Are 3,000,000 German*
On the Western Front.
London, Murch 27.—Telegraphing
, late Tuesday, the correspondent of
the Daily Mail and British headquar
ter* in France, pays that nearly two
thirds of the entire strategic reserve
of the German army now has been
thrown into the fierce and vigorous
"This German reserve," he adds,
"consists of 86 divisions, totaling 1,
275,000 men, out of a total numlier
now reaching not far short of 200
' divisions, or possibly 3,000,000 men.
which they have upon the west front.
After the first day 31 of these divi
Isions were put into the battle. On
the third day another 21 are known to
have taken part. Since then they
must have drawn upon the reserve for
a few more division*.
"It is therefore clear that we have
been struggling with the whole avail
able strength of the German army,
»nd the marvel I* that our soldiers
have held out so obstinately and
••tsedlly against odd* so heavily

THIS IS LABOR'S WAR.
This in labor's war. No element of
the people of thia country, or of other
countries, would suffer more than the
worker* from a German victory—a
German peace. ,
What the Germane mean by a
"strong peace," a "German peace,"
was recently expressed hy Gen. Von
l.iebert, a leading rrussian conserva
"For uk there t* but one principle
to be followed, and we recognize no
other. We hold that might is right.
Wc must know neither sentiment, hu
manity,-consideration, nor compassion.
We must have Belgium and the north
of France. France must be mud* to1
pay until she is bled white. We muiit
have a strong peace."
Mr. Gompers spoke well for Ameri
can labor when he said.
"The Republic of the United States
is not perfect; it has the imperfec
tions of the human—but it is the best
country on the face of the earth, and
thone who do not love it enough to
work for it, to fight for it, to die for it,
are not worthy of the privilege of liv
ing in it.
"I say to the Kaiser, I say to the
Germans, in the name of the Ameri
can labor movement: You cant talk
peace with the American workers; you
can't talk peace with us; you can't
talk to us at all now. We a>-e fitt
ing now, Either you smash your
Kaiser autocracy or we vrill fma«h it
