"I look after my dear working people
as does a father hla children. I build
beautiful hoiuea for them, pay widowa'
pensions; also pension for old age,
sickness, loss of work and Increares in
families. I pay high wages, limit work-
ing hoars, make loans easy to farmers.
I have no slums as do America and
tlreat Britain; I adjudicate all strikes.
Mine la the land of the care-free and
That Is the bolled-down-to-a-few-sen-
tencea propaganda that Germany cov-
ered the whole world with before the
war with the ostensible purpose of
weakening the morale of her enemies
In the war she then was planning.
Great credit Is due to Chairman Eas-
ley of the National Civic Federation In
his published refutation of Germany's
claims; just a few Items from that
valuable document will prove Illumi-
Widows' pensions In Germany dur-
ing a series of years averaged 35 cents
a week ; sick pensions 95 cents a week ;
Invalidity pension the same; orphans'
pensions 37 cents a week. Wages
averaged per day for carpenters $1.45;
plumbers $1.25; railway employees—
engineers and conductors on state rail-
ways, 70 cents; shop workers $1.02;
male farm labor 72 cents; female farm
labor 42 cents.
And this In a land where govern-
ment statistics placed average cost of
keeping families at over $500 per year.
How did they muke both ends meet?
By working the whole family; every
lecond w^man In Germany worked dur-
ing the before-the-war period—nearly
10,000,000 all told--—and as the writer
?nn testify from an extended trip
throughout the empire, at the hardest
As to hours: those of skilled labor
ran about 58 per week, In textile and
other lines from 12 to 14 per day. In
1011 the big stores of Berlin kept open
till 9 at night and some hours on Sun-
days—though that last was remedied
the following year. The smaller stores
were even worse as to hours. A bank-
ing concern across from my hotel
worked from 7 In the morning to 9 at
Regarding strikes which Germany
claimed to always adjudicate; that
year I saw the beginning of such a
disturbance in the Moablt section of
Berlin—and the end, for the authorities
settled it In true Ilomesteud fashion
by shooting down the ringleaders. It
mated only two days and the press
was allowed to say nothing about It.
However, the Vorwaerts referred to It
*nd was suppressed for three days ns
punishment. According to Mr. Eas-
ley’s statistics, more than two-thirds
the strikes in 1912 were unsuccessful
»nd labor unions only allowed to meet
ander government supervision.
As to slums—whoever has smelled
the horrible odors in Cologne—until
1914 the filthiest city In Europe in
some of its residence sections, will
laugh at Germany’s claim to being slum-
less. And what about the foulness of
Madgeburg and Dantzlg? East London
Is Faradise alley by comparison. Ber-
lin, the show city of the empire, looks
like a town of palaces with the streets
lined by stucco-fronted houses, but
back of them—and this condition Is
much worse In Hamburg, Cologne,
Frankfort and other large towns—
stand the serried ranks of poverty’s
tenements, row upon row. Berlin has
more one-room tenements than any
other city In - the world. Families of
six and seven herding In one apart-
ment and a hall bathroom doing serv-
ice for half a dozen such families.
As to land distribution: over a third
of Germany’s farms are less than \*A
acres in size; 22.6 per cent between
IVt and 5 acres; 17.5 per cent, 5 to 12
acres; 18.6 per cent, 12 to 50 a. res;
while 23,566 junkers, the land barons,
own nearly 25,000,000 acres, running
from 250 to 500 acres and more each.
The above Is only a small part of
the picture which Germany actually
presented to the world In the Before-
tiie-war period. Not of course what
-die claimed, but nevertheless collated
from her official records—all except
(he filth of her large cities. It sounds
Inviting to an American workingman,
does it not! And since then, of course,
conditions have gotten even worse with
women doing work that would stoop
the shoulders of the strongest man.
Oppression of farmers, underpaid
workers, enslavement of women and
children Industrially, shocking housing
conditions, chronic underfeeding with
resultant fearful infant mortality,
counterfeit social Insurance—are a few
counts in the Indictment made by Mr.
Easley against Germany before the
German efficiency goes to appalling
lengths, whether It is breeding German
subjects from the enslaved young
women of France and Belgium; or In
Issuing lying propaganda with which
to break down the morale of the
world’s democracy. Nothing Is too low,
nothing too awful for the Potsdam
spawn not to attempt.
Yet fools in America still mouth,

AMERICA AND ENGLAND
By GIDEON HOE
of tha Vigilantes.
Chester M. Wright, member of the
New York Typographical union, and
managing editor of the American Al-
liance for Labor and Democracy, nt
present In Europe as one of the rep-
resentatives of labor who went -broad
recently to reassure our allies of our
temper and sentiment In the war, has
been writing some very interesting re-
ports of his present experiences.
The following paragraphs are Illumi-
nating. They show the rapid growth
of a better understanding and warmer
fellowship between the English and
American free peoples:
“The English look to America as
to brothers; they look upon Ameri-
cans with affection. And their ad-
miration for our president knows no
bounds. When they hear the splendid
story of our trade union movement and
its firm position they know thut Amer-
ica will maks good. Having made
mistakes themselves, they know we
have made them, too, and will make
more. They understand us better
than we have Imagined.
“Here are two Indications of the
British regard for America. The
American mission visited Warwick to
be guests for a day at the historic
castle, built In the thirteenth century.
America is as mythical to the humble
folk of Warwick town as Warwick Is
to most Americans. But the mayor
ordered the American flag flown dur-
ing our visit. It was the first time an
American flag had ever flown to the
breeze In Warwick. Last night I vis-
ited a thenter—the Adelphia. A musi-
cal comedy was on the boards. Two-
thirds of the chorus’ costumes con-
tained the American colors. There
were Uncle Sams and American cow-
boys and Goddesses of Liberty. The
theaters have been doing this since
we came Into the war. They overlook
no way here of showing affection for
America. America must overlook no
way of making good I
“We were on the sea on April 6, the
anniversary of our eutry Into the war.
The event was celebrated, and those
who apoke most feelingly for America
were Canadian and British soldiers.
“The same love for democracy and
freedom that fires America and thrills
her people Inspires and thrills the peo-
ple of England. As many as must
will die for the cause. The Hun can
never win. Civilization must and will
be saved. The free people of the
world are bound in a new and Indis-

COMFORT TO GERMANY
By ROBERT ADGER BOWEN
of the Vigilantes.
It has been cause for amazement
mingled with a sharp regret that, dur-
ing the dark days of the German drive
against the British lines In Flanders,
following that upon the British lines
In Picardy, there should have broken
out In press and public alike that nar-
row and warped antipathy toward
England, which If It ever was other
than ungenerous and groundless, sure-
ly the debt we of America owe Great
Britain today should have silenced
into a humiliated but very sincere loy-
alty. On the contrary, there has been
far too evident a disposition to attack
England. Almost, it has seemed, the
disposition in the present Instance has
been based on a fear that was akin
to panic. The fighting quality of the
British has been openly belittled, and
this In the face of a splendid resist-
ance against all but overwhelming
odds that was being exemplified even
as these false accusations were made.
And this, It may be added. In the face
of all that history teaches since the
days of Alfred the Great to the pres-
ent years of this most momentous of
Such prejudice in us of Anglo-Saxon
lineage Is at any time unworthy of
our own best traditions. Today It Is
contemptible. If the echo of It has
reached Germany—and we may be
sure It has—It Is music to the ears of
those who, however they may have
looked upon England before this war,
have learned to their cost that they
can prevail against her only by force
of superior numbers and the Insensate
power Of modern artillery—whose hat-
red of her has become tinged by a
deadly fear which Is to be measured
by the horrible price Germany is will-
ing to pay for the hope of victory.
For those of us in this Anglo-Saxon
country whose heritage Is British to
seek to defame England Is truly a
graceless act. It smacks not of supe-
rior merit upon our own part but of
something very different. At least, let
us reserve our caustic criticism of her
until In this war we have done what
may be compared with what Britain
w*a —* nobly done.

Alfalfa In New Zealand.
The ralsiug of lucerne or alfalfa In
New Zeuland la receiving much atten-
tion of late, and the different varie-
ties are being tested, with the result
that there was cut during 1917 three
crops of Turkestan lucerne with a
total of 6 1-5 long tons per acre of the
green lucerne, weighing shortly after
cutting UH tons of Peruvian per acre,
12^4 tons of Poitou, 11U tons of Rus-
sian, 12 tons of Spanish, 121-3 tons
of Hungarian, 14 tons of Patagonian,
and 14% tons of Marlborough lucerne.
It Is estimated that the Patagonian and
Miirlhorough lucerne, when converted
Into hay, would give an approximate
yield of 814 tons each, which at $19.46
per ton gives a total value of $68.13
