The feat of saving 2800 soldiers

British and American sailors when a

a year ago even seamen would have
thought it impossible. To those who
have friends and relatives going to

may be sure that our government

lives of their soldiers as exceedingly
) precious and will throw away almost
anything to save a man.

The Time-Union says that the fuel

Jacksonville, where the pay roll on
government work is estimated at a

We hope that Senator Trammell
will not resign to enter the army.
While we differ with Mr. Trammell in
some matters, we have always found
him a pretty good scout, and he is
making a fair to middling senator. He

in the army, and he certainly is a
much better senator than any man

The action of Gov. Catts in ap appointing
pointing appointing his son-in-law tax collector
of Duval county is the most rotten
piece of nepotism ever perpetrated in
this state. It is an imposition on Du

It seems to be fairly well proven

This was the man whose various
acts of consideration towards me,
whose talents aud personal charms,
had made such a favorable impression
upon me I How trivial and inconse inconsequential
quential inconsequential they all seemed now Clear Clearly,
ly, Clearly, they were all a part of the role he
had been playing for years. While he
was outwardly displaying all the ear earmarks

In his true colors and had shown him
to be capable of deeds which I should
have thought were foreign to his na nature,
ture, nature, his presence always had a most
remarkable effect upon me.
I have a vivid mental Impression of
him now as I write. He Is standing In
the center of my room, drawn up to his
full height, his shoulders thrown back,
his left hand upon the hilt of his
sword and his right emphasizing his
remarks, protesting in the most earn earnest
est earnest manner that It was not he who was
responsible for the war and all its
horrors, but that it had come upon
the world despite all he had done to
prevent it. His ready, well-chosen
words entrance me, I feel that this
man must be telling me the truth and
I am ready to believe that before me
stands the most unjustly judged man
In the world.
And then he shakes my hand in fare farewell
well farewell and is driven a'way, and as I gaze
at the spot where he stood, there comes
before my eyes the desolation of Bel Belgium,
gium, Belgium, the tragedy of the Lusltania, the
despoliation of France and Poland, the
destruction of women and children in
London and Paris and a thousand and
one other atrocious deeds which belie
the kaiser's fair words, and I realize
that I have been talking to the world's
most finished actor and have simply
been bewitched by the power of his
personal magnetism.

was unmarred by a single war, al although
though although twice during that period, once
In 1905 and again in 1911, he nearly
succeeded in precipitating a conflict.
Subsequent developments have
brought out clearly enough that during
all these years of peace, the kaiser
was only awaiting the opportune mo.
ment to bring on war.
Germany's preparation consisted not
merely in building up her army anq
navy and developing a military spirit
in her people, but in trying to estab estab-lish
lish estab-lish friendships abroad where they
would do the most good In the event
of a world war.
The German military preparation
was more or less obous. The kaiser
was always its warmest advocate and
frankly admitted that it wras his inten intention
tion intention to remain armed to the teeth, al although
though although he protested to me many times
that his sole object was to maintain
the peace of the world.
In 1913, for instance, I was In The
Hague when Carnegie delivered a
speech at the opening of the Peace
palace, in the course of which he de declared
clared declared that the kaiser was a stumbling-block
in the way of world peace.
When I got back to Berlin I mention mentioned
ed mentioned the fact to the kaiser, hoping to
draw him out.
"Yes, I know exactly what Carnegie
said at The Hague," he replied rather
testily, "and I don't like the way he
spoke at all. He referred to me as the
'war lord and said I was standing in
the way of world peace. Let him look
at my record of twenty-five peaceful
years on the throne! No, the surest
means to maintain the peace of the
world is my big army and navy Other
nations will think twice before going
to war with us !" The fact that he had
previously accepted 5,000,000 marks
from Carnegie for the furtherance of
universal peace didn't seem to occur
to him.
And the world at large learned more
or less of German intrigue and propa propaganda

in or command the respect of nations
which she hoped would remain neutral
or might even be induced to throw in
their lot with hers in the event of
In this phase of Germany's prepara'

tion for war, the kaiser took a leading
It is a fact, for instance, that prac

tically every officer in the Chilean
army is a German, and the kaiser has
spared no pains to foster the friend friendship
ship friendship of the South American republics,
commercially and diplomatically.
One of the South American minis ministers
ters ministers told me of an ex-president of
Peru who had visited Berlin. This
Peruvian had previously visited Lon London
don London and Paris and had received little
or no official attention in either of
those capitals. For reasons best
known to himself, the kaiser decided
to cater to this gentleman, and accord-1

ingly arranged an audience.
In the discussion which took place
when they met, the kaiser displayed
such a remarkable acquaintance with
Peruvian affairs and the family his history
tory history and political career of his visitor
that the South American was stunned.
When he returned home he carried
with him a most exalted Idea of the
all-pervading wisdom of the German
emperor. To what extent the kaiser
had spent the midnight oil preparing
for this interview I have no knowledge,
but knowing the importance he placed
upon making a favorable impression
at all times I have a mental picture of
his delving deeply into South Ameri American
can American lore In preparation for his guest.
There is nothing dearer to the kaiser
than caste and social distinction. Mor Morganatic
ganatic Morganatic marriages were naturally ab abhorrent
horrent abhorrent to him. Nevertheless, before
Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the suc successor
cessor successor to the Austrian throne, was
, murdered, the kaiser not only recog recognized
nized recognized his morganatic wife, who was
only a countess, but went out of his
way to show her deference. He placed
her at his right at all state functions
which she attended. To bring Austria
and Germany closer together, he was
willing to waive one of his deep-rooted
The significance of the kaiser's
many visits to Italy, his presentation
of a statue to Stockholm, his yachting
excursions in Scandinavian waters,
his flirtations with Turkey from his
castle on the Island of Corfu, and sim similar
ilar similar acts of lngratlation, becomes quite
apparent in the face of more recent
developments, but his efforts to curry
favor with America during all the
years of peace which preceded the war
were so much more elaborate that they
deserve more than passing mention.
No more subtle piece of propaganda
was ever conceived than the kaiser's
plan of exchanging professors between
the United States and Germany
through the establishment of the
Roosevelt and Harvard chairs at the
University of Berlin and corresponding
chairs at Harvard and other American
universities. Ostensibly the purpose of
the project was to foster good-will be between
tween between the two nations. Actually, it
was intended to Germanize Americans
to such an extent that their co-operation
might be relied upon In the event
of war for which Germany was sed sedulously
ulously sedulously preparing.
It was believed that the exchange of
professors would accomplish the Ger German
man German purpose in two ways: not only
could the professors the kaiser sent to
America be depended upon to sow Ger German
man German 6eed in American soil, but the
American professors who were sent to
Berlin, it was hoped, qpuld be so in inoculated
oculated inoculated with the German viewpoint
that when they returned to their na
tive land they would disseminate it
among their associates and students.
Some time before the kaiser con conceived
ceived conceived the scheme of the Exchange
Professors, he sent his brother. Prince
Henry, to this country to draw the
two nations closer together and to in instill
still instill In the heart of every child born
in America of German parents an
abiding love for the fatherland.
Just before the war broke out, he
was planning to send one of his sons
here with the same object
He told me of his project and asked

me to which part of the United States
I thought he ought to send the prince.
"That depends, your majesty," I re replied,
plied, replied, "upon the object of the visit.
If the purpose is to meet American
society, I would recommend such
places as Newport in summer and
Palm Beach in winter. To come In
contact with our statesmen and diplo diplomats,
mats, diplomats, Washington would naturally be
the most likely place to visit."
The kaiser thanked me for the in information
formation information but did not enter into fur further
ther further details as to the object he had
in mind or which son he had planned
to send across.
It was to curry favor with America
that the kaiser had his yacht Meteor
built in our shipyards, and it is a fact
that more American women were pre presented
sented presented at the German court than those
of any other nation.
When he presented a statue ol
Frederick the Great to this country,
in McKinley's administration, it cre created

could be less appropriate, it was ar argued,

the interest of diplomacy and had ii
erected in front of the Army building.
Seeing that his gift had had just the
opposite effect to that intended, th
kaiser reprimanded his ambassadot
for not having interpreted American
sentiment more accurately.
A few days after the death of Kinj

and to curry favor "with
But Roosevelt was not the only
American to whom the kaiser made
overtures. He was constantly Inviting
American millionaires to pay him
yachting visits at Kiel or wherever
else he happened to be.
He sat for a portrait by an Ameri American
can American painter, which was exhibited with
a large collection of other American
works under the kaiser's auspices.
There was nothing that the kaiser
did not do In his efforts to Ingratiate
himself with this country In the hope
that he would reap his reward when
the great war he was1 anticipating
eventually broke out.
Taken Individually, these various In Incidents
cidents Incidents seem trivial enough, but I
have every reason to know that the
kaiser attached considerable Impor Importance
tance Importance to them. I know that there was
a good deal of chagrin In the tirades
he delivered to me against America for
her part in supplying munitions to the
allies, chagrin at the thought that the
seed he had sown In America had
failed to bring forth better fruit.
When we finally entered the war and
he realized that all his carefully nur nurtured
tured nurtured plans of years had availed him
naught, he could not restrain his bit bitterness
terness bitterness nor conceal his disappoint
"AH my efforts to ehow my friend friendship
ship friendship for America exchanging profes professors
sors professors with your colleges, sending my
brother in your country, all all for
nothing!" he exclaimed, disgustedly,
after we had entered the war.
On another occasion he showed even
more clearly how far America had fal fallen
len fallen short of his expectations:
"What has become of those rich
Americans who used to visit me with
their yachts at Kiel and come to my
entertainments in Berlin T he asked,
sarcastically. Now that we have
England involved, why aren't they
utilizing the opportunity to serve and
to make their own country5 great? Do
they think I put myself but to enter entertain
tain entertain them because I loved them? I
am disgusted with the whole Anglo Anglo-Saxon
Saxon Anglo-Saxon race !"
The kaiser couldn't understand why
the United States did not seize both
Canada and Mexico. Apparently, from
the way he talked from time 'to time,
if he had been sitting in the White
House he would have grabbed the en entire
tire entire Western Hemisphere.
That the kaiser followed American
politics very closely, especially after
the war broke out,' was very natural.
The fact that there was a great German-American
vote In this country
was not overlooked in Potsdam, and I
haven't the slightest doubt the kaisjr
imagined that he could exert consider considerable
able considerable influence in our elections through
his emissaries In this country.
I returned to Berlin late in October
of that year. Within a day or two
after my arrival I received a telephone
message from the Reichskanzler von
Bethrmtnn-Hollweg to the effect that
the kaiser had sent him word of my
return and that he would like me to
call at his palace either that noon or
at four p. m.
I was ushered into a very large room
in the corner of which was a1 business businesslike
like businesslike looking flat-topped desk, but which
was otherwise elaborately furnished.
The reichskanzler, a tall, broad-shouldered,
handsome specimen of a man,
came over to me and, putting his arm
in mine, walked me to a seat beside
the desk. He asked me what I would
smoke, and upon my taking a cigar cigarette,
ette, cigarette, he did likewise.
"The kaiser's been telling me, doc doctor,"
tor," doctor," he said, "of your recent visit to
America, and I would like to ask you
a few questions."
I said that I was always glad to talk
of America. Indeed, I was particular particularly
ly particularly glad of the opportunity to speak
with the prime minister of Germany at
that time.
Then followed a bewildering succes succession
sion succession of questions, the purpose of
which was not at all clear to me. We
had a peculiar conversation half in
German, half in English. The reichs
kanzler did not speak Englinh partic particularly
ularly particularly well.
"How are things in America?" he
asked. "Did you have any opportu
nity to gauge the political situation?
Who do you think will be the next
president? Do you think that Ameri Americans
cans Americans are opposed to peace because
that would end their chance to make
money out of the war? Are your
people so mercenary that they would
like to see the war prolonged for the
sake of the money they can make out

"No, your excellency, I replied,
"you are quite wrong If you imagine
that my countrymen would like to pro
long the war for the sake of war war-profits.

the case. On the contrary, the coun
try at large Is anxious for peace."
"Dont forget your people are mak
ing a lot of money out of this war,'
the reichskanzler persisted. "They
are becoming very rich. They will
soon have all the gold in the world.
Putting an end to the war would to a
great extent end American opportunl
ties for making money on this enor
mous scale."
That may be all true, I replied.
"but fortunately my countrymen think
! more of the blessings of peace and
liberty than they do of war and profits.
and the sooner peace can be brought
about on a basis which will have

pome assurance of permanency the bet

"Wilson has the greatest opportu opportunity

his name immortal by bringing about
peace In the world," he went on. "We
feel now that he Is not our friend, but
friendly to the allies, but nevertheless
he may be able to see that if this war
Is prolonged Indefinitely It will mean
the destruction of all the nations in involved

any possibility of America entering

"That, of course; will depend, your

that nothing In the world will keep us

Hughes has been talking on the
stump, declared the reichskanzler.
"Did you hear any of his speeches or
any of Wilson's?"
I said I had had no opportunity to
hear any of the campaign speeches,
but that I had followed them In the
"Well, did you gather from what
you read that the American people
want to see peace In Europe or do
they want the war to go on so they
can continue to make fortunes out

Again I replied that I was certain
our country would never be influenced
by such sordid considerations as were
Implied In the reichskanzler's question,
but that If v the right kind of peace
could be brought about the whole
country would eagerly embrace it.
The subject of the U-boat campaign
was never mentioned and It was not
until several months later when the
submarine warfare was started again
on a greater scale than ever that I
realized that the whole purpose of
this Interview was to ascertain If they

It isn't strange with the whole world
at war and millions of men training
at gun-drills that some boys will get
the gun-drill fever. No doubt they
think they can help their country In
that way. Let's see about that, says
a scout official In answering a scout
who wants to drill with guns.
Uncle Sam has asked the boy scouts
to serve in the first, the second and
the third Liberty loan campaigns; he
has enlisted them as his dispatch bear bearers
ers bearers in the drive against Hun propa propaganda
ganda propaganda in America; he has given them
a big and important job in boosting
the sale of Thrift and War Savings
stamps ; but as far as I have heard he
hasn't asked a single boy scout to put
a gun to his shoulder and drill.
Why hasn't Uncle Sam given guns
to his boys? Because he knows they
can be a thousand times more helpful
in "winning the war In other ways. The
youngster parading around with a rifle
no doubt is a splendid fellow, and
eager to help; but In this particular
case he is on the wrong track.
The boy scout movement is now, al always
ways always has been and always will be a
nonrailitaristic organization, and gun
drills do not have a place in its pro program
gram program of activities. The best military
experts in the country do not believe
in gun drills for boys of scout age.
And that is only one of the many rea reasons
sons reasons why military gun drill and "tin
soldiering" activities are not made a
part of scouting. There's plenty of
other more necessary things to do for
'teen-age boys. When you are older
Uncle Sam will give you-the real thing
in drill, under competent officers, and
you will be. taught the use of the rifle
as a technical weapon the purpose of
which Is to kill. For the present, in
preparation, the government wants
boys to do other and more helpful and
practical things.
