Today the yellow peril is forgotten
in the presence of the now Riant that
has arisen in the cast. It is the peril
of the eventual Slav domination of Eu
rope. This is npparent in Germany's
great military preparation.
Since the days of Bismarck Germany
has realized dimly the potentialities of
the vast districts eastward, but it took
the lessons of the Balkan war to awak
en the Germans thoroughly to the pos
sibilities of the rise of this great pow
er in Asia and the near east.
And so, in days of great financial
stringency, when the markets are al
ready depressed and Germany and
Prussia are floating loans of 5.T0.000.
000 marks, comes the startling an
nouncement that 1,000,000,000 marks,
or $230,000,000, will bo asked for im
mediate armament purposes and a
permament addition of 200,000,000
marks to the yearly military budget.
The immensity of the contribution
asked can bo understood when it is
considered that the annual savings of
the entire Gorman people amount only
to about 4,000,000,000 marks. The
amount asked for military purposes,
therefore, will absorb a quarter of this,
to say nothing of the regular annual
expenditure added to the permanent
Demands Stagger German Public.
It is not alone the immensity of the
sum demanded that has staggered Ger
mans and tho whole of Europe as well,
but also tho recollection that when the
nddition of somo 30,000 men annually
to tho standing army was asked last
year the military authorities assured
tho nation that tho increase asked
would sufllco to make Germany stroug
enough to resist all aggression that
could he expected and to protect all
her interests. Yet now they come with
nn unprecedented demand for 1,000,
000,000 marks and an increase in tho
number of the army which it was at
first understood would be 50,000 year
ly, but now, it is understood, wlil
amount to 84,000, raising tho standing
army to a peace footing of more than
As an explanation of this the semi
official Cologne Gazette comes out with
"For tho present our armament is
sufficient. What is asked is provision
for the future. In the bloody hours
before Kirk Klllso the face of affairs
began to change, and an alteration in
conditions began which will become
history with the signing of tho peace

her military forces. It is not tho sud

sary had things remained as they were
before the war, but it Is the fact that
with the notional and military rise of
the Balkan states and tho temporary
elimination of Turkey ns an armed
power a shifting in relative strength
lias taken place to benefit the entire
Kaiser's View Altered.
It Is an opuu secret that the kaiser
has been averse to any Increase in the
army which might appear unwarrant
ed. In fact, many army officers have
been known, when conversing with
friends on whose discretion they de
pended, to say more or less bitter things
about the emperor's love for peace and
to make dire predictions as to whither
his very real aversion for war was
likely to lead the country.
It Is now reported, however, that the
kaiser has become convinced that the
time to act has arrived and that tho
new proposal was Inspired by him. It
Is fairly certain, In any event, that he
Is tho author of the proposal that 1,000,
000,000 marks be raised by taxation on
tho country's great fo; tunes and that
tho princes surrender for this purpose
their ordinary exemption from taxa
tion. The emperor has pointed out that
Jhe year 1813 was a year of unex
ampled sacrifices by the people and
that no bettor way could bo found to
celebrate the anniversary of tho free
ing of Prussia from the foreign yoke
than by this sacrifice.
The extent of the sacrifice proposed
can be judged from tho fact that the
entire tnxablo valuation of the Ger
man empire probably docs not exceed
200,000,000,000 marks, or $.'0,000,000.
000. It is proposed, however, to ex
empt small fortunes up to perhaps GO,
000 marks from the tax. This would
eliminate a considerable part of the
whole and impose a really tremendous
burden on tho richest.
No Serious Objection.
Tho German nntlon has a right to bo
proud of tho fact that thus for no se
rious objection hns been urged against
tho scheme, although It must be ad
mitted that the Prussian "Junker" or
gans nppoar rnther lukewarm regard
ing the matter. In general, however,
tho response has been gratifying. But
tho effect on the financial situation of
the empire and ns a consequence on
the financial world generally is bound
to bo to a considerable extent disas
trous. Tho money mnrket is already very
tight. Peace in the near cast will give
rise to now demands for money, naif
tho now Prussian and imperial loan
subscriptions, amounting fo 275,000,000
marks, must bo paid on March 27. A
great many cities have been awaiting
n favorable time for floating loans,
which will now probably have to wait

along tho eastern frontier.

Paris Physician Astonishes Medical
Fraternity With Alleged Discovery.
A controversy rages in Paris over
the announcement of R. Robinson that
ho has found a way to control the sex
of tho unborn. Ills experiments have
been mado in collaboration with Dr.
Carlo Basilc of Rome.

is obtained also from egg yolk and
from animal nerve tissues.
Adrenalin is an extract of the glands

Evidence of Female Superiority Shown

An extraordinary manifestation of
