WITH THE AMERICANS NEAR
SOIS|SONS, July 19.—(2:55 a. m.)—
While preparations for the resump-
tion of the Franco-American drive,
between the Aisne and the Marne
were in full swing this morning, some
of the soldiers who had battled al-
tillery, machine guns, rifles and sup
plies and sprinted eastward. The
area captured by the Americans be-
tween the Aisne and the Ourcq had
more than 150 artillery pieces of var-
ious calibres in it. The enemy saved
practically none of them, as the Amer-

The military party in Germany start-
ed the war because it believed the tlmo
ripe for conquest.
Proof that ambition, and not consid-
eration of its own safety, prompted
Germany to begin the war is given by
the fact that Serbia and Belgium, two
helpless little nations, were the first

German plotters and spies, under
the direct leadership of the German
ambassador to this country, worked
almost openly, blowing up industrial
plants, sinking ships in our harbors,
and menacing railroads and canals.
Germany, spurred by successes,
openly began to announce plans for
disciplining the United States. She
scoffed at the Monroe doctrine, and
tried to create a German state in

Germany's invasion of Belgium meant
the tearing up of every treaty which
existed between Germany and other
nations. It was ample Justification for
America going to war at that moment.
This did not spur America at the
time, but Germany's cruelties in Bel-
gium, surpassing anything ever before
known in modern history, gave further
evidence that the world was not safe

Then came Germany's conduct on
the sea. With her batt'.efleet crnveniy
gard of treaties, and her evident re-
liance on force alone, Germany was
rapidly making the world an unsafe
place in which to live, forcing all oth.
er nations to adopt the military sysi
tern, or be at her mercy.
The German ambition to force Ger
man kultur on the remainder of tha
world was well exploited. Kultur, to
the German mind, was not what cul
