What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WORLD DOMINATION SOUGHT America's Entrance the Decisive Fac- tor In the Mighty Struggle in Which Democracy Triumphed Over Irresponsible Auto- cratic Militarism. By EDWARD W. PICKARD. Autocratic militarism, Imbued with an overpowering greed for world domination, started the Great War. Democracy, Inspired with decency and common sense, ended it. \All wars are commercial\ Is a say- ing that 18 true of all modern wars. The greatest war of all time, just end- ed, was no less so than others, for though It was made by the military class of Germany, it was for the bene- fit of commercial Germany, for the conqpest of the trade of the world. Ever since the defeat,of France in 1870 and the formation of the German empire the ruling classes of Germany had been assiduously preparing for the mighty struggle that began in 1014. Secretly at times, with brazen frankness at others, they laid their plans, built Op their mighty military machine. extended their espionage sys- tem to all lands with the aid of the business houses and the diplomats. Though warned by more than one stu- dent of affairs, the world in general ignored all this or looked on it as merely boastfulness and legitimate trade competition. Germany's plan was nothing less than an enormous conspirucy to es- tablish what the conspirators knew as \Mittel Europa,\ a dominion extend- ing from the Nonth sea to the Persian gulf. As preliminaries, German princes were placed nit thrones of middle Europe wherever poesible, and financial rehitions were established that gave Germany virtual control over the coveted countries. Theft the nun autocracy impudently awaited \nrc Day.\ Excuse Was Ready -Made. Merely an excuse was needed to precipitate the conflict, and this was afforded on June 28, 1914, by the as- sassination of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria and his wife in Sarajevo, Bos- nia, by a Serbian. That this crime was Inspired to serve as a pretext is evidenced by the fact that everything was Prepared a few days in advance for putting the German military ma- chine in motion. Austria, under or- ders from Berlin, made demands on Serbia to which no self i respecting na- tion could submit, and on July 28 de- clared war on its neighbor. Russia, as ally of and sponsor for Serbia, mo- bilized its armies at once, despite the protests of Germany. whereupon' the kaiser declared war oh Russia. France, being in offensive and defens- ive alliance , with Russia, was com- pelled to mobilize, and the kaiser's armed forces got into action at once. The course of events so far had been foreseen by the German high com- mand and it was in accordance with its prearranged plan, which was to crush France by a swift advance on Paris, and then to turn about and make an end of Russia's military re- sistance. On August 2 German troops entered France at Clrey and began moving through Luxemburg, despite the spir- ited tiroteses of the grand duchess, and Berlin asked Belgium to permit the passage of troops through that country. This was refused, the king of Belgium appealing to the powers that had guaranteed the neutrality of his kingdont e All this time Great Britain had been striving to avert the outbreak of a general war, and Germany rested complacently on the Information of her spies that the British would not enter into the conflict. But Berlin reckoned without the British spirit of fair play and faithfulness to treaties, and when the kaiser tore up the \scrap of paper\ and invaded ,Belgium Great Britain jumped to the rescue. tier -mighty fleet was mobilized and her army, pitifully small, begun mov- ing across the channel. Then events came with dazing rapidity. One af- ter another the nations fell into line ngainst the Germnns and Austro-Hun- garlans, but the Teutons were ready and the others. except France, were not. The Invasion of Belgium. On August 5 began one of the most shameful cleapters in the history of the world—tile rape of Belgium. King Albert -and Ids heroic little army re - Meted to their utomst, but the suppos- edly Impregnable forts of Liege, Na- mur and other Belgian towns were speedily reduced by the Hun cannon and the hind and its people were made captive. The atrocities committed by the Germans, officers and privates alike, will remain a blot on the name of Germany to the end of all time, The world has been so well informed eoneerning those brutal crlinei that it Is unnecessary to recapitulate them. Having overrun all but n narrow strip of Belgiem, the Hun armies pe- g fIll what Berlin fondly believed was to be H 11'111111111111 - march to Paris. England's little regular army was thrown Ilel'OSH their path and fought mid tiled almost to a man, and side by side Ivith them the French Pettus con - dieted every foot. They were pushed hnek slOwly -htiturely • until Sterne was reached and crossed by the invading hosts amil the capital seemed to be within the grasp of tha ibins. Then came forward the first heroic figure of the war, Marshal Joffre of Frunce. Commandeering every motor vehicle In Paris, he rush- ed to the front the entire force left to (1(4(.10 the capital end In a !nighty battle along the Manic the Germans were defeated. They had 8111V1111 out too munch 1111t1 tell their right flunk to he turned and were driven back to the northeast. Reaching lines prepitred with this possibility in view they \dug In\ and then began a period of trench warfare that lasted for three years, in the course of which there were no remarkable guins of territory hr either side. Under the management of Lord Kitchener Britain's millions were be- ing enlisted mid trained and trans- ported to the battle grounds. Not only from the homeland did they come, but from- Cillialda, Australia, New Zealand, hulia, South Africa and all of the far-flung possessions' of the empire, with an ardor that settled for all time the question of their loyalty to that empire. Ireland alone held back to a considerable extent, hoping to gain independence and making it- self '111C hatching ground for many a Gentian plot. Kitchener's great work practically accomplished, lie went to his death when it Germain submarine sank the cruiser on which he was going to Russia. Germany's Submarine Warfare. In the first months of the war the British fleets, sided by the Japaneee, took away Germany's island C010111CH, and then, having almost full mastery of the seas, established a blockade of Clernamy designed to starve her into submission. The reply to this was quick in coining. The Germans start- ed out their submarines at once, and began building more and bigger me dersea vessels. INsregarding the rec- ognized laws of warfare; they declared unrestricted war on all vessels of their enemies, and it murderous career' that finally resulted in dragging the United States into the conflict and bringing defeat to themselves. The first notable victim of this method of warfare was the Lusitania, more than ir thoileand of whose passengers.per- ished. On this and many another ves- sel that was sent down by the sub - Marines were American citizens, and there - was a powerful demand on our government to stop the.practice or to enter the war. For nearly two years President Wil- son held back, writing numerous notes of protest to Berlin and receiving an equal number of fulse promises. Early in 1017 Berlin announced that submarine warfare thereafter would be unrestricted—as it had been in reality most of the time—and there was nothing left the United States but to declare a state of war with Ger- many. Thia was done on April 6 and from that fateful day the doom of Germany's great conspiracy was set- tled. America's Wonderful Effort. With amazing energy and speed America went at the tremendous task of making an army out of its civilian population. There were many mis- takes and many delays, but these are almost forgotten in the contemplation of the marvelous success with which the thing was acuomplielted. After a long and heated debate, the selective draft system of raising an army was adopted, and young men by the hun- dred thousand were taken from their civilian pursuits, put in immense training camps and made into soldiers. To 'command them, thousands of of- ficers were trained in other camps. In the incredibly short (tine of one year nearly two million fighting men, as efficient as the world has ever Item had been transported across the At- lantic, with all the vast supplies re- quired; and at home the industries of the land had been reorganized for the business of war. Knowing well the arduousness of the task of winning the war, the government bent every ef- fort to it and tbe draft age limits were extended to include all men between the eget of eighteen and forty-six. Many thousands of those thus drafted were in training when the war came tO a close. America's arrival in France was most timely. Though the crown prince had failed miserably In his attempt to force a way to Paris by the N'eriiiif route in 1916, the Germans never gave up their plans to take the French cap- ital, and in the spring of 1918, with re-enforcements released from the eastern front by the collapse of Itus- sin, tlf$y began a powerful drive in northern France. In the first stage of this they reached the Somme, and in the second they got to the Marie. again, only 55 miles from l'aris. Yankees to the Rescue. The Yankees, who were getting their final training behind the lines, had not yet seen very- much action, but In this crisis their commander, General Pershing, offered their Imme- diate services to the British anti Freneh. Brigaded with the allies, they 'went into battle with n rush that inspired the tired Ternaries and Poilus, and the advance of the Huns was checked. Generty Foch, Frill - ice's master strategist, was made suPreine commmuler of the allies in the west, and he at once began delivering the series -of terrific strokes that ultimate- ly forced the Germans back to their own bordera. Fighting with the French, the Americans had a big part In clearing out the Marne salient; fighting with the British, they gave great help In the allied victories fur- ther north. Then the First American field army was organized, placed on the extreme west of the line and there wiped out the St. Millie' salient and started on the operations that 112 less '41ein two months -cut the enemy's line 01.f emninunleatien from Metz ttlo 111Conlentid the capture of all s telt hi Fril . .ee. heii Russia's vast et gel Into action Germiiiiy will bi. et - 11 , 114.d as under a steam roller\ said ev, I in 1014, and for ri time this Pridicilon bade fair to he realized.

They won over the Atearlans for a long time and invaded the regions of I fit I In irridenta along the Adriatic, threatening Trieste. Then subtle Teuton propaganda, coupled with tie- featiet.work at home, brought disaster on thein. Helped by Getman divisions, Austriane made a tremendous drive and forced the Italians back to the Piave river line. There tire con - teen stood for many -months, until the middle of June, 1918, wheu under Gen- eral Dinz, the Ballarat not only stop- ped another offensive, but turned it into a great defeat and rout which culminated In the surrender of Alla. tria. This was hastened by the fall- ing to pieces of the Austro-llungarlun empire, the states of which were es- tablishing their independence, follow- ing the Lead of the Czecho-Slovaks. Turkey, with the aid of Germane, administered to Great Britain two set - becks that were rather humiliating. The first was at the Dardanelles, which the British tried to force, first with navy alone, then with hind nnol sea forces. Both attempts Were dIsnre trims failuro.s. The other defent by the Turks was in Mesopotamia, where Gerieral Townshend and his nriny w - ere captured at Kul-el-Muerte Both theme reverses were more than com- pensated for by the later conquest of Mesopotamia anti the Holy I,and and the consequent surrender of Turkey. As for Bulgaria, she was beaten largely by the regenerated Serbian army, which had great assistance from the French, Greeks and British. Ser- bia had been wholly overnm in the first few months of the war, but her spirit never died out and in the late summer of 1018 she not only regained her own, bu: forced Bulgaria to her knees. Roumania kept out of the conflict for some time and then joined the al- lies, thought they would have prefer- red that she remain neutral. She -In- vaded Transylvania and at first threatened to give Austria n great deal of trouble, but Germany came to its ally's aid, Russia collapsed and Roumania was forced to give up. Warfare In the Alr. The most picturesque side of the great conflict has been the war in the air. It was quickly seen Met the air- plane would [day a big part In the war, and every beillgerent.nation soon had powerful' air fleete. The niachlnee were enlarged and improved beyond all Imagining, and from mere obser- vation planes became fighting and bombing machines of vast Importance. .Extept for observation purposes, the lighter than air craft were utilized only by Germany. She pinned her faith to the great dirigible Zeppelins, but these on the whole proved a dis- mal failure. True to her savage pot isY, Germany waged unrestricted war (n - urn the air as on hind and semi, Her Zeppelins and planes repeatedly at- tacked London, Paris and Innumerable other unfortItied citles and towns, and her airmen made a practice of bomb- ing Red Cross hospitals. Long before the war closed the allies had established their supremacy in the air, and equal to the best of their flyers were the gallant Ameri- cans who entered that branch of the service. Another novelty of the war was the tank. This machine, based on an American invention and first develop- ed by the British, came as a complete surprise to the Germans and they tied in terror from its bristling guns and Its crushing weight. They tried mak- ing tanks for themselves, but never caught up with the improvements brought out by the allies. The net results of the Great Wni cannot be stated yet.
