BLAME WAR ON KAISER
', PARTS, Aug. 4.
Joseph, Itolnachl a well-known Deputri
has lnunehed In the Figaro -what, In the
opinion of many well-informed persona
here, Is likely to become the Allied watch
word, "Away with the Mohenzollernst"
"Tho Allies," says llelnach, 'will agree
there shall be no treaty with William of
Ilohenzollern or with any member of his
family. Unless I am greatly mistaken, the
question of tho Hohenzoltorns will become
more Important every day. It Is too vague
to speak of destroying German militarism,
German militarism Is tho houso of ilohen
zollern, with Its feudal castes and all Its
birds of prey.
"I have shown 20 times that tho war
a the personal work of the German'
Emperor. Exactly when he began to pre
meditate It oven he docs not know.
"But It Is a fact that he had taken his

bosomed himself to the Belgian King about
the necessity of war soon and his certainty
"It Is a fact that finally, as the accom
plice of Austria's ultimatum to Serbia, the
Kaiser's own hand abolished all chanco of
peace. Ho refused the conference proposed
by England nnd the arbitration of The
Hague offered by tho Czar, and declared war
on Bussla at tho very moment when tho
Vienna Government had welcomed Pctro
grad's proposals. And this though every
pretext had vanished.
"Since tho drlvo through Belgium failed
and his bright dream of victory vanished,
Ince tho German nation rises hungry nnd
bears the hatred of tho world, whllo the
horizon Is lowering with menace, tho Ger
man Emperor Is afraid and says, 'I willed ft,
"Then who did will It? Ills feudal chiefs,
his junkers, tho Crown Prince nnd tils'
Agrarians wilted It, too, but the Germany
of tho Hohcnzollcrns Is no aristocracy, oli
garchy or democracy. There la one lord
and mastor, the Hohcnzollern, tho Emperor.
It Is ho who willed, who ordered, who began
this war. He Is tho master assassin. Brit
ish Premier ABqulth has said this In solemn
declaration before tho Houso of Commons.

SETTLE "THEFT" CASE
Accused Little Girl Satisfied She
"Didn't Do It"
Maria Romero, the little fi-year-old child
In Glenolden who was accused by a neigh
bor, Mrs. Mary Abel, of having stolen a
hymn book from the Iatter"a daughter, Is
free of all prospect of the law's menace.
There was a hearing last night before Jus

It that the little girl was left out of tho
wrangling and the blame put where he sold
It belonged on the respective mothers.
The costs of the trouble-making, whose
ever fault It was, were divided, and as soon
aa the agreement Is put In writing the two
mothers will sign It pledging each other to
maintain the neighborly peace In the future.
Taking away the charge does not lift a
weight from Maria's neck. The weight
was never there. The accusation didn't
bother that pretty little girl for a minute ;

NEGRO BOY, RECLAIMED FROM DELINQUENCY,
WOULD NAME GOAT AFTER BELOVED JUDGES
Combination Title of Raymond-Charles Suggested by Youth to Show His Apprecia
tion to MacNeille and Brown Question of Propriety Puzzles Opinion at
House of Detention
A momentous question Is dividing opinion
between two factions nt tho Houso of De
tention. Shall tho behjved goat of Edward Turner,
who makes his home at the House of Deten
tion, be named after Judge Charles I
Brown or Judgo Itnymond MacNeille? For,
says llttlo Edward Turner, don't people
nlways name their chlldhen or tho animals
they like best after tho peoples they admire
And, says Edward, tho Judges aro alt tho
family ho has. Ho likes them both very
much, and maybo they'd like It. If they
don't, of course ho won't do It, but If the
Judges nppreclato tho honor In tho spirit In
which It Is conferred, Edward Turner's gont
will soon bo christened Raymond-Charles.
Tho regeneration of Edward nnd tho
acquisition of tho goat, according to every
one at tho House of Detention, Is a Btory
worthy of a flvo reel film.
"Edward mado his first appoaranco," said
Judge MacNeille, "beforo tho Juvenile Court
about a year and a half ago. 'Ho was
scared to death by tho Court and even
moro afraid of an Institution. Edward had
an unusually vicious temper."
Edward, beforo ho was brought to the
Court, lived in one of the negro sections
of tho city with an old negro woman, whom
ho loved and called Mammy. As far as
his memory could tell he hadn't any father
Because ho was so very lame Edward
was allowed many privileges by tho police.

But as Edward grow older his gnng, of
which ho waB leader, grew mq.ro riotous. His
violent temper, plus his crutch, wrought
more damage than oven tho kind-hearted
could endure. So Edward eventually found
htmsdlf In tho House of Detention.
"I guess I was plumb discouraged" Is the
way Edward accounts for his spasm of
tomper nnd madness that camo over him
that day. "I kinder didn't know what was
going to happen to me."
But Edward objected so strenuously to
being sent to an Institution that the Judge
decided to let him stay for ft few weekB In
tho quarters for children at tho House of
Detention. And though Edward gave a
homo for negro boys a week's trial, it was
found better by both Edward and tho fac
ulty of the home to bring him back to
Twenty-second nnd Arch streets.
In a short time Edward became accli
mated to his now homo. Truthfully, there
aro still talcs, almost forgotten, of tho
danger ono ran In being close to Edward
whon that tcrrlblo temper broko out. For
tunately for many who bear no scars from
these occasions, Edward's aim was very
bad. But any ono who tells thoso stories
today Is looked on as nn embryo teller of
A bootblack stand nnd outfit were given
to Edward and from that time on the re
sponsibility of property sobered the boy.
He felt ho had n stnko In tho world and
he couldn't afford to Jeopardize It.
"Every morning that tho court was In
session," said Judgo MacNeille, "Edward

Physicians Accused of Failing to Re
port Cases of Infectious Diseases
' HAGEUSTOWN. Md.. Aug. 4. Prosecu
tions of physicians for failure to report in
fectious diseases to the Stato Board of
Health havo been begun. Several promi
nent medical men are Involved, but the
hearing of the cases will be delayed until
the recovery of patients. So far, Dr. I. M.
Zimmerman, of Willlamsport, has been
found guilty, but sentence has been sus
pended. Doctor Zimmerman's caso was one
of typhoid fever. Tho patient died soon
after the discovery of the disease, and the
doctor thought the certificate of death at
trlbutlng the cause to typhoid fever was
sufficient, and did not fill the infectious dis
ease blank. He learned that the State board
requires notice of disease when It develops.

How tho brown and whlto goat came to
Edward Is still another story. One day ho
told a friend In tho houso that ho wanted
to buy nn express wagon. After that was
acquired ho decided to buy a harness, then
n blanket, then a whip, nnd lastly tho goat.
Tho first day tho goat was Edward's was
a gala day at tho House of Detention.
Edward drovo tho goat and wngon through
the corridor of tho house. Ho offered him
bread and milk, but Edward says tho gont
declined tho fare. To provide a lodging
houso for his now friend Edwnrd appealed
to tho other members of his family.
A petition was sent to Judge Charles L.
Brown for permission to uso his untenanted
stnblo on tho property of the Magdalen
Home. The petition was granted, nnd tho
goat, an yet unnamed, housed.
Buster, tho dog of the houso, has not quite
ndjustcd his feelings to second place In Ed
ward's directions. There Is a story that
when Buster for the second time had been
enptured by tho dog catcher and tho powers
that bo at tho House of Detention demurred
at paying the fine, Edward dug down Into
the nickels nnd dlmca accumulated by much
shining of shoes and offered to pay the
amount necessary to bring Buster back
Vhen told how proud Judgo MacNeille
Is of his progress since a guest at th Houso,
Edward grinned sweetly and said:
"Ain't I Just proud of him, too. I'd
surely feel bad If ho ever had to go."
