ally of England. The prime movers of
the allied Anglo-American money In
terests are now also actually engaged
In formulating the nefarious plot of
robbing the American people of their
savings which were in gooa iaun u
poslted by them In bur banks. In trust
and life Insurance companies, and in
our savings funds for home use. They
want to aid England and to enable her
to continue the war which shs Is now
waging to retain ths mastery of the
seas and to control the commerce of all
the world for alt times. I call upon all
patriotic American cltiicns to psts res
olutions In every American society or
association to express their abhorrence
of this unpatriotic and pro-British
scheme and to earnestly appeal to the
President of the United States and the
Secretary of State to thwart this ivll
conspiracy; a conspiracy which would
rpb the American people of the money
wherewith It can alone develop the
natural resources of our land, Increase
our industries and extend our owh
commerce across the seas. Improve our
means of Internal transportation and
aid our agriculture.
I call upon eyery true American to
write to.eVery financial Institution In
which he has deposited money, protest
ing against the use of his money for
the proposed Anglo-French $1,000,MK,COO
loan. C. J. HEXAMER.
MONET NEEDED AT HOME.
In addition to this message. Doctor
Hexamer stated that he would later ad
vise every depositor In a bank to with
draw all the money he does not actually
need and Invest It In United States securi
ties. State and municipal bonds, flrsUclass
public utilities and Industrial bonds.
"I would protest Just as violently It
the money were to go to Germany," con
tinued Doctor Hexamer. "We need it here
to develop our own industries, especially
our shipping, which is outrageously sup
pressed. We need It for our tnternat
transportation, which is utterly Inade
quate. I have Just traveled by rail over
a great part of the United States and I
am wondering what we would do If our
single-track railroads were suddenly
called upon to transport troops, muni
tions and supplies from one part of the
country to the other. They cannot even
handle the passenger traffic. We need
our money to build our railroads."
Tho report that German sympathizers
would endeavor to float a $500,000,000 Ger
man loan to absorb money intended for
the Anglo-French loan was denounced ns
a llo by Doctor Hexamer.
"It Is comparable to the fake stories
circulated about strikes at Essen at the
tlmo of the English workmen's protests,"
he said. "You will remember, too, that
our press was supplied with news of a
great Russian victory coincident with
the news that the Czar had taken com
mand of the Russian armies."
Doctor Hexamer suddenly wheeled
about In his chair.
"It Is deplorable that the men., the real
patriots, who are trying to keep this
country out of war, are maligned as
traitors," he said, earnestly. "When the
Impartial history of these times Is writ
ten the people will see that It was tho
German-American clement. In its calm do
liberation, that kept us out of war. They
can revllo me and threaten me. but I am
Just so much an American that I will not
keep quiet now when I know that my
country Is in danger,
"My father and all his brothers fought
against tho present Kaiser's grandfather
In tho republican army and were com
pelled to come with Carl Schurz to this
coutry, where I was born and have al
ways lived. My father was knocked,
down at the polls In Hobpken whllo
working for Fremont and my uncle.
Adolph Hexamer, was stoned while
stumping for Lincoln. Ha also com
manded Battery A, of New Jersey, in
the Civil War.
"But, In spite of all this, I am almost
forced to believe that the only unhyphen
ated Americans are the Canadians, Aus
tralians and Britons who sit' In newspa
per offices and tell us American citizens
what to do to avoid being traitors. It
Doctor Hexamer was positive that the
country at large demands peace.
"I have Just returned from a 10,000
mile trip, which took about two months,
and I talked with persons ranging from
Pullman conductors to Governors and
Mayors,", he said. "They all want peace.
With only one exception, this country Is
united for peace and that exception is
the ammunition maker with his profit
sharers." NO RELIEF IN SIGHT
