Von Hindenburg, the second presi-
dent of the German republic, a wolf
disguised in sheep's clothing, a mili-
tarist posing as a peace promoter, a
royalist the chief executive of a free
government! The very name of the
Field Marshal Paul brings to the mind
of the world alleged German atroci-
ties, the Kaiser's so-called plans for
world dominion, and the horrors of
the past war.
It is this feeling of revulsion and
alarm which is bound to sweep
through the nations that is the prin-
cipal cause for disappointment over
the result of Sunday's poll. It is in-
evitable that suspicion of Germany's
designs will be augmented. There will
be more talk about her failure to com-
ply with the Versailles treaty, there
will be fear that the Dawes plan will
* he cast aside by the new regime, and
there will be renewed apprehension
concerning the possible ascendancy
of Germany in the future. All that
has been gained in the past few
months toward a promotion of the
comparatively cordial relations be-
twee4 former hated rivals seems
about to be cast aside.
The German people will not be long
in realizing this. At present those
who voted for Von Hindenburg prob-
ably do not appreciate how they have
been duped by a combination of ill-"
gained popularity and political bom-1
bast. The light will be seen only when
the sentiments of the rest of the world
begin to take concrete form in re-
fusals of financial backing and the
like-if such proves to be necessary.
As a matter of fact the result of the
election is probably n'ot as serious as
the feeling it will arouse. Though it
cannot be doubted that the nationalist
faction of which Von Hindenburg is
the leader has designs on some res-
toration of the monarchy and that theI
Hohenzollerns hope in the future to
occupy positions of power there is lit-
tl, likelihood of this taking place.

mercially, too dependent on the world
