One of the telegrams. Senator Wat son ald, was from a former major in the army and said he could "assist in substantiating the charges." Another from a resident of Philadelphia, of fered to give two photographs similar to that presented recently by Senator Watson, as showing a gallows. The Phlladelphian, whose name was not made public by the Georgia senator, said he saw one hanging on the Meuse of a negro in uniform and could sup ply "positive proof" of the hanging. The correspondent did not say whether the hanging was after a court-martior not. In presenting his documents. Sena tor Watson, with much show of feel ing, clashed with several senators and was reminded by Vice President Cool- idge that he should "proceed In order" and "observe senate rules." Mr. Watson said that a former Geor gia soldier was en route here to furn ish proof of the hanging charges, and y that he might appoint him as his so that he might stand by the senator's side in the chamber to aid In proof. Senator Watson then had senate clerks read a large number of letters, telegrams and newspaper clippings into the record, all reporting alleged cruelties to or mistreatment of soldiers. T would be glad to disbelieve these charges," said Mr. Watson. "If proof Is submitted that they are not true, I would be glad to know they are not true." He then added: 'I can show and I will show that officers had men shot with no trial whatever."' Facing the Republicans and shoving out his chin.

II HANGING CHARGES New York Wilhelm of the house of Hohensollern, now sawing wood at his exile home Haus Doom In Holland has just as good a chance of going back to Germany as kaiser as I have. The difference in the two cases is that I can't and don't want to, while Wil helm can't, but may want to. Americans ask the question, "Will Wilhelm come back?' perhaps more frequently than any other about Germany. The answer is an unequivocal "no," If words and deeds of the days since the revolution In Germany are any criterion. Germany doesn't want Wilhelm back. Not even the men who frankly strive for restoration of the monarchical system In Germany want him to head It. To the Socialists of Germany and they are legion Kaiser Wilhelm is a quitter. He fled like a coward In the nation's darkest hour, they say, and any attempt on his part or that of overzealoua friends to restore him would be met with overwhelming opposition. Germany proved what it thought of monarchists when It put a crimp in Herr Kapp's private promonarchistlc "putsch" last year ; and since that time the national feeling hasn't swung any more in favor of return of a moarchy. The Erzberger demonstration, a demonstration against reaction, showed that the junkers and the rabid mon archists who seek to restore the old order through assassination and terrorism haven't a chance. I would scarcely venture to assert that a constitutional monarch, such as England's, would not one day come to Germany. But at the , moment the consciousness of the people Is for a democracy. The eight-hou- r day about the only fruit of the revolution pleases the German worker, and he knows If a monarchy returns he will exchange it for an Industrial slavery of twelve to fourteen hours a day at low wages. The men who want a monarchy back are, for the most part, disgrunt led individuals, who have lost money or position through the overturn. Released officers curse the new regime. But for the average man, the repub lic is satisfactory. Its overturn might perhaps come about through tax burdens, for the promon- archlsts appeal to the ignorant with the plea that things were better "In the old days" neglecting to point out that a lost war with a staggering debt and new economic conditions would not make the common man's lot easi er, even under a kaiser. The monarchists talk of the crown prince's son as a possible throne can didate; others would have a Bavarian monarch. But the monarcnTsts themselves with, of course some exceptions say, "Let the republic carry the hod, repair the country, and then let us in, sny ten or twenry years, seek to restore a monarchy. over-heav- y s ed n - ' LEG NEARLY TORN FROM In the little town of Marlon.

In Overbrook, a suburb of I'hlladelphta they have a whole troop of blind youngsters who astonish everybody who watches them by their prowess. They do practically everything otrer scouts do and In some things even excel their comrades with two good eyes. They have an almost uncanny sense of direction and highly developed touch perception.
