of August, ran
thus: "Every aggression 'committed
against the German troops by any per persons
sons persons other thn soldiers in uniform
not only exposes the guilty person to
be immediately shot, but will also en entail

the Inhabitants, and especially against
those natives of Liege who have been

"These hostages are Monsignor Rut Rut-ten,

and sheriff of Liege."
The above quotation is taken from
"An Appeal to Truth," addressed No November

the following cases :

the cardinal, deprived of the use of hlsl

pretexts heavy fines are inflicted on
communes. The commune of Puers
was subjected to a fine of 3,000 marks
because a telegraph wire was broken,
although the inquiry showed that it
had given way through wear."
In addition to such arbitrary,
sporadic exactions, in December, 1914,
the Germans demanded 40,000,000
francs ($8,000,000), a month to be
paid by the Belgian provinces jointly.
Concerning this enormous imposition
Cardinal Mercier says, in the "Appeal

"It was on this impoverished Bel Belgium,

And put in a claim for exemption
Oh, why didn't I hold up my hand:

Why didn't I writ to be cheered:
For the drafted mer get all the credit
While I merely volunteered.
And nobody gave me a banquet,
