Every American who has patted
through France and Belgian) of lat
hoi returned home a permanently
saddened man. German cruelty and
French agony have cut a bloody ganh
in the heart, and there is no Dakin
solution that can heal the wound.
For three years German-Americans
have protested that the stories 01'
German atrocities were to be dis-
believed as English inventions, Bel-
gian lies and French hypocrisies;
but that day has gone by. When the
representatives of the nations as-
semble for the final settlertient there
will be laiu before the delegates of
Germany affidavits. photograph,
with othei legal proofs that estab-
lish German atrocities more clearly
than wore the scalpings of ihe Sioux
Indians on the western frontiers,
the murders in the Black Hole of
Calcutta, or the crimes of the Span- j
ish Inquisition. On a battle line
three hundred miles in length, in |
whatsoever village the retreating J
Germans passed. the following i
morning accredited men hurried to j
the scene to make the record against
the day of judgment. The photo-
graphs of dead and mutilated girls,
children and old men tell no lies.
Jurists rank high two forms of tes-
timony—the testimony of what ma-
ture men have seen and heard, and
the testimony of children too inno-
cent to invent their statements, but
old enough to tell what they saw.
For the first time in history, tho
German has reduced savagery to a
science, therefore this great war for
peace must go on until the German
cancer is cut clean out of the body.
The cold catalogue of German
atrocities now documented and in
the government archives of the dif-
ferent nations make the most sick-
ening page in history. Pays spent
upon the records preserved In south-
ern "Belgium, northern France, or In
and about Paris; days spent In the
ruined villages of Alsace and Lor-
raine, leave one nauseated physi-
cally and mentally. It is one long,
black series of legally documented
atrocities. Every solemn pledge that
Germany signed at The Hague con-
vention a year and a half before the
war as to safeguarding women and
children and unarmed citizens, has |
been scoffed at as a "scrap of pa-
per." These atrocities also were
committed not in a mood of drunk-
enness. nor an hour of anger, but j
were organized by a so-called Ger- |
man efficiency, and perpetrated on
a deliberate, cold, precise, scientific
policy of Gorman frlghtfulness. It
!h not simply that they looted fao-
tor'es, carried away machinery,
robbed bouses, bombed every farm-
house and granary, left no plow or
reaper, chopped down every penr
tM<$ and plum tree and every grape
vine, and poisoned all wells! The
Germans slaughtered old men and
matrons, mutilated captives in ways
that can only be spoken of hy men
in whispers; violated little girls
until they were dead. I inding a
calfskin nailed upon a barn door to
be dried, the nailed a babe beside
It and wrot beneath the word
"ZweP; they thrust women and chil-
dren between themselves and sol-
diers coming up to defend their na-
tive l*nd; bombed and lotted hospi-
tals, Red Cross buildings, violated

ities can not oven be named.—Newell
